Fan-favorite Rocket League team Triple Trouble has reformed for the Rival Series (RLRS), the team announced today, with past member Euan “Tadpole” Ingram the first announced player for the new roster. The other players have yet to be announced.

Tadpole played with Method last season in the Rival Series, and that roster still maintains its spot in the European league for this season. Given the rules of the league, that means that Tadpole will have to team with at least one of his former Method teammates – Rix “Rix Ronday” Ronday or Boris “Borito B” Pieper – to retain the spot.

Rumors ahead of today’s announcement pointed to Tadpole and Rix Ronday sticking together with a surprising new third: FC Barcelona’s Daniel “Bluey” Bluett. Given that the Triple Trouble Twitter account follows both of those other players, it seems like a safe bet that the new Triple Trouble roster will indeed comprise of Tadpole, Rix Ronday, and Bluey. (Or they’re just messing with us.)

Triple Trouble last competed in RLCS Season 7 and made it to the World Championship, where their supportive families and clear sense of camaraderie made for a compelling storyline. However, the narrative came crumbling down after the season, as Aldin “Ronaky” Hodzic left for FC Barcelona and Andy “Kassio” Landais departed for Veloce Esports, forfeiting Triple Trouble’s RLCS spot and leaving Tadpole without a team.

Method has yet to announce the expected release of its Rocket League team, as recently rumored, although Borito B was released from the roster last week. Likewise, FC Barcelona has made no announcement about the status of Bluey, who still has team branding on his Twitter profile. We will update this story when further details are confirmed.
