It was in the annual MSSA's MWEB Dota 2 On-line Championships that the team 'Some Random Slackers' from the Knights Mind Sports Club showed no quarter as they cut their way through one opponent after another showing their true mettle.

The MWEB Dota 2 On-line Championships were the last chance that the South African gaming community had to qualify for the 2014 Protea Team Trials.

While many teams had taken advantage of the year long qualification period, there were a few teams that left qualification for the National Team Trials to the very last minute.

The Cape Town based team 'Some Random Slackers' was just one such team. All five members of the team are from Cape Town. The team members of 'Some Random Slackers' are; Ion 'NotioN' Todd, Tim 'Zealot' Mostert, Jason 'Mehcrim' Bredberg, Dylan 'Pixelpusha' Henderson, and Saleem 'Slimz' Manjoo.

Nevertheless, the team seemed to work well under pressure as they demolished each and every team that they were drawn against.

Such was the skill of the team, under the leadership of Ion 'NotioN' Todd, that the team ended up winning all their games and thus also earning themselves Western Cape Provincial Colours at the same time. Only the two teams from Tuks University tried to stop the relentless onslaught, but to no avail.

The team has thus too sailed through to qualify for the Protea Team Trials in which 17 other teams have also qualified to make the 2014 National Team Trials the most hotly contested trials ever. It is at such trials that the MSSA shall select the official South African National Team that shall play in a number of on-line test matches.

The results of the MWEB Dota 2 On-line Championships are:

Dota 2: Premier

Name of Team Club Pts
1 Some Random Slackers KMSC 8
2 TMSC Rekt Tuks 6
3 TMSC Sabotage Tuks 4
