For anyone new to the game, I highly recommend watching Gibbs’ series ‘playing with potatoes’ on YouTube. He gives a ton of useful tips for people without insane mechanical/aerial skills to improve and get your rank up.

My mate was telling me about the trading part last night. I assume it's not possible on the Switch yet as the 'E-sports live' link doesn't work, at least not yet. It says something like 'your browser does not currently support this'. Hopefully 'currently' is the key word there. Maybe they know something we don't and a browser is on the way. Or at least a web page that will only work for RL. Is trading done through that E-sports website though or is it elsewhere within the game?

@Jaredfrogman Ahh ok I'll have to see about finding some trades with Switch users. And I'll go ahead and check out that channel you suggested as well thanks.

Having just seen some videos of this game, how exactly is it different from Blast Ball, other than being in a car instead of a suit of armor? The two games look extremely similar, except this is universally exalted and Blast Ball seems to be mostly derided.

1. Blastball gameplay is incredibly stagnant, you're really standing there both shooting the ball hoping at some point in time it moves where you want it. Rocket League has the ball going from side to side constantly, it's more constant action oriented.

2. The arenas in blastball are terribly small, which is one of the reasons the ball really has no movement. Everyone is condensed into a small section of the map at all times, while Rocket League allows you to spread out and incorporate strategy into the game.

Thanks for recommending that channel. Great staff there to learn for noobs like myself. That potato guy have skills indeed.

At a glance they may look extremely similar, but they couldn't be more different.

Blast ball was just... not fun. Even if it was full HD with a proper controller, it was way too slow and hard to move the ball and just pretty much dull, where as Rocket League is exhilarating. You're flying in at 90 miles an hour in these huge arenas, hitting the ball super fast, it's bouncing around everywhere, you've got these crazy moves where you can boost or you can jump and then when you're in the air you can jump again to do a forward flip or side barrel roll, you can even jump, then tilt your car up and boost, and literally fly across the entire arena. It's just nonstop heart pounding action, insanely addictive with the tightest mechanics you've ever seen.

You'd just have to play it. There's a reason so many people love this game to death. My coworker actually bought a Switch just for this game. And he already had the game, he just loved it so much he wanted it portably. So the appeal of simply having this $20 game portably sold an entire $300 console. That speaks volumes.

@Joeynator3000 There's a difficulty setting for bots when you create the exhibition match or season.

I know, wished they would let you set the difficulty of each team instead. I thought "Rookie" would let me have an easy time while I get used to everything, instead I'm losing constantly because my AI team keeps hitting the ball into our own goal. lol

Love this game! I had it originally on PS4 with some of the add ons. Not sure which ones I want to get on the switch.

RPG, FPS, Adventure,Action...oh I like 'em all!

@OorWullie trading is done with a player in your party. When you click their name in the main menu, there’s an option to trade.

Ok so I am thinking of buying this on the Switch . I have it on PS4 since it was free but I don't mind paying for it to help support the devs of this great game. Just have a few questions before I buy it.

1) Is all the DLC included in the Switch version or do I have to buy it? The PS4 had a few DLC packs including a few cars like the DeLorene from BttF and the Batmobile.

2) My friend has this on Xbox One (he doesn't plan on getting a Switch anytime soon) and I know it's cross platform so can I play with him suspificly or does it just match you with random Xbox and PC players?

3) For two players on the same Switch system can each person use one of the joy cons or do I have to buy another controller?

@Tasuki I can't remember who, but if you read back through this thread or the review comments, there's a user who's very happy because they can finally play this with their xbox-owning mate on the other side of the world, so I'm guessing you can find each other easily enough cross-platform.

I've just held an Ignored Users amnesty on my account. 20+ users are back in the game with an extra life - make it count :)

@Tasuki wait, PS4 has DLC included in the game? I have it with PS+ and have to pay for those ones. Unless it was later included with the game?
Well, to answer your questions
1. I do believe that all DLC needs to be purchased separate from the game. Batmobile and Delorean are paid DLC for example.
2. Currently I think it is only private matches, but I think I heard that parties will be added in the future. You can at least do private matches though
3. You can play with just the joy-cons for two players

Yeah there is a group making mode which I believe allows you to enter a username from any console. I could be wrong though.

And after just looking at the trailer people thought that Arms was Wii Sports boxing with a new coat of paint. Just because something looks similar doesn't mean it plays the same.
