Gameplay


INVISIBLEINVISIBLEINVISIBLEINVISIBLEINVISIB Early Game
INVISIBLEINVISIBLEINVISIBLEINVISIBLEINVISI
INVISIBLEINVISIBLEINVISIBLEINVISIBLEFreeze, Deny , Farm , Harass
INVISIBLEINVISIBLEINVISIBLEINVISIBLEINVISI
Thats all you want to do early game. I you are ahead, try to go for kills if you know that the enemy jungler is not close enough to assist his teammates.

If your lane is pushed and you are afraid of jungle ganks, go ahead and kill the golems so you dont get killed by that Nocturne.

Always remember to secure objectives if you won a fight.

Once you destroyed the bot tower and pushed your lane, you may want to roam and secure objectives.
INVISIBLEINVISIBLEINVISIBLEINVISIBLEINVISI
INVISIBLEINVISIBLEINVISIBLEINVISIBLEINVISIBL Mid Game
INVISIBLEINVISIBLEINVISIBLEINVISIBLEINVISIBL
What you want to do now depends on your team comp. Aoe team comp? Force fights in the jungle, or bait objectives. Poke comp? Siege.

Strong assasin in your team, but you cant win teamfights? Let the assasin splitpush and try to prevent the enemies from recalling.
INVISIBLEINVISIBLEINVISIBLEINVISIBLEINVISIBL
INVISIBLEINVISIBLEINVISIBLEINVISIBLEINVISIB Late Game
INVISIBLEINVISIBLEINVISIBLEINVISIBLEINVISIBL
Late game is all about wards and decisions. If you die because of a facecheck after 45 minutes ingame, you will most likely loose the game due to the long respawn timers.

Ask your team to place wards all around the area where you want to pick fights, vision may win the game at that stage.

If the enemy team tries to force Baron and you don´t feel like you can contest it, push mid and force them to choose between the baron buff and their inhibitor.

Summoners


INVISIBLEINVISIBLEINVISIBLEINVISIBLEINVISIBL Barrier
INVISIBLEINVISIBLEINVISIBLEINVISIBLEINVISIBL
INVISIBLEINVISIBLEINVISIBLEINV
INVISIBLEINVISIBLEINVISIBLEINVISIBLEINVISIBL
INVISIBLEINVISIBLEINVISIBLEINVISIBLEINVISIBL
1. Barrier This is the standard summoner spell for ADCs. It is strong, especially early game, and helps to survive strong burst or delayed damage. Great to start a turnaround.
INVISIBLEINVISIBLEINVISIBLEINVISIBLEINVISIBL
INVISIBLEINVISIBLEINVISIBLEINVISIBLEINVISIB Cleanse
INVISIBLEINVISIBLEINVISIBLEINVISIBLEINVISIBL
INVISIBLEINVISIBLEINVISIBLEINV
INVISIBLEINVISIBLEINVISIBLEINVISIBLEINVISIBL
INVISIBLEINVISIBLEINVISIBLEINVISIBLEINVISIBL
2. Cleanse I only suggest this spell for experienced Ezreal players. Its a great summoner to pick up against heavy cc. Picking this summoner makes you more vulnerable in the early game, compared to Barrier, which is likely to be picked by the enemy ADC.
INVISIBLEINVISIBLEINVISIBLEINVISIBLEINVISIBL
INVISIBLEINVISIBLEINVISIBLEINVISIBLEINVISIBL Ignite
INVISIBLEINVISIBLEINVISIBLEINVISIBLEINVISIBL
INVISIBLEINVISIBLEINVISIBLEINV
INVISIBLEINVISIBLEINVISIBLEINVISIBLEINVISIBL
INVISIBLEINVISIBLEINVISIBLEINVISIBLEINVISIBL
3. Ignite Ignite is a great Add to Ezreal burst and helps to finish enemies. Pick this spell if you are very confident and if you are up against a heavy sustain team ( Vladimir, Dr. Mundo).
