SA’s StarCraft II monthly tournament overlords Polafluke have teamed up with SA’s biggest gaming magazine, NAG, to launch the NGL StarCraft II Online League 2012.
Polarfluke will run the tournament, and once again, Activision Blizzard distributor Megarom will be sponsoring the league.
Registrations for the league open today, and will close on 22 March. The first leg will then kick off on 23 March, 2012.
The league will consist of 3 legs which will then lead up to a Grand Final event that will be held at rAge.
Polarfluke has built a solid reputation in the local competitive gaming community, having been successfully running monthly StarCraft II tournaments since May 2010.
Polarfluke is also affiliated with Mind Sports South Africa, so anyone signed up with Polarfluke is eligible to compete in School, Provincial and National qualifiers that may ultimately allow them to represent South Africa in eSports tournaments.
- 23 February – 22 March: Registrations for Leg 1
- 23 March – 03 May: Leg 1
- 03 May – 17 May: Registrations for Leg 2
- 18 May – 28 June: Leg 2
- 28 June – 12 July: Registrations for Leg 3

DoGaming is also hosting its own StarCraft II league in 2012, and recently confirmed that Logitech will be sponsoring a cash prize pool of R50,000.
The DoGaming Championship finals are expected to be held at Rage in 2012, as has become customary in most recent years.
However, with NAG’s own league finals confirmed to take place at the event, it remains to be seen whether two StarCraft II league final tournaments will be viable over the same weekend.
Prizes have yet to be confirmed for the NGL StarCraft II league; watch this space for more details as they become available. In the meantime, players can head on over to Polarfluke.co.za to register.
