Great job, you should include a baron ward spot as well though


Ah I did place a ward there but forgot to screenshot, it's somewhat just the opposite of dragon so shouldn't be that hard.

I'll take one just for clarity

One thing you may want to add is how ward priorities shift over time. For example your team is getting beat back, you no longer want to ward middle etc as you are mostly fighting out of your base. Important places to ward at that point are the jungle in between your lanes, specifically your red/blue buffs as your teammates will want to go into jungle to switch lanes or grab buff and get romped by other team.

Obviously you still want to try to ward baron if you can but realistically you have no chance of stopping a good team from getting baron late game when playing defensively. Especially when an inhibs down as they can see you fighting the monsters.

Conversely when you are hitting their base hard you want to start forgetting about warding things on your side and ward their jungle more. Catch their guys trying to sneak around behind you etc.

Genius article. One of the most useful post i've seen on here in a great while. You sir, deserve a sticky.
Also, you get a +1 for +1 bush vision.

You should have this added to the directory of guides on the strategy forum.
