How to get more gold League of Legends

Farming is essential in League of Legends because the more gold that you have, the more effective and strong you will be as the game progresses.  I have seen many players struggle getting enough farm and gold and eventually losing impact as the game gets into the later stages.

A lot of mechanics and getting more gold comes from practice but I am going to share some tips on how to get more gold faster and ways that you can increase the amount of gold that you are getting.

Believe it or not, some champions are a lot better at farming than others.  Champions with good wave clear make it easy to get a lot of gold really easily.  Champions with single target abilities on the other hand, can be really hard to farm with because they have to get each last hit.  Be careful though that you are not using you abilities too much to farm because it can give the enemy laner a chance to kill you and leaves you extremely venerable.

Learning a champion that is easy to farm with is a good way to start having more of an impact in the games you play but it is a short term strategy.  Eventually you are going to want to play more difficult champions and sometimes the only way to get really good at last hitting, is to force yourself into a champion that requires it.  Sometimes the most skill comes from the biggest challenges.  Challenging yourself is a great way to become a better player.

You should think of yourself as a farming machine doing anything possible to get as much farm as you possibly can.  Take advantage of wraith and jungle champs when you can and try and even invade the enemy jungle and take farm when you are ahead.  Not only does this put you ahead, but it also put the enemy behind.

Roaming is great because it can set up your team for a lot of kills and objectives but you have to be extremely careful about the times that you are roaming and the benefit vs the cost of the roam.  Bad roams can leave you behind in levels and gold and can even lead to losing a turret early in the game.  Losing one turret may not seem like a big deal, but it denies vision for your team and gives the enemy more map control.

What most people do not realize about roaming is that you have to really be winning your lane in order for roams to work out and be worth it.  Roaming while your behind can work, but most likely will just increase the lead that the other player has against you.  Once you get to higher ranks, there are a lot more wards and it is a lot hard to roam.  Making sure your roams result in kills are objectives is vital to being a good player and winning games.  Just ask yourself is this roam worth it and will the result be beneficial for my team and winning the game.

In League it is easy to trade kills for towers and what shocks me is that most players do not do favorable trades because they are worried about getting kills.  A kill is always great, but sometimes you can get towers instead of chasing kills or trying to help lost situations around the map.  Towers are so important in winning the game and they really help your team gain control of the game.  Always look to get more when you have a chance.

Gold is so important in League because it determines a lot of how effective you are in the game.  The more gold you have to work with the easier it is to win games and get kills.  Turn yourself into a farming machine and look at the map as just a huge mine to farm up gold.  Don’t get me wrong, you don’t want to be the jerk that is always farming when it is time to group and win the game.  League is all about being as effective as possible and the more gold you have the more effective of a player you will be.

Best role to carry with League of Legends

With so many roles to choose from in League of Legends it might be hard to decide what role that you should devote your time into learning and playing.  Don’t get me wrong, each role in LoL is important and I am not going to sit here and lie to you and say that you need to play one role if you want to win games.  Everyone role can carry if played correctly but some roles are a little bit more impactful than others just because of the pure nature of the role.

Each role carries in different ways and has a different purpose in the game and they are all connected.  You couldn’t win a hockey game if you only had a goalie or you were missing a goalie.  Just like in league you need a every role in order to win because they feed off each other.  The meta is the way it is for a reason and that is because it works.  Riot is always changing the game because it focus on this style of playing therefore even if people try and make changes to the meta, eventually riot balances it out.

I also feel like different role are more impactful in different ranks.  When you are playing in bronze you simply just cannot carry very easily as support.  It is a lot harder because support revolves around helping your team and setting up plays and it is much harder to do when the players around you are less than familiar with the game.  You probably could carry out of bronze with support, it is just going to take a long time and might be a frustrating experience.

I feel like throughout all roles mid lane is and has always been probably the best role to carry with.  It is just such an impactful role and has so many opportunities to effect different areas of the map.  As a mid you can affect every lane and can snowball(or put behind) every other player in the game.

The positioning of this role provides for a lot of early game impact which is extremely important, but it also is impactful late game because of the sheer amount of damage that caster are able to do.  If you have the proper amount of farm you can take down almost any player and put out an insane amount of damage.   Not only do you get early impact but you are also able to affect the outcome of teamfights as the game progresses.

Like I said before any role can carry, and if you are constantly winning you lane and being an impactful player, than you are going to win games.  The main thing factor in winning games is the amount of impact you are having on the impact of the game.  This is going to show in your win rate and on the ranking system.

Support is one of the most important roles in League of Legends but it does not get much credit.  Support players can completely change the outcome of the game and a good support player can always carry.  To some it may not see like the most important role in the game but if played correctly, you can have a huge impact on the game and start soaring through the ranks.

Once you get high enough ranked, chances are you are going to have to support.  Make sure you have all the tools and can play it effectively.  This guide will give you everything you need to know to start carrying your team and winning games as support.

