Summoner Spells Back to Top

My Friends!

Quick update to my guide for S7 - I still do not play much as I am still studying. Anyway Z<3 duel potential went doooown but he has much bigger impact on team fights now. Nothing much changed from the build.


12.png
Recommended when:
  • you have great map awareness and want help other lines (Kudos for Roman for pointing that out) 
  • facing counter champion
  • facing champion you are not sure how to line against
  • you suspect opponent will freeze minions under the his tower
  • especially consider it against champions like 80_64.png,54_64.png,57_64.png,98_64.png,27_64.png
!REMEMBER!  Z<3 can interrupt 12.pngor  80_64.png ,98_64.png ulties with his e.jpg  !REMEMBER!


14.png
Recommended when:
  • in 78% of the cases because as you want to secure kills AND when you are NOT in high ELO*
  • i pick it to dominate the lane BUT it is recommended to take 12.png
*(way too many times I faced the situation when my opponent run away with just 10hp and all I could do is to watch because I had 12.png, it also stops them farming under the tower with little life so in many cases they will just burn their teleport to go back to line) 

New Runes Back to Top

Masteries Back to Top

***** Why These Masteries?*****

  • 6% CD at the start, max CD 45%
  • 8% stronger heals from your bloobs
  • extra damage when you are all made of resists

*****  How the SECRET build WORKS?! *****


What OUTZ<3 means? 
It means that whatever damage they make to you, you will recover in a few moments. With 30%CD your w.jpg is on 3.5s cooldown + you remember that collecting any cell reduce the cooldown by 1 second, right? So with just with few items your ONE cell will regenerate more than 100hp! 
Season 6 is VERY generous for Z<3 :)

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    My usual start. Why shoes you ask? Reason is simple you need mobility to pick up your goo and be able to harass your opponent!
    It is an alternative start against melee champions/if you are not sure about the match up or your are afraid of your opponent auto attacks.
    Wards SAVE lives or two lives if your passive is up!
    When I see Zac with this items I want to cry! NEVER BUY THEM!
    !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!REMEMBER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 12 creeps are worth a champ kill!!
    I recently started to use refillable potion instead of normal potions with great success. I decided to do so after reading article here: http://www.leagueoflegendsmath.com/Articles/Starting_Items_Comparison.html *recommended reading!*

Core Items

    In the most cases Kindlegem should be your first item. Now you think - WoW this build is shit! Man you are crazy! Well I am crazy about Z<3 and I know what works on him. It will give you 20% CDR it means you can use you W every 2 second if you pick up blob it means you can stay on your line forever!
    Build Chain Vest and later build it Thornmail against ad when you are against AD champions
    Kindlegem and Lucidity boots are your first items 3rd item depending on the match-up against; AD - get armor cloth AP - get Mantle
    Your DMG items go for Void first. (AFTER completing your 2 defensive items)
    Against AP champions build Cawl (hood) and build into Spirit.
    Full Build - with this build you will one shot adc if you land your e and ulti on him. Last items whatever you wish. If they have heavy ad build Raduins if not something with MR :)

Situational Items

    Z<3 really does not like these items! so care if your opponents have them..

***** How to build Z<3?! *****


This is the first question you should ask yourself when you see the loading screen:

Capture55.JPG

So lets say you line with a champion you have no problem with like 62_64.png but you also know that in their jungler is 60_64.pngor32_64.png and mid for example 134_64.png you will start your build from 3158_32.png,3211_32.png,1011_32.png or 3158_32.png,1057_32.png,1011_32.png or 3067_32.png this way there is a great probability that no only you survive a gank but you will manage to get double kill!
Sure you need to use your brain when applying this tactic so when you are facing 38_64.png ,13_64.pngtop or mid and enemy jungler is 64_64.png and top/mid 238_64.png you still want to build against 38_64.png ,13_64.png first!
(champions are just as examples to explain the logic)

*****  I am THE GUM now I NEED DMG! *****


Okay so you also might wonder why I buy 3135_32.png and not 3151_32.png or some other crap.

Lets be honest here!

