Rocket League: Grand Final Preview

There is no shortage of action available this week. Both Brisbane Deceptors and Sydney Chiefs are currently undefeated in Rocket League and face off in what could be a glimpse at this seasons finals.

The Sydney Chiefs have a world-class roster, but the Brisbane Deceptors have Jake, who is a 3x RLCS contestant, and one of the strongest players in the region. He is currently listed as “retired.” Could this be a comeback-inspiring run for Jake?

The Brisbane Deceptors have proved they deserve to be at the top of the ladder these past weeks so this match is certainly not to be missed. Make sure to tune into Network Ten’s Peach from 11am AEDT for all the Rocket League action.

Finals In Sight

Reigning champs Melbourne ORDER are continuing their form at the top of the ladder, tied with Melbourne Avant in both CS:GO, Street Fighter, and the overall Club Championship. They’re still yet to meet in a Melbourne derby, however, making their clash all the more impactful.

Rocket League is certainly leaving some room for upsets, the top two teams are tied, which will change when they face off this week. On the other end of the ladder, both Melbourne teams are currently tied last. Like last season, the finals should be an interesting run.

Overall, Perth Ground Zero and Sydney Chiefs have the best shot at unseating the Melbourne domination in the club championship, and these next two weeks will be key to their finals chances.
