Another weekend of local esports action unfolded, even with the ever present load-shedding trying its best to fully derail things. Today we wrap up the winners – from the tournaments we know of – and what they secured for their effort.

Call of Duty Community Clash

ACGL‘s Modern Warfare league drew to a close over the weekend, with the final teams in the Premier Cup playing for their share of R10,000. This year’s most consistent console Call of Duty team – Astra Infinite – secured the win and R5,000 in cash with a comprehensive 3-0 series win on Saturday night.

 

You can watch the video-on-demand of the final matches in the playoffs on the ACGL YouTube channel.

 

  • 1st Place: Astra Infinite[R5,000]
  • 2nd Place: Phoenix Esports [R2,500]
  • 3rd Place: White Rabbit Gamng [R1,500]
#GOWZA Pink Tournament

The Pink Tournament series kicked off a few weeks ago and drew to a conclusion this weekend on the ACGL site. On the line was around R50,000 in products split across the console cup and crossplay cup.

 

The aim of the tournament series was to address increasing toxicity towards female gamers, and was brought to life by the GOWZA Facebook Group, caster Wootdini and the ACGL team.

 

The top teams after a grueling series of double elimination brackets were:

 

 

Console

  • 1st Place: Astra Infinite
  • 2nd Place: Ons drib toxic ouens
  • 3rd Place: Convex

Crossplay

  • 1st Place: OGC Premier
  • 2nd Place: Equality Enforcers
  • 3rd Place: RE ACCE Black Jacks
Mettlestate Leagues

Mettlestate and ASUS had three cups scheduled for this past weekend, all featuring a cash prize pool. As always, South Africa’s enemy, load-shedding, had the final say on matters with both of Saturday’s cups being cancelled (Warzone and Magic The Gathering). The F1 2020 cup appears to have gone ahead on Sunday, but the standings have not been updated at the time of writing.

ATK Overwatch

The ATK Overwatch finals were scheduled for this weekend, but… you guessed it… load-shedding determined otherwise. The matches have been rescheduled for this coming weekend.

Mythic Royale

The first qualifier in September’s Mythic Royale for Fortnite was held this past Saturday. The over 30 trios competed for a spot in the R8,000 finale scheduled for later this month. The second direct qualifier is scheduled for Saturday 12 September. Fortnite trios can register via the ACGL site.

 

  • 1st Place: LivingL2
  • 2nd Place:聽Deathwish
  • 3rd Place: god trio
