XCOM 2 Giveaway with G2A.COM and CyberGamer Overview
Twenty years have passed since world leaders offered an unconditional surrender to alien forces and XCOM, the planet's last line of defense, was left decimated and scattered. Now the aliens rule Earth, building shining cities that promise a brilliant future for humanity on the surface, while concealing a sinister agenda below and eliminating all who dissent from their new order.Only those who live at the edges of the world have a margin of freedom. Here, a force gathers once again to stand up for humanity. Always on the run, the remnant XCOM forces must find a way to rise from the ashes, expose the insidious truth behind the occupation, and eliminate the alien threat once and for all.

in PC by miss - Jan 26th 2016
CGAC - Version 2.1.0 Released! As the title says, new version of our own anti-cheat has been released. Unfortunately everyone who has already been using it will need to install the program again. Reason for this are numerous backend changes and a new license agreement.

Been working on new update for last two months and not gonna bore you with technical details and things you don't need to know, so here are just the most interesting changes for public:


- Added Settings. From there you can reset config, change hotkeys, default server (before login) and behavior of the program after game closes.
- Ton of code optimizations. Fixed several important memory leaks as well.
- Site news will now load after the client interface has been initialized, startup time should be significantly reduced by this change.
- You can now open site news by double clicking them.
- Added support for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.
- Client now supports Steam. Origin can be added in future as well.

CGPL Interview: Dexter from Chiefs.ESC

in PC by CSGO Content - Jan 26th 2016
CGPL Interview: Dexter from Chiefs.ESC Greetings, fellow CyberGamer users!

Tonight, I bring you the first piece of a new series called "Who's that player?" brought to you by the Content Team. We thought it was a good idea for the community to get to know the players competing at a high level in our scene, especially the newer members who have only picked up CS:GO as their first iteration of the Counter-Strike series. Another reason for these interviews, is to keep the community entertained for the largest season we've seen yet of the upcoming CyberGamer Premier League, which will be featuring over $18,000, split between CS:GO, CoD: Black Ops III and Rocket League. Of course, the Counter-Strike community obtained the higher stick of the straw with more than $10,000 spread out across our newly announced divisions.

First up, we have Chris "Dexter" Nong, also known as the "Dexturret" from our very own Chiefs eSports Club, to discuss on several things including their upcoming trip to IEM Taipei, their thoughts for CGPL and its changes for this season.

G'day mate, how have you been?

Dexter: I've been great man, been really busy lately.

Let's start off with you telling us a quick history of your career as a player and how it eventually led to you playing for one of Oceania's premier eSports organisations, Chiefs.ESC?

Dexter: Basically I started out playing CGa in 2014, where we dropped out in the groups sadly. I decided to start a new adventure with Nova Gaming, which later became SYF Gaming. We came 2nd in the CGPL Season 3 Division 2 Online Finals. Next season was the explosive one for me, as I got to play at ACL Melbourne where we came Top 4. After that, the team attended the largest CS:GO event in Australia, Crown's $55,555 Invitational . Unfortunately, we never got the chance to play the two international teams (Cloud9 and Virtus.Pro) that came over, since we didn't make it to the final stage. However, it was nice meeting them, especially n0thing (Cloud9) and NEO (Virtus.Pro). We came Top 4 in the Division 1 ladder stages in CGPL Season 4 straight after that. During the summer break of 2015, I was asked by Lightstep to join and help revamp the spirits and roster of Chiefs ESC. That's the quick history of me :D

So what did you think made it possible for your team to beat Team Immunity in the Grand Finals of the Invite Qualifier, arguably the No.1 team in our region? And what was going on in Teamspeak at that moment when your team won?

Dexter: We had a lot of experience from playing Team Immunity in the past. Zewsy, Lightstep and CHRiSOAOW knew how Immunity would play and the pace at which they played. We won the first map on de_cbble against them, I think it was partly because of my experience on how Team Immunity played after losing to them in overtime at CGPL when I was in SYF. We remembered how they played and just played to our strengths, because why would anyone change something when its been working for the last 6 months. On the final map, de_inferno, we discussed pre-game and agreed to use our HE grenades effectively. This is because Immunity are an extremely aggressive team, and will try to force us to use our nades early in the round. Following this plan, we were able to shut down two key rounds just using HE nades. Our overall communication and teamwork was on point, which was what we needed to beat Australia's No.1 team. When we won in the end, there was a lot of yelling going on in Teamspeak but I was distracted. That was because I accidentally knocked my knee into the wall and it started bleeding. Anyway, it was a great feeling overall!

Unfortunately, your teammate, CHRiSOAOW, tweeted on Twitter couple of days later that he couldn't attend due to visa issues. With some successful trolling from your team, I was fooled to believe that your coach, jimNeso was going to attend. Apparently, that is not the case. Who is the mysterious fifth person and why was he chosen as the replacement?

