Rocket League Esports Issue Competitive Rulings for SpaceStation Gaming and Team Envy
Rocket League Esports have issued two separate competitive rulings for Slater "Retals" Thomas and SpaceStation Gaming.
- Against Slater "Retals" Thomas: It has been ruled that Slater "Retals" Thomas has violated the RLCS Player Code of Conduct. This violation comes in the form of "berating and harassing tournament administrators and Psyonix employees through Discord and Twitch". Due to the infraction, Retals will be disqualified from competing in the first day of NA Spring Split Regional Major.
- Against SpaceStation Gaming: It has been ruled that during the match in question, Sypical "experienced a controller disconnect which resulted in him losing all control of his car during overtime". It was originally believed that Sypical was simply experiencing high ping, but this has now been ruled incorrect. Thus, SpaceStation Gaming has been granted an additional 70 points in the NA Regionals.

- Team Envy
- NRG (NRG Esports)

Team Envy's win, in particular, was a thrilling affair, after a tense and insane seven-game series against NRG. The two giants battled it out, but sadly for NRG, only one team could take first place...

RLCS X NA Championship Sunday Competitors Confirmed
After an insane few days of competition, it looks like we have our Top 8:
- Oxygen Esports
- Shopify Rebellion
- SpaceStation Gaming
- Alpine Esports
- Team Envy
- Ghost Gaming
Keep in mind, whilst we will see all eight of these teams battling it out viciously for the place of RLCS X North American Regional Champions, the Top 6 teams will additionally move onto the RLCS X Championships in May. Additionally, Championship Sunday will determine who will compete in the NA Majors. Keep your eyes peeled, it's going to be a tough one...

SpaceStation Gaming Moves on to Championship Sunday
SpaceStation Gaming will move on to Championship Sunday after a not-so-close match against Shopify Rebellion. The now infamous team took the game home with a score of 3:1, beating out Shopify Rebellion, and telling us ever the more fervently: SpaceStation Gaming are a team to be feared!
Team Envy Destroy Charlotte Phoenix
Team Envy have absolutely ruined Charlotte Phoenix, taking the game home with a score of 7:0. There doesn't look like there is much of a road back for Charlotte Phoenix at this stage, more than guaranteeing Team Envy a place on Championship Sunday.
Still, 7:0? Holy cow! That is insanely impressive. GG, boys, GG.

The Lamborghini Open is this weekend, opening up spots for both the Spring Split Major, and eventually the RLCS X Championships in May. The event is a the final North American Regional Event for the RLCS X.
The Battle for Top 6, or those who will qualify for the RLCS X Championships, is tight.

- Alpine is likely not to qualify, currently at 8th Place.
- Currently, there are three teams fighting it out for 5th or 6th Place:
- G2 Esports (2100 Points, Currently 5th Place)
- FaZe Clan (2060 Points, Currently 6th Place)
- Kansas City Pioneers (1970 Points, Currently 7th Place)
