PunX Interactive Gaming was founded by Jacques Grundling (N8T3Mare) and Derrick Richards (Defzoo) in October 2019 with the launch of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare/Warzone. It started with just the PunX clan-tag, friends having fun and trying to build a community.
With the progressive Esports scene focus was moving more towards competitive gaming and in September 2020 PunX Interactive Gaming was officially registered as a (Pty) Ltd. With the launch of the Apex Legends ZA-Scrims our first players were signed and started competing for glory. Through dedication, discipline, and hard work our Apex Legends team has started concreting their name in South African competitive scene. We still hold the “unofficial record” for most kills and points in the ZA scrims – 27kills, 39 points in a single match.
Our Dota2 team was signed in January 2021 and immediately started conquering in the ZA Dota2 scene. We have been crowned the champions of Group-2 in the Shakey Invitational Dota2 tournament and advanced to the Shakey Grand Magus Dota2 Grand Finale in April 2021.
Player development will always be our priority. We strive to build and maintain a diverse community on all platforms and competitive titles. Assist in growing the South African E-sport scene is of utmost importance and crucial for establishing a youth academy for future stars. Building a brand is our dream. Crafting a brand into a “safe-haven” where a community can feel welcome and respected will be a legacy for future generations to enjoy.
“To be the best at something isn’t always achievable, but as long as one can compete is a step closer towards greatness”.
