It is most pleasing therefore, that with the final determination of the results, that for the first time ever, females have taken titles. Not content with taking one title, two titles were wrested away from male domination.
On 23 October 2017 it was reported that 'Revival' (of IntenSity E-Sports) took the top place in the CounterStrike: GO Ladder. The team has hung on to the position to end up as the 2017 SA National Ladder Champions. There is no doubt that the team consisting of Blair "Blunts&Blair" Hamberger, Jessi-Rae "Jessi-Rae" Warren, Heike "psyxgypsy" Romatzki, Sasha-Leigh "Emo" Morrison, and Kira "Starlight" Leigh Allen intend to make a difference.
Then there is Kaira Gabriella Pinard (Valhalla) who managed to win two titles at the SA National Championships. However, it was only in HearthStone that Kaira managed to take the title of SA National Ladder Champion.
