NSD's Sons of Chaos team is currently sitting pretty at the top of the log in the Telkom Do Gaming League (DGL) Battlefield 3 Breakthrough Playoffs, brought to you by EA. The team has enjoyed three wins of all their games played, with only two more matches left to play.
This coming Sunday is a big match for these boys as they go up against |BFC|Crankers, a match that Vice-Captain and infantry player Bernard 'SLA_Q-ZA' Wagner says is going to be their most challenging in these Playoffs.
[TE]Notorious was also a match that Bernard said they were expecting to be a challenge when we spoke to him last Friday. They went head to head with TE on Sunday and managed to pull off a 2 – 0 win.
But despite their upcoming match against BFC, Bernard is confident.
“I believe we will come out on top and as a result secure our position in the First Division for the Winter Leg,” he says.
But what will they bring to the First Division?
“We are a highly competitive team. We are determined to put in the effort to prove ourselves. I think our dedication and the platform that NSD as an entity gives its teams will set us apart from various other teams,” he says.

Since Battlefield 3 entered the scene as a competitive title, NSD has shown a clear passion for the game, looking to assemble top teams to be a major contender in the scene. It took some time to get the teams organised, however, and the Sons of Chaos team had to reform twice.
“The current team formed in December 2012 with Cobus 'Uncl3_Fest3r' Faasen as the newly appointed captain,” says Bernard, giving some history. When the Summer Leg began, Bernard took over from fellow infantry player, Wilhelm (OS) 'B00GieM4n' Van Zyl as co-leader of the team.
They came in on the Second Division at the dawn of the new season and ended the Summer Leg as the runners-up in Group B, ousted from a top placing by DvGǂMisFiTs who took the top of the log.
“DvG was our strongest competition and gave us a taste of the level of gameplay we can expect from top-tier teams. We have since then upped our practice regiment and, from recent results, this seems to be paying off,” says Bernard. “We definitely accomplished our goal for the Summer Leg by reaching the Breakthrough Playoffs.”
