Dark Sided Welcomes Baxter

Today, we’d like to officially welcome Sam Baxter to the FGC ring as our latest addition to the Dragon Ball FighterZ roster. Accompanying Falco for the remainder of this year and beyond, Baxter has shown his true class within the region by recently taking out this years’ BAM 10 in 1v1s and claiming the title of DBZ Champion.


We caught up with Baxter to see his thoughts on this exciting new journey:

I am absolutely thrilled to be part of the team. I can't wait to take my skills and the opportunity provided by Dark Sided; competing in the DBFZ World Tour! The HAM is ready! Are you?

Welcome to the shadows Baxter.


Dark Sided Overwatch Update

Back in May, ViewSonic.Dark Sided Overwatch competed in the inaugural season of Overwatch Contenders, securing themselves a spot at the LAN finals with an 18-2 record where they faced some of the best teams this region had to offer. Heading into the playoffs, the team were confident in their ability in taking the title. Unfortunately they were defeated in an incredibly tight set against the eventual champions the Sydney Drop Bears.


Coming into Season 2 of the Overwatch Contenders League, a few changes were made to the starting line up. The team decided that replacing USMC and Swilko whom had joined the roster for season one, with Yuki and Cantus respectively would give them the best opportunity to take our the competition.


ViewSonic.Dark Sided would like to thank USMC and Swilko for all their hard work during the first season of Overwatch Contenders and wish them the best of luck moving forward.

ViewSonic.Dark Sided would like to officially announce our Overwatch Contenders Season 2 lineup. The roster is as follows:

We got a few words from our General Manager, Matt Cail to see his thoughts on the recent change.

It’s suffice to say that I have strong hopes for the guys and the roster overall. I think it’s a collection of some of the greatest talent within this country and with the introduction of the Melbourne Esports Open at Rod Laver, acting as the playoffs to this next season, the guys are super eager to show Australia what they have to offer. Right now it’s a case of nailing down each step of the way till it’s end, and I’m excited to see how they make their start to the season.

Kicking off tomorrow at 12:00pm AEST, ViewSonic.Dark Sided will be squaring up against Masterminds for their first match of the season. Be sure to show your support through our socials and tune in on Overwatch Contenders Twitch.

Dark Sided Departs From 3 Divisions

Today, we are disheartened to inform the public that ViewSonic.Dark Sided will be stepping away from Counter Strike, Rocket League, and Hearthstone for the immediate future.


First and foremost, these players. James, Noisia, Andy, Void, Sk, Hughesy, MrLego, Shadey, Express, Dumbo, and Enigma are some of the greatest blokes we’ve had throughout our time and by no means is there any animosity between ourselves and any of these players. We would also like to mention that we highly advocate these teams for any organisation looking to involve themselves and make a forceful presence.

To address this topic both wholistically and justly, our Founder and CEO Matthew Westphal has said a few words in response to these changes.

We’d also like to show gratitude to both the players and their respective communities for their continual support throughout our journey in these titles. Circumstances have shown that Dark Sided cannot currently be involved and we must appropriately take this moment to take a step back. We are thankful of your support and best wishes to all moving forward.

Today we're finally announcing the rostered players for ViewSonic.Dark Sided

Command's favourite Champion


Raven's favourite Champion

The League of Legends team will be competing in the Oceanic Challenger Series over the course of fourteen weeks starting this month. The Oceanic Challenger Series is a league for all up and coming players that are looking to make that push into the Oceanic Pro League.

All the action kicks off on the 10th of May, so be sure to get behind our team and see them compete for the first time under ViewSonic.Dark Sided.


Entering the Oceanic Challenger Series and the League of Legends ecosystem is a massive step for ViewSonic Dark Sided but I'm confident that with the help of Callum, Kai and the boys that we can show the local community the best of what Dark Sided has to offer and hopefully in turn become a part of that community.
