The Road to ComicCon 2022 Week 2
With two South African Rocket League teams (Orlando Pirates Exdee and Bravado Gaming) representing Sub-Saharan Africa at the RLCS 2021-22 World Championship in Fort Worth, U.S and one South African team (ATK) in action at the Rocket League Commonwealth eSport Championship tournament in Birmingham, England this weekend we can clearly see the growth of eSport in South Africa.
Last week we saw our own Rocket League A team qualify for the VS Gaming HSEL round of 16 with a 3-0 victory over Grantleigh College. The B and C team both also had victories. The B team won 3-0 against Herzlia High School and the B team won 3-0 against Hoërskool Eldoraigne. Both of these teams play their final match this week to qualify for the round of 16.
With some mixed results at Counter Strike: Global Offensive we see the A and B team play their last match this week to qualify for the semi-finals. The CS:GO A team lost 10-16 against Hoërskool Linden and the B team won against Maragon Mooikloof due to match forfeit.
In other titles and tournaments played at Paul Roos we see our Valorant team go down 3-13 against Clifton College. With week 1 of the Clash Royale tournament we see some good results by Jacus Nel 2nd and Ashton Arlow 3rd.
