eSports Spotlight: Big Fat B*stards

For my inaugural eSports Spotlight I’ve chosen an eSports organisation very close to my heart. These gentlemen haven not only been a part of our local comp scene for many, many years but have huge determination to help better and grow South African competitive gaming.
