|Bishop's DotA 1st team at MSSA's SA School National Championships where they earned their SA School Colours.|
However, Old Edwardian Mind Sports Club's (OEMSC) stay in pole position was short lived.
Bishops College challenged the Old Edwardian Mind Sports Club, the younger, and more energetic, Bishops DotA 2 team consists of Matthew von Bulow, Tristan Smith, Alaric McGregor, Karl stapelberg and Calum Fraser.
Bishop's DotA 1st team has shown commitment, dedication, and a much improved skill in 2018 as borne out by the school team's performance during the Online Provincial School Championships (where they obtained 1st place), and the SA School National Championships (where the team again toook 1st place). It should be noted that MSSA started its School Championships in 1996.
The Ladder works on a system of challenges.
Clubs may challenge any club on the ladder. Any club so challenged has 5 days within which to respond and play the match. Such rule allows the ladder to retain its dynamic nature and stops the challenged club from delaying unnecessarily.
However, any team challenged during any official MSSA event while both teams are participating in such event, and are paired by the umpire to play against each other, must play such challenge. This means that any or all games in a MSSA Regional, Provincial, and/or National Championship may count as ladder games.
The full rules for the ladder may be found here: Important changes to MSSA's Inter-Club Ladder rules.
The current ladder for the esports title of DotA 2 esports title is as follows:
