Rocket League for the Nintendo Switch is now available! This isn't just a weird soccer with flying cars game. Well...it is, but it can be much more than that! There's unlockable content, numerous arenas, modes, training, ranked battle, and cross play with Xbox and PC players! Nintendo exclusive content is also being made available.
NW members are encouraged to team up and have some online fun!
@Zero While this hasn't happened to me, it did happen to my friend during a match. It was funny to watch.
I have heard that sometimes, the Switch has a weaker connection if it's been powered on for long periods of time. When was the last time you powered down your Switch? By which I mean, actually turn it off by holding down the power button for over three seconds and selecting the "turn off" option. If you've just been leaving it in sleep mode for a lengthy period, it may be the cause. Worth a try, at any rate.
Connections seem to be a bit better since switching my wifi to another frequency.
And I finally turned pro!
I sure don't feel like a pro though.
Is there any way to see any overall stats? Overall wins / losses, goals, etc.? I know equipping some items lets you see how many goals you score with them but I'm not sure if there is any other stat tracking...
@Hinph Yeah, this is definitely the sort of game where 60fps plays more smoothly, plus Rocket League has pretty bland graphics that 1080p doesn't really do much. Then again, I'm someone who would rather have 720p/60 than 1080p/30 for pretty much any game.
Yeah, I bought an Xbox One X so I could fully take advantage of my 4K tv, and I find that I still prefer lower resolution modes with higher framerates for many games. I like that this sort of choice is being left up to the player on consoles now though, because there are cases where 30FPS is just fine and the boosted visual effects and resolution are nice to gawk at.
Yeah, there are a few newly added stadiums that have been around on other consoles for some time.
I have been playing in Performance mode for some time now and I'm convinced that they improved the graphics in both modes even without Quality mode being set. For example, when I play in handheld mode on a larger arena I can actually see whats going on, on the other side of the field.
@Mop it up Cross platform party functionality is supposed to come out later this year.
Anyone notice they're getting sent into matches already in progress more often now? I could be wrong but it felt like that was rare before, whereas now it happens to me first match almost every time I log on.
If the score is close I'm fine with it, but if it's already a blowout (regardless of what side I'm on) it's like... nah. Not interested.
@Zero You setup a bracket and then you all play live. I think the only set time is when the entire bracket starts. You can have any mode play as long as the needed parties are present. You can even make it private.
