Search on for next national Esport team
This year the Namibian Electronic Sports Association (NESA) will be hosting national qualifiers for six game titles, all selected by the International Esports Federation (IESF) for the 2022 World Esports Championship (WE Championship).
What makes this year more sensational than the previous years? For the first time, mobile games are involved!
Once again powered by Logitech, NESA starts the search for the next Namibian Esports team, to compete in the African Regional Games for a chance to wear the Namibian colours in Bali, Indonesia, at the WE Championships in November/December.
The selected PC titles are Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO) and DotA2, both of which are played in teams of five. For console, specifically PlayStation, the titles are Tekken 7 and eFootball 2022, which are played solo by athletes. Finally, the mobile titles are Mobile Legends: Bang Bang (MLBB), played in teams of five, and PUBG Mobile, played in teams of four.
NESA is especially looking for female CS:GO athletes, as the WE Championship will feature the first CS:GO tournament this year.
The first qualifier tournament is on 7 May, with CS:GO, DotA2 and MLBB set to take place online over the next two months. Tekken 7 and eFootball 2022 will both run as physical tournaments on two days – 7 May and 4 June. PUBG will also be online, running on two days of which the first round is on 14 May and the second round on 11 June.
