The following 12 candidates will be participating in the final round: Alan Miller; Andries Wahl; Danie Muller; Ezee Viljoen; Gideon Buys; Ilario Izaks; Jaco Hyman; John Berry; Maja Carstens; Pieter Kok; Talon Izaks and Tristan Loftie-Eaton
According to van Schalkwyk the top 3 teams for the qualifier round were EZK 25:17 in 1st place, with V-Fortis (2nd team) placing 2nd and V-Fortis (1st team) placing 3rd.
Regarding the procedures for the final event, van Schalkwyk said a total of 5 games will be played.
“The first 4 games’ teams have already been determined with the 5th game’s team being configured on the day after the first 4 games,” he added.
NESA President Flip de Bruyn said “I sincerely hope everyone enjoyed the qualifiers as much as we have, and we look forward to selecting our new Namibian CS:GO Esports Team,” while further acknowledging the sponsors that include Logitech G, Nanodog and Future CC for making the entire event possible.
