Telkom DGL rAge 2016

rAge 2016: who got their share of R1m for Telkom DGL?

This past weekend saw the Masters Final of Telkom DGL (Digital Gaming League) take place at rAge 2016, as top players slugged it out in Dota 2 and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO).

The event had a total prize pool of R1-million, so who hit the jackpot then?

In Dota 2, White Rabbit Gaming claimed the R200 000 top prize after beating Bravado Gaming in the finals. But Bravado didn’t walk away empty handed here, netting a second place prize of R90 000.

In CS:GO, Bravado Gaming went one better and earned the R200 000 winner’s prize, beating CarboN eSports (who earned R90 000 for their efforts).

“We have been involved with gaming for over 10 years and we are committed to seeing the industry grow and develop. This is just the beginning of Telkom’s involvement in this space. The DGL will continue to evolve to offer more opportunities and packages for all gamers from casual to competitive.”
