Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    I personally like this option as a start for newer TF's, can be very strong for a long portion of the game. Very good against champions you will need to sustain to live in lane. I think Doran is better if you are more comfortable with TF.
    USE THIS VERSUS AD Assassins like ZED or TALON, can be very helpful for sustain and dealing with their damage. Also, works nicely into zhonyas.
    The start I usually go^. Another standard start, if you are more comfortable with TF and who you are vsing in lane, this can give you good early game presence.

Core Items

    I like getting some doran's for sustain, but if you open Doran with 2 pots you could try to go lich bane or more core items faster, I like lich bane first right now!
    2ND BACK. IF YOU CAN POKE AND GANK TILL NEEDLESSLY LARGE ROD IT'S VERY RECOMMENED. Getting a needless on your 2nd back is huge, big ability power boost instead of getting many small things. Other items are option as well, but rod is most pref
    If assassin type zed/leblanc/fizz i would go zhonya, but for most everyone else including people like grag and ziggs work for dcap first. Lich is nice to have if you aren't getting blues and want to splitpush towers. Also just a nice item. Rylais usually high pick for me to give me tankiness and ap!
    Dcap or Zhonya's first, then lichbane second. Get the AP damage out then get lich. It's what I usually do. Always get zhonyas eventually as TF can be squishy and easy to target, so be care!
    Boots can change game to game. I usually go Sorcerer's shoes, but not always. Games I will go with something else will usually be merc vs a team with a lot of CC or a mid like veigar, etc. Sorc gives you good damage, but I can also see Lucidity having good purpose, cooldowns are big on TF and I can see them as viable (although I don't usually go that route, you can). Personally I wouldn't go mobi boots. I am already running movespeed and with upgraded boots you are pretty quick, the extra speed can be helpful, but it's not helpful enough to value it's worth over others.
    New Fav opener: Echo is so good, its like dcap and lichbane combined with both pieces, really like this item on TF.

Situational Items

    I wouldn't usually get these items over the 5 items in my core, those are more important IMO. But things like twin shadows to track down a fast team or deathfire for TONS of AP can be nice. Abyssal is good if you wanted to be more of a defense TF.. but wheres the fun in that. BANSHEES USUALLY THE BEST DEFENSIVE ITEM TO GET.

VS

Ahri

Medium

Usually just a farm lane, she can all in you if she hits her charm, but if you play smart and safe this shouldn't happen. If you can dodge her skillshots and chunk her down you can be okay. As with all midlaners look to gank and feed others!4.png14.png7.png

VS

Akali

Hard

This is medium-hard depending on how much TF you play. Start 1056.png2003.png and bully her pre-6, blue card her every time you can and be really annoying. Once she is 6 she is a LOT tougher, be ready to gold as she will jump on you. 3157_32.png is a must versus her also 7.png if you are scared. You can win if you get successful ganks. Also your ult can reveal her, so in teamfight ult just to see where she is!

VS

Anivia

Medium

Careful of her level 2 burst. Try to shove anivia into tower pre6 and avoid getting chunked, her lvl 2 is very strong. Anivia is one of the slowest mid's you will face. Use that to your advantage. Try to avoid her combo as she can chunk you relatively well. At level 6 she can shove to your tower with her ult, so try to shove on her and look for gank, remember how slow she is! tough, would recommend 3100_64.pngand split pushing!14.png  or 7.pngas well

VS

Annie

Medium

After 2 dorians get  3111_32.png as your first item. Movement to stay away, magic resist, help against her stun, this is a must early. Can be tough if you eat her burst. 1-5 you can be strong versus her if you can chunk her with your q's and hopefully your blue cards. She can be squishy if you're fed enough, not as scary as you may think. Once she's 6 be care and ready to roam as tibbers can hurt!4.png14.png if yo u want to try and kill her pre 6, with flash stun ignite combo, otherwise 7.png Recommended.

