Gonna be in a competition in Norway and was wondering if anyone had some cool tactics and some tips. Jungler and support will be my main focus so hopefully you got any tips (not a total noob so dont come with common sence)

What kind of jungle do you prefer? And what kind of support?

When playing support don't take any creep from your laner. To make up for the money you don't get you usually want to get items that give you gold (Philo Stone or Heart of Gold).

There are some times when killing creeps is fine, like when your partner leaves lane. I'm pretty sure there are guides on support and jungle on here.

I don't agree that you should never get farm as support. I don't say take all, but there will always be times when your carry will be in lane and still can't take all last hits. And the first few lvls most supports benefit more from farm than the carry. If I can get my basic item quicker I can enable so much more for my carry!

But, and this is a big but, always clear that with your carry so they understand what you are doing and how you are thinking, so they won't rage :-)

My most important jungle tips:

-Do not steal XP from lane unless they are /b or do not need it.
-Do not camp a lane that is pushed waiting for a good time to gank, your time is better spent farming those jungle minions.

As a support, my biggest advice:

Forget about yourself. Completely focus on helping your carry achieve their early game farm. Buy wards. At any given time, buy 5 more wards than you think you need.

Don't waste green wards at dragon or baron - drop pinks here to hunt out other wards (or buy oracles if you're staying alive, staying alive, ooh oooh oooh ooh, stayinng alliiiivvveeeee)

Ward everywhere else.

Take ALL the CS that your carry is obviously going to miss (dont try this even if there is a slight question as to whether they will get it or not... a missed CS won't piss them off nearly as bad as a stolen CS).

Hope I helped.'

WARDS.

Support tips:
1. Always do something, don't stay in bushes but be active, when you see the slightest chance, harass them. If that isn't possible ward or try to postion yourself in a way that you can harass them again as fast as possible. If the enemy lane is to passive, and your ad ranged carry is doing awesome, then start warding accross the map. Or try to gank mid or go invade enemy jungle with others.

2. Ward, buy them all the time when you you are at the shop.

3. Don't have a same skillbuild / itembuild every game, make your skill-order / item-order dynamic and judge on how the game is going, who is feeded, who isnt, how well your lane is doing. Predict which enemy can pull of the most dps late-game and will give you a rough time. Buy items according to that.

4. When you use Clairvoyance early on, know the jungle timer. Blue buff will spawn at 1:55 and at ~ 7:00 Minute in the game. Know where the jungler is, is a huge profit for your team.

5. When in teamfights, always have a global view on what is happening. Never tunnel vision.

6. You won't get lots of reconistion, don't give up by that. I promise you, if you play competive and there is like 1 ad Ranged carry player that played all the time with you. He will see you as hes lucky baseball bat, not able to play without that bat.
