Rocket League esports’ Season X is well and truly getting underway this weekend as the best teams in Europe look to start earning RLCS Circuit Rainking Points to qualify for the World Championship — not to mention the $100,000 prize pool.

With the entire world seemingly on hold thanks to the ongoing health crisis, esports has had to change its tact too, but now things are starting to get back on track and Rocket League players are getting to work on qualifying for the World Championship.

So, let’s take a look at the first regional event for RLCS Season X — here’s everything you need to know.

Who’s playing, and what’s the format?

RLCS X marks the 10th season of competitive Rocket League play.

As mentioned, the first EU Regional event brings together 32 of Europe’s best Rocket League teams, including the likes of FC Barcelona, Dignitas, Team Liquid and the new team invested in by David Beckham, Guild Esports.

The tournament is played in Swiss Format, meaning teams play other teams that have the same record. For example, if Guild win their first match, they’ll play another 1-0 team in the second round on August 2.

16 teams will be eliminated on August 2, while another 16 will make the next stage of the Swiss bracket on August 8, with the best eight teams there making it to playoffs on August 9, where they’ll be fighting for the big bucks.

How to watch

The tournament will be available to watch through various streams, including Rocket League’s Twitch and YouTube channels, ELEAGUE’s Twitch channel and, for French viewers, Rocket Baguette on Twitch.

Remember: matches start at 9am PT (12pm ET / 5pm BST) on Saturday, August 1, so make sure you’re tuned in by then to catch all the action.

Prize pool breakdown

According to Liquipedia, every team in attendance at the EU Regional will make some money and earn some points from the event. Here’s the complete prize pool breakdown:

The Rocket League challenges, which have already been revealed, are fairly straightforward, with one task simply requiring you to “play an online match” to earn a Fortnite reward.

Here’s what you’ll need to do to earn each of these Rocket League rewards.

How to claim Rocket League rewards in Fortnite

  1. Download Rocket League for free, if you don’t have it already.
  2. You’ll then need to load up the game and complete each of the Rocket League tasks, which can be found below.
  3. After completing the challenges, you’ll simply need to log into Fortnite.
  4. From there, you should be able to find the Rocket League-themed items in your Locker.

As your Epic Games account is connected to both Rocket League and Fortnite, it will register the challenges automatically, meaning you won’t have to manually claim the items after each task.
