#SPONSORED A few weeks ago, Chani_ZA told you a little bit about RUSH. A new Esports event that is being organised by the same folks who bring you rAge every year (i.e. they know what they're doing and it won't be sh*t). The idea is simple: a giant celebration of South African Esports under one roof and powered by HP Omen. That's the abridged version on…

We've reached that time of the year where the new Call of Duty title, Call of Duty WWII, has…
Now that you've been introduced to the scene, I think it's about time I shine a little light on the South African Call of Duty community itself: #CoDZA is one of the smaller Esports communities in comparison to some of the other titles in South Africa. That doesn't mean they aren't making any waves online. #CoDZA took to Twitter last week with #AfricaForCoDChamps. A hashtag that…
