RLCS 2021-22 - Winter: APAC S Regional, MENA Regional, OCE Regional, NA Regional (Rocket League 351) event 2 will begin tomorrow on January 28.
The RLCS 2021-22 season began in 2021 and continues into 2022. With more regions and a new format, this season marks the most significant changes to the RLCS system ever.
Each of the three splits (Fall, Winter, and Spring) has three regional competitions building up to one international major.
Each team earns points in each of these tournaments, which determine whether they qualify for the World Championship or the World Championship Wildcard.
All splits this season have a different format. For example, in the Fall Split, the regions competed in a Swiss format with an eight-team single-elimination bracket. The Spring Split will be played in the Double Elimination Bracket format.
In the Winter Split, there are four groups in each region. The playoffs will be played in a double-elimination bracket. There are a total of eight regions in RLCS 2021-22 and the regions involved are the same in all splits.
Teams that qualify for the majors from the splits and can score higher points in the majors than the previous regional events.
When the three splits are over and the majors are done, the end of the road is the RLCS World Championship. These splits are just the beginning. The prize pool for the RLCS WC will be $2,085,000.
