Rage Gaming, one of the popular esports teams in Nigeria has qualified for Gamr X the third time in a row!

Rage Gaming was founded primarily as a Call Of Duty: Mobile team from a merger of two teams, Legion and Fury in May 2021 by Elvis Okoye “Life” and Somto Ugochukwu “Indahizze”.  The aim of the merger was to form a tier 2 team strong enough to compete against the best  teams in the African scene, and then become a Tier 1 African team.

Rage gaming rose to become the best Tier 2 team in 2021 and was voted Next rated team in the Sub-Saharan Africa CODM scene. 

The team achieved their aim of becoming a Tier 1 team in 2022 and gradually became a force to reckon with by winning its first prestigious title [Infinix Mobile masters LAN event].
