The star-studded roster of remkoe, EyeIgnite and Metsanaurus took down NRG and Cloud9 in convincing fashion by a score of 4-2 and 4-1 on the way to their first major title.
After nearly a full year of Dignitas dominating the Rocket League scene, new teams are finally challenging their dynasty. Many people have been surprised at the team’s recent performances, but some analysts saw it coming.
“To me the Dig era is over. Strict whiteboard plays with zero ability to restructure mid-game means destruction. The creativity from solo plays live on, as is evident in WDG and C9,” said Rocket League championship series analyst and stage host Brody “Liefx” Moore.
“WDG winning both surprises me and doesn’t. It does because we thought the C9 play style was the ultimate play style in the current meta. Little did I realize, we had a rock-paper-scissors system approaching us. Dig beats WDG. WDG beats C9. C9 beats Dig. What I will say, is that at the end of the day C9 has the most potential to bounce back, with WDG right behind them,” he added.
With the Rocket League season now over, many teams and organizations will be looking to improve going into next season. Roster changes are likely to be made for many of the bottom-tier teams, while most of the top level rosters will likely stay intact.
Season 7 of the Rocket League championship series begins early next year but there is no set date at this time.
