Rocket League's 'Ball Chasing' Meta Explained: High Risk, High Reward
For years, the highest level of competitive Rocket League play relied on strict adherence to rotations, a strategy where players immediately circle back to defend after making an attempt on goal, allowing their teammates to advance and launch their own attack.
Well-executed Rocket League rotations create a blanket of coverage over the field, where one player is always in position for defense and two are further up-field looking to make an offensive play or break up their opponent's attack. When put into practice, this creates an incredibly fluid system where players on both teams rarely stop moving.
