That’s right, Melbourne’s biggest fighting game tournament is back and better than ever, we’ve stepped it up this year and have an even better venue just blocks from the location of last years event. We’ll also have a longer schedule with the possibility of additional games and side-tournaments.
We hope to see you there because this year it’s going to be huge.
October 2nd and 3rd, 2010
Event Room 2: CQ, 123 Queen Street, Melbourne VIC 3000
CQ is located at the very centre of Melbourne’s CBD. It is approximately a 5 minute walk from Flinders Street Station and a 10 minute walk from Southern Cross Station.
We have organised an accommodation discount with the venue, so you can stay upstairs from the tournament, and simply (shower and then) roll on down in the morning to continue the action.
Prices are: $139 a night for a Superior Room (normal price $159)
$159 a night for a Deluxe Room (normal price $179)
Both rooms can include two king sized beds and thus can be shared
Brochure here (see page 5):
To get the discounted rate, simply state when booking that you are attending for BAM and they will ensure you get the lower rate accordingly.
This place is a little more upmarket than last years, so I believe the rates are a little bit higher. The venue however is very central, so if you wish to opt for a cheaper option many other hotels and backpackers are within easy walking distance. Even last years venue is only 5-10 minutes walk away.
BAM2010 will continue the tradition of last years event by maintaining competitions for all the official games that were run last year, or their logical sequels.
Super Street Fighter IV
Street Fighter III: Third Strike
BlazBlue: Continuum Shift
Super Smash Bros. Brawl
Super Smash Bros. Melee
However we are also pleased to note that pending community interest we will be adding a 3D stream to the timetable, which should also accommodate players of Tekken 6, Virtua Fighter 5 and Soul Calibur IV with an official tournament, and possibly more.
We are also pleased to announce that we will have more time in the venue this year, and as such may have the capacity to add several new games to the schedule. If there’s something you’d like to see become an official tournament, please let us know, and it will be considered.
The site will go live soon and we will start to take pre-registration as soon as that happens.
$25 pre-registration or $30 at the door
Each official tournament will have it’s own entrance fee as posted on the site when it launches.
Coming very soon!

BAM is a tournament for the community, if there’s something you’d like to see this year, we’d love to hear from you. Hit up this thread, or talk to any of the Couch Warriors staff at a ranbat event and we’ll be happy to take it on board. Want state vs state exhibition matches? Want new games? Let’s hear it.
And most of all…
