Community Spotlight: Improving Air Control

Postby Dirkened on Tue Aug 08, 2017 3:37 pm


The Rocket League community is always finding new ways to explore and share their creativity. Whether it’s via YouTube, Steam Workshop, or Reddit, there's always a constant stream of content to watch, enjoy, and learn from. In fact, one of the early and most popular content creators, JHZER, broke through on YouTube after his freestyling montages took the community by storm. Freestyling hones in on a player’s ability to redirect aerial passes into impressive goals, which is crucial in the highest skill tiers.


Custom Training
Live matches will always test your skill, but player-made ‘Custom Training’ packs offer an efficient means of practice. This month's ‘Custom Training’ list will focus on a new practice regimen that improves air and ball control through various acrobatic scenarios. Given enough time, these newly-selected packs could help you discover untapped avenues of Rocket League -- flip resets, ceiling shots, air dribbles, and more are yours to discover.

Though the refreshed ‘Featured Training Browser’ does lean towards more advanced players, don't forget that the in-game 'Aerial Training' mode is still an excellent resource for players of all skill levels. Check out our previous Community Spotlight for codes that fit the bill.

Community Creativity
Moving on to our Steam Workshop pick, Dreale's Parkour-Map #1 is one of the more unique obstacle courses out there. It forces players to think about their moves in unusual ways, especially since a portion of the course takes place in reverse gravity. We highly recommend checking out Kevpert's "Elite Car Control Tutorial" video that expertly explains how to strategically practice flying through obstacles.

The second showcase is a community-invented mini-game, known as Aerial Freeze Tag. It encourages friends to get together for a (Private) 'Mutators' match where you'll need to knock opponents out of the air while maintaining an uninterrupted flight. The last person flying wins, and as Wayprotein shows in his video, it's an amazing opportunity to practice your air control.

But what do YOU think? What other types of Community Spotlights would you like to see in future installments of this feature? Let us know on our official Twitter account and we'll see where it takes us! Until next month, Happy Freestyling!

Is there a way I could practice air control in the hoops arena? I think it's very odd that even in all the labs and every other arena you can set up practice. It funny to me to see, when hoops is loading, that it says that you can set up practice. Can we get somebody to add it please.

Aerial freeze tag sounds awesome. I'm going to have to try that out.
