10. Chausette45

Thibault Grzesiak, French

A bit about Chausette45:

  • While many player pick their cars strategically, Chausette45 boasts the brand of the Fennec, a large, boxy SUV type car with 80’s aesthetics.
  • Fireburner, one of Chausette45’s opponents in a grand finale game, was in his final game against Chausette45. Fireburner lost, earning one last silver medal as he had many times before.
  • Chausette45 is incredibly capable at playing any part of the team, from offense to defense. He reads any play and shifts gears into a new play style instantaneously.

9. Chicago

Reed Wilen, American

A bit about Chicago:

  • Started only because it was a free to play game in PS4.
  • Chicago tends to play as a striker, scoring more of the goals for his team than not.
  • Chicago played on two different teams, Dignitas and Evil Geniuses, before joining G2, his esports club, before he’d turned 18.
  • When joining G2, Chicago replaced the former captain, Kronovi, who founded the team in the first place.
  • His average point score per game (not goals) was 649.75, his region had never gone over 500, and he led the league’s lower ranks in goals, assists, shooting percentage, and score, points.
  • Chicago is a fan of the Chicago Bulls… go figure.

8. JKnaps

Jacob Knapman, Canadian

A bit about JKnaps:

  • Fond of using double taps and air dribbles whenever he gets the chance, and is known to be incredibly aggressive.
  • Played alongside Kronovi in G2 for over 2 years before Chicago replaced Kronovi.
  • At one point, JKnaps wanted to quit and form a team with SquishyMuffinz and Torrent, in hopes of more success. His G2 contract kept him from doing that.
  • Now, even after coming just shy of winning tournaments, JKnaps is still considered by fans to be the one carrying the team.

  • Is a three time consecutive winner of the Rocket League World Champion Series, and is the only Rocket League player to have won four.

6. Rizzo

Dillon Rizzo, American

A bit about Rizzo:

  • His playstyle is incredibly conservative compared to the other players on this list. He focuses solely on lining up shots before taking them.
  • Rizzo started out by bringing a lower ranked team, Take 3, to the RLCS season 2 finals, attracting the attention of G2.
  • Played alongside JKnaps and Kronovi in their G2 team.

5. jstn

Justin Morales, American

A bit about jstn:

  • Justin started young, joining the NRG organization at the prime age of 15 thanks to his connections with SquishyMuffinz, a long time friend.
  • Many fans of the organization thought this was a wrong move, but jstn proved them wrong by aiding the NRG team to a 7-0 season sweep.
  • As the youngest player in the RLCS league, jstn’s parents are often on his back. They were at first incredibly skeptical about this, but have grown to support him over time.

  • GarrettG is the only player to have made it to every one of the RLCS LAN matches (playing in person), which happened right after Fireburner’s retirement.

  • He is the only player to have won the RLCS Regional Championship 5 times in a row

2. Kronovi

Cameron Bills, American

A bit about Kronovi:

  • He’d played Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket Powered Battle Cars, gaining an immense following from that before Rocket League was even a thing
  • Kronovi is one of the longest active players in the RLCS that has always had a position on a team. From season one on
  • He is also known as “The Mountain,” since many find him to be the mountain they have to climb in order to win.
  • Played for G2 for years before being replaced with Chicago, which wasn’t Kronovi’s decision. He found out from a different team manager that his team wanted to change. He made the decision to transfer to Rouge, and the rest is history.
  • Unlike other players, Kronovi also enjoys playing other games rather than grinding Rocket League. His other game choices are CS:GO and League of Legends.

1. SquishyMuffinz 

Mariano Arruda, Canadian

About SquishyMuffinz:

  • Started out of PS4, and was one of the last of his friends to switch over to PC.
  • Beat an incredibly stacked roster of Rocket League teams in an Atlanta tournament, which got the attention of Cloud9, the team he still plays for.
  • One of his team members for the RLCS tournaments he’s been in was a sub named Gimmick, but they played well, so they kept him.
  • Although they lost the game, It’s agreed that SquishyMuffinz’s aerial in game one of a lower bracket final is one of the most legendary aerials in Rocket League history.
  • The move mentioned above is one SquishyMuffinz invented himself.
