Is the typical set up Solo Top, Solo mid, Duo Bot, Jungler? I understand the importance of having the Jungler. But why duo bot and not top? Is there a reason, or is it like one of those understood hinges that pros get and news like me don't.

Well. FML then. Can I delete one? Guess that's what I get for trying to do this on my phone at work.

Unfortunately Mobafire doesn't let you delete threads. You can edit any post but only delete replies.

I'm sure a mod will come delete it sooner or later. Not like they got anythin' better to do. :P

Well it's a good thing I'm a pro at looking stupid. Or else that might be embarrassing.

What is so important about the dragon if you don't mind another super newbie question.

It gives your entire team gold and experience when you take it - I believe it's the same gold as taking a tower, but towers don't give experience. Therefore, it's generally important to keep team pressure at the bottom side of the map.

If you're running two people top and one bot, the other team has a much greater chance of sneaking in and taking dragon for free or winning a fight there. The same thing can happen if your jungler shows himself in top lane - if the enemies react fast and are all near dragon they can take it for free. It's just important that you don't allow the other team to control the dragon, because you'll get very far behind in gold and xp if they're taking it every time.

Oh. I didn't realize the dragon gave so much gold. But that makes sense. I guess I'm not at the levels you guys are. I still play co-op vs ai (beginner) matches. They don't usually last long anough to worry about Baron or Dragon. Thanks for helping me out though. It's appreciated.
