Greetings all, now, as you can see the front page has not been updated in a while, that doesnít mean we're inactive, quite the opposite really, *AUS* has been one of the most active clans in the Australian Battlefield Community participating in a number of different game modes across a variety of ladders.
With the release of Battlefield 4 in October/November last year (2013), a new wave of hope and excitement filled the vains that only a battlefield game can bring... sadly as we all know the launch was less then successful with the game being plagued with bugs, glitches and network faults.
Sticking to *AUS* tradition we soldiered on and with the 10v10 and 5v5 completions starting we were hoping for an aggressive start to our BF4 campaign (sadly 16v16 was DOA).
We started the Cybergamer 10v10 campaign against Virtus Gaming, Sila, Roll the Dice and Infinity Gaming, not the greatest teams to be facing at the start of the season. After suffering huge losses against those teams we finally reordered our first win against Team Dedicated Soldiers. Partying went long into the night but was cut short due to the Mwave 10v10 Cash Comp starting. The draw was not too kind, *AUS* was placed in a very tough Group consisting of Emph Gaming, Immunity, Roll the Dice and Virtus...GG.
Our first match was against Roll the Dice for which we put a great effort into but in the end lost 0-111, our second match was a must win against Virtus Gaming, a Team that defeated us 481 to zip (0-481) the last time we faced them, but always the underdog *AUS* showed great fight and teamwork to upset Virtus 170-0, our next two games were hard fought but in the end we lost both games to Emph gaming and Immunity, it was a great tournament that showed we can fight and compete with the best of them.
After Mwave, our officers that had guided this clan through BC2 and BF3 decided to step down, Gusrulez with his 100+ games for *AUS* during this period decided it was the right time to hand over the reins of the clan to a new Core group mixed with old and new heads. We would like to thankyou Gus for your time, commitment and leadership you show *AUS* for 2 full campaigns. Another officer VEEKS who also put in 50+ games during those campaigns decided it was time to step down and with a young family to look after we all understood why, we all thank you VEEKS and miss you andyour late-night shenanigans. Hopefully in the future you will be back more refreshed and ready to fight with us in Battlefield Hardline and beyond. Dward was kicked for been incompetent....and having shaved legs.
With the void of these *AUS* legends been filled by, KoMRaD, Darknight and Gossy, *AUS* step up their campaign in the Cybergamer 10v10 ladder to finish 4th overall, after some great wins and some sad losses we were eventually beaten in the losers bracket 2nd Round by Sons Of Valour, a team that would go on to face Deathnet in the final, we congratulate both teams on a fiercely fought finals campaign and look forward to season 2.
Our Cybergamer 5v5 campaign was used to blood the new members to *AUS*. The team showed some very significant signs of improvement. A lot of our new recruits got a taste of competitive BF4, sadly we came nowhere near to the finals bracket but did end the season positively, hopefully in the new season we will fight harder and show what our 5ís can do!
Our 8v8 hardcore team started in the best fashion possible with a victory over Violent Nature a team lead excellently by Stabakris and winners the season before.Having won our first round 3-0 we faced xDs and after some closely fought matches lost 2-1, we would eventually finish a very respectable 2nd on our first season in the 8v8s only losing to xDs and eventual winners TgL.
It has been a very long and exciting period for everyone in *AUS*, and we can only look forward to the future months and years that the battlefield series can and will offer us.
We would like to thank everyone involved in *AUS* and look forward to seeing you all on the Battlefield!
MrAussieDevil, KoMRaD and Darknight
