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.

Dark Sided OCS welcomes Coach Kai & Manager Callum

After what has been a hectic month for ViewSonic.Dark Sided after the announcement of acquiring a Oceanic Challenger Series spot, we are pleased to announce that we are signing League of Legends staffing duo, Callum and Kai for 2018.


Callum has been around the Oceanic League of Legends scene for a long time now, helping in not only the OCS, but also the OPL as an analyst and last years Open Ladder as a coach. Callum will be filling the role of ViewSonic.Dark Sided's Manager and Analyst, which is an extremely vital role when it comes to the success of the team.

When I first heard Dark Sided were moving into League of Legends, I was very glad that that they would be finally venturing into the OCS. With Dark Sided being already established as an organisation, I only hope this would assist in the development of the OCS as a product for the future. As for my own ambitions, this will be my first management position. I had spent the most part of the last three and half years in a coaching capacity. That being said, regardless of my position, my ambition is always to assist in the team to win the competition.

Callum Matthews - Dark Sided Manager/Analyst


Kai is coming into this split to work alongside Callum as the team's Head Coach; handling all aspects of in game performance with the team. Kai coached last seasons Oceanic Challenger Series champions and we are incredibly excited to have him on board to share his expertise.

I’m extremely excited for the this split, as Dark Sided have been lovely to work with and share the same goals as myself. They are willing to work just as hard for it as well, which makes things even better! My goal for this split is to bring forth yet another first place finishing team as last split and pull them through the relegation stage. We have some extremely impactful players coming in, so be sure to keep your eyes peeled!

Dark Sided enters Hearthstone

Today we're throwing it back, all the way back to ViewSonic.Dark Sided's humble beginnings in 2016 when we had a Hearthstone roster and a dream. A long time has passed since then and our Hearthstone roster has remained dormant... until this day...

Please welcome Kelson 'MrLego' Barber and Cameron 'Hughesy' Hughes to our new look Hearthstone roster!


Hearthstone has always been a game close to my heart. It was the very first game ViewSonic Dark Sided entered when we established ourselves as an esports organisation. Since then we've been looking for the right way to re-enter the hearthstone scene and we think we've found it with these boys.

Really looking forward to watching MrLego & Hughesy in all their future events and I wish them nothing but excellent top decks.

Waz re-signs with Dark Sided for 2018

Good news everyone! Everyone's favourite Simpsons loving, Injustice 2 playing, Catwoman maining, Australian FGC celebrity Waz has re-signed with ViewSonic.Dark Sided for 2018!


Waz has an absolutely huge year ahead of him coming off the back of an equally huge year last year as he prepares to take on some of the best Injustice 2 players in the world at Combo Breaker and EVO 2018.

We're very glad to have Waz re-sign with Dark Sided for 2018. He had such an incredible year last year with some really great moments which saw him become the strongest NRS fighter in Australia. Very keen to see him fulfil his dreams of taking on the world and hopefully defending his Battle Arena Melbourne title too!

After what has been massive start to the year for ViewSonic.Dark Sided you might think, what is next? Well, don't we have a treat for you. Today we're officially adding League of Legends to our ranks by entering the Oceanic Challenger Series!


With Riot Games announcing structural changes, there is no better time to enter the league. It has always been a dream for ViewSonic.Dark Sided to move into a position where it can field players on Summoners Rift and share a love for esports with the League of Legends community. Finally that dream is coming true.

I'm so glad that we can announce our entrance into League of Legends, today. This has been a work-in-progress for over 12 months, and now we're finally here. This is a #DSWIN. The future looks astonishing with Riot Games' support - and I can't wait to immerse myself within the culture they've created here in Oceania.
