Why does it take so many games to get my season reward ?

Postby jonnykb on Fri Jul 13, 2018 8:22 pm

I know it was changed to be like this a long time ago, but I really feel like the amount of games needed to get your reward is too much. As someone who doesn't have as much time to play competitive, but is in a diamond rank, there are multiple seasons where I havent even gotten the reward cosmetic for the rank I was in the entire season. Which is just to me ridiculous.

I know it was changed because the game puts you into the rank you were the season before now, but I feel like the total number of games required to play in the higher ranks just to get your season reward is a little bit too high. As a diamond player, I must win 10 unranked, bronze, silver, gold, plat, and finally diamond just to get the cosmetic. At a 50% win rate that is 100 games of comp in one season. Isn't that a little bit too high?



I feel like if you win a game in say diamond, but you still have say, a bronze reward level that it should count as 2 wins towards that meter. Ever since this change to the game, I feel like comp has turned from an fun goal of reaching that rank each season to just a endless grind that I cannot be bothered to finish sometimes.

A season is about 4 months, or rounded down to 120 days

~100 games across ~120 days is around .83 games/day or 5.83 games/week :mrgreen:

Keep people playing, slow down smurfing, make you actually earn your reward.

Some people enjoy the meaningless window dressing tho. Not everybody is fancy Season X GC title material so for many a flashy set of wheels or boost trail is a visual representation of their performance for that season, and it's a reward for the work they put in to get to whatever rank they achieved.

Right, and if they don't put in any work, they shouldn't receive the reward. 5,83 Games per week really isn't all that much, it's 2,5 hours a month.
If sb. can't spare 2,5 hours of free time a month for Rocket League, that person either needs to change its life or doesn't care about Rocket League anyways, which begs the question why a complaint here is necessary.
