Community Spotlight: In the Year to Come Image

It’s an all-new year and the ideal time to start working towards achieving your Rocket League New Year's resolutions! In our first Community Spotlight of 2018, we’re looking at the abilities that sparked improvement in the community, and which of those mechanics will help build the best of the best in Competitive Seasons to come. Whether you’re studying the latest tutorials or spending late nights in Custom Training, this blog will provide you with the blueprint you need to make 2018 a Calculated year!

Custom Training

Approach the ball with confidence, while flying through the air for a flip-reset shot and dash across the field with less boost while rotating into position. With Custom Training available at all times, scenarios like that are possible as the skill ceiling in Rocket League continues to rise every day. Listed below is another round of Training packs that are built to hone core abilities while focusing on newer skills like the aforementioned flip-reset shot and more.

Prepare to challenge yourself and elevate your potential!

New Mechanics

It’s almost hard to believe, but even after two and a half years our community is still unearthing new Battle-Car mechanics. At first, players learned how to pinch the ball, but that wasn’t enough. After pinching came half flips, then jump resets, various flicks, and then ceiling shots, but all of these advances leave us with a single question: What’s next?

For many of you, wavedashing is still an advanced technique while successfully executing a ceiling shot mid-game is nearly unheard-of. That isn’t stopping players like JSTN, Lachinio, Squishy Muffinz, and UsedWolf from elevating the wave-dashing mechanic to another level, though! If you find yourself low on boost or racing across the the field, try practicing these cutting-edge multidashing methods and in time you’ll have one more trick over your opponents in both offensive and defensive situations. It’s still too early to say how far multidashing will take the Rocket League community, but we’re excited to see what players will come up with in the future!

Who will be the next one to discover a new in-game mechanic? Keep practicing and maybe the next Community Spotlight will feature you!
