The RLCS 2022-23 Spring series comes to an end with the international major with big money and points up for grabs.
After two long months, the spring series has seen teams all over the world compete for a spot at the Spring Major. We have seen the likes of Team Vitality sweeping the floor in the European Brackets with a win in every series and three different teams take wins in North America. All teams have competed to gain points in order to qualify for the Spring Major.
This tournament is a great place for teams in the smaller regions to show off their skills in hopes they can grab the top prizes from the bigger teams. Team Vitality, Spacestation Gaming and Complexity are teams that are expected to do well in this competition but underdogs such as KRÜ Esports and Ground Zero Gaming could also grab some wins if they can perform at their highest ability. This is each team's final chance to qualify for the World Championship if they haven't already. With lots of prizes up for grabs and spots left this isn't a tournament any Rocket League fan would want to miss out on.
This event will be hosted in Boston, Massachusetts at the Agganis Arena. LAN events give every team a better experience compared to the usual online games they play for regional matches. Also, the atmosphere in the stands can give people a boost but not everyone can handle the pressure of performing in front of thousands of fans in the arena. Tickets are still available for Saturday and Sunday for anyone who is wanting to still attend. Thursday and Friday will be played behind closed doors on live streams. Twitch drops will be available for viewers and will be awarded based on watch times. These can give you some new rewards to add to your garage.
