Private Matches are required to be used if there are technical issues preventing your PlayVS Rocket League match from spinning up (e.g. server error, API issues, etc.). The results of Private Matches must be submitted to PlayVS by team coaches through the match dashboard after completion of all games in a match. Stats are not passed through to PlayVS when Private Matches are used, so we can only gather W/L results in these cases.

TL;DR for utilizing private matchmaking in PlayVS College Rocket League:

Potential Issues

Create a Match (completed by the Home Coach)

The "Home" team will be BLUE. The "Away" team will be ORANGE.

Watch this video if you need help creating a private match:

  1. Coach will choose a Team Captain (if one is not already appointed).
  2. Coach or Team Captain follows match creation steps and shares the name and password with their team.
  3. The rest of the team joins the custom match in the Rocket League client.
  4. Once the match is created, the Coach or Team Captain will send the game name and password to the opponent Coach or, if unresponsive, their Team Captain and/or other players.
