So one of my current frustrations in 5v5 is lane management. More spedically I’m referring to wave control, freezing, pushing, split pushing etc. I notice a lot of people have issues managing their lane, especially mid to late game where the appear to completely forget to push their lanes.
I realise it’s not as glamorous as a good KDA but it’s far more likely to win a match. So wanted to compile a list of tips, suggestions and tricks for the community… I’m certainly not an expert, so I’ll be looking to tap into your ideas myself.
I’ll start with the CAPTAIN minion. If you want to set up a good slow push in your lane which can and does lead to large minions waves give this a try. Take out the opposition captain minion whilst leaving yours alive, don’t worry about pushing the remaining wave you go off and secure that’s 12th kill in the midlane. Meanwhile your empowered waves will very quickly push that lane for you in your absence. This’ll do a couple of things
1 - free you up to team fight
2 - force the enemy laner to react by tracking back to clear said wave, potentially removing them from a team fight.
Looking for your tips guys, many of you are far better laners than me, share your wisdom.
