    Got into a range ked game, finally. We won 5-1 with yours truly scoring a double. Amazing fun.

    Does the word "Rocket" in the title refer to what it makes the console sound like, FFS!!! :evil::evil::evil:

    Apparently an uncapped framerate in the menus is making some consoles verge on exploding. Apparently!

    Finished an 18 game season, started well with winning the first 2 games, but finished the season 4-14 :(

    Yeah I can't get online.

    Remind me again why videogames are exempt from most of the same consumer regulations as everything else?

    It's a shame, it's arguably going to be the busiest next few days the game will get, and they can't sort out the servers enough for the traffic.

    I understand it's a difficult job, but they should at least try to have something working.

    The fan maxes out in the menus for me also. Is this not happening for everyone?.

    There has been a lot of activity on their twitter, plenty of apologies. It's nice to see but it's frustrating because this is all so predictable. We see it all the time, I don't really understand how this server stuff works but could Sony sort out some sort of contingency plan for these launch windows?.

    A quick google gave me a figure of 3.5 million PS+ subscribers. The Rocket League menu indicated 70000 players online. Would 2% of PS+ subscribers trying to get online be beyond expectations?.

    Do you stay in a lobby when you find a match or do you end up back in the menus when the match has finished?.

    You can stay in the match once you're in and just carry on.

    You stay in.
    Just had my first proper match with this after extensive practice in SP. Had a great time.

    So do people have the camera fixed on the ball or free? Trying to figure out the best way to play. Great game btw.

    I use a mixture of both.

    First time playing this today - absolutely loved it. It's just a shitload of fun.

    Just spent around 20 mins attempting to get in a quick match before bed. No luck, but noticed that if you use the right stick in the menu to tilt the camera to a top down view it does reduce the fan speed a little.

    Game has great potential provided that

    1. They fix the online, the AI team mates are dismal.
    2. My PS4 doesn't melt.

    Apparently the matchmaking has been fixed? Lots of Twitter replies seem to suggest that has been the case. They're also looking at the issue around the fans going overboard in the menus but apparently the workaround is to move the camera do it's looking from a top down angle as suggested here earlier.

    The framerate goes berserk when the camera is focused at the crowd. I think rendering the background is somehow putting extreme stress on the console. If you move the camera with the right stick to look down on your car, it should stop the issue altogether.

    This game is brilliant fun. Servers are indeed up. Just had two games that had me laughing out loud. Won one lost one. Scored the winner in overtime!!!!

    Yoooooou what!

    Ended up having a right blast on this last night after the servers came back on. Won a few, lost a few ( including one 13-0 :( )

    Great laugh though. Now I just need to try and get good at it.

    I did some of the tutorials, there's a lot more skill/depth than first appears. You can start to see players online changing play from bees to a honey pot to actually dropping into positions to become more tactical.

    Excellent game but most of all won or lose its so fun.

    Another save! https://youtu.be/I0rU9ArTt3E

    I seem to get two or three games, and then get disconnected. On the plus side, it's fantastic - I've seen a couple of people online who are scarily good as well.

    Does everyone stick to the standard 3v3?

    I tried 4v4 but it was just manic (in a good way).

    I played a couple of games of 4v4 but like you say, it's a bit too much - although I did have my best performance in one, scored a lovely mid-air barrel roll side flick.

    I love those boost rolls.

    I especially love making a particularly well times save with one and seeing 'Epic Save' flash on the screen.

    My disconnect problems are annoying me enough that I am tempted to buy the PC version, I am loving the actual game itself though.
