ACGL have recently announced the addition of Tekken 7 and Dota 2 (1v1) tournaments. These are standalone tournaments for each title per day, where players can win up to R1,200 in cash per tournament.

 

Entry will cost R50 per player per day. There is a 32-player cap per day, with a minimum of 16 players required per tournament to proceed.
