A few weeks ago you'll remember I shared with you about the Valkyrie Challenge. Here's a quick recap for you: I think that, in order to grow South African Esports, we need to get more teams competing and competing well overseas. We need top 3 finishes. The gap between the top international teams and our local guys is huge. Unless one of the local players is…
#SPONSORED South African Esports is a funny beast. For the most part it is filled with drama and chaos which is probably why it is the most addictive and highly enthralling form of entertainment out there. RUSH Esports was the first event of its kind in South Africa - which paired up all our favourite Esports titles under one roof. Stands littered the Sandton Convention Centre…
