The General NRG places second in the Fall Major Championship, but still holds the number one spot in the overall team rankings
With the Rocket League Championship Series (RLCS) well underway, The General NRG was able to secure a spot in the Fall Major tournament, which took place in Stockholm, Sweden. The team knew that flying across the globe to compete against some of the world’s best teams would be no easy task, however, they were ready to prove to everyone that they are ready to secure another world championship.
Fall Major Tournament and Winter Regional #1 Results
During the team’s first matchup, they endured a tough loss against Team BDS. The General NRG’s Coach Sizz called the loss “unfortunate,” but was looking forward to a redeeming victory against EndPoint CEX. The team continued their momentum which resulted in qualifying as a top-8 team, therefore setting themselves up with the chance to leave Sweden with the Fall Major Championship.
The General NRG was able to make the final round of the Fall Major, but unfortunately fell short to a team they had previously struggled against, Team BDS. Despite the loss, The General NRG is still in first place for the overall standings, putting another World Championship win within arms reach.
