SA Team Trials

The MSSA has put up the following on their facebook page:
Hot news:

If you play Dota 2 or CounterStrike GO, dust off your keyboards, flex your fingers, and get ready.

The IeSF has just advised members that Dota 2 and CounterStrike GO will both be played at the IeSF's 2015 World Championships.

The above is indeed good news!

Indeed this is good news!

CounterStrike is hugely popular in Europe and now at last South Africa can select an official MWEB sponsored Protea team to officially take on the best in the world.

But, just who will that team be?

The MSSA's very fair policy of qualification is simple. Players that finish in the top three positions (or the top twenty percent, whichever is greater) allows a number of players to qualify for the prestigious National Team Trials.

Added to the fact that all events held by the MSSA during a calendar year prior to the event count for delivering qualifiers, it means that there should be many gamers from which to choose. That means if Trials are to be held on 1 June 2015, then all the championships within the period 1 June 2014 to 1 June 2015 count for qualification purposes. In other words, 2014 Eastern Cape, 2014 KwaZulu, 2014 Western Cape, 2014 Free State, 2014 Limpopo, 2015 North West, 2014 Gauteng, 2015 Mpumalanga Provincial Championships, as well as the S A National LAN Championships, any Regional Championships within the period and the on-line championships would count for qualification purposes.

In other words a minimum of 25 teams would qualify for trials!

2015 is going to be a fun year!
