ESL African Championship: Week #2
Read the most important news of the second matchweek here!

Matchweek #2

 

CS:GO - South Africa

 

The above rankings contain results from the first part of matchweek #3 as well.

 

The second matchweek didn’t bring any noticeable changes to the current rankings of the league, as most of the top finishers from the previous season did keep on their winning streak. Energy eSports, Bravado Gaming and Big 5 eSports didn’t shed a drop of sweat as they all got clear and fast wins against their opponents. Compared to the first week where there were no draws, this EXDEE broke the glass by snatching inferno out of the hands of Damage Control. This much needed win for EXDEE wasn’t enough though to keep Azterix in the squad as this was the last game of the player with the team.

Despite coming into the league as favorites, Flipsid3 Africa succumbed to another loss, this time against Energy eSports. Will Flipsid3 manage to surpass this losing streak and stand up to their name?

CS:GO - North Africa

 

The above rankings contain results from the first part of matchweek #3 as well.

 

When compared to the South African group, the North African counterpart features a bit of rankings shuffling. Tunisia with Love’s chahdonj substitution with Audivision proved to be a decent choice as they managed to get a much needed victory against fractals by beating them in both cache and inferno. LimitlessGG kept on their winning streak by scoring two extremely fast wins against drinkpizza in overpass and inferno, while VIBORA kicked No Relation Team to the 5th spot of the ladder.

Hearthstone

 

 

The Hearthstone rankings follow the same motif as last week, as both sythe and henrilys still remain undefeated and occupy the top spots of the ladder. We still have road to cover in order to say for sure who will eventually get to the top but as it stands right now, sythe is looking very strong while xspiritsama despite coming in as a strong contestant, is struggling to climb the ladder.
