2020 RLO MASTERS NOVEMBER FINALS PRIMER
Its time to pack your bags and get the show on the road as the 2020 RLO Masters November Finals are about to kickoff! Here’s everything you need to know about this month's finals.
QUICK RUNDOWN ON THE RLO MASTERS
Sponsored by Psyonix, the RLO Masters hosts a multi-division monthly tournament circuit featuring two division's, the Open and Masters. The Open division challenges new and upcoming talent that are looking to level up their skills. The Master's division sees the battle of the OCE titans, week in, week out.
After 4 weeks of competition, the Monthly finals brings the top 8 teams from each division. the Open Division teams will be competing for their spot in the Master's Division, whilst the Master's Division teams will be fighting to be crowned Oceania's November Masters!
WHICH TEAMS ARE COMPETING?
In the Master's division, all of the fan favourites are here! After 4 weeks of competition, the Renegades have taken 3 of the weekly titles. While they are second on the leaderboard in terms of Circuit Points, they are definitely one of the favoured teams to win the November championship.
With Mindfreak, Dire Wolves and R!OT Gaming all qualifying within 20 Points of each other, they will be looking to prove themselves by climbing up the ladder and maybe even securing a monthly championship.

In the Open division, you may see some familiar faces, one of those being Vort Central, the current 6th placed team in RLCS X. They have officially started their journey through the Open Division, after declining their invitation into the Master's last month.
Although Southern Stars ceased their operations last week, the team will be sticking together under the new name 'Apples are Sour'!
Additionally, Team Fenrir, previously known as Calciyum, will be one of the favoured teams to take the event after garnering 492 Open Circuit Points this month.
