In addition to improving tournaments and the challenge system, Psyonix has announced new ranks, a new way to make the seasons work, and other changes. The closer we get to the summer update, the more we learn about what will come along with it.

Finally, a position above Grand Champion.
For the vast majority of players, this change may appear to be insignificant. This is, on the other hand, welcome news for the population of Grand Champions at this level. At the moment, there is a significant difference in skill between a player at the top of the ranks and one who has recently been promoted.
A rank is intended to quickly represent your level of skill. When one of them encompasses an excessive amount of the population, it loses credibility. Especially when this is the most difficult and prestigious position you have ever held.
In order to address this issue, Rocket League will introduce an additional rank above Grand Champion, and the latter will be divided into three divisions. This rank is referred to as Supersonic Legend. It's most likely a nod to Rocket League's predecessor, Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars. Your MMR (which is used to calculate your rank) will be visible from Grand Champion 1, just as it is now. Then, unlike currently, players will need to reach level 10 in order to gain access to the ranked mode.

Improved season planning
For many years, the seasons of the classified mode and competition did not coincide with the seasons of the Rocket Pass. The ranked seasons will be aligned with the Rocket Pass in order to alleviate the general confusion surrounding the beginning and end dates of these two events. In fact, it will be more effectively integrated within a season. This will be more in line with other games, such as Fall Guys, which have seasons based on how many passes they have.
In order to accomplish this, the season numbering will be reset. As a result, Season 1 will be the next season, and it will be released alongside the major update. Furthermore, competitive tournaments (which will be held as a result of the system's improvement) will be held at times that coincide with these dates.

There is still no specific date.
Despite the fact that summer is already drawing to a close, there is no set date for this update. For the time being, all we know is that it will take place around the end of September. At the very least, we now have a slightly more realistic idea of when it will be released.
In addition to all of the changes mentioned above, as well as those mentioned in the previous article, a few additional tricks will be changed. First, there will be a few more brief messages. The most well-known of these is the infamous Faking, which has been in high demand for years! Some, such as Passing!, are more serious and will allow for better communication between players.
The Solo Standard will then cease to exist as a result. For those who are unaware, it is currently possible to play in both Standard and Solo Standard modes. Both offer a 3-on-3 format, but only the latter allows you to play in a group. Despite the fact that it is a similar system to League of Legends and its Solo Tail, it was not very popular, which resulted in some difficulties in terms of ranking and the like. In a nutshell, it's a welcome change that demonstrates that Psyonix Studios has been listening to its fans for all these years.
Finally, a significant change will be implemented for Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 players: subscriptions to PlayStation Plus and Nintendo Switch Online will no longer be required in order to play online. As a result, it will be possible to enjoy the full Rocket League experience for free. Obviously, because Rocket League is a game that is played primarily online, removing these restrictions will only benefit players.
