Yep. They incorporated a mutator playlist for unranked gameplay. Basically, it's just a few mutator preset games. A few of the mashups I played were:

1. Beach Ball (huge ball, ball bounciness is high)
2. Cubic (cube ball)
3. Moon Ball (I can't remember if the ball is huge or not, super bounce, low gravity)
4. Pinball (ball is smaller, max ball speed is ridiculous)
5. Time Warp (game goes slow mo when someone is about to hit or miss the ball)

And there's a lot of specific changes you can make on your own private games, but I haven't played around a lot with that.

Also, just as another addition, the devs have added several more antennas, including a Fallout themed Vault Boy bobblehead antenna.

All in all, the mutators are a deserving break from the normal gameplay. Fun wise, I think the novelty goes away quickly.

Played at least 1 game of each last night. Thoughts.

1. Beach Ball (huge ball, ball bounciness is high)
-This one was fun. Super hard to score, but that didn't frustrate anyone. We went into overtime with 0-0.
2. Cubic (cube ball)
-Thought I would hate this one but I really liked it. Everyone kept flying by the cube because it would stop so suddenly.
3. Moon Ball (I can't remember if the ball is huge or not, super bounce, low gravity)
-Got my first aerial hit finally. This one was fun for a bit, but it was frustrating when you were in the air and had to gradually fall back down.
4. Pinball (ball is smaller, max ball speed is ridiculous)
-Super hard to defend, but again, fun.
5. Time Warp (game goes slow mo when someone is about to hit or miss the ball)
-like everyone on the internet, least favorite. Was fun to slow down time when you got to the ball, but was annoying when you weren't close to it.

Rocket League is on sale! This is the lowest it's ever been!

http://www.greenmangaming.com/s/us/en/pc/games/racing/rocket-league/

Use Promo Code "SAVE20-NOVEMB-GAMING" to get it for $12.80. I'm not sure if people here DON'T own it, but this is definitely the time to snag it. I doubt it'd go 50% off in the winter steam sale, so this might be the best deal for a while.

Additionally, the promo code also works for the DLC.

The upcoming Rocket League DLC "Chaos Run" will add a post-apocalyptic twist to the game with "thematically inspired" paint, wheels, rocket trailers, toppers, and antennas, plus a pair of brand-new cars, one of which sports a rather familiar haircut.
The release of Chaos Run will also see the launch of a free new arena called Wasteland, that's based on a similar map in Psyonix's 2008 game Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars. As the first "non-standard" stadium added to the game, it will be wider than other fields and have different Boost placements. But the biggest difference is that the ground around the entire perimeter will be sloped, which developer Psyonix said will result in a much different "feel" in matches.
Also on the way is new music from Kevin Riepl, whose previous videogame credits include Gears of War, Crackdown 2, Aliens: Colonial Marines, and Hawken. The new tunes will be free as well, as will a number of new Garage items that have yet to be announced.
Rocket League—Chaos Run is slated to come out in early December, and will set you back $4. Details are up on Steam.

Played some ranked games last night with Itscsalvo and crckrjack. I think we won 7 or so in a row. I didn't score a single goal, but I was able to demolish the goalie so salvo could score in overtime for the win

This is on Xbox One if that hasn't been mentioned. Still no way to create parties across the platforms..that I know of.

Corey and I played the new maps yesterday. They are no longer modeled after soccer fields and they throw in fun obstacles and elements. I like the circle field a lot, it just changes the game entirely. Are the different game modes (zero gravity, beach ball, etc) still there? I didn't see them.

Basketball update is coming later this month.

Rusty was telling me how hilarious it is to play with you guys. I wish we could party up some how.

Hoops is pretty fun. I can actually get aerial hits and goals. Map is half the size of the soccer field so it seems like you are running into people all the time.

Who uses ball cam? I do not and I think that's something that is preventing me from skilling up.

Ball cam on is like the only way to play. I turn it off when I purposely want to not pay attention to the ball (like when destroying a goalie or grabbing a full boost).
