Rocket League is deploying a hotfix that hopefully will fix the ball collision in the game.
- Fixed an issue with the ball collision code, changing it back to pre-v1.29 (Hot Wheels update) conditions in all Offline matches, and Free Play
- This update has already been pushed out to our servers for Online matches
- Toppers (Cavalier, Mohawk, Pixelated Shades) now correctly display on all Battle-Cars
- Fixed an issue with Twin Mill III engine audio not following the Battle-Car
The new Hot Wheels update delivers more than just new Battle-Cars and PS4 Pro Support. New gameplay issues arise. Here’s how you can help!
To help the Rocket League devs gather information about what works and what not. Head over to this thread on Reddit and supply any proof of gameplay issues you encounter. This way a new hotfix can hopefully be implemented. On behave of the community: Thanks!
Not everything was running smoothly after patch 1.25. So Rocket League devs have been working hard on doing it right this time.
The following information has been taken from the official patch notes website.
CASUAL PLAYLISTS AND ROCKET LAB ARENAS
We have removed Rocket Lab Arenas from the Casual Arena rotation (for now). Rocket Labs Arenas were appearing too frequently and the current ‘Arena Preferences’ system does not give players who dislike Rocket Labs maps enough sway to avoid them.
* NOTE: New Rocket Labs Arena designs may appear next year in Casual playlists in a way that they can be more effectively influenced by Arena Preferences
We are also discussing alternative ways to get your feedback on new Arenas in shorter doses.
STATS, SETTINGS, AND PRESET DATA
Fixed an issue with the game client picking the wrong local profile from your save data. For some accounts that played splitscreen, this caused a “loss” of recorded stats, in-game settings, and car presets when the patch was released.
PC players should see their stats, settings, and presets restored with this hotfix. Unfortunately this was not possible for PlayStation 4 or Xbox One.
We are investigating solutions for next year that would prevent this from happening again by storing more of your information in our database so it cannot be lost due to this kind of bug, save-data corruption, or hardware malfunction of your PC/ Console.
[Hotfixed] Fixed collision issue that caused vehicles to sometimes bounce when
landing / caused the Batmobile to sometimes land “inside” the field.
The previous fix for the Batmobile “wobble-on-landing” had to be removed so that we can
better address it in a future update.
[Hotfixed] (PC) Fixed rendering issue that created a flickering problem for some Arenas.
Fixed VSync for Mac.
Fixed the Vulcan DLC Showroom thumbnail so that it would no longer shows an image of Triton.
The “Current Tier” text shown after Competitive matches will no longer be colored Green or Red when changing Divisions if the “Hide Competitive Divisions” option is enabled.
Rocket League just deployed a hotfix that will fix the bouncing issue that several battle-cars had post 1.25. This fix doesn’t apply on the Batmobile though.
Earlier today Rocket League deployed a hotfix that has a serious impact on the competitive scene and it’s playlist. We should be feeling happy, right?
Some issues surfaced with the new update and Rocket League is doing everything to get these bugs out of the way. Stay updated in this thread.
