Rocket League continues to pull in fans with its clever blend of soccer and radio-controlled-car action. To what degree, however, may surprise you.
More than 1 billion (yes, with a “B”) matches have been played since its July 2015 release, including 31 million matches of the Rumble mode, which launched in September 2016. Those billion matches are split between the game’s 25 million players, with half of them being played competitively. Thirty-three percent were casual games, 11 percent were alternative modes, and the final 6 percent were in private matches.
That means more than 421 centuries of human effort have been poured into the game. Yikes.
