Who We Are
Here at DUS we are a casual, fun, loving Xbox gaming community made up of Australia and New Zealand based members. We pride ourselves on providing a mature (18+ year olds), structured environment that caters for ALL your gaming needs.
Be sure to keep up with everything to do with DUS by reading our Weekly Updates here.
If you’d like to join our ranks as either a member or an affiliate, simply click the "JOIN DUS!" tab at the top of the page and fill out an application form. Please note that new members are restricted by the following pre-requisites:
Once your application has been accepted you will attain the beginner’s rank of Inductee. As an Inductee you will be placed on a 14 day probation period, during which you must do the following:
Failure to do any of the above during your probation means you didn’t make the cut. Those that successfully pass their induction will be granted the rank of Recruit. Affiliates are not bound by any of the above – although it would make sense to at least link your Gamer Tag as per above instructions.

DUS Gamertag Prefix Requirement:
Once a member has received the rank of Recruit, they will have 1 month to amend their gamer tag to include the DUS Prefix. Your gamer tag will need to start with DUS (in capitals) followed by a space and then continue with the rest of your tag (eg. DUS CYBER or DUS Riggs). One month should give a new recruit enough time to determine whether DUS is definitely for them for the long term.
DUS in turn, ONLY wants members that have every intention of staying for years and that appreciate what DUS has to offer them in return, hence wearing our DUS Badge is the ultimate sign of respect and pride. We’re not a serious group in terms of competitiveness, but we are serious about who and what we are – we are what we wear.
The other benefits from having a united form of gamer tag include:
DUS isn’t only about gaming on XBL, it’s also about sharing in the DUS Community as a whole, and to allow us to all do this – we created our own website (Headquarters). It’s taken a lot of effort to get our HQ to where it is, so do us the courtesy of visiting HQ as frequently as possible.
Headquarters Activity Should Include:
Xbox LIVE Activity Should Include:
Real life is always going to stop us from gaming at some stage, but this doesn’t mean that you have to retire from DUS, or even worse, just drop and run.
Simply hit the "Absence of Leave” forum and post a thread telling everyone what’s going on and roughly how long you think you’ll be. We’re happy to be flexible, after all we’re all about keeping our members for the long haul, and being an ‘older’ group of gamers, we can sympathise and understand what real life can be all about.
