miNt Gaming

As you may or may now know we here in the Lazygamer basement are currently sponsoring a local PC gaming team, miNt Gaming.

Over the coming months I will be trying to keep you more up to date as to what is going on in the professional PC gaming leagues locally and to see how miNt get on.

To start this off we have a posting from their website about the Counterstrike Do Gaming leagues that is being run by AGASA that they have entered.

Yesterday saw the announcement of the Do Gaming Online 2009 League Groups (Hosted by AGASA). Due to the awesome support received from the Counter-Strike Community the league has had to be split into two groups of 13 teams each.

Our very own miNt.CSS team has been placed in the tougher group B, with top teams such as last years Rage winners Bravado, Battle Lan champions Eternal Conflict and Pantheon Gaming (formerly Plasma), Last years AGASA league winners, however miNt welcomes the challenge. Group A sees the inclusion of a new look Ascent made up of two old Ascent players and some of the crew from the recently broken up Koncept. Group B is where your eyes should be kept as it is going to be a tough affair for the fight for first place while Group A looks likely to be dominated by Ascent.

Barely a day into the league and we have had the first casualty without any war. Darkness from Group A has retired from the tournament, however a replacement has been found in the form of HoA. We implore all teams who are participating to stay together for the length of the league as leg 2 will see teams seeded according to skill level. If a team does not stick together long enough they will never get good enough to compete and the players will be suspended from taking part in the AGASA leagues via transfer windows or the following legs for 3 months.

As they say nothing comes from nothing.

As I posted before, there is still some confusion in the local industry as to which organisation should be followed at the moment between AGASA and MSSA.

This is the first competitive league I have heard about this year so I guess the first blow goes to AGASA, if anyone from MSSA is listening I would love to hear about what plans you have for the year?
