I must say this is an exciting news. Rocket league is a wonderful game that require skill and cooperation. However, it is not very popular among Asia area. Rocket league going to free to play will let more player have a chance to get in touch with Rocket League. Although cheater may be a big issue, it is still a great chance to get Rocket League get popular in Asia area. I believed it will give more choice on e-sport game type in Asia area.
