How to Fix Private Match Not Working in Rocket League

  • Try to delete the match and try again.
  • Many players are finding that if you just continue to repeat this process, it will work eventually.
  • Set up a Private Match under the same name. This can cause you to be dropped into another game, but it won't hard-crash Rocket League.
  • Wait for a fix from Psyonix. This sucks, but for many it may be the only option.

Psyonix have actually responded to the issue, claiming on Reddit that they are organizing a fix. It may take some time, as the issue is complex. It has been made clear, however, that the Private Match Not Working bug is a problem on Psyonix's end, and thus any fixes are temporary.

How to Fix Processing Trade Error in Rocket League

  • Initiate trade in, so that you get the Processing Trade Error.
  • Go out, all the way back to the main menu.
  • Head back into your vehicle screen.
  • Switch your car to any other car.
  • Go back into trade in.
  • If you had already initiated the trade, then it should be completed when you re-enter the screen.

The thing about the Rocket League Processing Trade Error is that it can be tricky. Yet again, this is not a permanent fix. Psyonix are, expectedly, on the case. For now, though, the above strategy is helping the vast majority of players. If you want a quick video guide, check out the video from Wayne's Up Next, on YouTube below.
