We Dem Girlz is a European Rocket League team. Acquired by Northern Gaming on 28th July 2016, the European team revived during August 2018.

History[edit]

The Original Team[edit]

Heading into the first qualifier for RLCS, We Dem Girlz were a powerhouse team in Europe, having consistently been won weeklies and monthlies. However, they would have to compete against long-time rivals FlipSid3 Tactics for the important #1 seed in Europe. Both teams breezed into the playoffs of the first qualifier, and in the Grand Finals WDG would lose 4-2, losing out on $2000 and 140 qualification points. In the second qualifier the team would fare better, once again cruising through league play before Flipsid3 were upset by Supersonic Avengers. However, immediately after this WDG found themselves 3-0 down to Mock-It eSports EU. Despite having their backs against the wall, We Dem Girlz managed to pull through, reverse-sweeping Mock-It and then defeating Supersonic Avengers in order to secure the first seed at the Season 1 LAN Finals. Before the LAN started, the team were acquired by Northern Gaming and went on to finish in 3rd place.

The Revival[edit]

After Envy decided to relocate all of their teams to the USA, they ended up releasing their Rocket League team, who would once again go by the name We Dem Girlz. Despite being reverse-swept by the red-hot Triple Trouble in Rocket Baguette's The Play, the team would make it to the Grand Finals of Rewind Gaming's Colosseum, where they beat fellow RLCS team Fnatic before losing 4-3 to PSG Esports in the final game. Despite a shaky finish to RLCS League Play, where they dropped out of Europe's top 2, the team would easily defeat mousesports in a 4-0 sweep, before once again defeating F3. However, in the EU Regional Finals they would meet world champions Team Dignitas, who would dispatch of them in another 4-0 sweep. This meant that WDG headed to LAN Vegas as Europe's 2nd seed. At the world championship they would first have to face Cloud9, who they beat in an intense game 5 overtime. After sweeping Chiefs, WDG would once again face the re-branded Dignitas in the upper-bracket final, where they would go down 4-1. In the lower-bracket final, they had to face C9 once again, who were on an incredible lower-bracket run having beaten Tainted Minds, NRG Esports, F3 and Chiefs. This time C9 proved to be too strong, taking the series 4-2 before winning the championship over Dignitas in the grand final. This meant that We Dem Girlz walked away from Vegas in 3rd place, earning $60,000 in prize money, as well as cementing all 3 players among the top players in the world, with 8 top-3 finishes between them.

The ELEAGUE Cup[edit]

Because of their Top 8 placement in RLCS Season 6, We Dem Girlz received an invitation to participate in the second edition of the ELEAGUE Cup. Coming from a 3rd place finish in the LAN Finals 3 weeks earlier, the team were the favourites coming in their first match against FlipSid3 Tactics. However, this match didn't go as planned and they got knocked into the lower bracket after a 4-2 loss, facing elimination. Their next match was against a boiling hot Evil Geniuses who almost took down the european powerhouse, and one of the favourites, Dignitas in a nailbiting 7 game series. With the odds against them, they managed to eliminate Evil Geniuses from the competition with a 4-2 win and moved on in the lower bracket's finals for a rematch against the team who beat them earlier, FlipSid3 Tactics. The boys started the match slowly and FlipSid3 took a 3-1 lead, putting Remkoe's, EyeIgnite's and Metsanauris' backs against the wall. The team didn't give up on their chances and managed to win 3 games in a row, all of them with a 1-0 final score, taking the 4-3 win which put them through to the playoffs. Their first match on day 3 was against the North American powerhouse NRG Esports. With the odds against them, the underdogs would have to make another upset to advance to the grand finals. With a shaky start, the team managed to upset everyone and defy the odds once again knocking down NRG and advancing to the Grand Finals. In that final match, they faced off against the favourite of the tournament. The team who won the RLCS Season 6 LAN Finals, the giants, the Dignitas slayers, Cloud9. They were, once again, forced to upset everyone in order to bring home the trophy. The task didn't look easy as Cloud9 were the clear favourites with 83% of the votes. Surprisingly, the 'Boys in Black' took an early 3-0 lead in the match and looked for the sweep. They lost game 4 with a score of 4-1. Coming into game 5, they pressed the gas pedal and obliterated Cloud9 with a 7-1 Brazil win. We Dem Girlz are the 2nd ELEAGUE champions following G2 Esports' success in 2017 and now crowned as the best team in the world. This was Remkoe's second major LAN finals win after winning RLCS Season 3 LAN Finals with Northern Gaming. This was EyeIgnite's first ever LAN major finals win and marked the end of the 'second place curse' from Metsanauris. The 'Boys in Black' are now better than ever and established themselves as the team to beat in Rocket League Esports.
