Rocket League Challenge Season 3 - Week 2 Recap

Week 2 Recap

We're halfway through the Round Robin League Play, and the competition is still tight. This week was the polar opposite of week one, where we saw a lot of 3-0 sweeps, and dominant performances. Despite that, the competition is still incredibly close, with every team having at least 1 win, and no team having more than 2 wins!

Match 1: Scylla Esports vs The Other Team

After a slow start to the season by both of these teams, a loss here for either would mean that they lose all chance of qualify in the highly important 1st seed position at the end of the League, and make it all that much harder to qualify for the finals. In what was a battle of fast tempo coming Scylla Esports against The Other Team who attempt to slow the game down, it was always going to be a battle of pace, and as Scylla Esports picked up the pace, and started executing crisply, clinching out the series 3 - 0, and sending The Other Team packing to the bottom of the ladder.

Match 2: JAM Gaming vs The Other Team

Coming into this match, we saw a complete contrast of expectations. JAM Gaming were coming in hot form, while The Other Team just came off the loss to Scylla Esports, and a 0-2 record. The Other team had been struggling to re-shape their team with the addition of Siki. We were immediately surprised by the complete switchup of playstyle, with ellusive pushing forward, and Siki playing the offensive midfielder feeding him passes. They put on a complete show and absolutely dominated the series, taking down JAM Gaming 3 - 0 in the biggest upset of the day.

Match 3: JAM Gaming vs Legacy eSports

Legacy Esports are the next challenger for top team JAM Gaming, and they just came off the win against the season 2 champions, Billy Fan Club. This was the chance for them to prove that they could take down both top teams at the beginning of the tournament, but this week was not theirs. Falling quickly, Legacy eSports were not able to keep up with JAM Gaming who punished their overcommitment and cleanly took their series 3 - 0.

Match 4: You See Me vs Billy Fan Club

You See Me took down Legacy eSports last week in a nailbiter, but this week they have the true challenge, Season 1 and 2 champions, Billy Fan Club. On the other side of the coin, a loss for Billy Fan Club would mean relegation to last place and 0 - 2 record in league Play. Despite some close games, You See Me hit hard and fast, scoring more than 10 demolitions and a series of bumps over the course of 4 games, and ended with You See Me scoring goal after goal. This earns You See Me top of the ladder, and sends Billy Fan Club to the bottom.
