The TSG BYOT Rocket league Challenge

After completing a successful pre-season of Rocket League, with the Wasteland Devils taking the honours, The Screwed Gamers hosted a one night comp (TSG Bring Your Own Team – BYOT Challenge), featuring a round robin format, followed by knockout finals. With five teams entered, we saw 5 rounds played with each team playing four matches. To ensure the night didn’t drag on too long, match length was set to the standard 5 minutes, unlike the 10min games played during the pre-season. Majority of the players in each team had competed…

Fight heats up at the freezing Bernese Alps

While the temperature was sub-zero at the Bernese Alps Stadtplatz circuit, the battle for the CANZ V8 Supercar title ignited! With a number of drivers missing, this also opened up the opportunities for the rest of the field to gain some valuable points. The round saw two different winners of which Caderz was neither. The Aus-Gear driver was leading the championship title comfortably heading into the round and leaves in second place behind MRN3Drifter. Struggling for pace he would normally find, Caderz also suffered damage on the first lap in…

A look at week two:

Week two of the TSG Rocket League pre-season saw the Titans missing so only half the matches were played. But we have learned quite a lot from them. Chaos has come to the fore now that super sub xxLLOYDYxx has been replaced by newcomer The Doc. His value has risen quickly and now sits at the top of the goal scoring leaderboard. Hypershadow19 compliments Chaos nicely, making the Devils attack a devastating weapon. The Sharks may rue what could have been, being defeated 8-4 by the Devils in the first…

Smashing the Stats!

Thanks to the super cool system behind the Rocket League competition, we can take a look at all the latest stats from the first week and see what they are telling us so far: Predictions are exactly that, as expectations around player performances have thrown up a few surprises. Chaos 7h30ry hasn’t even made the top five so far for player value rankings, while super sub xLLOYDYxx sits in second behind the Titans FuriousWolf. Scav3nger is just behind z00lu after just two matches. Defence can minimise the damage as shown…

5 talking points from week one:

The Super Sub Even though we knew the Wasteland Devils would be a strong team, they were further bolstered by xLLOYDYxx as their sub, after The Doc was ruled out of the side for personal reasons. xLLOYDYxx racked up 7 goals in his two matches and no doubt we will see more of him in the future.   2v2 A No Go Zone Unfortunately an update to Rocket League caught a number of players off guard, with True Zola unable to make it for any matches alongside his Beckwith Angels…

Driver Profile: CrashCaderz

So Caderz, you are an experienced campaigner with a lot of speed, yet you are still chasing a Championship title in a main series….what do you think is needed in order to achieve this milestone? Yes, this is one of the boxes that haven’t been ticked for me. I’ve been playing second fiddle for the last few championships, but I think this year, is the year for me where I can win a main series title. With BretleyS not competing this year, it opens the door for me and others to…
