Nowadays, League of Legends is the most popular and beloved game in the world. With 100 million monthly active players worldwide, LoL is a real beast, showing the power of gaming. But how do you become a professional League of Legends player, while the game is played by millions? The answer is simple: dedicate your life to the game.
Train hard and go pro! In our League of Legends Beginner Strategy, we gave you the basics of the game. Now let’s see what it takes to bring your game to the next level with our League of Legends Pro Strategy article.
Since League of Legends is a team game, you need to swallow your ego and play for the team. If you start to put your teammates first, you will surely improve your stats and win/loss ratio. When you are playing alone with random players, be the change. Be the nice guy who cheers and compliments the good plays. Don’t be toxic and blame others for their mistakes. Anyone can make a mistake, including you.
As soon as you pick your desired gaming role, start to train it to learn how to improve. For example, the Jungler role was extremely altered in the last League of Legends Season. Same major changes were made to the Supports the season before. So if you play and max one role, check game updates, be in touch with the changes and innovations and get advantages from them. Usually, first weeks after the major patches are very important. If you are familiar with all the updates and changes and know how to use them appropriately, you will easily win your games ane expand your champions pool.
As you already know, in the beginning of the game, you need to pick and ban champions. If you have only two good champions and the opponents ban them at the beginning, you could be forced to play a hero which you are not so good with. So make sure that you main 5-6 characters and that will bring some variety in your game.
In our League of Legends Pro Strategy, we will cover one more of the major aspects of the game- Objectives. We will divide them into two categories – Primary and Secondary.
Primary objectives are the things your team won’t win without. Secondary objectives are ways to get an extra edge, but never underestimate their importance. They are often crucial steps to achieving primary objectives or deciding factors in closely-matched games.
All League of Legends champions gains levels by earning experience. Higher levels mean higher base stats and ability damage, which helps you in team battles.
Minions and Dragon grant experience locally after their death.
Destroying Outer Turrets and slaying Baron Nashor grants experience.
Champion kills and assists give experience.
Gold through minion & monster kills: To buy items, players need gold. Last hitting is another important aspect and greatest source of gold income. You can check your last hits in the creep score (CS). But we will talk more about farming and last hitting later in our League of Legends Advanced/Pro Strategy.
Structure kills: The only way to win a League of Legends game is by destroying the enemy’s main building, Nexus, and the only way to the Nexus is through Turrets and Inhibitors.
Turret kills give gold to all allies and remove enemy vision and protection. Once a turret is destroyed, your team can control that area. Minions can push further, threatening or pressuring other structures.
Destroying inhibitors and releasing super minions is extremely important. Having super minions is like have an extra player, which help you to push and pressure the enemy base. Note that protecting your Inhibitor is as important as attacking enemy’s. You can learn why by checking one of the most legendary eSports video below.
One of the most important secondary objectives is vision. Place and protect wards, while destroying the enemy’s. Vision saves lives!
Rift Scuttler: When you kill the Rift Scuttler, it buries itself in the riverbed, creating a circular area that grants vision for 75 seconds and a speed boost to all allies that walk through it. You need to find the right time to kill it from a strategic standpoint.
Buff monster rewards: The Blue Sentinel and Red Brambleback grant buffs to their slayers. It’s really important to protect them, and try to steal the enemy’s. These buffs last 2 minutes the first time they are taken. When the buff carrier is killed, the buff transfers to a champion’s killer with a refreshed countdown.
The Crest of Cinders or the red buff gives health regeneration, extra damage, and a slow of basic attacks to its slayer. It’s best to give the red buff to an initiating fighter or tank, or an ADC.
The Crest of Insight, also known as the blue buff, grants mana regeneration, cooldown reduction, and ability power. It’s best to give blue buff to ability-oriented allies, mid or jungle, depending on the team strategy.
The Rift Herald: Slaying the Rift Herald grants 50 gold to each teammate and drops a purple object. Each of the team members can walk over the object and absorb it. The buff Glimpse of the Void gives bonus damage on the attack when no ally champions are nearby. It lasts 20 minutes and is replaced by the Nashor when the time expires.
Elemental Dragons: Dragons are another important objective, needed to win the game. By slaying the Dragon you will get local experience and a permanent buff to all ally champions. Effect of the buff depends on the Dragon type, and killing multiple Dragons of the same species stacks the effect.
Mountain: Gives bonus true damage to Baron Nashor, Dragons, and Turrets.
Infernal: Grants increased Attack Damage and Ability Power to all allies.
Cloud: Plus bonus movement speed while out-of-combat.
Ocean: Restores missing health and mana at regular intervals if no damage has been taken from champions or turrets for at least 5 seconds.
Elder Dragon: After 35 minutes of the game, Elemental Dragons are replaced by the Elder Dragon, the most dangerous type. This Dragon gives a 2-minute buff called Aspect of the Dragon. Elder Dragons give basic attacks and spells which burn the targets for 45 damage over 3 seconds.
Baron Nashor: Definitely the most important creature in League of Legends. Killing it grants gold, experience, and Hand of the Baron buff which gives 40 Ability Power and Attack Damage. It reduces the recall time and increases healing and movements speed after the recall. Most importantly, it gives a special buff to all nearby minions making them bigger and stronger and helping the team to push and pressure the enemy. Lasts 3.5 minutes.