VS

Azir

Medium

This is a matchup I have played a few times, but more on the medium-hard side. Can shove you into tower fairly easily, the skill matchup is interesting because you can chunk him pretty good but he can chunk you pretty good. Play safe and try not to let him take your tower too early, or he can zone you out of ulting. 7.png might not be a bad idea here.

VS

Blitzcrank

Easy

Easy Medium depending on your ability to dodge his pulls. Don't be fooled blitz can do some damage! You should win this lane but if you keep eating his hook and knockup then it might not go so favorably for you! 14.png

VS

Brand

Easy

Brand doesn't feel that scary anymore. Try avoiding his skillshots and most importantly his stun! I don't play against brands much anymore but I would imagine you could farm easily and gank pretty good. Avoid clumping in teamfights and you should win.4.png14.png7.png

VS

Cassiopeia

Hard

Medium-Hard. A good cassiopeia can poke you and she can be a real pain. But if she messes up her ult you can win fights easily. Play safe vesus her, if she's not fed she isn't that usefull. Get your teammates fed and let them have kills and you can win the game, she is super squishy.7.png14.png your choice. If new to TF would reccomened barrier and playing passively. If you get behind, she can kill you every time in lane, passive farm and look for good gank opportunities, you are more useful lategame.

VS

Cho'Gath

Easy

Rare but easy lane. Although becoming more common at the moment, still more of a farm lane. He can get tough if he starts stacking his ult out of control as cho always has a surprised burst with feast, so careful. Don't get hit by his rupture and you will be fine. Will be a farm heavy lane but he is slow and you can gank and help other lanes, he can't14.png

VS

Diana

Hard

This one gets hard once she's 6 and has her ultimate. I don't mind facing her, but play passive because if she hit's you with her q she can ult to you (similiar to akali in a way) 3157_64.png Definitely need this and maybe this7.png to help bait her. One of the hardest matchups for TF.

VS

Ekko

Medium

Medium-Hard.I have only played Ekko a handful of times, but I would say this lane is more of a skill matchup, and how much you understand Ekko and Ekko understands Ekko. Personally, I would play this lane more passively and just look for ganks, instead of trying to get a kill. Although, make sure to try and card him when he goes to aa minions, but don't let him get his 3 stack on you, otherwise it will hurt! Play it safe and look for opportunities, this can be easy to hard MU depending on how you play it and how he plays it. Avoid letting him hit you 3 times in a row if you can. Usually not easy unless you get an early kill on him.

VS

Fiddlesticks

Easy

He can hurt unless you stun his drain. you can inturrput his drain and he is already super squishy! Make sure to ward when he is 6 as he will flash ult you. Definitely run ignite14.png, if low you could flash stun q him and kill him. Also think about 3157_32.png to counter his zhonyas

VS

Fiora

Medium

I haven't faced fiora mid before as TF but I have seen Fiora mid I would imagine your pre6 stronger than hers, and if she eats too many creeps trying to poke you you could have kill potential pre6. After 6 I see this lane could become hard for you as her all in can be strong and if she gets fed she can 2v1 you and your jungler. Try to poke her pre6 and get your advantage roaming. Will update if I play her.

VS

Fizz

Medium
7.png is pretty important, especially if new to TF. If you have played TF before and are comfortable with match up I recommend 14.png as you can kill him. If he jumps up and lands (his E) stun him and q him. If he q's you (he will dart towards and damage you) then card him, aa him, q him. Punish him for punishing you. Auto Attack him 1-5 and poke him down. You can win this lane if you play smart. You can win the game if you help other lanes.3157_32.pnggood vs fizz also 3100_32.png  is good versus him. After W'ing or Q'ing and auto can deal good damage to him with lich.

VS

Gragas

Medium

Not as much of a meta middle pick anymore. Can be annoying, but not nearly like old gragas. I imagine a mostly farm lane where you can abuse your ult and he can't I think you are favored here. If he ever waddles towards you for a minion or whatever, gold card him and punish him. At level 6 care of his ult misplacing you, but you can win this lane! 14.png Recommend ignite, you can kill him after he is a bit weak. Don't be afraid to flash+yellow card+q (wild card)+ ignite +auto to kill him! Not as hard as it sounds.

