HiVe Open Premier Playoffs

Highly Interactive Virtual Entertainment opened their 2014 Telkom Do Gaming League (DGL) Ghosts PC Premier Playoffs with a crucial victory over Guerilla Tactics.

The two teams met on Monday, 7 April for the second time this season with HiVe|Ap3x 'Ghosts taking the double over their opponents with a 13-7 and 13-4 win.

The team continued their undefeated streak to find themselves top of an extremely difficult group and look favourites to at least finish in the top four, cementing their place in the Winter Leg’s top flight.

Next up, Ap3x will meet First Division rivals BoB cDc on Monday, 14 April before a difficult encounter rA`Ascension on later that same week.

BoB cDc finished just two points behind their opponents but will be looking to redeem themselves after a humbling defeat saw HiVe take consecutive 13-0 victories earlier in the Summer Leg.

“It was extremely important that we picked up a first win," says captain HiVe|Ap3x 'Ghosts Shelton ‘Gamer’ Deans.

“We really needed it to just boost our confidence ahead of both the Premier Playoffs and Liberty LAN. There is a huge possibility that we could qualify for the Winter Leg Premier Division while we also hope to keep our undefeated streak intact."

HiVe|Ap3x 'Ghosts will be hoping to take a comfortable lead at the top of the table come the end of week as they look to the CANSA Liberty LAN Easter Tournament at Emperors Palace.

Despite an impressive Summer Leg performance, the team remain underdogs heading into the competition but could cement their place as one of the countries elite teams with a good tournament run.

“For the moment, we are just enjoying playing as a solid team, promoting the business of HiVe and doing our best.” Deans added.
