Keep a Favorite Extra Mode in Rotation with Dueling Arcade Playlist!


Hey everyone!

Following the release of the Arcade Playlists, we saw a lot of feedback about the desire to more meaningfully influence the Extra Modes in these slots. And while we understand some players want their favorite modes in the game permanently, it’s important that we balance the number of active modes to ensure high quality matches and reasonable matchmaking times.

Today we’re excited to introduce the new Dueling Arcade Playlist system to help address the above feedback. This new system allows the community to keep a favorite mode in the game almost indefinitely! Like before, there are two Arcade Playlists that rotate through existing Extra Modes. With the new system, the most popular mode after a week will remain available the next week, while the less popular one will cycle out and return at a later date.


If the two Extra Modes are generally unpopular on a given week, we’ll replace both the next week with Extra Modes we expect will be more exciting to the community.

What if there’s an LTM active? The LTM will replace one of the Arcade Playlist slots and the dueling Arcade Playlists system will be paused.


The first two Extra Modes in this new system are Speed Demon and Rocket Labs Medley. We hope this system helps you get more play time with your favorite modes!

THE HEADLINES

  • v2.35 prepares Rocket League for the Mandalorian Mayhem Limited Time Event
  • 2024 Esports Shop Refresh

CHANGES AND UPDATES


NEW MINIMUM LEVEL FOR COMPETITIVE PLAYLIST



  • To ensure that players are spending a reasonable amount of time acclimating to Rocket League before jumping into the ranked experience, we changed the minimum level requirement for the Competitive Playlist to Level 20 (up from the previous level requirement of 10).
  • In addition, we have changed the design that previously allowed players to play ranked if they were partied with an individual above the minimum level requirement. Now, no player below the level threshold (20) will be able to enter the ranked experience.
    • Party leaders with a member below the level threshold will see their playlist locked and will need to queue in the Casual Playlist.
  • Updated Minimum Level Messaging - To convey these new restrictions, players will see new messaging in Rocket League when queuing for the Competitive Playlist.
    • While solo (not in a party) the new messaging will read: “You must be Level 20 or higher.”
    • While in a party, the new messaging will read: “All party members must be Level 20 or higher.”
    • These messages will be displayed to any player who is below Level 20 / any party leader in a party with someone who is below Level 20.

DISABLING “LEAVE TOURNAMENT” BUTTON AT END OF MATCH


  • In order to prevent players from receiving negative consequences, such as temporary bans from tournaments/matchmaking, or losing earned tournament rewards, we will now grey out/disable the “Leave Tournament'' button at the 0:00 gameplay mark of Tournament matches.
  • This will ensure your rewards are earned and all data is properly populated so you can jump right into your next match.

Higher Min Level for the Competitive Playlist and New Esports Shop Items Soon

As we’re a full month into the New Year, it's time for Rocket League’s first game update of 2024 and a look at some of what’s coming! Tomorrow’s game update adds a new anti-smurfing measure: a higher Competitive Minimum Level Requirement. The update also refreshes the Esports Shop for the Rocket League Championship Series (RLCS) 2024 Season. Read on for more details!
--

NEW MINIMUM LEVEL FOR THE COMPETITIVE PLAYLIST

We’ve seen a lot of community chatter lately around allowing players to bypass the minimum level required to play in the Competitive Playlist by partying up with other players. Smurfing is something that we know is frustrating, so we wanted to share a bit of the design philosophy behind that original decision and why we are making some changes in tomorrow’s update.

The Competitive Minimum Level Requirement was introduced when Rocket League became playable for free in 2020 and was meant to serve a couple of purposes. While we wanted to make it more difficult to smurf, one of the main goals was to make sure that new players were not blocked from playing with friends. The Casual experience back then was rife with early quitting and was considered by many as a less enjoyable experience.

We therefore made the decision to let players experience Rocket League in the best way possible at that time, with friends in the Competitive Playlist.

At that time we also started making changes to the Casual Playlist, with the goal of making it an equally enjoyable experience to Competitive play. We now feel we’ve reached that goal, and because of that, our thinking has changed around the need to allow players to bypass the Competitive Minimum Level Requirement.

In tomorrow’s update, the Competitive Minimum Level Requirement will be raised from Level 10 to Level 20, and now every player in a Party will need to be Level 20 or higher in order to queue for the Competitive Playlist. These changes are some of several gameplay improvements we are working on this year to minimize behavior that can lead to unfair matches.

Pave Your Own Path with Sovereign Krew: Aftermarket in Rocket League


Why should graffiti be reserved for the road? In Sovereign Krew: Aftermarket, the Sovereign Krew brings street art from the road to the Arena. Bring a taste of the outside to your next match with street-ready Decals and Wheels!

