NRG, the North American RLCS team that has reigned supreme over the region for years, fails to make it to the Spring Split London Major.
Their disappointing performance during the first two RLCS 2021-22 Spring Split regional events put them in a tough spot this weekend. NRG had to survive and make it to Championship Sunday if they hoped to qualify for the London Major.

However, the poor performance that plagued the team this entire split continued to haunt them in the third and final RLCS 2021-22 NA regional event.

Following their loss to FaZe Clan in the upper bracket, NRG had to face off against Complexity. The veteran team found themselves in a do-or-die situation. They had to win their match-up against Complexity to survive and keep their chances to qualify for the Major alive.
But NRG failed to finish with a 2 game lead in the best of 5 series. Complexity fought back valiantly and brought the series to a dramatic game 5.
And NRG’s hopes and dreams were shattered when Complexity managed to take the lead in game 5 with very little time remaining on the clock.
NRG Fail To Make It To London Major
The team’s abysmal performance had put them in a do-or-die situation in RLCS Nissan Classic. And NRG failed to show up one too many times. After their early exit from RLCS Nissan Classic on Day 1, NRG could not qualify for the Spring Split London Major.
While NRG’s failure to qualify for the Major was disappointing, it was the fact that this would be the first RLCS LAN event where GarretG wouldn’t be participating that hurt NRG fans the most.
However, this isn’t the end for NRG. They have already qualified for the RLCS 2021-22 World Championship. While they would have to watch the Spring Split Major from the sidelines, they will be in the center of all the action in Fort Worth, Texas.
Let’s hope that the team figures out what’s wrong and can bounce back from this split’s poor performance. Because if they don’t, the other teams at the World Championship will chew them up and spit them out with no difficulty.
