Volleyball Mode

Replacing Hoops Mode in Season 2 is a new Volleyball Mode. This new 2v2 mode features a central net and a new ball. There are no goals, though. Instead, points are rewarded when the ball touches the floor. Extra Modes will also rotate each season.

Season 1 Rewards

Competitive Ranks have been reset for Season 2. Don't worry though, because all is not lost. Dedicated players will be rewarded with season-exclusive Titles and Quick Chat Stickers based on their ranking in Season 1.
