7. Not really a demolition derby, but still…
The boost doesn’t only serve as a rapid way to get to the ball, but also a game-saving demolition ability. When you smash into an enemy player, at the peak of your boost, you’ll destroy his vehicle, thus making him respawn at his starting position a few seconds later.
It’s super useful, more so considering that you’ve paid attention to tip #6 and saved your boost to use it when the team actually needs it. Let’s say, a counter-attack is underway and the enemy player is inching to the ball, you can boost to the max and hit him straight where it hurts.
Game saved, everybody will love you and the chat will be showered by – What a Save! OMG! and other quick commands.
8. Slow balls are not to be underestimated
Rocket League is fast-paced, it sure is, but for a game that relies so much on speed, there are sure a lot of slow ball moments.
During your playthrough, you’ll experience them on a daily-basis, even on a match-basis. Slow balls will sit idle in the air, plummeting towards the ground, and you’ll see a lot of players just waiting for it to come down.
That’s a bad strategy.
It’s best for you to position yourself as to get the upper hand, and not sit directly under the ball waiting, doing absolutely nothing.
Also, try to ram into an enemy player to confuse him and make him lose his bearings.
