The year is slowly but surely drawing to an end. With it comes the Do Gaming Championship, a tournament that takes the best teams from their respective game and league, and puts them to the test to determine who really is the best. Here’s all you need to know about this year’s event if you plan on playing or spectating.
I’m quite fond of Heroes of the Storm. True to Blizzard and their game formula, it’s easy to pick up, but difficult to master. I’ve been interested to see it played from a professional point of view for a while now. It looks like I may finally be getting my wish. The game now has its own league.
Valve isn't just about Steam, you know. They are also the brains behind Dota 2 and Counter-Strike. Those brains are being rewarded with the success of The International, and they might want to give similar treatment to other games in Valve's stable.
The International is just about here, Dota 2 followers rejoice! Kicking off the festivities is the play-in series, featuring 4 teams who just missed a spot in the top 15. They still have a chance for glory and a slice of that huge $10 million prize pool though, as the winner of the play-in gets to take the 16th spot at TI4. Find all you need to know about these teams and their upcoming games after the jump.
There was a brawl going on this weekend. No, it wasn't on the football or rugby pitch, and it wasn't over the Steam Sale prices either. This was a Dota 2 brawl between (players from ) South Africa and the UK, and you can watch the finals tonight.
I keep hearing about local organizations that plan on taking the world of eSports by storm, but it's particularly funny when I read it in print in a press release. The latest group is promising cool prizes and even has an impressive international sponsor. Will they finally carry through on the promises of a storm?
HEARTHSTONE! By now, pretty much everybody has experienced Blizzard’s ludicrously addictive card game, Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft. It’s got the right balance now, it has an audience and it’s going to have plenty of cash on offer in time for Blizzcon this year. Poker, eat your heart out.
So my latest addiction is Blizzard's new card game, Hearthstone, and while I’m pretty useless at it I love how Blizzard handles the rankings so I am at least given a chance while I sit in my level 19 pit of squalor.
We’ve mentioned the $1 million COD tournament before but hey it’s a million dollars so we surely have to mention it again. The entries close in 16 days time and there are already 19 teams entered but only 4 have actually completed all the requirements.
Have you been watching our awesome event calendar? See, DGL registrations for the summer leg are open now, but they won't be forever, so you really should register now.
Over here at lazygamer, we like to have a good time. Sure, that good time normally involves a strange mixture of grunting and alcohol, except for Darryn who exchanges alcohol for his own hand. No really, we want to hear about all your cool events, parties, tournaments and shindigs.
I’ve seen a number of worrying reports that Xbox One’s DRM is actually still there, and has been causing issues with Killer Instinct tournaments. It is however, a problem that’s being misreported. Xbox One DRM isn’t killing Killer Instinct.
This weekend played host to the very last matches in Xbox South Africa’s Gears of War:Judgment tournament, crowning champions in both the lone wolf and clan categories. These are the country’s top Gears of War players.
I actually spent a fair bit of my Saturday evening watching the Gears of War: Judgment tournament’s live streams, and I have to say I’m really quite impressed with the level of play some of our Gears of War players have. I’m equally impressed with Microsoft’s tournament hosting skills with livestreams, and as impressed with the shoutcasting, which comes courtesy of Megarom’s marketing motormouth Devon Stanton – and our own fuzzy wookiee of love, Garth.
