Psyonix has announced that their incredibly popular multi-platform game, Rocket League, will receive an update tomorrow. It will mark the start of Competitive Season 7 and some improvements with regards to rank distribution will also be activated. Here’s a snippet of what the team behind the title are implementing tomorrow:
It all begins in the first half of February, with a soft reset to go along with it. The reset means that once season seven begins, you’ll need to complete a set of ten placement matches per playlist to be officially ranked (note: winning half of your placement matches should likely put you back at or near your previous Season 6 rank). League Rankings will be temporarily empty once the soft reset occurs.
We’ve also taken some of your feedback on rank distribution, and we’re making a few adjustments in Duel (1v1) and Solo Standard (3v3) playlists to bring a higher percentage of those players into the Champion and Grand Champion ranks.
