So guys I play a lot of Dom, because that's the only thing I can win in. Pathetic right? well my friends think so. Every time I try a match in rift I get raged at like no other. So yeah, I need tips for how to get good at rift when coming from the Dominion community.


In Short

  • How do I get good at rift?
  • What is similar about dom and rift where I could draw some experience back from dom?
  • Good ways to play Fiora, Kog 'Maw and Lux on Rift?
  • Help please :3

1. I recommend playing bot/ custom games to get good at summoner's rift
2. the only similar thing is...... I have nooooo idea
3. I have no idea either since I dont play any of those 3 :<

I suggest going on mobafire/ solomid to find good ways to play them.

the only think you will take from dominion is the ability to fight against champions.. you need to learn last hitting minions, having map awareness, pushing, splitpushing, map control, jungling and ganking.. oh god why did riot release dominion? you learn nothing from it.

btw, cs is creeper score.. its basically killing minions to get gold.

Its basically been said already. When getting into the game, I'd recommend playing some bot games to figure out how to last hit, which is hitting a minion only once when it is at very little health to kill it, learn to harass the other lane, and general awareness of the map. Once you feel you can grasp the simple game mechanics, feel free to move to normal games. Also, thick skin is very important. I play Eve, so regardless of whether or not I do well, I get raged at. So, learn to ignore trolls and acquire awesomeness.

Also, I can in fact help you with two of those champs. As Kog, you will generally want to go bottom with a "support" like Soraka or Sona. You just want to farm all of the creeps you can, and defend dragon. As Lux, I normally go mid. Try to land a E every now and then until you get level six. Then just do your Q>E>R>Auto attack combo. Start Lux with Boots and 3 potions, and start Kog with the same, or a Doran's blade, depending on how confidant you are.

I hope this helped, but incase it didn't, heed previous advice, and go over to "solomid.net" The guides there really helped me, and I'm sure they'll help you. :P

I consider dominion to be a minigame for people who don't want/have the time to farm, gank, and slowly gain advantage over the other team. Basically it just throws you right into the mid game. But yeah, the people above me are right

dont worry about winning until level 30. worry about your creep kills and how good YOU do. unless you play draft pick you get alot of idiots who have no idea how to put a solid team comp together(although i still get these idiots sometimes in draft pick). dont worry about wins.
