And while a lot of details need to be hammered out, there will be more events further down the line. In similar news, tomorrow, November 30, the latest Rocket League Pro event for 2018 kicks off.

A minimum of 32 teams will join the competition, a respectable number that may quickly grow, particularly given the push for collegiate esports, with hundreds of schools and universities across the United States setting up their Rocket League squads.

The title is shaping up to be one of the primary games in future DreamHack competitions, gaining popularity as the next defining esports experience in the west.

The 2017-2018 season served as a litmus test for DreamHack, with the organization teasing out the prospects for Rocket League as a full-blown esports and finding an opportunity to develop the market.

Meanwhile, Rocket League has been notching up one important milestone after another, with the game recently clocking its three billion played matches. Psyonix has been busy promoting its products, but the game itself has been cultivating loyal following.

You don’t need to be intimately familiar with the mechanics to understand the competition that is unfolding before your eyes as a spectator, and it’s this inherent simplicity that puts the game way up in the wish list of many new esports organizations.
