ONE EVENING IN 2016, CARBUNCLE DECIDED TO CREATE A DISCORD CHANNEL FOR FELLOW WHIRLPOOL FORUM MEMBERS TO ORGANISE SFV GAMES.
From those humble beginnings, Team WP has grown into Australasia's largest online fighting game community, with over 500 members regularly visiting our discord. We host and stream tournaments for Street Fighter V and Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite, and arrange matchups and mentoring for almost every fighting game.
We provide financial support for our six sponsored team members to attend offline events, and have a much larger pool of members who fight under the WP tag.
Our legendary Friday Night Battles league is in its third season, and we have now streamed more than 45 online tournaments with over 100 players taking up the challenge.
Although we are no longer affiliated with Whirlpool, we keep WP as a tag as a reminder of our origins.
