Tips, Tutorials, and Teaching

Post by Amroth » July 23rd, 2016, 3:05 pm

Hey everyone! Last night a number of people got Rocket League as part of the Giveaway night, and a lot of questions were asked about how to play, how to do some of the basic tricks, and how to do aerials. Rather than trying to find everyone who asked questions and talk to them one and one, I decided to create this post with some Youtube videos from Team Rocket, a group players who are basically at eSports levels of play.

Note: All of these videos are part of playlist, but I am posting each video individually to specify which video is which.
Note #2: Each video will have brief tip from someone else that Team Rocket knows.

Video #1: Basics, Boosting, and Dodging
The first video goes over basic car mechanics and understanding boosting and dodging.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ehP7NS7T5SU&index=1&list=PLF0DKOOp6FChYz1cMoOhWheVDHNY1q-XR

Video #2: Camera Settings, and Whens and Whys of Ball Camera
This second video goes into detail about what the camera settings are all about, and then Kronovi (eSports player) goes over the times to use Ball Camera, and why to use it.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r1FXuZt1Pb8&list=PLF0DKOOp6FChYz1cMoOhWheVDHNY1q-XR&index=2

Video #3: Soaring like and Eagle (A.K.A. Aerials)
The third video is all about aerials. Tutorials, tips for practice, and advanced aerial topics.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BtIjlnVh2DE&list=PLF0DKOOp6FChYz1cMoOhWheVDHNY1q-XR&index=3

Video #4: Defending the Base (A.K.A. Goalkeeping)
Fourth video. Protect. That. Net. Also, Kronovi talks about rotations and what that entails.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AtOjHqyI3qk&list=PLF0DKOOp6FChYz1cMoOhWheVDHNY1q-XR&index=4

Video #5: Attack that GOAL!!! (A.K.A. Striking)
Fifth video on striking, tips for attacking, and how to hit the ball with a purpose.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y6sDJjezQzM&list=PLF0DKOOp6FChYz1cMoOhWheVDHNY1q-XR&index=5

Video #6: Mind Blowing Info (A.K.A. Dodging, and Car Physics)
Last video on crazy dodging mechanics, and why your car does silly things at silly time.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bbwtbYjoO88&list=PLF0DKOOp6FChYz1cMoOhWheVDHNY1q-XR&index=6

I hope these videos give you some more information and maybe teach you a mechanic you didn't know. I just re-watched them, and I forgot about some cool aerial techniques.

EDIT: I am adding this link to a good run down for aerials and with some good Gifs to look at for examples.

NEW INFO (Update - May 18, 2018)

I realized I haven't added new information in a while, so I am updating this topic with a new set of Training Packages that even I want to go through. These Training Packages start from about Novice/Pro Training to above All-Star training levels. If you want to improve your shooting, clearing, or aerials, I suggest you give one or all of these a try! As a HUGE bonus, each of the packages has a video of the creator completing each shot or clear so you can get some ideas how they are done.

For those who haven't added packages before, use the 16-character code and the search code function in Training. Send me a message in Discord if you want a hand. :)

Time to update this thread!

NEW CONTENT FOUND!!!

WARNING I HAVE NOT GONE THROUGH ALL THESE VIDEOS AND THEREFORE DO NOT KNOW IF EACH INDIVIDUAL VIDEO IS CENSORED!!!
(But they should be because they are mostly from youtube)

With that out of the way, here is a list of sections and sub-sections of tutorial videos for Rocket League skills.

Hope it helps!
