61 CRITICAL Rocket League Tips For New Players

This video is the best overall guide to Rocket League for new players. In this video, I go over everything from rotation, to mechanics, settings, training, and so much more! I don’t go in depth on anything because I don’t want this video to be an hour long lol. I do, however, reference a lot of videos here in the description that you can check out if you’d like to dive deeper into any of the topics discussed.

    tip: if your hands sweat and your mouse is completely soaked in sweat. wash your hands, grab a towel and dry your hands an your mouse. tip2: If you are not concentrated and frustrated. If you have a window in your room, open it. Or atleast cool your self down and take a small break and watch youtube for atleast 3 minutes.

    5:44 not just playing worse but i used to have crippling social anxiety when i was starting RL and usually when i mess up i would get constant "what a save!"'s because i still needed quickchats and it would make me quit mid game and not play again for a while even in ranked. it's way easier to tolerate and ignore now but i still wish this community wasn't so toxic still, it's never gotten better and it doesn't seem like it ever will.

    Also, on 2:45 use the super-fast ball speed. It helps to use that bc it makes it so you think the ball is moving in real time and you aren’t making your reactions faster and better with more accuracy too.

    I have a tip about Kick-offs! I don't know if they are worth doing but for me, it's something- If I'm in the corner of the field I boost straight forward and drill to the right(or left) hitting the ball directly either sending the ball sliding off the opponent's head or- somewhere else completely. While in the middle I either stay still until I see where the ball is going to be shot at and then run- And in the corner of the Goal I basically do the same thing as the first one. Sidenote: when I start in the middle of usually run straight and backflip, I don't know how much it effects it, but I feel like it's a good wary to Fool the ball's direction

    Rock league tutorials are bad. They dont teach anything, they only ask you to do, but dont improve your progressing/skills. Most technics are not obvious and unreachable for the most players, only because they need to be precisely done. I am trying to improve my skills and I think i reached my physical skill cap.