Z<3 is NOT A SNOWBALLING
champion, Z<3 is MID/LATE GAME champion and his MAIN ROLE is to PEEL for your paper buddies, CONTROL the team fights and just IN THE END do as MUCH DMG as possible to the enemy team. (and survive!:)
 
I do not buy 3151_32.png because if assuming I lane against a tank it wont help me much to kill him not to mention if your opponent is smart he will buy MR anyway. If I am facing paper champions I will kill them anyway without any damage items. (remember we have 30CDR so we can recover very fast!) 
  Z<3 needs this item in the team fights. Z<3 will land in the middle of the enemy team. Z<3 will w.jpg and you ulti and with 3135_32.png it does not  really matter how much MR they have. Z<3 will be able to bring the whole team down (including tanks) to the half health! I have seen ADCs buying 1057_32.png and I was the only 'AP' champion in the team.

Also lets assume for a second that enemy ADC bought 3102_32.png with 3151_32.png  you wont kill him 1vs1 with 3135_32.png you will.

TIP:  if do not believe just check your dmg after the game!

TIP2: When you take Z<3 jungle buy 3151_32.png!!

!!!! MATH behind the BLOBS !!!!!

After chatting with a person who mians Top Zac (Diamond 2 NA) I decided to do the little comparison of damages between my build and his build. I took 10 WON games from both sides with similar game length and compare our damage output against the best damage output in the game and calculated damage output per seconds per build. Results are fascinating! Have a look:
zzzz.JPG

As you can see on average my damage equals 85% of the best damage output per game (14.2/16.7) when the other builds with Liandrys equals only 68% (9.8/14.4) of the best damage output per game! 
What makes it even more fascinating is the fact that the difference between best damage output per seconds in each of the tables is 13% which makes it very close! 

It means my build is has at least 18% to 31% BETTER DAMAGE OUTPUT!!!!!!!!

Aatrox

Hard

I have not played against him many times but if he is good he will destroy you.. his sustain and dps is just to much for you. Try not to die and focus on farming from the safe distance!

VS

Ahri

Medium

VS

Akali

Easy

Not a very difficult match up, you should be able to kill her with at lvl3 and once you have 3158_32.png3211.pngit is going to  be almost impossible for her to kill you. Just be careful when she marks you with akalimota.png and try not to get hit by her aa.

VS

Alistar

Easy

VS

Annie

Easy

Mobility is a key - she will poke you with AA (has a longer range then your  but try to play smart and keep distance and poke her with your skills, once you are lvl 3 you can go all in and you will out damage her. If there is not opportunity to go all in wait till you have 3065.png and she is dead.

TIP! Annie's auto-attacks (AA) have longer range than your zacQ.png!

VS

Cassiopeia

Easy

If somehow somebody will be silly enough to pick her top... you will have feed fest..
First 3 lvl are hard..but once you have 3211.pngyou can go all in.. just be aggressive coz he can not do much against you in close distance. Her range and spam hurts but once you close the gap gg! When you are lvl 6 and you ulti is not on cd it is kill for you :)

VS

Cho'Gath

Medium

VS

Darius

Medium

He is very annoying champion to play against. When he gets 3044_32.png he is super fast so keep the safe distance and try to focus on farming. He will push his line a lot so he is an easy target for your jungler. Ask for a gank at the start! Also he will dive to try to kill you with his ulti so do not stay on the line when you have less than 40% of your health and no help is coming.

VS

Dr. Mundo

Medium

You will kill him pre sadism.png but later will be very difficult. Mobility is a key here so you need to try to help other lines as much as possible (take 12.png) and farm like crazy!

VS

Ekko

Medium

VS

Fiora

Medium

VS

Fizz

Easy

I can say Zac with my build pretty much counters him. He does not have range attacks and if he tries jump on you he will suffer much more dmg than you (not to mention you still have your goo to collect). I would build normal so after 3158_32.png get 1057_32.png or if you feel confident go with 3067_32.png

The only time when he can hurt you is when he has 3165_32.png.

