preorder the steam controller and you get it free!

also, what rank is everyone?

Also Realm- For me the Bronze, Silver, Gold system is dull. Especially having to grind through 3 different tiers in each rank. (Bronze I,II,III) I think it's just me. I feel like CS:GO is the way to go only because it has more ranks

It's just a ranking system, not sure what's dull about it... They went from having 3 levels (Bronze, Silver, Gold) to 9 (Bronze, Silver, Gold I - III)... I think it's a good change... I never really played much CSGO or LOL to compare the ranking systems, but I don't see how it matters what they are called...

So mostly just a personal preference type of thing, not necessarily that there's truly anything wrong with it, per se?

How much is the steam controller, because I think the connector for my XBox controller would be cheaper.
EDIT: Just read about Steam Link & Controller. It really only seems worthwhile if I got it with the Steam Link since I'm very rarely at my desktop computer these days and very frequently near my TV. Unfortunately I have a bad feeling that 802.11n connection to my desktop on the far end of the house probably wouldn't be a very enjoyable experience. Being a product beta tester for a full price purchase also isn't something I'm too sure about. :-/

Yeah, I believe it is working fine (ranking system).

Wish they showed Rated Standard as well as Rated Solo since they are two different ratings.

Playing 1v1, I've won one of my last 10 or 15 games... And the people I'm playing against are "Pro" which is probably less than 20 hours of play-time. I'm "Expert" with over 170 hours in the game... One game, the guy was even taunting me saying how are you expert and so terrible... He beat me like 5-2.

It's not like the people I'm playing against are good. Sure they have occasional good plays, but it's mostly me vs the ball. Can't dribble, can't hit the ball clean, missing the ball in the open field... Fucking frustrating.

I hope they add a disable chat option. I really don't like the MOBA type of trash talk.

edit. they do. yay

edit2: Looks like the rating system is a bit broken, hopefully they just use the hidden MMR rating after they fix it.

They re-seeded players based on their performance in the 'pre-season'. You could only move up, not down. My 1v1 went from 412 to 600.

Finally got this yesterday, fun but I feel like it's gonna take a while to get the hang of all the airborne stuff. Need to tinker with a good setup for cameras to track ball when out of sight.

Beelze, default camera settings are pretty good, but you have to get used to using ball cam 99% of the time, switching only for to get boosts, when you are directly under ball, or for demolitions... Add me on Steam I play all the time.

They are all the same. The cars are just skins. I do prefer the smaller ones, though, because it seems to be easier to angle shots... though I suppose that could just be a placebo.

^ a little true, if you luckstreak and rank up you'll rank down real fast to where you belong. i've never been vastly better than my rank, but always slightly as i played diff modes and improved faster than i ranked up in any one mode. if you are similar then yea the rate at which you climb is greatly controlled by how much the teammate gods love u and something like 80-90% of goals scored against u will feel like teammates' mistake given level of play.

for me ~silver 3 or gold 1 ppl have started outplaying me with good plays for goals constantly and my weaknesses are glaring. im excited to see how the new ranking system will work

Man, I swear this game pairs you with other players that are slumping just causing a death spiral... I went from Challegner Elite to Challenger 3 to Challenger 2 in 2.5 days in Solo Standard... Tried to play a few matches this morning to see if it was any better, I was playing better but my teammate were terrible lost 3 games in a row...

Why get depressed about losing rating? If you lose rating and you should have, be glad you're not fighting too tough opponents. If you shouldn't have, you're going to rape your next games because your opponents are likely to suck compared to you. Either way, a drop in ranking is a fine adjustment.

Tried playing it this evening. Are any of you using the keyboard? Controls seem awkward to get used to with powerslide when using the keyboard, which I can easily tell is probably one of the most important skills to be able to use (to get in to proper position).

unfortunately this game has a mechanism that tries to react to your rating trends. ever notice that after a huge W streak you tend to get L streaks? or after an L streak you seem to get it back together and string together lots of Ws? The system sees your W streak and tries to give you the chance to move up at a faster rate by giving you super difficult games. The inverse is true when you lose a ton (less so by my estimation/experience but could be wrong since ive always been 'underrated'.)


