As the most downloaded title of 2016 in the PlayStation Store, Rocket League has been taking the gaming world by storm. This is reflected in the strong competitive scene, with thousands of dollars at stake on a regular basis. NRG esports entered the scene by picking up the Urban Kings roster in 2016, and saw the team finish 1st in regular season before a battling finish at Worlds saw them take 5th place, a position they will be looking to improve upon in RLCS Season 3.
A strong unit already, the roster was updated with Orbit's MVP Garrett 'GarrettG' Gordon joining the team in January 2017, replacing Sadjunior. In January 2018 another change was made when jstn. joined the team after Jacob departed NRG.
