Oh My God, Rocket League Is Turning Into Basketball

Could this game get any better?

So we’re all used to Rocket League by now. There’s a ball. There’s a goal. There’s some drivers on both teams that may or may not be helping in your pursuit of getting the ball in that goal. It’s a cool game.

But what if you got rid of the goal … and replaced it with a basketball hoop?

I can’t even begin to describe how happy this makes me. There’s a good chance that the idea makes me infinitely happier than actually playing Rocket Basketball League (which is now a thing, even though the developers are running with #RocketLeagueHoops).

The hoop will be fairly low down and quite wide, which should make it a fairly accessible in terms of scoring. Defending though … well, that’s going to be a fun challenge.
