Rocket League - A Growing eSports Title

Wed 31st Jan 2018 - 6:15am General Gaming

The growth of the Rocket League eSports scene has skyrocketed in recent months. With more and more teams starting to get involved in Rocket League eSports, the game has seen a massive growth in popularity. For example, Team EnVyUs has recently acquired three well-known players by the names of Remkoe, Maestro, and Deevo, who will immediately place EnVy into the top-tier of Rocket League competition. EnVy have a huge following, and they are the most popular organization to pick up a Rocket League team up to this point. Could this lead other popular organizations to follow suit and acquire their own Rocket League teams? It certainly seems as though that could be a possibility.

Teams would certainly have reason to get involved in Rocket League competition. The recent RLCS Season Three World Championship in early June sold-out The Wiltern Theater in Los Angeles, California, an impressive feat for a relatively new game (Rocket League released in July of 2015). On top of this, the Twitch livestream of the event peaked at nearly 200,000 viewers, which is more than some other popular eSports games draw in. These impressive viewership numbers are no doubt a major reason why organizations have decided to start getting involved with this game, as it allows them to have their names exposed to a large amount of people. In addition to this already large viewership total, Psyonix, the creators of Rocket League, have recently announced a partnership with the NBC Sports Group. This partnership will see a two vs. two tournament be broadcast on the NBC Sports Network in the United States, and the Syfy channel in the United Kingdom, Germany, Australia, and Latin America. This tournament will take place August 26th and 27th, and will have a prize pool of $100,000.

Another sign of growth in Rocket League competition has been the increase in prize pool amounts for the game's major events. As previously stated, the upcoming televised tournament will have a prize pool of $100,000. The RLCS Season Three World Championship in June had a prize pool of $300,000, with the champions of the event, Northern Gaming, taking home $55,000. This is up from the previous year's championship event, which had a prize pool of $250,000. This is a result of Psyonix's dedication to Rocket League's eSports scene, announcing in early 2017 that they intend to invest $2,500,000 towards Rocket League eSports over the course of 2017, including $1,000,000 in prize pools. The support from Psyonix has made a large impact on the scene, and is a major reason why it seems very likely that Rocket League will continue to grow into one of the most popular eSports titles.

These are just a few of the many reasons why Rocket League has grown. The fact that Rocket League is very exciting to watch and play also adds to the popularity of it. All of these reasons are why the top eSports organizations, including Elevate, will need to keep an eye on Rocket League's growth going forward, and consider all opportunities to venture into this game. It is certainly going to be an exciting time if you are a Rocket League fan!
