New features and changes with this update
“Safe Music Live Streaming”
A new audio setting has been added that allows you to hide copyrighted music. This allows content creators to prevent their streams or videos from becoming unavailable due to DMCA violations. If you check the “Streamer Safe Music (Only)” checkbox in the audio settings, DMCA-protected audio files will be muted or replaced with freely available music. This setting affects Rocket League Radio and player anthems.
Classification limitations for very small groups
After the update, players who want to queue up ranked playlists in a very small group (two players in standard 3v3 competitive games or a standard 3v3 tournament) may have teams of up to three rows. This ensures that the third teammate found through the opponent’s research has a similar rank to his teammates. For example, Platinum II and Diamond III (Team Four) players cannot join the queue for standard 3v3 games. With the Platinum III and Diamond III ranks (the difference of the three ranks) this is possible without any problems. Entirely new players in a very small group can join the queue with players not exceeding Gold III rank.
This change does not take into account individual rank splits and does not affect groups of two who wish to queue 2v2, casual playlists, or add-on playlists. We hope this change will improve the competitive experience for those of you who are individually in the 3v3 queue.
Casual game improvements
We know it can be frustrating when your teammates leave unofficial matches prematurely, and we’ve done something to improve your experience. After the update, there is an option to forgo casual games just like competitive games. If all the players on the team vote to surrender, the casual game will end like a competitive game. With the ability to give in, we will also prevent players who repeatedly leave casual games from being matched. Players who occasionally leave casual games will not be penalized as long as they leave no more than one casual game per day. The length of the ban increases as the player leaves Casual Games. We hope that these and some other changes will improve the experience for players who prefer casual rather than competitive gameplay in Rocket League.
