The first day of Rocket League‘s Season 6 RLCS event featured six fits. All six of them went to a 5th deciding sport in the best-of-five collection. No underdog went down and not using a combat, no favourite satisfied everybody it is the most powerful group in the box.
It’s difficult to pick out a unmarried supreme collection as a result of not anything was once regimen about the opening to RLCS. A matchup between G2 and FlipSid3 Tactics was once the maximum expected in the weeks main as much as the event. G2’s Kronovi and FlipSid3’s Kuxir97 are the closest Rocket League has to true legends; their squads received RLCS Seasons 1 and 2, respectively.

If there is a unmarried large winner from Day 1, it is indubitably Chiefs Esports out of the Oceania area. They defeated Paris Saint-Germain in the opening sport ahead of happening to dissatisfied NRG in the ultimate fit of the afternoon. Oceania has been regularly bettering over the previous four seasons they usually no doubt do not seem like impostors anymore. The rowdy Las Vegas crowd subsidized the Chiefs’ effort with loud cries of “Aussie Aussie Aussie! Oy Oy Oy!” They’ll most probably be the fan favourite so long as they are nonetheless alive in the event.
Another disappointing (and slightly baffling) appearing got here from Cloud9, a group that almost all everybody in RLCS fears. Facing We Dem Girlz, the simplest RLCS squad that’s not signed by means of a certified group, Cloud9 appeared ready to keep an eye on the pitch after operating out some kinks in a first-game loss. Squishy was once popping off, which crescendoed with this turn reset dunk:
