It seems like the season just started and here we are already in the home stretch. Our first teams are already clinching spots in playoffs. Congrats are in order for the following teams.
Clappers – As Seen on TV! (Heca) – Premier: (Distant. ? (C), Melted ⭐, DyP, yung-)
Koala Bears – The Bear Den (Arbartenn) – Prospect: (Cpt Jon Smith (C), Donkmedaddy, React, Gah’Lagah)
Barbarians – The Sovereign (Way2Luckee) – Prospect: (Kli (C), Vencill, Widdl, ir2b_bananaman)
With dominant performances putting up at least a 75% win rates, these teams are already cementing their spot in the big show. Now they need to keep the pressure up and lock in a top seed. If you want the sheet with all the up to date standings, you can find that here, and if you want a sortable list of all stats from Season X, you can find that here.
No team is truly eliminated yet. The end is in sight. Let’s go get those Ws.
When winter storms make it difficult to play your games, RSC is out here to remind you that life always has to come first. MD7 and MD8 have been allowed to be delayed due to weather based on the needs of the participating teams. These matches must be made up by March 3rd, 10p ET and March 8th, 10P ET respectively.
Keep this in mind when looking at this end of week 4 snapshot. Some teams will be missing 4 or 8 games for postponement. If you want the sheet with all the up to date standings, you can find that here, and if you want a sortable list of all stats from Season X, you can find that here.
I’ma be real with you right now. This is gonna be one he*k of an info dump, so strap in. We’re already over a third of the way through the season and everyone should have played their conference rivals by now. It’s still early, so everyone is truly still in the hunt for a playoff spot. Those of us that are under the cut are hunting for opportunities to make an upset and make up some ground. Those that are atop the charts are already imagining a cup beside their name and coming strong every day to protect their playoff aspirations. And those that are FAs are hoping for their chance to get rostered and be part of a wildcard juggernaut.
This is how the first week goes down. Is your team crushing it or do y’all got some work left in the lab? Trick question, we all have work left to do in the lab.
Are you rostered and want your team to play on stream? The schedule can be found here. Make sure your captain picks a good match and applies for it in #RSC-Official-Stream-Signups on the RSC server. Signups open the week before the scheduled stream at Noon EST. If the main stream is filled, please continue applying. Our stream team still wants to stream your matches, but we need people on the schedule to activate the Lunar Stream, so start bugging your team to get things rolling.
If you’re a Free Agent and you haven’t already, make sure you get in on the FA Discord Server. They’re holding matches and reporting stats all season on Match Days so that the GMs and decision makers have up to date information on everyone’s skills.
That said, let’s take a peek at the matchups on the Solar Stream that will be commentated by baX and strutt (with musah holding things down on stream production). First up at 10:50 PM EST, we have some of the heavy hitters up in Master flexing those skills in this matchup between The Hamburgers and Hot Dogs (I’m dubbing this the Cookout Showmatch)
We’ll be following this up with a showdown in Contender between the Dart Frogs and Samurai at 11:30 PM EST
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.
