    Got a Switch the other day...and Rocket League (double-dip)! Who's up for some games some time? Still getting used to it a little on the Switch but I'm a solid Gold/close Plat on PS4 in 2s and 3s.

    There's a fair few of us who play frequently. I rarely get to coordinate playing with others though as I'm always heading offline when others come online. However, if we can organise a time in advance, I should be able to play!

    After a while I played some more matches. I have never scored more than 10 goals in an online game before in 1v1 and it was a legit match not like there was cheating involved.

    Then decided to get involved in 3v3 and it was a little crazier because internet starting to fuck up and got booted out especially where I scored a goal and didn't register and then got kicked off.

    All in all I had a great session. Normally I don't win a lot but just lucky tonight.

    Much better on Switch now. Got used to playing with the joycons - although they're still not as good as a DS4. Should probably grab a Pro controller at some point.

    Players are a bit of a mixed bag I've found. I've managed to reach the heady heights of Plat 2 on 3s (Gold 3 on PS4) but only Silver 3 on 2s. One thing I have found on the Switch though is the difference settings make to play. The default deadzone on Switch is huge so I've shifted it down and my aerial play feels far more sensitive. Feels positively treacle-like on the PS4 in comparison. Should probably switch the settings there too.

    Friend code is SW-5354-7386-0415 if anyone is up for a game some time.

    Got a 5 minute ban tonight for being idle. Except I wasn't idle. The connection went funky for 10 seconds and then booted me out, just after the game ended. I tried to capture the footage on my Switch, but it only captured the previous 11 seconds of footage, rather than 30.

    How weird.

    Heady heights of Plat 3 on 3s and Gold 1 on 2s now. Being carried a bit in 3s I think but not enough to make me feel bad. But it makes a whole world of difference when you have teammates who are even a bit competent. I was paired with the same guy in 2s last night two games in a row and the bugger fucked me both games. I made my share of mistakes but missing an easy on the floor clearance with 5 seconds to go when we were 1 up in the last game really annoyed me.

    @The_Goon

    Good games mate. We had the same opposition a few times on the bounce which was weird. They just beat us the bastards.

    I had a few Karius defensive horror shows but you caught a lot up for me. I can tell youíre a better player because of all the freaky wall shit you do. Was nice to play with someone good. If ever you see me on there, feel free to chuck an invite over.

    We should get Dave in for some 3vs3.

    I'd be up for that. I'm platinum on standard, but I can't do any wall stuff. I've never bothered training to perfect fancy skills. I can aerial, but that's about it.

    He's flattering me. I miss more wall shots than I hit. Need to work on them really. The lack of voice chat on Switch really hit home in the games though.

    It certainly is a bummer when you're playing organised games, but I find it a blessing against strangers. Especially for Rocket League! Even the text chat grinds my gears.

    Oops. I was meant to say I am Diamond on Standard. Not platinum. Although the rankings have now reset, so that no longer means anything.

    This game is so frustrating at times. The other night, I must have lost 10 games on the trot across 2s and 3s, of which I only felt one or two were really deserved losses. But then someone invited me to party up and we killed it, winning like 6 games in a row and both levelling up. It makes such a difference.

    If anyone is up for any late night games, hit me up. I'm usually on PS4 or Switch for an hour or so from around 11pm.

    New update has introduced clubs! Going to create a Eurogamer clan! Who wants in? Thinking 'EURO' or 'EGM'?

    The clan is created! Team EG! If you want in, and are happy to play with other like minded/ not particularly good Rocket League folk then add me on psn - cjb_bjc

    The system's a little convoluted atm, meaning we need to party up before I can add you to the club.

    A pretty successful start was made, with a clean 3 game streak accomplished. You also get shiny new trophies!

    Sweet! I'd be up for that. What kind of time are you usually on?

    My playing times are pretty sporadic atm. All depends when I get a chance. If i spot you online I'll try and team up!

    In other news, this pass thing is nuts! The progression is too slow! And the deadline is too.

    I'm on tier 4 currently. It feels like you need to play A LOT to get the most out of it. And it looks bonkers expensive - 10 keys = £15, right? That's a lot of moola for the chance to win/earn stuff if you play enough. If it were cheaper and progression was quicker, I'd probably be willing to drop some cash on it but not fussed about cosmetics to spend on it currently.

    WHY do two of my teammates not attack the ball at kick off giving a free shot to the other side?

    If I am furthest away I hang back but otherwise you have to attack the ball don't you?

    Yeah. That's usually the case. Probably just miscommunication. It does happen. Its not always wise to have two players on the same team go for the kick off.

    @cjb_bjc I'm not particularly good (struggling to get out of gold) but if be happy to join in once cross platform is working (I'm on the steam version). You can marvel at my mighty whiffs.

    @superted1974 You can rarely rely on randoms to play how you expect them to play. I understand staying on the line at kick off is largely unnecessary at the higher levels but at the Gold/Plat levels, it is absolutely critical to do so. Too many goals are scored against teams I play on because some twat has fucked off the line to get boost. So frustrating.

    Have they changed the scoring with the recent update?

    Looks that way. You seem to get minor points at random. I'm not sure why I've booted it up again, though. I remember why I uninstalled it. :/

    @The_Goon Yes one of the changes is you now get points for touching the ball! I mean, thats going to stem the ball chasers right?

    And crate openings have now had the roulette wheel removed so it just instantly shows what you've won, possibly to fall in line with the whole loot box/gambling thing going on.

    Toxicity? Wish the reporting measures were more sophisticated. Love being teamed up in the next game with someone who I just reported for calling me the N-word in the previous game.
