April Fools' Day 2018

  • On March 31, 2018 as part of an April Fools' Day joke, Psyonix posted the following: @RocketLeague on Twitter: "Oh, well this is embarrassing. Embiggened Mode must have been triggered by a weird sequence in the chronometer..."
  • Followed by this news article on April 1, 2018[3]:
Most Battle-Car Toppers in Rocket League are currently stuck in an experimental ‘Embiggened Mode’ that appears to have been triggered by a specific numerical sequence found in the game's chronometer. We are working to address it, but our engineers seem to think that letting the chronometer run its cycle will likely clear everything up by tomorrow.
  • On April 2, 2018 toppers were returned to normal size: @RocketLeague on Twitter: "Embiggened Mode has run its course and all Toppers should be back to their large-but-not-too-large size. Thanks everyone and we hope you had fun with us this weekend!!! ⚽️🚗🎩🔥"
