To our Rocket Arena community,

It’s with a heavy heart from all of us at FSG and EA to inform you that Rocket Arena will be sunset and the servers shut down on March 21, 2024 12:00 PM PDT.


Thank You! 

We can’t thank you all enough for playing Rocket Arena and supporting us during this journey. We’re thrilled that people from all around the world got to enjoy Rocket Arena for three and a half years since it launched in July of 2020. Since then, there’s been a ton of Knockouts, Megablasts, Rocketball goals, Mega Rockets captured, and coins collected. We’ve been consistently blown away by the kindness, care, and camaraderie that’s been shown from the Rocket Arena community. 

We’ve gotten to know many of you on a personal level over these years and we even have a community member that works at Final Strike now! (Shoutout to @SlackingVeteran!) Rocket Arena wouldn’t have been as special as it is without this community’s great input over th...

Mysteries abound as a new round of Rocket Arena play begins, and Crater fills with eerie apparitions and mythical monsters. Is any of it real, or just figments of our overactive imaginations?

Figment or no, let’s say hello to the newest Championship Tour player, Leef! You can’t miss him -- he’s the one with a mask, furry tail, and tree branch-like antlers. Leef is rumored to be from Crater’s fabled Realm of the Ancients. 

Exciting holiday events are on the horizon! The Gemstone Jungle will be celebrating its spooky holiday, All Crater’s Eve. What secrets lie in the Ruined City in the heart of the jungle?

Icefall Keep, Kayi’s home turf, will hold its own celebration, The Frost Festival. Keep an eye out for the festivities coming in Season 2 of Rocket Arena and join the fun!

Answer the Call of the Wilds...
and search for a magnificent, missing Megadon at Crater’s last stop The Wilds. Take off to Boone's home region from September 9 - September 22.

Search the dusty desolation and rocky cliffs of Megadon Junction, the rustic excavation site, Stompy’s Refuge, and the treacherous tar pits of the newly added Kayo Kanyon.

The Rocket Rail Line, famous for circumnavigating Crater’s rim, is behind schedule, as usual. Only this time, when the train arrives at Kayo Kanyon, its massive, amazing cargo is missing! That’s right, the giant skeleton of BOOMER THE MEGADON -- a relative of STOMPY -- has vanished during the train’s journey! Wait, a skeleton that walks? It sure looks like it! So, with only Megadon-sized clawprints to go by, Boone & Company are heading off on the hunt for BOOMER!

Journey to new event playlists, and play new game modes: Megamuzzle and Splat; then test your solo skills in Duel.

There are special Ro...

Hi Everyone

We hope you are doing great!  Thank you for all of your feedback these last few weeks on Rocket Arena. We’ve been working on several changes to roll out this weekend in the interest of improving the experience for all players.


Our main goals are to:

  1. Rework Ranked Play and improve Ranked Play Matchmaking Times
  2. Improve the Arena experience for all players by having more balanced matches

So effective 9PM PDT on September 4th, 2020 these are the changes we will be making:

Ranked Play Removal and Redesign

We have gathered all the feedback from players about difficulties matchmaking in Ranked as well as issues with rank progression. Our team has been working non-stop to improve the experience within the current design.

The current design of Ranked play restricts matching to narrow skill ranges, which is not working in all regions at all times.

At this point, we feel t...
