Uninstalled it.

Finding myself playing it for the sake of playing it, when I wasn't enjoying it in the slightest. Toxic community (had a guy play against me because I refused to forfeit at 2-0 down), felt I'd hit a ceiling and was getting worse every game. (missing aerials and shots I was making a year ago easily)

 

 

This is where I am now. The worst thing about fantastic multiplayer games is that eventually the plebs start to play :P 

I realised that this is the first time since it was free on PS Plus that I haven't played for more than a couple of days, when was that, a couple of years ago? I ended up buying a copy on Steam and a collector's edition, I love it so much, but it's insane that I've got so much playtime out of a game that they gave away for free.

Next big update is 5th July, for the 2nd Anniversary of the game. There's a new standard arena, a couple of new cars in crates (so technically free), new 'trails' (not boosts), 'goal explosions', Rocket League radio, and the end of season 4.

The new cars look terrific, and if they were DLC I would probably buy at least one.

Thought I'd come back to this after a few weeks. How are their servers still this shit?

They've sold more copies than they could have ever dreamed of, plus all of the DLC, and there are still issues with 'not being logged in to the Rocket League servers". I guess I'll play something else!

They have sold more copies than they could have dreamed of, but that still amounts to little to no money. Why? Rocket League has sold 10.5 million copies ($170 million revenue), but it has 29 million players (thanks to PS+) and that kind of server upkeep isn't cheap even using the cheapest servers which they are. Now DLC which is sold for 60% of the games base cost and of which 70% of the player base has bought some DLC is helping, but it's likely not helping enough because if it was the servers would be getting better which they aren't. Blizzard (World of Warcraft) in 2008 spent $50 million in a single year on server upkeep costs for 24 million players, Rocket League has 29 million and if the costs are similar then the money Rocket League made isn't enough to support Rocket League long term. So if you love Rocket League and have fun in Rocket League it may be worth putting up with the issues as they are literally doing the best they can.
