    I've seen quite a few posts about Rocket League around here. So I was thinking, why not make a little GBAtemp tournament? If we get enough people there could be brackets where we all face each other in teams and it could be quite fun. And PC and PS4 are cross play so console players can be included too! And heck, if we get enough people to join in, I'll buy a $5-10 PSN/Steam card for the winner of it all. Whatdya think?

    What about servers? Rocket league sucks to play at high ping. NA East is just about ok for EU (90-110ish ping), west would be awful (At least 140 from EU). Same deal the otherway, EU would be awful for anyone not East Coast NA.

    No.

    EDIT: But really, I wish I played Rocket League a lot more, cuz I've probably put maybe...45 minutes into it before I got bored so I'd be absolutely terrible at this.

    I suppose server locations would have to be a compromise between all the players? :unsure: I dunno. Maybe have test matches between the people to make sure the ping is okay, or try to keep the initial brackets between the same territories? I didn't put much thought into the idea yet, so I'm open to suggestions as to how to make it tolerable.

    git gud

    I wouldn't be available until the middle of January anyways so that gives a little time to put practice in! I've seen people play for a few hours and improve dramatically. Of course most of us here aren't veterans (I'm just a measly pro level) so it's all for fun!

    I don't have this game, so sorry but i cannot participate. Maybe when it appears on playstation plus instant game collection. :ninja:

    Unless someone willing to gift it to me...:rolleyes: *inserts christmas theme here*

    Speaking of remote control race cars, what about trackmania, no hype train for that game?:creep:

    It's already been on plus.


    I think for EU->NA, the compromise seems to be East servers. Seems to be what is used whenever I've watched any cross region tournaments (between NA-EU, the two largest playerbases). Ok for west coast, and tolerable for EU. For an EU-> an exclusivly east coast team match, someone will have to bite the bullet and have higher ping :).


    Anyway, I suppose details can be worked later.

    I'd play, I'm always up for rocket league.

    Sales are different.

    The instant game collection is the same between regions. Rocket league was given away when the game launched back in July last year.

    I'd be keen. I haven't played properly in months but this would be fun.

    Now that I've got some free time, perhaps we can all try to work out a time that's available, or how a hypothetical casual tournament would go. I tagged anyone here who plays the game/showed interest in the thread. I assume we would all do 1v1, matchups determined by location initially, to reduce lag, and then go from there? Or perhaps we could do a doubles competition if that's preferred?

    Doubles sound more fun, imo.
    I'm free after 12PM PST (mostly).

    While doubles does sound more fun, how would teams be decided fairly? Some players playstyles may differ from the other if chosen randomly, and times would be even harder to sort out as there is the possibility for 4 differing timezones. All these problems are avoided by running 1v1s.

    Yeah, that's what I thought. It's not too inherently serious a competition, though, :P so we could just throw everyone together regardless of playstyle for insane hijinks?
