Not exactly a rules thing, but I don't know where else to put it: according to the German distributor of Mikasa, a new official game ball will be introduced in 2018, to be used also in 2020 Olympics.

I just hope Mikasa won't make too many changes again. The difference between the current and the previous one has been pretty huge, especially in reception because the serves have been floating very differently.

I would guess that they want the ball to be moving more in the air on serves than before. Maybe 6 panels?
