The Telkom Do Gaming League (DGL) 2013 Battlefield 3 Winter Leg is well underway as our Premier Division and First Division kicked off with their opening matches yesterday. With four more First Division matches to watch this week, Sunday evening is looking to be an extremely exciting time in the South African BF3 universe.
Our first matchup sees newcomers to the First Division |BFC| PubHeroes take on RFH Dark Sentinels. It is very interesting to note that since |BFC|PubHeroes started in Open Division during the Summer Leg they have yet to lose a game, winning all six of their games during the Summer Leg as well as all four of their games during the Breakthrough Playoffs, putting them on a ten win streak so far in the BF3 DGL this year.
This is also RFH Dark Sentinels first match as a First Division side after managing to catch a lucky break and be pulled up to First Division after the Summer Playoffs. Who do you think will win this matchup? Let us know in the poll.
Our second matchup is actually a slight grudge match, as first and third place teams from Group B of the Open Division in the Summer Leg now find themselves matching up again in their opening match of the Winter Leg. [NSD]Sons Of Chaos are currently 10 – 2 so far this year in the DGL, and have only lost to teams that are also in First Division for the Winter Leg.
One of their ten wins so far this year was to their opposing team in this weekend’s match, Gs.Deliverance, one of the few teams that were pulled up after the Summer Playoffs due to teams being disqualified and retiring. Gs.Deliverance also only has two losses this season, a number I’m sure they will want to keep low.
Who do you think has more fight? Is [NSD]Sons Of Chaos going to continue on their good streak so far this year, or are Gs.Deliverance hungry for revenge? Vote below and tell us what you think.
RFH Death Guard managed to finish in the middle of the pack after the Summer Leg was done, ensuring their First Division spot for the Winter Leg. With a higher placing definitely on their mind, they take on [dM]ReBirth to start off their BF3 Winter Leg run.
[dM]ReBirth didn’t actually manage to make the Playoffs thanks to a strong Group A in the Open Division during the Summer Leg, but has been given a second chance for the Winter Leg. We could potentially see an upset come out of [dM]ReBirth this weekend as they have nothing to lose. Who is going to march to victory? Let us know
DvGǂMisFiTs is currently on a roll so far this year, having not dropped a game so far in the 2013 DGL. With 12 wins under their belt, DvGǂMisFiTs is looking to be one of the hot favourites to take the First Division for the Winter Leg.
RoG~ZA~SABERTOOTH[XL] has not had such good luck, but after a solid fourth place finish in Group C for the Summer Leg and all three higher positions retiring before the start of the Winter Leg, now see themselves as one of the First Division contenders.
Are DvGǂMisFiTs going to continue on their hot streak, or do RoG~ZA~SABERTOOTH[XL] have an upset hidden up their sleeve? Let’s poll it out.
