Version1 has got off to a rather loud start in the Rocket League Championship Series Spring Split Major, London, having gotten the better of two European dynamos in the opening two days. The Minnesota-based org, epitomised by their native up-and-comming superstar Robert "Comm" Kyser, has dismantled both Endpoint CeX and Moist Esports, booking their place at the Copper Box arena in front of their avid fans.

With the in-game antics from Version1 being highlighted on social media, their performances have spoken louder than their words, as they now sit just three wins away from being crowned Major Champions, the first of their organisation's Rocket League history.

Alongside Kyle "Torment" Storer and Landon "BeastMode" Kyser, the violescently-dripped Comm has his eyes on taking the crown for himself, pinched from the grasp of Europe's finest hosts. Ahead of their live games, we spoke to Comm about North America's tactical edge over Europe and the art of trash talking.

Comm and the Version1 team will now tackle another European giant in Karmine Corp on Saturday, as they look to dump the entire region to the lower bracket.
