Preseason Match Day 3 Hype!

What a whirlwind of a preseason. There have been too many people on two teams to all fit in the same lobby. Captains aren’t set yet, so we’re firing DMs semi-blindly to the opposing team to set up arrangements for games. Many cuts and team shifts have been made to try to secure the strongest team under salary cap going into Opening Day.

Today is the final dress rehearsal. Teams are down to 4 players. Tonight we test to see if the teams have what it takes to go the distance or if we need to be keeping an eye on all those FAs that were trimmed without having a chance to shine (Pro tip: About half of the teams will have sub-.500 records, so there should be lots of teams searching for overlooked gold).

Good luck. Get that game face on and let’s see what everyone’s made of.

Season X Draft Hype

Do you smell it in the air? We’ve got a fresh draft class in the oven getting ready to reach perfect doneness.

Happy Season X Draft, RSC family.

Today we get that new set of teamies. Everyone has the same 0-0 record. Today is for possibilities.

Make sure you’re tuned in to the RSC Twitch Channel tonight at  8PM EST to catch the whole thing live. But if you need a taste of that hype now, let me point you over to the Instagram Feed where you can get fired up on this sweet intro video we have lined up for this season. And if you’re not already following RSC on Twitter, you know what to do.

Goodbye 2020, Hello 2021!

Hey there, RSC family!

Tonight we bid farewell to 2020 and usher in a fresh year on the grind. There is nothing official going down tonight, but I’m sure there should be at least a few folks having adult beverages and queueing 6-mans.

Things are about to start moving quickly for Season X, so get ready for things to get bumping here soon. Be sure to catch the draft lottery this Sunday 1/3 on the RSC Twitch Channel to find out where your favorite franchise is going to land on the draft board. This will be the last week of combines, so make sure you get yourself noticed 1/4 and 1/6. If you’re on a team and waiting to find out if you’re getting cut loose for the draft, the last day for GMs to finalize cuts and re-signs is 1/8 with the draft going hot and heavy Monday 1/11.

Mask up and stay safe out there, fam. Drinking and driving is a no-no all the time, but the po-po go extra hard on New Year’s Eve. We need you alive and free if you’re making a play for a Championship Cup in Season X.

Good luck and don’t be afraid to triple commit. Sometimes you just gotta make sure.

Last December Combine Week Hype!

Hey there RSC family!

Season X is approaching rapidly. Don’t forget that we still have combines tonight and Friday (12/16 & 12/18) at 9PM EST. Get out there and get yourself noticed so all the scouts have something to think about over the holiday break.

If you haven’t put in much time into combines, don’t get down on yourself too hard, but you’re running out of time. We’ll be picking back up again for 2 days in January (1/4 & 1/6), but don’t wait. Secure your spot in the hearts and minds of the scouts ASAP.

Season X Hype and Season 9 Recap

Hey there RSC family!

Combines start tonight! If you’re not in yet, now is the perfect time to get in our Discord and get registered for Season X of RSC. You’ll need to have 75 games of Ranked 3s on your account in either Season 1 or the upcoming Season 2 to play this season, so I hope y’all have been on that grind.

As the hype train winds up for Season X, let’s take a moment to acknowledge a few small changes that went down in the offseason and recap how it all went down to close out Season 9.

First off, big congrats go out to TinyElephant and his crew in The Empire for securing GM of the Season and Franchise of the Season. This 7 team squad went an overall 271-141 (.658) to secure the highest win percentage for the regular season, sent 6 teams to the playoffs, and his TIE Fighters clinched a cup in Challenger.

Second, it’s a pleasure to announce that Feen and itonydelatorre will be returning to their posts as admins for the next 2 seasons.

And finally, I’ve compiled all of the results from finals for your reading pleasure below (with links to the streams if you want to relive the glory).

Premier and Amateur Finals Preview

Good Evening RSC Fans! Tonight represents the end of Season 7 for both our highest and lowest ranked tiers, Premier and Amateur respectively.

In the Amateur Tier, we have the Solar Champion Zerglings (35-21, Anthage) facing off against the Lunar Champion Potatoes (37-19, Derk) to find out who is the champion!

The Potatoes finished the season tied for the best overall record in the tier and showed out in the semifinal matchup against Odyssey (37-19, Juanma) where they won with a sweep. Swaney24 leads the team with 393.3 PPG and SvG_KingCanix is setting him up with .62 APG.

The Zerglings finished with a slim lead over the Otters (34-22, Adammast) within the regular season and they battled it out in the semifinals. Zerglings won the match-up in the full five games. They are led by Widdl who leads the entire tier in GPG and PPG with 1.49 & 409.0 respectively.

Who will come out on top?

