Things are heating up in the Injustice 2 SA Cup with the top 16 still not decided after heat two completed this past weekend.
The double elimination bracket saw a slightly different top four to that of heat one. There were some returning players in ZeeTheJanitor and sho_kahn to complement the new entries to the top four in illidanRA and Smokevengeance, but heat two showed that it’s not likely to be over until heat four on 18 June.
Sho_kahn improved on his second place from heat one, while ZeeTheJanitor grabbed a third place following heat one’s top spot. The two players look pretty secure in the leaderboard, but there’s still enough opportunity for even newcomers to make the top 16 with a few good placings in heat three and four.

All this virtual fighting is for the 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.
