The final decisive Rocket League round of the Telialiga’s spring season has been completed. There was tension all the way in, and in the end it was Senja who ran away with the last playoff spot ahead of Major.
Thus, it will be Mustu Fluck, Rotaryon, AW3 and Senja who will travel to Stavanger on Friday 12 May to choose a series champion.

Alongside the battle for fourth place, the ninth round also dished up a potential preview of the playoffs. In the match between Mustu Fluck and Rotaryon, it was the former who ran away with the victory, and Sondre “Enlid” Enlid and company thus secured an undefeated season.
– Going undefeated through the season is of course very nice, but it was also what we expected of ourselves. So now there is full focus on the weekend in Stavanger, reported a confident Enlid.
As top of the table, Mustu Fluck gets the honor of choosing his opponent in the first semi-final. Not entirely unexpectedly, “Enlid” confirmed to Gamer.no that the choice falls on the fourth-place team Senja, who admittedly proved that they can hang with the best when the team beat AW3 earlier in the season.
Senja also brings a solid dose of confidence into the playoffs.
– I am proud of the boys’ effort. Never thought we would end up in the play-offs before the season, since we were actually supposed to play in the 2nd division. So I am very happy and looking forward to playing at Spillexpo in Stavanger. I think it will be smoother than what people expect, said Senja captain Teodor “Tempo” Myklebust.
Sindre Stien/Good Game
Based on “Enlid’s” statement, the second semi-final is then between Rotaryon and AW3. Both teams finished on 21 points with a positive match difference of 15, but based on the head-to-head, it is perhaps the reigning league champion who has a slight mental advantage.
AW3 recovered well after an unexpectedly weak start to the season. Sebastian “Seeb” Falch is not so sure whether the guys are back for good, but the goal for the playoffs is at least clear.
– Now we have sharpened up a bit and got things a bit more in place. We will not leave Stavanger without that trophy, Falch stated.
Sindre Stien/Good Game
After a solid first half of the season, Rotaryon suffered two defeats in their last four matches – including the aforementioned match against AW3 and against Mustu Fluck. However, Dennis “Pablobar” Bojesen believes that the guys can get revenge on the Spillexpo stage.
– We are ready for the playoffs and feel we have the upper hand on LAN, said a concise Bojesen to Gamer.no.
The four teams now embark on two weeks of preparations to perform as strongly as possible in Stavanger. We’ll be back with a more comprehensive look at each of the teams a little closer to the playoffs.
Push up and down
While the top teams turn their noses towards the play-offs, others feel the joy and disappointment associated with promotion and relegation. From the 1st division, Horizon and Playwell disappear, while Cor3 and Razzle Dazzlers make the trip up to next season.
Fact Revolution will have to fight for their place in the top division, as they have to play in the qualifiers against 5Stars.
