Rocket League Championship Series 9 detailed

Feeling fine with season 9

The Rocket League Championship Series (RLCS) is just over one week away from returning for Season 9! It's bringing a fresh coat of paint, new teams, and a longer format that will truly test the mettle of the best Rocket League teams on the planet. If you’re new here or just need a refresher of what to expect, let’s get you caught up and ready for the newest (and sleekest) season of the RLCS yet!

MORE TEAMS, MORE COMPETITION

As mentioned previously, the RLCS will be moving to ten-team leagues for North America and Europe for the first time ever! As players have continued to get better and better at Rocket League, it became increasingly clear that an eight-team league simply wasn’t big enough for all the current and up-and-coming pros. Last season, a ten-team league was added to the Rival Series and after a successful and competitive season, it was time for the RLCS to follow suit.

In order to accommodate the move to ten teams, Season 9 League Play has been lengthened to eight weeks. Teams will play a total of nine matches over the course of the season. That’s two more matches for each team, giving them a greater opportunity to jockey for position and prove they have what it takes to make it to the World Championship.

OCEANIA AND SOUTH AMERICA ARE BACK!

Oceania (LPL Rocket League Oceanic Championship presented by Let's Play Live) and South America (Grand Series presented by RocketStreet) are both returning for Season 9 and both received a prize pool bump to boot! The LPL Rocket League Oceanic Championship will now sport a prize pool of $75,000, while the Grand Series will now have a prize pool of $35,000.

Qualifiers for the LPL Rocket League Oceanic Championship will take place on February 8 and 9, while League Play will begin on February 23 and run through April 5. The Regional Championship will last two days and take place on April 11 and 12. Grand Series Qualifiers (the first two were on 18 and 19) will take place on January 25, and 26. The Play-In will follow and will be on February 1. Grand Series League Play begins on February 9 and will end on March 15. The Grand Series Regional Championship will round out the South American action on March 22.

Make sure to tune in to the LPL Rocket League Oceanic Championship HERE and the Grand Series HERE.

HOW AND WHEN TO WATCH

As with seasons past, you can catch all of the RLCS action on both Twitch and YouTube all season long! RLCS League Play will be live on Saturdays and Sundays from February 1 through March 22; with the Rival Series kicking off the weekends on Fridays. Check out the schedule below:

Boundary Break - Finding out-of-bounds secrets in Rocket League

Boundary Break is back with another episode, once again showing off things you normally shouldn't be able to see during gameplay. Today's episode takes us outside the stadium walls of Rocket League to see what's hiding out there.

The highest earning US Rocket League players revealed

It pays to play

With more than 2.5 billion gamers around the world, it’s safe to say that the video game industry is constantly growing. The private reg company Click4reg.co.uk was curious to find out more about those who are passionate about both gaming and cars and had a look at the award-winning game Rocket League to find out who earns the most from playing it in tournaments in the US.

Some of the findings included:

The highest earning US Rocket League player, Gimmick (Jesus Parra), earned a whopping $193,771 from tournaments - three times the average yearly salary of an American.
Kyle Storer (Torment) is the US player in second place earning $193,771.
Fireburner_ (Jayson Nunez), Kronovi (Cameron Bills) and jstn (Justin Morales) have also earned six figures from winning Rocket League tournaments.
Rocket League ranks 17 as the game with the highest prizes, out of the top 100 games played in tornaments, giving away a massive $6,511,129.91 to its players

Rocket League updated to Version 1.71

Pricing updates and bug fixes

Along with the reworking of Item and Blueprint pricing, Psyonix has also pushed out Version 1.71 for Rocket League. Check out the patch notes below.

CHANGES AND UPDATES

- Blueprints and Item Shop pricing reworked

BUG FIXES

General

- Older DLC Car Bodies now appear correctly in Online Matches
- Fixed appearance of multiple Decals for Dominus

Rocket League changes up Item and Blueprint pricing following backlash

Listening to fan feedback

Rocket League recently made some big changes to their game, including doing away with loot boxes. Unfortunately, while well-intentioned, it seems some of the pricing changes for Items and Blueprints have left fans with a bad taste in their mouth. Thankfully, the team behind Rocket League has heard the complaints, and they've set out to fix the issue.

Since the Blueprint Update release last week, we have pored over all of your comments on Discord, Reddit, Twitter, and beyond. We have heard your feedback that Item Shop and Blueprint pricing did not meet community expectations. After carefully reviewing all the data available to us, we're making the following changes, starting today:

ITEM PRICING REDUCTIONS

Reduced the base price ranges of Item Rarities (before attributes like Paint) to the following values:

Rare: 50-100 Credits
Very Rare: 100-200 Credits
Import: 300-500 Credits
Exotic: 700-800 Credits

ITEM ATTRIBUTES

Paint and Special Editions now add less cost across the board, based on rarity:

Most Paint Colors: 50-200 additional Credits
Burnt Sienna: 0 additional Credits
Titanium White: 100-500 additional Credits
Special Editions: 200-400 additional Credits

Occasionally, special items will have custom pricing that varies from the above guidelines.

For in-game purchases made between December 4 and December 11 (today) at 12:00 p.m. PST (8:00 p.m. UTC) we will add Credits equal to any difference in price directly to your account. For example, purchasers of Crimson Fennec will receive 500 Credits back today, as a Crimson Fennec now costs 700 instead of 1200 Credits. This price adjustment is a one-time only event, and only applies to purchases made between December 4 and December 11.

These Credit returns will be complete within the next few hours. There will be no in-game display explaining this change. Players with any questions or concerns about recent purchases may contact our Customer Care team.

We always take feedback from our passionate community seriously, and we hope that this change in pricing reflects that. As always, thank you for being part of what makes Rocket League what it is today.
