Welcome to your weekly ACER Nitro ASL update. The last week of group stages approaches swiftly.

Last week saw we welcomed AR for the first time casting with Ulturism for the weekly Fortnite Customs. He brought a very nuanced overview of the meta and we look forward to having him again. Link to the VOD. The current standings for Fortnite are as follows (full standings):

Last week will be the last Fortnite matches for this split. It will consist of three rounds instead of the usual two.

Grey High School and Voortrekker High School faced off in Valorant. The game was casted by Skarra and featured Joel from GHS. Link to the VOD. We would like to see more broadcasts for games so if your school is interested please contact us so we can organise.

The Minecraft Build Battle sign ups are under-way so if your creativity levels are through  the roof this competition should prove to be a fantastic outlet! Teams of five players will create an assigned topic against another school in a set time frame. For more information check out the event page.

ACGL accompanied ACER to the Schoolscapes IT conference in Cape Town last week where we spoke to more schools about esports in education. We will also be in Schoolscapes Johannesburg on the 17th of August and Schoolscapes Durban on the 24th of August.

It was also a fun week with the book launch of Leo Jantjies and the Esports World Championship where we got to hear more about the book and play games.


I hope everyone is having a great short week.
