No more surprise mechanics: lootboxes will be removed from the Rocket League

The new update to the Rocket League football racing will completely remove the lootboxes from the game. As reported in the blog

developers, game designers decided to change the approach to obtaining cosmetic items.

What in return

All lootboxes will be replaced by “Drawings”, theydrop out after online matches and show potential items that a player can create for credits. And although the randomness factor will still play in obtaining skins (drawing and credits can “burn out”), the choice of reward will remain with the player. At the same time, the ability to exchange drawings will remain.

Any “Boxes” that are still ininventories will be automatically converted to “Drawings”. The “Keys”, in turn, will be replaced by “Credits” (from 100 to 130), this currency can also be exchanged. For "Decoders", players will receive gift boxes that contain a random item from the Renaissance or Vindicator's Plan set.

Common sense victory

Finally, public pressure begins to givefruit. Recall that in recent years there has been an active struggle of players and even the governments of individual countries against lootboxes. Similar mechanics are equated with gambling, and publishers are obliged to disclose the chances of obtaining items. At this pace, the gaming industry will soon recover from this cancer, in any case, until marketers come up with another “surprise mechanics” and the wheel spins in a new way.
