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.

If you're interested in trading for these wheels, visit the RHL Discord Server and visit the #rl-trading channel. To see the latest prices for items, use the !prices command in the channel. 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!


Icy Dicey Crisis Wins the Bronze Group Gauntlet

Team Icy Dicey Crisis has won the Bronze Group Gauntlet going undefeated and acquiring the most points overall in the bracket. Each match in the Gauntlet was a best of 3 where teams received points for each game won in their matches.

The following RHL players played on Icy Dicey Crisis during Season 1:

  • @dojomojomofo [Captain]
  • @ricearonin [Assistant Captain]
  • @halomage
  • @schrutefarms
  • @heart

For winning first place, each team member gets to select two Steam games out of a prize pool worth about $150. I asked Dojomojomofo what his experience was like in the Bronze Group and if there is anything in particular he wanted to say about his team.

"We were really lucky all the way from Gold to Bronze to have well matched opponents!," Dojomojomofo said. "The teammates who played were very dedicated. We practiced most nights during each round up to and during Bronze. While he wasn't highly visible, Rice-A-Ronin was almost always at the ready to sub in as well and I have to thank RocketMa and Foryth for playing with us so regularly too. If the season were longer, they'd surely be pulled onto the team."

The RHL congratulates team Icy Dicey Crisis on their win in Season 1. To see them in action, check out the video below.
