But can it play crysis

The DGL has come a long way from its inception. It is the name in local competitive gaming and their registrations keep on breaking records. Now, they are offering some huge prizes thanks to some fantastic new sponsors.

First up, we have DOTA 2. ASUS has come on board, sponsoring over R110k in hardware prizes. Nicole Celliers, ASUS SA Marketing Manager, says they’re excited to be involved with the DGL for 2014, particularly for Dota 2:

We have been looking to sponsor a tournament for some time and after the 2013 results from the Telkom DGL, it was decided that 2014 will be the perfect time to join. Looking at Dota 2, we feel that it is increasing in popularity in South Africa and will continue to grow in popularity. We are looking forward to the year ahead and feel that it will allow further growth for both ASUS South Africa and the Telkom DGL,

ASUS is sponsoring the following impressive prizes:

  • 1st Place:
  • 5x Maximus VI Formula motherboards
  • 5x NVIDIA GTX 770 graphics cards
  • 5x Intel Core i7 processors
  • 2nd Place:
  • 5x NVIDIA GTX 770 graphics cards
  • 3rd Place:
  • 5x Z87 Sabertooth motherboards

Next is Battlefield 4, which is now getting over R150k in hardware prizes from MSi. That’s a lot of hardware! In fact, MSi is giving away eight MSi GX series gaming laptops for prizes. That makes me want to take up playing Battlefield ASAP – I could totally work with winning such awesome stuff.

Wielding my lasso of truth, I am the combination of nerd passion and grammar nazi. I delve into all things awesome and geek-tastic. I believe people should stop defining themselves and just enjoy playing games, so let’s get on with it!

  • Admiral Chief in Vegas


    • Hondsepop

      Nah, it says AMD,

      • Kensei Seraph

        Still better than Dell.

      • Admiral Chief in Vegas

        Hence my comment

  • Rags

    The Quake Live guys get strippers. Gobz and Hydro :D/

    • Willem Swanepoel


      The pure skill FPS game gets strippers 😉 love it haha

  • Sir Rants A Lot Llew. Jelly!!!

    Now why can’t the DGL be the ones who are allowed to give colors and chose the official SA teams?

    • Kensei Seraph

      Maybe it’s because there isn’t enough corruption within the DGL?
      Not that I’m implying that any organizations related to giving out colours and choosing the official SA team is corrupt, they’re just inept.

      • Sir Rants A Lot Llew. Jelly!!!

        I wonder if they have even responded to mweb on the article they did…

        • Kensei Seraph

          I think they did.
          It was the one where non-MSSA gamers were told to “take a hike”.

          • Sir Rants A Lot Llew. Jelly!!!

            no no. not that one. The one where Mwebgaming responded the next day saying how unprofesional the response was and how to fix their stuff.

        • Gideon Venter

          I got banned from the MSSA page yesterday. All I did was ask a few questions. Then pointed out that their reply did not in fact answer the questions I asked…

          • Tarisma

            Did you pay your R500 query fee?

          • Gideon Venter

            No, perhaps that’s where I erred… They were legitimate questions and everything.

          • Sir Rants A Lot Llew. Jelly!!!

            You’re kidding right? Seriously banned? As in you can’t view the facebook webpage anymore?

            Why the heck would they then have a public domain page????

          • Gideon Venter

            I can view the page, but all my comments were removed and I cannot comment anymore.

  • TiMsTeR1033

    I want a Msi Gx 70!!

  • Sir Rants A Lot Llew. Jelly!!!

    Man, I sometimes wish I was that good at gaming… O h well. Good luck to all the teams!

    • Ottokie

      This year is my first year in DGL for Hearthstone (later this year for winter league) but now I really wish I had a 5 man team for DOTA because those prizes are awesome!

  • General JJ the annihilator

    Recommended for CRYSIS 3!
    Crysis 3 not recommended though.

    • Her Highness the Hipster

      but can it play CRYSIS?

      • General JJ the annihilator

        Haha. That would be a real bummer if it doesn’t.

  • Tarisma

    But He Who Must Not Be Named says the DGL is doomed to fail and a farce?

    • Spathi

      Fucking Sauron!
