An Update On the Fall Split Major

Ian Nowakowski 

September 4th, 2020

Now that we're about halfway through the Rocket League Championship Series (RLCS) X Fall Split, we wanted to take some time to update the community on our plans for the Fall Split Major. With the COVID-19 pandemic continuing worldwide, we won't be able to host the Fall Major in-person. This means we'll be pivoting to online Regional Majors that'll give the top 16 teams in Europe, North America, Oceania, and South America a shot at extra points, prizing, and regional glory!

How It'll Work

Fall Split Majors will work the same as the current format, but cut in half. Check out the breakdown below:

  • The top 16 teams in each region will qualify for the Fall Split Major

  • Each Major will last two days

  • Day 1 will feature a 16-team Swiss stage, with the top eight teams advancing to Playoffs

  • Day 2 is an eight-team, single-elimination playoff bracket with the winner becoming Regional Champions

  • Points earnings are doubled 

Both European and North American Regional Majors will feature a $100,000 prize pool, and since there are fewer teams qualified, a bigger cut of prizing and points will be up for grabs! For Oceania and South America, the Regional Majors will feature a $25,000 prize pool. Additionally, both Oceania and South America will once again be featured on the main Rocket League Twitch and YouTube channels!

Dates, Times, and Additional Information

Since there won't be one Major, and instead there are four Regional Majors, the month of October is going to have a ton of RLCS action. Check out the schedule below for each region:

Oceanic Regional Major

  • Day 1: October 9, 5 p.m. PDT (October 10, 10 a.m. AEST)

  • Day 2: October 10, 5 p.m. PDT (October 11, 10 a.m. AEST)

Some of our more eagle-eyed fans may have noticed that this means the first Trade Window will be affected. The Trade Window will now begin on October 26 and end on November 1.
