Placement matches have been implemented. For each ranked queue, you play ten placement games and are then sorted into a skill division based on your performance.

“Rocket Labs” experimental playlist is now available for casual Online play
A new rotating casual playlist called “Rocket Labs” is now available! Labs features prototype layouts that use temporary art assets. This allows us to release and gather feedback on new designs much more rapidly than we could otherwise.
Three Lab Maps are now available in the “Rocket Labs” playlist and Private Matches:
New “Uncommon” Item Drops will now be found uncommonly after online matches. This “Uncommon” item quality features all-new Hats and Antennas for you to discover and equip!
Unlike previous seasonal rare drops, these new items don’t have a fixed drop chance after each match. Your chances to find an item after a game will increase for every minute you play until you find something, and then your chance will reset.
Uncommon unlocks are only only awarded after a complete game in online playlists (They are not available for unlock offline modes or in Private matches)
Multiple copies of the same “Uncommon” item can be collected, illustrated with a count number in the Garage UI
There is a maximum of ten hours of playtime per week that can earn items, so don’t bother trying to idle your way to a full inventory!
(BETA) Player Reporting option has been added and can be accessed via the mid-game menu. You can report players who are being offensive and the full chat log of the match will be submitted along with your report for administrative review.

Is mau5ome! See what I did there? But really, it’s great.
Are you upset at the cash grab/cross promotion or that you have to dish out cash now to get the Batmobile?
There’s nothing wrong with cross promotion, and if I was ever offered as much money as I’m sure they were, I would take it in a second, just part of me is sad to see Rocket League go from such an unknown hit to a NASCAR sponsorfest.
I don’t disagree but I’m okay with it. Especially because its occurring way after the release and they’ve been putting out a bunch of free content.
I’m not seeing any Tide, GoDaddy or Viagra cars yet.
Psyonix has announced – via its latest stream – that Rocket League has
sold 4 million copies. This number excludes PS+ owners, as this game was offered for free to them. And according to Steamspy, the PC version of Rocket League has sold 2.7 million copies so far, proving that the game has sold better on the PC than on Sony’s console.
That’s a ton of games and awesome to hear.
For the record, Rocket League – including the PS+ owners – has sold 10 million copies in general.
6 million PS+ downloads?!?! Dang!
Also, I saw in my PS4 feed that @MrBimble got one of the harder trophies in Rocket League (drive 50 km), so I went into a game and the trophy instantly popped for me as well. I wonder if it was bugged before or if it became bugged after the latest patch. Either way, I got the Platinum yesterday!!!
Nice, in-depth interview with a Rocket League dev.
Dying Light is coming.
Rocket League developer Psyonix Studios has discussed becoming the first game to support cross-network multiplayer between the Xbox One and PlayStation 4, saying it has already figured out the technology necessary to bridge the two communities.
Speaking in an interview with GameSpot, Psyonix vice president Jeremy Dunham said the only thing left to work out was the politics of the arrangement.
“The only thing we have to do now is sort of find out where we stand politically with everyone, and then it’s full steam ahead to finish the solution that we’ve already started,” he said.
This is my best video yet, this is a little under 3 weeks of gameplay enjoy!