Say your current rating in a mode is 740, but your level of play is actually 900. You'll win streak enough to reach 820. Then the game reacts and gives you games where your true level of play would need to be 1100 to win. This is sometimes done by giving you super difficult opponents (and conversely strong teammates), which personally I'm fine with. But it's also done by giving you horribly bad teammates and opponents that are equal to you. Which can be frustrating. Especially because you're better than your rating if the games were actually balanced, but not enough to actually reach it with the game anticipating changes in your rating's uncertainty.

The end result is that if you are trending upward, you end up floundering below your 'true' rating, and end up playing lots of games where most players arent as good as you, and still only win around half, in a very streaky distrubution. Takes a long time to move up unless you are very very underrated, and the system is determined to keep your rating a little wrong through unequal teams.

If your rating is accurate and not moving around much, the games are fine for the most part and streaks are just a product of variance

Thanks FL! Doubles is awesome. Like I said before the ranking system is a bit... interesting. You can't carry dead weight like you possibly could in a MOBA, so when you get paired with a complete tool it really really makes it impossible to win. 75% of the challenge is trying to cover your partners inabilities while the other 25% is lucky fucking bounces.

Games get really good when you start moving up the ladder, but makes it impossible to know your standing now with the new system- you can really only notice when you are playing against people the next level up so keep an eye out for that. Wish they would change that so you know where you stand / how close you are to ranking up.

Overall the devs over there are doing a really good job listening to the community- very active on reddit which is nice. DLC content isn't over whelming or needed but it's cheap enough to get for a new car or deals etc etc.

side note- what the fuck. i hate the wasteland map in ranked 2s. seems like it's fucking HUGE.

What the fuck is slackchat?

Also, x, Wasteland is awesome map... So many good air plays available from all over the map... the goal seems larger and because the sides are sloped makes it amazing for sending balls in from a long way away...

Yup, I never really had success doing aerials with the keyboard. They are a must if you want to move ranks. Although my main goal is just to hit the ball forward more then anything else lol

If you shouldn't have, you're going to rape your next games because your opponents are likely to suck compared to you. Either way, a drop in ranking is a fine adjustment.


unfortunately this game has a mechanism that tries to react to your rating trends. ever notice that after a huge W streak you tend to get L streaks? or after an L streak you seem to get it back together and string together lots of Ws? The system sees your W streak and tries to give you the chance to move up at a faster rate by giving you super difficult games. The inverse is true when you lose a ton (less so by my estimation/experience but could be wrong since ive always been 'underrated'.)


Say your current rating in a mode is 740, but your level of play is actually 900. You'll win streak enough to reach 820. Then the game reacts and gives you games where your true level of play would need to be 1100 to win. This is sometimes done by giving you super difficult opponents (and conversely strong teammates), which personally I'm fine with. But it's also done by giving you horribly bad teammates and opponents that are equal to you. Which can be frustrating. Especially because you're better than your rating if the games were actually balanced, but not enough to actually reach it with the game anticipating changes in your rating's uncertainty.

The end result is that if you are trending upward, you end up floundering below your 'true' rating, and end up playing lots of games where most players arent as good as you, and still only win around half, in a very streaky distrubution. Takes a long time to move up unless you are very very underrated, and the system is determined to keep your rating a little wrong through unequal teams.

If your rating is accurate and not moving around much, the games are fine for the most part and streaks are just a product of variance


That doesn't make sense. Assessment of the system you present suggests it should escalate your ranking if you are significantly off, yet you suggest the opposite. Sounds like you are trying to justify the system keeping you at a lower rank than you think you deserve, rather than any true inherent problem.

I made gold, not sure why you would think that, my rating is fine. Anyway, my point is the way the system makes matchups forces mismatches based on people's trends, so any streak (or anyone else in your match's streak), your matches are going to be pretty drastically lopsided. This is obviously not ideal.

