It’s nearly time for another Welsh Gaming Network (WGN) community night and ast weekend saw the turn of Overwatch, a popular game played in the WGN community and this weekends Rocket League night is certainly no exception and it’s been highly anticipated!
For those who do not have the game (what are you doing with your lives?!), it is available to purchase on steam for £14.99 or you can go ahead and source keys from other reputable sites.
When is it and how is it being organised?
The community night will be Sunday 4th June 2017 and will start at approx 1900 GMT.
Seeing as the WGN discord has a dedicated channel for Rocket League (#game-rocket_league), we will be using that as well as the General voice channel to organise the night.
The night be hosted by Staff member Galeprime and if you have any questions about the night then please do ask!
“I got it!”, “What a save!”. Just some of things you might be screaming down your microphone at your fellow teammates Sunday night!
What is being planned for Rocket League night?
I know for some people Rocket League can lean towards the boring side when watching, so for this special community night I have come up with several game modes that we will be cycling through as well as doing a few normal private games to help spice things up!
Rumble was the first full mode to be introduced into Rocket League and in its standard format, comprises of a standard 3 vs 3 format.
The twist is that every 10 seconds, you are given a “powerup” that can either aid you, or hinder your opponents. From boxing gloves to ball freezing you’ll be sure to annoy your enemies or make your teammates cheer and marvel at your glory!
For the WGN game night, we will be doing not only “standard” Rumble but also 4 vs 4, 1 second Rumble which will be sure to spice up the speed of the game and cause some hilarious goals/saves!
You can see an example of Rumble in full action with the official trailer for it below:
King of the Court
King of the court is an all vs all score-based game mode played in a 1 vs 1 format. 8 players enter, 1 leaves victorious.
In King of the Court, players face off against each other 1 vs 1 style except when you are scored on, you swap out to spectate and someone else takes your place. This goes on until the timer ends and the winner is the one with the highest points and not the largest goal count.
The time limit of this game will be dependant on how many people join in. If it’s 8 then I will up the time limit to 8-10mins, otherwise it will remain at the standard 5min marker.
Mix up some Mutators!
As well as these game modes we will mix it up a bit with the mutators, depending on what you want! From cube shaped balls to low-gravity cars. You ask for it and we shall create it!
There are also other full game modes like Dropshot and Hoops to play as well. So we shall see on the night!
I don’t own the game, can I watch?
You most certainly can! Galeprime will be hosting the evening on the Official WGN Twitch Channel, so if you want to spectate then via the twitch channel is probably the best way to do it!
We certainly hope to see you there on Sunday! Don’t forget, 1900 GMT sharp on the WGN Discord channel!
