What are Experience Points? How do they affect my Level?
As you play the game, you acquire Experience Points (XP). XP helps you progress to the next Player Level which allows you to earn a Random (Online Drop) Item as a Reward. XP only represents how much time you have played and how many points you've managed to add up over time. This, of course, doesn’t necessarily reflect player skill.
How can I obtain XP?
XP is only obtained by completing Online Playlist Matches in either the Casual or Competitive Playlist. When playing, you can earn Points by scoring goals, making saves and more.
Additionally, base XP depends on multiple factors, such as match completion, the overall time of the match, whether you've won or lost the match, etc. The amount of XP you earn can also be increased by special Bonus XP multipliers or by having Rocket Pass activated. These give you an extra percentage of your base XP or multiply the amount of XP you get.
Why didn't I obtain XP after a match?
There is a minimum Point threshold that must be reached in order to get XP. This threshold is in place to encourage players to stay active during a match.
What are Titles?
Depending on the level you have reached, different titles will be displayed. Titles do not reflect skill or ability, nor do they affect the Tier Ranking on the Competitive playlists.
The Titles available from leveling up are the following:
- Veteran at Level 20
- Expert at Level 40
- Master at Level 60
- Legend at Level 80
- Rocketeer at Level 100
- Elite Challenger at Level 200
- And more...!
I don't want others to see my Title, can I hide it?
Certainly! Since your Title does not necessarily reflect skill, everyone has the option not to display their level by going to the Garage sub-menu, select the tag icon and then choose the "None" option.
Can I reset my Level/Title/Experience Points?
Given that this information is not stored locally, but on our servers, there is currently no way to reset nor manually modify this information.
When playing Online, will I get paired with other people that have my same Level and Title?
You may, but this is not a criteria used by the Matchmaking system. Players' Levels do not always go hand-in-hand with their skills, which is why the system uses different criteria when pairing you with and against other players.
