    • Extra Modes are only available on certain Arenas as labeled in the Free Play Arena selection window

    • No Stats: You will not receive any notification during matches
    • Main Stats Only: notifications for the following will appear:
      • Assist

      • Save
      • Shot
      • Demolition
    • All Stats: All in-game notifications are displayed
  • "Input Buffer" option added to the Gameplay Options menu
    • This setting controls which method the game uses to send your gameplay inputs to our servers. These methods are:
      • Legacy - The default option used since Rocket League launched.
      • STS (Sim Time Scaling) - This allows the game server to instruct your client to very subtly speed up or slow down in order to maintain a smooth input stream.
      • CSTS (Continuous Sim Time Scaling) - A more aggressive version of STS that uses a continuous feedback loop to determine game speed.
    • Both STS and CSTS are newer strategies for latency mitigation that may be more effective for players with connectivity issues, spotty Wi-Fi, etc. than the Legacy method
    • If you experience connectivity issues during a match, you should try switching from Legacy to STS or CSTS. If you see no improvement, change back to Legacy

BUG FIXES
General
  • Fixed a bug preventing players from reconnecting to a match after a disconnection from the server
    • Please note that you will still not be able to rejoin if the match you were in has already ended
  • Fixed a bug causing spectator camera control UI to reappear after any goal is scored
  • Tournament creators no longer receive an error when trying to spectate matches
  • [Xbox One] The game app will no longer crash when returning from a suspended state when using Instant-on Mode

I think we have new audio issues. I saw the question raised in a stream, however no particulars were mentioned. For me, at some point, boost sound is gone.
So now the signature is gone which means I gotta find some kind of original signature to put here instead. Let me just say I'm really bad at coming up with original stuff out of the blue.. just not something I typically do. Reeee I can only use 255 chars.

How can I invite people with rocket Id? I go to create party and I have 2 tabs, one for friends on steam, the other for rocket Id friends. The rocket id list is empty and I have no option to add players. I also don’t have any recent players list. I’m confused.

Edit: figure it out, gotta hit RT or R2

Yes, there is a lot of sound problems now. I noticed weird sound when I click on "Play Online" button or another weird sound when I leave the match, also sometimes when I hit the ball it doesn't make any sound at all but the main problem for me are the silent engine sounds, when I play a match those car engines are so silent that I almost can't hear them, it's pretty annoying. I guess there will be even more problems like this, hopefully it will be fixed soon.

Spotify does not work right on PS4 since update. In game music used to mute when spotify was playing but now plays simultaneous.
When leaving a completed match, right before the screen changes to the load screen, there is an audio pop.

The sound is a known bug, a fix is on its way. I personally like it except the under water sound when you slightly pass the ball.

Another note regarding the audio. It is super loud in free play (would say all sounds).

It sounds like the audio when you hit the ball with your car is getting duplicated, but maybe the new SFX is intended.

Also, I was in a game yesterday in which I would occasionally hear what sounds like someone stepping on broken glass. Maybe this is coming from someone's boost. In any case, the audio for whatever this sound was is way too loud, and it wasn't being affected by the distance between me and the source. Both my teammate and I were experiencing this weird noise the whole game.

The audio priority rebalancing made the music in menu screens noticeably louder than any other music in-game. I don't know if this was intended, but I don't think it was a good idea.

Does this mean you can trade with friends on different platforms as well? I have an account on PSN that I don't use anymore (basically I bought it for PC but my set-up was terrible and since my dad had it on PS4 I often played on that with the family share thing, until I got a PC upgrade) and I had some REALLY good items that I'd like to have (namely Hypnotik wheels and a Taco rocket boost) on PC. If so, I'd like to log on through PSN one last time, trade everything over to my PC account and forget about it.

Otherwise if there's already a way to transfer items between two accounts owned by one person please let me know.

There is currently no way to trade across platforms, and Psyonix has said they have no plans to pursue the issue, at this time.

Even if Psyonix did try, I doubt they could get it approved by any of the third party companies involved, especially Sony.
Every item transferred from one platform to another would be lost revenue for the platform the items were sent to, so there's not really any incentive for those companies to approve the idea.
