|Xola Magwaze has returned!|
Thus MSSA's 33rd Gauteng Championships (sponsored by MWEB) is the third last championship in which players may qualify for such Trials.
For those teams that have qualified, the work has begun in earnest in order to hone their skills for Trials, while some players are still desperately trying to qualify.
MSSA's 33rd Gauteng Provincia Championships were hosted by Tuks Mind Sports Club.
The championship attracted players from the Free State, Gauteng, North West, and Mpumulanga.
Players battled it out to earn the various titles of Gauteng Champion Champion, and the right to fight for a place in the 2016 National Team Trials that will ultimately deliver a team to the IeSF's 2016 8th World Championships in Jakarta from 6 to 9 October 2016.
In League of Legends, White Rabbit Gaming team maintained its winning ways that it started at the North West Championships. The team smashed their opposition to win all their games and by thus, truly enforce their position as the team to beat in South Africa.
However, special mention must be made of the St Stithians College team that finished in second place, and, which even gave White Rabbit a few (very) scary moments.
DotA 2 was dominated by Tuks Mind Sports Club. The North West Champions (Northcliff High School) battled long and hard to contain the juggernaut that which is Tuks, but were unable to, even with Herculean effort, do so.
Xola, after winning, stated, "Watch out Kyle, the champ is back!".
In Street Fighter V, Leonard Loftus travelled up fron Sasolburg to compete, and, compete he did. Loftus waded into the competition and emerged the victor.
This is the first championship where Street Fighter V was officially played.
