WELCOME TO THE ACGL SITE RELAUNCH

Today we’re pretty pleased to announce that the (New! Improved!) ACGL tournament site is available to users after a few days of hard work by our development team.

The updated site features a number of community requested features and fixes, as well as updates that we felt were crucial to our future plans.

The updated site is more responsive and more compatible with all internet browsers.

The homepage is now more informative and highlighted tournaments and content is now there and accessible. Player and team profile management is now cleaner and simpler and tournament score submission by users is supported.

We will be hosting a number of tournaments that were originally scheduled as part of our truncated season one to see you all into season two. We have decided to add some Rocket League to the mix because who doesn’t love a little soccer in their car?

Book the following dates in your calendar now for the following tournament action:

  • 20 April: Halo 5 2v2 (Xbox)
  • 23 April: CoD Infinite Warfare 4v4 (PS4)
  • 25 April: Rocket League 2v2 (PS4 & PC)
  • 26 April: Overwatch 1v1 (PS4, Xbox & PC)
  • 27 April: FIFA 17 1v1 (PS4)
  • 27 April: CoD Infinite Warfare 2v2 (PS4)
  • 29 April: Rocket League 3v3 (PS4 & PC)
  • 29 April: For Honor 1v1 (Xbox & PC)
  • 30 April: Halo 5 4v4 (Xbox)
  • 30 April: CoD Infinite Warfare 4v4 (PS4)

To celebrate the site relaunch, we have a giveaway too, and users can head here to get their entries in for a chance to win a headset.

We also have a number of announcements and additional features coming, so stay tuned as we continue with our efforts and developments in South African esports and gaming.

PRESS RELEASE

THE UPDATED ACGL TOURNAMENT SITE IS NOW LIVE

Tournament scheduling now returns to ‘normal’

South Africa, 18th April 2017 – Thanks to the feedback of tournament participants and community members, as well as our drive to constantly improve user satisfaction, a number of updates have now been implemented on our tournament site.

Improvements to the site include a more responsive design and better compatibility with all internet browsers. Users will now find the management of their profiles, teams and clans simpler. Features such as joining and leaving teams are now much clearer and easier.

The homepage now offers more information and content, as well as simpler navigation to current and featured tournaments. For tournaments, users can now submit their match scores directly on the site. Communication between competing teams and players can now be done on each other’s profile page.

With the site relaunch we will operate a number of tournaments across multiple titles and platforms including the addition of Rocket League. These will continue until 30 April as we prepare for the start of season two in our rolling tournament series. We are also celebrating our relaunch with a giveaway that will go to one of our supporters.

The upcoming tournaments are:

  • 20 April: Halo 5 2v2 (Xbox)
  • 23 April: CoD Infinite Warfare 4v4 (PS4)

Over the coming weeks we still have a number of exciting announcements as well as the addition of some more features to the site. We will be introducing leagues, an app, an extensive content plan and a more.

We will continue to work on site and operational improvements, and should users have any suggestions we are open to hear them. Should the local community have requests for titles to be hosted, you are welcome to make contact and we will certainly consider it.

Please note that while testing was done before the site went live, there is likely to still be some bugs and we would appreciate feedback from users so that we can attend to them as quickly as possible.

    Love it guys, I’ve been waiting for this update for a while and it superseded expectations!

  • Question about the upcoming Rocket League tournament: Can Xbox players enter the PC tournament? Considering Rocket League is cross-plat between Xbox/PC.

  • Holden ZA

    It is a PS & PS4 tournament. As there are PlayStation 4 competitors, we cannot allow Xbox One players to participate.
    We will look into holding a Xbox One only tournament to see what the reception is like.

  • That’s a shame. I’m not optimistic about the Xbox numbers.