In the Premier Tier, We have the Solar Champion Demon-O’s (42-14, Cearu) taking the field against the Lunar Champion Aces (33-23, Ryryboltwrap) to crown a champion!

The Aces were able to finish the regular season atop of the Lunar Conference and rode that momentum to a comfortable semifinal victory over the regular season runner ups, Metal (30-26, DareMe).  The Aces leading scorer is Bits with 54 goals on the season, but is followed up closely by Seb with 43 goals.

The Demon-O’s finished the season with the best record in the tier at 42-14. They met the Hurricanes (30-26, Shamu) in the semifinals but handled their business with a 3-1 series win. Gatman led the tier in scoring with 74 goals and the team in PPG with 462.5. His teammates Cearu and Southpaw are both in the top 15 of goals in the tier as well.

Will the Dynamic duo of Seb and Bits be able to stifle the strong attack of the Demon-O’s? Tune in to find out!

Tonight the first two champions of Season 7 get crowned, time to get hyped! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Uktzh8vAVI

Playoffs are Coming!

Good Evening RSC Fans!

It is officially crunch time for most of the tiers in RSC. Playoffs are right around the corner and we have some teams that have clinched and quite a few other teams fighting on the edge of a playoff spot. Lets take a quick look tier by tier:

In Premier, Congratulations go out to the Demon-O’s and the Garbage Trucks who have both clinched a spot in the playoffs.

On the bubble we have the Hurricanes, Wheelchairs and The Avengers all fighting for that final Solar playoff spot. The Hurricanes currently hold the playoff spot, can they hold off the other teams?

In Elite, there are only three match nights left and not a single playoff spot has been clinched! Gelato and Illuminati lead their respective conferences, but need to finish strong to lock up the #1 seed.

The Frosted Wraiths and Missiles are currently tied for the final playoff spot in the Solar conference with the Dumpsters just on the outside looking in. The Kings hold the final playoff spot in the Lunar conference on a tiebreaker with Knights, but the Knights are charging! Will the Knights steal the spot?

In Major, We have the Cyclones who have clinched their spot in the playoffs, but with four match nights remaining there is still plenty to sort out.

The Grizzly Bears and Lumbers hold the final playoff spots in the Solar and Lunar Conferences respectively. They have a small lead, but a lot can change in a match night, stay tuned!

In Minor, The Pepes can clinch their playoff position with a sweep tonight! Will they be the first team to in the tier to secure their division?

Cinnamon Ghost Crunch is holding a slim lead in the Solar Playoff Hunt, but Dynamite and the Velociraptors are each just two games back. With four match nights remaining, who will be able to make a run?

In Challenger, The Polar Bears and Shock have both clinched their respective divisions and thus are locked into the playoffs. The Stingrays and Pythons are one game away from clinching, so lets see if they can reach the playoffs tonight!

The North divisions of both Solar and Lunar conference will end up deciding a lot of the final playoff positions in this tier. Currently 4 out of the 4 teams in Solar North Division are at least within three games of a playoff position and 4 out of 4 teams in the Lunar North Division are currently in the playoffs! With the final three match nights remaining being in division opponents, it is going to be thrilling to see how this all shakes out. Good luck to all involved!

In Prospect, Congratulations to both Gallimimus and Snow Owls for clinching the playoffs! Now the battle for the number one seed commences with the Zomberries and Wobbegongs trying to catch up!

In the Lunar Playoff Hunt, Wintergreen holds the final spot, but the Spartans and Gorgons are just two games back. Will one of these teams right the ship and secure that final playoff spot?

In Contender, The Snap-its have a commanding lead on the number one seed in the Solar Conference Playoffs, but there is a tight battle in the Lunar Conference for that number one seed. Currently the Pumpkins, Samurai and Stargazers all are within 2 games of each other. The Samurai have the best record over the last 5 match nights. Can they keep up the good form?

While the Snap-its have clinched a playoff spot, the final two spots in the Solar Conference are being highly contested! Alley Cats, Sea Turtles and Overcast all are vying for the spot and with only three match nights remaining, now is the time for a run!

In Amateur, We have only two match nights remaining and currently only the Zerglings and Odyssey have clinched their playoff spots! Congratulations go out to those two but the work is not done. There are still teams that can take the top seed away from each of them so keep pushing!

And finally in the Solar conference it could all come down to the final match night. The Rattlers and Cheese Fries will play each other of Wednesday night and currently the Cheese Fries are just two games back of the Rattlers who hold the final playoff spot. Should be a hell of a finish there!

So there you have it folks. The entire RSC playoff picture in one big post. If you want a more in depth view of the entire playoff picture check out our RSCC S7 Team Standings Google Doc: https://bit.ly/2VZb4Sw

See you all in the playoffs!