VS

Gangplank

Medium

VS

Garen

Easy

One of the easiest lines for you just follow the normal build. If you killed him once or twice before first back you can buy some dmg like 1026_32.png after 3158_32.png


TIPs - 
- try to hit him every so often so he wont use his passive.
- remember about his Ulti when you fight with him:

His Ulti COOLDOWN: 160 / 120 / 80
  • Magic Damage: 175 / 350 / 525 (+ 28.57% / 33.33% / 40% of target's missing health)

So lets look at the numbers:

Capturegar.JPG

LVL6
a) assuming you have 3158_32.png+3067_32.png
b) assuming you have 3158_32.png + 1011_32.png

LVL 16
assuming you have 3158_32.png+ 3065_32.png+3068_32.png


VS

Gnar

Medium

I really do not know if it is easy, medium or hard at this stage. I lined against Gnar just twice and both were pretty easy. The only thing to remember is to keep safe distance when he has big form because as his cc is just too much.
Otherwise I noticed he is not so hard to kill in little form and usually he is very aggressive pusher so it is easy to gank him when he is top.

Here is one game against Gnar from Platinium III.
(you need LOL replay to open)
http://www.filedropper.com/zacvsgnarplat

VS

Gragas

Easy

If it happens you should not have any problems killing him before first back!
DO NOT IGNORE HIS DMG PLS as  gragasdrunkenrage.png+gragasbodyslam.png can hurt!
just keep safe distance and h arras him with your zacQ.png

Once you have 3211.pnghe cannot do much.

VS

Graves

Medium

I did not have a chance to face Graves often but play style is very similar to any range ADc. Only thing you need to remember is that his shots do lots of damage so try to stay behind the minions and farm + poke with zacQ.png.
Once you have 3158.png and 1029.png you can go all in with 14.png. You can build 3075.png if you feel his damage to much.

VS

Illaoi

Medium

It is not a very hard match up if you keep the distance and poke her down. Just do not trader with her in the close combat and try to destroy her 'plants' when she is not in close to you. Very annoying thing is that Z>3's abilities does not damage her 'plants' so you have to autoattack them. Mobility is a key here if you will be avoiding her skillshot and poke her from distance you will be fine.

Remember that her ulti heals her so save your 14.png!

VS

Irelia

Easy

VS

Janna

Hard

She is the most annoying support in the game for Z<3, it is extremly difficult to engage with her being close to the adc. Her howlinggale.png cancels your zacE.png

VS

Jarvan IV

Easy

VS

Jax

Medium

It is really hard to estimate the difficulty of this matchup. 

There are good Jax and they are bad Jax.. believe me you will feel the difference straight away! Anyway in both cases you wont have too much problems as long as you remember to you keep harassing him and avoid exchanging the punches in the close range. 

When he tries to go for last hit slow him down with Q. 
If he tries to jump on you use Q+ W and back off. 
If you are close to your tower you can use E + W and back off.
(always remember to pick up you goo). 
If he finish building 3153_32.png be extremely careful and play very defensive as he will be able to kill you! 


He wont build MR so if you feel like he is 'bad' Jax and you even killed him before first back you can go with 3136_32.png to snowball.


VS

Jayce

Medium

VS

Karthus

Easy

VS

Kassadin

Easy

You are actually his counter!
Before he will reach lvl 6 you will be able to kill him once or twice..
After 6 he is not big problem either.. normal build 3158_32.png,3067_32.png and you will be able to get regnerate all the life he took from your goo.

If he has half of his health and is in the middle of the lane wait for his ulti and go all in followed with 14.png (if you have it) and it is kill for you..

VS

Katarina

Easy

you counter her

VS

Kayle

Medium

Recently very popular, with the new items he hurts a lot especially when you jump on him with your combo he will slow you down and wont let you escape. Rush 3211.png and 3065.png

I would suggest poking him form a distance and wait for the opportunity to go all in. It would be wonderful if you could kill him before he goes back the first time. He is extremely good with farming and will focus on CS if you let him be he is gonna get very big.

