The tournament will feature an open qualifier, listings for which are already live on Smash.gg. You can register yourself and your team if you wish to qualify for the event. The tournament will feature a total of four qualified teams. They will have a distribution of two teams from Europe and two from North America. However, there is still to be an official announcement on the invitations and the format for the event.
Rocket League is slowly shaping up to be a very promising esports title. The title has a very non-controversial style of gameplay and is extremely fun to watch. With Psyonix constantly updating the game in order to make the mechanics smoother and fun to play, we expect this game to reach new heights in 2019.
