Clearly Goldeneye is the best multiplayer game ever made but Rocket League is up there.

Nah. Goldeneye might be the most revolutionary, but Perfect Dark immediately improved upon it on the same console.

Down 3 divisions in one night. Said this multiple times but at the point it isn't fun anymore. An absurdly toxic community doesn't help.

In many ways, the worst thing to happen to an online multiplayer game is for it to become popular. They always end up filled with abusive man-children. I still play this fairly often, but a good 50% of the time, in my first or second game of the day I end up teamed up with someone who starts flaming people on their own team for missing the ball, and I just stop playing.

Yep. 1-0 after a few seconds and the flaming starts, it's pointless.

It's just a game, man. 

Fwiw SARPBC had plenty of dicks who would give up or get mad at the slightest error, so I don't think the popularity thing is really true. 

Plus there's a report button, if people are being really mean to you and/or giving up.

I do this all the time.

I mostly play 2v2, but as soon as my teammate flames me I just stop playing. I'll chat to tell him why and then just drive around for the rest of the time doing nothing.

 

Probably makes no difference, but in my head he might think twice the next time he does it.

Just had a fantastic game. We were 2-0 down, we'd made 3 saves each, and had no shots when they got their second. My team mate was chilled as hell, we were both throwing out compliments on the saves, and Sorrys/No problems on the goals.

We won 3-2 (my hattrick :D) with us only having 3 shots (all in the last minute), and I made 4 saves, he made 6. I'm chalking this down to the power of positivity. The other team were so pissed. :P

Where are people in the new ranks? I'm hovering around Gold 2, which feels about right, occasionally the best player, occasionally the worst, and there's rarely a complete stomping. I went on a winning streak last night and ended up in Diamond. It was very, very clear that I didn't belong there. :P

I'm absolutely hopeless at this game but i love it anyway. Has there ever been/ could there be a VillaTalk rocketleague team? I'm up for any game format anytime, if anyone's interested in playing and helping me improve from hopeless to half decent

If you're on PS4 a group of us play pretty regularly.

@villarule123, @StefanAVFC and @hogso are all really good.

I'm shit but I join in :D

We had a 2v2 tourney but no one ever played games.

Me, @Stevo985 and @villarule123 have played 3s for a couple of years, with @hogso and @troon_villan occasionally joining.

However, my enthusiasm is dying on its arse lately.

Yep, I was bored after one game last night.
I'm out of my depth when I play with you guys as well now which doesn't help.

We all struggled last night to be honest. I miss our mutator 2v2 games :D

I am rusty as heck now, generally only play when I see a new update is out, or to play a single game of whatever match type online to keep my ranking.

My enthusiasm for the game will never falter though. It seems crazy to think now, but I played SARPBC most days for years, which compared to RL was properly barebones. I'm confident I could go on playing RL for a decade, if not as consistently.

ahem..

I played today 2v2 and got in the gold 3 category, playing with randoms and fell into gold 2 :( 

It's great for a 30 min blast.  Quite liked the drop-out game mode, but only played that twice.

I still love it, I've got a lot worse on the PS4 version after playing the PC though. It's hard to explain, but it's a totally different game. I hate being in Gold I though, the community is terrible until you reach a higher level and people play properly. 

I think I'll still be playing in 2 years time.

Uninstalled it.

Finding myself playing it for the sake of playing it, when I wasn't enjoying it in the slightest. Toxic community (had a guy play against me because I refused to forfeit at 2-0 down), felt I'd hit a ceiling and was getting worse every game. (missing aerials and shots I was making a year ago easily)

I may get it again on my laptop and start again, but I feel I need a huge break from it, and every time I say that, I end up playing it and getting annoyed over the same shit again.
