Bravado were the runner-up at the Call of Duty 4 DGL 2011 Championships. How will the MW3 Bravado team fare at the MW3 Champs?
This year Bravado Gaming showed its ability to top the standings overall, continuing their trend from Call of Duty 4, but things always change in a LAN environment and the competition is incredibly stiff. With such high stakes the pressure is mounting and this will no doubt be an excellent and intense event.
Overall, the Telkom DGL 2012 Championships have a prize pool worth a half-million rand, the largest prize pool in the history of the DGL, with games including Battlefield 3, Call of Duty 4, Starcraft 2, Gran Turismo 5 and FIFA 12 on both Xbox 360 and PS3, in addition to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.
Gamers who blog about the DGL at the Do Gaming community blog will also stand the chance of winning one in three Alienware X51 PC's.
The DGL 2012 Championships will be taking place at rAge 2012 at the Coca-Cola Dome in Northgate, Johannesburg.
