Training Packs from Battle-Car Veterans

September 18, 2019     Community News  

Greetings, Rocket League Community! It's time to refresh the featured training packs to help improve your game. With October right around the corner, this is a special time for us at Psyonix and the community—specifically, the Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket Powered Battle-Cars (SARPBC) Community.

Rocket League's predecessor, SARPBC, is racing toward its 11th anniversary next month! In honor of this momentous occasion, we're refreshing the featured training packs with practice regimens from the OG's of the game. These are veterans who learned how to perform aerial goals and epic saves in SARPBC long before the Rocket League Championship Series (RLCS) even existed.

Along with the live training packs below, check out how long some of these players have been in the game, and hear some words of wisdom from the long-time players themselves:

"If you want to improve and get better at Rocket League, don't just practice the mechanics. Positioning and rotation are more important than mechanics. Watch some of your own replays and figure out what you have done wrong and work on those things."

"Enjoy yourself, first and foremost. Ground work is just as important as being Squishy doing flippys. Focusing on catching the ball from the air for different scenarios can drastically improve your game, and help you plan ahead for how you want to make your next move. Analyze your own replays if you play as a team. Discuss key points for games when you concede to help find areas of weakness going forward."

"The best way to improve your game is to practice in chunks. Pick the weakest aspect of your game and solely work on it until it’s improved and you're happy with it. The more specific you are, the better. If you play the game with no real improvement goal in mind, your improvement will be a lot slower. You’ll find that it’s really hard to concentrate on one skill while playing, and quickly turn your attention to just winning. This is normal. When you catch yourself falling into that habit, bring your attention back to the skill you’re working on. If double jump aerials are one of your weaknesses, then try my Double Jump Aerial training pack. ”

"A good way to improve in Rocket League is repeatedly asking yourself, 'What would I want my teammate to do if they were in this situation,' and 'What does my opponent not want me to do in this situation.' Asking these questions while watching yourself in replays from their perspectives will help you recognize good and bad patterns in your play style."

"For anyone who's trying to improve, my most important tip would be: don't just practice your mechanics, but also research how to play the game. There's plenty of good video material out there that'll turn you from just a decent mechanical player into an overall solid powerhouse. Apart from that, you should often save replays and watch them thoroughly!"

”My advice for new players trying to improve their game would be to stay disciplined and focused with their practice. You will improve quickly if you continue to train and practice no matter what happens, and you'll be glad you worked hard when the results come in.”
