Blame the Jungle for Everything


It is the usual reaction to losing that it is the junglers fault for everything going wrong. New flash, the jungle tries to create kill opportunities for the lanes and has to farm in order to do that.

If the jungler doesn’t gank on your lane there are two reasons why, you are either pushing hard on the lane and he can’t give you the gank without turret diving or the lane is warded and He can’t sneak in for a chance to gank.

It’ amazing how a team can turn against a jungler for not ganking, but there are times when a jungler is not helpful and they offer no aid at all.

I was playing as Hecarim in the jungle, I did not call jungle it as forced on me. I have played jungle before and know how to do it, but I am a support. So I am used to capitalizing on the mistakes made in lane.

So my bottom lane is pushing hard and they keep getting ganked by lee sin. So of course they turn on me because they don’t even use the mini map to see him walk through a river ward by dragon. I ping 4 times and even start to head down from wraiths.

Instantly Lee Sin has taken both of them down and the team turns on me. They start talking bad about me and telling the other team I just camp the monster camps.

I gave teemo on mid 5 ganks and h died each time to Galio. I gave ganks to my friend on top who was not warding and countered by Olaf while playing Riven. So he needed my help. Every time I ganked I would either have to take the kill or watch my team commit suicide.

Thing to Learn from jungling:

It is not the junglers responsibility to protect you from your own stupidity. They can assist you if you give them the chance to, but if you blame them for not being in lane ask yourself this. Am I making it easy for them to get to my lane? Do they have the opportunity to gank or am I making it hard to?

How can I get my jungler to gank? Example: Wards are down and you buy vision to give him a back way to the side grass. If they can’t see him they can’t beat him. Wait for a mistake and let the jungle or support initiate. Then clean up as adc and you get fed and your support jungle gets assist gold.

So quit crying about the jungle and learn how to make the gank easier and more often!


Learning Your Role in League of Legends


It’s important in League of Legends to know your role. Each champion has a role, and each lane has a group of champions that can play it effectively. The truth is that lately people have been completely unresponsive to the roles designed to them. I am a mid or support player. I either support the AD carry on bottom or I push mid with communication and wards. Yet for some reason I have seen a great amount of players deciding that champion kills are the only thing that matter so they push for the champ kills and nothing else. They let their lane fall victim to minions and champs while they go gank another lane. Maybe I am mistaken but isn’t the point to League of Legends to work as a team to win?

If you do not know your role ask someone for help or research the champion. After you hit level 30 you need to know each purchased champions you play to perfection. Know their builds, their pro’s and cons’s, and when to runs from a fight and when to push the fight. League is a easy game to learn, but a hard game to master. So learn from the team and if you don’t know your role or champion, go play against the ai and get experience.
