Youngest Ever RLCS Spring Major Winners Discuss How They Did It

Rocking griddys on the main stage. Sporting shades to block out their stardom shine. Bringing an entire 7,000-strong crowd to a unanimous chorus of their names. Releasing the tears after being crowned MVP. It's true that Moist Esports simply knock around a pixelated ball on a free-to-play game, but let's be honest, it's so, so, so much more than that.  

The Copper Box is no stranger to Rocket League's best offerings. But while Season 5 hung on the individual moment of pure and refined brilliance, the Spring Major 2022 stood on its own two feet to eclipse the atmosphere and collectivity and produce the best spectacle the arena may have ever seen.

The script saw long-time records be smashed by both finalists: Team Falcons becoming the first minor-region Grand Finalists (on their first attempt, no less), proving that MENA should have been added to the circuit years ago, and Moist Esports becoming the youngest team to ever win an RLCS event. 

The collection of teenagers was formidable in the lower bracket run, however, their true brilliance came from orchestrating a crowd like a trio of conductors. Using their controllers as a beat of the drum and their aura as the baton, the chant of "Rise, Joyo, Vitaraaa" continues to echo off the walls.

Speaking after the coronation from Pierre "Turbopolsa" Silfver, Moist Esports' Finlay "rise." Fergurson was stunned at the support from the European fan base and those at home.

"It's ridiculous that there are that many people to cheer for me to play car football," said the 16-year-old champion, putting his win and the 7,000-large fan celebrations into perspective.

"I could say whatever I want, and the crowd would hype it up, so you just know that they're going to support you. It's crazy," he continued.

 

Reflecting on becoming the youngest ever RLCS event winners, rise. disregarded their age completely, and felt that their achievement was a token from learning the lessons from their loss in Winter. "We've always just told ourselves, since we formed, that 'we're the best team in the world. We're the best team in the world'. Well, it's true now and age doesn't matter."

"We got the experience from getting to the same stage last Split when we lost, and I think that having that experience over Falcons' was what gave us the edge," rise. added.

The championship win also sees Moist Esports confirm their status at the top of the European Standings, overtaking the dismally disappointing Team BDS, and cementing their automatic Group Stages seed.

"Just play the same way," was the simple message from rise., as the organisation now eyes the World Championships in Dallas and the RLCS trophy that comes with it.
