Whether you're playing casual games with friends or trying to climb the Rocket League ranks, knowing these skills is important to getting those wins and improving as a Rocket League player. As we all know, Rocket League is like playing football with cars. Despite all the various modes and differing numbers of players per team, the basics remain the same in every match. Don't worry if you're not running the best Rocket League cars, or if your decals aren't up to scratch: knowing the basics is the most important thing. Goals are self-explanatory, and learning how to move well in the air to juggle the ball and keep it away from your opponents is a complicated (albeit vital) skill. But what are clears in Rocket League, and how do you achieve them? Put simply, it's playing the goalkeeper role, but we'll explain in more detail in this guide. Read the rest of the story...

The classic Rumble mode has evolved into Tactical Rumble, giving players more options to use the right power-up at the right time. Just like standard Rumble, matches are classic 3v3 soccar with power-ups leading to unpredictable play and hilarious goals. But in Tactical Rumble, instead of having just one random power-up, players will receive three to choose from. Once used, your three power-ups will reset after a cooldown period, giving you three new options. But as Rumble players know, not all power-ups are equal. That's why certain power-ups have different cooldown times before your next set of power-ups appear. Here's each power-up's cooldown time: 10-SECOND COOLDOWN TORNADO: SWEEP UP THE BALL AND OPPOSING CARS INTO A GIANT FUNNEL CLOUD CAR SWAPPER: CHANGE POSITIONS ON THE FIELD WITH YOUR OPPONENT DISRUPTOR: FORCES YOUR OPPONENT TO DRIVE UNCONTROLLABLY 15-SECOND COOLDOWN POWER HITTER: ALLOWS YOU TO HIT THE BALL HARDER AND DEMO OPPONENTS ON CONTACT GRAPPLING HOOK: PULLS YOU TOWARDS THE BALL THE BOOT: KICKS AN OPPONENT’S CAR 20-SECOND COOLDOWN MAGNETIZER: ATTRACTS THE BALL TO YOUR CAR FREEZER: FREEZES THE BALL IN-PLACE 25-SECOND COOLDOWN PLUNGER: GRABS THE BALL VIA PLUNGER AND CORD HAYMAKER: PUNCHES THE BALL WITH GREAT FORCE SPIKES: ATTACH THE BALL TO YOUR CAR Tactical Rumble will be available as an LTM from June 3 through June 7. So, assemble your team, and choose your power-ups wisely!

How to get Formula 1 cars in Rocket LeagueMay 21, 2021 - The LoadoutRocket League's hotly anticipated collaboration with Formula 1 will kick off tomorrow as a part of a "multi-year partnership" that sees F1 cars and their iconic team liveries added to the game. Developer Psyonix also promises to revisit the Formula 1 event in future, perhaps to coincide with the iconic Silverstone Grand Prix, or when the winner of the 2021 World Championship is crowned. The partnership comes in the wake of a successful Nascar promotion, in which Psyonix added a new body type and corresponding decals. This time around, all ten Formula 1 teams will be represented in-game, with skins ranging from the iconic red of Ferrari, the cool green of Aston Martin, to the winning colours of Mercedes and many more besides. Whether you've always fancied yourself as a bit of a Lewis Hamilton, or you just want to see what happens when you take a painstakingly-designed vehicle into an arena of goals, explosions, and carnage, the Formula 1 Fan Pack offers something for everyone. Alternatively, it's a good way to flex while climbing the Rocket League ranks. Whatever your motivation, we've covered exactly how to get Formula 1 cars in Rocket League right here.

Whether you’re aiming for 88-mph goals with the DeLorean Time Machine from Back To The Future, or it’s all about family and the Fast & Furious cars, players on PC, PlayStation, and Xbox will be able to use Premium DLC Packs that were purchased prior to the launch of Free To Play across platforms. Accessing licensed content across platforms requires two steps: You will need to link your different platform accounts if you haven’t done so already. If your accounts are already linked, you can skip this step. Once your platform accounts are linked up, you will need to log into the platform where you own the licensed items once this feature is live on May 24. You only need to do this once. It’s a necessary step so PsyNet can link which DLC your platform account owns to your other accounts. Some content cannot make the cross-platform journey, including: Platform-Exclusive Items: e.g., Sweet Tooth, Hogsticker, Armadillo, Mario and Luigi NSR, and Samus' Gunship Ultimate Edition On-Disc DLC: Batman/DC Superheroes Pack For our players on Nintendo Switch™, we are not able to fully support cross-platform Premium DLC on the console at this time. You will be able to use Premium DLC owned on other platforms, but items owned on your Nintendo Switch™ cannot be used elsewhere. This is something we are still pursuing with Nintendo, as we want players to be able to use licensed cars and items across every platform.Rocket League trading: how to set up the best tradesMay 20, 2021 - The LoadoutRocket League trading can be a confusing thing to try and get to grips with.

Despite acting as a scouting ground for future UK talent, the portal will be open to everyone, regardless of their skill level. The Guild Academy covers just Rocket League and Fortnite for now, but resources for FIFA and Valorant are not far behind, meaning all four of the esports Guild currently fields teams in will be involved. The "holistic and comprehensive" approach to the Guild Academy sees dedicated curriculums and training programmes to master in-game mechanics and strategies across three skill levels. As well as in-game mentorship, which features video training, quizzes, and even VOD reviews, there are also resources covering psychology, nutrition, physical and social skills, and esports career advice, according to academy director Joe Sutton.

Morales has pulled out of the Intel World Open, saying that he won't compete in the tournament next month. He explained his decision in a TwitLonger statement posted to his Twitter account, saying that while he is definitely "not retiring," he won't be taking part in the tournament. The Intel World Open is an Olympic-affiliated tournament with a $500,000 prize pool, split evenly between Rocket League and Street Fighter V. Teams of three players from the same region can compete in open qualifiers to earn a place, before working their way up to Regional Finals where the real prizes are on offer. However, jstn. will be a big miss at the tournament, having won three of the last four Rocket League Seasons with NRG, and the team looking on track to secure another title in RLCS Season X. He cites general unhappiness, the World Championship being cancelled, and the online-only nature of the Intel World Open as the major reasons for him pulling out of the tournament.

But positive word-of-mouth resulted in the game quickly exploding in popularity. And by the end of its first month on Steam, Rocket League saw its playerbase spike up to an average of 12.8k players per hour. Since then, Rocket League has shown no signs of slowing down with the playerbase continuing to increase. And now, Rocket League is celebrating its second year on Steam with a current average of 39k players per hour – a number that’s twenty times the game’s debut playerbase and that keeps it in Steam’s daily top 10 most played list. [caption id="attachment_276892" align="aligncenter" width="800"] Rocket League's Average Players per Hour via GitHyp[/caption] Most recently, the developers at Psyonix discounted Rocket League by 40% during the Steam Summer Sale -- reducing the price from $19.99 to $11.99 -- which they've done multiple times since the game's release. However, it was actually the dev’s big Year 2 update featuring a new map, Rick and Morty content, and the first-ever double drop-rate weekend that resulted in a 28% increase in players right after the sale. Rocket League’s constant updates and lack of competition are two of the biggest factors attributed to its player gains. Aside from Psyonix’s own previous game on PlayStation 3, 2008’s Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars, there’s nothing quite like Rocket League to challenge it and steal away players. And until there is, Rocket League’s playerbase is on track to continue increasing on Steam with the devs already announcing tons of new content on the way.
