The first news we have to tell you (if you missed it) is that the Orena Life Child Invitational LAN event has been sadly cancelled. Read more about it here.
Mountain Dew SA will be giving away ten copies of Call of Duty Advanced Warfare a week. How many weeks the comp will run over is not yet known, but hit them up on Facebook and be kept in the loop.
We’re giving away R200 credit for use on Cheap Codes. You need to get to it by midday Friday, so head here and get your entry in.
