The Minnesota RØKKR enter Rocket League, acquiring the Rat Enterprises roster and Spacestation Gaming's AxB.
The Minnesota RØKKR have acquired Jesus 'Gimmick' Parra and Kyle 'Torment' Storer of Rat Enterprises, alongside Alexandre 'AxB' Bellemare from Spacestation Gaming, ahead of the Rocket League Championship Series (RLCS) Season X transfer lock-in deadline. The team have signed up for RLCS X under the team name 'Version1'
The RØKKR are a Call of Duty League team owned by WISE ventures, funded by the Wilf family, who are also owners of the NFL side Minnesota Vikings. After being founded on July 1st, 2019, the Minnesota RØKKR will add the Rocket League roster as their second esports team.
Gimmick and Torment will join the Rokkr after their departure from Cloud9, bringing Fireburner over as coach, who continued with the pair at Rat Enterprises as they endured many trialists for their third man.
Coming in from Spacestation gaming, AxB, has also been announced to be their official third member going into RLCS X, as they look to improve on the disappointing form of the off-season in the Fall Split.
AxB's departure opens up scope for Retals to fill his void, as he looks to move from Pittsburgh Knights in a frenzy of roster moves.
Version1 will kick off their debut in the RLCS X on August 15th, as every RLCS team (except G2) look to show off their new rosters after making changes this summer.
