I can't: see the birthday event, connect to online matches

Postby ChrisHgrobro on Thu Jul 12, 2018 8:33 am

Hi!

I hope someone can help me, because Psyonix doesn't seem to know what to do anymore.

Since the 3rd anniversary update I can't queue up for online matches. (need to be in a group and make my mates queue us up. No solo games for me right now)

And - that is really confusing - I don't see any features of the birthday event at all.

Instead of balloons I keep getting 'shells' which appear as a black picture.

What I tried so far to fix these issues:

Restart the game, Steam and my Computer.

Reinstall Rocket League and Steam.

Make sure antivirus isn't an issue.

CMD ... ipconfig/release/renew/flushdns

erase Steam cache

Validate game data via Steam

Start Rocket League and Steam straight from the .exe

Update drivers
...

The funny thing is: I don't have any issues with my laptop (that's too bad to really play Rocket League though)


Can please someone help me? :(

Thanks in advance!

sounds like my issue here : viewtopic.php?f=34&t=43744

I've also raised a ticket on https://support.rocketleague.com - they acknowledge it's a strange issue - suggested deleting <My Documents>\My Games\Rocket League\TAGame\Cache which didn't work for me, but might for you?... I'm awaiting next steps

oh, by the way - if you leave the matchmaking for a minute or two, it 'comes alive' and you can queue for matches - I just go into training for a bit, and keep checking for online games - takes a minute or two, but is fine after the first one

Wow, thanks for your reply!

Didn't actually think there is someone who experiences the same bug ;)

Good hint, I'll try that. Even though I don't think it will work for me if it didn't for you :(

Ok, seems I've got a workaround/fix....

My IP address is being blocked by certain internet servers due to someone behind my IP (shared with 10 other customers at my ISP) is detected with a virus or other malicious traffic.
I can see this even on my mobile and other things...

anyway to the fix that worked for me.

Get an internet conecetion via another method - e.g. Tether your mobile phone via USB/Bluetooth and disconnect your normal internet for a moment - you only need this when you launch RocketLeague - you'll then see all the matchmaking lists and the special event. *YOU CAN THEN GO BACK TO YOUR NORMAL INTERNET CONNECTION AND DISCONNECT THE TEMPORARY (mobile phone) ONE*

At that point you can matchmake and claim rewards, see the baloons etc.

Good luck!
