Rocket League developer Psyonix revealed more details on how the game's revised blueprint system works when it starts next month. If you haven't followed the Rocket League for a while, the blueprint will soon replace the existing loot crates in the game. They are designed to give you greater transparency in in-game items purchased with real money. Every time you get a blueprint, you can see exactly what it unlocks. You can then decide to purchase the drop or save it in stock for later purchase. In addition, Psyonix revealed today that you can also trade with other players, including any publicly available blueprints and any in-game items purchased using the schematic.
In order to keep everyone on the same page, the Rocket League will convert all the loot boxes already in its inventory into blueprints when it is updated in December. When you start the game, they will be there waiting for you to reveal what they can become. One thing to note here is that you must first find out the content of the blueprint before trading, as this will violate the spirit of the new system.
Psyonix also revealed that in some cases, you will be able to trade credit lines, which is the new premium currency needed to unlock blueprints. The main point here is that you can exchange credits as long as only one participant provides the currency in the transaction. Another important limitation is that you can't offer credits to other players for free - you must earn a certain amount of money in the transaction.
The decryption program is an item that allows you to open the loot boxes without first purchasing a key and will be phased out in the next month's update. If you happen to have any decrypters in your inventory, they will be converted to giveaways, which you can open for free. Finally, once the new in-game economy is up and running, you will only be able to trade for items that are free of charge after the transaction. Rocket Pass items are still not eligible for trade-in.
As before, Psyonix believes that the new system is fairer to players and still allows them to monetize the game. Loot crates have been around for many years because many people have not revealed what is inside, which has become a major source of controversy.
