After a hard-fought Winter Split, it's finally time to crown some Regional Major Champions! Due to Coronavirus health concerns, there won't be an in-person Major, and each Rocket League Championship Series (RLCS) region will have their own online Regional Major.
So, what can you expect from the Winter Split Regional Majors? Let's dive into it.
How It’ll Work
Much like the Fall Split, the Regional Majors will be the current RLCS format, but cut in half. Check out a quick breakdown of how each Regional Major will work:
The top 12 teams in each region will qualify for their respective region's Winter Split Major
Each Regional Major will run two days
The format is a 12-team, double-elimination bracket
Points earnings are doubled
With fewer qualified teams, the competition is only getting more elite, and more is up for grabs in the Winter Regional Majors than any event before it in the Rocket League Championship Series (RLCS) X.
A $100,000 prize pool is on the table for both the North American and European Winter Regional Majors, while Oceania and South America will be competing for $25,000 each. Additionally, both Oceania and South America will once again be featured on the main Rocket League Twitch and YouTube channels!
