hey everyone and welcome back to episode 4 of nama's bronze to diamond journey thus far we've covered csing recalling and basic wave management this week we'll tackle the fundamental trading tips that every mid laner needs to know in order to succeed but first let's take a look at the impact those previous lessons have had so far nama has been climbing incredibly quickly already making it to gold 3. it's a great sign of improvement especially since he started with around a pitiful 30 win rate in ranked at the start of the
00:31
series we're not shocked at all considering a lot of the fundamentals that we've touched on are largely ignored in this elo as a small note his improvement may seem unnaturally fast obviously there's delays between content that we put up on the site and when we choose to upload it here and the reason that he's gold three is because he has two extra lessons on top of the one that we'll be discussing today within this time he's also completely dropped talon in favor of lucian he just didn't like talon which is totally fine just like the other three
01:02
champions we've released a mini lucian guide on itemization and combos on the site for nama and whoever wants to check it out lucian is especially on theme with today's guide since he can be such an aggressive mid laner who loves looking for trades and as a quick reminder there's absolutely zero background coaching going on so the exact same experience he's receiving throughout all of this is available to our subscribers as always each lesson we give nama is uploaded to our site in full and the guides you see here on youtube
01:33
are just based on those lessons with that in mind let's get into today's lesson trading beating your opponent through trades can be one of the most rewarding ways of winning while also being one of if not the most difficult things to master in the game there's no greater bliss than establishing your lane kingdom and getting to say mid diff at the end of the game unfortunately though there's an insane amount of different matchups in the game which change based on levels items runes wave positioning etc learning all of these takes time and is
02:06
no easy feat but what we can do is talk about the basic fundamentals that go into almost every lane there are key concepts you need to know before you can even begin thinking about trying to learn specific lane matchups one of the first things to know about trading is that most trades are in some way based around what is going on with the wave the whole point of minion waves is obviously to get gold from them to get gold from them you need to last hit them and to last hit them you need to auto attack or cast a spell on them as the creeps get low
02:37
duh this basic concept is the simplest and yet most effective trading technique to master but more often than not players in loilo are not thinking about this enough a lot of their trades and ability usage is entirely random this leads to more missed skill shots and wasted opportunities in that clip nama used his q twice on tf and missed both times knowing that you should time your trades around minion waves what do you think nawa could have done to make his q much more likely to land if you said to wait for tf to last hit
03:10
minions you would be correct once you don't have to think too much about last hitting the enemy minions you should try and start paying attention to your own minions and seeing which ones are getting low your opponent has to stand still to auto attack them or cast a spell to kill them this simple tactic is the best way of guaranteeing that your skill shots land on your opponent throwing your skill shots randomly is not a good use of your limited mana bar pay attention to your own minions hp and plan your trades accordingly the next step to using minions during
03:41
trades is to take last week's lesson and build a slow push whenever you can abusing slow pushes for trading is also one of the core fundamentals you must learn a big reason for this is because of how creep aggro works whenever you auto attack or use a targeted ability on an enemy champion then all nearby minions will agro onto you when you have a slow push this is useful in two ways one because you have the wave advantage the enemy wave is likely very weak even if you draw a creep aggro not a lot of minions are going to damage you
04:13
two if your opponent fights back then your huge wave will aggro onto them if they over extend for the trade they might end up taking a ton of minion damage when you knew the trade by default okay so we'll be giving nama homework in a lot of these guides that you may want to do as well one of the most important times where slow pushes come into play is in ranged versus melee matchups which nama struggles in because he has no idea how to punish them yet so we recommend watching our melee vs ranged guide on the site that breaks down exactly what you should be doing to
04:44
punish melee champions as well as how they're looking to punish you next up is playing around ability cooldowns this is once again a basic concept that is usually messed up your opponents will inevitably use their abilities on the wave usually when there's a last hit that they can't get with their auto attack so you should usually wait for them to waste at least one of their abilities before hard committing into a trade like in this example annie has her q and stun ready yet nama randomly walks into trade it could have very easily waited for
05:15
andy to farm a minion and waste her stun before going aggressive like this you can actually take this concept a step further not only should you play around the cooldowns of your opponent's abilities but also their auto attacks if you think about it the auto attack also has a cooldown of around 1 second we've already established that you should be timing your skill shots around enemy auto attacks but you can also throw in extra damage by moving forward to auto attack them as they last hit for example let's look at this twisted fate clip once more
05:45
tf is notoriously exploitable with this concept his auto attack puts his w on a slight cooldown since he obviously needs to auto attack to use it and without a gold card tfq is really hard to land as well as tf approaches this minion nama could be barely outside of his auto attack range that way when tf walks up to hit it namo walks forward auto attacks and qw's tf then walks away for free just keep in mind that this tip is a lot more important during the early laning phase when auto attacks are a meaningful
06:16
source of everyone's damage for example trying to do it versus a level 9 syndra is just going to result in you getting extremely punished she definitely does not need that auto attack to kill you and that's basically it for trading fundamentals these are the key concepts that are the baseline for trading in almost every matchup with that in mind though hector gave nama a very strict rule when it comes to trading which stems from this following belief i'm going to tell you straight up that our my goal is to get you to diamond and
06:48
getting to diamond is knowing basic fundamentals and i don't think trading is required for that right it's not that trading won't make you a better player it's a skill you should learn but it isn't a skill you need to go ham on and super learn in my opinion the rule hector placed on this belief is that if nama is ever below 60 health that he must cease trading at once yes there are exceptions like if he's at fifty percent health and his opponent is at five percent or
07:20
something extreme like that the idea behind this rule isn't to get nama to play like a kda player but rather so that he focuses on one of the most important concepts when it comes to league not dying dying is obviously the worst mistake you can commit in this game if you die it allows your opponent to do whatever they want they can shove the wave for free and get turret plate gold get a recall roam to a side lane or secure an objective while you're dead you give up so much pressure when you die and you should practice being safe above all else
07:51
once you start dropping the low health levels it's very easy for anyone to just come into your lane and kill you regardless of how hard you were winning trades 60 percent health is a good threshold for learning to trade even with this rule at this elo nama technically shouldn't be dipping below this hp level anyway because most players don't know how to trade effectively it should be a good benchmark to see if he's trading properly likewise you may wonder well if dying is so terrible shouldn't i be trying to kill my opponent as much as i can
08:21
well hector is a firm believer of the timeless quote from the odd one that soloq isn't about outplaying your enemy it's about waiting for them to outplay themselves your opponents will generally find ways to kill themselves you don't need to do anything most of the time of course this isn't a rule that we're necessarily telling you all to follow this is just a personalized rule hector gave nama that he believes will help him get better faster if you don't like it then trade to your heart's content alright so we're ramping up the questions from 2-3 on
08:52
our weekly quiz question number one why are break points based specifically on caster creeps because they are the furthest minions away and getting close to kill them leaves you exposed so you want to know how to kill them as quickly as possible question number two when the enemy wave crashes with your own wave at your tower like this what can you expect to happen a bounce back slow push is the correct answer because your wave will stall here and then the next crash will end up here and question number three how much gold
09:30
do you passively gain per second the answer is about two gold per second which is always useful to keep in mind when calculating your base timings all right that's going to wrap it up for this guide we hope you all enjoyed and we'll see you next week you
