Following the complaints from Rocket League veterans, a Psyonix developer responded via Reddit, explaining that the UI changes were made to make the game more intuitive and easy to understand for new players.
Corey Davis, co-studio head on Rocket League, explained that: “Our objective for a Free to Play release was to address areas of the game that could be clearer or more intuitive for new players. For the seasoned veterans that populate this subreddit, that can sometimes look like changing things that weren’t broken (from your point of view).”
Rocket League’s UI was changed in a recent update.
He summarized the changes in three main points: “The old Play Menu Tabs weren’t great at surfacing other modes… Playlist selection being separate from ‘Start Matchmaking’ was counterintuitive for many users… Important features like Free Play Training were not exposed as part of the core “Play” loop of the game.”

Format & rules
This is a double-elimination 4v4 competition using a Variant format, meaning that the maps, modes, and rules are mostly from the official competitive ruleset for when Ghosts was the main CoD game being played.
In the 2014 season, the three main modes were Domination, Search and Destroy, and Blitz, each with their own set of maps. Here are the map-mode sets that are being used in this event:
Grand Finals: Strikezone Dom, Warhawk SnD, Freight Blitz, Octane Dom, Sovereign SnD
Grand Finals Reset: Freight Dom, Octane Snd, Warhawk Blitz, Sovereign Dom, Freight SnD
Of course, the entire driving force behind this throwback tournament series is charity, as Hitch and TST are raising money for Movember – one of the leading global organizations committed to changing the face of men’s health.
