Rocket League now has a lot of teams, and Cloud9 is among them. It’s a little perplexing to see them recorded to win, despite the fact that the margin is. The last event they won was DreamHack Dallas in the start of June, but since we’ve seen them fall short on a couple of occasions. In the RLCS Season 7 Finals, they had been clean swept 4-0 from Renault Vitality in the semifinals.
Following that, they had been ousted in the quarterfinals of DreamHack Valencia by PSG Esports. Cloud9 has proven to be among the American clubs and they have a possibility of winning Rocket League Summit 1. But with them strangely listed because the favorites, so you can easily find better value elsewhere.
One of these teams is none aside from fellow North American group. After nearly four decades of playing NRG, Fireburner retired After Dreamhack Valencia. He is a tricky guy to replace but NRG filled their vacancy with a massive star from Europe. They also signed the Planet Earth Champion in Turbopolsa, that had been previously part of the incredibly dominant Dignitas of 2018.
This will be the very first event that we’ll see NRG with Turbopolsa on the roster. Together with JSTN and GarrettG, there is not any lack of ability and goal scoring ability. In actuality, there is likely no roster as gifted as that one. If each one the stars may get together then it might be a really impressive introduction for the newest look NRG.
At +2000, The Bricks are a very interesting case. Moving back into RLCS Season 7 Europe, The Bricks disappointed with a 7th place finish that saw them relegated into the Promotion Playoffs. They barely re-qualifed to get RLCS Season 8 by narrowly defeating Veloce Esports 4-3. This team seemed to be a base team in Europe who had to claw and bite their way back in the RLCS. Dreamhack Valencia rolled around. The Bricks created it all of the way into the semifinals by racking up wins over the likes of FC Barcelona, Dignitas and also Veloce Esports.
They would wind up losing to the eventual winners of this tournament in PSG Esports, however their run revealed a lot of progress. At the end of July, The Bricks also conquer top four European group Triple Trouble in their approach to winning the Rival Esports Summer Open. They are definitely still huge underdogs, however they might be able to make the most of teams sorting through their roster swaps.
Groups: NRG (+350)
Let us have fun and keep it civil.
