Because of this, the connectivity issues were in more demand than ever to be fixed in almost every nook and cranny of the earth.
Considering the esports potential making sure every rocketeer was only dependant on their motor skills and reflexes and not on the region they were playing from has been a critical concern of the developers.
This has led Psyonix to fix log-in bugs, stabilize connections and expand player options in an attempt to make all regions equal. This movement has come to a head today.
As of 8th September 2021, Rocket League has opened a new server region. The servers are hosted in Mumbai whilst the India tournament will still use Asian servers.
This change was made in Rocket League version 2.03 as the update is already live on all platforms.
Now, Rocket League has 11 server regions and they go as follows:
- Asia-SE Mainland
- Asia-SE Maritime
- South Africa
- South America
Connectivity issues have always been a talking point across every Rocket League forum and/or stream -- so much so that the frustration from the server’s performance ticked Emiliano "Sizz" Benny to the point of lashing out against developers, a tantrum that earned him a suspension during the Rocket League Championship Series.
Now that India has a server of their own, we can expect further expansion plans to be revealed soon as Psyonix lays the groundwork for the biggest Rocket League Championship Series and make the World Championship really worldwide.
