Since there been quite a few replys from the Rocket League from the gauging interest thread.  It's time to see what actual night people want to play this game.

I have put down the date for Wednesday 9th, but depending on what days people want to play I can change the day. 

So sign up if you want to play mp mayhem with your fellow oldg.  Note if you are not available for weds 9th, put down what night your available to play & what platform your on, Thanks.

I think I'm working away on the 9th so I might struggle but I'll need to check and confirm. If I'm not working i'm in. I'm on PC and happy to set up the private match-room etc.

Well xbox & pc windows 10 user can use the xbox party chat system, so switch owners are out of luck.

Guide to crossplay

https://support.rocketleague.com/hc/en-us/articles/360001852193-Can-I-play-with-a-friend-that-is-on-a-different-platform- (https://support.rocketleague.com/hc/en-us/articles/360001852193-Can-I-play-with-a-friend-that-is-on-a-different-platform-)

"If you and your friends are on compatible platforms, all you need to do to play together is create a Private Match with Name/Password. You may find instructions on how to create and join a Private Match here. https://support.rocketleague.com/hc/en-us/articles/360001858154 (https://support.rocketleague.com/hc/en-us/articles/360001858154)

To create a Private Match, all you need to do is select Play (on the Main Menu) and then select Private Match. You will then see two options:

Create a Private Match. Here you can customize all the settings that you would like for your match, including if you want this to be between you and your Party friends only, or if you want others to be able to join via name and password (the Name/Password option also allows you to play with friends that are on a different platform)

So if we create a private match the name/password should be oldg, as it would be easy to type in.

Hi, Fridarey and I had a good couple of games tonight, enjoyed it, apologies we didn't manage to get onto the private match, we were getting a #87 error which means someone has disabled cross platform play :(

This was great fun, I think there's probably a few guys on the PC side who'd like it too. If we can get the cross-platform thing working easily it'd be great to team up against anyone who likes winning 6-0 ;)

Sorry it wouldn't let me connect from Switch and I didn't have the energy to start troubleshooting to be honest.
