    Read More

    It was around one month ago when Zambia's Mr. 5000 took the crown in our first season for Mortal Kombat 11. The victory secured him a cool R15,000 cash and a spot at the $16,000 Celtic Throwdown event. That battle in Ireland looms for the African (k)ombatant this coming weekend. We figured it was therfore a pretty good time to catch up with him and find out about he feels  about heading over, and how he has been preparing. 

    In his path stands over 100 fighters, including one of the current top fighters in the world, Dominique McLean, better known as SonicFox. Celtic Throwdown runs 31 August and 1 September.

  • Debonairs Pizza Series | September details
    Read More

    Since the start of the Debonairs Pizza series in March, we've been looking to keep things as fresh as possible every few months. For September we're changing things up again with a number of qualifying rounds in the first part of the month leading to the final week with a bigger prize pool.

    Fear not however, as there will be a few single night cups offering a prize pool too, but most roads will lead to week four of September. We are also conscious of the fact that September features two major expos in Comic Con and rAge, so we will not be hosting crucial qualifiers during that week.
