Born Mariano Arruda on November 9, 2000, SquishyMuffinz is a Canadian Rocket League player who started out in 2015 with the beta version of the Rocket League. After forming an unsuccessful team, Iris, with Lachinio and Torment in November 2016, he later formed “The Muffin Men” with Torment and Gimmick. This team later finished first in the DreamHack Atlanta.
Squishy stands out as a Rocket League player due to his excellent mechanical abilities and consistency — qualities he attributed to making do with only Free Play in his earliest playing days due to his inability to access the Internet at the time.

Squishy’s Camera Settings vs. Experts’ Opinion
Camera height: This setting determines the height of the camera relative to the ball. While it is set depending on the player’s preference, experts agree with anything between 100 and 130, with the average being 110. But SquishyMuffinz begs to differ here — he sets the camera height at either 90 or 100.
Camera Stiffness: This means how loose your camera is as you follow your car. At the lowest level, the camera will zoom very quickly at top speeds. The higher you set your stiffness, the easier it will be to follow your car’s movement. Experts use an average camera stiffness of 0.43. But anything between 0.40 and 0.50 is within the right ballpark.
Camera angle: This determines you’re camera’s view of your car. While most experts want to set it so they can see as much of the terrain as they can, they avoid opting for the bird’s eye view. So, most agree with -3 as the best setting. Squishy prefers -5, though.
Swivel speed: This value indicates how sensitive your camera is, and how fast it should swivel during use. While some prefer to slow it down to gain better control, others who want to see as quickly as possible prefer to bend quickly. Experts agree on an average of 5.3, but Squishy opts for 8.00, instead.
Ball cam toggle: With this setting, you can decide whether to simply activate the ball cam automatically or to activate the cam by holding down a button. The latter option is somewhat cumbersome for most people, so they opt for “Toggle”. Squishy goes with the crown on this.
