    @CompetitiveDad That 1/12 gauge is not related to ranking (as such) - it is related to the rank rewards that you will get at the end of the season.

    You get a reward for 12 wins in a rank. Once you've got those 12 wins, you will need to rank up to get the next reward. You are either losing all your games (I hope not!) or you need to rank up.

    EDIT: If you've got 1/12, you may have got one win at that rank and then subsequently demoted and so you're not the correct rank to add to the tally.

    Just had this epic game in which I should have lost a hundred times!

    10 saves??! What the hell :) Well done!

    It makes me sad to see not one other switch user on that board though!!

    Yeah, there isn't many out there, is there? I think once you've found a game with Switch users, you tend to find more quite easily. It's as if all the Switch users are playing in a game at the same time. Until that point though, it's a painful wait.

    Nice! What rank is that? I hate being up by one near the end. It's always so nerve-wracking.

    That was Gold 3 on Standard, I think? 10 minutes of extra was nerve-wracking. My final save was also the winning goal. I think everybody had given up at that point. :D

    I've had about twenty people add me as a friend since I started playing on Switch, yet all they seem to want to do is invite me to a party and trade? Can you team up with friends in ranked matches?

    Yes you can. It's as easy as the host of the group finding a match instead of opening a trade. It's about as easy as it gets in gaming, so to see it work so well on Switch is almost amazing.

    Great stuff cheers. Is it quite a common thing for people to add you purely for trading? It's getting a little irritating

    Yeah, unfortunately. There's no way of telling which players want to trade and not. Just ignore the random invites, I say. Stick to people you know or on here.

    I do like the trading side of it, didn't even know what it was until a few weeks ago.

    I got some 'decryptors' during the recent Xmas event. I had no idea you only get one item from each crate. That is mental. I cannot fathom why people would spend £1.49 for the chance to get some random shit. And random shit that you might already have too. The one side of RL I'm not overly happy with. It is all cosmetic of course though so up to each individual whether they want to engage with it or not.

    Doesn't rile me up nearly as much as my cold streak over the last couple of nights though. I've deranked from Gold III to Gold II in 3s and Gold 1 to Silver III in 2s. I've had a bit of poor play admittedly but teammates have been shocking. Ballchasing, no positional awareness morons.

    Why are there so many bellends playing this game? I just played a game where I had a bad start and missed a couple of hits, which I said sorry for, and this absolute weapon starts listing how many points I've got every five seconds. This is my team mate!

    Also why don't the pricks who fly around the stage chasing aerial shots with no awareness of their teammate just play solo? There is nothing more frustrating than lining up a perfect shot and some prick flying over your head and wacking it wide.

    Trying to enjoy a few games this evening, but nobody will defend. Nobody. I've lost every game I've not stuck in goal for. And I'm not any good in goal as it is.

    I played tonight (PS4) for the first time in about a year. Had a fun time (4v4) but will be the first to admit I was an absolute liability, despite switching between defence and attack. I missed the ball 50 per cent of the time. Sorry if I let you down, Dave. Not sure I'll ever reliably nail those aerial shots. Still had an absolute blast though. I should play this more. There's nothing quite like it.

    I was mostly 3v3 tonight and I honestly don't mind people not being any good. I'm not great myself. It's just the 'you stay in goal, I'll do the rest' mentality.

    The key is to rotate and unfortunately a lot of the people online don't really know how to play the game 'properly' still. They stay up front or stay in defence, and then you get f'ed in the a - neither really works. It's really annoying.

    Still up for some late night games with peeps on PS4 if people are up for it.

    Had one of the greatest games of Rocket League yesterday, a really even game but we were down by 2 and I scored 2 quickfire goals right at the death. Then a very even and tense overtime period that went on for about 5+ minutes itself, until I completed the hat trick with one of the best goals I have scored in the game.

    Rocket League - the game I will just never stop playing.

    Replay?

    I have to say Rocket League is the game of the generation for me. I will always finish a gaming session with a game or two. It's damned near the perfect game. Simple enough to be fun for all while being complex enough to allow for ridiculous pro play.

    Yes, I milked it on ps4 and am slowly doing the same again on xbone.

    It is one of the most perfectly balance and fun games I have played in along time. I only tried it because I thought my son would like it, but its a work of genius.

    Takes a while to get your eye in again after a period of not playing it though which always pains me!

    When does the patch drop to improve the image quality of the switch version. Currently I can't stand playing it as it looks that bad

    @CompetitiveDad

    It’s had a few iterative updates. I can’t imagine anything now is going to change it much.

    I’m guessing you’ve come from playing on another platform? I’ve had it since the start and always found the graphics fine.

    @macmurphy it's the randomness of how bad it is, at times it looks like Minecraft!
    I play on the PS4, the single player training for example on the switch is fine but online. Man it's dreadful.

    I'm looking to grab a Switch soon and will definitely grab this too so that's disappointing to hear.

    In other news, looking forward to the DC Superheroes DLC in a few days. Definitely going to try out the '89 Batmobile.

    There's an update that will bump up the resolution, but the frame rate will half and that's a big issue for me. My TV is only 32 inches, so Im not really having issues with the resolution as it currently is. I'm still able to hit platinum/diamond ranks.

    Sweet sweet karma.

    Was playing 2s and I was on the goal line when a ball came in on the left side so I rocketed up to clear it. Teammate coming back from upfield towards goal bizarrely decides to go up for it too so we both clash and it pops up into the middle for the opposition to tap in while we’re both out of position. Teammate gets toxic and says “your bad”. I end up scoring the winning goal and getting MVP for the match.

    Then we get matched up on opposite sides for the next game. I’m playing with a technically gifted player with awful positioning/teamplay sense. We go down 4-2 with a minute to play. Managed to pull two back and then the “your bad” guy misses a sitter of a clearance to allow my new teammate to score the winner with seconds to go. I couldn’t help myself from saying “your bad” :).

    A prime example of why you should never gloat or be toxic in this game.
