    If you miss a bit of hax then come the fuck on. We've got a group of about 8 regulars, could always do with more.

    In theory, this is cross platform (from what I can see online: https://www.reddit.com/r/RocketLeagu...rm_play_ps4pc/)

    So it looks like it might be possible to play PS4 vs. PC etc., but in a private room

    My understanding is that cross-platform chums cannot join the same groups to have all-TTH bants.

    There is cross-platform play but not cross-platform lobby functionality. Apparently it's difficult since one is on PSN (or whatever the playstation platform is) and the other on steam.

    But anyway, for the amount it costs it's so worth it on PC. It's a brilliant game and even better with The Third Hard.

    I'm guessing you two didn't read the Reddit.

    I was going to say the same until I read a comment from Mr. Lovette:

    PS4 to PC is crossplatform in all modes. You can't create a party however across platforms. To play with friends on the other platform you need to create a private match with name/password.
    A party like we do is no go but setting up a private match is.

    I wonder if you can keep hitting rematch though or if you have to keep setting up a new private match.

    Who plays it on PS4 then?

    They'll have to load up Teamspeak too, or deal with a barrage of 'ez game dis' in chat.

    Is anyone not from the UK involved? I'm keen but I'd imagine lag would be horrendous.

    I enjoyed Haxball more, but this is good fun too. There are also Teamspeak bantz so if that does not convince you I don't know what would.

    Whether it's as good as Hax or not is irrelevant really as Haxball is dead, so it's this or nothing.

    If you're after something similar and a top top laugh with the lads then join in.

    I'll play if anything happens. I haven't played at all since the first TTH games so I'll be shit, but that's part of the fun I guess.

    If rocket-powered cars playing football doesn't sound at least a bit enticing then you may be beyond help.

    What I meant was, if anything happens that allows me to join in on PS4. I assumed you guys were playing on PC, but if I'm wrong then great.

    Honestly, there's a lot less passing/teamwork/tactics than there was in haxball. It's more just big noisy driving around clusterfuck where the odd bits of individual skill wins.

    It's really the teamspeak bants that make it enjoyable.

    There is passing/teamwork/tactics in RL, but you have to have the 'basics' well and truly down first. The basics are just bloody hard.

    If you watch some of the professional teams play it's pretty incredible.

    That's a great article. The game definitely gets better the more you play it and the more you put into actively improving.

    EDIT: Also watching some of the pros stream and being reminded of what is possible is great motivation.

    I tend to not boost for aerials too much out of fear of cocking up and costing us a goal (which is working well given some of the stunning OGs I've scored in the last few sessions) but at the same time fully aware you need to take the risk to get any better at it.

    We don't play ranked so I just tend to fly for everything as practice. I'm more careful in ranked games, but still at the end of the day you won't raise ranking without getting better and you won't get better without trying things.

    Our biggest problem as a group is definitely positioning and...lack of restraint I guess. We quite often have all three people in one corner going for the same ball.

    I'm trying to make a point more often of not going for the same ball as somebody else is unless there's good reason to do so.

    On your PC on the internet connection which can't even run Haxball?

    I am a bit curious to hear what you sound like though.

    I still don't know whether I prefer that you didn't assist any of my nine goals, that I had more goals than shots or that I somehow got a save despite spending the entire game in their half.

    Ian hacked the game.

    I was blatantly assisting his goals and got nothing for it.
