MSSA 2017 BOO! Protea Esports Team is no exception having given it their all while facing extremely tough competition.
As usual, the standard of esports rises from year to year.
Therefore it is not an option to remain constant as to do so actually shows a decline in standard.
With every country pushing the envelope from a year-to-year basis, MSSA has had to continually up its game in order to produce better teams.
In 2016, South Africa slumped to be ranked 14th in the world from its 2015 ranking of 12th.
Through reviewing its systems and promoting an even greater degree of competitiveness, the teams representing South Africa have pushed South Africa back up to be ranked 12th in the world.
The improved rankings show the increased South African standard, and MSSA intends to build on its successes in 2017 to push further up the international rankings at IESF's 10th World Championships.
