Last weekend, the Paris Saint-Germain eSports Rocket League team finished fifth in the RLCS Season 4 World Championships.
Just behind Cloud9 at the Rocket League Invitational in Toronto and then ESLCN champions at Paris Games Week, it’s in the shoes of rather serious contenders for the title that Thibault ‘Chausette‘ Grzesiak, Victor ‘Ferra‘ Francal and Dan ‘Bluey‘ Bluett traveled to Washington DC
A trend that was quickly confirmed with a victory against the Australians of Pale Horse eSports (3-0) but especially against Cloud9 (3-2), the tournament favorites. Dan ‘Bluey‘ Bluet described this very special moment: “The crowd was against us, it was one of the toughest games of my career. It was crazy, one of the best feelings in the world.”
In the semifinal, PSG eSports faced another big contender, the Europeans of Method. “The match was very defensive, with very few goals, every mistake could be fatal,” explains Victor ‘Ferra‘ Francal. Method eventually won 3-2 after a tough fight, and for Dan ‘Bluey‘ Bluett “we really believed in our victory until the end, it was extremely close.”
In the lower bracket, the Parisians had to tackle a complicated match against Americans G2 Esports transcended by the support from their fans: “we could not help but hear the crowd yell ‘let’s go G2’, it was destabilizing” explains Dan ‘Bluey ‘Bluett, “it was hard to come back in the game,” added his teammate.
It was at this game that the Paris Saint-Germain eSports finished its first season of the Rocket League Championship Series, during which the team was able to garner experience in large offline events and continue its ascent. For Victor ‘Ferra‘ Francal: “It was a good season. We have the potential to get exceptional results, but we still have regularity problems that we will have to work on. We have confidence for the future.
