Silver represent.

I only play about a dozen or so games of twos a week so that’s probably a fair assessment but it’s definitely a hard rank to get out of. So many bog average players that almost all of my wins are my carries hitting hat tricks (even a double the other day) but for every few wins that I move up there will a few losses to keep me there. I’m not too fussed though except for when I get paired with somebody completely ordinary. It’s usually just something I play to wind down with before bed.

I fluctuate between gold two and three. I’ve been in platinum a couple of times and get wiped off the floor pretty quick. Far above my skill level.

Teamed up with a random last and reeled off ~20-25 straight wins in doubles. Was absolutely ridiculous. Went from low Gold 2 up to Plat :D

Just got called a smurf for the first time ever lol. Not my fault I'm stuck in silver because of bog average team mates! Well it's my fault for getting there, but if I got some decent team mates a bit more often then that would certainly help.

Every time I get on the brink of breaking back into gold I get teamed with a bunch of plebs again who can’t read the play. I’m not good enough to carry yet but I do prefer playing in gold. In silver I’m usually the only one going for aerials or smacking shots from the walls. Probably need to practice if I want to start converting those into goals but I just play for a bit of fun here and there.

If you're on PS4, add picko_99, happy to try and get you up a few levels

I'm not a superstar by any means, but play smart enough to be able to be competitive at Gold and Plat level

3-4 (OT loss)
4-3 (OT win)

have just got back into this playing doubles with a mate.

got the pass last night, level up fairly quickly with all the bonus points.

still suck at aerial shots. i can hit the ball sometimes when flying but with little to no control, some of the people we have played against are amazing.

Heaps of smurfs a the moment since the latest rocket pass I have noticed. Got paired in Silver with a guy last night who was just having his own way, doing resets and flipping off the ceiling like you would see someone like SunlessKhan do on YouTube. I don't know why the opposition stuck around, it ended 10 - 0 (2 were mine, yay lol) as I usually initiate a forfeit once I start seeing that from the opposition. One of his goals was an end to end air dribble and he even took the piss halfway by flipping upside down

yeah fu** that s**t, we are the same as you, any time we come up against a duo that is clearly taking the absolute piss we just leave.

hasn't happened too often but bloody annoying when you're on a streak and then you cop that.

I know the easy solution is to just get better ourselves, but some of these blokes are on another planet and we don't have the time to get that good, we just want good fun close contests ha ha.

Before anyone gets too excited, you can only match randoms or create private matches at the moment. Cross platform parties to come in a later update.
