That's not a growth wrote:You bought the same game 4 times?
Nah, PS+ with the PlayStation. Getting it on PC was chip as feck and I wanted to play with the people I regularly play games with on it. Switch I bought on release as I thought it may get use (it hasn't really) and the Xbox I either got cheap or its part of game pass I forget, TBH.
This game is breaking my heart. The problem with it is, I really enjoy it plus, for me at least, I play just as good while listening to music/podcast/radio so it's one of the easiest online games I can play, I don't need a headset or anything (unlike 99% of other online games). I can't get out of gold rank...I can only carry a team so far and the vast majority of gold players are trash. I'll go on a winning streak one win away from platinum and we ALWAYS lose.
The jump from Diamond to Champion is a million times worse because everyone believes they’re supposed to be at the higher ranks and thinks they’re the best player in the team.
I remember when I finally got promoted to Champion I had a winning streak and ended up at Champion III in no time. I had 9/10 wins for the season reward and then went on the worst losing streak of my life to plummet all the way down to Diamond III. It was 4:30 am on a work night and I was just chasing my losses. Never got the reward in the end, staying at 9/10.
That was the point I decided to quit the competitive game. I was showing traits of true addiction.
I was a diamond 2 back when my mates played with me but ive slowly dropped and dropped. This is the longest ive been Gold ever. Biggest problem with Gold rank players is they chase the ball around constantly, they NEVER rotate (which means I'm usually at the back) and they seem to just want to hit the ball cos they can which leads to not only taking ball away when I'm about to score (almost every game, seriously) to scoring an OG just cos they can hit the ball.
Last night, I had 2 shots with 'no keeper' in hit away from me and when I was saving a shot our player hit it back over me into the goal. If I can give any Rocket League player 1 tip its, at Gold/Plat rank, sometimes, just f**king leave the ball if you think you're gonna score an OG, also if no one on opposing team is near it and you touching will mean just hitting it sideways, maybe hold back a second and team mate will have a better angle. I do this all the time and when we score no one notices but its a huge thing.
Yeah the game can be infuriating. I'm not great at it and I do make the wrong decisions but I at least try and play sensibly, rotating with my team and trying to be aware of what shots they're lined up for. So often I'll be hanging back and just watching both teammates chase the ball and get in each others way. Invariably I'll get spammed with 'what a save!' if the other team score

Seems like they're all currently running the XB1X/XB1//PS4 Pro versions so that explains the native v checkboard 4K atm. Back-compat PS4 games cannot take advantage of PS5 features like 120FPS output which explains the lack of that. Sounds like its easier/cheaper to upgrade the Xbox versions so no next gen patch for PS5 announced.
