2014 Telkom DGL Winter Registrations Close Off



The registrations for the 2014 Telkom Do Gaming League (DGL) Winter Leg have now closed as we see teams from all over the country start to take part in the final leg of the year.

The teams and players registered will be taking part in weekly matches against different opponents in their scheduled games for the most part of the next month. The Winter Leg will kick off on 19 May and will end on 13 July. After the Winter Leg has come to a close, the teams and players who qualify, will head into the Winter Playoffs to decide potential placements and seedings for the Do Gaming Championships as well as the Summer Leg for the 2015 season.

Championships Titles

Dota 2 leads the way once again in the Winter Leg and saw 224 teams sign up for the Winter Leg competition. League of Legends comes in second with 69 teams registered for the Winter Leg. Counter-Strike: Global Offensive becomes the leader of the FPS titles with 50 teams signed up for this leg with both Call of Duty: Ghosts and Battlefield 4 in the 40’s. Gran Turismo 6 sees a similar number of entries, some of whom retired after the Summer Leg and a few more who joined up during the break.

Tournaments and Leagues

Call of Duty: Black Ops didn’t do too well in the Winter Leg and could only achieve half the registrations of Call of Duty: Ghosts in this leg. It’s understandable since Ghosts will be a Championship title, that maybe players would want to move on to the more popular title towards the end of the year. The FIFA 14 registrations were all around the same with PC once again ruling the roost followed by PlayStation 3 and then Xbox 360. Hearthstone once again topped the single player competition with 185 entries for the Winter Leg. Both StarCraft and Quake Live boast similar numbers when compared to the Summer Leg while Mortal Kombat and osu! received less entries than before.

Titles to Watch

With the final part of the year quickly approaching and the Do Gaming Championships just around the corner, eyes will be on many of the Championship Titles as we look to a bunch of potential new winners this year.

Dota 2 has been sponsored by both ASUS and SteelSeries for the 2014 season due to the huge support the game has garnered from the community. ASUS will be sponsoring over R110,000 in hardware prizes while SteelSeries is giving away R50,000 in cash and hardware to the Championships.

Razer has come to South African gaming again this year by putting R40,000 in hardware to both the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO) and League of Legends (LoL) Championships for the 2014 season. Both games are of huge interest to the community as the LoL DGL grows year on year and CS:GO seems to be turning into the community’s chosen FPS game.

The Battlefield 4 DGL has fewer teams but more players as each team is required to field at least eight gamers. MSI is taking control of the Battlefield this year and will be giving away over R150,000 in hardware prizes at the Championships this year.

On top of the support from many different brands and sponsors, Telkom will also be doing its part in the Championships this year by sponsoring many other titles that will be a part of the Do Gaming Championships. Whether the Championships are on LAN or on-line, it’s going to be a really exciting close to the year.
