The Calendar is no less busy than in previous years, and it has increased the number of on-line championships both at school level as well as for Premier players.
Unfortunately certain events have been dropped, such as the On-line Schools StarCraft Championships, but what with StarCraft II being played very actively in the MSSA's MWEB On-line Schools championships, such a duplication is no longer required.
I feel that the moving of the Free State Championship to June is also encouraging. To hold the Free State event in September is quite awkward for this eSports hungry province. Generally the MSSA holds its National Team Trials for the IeSF's World Championships in early September, which I feel may have compromised some of the wonderful talent that exists in the province.
As usual, the MSSA has distributed the calendar for comment.
The proposed calendar is:
2015 Calendar of events
- International events still need to be included.
- Inter-Provincial events need to be included
- Inter-regional events need to be included
- Regional Championships need to be included.
- Free State is moved to earlier in the year.
