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.
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.
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.
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).
