Rocket League is working a double XP weekend for the primary time ever
For the longest time, expertise factors didn’t matter in Rocket League. They merely existed to make the cumulative numbers go increased and better. XP wasn’t actually connected to something aside from a tough estimate of how lengthy somebody had spent enjoying the sport (which was then rendered moot for anybody who hit the extent cap which got here at degree 75).
That has drastically modified prior to now month-or-so. Psyonix has eliminated Rocket League‘s degree cap and reconfigured the way in which merchandise drops work. Now, a random merchandise accompanies each new degree earned. It is paired with the recently-introduced Rocket Move system which awards its personal gadgets at every new degree. For anybody who cares in any respect about Rocket League‘s cosmetics, expertise factors matter an entire lot now. They’re the only real gatekeeper to all non-crate gadgets. It has been fairly the 180-degree flip.
It lastly is smart for Psyonix to run a double XP weekend. Beginning in the present day (the occasion is reside as of 4pm Pacific) enjoying Rocket League will yield twice as a lot XP. That immediately correlates to twice as many merchandise drops. It ends on Monday October 15 at 10am Pacific.
Rocket League has had related occasions prior to now, like weekends the place gadgets would drop twice as steadily or painted gadgets could be simpler to come back by. It has by no means dealt in expertise factors earlier than as a result of expertise factors have been by no means really related. Now, with the current overhaul, Psyonix can simply lower to the chase and use XP as the inducement.
