How Did You Get Into eSports?

I played DOTA (WAR3) in high school with a bunch of mates. From there we decided to start a friendly DGL team called Box of Doom (BoD), and that’s where it started getting serious.

What Has Been Your Best eSports Moment To Date?

Hitting 5k MMR.

What Do You Hope To Achieve Through eSports?

The goal is to climb the MMR ranks and hit 6k MMR.

What Are Your Hopes For South African eSports?

For it to become internationally recognised and grow to a point where it is economically viable for young people to pursue a career in it.

I would have to say it’s probably Doni, just because of what he has achieved as a player. He is one of the few to have had a very successful eSports career.

What Is The One Thing You Would Change About eSports And Why?
