Mockit Championship Series Announced

As League Play commences for the fabled RLCS, the community finds itself in a very awkward position. This RLCS qualifying season was a strange one; more upsets than anyone could have ever imagined. To that end, many heart broken and demoralized fans watched their favorite teams start to disband. We at Mockit think this is highly detrimental to the future stability of the Rocket League scene, so we are starting the MCS!

Here are the tentative details. More details and full outline will be available soon.

Rules
+ Rules will be formally announced soon, but you can use the RLCS official rules as a template to what the MCS rules will look like.
+ If you are registered on a team that made League Play for RLCS you CANNOT enter the MCS!

Eligibility
+ South America
+ North America
+ Europe
+ Must be 15 years of age of older

Streams
+ Streams will be cast in a variety of languages all at the same time on different twitch channels. This is so viewers who have a preference of language can watch in a more relaxed fashion.
   Tentative Languages
   + Spanish
   + French
   + Dutch
   + English
If you would like to apply to be a caster for the MCS, please email tray@mockit.gg

Prize
+ The initial prize is set at $5,000, however, all donations received during MCS official streams will go directly to the prize pool. That’s right. ALL DONATIONS!. So the final prize will be much more than $5,000.

Times
+ We will be streaming on multiple channels in multiple languages.
+ Tentative schedule is M-Th 6:00pm Eastern – 10:00PM Eastern.
