Season 12 Season Rewards (and How Season Rewards Work)
The Banner Season Rewards in Rocket League Sideswipe Season 12.
Each Sideswipe Season has three Ranked playlists: Solo Duel (1v1 Soccar), Doubles (2v2 Soccar), and a special playlist. Players have a separate rank in each playlist, which refreshes each Season. When a Season ends, your peak rank across playlists — and whether you win a match at that rank — will determine the Season Rewards you earn.
For example, if your highest rank during Season 12 is Platinum Division I in Hoops, and you’ve won a match at Platinum Division I in Hoops, you’ll get the Season 12 Platinum Banner, Season 12 Platinum Title, and Season 12 Hoops Platinum Title when Season 13 begins. You’ll also get the Banners of the previous Rank Tiers.
Peak rank in special playlists affects the main Season Rewards you get, but peak rank in regular playlists does not affect the special Season Rewards you get. For example, if your highest rank in Season 12 is Gold Division I in Solo Duel and you end the Season at Silver Division I in Hoops (and you’ve won at both ranks), you’ll get the Season 12 Gold Banner, Season 12 Gold Title, and Season 12 Hoops Silver Title when Season 13 begins.

This isn’t Soccar — it’s… BasCarball? Instead of getting the ball in a soccer goal, the goal is getting the ball in a basketball hoop. How to switch your strategy? Try going for bank shots or finishing what a ceiling bounce started! Win a match in this 2v2 playlist by getting more points than your opponents before time runs out.
