You know that Rocket League as an esports title has arrived in South Africa when kids run to their favourite players to take photos with the real-life legends of the game they have become accustomed to seeing online. This is exactly what happened last month when the first LAN event of the calendar year for local Rocket League was held in Johannesburg, at the Nu Metro Gaming area in Emperor’s Palace.
Exdee Gaming were crowned the VS Gaming Rocket League Champions, at the recently held Comic Con Africa event in Johannesburg. In the process, captain Christian “mOTHER” Massyn became the first two-time winner of the LAN event, as well as the first person to win it back to back. In this interview we spoke to him and his two teammates, Gareth “Snowyy” Spiers and Sergio “NoClip” Frasca, their reserve player, Jacob “Kaska7” Robbertse, as well the owner of Exdee Gaming, Dewet “RidditZ” Lombard-Bovey, about their experience at the LAN.
