What is Platinum I in Rocket League?
Platinum I is the first Platinum rank placement in Rocket League located between Gold 3 and Platinum 2. This is a rank where players begin to show dedication to the game. Players will have the ability to perform advanced moves like wall shots and aerials on a semi-consistent basis, will be much more tactically aware, have a firm grasp on the mechanics of the game and players will also be better playmakers, rather than simply lumping the ball upfield or relentlessly aiming to score from any position. This is where players truly begin their ascent to greatness.
What is The MMR For Platinum I
To become a Platinum I player in Rocket League your MMR needs to be approximately between 650-705 MMR depending on the game mode you play in matchmaking. Below you can find the range of Platinum I players and their various MMR rankings depending on which game mode they are playing:
|1V1||635 - 692|
|2V2||653 - 705|

Is Platinum I a Good rank?
You would say that Platinum I is a very respectable rank. Including the ranks below, this makes Platinum players rank in the top 49,73% of all players. If you are in this rank, you are better than half the players who play Rocket League matchmaking (ranked). It is the first rank that players will sit up and take you seriously at. Gold players are by and large, inconsistent, average players. However, Platinum players are those that have weathered the storm, came out the other end and have the drive to hone their skills further. So while Platinum is still one of the lower ranks, it’s certainly one that garners a modicum of respect for those that hold it.
How Many Hours to Achieve Platinum I?
To break into the platinum ranks you will need to break free from the shackles represented by the inconsistent teammates provided by the gold ranks. You will need to be tactically aware, have a firm grasp of the games’ core mechanics, be able to aerial and shoot from walls with some level of consistency and you will need to be an all rounder on the field rather than a specialist. So we reckon 100-150 hours should carry you to this level.
How to Improve from Platinum I
Here are a number of things that players can rank up in Rocket League and improve their game when ranked in Platinum I:
- Be dedicated to improving. While some players in this rank may be technically better than you to begin with, out working your competition will see you soar past them.
- Practice aerials and frequently try to use this training in match scenarios. Learning and perfecting aerials now will lead to better results at higher ranks.
- Focus on being more of a playmaker than just a defender or a goalscorer. Play passes off the back wall, play diagonal balls and generally just be more aware of your teammates position.
- Rotation is a must at this level if you want to succeed. So watch training tutorials or learn from more skilled players how to rotate properly
- Consider adding a mic to your setup or playing with a friend who you work well with. Effective communication at this level is a sure fire way to put together consistent wins.
