Rocket League Joins Million Dollar Club
Rocket League Esports has officially joined the million dollar club – a mark that is commonly used to show the success and status of an esport. Starting in Season 6, the RLCS will have a $1,000,000 pool and the Rival Series will have a $100,000 pool.
The current rules point to the league keeping the same regions and format as last season. While the rules are subject-to-change, it does not look like we will see a new region(s), double-round robin, or other community suggested format changes for the upcoming season. However, Psyonix did hint that they had more “exciting things to announce regarding this season of the RLCS.”
Rosters are locked July 30th for RLCS and August 5th for Rival Series. Expect to see roster announcements between now and then.
League play begins with North America on September 8th and Europe on September 9th.
