So it has been a while since we had a blog post and everything has been hectic around the holidays. I hope you all had an awesome Christmas and a very happy New Year! We did so well last year. We raised over $1,000 for charity, we broke 1,000 members, we started up and currently have over 5 divisions running. 2013 was a great year for Unreal Aussies, but lets aim to make 2014 a fantastic year.
A lot of our divisions are going revamps and there has been a lot of officer shuffling. This is ultimately for the best as an officer should only hold the position if they are actively participating in their role.
Minecraft Server Closure
After a good run, the uA Minecraft server is now officially shutdown. We are sorry if this has caused you any inconvenience. We have backed up the map files and they are available on request (please send a PM to Agamemnus). If you happened to donate during the period of the Minecraft server being live, you will retain your tags.
Since it is a new year, there are many new and exciting games that will come out. Some of the most anticipated amongst uA members are The Elder Scrolls Online, Wildstar and Hearthstone. Be on the lookout for these new divisions and announcements about them, and also don't forget to put an Officer application in if you are interested.
Friday Night Coop has now moved to Sunday and has a new name! iBrez is heading up this division and will (hopefully) be announcing a new game every week for uA members to play. He is particularly excited for a open source remake of Red Alert and a few other Command & Conquer games. check it out:
uA Gaming proudly supporting beyondblue
As mentioned above, we raised over $1,000 for beyondblue through our 8 hour gaming stream marathon. I'd like to once again thank everyone that participated, it was a great day and we will definitely look at doing something like it again! I was sent a certificate from the Fundraising Manager of beyondblue, see below!
