Expect to see these items in the wild beginning on March 11, the day after the March Update. This Series will feature the first new car of 2020, Komodo (plus 6 Komodo Decals), and 16 additional new items like Tremor Wheels, Tidal Stream Animated Decal, and the Meteor Storm Goal Explosion. For the first time, you'll be able to get these items in a couple of different ways. Blueprints from the Series will start to drop after select Online Matches. You can also expect to see these items, along with their painted variants, cycle through the Item Shop. Be sure to check it out on release day! So keep an eye out for these items beginning March 11. For now, check them out below in all of their explosive beauty! https://giant.gfycat.com/AcidicWhimsicalKingsnake.webm METEOR STORM GOAL EXPLOSION https://giant.gfycat.com/BowedArcticAltiplanochinchillamouse.webm TIDAL STREAM ANIMATED DECAL https://i.imgur.com/5zDCO1k.jpg Komodo | Ultralex Wheels | Flamerate Boost https://i.imgur.com/qV0rNBJ.jpg Vertebrate Octane Decal | Glaive Wheels Flamerate Boost https://i.imgur.com/ZECwZTB.jpg Ombre Fennec Decal | Orbit Wheels | Flamerate Boost https://i.imgur.com/u1oUbNO.jpg Faceted Sentinel Decal | Tremor Wheels | Flamerate BoostMarch Update Releases March 10Mar 6, 2020 - Community AnnouncementsRocket League is getting ready to spring forward in March with the March Update. The update will be live on all platforms on March 10 at 10 a.m. PDT (5 p.m. UTC). Here's everything you can expect on release day: Blueprint Trade-In Once the update is live, you'll be able to trade in Blueprints to get a Blueprint of a higher rarity, just like you can with free items. Trade five Blueprints from the same series and same rarity to get one of higher rarity in return! Fix for Inventory Filters Speaking of Blueprints, inventory management is also getting a fix. Any filters you set when viewing your inventory will stay active until you exit your inventory. You'll even be able to change item tabs while keeping your filters. This also means you'll be able to trade in items of a specific rarity, and those filters will remain active after the trade. We hope this makes the trading process a bit easier. Changes to Default Settings We've made some slight adjustments to default settings for players picking up Rocket League for the first time. The new settings should make it easier for new players to see the field and control their car. These changes will not affect anyone's modified control scheme or camera settings, but if players are using current default settings, they will change to the new default settings after the update. Here's what's changing: Camera Default Camera Preset Distance increased from 260 to 270 Stiffness increased from 0.3 to 0.5 Camera Shake intensity reduced for most actions "Legacy" Camera Preset added for players who prefer the original default settings Controls Controller Deadzone value reduced from 0.3 to 0.2 Dodge Deadzone value increased from 0.5 to 0.8 Reduced the intensity of controller vibration at the default setting Boost now only vibrates the controller when Boost is activated, and not while it remains active. The "Medium" and "High" Vibration settings use the old Vibration Interface Nameplates are now “Always Visible” by default. Team Colored Boost Meter is now enabled by default. Dynamic Range Controls For Game Audio We added HDR Audio to Rocket League in August's Season 12 Update, but soon you'll have even more control over the sound of the game. The March Update will add Dynamic Range Presets. In the "Audio" tab within the options menu, you'll find a new dropdown menu that contains Dynamic Range Presets. Here's how those presets will affect the game's audio: Medium (Default) Medium will provide the most balanced audio mix for headphone users, and is a similar profile to the game's current mix. Low (Night) Low is designed for listening at very low levels. Loud sounds become quieter and quiet sounds become louder, and we also remove some sounds that are less important. We do not recommend using this setting on high-fidelity systems or when playing Rocket League at high volume. High (Theater) This is the best mix for those who play Rocket League at high volume or with high-quality sound systems. Loud sounds will be more vibrant...Rocket League's World Championship has been cancelled over coronavirus concernsMar 5, 2020 - Rock, Paper, Shotgun Psyonix have hit the breaks on Rocket League‘s upcoming World Championships. Scheduled to take place from April 24-26 in Dallas, Texas, growing concerns around the Covid-19 situation have convinced the developers to cancel the event, move the rest of Season 9’s championship games online and offer full refunds to anyone who’d pre-purchased a chance to see some world-class car footy. (more…) Important Rocket League Esports UpdateMar 5, 2020 - Community AnnouncementsAt Psyonix, we take the safety of our competitive players, fans, and personnel very seriously. Due to worldwide health concerns surrounding the developing situation around the Coronavirus (COVID-19), we are cancelling the Rocket League Season 9 World Championship live event as scheduled from April 24-26 in Dallas, Texas. We understand that this is frustrating, but health and safety will always be our top priority. For fans that bought tickets to attend the event at the Curtis Culwell Center through the ETIX website, a refund will be granted automatically to your card in full, including all fees. There will also be an automatic refund for any fans who pre-purchased parking passes. If you haven’t received a refund by Wednesday, March 11, you can contact ETIX support at [email protected] If you bought a ticket