RLCS Format

The format for the Rocket League Championship Series has evolved for the 2021/22 season and has also expanded.

There are new regions joining for the upcoming season. The new regions that will be joining the RLCS are:

  • Asia-Pacific North (APAC N)
  • Asia-Pacific South (APAC S)
  • Middle East & North Africa (MENA)

There are a lot of changes to the format and they are:

  • The season will once again be divided into Fall/Autumn, Winter, and Spring Splits, leading to the Rocket League World Championship
  • Each Regional Event begins with an Open Qualifier
  • Teams are able to auto-qualify to Regional Events through their performance at the previous Regional Event; however, in the first Regional Event of the year, all teams must play in the Open Qualifier
  • Each Split has three Regional Events and is capped with a Major
  • Every Regional and every Major in each Split will have 16 teams
  • Each Split features a different format
  • Teams earn points at each event, with Majors being heavily weighted over Regional Events
  • Points from Regional Events and Majors are used to qualify to the Rocket League World Championship
  • RLCS: The Grid won’t be returning for the RLCS 2021-22 season, but team broadcasts are taking place on the first day of every Regional Event in Europe and North America
  • Teams are allowed to make two roster moves in total throughout the season, with a max of one per trade window, without forfeiting their points

Aside from these changes to the format, the World Championship will work as so:

  • The World Championship will have two main stages: the new World Championship Wildcard and the World Championship Main Event
  • Eight teams will auto-qualify to the Main Event
  • Regions that perform the best at Majors are rewarded with auto-qualification spots to the World Championship. After all three Majors, the best regions in the top eight of Major points will be weighted against each other to see who earns the most auto-qualified slots to the World Championship Main Event.
  • The Main Event will feature four double-elimination groups that feed into a high-stakes, single-elimination bracket.
  • 16 teams will qualify for the World Championship Wildcard and they are
  • -North America: Three seeds
  • -Europe: Three seeds
  • -Middle East & North Africa: Two seeds
  • -Oceania (OCE): Two seeds
