|Westville Boys' 'Toxic Monkeys'.|
The esports title of League of Legends has been played at IESF's World Championships in 2013 (Bucharest), 2015 (Seoul), 2016 (Jakarta), and in 2017 (Busan).
Thus it is no surprise that Mind Sports South Africa (MSSA) promotes the title as much as possible at every level.
The various League of Legends teams that have represented South Africa at all of the above-named IESF World Championships have done so with pride, made many a new friend, and have been an absolute credit to the country.
However, it all starts at school level.
MSSA's 8th Online Inter-School Championships held on 10 February 2018, were hotly fought, and although 'Toxic Monkeys' (Westville Boys) were the ultimate victors, three teams (15 players) have qualified for MSSA's National Team Trials (NTT).
Many more gamers will no doubt qualify for such Trials at MSSA's 36th Gauteng Championships to be held at Northcliff High School to be held on 24 and 25 February 2018.
