The long running MGMS has reached its final stages with the online grand finals taking place this weekend. The MGMS has long been one of South Africa’s premier Call of Duty competitions, and since its introduction to CS:GO in 2014, the competition has expanded to include South Africa’s best teams from all around the country. Unfortunately, this year the MGMS finals will take place online as teams have an extremely tight eSports schedule. It’s both unfortunate and exciting, knowing that there’s just too many eSports tournaments at the moment.
Although the event will take place online, viewers are invited to the MWEB HQ to watch all matches live. MWEB HQ is situated at 100 Fairway Close, Parrow North, Cape Town, so head on down for a packed day of eSports action. Both competitions have a R22,000 prize for the top four teams and feature South Africa’s best.
