First in Battle (FiB), a local Battlefield 3 team, will be competing as an official SA team in the international online ClanBase NationsCup XV. The MSSA hosted an online championship in January, where most of South Africa’s top BF3 teams competed.
“Clan FiB performed very well in the competition, winning all their rounds except one against Clan ASF. We’ve got a strong set of Battlefield 3 players in Team South Africa to represent us at the Nations Cup and we wish them the best of luck,” said Colin Webster, President of MSSA.
Twenty four countries have secured their spot in the competition, and have been split into four groups of six. South Africa are in Group C along with Australia, Belgium, Finland, Portugal and Russia, and will need to place in the top 3 of their group to make it through to the next stage of the comp. Team South Africa play their first match against Finland on Sunday 29 January at 9pm.
