    My park percentage isn’t helped by the fact that I suck monkey balls for the first two months of every release. I was at like 22 percent. I think what happens is that I don’t get the game time everyone else gets, so I get SO far behind on badges and then struggle. Then after a few months, when I finally get badged up, I kill. Happens every year.

    I watched a game Hail played yesterday, and some of you all tonight. I think Hail's crew is better, but they also seem to take the game more seriously. Like Hails crew is a group of good players made up to win. The dude and Jimbo is a group of friends who are good together and are competitive but mainly play for fun/relaxation/whatever. If that makes sense. Maybe, maybe not.

    BTW- "Ash are you still watching?"
    "no"
    "It must still show you watching"

    That was me. SmokinSmile I heard your dirty stories.

    Yeah I have real life friends I play with too sometimes and it's more casual. Then I have friends I met through 2k that I like to play competitively with.

    See I started off fine like in the 80% win pct but then my IRL friends got the game and I had to play with them. Literally went 0-10 one night with them and dropped about 10% in win %. Now things have balanced out.

    I think there is a level of play, especially with guards, that is above what we are capable of. Like, guys who watch videos and max out their guys in every way, and then master dribble moves and become unstoppable. Fish, you never really learned all the dribble moves, and i know red and jungle and b don’t know them. I feel like with big men there is less of a skill gap in a way, because you don’t have to have such a mastery of dribbling, and there isn’t the same need for shot timing.

    Could be wrong, but I see some guards who I watch play and I’m just left with my jaw a bit dropped. Hail, I get the feeling you play with a few like that, from what you’ve said.

    When I play with comp guys yes. Turn my stream on Scranton_City is the best PG on my friend's list and I'm running 5v5 with him now. He isn't cheesy though.

    If we can play each other cross platform on next gen I'll play with my IRL friends though so it's not cheesy ya know?

    @lurkeraspect84 I can stream a few more games tonight if you want to watch. Won't make it a habit or anything but just for my buddies on here who are interested.

    Hails team was absolutely destroying people. Your mojo rubbed off because I won 7 ranked Rocket League matches in a row after watching.

    I think you’re better at rocket league than I am at this game. You should stream that for people here.

    Yeah, I don’t really know rec stats... I would expect those are good tho, especially the assists... lots of kick outs I assume?:) I don’t have a lot of context. Grab a park picture when you get a chance. Wait, rec and park DO share rep, right?

    I don’t know if they share teammate grade but they share rep yes.

    5v5 is my favorite game mode so I made sure to create a bid that would get 3 playmaking badges because the court is bigger and pass accuracy / break starter is big.

    I haven’t seen any other center average as many rebounds as I do but they could be because I only ever play center.

    If you having watched him play, he's a straight hustle, grinder. Constanly grabbing boards, setting screens, and like you said kicking out. I was yelling at the screen, "why didn't you take that shot" on for his amazing PG to nail the 3 right after.

    On the contrary, post scorer isn’t really a 5v5 build. Every good 5v5 team in pro am will run some sort of finishing glass/lock or paint beast, or shooting glass/lock or paint beast.

    Post-scorers can dominate in park though.

    a guy showed up in the chat and said you're probably the best center on the game.

    IIRC Walker was asked "why do you take so many 3's", his reply was "there are no 4's"

    backback dude is like poetry in motion. I've not seen that on a court since Allen Iverson.

    Haha that was my PG Scranton_City who I legitimately think is the best PG I’ve played with. He likes how well I play within their team and play my role. He knows there are definitely better centers out there (we are playing casual teams when you watch us, not league teams), but thinks im good enough to keep running with them which is a compliment I think. Those guys (Scranton, snags) are really good.

    Yeah, my all blue big feels like he would be worthless in rec... like, you want three point shooting and rebounders, there just isn’t enough space down low for most of the offense to go through the big guy (plus, no matter how good your big is, he still only gets two points, whereas lots of guys can green threes).

    Here’s the thing man, there are things other centers can do that I’ve never tried doing. I’m 100% confident that TheDude is better with dropsteps and post fades.

    But yeah in terms of things you’ve pointed out like making the right passes, rebounding, and defensive rotations, I feel like I’m as good as anyone I’ve played against.

    Right.

    We play a 2-3 zone. If you went to work in the paint in rec, it’d be easy for one of our other 4 to shade down and double and still have time to recover. And most bigs you’re going against in 5v5 are gonna have 26-30 defensive badges. I play with HOF intimidator, HOF rim protector, HOF pogo stick, and sometimes silver-gold Moving Truck. We might stalemate to 50% FG rate but at that point threes are probably better.

    In park anytime you play against those lame teams that play with a rebounding wing at center I bet you can baby the ever loving shit out of them. But they can stop me.
