Gamers who have participated in the Do Gaming League (DGL) all-year round can now register for the much anticipated DGL 2012 Championships, where over half a million Rand in cash and prizes is up for grabs. Registration is open for both teams / gamers who qualified and those who didn't, with the latter going on to a waiting list.
Gamers who register must make sure they can attend. Registering but not attending will result in penalties, says Rob 'Infy' Hart, DGL Tournament Director.
“Do Gaming goes to great lengths to support competitive gaming in South Africa by buying the DGL LAN tickets for you, so you don’t have to pay the R350 yourself. Teams who do not show up not only prevent another team from competing in their spot, but they also waste our investment. For that reason, we ask that you only register for the Do Gaming Championships once you are 100 percent sure you will attend,” he says.
The ticket gets gamers a seat into the DGL LAN area to participate and access to the rAge expo. Please note it is not a ticket to the NAG LAN, an event not run by Telkom Do Gaming.
