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.

OUR DISCORD

We have built the biggest online fighting game community in Australia, bringing together over 500 gamers from around the region.

We are proud to support offline events such as CouchWarriors and OzHadou, and regularly encourage players we meet online to join the real life fighting game community, or to try attending an offline tournament or event.

We have all the best players in the region on our discord, but we work hard to support new players as well. Come and find a mentor, a battle lounge, or take part in our Fledgling Fight Nights.

OUR TEAM

Beginning in mid-2017, we have been sponsoring select players to represent us at major offline events! We currently have six sponsored players, based in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane.

In addition to the players who we support financially, we have a larger core of Team Members who rep the WP tag at local, national, and international tournaments.

We're expecting to make some major announcements regarding our sponsored players in the coming months.
