Dropshot is a brand new take on Rocket League gameplay as we introduce dynamic breakable floors and an electrified ball, all within the confines of a new hexagonal Arena, 'Core 707'. Instead of pushing the ball into your opponent’s goal, your objective is to destroy panels on the opposing team’s floor, and score goals through those gaps.
Our new game mode is all about Damage! Along with our usual stats like Goals, Assists, and Saves, Dropshot introduces Damage as a statistic -- the more damage you do, the more floor panels break, and the easier it is to score a goal! Each panel can be hit by a ball twice -- the first hit activates the panel, while the second breaks the panel, creating a new scoring opportunity.
The new ball has three different phases, each more powerful than the last, that determine how much damage is done when the ball smashes into the floor panels. The second and third phases are activated by multiple Battle-Car hits, so the longer the ball stays off the ground, the more powerful it becomes. While the first phase of the new ball only damages one tile upon impact, the second and third phases can damage up to seven and 19 panels, respectively. Check out the Dropshot trailer below!
Along with Dropshot releasing on March 22, we have a host of other changes coming to Rocket League, including new achievements/trophies, painted Bodies and Rocket Trails, an Esports content button, the end of Competitive Season 3, a new Skill Tier hierarchy, and more!

New free 'Dropshot' mode comes to Rocket League 22-Mar-17
This new mode is actually very good fun, at least while most opponents are still trying to work it out
I imagine a lot of the goals are by accident rather than deliberate in this mode at the moment. Looks good fun as you would expect though.I'm a bit mental.
A lot of 'own goals' certainly are. It's a bit like volleyball, the more times to touch the ball and keep it in the air, the more electrified/powerful it becomes. When it hits the floor it looses that power, and if your team touched it last, then it is your colour, so it cannot damage your side of the arena, only theirs. Some players are so caught up in trying to touch the ball at any cost that they forget where the scoring opportunities are and end up helping the opponents.
Took a go at this the other day... nope You need serious air skills to be any good at this. Or just skill in general.#LETSMAKETDUCKGREATAGAIN
