Rocket League was initially released in 2015, succeeding a PlayStation 3 exclusive title called Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars, and after seven long years, the car soccer phenomenon is still going strong.

Doubling the player base by transitioning to free-to-play after being bought by Epic Games – the same company that owns Fortnite – and releasing a mobile version of the game, Rocket League is a household name, now more than ever.

The mix of racing and soccer is a pioneering concept in the gaming industry, and its esports scene is creeping up the prestige ladder and making a serious case for Tier 1, but does that mean that it’s picking up?

Yet fret not as here’s exactly what you need to know in 2022 if you are a returning player or a first-timer rocketeer!
