Re: Rocket League

Yeah installing Xbox controller is a real pain on systems older than Win10, got through it twice now. It's doable with a cable and google. Somebody has uploaded the correct drivers somewhere. I couldn't get the wireless to work though and I'm not sure if anyone can.

**** like this frustrates me with companies, they made it harder on purpose to push people on Win10 I assume.

Re: Rocket League

after struggling to even hit champion this whole season and getting my rewards last season fairly easily I managed to get this season's reward one day before it ended. Go figure.

Re: Rocket League

so my steam time played is 300 hours now, but thatís probably inaccurate because i leave app running for long periods when iím not at the keyboard. Say iím like 150 hours in. Bounce around gold III to plat II.

Plat is really weird. The players are super inconsistent as far as skill. I think Iíve begun to plateau and Iím not gonna rank up any further until i practice mechanics. I canít really do fancy aerials, I can do the quick take off and control my car decently in the air but those long crazy aerials, nah. Canít control the ball well in the air either. I canít really hit the ball off the wall that well but getting better.

I think I could be actually really decent at this game if i put the time in to practice but i dont know what to practice and iím not sure what the reward would be, how i play the game now is fun to me

Re: Rocket League

I think I've peaked skill-wise, it's been a long time since I felt like I was getting better at any particular skills.

I'm in diamond and I think I'm above-average at my skill level for playing goalie and anticipating opponents' plays, but I have the wall skills of a gold player and I don't even know how/when to use air roll.

Re: Rocket League

and I remember thinking a few times I've peaked skill wise... there's always something to learn and you'll learn that. I've gotten champion rewards last 3 seasons now and if I play every day I know I'll eventually improve, it's guaranteed. Just needs consistency. I don't do enough training.

I might hit a 'downswing' and play worse for 50-100 hours, that happens too.

I remember watching goofy and thinking wow he's good and now he's saying he's a diamond player? No way.

This is me exactly (except for the goalie part cause I'm brutal in net)

It's pretty unbelievable seeing how great some of these guys handle their cars in the air but how terrible they are at general positioning and teamwork

Re: Rocket League

Idk what I'm good at - I think I have a strong sense of positioning, knowing where to be at what times, and I know for a fact I'm extremely fast at moving my car around the field. I don't know if i can explain it right - do you guys know what I mean? Even at plat I feel like I'm often driving circles around everyone and they're going in slow motion. If my teammates suck I usually can rotate on my own shots multiple times.
I usually move around at top speed and spend very little time just sitting unless I'm goalie, and even then I push up pretty far when I know I can get away with it and I have the boost to get back to the net if there's a rogue shot towards it.

I make a habit of only trying to touch the ball if I know I can make a good hit that puts us in a better position (unless it's an emergency type of scenario that doesn't allow that).

I'm pretty decent at maintaining and stealing possession of the ball. Very good at clearing, passing, centering, decent at scoring. If I miss a shot in a game I know was makeable I go into training and try to recreate it until I nail it most of the time.

But yea like give me a high lobbed ball kind of above me and I probably don't even go for it because someone will get there first or I just dont have the control in the air to go for high aerial bangers. Off the wall I am getting a little better but I cant really control where the balls gonna go, can't get very good hits and if it's above the net, yea odds aren't great I'll be able to defend it up there unless I was already there.

Re: Rocket League

Id just work on aerials then

I think reaching high diamond and champ really makes the game more fun. Whiffs are more rare, so you can anticipate everything much better and there are passing plays, rotations are (normally) smooth.

I noticed I enjoyed the game a lot more once I was out of plat
