    This is just a reminder that season 4 is only 1 week away. With team entries closing on the 22th March Sunday it's still not to late for those looking to form new teams. We currently have 8 teams already signed up in what looks be our closest season yet. With many strong teams already battling it out for the top spot before the season has even begun.

    Who will reign supreme? Will asc . be able to reclaim their season 1 glory? Can Hungry Together finally be the bride or are they doomed to be the bridesmaid forever? Can AUS, as the oldest clan rise to the challenge or will they get the SHAFT! Stay tuned as this season is only starting to heat up.

    UPDATE:

    Well folks we're half way through the Xmas Draft Tournament - after some good games last Sunday, here are the results so far:




    A reminder that the draft will continue this Sunday 14th at the same start time of 4pm. Please be on time so that we can get the games started asap.

    It is time again for another Draft Tournament! This xmas tournament will be mostly the same, and will have the same changes we made last time to include more people, and make the teams that little bit fairer. We have had very successful tournaments in the past and we are looking to improve on this with every tournament we run.

    The tournament is open to everyone of every skill level looking to participate in the competitive 6v6 environment. You don't need to be the best shooter or chomper - you just need to turn up to play some fun games of NS2! We would like to encourage everyone outside of the regular comp community to sign up, and for those already signed up to spread the word to others who might be interested.

    The changes that we previously implemented were as follows:


    • Open to US/SEA NS2 players!
    • There will be an extra team grading process after the draft night for fairness.
    • AusNS2.org Forum Signup is mandatory.



    Tournament Dates:

    Sunday 7th December 2014 and Sunday 14th December 2014.

    Draft Night is 4th December 6pm AEDT.

    Please note: this is a one week signup period, due to the proximity to Christmas time.

    Last night marked the last weekly game of the season - and now the finals shall begin. As you can see, we have some tied up scores lines just to make it more interesting!

    As such, Zeta Void and A-Team will play a best of five decider to see who makes it into the semi finals (same as format below).

    With Envy and Hungry Together tied for first spot, we've decided to let envy take first seed based on their rankings from previous seasons. This means that Envy will play the winner of the A-Team vs Zeta Void in the semi finals.

    Hungry Together will play Pi in the other semi final match. Ideally we would like these semi finals to be played over the next week, but we understand that its coming up to the busy end of the year. Could the captains of the teams above please get in contact and sort out your availabilities. Once you find an agreed time, can you post it in the forums so we can try organize streaming.

    The format


    For the semis and the A-team Zeta Void decider, the format will be a best of 5.

    NB: We're going to do things a little bit differently this season. We're going to try out a veto system for the maps.


    How it works:


    Best of Five Semi Final

    • In turns, teams will veto a map from the map pool below. Each team gets 2 vetos. They take turns in vetoing the maps.
    • From the remaining three maps, admins will randomise them, and two will be picked to be played. The third map is discarded.
    • Should the score be 2-2, there will be a coin toss for the final map.
    • The winner of the coin toss will pick either a map from the unused maps pool or side/race that they want to play, the other team will then pick a map or side/race, depending on what the first team chose.


    The map pool is:

    ns2_summit
    ns2_tram
    ns2_biodome
    ns2_descent
    ns2_caged
    ns2_jambi
    ns2_veil

    Best of Seven Finals

    • In turns, teams will veto a map from the map pool below. Each team gets 1 vetos. They take turns in vetoing the maps. Veto 1, Veto 2.
    • In turns, teams will then pick a map they want to play from the remaining pool. Pick 3, Pick 4.
    • From the remaining three maps, admins will randomise them, and two will be picked to be played. The third map is discarded.
    • Should the score be 3-3, there will be a coin toss for the final map.
    • The winner of the coin toss will pick either a map from the unused pool or side/race that they want to play, the other team will then pick a map or side/race, depending on what the first team chose.



    Some exciting games on the horizon. We will keep you posted with stream times should they become available.

    We wish the best of luck to all the teams involved in the finals, and would like to thank all the teams for participating in this season. It has been great!

    Season three is now live!


    You can find the full schedule here: http://ausns2.org/league.php?r=schedule&leagueid=3

    The matchup schedule was randomly generated. All maps for each round were pre-determined.

    You can find the full set of rules here. Please read them: http://ausns2.org/league.php?r=rules


    • Captains - please be very diligent organising times for your matches. All matches must be played before the end of each week.
    • Captains - use the inbuilt system on the league page to organise and accept match times.
    • Kodiak is a playable map this season. Best to start practicing on it sooner rather than later.
    • We are using Comp Mod v3.
    • At the end of the season, the top 4 teams will make it to the semi finals.


    Good luck to all teams!

    Week One of the AusNS2 Rising Stars has finished and we are two days into Week Two as of this post! So far, this has been an absolute blast for us to organise and we hope that you guys have enjoyed playing and spectating the matches so far!

    So here is the rundown of the past week for those of you that missed it!



    10 matches were played this past week with 5 more to go this week.

    These are the matches coming up.



