Pretty much any night of the week you can find me playing Rocket League. Now, I know what you’re thinking, “He plays every night! He must be good.” That statement right there is the furthest thing from the truth. Sure, I’ve had my fair share of wins but the amount of losses is equally humbling.

I can say that Rocket League has become one of my favorite games. It’s a fast-pace game that’s easy to pick up, challenging you to either continue your winning streak or come back from the set of losses some random person on the internet dealt you. But it’s this aspect that keeps the game competitive. The want to keep trying to recuperate from those brutal loss streaks. The want to deliver an answer to those back-to-back goals the user Dicky Bobby just fired on you. That is exactly what led to my best Rocket League game, ever!

Here is my story, in screenshots:

Once upon a time, in the land of rocket powered jet cars…

I was down. Guy already scored 4 goals. What was I going to do?

I was down from the start. My opponent, Juan Cena, had already scored four goals. What was I going to do?

 

Then, the battle continued, delivering a stroke of luck on my side.

As the battle continued, I was hit with a stroke of luck. This birthed consecutive goals, and some criticism.

 

Then, the name calling started.

I thought, maybe this could be a term of endearment in his language?

 

So, I responded the only way I know how, with "laughter."

So I responded the only way I know how, with “laughter.” That always makes the situation better, right?

 

Even when things look "scary", I forged on. Completing yet another goal to raise the stakes.

Even when things looked scary, I forged on. I had commanded that bravery be on my side and completed yet another goal to raise the stakes.

 

Until, before I knew it, it was over.

Before I knew it, the match was over. The last goal scored pushed me to a breezy 8-7 victory  over Senor Juan Cena. In his final explosion of rage, he quit, further solidifying my stance as the clear victor.

The End
