|Donald Mullany (Old Edwardian Mind Sports Club) captains Old Ed's DotA 2 team.|
Nevertheless, some of the skills aquired in such discipline seem to be transferable, and OEMSC was able to successfully challenge Sinister5 for pole position in the DotA 2 ladder.
The club, since 1991, has produced 22 players who have received senior Springbok and/or Protea Colours and 10 players who have received junior Protea Colours.
The club too holds the distinction of hosting MSSA's first esports provincial championships, being the 1998 Gauteng Provincial Championships.
The team fielded by the Old Edwardian Mind Sports Club for the Ladder match, consisted of 5 veterans of which 3 players have been awarded Protea Colours in the past (Donald Mullany, Colin Webster, and David Webster), one player has Gauteng Provincial Colours (Terence Allwright) and only 'youngster' Des Schoeman has yet to earn provincial or national colours.
It just goes to show that the 'Old Guard' is still able to fight their way to the top.
The full ladder for the DotA 2 esports is as follows:
