With the launch of 'All Blacks Rugby Challenge 2' coming up on June 13th, NZ Gamer has decided to embrace the national game. It's time for the NZ Gamer community to pull on their favourite jersey and represent their beloved Country, Franchise, Club or Province in our first NZ Gamer Rugby Competition!

 

With over 110 teams within 'All Blacks Rugby Challenge 2' our own challenge is coming up with the best way to play the competition. The international path would be fun, however I think we all know what team 99 percent of us would be choosing :P . We also have Super Rugby which has a good mix of teams. The ITM Cup could present some interesting match ups. There is also the option of heading abroad for a Top14 competition. Another fun path would be to mix them up, Super Rugby vs ITM Cup amongst other mix and match options.

 

So are you interested in competing in our own NZ Gamer Rugby Challenge? If so, how would you like us to run the competition, a structured format where teams are from one league or an epic free for all, where Gamers choose which team suits them on the day? Either way it should be great fun, and a good opportunity to get some great matches in, meet fellow NZ Gamers on the field and win some awesome prizes!

 

If you are interested, post your Xbox Live Gamertag below. Also, post any ideas you may have that could help make this league a success, or the format you would prefer to play in. Any questions just post. See you all on release day June 13th!!

This is gonna be awesome! I'm thinking ITM cup could be great - just coz of the variety of teams - but I'm good with whatever we choose.

We're running a league on the PS3 too - you should go and register your interest for that one perhaps?

Anybody else picked the game up yet? Slightly different from the first game. I like the addition of being able to Jackal for the ball.

Just played 2 games online, worst experience ever. Could not get ons line out ball straight, myself and my opponent. Scrum gauge dont function correctly, i press push and it only catches on after a few seconds. Losing a ball after you been tackled is inevitable. Just give up and give the other team the ball. The punting button is whey to sensitive, pushing to keep the ball and then suddenly you... Ohh no you don't... U just kicked it away. Why can't look bak at ea rugby 2006 and make the gameplay fun, there are so many glicthes I am wondering why they evem bothered bringing a second one out and not playing it before hand.
The commentary, really the guys pushing in the scrum sound like they all bundled up in a cubical taking a piss and a pushing to get a crap out. Sounds are terrible, come on guys you know u can do better

Have to agree with all of this, hence why I hired then decided not to buy..

 

The sound is awful! Like you say, everyone just sounds constipated!

Kiwi and I payed a couple of games this arvo - It looks like they've improved things, coz the lag was ok - We both enjoyed the games which we won one apiece.

 

If you've got this game, we're keen to host a league, or similar, so let us know folks.
