Play against bots
At first, however obvious and somewhat boring, playing against bots is essential. In order to understand the most fundamental concepts of general functioning. For this reason, the game itself offers the option of battling the “computer”. Although not mandatory, the method allows more time, in relation to matches with other players, to meet champions, items offered, locations and resources on the map.
Getting the most out of the champions
Having prior knowledge of a particular champion, both skills and passive and the damage itself, makes a total difference in League of Legends. So, initially, try to read and understand the skills and passives of only the characters you play. As there are more than 140 champions in the game, the general understanding will only happen over time.
So try to play as much as possible with the widest possible range of champions. Since you will be able to, in addition to improving mechanically, also gain insights that will certainly impact any situation.
Runes and items
Knowing how to formulate runes for each champion and items for each given situation is one of the most fundamental understandings of the game. It will be confusing at first, but try to read the description, meaning, bonuses and features calmly. It is also worth watching professional championships and accessing sites made available by the community to get a good sense of what to do and not to do.
So, provide information and try to understand what the best players use for the champions. Despite being extremely situational and depending on specific scenarios. Like the variation for facing certain types of champions.
Farmar a lot!
More valid for the top, middle and sniper functions. Farmar means slaughtering troops that are generated from the enemy base and make obtaining gold faster. To “farm” well, you need to carry out the last attack or skill that defeats a given troop.
The main tip is to stop attacking it as soon as its life is below half. At that point, stay tuned and attack only when you are sure the blow will kill you. Which will certainly make it easier to secure all possible troops.
