Rocket League BDS Decal

The first Rocket League Major of 2021 is just around the corner, with the best of the best in Europe battling it out from February 20. Each team went through a rigorous process to qualify for the event, covering multiple weeks of competition in regional tournaments and “The Grid” events.

Now, we are set to see the highest stakes event of 2021 so far, which will no doubt bring us a ton of exciting games and many wagering opportunities. If you’re new to Rocket League or just want to learn more about the game, make sure to check out our Rocket League guide, and let’s take an in-depth look at the EU Major.

Who’s Playing at the Rocket League European Major

We’ll see 12 of the best European Rocket League teams participating at this event, featuring most of the big favorites. Team BDS, Giants Gaming and Team Vitality headline the event and come in as the three biggest favorites, although we’ll also see the likes of Top Blokes, Team Queso and many more.

As usual, we jump straight into a double-elimination bracket, meaning that one loss relegates teams to the lower bracket and a second loss eliminates them from the event. Additionally, the losers bracket finalist will have to defeat the winner’s bracket finalist twice in order to win the event.

Team BDS Looks For Back-to-Back Major Titles

Team BDS has been a dominant force in European Rocket League for a long time and heads into the event as reigning Major champions, having defeated Vitality in the grand finals of the Fall Major in October 2020.

They’ve also gotten off to a strong start in 2021, winning a regional event and two grid tournaments. It’s safe to say they’re still as good as ever and the new year isn’t slowing them down.

As such, they unsurprisingly enter as the favorites for this Major and are in prime position to claim another trophy. However, they will face some tough opposition and being the favorites no doubt will have a target on their backs.

Vitality Aims to Bounce Back

In 2019 and early 2020, Vitality was a solid contender for the best Rocket League team in the world. They won a European championship, the overall Season 7 championship, then placed second at the following three championships.

It was a team that could hardly be stopped and it always took the best of the best to challenge them. Since then, they’ve slowed down a bit, with a few spotty results seeing the team bounced around the rankings.

However, going into the new year, they’ve somewhat recovered, coming second in two minor events in a row. They’ll be looking to get back to their dominant form of old, and this is just the event to do it.

Is 2021 Giants Gaming Year?

Giants are a relatively new team to Rocket League, but a strong contender for the top spots nevertheless. They made their mark with a 5th-8th finish at the Fall Major and have been tearing up the competition since.

They’ve gathered high placings in all of their last few events, including taking games and even matches off the top dogs like BDS and Vitality.

Overall, Giants don’t quite seem like the best of the best yet, but they’ve certainly shown they can compete and all it takes is a good day or two for a huge upset to come through at the Major and pave the way for a great 2021 for the Giants.
