Season 6 of the RLCS has doubled it’s prize pool with $ 1MILLION available
- Psyonix have announced the early details for RLCS 6, which starts later this year
- Rocket League’s esports scene continues to grow after the success of RLCS 5
- The second tier of Rocket League, the Rival Series, also has a bigger prize pool
Rocket League is one of biggest ‘up-and-coming’ esports in the world after a highly successful fifth season of the Rocket League Championship Series (RLCS), Psyonix really want to put the game on the map.
Psyonix have announced they are stepping up their investment into the game’s competitive scene by doubling the next season’s prize pool to a staggering $1million (£760k).
Qualifiers for RLCS 6 begin next month (August) while league play in North America and Europe kick off on September 8 and 9 respectively. Dates for the finals have not yet been announced.
Psyonix have revealed that RLCS 6 will see the prize pool doubled to a monumental $1million
RL esports have only been around for a couple of years but have already attracted some of the biggest names in esports including G2 esports, Cloud9, Fnatic and Paris-Saint Germain.
Last season, RLCS 5 culminated in a heart-stopping final in London, in which the roster newly acquired by Team Dignitas claimed a consecutive World Championship. Many hold the tournament as the best RL event ever and the incredible final was deservedly one of our favourite esports moments of 2018 so far.
That’s why Psyonix have great belief in the game’s esports potential and why they’re trying to build on their ecosystem. The second tier of RL esports, the Rival Series, is also having its prize pool doubled to $100k (£76k).
That will play a huge part in developing future esports stars and drawing even more big-name teams into the scene. We’ve already seen some teams make a name for themselves in RL with the likes of FlipSid3 Tactics and Gale Force finding success in the past.
RLCS will see more new faces as a few teams were promoted from the Rival Series with Ex-Servette Genea joining Europe and FlyQuest and Allegiance joining in North America.
The location for RLCS 6 finals hasn’t been announced yet but the teaser trailer and logo certainly seem to hint at either Las Vegas or Miami with the neon sign and colour scheme. Psyonix say they will announce more details soon and also hint that the prize pool will not be the only exciting announcement on the way.