Your comprehension is lacking because I specifically said if you are slightly better than your ranking it takes far too many matches to reach and the average match quality can be low during this stretch. If you really are leagues ahead of where you are, you'll quickly reach that neighborhood, but even that is not really my point. It's that the system tries too hard to correct people's ratings drastically even after a large number of games and creates lots of matches that are not very even. The good news is that games are 7 minutes and not like 45 like in a moba.

It's pretty childish to assume anyone who wants to improve the ranking system or matchmaking system of a game must be complaining about their rating. Some of us are just interested in that type of thing :) Just cause you had to accept that you suck doesn't mean it's a driving force behind everyone else's behavior

Currently level 17 semi-pro. Still need to practice aerials, angles, and understand the vehicle hit-box a bit better.

Yeah, been doing just that. Need to be a dick to my unranked match teams and practice aerial thrust a bit more. I hate that very few people understand defense though.

Ranked play sucks too when you don't have a team. Seems (right now) there are mostly only teams participating. So as a solo user I get stuck with shitty 2-man teams playing against an OK or decent 3-man team. Goalie thrusts out of goal on start and bashes me out of the way, opponent scores, wash/rinse/repeat. Last night some guy rage quit and because it's ranked we had to play 4 minutes more of 2v3 ranked match. Just stupid stuff like that - or my own team mates thrust-ramming me "just because", or stealing goals, etc. Having a team is so much better.

Edit: Just realized what 3v3 solo meant.

I haven't grouped with anyone for a long time. I never know how many games I'm going to play so don't want to commit to a group lol.

Like I said before, half the battle is trying to figure out what the fuck your teammate is doing and what they're good at. I've been pretty lucky not having shitcan teammates or playing against smurfs.

Within the first minute you should be able to tell what the game plan is. Who is going to be main attacker, defender, will centers work, rotations, is the opposition good or bad (or smurfs- fuckers), pace of play fast or slow, etcetc. Don't try and do too much or try for the hard air shots.

Reset makes you start from 100 points... Even Kronovi has to work his way up...

I'm currently Prospect Elite, but it's tough sledding with some of my teammates... Even if I play back the whole game, all they do is chase the ball.

Also. I'm so glad they did a hard reset. Being able to play against the higher ranked players has been pretty fun. The most frustrating thing so far has been the match-ups being really funky. Was matched with another Challenger 1 but we played against Challenger 3s.

Again you have to play to your teammates strengths & weaknesses. You had 5 saves, he had 5 shots. The scrub should have been ignored, basically 2v3. Doubt you woulda won anyway, but if no one is rotating- stay back!

I'm confused by their website. When does the season start? Their social media feed makes it look like they've already started, but their registration form does not.

I won't really be able to play until my PC is rebuilt which I expect to be completed in about 2 weeks or so, and although I'm newb (rocketing), I'd like to play with you guys (3v3). If necessary I can try to play before my PC is rebuilt, but I can't guarantee my rig won't freeze up (thus the necessity for the upgrade).

I was waiting for the video card to be released (AMD Radeon RX 480), which was yesterday. It was the last piece to the puzzle. I opted for standard shipping, so it gets to me by the 7th. I have a weekend race out of town so won't be back until the following Monday, and then I've got a load of work so can't guarantee a working PC until the end of that week.

Glad you asked? :P

From the link to Reddit that Brad (FL-) posted, it looks like there aren't really any true deadlines.
The ORSA season is 5 weeks in length. New teams may join at any point before or during any season. New teams will be placed into one big group and matched up up using a swiss system to determine which will help determine which league to place them in. Once new teams have completed a season in this manner, they will graduate to the ORSA ladder, and be fully fledged members of the association!

Even if they did close off the season mid-season (which it seems they don't?), the seasons are only 5 weeks. Easy enough to join up. They said they just finished up their 5th season on the 1st of July.

honestly.... I wouldn't waste your time boys. I barely got into Challenger Elite and was promptly sent back down. Shit is rough. Really need to have airials down or able to make some contact. Matching system is still pretty fucked. Been paired with rising stars, went bad. Played against rising stars, went bad- I was only Challenger 3.

