Why did we get the Mothership Pro wheels? I thought that they were only for people who bought tickets to the LANdon finals.
Not that I'm complaining, any free wheels are a bonus, but I would be pretty annoyed if I had paid for the LANdon finals expecting them to be limited to the people who went.

After a couple of hours play:

1. 4v3, 3v2 not appeared
2. flashing selecting/deselecting Play menu bug gone
3. lag on first 10-20 seconds on starting a game gone
4. Server issues all fixed*

I could be wrong, but something seems better about image quality, the colours are much richer and vibrant and effects such as boost trails, etc seem to have much more clarity and presence. Top tip for anyone: turn on colour blind mode, it takes away some hideous car colour combinations, makes the colours more saturated and lovely and improves image quality no-end, kind of like adding HDR :)

I approve.

* only joking on this one ;-)

So ranked ‘Extra’ modes is great! In fact, it’s awesome! But at the cost of casual ‘Extra’ modes? Why can we not have both? The only way to play Rumble, Dropshpt, Hoops or Snowday is ranked? That is unacceptable Psyonix!! Why take away casual play options for the ‘Extra’ modes? I realize this is the first day of the new update but I am sure there will be many other players asking the same question.

That's because all sport playlists were quite unpopulated just before the new patch. Splitting an unpopulated playlist up even more will worsen the matchmaking experience for the two new playlists, with contrast to the old one. Hence, they only made ranked playlists. There's the option to hide all competitive elements of sports playlists. You can make it unranked, except for the fact that some teammates might care about what happens ingame.
When nothing works - Get silly, but be respectful. Be happy you got matched against me, giving you room to improve!

You know what else ruins the matchmaking experience?
The fact that they didn't start everyone out at 100 MMR on the new queues, like they should have.

I don't know how they calculated the MMR for the new lists, but it appears to be using a sizable fraction of my Unranked MMR as a starting point.
That's fine for Snow Day because I can compete in that queue with my full Unranked MMR.
For Hoops, I can't even be remotely competitive.

I was looking forward to playing Hoops with an MMR that would more truly reflect my skills.
If I want to get there, I'm going to have to keep losing match after match, for days, which doesn't sound like much fun.

I realize I'm probably in the minority here but I'll throw my two cents in anyway. My friends and I never really got into the main soccer mode of the game but we fell in love with the snowday game mode. I would say we're above average in skill for the casual players but when the patch went live yesterday and the mode became ranked only we started getting our butts beat badly, to the point where it wasn't fun anymore. I'm hoping this is only temporary until we play the first 10 matches to determine our ranking because while we wouldn't mind some more competitive games no one wants to lose by a large margin every time they play.

My worry is that with snowday now being ranked a lot of the players that aren't as good (like us or worse) will leave and we'll be left with playing the super good players from now on. I'm sure we'll get better with the increase competition but it would be nice to have more casual games online with other players instead of resorting to playing bots.

I'm not sure if it uses unranked MMR to determine a starting positions at the beginnings of placements for these new playlists. But I'd also say it feels like this starting MMR is higher than a clean start in soccar for a new account. Maybe they did this to counter needing a lot of inflation over time, while these playlists are way less densely populated than soccar playlists. It effectively means people should be at their right MMR sooner, at the cost of seeing more progression.

I'm seeing the first half of that, but not the second.

My Hoops MMR is still at about 50% of my Unranked MMR, on a 1-5 start.
My Snow Day MMR is about 75% of my Unranked MMR, on a 4-2 start.
Rumble is at 55%, on a 1-2 start.
Dropshot is at 60%, on a 1-1 start.

There was no "soft reset" at all, on the 2v2 ladder.
It continued on from where I was last season, just like every other "soft reset" they've done.
Instead of allowing me to play my way up against other Plat players, the game suddenly decided we'd done too well, so it threw us up against a couple Diamond teams, who promptly beat us back down about 60 points.

I dono NoOne, I finished my 10 matches in hoops and I was put in gold 3.... my first 2 games I was playing with silver ranked players. So I'm pretty sure we all started at zero and like the normal season resets we have had the mmr on those first couple games skyrockets. I wasn't running alpha or tracking online so can't say for sure. But I will say my placements were not easy. One round or 2 were 7 nothing but when i got paired with silver or gold it was pretty rough. After not playing hoops for probably 6 months it reminded me just how dam small that arean is but it was still a blast. All sorts of crazy goals. I'll be in hoops for a while

That is absolutely not the case here.

I went 0-1 to start, on Hoops, and still got a 547 MMR.
The only way for that to happen is if I started with an MMR higher than that, which is not "everyone starting at zero".
Psyonix may be starting everyone off at a flat 600, rather than some fraction of their Unranked MMR, but they are not using the 100 they've used historically.

Starting people off that high up is not a good decision, if you want to keep players interested in playing those modes.
It's just another case of Psyonix killing an idea, with poor decisions.

Nobody wants to come into a new ladder, and have to LOSE their way down to where they belong.
A good portion of those people are going to say, "piss on this", and go back to whatever mode they are most comfortable with.
That's already happened with a couple people on my friends list, which doesn't bode well for the experiment of alternate Ranked modes.

EDIT: I just played my 7th match of Snow Day, and got 43 points for the win.
That's bumped me to approximately 80% of my Unranked MMR.

I was looking forward to snow day and the other modes getting competitive play. I did not expect that casual play would be eliminated in the process. There are a few of us who prefer these modes and we are maybie not all of us rocketeers or accomplished airialists. Suddenly 2/3 of the players are since they are hoping for an easy win in a less popular mode. The result is that many of the regular players of these modes (myself and all of my friends included) are feeling shut out. Like a bunch of pros have taken over and we just cant play anymore. It is suddenly no longer fun. Please bring back casual play for these modes. Thanks, hope everyone is well

RL servers ping is so bad on XB1...ping jumps from 60/80 to over 100-200/300 or even 900 pings making game unplayable...I've notice this happens when you go to hit ball on offense or to defend...This happens on USA East and West servers...please fix..It's not me!! This has been happening since last few updates over last month!!!
