Rocket League


 

Psyonix Studios has released a new update for Rocket League that adds a punishment for players who quit ranked matches early.

Following the update, the first player to quit a ranked match will be handed a 15-minute ban from ranked matchmaking. The update also makes it so quick chat works across platforms, adjusts the average skill level of bots based on the players in the match, and fixes a number of crashes.

The full patch notes are below:
