We're just days away from kicking off the Rocket League Championship Series (RLCS) X Championships! From June 15-20, the sixteen best Rocket League teams in the world will hit the field to find out who is truly the best in their regions. There's a lot of information to go over and we've even got a sneak peek at a brand-new broadcast package we're debuting for the RLCS X Championships.

Let's get right into it!

Format and Teams

As mentioned in the RLCS X Championships announcement, we're introducing a new format to RLCS play. The new format, dubbed "Best-of Sets," can have up to three "Best-of" series within each set. The first team to win two Best-of Series wins the Best-of Set. In the RLCS X Championships, there will be a combination of "Best-of-5 Sets" and "Best-of-7 Sets" depending on the stage of the tournament.

The Oceanic and South American RLCS X Championships will feature the two top teams from each region facing off in a single Best-of-7 Set to determine the winner, while the top six teams from Europe and North America respectively will face off in a grueling Page Playoff format.

Leveling Up the Broadcast


For the RLCS X Championships, we wanted to upgrade the viewing experience to put more information in the hands of viewers. The first thing you'll notice is the completely redesigned and sleeker overall presentation. While the look has changed, the wings—or broadcast elements attached to the scoreboard—still house all the same information they used to.

The biggest (and probably most obvious) change outside of the new look is the hybrid boost and status elements that sit on either side of the scoreboard's wings. Viewers can now track individual players' boost, demolitions, goals, saves, and assists throughout a game and match. Is a team getting boost starved? Just check their collective gauges. Who just got demoed in goal? Just check the status bars. It's a quick and easy way to see the strategy of high-level Rocket League unfold.

At the bottom of the screen, the player card and boost gauge have both been given overhauls to conserve space and match the new style as well. It's important to remember that this is a first iteration and we'll be taking feedback from the community to make sure this new presentation style continues to improve over time.

If you want to see a sneak peek of the new broadcast assets in action before the RLCS X Championships kick off, be sure to tune in to the First Touch Season One Finale on Monday at 10 a.m. PDT (5 p.m. UTC)!
