Asteryx: NA server

I'd really love to learn how to play this game properly. I've played off an on my main account is at level 17 but I didn't play enough to remember getting there. I've started a new account to actually learn how to play the game. And I've been enjoying it a lot since I've started; however as I've mentioned I want to become adequate enough to be able to play with my friends. I know the first thing is going to be getting to level 30 which I'll do, but getting there is only a matter of time. It's no fun playing this game and always being dead hence why I have been an on and off player.

This is the only game of this sort I have ever played, and PvP in other games was never really my thing. I think my main problem has been, everyone that "teaches" me to play enjoys saying okay now go over here, do't stand there, or some direct command. i need to know WHY. That is how I learn.

Two things I've learned that may seem obvious to some people but I had no real clue about are standing behind my minions to avoid other players skills and don't auto attack minions because it causes you to push your lane and give the other player an advantage under their turret. These two tips have greatly changed my play style and increase my longevity beyond belief. Tips like these are helpful to me and that is what I am looking for.

Thanks to anyone who feels they would like to support me

To be honest at that level you won't understand most things people try to teach you anyway; just play and learn the game through experience. That's the best way to learn pre-30. You should look at high elo guides on this site, lolpro.com, lolking.net, and solomid.net to get some extra tips and builds for specific champs too.

There are video series all over youtube that give the type of information you are looking for. I covers everything from fog of war to lane control as well as jungling and ganking, last hitting, recalling, teleporting... everything is in series like this and every now and then I actually find myself seeing a little tidbit of info that I hadn't thought of or had maybe even forgotten.

Anyways, that series will keep you a little busy and simple by searching youtube you can find others like it that will give you a plethora of knowledge which can greatly improve your game.

Best of luck :)

Thank you all for your replies. I'll be looking for those guides and at the sites mentioned. I've learned quite a bit since I posted this, but I've still got a ways to go.

~Thanks
