The inaugural season of Gfinity's Australian city-based esports league wrapped up over the weekend with a southern rout. Having solidified their position in the finals of all three games, Melbourne Order turned the weekend into a whitewash, taking home the trophy in all three matches and the club championship to boot.
R. Mika is a strong Street Fighter 5 character, maybe one of the best in the game. Despite receiving numerous adjustments by the developers in a recent patch, she continues to make her mark on the competitive landscape thanks to players like Du "NuckleDu" Dang and Keita "Fuudo" Ai.

If you're this kind of gamer, you might like to know that Street Fighter 5 is your friend. You might not have the ability to turn off every single particle effect, but you can make the game look really, really shitty if you want to.
Yesterday we posted how JB Hi-Fi stores around Australia were waged in a nationwide competition against each other to produce the best point-of-sale art for the launch of Street Fighter 5.
