New Challenges/Cosmetics/Tiles

In Rocket League right now it feels a little bit stale where all you have to do is play the same game mode every single time, and when you're a higher level player you play ranked and that gets boring after a while especially when the seasons are kind of elongated to the point where they are, you can go play the other game modes in the extra modes. When a new season or when fresh content comes out it reinvigorates that drive to go and want to find more. So the fact that you can earn new titles or there's gonna be new cosmetics in the rocket pass or the challenge system being updated.

For a lot of people that want to introduce that for organizations or collegiate systems or high school teams or middle school teams that have to buy copies of the game for every single thing. The fact that it's not just free and you can download it is going to really increase and build a better foundation around the game that should also ultimately create a influx of viewership for all things.


Tournaments Update

What tournaments could have been at the beginning they're fixing a lot of the features, the ability to spec to determine that you create even if you get knocked out early. The fact that you can earn titles and it keeps your top three results, it incentivizes you to play the game and achieve things and constantly do better. This is a really cool update that's going to be coming with and it's going to really populate that casual fan base and get them involved more into the competitive scene. The fact that you're able to earn items and you can earn titles and just so many different things with a system that is built into the game.
