July is here and the last week has been full of Aussie successes! Australians won all three divisions at the Pokémon VGC North American International Championships, because as a nation we have a decent amount of success at controlling unique beasts nobody else has seen before. Three OPL teams are currently battling in the Rift Rivals over the next few days, Kanga Esports caused controversy when they were seeded above North America at the Paladins Summer Premier. Aussie team Blank Esports placed second in the Overwatch Pacific Championships, earning nearly $50,000USD in prize money. At home, Tainted Minds beat Dark Sided in the CSGO AEM Finals and Dark Sided’s newly acquired HOTS team lost a close match against Nomia.