VS

Kha'Zix

Easy

VS

Lee Sin

Easy

VS

Lulu

Medium

It is not a hard matchup but she is very difficult to kill and will keep the distance from you. You might want to take 12.png so you options to help other lines. Like in many other cases mobility is a key but be careful when you go all in because of her ulti and shield.
You might want to build 3065.png after 3158.png and she wont be able to kill you. Just try not to push and wait for jungler to come, you are much stronger mid and late game then she is so focus on farming :)

VS

Lux

Medium

Normal start 1001_32.png, first back 3158_32.png,1057_32.png.
When you have these two items you can easly kill her.
If you are ahead and there is no pressure from the jungler on the next back you can buy some dmg 1026_32.png.
All you need to remember is to move constantly and force her to try to hit you with her spells. (if she does not have ad runes her autoattacks do not do much dmg to you) If she hits with spell remember to keep safe distance so she wont be able to hit you with autoattack and use her passive.

When you dodged her spell, kite her so you can hit her with q.jpg or if you have wards/jungler is not close e.jpg+w.jpg+q.jpg +w.jpgcombo.
If she has half health you can go all in just remember about her shield so you do not tower dive with low health when it is not on cooldown!

VS

Malphite

Easy

One of the easiest lines for you just follow the normal build. If you killed him once or twice before first back you can buy some dmg like 1026_32.png after 3158_32.png.

If he has 12.png try to E on him when he is using it.
Even if you somehow lost your line (mhm) do not worry in teamfights Zac > Mal big time.

VS

Maokai

Medium

He is not such a big problem for you as your health regeneration is better than his.  You want to get 1057_32.png after 3158_32.png because at the start you WILL feel his op dmg. When he builds MR it is going to be very very difficult to kill him. Also I do not like him because he has more impact on teamfights than you so it is important to shut him down early! Ask for ganks and it should be easy as he loves to push his line. 

VS

Master Yi

Easy

One of the easiest lines for you just follow the normal build. If you killed him once or twice before first back you can buy some dmg like 1026_32.png after 3158_32.png.

TIPS:
Do not push your line to his turrent. This way you wont let him farm becasue of soon as he gets 3153_32.png you have a problem.
You probably want to buy 3143_32.png3075_32.png if they also have AD jungler.

VS

Mordekaiser

Medium

VS

Nasus

Easy

Start with 1001_32.png and just focus on farming..you can poke as much as you wont as he wont be able to kill you. You can easly kill him before he reaches lvl 6! .

If Nasus is good he will start his build with 3211_32.png as his first item. It is going to be very hard to kill him so just outfarm him and be annoying as much as possible.

My normal build is 3158_32.png,3067_32.png and with this items you can stay on your line forever.

If he goes with dmg iteams first you will be able to feed on him. If you see his is bad and his jungler is not very active you can have some fun and start with 3136_32.png and later follow normal build or finish 3151_32.png after 3158_32.png.

*Tips - when he goes all and he ultis and you are close to his tower:

a) first think if you know where is his jungler
b) ask yourself if you can kill him

if any answered to any of these questions: no just Q him and move to the bushes to see what is going on. If jungler is not coming move and you know you can kill him go to c) if jungler is coming ulti away or E away or both.

c) just pretend you are running away - slow him down with q and w and kite him - wait untill his ulti is down and than go all in

You do not have to worry about his stacks as you can easly peel him off from your team and you will do much more dmg to enemy team then he will.

VS

Nautilus

Medium

Very hard to kill due to his CC and shield. Mobility is a key, you can try to kill him before first back later it will be almost impossible. Focus on farming and build 3211.pngafter 3158.png.

VS

Nidalee

Medium

VS

Olaf

Hard

It is the champion that counters you. Fortunately you do not see good Olafs very often. Does not mean you can ignore his as his true dmg is very very painful and with his ulti he can just tower dive and shred your goo. Same as with Riven key to the victory/not feeding is mobility. His Axe is skill shot so try to avoid it as much as possible and harras him from the distance. Normal start 1029.png and later 1031.png/3068.png.
Try not to feed him and ask for ganks. Never push your line and focus on farming as much as possible as later your input into the team fights will be much higher than his. (as long as he is not to much fed)

He does not have CC so if you are in the mid of the lane and he wants to go all in just your zacE.png and go under your tower - he cannot do anything about it - currently it is a farming lane because he wont be able to kill you nor you will be able to kill him.

