Turns out the cars are different.

Speed, boost and accel are the same, but turning circle, power slide and hitboxes are different.

Wow thanks for that Matty, I had no idea! Time to swap to hotshot.

I'd been using X-Devil, so it'll be interesting to see if the extra height makes me any better. I'm hopeful :p

Interesting! I knew about the hitboxes, but I was unaware of the rest. No wonder I feel a bit strange for awhile when I switch cars.

Interesting read, no wonder I feel like I do better in some cars to others. And the turning circle bit would make some difference. Time to get myself set with a single car I think

I'm still sticking with my car regardless... it's big... the bigger it is, the more chance I have of actually making contact with the ball LOL

Had a bit of a play yesterday. Cant get the hang of ball cam. I can see the advantages of it but I just cant do it.

It is a bit addictive Disruptor... add everyone from over in the 2v2 thread
Most of us are up for games fairly often.

Before I got this game, I was having a great time playing through Deus Ex: Human Revolution. Since I started playing Rocket League, all other games have been left untouched.

Addictive is an understatement!

The thing I like is that it's low commitment - as in, I can have just as much fun playing for 20 minutes as I can playing for 2 hours because the matches are so short.

Lucassot was playing/streaming some 4v4 games last night, and I managed to join him for the last 2 games. I think I used magic on this shot from the other end of the field, because no one could touch it! Laughed my ass off! http://www.twitch.tv/lucassott/b/684283198?t=3h06m35s

EDIT: Hmm, it doesn't seem to jump to the time mark as it should.

The low commitment thing is a big bonus for me. And this game is way more fun than that other low commitment time sink: Candy Crush Saga.

:D Had my first practice with storm84 last night and it went pretty smoothly for our first run. My good moments are always outweighed by my utterly stupid ones though, so anything could happen! It'll definitely be an interesting game anyway!

HAHA the time jump worked for me, it went straight to that goal you scored. That was so much fun, did some more tonight as well. Came across 2 guys that joined, their teamwork was insane. They killed us 9 - 1 and it was 2 v 4.. I got some learning to do lol.

Oh good, it doesn't seem to work for me though for unknown reasons. Was definitely a bit of fun, though watching it on your stream was already good fun too! 9-1 is harsh, but it happens at times. I've been on the receiving end of a few defeats like that too, but thankfully also delivered a few like that!

Btw Sot, UT2004 thread over here, looks like a night will be organized soon if you are keen. Also, if you wanted to take part in the 2v2 season with a team-mate (Dvious?) we can add an 8th team without it messing up the current season plans. Adding more than that would, but as we have an odd number and a team sitting out each week, I could easily match you into it and we are still in the first week. Info here
