What an amazing time of year in the Tri-State area! Spring is turning to summer, school vacation is upon us and we are approaching many of the major esports events that will be held in New York City and New Jersey area. The first major event that will have a profound impact at Helix will be the Rocket League Championship Series World Championship being played at Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey from June 21st-June 23rd.
RLCS Season 7 Championship Event Overview:
This is the first time since Season 4 that the world championship is being hosted on the East Coast. The Top 12 teams from across the globe will battle in a round robin to advance to the group stage finals. The event will be played in the New Jersey Devil's home arena, the Prudential Center.
What is Happening at Helix During the Tournament?
Professional Organization Boot Camps: While we cannot yet announce who and when, we are partnering with 4 of the 12 teams competing in the world championship by hosting for their pre-tournament practice sessions and bootcamps at Helix eSports. These teams have chosen Helix because we are the only facility that can provide a professional-grade experience and private spaces for practice prior to competitions like the RLCS. We love working with competitive esports teams and organizations to host boot camps!
$500 Rocket League Duos Tournament with RGB Esports on Friday 6/21: With only 12 teams competing in Newark it is safe to say that not everyone of us can go for gold at the world championship. Fear not, we are hosting a Rocket League Duos tournament with a $500 prize pool on Friday Night, 6/21 at Helix eSports with our friends from RGB Esports. Our center is located within 10 miles of the Prudential Center and is less than a 20 minute ride or Uber! For more details and to register, click here!
Official Rocket League World Championship After Party at Helix & the Boulevard 6/23: We are excited to work with Psyonix & the larger Rocket League family to welcome all their staff, players, organizations and VIPs for a full center lock out of Helix and an amazing event in our upstairs event venue, the Boulevard. Sadly, this event is VIP access so start bugging your friends who know someone to get you on the list! Helix will be closed on Sunday 6/23 as a result of this party.
Finally, we will have all the matches streamed at Helix on Friday and Saturday. If you weren’t able to get a ticket but still want to come out, play Rocket League with friends and watch the best players in the world duke it out Helix is your destination. Watch parties are some of our favorite esports events.
We look forward to seeing you all this weekend.
