With the conclusion of the FACEIT X Games Rocket League Invitational, we’re ready to hit our next stop of the summer: DreamHack Atlanta. With teams from Europe and North America making their way out to battle for their share of the $50,000 prize pool, this will be the final clash between EU and NA in a LAN setting before the RLCS Season 4 World Championship.
The Road Leading to Atlanta
With NRG Esports taking their first-ever LAN victory at X Games, it seems the skill gap between North America and Europe may have finally closed. GarrettG turned in one of his strongest performances to date, and NRG consistently performed at a championship-caliber level. If they can bring the same mentality to Atlanta, they’re one of the teams to this DreamHack weekend.
Team EnVyUs and the newly signed Renegades squad (formerly SelflessGG) are striving for another top placement at DreamHack Atlanta. Despite both teams narrowly missing the top two at the X Games, they’re both hungry to reach the finals in Atlanta. With EnVyUs spending the week bootcamping, Deevo, Remkoe and gReazymeister are looking to bounce back after being defeated by Gale Force Esports in Minneapolis.
These are just four of the 44 teams that are making their way out to Atlanta to fight for the $50,000 prize pool. The real question is: will the teams who have dominated competitive Rocket League for months maintain their prowess, or will a dark horse team make a statement in Atlanta? With the RLCS Qualifiers on the horizon, this event will serve as a preview of what team rosters look like going into Season 4.
