Posted on August 10, 2022

The Rocket League Championship Series (RLCS) will host some exciting matches between some the very best teams that Rocket League esports have to offer in the coming days. The RLCS is heading into its 11th season with many deeming this the most competitive and exciting RLCS World Championship to date.

This piece will provide predictions for some of the matches that will be taking place 10 August, 2022, which includes the likes of FaZe Clan and G2 Esports, who are some of the most exciting teams that Rocket League esports has to offer.

When: Wednesday, August 10, 20:00 CEST

FaZe Clan head into this tie as the overwhelming favorites. They’ve won three of their last four matches and are one of the strongest sides in Rocket League esports. They’re always making it to the latter rounds of A-tier tournaments and won the RLCS 2021-22 – Spring: NA Regional Event 3 – Nissan Classic in May this year. In their last series, Gamers8 2022, they got a score of 1273.69 from 13 games, had a 69.23% win rate, averaged 2.85 goals, 2.23 assists, 4.69 saves and 9.62 shots per game.

The Club, on the other hand are a Brazilian Rocket League esports outfit that have been trying to make inroads recently. Their best achievement in the recent past was a 2nd place finish in the RLCS 2021-22 – Spring: SAM Regional Event 3. Earlier in the season, they were mostly taking part in D-Tier event but have no started taking part in A-Tier events, which shows the improvements they have made in a short time. So far, they have had a 59.26% win rate in RLCS World Championship, averaging 1.89 goals, 1.26 assists, 4.67 saves, and 7.22 shots per game.

There’s a real gulf in class between the two teams with the FaZe organization often expected to be at the very top of the esports leagues they participate in, whereas The Club are still trying to make a name for themselves in this Championship. This should be a fairly one-sided encounter with FaZe Clan to get the victory.

G2 Esports vs OpTic Gaming Prediction

Predictions: G2 Esports to win

Rocket League Odds: 1.23

Betting Site: Odds provided by GG.Bet

When: Wednesday, August 10, 18:00 CEST

This looks like an even more one-sided encounter. G2 Esports are also one of the strongest teams in Rocket League esports. They’ve won three S-Tier Rocket league events this year, including the RLCS 2021-22 – Winter Split Major. This just goes to show their pedigree.

During Gamers8 2022, they had a score of 1103.33 from 6 games with a win rate of 66.67%, averaged 1.50 goals, 1 assist, 5.67 saves and 8 shots per game. These are the sort of numbers only the very best sides put up.

OpTic Gaming took most of Team Envy’s members in 2022 after the two sides merged this year. The 7th place finish in the RLCS 2021-22 – Spring Split Major has been their only achievement of note this year. So far in the RLCS World Championship, they’ve been pretty impressive with a 58.33% win rate and a score of 10.63.21 from 24 games. They have also averaged 1.96 goals, 1.67 assists, 4.54 saves and 8.04 shots on average. OpTic Gaming remain a bit of an unknown quantity and seeing them battling it out in this competition will be a great source of intrigue.

They’ll need a lot more than that when they come against G2 Esports. G2 Esports are heading into the RLCS World Championship with the aim to win it all and in order to do that, they’ll have to dispatch teams like OpTic Gaming and do it convincingly so that they can take that momentum into the RLCS Main Event. Like the previous prediction, this one should also be fairly straightforward. We can’t see past a G2 Esports win.
