How To Win Lane League of Legends
How to win your lane in LoL
Winning your lane is a complex beast to conquer and there are a lot of factors that go into winning a lane or losing it. I remember when I first started playing League I was horrible at winning lane and would always get outclassed by the enemy players and I had no idea what I was doing wrong or how to fix it. It was terrible and I just wanted to dominate my lane every game so I could win and carry my team.
We have to really look at what happens when someone wins there lane and what goes into being a successful laner in League. There are a lot of elements that you have to worry about and that go into winning a lane. I have spent countless hours learning tricks that help me dominate my lane and never allow the enemy to bully me out of experience and gold. Don’t let yourself get pushed around in lane and use these tips to become a beast carry.
In order to truly become a great laner in league, you have to play among the best players. Once I got into high diamond ranked I was getting outclassed all the time by other players and I wasn’t sure why. There were beating me, out trading me, and it was really hard for me to get any lead at all in lane. These players have such a high understanding of laning, and extremely developed mechanics that allows them to win lane.
I found out that I wasn’t just losing lane by one mistake. It was a bunch of small mistakes over and over that the enemy was capitalizing on that lead to a huge lead. The problem why a lot of players don’t improve is they never see these extremely skilled players and even if they play against them they have no idea what their thought processes is and why they are winning.
I have been on both sides. I have played against the best players in the world so now I know what they do to win their lane and their mindset when they are playing. I learned all of this information the hard way through countless hours of hard work and study so now you don’t have to. I can give you all the tools you need to take your play instantly to the next level. If you really study these tips and put them into action, you will see a drastic improvement in your play, almost overnight. I wish someone would have gave me these tips when I first started playing the game, because I couldn’t imagine how much better I would have been and how much quicker I would have become a great player.
Adjust your play style to the wave
If the wave if pushing toward you, you have to play more passively and make sure that you are getting all the minions that you possibly can. This is why a lot of players push their lanes all the time, because it makes it a lot easier to win the lane. However this will lead you a lot more venerable to enemy ganks.
Judo style of laning
Judo is a technique of using the enemy momentum against them and this is how I want you to think about laning in League of Legends. Rather than being rash and attacking the enemy furiously, sit back, take your time and use the enemy mistakes against them. You can get so far in League by just capitalizing on the enemy mistakes. It is not as much about making huge flashy plays as it is about playing smart.
One extremely simple technique is to trade only after the enemy laner uses their abilities to either farm or try and harass you. The better you are at dodging the enemy attacks, the easier it is to win lane. Also, when you attempt to harass damage back to them, it will be less contested because the enemy spells are on cooldown because they just miss used them. I see so many players just throwing their abilities out to farm and just getting harassed extremely hard in lane and it is painful to watch.
Reacting and playing off the enemy moves is one of the best things you can do. It is amazing how much I can see improvements in peoples laning skills just by capitlizing on enemy mistakes and waiting for miss plays.
