The Overview

What is Rocket Lads?

Grassroot. Esports.
Rocket Lads
is an in house Tournament Series for the game Rocket League ran by Serenity Gaming. 
We run two events per year, one Regular Season and one special event called Clash of the Titans.

Our Regular Season consists of two stages the Round Robin and Playoffs.
We usually have around 42 players split up into 14 teams for our regular season.

For the Round Robin we split teams into Divisions where they play one match against each team in their division.
The teams at the top of the round robin qualify for the playoffs, while the bottom teams face off in he wild card match.
The wild card matches are always exciting, the winning team qualifies for the playoffs and the losing team goes home for the season.

Teams are seeded into the Playoff double elmination bracket based on their round robin statistics. 
We try and livestream all of the playoff upper bracket matches.

Our regular season event is open to players rank Platnium or above in 2v2 or 3v3 with in the past two Rocket League seasons. 
We have a wide range of skilled players from Platnium to super sonic!

We schedule the regular season to start in the fall and end early spring at the latest.

Clash of the Titans! Is an exciting event that is for rank Champion or above.
We run this shorter event in late summer, usually held over one or two weekends. 
For this event we run a double elmination bracket, our event organizers create the team rosters, team names and logos. 
All matches are best of 5 up to the finals which are best of 7.

How are teams formed?

As we encourage all of our members to join no matter what rank they are, you may wonder how on earth we make things consistentand fair!?

Our skilled admin team collects the Ranked ELO data for all members who sign up for each season. 
Thats why we require everyone to have atleast played their placement matches.

The team then creates a spread sheet of all the players listing them in order of ELO. 
Based on that data, as well as knowledge of players previous Rocket Lads history, they form teams.

The general idea is to form teams that have a "Team ELO" (combined ELO from all 3 players) is equal  or close to all other teams. Which usually works out to having a high ELO player matches with a lower ELO player, and a mid level player added as the 3rd player to round out the team.

This formula has proven to work, and with minor tweaks we see it only improving for future Seasons!
