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.

Low5ive’s Editing Contest Results

The Results Are In!

 

First off, I want to thank everyone for their submissions.  I had a little over 40 submissions and they were all awesome to watch, thank you guys so much for putting your best efforts in.  I had a lot of trouble selecting these top three, to be honest–too many of you submitted awesome videos.

That said, I think the following three excelled.  These guys created some awesome videos, and I hope you enjoy them as much as I did.

Without further ado…

 

 

3)  Little Cat Steps

[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0zYBUYUpwEY[/youtube]

Little Cat Steps really showed what you can do with minimal editing here.  Some of the takes in this video were gorgeous enough to print and frame on a wall.

 

 

2) Synergy Ollie

Super fun edit and awesome song choice!  I can’t wait to see what this guy pulls out next.  Head’s up, Ollie–we’ll have to make the Mock-it ‘tage royalty free 😉

 

 

And our $100 winner….

1) Storm.

It speaks for itself.

 

Congrats to these three and job well done, these videos were super fun to watch! I’ll be emailing the “Teamtage” clips for the next phase in about a week to the emails from which you submitted for another shot at more cash and a chance at a part-time job on the Creative Team for Mock-it.

 

Cheers, guys.  This was a blast, looking forward to round 2.

 

William “Low5ive” Copeland

IsaacEdits submitted this hilarious take on the montage, I couldn’t NOT post it.  Check it out.

Izzail’s Blog

Hello there Mockit lovers and Rocketleague enthusiasts,

My name is Izzail and I am the Play by Play shoutcaster for Mockitleage. We look to be starting blog posts so I thought I would make the first one about myself so that you might get to know me better. My real name is Chris and I am Canadian if you didn’t already know. I am an old guy who is 30 but feel young at heart and love the esports scene. I got into rocket league at the launch but am new to the esports casting scene. Mockit was amazing enough to give me the opportunity to try my hand at it and I fell in love with it instantly. I have had alot of great responses from the viewers and players and I would sincerely like to say thank you to everyone. I was paired up with some guy named Kerrytaz on my first tournament broadcast and the chemistry we formed right away was something special and has lead to us in the opinion of many becoming the leading pair in Rocketleague commentary. We continue to run 3 tournaments a week and continue to see the participants and viewers growing with each cast. The future is looking bright for Rocketleague and Mockit.gg and i am super happy to be a part of it. I will continue to write blog posts for all of you let me know what you want to hear about in the comments below.

Challonge DDOS and Recovery

He Mockit Headz,

As some of you may know, challonge was allegedly ddos’d and their CDN Incapsula could not stand the DDOS. This caused the Mockit Bracket for the 3v3 tournament on Saturday March 19th to adapt. We at Mockit are quick on our feet, and the awesome team sprang into action. We threw up the whiteboard and started to do it manually.

We put snapshots in our discord server and honestly, our AMAZING community was super supportive. The Mockit Team behind the scenes was doing manual brackets and it went incredibly well.

Challonge recovered about 25 minutes later and the bracket was quickly updated.  Thanks to everyone who was patient with us and a huge shout out to the Mockit Team for being so amazingly on point to aid in manual pencil whipping during the outtage.

Thanks for being awesome folks.

Luckey