from a third-party retailer, please contact them directly with refund requests. Regarding the previously announced attendee in-game Wheel, in April, we will email codes (one per ticket) to those that bought tickets via ETIX. The remainder of Rocket League Championship Series (RLCS) Season 9 League Play will be played as scheduled to the Regional Championships and Promotion Tournament. We’re evaluating all options to replace World Championship play. Once we have more information to share, we'll update everyone. There will also be changes to our weekly broadcasts for RLCS and the Rival Series. As the health and wellbeing of our broadcast talent is also of utmost importance, we'll be moving the broadcast completely online for the remainder of the season beginning this week. You'll still be able to watch RLCS and Rival Series matches Friday, Saturday, and Sunday as usual, but the broadcast talent will not be in-studio. Additionally, we are actively working with our partners in Oceania and South America in order to ensure the health and safety of players and personnel there as well and we’ll share updates accordingly. As mentioned before, the safety and health of our professional players, personnel, and fans will continue to be our first consideration as we navigate our future plans. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we explore the best options moving forward. We are still looking forward to producing the highest level of competitive Rocket League for fans around the world, and hope you join us as we move Season 9 online. Community Spotlight: Hit Your Dream Rank With The Latest Training PacksFeb 27, 2020 - Community AnnouncementsIt's time for a refresh to the featured training packs, and it's just in time for the end of Competitive Season 13.

Because of some weird technical difficulties, players were removed from the game’s servers while it was put into “maintenance mode” on and off over the last few days. It couldn’t have come at a more inconvenient time either, as the issues caused a bunch of official esports matches to be pushed back, too.

It seems AbleGamers COO, Rocket League fan and wheelchair user Steven Spohn thought so too, and set about trying to bridge that gap. A little bit of hardware tinkering later, and the Freedom Wing Adaptor was born – a nifty little box that lets you plug a power wheelchair into an Xbox Adaptive Controller. (more…) Community Spotlight: Jon SandmanJan 30, 2020 - Community Announcementshttps://i.imgur.com/2Cbgic7.jpg If someone follows Rocket League content creators on YouTube or Twitch, there's a 99% chance Jon Sandman is one of those creators. He's been building his audience since before Rocket League existed, which recently crossed the 1 million subscribers mark on YouTube alone. And that's just one platform! He's approaching 300,000 followers on Twitch, where he streams regularly, and has amassed more than 170,000 followers on Twitter where he keeps up with the audience. How did a guy who was living the life of a struggling actor on the west coast rise to become one of the top creators in the community? Hard work. But there's more than Jon's unmatched work ethic at play here. Jon hopped on the Discord call for his interview with the same charisma he has in his videos. The 31 year old is the same energetic and friendly guy you see on his channel. Blueprint Fights, Ranked Match grinds at the Grand Champ level, you name it, he’s doing it. His personality has always been the appeal, and he certainly understands that. "I push out so much energy in my streams, which is why they're only four hours," Jon explains. "I have a wild intro called ‘Roll Call,’ where I rap everyone's name. I'm at 100 MPH all the time. It's not me being fake. It's truly just me. You see that when you meet me. It's definitely exhausting, but I love it. It's just who I am. It's who I've been since I was a kid." That kid fell in love with video games at a young age, thanks to his dad. Jon recalls beating Super Mario Bros. sitting on his father's lap when he was around 3 years old. As he grew, so did his gaming tastes, which graduated to CounterStrike, League of Legends, and Call of Duty. When he wasn't gaming, Jon was performing. He got the acting bug in high school, which was a good fit for a kid growing up in Los Angeles. Jon started performing with his school's choir, while acting in dramatic plays. Those opportunities took him around the world to places like Switzerland and Scotland. When he wasn't performing in his school groups, he was getting acting work. "I was a drama nerd. I loved doing plays and performing. I was able to do these shows and then act on the side. I was part of the Screen Actors Guild, got in a bunch of B movies and McDonald's commercials. I loved acting and music. That was my life." Jon was on track to be a musician in high school and even into college. He was part of a band called The Young Rapscallions that was on the rise. The band had steady work, but he had to juggle that AND his courses at community college. "I really thought the band was going to be my thing, but I was going to college for my parents," Jon says. "They were always really supportive, and I always had a place to stay there. I lived in their guest house until I was about 24. They said, 'if you're under our roof, you're going to school.' I respected that. I didn't have to pay rent but I had to go to school. To me, graduating was for my parents." He followed through...Content Update Coming February 4Jan 28, 2020 - Community AnnouncementsRocket League's first title update of 2020 will refresh the Esports Shop to help kick off Season 9 of the Rocket League Championship Series (RLCS).

