PWR And Evil Geniuses Enter RLCS As Rocket League Rolls Out 34 Esports Decals
Two more huge organisations have joined a catalogue of teams entering Rocket League for the upcoming 2021-22 season, and have been gifted stunning personalised decals alongside 32 other top-calibre teams.
PWR, a predominantly Fortnite-based organisation owned by streamer Lachlan "Lachlan" Ross Power has joined the likes of FaZe Clan, Williams Resolve, Houston Outlaws, and Karmine Corp, by entering Rocket League for the first time this year, despite not yet unveiling their roster. Despite not yet unveiling their roster, Lachlan revealed that they will be entering the scene through their official Twitter account.
PWR will likely sign a team that will compete in the OCE region, with Lachlan himself, and a range of other competitors amongst their ranks, being from Australia.
Evil Geniuses have also re-emerged as a competitive Rocket League organisation, having previously been involved in the RLCS between Season 5 and 7. Their departure following a semi-final loss at DreamHack: Dallas 2019 did birth one of the greatest pick-up teams of all time, in Randy Gibbons' River Rats, although it's a nice touch to see them back. Much like PWR, Evil Geniuses have yet to reveal their roster for the upcoming season.
Having previously operated out of North America, it's unsure as to whether EG will pick up one of very few unsigned teams, or look over the pond to Europe. Evil Geniuses recently partnered with Wolves Esports, who boasted a European roster last season, and could potentially look to use their newly-found friendship to pick up Season 2 World Champion and former Wolves' player Francesco "kuxir97" Cinquemani, who recently announced his pick-up team Kuxir's Minions.
Psyonix have also unveiled 34 personalised decals for organisations in Rocket League esports, including teams from EU, NA, OCE, and SAM, all of which will come live in the esports shop on October 5. The shop will boast "home strips" for the selected orgs, with Dominus, Fennec, and Octane decals being available.
All 34 teams are expected to get "away strips" too, likely to be a reverse of their colour schemes, which can be used in RLCS, and sported by fans on standard playlists.
