Good day SA gamers. It felt like another busy week in South Africa, and it certainly doesn’t appear to be letting up.

If you missed it, we covered the recent MWEB GameZone Ghosts Masters Series LAN tournament, which was taken by Team Opulence. Additional coverage can be found on eSportsLive.

Almost everything else is covered below.

Telkom DGL

Registrations for the Winter Leg of the DoGaming League have opened. DGL’s regular games, as well as the newer additions such as console Call of Duty, are all featured. While teams wait for the start of the Winter Leg, a number of others are still battling it out in the Summer Leg playoffs.

IventsZA

IventsZA has announced their 1000+ ‘SetUp’ LAN which will run for three days in July. The event is due to run 18 to 20 July and promises at least “18 hours of tournaments per discipline.” It will feature PC, PlayStation and Xbox.

If you’re wondering why the dates clash with the MWEB Masters Series Ghosts event in Gauteng, a little birdie has suggested the two may happen together at the same venue.
