Thanks to the new patch v1.36 that was deployed today, Rocket League’s fans will no longer have to experience the match cancellation bug in casual matchmaking. Instead of the match cancellation, the missing players that have failed to connect to the server will now be replaced with bots.
Rocket League’s patch v1.36 aims to fix bugs instead of adding any kind of content, and one of the other ones that were considered as bothering is the Frame Per Second issue caused by the Supersonic Trials. Now, they’ve received further optimization so the FPS drops should be gone for good.
Below, you can preview the full changelog of the 1.36 patch:
- Casual Matches will no longer cancel if the server does not have enough players. Bots will once again fill slots for missing players
