This past Sunday saw entrants begin their battle in the Injustice 2 SA Cup (also known as #I2CZA on Twitter).
Up for grabs is a cash prize pool of R60,000 and a trip to the VS Fighting tournament in Birmingham happening in August. The distribution of the prizes will be decided when the SA Cup comes to an epic conclusion at the LAN Grand Finals which will feature musicians Jack Parow and Fokofpolisiekar.
Over a grueling double elimination bracket and some thrilling battles, the top four that were left standing included two players who placed in the previous weekend’s Warm Up Cup.
The tournament bracket for Heat One can be viewed here.
While the early leaderboard reflects the placings from heat one, there is still plenty of opportunity for players to secure a top 16 spot over the remaining three heats. The full list of remaining heats and their dates can be found below.
