Rocket League Patch Notes V1.78 Update Content, Changes and Improvements

Psyonix has revealed the new update Patch Notes V1.78 featuring some changes and bug fixes in Rocket League, as well as some future content. Effective improvements are mainly made on Bump and Demolition detection, which reduces the inconsistencies of online play. 

Changes and Updates

Check out the new rules to trigger a Demolition:

Forward Hit Check

The line connecting your Center of Mass to the Impact Location is within 40 degrees of your forward direction.

Victim Hit Check

- The line connecting the Impact Location to the Victim’s Center of Mass is within [55-90] degrees of your forward direction.

- This angle scales based on the Forward Hit Check result.

1. For all impacts within 35 degrees of your forward direction, this check uses a 90-degree angle.

2. For impacts between 35 and 40 degrees of your forward direction, this check scales linearly from 90 degrees down to 55. This reduces “sideswipe” demos and other undesirable use cases

Check out the unchanged rules to trigger a Demolition:

Supersonic Check

- You are in the Supersonic State (trails visible/active on wheels)

1. Supersonic State activates at 2200 speed (max speed is 2300)

2. Going below 2100 speed instantly exits the Supersonic State

3. Going below 2200 speed, but above 2100, remains Supersonic for one second before exiting unless you accelerate back above 2200

Speed Check 

- Your speed in your forward direction is at least 2100 at the time of impact

Bumps use the same set of requirements minus the speed/supersonic checks.

Bug Fixes (General)

- Fixed a bug preventing corner Boost Pills not giving players Boost when driven over

- [Nintendo Switch] Fixed an issue preventing some players from joining Local Matches using non-Roman characters in the match name or host player name

- Fixed ‘Decenium’ spelling error in ‘Decennium’ Wheels
