All u/SunlessKhan 's subscribers are playing at the same time!

Key thing is it's skill based. No levels, no pay to win. You get good by putting in the time but it's fun while you learn.

If you can find a friend that wants to get the game too you'll have a great time learning together! It's cheap enough you can just by then a copy.

Also all DLC is cosmetic so you don't need anything but the base game.

I’d consider gold to be below average. I said in a different reply that I mastered the goalie training and I just play very defensively. I didn’t score much but I didn’t ball chase which compensated for my lack of attacking ability. But you can’t lose if you don’t get scored on. So yeah, that’s how I got there and how I got any rank really, defence is key!

Currently gold 2/3 is average according to player distribution released by Psyonix. Back in 2016 I believe it was even lower.

Yea defense is the key to getting through the low ranks alive.

I’d love to see that distribution where can I find it?

I'm on mobile, I'll try to get it to you later if you don't find it before then.

You're MMR gains and losses are accelerated for the first 20 to 30 matches(including placements) especially if you haven't played that play list very much in the last few seasons.

It's designed to quickly get you to the rank you belong though sometimes it will overshoot hard. The next few weeks will decide if you can maintain it.

I complain when I'm going supersonic and bump someone and they just move rather than die

There's rules for a demo, and being supersonic isnt the only one.

What would you know? Pfft. /s

Please use Google. It's a good for answering questions like this.

Mixed feelings.

Make them predictable, then I will know where you're going to spawn. Make them selectable, I probably know which side you're going to select.

I understand the ideas behind it and people have made some good points for and against. I think it's not worth changing this long after release but I won't care if it were to happen.

I have plans for a video about not getting scammed that will cover some of the major ones. Got some really good examples when I was trying to buy a BMD with keys recently.

Do you think it will help people? In my experience people who get scammed by this sites are very inactive on youtube/reddit, maybe ask Psyonix to feature your Video on the News? Would be great!

Well Psyonix has "community" posts on their site where they highlight certain training packs and tutorials. So if they mentioned the video there to it might help. I guess we'll see.

Have you ever had any plays with this many demos/bumps in so short a time?

A new dribbling challenge emerges!

14 points · 3 days ago

I've seen this with freestylers complaining about people "defending" too hard. (This was here on the sub)

Recently I encountered it with my post that had me demoing someone just before he set up the ceiling shot. Someone basically said I should "let people take shots like that in casual and not worry about it because it doesn't affect my rank."

My response:

This is the typical "don't be a try hard in casual" debate. I've already made my points about this in my "mental attitudes" video with SunlessKhan.

It's true that everyone can play by their own rules in casual. That's the beauty of it. You can also leave if you don't like something that's happening or not happening in the game. But expecting others to conform to those rules is crazy talk and I don't see how you're "helping" me by requesting I do that.

Let's flip things here: you know I think it's not that difficult to slow down or stay still so I can demo you. You don't need to be jumping me. It's casual man, me blowing you up and then scoring is not going to affect your rank. All this sweating and not wanting to be demo'd is meant for ranked. Just drive slow and don't worry.

Alright the same statements have been reversed, does it seem reasonable that I should expect that from my casual opponents?

I found this video from JohnnyBoi very useful. https://youtu.be/pv4-J0Y42xc

The fact that you call it "Reddit-Chan" tells me you're not worthy.

If that's you're thing, that's you're thing. I'd love to see one with you tackling them out of the air right before they got their essential hit, that'd be something a little more fresh imo.

Original Poster3 points · 4 days ago

That would be impressive. Personally I'd like to get an actual ceiling demo (this was really close)

To date this is probably my best "out of the air demo"

A champ trying a new moved called "hitting someone while they attempt a relatively difficult shot"? Not really biting that one.

I'm on the lookout for all new demo opportunities.

For me the car handles really differently on my switch, haven't won a single game in gold, normally around low champ.

LOL gold is actually going to be champ on switch. The banners foretold it! All these champ PC players playing each other at gold, forever stuck.

I'm going to be starting on the switch soon, but I'll be with my 6 year old so I don't expect much. See you out there!

Can we have a moment of silence for your teammates?

The only thing "unique" about it is the backflip. And backflips aren't special anymore. They used to be... like in Season 1.

3 points · 5 days ago

The amount of backflips I do make me feel like I'm special.

Also until the game settles on "where you belong" your MMR gains and losses will be large. So for the next 20 to 30 games if you get a lot of wins you'll move up quicker then someone who has been in Silver for awhile and goes on the same streak.

Yea I think we're going to give you a D and maybe recommend you repeat the course.

Focus on the things you can control. Turn off chat. Unfortunately at the rank of an average player (you) there will be a little more toxicity. If you don't want to completly mute chat at least get rid of opponent chat, there's no reason you ever need to read anything from your opponents.

As for me? I don't find it to be too bad at all. Is there some? Yes? Can it ever be eliminated? No.

If even a simple quick chat spam is too much for you (not you in particular) there is tools in place to rectify that. You can't change the world, but you can change how you experience it.
