main advantage is, while chasing, you can continually move, say you were annie chasing someone one hit. You can continually move, while hovering over them and spam the q button, vs trying to chase, and time your q when you think your in range

Smartcast also helps with the old "button wouldn't work" issue. How many times have you yelled , "CAST THE ****ING SPELL ALREADY. DAMMIT!!!".? Probably a lot.

During a fight, you get CCed all the freaking time. When you click Q, and before clicking on a target you get silenced, it cancels the spell. Then you are frantically hitting Q, target, Q, target and it isn't doing a ****ed thing.

I really hate dying and seeing all my abilities NOT on cooldown cuz they wouldnt' go off.


Smartcast solves this. You can cursor over a baddie and mash the button as fast as possible and as soon as your CC wears off, you will cast the ****ed spell instead of standing there like a tard.


I just wish there was an easy way to do it on a Per-Champion basis, or a way to click 1 button to set all smartcast ON or OFF for my Q,W,E,R keys.

I don't know about others, but I find having to push the shift key for every smartcast annoying. Smartcast, BTW, is setting spells to cast toward your cursor (or at enemies under your cursor if its an attack that always hits) when you hit the smart key). Anyway, click the gear at the bottom of the screen ingame and go into key bindings. Unbind the smartcasts and reassign them to q, w, e, and r rather than the shift combinations. Worked perfectly for me.

Just get used to pairing a keystroke with a click and you are basically smartcasting.

IMO, smartcast is a nifty mechanic and all, but ultimately unnecessary. Some people like it tho, so personal preference and all that jazz.
I would agree that it is mostly personal preference. I liken it to how I play Unreal Tournament (2k4 and lower, not that UT3 ****), many people bind their specific weapons to specific keys, whereas I have just learned the rotation of my mouse, and scroll through weapons.

This is an interesting idea. I think I will be trying this with Morg, for self cast black shield. I cannot count how many stuns and slows that would save me. Especially with Morg, getting ganked at mid then being slowed just ticks me off.

It works on locked camera. You can also smartcast items.

is it viable tho? i mean, with lock on camera (and i have a ball mouse) do u think it'd make much of a difference? i can definately see the Alt + for like shields and stuff i definately think that would help but idk about the shift +
