Posted in Latest News

Klerksdorp Midweek, Klerksdorp – Mind Sports South Africa (MSSA) has just released the updated seedings for Fighter V.

The seedings show that long-term veteran, Mxolisi Lukhele (Amplified Rebellion), has once again assumed pole position.

Mxolisi finished 2019 as the number one ranked athlete, and it seems as though Mxolisi has no intention of relinquishing his title.

However, Victor Strauss (Hoërskool Klerksdorp) had a stellar South African Online National Championships and finished in first place after having beaten all of his opponents.

As a result of his spectacular victory, Victor earned himself High School National Colours and had a meteoric rise up the rankings to be ranked in fourth place. Another learner from Hoërskool Klerksdorp, Theunis van der Merwe, is in second place.

Next on the esports programme is the NWU MSSA Online School League to be played from the week ending 17 July. The closing date is 10 July. The Online League (NWU MSSA Online School League) offers prizes other than just the medals and provincial colours.

The prizes include a R30 000 bursary for the winner of the StreetFighter V esports title, and R5 000 prize money for the school for the winner of the Paladins esports title, and R5 000 prize money for the school for the winner of the DotA 2 esports title, and R5 000 prize money for the school for the winner of the efootball PES 2020 esports title.

By playing in the official school league, learners are able to also earn medals for finishing in the first three places in the various game titles, and school provincial colours, and a berth in the 2020 MSSA National Team Trials. The entry fee is R35 per player.
