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?

@RLCS Drama: ZentoX disqualified

Zentox made it into League Play with a non-EU player in it’s team. That’s not how it works. @RLCS disqualified the team for this reason.

Red Eye, Leaf eSports, Copenhagen Flames and Penta now have a change to make League Play. To get there they will have to play a Tiebreaker Playoff.

Registration for @RLCS is now open! (NA & EU)

Round up your buddy’s and make that dream come true. You have until the 20th of February to register for this year’s RLCS.

Smart thing to be doing right now is to at least have a sub in your team. You never know if problems come up. We still remember how it went with Vogan and his team last year.

Good luck and have fun!

And..oh.

Rocket League community crowdfunds $3539 for #GetShalthisHome

The Winter Classic has always been something special. The first one was a legendary one. Commentated by Shalthis and with help with other beginning casters. The Winter Classic was a stepping stone. This Winterclassic however was something different. It was the Classic for Shalthis. For the man who saw potential for himself and other as a caster. For a man that wanted us to know about Rocket League. That Shalthis needed our help to get home. And boy, we made it rain!

Known Rocket League players both from NA and EU competed in special regional competitions, casted by casters who owe a lot to Shalthis. And not to mention a great halftime show! It made this evening memorable. And showed that for a good cause this community can come together. But we aren’t there yet! Sure, the amount of yesterday’s event helped Shalthis and his family a lot. But there is still money to be needed!

So if you can spare a dime? Help Shalthis get home by going to this GoFundMe and make his dream come true. To get home. To be closer to his family and friends. For Shalthis! If you want to know more about Shalthis and what he has done for the Rocket League community so far, visit his own webpage!

Huge thanks to RocketLeagueXL/Staff, Psyonix, NZXT, SnKeSports, designers, casters, players and people in the Twitch chat for making this a night to remember!
