In today’s piece, AlexKF looks at the recent rank distribution data for Rocket League players an assesses the trends from the most recent seasons.
The latest Rocket League rank distributions for Season 11 (May to August 2019) have been published over on Reddit. We thought it would be helpful to break them down and design them as charts and graphs to help understand what’s going on a little better.
You can easily see where you’re at by comparing yourself to others. You need to remember, though, that comparing yourself to others might not be the best metric to determine how good you are.
For example, hours played will have a huge impact on what rank you could be. Being at Champ 1 in 1v1 Solo Duel with 500 hours is going to be way more impressive than being Grand Champ in 2v2 Doubles with 1000 hours. And that’s just one metric.
You can look at other things such as age, mental ability or even fitness. All of these will impact where you’re at on these charts. Just because your friend is ranked higher than you having played fewer hours is not the whole picture.
Here’s the data:

There is a general trend with the enjoyment of the game and progression of the game – that’s what makes Rocket League such a unique game.
Remember how it was on day one? There might have been little hope after you realize how hard it is to even hit the ball. But when you managed to hit that first sucky aerial, that passing play, the wall shot or even finally getting that clutch overtime double touch to win you the game.
Those were the moments but that progression is still part of the game. Not a single player is ‘the perfect rocket league player’, not yet.
One way of improving is to book one of our coaches for some training sessions. There are few ways of making the next step in Rocket League that will help you level up more effectively than working one-on-one with a coach. They’ll be able to assess your game individually, help isolate weaknesses and work with you on ironing them out.
Ultimately it’s about your enjoyment and progression of this game. But if you’re not sure if it’s the right time then here are 3 tells that it might be a good time.
Oh and not to forget that Rumble, Dropshot, Hoops and Snow Day are all legitimate playlists to grind through as well. Who cares if they’re not mainstream, they also have all their unique mechanics and strategies to win.
Let’s see how Season 12 goes! Share your progress on our Discord community and maybe even team up with others to make it a whole lot more fun.
