Remember when South Africa got thrashed by Romania? There was quite a bit about uproar about the organization of the event, last minute notification of players and other problems. Well, the MSSA has a chance to redeem themselves when South Africa goes up against Mexico.

The tournament will take place on Sunday, 8 September at 7pm. Taking place at MWEB’s MCAVE in Cape Town, South Africa will be represented by:

  • Anthony ‘Scant’ Hodgson (Knights Mind Sports)
  • Mohamed ‘seeM’ Wasim Lorgat (Energy eSports)
  • Dylan ‘Shanks’ Probyn (Knights Mind Sports)
  • Justin ‘LETSGETPARTY’ Probyn (Knights Mind Sports)
  • Wesley ‘oDu’ Rose (Knights Mind Sports)

At least, I’m assuming that these are the representatives – the press release actually refers to them as the team for 31 July 2013. But don’t worry – the press release tells us all about how strong the Mexican team is with quotes like:

Coupled with the Mexican team’s passion is a ruthless dedication to the game, It is this passion and dedication that has made the Mexican team one of the most respected Central American teams.

The captain of the Mexican team (Fergus)  is oft heard to exclaim that he is first and foremost a gamer and life is just a hobby!

Not sure why we get furnished with this information, but no details on live streaming of the match. It would be great to go and support the team in Cape Town, but for those who are unable to, it would also be great if these press releases told us how we can watch and support the guys! So far, I’ve been informed that Kyle ‘Congo’ Wolmarans and Kyle Singh will be shoutcasting – I will let you know if I get a link or channel for you all.

Let’s hope that the South African team is more successful this time around – it would be nice to see the guys beat the Mexicans at Dota 2, even if they are so passionate and dedicated (as compared to all those apathetic, detached national teams).

Would you like to watch this match?

Wielding my lasso of truth, I am the combination of nerd passion and grammar nazi. I delve into all things awesome and geek-tastic. I believe people should stop defining themselves and just enjoy playing games, so let's get on with it!

    Really hoping for a twitch stream or good dota tv coverage.
    We need a way to support our team. Right now there’s no way to do that.

    • Devourer of Small Bunnies

      In game client does fairly alright man. Considering its released, no one should have any excuses really.

      • Gerhard Davids

        Yeah DotaTV is the ideal to use doesn’t cover it when I’m not at my gaming PC and I want to watch regardless. That’s a very valid excuse…

        • Devourer of Small Bunnies

          Good point man

    • Matthew Holliday

      noxville sorts the streaming for local games here:
      http://www.twitch.tv/polarfluke

  • Alien Emperor Trevor

    The Mcave? That makes me giggle.

  • Alien Emperor Trevor

    Good luck to those competing. Taco no prisoners!

    • Devourer of Small Bunnies

      hahahahahahahaha. Such a bastardo

  • InsanityFlea

    Why do South African’s suck so badly at DOTA? (which apparently, is a game not a curse)

    • Bob

      Stoners, thats why :P

    • Matthew Holliday

      We’re not really that bad, considering a proper competative scene has only really been going for the past 2 or3 years here.
      Our games against the Romanians was not a good matchup as all the members on their team were parts of 2nd – 1st tier teams, who have been playing competative dota since 2005ish.
      The mexicans will be a much more even matchup

      • Her Highness the Hipster

        haha, so much for even matchup! SA owned mexico!

        • Matthew Holliday

          yeah that was pretty embarrassing, didnt even watch game 2.
          when the cs difference between the 2 mid heroes is 100cs at 15 minutes, well…
          and then that sb charging into 4 of them, its like watching a low prio pub game…
