Rocket League Players Fuming With Competitive Season 4 Rewards
After grinding through the competitive ranks in Rocket League, players expect to be left rewarded with some high-tier loot that reflects the seasonal efforts. However, players have been let down split upon split, with a range of wheels and trials being heavily criticised - including the latest competitive Season 4 rewards which have been branded as the worst ever.
What Are The Competitive Season 4 Rewards In Rocket League?
As Rocket League Season 4 comes to a conclusion, players have been getting in their final push towards the next rank, in hope that they can secure 10 wins in their respective divisions to earn the maximum rewards for their placements, although their efforts are seemingly for diddly squat.
Once again, Rocket League has released the competitive rewards early as an indication of what's to come in the upcoming weeks, and players haven't been shy of letting the developers know that they are the worst yet.
The Rocket League Season 4 competitive rewards are a simple Grog-like wheel, topped with spikes emitting from the tyre, and radiated with the logo and colour of the received rank. With an unfavourable design and clear lack of experimental colouring, the YouTube video has been slapped with over 8,000 thumbs down (as of writing), compared to just 350 likes.
What Are Rocket League Fans Saying About The Competitive Season 4 Rewards?
One fan took to the comments section to express his hatred for the rewards. They said, "These season rewards keep getting worse and worse. Classic Epic Games, glad I've never spent a penny on Rocket League since they took over."
Another added, "Those are not rewards, that's punishment."
Even a range of content creators took to social media to voice their displeasure. Pulse Clan freestyler "Henkovic" and former professional turned map-making-magician Treyven "Lethamyr" Robitaille conversed on Twitter to argue that Psyonix should consider changing the rewards, with nobody wanting to sport the unappealing wheels.
Over the years, Psyonix and Epic have rolled out a range of wheels as the seasonal rewards, including the innovative and increasingly reactive rewards from Season 3 (legacy) back in 2016. With a clear distinct improvement between Prospect rank and the elite Champion neon design, these wheels set a benchmark in which the new Season 4 designs fall well below.
Should players want to put themselves through the stress of reaching a higher rank for those bog-standard wheels, the Rocket League Season 4 competitive rewards will drop on November 17, as the cosmic chaos of Season 5 unravels.
