1. Don’t ball chase

This is something that naturally every tends to do when they play Rocket League. This is going to be hard for some people at first in that everyone want to be the hero to give your team a 1-0 lead or any lead in general. What this means is that you don’t have to chase after the ball every time that it is hit. Allow your teammates a chance to go and get the ball and try to score. Assisting on a goal is almost the same as scoring a goal. It is just like an assist in hockey. If you record an assist that means that your team scored a goal even if it wasn’t you who did it. Even though you want to be a hero and score, you don’t have to score all five of your teams goals.

If you hit the ball into the offensive zone and see that your teammate is pushing up to go after the ball that you hit, stay back and play a little defense. When you ball chase, it tends to put your team at a disadvantage because your other teammates are going to be trying to make a play on the ball when they should be and you shouldn’t be, thus making your net more wide open for a shot.
