SA Gaming News Wrap

You’ll have to forgive us a little as we’re still in recovery from EGE 2016 and have plenty of post-event admin to do which means our coverage of the event and what’s happening around SA itself is not as comprehensive as we like. Please bear with us and normal broadcasts will resume soon.

We will be posting a number of EGE wraps soon, including our winners, other visitor’s coverage and more.

In case you missed some local news over the last week, head here:


Upcoming Events

Bit of a quiet weekend this one with only the Cold Fusion LAN listed and the Telkom DGL Leg 4 scheduled to start on Monday 8 August. A number of other ongoing events currently underway including the HaloSA tournament, Eclipse CupOrena’s Ladders, ESEAPredator MGMS and more.

  • Overwatch action from the Orena ladders kicks off at 7:30pm tonight with a second match happening at 9:30pm. The action will be live via Orena’s Twitch channel.
  • Cold Fusion LAN heads back to Laerskool Edleen for their (almost) monthly BYO LAN. Expect tournaments and socialising for R80 per person. The action starts at 6pm on Friday 5 August and will run until Sunday morning at 9am. Details can be found on the event page.

Remember to keep these days open for some upcoming action a little further in the future:


Competitions & Giveaways


DGL_Crest_02Telkom DGC

If you’ve been wondering whether Telkom will still be hosting titles other than the Masters titles at rAge 2016, wonder no more as the Digital Gaming Championships titles have now been announced.

The PC gets the majority of love with Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Dota 2, Battlefield 4, League of Legends and Black Ops 3, while Black Ops 3 also features on the PlayStation 4 and Hearthstone gets a run on all supported platforms.

The prize pool is still to be confirmed, but the action happens at the TicketPro Dome over the weekend of 7 to 9 October.
