We’ve all been stuck with dodgy teammates at some point in Rocket League. Hell, we’ve all been a dodgy teammate at some point, and if you’re thinking, “I absolutely haven’t, I’m excellent all the time and have never whiffed anything in my life!” then you’re wrong, and you should reevaluate what you’re doing and admit to yourself that even you can have a bad day.
Anyway, the pain of being with teammates who seem to be having a bad day is a pain that we all know all too well, and it might even be one that you enjoy. We won’t shame you for that here, don’t worry.
However, we don’t think it’s controversial to assume that the world of Rocket League would be a little better, a little happier, and maybe even a little less toxic if we all worked together to not shout at each other. Now, we don’t know for certain that that’s even possible, but we do know that you can get a lot better without actually having to play the game; you just need to watch the right videos.
