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.

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.

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!