    So as you can see there are still quite a few interesting matchups waiting to happen!


    The ladder looks like this so far:



    Intent Tummy and Pi are 1 point apart from each other at this stage, Intent, while at the top right now, only have 1 more match to play. Let's see who will get to the top and move on to the Finals!

    Remember, these matches will probably be casted or recorded this week.

    Casters tend to be more spontaneous so we will announce on the AusNS2 Twitter and in the Stream Announcements Thread here on AusNS2.

    Many games have already been uploaded from last week which can be found in this thread.

    We hope the rest of the tournament is an enjoyable one.

    Welcome to our newest tournament – the inaugural AusNS2 Rising Stars Tournament! Also known as the AusNS2: Rise of the Tummy Tournament, this tournament is specifically aimed at allowing low tier and mid tier clans/players an arena to duke it out in. As such, no high skilled teams or players will be allowed to participate/use their aimbots in this tournament.

    We listened to your feedback during Season 2, and although we’re not going to create divisions for the upcoming Season 3 of the AusNS2 league, we do want to give you guys the opportunity to play in a more even official playing field.

    The format will be exactly the same as the Draft Tournament – round robin. After the round robin has concluded, the two teams with the most points will face off in the Tournament grand finals.

    Tournament default playing dates:

    Sunday 20th July 2014 and Sunday 27th July 2014 (TBC)

    **Please note: These are the default playing times. It is permissible for teams to play throughout the week at a pre-arranged time that has been confirmed by both teams and AusNS2 admins.

    Rising Stars Tournament Map Pool:


    ns2_summit

    ns2_tram

    ns2_kodiak

    ns2_veil

    ns2_caged

    ns2_biodome

    ns2_jambi

    The two teams with the most points will face off in the tournament grand finals.

    The score and bracket for the tournament will be hosted by challonge.com.

    Rules:


    1. Round Robin tournament rules as dictated by the Admin team and those on challonge.com

    2. Entry is strictly open to Australasian teams only (sorry Americans but this will be a local only tournament for now).

    3. This tournament is strictly open to low and mid tier clans/teams. Any top tier teams that enter will be deemed inadmissible by the AusNS2 admins.

    4. Any top tier players (as deemded by AusNS2 admins) that are entered in team rosters will be ineligible to play. As a point of reference, the top four teams from the AusNS2 Season 2 league (Envy, Hello. RaZe & The Bottom End) will be ineligible to play. Team AUS downwards are eligible.

    5. AusNS2.org Forum Signup is mandatory for contact, information delivery and rewards.

    6. All other League Rules apply before, during and after matches.

    Coaching is permissible, but only from spectating. Coaches may only comment after a game (not live/during a game) for fairness purposes.

    And so ends the June Draft Tournament. A Big thanks to everyone who played, the captains for organizing their teams, and to our lovely casters who captured all the games. We had some great rounds that were much more even this time than our previous drafts. This new format has proven to be a good formula for future drafts. We do encourage feedback, and we will take it on board when planning the next draft.

    For those who missed it, here is a summary of the winners and scores:

    The Winners:




    The Bracket:




    For all the new players that played in the draft, we hope you enjoyed competitive ns2, and we hope you stick around to play in our future competitive events. We encourage you all to either join an existing clan by posting in the clan thread, or start a new clan yourselves. I know there are definately several new people from a variety of different skill levels wanting to join the comp scene after the draft, so we encourage you all to make yourselves known on the forums or on mumble!

    Speaking of which -- stay tuned, as we are about to announce our next competitive event very soon which you wont want to miss !

    Thanks to everyone that signed up! We ended up with 90 players, this is going to be epic!

    Quick reminder that we are going to be using v2 of the CompMod. We still have to figure out servers because of the DZ ddos but if you run a server that we will be using, CompMod v2 needs to be installed.

    Here is the final team list!


    You can keep up with the scores here where the bracket is hosted and to know who you will be playing in each round!!!! This is important. At least have one look at the bracket.

    For the first weekend, Sunday the 15th of June here are the round times:
    (All times are in AEST, for timezone conversion, I like this website: everytimezone.com )

    Round 1: 4-5pm - ns2_summit
    Round 2: 5-6pm - ns2_tram
    Round 3: 6-7pm - ns2_descent

    ---1 hour break---

    Round 4: 8-9pm - ns2_veil
    Round 5: 9-10pm - ns2_caged

    For the second weekend, Sunday the 22nd June, here are the round times:

    Round 6: 4-5pm - ns2_biodome
    Round 7: 5-6pm - ns2_jambi

    ---1 hour break---

    Round 8: 7-8pm - ns2_tram
    Round 9: 8-9pm - ns2_summit

    Remember with the international nature of this tournament and the huge amount of games that have to be played, these times are subject to being moved, changed or completely and brutally dismembered.

    I will hopefully be streaming as much as I can on both the Sunday's on twitch.tv/ausns2 and kid will be streaming as much as he can on his channel at twitch.tv/kidstreams! I think Ren26 will be jumping in to cast a couple games as well!
