Endpoint shocks the world, upsets BDS in RLCS European Open finals

The British organisation toppled the Swiss cyborgs as Endpoint CEX handed Team BDS their second grand finals loss in their Rocket League history.
The old continent started their Rocket League Championship Series 21/22 season with a bang that included the last campaign’s grand slam champions and a Cinderella-story opposing roster.

Endpoint shocked the world as they upset Team BDS in back-to-back best-of-sevens to win the European Open, the first of three regionals ahead of the December Stockholm LAN Major.

With the result, the English org leads the region with 301 circuit points and takes home $30,000 in prize pool money as runner-ups BDS secure second place and $20,000 for their performance.

Endpoint pushed BDS to their limits, twice

While the now-European Open champions’ performances in the past have always been far from subpar, it’s BDS history in the spotlight that assisted in taking everyone by surprise after they dropped in the grand finals to Endpoint.

The best-of set includes a best-of-three series best-of-seven games format in which Endpoint CEX swept the three-time EU Major champions.

The match, which would ultimately last two hours and ten minutes, pushed the only two series from the set to Game 7 and wrap a bow around the instant classic grand finals.

Similar paths lead to unexpected grand finals match-up

Both grand finalists would get through the Swiss stage of the tournament with a 3-1 record with only one loss differentiating each other in the seeding process.

Then, Marc "MaRc_By_8." Domingo, Evan "M0nkey M00n" Rogez and Alex "Extra" Paoli would crush through the competition as they swept Evil Geniuses and only dropped one game against Dignitas in the quarter-finals and semis respectively.

On the other side of the bracket, veteran Otto "Metsanauris" Kaipiainen and captain Lucas "RelatingWave" Rose would assist newcomer and rookie Enzo "Seikoo" Grondein onto their first grand finals win by taking down Misfits and Karmine in dominant fashion.

The six-year career of scene staple Metsa has been decorated by his first RLCS tournament win as he was later met with a wave of support following the grand finals wrap up.

You can relive this RLCS European season opener as the VOD is available on both Rocket League Esports’ Twitch and YouTube channels.
