How To Position Like a Pro
Rocket League 3v3's have a wide and expansion set of opportunities for a player to choose from. Without focus or previous knowledge, many players will make the wrong decision or in general, fall just slightly short of the right one. To minimize the set of opportunities, and make them more achievable for players, we generally will categorize and set default decisions for players on certain scenarios. These categories are called positions and we have three primary positions and an off position, or a soft fourth position if you want to think of it like that. Introduction Early in the game, players took a liking to a common trend as well as a Gregan video series called tabletop tactics to define the three positions simply as , one, two, and three, or First, Second, and Third. Naming the Roles something specific never really matter, but its important to align common phrases to better share knowledge and keep improvement heading in the same direction. With that following into RLCS there have been minor improvements or adjustments to how we cover each position, but since there will always be three players on each team there will most likely not be any more big changes to how we categorize and identify our three players. Positions First Position (First Man) Commonly known as the First Man, the First Position covers the most instinctual role in rocket league for most players, known as hitting the ball. I generally classify this role for players I work with as "Pressure or

How To Improve First Touches
Introduction Within all plays in Rocket League, whether you are covering solo plays, shots, or saves on the net, they will begin or end with your first touch. Creating a strong first touch begins with your position, then is followed by your resources, and is finished with its execution. As a heads up, this article is written with the expectation that the reader has general knowledge of positioning, rotation, and common terms talked about within the community. Suppose you feel like you're misunderstanding terms or information. In that case, I Highly suggest reading my Article on Basic Positioning, or checking out my YouTube Series named Scholar’s School of Learning, as it covers most of the terms in this article within the first Video.

4 Tips On How To Be Faster In Rocket League
Rocket League is a very fast-paced game, and its nothing new to think that being quicker to move makes a big difference on the field. Due to its speed a lot of players find them selves chasing a higher top speed in their game play hoping to be faster than the next player until they hit a skill wall in speed that we all hit eventually. Introduction To better understand this wall, lets understand some basic concepts of speed in rocket league. Speed can be broken down into, Car Speed, Distance and location, Ball Direction, and Engagement time. If one of these factors are not in play within your training for speed then chances are you are feeling the speed wall, where you feel you're going as fast as possible but are still getting beat to most balls. These four sections or tips are going to be our focus on how to make you faster. Car Speed The top car speed in Rocket League is easiest understood as around 51 Miles Per Hour, or 83 Kilometres per hour. But its not as simple as that; Rocket league is made with Unreal Engine and therefore has a speed unit called Unreal Units Per Second. When your car trails and wind lines appear on screen, Super Sonic is around 2200 Unreal Units Per Second. True top speed is 2300 Unreal Units per second, and its not very difficult to reach it, but at the end of the day the difference in speed is near negligible. Maybe on certain bump attempts while chasing someone from behind that last 100 Unreal Units a second will get you a demo, but in most cases supersonic, is supersonic. Now that we have identified our top speed in the game let's determine

Back Post Rotation Fails In Rocket League. Now What?
Gray Zones show up when you least expect them, and generally don't have a simple "hit-the-ball" solution we may want as a player. In most instances of a Gray Zone, we can quickly identify were missing offensive pressure, or defensive breakthrough opportunities. But to put Gray Zones simply, it generally just means we cannot cover an opportunity currently happening due to not having the right position, or possibly car facing. Quick Review To get the most from this article, a few things to understand or to read and watch up on are Basic Positioning, Basic rotation, and general ball cam rule. I have an article covering Ball Cam Rule and positioning and a video on Basic Rotations and Gray Zone Coverage on my youtube channel. You may be able to understand Everything in this article without watching or reading my previous content, but some of my Terminology may slow down your experience.

Let's take a play scenario and identify a common way to rotate for many players using our basic rotation knowledge.