VS

Heimerdinger

Medium

Heimer is boring and can be hard. Definitely play passive and wait to gank. You will be much more useful late just try and not get hit by his turrets as they hurt. Passive farm and look to gank.14.png use ignite to kill that annoying man.

VS

Jarvan IV

Medium

I've seen it. Can be good but try to poke him down as he is melee champ. Dodge his e->q combo and you will be okay. At level 6 be somewhat scared as he can trap you and you don't have escapes. 3157_32.png First item after doran rings, the armor and saftey of hourglass is good.14.pnguse ignite in this matchup

VS

Jax

Medium

Haven't really faced Jax mid, but I think this would go very well for you. You can really bully him with your cards and pre-6 I think you have pretty strong edge, although if he jumps and stuns you he could chunk you, even still feels like you could trade back. Look for ganks, you can always stun jax and make his life hell, I like this for you.

VS

Jayce

Medium

Can be a medium to hard matchup depending on your ability to avoid skillshots. Jayce mid has insane burst and is quite a strong champion in my opinion. I would still recommened 14.png as he doesnt have too much escape and with a jungler you can kill him. I would highly recommend playing passively and just farm up as his poke can hurt, but your poke can hurt too. Avoiding his skillshots will be the deciding factor in if you win this lane!

VS

Karma

Medium

Karma is a mid I actually like just because she isn't meta and is a strong champion. I have medium as she has a stun and a heavy burst, which is definitely something to fear. Try not to get too poked down as she can shove to your tower. Once you get 6 your 6 is a lot stronger, so get your team some kills and come back to lane ahead.

VS

Karthus

Easy

You should win this lane as he is super squishy and doesn't have huge burst. If he eats too many of your q's or blue cards don't be afraid too try and flash kill him. Ganking can be good but his ult can give him free kills. Karth can be annoying but don't be scared of his laning. If he is taking lots of wraith camps punish by shoving his tower and look to gank! 14.pnguse ignite. 3157_32.png1st-3rd item, can be great counter to his ult.

VS

Kassadin

Medium

A not common pick anymore, still can be tough and I will leave everything I had written about this MU, but he shoudln't be as scary anymore, Medium MU now I would say. Play passive and look to gank, but he has a flash every 6 seconds so be careful. levels 1-5, blue card him when he silences you, push him to tower and make him farm under it. He is terrible at farming under tower so force him at tower and look to gank. Shove faster than he does, keep him csing mid and gank! One of the hardest for TF, but as always TF can be good versus everyone. His combo when he hits 6 is super dumb, silence and chunked for 1/3 your hp. Play passive and look to gank, but he has a flash every 6 seconds so be careful. levels 1-5, blue card him when he silences you, push him to tower would recommened 3157_32.png and 14.png Ignite over barrier because kass needs to die in teamfights. You can win this lane if played properly.

VS

Katarina

Medium

Try to poke her down before she hits 6, can be quite annoying. Blue cards can handle her pretty well but she can jump away from your cards. Would play someone cautious and would also go 21.png7.png in this matchup, don't let her get her resets. ALSO MAKE SURE YOU SAVE GOLD CARD FOR HER IN TEAMFIGHT, STOP THAT ULT, stunning Katarina late game will win you the game, it's really that easy.

VS

Kayle

Medium

Another one of those annoying champs but is also super squishy. Has a tough time dodging your q's you will be fine.She will try and slow you and then e onto you. Fall back when she is running at you and try to use wild cards (q) to chunk her down.  A good kayle can be tough, buy most definitely managable. 14.png recommended.
In teamfights try to focus her with a card  combo, if she uses ult on herself it's good for everyone on your team.

VS

Kennen

Easy

This is a matchup you don't see too often, but I think you are quite favored here. You can chunk him down pre6, look for a 4.png14.png combo to kill him after hitting him a few times with q's and w's. Can be pesky to kill but you are able to shove him into his tower where he struggles to farm, push it up and gank, this game is yours!

