Competitive esports in South Africa has been around for a while, but only now is it just starting to take off, with at least four separate tournaments offering prize money in the millions to best players around. But, as is often the case, the current generation are indebted to those who came before, and one of those names is Barry "Anthrax" Louzada. During his tenure as a competitive gamer, Anthrax held South African national colours multiple times and garnered a reputation as one of the country's best gamers both locally and internationally.
His experience as a player at the highest levels has him in good standing for his next major challenge as part of the MettleState team, a multi-gaming and esports organisation that is bringing state of the art production values to esports tournaments in an effort to bring greater professionalism to every aspect of South African competitive gaming.
