Rocket League is completely revamping how is tournaments work, including changes to how Ranked mode intertwines with tournaments, rules regarding entry, and rewards within tournaments. It comes as Rocket League prepares to go free-to-play, something which will likely happen on or before September 1, when the new season gets underway.
Rocket League says this restructure is aimed at allowing players to "feel the competitive energy of what it's like playing in Rocket League Esports", regardless of their rank. Once the season kicks off (should that be drives off?), tournaments will happen daily, and will allow players to climb through ranks with successive victories.
The daily tournaments are region specific, and feature teams of 3 v 3. Players can either compete as a ready built squad or can solo queue and be matched with players of similar rank and ability. There are no limits to how many tournaments any player joins, but bans are handed out for early quitters. Read the rest of the story...
