Rocket League PC Tournament

enorris116enorris116 Registered User new member
Sorry if this is a stupid question. Last year was my first PAX and I did a couple console tournaments. I've never really played PC, so I was really bummed when I saw the Rocket League tournament was PC. What are the odds that they'll give you the option to use a controller instead of a mouse/keyboard?

    The odds are roughly 100%. Give or take. We actually provide 360 controllers, so unless we happen to run out for some reason, you should be set.

    It would suck if they made us use keyboards, because even us PC players use controllers to play RL. It's freaking hard as crap otherwise.

    I'm going to echo because K/m is not the reason to use a PC. The reason is better graphics, frames, multi monitors, and 3D. Or, heaven forbid, all the above at the same time. So many games on PC are now played with controllers instead of k/m. The proportion of controllers to k/m may startle you once you get in modern PC gaming.

    I'm only game on PC, due to all of the aforementioned reasons, but I only use controllers on games with cars.

    Are sign ups the day of the tournament or will we be able to sign up Friday? Also like the console tournaments, are there extremely limited sign ups for the Rocket League PC tourny? Thanks!

    All tourney sign-ups are day of.

    Is it PAX <insert nearest future PAX here> yet?

    I'm hoping the Rocket League tourny will be fairly big, it will be a ton of fun either way though! Goodluck to all who play me

    Can we bring our own? I have a Rock Candy controller I use for PC that feels completely different from the normal one.

    Bringing in outside controllers isn't allowed in order to maintain an even playing field. Sorry!

    Fair enough. I'll just switch over to my regular one to get comfortable again.

    is there anyway you guys could provide some playstation controllers? I havent touched an xbox controller in years and have played RL on my DS4 for many many hours...

    I switched over to the regular 360 controller and my rankings have been spiraling. This does not bode well. >_>

    Still some questions, so let me confirm that we have a decent enough sized tournament which will be using Xbox 360 controllers.
