From Trash to Treasure: The Raccoon’s Miracle Run to Worlds

The Karlsruhe Institute of Technology Rocket League team, the KIT SC Lawnmowers, have had a very interesting season. After qualifying for the Group Stage of the EURC, they were able to win 6/9 of the series within their group, taking 4th place in group A and qualifying for the Playoffs. Going into the playoffs, they were 21 seed, but they remained undefeated until the Upper Semi-Finals where their win streak came to an end at the hands of Berlin Phoenix. However, KIT still had some fight left in them and were able to win the Lower Quarter-Finals, which automatically placed them in the top 4 for the EURC 2022 season. Despite losing again in the Lower Semi-Finals and being eliminated from the Playoffs, their top 4 spot granted them qualification for the CRL World Championship.

Revitalized Hamburg Takes the CRL World Stage

The University of Hamburg Rocket League team returned to EURC 2022 this year with their best roster yet. So good, in fact, that they are coming into the CRL World Championship as the 14th seed team. Hamburg has less LAN experience than the other German teams accompanying them, making them a wildcard in terms of receiving a LAN buff. Despite this, Hamburg have plenty more going for them as they prepare to take on the World Stage the best they can.

Keele Krakens Take a Crack at CRL World Championship Title

The Keele Krakens Rocket League team shot up in performance through the course of the latest NSE and EURC seasons. Their captain, Kay3, has been competing in university events since starting school in 2019. In the early days he was joined by Poddy and Timeconstant. But one day in 2020 Timeconstant couldn’t play, and Dooz stepped on the pitch to fill in. He became a permanent fixture and Timeconstant moved to the sub spot to create the Keele roster we know and love. Now, just a year and a half later, Keele are taking on their biggest challenge yet at a team: CRL Worlds.

Northwood University: The NA CRL Champs Take on Worlds

Northwood University needs no introduction, but I’ll give one anyway. Coming into CRL Worlds as the number one North American team, they have quite the reputation to live up to. Muttering the name “Northwood” will send shutters down any opponent’s spine. Does any other team even have a chance?
