Rocket League - Final tonight 10pm

Okay, LET'S DO THIS.

Ideally we would find 24 people, which will allow us to have eight teams of three so a small group stage and then a knockout bit. The game is pretty flexible though so if we get less or more than that we'll just see how we can work it in the end.

I know people are already in teams, but I think the fairest and most fun way to do this would be to just allocate people to new teams. That way every team starts off on the same footing so it should hopefully keep every match reasonably close! The way I propose we do this is that everyone rates their skill at the game between 1 and 5, where 1 is the equivalent of a primary school child (HIT BALL HIT BALL HIT BALL OH GOD OWN GOAL AGAIN HIT BALL MUST HIT BALL) and 5 is like the Rocket League version of Dennis Bergkamp. Maybe not quite exagerrated to those extents, but in essence. Be honest!

There were 42 entrants, so there are 14 teams. I make that two groups of four and two groups of three. The bottom two in each group are eliminated, aside from the two teams with the best average goal difference who sneak through into the knockout stage as best runners-up for a total of eight teams. That makes sense, right?

I would encourage you all to come up with better team names. Also, based on peoples claims about their own skill levels, Team 13 will definitely win so no pressure guys! ;)

For now, try and arrange games amongst yourselves. Probably nominate a captain in group chat and discuss potential times amongst the other teams. Next Saturday we'll see where we are and make arrangements to get stuff completed, or just tie games if almost everything's done and we're getting really held up. Like I say, the next tournament will make more sense! I haven't done this "online gaming" thing before so I had no idea what to do for the best. Ah well.
Each team plays each other team, obviously. Games will be best of three. Share good highlights!
If you have a team member who can't play (which is only bradigor at the moment I think) then try and recruit someone new from the Rocket League thread first, and failing that someone from a team in another group or which has been knocked out can play in their place for now.
Off you go then.

One thing - you should have a set night and time for this. From my experience, getting 6 people to all agree to a time is painful.

Set a night and a time and only have people sign up that can go with it.

I think the best thing to do would be to let the teams sort it out amongst themselves once everyone knows their fixture. It'll be easier for those six people to co-ordinate a time than trying to get the whole forum to play at once!

And oh yeah, shit, include PSN IDs in your posts obviously, I should clearly have mentioned that. I don't know how private games work with people between PS4 and Steam, can it be done?

I'm not convinced, it's only 5 minutes or so per match. You could convert it into a poll to see when the majority are about.

The most successful console games played on the forum (FIFA, Battlefield and Destiny) all have fixed time slots.

We might also have to think about defaulting a missing player to an AI too.

In my experience it's unfortunately far from easy! We ran a CoD4 league years ago and it was a total pain arranging 3v3 stuff. It's hard enough arranging 1v1 stuff without fixed slots never mind getting 6 people all available at the same time.

Any other feedback re: this, people? If y'all think a set time would be better we can try and sort that out. I've never really been involved in an online thing like this (mainly as I don't play shooters) so you all will know better than me what works best!

I think that people are trying not to be big headed when giving there ratings, Jamin and Charlie are beasts

Haha, yeah. At the moment according to this thread I'm officially the joint-best Rocket League player on the forum. That is definitely not true :lol:

If anyone's watched the videos I put up in the main thread, those guys have been playing this and its predecessors since 2008 and would be 5s on this scale. I doubt anyone on this forum is a 3 to be honest.

I don't think the scale was set up as 5 being #1 in the world. It would be pointless as everyone would be 1 or 2s

This doesn't make sense, mate. Otherwise people here can be better than 5.

Maybe we could post our stats from the extras menu instead. Or just our win rate. Mine is 0.67, I think.
