Rocket League just dropped the patch notes for this upcoming Dropshot update. And it’s huge!

In short:

THE HEADLINES

    • Painted Endo bodies and Tachyon Rocket Trails can be found in the Turbo Crate

  • Seasonal Easter Items can be acquired March 22 to April 17

  • Season 3 of Competitive play is ending and Season 4 begins. Titles and items will be awarded for the highest rank achieved during the season

For a full overview of the patch notes. Visit the RocketLeagueGame.com website. Here’s the part that people (I think) want to read the most.

COMPETITIVE

  • Season 3 has ended. Titles and items will be awarded for your highest rank achieved during the season

    • Season 3 Prospect Wheel

    • Season 3 Challenger Wheel

    • Season 3 Star Wheel

    • Season 3 Champion Wheel

    • Season 3 Grand Champion Title

  • Season 4 brings a new set of Skill Rankings to provide more clear divisions between skill levels

    • You are now classified into Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, Diamond, Champion, and Grand Champion ranks

    • The new Grand Champion rank will be harder to attain than in Season 3

    • There are now only four divisions per skill tier (e.g. Gold II, Division IV) due to each tier covering a smaller range of skills

  • Skill Reset

    • After placement matches, you will be assigned a skill rating influenced by your Season 3 ranking

    • This ranking will be lower than where you finished Season 3 and you will have to climb back to the highest rank you can reach

    • We are not doing a full reset like Season 3 due to the lengthy period of matchmaking disturbance it created.  This “soft reset” means players start separated by skill to keep things balanced but can still climb back to top ranks

  • Matchmaking Abuse

    • In the interest of enforcing fair competition, a small number of accounts have been identified as abusing the matchmaking system, and will receive a hard skill reset. These accounts will not receive Competitive Season 3 item rewards

  • Placement Match Updates

    • The placement match system has been revised to allow players to climb faster if they win the majority of their placement games

  • When rejoining a Ranked Match, the default option is now “OK” instead of “Cancel”

BUG FIXES

GENERAL

  • The Boost Meter now rounds down when you have a fractional amount of boost.

  • Party Members can now rejoin Private Matches after exiting to the Main Menu.

  • Fixed a rare issue where items would disappear after a completed trade

  • The achievement “Rocket Genocider” has been fixed

  • Xbox One: Removing a split screen user from a party no longer ends the party

  • An issue with the Dominus GT tail lights not working properly has been fixed

  • Turning on/off Color Blind Mode no longer causes the field to change colors in Free Play

  • Players can no longer pass through the Arena wall on Double Goal (Rocket Labs)

  • Trading with one player in your party no longer prevents you from trading with other party members afterwards

  • Painted Items are now displayed correctly in the Trade-In menu

  • Lobos Wheels now have glowing eyes on both sides of your Battle-Car

  • The gun turrets behind the arena in Starbase ARC no longer shoot indefinitely

  • Fixed an issue causing Motion Blur to be incorrectly disabled on PS4 and Xbox One
