    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.

    State of NS2
    The future of NS2 is looking bright as the CDT look forward to developing more patches and content for NS2. Keep your eye on their space as who knows what they will come up with!

    CDT Trello
    CDT Twitter

    That's all for now folks! If you guys like these kinds of updates, let me know because I enjoy writing them when I get the chance to do them!

    See you round!

    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.

    NS2 and more specifically the Australian community for NS2 have undergone many changes in their long lives, and it is time for more change in preparation for the upcoming year of NS2 within our community. While anyone can admit that NS2 may not be the game it once was, no one can argue that there is still much competition to be held and more room for improvement and consistency for events and community standards for AusNS2 community members and participants.

    Currently the AusNS2 admin team consists of myself, Taz and Zimoi and we have agreed that as a team we are no longer able to fully dedicate enough time to the game and the community due to real life commitments. We have decided that the best move from this point is to bolster our admin team to help carry out the next year of AusNS2 competitive events.

    Without further ado:
    The AusNS2 team are looking for 1 or 2 moderators to join the AusNS2 Admin Team.

    The selection process won't be incredibly formal just because we know pretty much everyone in the community and its silly to have a 'resume' or something similar for a gaming community.
    However, we just want to know how many people are interested in a role like this.

    Most of you are familiar with how things operate around here, but if anyone needs further clarification, some things you will be doing are:
    Helping run tournaments/seasons
    Content management (front page posts etc)
    Forum moderation

    If you have any other skills like video editing or graphic design that always helps as well!

    The role is volunteer.

    Any contribution is appreciated, while we would appreciate someone who is here to help for a while and become a member of the team, no hard feelings if this isn't for you.

    If you have any questions or are interested in becoming a moderator, either post here in the thread OR contact me privately on steam HERE.

    Thanks for taking the time to read this and stay tuned for more updates.
