League of Legends Jungle Timers FAQ

Here is a little FAQ about Jungle Timers for any Nerdy Junglers!

As a Jungler, it is your job to keep track of the neutral minion spawn timers, like Dragon, Blue, Red and Baron.

You can type out the respawn times in chat however works best for you, but most junglers do something like this.

“Dragon – 15.25~”

TB ~ 18.23 (their blue and it re spawns @ 18.23)

Okay so that is pretty much common knowledge, you just want how long they stay dead for?!

  • Blue Buff – 5 Minute respawn timer
  • Red Buff – 5 Minute respawn timer
  • Dragon – 6 minutes respawn timer
  • Baron – 7 Minute respawn timer
  • Golems / Wolves – 1 Minute respawn timer
  • Wraith – 50 Second respawn timer

Remeber to try to talk as little as possible in chat, to team or enemy team, because it will scroll your respawn time you typed out to far up to notice or remember.  Typing out the times usually doesn’t work so well in solo q but it works wonders when you are on Skype, Vent, Etc with a few good players.

 

Dominion Guide: Best and Worst Champions Breakdown

Dominion is a different type of game when you have been playing only Summoner’s Rift for so long.  Here is a break down of all the league of legends champions with reasons why they are either good or bad picks for the Dominion Crystal Scar map and Dominion game mode.

