    Last weekend, 4 teams battled it out for the rights to progress to the finals of the inaugural AusNS2 States Tournament.

    With some close fought games, here are the results of the group stage:

    Both Queensland and New South Wales will be progressing to the finals, despite the valiant efforts of both New Zealand and Victoria who fought bravely until the bitter end.

    It seems quite fitting that both Queensland and New South Wales have ended up in the finals, not only because of the skills they have demonstrated during the group stages, but because of the rich history of rivalry between the states. It is this rivalry that has provided sports fans over the years many epic encounters, and will undoubtedly provide a spectacle to behold as some of the best players in Aus duke it out to determine which state reigns supreme.

    As such, what was once a States Tournament has now undoubtedly become:

    Tune in tomorrow night (8/7/15) at 8pm AEDT to see who wins.

    And now for some inspirational words from a man in a completely unrelated medium:

    "We're often told that if we ignore history, we are doomed to repeat it. And certainly if we look at the history of the past 2 years, it would suggest that if these two teams played to their best tonight, then Queensland, in all likelihood, will prevail. They are the proven ones; they are indeed, a champion team. But thats the beauty of sport - this result, is not yet carved in stone. The New South Wales blues, will have their say.

    When the blue's players are handed their server password tomorrow night, they're not just given something to enter with, they're also given a slice of history. They're given an opportunity to create their own history. They're given an invitation to be extraordinary. To beat Queensland tonight, they will need inspiration, and the best place to get that inspiration is from each other out there, on the field of battle. Inspire each other, with your effort. Inspire each other, with your courage. Inspire each other, with your will to win.

    So there it is for New South Wales. Their destiny, is not so much in their own hands, but their destiny could well be decided by what's in their own hearts. Enjoy your origin NS2."

    First things first, we hope everyone had a safe and enjoyable holiday and before we get everyone up to speed on what's happening over the next few months I'd like to take this opportunity to get onto some housekeeping, a general update on the state of NS2 as well as what is happening in the next month or so for within AusNS2. League Season 4

    It is my pleasure to announce that we will be running the 4th Season of the AusNS2 League!

    Signups are already open and will be closing on the 22nd of March! The Season itself starts on Monday the 23rd of March!

    If you have a team to register head to and sign up your team for that round robin action! This season will be similar to the last seasons with the rules located on the homepage of the league. One thing that is still open to discussion is the use of Comp Mod v4 but we will see how that unfolds over the next month!

    New Moderator
    Please welcome Visor to the AusNS2 Admin team as one of our moderators! He is going to be helping us with running tournaments, the forums, as well as being a valuable part of Australian NS2 and all of that good stuff so feel free to say hi and introduce yourself to him if you don't know him already. bonage is also back to help with running the season and future tournaments as well!

    The current admin team is:

    We would like to also thank a few notable members of the community for helping keep the public and competitive scenes alive by running their servers day in and day out. bld and Scatter have been two extremely generous community members that have gone above and beyond in hosting servers for the AusNS2 community, and without them I'm sure the scene would look a lot different than it does now. I know that these guys specifically put a lot of effort into their server setups and weren't just renting a server from a public provider, so huge props to these guys!

    Both the Dangerzone and Scatterverse servers have been taken down indefinitely but you can thank them for their generosity again in those servers if you wish to do so!

    As for current servers, Oozle has provided a couple of servers for public and private use as well as bonage (private) and myself (public). If you have any issues with any of these servers, please feel free to message these operators or post in the appropriate thread in the Server Discussion sub-forum.

    States Tournament
    Just a general reminder that the first round of the States Tournament is happening this weekend, the 1st of March and that the current team list is here and the bracket for the tournament is here.

    UPDATE 21/2/15

    We are aware that many QLD's may or may not be under water at the moment & without internet. We are also aware that people are confused about the date, and may not actually turn up this weekend. With that in mind, We're going to propose the following:

    Date of Group Stages : Sunday 1st March 4pm AEDT
    Format: Best of 4 (2 Maps per game)

    The two teams with the most points will play in the grand final. Should two teams being tied for 2nd place, they will play a bo5 decider to determine who will make it to the final round.

    Date of Grand Final:
    Sunday 8th March 8pm AEDT
    Format of Final: Best of 5

    All the usual AusNS2 rules apply for this tournament, so please check up on them here.

    The Bracket can be found here, and the list of players in each state team here.

    If you have any issues with this, let us know. Please keep in mind we will not be postponing the tournament if certain individuals are unable to make it. We have to get this done and start the next season of the league.
