Most important about this, is that there is no guarantee that you will get a drop. But the chances you’ll be getting one will only be higher if you continue to watch the stream during the weekend. There will be multiple drops this weekend. Starting this Friday. So link your accounts and watch the magic unfold! DO LOG IN on Twitch when the RLCS is playing!
And be sure to follow @RLCS and @RocketLeague on Twitter for the announcement for the Anniversary DLC that will be unveiled this weekend. It’s going to blow your minds away. And yes, that’s a fact.

Not kept promises and lack of communication between the org and the players led to the comeback of Cow Nose. What a time to be alive!
Niels Koek, the captain of Cownose (former Xedec), responded on Twitter on the matter. So did the org. Statements can be read down below:
We as a team have decided to part ways with Xedec Nation. This is because of a couple reasons. There are two main reasons behind this decision. One is the lack of communications between the owner of the organization and us the players. And second is the lack of agreement about our contracts on both sides.
I myself was confident that the problem would be resolved within reasonable time, but unfortunately it did not come to that. Therefore we decided to end our contracts completely and go on without Xedec Nation.
As many of you know, Xedec Nation (XN) rocket league parted ways from the actual @ organisation and this comes down to essentially two core reasons, which Nielkskoek already highlighted however not thoroughly, which is what I will do now because I think the rocket league community and XN fans deserve to know what is happening and I don’t want to deprive you of that right.
On February 21st, I announced the Rocket League line-up for Xedec Nation, which received massive support and I think restored a bit of faith in the organisation from their previous decision on a roster, and all was well and dandy. The boys had full faith in me that this would come through, and honestly, I had full faith that it would as well – however this is where it gets rather annoying.
Damian, or the CEO of Xedec Nation LLC, gave the green light – along with his business partner, to acquire a top tier Rocket League team and he would give them salaries as well as implement a bonus reward system for their placements and achievements within the professional scene. It was my job to manage this team, promote them on twitter and essentially ensure that everything was running smoothly and we were getting their name out there. There were times where I would message Damian at the start and get a response perhaps a day or two later, however as time moved on and as we got into March, myself along with his business partner Will and essentially the entire organisation was being left in the dark by Damian.
Unresponsive, non-verbal and essentially little to know management or leadership from the own CEO caused myself as well as the Rocket League team to feel rather uncomfortable about the signing of this team. The players had signed their end of the contracts and it was just resting on Damian to complete the forms and send them back, not so hard right? Well essentially he delayed and delayed and delayed and even now, after the due date for the first payment of the player salaries, he is unresponsive to me and probably has no idea that this rocket league line up has even parted ways with his organisation.
Zentox made it into League Play with a non-EU player in it’s team. That’s not how it works. @RLCS disqualified the team for this reason.
Red Eye, Leaf eSports, Copenhagen Flames and Penta now have a change to make League Play. To get there they will have to play a Tiebreaker Playoff.
That big NA upset that everyone was expecting is here. One bad day from Iris is all it takes. Selfless takes advantage and keeps the League play dream alive!
Iris was by many insiders tipped as a competetor for League Play and even tipped as one of the 4 NA teams to make LAN. A sad day for the Iris fans.
