Psyonix has done an excellent job of keeping Rocket League fresh with new content and gameplay modifiers, and it looks like 2016 won't be an exception. On its Steam Community page, the San Diego-based team announced that the first season of competitive Rocket League will be brought to a close when a new update launches in February. If you haven't already, it's a good idea to get playing some Ranked matches, because if you've attained Bronze status or higher, you're in for a reward.
Any player who meets that requirement will earn a Bronze, Silver, Gold, or Platinum Crown topper for their car, depending on the ranking that you finish the season on. It's worth noting that your crown will be the colour of your highest rank – for instance, if you got to Silver in 1v1 and Gold in 2v2, then you'd receive a Gold crown for your efforts.
Also introduced is a new colour-coordinated item classification system. Grey "Common" items are the usual stock items, Green "Premium" items are items from paid DLC, Orange "Limited" items are items acquired from limited-edition and seasonal items, and Light Blue "Uncommon" items can only be earned from online matches – many of which will be added in this new patch. What's interesting is that, the longer that you play online Rocket League, the more frequently Uncommon items will drop. It's a nice extra for the dedicated fans, and will probably encourage many to play the game more.
What rank are you hoping to get by the end of the season? Are you happy with Psyonix's support for the game? Spam "What a save!" whenever you score in the comments below!
This sounds super cool. Impressive update.
Who can see this happening later this year? Rocket League: VR Mode?!
Cool, its too bad that I don't play Ranked matches.
@adf86 was thinking how it would be pretty cool, though probably unsettling
I can't believe rocket league of all games is getting loot XD
Great as always. I never played rank matches though. I am sure they are probably not for casual players like me.
@iDangerMouse_ we got some gaming to play if we want a gold crown pal :/
Anyone else out there still playing RL?
I got the platinum trophy on Rocket Leauge the other day and that has nothing to do with this news story.
On topic I just like to chase the ball around like a little puppy without all that tatics and strategy rubbish getting in my way. I don't think ranked matches suit my playstyle.
Think I'm on Bronze III for a couple of the groups so might make a push to get a silver
Was playing a few ranked games yesterday as it happened and contrary to what people are saying here, I found there was a lot more coprdination between players in unranked games than in ranked; I'm talking about random players playing together here just to be clear. In ranked, so many times a player would make basic mistakes like leaving the goal unguarded when they were the last person back/closest to the goal or two people going for the same ball. Also had a case of a goal thief but that's a different story. For people here that have been put off ranked I wouldn't ignore it out of fear, espeacially if you start playing RL fairly regularly and get your rhythm going you'll manage just fine. Just ignore the chat box
@themcnoisy I have a Rocket League addiction, there, i said it.
