The AEC ?
You may have heard of the AEC and wondered what is that? Let me explain it to you. The AFRICA ESPORTS CHAMPIONSHIP is a big tournament for the African region that will gather the best four teams in each region to compete for a cash prize of 4500$ USD, for the North African Countries we have Algeria , Libya , Morocco and Tunisia .
Each one of these countries organized a big tournament that gathered their best teams to know which one they will choose to represent them, It’s like a Spring split & Playoffs but with fewer games and teams. But that is not the point here because the qualification is already over and every country already knows which team will be represented by them.
Let’s talk about Morocco, one of the scariest country and skilled teams in the MENA region. We already saw the insane performance that Fox Gaming showed everyone at the Intel Arabian Cup so we can’t expect less from the region even if Fox Gaming didn’t participate. But thanks to the Moroccan Esports Association we got to have some new and experienced teams that will represent Morocco after playing many games in the qualification. Let me introduce you to the four teams!
We have the one and only The Black Lotus coming in strong in this first phase of the AEC, they won every single match and showed some great performance with their new 2021 roster. We also have Twareg Esports a new team that showed their face this year with great potential, the third team is ADC Weak Role they are also known in the Moroccan community and finally, we have NRaven Esports you may remember them at the IAC – Moroccan Qualifier where they finished 3rd best team in Morocco, A well known and experienced team that definitely deserves to be here.
For the Tunisian region, they have some interesting teams that will represent them and that probably everyone already knows about… Either their experience, history talks about them, or their recent achievements. First of all, let’s thank Hannibal Knights for the organization of the qualification of their region and show them some love. The same thing goes for the Libyan Esports Federation and Algerian association Gamers Magh.
Alright, let me introduce you to the teams that will represent Tunisia. We have with us SPL Gaming this team is just too experienced and known in the Tunisian community, we also have Team Majesty (Black & Gold) with their stacked and insane roster, they seem determined and serious about this tournament so you may be careful when facing them and finally Hannibal Knights.
For Libya we also have some surprises we have MFiA Black & Red with a strong roster, for the third team we have Akatsuki and for the last SNV. This region also have what It takes to be the winner and qualify so make sure to keep an eye on those teams because things can get messy.
Last region is Algeria, they still didn’t announce who is the last team that will be representing them but I can assure you that they will send some strong teams to bring back the victory back at home so stay tuned for now we only know Owl Esports, Legend Esports and of course the one and only OverMinds.
It’s coming real fast! Starting 29th we will enjoy ourselves with some quality casting and gameplay at this AEC. The next step is the regional qualifiers, this time all the regions will be facing each other 4 motivated and hungry teams in each region will be facing to prove that they are the best, for the regionals, there is no cash prize but no worries! Four teams will qualify to the continental Grand Finals and will get to fight for both their region and a total of 4500$ USD. Let’s not forget that our beloved Raiizow and Jelyfish will be casting all of this at Rawa TV so let’s make sure to support them.
