This week, one of the Rocket League weekly challenges is Eleven-hundred Points, which challenges you to score 1,100 points in a single match. I've seen similar challenges before, and I just don't understand how anyone is expected to complete them. I've watched ESports pro matches, and the MVP is usually around 400-600 points.
I can think of 2 obvious ways to accomplish it:
- Collude with the other team to run the score up so everybody can complete the challenge. Probably easiest in 1v1, since you'd only have to get 1 other person to agree. I've never tried this.
- Get matched against a team much worse than you, but who just won't quit. Normally, the other team will forfeit long before you can accumulate 1,100 points. I've reached that score in matches vs. bots, but never against actual humans.
Is there some game mode where you have a reasonable chance of getting 1,100 points in a single match? Why does Rocket League issue this challenge?
2023 Update: I've now seen scenario #2 happen, although unfortunately the Eleven-hundred Points challenge was not active at the time. The MVP in a 3v3 casual soccar match managed 1109 points with 5 goals, 3 assists, 1 save, and 10 shots. The final score was 9-1. I only managed 398 points with 2 goals, 2 assists, and 5 shots.
