The softer side of Battle Arena Melbourne

Steve Wright writes, "I’m no stranger to eSports events, and as a result, I wasn’t in a terrible hurry to get to Couch Warriors’ fifth annual Battle Arena Melbourne (BAM) event this past Saturday afternoon. I walked into the building the tournament was housed in and could easily tell where I needed to go simply by following the click-click-clicking of fighting sticks being slammed about as gamers tried to best one another.

"In the hallway leading the main room, the temperature began to rise. Unfortunately, it was accompanied by an odour I couldn’t help but attribute to hundreds of video game players corralled into an area that needed better air conditioning. I made a mental note to breathe through my mouth whilst giggling and chastising myself at the same time about that thought and its connection to those already at the tournament." (Culture, Injustice: Gods Among Us)
