The Rocket League Rival Series, also known as the RLRS, is the Psyonix funded Rocket League league and the second division of the RLCS. The RLRS was added to the RLCS in Season 4. From Season 4 to 7, 8 teams from North America and 8 teams from Europe were put in a Round Robin League Play to decide the Top 2 that will advance to the 'Promotion Playoffs' stage to take on the bottom 2 teams of the RLCS of that season. The bottom 2 from the Promotion Playoffs stage goes back down to the RLRS. The bottom 4 of the season in League Play is relegated from the RLRS and must re-qualify via Open Qualifiers and Play-Ins during the next season. Places 3 and 4 from League Play receive a spot in the next RLRS season. The Rival Series went through minor changes in Season 8, as the number of teams per region has extended from 8 to 10.[1] Because of this, a new stage has been added to the division with the Regional Playoffs. The Top 4 teams from League Play play in a double elimination Page Playoff Bracket to decide the Top 2 teams from RLRS to advanced to the Promotion Playoffs. The eliminated teams along with the teams finishing 5th and 6th in League Play retain a spot in the next season of the division leaving the bottom 4 being forced to requalify. With RLCS expanding to 10 teams in Season 9, the Rival Series has went through another minor format change, scrapping Regional Playoffs and going back exclusively to League Play with an expanded length of 8 weeks. The winner of League Play auto-promotes to RLCS with 2nd and 3rd proceeding to Promotion Playoffs.

Team Participation - League Play[edit]

Up to RLRS Season 9, 80 teams have participated in the League Play stage of RLRS around the world.

As the Rival Series was introduced in Season 4, all teams qualified for this season via the RLCS Play-Ins, ending up with Top 8 teams from each region who have failed to qualify to the RLCS at that time. This thus changed once the RLRS settled to be in its 2nd RLCS season typically offering only 4 RLRS spots from Play-Ins due to Promotion Playoffs spots and teams ending up finishing 3rd and 4th (in seasons 4-7, 5th and 6th in Season 8 and 4th-6th from Season 9 onwards) in the previous season of RLRS.

No teams have managed to participate in all seasons of RLRS; 17 teams participated in 2 seasons, 10 from North America - Splyce, Incognito, The Peeps, Manhattan, Compadres, Afterthought, Upper90 Esports, The D00ds, Charlotte Phoenix and Chaos Esports Club - and 7 from Europe - The Juicy Kids, Team Secret, ARG, Triple Trouble, Servette Geneva Esports, RCD Espanyol and Team Vertex. RBG Esports and Baguette Squad participated in 3 seasons of RLRS. Only Method participated in 4 seasons of RLRS.
