With that said, you have questions and we have answers so without further ado, here's everything you need to know about the Twitch Rivals Rocket League NA Showdown.

The Twitch Rivals Rocket League NA Showdown will be a one-day event held on 17th August 2021 starting at 1:00 pm PDT.

Twitch Rivals Rocket League NA Showdown format

Just like the old continent, the North American region will follow a challenge format called 'Heats' after captains select their rosters from the crew draft at the start of the event.

Heats

  • Each one has pre-assigned matchups.
  • Teams earn 1 point per Heat win.
  • Team lineups
    • “Lineups” for each Heat are decided by captains immediately preceding the game
    • Each player must play in at least 4 individual Heats
    • All lineups per Heat are “blind pick”, meaning the lineups are both unveiled simultaneously to the other team
    • Max 1 pro per lineup
  • Top-2 in points advance to Finals
    Tiebreaker: Games won in games between tied teams

Finals

  • Best of 5
    • Game 1: Chat vote
    • Games 2-5: the losing team of the previous game picks the mode
