Team Envy is the NA Champion
The series itself was a spectacular event of Rocket League esports. North American teams fought fiercely for their share of a $100 thousand prize pool. 24 teams began competing in this event on November 21 but only the strongest prevailed.
RLCS X Winter Split grand finals in particular saw a very close match. Team Envy and NRG Esports played against each for an intense best of seven Rocket League series. Envy initially dominated the grand finals and took the series to three games. But NRG quickly found its momentum and the team brought the series back to tie it up. The last game in the series reached overtime and Envy got a close goal to end the tournament.
Both teams worked hard, bringing five of the seven total RLCS X Winter Split games to overtime. And although every match came very close, Envy and Pierre “Turbopolsa” Silfver eventually beat down NRG 4-3. Rocket League team Rogue also got very close to the grand finals, though they lost to Envy in the Winners’ Finals and NRG in the Losers’ Finals.
