It's been a great year for Rocket League Esports so far -- from the incredible finish at the Season 5 World Championship to the major announcement of the first $1 Million prize pool for the Rocket League Championship Series (RLCS) that kicks off next month!
With the opening day for RLCS 6 just around the corner, we thought it made sense to listen to your requests for more communication and kick off a new, semi-regular series (that we're calling "Let's Talk...") that will offer a little insight into some of the things that we're working on.
We'll begin this first article with a quick look at one of the most promising regions in Rocket League Esports, South America (SAM). Over the past month, you may have noticed a long-overdue push by Psyonix to get more involved and support our incredible community partners in the South American region. We were extremely excited to have the opportunity to sponsor tournaments from great organizers like Rocket Street and LVP. Their hard work gave us a glimpse at the deep pool of talent from our players in the SAM region, and while those tournaments were an amazing start for players and fans, we think we can do more.
Throughout the rest of 2018, we will be ramping up our support in the region as we plan to work with existing and (hopefully) new partners to give our SAM players a plethora of opportunities to compete with the best the region has to offer.
