Rocket League V2.01 patch notes: DMCA-free options, new trading screen and more

Our favourite car soccer title will be tweaking their music selection to be DMCA-free, adding stricter online restrictions and more in order to better the player experience for all casuals, tryhards and pros alike.
Season 4 of Rocket League has us feeling everything from joy for a new Rocket Pass to uncertainty regarding new online regulations.

At the end of the day, though, new content always conveys excitement to the player base and this upcoming campaign will be no different -- at least in the feelings department.

After what was one of the most berated and criticised seasons content-wise for the car soccer video game, Psyonix has come forward to ensure their players that they are listening and that changes take time.

The firsts of which, we’ll be able to see during Season 4 of Rocket League so without further ado, here’s everything you need to know about the version 2.01 patch notes.

Rocket League V2.01 patch notes

Streamer Safe Music

  • Streamer Safe music allows you to play Rocket League’s included music tracks without worrying about DMCA violations while streaming or recording
  • ‘Streamer Safe Music’ can be found under Settings > Audio
  • Once enabled, Rocket League will remove or replace any tracks that may lead to a DMCA violation
  • The Streamer Safe setting works in conjunction with your chosen settings for Player Anthems, playing the soundtrack in-game, and playing the soundtrack during matches

Matchmaking Penalties in Casual Playlists

  • To improve the average match quality in Casual playlists, we are introducing penalties for players who quit Casual games early.
  • Similar to the matchmaking bans for Competitive Playlists, players who leave Casual Playlist matches early may be subject to a short matchmaking ban. Leaving a single match per day won’t result in a penalty, but repeatedly quitting escalates the length of the ban.
  • There are seven ban levels for Casual Playlists:
    • First - 0 Minutes
    • Second - 5 Minutes
    • Third - 10 Minutes
    • Fourth - 20 Minutes
    • Fifth - 40 Minutes
    • Sixth - 1 hour
    • Seventh or more - 2 hours

  • Once you progress beyond the first level, there is a 12-hour cooldown before the ban level de-escalates by one level.
  • You can now “Vote to Concede” a Casual Match once enough time has passed, similar to Competitive play if your team wants to leave or simply proceed to the next match.
  • If a player leaves a Casual match, they will not be backfilled into the same match
  • Casual matches with a score difference of three goals or more will not be backfilled. Bots will replace any players who leave the match.

Undersized Party Rank Restrictions

  • To help preserve balanced competitive play, parties of two playing in 3v3 Standard in Competitive or 3v3 Tournaments must be within 3 Ranks of each other
  • Examples of allowed undersized parties
  • Gold 3 + Platinum 3 (three ranks apart)
  • Diamond 2 + Champion 1 (two ranks apart)
  • Examples of disallowed undersized parties
  • Gold 3 + Diamond 1 (four ranks apart)
  • Silver 2 + Grand Champion 2 (fifteen ranks apart)
  • This change does not apply to Extra Modes Playlists or Casual Playlists
  • This change starts with Season 4

Player to Player Trading Updates

  • Once both players have entered items and accepted terms, a new trade review screen will appear
  • This screen will display all items involved in the trade
  • All item details are visible at all times on this screen (Painted color, Certification, Special Edition type, Esports affiliation)
  • No new items can be added once this screen appears
  • There is a five-second countdown before the Accept Trade button can be used
  • You can cancel out of the Trade Review screen if you want to go back and add/remove items

Game Ban Messaging

  • New messaging will inform you if your account is close to a permanent ban
  • Similar to current ban messaging, and Report Feedback, this message will appear as a pop-up once Rocket League is started

  • Playlist population display has been changed. Based on a playlist’s population, players will see one of the following
    • Amazing
    • Great
