eChampions League (May 27)
Mode: double elimination
RBLZ Players: Umut “RBLZ_Umut” Gültekin
Prize pool: 262,300 euros approx.
Call it a sweep! With a dominant victory (three games, 17:6 goals) in the previous round of the top 32, “RBLZ_Umut” made his first title claim. “In this condition, he can beat any of the other seven entrants,” says Daniel Fehr, who will travel to Stockholm with his protégé on Wednesday.
Many in the FIFA community talk about a German festival in the Space Arena. Rivals like Ali “PredatorFIFA” Oskoui Rad (SV Werder Bremen), Daniel “Denii10” Mutic (1. FC Heidenheim) and Laurin-Noah “SNakez” Bartsch (VfL Bochum) know “RBLZ_Umut” from numerous Virtual Bundesliga matches and other national tournaments.
The triple term is not very common in eSports, but perhaps we are the ones who give it shape.
VBL Grand Final (June 4/5)
Mode: Swiss System + Simple Elimination
RBLZ Players: Umut “RBLZ_Umut” Gültekin, Richard “RBLZ_Gaucho10” Hormes
Prize pool: €100,000
Some 1,400 kilometers from Stockholm, the RBLZ will continue their quest for the title. Venue: The XPOST in Cologne! Will “RBLZ_Umut” and his teammate Richard “RBLZ_Gaucho10” Hormes hand out some FIFA packs in the final two-day event at the old postal distribution center? “As the defending champion, you have more and more pressure, but Umut is a player who often performs even better in such situations,” says Daniel Fehr of the starting position.
Split between the two consoles, 16 players compete against each other in the VBL Grand Final. After five rounds of Swiss, the top eight players on each platform will qualify for the knockout stage. A clash between the two RBLZ players would only be possible in the cross-console final. “As strong as the field of entrants is, a lot has to fit together for both guys to make it to the final,” says the RBLZ coach, who sees the toughest competitors in Mustafa “fcsp_musti” Cankal and the finalist of the Last year Dylan “DullenMIKE” Neuhausen. .
