In a recent pre-update post to Reddit, Rocket League game director Corey Davis revealed that some of the game’s wackier modes might be getting the equivalent of ranked playlists in the future.

Alternative, non-Soccar modes Dropshot, Hoops, Rumble, and Snow Day are generally poo-pooed by Rocket League purists since they majorly alter the game’s existing meta, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t worth playing (and fun as hell). Fortunately, it looks like developer Psyonix is looking for ways to incentivize players into filling up their playlists.

Davis said that, while Soccar will remain the “core experience” and the general focus for the development team in regards to updates, Psyonix is “currently engaged in design discussions about how we could offer an experience equivalent to Competitive play for our existing alternate modes.”

That being said, one of the biggest current demands from players—more alternative modes—does not seem to be on top of Psyonix’s priority list.

“While new game modes are a great way to bring players into Rocket League (both new and returning) and add variety for players of all skill levels,” Davis said, “we see the majority of players migrating back to the original mode after a short period of time.” This is why Psyonix is going to “spend time improving [existing alternate modes] and offering more ways to engage with them rather than putting resources towards yet another addition to the roster.

If Competitive Hoops is coming to Rocket League, however, it won’t be with season seven, which is launching today with the February update, according to a recent announcement.

Rocket League is available for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.

Rocket League might be making its wackier modes more competitive

An "equivalent" of ranked playlists for modes like Hoops and Dropshot might be making its way to Rocket League.
