If you haven’t heard of the incredible success of Rocket League as an esport yet, you will very soon. Citing a recent article published on The Esports Observer, Rocket League boasts a total of 25 million active players with over 1 billion matches played in just under a year and a half since it’s release. Tournaments of all sizes are popping up and with the inception of the RLCS (Rocket League Championship Series) and a total prize pool of $250,000, it’s time for mYinsanity to enter the arena.
No one would have thought that our StarCraft 2 Team Manager, Mark “Yogmark” Meijdam would one day announce at a mYinsanity staff meeting that he and two friends were now ranked in the top 1% of all European Rocket League teams. He did however, and that is the short but sweet story of how we came across these three guys full of potential. Please join mYinsanity in welcoming our newest players, Mark “Yogmark” Meijdam, Ben “Unibear” van der Kooij and Marcel “Killscarted” de Ruiter all hailing from The Netherlands!
We are happy to join mYinsanity as their new team expansion. Rocket League is one of the new booming esport titles, and it is a good sight that more and more organizations are noticing that as well and are picking up teams.
We recently formed our team with the goal of simply participating in online cups and offline events. We have quickly moved up into the champion rank, and we are not stopping there. Our first event will be April 14th-16th at , please cheer for us.

It’s pretty clear that Rocket League hasn’t reached it’s full potential as an esport, the pure simplicity and excitement of every match leads me to believe that this game will be a serious contender for many sponsor and investment opportunities.
I couldn’t be happier that we managed to find a team who’s goals are in line with mYinsanity’s, and the fact that we already have a healthy relationship with Mark. I can’t wait to see how far these three can go now with the support we can offer them, along with our sponsors G2A, Logitech G, Esport Clothing and Twitch. 2017 is shaping up to be a very pivotal year in mYinsanity’s history!
