The Grid Report

POSTED BY Grauling September 11, 2020

RLCS X ‘The Grid’ is a great place to compete with the best 16 teams from Europe. After qualifying for the last open spot, we also had a great start in week 1 with a Top 8 finish. In a close battle, we fell short to Team Endpoint in the playoffs (2-3).

The following weeks did not look too good for our Rocket League team.

Again, we lost in game 5 against Team Endpoint in week 2. We were swept by Giants Gaming the week after and were reversed swept by Barca Esports in week 4. Three top 12 finishes in a row was not a bad result in this stacked competition but of course, we want to beat them all.

Week 5: new week – new motivation. Half of the weeklies are over.

We started of strong in our group with a 3-1 against Barca Esports and 3-2 against Triple Trouble. In the quarterfinals of the playoffs, we had a bad start against Top Blokes. We could get back in the series and closed it with a 4-2 win.

In the semifinals, we faced Renault Vitality. After a 6:19 minutes overtime Vitality could secure themselves match number 1. We could tie the series with a 1 goal game in the 2nd match. After several close matches it was time for the deciding game 7. With a 2-2 match score after the regular time we headed into overtime! Emotions were high – 1 goal to move forward into the Grand Final. Both teams put up a big fight and after almost 4 minutes of extra gameplay Vitality scored the deciding goal, which results in our first top 4 EU placement of the season.
