Absa Gaming Festival Streamer Event details

The point of Absa Gaming Festival Streamer Event featuring Apex Legends is to celebrate local streamers and players. The good news is that you don’t have to be a Twitch streamer to get a chance to compete. Instead, 30 invited streamers will be the team captains, who will be allocated with two teammates to compete in this Trios tournament.

Local Apex Legends players can apply to be one of the 60 players drafted into the Absa Gaming Festival Apex Legends Streamer Event. Applications close on Tuesday, 3 May at 11:00 SAST, so apply right now! Successful applicants will be randomly drafted into a team and get an email with all the details.

In the announcement, ACGL explains the structure and schedule of this event: “The first 20 trios will jump into battle on Friday 6 May at 19h00. The top ten will secure a place in the final on 20 May, while the remaining ten will get a second bite of the apple in qualifier two on 13 May. By 20 May, only 20 trios will be ready to compete for the R20,000 cash up for grabs.”

  • 1st place – R10,000
