Basics (Getting ready for the war)
First thing you should do is decide on your first champion. While there is no such thing as the strongest champion, there are ones that are easier to learn for newbies. While it is better to try them all and see which one is best for your playing style, you might want to start with a ranged class champion as you can run to safety more easily. Later on, you may play melee champions and learn more about the flow of the game. Once you are prepared for it, you can then play more difficult mage characters that have low HP, but powerful abilities that can turn the tide of battle in a flash. Of course, it depends with each individual champion and the player’s playing style and tendencies. Find out what yours are to get the most of every game.
Study what your abilities and spells do. The combinations of spells that you pick before the game can be one of the determining factors for winning, so make sure that you can make use of them as much as you can. As for abilities, there are characters that don’t need mana to use them. Some only deal with cooldown, like Garen and Katarina, while others use stamina, like Shen and Kennen. There are also special cases where abilities also make use of health points, like Vladimir and Tryndamere. All in all, there are a lot of complexities and variations to this, so you have to study them carefully. Later on, you’ll also have runes that you can equip to enhance your abilities. While you won’t need to worry about that yet, you might as well do your research since its one of the things that separates a high level account from a new account.
You must then learn more about the terminologies used in this game. Since it is a cooperative multiplayer game, teamwork is crucial and communication is fast paced due to the nature of the game. It helps to be a quick typist, but learning the jargon lets you get your point across with just a few letters. Stuff like ‘top’, ‘mid’, ‘bot’, ‘mia’, ‘jungle’, ‘push’, ‘feeder’, and so on is used in order to inform teammates of various battle conditions. Remember that the worst way to play this game is to be a lone wolf.
