Rocket League – RLCS World Championships

The RLCS Worlds were on this weekend, and two Aussie teams made their way to the Washington D.C. based competition. JAM Gaming and The Chiefs Esports Club faced off against eight of the best teams from NA and EU, and while things got off to a rough start, it was immensly exciting for fans of the game. Pale Horse lost to both PSG Esports and Mock-It Esports in straight sets, but the Chiefs clawed their way out of last place. Losing a nailbiter to G2 Esports, they then beat North American third seed NRG before falling in a slobberknocker against Cloud9. Cloud9 would go on to beat G2 Esports (who sent Chiefs to the Loser’s bracket) before falling to Method, who would wind up being dominated by the eventual champions, Gale Force Esports. Watch the Chiefs show-off some top tier play against NRG below.

CSGO – IESF World Championships

It was a bit hard to tune into the action at the IESF World Championships in Busan, South Korea. Three games shared the spotlight, with Tekken 7 and League of Legends stealing stream time away from Counter-Strike at times. Still, there was some fantastic CSGO action at the event as a mostly-Chiefs driven Australian side won their group but fell to Romania in the quarter finals. The Chiefs subbed in Grayhound’s DickStacey for an absent INS, and they struggled with putting both Switzerland and Romania away — casters pitched that perhaps the team didn’t want to pull out their main strategies with DickStacey in the mix. Nevertheless, they played well — watch them take the lead against Switzerland after being down almost the entire map.

Call of Duty WWII – APAC CWL 2000 Series

Call of Duty WWII is still a relative baby on the scene, having only been out a few weeks, but the competitive scene is already testing the waters with the first 2K series competition taking place over the weekend. Teams From around Australia duked it out for 2000 Pro Points, all the while feeling out the local competition for the World War 2 based game. With the mobility of Call of Duty’s last few games gone, COD:WW2 is a change of pace — but Mindfreak’s fantastic COD team didn’t seem to miss a step as they stomped their way through the competition. DDELS were the surprise upstarts in the competition, three-and-ohing everyone in their path on their way to the Finals — including Tainted Minds, who are still adjusting. In the end though, Mindfreak was too solid and they won. Watch Shockz clutch out a close round with a 2v1 below.
