If you were told South Africa has little or no competitive scene, we’d guess you’d be pretty upset. But before you storm the palace gates to behead anyone, no-one has actually said that. Some might see a silence as a quiet acknowledgement but it is probably just, well, silence.
Anyway, the silence, or even lack of communication in the first place, has rallied and riled the SA Call of Duty community on console as they demand (let’s cut to the chase rather than delicately tip toe) the opportunity to see a team enter the 2013 Call of Duty Championship event. With a prize packet of $1 million, one can see why there would be a few angry hopefuls.
The championship will play host to 32 teams from around the world who are busy with qualifiers to attend the event in Los Angeles. Except the qualifiers currently running are for 26 of the 32 teams, leaving six places unspoken for. The 26 teams playing currently represent teams in America, Europe, Australia, New Zealand and Southeast Asia, but according to Nicholas Holden via Mweb Gamezone, South Africa is “not even [being] considered.”
So, this is a call to arms. Get your voice heard by the powers that be and tweet the following:

Time is of the essence, so don’t delay, support SA Gaming today.
Just one thing though… if they accept a South African team, who is going to sponsor the four players and admin team to get to the event?
