North West University (NWU) has been the proud headline sponsor of the only official school league for esports since 2019.The prize money for the NWU Online School League has been increased to R65,000.00.
Part of the increase is a R4,000.00 payable to the school which earns the most points during the league.
The points earned by each participating school will be calculated on the participation of each learner who plays in the NWU Online School League. Points will be awarded based on the final position of each player.
In the case of individual events, the top player will earn points equal to the total number of participants for such game title. Thus should 50 players enter a particular game title, the first placed player shall earn 50 points, the second placed learner shall earn 49 points, the 3rd placed learner shall earn 48 points and so on, with the last placed learner earning 1 point for his/her school.
In team games, learners shall be awarded points on the same basis with the difference that the points earned shall be multiplied by the number of players in the team. Thus if 20 teams enter Counter-Strike: GO, the top team shall be awarded 100 points. The 100 points shall be made up of 20 (number of teams) x 5 (number of team members).
It is therefore evident that a school, just by sheer weight of participants, may be able to walk away with the award of top school.
The prize monies will be used by the school club as it sees fit, and in these difficult times, will no doubt be a welcome boost to a school's esports programme.
