ZZZ eSports - the SERLC Season 5 Champions!

After a long and difficult path through SERLC, we were greeted by an exciting Playoff phase!

The first match of the semi-finals had VeNoM Gaming  (who picked up Bread eSports before the seventh matchday of League play) confidently winning against Fort Templar Titans with a 3-1 result, while the other match of the Playoffs surprised us. Fort Templar Renegades with the dangerous player Tokyo in their roster, as well as hoodied, whom we already know as last season's champion, were the favorites in this one. However, ZZZ eSports sweeped them with a clean 3-0 win, fighting their way all to the finals!

After their defeat in the semi finals, Fort Templar Renegades decided to forfeit the 3rd place match, giving away the position to the Titans, leaving us to finish this season with the Grand Finals.

VeNoM and ZZZ have already given us a fantastic match series in the League play phase. Back then, everything seemed to be going ZZZ's way, but VeNoM gathered the last atoms of their strength and turned the result to their advantage. However, the finals painted a completely different picture, as ZZZ started the series very aggressively right off the bat, leaving VeNoM shocked as it seems.

Apart from the attacking strategy, ZZZ have to be praised for their incredible consistency in rotations, shots and passes, which they used to overpower VeNoM gaming. The first match of the BO7 series already showed the dominance of ZZZ eSports, and by the end of the second match, it seemed that VeNoM gaming are standing completely lost against this opponent. The rest of the series is already history, and we can't skip mentioning the player who, as it seems, did most of the work: Scream.

With his outstanding performance, he has removed every doubt, and showed that he wants the Southeast Europe Champion title. With 8 goals in the finals, he showed his class, but also proved why has qualified for three RLCS Regional Events in the past.

ZZZ eSports have been awarded with 200€, while VeNoM gaming is getting a 100€ prize. The consolation price of 2000c will be given to Fort Templar Titans.

Congratulations to ZZZ eSports, the SERLC Season 5 Champions!

Competitive ruling – Ego Maniacs

Due to Ego Maniacs not showing up for their second match of SERLC Season 5, they will be DQ'd from the competition.

That means?
To fill up their spot in the League, we will be inviting the team that finished 9th in the qualification process for this season, which is Team Puncture.

How will this work out?
Team Puncture will play the remaining matches that Ego Maniacs were supposed to play. As for the matches that Ego Maniacs already played, they will be replayed off schedule.

What will happen to the members of Ego Maniacs?
As they have ruined the competitive integrity of the matches, they will not be allowed to join other teams for the remainder of Season 5, nor play in Torpedo League.

Season 4 is coming to an end! Who's gonna get the crown?

Yesterday's match between Risky Business and Kulenovići marked the end of this season's matches. The next step are the Play Offs, where the 6 best teams from the standings will face off once again in a Single Elimination tournament, to finally decide the Champion!

We are happy for the fact that the point difference between first placed Ego Maniacs and sixth-placed Karnos eSportsis only 10, pointing out that there is not much difference between these teams, and that every single one of them is ready to win. We expect a treat with lots of goals and "fancy" moves.

"I haven't slept the whole night,
thinking about the champion title and how much it means to me."

Anonymous Season 4 Participant

Looking back

We had 16 teams registered for this season. Unfortunately, not all of them had the capacity to finish the season, Godetic, Insidious and V Syndicate quit before the end. This made placement in the standings easier for some teams, resulting in Eagles, Arn Dorf, Lupus3 and LED Gaming unsticking themselves from the bottom. 

Right off the start, Ego Maniacs and Team Black Diamond have established themselves as season favorites, keeping that status until the end, fighting for first place.

One of the big surprises this season is Kulenovići. Unfortunately, they didn't manage to squeeze into the first 6. Another surprise is We Dem Kidz. Their captain, Terra, can be very proud of their 5th place that takes them to the Play Offs.

Very interesting and long season. It started on April 5 with Team Black Diamond playing against Godetic eSports, and ended yesterday, on July 5, exactly three months later.

Play Offs

Finally, we are presenting the matches that will be played in the Play Offs. Ego Maniacs and Team Black Diamond, the first- and second-placed teams, will be automatically progressing to Round 2. There, they will play against the winners of Round 1.

Karnos eSports and We Dem Kidz are facing off first, while the second match of round one will have Puncture and Risky Businessfacing off. These matches will be held in BestOf3 format.


In the end, winners of round 2 will face off in the Grand Finals , playing BestOf5 and deciding the Champion of Season 4!

Reminder, the winning team gets 150€ and 1000 in-game credits!


These matches will be held on July 19, starting at 5:15pm CEST.Don't miss our Live Stream: https://www.twitch.tv/ligaraketa

What comes next?

We are aware that the long season took it's toll on the players. Because of that, we will change some details about the competition, and by that changing the way the main league works. The name Rocket Championship will be changed, so it will better represent the competition's cause, and it will be separated into several divisions.

Some rules are going to be changed - regarding participation, but also behaviour, as well as some Quality of Life details in order to further improve the content we provide to viewers and participants.

14-day Transfer break is on!

Matchday 6 is finally over. The Standings have separated the best from those less good, but we are only halfway through season 4. Today marks the start of our 14 day transfer break. This means that teams will have the opportunity to improve or otherwise change their rosters, making the second part of the season even more interesting!

We wish good luck to all the captains in finding the best possible roster for their team, and the fight for a better position!
