Meet the LAN team

Posted on

The LAN championships is upon us and we thought why not take this opportunity to introduce the LAN team!

Introducing the head administrator

Renier “Sabrefox” van Rooyen

Most competitive players will know Sabrefox pretty well, from his crazy LAN plays to his live streams and reviews. If there is one person that will not take any nonsense from anyone, be fair to every letter of the rules and carries a vast knowledge of both our championship titles, this is the first person we thought of. We are happy to introduce Sabrefox as our head admin for the championships.  Below is a Q&A with him.

How long have you been involved with competitive gaming?
I’ve been part of competitive gaming for about 10+ years and fully giving my attention to it after matric in 2012.

Dota was my go to relaxing game when I wanted to blow off some steam or take a break from my main games. Where I would say I have about 5 months worth of competitive time.
