PostSubject: New Team play tips!   Fri Oct 12, 2012 10:25 pm

As everyone knows I am new to LoL and still learning all facets of the game.
I've had the opportunity to play alongside some of the more experienced players for a few games. Let me tell ya, its rough playing against all 30 while being level 18.

These are just some things I have picked up along the way, that may help other players that come along.

Do not auto kill the minions, rather only try to get the last hit for the gold. This seems to be mostly for the early stages of a game. The reason for this is if you killing the minions you are pushing the fight to there turret and making it hard for the Jungler to come in and gank, while also making it easier for the enemy's team to attempt a gank on you.

Here are some of the reasons why you want to try to kill the enemy instead of just pushing them back. First if the enemy is dead no one is there to defend the turret, and they must sacrafice elsewhere in attempt to get someone in position to save it. Secondly if the enemy is killed we get Gold to buy better gear with. Getting that advantage is pretty nice especially early game. The third reason is, if the enemy is dead he isnt gaining XP.

Feel free to add your thoughts on either this or a different tip.

Agreed! One thing I would stress is getting those builds to match the enemy team. If they're going to be too tanky to nuke, then alter your strat to fit the needs of the team overall. Smile

Also, don't be that lane that pushes before the 15 minute mark, try to stall it if you can. Unless they've already taken a turret then you're free to push and go roaming. By order of importance, top and bot should try to hold their turrets and continue laning as much as possible with. Allowing mid to roam will allow the Jungle and Mid to be top and bottom at any given moment meaning much more ganks and assist/kill gold.

Likewise, if top is a Bruiser/Tank they should be next to push their tower freeing them up to team fight. Otherwise Bot should push next allowing the ADC and Support to roam and be ready for Dragon clears. This is all subjective to the enemies strategy but ultimately allowing mid to freely roam will increase your kills. Once all three lanes have lost a tower remember to COUNTER JUNGLE. Here's where you can really help your team. Once top and Bot are pushed they are free to counter jungle and ward the opponents jungle giving you eyes on the enemy team and jungler and keeping him from farming. The easiest mobs to take are Wraiths and Golems respectively, I find trying to take Wolves puts you in a rough spot with little way to retreat if you get caught. It also allows the ADC to take the opponents red buff, with 2 red buffs on your team you increase your chances of scoring those critical kills.

Remember MAP AWARENESS, Unless you have wards and know where the enemy team is don't try to counter jungle. It's easy to counter jungle but it's just as easy to have a 3v2 or 3v1 fight break out that you weren't ready for.

Edit: Likewise as was mentioned before don't forget to match your build to the team comp. As I play mid some times I find the hardest thing to deal with is building glass cannon and getting focused. If it's a heavy AD team or the ADC is especially fed, push to a Thornmail and Frozen Heart. Those two items alone will guarantee your survival for the most part. I know a lot of us get caught up in trying to do the most damage possible, but survival is paramount. No matter how much damage you do your tanks cannot protect you at all times, and a dead AP/AD Carry is a useless AP/AD carry.

A note on warding: When you're warding and pretty much everyone should be outside of the ADC until late game, try to drop your wards in an area that covers 2-3 entrace/exit paths. Those paths will be the most used and increasing the amount you can see will generally give you a better idea of where the enemy is. Dropping a ward in the middle of the river where no entrace/exit will be see allows them to slip by undetected. But if you move it just a few inches below or above the bushes you can cover more ground and allow for the most vision possible.

It can be good to stall lanes and drop them at a point but if you're losing your lane pretty bad, consider just taking all five to the lane that's having trouble and knocking it down fast as you can and hope you can even it up in team fights instead of just letting a lane get further and further ahead. Also a very good website to have on hand for ranked/draft is if you need help knowing who some counterpicks are.

Also if you're using build/rune page guides, do NOT stay dead on what they say, esp if you end up on a site like - Their guides are good for general ideas but if you stick to them you're going to get wrecked.

Also, if you're support jungle or a semi-passive top laner... GP10 are your best friends in the world. Someone like Darius is going to benefit from rushing a Philosopher Stone and Heart of Gold in the early game and bumping them up to a Randuins and Shurelyas later on for slowing the enemy while simultaneously speeding up your team for a very strong initiate or disengage.

During teamfights if say their ADC is running way off, do not chase, stay in the group and kill whoever still wants to duke it out unless you know for a fact you can be back within 1-2 seconds after sniping them with a skillshot or flashing ontop of them. The longer you are gone and the more your group spreads out, the better chance they have of regrouping and picking you off 1 by 1 as you chase 1 or 2 people and get spread out.
