[10.15] Pressure Support Pyke

By Ghionova
Introduction
Hello, im Ghionova

Ive practiced this build for very long time and it was successful in so many times. Dont expect too much, im not in high elo so I can only talk from gold-iron experiences. I dont know if this could be a thing in high elo if people want to hunt objectives in the game but they should understand that your main goals are objectives and pressure on enemy jungle and botlane, whats actually good in my opinion.

My advice: Learn Pykes kit, get trusted with it and test him before you start a match.
My Intentions for this build Back to Top
It was very frustrating for me to get matched with ignorant team mates. Who afk farm in jungle, roam while no enemy was shown up or refuse to take action for objectives. Doesnt matter how many times I asked for help at drake, they didnt come for help even if they had lane prio or the enemy jungler was dead and the allied jungler nearby. My junglers also got outjungled by the enemy jungler and act like kids when they died. So I thought I had to do it on my own and turn the tables. Thinking about a way to help my jungler aswell and showing them how important objectives are. Those who were willing to learn and follow, won more games.

You maybe think why I dont try to climb to get out of the range of those players. The fact is, I wasnt able to keep their focus on the game. They flamed when someone died. Some went afk after 3 deaths in 5 minutes. Some ran down mid after they didnt get help when there was no chance for help... Even with a positive mindset and mood I wasnt able to calm them down. I didnt talk alot in the chat and just tried to calm them down but too many of them were ignorant and always knew it better. Even if I gave them tips how to deal with situations they started flaming, like I was insulting them or something. Resistant against help is the first way to iron. Like I always say. If you cant repair the gears in a machine, the machine wont work. Perfect example for a team, gears need to work together to move on. I dont want to justify myself, just telling you about the experiences Ive made. I mean im not perfect either. Just a human trying to help but deaf ears dont hear.
How does this work now? Back to Top
Well, its pretty simple...

You want to help your adc AND your jungler. Pykes roaming potential is huge and so you will travel around the map, just like a Bard does. In general you play passive-aggressive, in other words: You play aggressive under your turret. Why? Because you have a turret that protects you and they have nothing exceot themselfs. What you do is roaming mid and top or invade the enemy jungler with your jungler while enemy botlane pushes. Then you either gank like your jungler or engage passive-aggressive from your turret. The good thing about this is, you can do the drake even if enemies have lane prio but dont do it if they warded drake. Then they notice you did drake and go back to their towerrange or they will keep pushing and dont pay attention to it - free gank possibility. At the start of the game im always trying to steal the enemies red/blue buff depending on the side you play. You maybe attract bot and mids attention and they will try to kill you while your mid and bot get cs lead. I only invade if they didnt ward or didnt show up for flexing at the river. If I start on lane, I wont skill any ability at lvl 1 and keep the point for my level up. You dont know if youre getting early ganked and need your E to escape. Your adc will maybe flame you but you dont care about the opinion, as long as you know there are objectives to do. Never run around for nonsense, just head back to botlane then.
Threats & Synergies Back to Top
Threats and Synergies are split up so you can see supports and adcs separated and have a better view. They work for all builds. Those threats and synergies were made by my own experierences. It can vary. Also, threats and synergies vary from enemy and ally combinations - they are made in 1v1 cases or how you can deal with them if you dont get hard cced by supports or outkited by adcs.
Suggestions Back to Top
If you think its not that well explained, please let me know and I will change it. Some tip videos might come in the future. Also for now - explaination for items are in the item chapter notes.

Have fun trying this build
