The Summer of Rocket League Esports continues with the conclusion of the DreamHack Summer Rocket League Championship. Teams from all over Europe and even North America made their way to beautiful Jönköping, Sweden to fight for their share of $50,000 in prize money. In an impressive 4-2 victory over Gale Force Esports, FlipSid3 Tactics took the first-ever DreamHack Rocket League Championship title.
FlipSid3 Tactics came out strong in every matchup over the weekend. The addition of Miztik to the FlipSid3 roster allowed Markydooda and Kuxir97 to play at a level reminiscent of their RLCS Season 2 World Championship performance. With Miztik finally achieving his first LAN victory, and F3's strong performance overall, the future looks bright for the European juggernauts.
Gale Force Esports also had a strong showing at the event with a newly-formed roster of ViolentPanda, KayDop and Turbopolsa. Displaying a dominant ground game against Rogue and Team Infuse, the roster performed well in their first LAN appearance together. With Turbopolsa not officially confirmed on the GFE roster, their performance at DreamHack Summer speaks to the rapid chemistry of the team. With more competition coming up this summer, we expect to see GFE’s final roster spot filled in the near future.
