Results: 20th North West Provincial Championships

White Rabbit Gaming
MSSA's 20th North West Championships (sponsored by MWEB) hosted by St Conrad's College was indeed a success.

Thanks must be extended to MWEB, St Conrad's, Leonard Loftus and Mr. Hannes Esterhuizen.

The championship attracted players from both North  West, Mpumulanga and Gauteng, and players battled it out to earn the title of North West Champion Champion, and the right to fight for a place in the 2016 National Team Trials that will ultimately deliver a team to the IeSF's 2016 8th World Championships in Jakarta from 6 to 9 October 2016.

The championship delivered a number of surprises. Most notable of the surprise results were to be found in the League of Legends, FIFA, and Mortal Kombat X titles.

In League  of Legends, the newly formed White Rabbit Gaming team smashed the opposition. Only Sasolburg High offered any sort of resistance as White Rabbit surged forward to take first place, and by winning all their games, earned Provincial Colours in the process.

In FIFA, it has been held for the past couple of years that Matthew Brooks is without doubt the best player in North West. However, Matthew lead his school team to victory in CounterStrike: GO, where the team from St Conrad's smashed all the opposition to  take first  place  and  provincial colours. Thus  the field in FIFA was  wide open, and Kgosi Tshosa emerged as the victor.

This is the first championship where Mortal Kombat X  was officially played. The competition was tough and  delivered a champion in both the  men's  and women's sections.
