Oh, like Karthus and his hella spam Q.

I'd like to add that "space" and "mousewheel" is super easy buttons to hit. I find them much easier to use then "t". "t" is my third choice for custom key binded key.

It's just so easy to mash space to activate Kayle ulti or Randuin's when I'm in trouble.

I hit space to center the camera on my character, which is its default function. I find it extremely useful when I'm looking around the map and need to also check my lane.

I just find it much faster to press space because my thumb is already at the key, as opposed to extending a finger to hit F1. I suppose it would be faster if you're used to playing someone like Shen, who needs to know those F1-5 keys.

Thanks for the article, and I'm pretty sure that it'll help others!

I'll just stick to the regular clicking because I never really misclick, and my clicking is always on point :D

I generally use smartcast for single target and skillshot spells as it saves time aiming, but for AOE I like to see the actual size of the area.
If i'm playing Karma or Morgana, I usually take a smartcast aswell.

hmm I can´t handle or better I don´t know how smartcast allready works.
I play as Kayle and put his Q on a smartcast hotkey. Where does it aim?
In my mind it´s rly stupid to do this, because u rly want to aim it perfectly and not hit at last a minion.
It´s only a fun if they run!

First off, Kayle is a female.

Smartcast aims at your mouse cursor automatically, so just hover over your enemy with it,