VS

Pantheon

Medium

Start with 1029_32.png and if he Q hurts from lvl 1 rush 3068.png
He is not so difficult to kill if you let him push his line and freez it next to the tower. He does not have escape so every gank is kill for you or your jungler.
DO NOT TRADE WITH HIM AND ALWAYS KEEP DISTANCE!
Also if he is 3/4 health you can go all in and you will kill him. Just be careful and remember about his passive so try not to overextend and always go back when your health is low.

VS

Poppy

Easy

She cannot do much against you, just do not get caught close to the wall so she wont poppyheroiccharge.png you as it hurts. Poke with with q and with lvl 3 you can go all in! If you did not kill her before lvl 6 probably without help of the jungler you wont kill her - so focus on farming and when possible try to roam mid. 

VS

Rammus

Easy

If you wont let him sit on your face he cannot do absolutely anything in this matchup.. he even does not have an ability to hurt you and you deal ap damage.. just do not sit to much under his tower as you will get ganked a lot..

VS

Renekton

Medium

He is demanding opponent for Zac. You need to have your mobility and be able do dodge his skills as much as you can because they hurt! If you are not careful he can burn half of your health with full combo. Start with 1001_32.png use your q.jpg to last hit +harras and do not get too close! When you get 3158_32.png + 1031_32.png it will get easier and you can actually try to kill him. 

After lvl 6 it will be very difficult to trade and survive his full combo (it can take half of your health) focus on farming.

VS

Rengar

Easy

One of the easiest lines for you just follow the normal build. If you killed him once or twice before first back you can buy some dmg like 1026_32.png after 3158_32.png.

Just remember to keep a safe distance from the bushes and do not let him hit you when he has 5 stacks.

VS

Riven

Easy

Season 6 is it very easy lane.. as long as you do not feed when you have 3068.png he cannot kill you!

It is one of the hardest lines for you.

The general rule is to poke and never come close unless you are going all in. 
zac%20vs%20riv.JPG
YOU ALWAYS NEED TO BE IN THE FRONT OF HIM having your turret behind your back.
!not closer than your Q range! 
if you break this - you are dead :)

but if you play it smart you can get your first kill at lvl3. 
Start with 1001_32.png and get 1011_32.png or 1031_32.png on your first back. 
If you got first kill and have extra money buy 1052_32.png as he probably wont be buying any MR at this stage of the game.



Here is an example of bad Riven: (or good Zacy!:)
(you need LOL Replay to open)
http://www.filedropper.com/zacvsrivengoldv

VS

Ryze

Easy

You can easy kill him at before he gets 3027_32.png later he becomes problematic. 

Do not let him farm and poke him as much as you can. 
When you are lvl 3 you can get your first blood. 
To get first blood wait for him to be 40% health and go all in.
If you failed no worries he will fear you now anyway. 
First back if possible get 3211_32.png if not possible 1033_32.pngand 1028_32.png
Once you have 1033_32.png or 3211_32.png is killing time! 
Poke him down to half heath and go all in when your ulti is up. 
Always remember to collect your blobs and keep your health high! 

VS

Shyvana

Easy

VS

Singed

Medium

I really do not like Singed matchup. It is not very difficult but can be very annoying.
If you allow him to kite you he can kill you. Also good Singed will roam and will be extremely difficult to catch/kill. Focus on farming as much as possible and put some pressure on his line so he wont roam or proxy. In most cases you will easily outfarm him.

Most of Singeds take 12.png + 6.pngso you have to make a call and decide what you want to do. If you want to kill him take 14.png and if you want to follow his ganks take 12.png.

Normal start with 1001_32.png, first back 3158_32.png and if he hurts 1057_32.png if not 3067_32.png.

