Instead of spamming the news posts or forums with links every week, we have put together a list of all the media-related content the Australian's have done so far which you can find below. 4sg have also put together a Points Betting as well as a Shop to help support our players and teams. These pages are really rough around the edges, but are working. The betting page also lists all the players social media and stream links. I'll be heading over myself and taking videos/photos of everyone and our journey if interested follow 4sg and team/player social media links below. If you would like to get it as our community does, jump in discord, and keep an eye on the #quakecon-info channel.
It is with great pleasure we announce today that we will be sending four Australian players to compete at this years Quake Champions BYOC event held at Quakecon, TX. As many of you know the announcement of the Quake World Championships came with both excitement and disappointment for our Australian and New Zealand players alike. Since then we have been working hard behind the scenes with two of Australia's premiere eSports organisations JAM Gaming and Corvidae Inc to make this all possible.
Here are the four players representing OCE:
Andrew 'Python' Cha Cha (JAM Gaming) twitter
Daniel 'Astroboy' De Sousa (JAM Gaming) twitter
Frazer 'Fraze' Hockley (Corvidae) twitter
Tyler 'Steej' Joseph (Corvidae) twitter
David 'ZenAku' Addati (Corvidae) twitter
For those of you who haven't followed the Oceanic scene during Quake Live please check out the soon to be released player interviews and background stories to find out more about them as well as more about the Australian and New Zealand Quake community. Also give the players and teams a follow on social media to keep up with their trip and practice.
Cypher takes out the first 125fps duel tournament beating Fazz in straights 2-0 (Bo3). Cypher was running BJ to open the game out but had most success on Galena. Entertaining games with some good casting from Zoot worth a watch

I know most people here are from QL and already familiar with the stuff in the videos but the content is not for us. It's directed towards new players. Please if you have friends or hear of people struggling in the game direct them towards these videos.
