After due consideration and discussion, MSSA has decided to increase the number of Registered Players selected to form the national esports squad. Selecting a squad has a number of benefits as it allows MSSA to experiment with different combinations in order to ensure that South Africa can proudly field the best possible team from the Registered Players that had participated at MSSA's National Team Trials.
Without doubt the most important, and central figure, of the squad is the Team Captain.
Thus MSSA agonizes over who should be selected as the Team Captain. The Team Captain shall lead the official South African League of Legends Team to IeSF's 9th World Championships - Busan.
So much has to fall on the shoulders of the Team Captain, such as morale, discipline, roster, leadership, and so forth.
However, MSSA has at last reached a decision on the Team Captain who is to lead South Africa's Protea League of Legends team.
The team captain selected is none other than Brandon Fester of the VexxedPhoenix Gaming Club from Cape Town.
Brandon “Brafester” Fester’s history in competitive eSports started four years ago where he captained a team of friends, with the goal to be the best. His determination and passion helped his teammates, and opponents, grow as players and people, but his leadership is what ultimately pushed him to the top.
He is currently captain of the Goon Squad, the current DGC champions and strongest team in the country for League of Legends. He too promotes growth and development in his communities and organisation.
He is currently working on improving his individual skill and preparing his teams for various League of Legends tournaments. On being informed of his selection to the position of Team Captain, Brandon stated, " This has officially become the best and most important day of my life. I can think of nothing more prestigious than representing my country, let alone captaining the side!
Thank you for the strength and support! I too have high hopes for the team and future of South African esports on all fronts. I shall do my best to ensure we can not only meet expectations, but exceed them where possible!" MSSA is proud of its choice in Brandon and looks forward to his term as National Team Captain for League of Legends.
