I hear people constantly say when playing RL things along the lines of "how did he get so much power?" or "Why when I hit it goes no where?". There is a technique for hitting the ball very hard which is slightly tricky but worth spending a bit of time practicing in a training pack or free play. I think in the RL community its known as "Booming". Im not here to show off but the link below is to a gif of one of my recent goals where I hit two Boomers in a row, Im not this consistent usually but I just seemed to get the timing nailed on this one.
I know people tend to take the &^%£ out of esports but Im pretty much hooked on a RL 1v1 tournament which is being broadcast by a twitch channel I frequent. I dont play 1v1 often as its too stressful (no one to blame for misplays) but I find it great to watch.
Basically 8 of Europe's best 1v1 players going up against each other in a round robin league (to decide seedings) followed by a seeded knockout round. The prize pool is $5k. One match per day over 35 days (it's already about 15 days in) is being broadcast "live" (its prerecorded but premiers) at 6pm UK time every night on or you can watch it on youtube (as I do so I can watch it easier on my tv) from about 8pm on www.youtube.com/channel/UCldqb1GljWZzaRVtYXfvlAg
Im pleased to say the commentator is British (Scottish) so you dont have to mute it like you do when watching other RL esports which tend to be fronted by Americans.

adcook: After last nights dire performance on both PUBG and RL, I assume we will be hammering the Rainbox6 siege free weekend. I forgot to set it downloading last night so I must remember to set it off when I get in at 4pm
