I've never had a problem with accuracy on a skillshot with smartcast; if anything, I got more accurate because I have better reaction times with it. I usually don't have a problem with positioning with auto target spells either; I had more problems WITHOUT smartcast because I'd always miss my brief window of opportunity if they passed within range.

The only skills I don't use on smartcast are AoE spells (such as Barrel Roll), because I like to be able to lead with those spells, and they're harder to predict range.

So. Smartcasting is great if you're good at determine the range, right?

Im just curious. Why do so many ppl prefer smart casting? And telling other ppl to do the same?

After ^that question above:
I've used the the normal "click-to-use" way since I started at lvl 1. Would it maybe be too much of a change to start now?

Sorry if I somehow shouldn't ask questions in someone else's topic.

It's just like AP vs AD builds, it's personal preference. That and a bit of people just not feeling like getting used to it. The only times I think I don't use smart casting are when it's a very short range ability like GP's parley and I want to be extra sure I don't sit there chasing them and have to waste time backing off. But even still I often end up smart casting his parley. :D

Moral of the story, it just takes practice. Anyone can do it in the end.

QFT to many people just give up to quickly. They expect to walk into LoL and go 100-0-0
