Speaking of teleports, set up a few cheap wards. They make great invisible teleport targets if your team doesn't have a teemo.

After this patch, you will be able to Cleanse the bombs correctly

Also after this patch, wards will see twice as far. So yeah.

Pro-tip: always read the patch notes. Many things change. ( <- this is incorrect )

EDIT: Whoops got that wrong.

Cast range changes from 300 to 600.
This has nothing to do with the range they see (i think 1000 and 1100).
You can only place them from further away.

Pro-tip: always read the patch notes carefully. You might tell lies if you don't.

With chogaths slow spell the cast reveals a graphic of dust on the ground rumbling. most good players will see this and dodge it. However, with a little practice you can cast this in a way that the entire graphic will be hidden behind the players champion and as long as they don't move they won't even see it comming.

Playing as Yi:

Alpha strike is an incredible move. When there are 3 minions left in a push and an enemy hero nearby, alpha strike a minion. The enemy hero WILL be hit no matter what.

Dont be afraid to stay in a lane with low hp. You can alpha strike a minion as it dies, and at the end of the move you will appear where YOU were originally standing, not where the minion was standing.

Playing as Katarina:

Early in the game people like to stay in lanes with low hp while they heal. If you grab flash and shunpo at level 1, you can teleport a MASSIVE distance to them to guarantee the kill. Have your lane partner just keep the other guy busy.


In general:

-If you queue up with 3 people and your center lane person has teleport, have 3 people go bottom for FB then teleport to the mid.
-If you are going for first blood in top or bottom, stand in the corner of bushes closest to the enemy team. They cannot see you untill they walk on top of you. One exhaust/stun/knockup and theyre done at level one.
-Never sacrifice yourself for an outer turret. EVER.
-Make sure you care just as much about killing enemy players as killing towers.
-Don't surrender untill your last two towers are dead. I've won more than 5 games where we had 30 less overall kills because we got a cucial ace at our last two towers, and in 40 seconds destroyed everything they had left. DONT LOSE HOPE!
-KEEP READING FORUM TIPS!
-play practice games everyday and try new item builds, or to polish your rythym with characters

How would it be a glitch? Any character with a stun/silence can use it to cancel Nunu's ult. That's why Nunu generally isn't a great hero. So you could expand your pro-tip to say:

"As any character: Whenever Nunu ults, stop his ult."

Tip for Blitz when pushing against heros blitz has quite a bit of hp and a nice passive to help you survive, and a fist that makes towers hurt in only one shot so its easy to see why you would push a tower with heros present but be warned if your ult randomly arcs one of those heros the tower will aggro you and this is never fun, so my tip is to use your ults active on the last wave of creeps before the tower its good gold and it will make sure this doesnt happen to you.

Hopefully, I didn't get ninja'd, but any Ultimate that requires the champion to remain stationary can be stopped by Alistar's Headbutt or Pulverize.

Ie: Fiddlesticks, Nunu, and I'm sure there's more.

Tip: When playing Alistar, side-laning as you approach the enemy champs can lead to awkward encounters with your turrets, if you side-swipe them with a well-timed Headbutt. And lvl 1 is ALWAYS a good time to take Triumphant Roar, since it forces you to focus or play defensive, early.

Defensive Alistar is DEFENSIVE, until you have decent gear and some levels. Then you can go Mooo-rder someone.

As Gangplank:

Use Paaarley to farm early game, not to harass until you have 2 Avarice Blades at least. If it doesn't crit, it wastes mana, but if you kill a minion, you get bonus gold!

Always get Remove Scurvy at level 2. It saves lives.

If you have the mana, use Raise Morale to deny creeps. Every bit of gold counts!

Do not neglect Pirate's ability to auto attack! many people use him ONLY for Paaarrley and they stoke their e-peen when they do 1200 crits every 6 seconds. However, you're wasting his Passive/Active attack speed bonus and potientally lower the usefulness of Remove Scurvy (won't need it if you're in the back lines) Throw a PDancer on Gangplank to make him auto attack viable!

Don't deny that your ulti can be used as a Psuedo-Fortify. It pushes backs creeps and gives you significant gold at the same time!
