Battle for the Throne of "Champion Clan" is a Game

The Battle for the Throne of "Champion Clan" is a Game - a History of the Australian National Clan Wars

The stage is awash with kills and casualties and the crowd trembles with thunderous applause. This is a game of thrones with a difference - it is a Battlefield LIVE game.

This is an epic tale of rebellion and revenge played over the last 8 years from Toowoomba to Perth and from Brisbane back to Geelong.

Game on Australia.

Once every year Australia's top Battlefield LIVE (Laser Skirmish) clans and elite gamers converge on one battlefield to vie for glory for National Champion Clan.

Each clan has 5 gamers allowed on the battlefield at one time.

Clan members can be male or female.

 

Australian National Clan War History

Battlefield Sports is a laser tag equipment manufacturer but it has also run its own local business running events for gamers. The team has run indoor laser tag, outdoor laser skirmish, and hard-core Battlefield LIVE events. Templars and Amazonz (an all girl clan) were a couple of clans from the early days.

The very first clan war was in 2000 in Cairns.australian national clan war perpetual trophy

When we moved our headquarters from Cairns to Brisbane Christmas 2001, we started our Gold Coast battlefield in January 2002, we continued the Clan War tradition. The clan war momentum grew and grew, the game was afoot! Gamers from surrounding towns such as Toowoomba were interested in our Clan Wars.
