Dark Sided

Operation: Dark Sided

As we head comfortably into the new year, it comes as a great pleasure to announce our first roster venture with Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege. With esports steadily growing in Australia, Siege has quickly risen to prominence as a contending title and ViewSonic.Dark Sided look forward to being involved in its continual success.

Rainbow 6 Announcement

We are extremely excited to play under the ViewSonic Dark Sided name for the upcoming season of the Rainbow Six Siege Pro League and hopefully bring them great results within the APAC region and in the international scene.

Fletcher 'Fletch' Hickling - Dark Sided Rainbow 6 Siege Captain


The Rainbow Six esports community has been a determined force that’s seen some explosive, but healthy growth. I couldn’t possibly ignore the production, the story lines, and the driving force from Ubisoft. This team has been amazing to work with already, within the short capacity it’s been thus far - I’m super excited for the future with this team, but also to work with the ever growing scene!

The Official ViewSonic.Dark Sided Rainbow Six Siege is as follows:

ViewSonic Title Sponsorship

Over the past 6 months ViewSonic have been supporting Dark Sided players to help them achieve success in Australian Esports. As of today, we're taking that partnership to the next level.

It is with great pleasure that we announce a new title sponsorship with ViewSonic!

Dark Sided is one of the most recognized gaming organisations in Australia, and we are excited to expand on our partnership. As a global display brand with roots in the Australian gaming community, ViewSonic’s title sponsorship of Dark Sided solidifies our commitment to the local gaming scene and demonstrates our aspiration to be a leader in the gaming monitor market

Josh Edwards - Sales and Marketing Manager of ViewSonic Australia

At the end of August, Dark Sided’s Street Fighter V roster will journey to Hong Kong for their Capcom Pro Tour Premier event, where they’ll face off with some of the best international players in the world for coveted Pro Tour points.

Next month in September, the entire FGC team (inclusive of Spud and Waz) will be attending Australian FGC Major, Ozhadou Nationals (OHN15) in Sydney, where they’ll be looking to reciprocate their May success at Battle Arena Melbourne (BAM9) in Melbourne. Both these huge Australian FGC events were proudly sponsored by ViewSonic ANZ.

Working with ViewSonic has been an absolute dream thus far. I can’t truly explain the joy I feel presenting this announcement to the public, I can confidently say that it’s a culmination of efforts from Josh, our players, and the endless effort from our management team.

ViewSonic sponsored OHN14 last year, which was our first FGC event. When I saw how passionate the Aus FGC was towards ViewSonic and Dark Sided, for both supporting the FGC in respective ways, I knew I wanted to work with the brand. Dark Sided is definitely going to cause some damage in this year to come, and we couldn’t ask for a more supportive company to be along side us. I know for a fact that everyone under Dark Sided is looking forward to continuing a bright future with ViewSonic, and that working with a leader in gaming monitors will provide the support network we need to thrive ever more
