Rocket League Catch All

How would buying credits help you win a game? You just use them to buy cosmetic stuff or entry into the rocket pass.

I think the post from mardy is a (not so) clever ploy to get folks to click the very legit looking URLs he included.

I'm reporting the post and the user.

Yeah that’s what I was thinking. A bit longer con then normal though.

I reported it first thing this morning. Did a double take and read it again and was like oh yeah, spam. At least it's on the previous page now.

At least it wasn’t the outright pornographic images someone posted on other threads this morning

Nope that was mine.

My bad, Fennec confusion. What a Save!

Looks like double XP started today and is going until Tues for the holiday weekend.

In honor of Heatseekers reappearance, I present highlights from it's first go round.

Several feeling were hurt to make these clips.

Are we playing that for bottle rockets or are we protesting against it?

Not that I would play it any better drunk but I might hate it less.

Think I'd rather play 4s.

I found it more fun against pubbies than when we filled the room— then I started to feel bad. Flaming, you and I should team up with someone else and have another go.

I am totally down.

There's a lot more clips when Heatseeker is going on

I love the Flaming/Anti double steamroll at 4:00. That was fun.

That was fantastic.

Sorry if this has been discussed before, but reading the aging gamer thread made me wonder what my rank ceiling realistically is at 51. I've been pretty much stuck at around Diamond one in duos for the last year or so despite spending too much time in free play and training packs (which I actually enjoy about as much a playing). I feel like I'm getting better still, but it's not showing up in the rank and realistically I know there's a lot of diminishing returns going on at this point. As a disclaimer, I've never been particularly good at video games even when young so it's hard to know what's age and what's just lack of talent.

Anyhow, just wondering if we'd see an age/rank correlation here at all.

Panda and I had that discussion a few months ago. I think he's older than me and still made it to champ. But I don't think I'm going to get there.

Progress is not iterative. You can't expect training (in anything, not just this) to show up in a nice linear function mapped to results.
More importantly, if you are having fun training and playing that in and of itself is the point. If you feel yourself getting better, you probably are and eventually it may show up in rank, but its not guaranteed to.

I'm 44 and have never made it above Gold 3, so I think plywood is doing great!

I'm done.

Uninstalled.

People are awful and f*ck this game for making me have to interact with them. Never will I have to deal with an asshole playing for the other team for 4 minutes and refusing to forfeit and wasting my goddamn time.

Not here at GWJ no but I'd say it is too small a data set to really judge anything by
