As the Winter Split Majors get ever closer, we have finally received the selection of groups and teams that will be competing. RLCS 2021-22 is finally starting to pull the Championship Series out of the Covid-19 pandemic, with the Winter Split Majors reintroducing a live audience for the first time since pre-Covid times. It's exciting, and considering the selection of teams that we will be seeing compete, we're in for a pretty solid show.
Last week, both Team Queso and FURIA launched their way into the RLCS 2021-22 Winter Split Majors, following Version1, Team BDS and NRG in prior weeks. It has been a good competition, with some teams doing far better than could ever have been anticipated when the Fall Split began back in October 2021. It's a shame, though, that our buddies over at Karmine Corp haven't done so crash hot. Check out our interview with Stake from back in September 2021:

Keep in mind, before we begin, how the Winter Split Majors will actually work. The group stages will be audience-free, before the grand finals and qualifying rounds take place in front of a live audience in Los Angeles. Yes, we're aware that there couldn't be anything more cliché than a nice big live event in forking L.A., but let's be really honest with each other: is there anything original about Rocket League or the RLCS? We jest...
RLCS 2021-22 Winter Split Major Groups
The following are the Groups that will be participating in the first stage of the RLCS 2021-22 Winter Split Majors. We have broken them up into all four separate groups and their respective teams, as according to information provided by Rocket League Esports on Twitter.
|Group B||Group C||Group D|
|Team Queso||The General NRG||G2 Esports||Dignitas|
|FaZe Clan||Team Endpoint||Team BDS||Sandrock|
|Detonator||Furia||Evil Geniuses||Spacestation Gaming|
These four different groups will compete against each other, narrowing down the overall victors before heading into those final, fantastic and delicious rounds. This is a pretty interesting selection of teams from right across the world, from the North American Regionals, South American Regionals, EMEA Regionals and Oceania Regionals. Are you hyped? We are!
