The Rocket League community is getting professional interregional play one way or another, at least per John "Johnnyboi_i" MacDonald.
After the disappointing cancellation of the long-overdue RLCS X Worlds LAN event, the Scotsman confirmed an NA vs EU matchup during the latest episode of the Salt Cast after a Twitter altercation arose from Joseph "noly" Kidd’s allegations against the North American Region.
“M0nkeyM00n is 100% better than FirstKiller in every way possible”, the English player stated during the Rocket League podcast First Touch on Monday, also confirming his strong beliefs that his team, Guild Esports, is “top five” in the world, above NA’s Rogue.
This, inherently, started turning gears overseas and with the help of your favourite host, Johnnyboi, it seems we have a match set in stone between defending EU Regional champs Guild and three of the top players in NA East.
Without further ado, here’s everything you need to know about the NA vs EU Rocket League show match.
