Of course not! Nobody is saying they play more for the rewards than the intrinsic satisfaction of getting better at the game, but I don’t see how people are saying that’s an excuse for releasing the worst season rewards to date by far, especially for the group of people (champions) who experienced the largest jump in “cool factor” for their reward in every other season. You want to go away from fixed colors, totally fine, but there should still be that same satisfying jump in “cool factor” that is easily noticeable by every player. The logo on the banner simply spinning slowly does not do that in any way and using a fixed color (gold) that looks worse than the color scheme for the platinum or gold banners (purple or blueish themes) makes no sense especially the first time you move away from the fixed rank colors. I don’t even understand why there are fixed colors for these banners. It seems to me that the obvious choice would have been to unlock color schemes and banner structures with each tier so that I could put the platinum or gold color schemes on the champion structured banner. That would actually stay true to this philosophy of greater creative freedom that the banners they came out with simply do not. Every champion should be upset with these rewards. And I’m sorry if you personally didn’t get to that rank, but try to see it from the champion perspective. It almost seems like psyonix made some goal explosions that were going to just be free common drops into season rewards even though they do not align with the season reward system at all because they knew how bad these banners are.

Am Champ. Am not upset. I'd argue that Crowns and Wheel Trails could be considered "worst" season rewards.

The trails were a great reward. I see the silver, diamond, and champion trails still used all the time. I personally still use the silver trail as it’s the only white trail in the game. I could see an argument for the last banners being the worst but I think banners in general are a not very satisfying reward, which is why I don’t understand at all why they chose to go in a new and really polarizing direction with their season rewards while using the type of reward that is least well suited to demonstrate its potential. Also, a huge fan of yours <3

Yes that's why I said "arguably". Wheel trails only appear when supersonic and thus don't really "display" your rank that well. Everyone will have different ideas of what is the best rewards, and usually it will be something they weren't able to achieve.

Getting banners and goal explosions sounds great on paper, the execution left something to be desired so I understand the disappointment. But in reality no reward will ever please everyone.

I agree. The execution just seems to contradict their stated goal. Moving away from the fixed rank colors for this reward seems to have freed up no room for new design choices in any meaningful way other than with the grand champ banner (which I think is actually a very cool color scheme). Every other banner seems to be designed exactly how it would have been if they stuck with the existing system but with random colors that ensure nobody will ever be able to create a matching car loadout with their highest level achieved season rewards over the next couple seasons. I thought the idea of making the color schemes unlockable as well was a good idea as it actually means getting more from the banners with this new non-fixed rank color idea. To me this is the only way to make the move offer any benefit with this kind of reward (banners). I’d love to hear your thoughts on that idea.

I never write comments. I even thought it was ridiculous when everyone was complaining about the dragons. But this, this is just so much worse. I cannot express how disappointed I am. The addition of the goal explosions almost feels like a slap in the face when they really aren’t linked to ranks. I finally hit champion and i was so proud of it before I saw these rewards. And I know I didn’t do it for the rewards, but it somehow just feels so awful to get this gold banner as the reward. I desperately hope psyonix finds some way to remedy this. It feels like they are rushing to copy fortnite’s battle pass system that won’t even mesh well with rocket league’s existing item system that they didn’t care to take the little extra time to make these rewards worthwhile at all.

How?? If I aim with LT And hold breath with RB then that's using my pointer finger on each hand?

Because you are using three buttons. One button to ADS, one button to hold breath, and one button to actually shoot, or why else would you be holding your breath in the first place? Currently you have to use two fingers on your left hand and one on your right to perform this action and your proposed change would make it so you use two fingers on your right hand and one on your left.

Really small, insignificant complaint here but, why do the bullet loops not share between shotgun and kar98? The kars bullet loops are the only attachment locked to a specific weapon, and while i know one would have rifle bullets versus shells... lots of attachments translate to guns that don't make sense, like extended mags between ARs and S12k. It's a small thing but it makes the attachment just way rarer for no reason.

There is also the stock for the mini uzi. I can see how the different bullet loops would be fundamentally different but I would support them making the bullet loops just one attachment that works for shotguns and the Kar

What happened to buying the car just out right? How many cars have been crate exclusives?

see more

Takumi rxt, dominus gt, road hog xl, x devil mk 2, octane zsr, mantis, endo, animus gp, centio v17, Jager, imperator. Hope I'm not missing any but I probably am.

Will this be an update? Or like the velocity crate, just you guys change something server side and it all changes? Really curious!

see more

I imagine it won't be an update since the crate and items have already been found in the game files just like the velocity crate stuff. Should just be a server side switch.

These are all absolutely amazing. Great job man. It gets said every time but psyonix should hire you asap

They want to incentivize people to buy more than just one key at a time but other than that, they want to keep it $1 per key. However, it has been proven through many studies that for any whole dollar amount, lowering the price by one cent makes that price feel lower in a significant way to people as a whole so they also adopted that commonly used pricing technique. It inadvertently leads to a weird system where the 5 pack is the technically cheapest option but only by fractions of a cent.

There is no actual update you need to download. Psyonix just flipped a switch to let a new crate that was already in the files start being dropped.

Is the popcorn goal explosion from a certain crate?

Edit: crate not rate. Thanks!

I'm assuming you mean crate. Yes, it's only in the accelerator crate right now.

What's the issue?

I'm guessing it's because they are black painted which looks just like the original.

I believe they already had some locked spots for season 4 RLCS. You just compete for the open spots in both RLCS and RLRS. The only difference is that there were no locked RLRS spots this time around since RLRS was brand new.

I definitely would not want it to be one team could be white and the other could be black. I personally love white and would be super annoyed having that option on one team and not the other. I have no problem with the system as it is because I can make an awesome "white car" with a primary color, white secondary, white painted car, and white painted wheels. If anything I'd just add all the colors to every team for primary and secondary because you can already make your car look like it's on the opposing team with secondary color alone
