Whether you’re Mr. Dependable when it comes to rotations, or more of the freestyling type, your form and approach will almost always dictate how you play on the pitch.

How to Improve Your Playstyle
As the Rocket League skill ceiling continues to rise, players have found more ways to creatively score goals with tricks like the tornado flick, ceiling shot, and flip reset, all of which should help you define and play to your strengths. Sometimes, it’s good to look back at your replays and dive into what works for you and what doesn’t, because we know that ceiling shots are impressive, sure, but they might not always be the best play.
If you need help with analyzing your replays, the community has your back. Check out Gibbs’ long-lasting Analysis series, where he helps players of all Ranks do a play-by-play analysis; if you need more opinions, check out the RocketLeagueCoaching subreddit or SunlessKhan’s new Allegiance University series for advice and insight on how to improve at various different levels of skill. There are so many ways to play Rocket League, it doesn’t hurt to try and change things up now and then on your quest for superiority.