After rework he is extremely tanky so this lane is about farm because you will be only to kill him before first back. I would take 12.png for this match up.
Normal start with 1001_32.png and potions.
You need to keep moving your Z<3 and keep the distance from him so he wont hit you with his shield and this skill which shots minions at you :) you can also interrupt his q wit your e so use it. At the end of the day you have much bigger impact on the team fights then he does so as I said before just farm.

he is annoying as hell.. so much resist and so much dmg.. I actually do not know how to play against him :) just farm and ask for help :)

VS

Talon

Easy

Very easy line... You are able to kill him at lvl 3. When you get 3158_32.png+3751.png he cannot do much..

VS

Teemo

Easy

Start with 1001_32.png poke with Q - play agressive and you will be able to kill him at lvl 3 with full combo..
If he is AP go  1057_32.png, 3211_32.png  and you easly kill him even without your ulti!
Later each time when you have ulti poke a little and go all in and he is dead..

VS

Trundle

Easy

One of the easiest lines for you just follow the normal build. If you killed him once or twice before first back you can buy some dmg like 1026_32.png after 3158_32.png.

DO NOT LET HIM KILL YOU AT THE START!!!! first 3 lvl are critical so make sure you do not go behind him!

I am not sure which one I should chose here so I will go with Easy to Medium matchup.
You can poke him down and kill before he reaches lvl 6.
You want to get 1031_32.png on the first back.
When against him you want to keep safe distance and do not come too close when his red line if max as his will kill you! If he tries to close the gap use your Q or E and back off.
Also remember about his ulti, please!

VS

Twisted Fate

Easy

Normal start with 1001_32.png. Try to keep the distance from him and poke him with q. You might be able to kill him before first back if he underestimated you. Later 3158_32.png and 1057_32.png. You might want to farm under the tower before you get 1057_32.png but once you get it you can go all when he has 75% health and it is kill for you. He does not have escape and is not very tanky.

157_64.png is not a very difficult matchup but you have to make he will not get the first kill! Always move around so he wont hit you with his skillshots and play safe! 
If you did not die and you have 3158_32.png+1031_32.png line starts to be easy. 
With these two items you should not have big problems to kills him. Also he tends to push his line so especially when he is top he becomes an easy target for your jungler. 
I would ask you jungler to gank him first to secure the first kill.

VS

Yorick

Medium

He is mixed dmg so I would aim to get 1011_32.png first.
Also you cannot give him first blood because line will become very difficult for you.
You are able to kill him before first back so do it and line will become much easier!

238_64.png matchup is very similar to 157_64.png's one. 
It is not very difficult but you have to make sure he will not get the first kill! 
Always move around so he wont hit you with his skillshots! 
He becomes dangerous when he gets his 3134_32.png...  so play safe.
If you did not die and you have 3158_32.png+1031_32.png line starts to be easier. 
With these two items you should not have problems to kill him.

A Little Bit Of Psychology: Back to Top



I think it is the best guide I have found about time when we should play ranks: 

"NUMBERS THAT ARE GUARANTEED TO ADVANCE YOUR ELO"

"Sherlock Holmes was famous for deductive skills, and also just as famous for insisting that anyone, with proper practice and focus, could do what he did just as well as he did it.

It's very simple deductive reasoning that brings us to what I'd say is the purest key to getting out of Bronze or even getting to Platinum if you TRULY know how to play the game.

Monday through Friday, August through June, 5am PST to 4PM EST
Saturday and Sunday 6PM EST to 8am PST
 

Those are the golden times to play ranked.

During the week, kids are in school. During the weekend at those times adults will be coming home from work. Friday nights are the WORST time to play ranked, as are the eves of holidays. Kids don't have homework and they're going to stay up late. They're also hyped up that they have the next day or days off and are probably hyper and excitable... and therefore not thinking clearly or truly able to become serious about anything- Or focus.

They're also crawling out of the woodwork on League of Legends during these times.

If you want to have a better experience, play with people who are playing for keeps- Not kids.

