Underdogs put pressure on the big team – Rocket League

After two years of waiting, it’s time again for the professional Rocket League players to face each other in the autumn major tournament. There are many familiar faces on site, but also several new players who have come to the surface during the so-called online era. New regions have also had the chance to contribute with their own teams. Tokyo Verdy Esport is the Asian region’s first team to participate and Sandrock Gaming participates from the Middle East.

The two favorite ranked regions, Europe and North America, have had mixed success where they have definitely encountered opposition from the smaller regions’ participants that they did not count on. Endpoint, ranked number one in the EU, were beaten in their first match by the Australians in the Renegades and the crowd favorite G2 from North America was overtaken by the debutants in Sandrock Gaming.

The Swedish four-time world champion was once again in place in a lan tournament. “Turbupolsa” with its Team Envy is thus the only player with a home advantage when the tournament is played in Stockholm. After a shaky start, the Swede was finally able to pinch home the first match, but lost yesterday’s second match against Dignitas.

The tournament group games are based so that all teams face opponents who have the same results as each other. If you thus have more wins than losses after the group game, you go on to the playoffs this weekend. You will be able to follow the matches Rocket League’s e-sports channel on Twitch.
