Rocket League has a lot of teams that are amazing, also Cloud9 is one of them. However, it’s a little perplexing to see them recorded as the favorites to win, although the margin is essentially non-existent. The last event they won was DreamHack Dallas in the start of June, but since then we’ve observed them fall short on a few occasions. In the RLCS Season 7 Finalsthey had been sterile swept 4-0 from Renault Vitality in the semifinals.
Following that, they have been ousted in DreamHack Valencia’s quarterfinals from PSG Esports. Cloud9 has proven to be among the very greatest North American teams and they certainly have a chance of winning Rocket League Summit 1. However, with them strangely listed because the favorites, you may find better value elsewhere.
One of those groups is none other than fellow North American team, NRG Esports. After Dreamhack Valencia, Fireburner retired after almost four decades of playing for NRG. He is a challenging man to replace but NRG stuffed their vacancy with a enormous star from Europe. They signed the three-time World Champion at Turbopolsa, that had been previously a part of the exceptionally dominant Dignitas of 2018.
This is going to be the first event that we will see NRG with Turbopolsa about the roster. Alongside JSTN and GarrettG, there is not any lack of ability and goal scoring ability. Actually, there is probably gifted as this one. If all of the stars can get along then it may be a rather impressive introduction for the new appearance NRG.
Listed at +2000, The Bricks are a really interesting case. Going back to RLCS Season 7 Europe, The Bricks frustrated with a 7th place finish that saw them relegated into the Promotion Playoffs. They hardly re-qualifed to get RLCS Season 8 by narrowly defeating Veloce Esports 4-3. This team seemed to be. Then Dreamhack Valencia wrapped around. The Bricks created it all of the way to the semifinals by racking up wins over the likes of FC Barcelona, Dignitas and also Veloce Esports.
They would wind up losing to the eventual winners of this championship in PSG Esports, but their run revealed a lot of improvement. In the end of July, The Bricks also conquer top four European team Triple Trouble on their way to winning Rival Esports Summer Open. They are definitely still enormous underdogs, however they might have the ability to take advantage of teams sorting through their own roster swaps.
Picks: NRG (+350)
Let us have fun and keep it civil.
