The Electronics and Gaming Expo, which takes place annually at the Cape Town Convention Center, has become a hotspot for esports. Happening a week after the Rush Expo, EGE is offering a great array of esports tournaments from the ESWC CS:GO Qualifiers to the newly announced Dota 2 VS Gaming Masters finals.
White Rabbit Gaming, winners of the VS Gaming Masters (and 2016 Champions).
The finals, which ran alongside CS:GO last year at rAge, will now feature their own Championship at EGE for their half of the prize pool – R550,000. South Africa’s top eight Masters teams will travel to the Mother City on July 28th to compete for that top prize, and be crowned this year’s VS Gaming Masters Champion.
“This expo is all about esports, cosplay and gaming – both competitive and casual, so it makes perfect sense for VS Gaming to be involved. It’s really the epitome of all things we love and promote. This event attracts people from all over South Africa who share similar passions, so it is a natural fit for us to hold our Dota2 Grand Finals here as well,” said VS Gaming CEO Cambridge Mokanyane.
“As the largest esports league on the continent we are continuously looking for new and exciting ways to grow our footprint and this expo gives us that opportunity in Cape Town. We are excited to be bringing our live format of esports back to the Western Cape.”
VS Gaming’s transition from DGL has been notable in their delivery of tournaments and professional production (in partnership with SuperSport). The level of professionalism and quality has risen to set a new standard in South Africa, one that is being met by other tournament hosts. Take it from, the biggest critic of the former DGL, things have changed, and their tournament at EGE is going to be a much needed one for Dota 2 fans.
