Will the banners have the text rookie - legend on them when they are given out? If so, it seems a little confusing given that those are the names of the levels and not rank (it makes it feel a little cheaper since levels are given to you after so much play and rank is earned.) If not, what will be in their place? The part that feels most confusing is that during a season, ranked play goes by the different ranks and to have rewards not even mention, or display the familiar symbols we've become accustomed to seeing somewhere in the rewards.

I've had a thought. Since it seems as though the community likes to get worked up regarding season rewards, and although gifs are a good way to get people a taste of what they'll be, what about adding a spot in the showroom for displaying the season rewards? This way people can actually see it in game and have a better idea of what they will be? It could be an add-on to the current showroom or a separate showroom altogether. I wonder if that would give the community a more accurate idea of what's going to happen.


The banners will not have the titles attached to them. They will follow the same protocol that normal banners do, so you can pick your own in-game name and title. Also, thanks for the suggestion :)

Why?
I'd actually prefer they quit giving me this stuff because all it does is clutter up my inventory screens.
If they really want to make ME grateful about season rewards/free giveaways, they should give me a way to hide all the stuff I don't want to look at in my inventory screens.


What kind of ideas do you have for hiding items? I have seen various ideas shared about what would essentially be a Garage Vault, but I'd like to know what you would like in such a feature.

We will have more information on an exact date when we are closer to the end of Season 7. For now, all we can say is late May.

In regards to the Goal Explosions, Diamond Rank should be in the same bracket as Gold and Platinum.

Striker Legend should be reserved for Champion and Grand Champion; this coming from a Platinum Rank (currently).

Psyonix: We're going to stop matching the season ranked rewards with the colors of the ranks themselves in order to allow for more artistic variety

Players: what the hell Sionics why isn't the color matching, you guys are such trolls lmao

First, and foremost, NONE of the season rewards should show in the "manage inventory" screen, at all, ever.

That entire screen is there for the purpose of "managing your inventory".
If I can't trade it up, and I can't trade it to other people, how am I supposed to "manage" it?
The same should hold true for anything else that's untradeable.
The untradeable stuff would still show in the appropriate Garage menus, where you can actually USE it, and equip it to your car.

As far as SELECTIVELY hiding things goes, I would also love to see a toggle for each item, like there is for favorites, that would allow me to show/hide particular items.
Then there could be a "Show All" option, to temporarily make hidden items visible.
This would allow people to pare down their visible inventory to only things they are interested in trading, making everything associated with the process much more streamlined.

Plus hiding all of my other decals would make it easier to select my Finn Balor black market decal that I paid $19.99 for...

I wonder if they all take turns at designing items in the game, simply because some items are way better than others. The season 5 banner is way nicer looking than the ones on offer this time around.

I like the idea of what they have done, I just feel it could of been executed better. The fact I prefer the look of the banner for reaching lower leagues such as gold says a lot. I do like where they are heading but there will definitely be some bumps on the road to pleasing everyone

The thing is I'm fine with new colors for the ranks, but then select a "theme" for example the theme for the ranked season is starbase arc and use colors and design that can be found on that map but give them enough animation and thought so that the individual rank's "status" can be distinguished (Champ being the flashiest etc).

Distinguishing GC from Champ is fine but then they should share the same colors only the pattern or the animation should be different (tho IMO, GC and Champ having the same reward is fine since GC gets the title and honestly anyone who grinds GC does it for the ranked experience not to have different reward compared to Champs).

As for the goal explosions, yes they are cool but there's no reason not to give Champ and GC a different one, just color change it and increase the amount of particles that flies out a bit and it's done. While they're only the top x% that's exactly why you can't group them together with Plats and Diamonds even in a bonus reward because it's the "dream" of many to be part of that "elite" so it must keep it's "royalty".

Honestly las year's diamond vs plat reward should've given you a good example that we as consumers are picky about what we get for our achievments because it has to hit certain standards compared to previous seasons.

Maybe the best way would be to show us the rewards earlier so you can listen to our feedback instead of doing it late and then either not changing it leaving players unsatisfied or making extra work to change it.

This is a unique game that does well even with those monsters out on the market so you should really just build the game together with the community, even with the banners if you ask us for feedback we would've complained "why banners they were before hurr-durr", but in the end there would've been a couple of really good comments and ideas to improve these banners.

(On that note It's true that we got banners before and Goal Explosion would've been new so you should've just made Goal Ex as the standard reward and banners as a bonus then you could've gotten artistic with them and no one would've complained that it has a different color scheme).

Actually glad i've left rankeds for the last week, I would've been really sad to see this (banners again that i'll probably wont use after the first week) if I've grinded for weeks or even months, It's just... I can see why some are unhappy.

The goals explosions look Good and the banners are nice it's just people don't care that much about banners.

Best of luck for next season and I do hope you guys will reach out to us!:) Really looking forward to the summer updates!

I have two issues with the rewards:

One is that I grinded my ass to get to champ and that Red banner looks sick! I want that animated instead of the tier 6 gold animated banner
The second issue is in the discontinuity you guys generated on goal explosions names. Since the beginnings of Rocket league Pro is associated with a beginners account and legend with a more adept one, but you seem to disregard the naming and color conventions for this one

Btw... I've always hated the purple color for champion rewards. It doesn't combine with anything. So I'm good with the new colors (if only the red one was animated and for champs xD)
On the subject of goal explosion,I think a good middle ground would be making the hue/color selectable so lower tiers get less colors, up to grandchamps which could use the whole color pallete