So far this season in 2v2 I've only made it to challenger 1. But when I was Prospect Elite division 5 it took me like 6 wins in a row before I made the jump and now I'm stuck here whether I win or lose. Very difficult lately

i had a chance to go up to challenger 2 but my teammate seemed to think I was a "goal stealer" even though I had no idea where he was on the map and I don't give a shit who scores I just want my team to win, and he proceeded to score against us on purpose and make it 3v1 until we lost in extra time to "get back at me". stupid game. reminded me so much of the good old days of GB

I primarily played unranked solo standard. It's primarily the same. Every once in awhile you'll get a good or great team(mate). Other times you get some funny grouped team that you play against (I enjoy those). Whether they kick our ass or we beat 'em, I want to keep playing against them. They make the game enjoyable.

Very few players understand positioning, it seems. If you hold back a bit and wait for the ball to drop in an opportune position, it's super easy. Even fewer understand when you're actively trying to set up an assist. I can't count how many times I've centered the ball in front of the net and my team mates were both back at our goal to get a booster. ...like, wtf. Conserve fuckwads.

So I tried 1v1 on Friday (current PC setup, got 1 3v3 solo and 2 1v1 games in before RL caused the whole PC to crash). Just like in GB I'm a much better teammate than solo player.

Well most people are. I've never done 1s, mainly because you really have to be able to have ball control. I can dribble here or there but nothing crazy. Have to focus on toggling Ball Cam... I think? :|

Solo is difficult, you just really have to focus on defence because once you give up position, any good player can dribble it straight down and right on goal. And the opening rush is also key, you lose position there they score automatically. I have noticed that if I warm up with 1v1, I play much better in anything 2v2 or higher.

Made it to Shooting Star right before the wipe in 3v3 standard (what I like to play). For me, the key without a doubt was defense. You have to be THE defensive anchor on your team....knowing when to be aggressive or when to hold back. Clearing the ball high and long every time. (Not crappy clears on the ground or short). Try to be sort of like a roaming sweeper and goalie when it's needed. Aerials have to be on point defensively. Once good at that, the ball is basically on the enemy side of the field like 70% of the time. Your teammates will inevitably score or you pick your spots to attack but NEVER risk leaving the backfield alone. Gold players are not good enough at rotations yet and they will leave your defense for dead a good bit.

Once you find that balance you start winning a ton of games more than you lose and you'll find that you are the one controlling the game. Once I learned this (it suddenly just triggered one day) I went on a winning spree of like 15-1 and that was at the top of Challenger Elite.

Once you get to the blue ranks like halfway thru, the strategy changes a bit (since most players are super solid on defense at that point).

A few tips:
1. If you and a teammate are both going for the same ball, always yield. Especially aerials. He's either going to do something good or F it up at which point be ready to clean up his mistake. Often times that results in a decent shot for you from mid-range.
2. Really focus on high booming clears. Timing is everything, not your speed. More often than not, I'm slowing down just to time my impact just after the ball bounces off the ground. If i had hit the ball earlier with more speed, that doesn't necessarily result in a better clear.
3. If you have no momentum to clear its often best to let your teamates (who probably have momentum). That's obvious but I see too many players trying to just bump it along...you're only getting yourself in a bad position doing that most of the time.
4. Be aggressive defensively. Attack the ball. Big time. If you're waiting around in goal you're going to get scored on eventually.

^ echoing this but I played 2v2 and reached gold forever ago and quit after season 1 or whatever.

become perfect at defense and focus on making good hits. don't center the ball for your opponent, and always be aware of where all the players are. For me, it really helped when I reached a level where everyone could shoot and hit the ball, because it started to pay off that I focused so much on when touching the ball was actually beneficial. i was far stronger at decision making than outstanding controlling and the higher you get the more decisions matter.

think about the specific things your teammates do wrong, or could do better. then avoid doing those things. (ie big one, dont FUCKING hit the ball sideways on offense for no reason, pay attention to where in the corner produces proper pop-ups that can be aerial-tapped in for goals.) Don't be afraid to hit the ball backwards if your teammate is decent at hitting the ball and no opponents are around. passing is still so severely undervalued. most players are just touching the ball sideways, or extremely ineffectual rolls into the corner as soon as they can 80% of the time.

but yeah goal prevention is far more important than scoring. it's pretty easy to still contribute to offense while playing defense. just make up your mind that you won't allow the other team to score and then take the opportunity to play offense when its almost completely risk free.

hah! I just don't understand how he does it- or anyone else. I used to think it was 75% luck that their dumb 'free style' aerials but damn he does it every time.

