Doesn't need to be secret for it to work does it?

I'm just saying people really need to broaden their horizons.

We see pros playing one specific role all the time in tournament play...

Sure it's mainly because they are the best at that role, but doesn't it make sense that if they had a better understanding of each others roles as a team they can then perform better?

TSM is a great example of a team that is pretty damn good, but often have communication errors that lead to issues.

The other day I was watching Oddone stream; TSM was scrimming against Fnatic (if I remember correctly)

They ended up winning but he and rainman got into an argument about a failed gank ~10 minutes into the game.

Rainman doesn't understand how Rammus as a jungler works, Oddone tried to explain it and there were some harsh words spoken between them....

If there wasn't a lack of understanding between each role of the team, then they could make better decisions.

This is basically re-iterating my point. If learning different roles/champs makes one person a better player apply the philosophy/practice to a team and all of a sudden the team is better.

But, well... it's the same as a decent guide after all:
It points out things that are good to know, but ppl who could improve knowing all that already looked it up or do know about it since it's sheer logic.
And everyone else...
It will end up in
"Oh, I do know about that, but totally forgot!"
or
"WTFHUHWHATTHEHELLAREYOUTRYINGTOSAYHUH!???"

Not to mention that +90% of the ppl swarming the forums to even take note of this thread are more likely to be the first type.


Writing this was more of a therapy for myself. It's up to the people who read it to take it as they will. If they already know it fine, if not, now they do. Offering insight that might already be common knowledge doesn't defeat the purpose of sharing it. It's offering insight. This is how I specifically improved my game. I started playing everything and anything. Started learning the mechanics of other champs. If that's what people did already, then there is nothing lost. It's a win/win for anyone because it can inform or remind.

I like to have 10 or so "Good enough champs" and 2-3 "Free win champs"

My current thing is I stopped playing for solo q. So I don't know any supports and have forgotten most AD carry types.

I can pull a couple champs out for jungle situations >_> Learning some mid laners...

But really I'm a solo top player xP

I am only proficient with two or three champions as well, although I just hit 30 so I am still new compared to some others. Lately I have been trying to find champions in different roles that I can learn to play.

I'm really an AP Mid/Solo Top

But I can do it all. Free win champs are my top 3 people know of one champ I considered free win...But now I'm working on some new ones to pull out and surprise people.

I am proficient at: Nidalee, Cassiopeia, Tristana, Karma, Taric, Sivir, Vayne, Gangplank, Tryndamere, Brand, Malphite, Urgot, Galio, Shyvanna, and Soraka

main role is probably AD carry or support. Although my best champions are probably Nidalee, Cassiopeia, and Tristana.
Thanks for the Signature MissMaw!

"ahead" well we all learn at our own pace I suppose.


With ahead I ment people who already made that list of tips how to improve your game. Tbh I have seen the same topic with the same tips on other forums and stuff. Not that its anything wrong meh.
