Local Medal of Honor: Warfighter local servers launched

Do Gaming and MWEB have launched some local servers for this game, whether it’s a good game or a pile of trash, only time will tell, The success of the game as an eSport title is completely dependant on what the local community thinks. (Must resist starting inflammatory debate!)

Ready.Set.GO! Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Cup

The DGL Ready.Set.GO! cup has gone through the group stage motions and jiggled the cream of the crop to the top. 39 teams are competing, which is a massive number of teams for a CS title. This could mean that CS”GO has a future in our eSports community after all. Among the many, many new teams, we’re seeing some old names too. These include Bravado and Damage Control. Because I was way too lazy too type out the results, I totally print screened the results log. Have a look-see.
