Rocket League followers could not ask for extra drama out of Day 1 on the World Championships
The primary day of Rocket League‘s Season 6 RLCS match featured six matches. All six of them went to a fifth deciding sport within the best-of-five collection. No underdog went down and not using a combat, no favourite satisfied everybody it is the strongest workforce within the subject.
