After transferring their Rocket League roster to Shopify Rebellion in April of 2021, the Kansas City Pioneers have already signed a new team: the former Continuum. This consists of Rocket League legend Cameron “Kronovi” Bills, as well as Cole “Astroh” Bowen and Daniel “Aeon” Dunfee.
The Contiuum name first surfaced in 2019, with Astroh and Aeon as its founders. Since then, the two have been picked up and dropped by organizations various times. The last instance was in November of 2020. Two months later, they were joined by the fan-favorite veteran Cameron “Kronovi” Bills, who had taken off a split to decide his next steps.

KC Pioneers return to Rocket League with a downgraded team
While each player has a proven track record, KC Pioneers has taken a risk by signing the Continuum roster. The team has not had many good results in the RLCS X, having ended the season in 24th place in North America. For the spring split alone, the team finished in 21st place. All in all, they have not looked like a contender for the top spots.
However, perhaps Kronovi is capable of leading the team back from the rut. The 23-year-old won the first Rocket League Championship Series (RLCS) World Championships in 2016 and has worn a legendary status since the esport’s inception. While he was unable to make a large impact during the spring split, a summer of practice might be what the team needs ahead of RLCS Season 11.
“Super excited I can finally share this with y’all,” Kronovi Tweeted. “This is just the very beginning for us.”
After failing to rise to the same heights as Season 1, Kronovi was featured on several teams with varying success. However, the veteran’s drive is not killed so easily; despite a disappointing spring split, he seems poised to prove doubters wrong.
