South Africa demolishes Namibia in DotA 2


MSSA’s Team Esports South Africa for the DotA 2 title.

With IESF’s African Regional Championships having been plagued with issues, the actual off-line event to have been held in Abijan (Ivory Coast) from 28 to 30 October 2022 having to be cancelled, IESF has had to fall back to holding the event online.

This of course poses many problems due to the size of Africa, which is depicted incorrectly on all standard world maps, the poor infrastructure, the high latency, and the dearth of servers in South Africa.

Mind Sports South Africa (MSSA) had initially entered its Counter-Strike: GO team and Tekken 7 player directly into International Esports Federation’s 14th World Championships to be held in Bali later this year.

This means that the other teams entered by MSSA being, PUBGM, DotA 2, and Mobile Legends Bang Bang, had to qualify for Bali through IESF’s online African Regional Championships.

The match between South Africa and Namibia saw South Africa take control of both games from the very beginning. At no stage did the Protea team let up and Namibia struggled to inflict any real damage on South Africa.

The South African victory against Namibia saw South Africa move through to the finals to battle against Algeria for a spot at IESF’s 14th World Championships to be held in Bali.

MSSA’s official Protea DotA 2 Team is:
