DGL Registrations Close This Weekend

Gamers interested in competing in the 2013 Telkom Do Gaming League (DGL) Winter Leg will need to make sure they register before the cut-off date on 19 May.

This means that gamers who want to compete in one of the several games that the DGL offers will need to make sure they meet all the requirements for their chosen game before this Sunday. The Summer Leg of the 2013 DGL saw some huge numbers between games like Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, Dota 2, League of Legends and Battlefield 3. We are hoping to see even more numbers for the second leg as we head towards the Do Gaming Championships (DGC) to be hosted nearer the end of the year.

At the time of writing, Dota 2 has shown similar growth in the same way it did for the Summer Leg. With just less than a week to go for registrations, there are already 77 teams registered. The Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 Winter Leg is also looking strong so far with 68 teams thus far registered. It shows the popularity of both games, as they were and still are the most popular since becoming part of the DGL. League of Legends (LoL) is currently sitting on 53 teams, down a little bit from the Summer Leg, but still some time to go for teams to finalise registration while Battlefield 3 currently sits on 31 teams.

With some time to go, there is hope that the Winter Leg will show the largest participation in the history of the DGL as well as in South African eSports. As history has proven though, many teams register on the final day of registration.


Players who participated in the Summer Leg of the DGL will still need to register for the Winter Leg. Whether you placed first in the Premier Division or last in the Second Division, players must register to confirm their continued participation in the DGL. Obviously the seeds for teams and players will be carried over if participation is confirmed.

Players are also advised to keep their eyes on the rules for their specific game as things are likely to change from leg to leg and, to date, there have already been a number of Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 changes as well as minor changes to Dota 2, Battlefield 3 and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO).