VS

Kha'Zix

Medium

Careful early game as kha will go all in levels 2-3 most likely. try and chunk him with auto's and q's and outsustain him. Very squishy and can be killed, but dont underestimate his burst. Would thing about getting 3157_32.png but i also like3100_32.png for the auto attack damage. Would go 14.pngversus him. REMEMBER TO ULT IN TEAMFIGHTS, YOU CAN REVEAL WHERE KHA IS GOING!!

VS

LeBlanc

Hard

Pretty annoying champ as she can nuke you. Definitely winable though. Would ask for an early gank to help you, but if you don't get it it's not necessary. Play safe and harass with your wild card (q). Try to chunk her down with your cards so she will be scared to all in.  Would recommened 21.png7.pngfor newer TF's. If you feel you can hit your cards you can def kill her with 14.png. 3157_32.pngalso pretty important item.

VS

Lissandra

Medium

She can do pretty good damage and is pretty underrated in my opinion. Don't face her much at all so can't comment too much. She can chunk you and shove, so this can be a challenge. Work on farming as I don't see you winning a 1v1 vs liss unless incredibly poked down. Just can say be care of her counter roaming as she can follow fast. Recommend pushing her into tower as her AA damage sucks and you can make her miss a ton of cs. Would def recommend 3157_32.png and ignite/barrier depends on what your comfortable with.

VS

Lulu

Medium

Medium to Hard. Haven't played the new lulu but I know she can deal some pretty good burst. I  would imagine she could be a tough opponent cause she can stop your ult, can deal good damage and can shield herself. One thing that happens to lulu though is she can become oom (out of mana). Notice where her mana is at and see what you can do! 14.pnghere I would think.

VS

Lux

Easy

One of the easiest matchups you have. Dont get stunned by her when she is level 6 because she can ult you, but if not fed can't kill you with one combo. She is VERY squishy and if she eats too many cards you can def flash and kill her! You can snowball versus her fairly easily! Also mana issues on lux, use it! 14.png100% Many Lux's have been running 7.png21.png so be careful for her bait.

VS

Malzahar

Medium

Pretty annoying champion. Would play passive and farm. His ult can be tough and his little bug can hurt and do pretty good damage. Stay away from minions so you don't get hurt by it. Would actually recommend 21.png here as his ult damage can be a lot, enough where you need this to survive. If you can chunk him though you can control the lane!

VS

Master Yi

Easy

Pretty out of the meta but can be an easy lane. Just make sure when he alpha strikes to you that you card him (blue/gold), auto him and q him. make him not want to alpha strike you. CARE of early level cheese by him as thats where he can snowball a lane. 1-4 is when you need to sustain and tradeback versus him then you get the edge. Would go 14.png in this matchup

VS

Mordekaiser

Medium

Another one I don't see often but mord can be strong. Try to poke him when his shields not up! Make this a passive lane and look to feed your teammates. I would recommend 21.png here as his ult can kill hurt.  Need to play it more to comment further, sorry.

VS

Morgana

Medium

Morg is actually a champ i use when someone goes TF on me. If played well she can be a problem. Care of her burst because she will ult you and then bind you and you may be dead. You can win levels 1-5 and levels 6-18 if you avoid her bind, it's the biggest part about her. Would try to shove early as her AA's are weak and you can make her miss farm14.png here

VS

Nidalee

Medium

Easy-hard depending on her ability to hit spears and your ability to dodge them. If you stay behind minions and not get poked down you can win this easy! Once she is 6 cougar can hurt though and she can outsustain with blue, those heals man!  Might recommend 3065_32.png depending on how fed nid is and how much ap their team has. Not as a first item but down the road to deal with her poke and your health. CARE OF NID BARRIER BAITS! Would go 14.png. This can be tough as her ap heal is for so much she will start out sustaining. Can be annoying.

