For a longtime now it is customary for the gamer’s in our midst to blame others for a loss. However many times it is usually a matter of how each person performs in lane and in team fights. To better understand the possible reasons for a loss lets ask ourselves these questions.
In what way did the jungle help and aide early game and did he keep up in lvl?
Did the support ward properly and use their abilities to set up kills and deny farm to the adc?
Did the adc cs well and did they take advantage of mismatches and possible leads in lane?
Did the apc ward mid properly? Did the apc offer ganks to the lanes and successfully feed the adc in lane?
Did top provide the proper build to compliment the team composition and to help carry the team to a win?
Did the team take objectives?(Towers, Baron, and Dragon)
Did the team present proper team fight tactics such as focus the apc or adc to shut down the damage?
Did the team split push when the enemy was grouped on a lane? If not was it the best decision to split push or defend?
Some great jungle tips are the following:
I love to play pantheon in the jungle and I love to gank after blue on bottom if purple side or top if blue side. Usually if I have a good adc support it gets adc first blood and that means a lot for the rest of the game. I then go wolves, wraiths, red, and sometimes a jungle may go for my red which is why I like to get first blood to make up for it. However sometimes a jungle is just not thinking and my red wil be there when I move over that way. I notice a Lee sin player will usually invade my red anyway so I will go steal theirs after first blood. The goal on most jungles is to monitor the lanes and farm the monster camps, but if your team is losing lane then you have to react with a gank more often. I have changed games just ganking early and often. You lose the level and that hurts but if your lane is fed you did a good job and can go back to farming. Remember that blue on mid is a great way to help them get ahead and if you can take away their blue it makes it better. Just remember counter jungling is risky. So if you go in drop a ward and have vision on the enemy so you can counter it better.
In lane you should be farming and harrassing, and a support is supposed to deny farm from the enemy. So get in there and force them to miss the cs. Top needs to ward and know the location of mid and jungle, it is usually the downfall of top that they do not ward and watch the map and get ganked easily by mid and jungle. Ping a missing enemy and make sure people know it!
If you play your role correctly and ward than you did your job. If someone else didn’t do the same don’t cuss at them, but encourage a new strategy. After all it is a team game.
