Changes this season:

  • 16 teams invited to Showdown Finale
  • Showdown check-in is strictly on smash (we're removing the requirement to join our voice channels on discord)
  • 4 points per tournament participated in (up from 2 points)


To be able to play in any of our tournaments please make sure you have an account on smash.gg; for registration please head to http://vvv-gaming.com/rocket-league/register.  Registration opens at 9:00am EST on the day of the tournaments.

 


Supersonic Draft
When: Mondays @ 8PM  EST (5PM PST)  Check-in opens at 7:30PM EST and closes at 7:45PM EST
Where: vVv Discord Server  https://discord.gg/vvv-gaming  Discord Guide: http://www.vvv-gaming.com/discord
Format: 3vs3 - Double Elimination Tournament. Best of three in the winner's bracket and best of one in the loser's bracket until the last two matches which return to best of three. Captains are chosen at random (from volunteers) and each captain picks their teammates in a snake style draft.


Registration:

Visit http://vvv-gaming.com/rocket-league/register on the day of the tournament to register.  Must register on BOTH our form and the smash.gg page.  While signing up you will be able to volunteer to be a captain (ranks All-Star and higher).  If there are more volunteer captains than the total number of teams, the captains will be picked at random from the pool of volunteers.  If there are not enough volunteer captains, then the remaining number of captains needed will be chosen at random from the remainder of players.


Check-in:

Check-in opens at 7:30 PM EST and closes at 7:45 PM EST.  To check-in, players must join the voice channel labeled “Draft Check-In” on our discord server.  Players MUST STAY IN THIS CHANNEL until the announcement is made to switch to the “Captains” or “Draft Options” channel based on whether the player is a captain or draftable player.  A spreadsheet will be posted in the #rl-announcements channel that will allow them to see if they are a captain or player.  Players that leave the check-in channel for any reason will NOT be kept checked-in.


Draft Process:

Captains will take turns picking their teammates in a “snake-style” (A, B, C, C, B, A) draft until all teams have 3 players each. Participating with friends is encouraged, however, there is no guarantee that you will be on the same team. The captain’s name will serve as the team name on the smash.gg bracket and the players they draft will be added to their roster.  Voice channels will be created for each of the teams on our Discord server.

 


Supersonic Showdown

Registration:

Visit http://vvv-gaming.com/rocket-league/register on the day of the tournament to register.

Participating as an individual:

Registering as an individual is no longer an option in the Supersonic Showdown.  We do, however, provide a Free Agent sign-up form on our registration page as a helpful tool to find teammates to play with.  Another good place to ask for / communicate with possible teammates is via the appropriate channels located on our discord server.  

Participating as a team:

Once you register on the smash.gg event page, please make sure that your teammates accept their invites to the team before registration closes.  If you are seeking a third player for the evening, you can view the list of free agent players signed up at http://vvv-gaming.com/rocket-league/register and contact them to be part of your team for the evening.  You can also let people know you are looking for a third on our Discord server.

Check-in:

The check-in process is handled on the smash.gg event dashboard found by clicking the "Manage" tab when looking at the event you're registered for.  A complete rundown of how the smash dashboard works while playing in a tournament can be found by clicking here.
