Most of the time it's making a succession of really minute bounces, and while it works for the most part, it's making advanced flicks not work for me.

When I get the ball to settle I can control my flicks pretty well it seems, even pretty good at the 180 flicks shown on Reddit a few days ago, those are so satisfying and get some great angles. But when it's bouncing repeatedly the take off of the first jump is pushing the ball away from me leaving it too far for the flick. Any advice on keeping the bouncing to a minimum?

Oops, a bit late.

I know this might be shit advice, but...play more :x

Anyone can flick once it settles. You have to get a feel for catching it in a way that is both safe from attack and allows you to control it very well. I'm not the best at it yet and it shows.

Just gotta get a feel for catching it in various situations into instant flicks. Having control of it very fast is important for that, since a good opponents going to run you through the second they see you aren't able to flick it on a dime.

Tbh the advice is pretty solid. You're right about needing to be able to Insta flick. While my roof control has increased in training, those are really rare or hard to use in 3s. I've found with a bit of practice that scooping and flicking it from a quick carve and boost seems to be the way in 3s. Getting better at it, but sometimes nerves get me and I either correct without need causing a bounce or start it too fast to ever get it beyond the hood.

Still, This bit of training has paid off. I've balled and juked GC's a few times in the last few days so my overall control has rocketed that is to it.

The downside is while learning I've made a new way to whiff. Catching the dribble wrong and already having ballcam off then flailing to try get the aerial I didn't mean to set up.

Since our launch in July 2015, Rocket League has already surpassed more than 30 million players and 1.25 billion online matches -- and it's just the beginning! As announced earlier today at the Tencent UP 2017 event, Psyonix and Tencent Games have teamed up to bring Rocket League to Chinese players on PC!

With the new release, there will also be changes to the Chinese version of Rocket League to better suit the expectations of that community. Though the core gameplay experience will remain unchanged, our traditional framework will be replaced with a new streamlined free-to-play system. In keeping with Rocket League traditions, however, the Chinese free-to-play version will not follow a "pay-to-win" formula, and will instead hold true to our "community first" mantra, where skill and teamwork are your most important attributes.

As development progresses, we will continue to work hard with our partners at Tencent Games to ensure quality and consistency for Rocket League in China. You can learn more about our new alliance at rl.qq.com, where you can find additional information in the coming months on topics like playability, esports, and (of course) a release date.

Finally, to our friends who are already playing Rocket League in China -- Don’t worry! Though new players will no longer be able to purchase the existing version of the game on Steam from this point forward, the existing community will still have access to the game you paid for in addition to all other currently-available features.

Welcome to the family!

They are going to make so much money.

I find this kind of ironic, since the subreddit pokes so much fun at the idea of pricesheets yet everyones prices are stunningly on point for people who don't use pricesheets. You're bang on about using it as a guideline, I just find the little back on forth on them at the sub rather amusing.

Yeah it's silly. I get how it makes trading a pain in the ass because people won't budge but well neither do most of the people complaining I'm sure lol.

Exactly, it's just one huge circle of hypocrisy.

Tough call. If you're ok with spending the price of 5 keys on it just trade for it I guess. You could come up in the green by opening crates or get 5 rares and no endo. If it's all you really want I'd trade. That said, Endo price has got to fall sooner or later, there's really no reason for it to hold the price the way it has.

Right now the price is still falling so I'd personally wait it out and buy it lower unless you really want it in your inventory.

Trade the turbos for nearly enough keys for an endo alone

Outside of first week it's usually not worth opening crates. The argument can be made for things like 20xx when it was ~80k that you might as well open 100 crates and try for it because at worst case youll have a ton of items worth a lot but outside of instances where your drop rate is similar to the actual cost of outright buying it, ehhh.

I'm happy I sold my endo for 8k, got to open a few more crates and can rebuy for 3k in a couple weeks.
Legit don't buy import cars you don't plan to immediately use if they're above $1.

Well we don't know how different their model is going to be but i always figured when sales drop off RL would probably go free to play but since it never falls out of the top ten sellers on steam that would just be throwing away free money for them.

I don't have problems finding Xbox players aside from Solo Standard.. that playlist usually throws me into a match with PC players.

Also, is this game just that more popular on the East coast? I'm in California but if I search in West and East, 90% of the time it puts me in an East coast server. My ping ranges from 80 - 110... which is noticeable compared to being in the teens on West. So for the most part I disabled East and well it takes longer to find a match but at least I don't experience weird hitches.

Guys the only achievement that is locked for me on the Xbox one is the stocked achievement. Anybody else have issues with this? Any solutions? So far only thing I read to try was delete my save from local and the cloud and then proceed with a new local save to start getting items again but I'm afraid I will lose my profile level, replays and holiday items.

Playing with PC players is absolutely no fun.

They're on a different level of play than console players.

All they do is fly all over the place, making insane shots and saves that consoles players have no way to compete with.

It's like playing against cheaters. I hate it.

AI? That sounds a lot like you're playing casual. Start playing ranked like a real man.

(Seriously though, the match quality is so much higher in ranked.)

This stuff is really beyond a joke at this point. I've not had time to play much during the week and when I finally get a chance lo and behold the servers are down at the weekend again. I've already abandoned my plan for a night of RL and opted for PUBG instead, couple weeks back it was OW. The server issues are actually starting to bring my play time down significantly.

So DAMN tired of all the server issues at this point. I bought in to their talk about growing pains at first, but at this point it's just incompetence and shitty service delivery.

I've bought a lot of DLC and keys just to support Psyonix for their amazing game. But i will not buy anything more until theese server issues are resolved completely.

Doesn't help that Playerunknowns Battlegrounds servers are solid despite being such a new and crazy successful game. And here we are two fucking years after the release of Rocket League and the servers are down yet again. No other big online game have the issues RL has been having this year.

I'm an infrequent-but-regular. Generally at this point I play those fridays or saturdays (evening EU) when I have some me-time and beers. Unfortunately, last several instances of those times have sadly been as now: excitedly sit back and open up the game and bounce off server error messages. Probably just unlucky timing on my part but still, bit of a glummer.
