CS: GO – Why you should take notice of ESEA in South Africa

The E-Sports Entertainment Association League (ESEA) is an esports competitive video gaming community that South African Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS: GO) players might have heard of or seen it being talked about in local groups. The ESEA is known for their anti-cheating software and of course their system that allows players of all levels to play matches with each other.

One of the greatest things about ESEA is that you could play with some top-class players, learn from them and at the same time grow the community. In case you love playing CS: GO, especially competitively, then you should check it out. The community manager for ESEA in South Africa and one of the most recognisable names in local CS: GO, Robby blackpoisoN da Loca, provided a statement:

“I wanted to reach out to you to talk about the improvements we are making in South Africa and what plans we have for the future. When we launched South Africa we wanted to bring the country, and region, the best possible playing experience for Counter-Strike, and also help by hosting international LANs you guys could be part of. Since our launch, we quickly saw success, but as you know growth has been difficult. We want to change that, and the first step is our responsibility. We recognise that we could have done a better job, and we invite you to join us in continuing to grow the South African CS scene!”

ESEA membership and ladders

The price of a Premium ESEA membership has also been lowered in South Africa, so you can now pick it up for only R45 on Steam. Robby talks about the price reduction:

“This is the first step in growing the community bigger and better. To help kick-off the new price, we've sent everyone from South Africa their own 1-week trial and one to share with a friend. We invite you and your friends to come back and enjoy the best experience possible.”

Further, various ladders have been launched in all regions, including 1v1, 2v2 and 5v5. Robby explains that:

“As of right now the prizing is ESEA points, but as the region continues to grow we will alter the prizes to skins and other cool items. The ladder system allows you to queue up through the client to find matches, making it easier than ever for you to quickly find a game and play. We believe there is a very bright future for South Africa and the region around it, and this is only the first change we are making to grow the region. We'll be adding more events, prizing as the region grows and we want everyone to be part of it.”
