Dignitas is still Rocket League’s unstoppable force

At the end of 2018 one could easily forget about the dominance of Dignitas in the world of Rocket League. They got defeated by Cloud9 in the World Championship and when ELEAGUE came around they still seemed unable to match their expectations. When we put up an end-of-the-year poll on Twitter, people voted heavily in favor of Cloud9 as team of the year. Everybody seemed to have forgotten that it was Dignitas who won back-to-back World Championships, who went on an insane win streak and basically dominated every opponent they faced over the course of many months.

Yukeo scored an insane amount of goals

Dreamhack Leipzig was one hell of a reminder that this team is still an unstoppable force – maybe more than ever. Yukeo, the latest addition to the roster, has always been on the shortlist for most-promising players, but this Dreamhack was the first time he and his new teammates, ViolentPanda and Turbopolsa, played together on the big stage. And Yukeo nailed it! He scored an insane amount of goals during the entire tournament, among them an insanely important overtime goal versus RLCS newcomers Savage that placed Dignitas in the Grand Final of Dreamhack Leipzig where they defeated Vitality (including former Dignitas World Champion Kaydop) 4-2 to secure $50,000 in prize money.

One thing we can say for certain: RLCS Season 7 will be more intense than ever. Dreamhack Leipzig was the most stacked tournament in Rocket League history, and as the game establishes itself more and more as an esport, we see an overall increase in the skill level of competitive teams, which is why many suggest that RLCS should add more team spots (Paschy was very vocal about this in our interview).
