Today I'll introduce you to some tips I actively employ when jungling. These aren't targeted to a specific ELO as I don't see junglers using these tips in my ELO either. I think this guide is for people who are finding it difficult to improve their jungling ability, or people who don't know where to start.

1. Remember you can keep a warding totem as your trinket up to level 9 - this is because you get Oracles Lens then. Go and buy pink wards as well as Smite Raptors for vision clear, as having as much visibility as possible in the jungle is such as help.

2. If you want to pressure a specific lane (you feel that lane combo will be weak), start from the opposite site of the jungle to that vulnerable lane. So for example, if you want to put pressure on Top Lane, start from bottom jungle and work your way up. This is so you will end up at that lane you want to put pressure on, after you've acquired gold and are a higher level - thus providing more value to that lane when you enter.

3. Pressure the lane with the best carry potential. Is there a Soraka/Ezreal combo bot lane? If so, don't focus bottom lane. Do you have a feeding mid? Don't focus this lane. This laner cannot be trusted to maintain the effort you put in, intead if there is a Nasus top for instance you want to help (especially early game). Especially in Nasus case, he will snowball mid to late game and dominate, which is worth the effort you put in. I don't mean you should abandon the other lanes, but it's important to know where your effort will be put to best use in order to win.

4. Get your laner with the best snowball potential fed (kills and minion kills). To add salt to the wound, you can tilt the enemy laner. Say you have Irelia top lane vs a Riven, you go and kill the Riven then push the lane to tower. The Riven will now be under pressure on that lane, so you know she'll teleport back - most top laners will do this even in the middle of a wave. Once she's back on lane, kill her again from the bush and push tower. Capitalize and abuse that lane, which will not only put pressure on their jungler to come and assist, but will also tilt their top laner which makes for worse gameplay.

After their jungler is out of their jungle, you could take their jungle then yours, and rinse and repeat top lane. I'd imagine by this stage in the game the lane would be taken care of, but the more pressure means the more resources needed by the enemy team to recover that lane.

5. If you're being counter ganked, you can leave a ward before you enter lane if you want to avoid 2v2 situation. This also helps if other laners teleport up to help, so having vision helps a lot.

6. Don't tax your laners more than you have to. If you gank a lane and get a kill, the laner will only get 150 gold which is one wave of minions. If you then take 2 minion waves, that's another 300 gold on top of that. Everything you take from a laner will directly impact their ability - remember you're there to assist not take over. Your section of that map is jungle, not on lane.

7. If the enemy jungler is bottom lane, go to his top side and clear it as you know he won't be there immediately. Make sure you ward up before you leave so you know when he returns. Once their enemy jungler comes back to topside jungle and sees his camps have been taken, his only option is to go bottom side and wait for camps or go on lane. When you see the enemy jungler return, you can signal to nearby lanes that he's near, therefore keeping you on step ahead. In a way, you're controling his actions, making his gameplay predictable.

Hello guys, welcome to my next tutorial, I gave an indepth explination as to what League of Legends is - so by now I'm assuming you have had a lot of game time in. One question new players have, is what are Riot Points, and what can I buy with Riot Points. I'll explain what they do, and what you can buy ingame. As you may have noticed, League of Legends is free to play. The game is very well made, and has a large community of players (Over 100 Million monthly users!). This all comes at a cost, especially when you consider the staff needed to keep the updates rolling out, moderator staff, graphics designers...etc. Users buying Riot Points is one of the ways Riot can make money, and keep the game running smoothly.

When using the points in game, you can buy cosmetic skins for champions and wards, as well as cool player icons. There aren't any items in League that will give you an in game advantage which is great in my opinion. Sure you can play the game for free, but I find there is only so much repetition that I can put up with before I want a bit of change. Especially when I play with a few select champions that I have mastered, I want some more emotes or different animations. This is where buying skins can be cool, as you are able to enjoy your favourite champions with multiple appearances!

Generally people buy these points in a shop or online, depending on your local currency they can start to get expensive when you consider some skins can cost over 3k Riot Points. I understand the game is free, but that is a lot of money just for one skin. Now most people will say the game is free so you should support it - and I agree, however sometimes money is hard to come by, and why not enjoy some in game addons? This is where Free Riot Points is a great alternative. You can buy the items you want, without having to pay huge amounts of money for premium currencies. I should say, that I support Riot myself. The game is very well made and they are innovative when adding new champions/maps/game modes to League. It's my favourite game, and one of the reasons why I started this blog. I've been a long time player, so I understand they need to make money as they're a business, but also people can feel left out when they cant buy the upgrades that they like.

I would recommend only using this for expensive skins, or a once in a while treat. As I said, I support Riot and think it's a great game. You can find the site here, there are clear instructions to get you started and on your way to those legendary skins! In my experience, it takes me around 1-2 minutes from start to finish - in my opinions this isn't too long considering what you get. It might depend on how many people use the site, I imagine if you're in the US there would be a lot of people using the site at the same time, so maybe use it later in the evening or early morning. I've never had this problem myself, but you'll have to test it out and see.

I've used this many times, so let me know if you have any problems. I have had to reload League a few times for my Riot Points to be applied to my account, so if it doesn't happen straight away sit tight and wait for 10 or so minutes. I'm not quite sure what the delays are, but my account is in good shape and I've been able to get my hands on a few good skins - so all is well! I'll see you guys on my next post, cya!

What is League of Legends?

As this is a beginners guide for League of Legends, it makes sense to explain what the game actually is. League of Legends is a Free-to-play (F2P) Multiplayer Online Battle Arena (MOBA). Free to play means the game is free to download and play, however this doesn’t mean there aren’t paid aspects to the game. In League of Legends, you have Riot Points which can buy aesthetic modifications to the game – but these don’t get you a competitive advantage. MOBA is a term that Riot, the developers of League of Legends coined, to describe the genre inspired by Defense of the Ancients (DOTA for short). DOTA is a very popular Warcraft III mod. The MOBA genre includes games such as DOTA 2, Heroes of Newerth, Smite, Awesomenauts and many more.

In League of Legends, the main game mode played is on the Summoners Rift. Two teams of 5 players each battle in their own lane to destroy various pieces of infastructure, and eventually destroy their Nexus, securing the win. In addition to Summoners Rift, League of Legends has other maps, Twisted Treeline (A 3v3 version of Summoners RIft), Howling Abyss (a linear map used for ARAM – All Random All mid) a game mode where your champions are randomly assigned, and you battle on a single lane.

League of Legends has servers in multiple countries. North America (NA), Western Europe (EUW), Eastern Europe (EUNE), Russia (RU), Brazil (BR), Latin America North (LAN), Latin America South (LAS), Oceania (OCE), Turkey (TR), South Korea (KR), China (CN), and southeast Asia (SEA). League of Legends has over 100 active million players worldwide, and 7.5 Million concurrent players online. It is updated on a regular basis, with patches released on a near monthly basis. League of Legends also boasts a robust e-Sports scene, with tournaments and competitive seasons taking place on a regular basis around the world.
