A new update for Rocket League on PlayStation 4 and Windows PC is bad news for players who bail on ranked matches. The soccer-meets-driving game's latest patch, version 1.03, will penalize Rocket League players who leave their teammates hanging in ranked mode by temporarily banning them from matchmaking.
Today's patch also fixes a number of bugs and crashes across both platforms. PlayStation 4 owners will get "multiple visual optimizations" and access to Sweet Tooth upon completing a game with all 10 of the other Battle-Cars.
Here are the most important fixes in today's update, via developer Psyonix:
- "Quick Chat" commands can now be used cross-platform between PC and PS4
- Stat tracking for online games is now properly recorded for its correlating Garage items
- AI Bot skill levels now adjust to the average skill level of all players currently in the game
- The first player to abandon a "Ranked' match is now banned from matchmaking for 15 minutes
- (PS4) "Far, Far Away" Trophy can now be unlocked via online play
- (Steam) "Virtuoso" Achievement is now obtainable and includes appropriate description
- Fixed multiple crash scenarios
