Meanwhile, the CS: GO ‘Battle for the Throne’ tournament has reached its semi-final stage which sees eN.Heat face Damage Control and Bravado battle Eternal Conflict for a place in the final.

In the Dota 2 tournament, the team cap has been increased from 32 to 64 following the original cap being reached a week before registrations closed. Register your team here to avoid disappointment. Registrations are also still open for the Call of Duty Advanced Warfare tournament on Xbox One.

Finally, the busy organisation is also running a competition in conjunction with The Division. Up for grabs is an AMD FX8320 3.5GHz CPU. To enter (by Friday 20 February), follow the instructions as laid out here.

The 360 Lounge

The 360 Lounge – who opened for business in December 2014 – has announced their closure to move to “bigger and better premises”.

No date of the re-opening has been suggested, but the venue is promising updates.

TTSA

TTSA_Logo_01The TTSA crew is offering something a little different from the usual drifting events. Starting Monday 23 February and running every Monday evening thereafter, street racing will be the focus. Well, virtual street racing in Forza 4.

The ‘Street Outlaws’ series will be a competitive one with credits up for grabs (and required for a buy-in). If you’re keen to show off your inner speed demon, head here for details.

GWZA

GWZA_Tuurnament Champions_FIFA_01Gaming World SA has announced their FIFA 15 ‘Tournament of Champions’ which will be run on the Xbox One (and online we assume).

The tournament is scheduled for 7 and 8 March and offers prizes such as Microsoft Points, Gunnar glasses and a “SECRET” prize.

Interested participants must email info@gamingworldsa.co.za with their full name, gamertag and clan (if you happen to be part of one of course).
