Its really hard to miss press 3 keys in this fashion (much harder keep them hold) , but still comfortable enough to do it willingly.
Just because it's hard to miss press three keys doesn't make it favorable. That's four keys to toggle something. Just silly.

how about a press-release or button-up method, as its been alternately called? As in, spells can be targeted Sc style, would bring up the range indicator non-SC style, but will not fire until you RELEASE the left click? Would be an interesting balance, would still allow you to SC at will, but would allow you to check your range, hold your shot, and right-click to cancel as a non-SC cast.

Failing that, I think I agree with the idea of a key combo or intuitive method of toggling smart casts on or off with a click or key combo, instead of persistent menu options that can be forgotten until crucial, game-losing moments.

Another notable use is when firing into the Fog of War I may take the time to line up my skill shot and think a bit more about where it's going vs where I think my enemy may be standing.
You might like the "show smartcast ranges" option. Just hold down your smartcast key to see the range and it casts when you let off the key.

Anyhow, I support the idea. I also support per champion/account keybindings, even if you just make an API for it (e.g a bunch of files like.Qsario-default.keybindings.ini, Qsario-Janna.keybindings.ini, SomeoneElse-default.keybindings.ini, or whatever), because my cousins visit all the time and have their own ideas about what needs to be remapped where.

Ya, and you are right about the tutorial stuff. They don't even "need" to make an actual tutorial, just link to people (in-client) who do tutorials. Of course, it would be nice to have like custom challenge scenarios, like the Caitlyn Mid training scenario, built-in..but that's expecting quite a bit from such a big company
