League of Legends: Hoërskool Wonderboom takes charge.

Team Fuga Dracones (Hoërskool Wonderboom) at MSSA's 2017 Gauteng Championships.
Although it is only Hoërskool Wonderboom's first year of participating in official esports  events, the school esports team has brought to MSSA all the standards which the school espouses.

Under the astute direction of Andreas Smith, the school team has fought against the established status quo and has come out on top.

The school this year alone is currently ranked in third place in the official club ranking (which takes  all private, university, and school clubs into account), and the school's team Fuga Dracones has finished in the following positions:

The seeding points are worked out according to how well a team does against its opponents.

This  is the first time in MSSA's history that a school team has snatched the top position in the League of Legends game title.

However, it will be interesting to see if the school can hold onto its position with the VexxedPhoenix club having three teams on the heels of the young school team.

DotA 2: Sinister5 ranked #1 in the country.

The Edenvale based team, Sinister5, with their provincial colours.
With teams fervently getting ready for MSSA's 2017 National Team Trials to be held on 3 & 4 June 2017, MSSA is working hard to ensure that all the admin is up to date.

Thus the rankings are being generated as a result of MSSA's Online Provincial Championships which were held on 22 April 2017.

At such Online Provincial Championships, all were astounded by the improved standard of play as teams thrashed it out for first place.

However, none shone as much  as the Edenvale based club, Sinister5, which dominated the championship from start to finish.

It is thus without any surprise that Sinister5 is now the top ranked team in the country.

However, there is always someone working harder, sleeping less, and yapping on your heels...

That team seems to be the Durban based team from Northwood High School, which after just one tournament, has forced its way into being the team ranked as the second best team in the country.
