I’m late to the train, but Rocket League has stolen my heart. The first time I played the game I took it as a mindless arcade game that lacked depth. After a recent podcast episode with Gimmick I heard the truth about this wonderful game. Rocket League is simple in nature, but hits the competitive itch that many gamers (myself included) need.

Now I’m no Pro at this game, but I’ve put in enough time to learn some tips that will greatly help any Rocket League beginners. Without further ado, here are 5 Rocket League Tips for Beginners…
Rocket League Tip #1
Don’t Chase The Ball Like a Bunch of Children Playing Soccer
As a beginner every fiber inside you will want to rush the ball to get a hit on it. New players will chase the ball around the map like a needy girlfriend. Train yourself to sit back during moments of the game when a teammate has the ball. Being able to watch the ball from a distance allows you to setup for a goal, a steal, or another power play. Chasing the ball around constantly rarely benefits anyone other than the other team.
Rocket League Tip #2
Practice Your Aerials