  • Akali: Overrated. Really good early game, yes, however she isn’t very good late game. She is super easy to counter thanks to a cheaper Oracles, Light bringer being good for tons of AD carries, and Hex tech Sweeper being amazingly efficient and incredible. Defiantly a solid pick  but is outclasses by a few others later on in late game.
  • Alistar: A nice character to have up top. Provides 2 things of CC and a solid heal that can win you the fight. Once Alistar  hits level 6, he can be a very annoying defender to get off a shrine. Should build him more tanky DPS than Summoner’s though imo.
  • Amumu: The sad mummy isn’t bad actually, % based AoE damage owns, easier to land bandages, and his ult can be a game changer if you a big 4v4 fight starts. Underrated
  • Anivia: A solid solo bot, has extreme pushing power at 6 (doesn’t have to worry about mana with the 2 health packs either), solid damage, and playing solo bot makes her lack of mobility to get to other points not matter as much.
  • Annie: So-so solo bot, pretty decent up top but you can pick better champions for both IMO.
  • Ashe: A really good zoner, ult is pretty awesome for shrine denial, above average.
  • Blitzcrank: He gets to land easier hooks since people are stationary while capping and there is less creeps blocking his hooks. Fairly tanky built in.
  • Brand: By far one of the best AP Mages for Dominion. % based damage owns, AoE is great for shrine denial and Hextech Sweeper, skillshot easier to land, and his ult will have more opportunities to be pulled off coz of lack of creeps.
  • Caitlyn: So far seems decidely mediocre. Great range for shrine denial, but her carrying is lackluster compared to other options.
  • Cassiopeia: Really really good solo bot, not bad up top, good shrine denial, strong AP caster, great canidate for Hextech Sweeper, etc.
  • Cho’gath: When built as an AP caster, he is very good. His silence and knock up is very good and he can really put out some great early game damage.
  • Corki: Pretty decent AD carry for Dominion.
  • Dr. Mundo: One of the few characters who I would say is outright horrible on Dominion. Mundo relies on two gimmicks to do his AD Carrying: his ult…that gets nerfed by the Crysta Scar buff, and his E which owns laning phase, a phase that doesn’t exist in Dominion. Other options can be tankier and do way more damage.
  • Evelynn: Really strong back capper, great when built AD, easily countered by organization and revealing items.
  • Ezreal: Not bad AD carry actually, has strong shrine denial with his ult.
  • Fiddlesticks: Fear owns, and if you pull off an ult onto top from the bushes, you basically get free kills. Not terrible at all really.
  • Galio: Gets his team to top quicker, strong solo bot, ult can make clutch plays.
  • Gangplank: Gets his team to top quicker, not bad up top, strong shrine denial, solid AD carry, good tanky DPS.
  • Garen: One of the other few characters I would say is outright horrible on Dominion…all the good things about him (his silence, sustain, AoE damage, tanky) other characters can do better or don’t matter in Dominion.
  • Gragas: Not bad at all honestly, decent shrine denial and harass with his ult and long ranged barrells from Q.
  • Heimerdinger: Strong solo bot, strong top character, great pusher.
  • Irelia: Strong solo bot, great top character, hard to take down when she gets her farm (which she will in Dominion), ult isn’t as good on healing but still rocks.
  • Janna: Underrated. Speeds her whole team up, has strong denial, has an AD Carry buff, can backup safely and easily…
  • Jarven IV: Provides a lot of buffs/debuffs, ult owns, strong shrine denial, good character.
  • Jax: I shouldn’t even have to say anything, easily amazing AD Carry, rocks hardcore, wrecks everybody with a few items, weak early game but gets strong fast.
  • Karma: Has a speed boost and some decent damage, but seems underwhelming.
  • Karthus: One of the best AP Mages in Dominion, incredible shrine denial powers, global ult, huge slow that can block the small pathways easily…
  • Kassadin: Kassadin is really good with farm, farm he will always get in Dominion. Really good, especially with spammy characters that tend to be played on Dominion.
  • Katarina: Extremely underwhelming. She’s really good with farm, but she’s bad in Dominion for the same reason she’s bad in SR: her whole gimmick is her ult and it’s so easily countered by a proper team comp that it’s lol.
  • Kayle: Absurdly strong solo bot against a lot of solo bots, really good up top, has a speed booster, can be built to carry and with her ult up will win any fight.
  • Kennen: Not bad but feels mediocre. Better options out there.
  • Kog’maw: Absurd shrine denial, gets his Razor much quicker thanks to it being cheaper, absurd damage, really really strong.
  • LeBlanc: Leblanc isn’t a poor choice for a burst-er, but there are better options. Mind that Leblanc is really good early game, and that early game fades fast on Dominion.
  • Lee Sin: Really strong and amazing, just like Summoner’s Rift.
  • Leona: Pretty gimmicky. Doesn’t put out a lot of damage but can spam stuns. Way better options out there.
  • Lux: Very high shrine denial on a low cool-down with her ult, high CC, decent damage. Very good.
  • Malphite: Not bad up top at all, not picked much tho.
  • Malzahar: Extremely good solo bot, really good up top as well, his ult owns.
  • Maokai: Underrated, has good shine denial and can enable ganks easily. His ult turns the tide of fights since it can cover an entire shrine.
  • Master Yi: High mobility AD carry with a good self heal. What more needs to be said?
  • Miss Fortune: Not as good as expected, but not a bad ranged AD carry either.
  • Mordekaiser: 3rd character that I would say is pure awful. Bad solo bot against any good one, does poor damage up top. His only saving grace is his ult with all the souped up AD Carries going around, but you could just use a good character instead.
  • Morgana: High damage, good CC, decent shrine denial, spell shield owns. Good.
  • Nasus: Underrated A LOT. Unlike Summoner’s Rift you shouldn’t be looking at his Q, on the flip side his Wither makes Nasus amazing on Dominion – dominated by tons of AD Carries and you get an Exhaust on a 9s cooldown. Wrecks.
  • Nidalee: Also underrated imo, much easier to land spears since there’s less creeps and people are stationary. Not bad at all. Has good mobility in cougar.
  • Nocturne: Amazingly strong AD carry with a built in Banshee’s (a blocked item!), high mobility ult, and good scaling. Extremely good.
  • Nunu: Not bad at all, good single target slow, good ult for shrine denial, Blood Boil is amazing with souped up AD Carries…
  • Olaf: Scales really freaking fast on Dominion. Solid AD Carry with amazing skills.
  • Orianna: Very strong shrine denial, slow is annoying coz the AoE is so huge.
  • Pantheon: His 100% crits enables him to wreck up top early on and all game without many DPS items. Ult wrecks.
  • Poppy: Poppy is ridiculous – there’s walls everywhere for free stuns, she can make herself invincible even to the spawn lasers, she gets farm really quickly. Poppy can guarantee kills, 100% of the time.
  • Rammus: Rammus guarantees you a Windmill capture pretty much, he counters AD Carries easily, he’s super mobile. Amazing….you didn’t need me to tell you that.
  • Renekton: Haven’t really seen much of him to be honest. Initial impression is underwhelming.
  • Riven: Riven is actually really good in Dominion, albeit not being able to go through walls (of which there is plenty) hurts her a lot. Does solid damage and can be really annoying all game long with the proper build.
  • Rumble: His ult is great and his flamethrower is annoying up top, but also a decent solo bot.
  • Ryze: Underrated. Ryze is one of the few champions who can easily deal with Jax et al when properly built. Strong damage, strong root, gets scaled up quick.
  • Shaco: AP Shaco is one of the best defenders in Dominion. JITB wrecks.
  • Shen: Haven’t seen much of him. Ult + taunt would be good but seems mediocre.
  • Singed: Singed is annoying like he always is, but I actually think there are much better picks than him on Dominion.
  • Sion: AD Sion is an amazing AD Carry, because AD Sion excels at winning small player count size skirmishes, which is what Dominion basically is. Very hard to kill, might require a QSS depending on opposite team tho.
  • Sivir: Built in Banshees, range is less of a problem thanks to map layout. Decent, not good or great.
  • Skarner: Not seen much of him, ironic considering the Crystal Scar is his home. No opinion yet.
  • Sona: Speed boost, easy to land stun, decent damage, great support with an organized team. Bad if not organized.
  • Soraka: Built tanky she can shrine deny and hold a point all day long. Pretty underrated imo.
  • Swain: Tanky DPS mage, not bad at all, decent choice for Hextech Sweeper, can hold shrines well enough.
  • Talon: Really good bursty AD character. Gets absurd quickly, good choice.
  • Taric: Not seen much of him, seems like building him somewhat tanky he could hold a point very well just like Soraka.
  • Teemo: Super annoying, AP Teemo will make you cry, AD Teemo will make you melt. High speed character with wards and an anti-AD carry ability. Good.
  • Tristana: Not seen at all…literally. Probably not very good, all things considered.
  • Trundle: Really strong but underrated imo. Good skill set, strong damage.
  • Tryndamere: Trynd is one of those characters like Poppy who has a weakness of needing farm, which they get guaranteed in Dominion. Once you reach late game, Trynd wrecks harddddddd. Can win absurd fights thanks to his ult.
  • Twisted Fate: His ult owns, his constant stuns are good, good damage output, Pantheon in the same role is probably better.
  • Twitch: Twitch is actually pretty good. His long range makes for good shrine denial and he gets farm quick on this map. Not great by any means, but good.
  • Udyr: Not seen much of him from others, his constant stuns and survivability make him super annoying up top, and he can defend RF and Drill easily.
  • Urgot: Pretty good, ulting someone onto your shrine (or AP Shacos JITB…) never gets old.
  • Vayne: AD Carry who does true damage and is hard to chase. She’s good.
  • Veigar: Hit or miss. If you have a team that lets you get all the kills to farm your AP he’s ridiculous. If you get tons of assists, he’s pretty bad.
  • Vladimir: Really good since his weak lane phase no longer matters. Ult is a huge AD Carry steroid and his pool is great shrine denial.
  • Warwick: Solid solo bot against all but the very strongest ones. Solid up top too to boost your AD Carries with his W.
  • Wukong: Very strong, decoy is annoying, does solid damage, scales quickly.
  • Xin Zhao: Extremely strong AD Carry.
  • Yorick: The best solo bot in Dominion, no other character can really take on a Promote Yorick in a 1v1 bot and hope to win, beating him requires sending someone from top to deal with him which causes a huge chain of bad events for the other team. This is a character that no one bans or plays, yet if they did they would free win bot guaranteed if they knew how to play him and wish he was banned.
  • Zilean: Speed boost/speed de-buff, revive ultimate and some good harass, he’s not bad at all :D.

