In case you missed it, here’s the hot goings-on around the league:
Firstly, RSC is proud to announce a partnership with Ballchasing, the preeminent replay analyzing service for Rocket League. Ballchasing has so many good features to help you better break down and understand what you’re doing right and wrong from game to game. Demos, average speed, boost collection and usage, movement heatmaps, even a 3d rendering of the game watchable through any browser… it’s bananas. If you want to see what they have to offer, check out the collected stats for Season X. If you’re on PC, you can upload your replays directly or give bakkesmod permission to upload for you. Start using this tool and start being more aware of how you play.
Secondly, the Twitch stream has been rebranded to bring double the streamed content every night, so make sure you keep your eyes on the stream schedule to know which channel you want to catch live, RSC Solar or RSC Lunar, but all matches will be available shortly thereafter on the Youtube Feed.
Third, I want to take a moment to shout out shane9b3 for his masterwork on the stream layout. The screen animations and theming during and between games are so on point this season, it’s not even funny.
Lastly, I have a little guilt trip for you. I can’t write you up a full match preview for Monday yet because your team isn’t signed up for the Solar 11:30P slot yet. Think your team’s going to wreck house and you want to show off? Are you confident you have a tight matchup on your hands? Either way, get your Captain to hop in the opponent’s DMs, then ping them in #rsc-official-stream-signups when you’re ready to lock it in. We can’t wait to bring you 4 matches from around the RSC every match night.
This is how the first week goes down. Is your team crushing it or do y’all got some work left in the lab? Trick question, we all have work left to do in the lab.
Are you rostered and want your team to play on stream? The schedule can be found here. Make sure your captain picks a good match and applies for it in #RSC-Official-Stream-Signups on the RSC server. Signups open the week before the scheduled stream at Noon EST. If the main stream is filled, please continue applying. Our stream team still wants to stream your matches, but we need people on the schedule to activate the Lunar Stream, so start bugging your team to get things rolling.
If you’re a Free Agent and you haven’t already, make sure you get in on the FA Discord Server. They’re holding matches and reporting stats all season on Match Days so that the GMs and decision makers have up to date information on everyone’s skills.
That said, let’s take a peek at the matchups on the Solar Stream that will be commentated by baX and strutt (with musah holding things down on stream production). First up at 10:50 PM EST, we have some of the heavy hitters up in Master flexing those skills in this matchup between The Hamburgers and Hot Dogs (I’m dubbing this the Cookout Showmatch)
We’ll be following this up with a showdown in Contender between the Dart Frogs and Samurai at 11:30 PM EST
What a whirlwind of a preseason. There have been too many people on two teams to all fit in the same lobby. Captains aren’t set yet, so we’re firing DMs semi-blindly to the opposing team to set up arrangements for games. Many cuts and team shifts have been made to try to secure the strongest team under salary cap going into Opening Day.
Today is the final dress rehearsal. Teams are down to 4 players. Tonight we test to see if the teams have what it takes to go the distance or if we need to be keeping an eye on all those FAs that were trimmed without having a chance to shine (Pro tip: About half of the teams will have sub-.500 records, so there should be lots of teams searching for overlooked gold).
Good luck. Get that game face on and let’s see what everyone’s made of.
