Entering the ClanBase Nations Cup XV late in the singups, iM-Sadact enlisted an all star team of the biggest names in Australian Battlefield 3 to take on the European powerhouses including such nations as Russia, Sweden, Denmark and Finland.
Looked upon as massive underdogs (DICE community manager zh1nt0 even saying aus would finish second last in the group stage!), Australia has just defeated Finland in the Grand Final of the BF3 nations cup 286-92.
Round 1 of Bazaar, AUS win 151-0
Round 2 of Bazaar, AUS win 92-0
Round 1 of Kharg Island FIN win 92-0
Round 2 of Kharg Island AUS win 43-0
Its a shame no spectator/battlerecorder exists as it was an epic battle with Australia going in as the powerhouse infantry side and Finland going in massive favourites on the vehicle map (worlds best jet pilot, beating australia in group rounds on caspian 259-0). It was always going to be a matter of who dominated the hardest on their map.
An interesting narrative developed out of Australia having no jet pilots at a European level, developing a massive zerg strat on vehicle maps of jet rams, mass bails and various unorthodox tactics. It paid off in the end, and with the aid of RPG/SMAW shots taking down the chopper and jets a few times, Australia even won the final round on Kharg!
A few Australian players recorded the PoV and will be uploading it to youtube ASAP.
