@Joeynator3000 That's actually coming sometime in the summer ,random key drops post match . Other than that,they have the seasonal events where you can earn 5 Decryptors (keys) just by playing.

@OorWullie Wait, what? Seriously?! Awesome! lol
I have two crates right now, one of them rare.
EDIT: Where did you read this anyways?

@Joeynator3000 In the Spring roadmap they claim to be revamping the progression system to make leveling up rewarding. This will somehow include decryptors being rewarded presumably at intervals.

No one knows how this will work, but they claim to have a plan to transition everyone over fairly (as in it takes an Expert and above far longer to level up, so they would rarely get decryptors compared to, say, Pro).

So this will be great, but there are issues since the trade lock can be extremely frustrating once you amass some decent items and a few of your most valuable are unused and untradeable... I have several items my friends really want and I would be happy to give away, but those just have to sit in my inventory.

Alright, that makes sense.
EDIT: I found it now...yeah this what I was hoping for honestly. Maybe it can happen via Fan Rewards as well, now that I know how those work. (you get multiple items)

I haven't opened any of my crates. I don't really care about the customization aspect. I'm just driving around with my Metroid car.

But...I needz my fancy explosions. lol
I forget what my level is right now, doubt I'm that far since I don't play as often.

Honestly, I think it really does mean you can earn them after a match. They didn't specify if it was level-up only or something...That's my guess.

@Joeynator3000 Elsewhere they have stated that the plan is to tie them to progression system to make leveling up meaningful.

@OorWullie Well, the hope is they are true to their word and it will be a fair transition, otherwise it would be to obvious to make a Smurf account to get more decryptors.

Maybe, we'll see what happens, hopefully they'll make them a Fan Rewards thing as well.

ACK

@Joeynator3000 I don't think that is in their interest at all. The goal is to incentivize people to play, not view-bot their Twitch channel. They already give out unique items which supplement the secondary market, rather than undermine it.

EDIT: As in if you don't even have to play to get plentiful decryptors the bottom will fall out of the marketplace. Psyonix knows they have to tread carefully here... Notice that they have been teasing this addition for months yet still no concrete plans for release.

@Joeynator3000 If you're looking to get a new exploision the chance of you getting one before you spend wayyy more money then planned is slim. The easiest path is just to try to meet requirements of traders.

Well that's never gonna happen then. TwT

when it comes to goal explosions, I only got 2, happy holidays and butterflies (not my vids)

I tend to use HH for the red team and BF for blue, I REALLY want Hellfire and the reaper.

I really want that goal explosion from the Triumph crate ,looks really good. I forget the name of it but not the Toon one.

If anyone wants Nipper or Yuzo wheels I'm willing to swap. I've got a few nice Rocket Boosts too.

Hooray! I've just managed to polish off the Silver reward level! (..not sure I'll be troubling the Gold ranks any time soon - so that was my main target!)

Untitled

I managed to secure it by somehow beating, in a 1v1, the most skilled player that I've ever encountered in the game! ..dribbles, air shots, stunts, acrobatics - they had every trick in the book!

I got the impression that they weren't going 'all out' (ie. often preferring to dribble the ball up a wall to set up a spectacular air manoeuvre than go directly for goal) even so, I was on the back-foot throughout - barely clinging on - and somehow managed to grind out what felt like the most unlikely of victories!

Up until recently, I'd only really played in the 'Casual' playlists, so this'll be my first 'seasonal reward' item - fingers crossed it'll be something nice! (..think I can guess the colour, at least! )

I have to say, Ranked/Competitive isn't anywhere near as scary as I had feared it'd be! ..the Rank/Division system seems to work pretty well, as does the matchmaking (for the most part) - and it's nice to have a sprinkling of pressure added to the equation - and prizes to play for and work towards ..competitive 1v1's can be pretty intense - and forming an effective 2v2 and 3v3 team with a friend or two feels great - well worth a try if you haven't already!

...I wonder what the end of season reward will be??

@NaviAndMii Nice one ,well played. I think the seasonal rewards are usually a set of wheels. I got a bronze set last time.

I'm not sure how it works ,are you rewarded for your highest rank reached during the season or your rank when it comes to a close? Then is it an average of your rank across all modes ,1v1,2v2 etc. I was silver on both 3v3 modes and bronze on 2v2 and 1v1. I don't think I ever reached silver on those last time.

@OorWullie The rewards vary from season to season... Wheels most recently, banners before that, and so on. Each season the items are unique but their have been two sets of wheels, I believe.

The rewards you earn are tied to reward level, not rank anymore (was the case in the past but it was changed a few seasons ago unfortunately). This means you must get ten wins at each successive level regardless of rank. Your rank is effectively the ceiling on the reward level you can obtain, but you must win 10 matches at bronze, then silver, then gold, and so on to earn the rewards up to that level. Finally, all wins are a cumulative across playlists... So you can obtain those wins with any combination ranked matches you prefer.

I lost my competitive stuff, I was a gold 1 in 1 v 1 and a silver 3 in 3 v 3, but I took a break from RL and lost my stats...and I'm too confused how it works, and if it's about getting a status then playing another 10 matches or so to keep whatever, then would do that some other time.

@Undead_terror Yeah, It's annoying, like most things with this game... Anyway, what happens is after a month-long hiatus from ranked competition, you are required to play a few placement matches again for whatever lame reason. In my experience it's usually just one or two, but quite frustrating to get no credit for wins during that time.

EDIT: Your reward level is not affected. Once the additional placement matches are done your wins will count towards your previous total.

Thanks very much! From what I've read, the Rewards system (in its current form) works like @ACK said at the top of the page - Rewards are earned by filling the 'Reward Meter' (the bar that the arrow is pointing at in the screenshot below) as high as you can before the end of the 'Season' (usually 3-4 months, this 'Season' started 7th Feb)

Untitled

The rewards bar initially reads 'Unranked' (as below) - if you win 10 ranked matches, you'll bring up the 'Bronze' rewards bar - then, by winning another 10 matches at a minimum of Bronze rank, you earn the 'Bronze' reward - winning a further 10 matches at a minimum of Silver rank will earn you the 'Silver' reward (and so on)

Untitled

...at the end of the Season (likely sometime in May/June) you'll receive a reward based upon the status of that bar - eg. with my one (top picture), having managed to win 10 matches at Silver rank, I fully filled my 'Silver Reward Meter' to earn the 'Silver Reward' at the end of the season (which is now locked in - even if I get demoted to Bronze in all modes before the Season ends, I'll still earn the Silver reward courtesy of those 10 wins) - then, at the start of next Season (Season 8) the bar gets 'reset' and you start over and try to earn that seasons reward (and so on!)

I quite like it as a system really - I suppose that, under the old system (where it was based on your end of season ranks alone) players might have been disinsentivised from playing after a certain point for fear of getting demoted and losing their reward...but, with this new system, I can keep playing (eg. perhaps try to get Gold) safe in the knowledge that I've got the Silver reward locked in, no matter what

So far, Rewards have included Wheels, Trails, Banners and Toppers - but never Antennas or Goal Explosions - so I'm wondering whether it might be one of those this time around? ..probably won't be too long before we find out!
