League of Legends (LoL) Question: Learning Lee Sin

    Learning Lee Sin

    Hi! I´m a new Lee Sin player that wants to get better with this champion. But here is my question:

    Would any of you recommed playing Lee in TOP, MID or even SUPPORT?

    I´m asking this because I absolutely love this champion, but I hate jungling with it, not because of Lee but because of the role itself, for example: in my ELO, people just blame me for everything, even when they lose 1vs1 in their own lanes! And there are a lot more of problems that makes me just hate this role. Hope someone helps me with this doubt.

    I think he would do well mid and support, more so than the top merely because you can roam to bot lane avoiding vision while doing it. There's no limit to where you can play your champion - that's what we have draft queues for. Not everyone looks at the game the same way if they do moat are basically regurgitating other people's ideas without trying it for themselves.

    I recommend mute your team mates chat, and if they ping you for not useful things mute their pings too. Bad communication is worse then none.

    I played Lee Sin a lot as a Support and I have to say that I've only had positive experiences! He's a great support + he's very mobile in the bot lane because he can use his W on his ADC, minions, and wards.

    Hi, I responding you because I had the same problem, bad jungler but a Lee Sin lover. I started to play him in top and mid. He is very good. You must try him. Also, play him brusier with conq at top or like mid with lethality and electr if the enemy laner is squishy and you have frontline. However, I don't know how much you can climp with it, if you are good enough you will. Also, mute your teammates.

    I think that you should probably mute your teammates, and practice playing Lee Sin. Jungling can be a pretty frustrating role at times, but playing it can be rewarding as well. Muting your teammates will lower the chances of you tilting, and while they might be angry, tilting at a role discourages you from playing it, which is never a good thing. I personally would recommend some good old fashioned YouTube guides on Jungling, for which I would suggest Virkayu. He's very good at teaching people the Jungle role, as well as informing people of advanced strategies in Jungle. If you want to practice Lee Sin, there are some great guides on Mobafire that can help you in your doubt.

    Honestly, as a jungle main myself, I can tell you from personal experience that laners will often look to blame the jungler for their own mistakes in low elo (and also partially mid level elo).
    However, (not saying you're causing all of the problems) in games where you are getting blamed a lot I suggest you save the replay and analyze it to see possible areas of improvement for yourself (that's what I do and it's helped me a lot).

    As for playing Lee Sin in the top, mid or support roles, while itemwise it is technically viable, I'd like to point out he is still primarily an engage assassin with very little hard cc (that is repeatable in fights). You of course could experiment with different rune pages and item paths in different lanes and could create the next meta. It really is up to you.

    I would recommend to check out some guides on Lee Sin which you can find here. He's mostly a champion that is played purely for Jungle, but some people have been messing around with Support as well. I don't think he's that good in top/mid, I highly doubt it.
