During Rocket League’s rostermania, many European rosters have already disclosed that they will not be continuing to compete together in the Rocket League Championship Series (RLCS) 22-23. Many teams are dissatisfied with how their season went and are planning to disband as a result. This includes prominent organizations like SMPR Esports, Luminosity Gaming, Endpoint CeX, Dignitas, Guild Esports, and NAVI. As of this moment, there have not been very many new teams announced; this is because, over the course of the next few months, all of the players will be looking to decide their rosters in advance of the start of the season.
Speculation Regarding Rocket League’s Rostermania
It has been rumored that the players on Dignitas have parted ways ahead of the RLCS 22-23 season because the team was unable to qualify for the Spring Major and finished in the top 16 at the World Championship. This is despite the fact that Dignitas finished in second place in Europe during the Fall split.
The future is uncertain for Jack “ApparentlyJack” Benton and Kyle “Scrub Killa” Robertson, while Joris “Joreuz” Robben plans to reunite with his former teammate Archie “archie” Pickthall from Endpoint CeX (who have also announced that they will be splitting up for similar reasons to Dignitas). Dignitas will be disbanding for the same reasons.
The ex-00 Nation duo of Breezi and FlamE (along with their coach Ethzn) were looking for a new third going into RLCS 22-23 because Hibbs had left at the beginning of the off season. This was due to the fact that the second half of the previous season was a very disappointing one. Since then, the team has revealed that they will be using up-and-coming prospect Noahsaki as their third in the hopes that this new addition will reinvigorate the team and assist them in making an impact during the upcoming season.
Marc “MaRc_By_8.” Domingo is scheduled to return for the upcoming season as part of a fully Spanish lineup alongside Sergio “AtomiK” Pérez Cortés and Ivan “DORITO#@” Ruiz Jiménez. This comes after Enzo “Seikoo” Grondein took his place on Team BDS’s World Championship winning roster. This organization-less team, who will compete under the name “ARG,” will be looking to exact their vengeance, and Marc will be eager to demonstrate that he is far too talented to be relegated to the bench.
The beginning of the transfer season for teams based in North America
Over in North America, the veteran gamer Slater “rentals” Thomas was dismissed from his position with Spacestation Gaming as the main roster headline. The conclusion was reached relatively quickly after the team’s disappointing performance in the Top 12 at the RLCS World Championship, which came as a surprise to the fans. It has been speculated that Tshaka “Arsenal” Lateef Taylor Jr. and Daniel “Daniel” Piecenski will be moving on into RLCS 22-23 with Logan “Lj.” Wilt, who is still currently signed to Oxygen Gaming.
Another top team based in North America, FaZe Clan, is rumored to be considering making a switch in the near future. It has been rumored that FaZe are looking to remove Austin “AYYJAYY” Aebi from the roster and potentially pick up Nick “mist” Costello, who has recently announced his departure from OpTic Gaming as an unrestricted free agent. This is despite the fact that FaZe finished in the top four at the World Championships, which was a very impressive accomplishment.
Rogue have struggled to compete at the top of North America this season and as a result are looking to make some changes. This is despite the fact that they are currently ranked first in North America in RLCSX. Recent rumors have suggested that Nick “Chronic” Iwanski will be added to the roster alongside Jirair “Gyro” Papazian and Christopher “Aqua” Campbell, taking the place of Alexandre “Taroco” Reis Pedrogam.
The credit value of the White Hat in Rocket League is approximately 1.165 million Rocket League credits on average. The White Hat has a value of $7,000 in terms of dollars that can be spent in the real world.
The fact that it can no longer be acquired through normal gameplay explains why this item is priced so high. The previous method for players to acquire this Rocket League item consisted of reporting exploits that broke the game in multiplayer competitive matches. The hat was a token of appreciation from the developers for the feedback provided regarding how the game could be improved. The reward was no longer given after the game was made available without charge in the year 2020.
