Rocket League is getting a 2XP Weekend starting Oct. 22 – Dot Esports

Players who want to breeze through their Rocket Pass will get a boost to their progression. Rocket League is holding a double XP weekend between Oct. 22 and 26.

The 2XP weekend is an opportunity to grind valuable Rocket Pass levels and rush through the prize track. Players who purchased the pass get extra fuel to burn: the Premium Pass offers 50 percent extra XP right off the bat and up to an additional 35 percent bonus as progression rewards.

The bonus experience is also another incentive for players to pick up their game and dive into the Halloween-themed Haunted Hallows event, which runs until Nov. 2. During the celebrations, completing a series of event challenges unlocks cosmetics from the Ghostbusters collection—including wheels, toppers, and boosts.

Diehard Ghostbusters fans may also consider buying the Ecto-1 from the Item Shop: the battle-car is available for 500 Credits ($4.99) until approximately 3pm CT on Oct. 23. Once it rotates out, the Stay Puft goal explosion, styled after the franchise’s famous marshmallow mascot, will make its way to the virtual shelves.

Players should be mindful of the full list of challenges from the event, weekly objectives, and the season to maximize their experience gain. As usual, premium Pass holders get another edge—this time, in the form of a whole new set of challenges and a hefty sum of XP as rewards.

Rocket League‘s Halloween event also presents another opportunity to shake things up a bit: the Haunted Heatseeker limited-time mode is available until Oct. 26. In the LTM, hitting the ball makes it head towards the opposite goal, and each ball touch increases the flying speed.

Ghostbusters’ Ecto-1 is available in Rocket League’s Item Shop – Dot Esports

Rocket League‘s Halloween event is teeming with ghosts, but help is on the way. Players can get their hands on the Ghostbusters’ Ecto-1 Battle-Car by purchasing it on the Item Shop—but only for two days.

The vehicle rotates out of the store at approximately 3pm CT on Oct. 23, when it’ll give way to the Stay Puft goal explosion, also inspired by the Ghostbusters franchise.

The Ghostbusters’ signature vehicle is on the store for 500 Credits ($4.99) and comes in two variants: red and blue. It uses a Dominus hitbox, according to Rocket League‘s support page, and players who use a Dominus (or similar) should find adopting the Ecto-1 a fairly simple process.

The car was part of the Ghostbusters Ecto-1 Car Pack, which sold separately on several store fronts. The bundle came with the Ecto-1, the Slimer topper, and the Stay Puft goal explosion, which rotates into the Item Shop on Oct. 23.

The Ecto-1 is the first licensed DLC item to return to the Item Shop after Rocket League went free to play. A series of special cosmetics could make their return to the arenas in the future, including the Batmobile, Knight Rider’s K.I.T.T., and a few Hot Wheels vehicles.

When those items return, however, they will only be available in the Item Shop: Psyonix has been progressively removing licensed DLC from other platforms, such as Steam, after Epic Games acquired the studio.

Players who are looking for more Ghostbusters-themed items to go with their newly-acquired Ecto-1 need to complete a handful of challenges during Rocket League‘s Halloween-themed Haunted Hallows event. A wide range of cosmetics from the beloved franchise is available for free, from Ghostbusters wheels to a special boost.

Soniqs parts ways with Satthew – Dot Esports

Soniqs Esports has released Matthew “Satthew” Ackermann from its Rocket League team, the organization announced today.

In the announcement, Soniqs thanked Satthew for his role in helping the org build its inaugural Rocket League team. Satthew also announced his retirement from competitive Rocket League today and his intention to complete his university education next.

“Following today’s announcement of my release from Soniqs, I wanted to let everyone know that this is where I also end my career in competitive play,” Satthew said in a TwitLonger. “I had a career that I’m proud of, but I’ve been longing for something more that I think is found in continuing my university education full time, and if I want to pursue that then I believe now is the time to call it quits.”

Satthew first went pro in Rocket League in 2016, starting his career playing for That’s Pretty Neat. He went on to compete for Freestylers in Disguise, Hollywood Hammers, Bread, Spacestation Gaming, Afterthought, and finally Soniqs. His most notable accomplishment came in 2019 when Satthew helped Afterthought win the RLCS Season Eight – North America: Rocket League Rival Series.

Throughout his four-year career, Satthew made a name for himself as one of the best flick shooters in the world. During his time as a Rocket League pro, Satthew even invented a few different techs of his own, including the Sath-flick 45-degree flick shot. Although he’s leaving Rocket League for now, Satthew did indicate that he may be interested in returning to the scene in the future, perhaps as a coach.

As for Soniqs, the org may bring in Nathan “Shock” Frommelt, who’s been on the team’s bench since September. Alternatively, Soniqs might recruit a new player to fill the open slot on its roster.

