The Rocket League Championship Series Season 2 grand finals concluded Sunday in Amsterdam, with the top teams in the world giving it their all to take the main honors home. FlipSid3 Tactics managed to solidify themselves as the best Rocket League team in the world, while the field seemed more pared down than ever. Here's a look back at how their last day went:
Just like that, League Play for Rocket League Championship Series (RLCS) Season 9 has come to an end. That means that this weekend we look forward to crowning North American and European Regional Champions as the end of RLCS Season 9 for both regions. The Rocket League Championship Series (commonly abbreviated to RLCS) is the highest level of competition in professional Rocket League. The competition comprises of two leagues, RLCS North America and RLCS Europe, as well as hosting the World Championship which comprises of the top four teams from both leagues, as well as the top two teams from the OCE Championship.
Match 1: FlipSid3 Tactics versus NRG Esports
In the first match of the day, FlipSid3 eliminated NRG Esports with a convincing 3-1 and moved on to play the winner of the matchup featuring Take 3 and Precision Z. This was a massive confidence boost as FlipSid3 came off a shocking loss at the hands of Mockit Aces on Day 1.
Match 2: Precision Z versus Take 3
Take 3 surprised a lot of people in the match featuring both fourth seeds. With a clean sweep of Precision Z, Take 3 grabbed a top four spot and had to go on to face the formidable FlipSid3 Tactics. The confident result by Take 3 made many question if the beginnings of an upset were forming.
Match 3: Winners' Bracket Final
Mockit Aces took on Northern Gaming in the Winners' Bracket Final. In a surprising upset, Mockit Aces squeaked past Northern Gaming 4-3, pushing Northern Gaming into the Lower Bracket Final where they awaited the winner of Take 3 and FlipSid3 Tactics.
Match 4: FlipSid3 Tactics versus Take 3
In one of the most unsurprising results of the day, FlipSid3 Tactics dismantled Take 3 3-0 and set their path into a brawl with Northern Gaming. Take 3, the North American fourth seed, were happy to take fourth in the event, putting up a fight against teams such as Orbit.
