Bravado Gaming

Bravado has just come off a great win at this years EGE Lan where they managed to take the number one spot by defeating their biggest rivals, Energy eSports. The squad has undergone several changes over the past few month as Andres 'Cent' Hadjipascali stepped down as team captain, taking on the role of team coach instead. Furthermore, Christopher ‘anthem’ Lake and Dean ‘HackeM’ Seyfriend have also left the team. It seems like their current roster is already pulling in results and are looking to become one of the first two teams to qualify for the MGMS Grand Finals.

Energy eSports 

The Energy eSports Counter-Strike: Global Offensive team, formerly known as c7e, were the first place winners in the Do Gaming League Ready.Set.GO! Cup. Energy eSports were expected to take the top spot at the EGE Lan but were outdone by a relentless Bravado team. Energy eSports are gunning for the number one spot in the MGMS and are one of the favourites to represent South Africa at  the ESWC CS:GO Championship.

Eternal Conflict

Eternal Conflict, established in 2007, have established themselves as a top-tier South African CS:GO team. The squad has managed to take 4th place at the EGE lan and have remained undefeated in the DGL for 2015 and the Orena Ladder. Eternal are a powerhouse squad and are looking to the MGMS to retain their online supremacy. 

Damage Control 

Damage Control (DC) was established on the 1st of January 2001 and remains one of the oldest and most successful teams in South African gaming history. DC have represented South Africa a record number of times at major international competitions and plan on continuing to do so.

Over a month ago, Ventus acquired their first CS:GO team.