Sovereign Krew: Aftermarket is live now ‘til January 25—pick up these new items in the Item Shop while Sovereign Krew’s running the show.



The “Krew Made” and “Krew Loyal” Decals—both animated in-game!

Aftermarket Decals and Wheels


It doesn’t hurt to rep the krew that’s on top. With most of the new Decals, put the “SK” initials atop your car, surrounded by a street art-inspired design only SK’s capable of. The Krew Supreme Octane Decal features bold intertwined strokes while the SK Life Fennec Decal wraps your car in unapologetically stylized emblems.



You only have one chance to make a first impression, so make it count. The First Impression Breakout Decal is a canvas of different patterns—sure to make an impact. Don’t just break out with Breakout: the Sovereignteenth Dominus Decal is missing the “SK” initials… because it goes all out with the full “Sovereign Krew” moniker and a monster-like design.



Love the process of street art creation? The universal Krew Made Decal animates to show the making of classic Krew graffiti. Maybe you see potential in art beyond its completion—the universal Krew Loyal Decal waves like the surface of the sea. Keep keepin’ things in motion with the new Del Rey and X-Opps Wheels. 


Sovereign Krew: Aftermarket Mega Bundle (1800 Credits)


  • Krew Supreme Octane Decal
  • SK Life Fennec Decal
  • First Impression Breakout Decal
  • Sovereignteenth Decal
  • Krew Made Decal
  • Krew Loyal Decal
  • Del Rey Wheels
  • X-Opps Wheels

Sovereign Krew: Aftermarket Mega Bundle + Saffron Fennec (2200 Credits)


  • Saffron Fennec Car Body
  • Krew Supreme Octane Decal
  • SK Life Fennec Decal
  • First Impression Breakout Decal
  • Sovereignteenth Decal
  • Krew Made Decal
  • Krew Loyal Decal
  • Del Rey Wheels

  • Sovereignteenth Decal
  • Krew Made Decal
  • Krew Loyal Decal

Sovereign Krew: Aftermarket Wheel Bundle (500 Credits)

  • X-Opps Wheels




Individual Items


Show your Krew loyalty with Cyclone or give your Octane the makings of a magnum opus. Along with Saffron Fennec, the universal Krew Loyal and Krew Made Decals will be available in the Item Shop individually:

  • January 10 - 14: Saffron Fennec Car Body (700 Credits)
  • January 18 - 22: Krew Loyal Decal (300 Credits)
  • January 22 - 26: Krew Made Decal (300 Credits)
The Krew reigns supreme now more than ever. Sovereign Krew: Aftermarket runs until January 25. 

The RLCS Returns for 2024!


New year, new Rocket League Championship Series (RLCS) Season, and we've got all the details you need to get up to speed.

Read on to learn more about the format, schedule, and how you can sign up to play against the best players in the world’s most prestigious Rocket League tournament for a global prize pool of over $4,300,000.

STREAMLINING THE FORMAT


First up is the RLCS format, which is getting a new coat of paint for the 2024 RLCS Season. We’re increasing open competition, focusing on long-term sustainability, and widening prizing for more players than ever before.

The 2024 RLCS Season will have three in-person tournaments.

  • RLCS Major 1
  • RLCS Major 2
  • Rocket League World Championship

To qualify for each RLCS Major, there will be three online Open Qualifier tournaments in each region, for a total of six online Open Qualifiers in 2024. Each online Open Qualifier will now use a standardized format across the year. This change aims to provide clarity for both new and seasoned fans:


  1. Open Double Elimination bracket to determine the top 16 teams in each region.
  2. 16-team Swiss System to determine the top 8 teams in each region.
  3. 8-team Single Elimination bracket to determine standings in each region.

RLCS Points will be awarded to the top teams at the end of each Open Qualifier. After each Major’s 3rd Open Qualifier, the top teams in each region determined by their regional RLCS Points standings will qualify and compete internationally in the next in-person Major:

MAJOR QUALIFIED TEAMS



  • North America (NA): Top four (4) teams
  • Europe (EU): Top four (4) teams
  • Middle East & North Africa (MENA): Top two (2) teams
  • Oceania (OCE): Top two (2) teams
  • South America (SAM): Top two (2) teams
  • Asia-Pacific (APAC): Top (1) team
  • Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA): Top (1) team

Each RLCS Major will use the same standardized format as the Open Qualifiers, but with international stakes and extra RLCS Points to secure on the path to the Rocket League World Championship:


  1. 16-team Swiss system to determine the top 8 teams.
  2. 8-team Single Elimination bracket to crown a RLCS Major Champion.

