Fortnite Mythic Royale 3 announced – R15,000 prize pool & more to come in 2021

Attention local Fortnite players, the wait is finally over. South African tournament organizer African Cyber Gaming League (ACGL) has announced Mythic Royale 3, and alongside the big tournament running through March and April 2021, have shared some additional plans which sound fantastic for the Fortnite ZA community.

First off, there’s a new sponsor joining in for Mythic Royale 3, namely AMD. AMD joins the core sponsors for 2020: MSI, Redragon, and Crucial. This means that for the rest of 2021, South African Fortnite players will have several opportunities to compete for both products and cash via ACGL.

The CEO of Syntech, Craig Nowitz, explains: “With AMD onboard alongside Crucial, MSI, and Redragon, the latest season of the #MythicRoyale will support and reward the local Fortnite community with not only essential
peripherals, but the most advanced components for an incredible gaming experience.”

ACGL is also mixing things up a bit from the 2020 format. There will be a two-month tournament cycle in 2021, which will feature a main cash event and more. Sounds great right? Now, let’s get to Mythic Royale 3, which will be running through March and April 2021 as the first big tournament.

Furthermore, Fortnite matchfinders will also offer incentives in the form of products from the sponsors. Prizes will be awarded to the monthly leaderboard winner, the player who competed in the most matches, and also a random draw winner. These prizes (for March) will include SSD, RAM, PC coolers and more.
