What is Friends List?
With the Friends Update, a Friends List has been added in Rocket League. Players can now add friends from other platforms using a unique tag called RocketID. Once added, you can now see each other’s online status, invite each other to active games and form a party. You can access the Friends List from the main menu of Rocket League.

What is a RocketID?
RocketID is a combination of your display name and a random 4-digit code. The 4-digit code in your RocketID cannot be chosen.
If your name doesn’t pass our language filter or has restricted characters, you’ll be assigned a temporary, auto-generated name like Octane#1234.
Can I block players on my in-game Friends List?
Yes, you can now block players through the in-game Friends List. Once you block a player, you will no longer receive notifications from them, and your online presence will not be visible to them. Remember that you may still be friends with this player through your platform’s Friend’s List.
Blocked players will appear in the new Blocked Players list within the Friends List menu. You can unblock players by selecting them from your Blocked Players list, and choosing Unblock Player.
Can I change my RocketID?
Yes, you can change your name by selecting Change My RocketID at the bottom of the Friends tab. If your name doesn’t pass our language filter or has restricted characters, you’ll be assigned a temporary, auto-generated name like Octane#1234.
You may only rename your RocketID once per minute.
Are there any requirements or restrictions for a Rocket ID?

- Must be between 3-16 characters long
