Rocket league was once a great game with great creators that cared solely about making a great game for their great community of proud players and supporters. But recently it has taken a turn for the worst. The pure game we once knew has been a slowly slipping away from us. 

In my mind, there are three things that make rocket league great. First and foremost Is the game it’s self (playing soccer with cars), second is the relationship between psyonix and its players, and lastly is the ability to trade items with other players. 

the game is great, it has been designed well so that while it might sound simple and silly, playing soccer with cars, it has become something the requires true skill and team work to be successful at. The perfect recipe for a game that rewards those with what they put into it. It is not a pay to win or pay to play game. 

the relationship between a games creators and community of players is vital to its success and overall future of the game. Before epic games purchased rocket league, psyonix had come up with lots of cool ways to interact and give back to its community. Things like the white hat, special one off player titles, and of course taking advice about what to leave in the game, take out of the game and even add to the game. Everyone who played rocket league played because they loved the game, and they knew that the creators had the well being of the game and community in mind. 

lastly is the aspect of trading. Since the advent of Fortnite, everyone has added a pass that will give players in game items for leveling up. But no one has had the idea of making special edition items or special colored variants. Let alone allowing players to trade these items for other items or even in game currency. This adds a few things to being a delicates player. It adds something to be desired. Rocket league items bring customizing your car to a whole new level. It allows for plates to be creative and show off their own version of cool. They can be one of a kind. It also allows for them to “make some profit.”  Items eventually gained prices based on things like popularity or rarity of the item. This made people want the good items even more and if you just so happen to get on of these expensive items it makes for a great day. This idea of having the chance to get lots of cool items or to trade for the items you want and not want sets rocket league apart from other games. But now enters our problem. 

the problem is that the game has started to move in a direction that takes away these features that once made rocket league the game that people proved to play. They loved to play because it was truly an enjoyable game. Not because they felt like they had to grind out a bunch of challenges before the season was over. They wanted to rank up and become better while enjoying time with friends. 

but over time things have changed. Things like game play, the addition of an item shop, blueprints,  cross platform, free to play and even tournaments. Now not all of these things are the cause of the problem but they do all play a part. While There are many underlying reasons that some of these changes are not changing rocket league for the better the biggest, most obvious, and most recent one I want to focus on is the changes made to season 3s pass. 

this season, after tier 70 everyone gets the same item for the same tier. Now this causes several issues. First being that it has been done under the pretenses of the same reasoning for getting rid of crates is that it seems too much like gambling as before the tiers were random. This is drastically different than purchasing a crate with credits and purchasing a pass with credits.

Second is that limited items or all items that come from the pass make up about 90% or more of all items in game. That means that there is only 10% of items out there that someone else might not have and you might or vise versa. In short it will make trading obsolete. Which is probably the biggest thing that makes rocket league different than other games. Let alone how cool it is and how much of a part of the community it is. In my mind, making a change that would make trading obsolete is a real slap in the face to the community. It shows that the creators are no longer looking out for the best interest of their players. Without the players, there is no game. 

Help make rocket league great again by making your voice heard and don’t allow the features of the game that you enjoy most be taken from you. After all, you help make the game what it is.
