The RLCS Fall Majors had some great talent on display before Gen.G Mobil 1 Racing eventually came away with the victory. Before the RLCS Winter Open begins, we take a closer look at the very best Rocket League players to keep your eye on.
The new RLCS split brings a whole new format with lots of changes to the tournament. One thing we are hoping remains the same is the quality that was on show throughout the RLCS Fall series. Let's dive into the latest Rocket League news and see if those mentioned below will be planning to match or surpass all expectations.
