Our sponsors had this to say about the Overwatch Festival:

“MWEB GameZone is excited to be part of the Overwatch Festival with ACGL. We are positive that this event will contribute to growing the Overwatch and gaming community, in South Africa. We look forward to more Overwatch events, like this, in the near future” – Derrick Kaylor Product Manager of New Services at MWEB GameZone.

“eSport in South Africa is hungry for development in all genres. The 1v1 and 3v3 concept in Overwatch helps involve those players not yet part of a full team and gives them a taste of the competitive field in South Africa. With this in mind, we felt it was a great concept to get involved with alongside ACGL again and in an active tournament that has a fresh and new dynamic for the community.” – SteelSeries and KontrolFreek Brand Manager for Megarom Interactive.

Tournament Details

All tournaments are FREE to enter, and each will have an XP reward for participating players.

How XP works:

XP is assigned to each tournament on ACGL. Once a tournament has concluded, XP is rewarded to each participating member, based on their placement in the tournament.

The higher you place in the tournament, the more XP you will be awarded.

Earning XP will allow you to move up the ACGL leaderboards. XP is assigned on a per title basis.

At the end of the event, we will reward the top 3 players from each respective title with some prizes for their effort.
