Featuring 1v1, 2v2 and 3v3 game modes all in the same series. It is set to not only be a treat, but also a change in pace for the Rocket League Scene
Not long after the conclusion of the European Spring Series, we now know the next big events to be hitting the Rocket League stage. Taking place over multiple weeks, the event will be separated into EU and NA sections, with each region having a total of $25,000 in prize money. South American and Middle Eastern teams are permitted to play in the NA and EU tournaments respectively.
The two days of qualifiers start in 10 days, with May 21 and 22 seeing teams compete for a spot in the main tournament. During the qualifier, which will contain 32 teams chosen by Johnnyboi_i and a “panel of experts”, each series will start off with a 3v3 game, followed by a 2v2 game, followed by a 1v1 game. Game four’s mode will be chosen by the losing team, with game five being chosen by the other team.
The tournament itself will see a different format being used, with single-elimination best-of-seven brackets being played out for 3v3, 2v2 and 1v1. Each region will have seven tournaments, being played out every day from May 25-31 (NA) and June 1-7 (EU). Teams who qualify are able to use any of their players for any of the matches and will be awarded points and prize money based on their position in the bracket:
- 1st: 17 points / $1,500
- 2nd: 11 points / $1000
- 3rd/4th: 7 points / $500
(Note: It is currently unclear whether each gamemode will have a tournament every day, or whether there will be one bracket per day. GGRecon has reached out to Johnnyboi_i for clarification)
At the end of the event, teams will be given the following prize money based on overall standings:
- 1st: $4,500
- 2nd: $3,000
- 3rd: $2,000
- 4th: $1,500
- 5th: $1,250
- 6th: $1,000
- 7th: $750
- 8th: $500
The event is set to be broadcast on Johnnyboi_i’s Twitch Channel, with the first qualifier taking place on May 21 at 5pm BST.
