RHL Season 5 League Play Is Nearly Complete

This weekend marks the last set of games for RHL Season 5 league play. The last place team in the Challengers Division will be excluded from the playoffs. Between all three divisions, there are two teams who remain undefeated, Vanilla Almond Milk in the Champions Division, and OWO What's This? in the Contenders division. The Challengers Division race is interesting as there is a slim possibility of a two or three way tie for first place. With A Pinch Of Salt's unfortunate withdrawal from competition Shadow Fox sits alone facing elimination, but a pair of wins and some help could see them through to the Playoffs after all.

K2: The Unofficial Wheels of Snow Day

Psyonix recently released Rocket League version 1.34 which fixes a number of issues and includes new items. This release adds a new crate called Nitro that has the following items:

  • Hexphase boost
  • Triplex Wheels
  • Neo-Thermal Boost
  • Mantis Import Body
  • K2 Wheels
  • Draco Wheels
  • Fireplug Wheels
  • An assortment of decals

Draco and K2 wheels have quickly become popular and colored variations are trading from anywhere between 2-150+ keys depending on the color. White Dracos are worth 150+ keys surpassing White Zombas while regular K2 wheels are trading for 1.5-2 keys. Two of the best things about the K2 wheels is that the default color is perfect for Snow Day and they're affordable.

According to Wikipedia, K2 is a reference for Mount Godwin-Austen or Chhogori, the second highest mountain in the world at 28,251 feet above sea level. The mountain is located on the China-Pakistan border and its peak is covered in ice and snow. It's also the second deadliest mountain for climbers with 300 successful summits and 77 fatalities.

Here is what the default K2 wheels look like in-game.

This will generate links to trusted price sheets. While it's not confirmed that Psyonix had the Snow Day community in mind when creating the K2 wheels, we like to think that they did. See you on the ICE!
