Rocket League is a vehicular soccer video game developed and published by Psyonix. The game was first released for Microsoft Windows and PlayStation 4 in July 2015, with ports for Xbox One, macOS, Linux, and Nintendo Switch being released later on. Described as "soccer, but with rocket-powered cars", Rocket League has up to four players assigned to each of the two teams, using rocket-powered vehicles to hit a ball into their opponent's goal and score points over the course of a match. The game includes single-player and multiplayer modes that can be played both locally and online, including cross-platform play between all versions. Later updates for the game enabled the ability to modify core rules and added new game modes, including ones based on ice hockey and basketball. This is a sequel to Psyonix's Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars for the PS3. Rocket League was praised for its gameplay improvements over Battle-Cars, as well as its graphics and overall presentation. The game earned a number of industry awards and saw over 10 million sales and 40 million players by the beginning of 2018. Rocket League has also been adopted as an esport, with professional players participating through ESL and Major League Gaming, along with Psyonix hosting their own competitions through the Rocket League Championship Series (RLCS). On the other hand, it surprisingly does have a toxic fandom.

Why Their Toxicity Is Rocket-Powered

  1. There have been some trolls who would appear online and do some bad things to their own team such as putting the ball in the team's own goal. Here is a good example.
  2. As expected, you can still identify players that would say stuff such as “You’re so bad kid, uninstall”, "hacker", “Why are you even playing?”, “Kill yourself”, etc. Some would even just say a bunch of random junk as well (as in literally anything you could think off).
  3. Some players in the online community are so sarcastic that they are not aware of what they are saying or what effect it might have on the people they are playing with.
  4. Typical self-centered jackasses who think that "if they had good teammates, they should win". In other words, they blame their teammates.
  5. Thanks to how the game is rated E for everyone, immature children can still come to this online community.
  6. Sore losers can't just accept defeat. What do they do exactly? They get really mad thus ignoring good sportsmanship and just rage quit.
  7. They think that a certain Rocket League rank (mainly Diamond) has the most toxic players when some toxic players can have different ranks. Basically, they pin the blame on other people.
  8. They can try to refuse to play with certain people just because of "bad players".
  9. They make up stupid petitions related to Rocket League such as add the Tesla Cybertruck, Thanos Car, stop crates being removed from Rocket League, add "Oof" to the quick chat, bring Shrek Items to Rocket League, and add raccoons to Rocket League.
    • Speaking of the Tesla Cybertruck, they can never shut up about it. The same might be said about the crates.
  10. Because of certain updates, some of them just want Rocket League to be on their own image.
  11. One word. Clickbait.
  12. A select amount of players would try to hack the game by hacking accounts.
    • If hacking isn't bad enough, they would even try to use scams as well. That's no way to play Rocket League you fools!
  13. They would only watch the RLCS just for the fan rewards. No wonder you would get random claims such as "where are my drops".
  14. Some of them are even addicted to the game. This is why taking breaks exist.
  15. They are so toxic that they even make Rocket League players uninstall the game all thanks to their toxicity.
