With the Rocket League 1.66 Update, Psyonix is putting an end to Competitive Season 11 and handing out titles and items for your highest rank during this season. To earn the Season 11 rewards, you need to successfully complete the respective Season Rewards Levels, otherwise you’re out of luck. The Season 11 rewards are non-tradeable boosts that come in various tiers, including Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, Diamond, and Champion.

Competitive Season 12 starts now, and comes with a soft reset to wipe the slate clean. You will have to go through placement matches to determine your new rank. If you manage to secure victory in half of the placement matches, your rank will be close to your previous season ranking.

New in-game stats give you something else to look out for when you score those impressive goals. High-Five, Low-Five and Swish Goals register according to specific conditions, with Swish Goals being only available when you play the Hoops game mode–you achieve it only when your goal doesn’t touch the rim.

There are a few bug fixes as well, but you can read the full list of patch notes below.
