    I love this game but it has one of the worst player bases that I've been a part of. Maybe I just don't play many online games but these people are terrible at the challenger and under rank. People that leave ranked matches should be banned for like an hour or something. The ones that stop playing and get into fights in the chat are even worse.

    I'm on Xbox, but played some RL last night. Game is pretty different. I hate playing PC players for the most part, and I also hate the new arena that has a ledge. WTF.

    Neo Tokyo looks cool but I hate that it's in ranked play. I played a single ranked duel match the night the update came out and it was Neo Tokyo. Friend and I played probably 25 doubles matches last night and only got it once.

    Fun story, we got up to Challenger II Division V by about 1AM and I said... let's just play 1-2 more games to get Challenger III and call it a night. Very next game we get matched against Season 2 Grand Champions from PC (they had it for the little titles under their names all glowing and shit). I had 4-5 saves in the first 2 minutes of the game (it was like I was in a fucking shooting gallery) and we were hanging in there at 3-2 but then they just turned it up a notch with air dribbles and little touches that people other than Grand Champions just can't do or contest. We threw in the towel at 7-2 as they were about to put in goal #8. Get to the post-match scoreboard and since the stats reset with the new season one of them was still unranked and the other was a Challenger II or III so we actually got demoted from Division V to Division IV for losing to Grand Champions.

    It's pretty cool seeing that kind of skill up close and personal but it is a sobering reminder of just how much better those kinds of players are.

    Neo Tokyo is just the best one of the original rocket labs maps. I'm glad it made it to ranked and the others havent.

    i finished all of my ranked 10 matches. got elite prospect in all of them. it doesn't feel right. i think i'm better than that. i got my doubles up to two gold stripes already at least.

    I had played a ton after the rank reset. I got to top 100 on Xbox doubles. Holy fucking shit, even on Xbox there is such a massive skill gap between where I was and the people I got matched up against. I can aerial just fine but the speed is what separates those guys. I end up just being on the defensive, some of their ball control skills are impressive.

    My wall play is pretty poor too. I can't aerial off walls very well.

    Also for those annoyed at going too fast and floating in the air on Neo Tokyo all you have to do is double jump. Gets you perfectly up the ledge.

    That's not true.

    The issue right now is that there aren't people super high up for others to take ranking points away from as they climb. So you get placed a little lower than normal. Or a lot lower than normal in the pro's cases. For example, Kronovi was placed somewhere around Challenger II or III after playing his placement games in one of the playlists the night the update came out and everything reset.

    Since Duel is one of the least popular playlists (along with solo standard) it's actually easier to get a little higher rank because the game is more likely to match you against a higher rated player than it should since there are just fewer players. I placed Challenger I or II right off the bat in Duel both at the end of last season and the beginning of this one. Didn't lose any placement matches at the end of last season but I did lose 1 placement match for this season and ended up pretty much in the same place.

    Over Zero's air dribble goal in OT to force game 5... I think I celebrated just as loudly as I have while watching any regular sporting event. Then add on top of it that he looks like a mixture of Chad Kroeger, Kid Rock and Jesus... it's just too much.

    For those who didn't watch...

    From the live stream: https://clips.twitch.tv/rocketleague/HilariousOkapiUnSane

    From his POV and full post-goal replay:

    Being able to do that against anyone is incredible. Being able to do that against arguably the best team in the world in the first real, major LAN tournament ever for Rocket League on a main stage in front of an audience AS A SUBSTITUTE PLAYER? Unbelievable.

    Not sure if there is a manual for this game or something but I learn some nice tips watching these finals. Like yesterday they said "if you didn't know, the top of your car is more powerful than the undercarriage" like how would anyone know that?

    I'm really rooting for a flipside vs ibp grand final

    iBP with the 4-2 win over Flipsid3 in the grand final. What a great tournament. Over Zero aka Jesus gets MVP. Dude seems like a Gibbs/Gambit hybrid which apparently is perfect for that roster. Lachinio's defense went underappreciated this weekend I thought. When they lost 5-0 to Northern in game 1 of the upper bracket finals it seemed like it was mostly because Lachinio's epic saves and little defensive touches weren't coming yet. Once he got warmed up and back into day 1 form they were set.

    That was great. This game is so much fun to watch at that level of play.

    Blake from Workaholics was the MVP, his air game is unreal.

    The goal he almost hit at the buzzer to end game three (? I think) was ridiculous. It didn't even matter that it didn't go in, that shot was amazing.

    That didn't go in either but just seeing an attempt like that is unforgettable.

    Yea Rumble is hilariously fun and insane. The spikes are so OP. I spiked the ball near my own goal and took it up the wall, jumped and flew across the field, and freestyled into the goal. Somehow an opponent spiked it from me after it was in the goal and dragged it out through the wall. I was crying and laughing.

    I'm gonna be so pissed if I get something shitty from a crate. Gonna limit myself to 20 dollars. The game only cost 20 so I feel comfortable with this retarded purchase.

    i just got back into this game. got a couple crates and got dominous gt and photon wheels from them. 2 questions: 1. do crates just drop from competitive modes or can i get them from rumble also? because i really enjoy rumble as ridiculous as it is. 2. forgive me if they've been posted in thread already but are there some good tutorials you all have found online for how to play well, cuz i suck in general and could use some pointers.

    Crates can drop from any online game. Usually get one every few hours of gameplay. There are good tutorial videos on youtube. I'll post a couple later. Except for the pros, everyone sucks to some degree. Limiting mental mistakes is what I try to do. It makes a huge difference. Rule #1: don't ball chase

    Friend and I randomly decided to play standard the other night (usually stick to doubles) and went from Challenger Elite Division II or so to Rising Star Division V after a win and were like... wtf?

    Same friend saw the note about the update and was like, "man we gotta play doubles tonight and get our new ranks!" Long story short, I got us a 3-0 lead in our very first game and we choked it away. Friend gets super defensive when we're up multiple goals late in a game then misses the defensive hits or makes bad ones that basically just act as centers for the other team to take rocket shots on goal that I'd have to basically be Jesus to save as I rotate back. This continued for 3-4 games before I just turned my Xbox off. Ended up getting back on later by myself and getting the W for the new rank but because of the shitshow earlier I only went up to All-Star Division IV instead of Superstar Division II or so like I would have.