Dexter: Hahaha, sorry Flam3z :D . TopguN was chosen as our 5th for Taipei, not entirely because of his raw skill, but the attitude he would bring that would be missing when CHRiSOAOW couldn't play. That's what a team needs, positive attitudes going into the big games. It is what Azad brings to the team, he keeps everyone in the right mind set with his experience and I couldn't be more thankful for that. So the team will consist of me, TopguN, Zewsy, Lightstep and Burnruok. Tucks won't be with us because of his ESL ban, which will end in July this year.

Alongside your fellow countrymen, LA Renegades, your team will be playing against the best teams in Asia at the Minor. What are your expectations for this event and how are you preparing for it?

Dexter: We have looked at some games and analyzed our competition apart from LA Renegades. To be honest, after reviewing the competition, I expect us to come Top 4. Not that I'll be disappointed if we don't, but I truely believe that we are able to rise to the occasion. Four of the team members are bootcamping, and I need to skip because of work/travel issues. This means everyone else is currently in Brisbane bootcamping and I'll be the only one playing online at home. I will be trying to stay on as long as I can be, to follow any new developments.

In a recent article I've read about one of the Chinese teams attending, TyLoo, suddenly withdrew from the Rising Stars tournament that they were still apart of. As a consequence, they were banned indefinitely. Their reason was to save strats and prepare for IEM Taipei. How do you think the team will compare when you face them potentially?

Dexter: I think them saying "saving strats" as a team, is a bad idea. I'm going to assume now that their playstyle will be one "strat" orientated. My team will know how to use our utilities against them more effectively. I reckon when we face the team, it will come down to who is on point on the day individually, with communication playing a big part to it too.

What are your thoughts on the recent changes CyberGamer has made? Adding a new division, following the changes set by ESL and the new rumoured Anti-Cheat are some of the few examples if you've forgotten.

Dexter: I think the changes CyberGamer has made are awesome, with the gameplay, rule changes and a extra division. The lord and savior, defcoN and Brucy, have truely delivered this season with the new format along with adding e-bot to the servers. All the changes are great additions to keep the community alive and strong!

Last season of CGPL, you were seen playing for SYF Gaming in Division 1 qualifying for the LAN Finals at PAX Australia. Alongside Legacy eSports, your team was unable to attend. What happened?

Dexter: Because we were not 100% confirmed to be Top 4, and going to PAX, there was little preparation for the coming weekend that we as a team couldn't handle. Therefore, the team decided it was best to not attend, as it would be against our best interests financially.

Another similar situation occurred later too, but this time it was the organisers skipping you guys for Oceania's first season of the Counter Pit League. Did missing out the LAN Finals of CGPL contribute to this, and what were the (SYF) team's reactions when you all found out?

Dexter: I honestly don't know if missing CGPL Finals contributed to it. Suprisingly, I was not bothered by missing out on Counter Pit League because we would have been forced to rush into the season unprepared. The rest of the team was extremely disappointed and a bit angry if you remember back then.

Lastly, regarding the CyberGamer's Summer Slam II FFYI, who do you predict will be the final 6 teams to join your CGp division this season? And who are the threats to look out for this upcoming season, including the ones that have received an invite?

Dexter: I think for the Summer Slam II, the teams to go through are Alpha Sydney, Corvidae, Citadel, Sequential Gaming, Vital Gaming and Avant. It's difficult to predict because every other team is inconsistent in their results with the exceptions of Alpha Sydney, Vital and Corvidae. The threats I believe will be Legacy eSports, Vox Eminor and Team Immunity. They're the teams that can come out guns blazing and still stay consistent in their results. Alpha Sydney is another team to watch out for, if you're not use to their playstyle. I personally think the differences in playstyle from last year's Division 1 and Division 2 teams coming into CGp will be the main reason the Top 5 teams drop maps. That is because you would expect the top 5 teams to change things, and adapt or evolve, which makes mind games more prevalent. However, the other teams will sometimes refuse to change their set-ups, because of the lack of experience in dealing with the top teams. This is why I believe there are going to be major upsets in this coming season.

Thank you for giving up some of your time for this. Given the immense amount of support you received from the community, is there anything you would like to say to them? Also, any shout outs you would like to make?

Dexter: I would like to say a massive thank you to all the people I've met, and said hello to in the community servers who show their support for me and the team. I couldn't be more thankful for it. I want to also thank the Chiefs Organisation, the managers and our major sponsors (Logitech, Nvidia and Redbull) for all that they've done in making mine and Burnruok's transition into the team so smooth and enjoyable!



Good luck to the Chiefs.ESC this week at IEM Taipei! You can all come support them and catch the action live on stream against their first opponent, MVP.Karnal.
