Gale Force's win means more than just new champs. It suggests there's a shift happening at the sport's highest level.
Earlier this month, the ten best Rocket League teams from around the globe arrived at the MGM National Harbor Resort in Washington D.C. for the fourth Rocket League Championship Series World Championship (RLCS).
The sold-out crowd was electric as fan favorites from North America like G2 and Cloud 9 took the stage. For three days, fans in attendance and the millions watching via Twitch cheered for their favorite hopeful trio. At the end of Championship Sunday, Europe’s own Galeforce Esports took home the trophy for the first time. But the weekend was about more than just crowning a new champion. It suggested that there’s been a shift at the top of the “Rocket League” food chain.
It’s been two grueling days of Rocket League action at the RLCS at the MGM National Harbor in Washington D.C., and the matchups for Championship Sunday are set. Day one had its share of upsets and heartbreakers for NA hopefuls like G2, Cloud9 and NRG, but some of those teams bounced back in day two. Now the stage is set with a balanced bracket of EU and NA superstars.
