After a brief welcome by the MSSA's General Secretary, the eSports Chairman handed out the awards of provincial colours to those gamers who had not yet received such.
With the formalities completed, the Chief umpire, Morizane Boyes, took matters into her hands, the gamers took to their seats, deliberations were done, and the games of the 2015 MWEB Inter-Provincial between Gauteng and Mpumulanga began.
The air was thick with tension!
Supporters had come from Johannesburg, Pretoria and Witbank to witness the clash.
Would the younger team from Mpumulanga be able to match the more experienced Gauteng team that was peppered with players from the MWEB Protea eSports Team?
The Mpumulanga Provincial team showed their character and put up a jolly good fight, often thwarting the more experienced Gauteng team, but the total onslaught proved too much for the newly formed Mpumulanga team which eventually lost to a very much stronger opponent.
The final results were thus:
The players that participated were:
|Dota 2||VS||Dota 2|
|Claude van der Merwe||Hercules Strydom|
|Michael Myburgh||Darryl van der Westhuizen|
|Dirk van Velden||Jan Helmut Luttig|
|Ryan Lancaster||Adrian Jansen|
|Tertius de Bruin||Jacques Kruger|
|Johan Heymans||Etien Du plesis|
|Michael Boucher||Michiel Vorster|
|Cornel Venter||William Glaeser|
|Duncan Smal||Garrith Adems|
|Christiaan Brummer||Gert Opperman|
Both teams still have face up against the KwaZulu Natal Provincial Teams as well as the Western Cape Provincial Team.
There is a long road ahead to determine which is the strongest province in these two titles.
