    Season 2 of the AusNS2 league is well underway with some intense and fanstastic gameplay coming from all teams so far. As it stands, both envy and hello are tied at the top of the leaderboard on 8 points each, closely followed by RaZe, The Bottom End, and Gorge of Nazareth. However, with 8 rounds remaining, anything is possible. Team Tummy, who are the newest clan on the scene may easily be lulling everyone into a false sense of security and be bringing out their big tums in the middle of the tournament.




    This season, there is a massive battle occuring in the low-mid tier of the league, meaning that many of new teams are getting to experience many close rounds to fight their way to the top. This weeks match of Numero Onos vs Aus looks to be cracker, and will be a close match for sure that could go anyones way. Team Intent vs Gorge of Nazareth also poses to be another interesting game. You can find a full write up of community memeber nezz's predictions here.


    However, one of the biggest matchs this week, and probably for the season, is happening this Sunday at

    Hello vs Envy
    9pm AEDT | 2am PST | 11am CET

    It is sure to be a whopping clash between some of the best players in Aus. If philogl manages not to get stuck under any stairs, we should be in for some close rounds. This match will be cast, and we post an update on that shortly.

    This weekend, the top four teams in the NS2WC from Europe and America will be duking it out live in the ESL studio in cologne for the coveted title of world champions.

    Whilst the only Australian team, Ascension, didn't manage to make the semi-finals (falling short to Godar in the quarter finals), the event should still be great to watch. You can catch the cast live at twitch.tv/naturalselection2 at 3am AEDT Sunday morning



    The Teams:Godar, Saunamen, Legendary Snails, Titus Gaming



    There are rumours that Titus have been practicing very hard and I am personally looking forward to their match against Suanamen. What games are you guys looking forward to? Who do you think will be in the finals? Who will win?
