New Progression XPTier.jpg

  • Gaining Experience and Leveling Up have been rebuilt from the ground-up
  • Experience (XP)
    • You can now only earn XP in Online Casual & Competitive Matches
    • XP is now primarily based on Match Length, not your score
      • You earn a scaling amount of XP for each second of a match, including Overtime, up to a maximum of 20 minutes
      • A match must be at least 60 seconds long to reward any XP

    • Score
    • MVP
    • Consecutive Games (when you stay in the same Casual server)
    • Backfill (when you replace a bot in a Casual match)
    • Weekly Wins
      • Each day, you accumulate 2 Weekly Win bonuses, up to a maximum of 14 (one week’s worth)
      • Each win earns +200% XP and consumes one of your bonus wins
  • XP is only rewarded if a match is completed
    • Forfeiting a match counts as match completion
  • Match Stats that grant Score have been revised to focus on important events
    • Goals, Assists, Saves, Clears, etc. all still give Score and a notification
    • First Touch, Aerial Hit, Bicycle Hit, and Juggle Hit no longer award Score
      • These stats are still tracked and updated for your Career Stats page
  • Leveling
    • From Level 20 upward, Levels now require a flat amount of XP instead of taking progressively longer to earn
    • The Level 75 cap has been removed; there is no longer a Level cap
    • Conversion
      • All players have been converted to a new Level based on multiple factors, including total Online Matches played and total XP earned
      • Players Level 40 and below convert to roughly the same level as before
      • Players above Level 40 convert to a higher level than before
      • Players who have been capped at Level 75 for some time will gain extra Levels based on total Online Matches played
  • Rewards
    • Avatar Borders
      • Added a new Customization Item: Avatar Borders
      • You unlock new Avatar Borders by leveling up in addition to Titles
      • You can select a Border and customize its coloration from the Garage submenu
      • Borders are unlocked every 25 Levels up to Level 300, after which they are unlocked every 50 Levels
    • Uncommon / “Online” Drops
      • You will now receive a random Uncommon or higher item every time you Level up
      • Uncommon items and higher will no longer drop randomly after matches
    • Common / “Offline” Drops
      • You will now unlock all Common items for a specific Customization Item slot simultaneously, rather than one at a time
      • Each slot’s Common items are unlocked after a set number of total matches played (Online or Offline)
      • You will not lose access to any Common items you have already unlocked
    • Titles
      • Titles are now awarded to your account for reaching specific Levels
        • You will retain any Titles you have previously earned
      • You can equip any Title you have acquired via the “Titles” option in the Garage submenu, not just the highest-level one you possess
        • The ‘Rookie’ and ‘Semi-Pro’ Titles have been removed as part of this change to prevent players from equipping misleading titles for their skill level
      • Legacy XP Titles have had their level requirements adjusted for the new XP system.
        • ‘Veteran’: Level 20
        • ‘Expert’: Level 40
        • ‘Master’: Level 60
        • ‘Legend’: Level 80

Match Forfeit

  • Forfeit Votes can no longer be triggered until 90 seconds have elapsed in a given Competitive Match
    • 1v1 Competitive Matches do not have the 90-second restriction
  • You can still Vote to Forfeit even after another player has left your team
    • Forfeiting allows you to still earn XP and rewards for a match
    • If you “Leave” early you will not earn XP
  • Players can now only trigger one Forfeit vote each unless everyone on their team has also initiated a Forfeit vote

  • You can now form a ‘Club’ with other players
  • A Club consists of:
    • A roster of up to 20 members
    • A Club Name
      • Between 3-32 characters
      • Club Names are not unique
  • A Club Tag
    • Between 2-4 characters
    • Shows before your username on banners, scoreboards, etc.
      • e.g. [PSY] Devone
    • Club Tags are not unique
  • Club Colors
    • Primary & Secondary
  • Club Owner
    • The player who created the Club by default
    • Can add/remove members
    • Ownership can be transferred to another Club member by the owner
    • Club Owners must transfer ownership before they leave a Club
  • Editing Your Club
    • The Club owner can rename a Club (name & tag) once per week
    • The Club owner can change the Club’s colors with no restrictions
  • Club Matches
    • When a Casual or Competitive Match is created and if each team is composed entirely of members of a single Club (one per team), a “Club Match” will be activated
    • Club Matches change the team colors and stadium colors to Club colors
      • If the colors are too similar, we find a suitable color for one team by first attempting to use their Secondary color, then a neutral option
      • Club Members who wish to opt out of this functionality can enable “Force Default Team Colors” under Interface Options
    • Club Names will replace “Blue Team” and “Orange Team” on the scoreboard, and when goals are scored
    • Club Matches do not occur in 1v1 matches, Private Matches, or Tournaments
  • Club Utilities
    • Clubs can set a Message of the Day (MOTD) to easily communicate to all members
    • The Private Match button in the Club Menu lets you quickly and easily create or join a lobby just for your Club
  • Verification
    • Clubs may be “Verified” which adds an exclusive checkmark by their name on the in-game scoreboard
    • This verification flag guarantees a particular club / player is the “real” one verified by Psyonix
    • Club Tags and Names are unique among Verified Clubs, but are not globally unique
    • Changing a Verified Club’s name or tag will cause it to lose verified status
    • Verification will only be made available to select partners and esports organizations Cross-Platform
    • Clubs support cross-platform membership, but you will not be able to invite cross-platform players until the RocketID system is released later this year

Text Filtering

  • Implemented a new real-time text filtering system that applies to the following cases on all platforms:
    • Player Names
    • Club Names & Tags
    • Tournament Names and Team Names

  • Chat will be added to this filter system in a future update
