|The 2015 Protea eSports Team that attended the 7th World Championships - Seoul|
The majority of those that qualified reside in Gauteng with a close second being the Western Cape. Mpumulanga and North West came in tie third. It is hoped that 2017 will see Western Cape wrest the trials down to Cape Town.
At this moment in time, it can thus be revealed that the Trials shall be held in Gauteng. MSSA is awaiting clubs to revert to MSSA as to their ability to host such Trials.
However MSSA is delighted in the increase in both standard and quantity of gamers.
For the team events alone (CS: GO, DotA 2, and League of Legends) there are no less than 38 teams that made the grade.
The expense and effort incurred by MSSA in hosting events in areas which others consider to be not worthwhile, is a vital part of creating a greater groundswell upon which eSports in South Africa will be able to build a bigger and better future.
