The MWEB Western Cape eSports Championships was held on 22 & 23 August 2015. The championships count as part of the process for qualifying for the MSSA’s National Team Trials for all disciplines.
Oakhill’s Dota2 teams, Oak$ and Mr Project, travelled all the way from Knysna to Fairmont High School in Durbanville, Cape Town, to participate in the championships. They played 5 rounds of matches on Sunday, 23 August. Each match lasts no longer than one hour.
To earn Provincial eSports Colours, a team has to finish in the top half of the MWeb National Intershool League as well as any Provincial Championship. By placing in the top three at a Provincial Championship, they also qualify to participate in the National Championship.
Both teams played exceptionally well. They were up against some stiff competition, but had a great time showing their steel against the other teams.
Team Oak$ (Liam Botha, Raphael Ceillier, Todd Walker, Jody Van Der Byl, captained by Jeremy Adams) earned their Western Cape Provincial High School Colours by placing second overall in the championship.
Medals were also awarded to the top teams who did not make it to the top three overall. Team Mr Project (Joshua Nel, Nathan Austin, Luc Van Den Handel, Branden Van Staden, captained by Liam Watson) placed second in this category.
Well done to both teams!
