The Absa Gaming Festival has seen duos drop, goals and loadshedding but the Fortnite and FIFA 22 tournaments are heading into their final phase starting this week.

The four online qualifiers saw over 900 registered players readying to compete. However, only four per qualifier could make the next round of action. The top 16 players in FIFA 22 will be kicking off the group stage of their playoffs this week, with the final eight facing off on 12 June. Players should ensure their group matches are completed in time for the final phase. The players will be competing for a share of the R20,000 cash on the line.

48 Fortnite duos will be dropping and thanking the bus driver from 13h00 this Saturday. After four gruelling qualifiers that saw a total of over 300 duos sign up for the limited slots, the final 48 will battle for the R20,000 cash up for grabs. You will be able to catch the action live on our YouTube channel.

The Apex Legends Streamer Series was the most affected by the loadshedding in recent weeks. After some discussions behind the scenes, the new format that aims to avoid the majority of loadshedding (as far as is possible given the circumastance) will be revealed later this week.
