Photo Recap: Rocket League Championship Series 3 Finals

NZXT has been a proud supporter of the Rocket League Championship Series since Season 1. It’s truly been an honor to provide the world’s best Rocket League players with the equipment they need to compete at the highest level of gameplay. Whether it’s by building high-spec stage PCs, lending out free-play stations for fans,  or simply watching the action from the sidelines – we’re always excited to attend an RLCS event!

This RLCS event was bigger than ever as 10 teams competed over 3 days for a chance to win their part of a $150,000 prize pool. There were plenty of highlights inside the Wiltern Theater but in the end, it was Northern Gaming that prevailed and took home the coveted RLCS trophy and bragging rights until Season 4.

And with nearly 200,000 concurrent viewers on Twitch this past weekend, it’s pretty safe to say Season 4 will be even crazier!

Here’s a look at the action from the RLCS Season 3 Finals:
