DGL Masters

  • 28 August 2016: Flipsid3 Tactics 2 – 0 Veneration eSports

One of the few games that Veneration eSports actually deigned to show up for in Masters during Leg 2 ends in a categorical disaster as they’re trounced by Flipsid3 Tactics. VnR seem a shadow of the team that played in Leg 1 and it is doubtful they’ll elevate themselves from last position.

DGL Prem Div.

  • 22 August 2016: eXdee Gaming 2 – 0 TopKek
  • 24 August 2016: Immersion Reborn 2 – 1 Ventus DotA
  • 25 August 2016: Reversal FoJ 2 – 1 Immersion Reborn
  • 25 August 2016: Pulse Gaming 2 – 0 Singularity eSports
  • 27 August 2016: Ventus DotA 2 – 1 Pulse Gaming
  • 28 August 2016: Singularity eSports 2 – 1 Ventus Academy Pink
  • 28 August 2016: eXdee Gaming 2 – 0 Reversal FoJ
  • 28 August 2016: Ventus Academy Pink 2 – 0 TopKek

Team Immersion Reborn drop their first series of Leg 4 in a disappointing 2-1 loss against Reversal eSports FoJ, but a comprehensive display against Ventus DotA ensures that Team Immersion Reborn maintain a top 2 position at the end of the week. eXdee Gaming enjoy a welcome return to form and dispatch both TopKek and Reversal eSports FoJ to climb to 1st position at the end of the week, where the ex-Energy eSports squad are undoubtedly destined to stay. The bottom of the table is looking pretty rough with puLse.Salt looking in horrific form in dead last position. Their fortunes have certainly turned since Leg 1, as they’re looking considerably weaker than the team which came second in their opening outing in Prem Div. just a few months ago. Unless some serious changes are made any of the bottom three teams (Pulse Gaming, TopKek, and Reversal FoJ) are going to be relegated to First Div. in the coming weeks.

Eclipse Cup

  • 28 August 2016: eXdee Gaming 2 vs 1 Ventus DotA

eXdee Gaming eliminate Ventus DotA from the Eclipse Cup and progress to play against Aperture Gaming in the Losers Bracket Finals. Ventus DotA will be happy with how far they made it in the competition but will be disappointed to come so close to edging out eXdee Gaming.

The WESG Africa and Middle East Qualifier LAN Final held in Dubai over the weekend of 26-28 August, where eight teams are battling for the Africa and Middle East Qualifier spots to participate in the 2016 main WESG event. The top 3 finishing teams at the LAN event will progress to the main event. White Rabbit Gaming and Bravado Gaming both qualified from the South Africa region after successfully defeating other local teams. Eight teams are split into two groups (four in Group A and four in Group B), playing 3x Bo1 fixtures. Bravado Gaming convincingly won all three group stage games to end at the top of Group B and advanced to the knockout stage. White Rabbit Gaming, however, finish 3rd in their group and are sadly eliminated (suffering defeats against Dark Passage and aboshamalah, both of whom finish above WRG in Group A). Bravado eventually finish 3rd, suffering a loss against Dark Passage but netting the victory in the 3rd place playoff against SliCe N’ Dice.
