RocKy qualifies for Berlin
For the first time in the official FIFA 2017 season, the best FIFA 2017 European players participated this Saturday, February 4th on the major stage of the FIFA Ultimate Team Championship Series. The highlight of this Championship were the 4 places for the world finals in Berlin (which will take place between the 19th to 21st of May) to be won on each platform.
The players - 16 on the Xbox One and 16 on the PlayStation 4 were divided into four pools of four. Among the contenders in the Xbox section was the newly crowned champion of the French stage at Olympia: Corentin "RocKy" Chevrey, who showed great shape since the beginning of the season. The Vitality player had once again stepped up to the challenge, with a playstyle full of twists and turns throughout the day.
The first challenge that RocKy faced was getting out of the Group of Death, which included two other players who were also heavy favorites to win the tournament: GorillA, Agge and Bullock . The competition was fierce, but not out of reach for our player, who despite having some difficulties in the beginning and serious moments of doubt, quickly recouped and showed what he is truly capable of. RocKy managed to get out of the group with a total of 5 points, following two draws (1-1) against Bullock and Agge and a victory against GorillA. Note that these last two were eliminated from the tournament and it was Bullock that left the group with our French player.

Well determined to go all the way to the title, RocKy started his quarterfinal winner bracket match against Englishman Harry, which he defeated with a score of 4 to 2, thus qualifying for the semi final, which he had lost to Tass in, particularly duo to an equalizing goal in the last moments of the regular time. A tough defeat, but it wasn't the end of the road for the Vitality player, due to the existence of the Loser Bracket.
Using his solid mentality, the 2 time defending French champion managed to recover immediately by defeating Bullock in the Loser Bracket quarter finals, then, after a suspenseful Loser Bracket semi final, managed to win 3-2 against RayZiaah . The same thing happend the the German Marlut, who was unable to stop the French on his quest to seek revenge in the grand finals against Tass.
Having already qualified for Berlin already, RocKy headed into the finals seeking to win the title of European Xbox Champion in the first season of FUT Champions. The match unfortunately turned to the advantage of his opponent . who went undefeated this Saturday in Paris. Despite the disappointment for his defeat in the finals, RocKy succeeded in making his name of the international stage, winning over many famous opponents, showing his great form on FIFA 17. He will have the opportunity to have a shot at another title in the German capital from May 19th to 21st at the FIFA Ultimate Team Championship Series.