VS

Orianna

Medium

I actually like facing oriana. Her ult is pretty easy to tell when it's coming. Another similiar to grag  where stay away from your minions and force her q's on minions and not on you. You can chunk her if she doesnt dodge you q's! Another champ that can have mana issues, take notice! Would def go 14.png

VS

Pantheon

Medium

Not usually mid but his spears can hurt. His ult can be good, but yours is much faster so if you have a successful gank it can be too late for him to ult. You get the edge late game when his q's don't hurt. Would recommend3157_32.png soon as armor will help. 14.png also

VS

Riven

Hard

Eh can range from easy to hard depending on the riven and your ability. A good riven can hit you pretty hard as you're very squishy, but you can poke her down early! Care of an early flash all in from her around level 3-5, and level 6 on.. She can burst but you can roam, use it. 3157_32.png very important.

VS

Ryze

Easy

An easier lane for TF as he has been hurt by nerfs. You can certanitly chunk him down 1-5 but once he gets rod of ages(if he does) he can become a little harder to kill. Will most likely take teleport which means he has 1 less summoner to use mid, make the most of it! Also, TP cooldown much higher than TF ult, ult more than he can TP!14.png here!

VS

Swain

Medium

If you dodge his trap you will be just fine! His ult can make him hard to kill, but he is slow, push out your lane and gank! Would recommend 3157_32.png for his burst, not necessarily first item but definitely don't wait too long to get it! Also 14.png is great vs swain!

VS

Syndra

Medium

Medium-Hard. Can be tough if she lands her abilities as her burst is huge! Go barrier if you are worried about what she can do to you! You can chunk her but another passive lane, feed your other lanes and win the game! You will need a 3157_32.png sometime, not first buy but 2nd or 3rd as you don't want to get caught by syndra and die so fast its already a 5v4. 14.png only if you're comfortable with TF

VS

Talon

Hard

Would start 1029_32.png2003_32.png here. Another medium to hard because he can burst you pretty hard. Like most use this to your advantage. when he jumps on you and silences you card him and q him and make him not want to do that. Another AD mid so 3157_32.png is a smart choice. DONT FORGET TO ULT AND REVEAL HIM IN TEAMFIGHTS! DON'T LET HIM RUN AWAY!14.png you can kill him! 3.pngIs also really good

VS

Tristana

Hard

AP trist can be really hard as her burst is insane and can def kill you level 2. Only played it once but it was brutal, her E at lvl 1 will chunk you to 1/4hp. Would def recommend 21.png and wait for her to fall off. Be very careful as she has huge burst.

VS

Twisted Fate

Hard

The ONLY hard counter to TF is.. TF! Seriously you can win every lane as TF by winning other lanes, you're a mid jungler, use your ult!

VS

Veigar

Medium

Medium/Hard Can be rough if you get caught by his stuns a lot. Make sure you dont get stunned at level 6 as his ult can crush you! Would still recommend 14.png and maybe something defensive early! 3001_32.png can be very good and A MUST IS3111_64.png helps you get out of stuns and survive his ult. Defensive vs veigar isn't the worst thing, you can def win like this then some AP. He is slow and make sure to gank!

VS

Viktor

Medium

Viktor is really popular right now, good damage and strong shoving ability. Medium MU, can be easy if you get good ganks can be hard if he gets big. He can hurt early if you don't dodge his abilities. Your ability to roam over him is the reason you will win this game. He has good shoving abilities so do your best.  Don't get caught in his stun as it could be death for you. Like veigar 3111_32.png is not a bad idea versus him. Little MR and better ability versus his stun. 14.png7.png either, would use ignite myself but if you're scared you can't dodge his abilities barrier is okay.

VS

Wukong

Hard

This could be a tough matchup as most AD champions are vs TF. This is a matchup I would definitely start 1029_32.png2003_32.png and sustain your way. He has one of the strongest level 1-3's in the game and you can get poked. His ult can cancel your TP and his teamfight is pretty strong. If you can poke him down don't be afraid to ult to reveal his clone, as well as ulting in teamfights so your team sees his clone and takes him down. Could be a tough matchup and I would recommened 7.png

VS

Xerath

Medium

The new patch has made xerath one of if not the easiest champ to play. Strong abilities and poke with crazy range on ult. However his aa is weak and you can shove lane on him. Practice dodging his abilities as he is charging up! Also keep in mind his ult is very easy to dodge (IMO) so don't be afraid to gank cause his long ult range! You can win lane and roam, not that bad of a matchup if you dodge his abilites. 3111_32.png can be a very nice choice, if you get stuck in his cc you will die. 14.png not for xerath necessarily as he can be hard to kill, but to help lanes (bot pref) get kills!

