Team BDS win Rocket League RLCS 21/22 Fall Major after UK orgs exit playoffs

Swiss esports organisation Team BDS have emerged triumphant at the Rocket League RLCS 21/22 Fall Major in Sweden today, after beating NRG 4-1 and 4-3 in the grand final.

Spanish player MaRc_By_8 and French players M0nkey M00n and Extra helped BDS take the $90,000 top prize and silence their doubters with a solid performance in the Fall Major.

In the playoffs stage, BDS beat Complexity 4-2 in the quarter final and UK team SMPR Esports 4-2 in the semi-final before facing NRG in the final.

It was a good run for UK org SMPR, which features UK player archie and French players Kassio and Chausette45.

The UK’s other organisation at the Fall Major, Endpoint, had enjoyed some stellar form of late. They fell in the quarter finals to FaZe Clan with a 4-2 loss.

Endpoint and SMPR both qualified for the 2021-22 Rocket League Fall Major in late November, when they both played one another in the final of the EU Regional Event 3. Endpoint defeated SMPR 4-2 and 4-3 in the grand final, giving them their second EU Regional Event win, after Endpoint won the first RLCS European Fall Open.

The UK can be proud to have some top talent in Rocket League and to have shown the world we can stand beside the world’s best.

SMPR’s manager Reece Mullins said on Twitter:

SMPR added in this tweet: “Unfortunately, Team BDS prove one step too far as our RLCS Fall Major run ends in the semi-finals. However, we can leave Sweden with our heads held high. Coming in as the fourth seed from Europe and reaching top four is a huge achievement. See you next split.”

Endpoint also said they were proud of their team’s performances during the major:

The UK’s finish in the Rocket League Fall Major echoes our performances in Valorant Champions over the past week, where Team Liquid were knocked out in the semi final and Fnatic in the quarter final.

The UK can be proud with this strong finish to 2021, in what has been another action-packed year full of memories and developments in a range of esports titles and tournaments.

Roll on 2022 – we’ll get ’em next time.
