Why are some features disabled in Rocket League and Sideswipe?

If you have recently created your Epic Games Account or provided your age in Rocket League, then your account may now be a Cabined Account due to your age and the region you’re in. Cabined Accounts can’t access certain content or features, until they receive permission from a parent or guardian.

Cabined Accounts have the following features disabled in Rocket League:

  • Party chat, in-game chat, voice chat
  • Purchasing items for money
  • Creating or editing a club
  • Publishing a custom training pack
  • Creating a custom tournament
  • Creating a named private match
  • Using Sign in With Epic, including linking accounts to certain external services, websites or applications
  • Choosing a custom avatar or a display names

You can get access to these features by asking your parent or guardian to complete the account setup process, which they can do by clicking on the link sent to them in an email titled “Your Child Requested Permission for their Epic Games Account”.

You can also ask us to resend the parental consent email to your parent by going to the Epic Account portal in your account and following the instructions under Request Parental Permission.

Note: Some age groups will not have access to some features, despite having parental consent.

Depending on your age group, the following features may be disabled in Rocket League Sideswipe:

  • Text chat
  • Notifications
  • The ability for others to see if you are in a match