 

I have carried myself all the way up to and through diamond rank with support.  I got stuck in gold elo when I was first playing the game over 5 years ago and I wanted to make a change.  I decided to pick up the support role and I fell in love with it.  I couldn’t believe it but I started ranking up and ranking up quick all by playing a badass support.

 

Not many people can play a good support and I was surprised at how I could outperform the enemy support in so many different ways.  I was giving my team so many advantages, lighting up the map, controlling team fights, and getting my AD carry fed.  Don’t waste your time making all the mistakes I did and dive right in with these advanced pro level tips.

 

Support in a nutshell

Supporting allows you to really look at the game from a new perspective.  You can start seeing how League of Legends really is a team game and how you have to have an impact on your team to win the game.  Once you start seeing how helping your team can really help you win games you will never look back.

 

Many League players have the idea that it is all about themselves and will do actions that will put them ahead but will put their team behind and wonder why they are losing games.  Bring your team up and don’t put them down with insults or act greedy, especially when you are playing support.

 

You need your team to win and this is no more true than when you are playing support.  You depend on your team to do damage and you basically act as a power enhancer helping everyone on your team become stronger and more powerful.  Support make everyone around them more effective and that’s why the are such a crucial role in League.  

 

Carries are extremely fragile and without supports they would never reach their full power or potential.  They needs supports to help them farm in lane and protect them in lane.  They need them in team fights to protect them and stop assassins from tearing them apart, just as supports need their carries to do damage and take down enemy players.  All the roles are connected, important, and need each other to be successful.

 

Everything you do as a support is to aid your team in winning the game.  Controlling important objectives like dragon and nashor will give your team the edge that it needs to win the game.  In high ranked games, one objective can swing the game in one team’s favor and it is your job as the support to do everything you can to help your team control it.

 

How to Carry as Support

 

  • Vision control:  This is the vital aspect  to any role in League of Legends except a lot of players fail to take advantage of how important it really is.  Once I started warding religiously I saw a drastic improvement in my rank and play.  Think about it.  One ward not only save you from dying in your lane, but it can also show your entire team where the enemy is on the map.  This allows them to play more aggressively and take a lead in their lane.  Always make sure you are warding key buff and objectives so your team can make an effort to contest important objectives.  League is an objective game and objectives win games.  Become a warding machine helping your team out with vision all over the map
  • Win your lane:  Easier said than done sometimes but if you can help win your lane then you increase your chances greatly to win the game.  How do you win lane?  You use your abilities at the right time.  If this is a shield you have to time it effectively to prevent damage.  One of the easiest ways to win your lane is to avoid getting what I like to call “free” damage.  Make sure you are trading hits with the enemy in lane and not letting them bully you around.  Most of winning lane is take advantage of small mistakes by the enemy and growing them into a bigger and bigger lead through items and level advantages.
  • Avoid dying:  Pretty simple.  Make sure you don’t die to the enemy jungler by keeping wards up and not overextending yourself too far.  Some people think that supports are not important so it doesn’t matter if they die but this is not true.  When you die, not only do you give the enemy team gold and experience, but  you also lose out on experience and gold you could be getting if you weren’t dead.  Never sacrifice yourself unless you absolutely have to and always avoid feeding.
  • Attitude is Everything:  It is easy when you are playing support to feel like you don’t have as much control as other lanes like mid or jungler, but the difference between good players and average players is they focus on the things they can control and you can’t control the team that you get.  Eventually your rank evens out and you get as many good players as you do bad players.  The difference and what makes your rank is you!  Your play will either help you gain rank or keep you where you are.  Now it does take enough games to balance out and everyone has bad luck from time to time.  Focus on winning, never quit and always look for opportunities to come back.  This is what makes good players.
  • Wave control:  One of your jobs as a support is control the minion wave.  It is a very hard skill to know when you should be pushing out and when you should be letting the wave freeze.  Essentially you should push when you know the risk of a gank is low because it allows more control of the lane and allows you to trade free damage on the enemy.  Now you can get pretty far by auto pushing your wave and putting pressure on the enemy laners, but this leave you exposed to ganks.  However, if you ward properly, you can attract attention of the enemy jungler which not only wastes his time, but allows your team to make plays around the map and get ahead.  
  • Use your abilities properly:  This is so important.  When playing at high elo, when you use your abilities makes all of the difference because smart, skilled players will take advantage of you if they know you have a summoner spell or ultimate that is on cooldown.  Skilled League players are like sharks that lurk and wait for the optimal moment to strike and kill their enemy.  Be a shark not a fish.

 

Support is a great role with a lot of impact if played correctly.  I know I love playing support and just buffing all the players on my team and making the lives of the players on the enemy team a nightmare.  It’s amazing the impact you can have on the game and put these tips into action and you will notice a dramatic increase in your rank and skill level.
