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.

Damn, the ESWC might need to find a new name, because we all know eSports ain’t sports (according to some people and their dictionaries). Like last year, the event will be hosted by France during Paris Games Week. Local team Energy eSports will be there again, except instead of clicking things in Dota 2, they will be shooting stuff in Counter-Strike-Global Offensive.

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.

This weekend, some of you may be hunting for Easter Eggs. Instead, the top Dota 2 teams in South Africa will be playing at the Dota 2 Liberty LAN Easter Tournament. You can watch, too - make it part of your Easter family braai.

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.

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?

Last night saw the two South African powerhouses meet in what was billed to be a “grudge match” following the January shuffle. There seemed to be a lot of playful banter between the players, both in-game (when there was an extended pause due to Doni having some technical issues) as well as in the lobby. The match was a pre-season (that is, pre-DGL) show match, organised by Zoot to get some exposure for the local community, and as an icebreaker for him into the Dota 2 casting world. Zoot is a well-known face in the Quake scene, casting at top-tier events both live and online.

Last year was an incredible year for Energy with their DOTA 2 not only claiming South Africa’s pride back with the defeat against the Mexican competition but they also beat the long running dominant team, Bravado, in the hotly contested DOTA 2 Do Gaming League.

I remember when I first played League of Legends. I could easily play for at least 4-5 hours a day - it was fun and addictive and I felt like every game I played taught me something new about the gameplay and champions. Of course, I was still (and still am) an absolute n00b. However, there are plenty of excellent local teams that are getting sponsorships and winning tournaments - how can they make the leap to becoming eSports pros? One team asked Reddit, and got quite an earful.

Tis the season and all that jazz, which means we need to combine festivities with helping others. What better way to do that then to have a gaming marathon to raise money for the children? So we're teaming up with The H.I.V.E. for an end of year function for an awesome cause.

Despite giving it the old college try, Energy eSports were knocked out of the ESWC yesterday. Although it's frustrating and sad, Energy put up a good fight. Here's how it went down.

We are all very proud of the guys of Energy eSports for getting invited to the ESWC to play Dota 2. There they will be taking on the likes of Evil Geniuses. In fact, they play eG today, and you can watch and show your support.
