Team Australia is the national StarCraft II team of Australia. See also the Australian SC2 scene.
While SC:BW in mid-2010 was essentially dead in Australia, it was for a somewhat positive reason - the release of StarCraft 2. The activity seen in the leadup to the game's release, from events such as the State of Origin and Trans-Tasman Tournaments acted as a catalyst for SC2 in Australia. The game hit the ground running in the competitive scene, with several tournaments featuring $200+ prizepools running during beta for Australian players only, before the game was even officially released. These tournaments continued to grow with some multiple-thousand dollar events taking the spotlight and unveiling some truly world-class Australian talent with players such as Filthy, deth, mOOnGLaDe, Pinder and Azz. This set the scene for a Team Australia revival.
The Australian team was revived in StarCraft 2 for two showmatches hosted on teamliquid by deL, resulting in a surprise loss to New Zealand and a win over tough opponents Singapore. SC2SEA then ran a Nation War event and Australia took revenge over New Zealand in the last round robin stage to claim #1 spot after being undefeated all season. This stands as the team's greatest achievement in SC2 to date.
