Rocket League Items will seem pretty natural to you


In case you have been living under a rock, or on the WoW servers, Rocket League is a competitive soccer game made by Psyonix, where instead of using pesky things like legs or feet to hit the ball, they make it easy for you to sit back and relax in your rocket-powered car. Surprisingly Rocket League is a sequel to their first attempt at "soccer with cars" which was appropriately called, Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars. Through the years Psyonix has added a plethora of game modes which have kept a consistent flow of new players buying the game long after release. It is exactly those magical, player-attracting game modes which I want to introduce to you today.

If you have played any game with some sort of ranking system, the competitive playlists in Rocket League Items will seem pretty natural to you. It's a simple algorithm which awards you with a rank and a division depending on how much your winning and losing. Ranks range from Bronze to Grand Champion with much in between. Every time you enter a competitive playlist you are putting your hard earned rank on the line, so be careful about who you're playing with.

Only some playlists are competitive, for those who just want to have fun without the pressure, or exhilaration, of a competitive match, there are 4 casual playlists to choose from. 1v1, 2v2, 3v3, and 4v4, each having a twin in the competitive playlists, except for 4v4, instead, there is a 3v3 solo playlist which allows people with no team or party to play in balanced matches. For those who have an itch for the abstract and funky, there are 4 alternative playlists that have become ranked in the September Season 9 update. The one I would like to speak about today was the first alternative mode introduced into the game, Snow Day.