VS

Yasuo

Medium

I don't like saying hard because I think TF can do well versus all champs, but yasuo is very stupid. Ban him if you can.. You can outroam but he can deal absurd damage and if he lands his ult on you you might as well be looking at shop cause you are probably dead. PASSIVE AND GANK! A big item here is 3157_32.png and 14.png if you get his shield down he is actually  pretty squishy! But try not to get baited by his wind wall...

VS

Zed

Medium

Easy-Medium. Depends on how much TF you play and how much zed he plays. Most would think zed counters TF, but I've seen a fair share of zed players this season and last and he is very beatable. Many summoners are good here. 21.png14.png3.png7.pngIf you wait 1/2sec after he ults you and you pop your barrier you will live 9/10times.  It is great at nullifying his damage and really takes away his level 6 advantage. After your doran rings get 3157_32.png and use it when he ults you. With these two you will be effectively removing his ult from him and you will win.

VS

Ziggs

Medium

Dodge his q's and he is not too bad. HIs waveclear can be very annoying when you want to push, would recommend potentially splitting vs ziggs (depending on your comp). In teamfights if you have 3157_32.png or if you see ziggs out of position you can flash stun and q him, he is very very squishy and is easy to kill if you can get ahold of ziggs. Not as bad as you think. 14.png if you can dodge skillshots otherwise 21.png

VS

Zilean

Medium

Be careful not to get poked down as he can hurt with his bombs. Try to poke him down as best you can pre6 because you can flash stun->card->ignite-> dead. He can bait you once he is 6 and has his ult. Watch on his mana because his AA's don't hurt too bad, shouldn't be that bad of a matchup!

VS

Zyra

Medium

Her damagae is very strong and dont underrate her. Wouldn't be against going something a little defensive like 3001_32.png after dorans to nullify some of her damage. She is slow so don't be afraid to gank! Try not to get rooted by her as it can hurt. 3111_32.png3157_32.png are both very good options for zyra. 14.png as she is very squishy you can kill her easy enough..

TF IS A MID JUNGLER YOU CAN CARRY Back to Top

Please look at EACH matchup as I spent a lot of time telling you what summoners to use and what items to get in each midlane matchup!  Just because he isn't in the meta doesnt mean he isn't good right now, he is! Dont be afraid to ult! Also, highly priortize botlane, more kills down there and a bigger factor to carry (adc+support compared to top). Keep morale high telling them gj on ganks that are successful! If you're scared of new mids burst take barrier (go to champ matchups, I have what to take and thoughts on each matchup in there). Keep in mind you're TF, A MID JUNGLER! You can provide double the ganks as the other team and you can give your team great map vision. Not sure if they are at baron? ULT! Not sure if they are in your jungle and you have no wards? ULT! Don't let his winrate or your teammates deceive you, you can be very successful with TF. Best of luck out there and make the opponents wish they banned TF again! In general once you get comfortable with TF you should be using ignite mostly. You get a huge upgrade in kill potential and it is very useful. Especially once you get zhonyas you're relatively safe anyways1

Pro's and Con's Back to Top

Pro's

- Great waveclear
- Ability to catch someone lategame and win
- If played correctly, a strong champion in teamfights.
- Great roam, ability to feed other lanes... wish his first ult was shorter, got to make sure it's a good one!
- Unsuspecting damage. People don't expect TF's damage, which can make him very valuable.



Con's

- Squishy, a little to easy to get caught by an ult like vi, leona, mal, etc.
- His first ult is really important as the cooldown is so long now it feels that it needs to be worthwhile.
- Laning can be tough more often than not when first starting to play TF.
- People doubt his ability.. seriously. I have played more games lately when I get a "TF...." prove them wrong! He is still strong!


