MSSA Details August Online Championships


eSports news, eSports news everywhere! Here's a quick look at the eSports stories we've covered in the past seven days:

Bottom line? It pays to play competitive gaming. No, I'm not only talking about money but also about gaining experience and opportunities. That's where being part of Mind Sports South Africa comes in. Just one of the benefits are that the MSSA takes a national team to compete at the annual International eSports Federation (IeSF) World Championship. They have been taking a team to compete against some of the world's top cyber athletes for years. Poland's third largest city, Lodz, will host the 7th World Championship, and the MSSA will again take a team to compete.

On August 15 the MSSA and MWEB GameZone will host three online championships where players can once again get a shot at qualifying for national team trials - should the MSSA need to choose a team.
