Getting Started With Rocket League Port Forwarding

All routers block incoming connections unless you direct them via the router’s port forwarding settings to be sent to the specified device at the end of the connection. This specified device is your gaming console or PC. You can expect faster data and better ping times, ultimately giving you a superior gaming experience.
