Yeah that's what i meant. compared to the 80+ the previous ranks got changed it's a drop in the bucket.

No Psyonix, the matchmaking is totally fine... by trutch70 in RocketLeague

High gc queue time is insanely long for those guys so tgeyvwill end up pairing down to find a match. It happens.

Everything up to diamond 3 got a hand job. Champ+ didn't really change much.

How do rotation works in 2s? by faiq57 in RocketLeague

[–]lohkeytx 1 point2 points  (0 children)

As a basic mental picture. Picture the pitch in 9 squares 3x3. At no point in time should you be in the same square as your teammate. If on offense personally I am never in front of my partner who has the balls square.

Generally want to be roughly 1 square away throughout the flow of play. Whether that be directly behind, to the side or a diagonal.

I tend to favor a back diagonal positionas it let's me be somewhat defensive but can still close in quick.

2s is really punishing on bad decisions to commit to a ball/pass I'd it turns into both you and teammate balls deep in their end.

YOU CAN TURN OFF THE STAT NOTIFICATIONS FOR CENTER BALL AND ALL THE OTHERS IN THE OPTIONS

USWest server. All 5 of us were on the west coast. Why? by LongstrideBaduk in RocketLeague

[–]lohkeytx 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'm in Texas and my avg ping on us-w servers is 60. Doubt it'd be 130 coming the other way. What matters is where the 12 ping dude is. I've played on us-e with an East coast friend and one from Canada. Canada will have lowest ping.

Stuck in diamond2/3 by kot7k in RocketLeague

If you want we could play a bit and I could offer any insight. I primarily play 3s but can do either. I'm generally champ 2 but haven't played much ranked passed getting my champ rewards

What was so good about Squishy's ceiling shot goal? by ThaiMylace in RocketLeague

[–]lohkeytx 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I think the fact that he faked 1 defender and flicking it over another while upside down off the ceiling. He basically weaves defenders. That's just insane.

Better than any silly freestyle or whatever you see happen in ranked vs a bunch of trash cans compared to who he did that against

How do I get better? by DaraghJohn in RocketLeague

[–]lohkeytx 0 points1 point  (0 children)

you dont need to be good at wall/ceiling shots

and if you were 'guitar consistent' at clearing and shooting you wouldn't be plat 2/3. Not to be an ass but you are probably overestimating your ablities (we all do it to some extent). consistency, rotation, decision making, and positioning are what holds people back from basically diamond on up... mainly champ on up but i'll throw diamond in there too.

Anyone got RLCS wheels yet? by Bee-Cat in RocketLeague

[–]lohkeytx 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Last RLCS took quite a while for the wheels to come out. Like iirc a major patch later or something. Dont sit on your thumbs waiting, it'll come.

[–]lohkeytx 0 points1 point  (0 children)

focused practice on applicable things.

i.e. not air dribbles, ceiling shots, or other gimmicky things. While useful they aren't needed.

Consistency is key. Consistently putting shots on goal where you want them. But also knowing when the bad time to hit the ball at the goal is. Knowing the diff between a hit/clear and a QUALITY hit/clear as they are quite different. Improving positioning, reading the play, when to commit (especially in the air), etc.

Diamond not an achievement anymore?? by sledgehammer107 in RocketLeague

[–]lohkeytx 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yah and now I hate having diamond 2s and sometimes d3 on my team because you just don't know now. Even a lot of champ 1s just hit a small win streak after getting bumped up aren't that good.

Solo q sucks now

[–]lohkeytx 0 points1 point  (0 children)
