In 2015, Flipside acquired the roster from the team Teamy Weamy. On August 7, 2016, Flipside lost to iBUYPOWER Cosmic in the very first Rocket League Championship Series finals, placing second. Shortly after Michael "M1k3Rules" Costello left the team and was subsequently replaced by Marius "gReazymeister" Ranheim from Northern Gaming. On December 4, 2016, Flipside defeated Mockit Aces to win the Rocket League Championship Series for Season 2.

On February 28, 2019, it was announced that the roster that had won WSOE 4 a month prior had chosen to not re-sign with Flipside. With the departure of the roster, it was also announced that Flipside would not be participating in RLCS Season 7, ending the reign of the longest standing organization within Rocket League.[10]
