Battle Arena Melbourne 6 continued its streak of being the largest tournament in Australia by bringing in over 200 participants. With the first place prize being a plane ticket to Singapore for South East Asia Majors, our 4th Capcom Pro Tour Premier event, the Australian Fighting Game Community came out in full force. With Australia’s best such as DB|Carnage, Heavy Weapons, SL|Justice, DB|ToXY and SL|Sol in attendance, it was truly up in the air on who would represent Australia in Singapore. When it was all said and done however, it was SL|Sol who took home the 1st place finish. With this result he now has 128 ranking points, and a great chance to earn a qualification spot to the Capcom Cup at South East Asia Majors next month.

After being sent to losers earlier on in the tournament by EG|Ricky Ortiz, PIE Zeus fought his way back to the Grand Finals by taking out EG|Justin Wong, TS|Sabin and many others.
