Renault Vitality has obliterated any kind of opposition in the European Rocket League Spring Series this weekend. Coming through the upper bracket, they left rookie team The Clappers in their wake, followed by a reverse sweep against Mousesports, a quick 4-1 against a revitalized Endpoint, and finally destroyed rivals Dignitas in the Grand Finals.
Renault Vitality are the European Spring Series champions
Like in the North American grand final, it was quick work for the upper finalist. With a game-win advantage from coming through the upper bracket, Renault Vitality crowned themselves EU Spring Series champions after three convincing wins.
Renault Vitality have been a top team since RLCS Season 7 when they picked up Alex “Kaydop” Courant and went on to win the world championship, followed by a runner-up spot in Season 8. They continued on their rampage with their new third, Yanis “Alpha54” Champenois, and ended in first place in the league play portion of RLCS Season 9 and a second-place finish in the Regional Championships.
Vitality are not showing any signs of slowing down. In fact, they’re speeding up. The Spring Series proves that Vitality remains at the top of Europe, despite losing the Regional Final to Dignitas. But Dignitas couldn’t keep up with Vitality this time. Having lost their very first series, Dignitas made a long lower bracket run all the way to the grand final, only to get completely outclassed by Vitality.
Spring Series Champions 🔥🏆 Really proud of the team 💪 #VforVictory

“I lose every final,” the three-time world champion — and now Spring Series champion — Kaydop jokingly said in the post-match interview, having lost the previous two finals. “So finally, to win a final is good. I think I was more motivated. Alpha is insane, to be honest. I don’t know how many goals he scored, but it’s crazy. It’s good to be on his team.”
When asked whether there is any team that scares Kaydop, the answer was clear: “G2. They won the (North American) Spring Series, so they would be our best opponent.” Both teams overwhelmed the opposition in their respective Spring Series regions and obliterated the grand final with 4-0 sweeps.
So hopefully, we’ll get to see the two battle it out in the not-too-distant future. After all, in analyst Randy “Gibbs” Gibbons’ words, there is more coming — Rocket League is not going anywhere.
