Heatseeker Mode makes the ball go straight towards the goal, if it doesn't hit or hit the grid behind the goal, it goes straight back towards the opponent's goal. Speed ​​Demon mode will use the Boomer Ball (it makes the ball move faster and respawn in less time). Full details of these new modes will be released to players near their release.

Features and Changes in This Update

Secure music feature for streamers

Good news for Rocket League streams: A new audio option to turn off copyright protected music will be added. This will help prevent content creators from having their streams or videos removed due to copyright infringement.

By checking the “Streamer Safe Music (Only)” box in Audio Settings, DMCA protected audios will be muted or replaced with free-to-use music. This setting will affect both Rocket League Radio and player anthems.

Matchmaking Update for Ranked Matches

After the upgrade, players queuing in ranked match lists in an undersized group (a group of two players in the standard 3×3 Competitive, or a group of two players joining a standard 3×3 Tournament) will have to be within three Rankings of each other to join the queue. This is so that the third partner is found through a match and joins a team that has approximately the same Ranking as the other team members.

For example, if one party member is Platinum II and another is Diamond III (a difference of four Rankings), they cannot queue in the 3×3 pattern. However, if one is Platinum III and the other is Diamond III (a difference of three Rankings), they can join the queue. New players will only be allowed to queue up with players rated Gold III or lower if they are in an undersized group.

This change does not take Ranking Divisions into account and does not affect groups of two players who want to join 2×2 queues, Casual Playlists or any Extra Mode Playlists.

New Measures Against Rage Quit

To prevent players from suddenly leaving Casual Matches, Psyonix has created new rules for abandoning matches and punishments. With the update, the possibility of withdrawing from Casual Matches will be added, as with Competitive Matches. If all players on a team vote in favour, the Casual Match will end, as if it were a Competitive Match.

With the addition of the fold option, we're also adding matching bans for players who abandon multiple casual matches. For players who leave Casual Matches only occasionally (eg power outage), there will be no penalty for leaving one casual match per day. However, bans will get longer as more Casual Matches are abandoned.