How to get better at League of Legends?

How to get better at League of Legends?

 

As many of you obviously know, MOBA (Massive Online Battle Arena) games have gotten huge since the release of the original DOTA (Defense Against the Ancients) on the WC3 custom game client.  The biggest MOBA game currently is League of Legends, followed by DOTA2 and HON.

With the influx of popularity more and more people are trying to better themselves and their skills in lol, hence asking the question ” How to get better at League of Legends?”.   Really, the concept and game are fairly simple as the controls are only left / right mouse and Q W E R skill buttons.  What people don’t realize until later is that the hard part is strategy and teamwork.  You can only carry your team so far unless you are super crazy fed or it is still semi-early/mid game.

Here are my personal tips on how to get better, consistently, at League of Legends.

Map Awareness – I decided to put this point first and foremost because it is what I think many people overlook.

Example:

‘You are bot lane farming against another AD + SUPPORT Meta combo, both lanes seem even, 4 minutes in and still no gank from, or spotting of, the enemy jungler.’

Noobs – Continue to farm even at half health, usually pushing their lane up towards the enemy’s tower and then get ganked shortly after. How to get better at League of Legends? [email protected]

Pros – Would check bush (*IF YOU HAVE 75% HP ATLEAST) with their lane partner, so that they don’t face check the enemy’s jungler and get instakilled.  If health is too low to check bush, then someone, support usually, needs to go back and get a ward and place it into the shrubby bush in river, and maybe even another above bottom tower, this needs to continue to happen all game, or at least until the laning phase is over.

With the wards in place, and map awareness, it is literally almost impossible to die early by a gank.  The ward will spot the gank with plenty of time for you to run back to the tower.

