Today, Warner Bros announced a massive Injustice 2 eSports tournament which will be running globally. The tournament will be run with a number of partners, including ESL, Gamelta, GameStop and Twitch. With a portion of $600 000 in prizes available this is quite easily one of the biggest events for the year, and will culminate in a massive finale with the players from the different regions taking each other on for the grand prize. The global competition starts on 26 May on Twitch (twitch.tv/netherrealm).
There’s even better news for us in South Africa, as Ster-Kinekor have announced that, in partnership with ACGL, we will be having our very own Injustice 2 Championship Series presented by Playstation 4!
That’s right, our very own Injustice 2 tournament will be happening right here so you best start brushing up on your combos, Joker laughs and laying the smack down!
The official details are as follows:
Those entering the championships will be playing for a share of R60 000 in cash, as well as gaming products and most importantly a spot in the VS Fighting Tournament to be held in Birmingham, England this August. That person’s trip will be paid in full where they will have the chance to take on champions from around the globe in a battle to see who the number one Injustice 2 player is.
In the build up to the championships there will be a number of qualifying rounds online where players will be able to earn XP and get their names on the leaderboard. The top four players on the leaderboard on the 25th of June 2017 will then head to the grand final in Gauteng on 8 July 2017 where the number 1 fighter will be declared at a major event, featuring live performances by Jack Parow and Fokofpolisiekar.
This tournament will be open to SA Citizens only and you’ll have to be over 18 to participate. If you fit the bill and what to take on the rest of South Africa make sure you head to https://acgl.co.za/I2CZA and sign-up right away! You do not want to miss out on this!

Sarcasm and irony are his greatest tools, sport, adventure and shooting all the fools. Platformers =admiration, horror games = contempt, plans to live forever or die in the attempt.
