This is what you can win in the Do Gaming League

Poop dawg

Competitive video games. You’re in it for the challenge. The glory. The competition. But most importantly, for some sweet prizes. If you’re almost as brutally materialistic as I am, then you’re going to want to read further, because the upcoming Do Gaming League has just what you need to fill several voids in your life.

R1.30 million in prizes is up for grabs this year, which makes this the largest pool of prizes in SA gaming history according to Do Gaming.

First, a word/list from the sponsors who will be handing out prizes this year:

  • Megarom
  • Electronic Arts
  • CoolerMaster
  • SteelSeries
  • Razer
  • Monster
  • Logitech
  • Alienware
  • Telkom

So what prizes can you get for out-clicking the competition? Here’s another list, so stop bugging me:

  • 24 Alienware Aurora Gaming PCs
  • Gaming hardware
  • Peripherals
  • Cash prizes to the value of over R200 000

Battlefield 3 will be where the majority of the prizes end up. R370 000 worth of prizes, to be exact, due to the fact that there will be more teams and players present for that game. Call of Duty Black Ops 2, DOTA 2 and League of Legends will each have prize pools to the value of R250 000 in stuff.

Here’s some more lists then, to let you know what folks will be duking it out for:

    Awesome prizes! Obviously Telkom isn’t sponsoring bandwidth.

        I’m moving. What a damn headache. Telkom phones me yesterday with regards to my new number. My cell rings once and then I get a msg saying that they cannot get hold of me and I should call them at…..
        They clearly tried very hard to get hold of me.

      Shouldnt be, its always been a private event, unaffiliated with the MSSA.
      rAge is a NAG thing, the rAge LAN is just the venue for the DGL championships, the championships themselves are arranged by the DGL guys.
      you can expect the MSSA people to be there, but with no official position.

      Aside from that, I dont think the sponsors would care to put up with the MSSAs BS

    But Bravado, who are already sponsored by alienware, already has teams in all those events, favored to win/come 2nd in all of them, all already have alienware PCs and gear.

    Anyway, massive prizes, super stoked for the guys who are in the running for them.
