Website 2.0 – The new era

2019-12-10T14:55:02+08:00

When I joined the committee at the start of 2019, I advocated for an update to our website, an e-shop to sell merch and tickets along with it to track our premium memberships. As in the past, we manually sent out invoices to individuals for LAN and premium, yes sending out an individual invoice to 50 people! This semester I was given the reigns to design, implement and roll out our very own membership program and eshop on my own and it is with great pride I can now say I have completed this goal. LAN tickets when made available [...]

Gaming Hub Announced

2019-12-10T14:59:40+08:00

Today we are proud to move forward into the next stage of the Club's life. For the past year, Kyle Haddleton (President) and Morgan Humphreys (Vice President) have worked hard to secure both the space and funding for a gaming hub on campus alongside Murdoch Sports. We are currently moving into the second phase due to a sizeable grant that got approved by the SSAF committee. The facility will give us a chance to allow our teams a dedicated space to train and organise more cross-university exhibition matches, plus more. The room is estimated to be open to students in [...]

Diving into Modern UR Gifts Storm

2019-12-10T15:00:32+08:00

Alright – Modern. I don’t have a damn clue what I’m doing in modern. I have just picked up the format and the deck I’m playing (my sideboard is missing like 7 cards!). However, I decided to put myself down for a modern tournament at my LGS today and it went… ok? I have tested a little bit with people – a bit of a low-powered version of 8-rack, G-Tron and a UR Wizards build. I had no expectations of myself and no knowledge of what the meta game at the store was going to be [...]
