Controller Information:

If you wish to bring your own controller, please read this information very carefully, as this causes a great deal of problems for us if participants are unable to comply with these requests:

You can plug any DualShock 4 (PS4) Controller, DualSense (PS5) Controller, Xbox 360 Controller, Xbox One Controller and Xbox Series X|S Controller into our computers to use with Rocket League, however they MUST have a USB charging cable. Our computers do not have wireless connection capabilities, and must be connected via a USB charging cable. Please ensure that you bring your USB charging cable with your controller on the day. Other controllers may work, however, anything other than those listed above are not listed on Rocket Leagues website as officially supported, therefore we can not guarantee they will work.

Charging cable condition and controller charging port condition:
Please pay close attention to the quality and condition of your controllers cable and charging port. Just because a worn and heavily used controller can still be charged with your cable, does not mean it is in a suitable condition to receive complex input and output information through the charging port. We see many controllers brought to our events that are in horrendous quality, where kids have been disappointed to learn that it does not work via USB connection for controller input.

Methods of testing your controller condition for event day:
If your USB charging cable for your controller literally pivots in the charging port 360 degrees, it is definitely not going to work. If your USB charging cable literally falls out of the charging port, it is definitely not going to work.

If you wish to test your controller on our computers, you might be able to do so during the team sign-in, between 5:00pm and 8:00pm, Friday 6th May. We might be able to confirm then if it's suitable to use for the tournament. However, depending on our work load, we may be too busy to do this, so this is all subject to circumstance.

If in the event that your controller is not in a suitable condition to be used for the tournament, we have some of our own third-party branded controllers (non-official branded) that you will have use instead. However, we can not guarantee the condition of our controllers either, as they receive substantial use with other kids.

Under no circumstances will anyone receive a rematch due to controller issues as a result of their condition.
