Twisted Fate Guide: By TheAggressor
(Ill update this more when I find time )
This guide is for a Twisted Fate farming-ganking style of play. The emphasis is not so much on towers (which a lot of guides seem think TF is good for which he isnt IMO).
Why isnt TF good for towers? Well hes easily squished, and you wont have gate and destiny up fast enough to escape when you needed if your helping your team and pushing. In other words, unless you know the whole team is far away from the tower, pushing a tower with TF is a bad idea alone.
This is build Ive been using to dominate about 70% of my games. 30% of the time I get utterly destroyed because I got too aggressive, and 9 out of 10 times I die because its my fault rather than their skill. Good news is I took good notes and having played over 760 games of which almost half Ive been TF, I can say I have a pretty good feel for what works best for him.
There are very few heros who wreck TF if you know how to play him right, and Ill be putting the major anti-tf-hero counters as Ive found. Most notably Yi and Fiddle Sticks.
What TF is also NOT: A solo hero in a 1v1 fight on equal ground. Your job is NOT to engage fully healthy, similar level heros and take them out. Your job is to make the numbers un-even. If theres a 2v2 battle, you port in and make it 3v2. Or if blood has been spilled, you go in and mop up the pieces. You can get triple kills easily when your team loses a close 3v3 fight. You can port in, wild card the weak one and stun the healthiest. Then wild card him again with an ignite. The key with TF is playing your cards right (pun intended) and ganking when you make the odds UNEVEN in YOUR favor. If you get this wrong, and gate into a massacre, you will lose the edge of TF.
TF is not a hero who gets better with age. If you die 2-3 times early with no kills, you will NOT recover. The opposite is true for heros like Yi, Shaco, Twitch etc because they get strong late game. You wont ever get to do that because your farming ability power will be messed, your ability power will be too low, and your HP will not keep you alive in future fights. So the key with TF is EARLY domination and not dying avoidable deaths (and they are avoidable).
The good news is that if you get 2-3 kills in 10 minutes (which can be quite standard) you can literally dominate the rest of the game. Ill get into all this later on.
Remember: Make the odds UNEVEN in your favor, dont think you can solo any hero at equal strength, and your job is to take out their DPS.
