Lazygamer will be hosting our very first Dota 2 LAN tournament this month, here are some updates about the tournament entries and shoutcasting. And if you missed our post last week because you were to busy enjoying the long weekend, I’ll give you a little recap too.
This weekend’s StarCraft 2 Invitational will be shoutcasted by some of South Africa’s best. Etienne "Celestial" Nel and Kyle "Congo" Wolmarans will partner up to bring us the most exciting and awesome shoutcasting throughout the tournament.

Trevor “qu1ksh0t” Henry is well known in the old school Call of Duty 4 community in South Africa.
