Next week sees the launch of our massive Autumn Update, and there are a few features we want to highlight before the big day on September 28!

 

LOCAL MATCHES: IT’S LAN PARTY TIME!

 

Rocket League on PC is getting a Local Match option at long last. This means you will be able to host and join LAN matches without the need for an internet connection! You and up to seven of your LAN party-going friends will be able to join the same match and enjoy all of the different game modes, Arenas, and Mutators that Rocket League has to offer -- think Private Matches, but offline with no need to select a server region.

Creating and hosting a Local Match will feel very familiar if you have ever created an Exhibition Match or Private Match before. Joining a Local Match will bring up a new window, seen below, which will display any Local Match currently available on your network.

 

Local Matches are PC-only for now, but we hope to include Local Match play for consoles in a future update.

DIRECTOR MODE BETA

 

The Autumn Update will also see a significant but experimental addition to spectating and Replays: ‘Director Mode’ comes with the update as a beta feature, putting an AI in charge of camera movement and placement while you watch Replays, or spectate matches. Powered by a deep analysis of match data and a brand new camera-controlling AI, Director Mode aims to give viewers the best position possible without pushing a button. The automated control will be especially relevant when it comes to choosing which Player Camera to focus on, and when to switch to a different player. Whether you’re streaming or spectating, having the speed and knowledge to shift between specific players, instead of opting for wider shots, can make or break the look and feel of a video or stream.

Director Mode lives with the rest of the Camera Options available to you while spectating or watching Replays, and is a completely optional function. Watching the new mode at work can help inform you on how to set up manual controls later on, while those new to the streaming scene can use Director Mode to easily showcase matches to their followers.

 

As always, please send us questions about Local Play and Director Mode on social, or on the subreddit. We can’t wait to share the rest of the Autumn Update with you next week!

This is really going to be a new era for our community :)

Better live events (of all shapes and sizes) thanks to LAN play

Better broadcasts thanks to Director Mode

Praise be to Psyonix

"We can’t wait to share the rest of the Autumn Update with you next week!" There's more?!?!?!?

I'm so incredibly excited for the LAN capabilities. It's hard to put into words. If you've never played on 0 ping, it's something you need to try

Dude there's WAY more. Check their previous two blog posts.

Espeon retiring from competitive RL

Espeon retiring from competitive RL

Hope he has time to at least do some casting. He's been pretty dope as an analyst, both for RLCS and GoldRush.

I would love to see more of Deskeon.

That sucks about not being able to seriously compete at Rocket League anymore, but getting a job at Facebook is freaking dope. Having a job like that can potentially open so many more doors for you.

Really stoked for him.

How did you figure out my fallback career?

What the hell are you doing here of all places lol.

But if you actually need advice on how to improve I can help.

I had the impression you were kinda cool before. Now, I know you are.

The white Portal boost

Nothing says "I'm 11" like the conversion gel boost

That boost is nothing without the Pidgeon topper!

Thx. Sorry. I debated and told myself "it's just champagne" but then the girl sitting next to me at work filed a harassment complaint.

Aint nothing like jizzin on the opposing team after a good game.

FTFY

A regular Friday night random cars Rumble with friends

The way he just backs up kinda looks like when a cat is readying up an attack hhhhhhhh

These ISIS videos are getting crazy with their effects.

Edit: I didn't see what sub I was on. I thought this was /sub/wtf.

As soon as he started backing up all intentions became clear.

Happens all the time

Happens all the time

It's always a good feeling, though, when you're thinking about adding them and then getting a friend request before you make the decision.

And then never playing with them again and removing them from your friends list 3 months later because it's just awaked at this point

When u/red_10 carries you to Plat and then leaves you on your own

Or instead you become a team and win many doubles tournaments

A summary of the Rocket League communities' great sportsmanship

A summary of the Rocket League communities' great sportsmanship

So for once I actually chose to chill and play some 1s, which I almost never do. I'm plat 2 in that playlist, and my strongsuit in RL is mainly aerials, teamplay and rotational skills, so I really play like a potato in 1s.

So i queue up, and meet a guy who clearly is better than me. He's up 6-0 after like two minutes but after that I get the hang of it, and the game ends 8-3. The player was kind to me, said GG, gave me "nice shot" when I outplayed him for a goal. You get the picture.

I meet him immediately again in the next match. I'm kinda warm now, so it's a fairly even match, but in the end he wins it 6-5. Same again, GG's in the chat, a nice tone between us and all of that. (he also ranked up in this game, so I can imagine he's pretty content)

And of course I meet him for the 3rd time in a row, and now I'm warm and ready to go. I go up to 3-0 in the first minute as I've figured him out and I'm making him outplay himself. He's furious. He's dropping "omfg lucky"'s all over the place. He's as toxic as they come. And of course, when I win the game 6-3 in the end, he calls me trash af, and says he threw.

Moral of the story... I don't know, just thought this was pretty funny and wanted to share it with someone. And apparently you're good at the game in your opponents eyes until you're beating him. Then you become trash.

TLDR: RL players be sore losers, y'all.

Cheers.

Everyone is a saint when they're winning. Losing shows your true colours

I was once playing with my friends in casual when these two people on the other team were spending the entire game trash talking us for being bad. They ended up winning both games and just spent the entire time shit talking. It's funny to think about that people can be so toxic in casual even when they're winning.

It's because they're actually awful and try hard in casuals and shittalk to pick their self esteem up a little. Usually

What I say in chat during a Ranked Solo Duel that I win:

Nice Shot! (Whenever my opponent scores)

Thanks! (Whenever my opponent gives me a "Nice Shot!" when I score)

gg Well played (At the end of the game)

No need to be toxic, learned it doesn't help me improve.

OP is right that it is a trend that when players are losing/lose is when they show their true colors.

To all the toxic people out there, you do you, but I'm not gonna return the toxicity, it's not worth my time.

Laffer and FoundCarpet

Rocket League, so accessible even the Amish are playing it.

How can you not see it? Its a budget lawler and a budget findablecarpet

Psyonix could at least providem them some suits

Jeez

I just cried playing

I just cried playing

I hit champion.

Three fucking times this week I've made it to Diamond 3 Div 4, and then deranked hard because of bad teammates. It was the most frustrating thing I've ever dealt with in this game.

Today, I had a two hour session, starting at division one of diamond 3. I pushed as hard as I could. After about an hour and 15 minutes, I was at division four. And I stayed there for 45 minutes, just going win/loss/win/loss. It was so stressful. A win or loss meant so much. A win: Possible champion. A loss: possible slippery slope back down to division 1. 2 hours in, I hit my last game and I've never been more focused playing. It was so stressful.

We were up a goal, and when the clock hit zero and we won the match. I crossed my hands and brought them up to my nose and closed my eyes. I waited for the rank up sound.

When I heard it, I just broke down in tears. So much frustration, nonsense, and grinding to make it here.

Wow. Certainly not the post I expected to get guilded. Thank you, certainly made my morning a little better.

I cry every night going back and forth from gold 1 & 2

Congrats but what the hell dude

Sh bby is ok

@pysonix staff: how many (if any) of the current game mechanics did you not know were possible when you first made the game?

I am talking about if they knew people could flick, air dribble, ceiling shot, half flip etc. when they made the game and they were waiting for someone to discover them/learn how to do them.

Can you imagine rocket league without aerialing?

Imagine it? I live it every day!

Excellent question! Wavedashing, for me. It's the circle strafe jump (where my Quake III fans at?) of Rocket League.

Great fucking question! Actually excited to hear some answers
