Solary enter Rocket League esports with aquistiton of Block Block

French org Solary has entered the world of Rocket League esports with the signing of the all-French RLRS roster - Block Block.
Solary has entered the world of Rocket League esports for the first time by picking up the European Rocket League Rival Series (RLRS) roster - Block Block. 

 

 

The all-French roster is comprised of players Brice "ExoTiiK" Bigeard, Kérian  "Kérian" Candolfi, and Aleix "Meloshisu" Fernandes - they played their first matches as Solary on Friday - during Week 2 of the European RLRS, where they were duly beaten by RCD Espanyol and Team BDS giving them a 1-2 record for the season.     

They weren't the only team to get signed heading into Week 2 - Italian organisation Notorious Legion signed the roster previously known as Awkward Turtle.

 

 

They fared better in their new colours winning their opening game of the season with a 3-0 defeat of RJM.

Solary is one of France's most successful esport organisations with teams in League of Legends, Fortnite, Hearthstone, Trackmania, FIFA, and SuperSmash Bro's Ultimate and their signing of a 2nd tier Rocket League side shows the growing strength of the game as an esport.

 The organisation built a fanbase through the use of live streams from the team house during tournaments and events. Whereas players would traditionally stream live to their own channels Solary curates their own feed. This has led to issues with some players, the recent move of Fortnite players Karim "Airwaks" Benghalia and Nicolas "Nikof" Frejavise to rival French org Renault Vitality rumoured to be in part because of Solary's demands around streaming. 

The Rocket League Rival series is a 10 team league run in both North America and Europe, that sits directly below the premier RLCS competition, teams can gain automatic promotion to the RLCS by finishing 1st during League Play, with another route being through the Promotion Playoffs which sees the 2nd and 3rd place teams from the RLRS play the 8th and 9th placed teams from the RLCS for a place in top tier.
