It’s been a fantastic weekend for UK esports organisations Endpoint and SMPR who have both qualified for the 2021-22 Rocket League Fall Major.
Not only did they finish first and fourth in the RLCS EU Fall Rankings respectively, after accruing points in the three regionals, but they also reached the final of the EU Regional Event 3 this weekend.
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 last month.
Endpoint, aka Endpoint CeX, won $30,000 for winning, while SMPR took home $20,000 as runners-up.
Endpoint have UK player RelatingWave, Finnish player Metsanauris and French 17-year-old Seikoo, while SMPR has French players Kassio and Chausette45 and English player Archie in their starting three.
The Rocket League RLCS Fall Major takes place in Stockholm, Sweden, from December 8th to 12th 2021. Endpoint and SMPR are two of 16 teams that will do battle as some of the best sides from around the world, including FaZe, G2, Complexity, Renegades and more.
The other EU sides that qualified for the Major are BDS, Vitality and Dignitas, while UK outfit Williams Resolve finished ninth in the EU Fall Rankings.
Another UK org, Guild Esports, finished bottom of the EU Fall Rankings in 18th place. The news comes after Guild’s Rocket League coach Gregan departed the org earlier this month to focus on casting once more.
Endpoint CEO Adam Jessop was ecstatic after his team’s performances this weekend.
“Huge result from the Endpoint Rocket League guys, making the Stockholm major. So proud of their season so far and how hard they have worked to get there,” Adam Jessop said on Twitter.
“It’s just insane! We finish the first split as number one in Europe! We are just OP at bootcamp and the players are all amazing.”
Adam added that the Rocket League team said at the end of RLCSX: “We have been trialing a bunch of experienced and known players, but there is this 17-year-old French kid called Seikoo who looks amazing… definitely worth a punt.”
Seikoo seems to be that final piece in the puzzle and Endpoint are just flying in Rocket League at the moment – now let’s see what they can do at the Major.
Last month, Endpoint CeX became the first UK esports team to launch a blockchain fan token, with plans to open a new team HQ in 2022.