I made it to Challenger Elite this season and promptly got my ass kicked back down to Challenger 3. I don't know how people solo 2's to get to Rising Stars it seems impossible with this player pool. Has anyone turned off cross platform matching so you're only playing with PC players? I'm debating on doing that cause the PS4 / Xbox players I have been getting...... :|

Are you using a PS4/Xbox controller? I'm using the Xbox One controller with my rig.

Speaking of rig, I finally got my new PC (mostly) configured and running, and with Windows 10. Either the mobo's NIC is a POS or Win10 is doing way too much background networking. My work PC isn't doing it though so not sure what the issue is there.

...anyways, played some Rocket League last night and HOLY SHIT, it's like a whole new experience. It's so much easier when you can actually play the game! Played some unranked 3v3 standard and only lost once out of 4 matches (placed in to a losing team, promptly scored two goals but my team was just terrible, one of 'em scored on our own goal, and then missed an easy save). Only lost by one point, but w/e. Super pumped to be able to experience this game the way I should've been since the beginning.

BTW - what was in the most recent update other than the end-game camera view/player stats?

Excellent Realm. Now we'll have to get a lot of good luck to be placed together as we're on different platforms! And I agree with X too. I made it to Challenger 2 (still as a veteran) and I got put in a match against a team that had one of them as a Rocketeer and the other as a Legend and my partner was a Pro, and we got appropriately destroyed.

It was about 8-0 about half way through and the only reason I didn't want to forfeit was to see what these fuckers could do in terms of passing and aerials. It was unreal.

ur ranked high in 3 modes gk, i dont think that could really be inaccurate

i just got rising star in standard which im proud of, i quit a long time playing only quake (reached #1 in clan arena!!!). switched to controller which i was super terrible with, only just now better with it than mouse/kb. i'd be higher in doubles but i have been playing standard exclusively because im weak at it


btw i played a match with lachinio (part of team that just won a world tournament or something), saw the name and thought for sure it was an imposter, but then almost everything he did the whole game was something id never do, and almost all of it worked. was really nuts. we won in a shutout.


realm the recent update was new items/chests and trading and whatnot

ranking update was pretty nice. I think it kinda got those stuck in the middle (Challengers) back into the game by giving them Rising Star. Other then that game kinda fizzling for me. Introduction of crates was cool, first 3 I opened I got the red truck and the Type-S car which was pretty awesome and wanted me to play a few more games... but I usually play 3-4 games and I'm over it for the day :(

Might be that I just need to play ranked in order to get whatever crap I need to open 'em.

Have you figured out what's required to create maps? I'm thinking we'd need to use the Unreal engine tools, and from what I can tell our (graphical) assets are rather limited too. The skate park map shows that obstacles are indeed possible and the time trial map shows that rather large maps are also possible.

I think, for spit & polish, figuring out how to take advantage of Psyonix's terrain assets would be necessary.

This game doesn't autocorrect for people leaving or being AFK very well at all. I played nearly a whole match 3v1 because two people dropped off my team right after it started, and numerous matches 3v2 because someone was AFK and didn't get booted.

Played w/HW the other day. egg played w/him last night. Keep getting told to get Discord but never provided the room/server info.

Maybe you guys should join our Slack chat too then. That info is in a sticky topic right in this forum.

With discord it's more secure. There isn't even server info to share way up front. The invitations are generated on the spot and expire after a set amount of time. It's partly to stop brute force attempts to get your server details.

So you'll just get a link to gain access and once you're in it keeps you till you remove it or get removed by someone.

Also, if you decide to hang out on someones voice chat server and they turn out to be assholes, with Discord they don't get any of your info either. No IP sharing.

It's the best one I've come across.

