|Maritzburg College's 2016 DotA 2 team.|
The school terms meant that some school teams in the past had to forfeit their games as they were not able to play in the allocated weeks.
All-in-all such system was less than perfect.
Considering that the online league delivers provincial colours and qualifies teams for National Team Trials, MSSA was aware that much had to be done to maintain the integrity of the league.
Thus MSSA's MANCOM has approved that the league be split into two for the 2017 season. The split will be between schools on the 3 term and on the 4 term systems as follows:
|3 term school league -||4 term school league -|
|1st round - week ending 5 May 2017||1st round - week ending 28 July 2017|
|2nd round - week ending 12 May 2017||2nd round - week ending 4 August 2017|
|3rd round - week ending 19 May 2017||3rd round - week ending 11 August 2017|
|4th round - week ending 26 May 2017||4th round - week ending 18 August 2017|
|5th round - week ending 2 June 2017||5th round - week ending 25 August 2017|