Rocket League team struggles to find their footing, League of Legends matches expected to start soon – Point Park Globe

In the video game world, the past few weeks, the Point Park Esports team played in more competitive Rocket League matches. 

In a best-of-three scenario in the past two weeks, the Pioneers lost four straight against Lackawanna College, Robert Morris University, Lebanon Valley College and Messiah College. It’s tough to start off with a 1-4 record, but the team is clearly showing potential. 

In the series against Lackawanna, it came down to the wire. Both teams won two games and went to a fifth game. Lackawanna won off a goal in overtime. In Rocket League, when the game goes to overtime, it’s a golden goal. 

Lackawanna is currently the #1 team in the standings in Group K with six wins and 12 points. If the Pioneers put together more consistent games, they can easily breakthrough. They’ve shown they can compete with the best. 

“It’s hard being a new program, but we’ve performed well,” Head Coach Chris Gaul said.

Point Park is a new program but a few of these schools have been playing for a few seasons. One of those schools is Robert Morris University. 

“RMU’s team was talked about a lot when they first started,” RMU student  Jesse Stechley said. “A lot of people were hyped for it. They have a partnership with Mountain Dew Amp so they’re serious about the future of Esports. They spent a decent amount of money on all of the equipment.” 

It will be interesting to see if Point Park starts any partnerships with RedBull, Monster, Doritos or any similar company. The energy drink and snack foods tend to get the sponsorship deals with professional Esports teams and players. The Pioneers Esports team already has their own unique logo that is shown in the paper. It has the bison with Esports under it. 

If you’re interested in following the team on social media, they’re @ is @ppu_esports on Twitter and Instagram. Other good accounts to follow are @college_esports and @NACEsports which is the official league for college esports. Give Michael Brooks, @esportsmike a follow as well, as he is the founder of NACE. To see the Point Parks standings, go to challengermode.com/s/skillshotcollegiate. 

Not only are the Pioneers playing Rocket League, they’re now playing League of Legends, also just called “League”. League is a very difficult and complex game. The typical sports fan can pick up understanding Rocket League fairly well, but League is much different. League is one of the most competitively played games across the world. It involves lots of skills, communication and teamwork. 

This past Saturday, the team was supposed to play Ecole de Technologie Superieure, a French university in Canada. Unfortunately, the game was postponed due to technical issues. On October 24, Point Park plans to face Baruch College in League. Esports is fascinating as players can play against opponents across the world. There is potential for global leagues. 

The student/club team for Point Park as well is training to play other games. Look forward to them joining tournaments in the spring semester possibly. 

Make sure to watch the Pioneers play Rocket League every Tuesday night on the Twitch livestream. Famous players and teams play on Twitch. Famous YouTubers have the ability to make decent revenue by playing on Twitch. The Pioneers have brought in consistently an audience of about 75 – 100 people each game.

In addition to these free items, the Item Shop will feature additional Ghostbusters items that you can purchase, such as the return of the Ecto-1, as well as previous Haunted Hallows items, like the Reaper Goal explosion.

If you’re a fan of Ghostbusters, these are some pretty sweet rewards. And the fact that they are free, in a game that’s already free-to-play, is just icing on the cake.

In addition to these items, Haunted Hallows will feature two Limited Time Modes. Haunted Heatseeker will run from October 20-26 and will be played in a spooky new Haunted Urban Area. Then, from October 26-November 2, Spike Rush will be played on night map variants.

NACL announces new PUBG league – Esports Insider

The North American Collegiate League (NACL) has launched a new competition for the battle royale game PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG).

It has also been revealed that the not-for-profit organisation will operate alongside the Collegiate Battlegrounds Association to host the NACL PUBG League: Fall 2020 Series.

Players from across the 220 NACL partnered institutions will be eligible to participate in the league, which began its opening week of competition on October 19. 

The competitors will battle it out for the opportunity to win a $1,000 (£762.83) cash scholarship, with the winners of the Fall 2020 Series receiving an invitation to the NACL Collegiate PUBG Grand Championships. The victor of the PUBG Grand Championships will receive an audition for Wolves Esports, the esports branch of Premier League club Wolverhampton Wanderers, under its PUBG division.

The four-week competition will be broadcast on the North American Collegiate League Twitch channel.

As per a release, the NACL also plans on hosting tournaments for Madden 21 and Rocket League throughout the final months of 2020.

While esports for the PC iteration of PUBG appears to have slowed drastically over the past year, organisations and tournament organisers have turned their attention to the mobile version of the game.

In March, ESL joined forces with Tencent to become a part of the PUBG Mobile esports circuit for 2020. Between March and September, the likes of soft drink brand Mountain Dew and wireless company Qualcomm Technologies unveiled partnerships for both domestic and international competitions.

Esports Insider says: Collegiate esports in North America continues to grow at an impressive rate. With the addition of PUBG to its offerings, the NACL is in a solid position to become one of the leading organisers in what has become a competitive market.
