RLCS Season X is the second season of the Rocket League Championship Series in 2020, moving into 2021. This weekend saw the conclusion of Winter: Europe, as Regional Event 3 came to an end, with a well-deserved victory for Team BDS. However, this one was also hard-earned.
Team BDS earned the trophy with a thrilling 4:3 finals win against Giants Gaming (GIA). This result was a surprise: BDS lost a duel against Giants Gaming with 2:4 earlier in the tournament and therefore had to fight their way through the lower bracket. There, they defeated Dignitas with a clear 4:0 and thus earned a second chance. Then came the big finals and their revenge.
The final rounds could hardly be surpassed in excitement: The games went back and forth between BDS and GIA. It remained exciting until the last game 7, which ended 1-1 in regular time and had to go into overtime. Both teams were nervous and cautious, so it took a whole three minutes until the decisive golden goal, scored by Evan "M0nkey M00n" Rogez!
With that, BDS won one of the biggest Rocket League events in Europe and took home a big chunk of the $100,000 prize pool. Here is the ranking of all teams in the RLCS Season X - Winter: Europe Regional Event 3 finals and their prize pools won.
