Today, Augmented Authority took a massive step towards Overwatch Contenders status by placing 4th in the European Playoffs for Season 2 of Open Division. 1,869 teams entered the Division and with 9 wins out of 10 games, we placed 8th in the Division and progressed to the end of season playoffs! Season 2 Open Division Standings After several intense games over a number of weeks, we forced our way through the lower bracket to end up finishing 4th overall and qualifying as a trialist for next Season's Overwatch Contenders. Playoff Brackets Playoff Standings We now have to place in the Top 4 out of 8 Contenders Trialists in order to reach the Contenders League for Season 3. Competition is going to be tough but we believe the lads can do it, you can follow the results at the link below. The Contenders Trialists Congratulations to the guys and the support staff without which, this would not have been possible. Now go ahead and secure your prize. Update: Unfortunately, the team decided to part ways with us so if they won a Contenders spot, they could be picked up by a more financially powerful organisation. The guys duly delivered in the trials and came top of the group, winning £2066 in the process. Congratulations to them, their success is a credit to Augmented Authority.
Our Rocket League line up clutched a well fought victory at the weekend (13/05/18). With a Lack of league games URELA hosted a one of 8 man tournament through the in game tournament feature. Sadly the feature is buggy so screen shots and results tables were not stored 🙁 Nevertheless that lads still played some high level competitive games against GC (Grand Champion) teams and deserve their praise on their performance. We briefly spoke to Mendo about the tournament and how it went:
"Well the team we faced in the final was a full GC team so we really had to pull a performance out the bag. We lost the first game too so it was looking grim but we fought back really hard and took the next 2 games to get the win"

The FMWEC took place at i62 on Sunday. The NEC was a perfect venue for the intense and nerve wracking games. With £25,000 and a chance to manage Norwich City vs Inter Milan on the line, great players from all over the world were in attendance. Famous YouTubers, streamers, players from Brazil, France, and the USA were all vying for the trophy. Our very own Purge, with just 50 hours experience in the game, beat a lot of the dedicated 64 players to secure 2nd place in the Plate, with the match filmed and streamed online. He narrowly lost the Plate final (for £1000) 2-0, his reward, £500 and a chance to compete in the next competition to be announced shortly. This post will be updated with brackets, interviews, and match replays once they become available. The most memorable matches were his first group game he won 3-1 against the eventual runner-up of the entire competition, and a 4-3 thriller during the elimination stage. Congratulations to Purge and here's hoping this is the start of a profitable new career.

On 18th August 2017, our DOTA2 team secured victory at the finals of the Manchester Showdown in our first LAN as an organisation! We qualified through the first of the online brackets. Having qualified online, the final 4 teams were invited to compete in the Trafford Centre. We faced Perilous.RAZE in our first semi-final and after a difficult back and forth at the start of the first game, came out 2-0 winners - Match 1, Match 2 In the final, we faced GOAT. Our players were off to a nervous start, going 14-1 down in the first game before bringing it back with some great split pushing. The second match was much more straightforward and after 27 minutes we were crowned the champions - Series Stats
CrysenAs a result of their efforts, the players took home £200 in prizemoney. We hope this bodes well for the future of the organisation and can use this as a platform to push to the next level. Some images from the day...
