    Yeah, on Park it is really, really rare to meet a guy at the three (you know what I mean) who can stop the pure blue guy. An all red BIG big can, but not always... then it comes down to skill vs skill, and if he is too overeager and jumping early and shit, I’ll eat him up (although there are sometimes those games were open layups just miss because of HoF intimidator, of course).

    But yeah, anyone under seven feet is in trouble, and those rebounding wings... well, I hate sitting in the corner and guarding them, but they literally cannot guard me in response, so it comes down to an easy two points for us each time, and then they have to score every time against our guards, which isn’t easy to do.

    Good. Make those MFers pay. I hate guarding them because they just stand outside so none of my rim protection is useful. Then on the other end they get enough defense to stop. At least you get that trade off.

    I'm down if anyone wants to watch. I usually play pretty late tho. I'll post ITT if I stream.

    Yep finally cross plat. Idk about elite but I'd say I'm way above average. I'm two ranks away from the top rank (which is the top 500 players in the world). I'm always up for playing Rocket League though. GT is Jnunn if you're on Xbox. If you're on PlayStation or PC lmk and I'll give you my RL ID # to add.

    The Regionals just started on Twitch if anyone wants to check out the best of the best playing for 150K.

    It's a game you have to grind to be good at. If I don't play for a few weeks I'm terrible (compared to how I usually play). The pace is so fast that if you take time off it feels like everyone else is going a million MPH.

    I can’t for the life of me hit areal shots or fly / float with any sort of control at all.

    Idk how to describe it. Imagine being drunk and trying to balance on one leg. That’s the lack of control I feel whenever I jump or fly or float.

    Takes a lot of practice and repetition. Once you know positioning and rotation it's all about getting good mechanically. My mechanics are behind and that's what's holding me back from getting max rank. If i had better control in the air and a little bit quicker reaction time I would be 100x better. If only I were younger lol. I still have fun but the competitive side of me wishes this game would've came out 10 years ago so I could try to compete.

    Somebody give me a new Netflix show please. I'm looking for something fantasy like Witcher, Game of Thrones, LOTR.... A show like that.

    Is Umbrella Academy any good?

    Not netflix but you can stream The Mandalorian for free on watchseries.

    Ditto Vikings and Black Sailes.


    I'm a huge Game of Thrones and LOTR fan and Vikings and Black Sails are the two shows I've seen that come closest to that style of fantasy/period/war.

    Nah, my buddy I usually play with works tonight. Is it tonight? Pros usually enter those and take all the money lol.

    Forgot about that show. Can't remember if I finished season 2 or not. I'll watch it soon though.

    Only 4 of those I know are CJCJ, Kami, drippay, and torsos. None are pro but they're like right below pro level. That has to be some semi-pro league. All 4 are really good players. I don't know any of the others though so couldn't tell you how they stack up.

    Lol 3 of the 4. Good instincts. A couple of them have played in pro league before but they got relegated (didn't make it back in). Can't remember if they're EU players or Aussies.

    I just watched A Quiet Place for the first time the other night on Hulu. Pretty good flick. I guess the second one is scheduled to come out sometime this year.

    Did you watch it with subtitles or none? I screwed up and watched it without any so I was stuck trying to lip-read the entire movie.

    I watched it on a streaming website and their version didn't have them. It was still interesting without but I need to rewatch it with subtitles tho.

    I'm amazed by Hot Ones franchise. Celebs turn themselves out for a plug, and the game show of pain.

    Hot Ones vs Fear Factor. Pain over phobias ot just grossness.
