The Do Gaming League is the biggest thing in local eSports. Other players are coming onto the local scene, but the DGL has the most experience and prestige in the country. Entries for the summer leg are closed, so how many people are hoping to be the next eSport professionals?
It's that time of year again! What time of year, you ask? That time to become a part of local eSports and see if you have what it takes to compete against the best gamers South Africa has to offer. This time, there are far fewer games available, and possibly even larger prizes.
Last year's results were fairly predictable at the DGCs. The major Multi Gaming Organizations (MGOs) won the top awards as expected, with only a couple things going contrary to expectations. This year, we saw one major upset, and a couple clans seem to be making a name for themselves.
Telkom's DGL already has some awesome sponsors. The Dota league winners are getting some awesome goodies, as are players across a variety of games. Now Xbox South Africa is jumping into the Call of Duty sponsorship, and it might just make you kick yourself for not getting involved sooner.
While I'm excited when I hear about new LAN tournaments or events, nothing can compare with the DGL in South Africa. It is the eSports league locally, and worthwhile for anyone who enjoys competitive gameplay. Now the rewards are stepping up, as is the organization.
If there's one thing I know about gamers, it's that most struggle with procrastination. Sure, in-game we're all about doing all the things, but in real life it just seems like too much effort. But you should take the dive and sign up for DGL - you could win stuff, or at least have a good time.
Team xTc is currently tied at the top for BF4 in the DGL Premier League. Their captain, Stephen "Lang-Slang" de Wit, was kind enough to answer some questions about their DGL experience, Battlefield 4 compared to 3, and their experience as part of the Southern Barbarians.
While many of us spent the long weekend catching up on gaming backlogs and eating mountains of chocolate, some of South Africa's best Dota 2 players were going head to head. There were two major tournaments this weekend: the Liberty LAN and the MSSA's provincial online championships. Check out all the details.
We all knew that Hearthstone was going to go big. It's an addictive game and people with all kinds of gaming tastes are getting hooked - it's even coming to iPad so you can carry on your addiction on the move. But how much impact is it having on eSports?
Ah, the seasons - they are a'changing. I'm wearing slippers again, so it must be winter. Which means, it's time to register for the DGL Winter Leg. That's right, you can still nab a spot at the championships, and all those awesome prizes.
I'm loving these sponsorship announcements for the DGL. It seems like they are getting all the big names to sign on with fantastic prizes. The good people over at SteelSeries are the latest to announce their support for the DGL, sweetening the pot for Dota 2 players.
The Do Gaming League (DGL) is certainly growing and doing well. They secured awesome sponsorships from MSi and ASUS most recently, and now Ster Kinekor Entertainment is jumping on board to help with all the best vroom vroom action.
The DGL has come a long way from its inception. It is the name in local competitive gaming and their registrations keep on breaking records. Now, they are offering some huge prizes thanks to some fantastic new sponsors.
Re Vera is playing League of Legends in the DGL again, and once more they are dominating the competition. Do they have what it takes to go all the way?
