This Sunday(7/3/22), the esports team Moist Esports won the Spring Major after facing Team Falcons in the final.
After falling into the lower bracket, Moist Esports had to face several teams, and they successfully did, until they caused a bracket reset. A bracket reset means that a contestant from the lower bracket won against the player from the main/higher bracket, so they play another game to decide who gets the major.
Moist Esports got into the lower bracket after losing to Version 1, but in the lower bracket, they not only won against Version 1 but also other big teams like Karmine Corp, Spacestation, and Team Liquid.
On the final lower bracket match, Moist Esports scored 4 against 0 of Version 1, followed by a 4 against 0 of Team Falcons for their bracket reset.
The fans awaited Team Falcons to play in this lan tournament, and they did show excellent performance, taking big teams out of the upper bracket.
Moist Esports and Team Falcons game had the fans' emotions at the peak during the entire match duration and sometimes during minutes of overtime while the two teams fought for a goal.
Not only in this specific game, but the Spring Major had several moments of goals taking around 10 seconds that changed the direction of the match.
On Twitch, the fans' viewership peaked at almost 200k viewers for the Rocket League category, according to sullygnome.
On the stage, both Team Falcons and Moist Esports had a great stage presence, the crowd had chants going on at all times, something you don't see in all esports.
The end of another great major
Joyo, vanilla, and rise take home the prize of $90,000 for Moist Esports.
Previously mentioned by moistcr1tikal, Moist Esports does not take a cut from the players on the prize.
The total prize for the RLCS Spring Major is $300,000, with $90,000 for first place.
This major featured the best players all around the world, rather than the best players of a specific region, so it was a display of mechanical skill and team play that the top-level Rocket League can offer.
