FIFA is a big deal globally. A lot of the time we forget that eSports don’t only exist in the MOBA and shooter realms, but also leak over into sports titles. Competitive FIFA has been growing locally thanks to MainGaming, but this year it took a massive step forward. Meet Shuaib Hassen, South Africa’s representative at the Electronic Sports World Cup this year.
Do you play FIFA 13? Do you want to travel the world and stand a chance to win $20 000? It may not be Japan World Cup, but Electronic Sports World Cup is gearing up in South Africa, and if you win, you get a trip to Paris to compete for the top prize!
This weekend MainGaming is hosting two FIFA 13 tournaments with a collective prize purse of R7000. The Road to Wembley tournament continues, as well as a 2v2 Faceoff.
I’m so broke right now, that I can’t even afford to pay attention. Derp. That’s why I’m going to sell everything I own except my PC and become a gypsy pro gamer. Maybe I’ll also get my share of all the cash going around lately. Like the cash MainGaming will be giving away this weekend.
This weekend MainGaming brings some more awesome to every one’s lives. They’re offering more than R5000.00 up for grabs this weekend. They’ll be hosting some FIFA 13 and Tekken Tag Tournament 2 at the Bright Water Commons in Randburg on both Saturday and Sunday.
FIFA 13 fans assemble! Do you want an all expenses paid trip to watch the UEFA Champions League in London? Of course you do, and that’s why I’m going to tell you when the next match in the tournament is that can get you there.
Yep that’s right! If you live in Cape Town you could stand a chance to win R5000 by doing what you love; gaming. MainGaming and Megarom present the Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Roadshow.
LAN gaming is a very important part of competitive gaming (eSports) world wide, while many leagues are held online, finals and international tournaments are hosted at LAN with great turnouts and spectacular spectatorship. Here’s a look at how to get into it in South Africa.
This week in eSports we looked at Microsoft SA’s Halo 4 tournament semi’s, new features coming to StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm, the MLG kicking off, some crazy MainGaming LAN awesomeness, a pro LoL player getting the banhammer for life, an interview with Energy eSport’s own Bhond and what’s been happening with the SECS on Sundays.

MainGaming is hosting two most awesome LANs this month, and I say most awesome because the games played and prizes are, well, amazeballs.
Football games! Look, look at them! There they are! It’s time to settle old scores on the digital pitch, like 1-1 and 2-0, once again! Jokes aside, when it comes to footie games, they’re pretty damn popular over here. Why, I’ll never know, but then again, I think that rugby players need to score runs and avoid the wickets as it is. Feel like you’re the best in the country though, when it comes to FIFA? Time to put those skills to the test then.
It is with a very heavy heart that we say goodbye to a loved and well known gamer that has been a part of the Call of Duty 4 community for a long time. Sean ‘Sniper’ Lancaster had passed away on Wednesday after his struggle with leukaemia.
This week in eSports has been a very busy week. We’ve seen the DOTA 2 SteelSeries Spring League and Apex Interactive Gioteck BF3 Conquest League kick off, more impressive DGL playoff results and local team Bravado taking to the international stage. Maingaming is also hosting their FIFA 12 online qualifiers tonight as well as a FIFA 12 Interactive Challenge at Killarney Mall tomorrow.
The Maingaming Fear Elite vs Delta issue that has been raging all week has finally been completed, I’ll leave it to you to decide if the rulings are fair or not as I feel it is time to put this to rest and move onto the next stage in life.
