Legion Africa Cup results

The Legion Africa Cup saw teams compete for their share of the $20,000 prize pool. At the current Dollar to Rand exchange rate, that’s just over R300,000. Teams from South Africa, Nigeria and Kenya competed in their tournament, and we are proud to say that local esports team Goliath Gaming managed to take second place.

During the play-offs stage, Goliath Gaming beat down ATK Academy with a clean 2-0 victory. On the other side of the bracket, NASR Esports defeated 15AVGGANG 2-0, setting up the best-of-five grand finals.

Unfortunately for Goliath Gaming, they couldn’t take a map off NASR Esports, losing 3-0 in the grand final. One of Goliath Gaming’s players, Triton, noted on Twitter that: “Had fun despite the unfortunate ping situation.” ATK Academy lost the best-of-one third-place decider match against 15AVGGANG.

Final standings and prizes:
  • 1st place – NASR Esports wins $12,000.
  • 2nd place – Goliath Gaming wins $5,000.
  • 3rd place – 15AVGGANG wins $3,000.

If you couldn’t watch the tournament live, then you are in luck. CS:GO esports fans can catch up on the final day of competition over on Power League Gaming’s YouTube channel, called PLG Buzz.

[Editor Note: The event was affected by a fair level of controversy. The tournament featured NASR Esports who did not comply with the regional restriction for the tournament. This was compounded by the South African team having to compete on 100+ ping.]
