Hello,

Thanks for the tips in advance!
As the title suggests, I need help on movement and positioning in general. You see, I'm always the guy who gets grabbed by a Blitzcrank or pulled by a Skarner. And even when i'm extra careful about baits, there's always this Flash + Smartcast Amumu toss getting me and end up getting my whole lane stunned and dead.

Practiting with bots didn't help, they are too predictable ! And I don't wanna waste someone's time so I'd just try to get some tips here and practice on Normals basing on your tips and tricks !

Thank you !

Well it really depends on what champs you play. If you run mid/adc, then you need to position yourself behind your tanks. If you are the tank, then make sure u try to keep a minion between you and their initiator, if they do indeed have Rocket Grab or Bandage Toss or something similar. If you are a squish carry, NEVER facecheck bushes, an NEVER run ahead of your team. If you are a tank, only facecheck bushes when you have your team ready to respond to threats (altho i would suggest warding/have someone else use a vision spell first, such as Lucent Singularity or Rampant Growth. As an ADC your place is kind of in the thick of things, towards the back, but as an APC you come just barely in range of your abilities, blow your spells, then back up a bit to keep yourself safe until some of your abilities come off cd again. Think of it like a bird going after an anthill. Zip in, do some damage, pull back out, find your next target, zip in again, wash/rinse/repeat. This is all very general info, if you give me some champs you play i can give you more focused advice.

under the trainer's list you can find a bunch of this type of stuff. Coincidentally, I am listed as someone who can help with positioning. Since you're EUW it will be harder since we won't be able to play together, you're going to need to be more specific with your role or champion. For instance sometimes you want to get pulled if you're someone like Leona
Thanks for the Signature MissMaw!

I get what you mean, as a general rule squishies behind and tankies/initiators in front, for exmaple if I'm Orianna I just cast my ball on my Initiator, when he initiates I unleash the full combo then I get out of focus asap. Should be fixed with practice I think :D

@Mooninites Thanks for the info, I guess EUW isn't as MOBAFire-populated as NA, but I'll check that list, also, you mean that if Im Leona I should bait Blitzcrank into pulling me right? So I unleash the stun combo?

the biggest mistake blitzcrank can do is grabbing morgana with Zhonya's Hourglass :D
