I've found several people mistakenly referencing the in-game stat instead of steam. Depending on how long they've been playing it's usually wrong.

The first thing I ask in those "I'm champ after 300 hours" posts is "are you looking at the in-game stat?" Most times those 300-hour champs are actually 800 hour champs.

Which is still impressive considering I was a 1100 hour Champ.

sledge98 1 point

Fair enough. I think we will continue to get lower hour champs as the game goes on. The training and resources have gotten so much better for a new player coming in, especially if they have the commitment and drive to get better. I think a recent Reddit Survey put most champs in the 800 to 1000 hour range.

For people who think they don't need advice lol

I'd say people in high plat/low diamond are generally aware of those mechanics/skills, that's how they got to a rank that most would consider to be a little above average in the player base.

When they master those skills and do them consistently they will move higher, until then I think they probably know, they just make mistakes and bad decisions from time to time. Like any other average player.

We have basically seen everything though, I've also seen enough demo goals, double touches and flip resets. They also clutter the sub.

sledge98 1 point

But, but...my demo goals! sob

Or you can go watch a pro stream and see squishy hit his 200th air dribble bump or his 50th flip reset. You’re looking at it the wrong way.

sledge98 1 point

Right. But you're looking at the hive-mind the wrong way. People like to be entertained. "Beginner" type posts do make the front page, but usually only if they are funny or amusing in some way.

Other then that it's like trying to convince regular movie goers to all flock to and support high-school level film projects. The entertainment value and quality to not warrant that type of audience or exposure. You can't change that.

If you wanna get noticed on the internet, you gotta make a mistake :D

sledge98 2 points

Couldn't tell if it was a mistake or done on purpose. I've had people call me that in game before.

Either way it's funny.

Because of your gas mask symbol I think of toxic sludge rather than rocket sledge. ¯\(ツ)

Typically toxic sarcasm but I say sorry if I actually demo on accident lol.

sledge98 3 points

Yes usually I'd say it's sarcastic. I don't apologize for that reason (feels like youre rubbing it in) and because you shouldn't need to apologize for using game mechanics.

I'm a bad Canadian.

u/sledge98 looks like he's lining up for a demo, fake demo new meta?

sledge98 1 point

Maybe. Scare tactics work pretty often by just getting people to jump.

But I think the point here is to move in-front of the ball so you can slow it down and chip it around the opponent.

🤷🏼‍♂️ been in since season 2 and have over 2k hours in the game. There will always be potatos in game and they'll always get triggered by not being able to do fancy stuff.

Drop shot is really fun if you are good, Neo Tokyo was really fun if you are good. 🤷🏼‍♂️

What if you are "really not that good"?

The "salt" joke has been embraced by Psyonix for awhile. Note the salt shaker banner, the Saltie bot...

Ah yes, the Rocket League subreddit. Where mob mentality sets in and you get downvoted for saying anything that goes against the current in our little river of salt.

Also, this is what? 2nd time I see you on reddit and not in-game on the enemy team? One day matchmaking will finally put us on the same team :P

Haha, I'll accept the downvotes, it had to be said.

What are the new rules stopping you?

1000 subs and 4000 hours of watched content in the last 12 months. Trying to get that last one myself right now....

Just post on /r/videos.

You can easily get 1000 hours in one go.

I doubt my video game content will be well received but I guess it's worth a try

No, I was at gold, and it didn't count my gold wins. Windowed mode works now.

Ok that really didn't answer my question about what the reward screen says, but are you now saying windowed mode fixed your problem?

Blazave 1 point

yes

This has been a real eye opening experience for me.

In reality I think this might have been an attempt to make light of the times when people use my name in their posts? Not sure though...

That splitting thing is probably actually the best way to explain it without it taking hours and hours. Nice idea!

sledge98 1 point

Yea, I'm only focusing on maintaining offensive pressure but it looks like it's still going to clock in at close to 10 minutes with the inclusions of both good and bad examples.

It is based on this popular training GIF I made a few months back.

RocketLeagueReddit 2 points

I love that gif sledge, great stuff.

sledge98 1 point

Thanks, I'm excited for people to see the video. I think it's a different take or angle on offensive rotation that will be helpful for both new and old players.

There was a few reasons to implement this. One would be to have "progress" and something to work for, basically a bit of reason or purpose to play the game. Next world be a discouragement against smurfs/boosters as it does take a decent amount of games to get to a reward level.

In the end with the 3 to 4 month seasons even a casual player should have no trouble getting to their reward level.

But not as much as if you were to stay and lose?

sledge98 23 points

Exactly the same amount, but everyone saves time. Then again if it's only one goal difference I'd stay and try to win. I played a whole 2v1 OT once and won. I've played a whole solo standard 2v3 and lost in OT. Both were worth the effort as the game stayed close the whole time. If you stick around in blowouts just to "practice your defense" it is really annoying but of course not against any rules.
