eLaLiga premiere, VFO cup and a bright start in the rival series
The Palacio de Neptuno in Madrid was the meeting point for the 34 clubs that will be part of the eLaLiga Santander. The 34 teams were represented by presidents, directors and CEOs. The event was also attended by Villarreal CF and Atletico de Madrid, the new clubs joining the eLaLiga this season.
After the event, the Kickoff took place, facing Cone against Vivi-Khofolo-I7I,from Valencia Powergym. The Perico player got the first victory scoring the only goal of the first match, but lost the second match. Everything was decided on overtime, where Cone wasn’t able to prevent Vivi from scoring two goals and getting the victory.
Regarding VFO, as we have informed a week ago, the Xbox squad has finally become absolute champion of the League with 21 wins, 4 draws, 1 single loss and 73 goals. Pupen was the best scorer (27 goals) and 10 times MVP, while Kawa won best defender and Estiven best goalkeeper, making Espanyol a solid 3 times champion in XBox.
But this is not the end yet as the XBox boys have also managed to reach the VFO cup final!
On the other hand, the PS4 team could not improve their negative performance and was relegated to the lower division.
Last but not least, the Rocket League Rival Series has finally begun this weekend.
Our team faced Triple Trouble, one of the favorites led by ex FC Barcelona player Bluey.
With an outstanding Tadpole, Triple Trouble won the first two games, 3-1 and 2-1 respectively.
When everything seemed hopeless, Espanyol woke up and started its counter attack with the unstoppable duo Zamué-Stake, while Tox turned into a human wall. And what a come back that was, ending 2-3 for RCD Espanyol.
This result confirms RCD Espanyol eSports as a serious candidate for the promotion to the Championship Series in season 10.