How to ULT / When to ULT Back to Top

This is crucial when learning Twisted Fate. My biggest piece of advice is to go for it. The more you are indecisive and not ulting the more time you are wasting Twisted Fates mid game power. If you are 50/50 should I ult should I not ult then more likely then not ult. You will make some mistakes but with those mistakes you will learn what you should do in different situations. You will weed out the mistakes and figure out what you should be doing. Ping on my way and ult to a lane! Be aggressive and help your team get fed! Dont be indecisive, go and get some kills!

Who am I? My Stats Back to Top

 MY SEASON 4 TF STATS

ALsKWJ2.jpg

These are my TF stats as of April 14/2014. It's hard to keep this high because one loss takes me down, but this just shows how well you can do with TF. I am Chouse52 and I just fell in love with Twisted Fate last season. I started in Bronze III and TF has pretty much carried me to diamond. If you practice TF a lot he will reward you with lots of wins, he is so strong and people forget about it! Twisted Fate all the way!

Early Game Back to Top

For Twisted Fate in General you will want more often than not play passively. A key thing to remember is that your strength does not come from your 1v1 potential, but rather the ability to feed other lanes and get fed off of it. Versus champs like 238_64.png84_64.png105_64.png80_64.png121_64.png7_64.png you need to be careful early game to not give them first blood. If you do it is okay.. just makes your job quiet a bit harder as they strive off kills, you don't give them kills you win the game. THE BIG THING TO FOCUS ON AND PRACTICE IS YOUR FARMING WITH TF. You are someone who won't get the lane kills so cs'ing is a huge part of your game. Learn to live and blue card and outcs you opponent, once you get more items you will win lane.

Mid Game Back to Top

Once you're 6 look to roam, but be care of trying to ult before first back as you aren't that strong and you might have low mana. If your first ult fails and your second ult fails it is okay.. it's not the end of the world.. You just have to try to focus and get the one big gank that maybe results in tower + drag + kills. The more successful every gank you have is will decide the game. You're jungler gets a kill top? Well go get a kill bot! With TF you might as well have another jungler because you're there to help your team like your jungler. Personally I priortize botlane as they have more ceiling and more chances for kills, but lately bots have been more passive and tops become my friend. A fed TF is a strong TF. If you can give kills to laners it is suggested by just pressing "s" and stoping to let them get kill, otherwise taking isn't so bad because you can deal HUGE damage. Practice your cs'ing to get to mid game then practice ulting, you're almost there to be a good Twisted Fate.

Late Game Back to Top

Late game is important as you can be the carry and will most likely be the enemy focus (hopefully). If they are focusing you it means you did something right in the early and mid game, which is a plus, but be care of where you position. Your cards can deal HUGE damage late game and you can have some really strong poke and waveclear. By this time you should have zhonyas as you are crucial to your team. If there is an enemy adc that is pushing a lane by themselves, ULT AND KILL THEM! If you are fed or they aren't you can mostly ult and kill them very easily. Stay in the back and try to not get focused, not only is TF great at dealing damage, you can peel for your adc like no other. If they are fed peel for them! Gold/red card depending on the multitude of people coming at them and deal damage and kill their brusiers/assassins. If you and your adc are alive you will win. TF has so much more potential than people give him credit for, if you are pushing mid and someone a little far out on the other team FLASH STUN AND CATCH THEM! You can do what it takes to win late game and you are a huge carry. LEARN TF AND YOU CAN CLIMB THE LADDER, I CAN GUARANTEE IT.

NEW TF BUFF Back to Top

Now I know they just made it so while you're holding a card it lasts longer.. but it has been huge. Before you would really have to card, get it and be in range to hit them, otherwise they could walk away and your card would wear off and you would just auto-attack them. Now you can catch people easier, in lane you are able to card and dance like you are going to blue card them, then hit minion. The extra time change is something I'm really enjoying and hoping for more TF buffs!
