South African Esports Results Wrap | 28 September 2020
There was plenty of local esports action this weekend. While the VS Gaming Masters for CS:GO was the largest in terms of prize pool, there was plenty of other titles and competitions happening around South Africa. Fortnite got a hefty run, and there was also the Red Bull M.E.O. amongst other things.
The September’s Mythic Royale final was held on Saturday. Some of South Africa’s best Fortnite trios competed for their share of the R8,000 up for grabs. The action was streamed live by ACGL using the game’s spectator tool, which offers viewers a more complete experience than the traditional player view.
