Rocket League Championship Series – Week 2 Standings

The following blog post was written by Chris Dolman and was originally published on Rocket League Central.

We’re two weeks in to the Rocket League Championship Series and this weekend we saw the best teams in the world battle it out against each other in the group stages. At the half way point in the groups, this is how the standings look:

Eff0rt 2 18 19 64 -45 10%

So, what do we know so far?

A few teams are dominant

On the NA side, perhaps predictably, iBUYPOWER Cosmic are leading the way at the top with a 20% better record than their closest rival Kings of Urban. In their first four matches they only dropped three games, although they are yet to face Kings of Urban. Incredibly they also managed to score 39 goals more than they conceded, 14 better than Kings of Urban and 9 better than the best of EU. The new Cosmic line up really is a force to be reckoned with.

In EU it’s We Dem Girlz and Mockit EU that lead the way with 75% and 70% win rates respectively. It’s not quite the same as iBP’s record, but seeing as both have played FlipSid3 Tactics and the EU talent pool is arguably deeper, they both have very solid records to build on going into the second week of group play. The match between them next week will likely determine who finishes top of the group, so that’s definitely one to watch.

The lower spots are there for the taking

Outside of the top one or two in both regions a lot of games seemed to end with 3-2 score lines, or teams made up for heavy defeats with clear cut victories of their own. In NA there are just three wins separating 4th and 8th place, and four wins separate 4th and 7th place in the European standings.

There will be more great Rocket League action next weekend

The play continues next weekend over on at 12pm PDT / 3pm EDT / 8pm BST / 9pm CEST so make sure to clear your schedule and mark it on your calendar. We’ll be finding out which teams make it  through into the first RLCS online final to fight for a slice of their region’s $5000 prize pool. With each team having just three matches left to prove themselves worthy of a spot in the online finals there’s a lot on the line, and that should bring out the best possible play.
