F3SA is looking to align its strategy with that of its North American parent organization, FlipSid3 Tactics, and pursue new opportunities above and beyond the local competitive scene.
The result of this new venture means that the organization will no longer be able to commit to the planned DGL Masters calendar.
It is for this reason FlipSid3’s CSGO and Dota 2 Masters teams, who both finished seventh (7th) in their respective divisions, will forfeit their league spots in the 2017 DGL Masters and the upcoming Community Shield qualifier.
“F3SA (FlipSid3 Tactics South Africa) wishes to thank the DGL, its staff and management, for the opportunity to compete against the best in the country,” says owner Anthony ‘SkyChief’ Nell.
“The run over the last 12 months has seen many hours of hard work and great success for everyone involved.
We regretfully pass on our place in favour of working more closely with F3 and their partners right here in Africa. Good luck to everyone remaining”
Since the competition’s inception back in January 2016, FlipSid3 Tactics South Africa has played a pivotal role in the success and growth of the DGL Masters program.
FlipSid3 was one of eight MGOs selected to compete in the inaugural season of the DGL Masters, a competition designed to nurture and promote local talent by providing a superior competitive platform with increased spectator access and awareness.
DGL Management is sad to see FlipSid3 go but at the same time is delighted to see one of our own local teams, that came through the Masters program, aligning with their International holding company in the hopes of achieving International success.
FlipSid3 Tactics South Africa delivered thrilling matchups and helped shaped some of South Africa’s top up-and-coming talent on route to a fourth-place finish at last October’s Grand Final.
We wish them the best of luck for the rest of 2017!