They explained that it was “no longer viable” to support Mac and Linux as they continued to upgrade the game with “new technologies”. This was a bit of a vague reason that naturally left a lot of fans asking questions – but now they’ve said they can’t justify upgrading the tech on platforms that house less than 0.3% of their active player base. (more…) Psyonix ends Rocket League support for Mac and LinuxJan 25, 2020 - EurogamerPsyonix has decided to end support for the Mac and Linux versions of Rocket League, saying both platforms combined represent a tiny percentage of its active player base. After a final patch in March, online functionality will be deactivated for the macOS and Linux versions of the game, which means Mac and Linux players won't be able to play online multiplayer or access the in-game store. Offline features including local matches and splitscreen play will still be accessible. In a post on the Rocket League subreddit, Psyonix community chief Devin Connors said the company couldn't justify the time and resources it would take to keep the game updated on Mac and Linux after it updates its Windows version from 32-bit to 64-bit, and to DirectX 11 from DirectX 9 later this year. Read more Rocket League is ending support for Mac and Linux in MarchJan 24, 2020 - Rock, Paper, Shotgun It’s bad news if you play Rocket League on Mac or Linux – in March developer Psyonix are stopping support for the platforms, taking away online multiplayer in one final update. Players will still have access to all of the offline stuff though, so you’ll still be able to play with your friends either locally or using split-screen. You just won’t be able to join any online matches, or make any in-game purchases. (more…) Ending Support for macOS and LinuxJan 23, 2020 - Community Announcements{STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/9036925/3769e2c7f0bbc1bb2ce537a0859459fc4ed9ee04.jpg As we continue to upgrade Rocket League with new technologies, it is no longer viable for us to maintain support for the macOS and Linux (SteamOS) platforms. As a result, the final patch for the macOS and Linux versions of the game will be in March. This update will disable online functionality (such as in-game purchases) for players on macOS and Linux, but offline features including Local Matches, and splitscreen play will still be accessible. If you purchased Rocket League for Mac or Linux on Steam, the game will still work with full functionality when installed and played on a computer running Windows 7 or newer.

But positive word-of-mouth resulted in the game quickly exploding in popularity. And by the end of its first month on Steam, Rocket League saw its playerbase spike up to an average of 12.8k players per hour. Since then, Rocket League has shown no signs of slowing down with the playerbase continuing to increase. And now, Rocket League is celebrating its second year on Steam with a current average of 39k players per hour – a number that’s twenty times the game’s debut playerbase and that keeps it in Steam’s daily top 10 most played list. [caption id="attachment_276892" align="aligncenter" width="800"] Rocket League's Average Players per Hour via GitHyp[/caption] Most recently, the developers at Psyonix discounted Rocket League by 40% during the Steam Summer Sale -- reducing the price from $19.99 to $11.99 -- which they've done multiple times since the game's release. However, it was actually the dev’s big Year 2 update featuring a new map, Rick and Morty content, and the first-ever double drop-rate weekend that resulted in a 28% increase in players right after the sale. Rocket League’s constant updates and lack of competition are two of the biggest factors attributed to its player gains. Aside from Psyonix’s own previous game on PlayStation 3, 2008’s Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars, there’s nothing quite like Rocket League to challenge it and steal away players. And until there is, Rocket League’s playerbase is on track to continue increasing on Steam with the devs already announcing tons of new content on the way.