It may take some self control and you may be one of those unfortunate people who have work hours that are the same as school hours... in which case you're kind of screwed."*

NEVER play ranks when you are tired or hungry

NEVER play ranks when you are annoyed because of the previous game 

NEVER play ranks when you lost more than 2 rank games in a row

NEVER play ranks when you drunk too much and you feel like you want to throw your monitor against the wall

NEVER play ranks when you are flying away and your character looks like Little Pony (unless you are playing Arcade Hecarim) 

Take a shower, go for a walk, watch porn or eat tuna sandwich just take a break from playing!

OK OK I know it is impossible to never do all the mentioned things (I am breaking them often) but at least try!;)


ALWAYS play little game to warm up (can be different account or normal game)

ALWAYS be a gentlemen to your team and respect them and their picks

ALWAYS be supportive and say things like: wp top/mid/bot, gj great gank, no worries we will catch up etc..

ALWAYS remember that this game is about objectives (inhibitors>towers>drake>dragon) and farming so do not chase them around the map - push the lines, farm take objectives but most importantly force your buddies to play as a TEAM!

I think the biggest issue with the lower elo is that if there is a game when enemy is 5 or more kills ahead losing team stop playing. What you need to remember is that team which is winning start to thinks that they won the game. BOTH ATTITUDES ARE INCORRECT! Enemy team will start making silly mistakes and one teamfight can change the outcome of the game! SO STAY FOCUS!

This attitudes change when you are in the higher elo so I would like you to remember this:

GAME IS NOT OVER UNTIL THE NEXUS IS DESTROYED!


Issue: I Have The Skillz But I Die a LOT... Back to Top

How to Die Less During the Laning Phase:


Few Extra Tips*:

LAST HIT. LAST HIT EVERYTHING

  • I cannot emphasize enough how important last hitting is, I'm going to explain why. If you auto-attack creeps, you push them to the tower. If they are hugging their tower, you can't harass, you must be over extended to get CS, and they have a huge advantage over you. Last hit.

DO NOT BE OVER AGGRESSIVE.

  • Do not focus on killing the enemy champion, 12 creeps are worth a champ kill, and 12 creeps is much safer than going for a champ kill. Play Assertively, not passively, and not aggressively. Balance your offense and defense. Last hit and harass, but DO NOT DIVE OR OVEREXTEND. If you dive or overextend, you will most likely die. If they get away with 1 hp, do not dive them unless YOU know you are safe (have everything warded and have flash) Pushing them out of the lane is enough, this will deny them exp and gold.
HELP YOUR TEAM
  • League of Legends is a team game. Help your team as much as possible. A team is only as strong as its worst player, so if you are the worst (Don't feel bad, being the worst doesn't make you bad) try to give it your all. Never blame your team for your deaths, because you did not play perfectly.

How to Die Less After the Laning Phase (most common issue):

Baron > Dragon > Tower > Kill >  Siege Wave Kill > Normal Minion Wave > Jungle Camps.

Capture.JPG
I noticed most of the summoners who wins laning phase struggle with post phase.. 
Basically they throw everything they worked on in the first 15/20minutes.. how it happens? 
They just die to much... 
Why do they die? 
In most cases reasons are very simple: 
a) LACK OF VISION 
b) LACK OF MAP AWARENESS
c) IGNORANCE (I am so fed I can take anybody hue hue hue)

If you want to catch up with your farm make sure you know where your opponents are. This way you wont give them free kills! But to be able to know where they are you have to.. yes you are right! - buy wards. 
So next time when you go split push or you want to push deeper make sure there is this 2044_32.png or this 2043_32.png beautiful eye looking out for you from the bushes. This way you will have enough time to decide if you want to stay and fight or it is time to disengage. (If you are a real hero at least make sure that your escape tools are not on cd..)

So basic rule is if you have no vision, your escape tools are on cd or you do not know where enemy is - DO NOT wonder far away from your team or away your side of the map! 
It is extremely important especially at the late stage of the game. 
When YOU die in a stupid way during this stage it is 4 vs 5 now - we call it a throw :D
