White Rabbit Gaming (WRG) is a South African eSports organization and currently fields players and teams in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and Dota 2.
White Rabbit Gaming was founded by Alwyn ‘SwiTch” Venter, in 2008, predominantly as a casual MMORPG (massively multiplayer online role-playing game) guild. Over time the player base grew to more than 100 members and with the launch of StarCraft 2 in 2010, the guild began to branch out into eSports.
In 2012, SwiTch partnered with close friend Martin “SwithiN” Beukes to develop a successful StarCraft division. As such, over the next year WRG engaged with numerous players and organizations, locally and internationally, in an effort to improve the competitive community in South Africa.
Success in individual competition saw WRG combine with Deviation Gaming in 2014, another highly successful clan, to establish a fully-fledged multi-gaming organization (MGO).
StarCraft veteran Rowan “ScaRy” Hammond was brought on as Director of eSports and WRG picked up teams in League of Legends and Battlefield 4, both of which finished top eight at the annual Telkom Digital Gaming Championships (DGC). WRG also field players in Hearthstone and Heroes of the Storm competitively.
In 2015 the MGO expanded into Dota 2, signing one of South Africa’s most celebrated teams, NewB, who finished runners up at the Telkom DGC, narrowly losing out to rivals Bravado Gaming.
– April 2016, WRG announced that Petrus “kr1os” Delport and Wayne “Craan” Smith would be leaving the MGO.
