EXPANDED COMPETITIVE TOURNAMENTS

The schedule for Competitive Tournaments is growing in all regions! Additional Tournaments are being added, and 2v2 and Extra Mode Tournaments are joining the mix. Be sure to check out the schedule each day to see what Extra Mode is being featured and to see the new start times. Plus, Tournament Rewards have been refreshed for the new Season!

LTMS ON THE HORIZON

2v2 Heatseeker will kick off as the featured LTM on August 12, the day after Season 4 goes live. Then, be on the lookout for Speed Demon on August 19! This super-fast LTM combines mutators, the speed of Boomer Ball without the wild bounces, demos on contact, and a fast respawn timer. Spring Loaded, the Rumble variant that is currently a mutator option in Private Matches, will also be added to the LTM mix later this month.

NEW FEATURES AND CHANGES COMING IN THIS UPDATE

Streamer Safe Music Feature

A new Audio Setting is being added so players can turn off copyright protected music. This will help prevent content creators from having their streams or videos delisted due to DMCA violations. By checking the “Streamer Safe Music (Only)” box in Audio Settings, DMCA protected audio will be muted or replaced by music that is free to use. This setting will affect both Rocket League Radio as well as Player Anthems.

Undersized party Rank restrictions

Following the start of Season 4, players who queue in Ranked playlists in an undersized party (a party of two players in Competitive 3v3 Standard, or a party of two players joining a 3v3 Standard Tournament) will have to be within three Ranks of each other in order to queue. This is so the third teammate that is found via matchmaking will join a team that is roughly the same Rank as their teammates.

This change does not take Rank Divisions into account, and does not affect parties of two attempting to queue in 2v2, Casual Playlists, or any Extra Mode Playlists. We hope this change creates a better Competitive experience for those solo queuing in 3v3.

Improvements to Casual Matches

We know that it can be frustrating when teammates leave Casual Matches early, and we’re taking steps to improve the experience. After the update, we’re adding the ability to forfeit Casual Matches just like Competitive Matches. If all players on a team vote to concede, the Casual Match will end just like it were a Competitive Match. With the option to concede being added, we’re also adding matchmaking bans for players who continually leave casual matches.

THE HEADLINES
  • Today’s update prepares Rocket League for the start of Season 4. A second set of patch notes with more information will be posted at the start of Season 4
    • Season 4 begins on August 11 at 8:00 a.m. PDT (3:00 p.m. UTC)
CHANGES AND UPDATES

Streamer Safe Music

  • Streamer Safe music allows you to play Rocket League’s included music tracks without worrying about DMCA violations while streaming or recording
  • ‘Streamer Safe Music’ can be found under Settings > Audio
  • Once enabled, Rocket League will remove or replace any tracks that may lead to a DMCA violation
    • The Streamer Safe setting works in conjunction with your chosen settings for Player Anthems, playing the soundtrack in-game, and playing the soundtrack during matches

Matchmaking Penalties in Casual Playlists

  • To improve the average match quality in Casual playlists, we are introducing penalties for players who quit Casual games early.
  • Similar to the matchmaking bans for Competitive Playlists, players who leave Casual Playlist matches early may be subject to a short matchmaking ban. Leaving a single match per day won’t result in a penalty, but repeatedly quitting escalates the length of the ban.
  • There are seven ban levels for Casual Playlists:
    • First – 0 Minutes
    • Second – 5 Minutes
    • Third – 10 Minutes
    • Fourth – 20 Minutes
    • Fifth – 40 Minutes
    • Sixth – 1 hour
    • Seventh or more – 2 hours
  • Once you progress beyond the first level, there is a 12-hour cooldown before the ban level de-escalates by one level.
  • You can now “Vote to Concede” a Casual Match once enough time has passed, similar to Competitive play if your team wants to leave or simply proceed to the next match.
  • We’ve made the following changes to backfill behavior
    • If a player leaves a Casual match, they will not be backfilled into the same match
    • Casual matches with a score difference of three goals or more will not be backfilled. Bots will replace any players who leave the match.

Undersized Party Rank Restrictions

  • To help preserve balanced competitive play, parties of two playing in 3v3 Standard in Competitive or 3v3 Tournaments must be within 3 Ranks of each other
    • Examples of allowed undersized parties
      • Gold 3 + Platinum 3 (three ranks apart)
      • Diamond 2 + Champion 1 (two ranks apart)
    • Examples of disallowed undersized parties
      • Gold 3 + Diamond 1 (four ranks apart)
      • Silver 2 + Grand Champion 2 (fifteen ranks apart)
  • This change does not apply to Extra Modes Playlists or Casual Playlists
  • This change starts with Season 4

Player to Player Trading Updates

  • Once both players have entered items and accepted terms, a new trade review screen will appear
    • This screen will display all items involved in the trade
      • All item details are visible at all times on this screen (Painted color, Certification, Special Edition type, Esports affiliation)
    • No new items can be added once this screen appears
      • There is a five-second countdown before the Accept Trade button can be used
      • You can cancel out of the Trade Review screen if you want to go back and add/remove items

Game Ban Messaging

    • Similar to current ban messaging, and Report Feedback, this message will appear as a pop-up once Rocket League is started
    • “Due to the number of bans issued on this account, the next ban from Psyonix may be permanent. Please do not use harassing or toxic language in future matches. For more information, please go to {LINK REMOVED}
