Rocket League blog update - A challenges chat with game director Scott Rudi

Rocket-side chat

Rocket Pass 3 begins on April 17, and with it comes a new Weekly Challenge system. Challenge systems are found in plenty of titles in the online gaming space, but adding Challenges to Rocket League presented some unique "Challenges" of its own.

The Psyonix development team wanted to ensure that adding Weekly Challenges wouldn't alter Rocket League's core, competitive gameplay, while still adding an enjoyable experience for players participating in Rocket Pass. The direction for the new Challenge System didn't happen overnight. We sat down with game director Scott Rudi to chat about the creative direction for the latest Rocket Pass, specifically Weekly Challenges, and here's what he had to say:

Q: HOW LONG HAVE CHALLENGES BEEN IN THE WORKS?

Scott Rudi, Game Director: Oh man, for a few months, give or take. We were working on the design shortly after Rocket Pass 1 based on what we were seeing in there. The idea was to keep players wanting to Tier-up evenly even later throughout Rocket Pass. We wanted to keep people engaged on a weekly basis, and we think the Weekly Challenges are a better way to drive that. The Pro Tiers have always been the biggest draw, so the goal was to get players to that level faster and earlier. That's why we went with some of the design decisions that we did. The Rocket Pass Challenge System only adds to the speed in which you Tier-up.

Rocket League's Rocket Pass 3 and weekly challenges revealed

Get out there and rocket!

With Rocket Pass 3 just around the corner, we wanted to let you know what to expect on April 17. Along with an entirely new line of Free and Premium items unique to this Rocket Pass, Weekly Challenges are also being added to the mix. These Challenges will allow players to Tier Up even faster. Before you eagerly take the field on day one, here is everything you need to know about Rocket Pass 3 and Weekly Challenges.

ARE YOU UP TO THE CHALLENGE?
Weekly Challenges will go live on the first day of Rocket Pass 3, and will add a new way to climb Tiers. Specifically, Tiers are now gained with a new Rocket League reward system, known as "Tier Points." Tier Points are earned by completing Challenges but they're also earned by gaining XP after Online Matches, similar to how it worked in Rocket Pass 1 and 2.

How does it work together now? Well, in Rocket Pass 3, each Tier requires 10 Tier Points to advance to the next Tier. Challenges will be worth three, five, and eight Tier Points depending on the difficulty of the Challenge. In addition to the Tier Points you gain from completing Weekly Challenges, you can also Tier-Up from XP as mentioned above. Every time you gain an XP level, you'll receive 10 Tier Points.

Weekly Challenges must be completed during the week in which they are active. They will expire once new Challenges become active during the following week. Rocket Pass 3 will still track your progress for Premium Weekly Challenges even if you have not purchased Rocket Pass Premium, but you will only receive the Tier Points from Premium Challenges once Rocket Pass Premium has been purchased. If you purchase Rocket Pass Premium late into Rocket Pass 3, you will receive the Tier Points from completed Premium Challenges in expired weeks. However, you will not be able to complete uncompleted Challenges once they expire.

The Challenge list will refresh each Wednesday at 10:00 a.m. PDT (5:00 p.m. UTC) throughout Rocket Pass 3.

ALL NEW ITEMS
Rocket Pass 3 will feature 20+ items in the Free track, and 50+ additional items in the Rocket Pass Premium Track, including the all-new Guardian Battle-Car. Plus, there are Decryptors to earn on the Free track and a total of 10 Keys in Rocket Pass Premium.

The Pro Tiers are back! Pro Tiers (i.e. past Tier 70) will grant Painted items from Rocket Pass 3, and will have a chance of being Certified or Special Edition. As always, rewards earned from the Pro Tiers in Rocket Pass 3 are tradable.

ROCKET PASS 3 AND CHALLENGES AT A GLANCE
If you prefer bullet points, here's the TL;DR version of Rocket Pass 3 and Weekly Challenges:

Rocket Pass Premium for Rocket Pass 3 is the same price as previous Rocket Passes (10 Keys).

Rocket Pass 3 will have both Free and Premium Tiers, just like Rocket Pass 1 and 2.

Rocket Pass 3 will have Weekly Challenges for both Free and Premium tracks.

The Free track will have three Weekly Challenges and those with Rocket Pass Premium will get three additional Weekly Challenges.

Challenges expire each Wednesday at 10 a.m. PDT (5:00 p.m. UTC) during Rocket Pass 3, and new challenges will become active at that time.

Weekly Challenges must be completed within their active week.

You cannot go back and complete expired challenges once their week has passed.

If you purchase Rocket Pass Premium in a later week during the Rocket Pass 3, you will receive Tier Points for completed Challenges from previous weeks.

For a full list of FAQs, be sure to check out the Rocket Pass 3 website. We hope you enjoy taking on the new Weekly Challenges in Rocket Pass 3. Good luck, have fun, and see you on April 17!

Rocket League - Double XP and Double Painted weekend starts March 7th, 2019

Double up!

Get ready to earn twice the XP and have twice the chance of earning Painted in-game items in Rocket League! As the headline says, starting March 7, you'll be able to take advantage of a 2XP and a Double Painted Weekend!

During this special event, you can earn double the amount of base experience in all Casual, Competitive, and Extra Mode Playlist Matches via the “+100% Special Event” XP bonus. In addition to that bonus, all Crates will also have double the chance of containing Painted items. That means if you have any Crates in your inventory that you haven’t opened yet, this weekend will be a great time to do it!

Also of note is that Rocket Pass 2 ends on March 18, so the weekend event will be a great opportunity to take advantage of the 2XP to Tier-up even faster to get to the Pro Tiers.

The Double Painted item increase only applies to Crates and not Golden Items from in-game events. This is because Golden Items already have increased odds of containing Painted items. Be sure to check out the drop rates for crates here. Here are the start and end times for the Double XP / Doubled Painted Item Weekend:

Start time: Thursday, March 7 at 2:00 p.m. PST / 10:00 p.m. UTC

End time: Monday, March 11 at 10:00 a.m. PDT / 5:00 p.m. UTC

We hope you enjoy this Double XP and Double Painted Item Weekend. As always, good luck and have fun!
