A world champion for Season 8 of Rocket League will be crowned as the 12 best teams in the world come to Madrid from December 13 to December 15, with a prize pool of over $500,000 on the line.

The excitement of a Rocket League World Championship is back, and the esports team at Psyonix has changed up the format for this season’s iteration of the finals.

Last season, they used a round-robin format for the group stage, with four groups of three teams. But according to the developers, this resulted in “matches that felt less impactful, especially when a team was out of contention and still had to play through their matches.”

Therefore, they have shifted the group stage format to a double-elimination bracket for each group, with two groups of six instead of four groups of three. The playoffs are also shifting to a six-team single-elimination bracket, instead of the previously used single-elimination eight-team knockout format.

17 players will make their World Championship debut this season, which according to Psyonix, beats the record of 16 set at the Season 3 and the Season 7 finals.
