The event will mark the end of season four of competitive play so players that have ranked can expect their rewards soon. Grand champions will receive a special in game title while everyone else will receive a new kind of reward. The Psyonix team is making a few changed to competitive play starting with the introduction of “trails” as prizes.
These unique trails can replace the typical white-purple-blue trail that is usually behind cars that achieve supersonic speeds. Moving forward they will also be adjusting the time between seasons of competitive play. Seasons will roll out faster and be shorter moving forward.
