In a fierce battle of agility and FPS tactics, Twee Katte were crowned the Red Bull Flick South African national champions after an intense match with Team Destiny.
The top 8 teams went head-to-head in the national final event over several matches which saw Twee Katte reign victorious. The event was livestreamed on Twitch to a global audience to see South Africa’s best CS:GO players compete for the title. Team Destiny and The Overlooked placed second and third respectively in the tournament. Twee Katte walked away with two Acer Predator XB241 gaming monitors and title of Red Bull Flick South African champions.
Red Bull Flick was played in a unique 2v2 CS:GO ‘hold-the-flag’ format across five unique maps created by Red Bull HQ. With over 200 players participating, the gameplay created a unique environment for different style and tactics highlighting teamwork and strategy. Matches were a best-of-five, with each round lasting at most two minutes. Teams won a round by securing and holding the flag area for 45 seconds or by having less time remaining than the opponent when the clock expired.
Black Poison from Twee Katte was exhilarated for his team’s win. “It was a really sick event. The 2v2 concept is really great and it really tested our skills. Thanks to everyone involved in hosting the event.”
Director of Big Esports, CS:GO manager at Goliath Gaming and commentator of the competition, Thulani Sishi said: “It’s so inspiring to see so many young and upcoming gamers take part in the competition. South Africa has so much untapped potential and opportunity waiting for gamers who want to pursue a professional career in gaming. Competitions like Red Bull Flick give these players a platform to kickstart their career.”
