Haunted Hallows Event coming to Rocket League!

Our first Rocket League Halloween themed event is about to go down!

For the first time Rocket League will work with limited currency items. These items are called Candy Corn and can be redeemed for decryptors, crates and other items. So there is indeed something to play for this coming weeks! Reminder that items you decryped during this event will remain in your inventory forever!

These decryptors will not cost money and you will not have to buy them! But a reminder that items unlocked with the decryptor are not tradeable!

The Haunted Hallows Event will kick off October 16 5PM EDT and will last to the beginning of November!

Starbase Arc and Wasteland will be standard maps in next update!

The announcement we have been waiting for since the introduction of non standard maps. Starbase Arc and Wasteland will be standard maps in the next Autumn update!

The non standard versions of these maps will still be available in private and offline matches. So for you non standard lovers, the devs did nog forget you! So why the change of heart for Rocket League?

Why are we changing our stance? Because in the time since Wasteland Arena first launched in late 2015, non-standard map layouts have been a hot topic of debate within the Rocket League community. We have carefully listened to your feedback over that extended period of time, and though we didn’t arrive to this decision lightly, we believe it’s the right one to make. Here’s a quick rundown of several important factors that moved us in this direction:

  • We see Rocket League as a digital sport. As such, we think standardization is important and necessary to provide a level playing field and foster consistent competition across all skill levels and events.

  • We introduced non-standard arenas partly to provide variety for pro play, but they have not been embraced. Given the success of RLCS and Rocket League Esports in general, we no longer feel that map variety is needed or appropriate for the competitive scene.

  • Rocket Labs showed us that only a narrow set of arena designs would be well-received by the Rocket Leaguecommunity. Even the designs that more closely resembled conventional Arenas (like Octagon and Starbase) have been extremely divisive. Ultimately, the alternate layouts we devised simply didn’t add enough strategically to offset the corresponding loss in predictability and muscle memory. — Rocket League 

Rocket League have thought about this for several months. And felt that supporting the competitive scene, and the way they want the game to go. This was the best way. Sorry for the non standard map lovers. But the competitive scene is taking over!

Rocket League Double Drop Rate weekend!

Start your engines and rejoice for an awesome weekend of Rocket League!

Starting July 6 until Monday 10 July you will have the chance to pick up more items/crates post match! All this to celebrate 2 years of Rocket League. But that’s not all!

But that’s not all we wanted to do for our second anniversary, which is why we’re happy to announce our first-ever Rocket League Double Drop-Rate Weekend! Starting right now (July 6) through Monday, July 10 at 5pm GMT, all uncommon (or greater) free customization items and active Crates will drop more frequently post-match. What’s more, your chances of earning a Painted version of an item (in or out of a Crate) are doubled during the promotional period. — Rocket League

You will also have the chance to get a painted item from a crate (possibly Overdrive) which will increase your value and trade it on the Rocket League Exchange! More reason to play these couple of days, don’t you think?

Marky and Kuxir will be looking out for a new third, or already have one? We will soon know. Flipside thanks Greazymeister for his sportsmanship within the team. Read an excerpt below:

He scored 29 goals in 35 games during the Rocket League Championship Series Season 2 Group Stage Qualifiers and had three assists in three different games. He will always be a member of the FlipSid3 Tactics family and we will miss him dearly. We wish him nothing but the best in whatever the future has in store for him. – Statement Flipside
