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. 8 teams from North America and 8 teams from Europe are 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.

Team Participation - League Play[edit]

Up to RLRS Season 6, 42 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 the previous season of RLRS.

No teams have managed to participate in all seasons of RLRS; only 6 teams participated in 2 seasons, 3 from North America - Splyce, Incognito & Manhattan - and 3 from Europe - The Juicy Kids, Method & Team Secret.
