Looks like a pretty standard Rocket League goal, right? I bet ObservedTrial is feeling good about himself, ready to bask in the glory of a replay. Thing is, the replay goes way horribly awry.
One would expect a replay to completely match what you saw while playing the game, but that’s not what happens here. ObservedTrial experienced a network connection error as the replay kicked into gear, and somehow the game lost the ability to recreate the goal.
So rather than seeing his, you know, goal, this is what shows up for ObservedTrial:
The replay presents an alternate reality where the goal never happened.
Of course, the goal did happen, and it’s properly credited when the game picks up again.
Still, hilarious and amazing.
