I tried Rocket League when it was free, but I only played against bots (or no bots to get all achievements). Is it normal that I suck so much that I don't want to try online not to be a burden for teammates ? I need to play online games to collect the painted item.
Welcome to TA, where stats are made up and some achievements do not matter.

I see Rocket League has 1 discontinued achievement. For a game released in 2016 that is pretty dissapointing.

Technically the achievement is still obtainable. You can still get it if you were to go out and get a physical copy simply for the achievement, follow the guide written to unlock it via that method, and then return it right after. Although it does seem like it would be a hassle, if you really wanted to play the game I'd say its worth it simply because it is a phenomenal game and a lot of fun.

I feel like they wouldn't (hopefully) leave this unobtainable for digital owners. I mean Saturday Morning RPG finally got fixed after 6 months and hardly anyone played that game. I'm sure if enough attention is brought to it they would attempt to fix it, the developers seem like they care about their product.

In the video it also shows Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Achievements and Battlefield 1 Achievements , I have been seeing people being able to get Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Achievements to download, can anyone confirm if they are also free this weekend?

Depending on your rank (Semi-Pro, Pro, etc.), you should be fine. As long as you're not playing Competitive, people shouldn't get pissy. Social play is really fun and it's mostly just people goofing off. Either that or you run into teams that wanna crush you. Either way, you earn items just for completing games, so go have fun! :D I also have multiple painted items if you need them for the achievement. I don't know if that works or not... If it does, feel free to PM me!

Also, if you have yet to try Rocket League, I would highly recommend it. It is by far my favorite game and it is great for both casual and competitive play. It's a wonderful game in my eyes because it is easy to pick up but hard to master. So get to it!! wave

I enjoyed Rocket League, but if you aren't playing against friends you run into the same types of player:
those who can score aerial goals
those who can play as a keeper
those that are just average players(like myself)
quitters

And it gets fairly predictable when you've worked out what type of players you're with.

It is a fun game for a while though, I won't deny that

If you get to a high enough level, you run into people that do all those things! Lol. Gotta be able to be a good keeper and striker. wink

Some people just aren't good at it, but the more you play, the better you get. Just takes time, so try it out!

I got the original 1k when it was last free to play.

Thought I would get the dlc ones this time, but they don't seem to be unlocking.

Are they not active?

Are you referring to the disc based solution? Or is it actually achievable now for digital owners?

All the DLC achievements are Title Updates, so I would assume so.
