I was recently asked, "Who would your all-RLCS team be?"
And that seemed like an interesting question to look at during the midseason break. Here's how my perfect five-man roster would line up: three starters and two subs.
Nicolai "Snaski" Vistesen Andersen
My very first player would be the rock that is Snaski, who leads the RLCS in saves per game and is one of the strongest in the world at absorbing pressure and turning it into offense quickly. While Reunited might not be setting the world on fire, the trials and tribulations Snaski has faced in-game would make him the perfect foundation for this team.
Garrett "Garrettg" Gordon
Garrett comes in as the player who seems to be in the best overall form currently in RLCS. He averages the most scores per game (a metric based off every notable action taken in-game), and second in goals per game with 1.36. Garrettg has looked incredibly solid on Exodus and it's hard to choose just one player from the top North American team who all seem to be flying high.
Jayson "Fireburner" Nunez
To complete my lineup is the second North American player to make the list: Fireburner from NRG. He's scored more goals per game than anyone else in the world in the RLCS and yet he is 20th in overall shots taken per game. With the ability to get into position, Fireburner becomes the perfect player to cap off this team.
Remco "Remkoe" den Boer
Remkoe comes onto the bench just barely edged out by Fireburner. He's one of the best players in front of the goal and has shown an incredibly aggressive style so far. At the same time, he's also one of the people with least saves per game this season, so that means he comes in for one thing and one thing only: to score goals.
David "Deevo" Morrow
Deevo comes in due to being a very stellar overall player, and the top assister in the RLCS so far. He's also close to one of the most impressive season wide stats in Rocket League, siting on .89 goals per game, 1.06 assists per game and 1.39 saves per game. That puts him closer than anyone else to average at least one goal, assist and save per game, a feat that hasn't been accomplished ever in the RLCS.