Teamwork and Communication – People need to remember that this is a team game, how many games end for you by the 15 or 20 minute mark? Probably about 5 – 10%, so you can see where the “team fight” part of the game comes into play.  DON’T RAGE AT YOUR OWN TEAM! Suggest something they can improve or try not to let happen again, but don’t belittle them for a clicking in a few wrong spots, you have done the same thing, and I’m sure have been yelled at before.  No excuses, if you want to win, try to win, be a leader, and get the team feeling like a team with friendliness and helpfulness.  You can argue this point all you want, but has anyone yelling at you, or calling you a newbie or troll made you want to play better? That’s what I figured…

Champions – Champions are a fine line between getting better and just getting experience.  The most I can say here is try to counter-pick the enemy team at champion select.  If you are still semi-new and don’t play any ranked yet here is my suggestion.  When you play ranked there are usually the same group of characters picked, at least MOST of the time for the current meta game of Solo top(tanky dps), AP mid, Jungler, and then support and ranged AD bottom.   Most of these characters can be counter by another character.  You need to learn who counters who (or just Google the matchup while waiting, if you know what lane you are in and versus who) and this will help out your laning phase really good.  There is one catch to this, and that is you need to be able to play the character semi-well.  If you are still leveling up, playing a lot of normal games or maybe just trying to find the champions you like and want to call your mains, then you need to learn some good champions now!    Good Champions aren’t “SHACO’S SO OP ZOMG NERF” champions; good champions are ones who bring the most to the synergies of the team composition.  Do a search for “League of Legends Champion Tier List”; learn two or three of each of the top tier champions, of each role

Examples –

Support ChampionsSona, Soraka, Alistar, Janna

Jungle ChampionsMaokia, Gangplank, Lee Sin, Jarvan

Mid ChampionsAhri, Fizz, Morgana

Top ChampionsIrelia, Yorick, Riven, Shen

Ranged AD ChampionsAshe, Miss Fortune, Graves, Caitlyn, Corki

 

Last Hitting – Last hit, don’t push your lane up to the enemy’s tower unless you can’t help it, example being, Mordkeiser.  There are multiple reasons for doing this.  One reason is that your lane is now unable to be ganked, and you are more likely to be ganked, because you have to run twice as far to be in a safety zone, aka your tower.  Another reason is that you are enabling the other team to farm and get experience points.   I will break this down a bit further.  If you are winning your lane and the opponent is unable to last hit without risking death or punishment in the form of harassment, then DO NOT PUSH! If you don’t push you can last hit and keep the minions in the middle of the lane in front of river, and if you stand between their minions and their tower, well you just denied them all the possible last hits, and you also denied them the XP because they are out of range.   This advantage gets huge the longer it goes on.

 

TL:DR Version

  1. Ward your OWN lane early game, unless jungler, then ward what is needed
  2. Pay attention to the map, always have a good idea of where ALL FIVE of the enemy team members are, and think of what their skills will do CC wise if they catch you and if you will survive.
  3. If you are still learning champions, pick good ones to learn, aka top 1/2/3 tier champions.
  4. In champion select, try to out pick the enemy team, if you don’t know what your laning opponent is weak against, then Google… “Best champions to lane %top% against %enemy champion%”.
  5. Act as if your team is next to you at a tournament, be nice and helpful.  You can tell them what they did wrong but do it constructively, or else they will just give up on the game just to make sure you lose because you called them a noob and who knows what else.  If someone called you a noob and raged at you for getting caught 1v2 top against two ranged as a melee, most likely you would laugh to yourself and then troll the rest of the game, or at least not help the rude person once team fights come around, which usually makes for a swift defeat.
  6. Last Hit, don’t push your lanes past river towards the enemy tower.

What is a Good Creep Score in League of Legends?

514 Creep Score at 55 Minutes

514 Creep Score at 55 Minutes

League of Legends is an awesome game, so awesome that most people strive to improve their game play.

What is the best way to get better at LoL? Creep Score / Farming Minions

Items are what make you better than your opponent, and the only way to do that consistently, is to farm creeps consistently.   You can go for a lot of ganks, and sometimes snowball, but other times the gank fails, and you die.

What are the negatives of dying? Well, for one you probably were not in your lane so you missed creeps, you gave the enemy team assist gold and the player who killed you almost a full items worth of gold.  The time you spend at the fountain and dead are all hurting your creep score, hence, putting you even more behind.  You can see how this will add up over a few deaths, and while you might think that the rager on your team is just a rager, usually they are semi-right in what they are saying, but need some communication lessons.

What is a good creep score at 10 minutes? The normal standard is 10 CS every minute.

Okay so that number seems unrealistic in certain game scenarios, but by knowing that number you will know where you stand at every point in the game.

Another good way to tell how you are doing is to hit tab and check your lane opponents creep score.  Are you above your enemy’s cs? Then you are doing fine (as long as you aren’t 0-5 to his 5-0).

That really is all there is to say about creep score in league of legends, please discuss any other points you would like to add!
