Caster’s Corner Episode 1

As week 2 of MCS draws ever closer we begin to contemplate the possibilities of who will make league play and even win the title of MCS Champion Season 1.

The talent level in the MCS is undeniable and it goes to show how good this scene is becoming. With
NA teams like
Iris  (Lachinio,Squishy,Torment)
Ohana  – (HotwheelsSid,Moses,Dudewiththenose)
And EU teams
Urban Myths – (Doomsee,Sedadam,Bluey)
RedEye – (Dadooh,Tequilaz,X3MW)

its easy to see that this tourney will be unbelievable.

After week 2 we will narrow the field down to 16 teams, 8 in each division. This will give us 4 weeks of exciting league play where the combatants will duel it out 4 nights a week to stake their claim at the over $5000 prize.
Its not an easy road, but it is a rewarding one to the team that can maintain the mental fortitude needed to obtain the ultimate prize. Season 1 MCS Champion. Who will it be? My favorites have to be the teams already mentioned but favorites do lose as seen in the recent RLCS tournament. Other notable teams would have to be NA : Nova, Freestylers in Disguise, Heroes of Tomorrow, Eggplant , LIFE , Toxicity and Spectrum. While EU boasts teams like Rex Gaming , Copenhagen Flames, Retry, Planetkey Dynamics , OneTrickPony and eff0rt. All and all this sets up to be a memorable event for players and fans. Having this streamed in four languages will definitely add to the excitement. Lets see what the next few months has in store for us.

MCS Week 2 Information

We would like to extend a MASSIVE thank you to the over 1,000 Entrants into the first of our quarterly MCS tournaments. The reception from the community was nothing less than AMAZING.

Additionally, we would like to extend a special thank you to the teams who qualified for week 2. The teams are as follows:

Next weeks brackets can be found here:
Americas brackets Click Here
EU Brackets Click Here

Variance from RLCS:
We thought it was a better idea to reset the entire bracket for week 2. In RLCS, the losers bracket is maintained. However, we had many comments on seeding. To make sure the seeding is 100% fair, our week 2 will be a full bracket reset.

Times:
Times are are on the smash brackets. Refer there for local times.

Streams:
Official Streams will start on Tuesday, April 4th.
Streamed Matches:
On the brackets they are notated as: Winners Quarter-Final and Losers Round 4.
Essentially, the matches that punch a team’s ticket to league play will be streamed.  The brackets will be paused and the members of the teams competing will be given lobby details. Teams who are in these matches MUST BE on the Mockit Discord to receive their streaming instructions. If a match starts before a stream is ready, the match will be restarted wholly, no exceptions. Being in the discord simply allows us to disseminate information quicker. You do not need to be in voice chat.

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 done through Matcherino
+ RLCS Live Final Tickets (conditions apply)

Times
+ We will be streaming on multiple channels in multiple languages.
+ Tentative schedule is Monday Tuesday Thursday Friday 7:00pm  – 10:00PM Eastern and BST times

Format
+ 2 weeks of qualifiers followed by 4 weeks of league play (Similar to that of RLCS)
+ There will be Separate SA, NA, and EU League Play.
+ Finals will be decided via a fair online way TBD. May 27th and 28th

Enough talking, when can we sign up?
+ Sign ups will be announced at the beginning of next week.
