Rocket League Championship Series Fall Split Major preview Part 2

Two years of waiting has led to this moment. NRG Esports’ iconic win over Team Vitality at the Rocket League Championship Series Season 8 World Championships in December of 2019 was the last fans saw of international competition. On Dec. 8-12, that wait finally comes to an end with the RLCS 2021-2022 Fall Split Major in Stockholm, Sweden.

Sixteen teams will qualify for the event. Two of them are from regions that have never before played on an international RLCS stage. Asia Pacific and the Middle East and North Africa finally have their chance to play among the greats, while North America, Europe, Oceania and South America get to battle over who improved most in the last 24 months. Will Team BDS translate their Season X  online dominance, or can G2 finally grab that coveted RLCS LAN victory?

This is the RLCS Fall Split Major preview, Part 2 of 4. Part 1 covered NRG, Dignitas, Sandrock Gaming and Renegades.

North America: G2 Esports

  • Jacob “JKnaps” Knapman (Canada)
  • Reed “Chicago” Wilen (USA)
  • Andres “dreaz” Jordan (USA)

G2 is a volatile team. From reaching the RLCS Season 7 World Championship grand final to fighting against relegation, G2 has been all over the place through the years. Most recently, they’ve had to replace one of their iconic players when Dillon “Rizzo” Rizzo retired. In his place came the unknown dreaz. Initially, he was just allowed to try and prove himself at the tail end of Season X. Soon after, he established himself as a top player. Rather than trying out new players, G2 continued with dreaz into the 2021-22 season and have looked impressive ever since.
