By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Another big weekend for some of our Esportia teams.

Espanyol is still undefeated with 14 victories in a row,

after beating Team Vertex and RJM in the RLRS this weekend.

This win got Espanyol up to #12 on the Rocket League World rankings and #6 in Europe (as of yesterday).
In FIFA, Cone played the eCopa finals in Madrid
representing Espanyol and became the new Xbox Champion beating the legendary Zidane10 in the final. He then lost in the grand final against the PS4 Champion, JRA from Racing Club de Satander,
he is still a possible representative for the Spanish Xbox selection in the eNations Cup.

As for Barça, the “blaugranas” had the very hard task of defeating Dignitas,
who were undefeated in the Rocket League Championship Series (RLCS) league play. There was a lot of expectation around this match, as the two teams have become big rivals in the past year following Barça’s defeat to them last season dropping them out of contention for the World Championships.
The final result was 3-2 to Dignitas reflects how close both teams still are. Following on Monday Barça esports did their homework
and beat Team Singularity 3-2. This victory leaves them in 5th position in the RLCS.

As for Getafe, “Eltito” also made it to the eCopa regional final in Madrid.
After a great performance in the eCopa qualifying he couldn’t stop the player from Numancia, MarcosBullten, who won the match 2-0.

The pericos, a team managed by Esportia, beat the FC. Barcelona eSports at the semifinal, and ARG at the big final, winning the ESL Masters Spain for the first time after only 6 months competing in Rocket League.

Both FCB and ARG compete on the main european leagues RLCS and RLRS, respectively. 

Last saturday at Madrid Games Week, one of the main national events in the industry, Espanyol didn’t start as a favorite to win the title. 

The “pericos” came in the 4th position, and were up against the reigning champion and big favorite, FC Barcelona, a more experienced team with a bigger budget.

The semi-final was a BO5 and it started off very balanced, with connectivity problems for both sides. FCB won the first game by a very tight 3-2, but RCDE never stopped believing and turned it around on the second and third matches with a double 1-3. 

On the 4th game Barça was ahead again but a magical goal from captain Stake just 27 seconds before the end of the match brought back the hope to RCDE, and when there were only 9 seconds left on the clock Nachitow scored! 

It was the end of the dream for the culés, they failed to reclaim the title, and a fresh new beginning for Espanyol de Barcelona. 

But if the semi-final against FCB was an emotional rollercoaster, the BO7 final against ARG was a heart attack! 

The teams played all 7 matches with 4 overtime periods. Tied at 3-3, Espanyol took the last game with a total of 11 goal shots and and goal for each team member.  

Espanyol is the new official champion and Zamué was nominated MVP of the finals. 

This trophee is the result of a big team effort and a true champion attitude of never giving up no matter what. 

Stake (captain), Zamué (MVP), and Nachitow, along with the coach Arleyobi, have made history for RCD Espanyol de Barcelona.