I got a Steam Controller for xmas, how anyone likes this is beyond me. The ABXY buttons are SOO close together, half the time when I try to hit x twice I end up hitting Y and switching my view screwing everything up. I've been playing with a DS4, I cannot do anything with this Steam controller, yet I keep trying, about to shelve it and stay playing with my DS4. Problem is my DS4 won't hold a USB cable anymore it falls out all the time... so I had to wrap rubberbands around it to hold it in... blah!

I'm quite happy with my Xbox One controller and the wireless functionality works well enough (only fails when the batteries die). (I originally had it connected with the cable, but bumped it ever so lightly just enough times that the port got stretched out, like yours.)

Supposedly the Steam controller is getting revised, but ever since I heard that was going to happen I hadn't heard any updates since...

Cruel, are you willing to play with people at much lower ranks than you (i.e.: just starting)? I get the impression that you'd get stressed. ;)

ill play with anyone, im not too concerned with my rating, i cant really get it much higher than i deserve or fall below shooting star div. 3, bouncing b/t there and mid all-star. just focusing on improving. the problem with hi/lo rating party means all the opponents will be close to the high rated player and its really hard to overcome teamwork that teams with tighter rated players will have, and you'll lose most games. or at least the way i play i dunno how to beat multiple equals without some help. if its unranked then i super don't care, msg me on steam and ill play that goes for anyone here http://steamcommunity.com/id/jonathanahaha

I was in the process of doing it. Locating everyone's steam ID for the format required in those sigs isn't a 1:1 lookup. Dunno what Philek's steam id is (or ACX and some others) so it's not a complete list.

Your the best x...

I played a few 4v4 with egg, Allust, Realm last night, then Realm and I did some ranked 2v2. Realm and I actually won one or two as well...

I really would like to get Rising Star before Season 4... not sure if it's going to happen though.

By "Realm and I actually won one or two as well..." what he means is that he won, and I sat there and watched. Only goals I managed to score were against rather weak opponents. I think out of 5 matches we played I scored 3 times. The last team we played were tough. I wish I stopped two goals that I should've stopped, and scored when I should have (but missed). Would've ended differently even though they were overall far more skilled than I am.

I really don't play 2v2s because I feel like if I fuck up it's a SERIOUS disadvantage. At least with 3v3 you're not solely responsible for mistakes. Still learning maneuvers and such.

Updates for Season 4 (starting today):

Neo Tokyo map removed from competitive and standard play (for now)
New game mode: Dropshot (see video here)
New (additional) skill tiers with fewer (4 instead of 5) divisions (to hopefully improve matchmaking)
Soft skill reset (instead of a full reset, they're automatically ranking players loosely based on previous season play)
Updates to matchmaking formula

Full description of the changes: https://www.rocketleague.com/news/changes-coming-with-competitive-season-4/


New tiers:

got to gold 3 and started playing with Plats... promptly got shot down to Gold 1. :| The range of skillsets right now is pretty wide I'm hoping it starts to even out.


It's really fun though seeing your rank actually fluctuate. You can probably manage gaining an entire level with 10 games

Just hit Platinum 2 this evening. It was pretty rough going up against Grand Champs from S3 *right* after the reset. The rankings are starting to set just right and slowly making the climb.

I feel bad playing ranked 2s if I fuck up on d/rotation...no way to hope for the 3rd man coverage.

Playing ranked 3s (solo-standard) just plain sucks though when you get terribly shitty players...so not sure which is better. :P

Discord honestly helps quite a bit. Easier to hear other people's thoughts on how they play to adjust your playstyle accordingly, rather than trying to learn visually and thinking, "wtf are they thinking???", or "%$^# dammit their rotation is %$^'ing confusing!!" ...and still never truly figuring things out.

meh. It takes me a few possessions to to adjust play style. You can tell pretty quick if the person you're playing with is good:

is always behind you instead of playing the other side
is an attacker / defender
can hit the fucking ball -> can hit the fucking ball in the air

in Gold 2 atm and ball striking is the biggest problem - and i do it a fair share myself

haven't put a lot of time into this season, playing maybe max 10 games a session but seems like the new skill ratings are pretty accurate

What do you mean by "ball striking"? Surely not simply not missing??
