Tournaments Beta Launches

The PC-only Tournaments beta began last Wednesday and was extended through yesterday morning.

Tournaments introduces an easy-to-use single-elimination bracket format to Rocket League. Players simply browse a listing of tournaments, sign-up, and are automatically pulled into their matches. Organizers are able to configure a myriad of options, including:

  • Game Modes: Soccar, Hoops, Snow Day, Rumble, Dropshot
  • Team Sizes: 1v1, 2v2, 3v3, 4v4
  • Bracket Size: 8-128 entrants
  • Rounds: Best-of-1, Best-of-3, Best-of-5, Best-of-7
  • Ranks: Mininum and Maximum
  • Permissions: Public and Private events

Tournaments will be released in March or April with the Spring feature update.

Quality-of-Life Features

In addition to the new Tournaments feature, the beta also included multiple new Quality-of-Life features:

  • Primary color options have been expanded.
  • Items can be pushed to the top of their list by favoriting them.
  • Cars can be equipped by team color.
  • Network settings (client send rate, server send rate, and bandwith limit) can be adjusted in-game.
  • Informational connection quality notifications can be enabled.
  • Match notifications (time updates and kickoffs) can be enabled or disabled.

Notice: The above is a list of prominent features and should not be considered comprehensive.
