My take on the Beta 3v3 Map
Overall I enjoy the changes, I find it alot easier to get a first blood as people run in strange ways. I like how you can not flash into the base and end games and I enjoy that you cannot flash to gank top lane when lane is pushed evenly.
I think that there should be another buff similar to red, and the Map should have a few minor changes to how its set up but other than that it is much needed ad better than before.
Hello Everyone! This is my third guide on MobaFire, and I was thinking why not release a updated tier list with meta's?
So my thought process on all of this was to have a guide that consisted of every champion new and old and every champ that comes out (note I don't have every champion as of now but soon lol) I will not only use my own game experience I will use that of team games I have played and what my friends play.
Lets get started
Meta's (Team Comp)
First off when making a team you need to consider different team comps (meta's)
I will list a few and explain them shortly
In no way are these in order from best to worst. I am just explaining them
1. Tank, Off Tank, Caster
2. Tank, Off Tank, Tank Caster
3. Off Tank, Caster, Off Tank
4. Jungler, Caster, Off Tank
5. Jungler, Caster, Tank
Well there are 5 different meta's that people use. Time to explain how they work.
1. This comp allows your team to take a massive amount of damage while dealing just as much in return. This com you would put the off tank or caster top to solo (depending on who counters their top better) and the tank bot with who ever did not go top. This allows your bot lane to have a support feel to it. (tanks should buy gp5 like heart of gold and philo stone as most people want to take alot of farm)
2. The Tanks, this comp is very strong as it can take an insane amount of damage. This comp almost feels like "oh they are trolling easy win" but in reality this team tends to win the most (good champs to use ap tank mumu or singed or even morde, with tank rammus malph or ali, and off tank like sion or riven.)
3. This comp has alot of heavy damage off tanks (riven, lee, sion, ect) while having a decent ap champ to make the other team not just buy armor. This is one of the most common comps (IMO) and it seems to work well most of the time.
4. Jungler?!?!?! Yes a jungler, this comp would have a strong jungler suck as ww, udyr, lee, or even rengar. While having thatr solo top and solo bot damage. This is another common team comp as the only way to stop them is to counter and ward. (junlger stays iun lane till about level 2-3 before jungling as it is safer.
5. This is another jungler setup but with a tank being top lane or bot lane to keep turret from dying 2v1. This does not seem very common from what I have seen but it has alot of potential
Now you might think that I left out roaming comps, but really everytime your top you should roam to ward, gank, ect (remember ward dragon and red, and where ever you see fit.
Tier list. This list is based on how well champions can do in the Twisted Treeline. This is not based on how common champions show up, even though it would be tied to it in a way. (champions that are better are played more)
Tier 1 (top tier best champs
Jax, Lee sin. Nocturne, Renekton, Riven, Sion, Udyr, Yorick.

Explainations for Tier List
Tier 1 explainations,
Jax, Lee sin. Nocturne, Renekton, Riven, Sion, Udyr, Yorick.
Jax : He is a very strong champion that can sometimes take on a 2v1 early game and win, he has a very good stun low cooldowns and nice gap closure, he can be made tanky by buying damage items (from ultimate,) and he can get alot of sustain from hextech which ill keep him inlane forever
Lee Sin : So lee sin is a great jungler and his ganking is amazing because of his knockback (if used right you can jump to a farther enemy and then knock the one behind you towards your team while the others run away,) Lee sin has alot of sustain from abilities, and he can jungle fairly early on. He has a flash like ability which if used right with wards you can win very easily.
Nocturne : This guy has a nice fear an amzing ulti for ganking and a aoe basic attack, oh he also has a cc blocking shield.
Renekton : Rene is an amzing solo lane champion with a stun and alot of damage he is a champion to be reckoned with. He can restore alot of his life using abilities and can then dish out a ton of damage for a kill.
Riven : what part if riven is not amazing? she has a stun, a knockback, a ad based shield, an amzing passive, and a ulti that deals more dmg if they have lower life... and her mobility is amazing ( dont chase you wont catch her :P )
Sion : Sion is a super mazzing ad or ap beast, when made ap his stun and shield do ALOT of damage to a single target or in aoe (just from shield,) but when he is made ad that is where he shines, his ultimate gives him 100% life steal and attack speed this with his E and Q make at least 1 person dead maybe 2 if ur alone fighting.
Udyr : The reason udyr is good is because he has so much sustain from turtle and and insane amount of attack speed with tiger, and he can also stun when needed which is amazing. + he can jungle early on which is very good
Yorick : reason he is top tier is because he can turn anyfight from a 3v3 to a 4v3 with 1 ability, then his team just cleans house. He also can be hard to lane against causing your top laner to fall behind early on.
When banning Champions, try to ban the strongest champions and the ones you or your team does bad against (yorick and jax are almost a must, then lee or udyr or singed, ect)
Farming / Jungling
Well farming in TT is alot like 5v5 farming, just its a smaller lane and there is less people in the lanes. This provides you with an ability called zoning. Zoning the other team allows your lane to our level and possibly out farm them, by pushing them back with harass you can control your lane to ward or gank other anes when needed.
Jungling in 3v3 is a bit harder as you need to stay in lane for a few levels just to be able to survive, and when not playing a strong jungler you will get killed still (sometimes,) jungling allows you to have a roaming person that can gank and kill dragon fairly early on. (be warned if you are countered just sit in bot lane and farm with them because you will mostly die or get ganked.)
I do not have a guide on how to jungle so just go with what feels right (imo start the small camps on bot and top before trying anything else)
just use your common sense and ward always ward
Teamwork is a must in anygame from CoD (lol) to SC2.
In LoL teamwork is needed in Ganking, Supporting, Jungling, and Generally Winning games...
Working as a team means you need to talk to them and state what is needed or what you are doing. IE. Hey bot lane im going to gank in a second (or even just calling mia is teamwork.) The more you get into the habit of this the better you will do. Also buying wards and making sure everyone else buys wards makes you win. (not joking try it)
This is a great guide that shows you champions that counter eachother (FULL CREDIT TO THE PERSON WHO MADE IT.) This also shows you who works well with other champions i would suggest taking a look at it and seeing what you think, it has helped me a few times against those champions i do not play against often
Pros / Cons
Pros from the TT
new way to play
Easy to lose
Harder to beat op champs
need to farm
forgetting to ward
V3. I have added a fully t1 explanations list, will add more soon.
V2. I have aded farming and jungling along with teamwork. I plan on adding a fed tier list explanations soon
Added counter picking section
V1. I will be adding MANY more things in the future this is just the base guide and list right now
