He’s correct. Some of the teams to progress to DreamHack Leipzig came from the Rocket League Rival Series (RLRS) eliminating Rocket League Championship Series (RLCS) teams.
The Rival Series (RLRS) are a feeder league for Championship Series (RLCS). The run runs parallel to the RLCS with the top first teams qualifying for the next RLCS.
So far, the invited teams include the talents of:
- NRG Esports
- Team SoloMid
They are backed by teams that have managed to qualify into the competition, including:
- CompLexity Gaming
- Team Secret
- Ghost Gaming
The qualified teams are all very promising with Bread being the equivalent of very skilled grassroots contenders. They are ranked #19 in the overall standing and have fetched $15,500 in total earnings. The Leipzig gig will be their chance to carve a name for themselves.
Meanwhile, Team Secret are now known as Ex Secret, as the organization decided to drop their squad last year.