After RLCS Major 2 ends, the top teams who earned the most cumulative RLCS points for the entire 2024 season in each region will be invited to the Rocket League World Championship to compete for the ultimate title - Rocket League World Champions:

WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP QUALIFIED TEAMS



  • North America (NA): Top four (4) teams
  • Europe (EU): Top four (4) teams
  • Middle East & North Africa (MENA): Top two (2) teams
  • Oceania (OCE): Top two (2) teams
  • South America (SAM): Top two (2) teams
  • Asia-Pacific (APAC): Top (1) team
  • Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA): Top (1) team

In addition,

  • Prizing distribution has widened significantly in all regions.
    • Each Open Qualifier will now award the top 128 teams cash prizes in both North America and Europe!
    • Each Open Qualifier will now award the top 64 teams cash prizes in South America, Oceania, and MENA!
    • Each Open Qualifier will now award the top 32 teams cash prizes in APAC and SSA!

  • The minimum age to compete in the 2024 RLCS is now 13 years old to further open the league for more players to compete in and win cash prizes.
    • Parent or Guardian permission will continue to be required for all minors to compete.
    • Each Minor that participates in any in-person event will require a Parent or Guardian to attend.
    • Coaches and Managers must be at least 18 years old.

  • The Esports Shop will also refresh early in the season with 30+ teams debuting new custom decals and player banners

Rocket League's Frosty Fest Returns for 2023!


The most wonderful time of the year in Rocket League is back! Frosty Fest is officially underway and running now ‘til January 3.

This year, we’re spreading the festive cheer with Challenges, wintry rewards (with some Golden Gifts thrown in!), and returning Limited Time Modes. It is the season of giving after all!

BREAKIN’ THE ICE: FROSTY FEST CHALLENGES AND REWARDS


If the season weren’t chilly enough, make it even colder with frosty accessories. Available until the end of the event, tackle 12 Frosty Fest Challenges to earn new Toppers, Antennas, a Decal, and more! Every Challenge has a reward for completion.



Is curling your favorite sport (besides Soccar)? Roll around the Arena with the Curling Stone Wheels. If you like keeping a spare, don’t leave the Curling Stone Topper behind!

Speaking of Toppers, use the Oh No Snowman Topper to fulfill a snowman’s melting wish of riding on top of a car. While the snowman sits atop, make it feel at home with the Mountaintop Octane Decal.

For completing one of the more difficult Challenges (Play 20 Online Matches), you’ll unlock a Golden Gift that pulls from the Impact, Secret Santa, and Accelerator Series. You can complete this Challenge up to five times, which means you can earn up to five Golden Gifts! 🎁

HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS: RETURNING LTMS


A special time of year means special ways to play—the Winter Breakaway and Speed Demon Limited Time Modes (LTMs) are back for Frosty Fest.

WINTER BREAKAWAY (DECEMBER 13 - DECEMBER 20)




The Soccar ball gets subbed for a Hockey Puck in the Winter Breakaway LTM! Stay frosty while you throw down 3v3 on a snowy Throwback Stadium.

SPEED DEMON (DECEMBER 20 - DECEMBER 27)


Too cool to chill? The Speed Demon LTM is a lightning-quick variant of Boomer Ball with unlimited boost at double the power. With that in mind, expect plenty of collateral damage—but don’t worry about getting taken out too much. You’ll be back behind the wheel in no time with 1-second respawns!

There’s plenty in 2023’s Frosty Fest to keep you busy, so don’t get left out in the cold! Frosty Fest is back now until January 3.

NEW: CROSS-GAME ITEMS AND TRADE-IN SYSTEM UPDATES


Cross-game ownership has arrived in Rocket League! Any item with the Cross-Game attribute will also appear in your Fortnite Locker if you play Fortnite using the same Epic Games account.

The first Car Bodies to get the Cross-Game treatment are Octane, Jäger 619, Cyclone, and the Lamborghini Huracán STO, along with select Decals for each, and the OEM Wheels. The Cross-Game attribute will be added to more items over time, so stay tuned!

Cross-Game items are also part of Rocket League’s Trade-In system, so you can trade in eligible Cross-Game items for one item of a higher rarity. Cross-Game items will have some additional trade-in rules—for example, only duplicates of Cross-Game items will appear in the Trade-In Menu until just one instance of the duplicate remains in your inventory.

The full list of Cross-Game trade-in rules will be included in the Season 13 patch notes, and these added rules will not apply to non-Cross-Game items.

OH SNAP! PLAY MENU CHANGES AND SEASON 12 COMPETITIVE REWARDS


The Play Menu's about to be as hard-edged as the era. As announced previously, the menu's getting a facelift in Season 13, featuring a squared-off design where each submenu will have a streamlined layout.

The new Competitive card lets you queue for six Competitive Playlists at once, while the Casual card has all-new Arcade Playlists and a Big Party Playlist. You can learn more about these and a ton of other Play Menu changes in our preview blog post.
