Rocket League’s Anniversary Event Starts July 9

Can you believe Rocket League is nearly THREE years old and Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars is about to turn TEN? Oh, how time flies! To celebrate both milestones, we’re throwing an in-game birthday bash Event and you’re all invited!

Our Anniversary Event will run from July 9 to July 23 (timing details below) and will work a bit differently than our previous in-game Events. For starters, we’re adding an all-new 3v3 ‘Anniversary’ Playlist to the Casual Playlists page, featuring an inspired ‘Throwback Stadium’ that veteran SARPBC players may recognize! The goal layout, in particular, is a departure from the modern goal positions seen in the rest of Rocket League’s Arenas, but it does harken back to the old-school days of Battle-Cars, which should tickle the old nostalgia feels quite nicely. (Note: Throwback will also feature SARPBC-style ball weight, so expect the ball on Throwback - and only Throwback - to act a little ‘lighter’ than normal.)

Image

We’re changing up how you earn Customization Items during the Anniversary Event as well. There will be no Event Crates this time around, with all of the new items available by redeeming SARPBC 10th Anniversary-themed ‘Balloons,’ which are earned by playing matches online. Check out screenshots of some of the items below!

Along with new items up for grabs, you'll also be able to redeem Balloons for a new type of Anniversary surprise! These ‘Golden Eggs’ do not require a Key or Decryptor to unlock, so just crack up to ten of ‘em open to find one of over 60 possible Customization Items from our retired Champions Series Crates.

  • Anniversary Event Start Time: Monday, July 9, 10am PDT (1pm EDT, 7pm CEST)
  • Anniversary Event End Time: Monday, July 23, 5pm PDT (8pm EDT, 2am CEST on July 24)
  • Anniversary Event ‘Balloons’ Expire: Monday, July 23, 5pm PDT (8pm EDT, 2am CEST on July 24)
    • The Anniversary Event ‘Balloons’ expire as soon as the Event concludes. There is no one-week redemption grace period.
We hope to see you at the in-game party next month, and THANK YOU to our amazing community for sticking with Rocket League and SARPBC throughout the last decade. We wouldn’t be here without your dedication, your passion and your feedback. Here’s to the next ten years!
FAQ
Will I be able to redeem Anniversary Event ‘Balloons’ after the Event ends on July 23?

No, Balloons expire as soon as the Event concludes at 5pm PDT on July 23.

Can I trade in items I get from Golden Eggs?

Yes! Golden Egg items can be traded in with other Golden Egg items. The Golden Egg is its own series, so these items cannot be traded in with Crate items.

Where can I play Throwback Stadium?

Throwback Stadium can be played in the Anniversary Playlist. We will be adding Throwback as a playable Arena in Private Matches, Tournaments, and Local Matches in our next major update.

I'm trying really hard to focus on the fact that we're FINALLY getting a proper hockey arena.

That is a little tough when I'm laughing so hard about the "no crates this time around" statement, followed by the description of the "eggs" we'll be getting in their place.
An egg-shaped box, containing a random reward item, sounds EXACTLY like a crate to me, even if it doesn't require a key to open it.

Back to hockey though... because THAT is the more important topic here.
Now all we need is real ice, and we'll be set.
I've never understood why "floor friction" isn't a variable, under mutators, especially for Snow Day.

so the throwback map was so exciting to see....then I see

Throwback will also feature SARPBC-style ball weight, so expect the ball on Throwback - and only Throwback - to act a little ‘lighter’ than normal.)


Why would you do that? It will for sure screw people up. Just getting the map was good enough. We have been wanting more unique maps. You do what we want then put different ball mechanics? lol

I apparently missed that in all my excitement about finally having a proper hockey arena.

I will never cease to be baffled by some of the decisions Psyonix makes.
After all the feedback regarding minor changes to the arenas themselves, who thought screwing with the ball physics would be a good idea?
More importantly, how did that decision make it through committee?

I can't wait for this arena (I hope my PC will stand it), this delicious birthday cake topper and this wheels (unless if they are Psyonix employees exclusive), and drive the Renegade :renegade: ... oh wait.

Two events in a row, this game don't let me rest on other games. :mrgreen:

I wish to see Renegade car from SARPBC return as playable in Rocket League. :renegade:

I've got one garbage decal already from my first egg. What a waste of 150 points. Cut the crap Psyonix and just leave the good stuff in the eggs please.

Eventually, even a mule realizes the carrot on the string is a scam and quits pulling the cart. But for some reason many here continue to open crates, continue to receive garbage and continue pulling the cart. Enjoy your yoke and reigns.

I wasn't complaining about the crate drops, I know that's all a big scam. Lately, I let others open the crates, then trade their good stuff for more crates to open. Lol.
Anyway, I was fed up at wasting time on grinding points to only get a crap decal. I can't be too mad though as it was free, but I'm sure somebody will trade a key for it.

This is actually one of my favorite updates since the items are cool and I do enjoy playing on the new (old) map!

Absolutely love the new map! I really think with the bigger size it would be better as a 4v4. I hope you keep this map as one we can choose from! Great job on the map, it is a l9t of fun to play.

Where's the cash item store? I'll head straight there (as soon as it has my Black Market Finn Balor decal.)

Missed one there. Where's "Why is there no grace period like every previous event?"
