Psyonix takes the critique of their community seriously
This challenge is free. Tying it to performance and making it that far in tournaments turns off many players. Quite a few threads have popped up online about it; this isn’t the only challenge either. The Stage 3 challenge is “Get 200 Assists in Online Matches”. 200 assists? Someone points out that it took them half a season to get 40 [assists], much less 200.
What is Psyonix doing? They immediately responded to Rocket League Items the changes and made two announcements: The first challenge was adjusted to be “Play in 4 Psyonix Scheduled Tournaments.” Now you have to compete and do your best to get credit. You don’t have to climb to the Quarter Finals.
The second challenge was also changed: “Get 50 Assists in Online Matches,” which is far more reasonable. Sure, 50 assists are probably still going to be challenging for some players. It’s not going to feel maddening and impossible like the 200 did. The best part? The changes are live right now! Just restart your game and make sure it’s been updated.
We’re glad to see that Psyonix takes the critique of RL Items their community seriously and are quick to adjust when the need is there. This is how you build a strong community of people that love and support your game. Kudos, Psyonix.
