hey everyone when we teach how our challengers exploit loyola mistakes to easily carry the games you think are impossible to win we usually focus on breaking down what we did and how we did it the problem with this is you're often left wondering what the loyola player who just got blasted did wrong and how they could have prevented getting smurfed on by a challenger so today we're gonna look at one of my games in platfor gold one area mmr we'll be breaking down not only what i did to easily carry these games but we're also going to test your knowledge to see if you know what they did wrong then give you the answers this guide should both help you stomp your lane opponent while also fixing common mistakes you're
00:31
probably making but don't realize it so let's get straight into it at the start of the lane i'm auto attacking one minion down and not looking to hit a collar yet let's test your knowledge right away here why am i focusing one minion and why am i not trying to hit a kali all right so for the first question i'm focusing one minion because if i don't they will all die at the same time and i'll need to use my w to get all three my w is a long cooldown and i don't want to waste it on cs i wanted to use it to trade for the second question i asked this because a lot of low-low players don't know when they should
01:05
auto-attack in a ranger's melee match up in this situation akali has fleet so if i auto her she'll just heal it up i want to wait for her to use the fleet first when she orders a minion also i don't want to hit her until she walks up to about her melee minion line if i order her then i won't take minion aggro from her range minions those are the important ones you can easily kite around the melee minions until they drop aggro moving on i'm going to grab the one cs that i focused down and since akali used her fleet now i auto her back up a bit then use w and another auto to proc electrocute and grab the cs at the same
01:36
time so in a play like this there were a few small things that made it better than what a normal low of the player would do the most important thing was how i auto her then backed up for a second this was for two reasons auto attacks have a cool down based off your attack speed if i auto her and stand there she could use q so i'm backing off for just a second to get out of her q range then as it's coming up my w in and have my next auto ready to use in proc electric u anyways after this my w is on a pretty big cooldown so all of my harass will be from auto attacks like i said before i needed to walk up
02:07
if i'm gonna auto if i just walk in and auto her i'm gonna eat range minion aggro so i walk up and grab a last hit and immediately turn around and walk back as i'm spacing to stay out of her q range if we trade one of my autos for her q her minions will hit me and i lose the trade but now i can see she's going to go for this last hit next so look how i'm positioned i'm out of her queue range just waiting for her to walk up for it when she goes in i keep the same spacing as before and make sure to hit her with an auto you might be wondering though should i still be waiting for her to use fleet before harassing this only applies to the very start of the lane because she
02:37
has 100 health if she uses fleet at 100 she doesn't heal anything so it's just a waste after that point you can ignore that concept but moving on now we're at a big point in the lane do you know why it's because i'm one minion from level two i always say in low elo i win lane in the first three levels in 99 of the games low elo meaning platter below will this akali be in the one percent of laners that respect level 2 or the 99 let's find out as i'm focusing down this minion that will give me level 2 watch out my
03:10
positioning changes i'm not moving up too far to scare her off but i'm moving up far enough to be in range to go in when she goes for this last hit then as soon as i level up i jump in since i'm positioned perfectly my w lands which is actually very important here just landing the chain won't be that much damage i want the w damage as well but i chain after w get a huge chunk from her then jump back alright so this was a huge huge mistake from the akali we're not going to ask you why that was a big mistake it's obvious she didn't respect my level 2 and took a huge chunk for it we're going
03:41
to ask you something a bit more advanced when it comes to akali's overall game plan why is this a big deal you should know in melee first ranged matchups one of the most important parts is the goal of staying healthy until level 3. this is because at level 3 the melee champion can actually start trading back reliably with all of their abilities or look for all ends and kills but if they are too weak before then they won't be able to do anything also at level 3 is when the wave starts to bounce back towards the ranged champion so the melee has low health the range can freeze and make the melee overstay to try and get a good recall
04:14
akali is doing a real bad job on the stay healthy part of this lane so let's see how i punish it with both of my abilities on cooldown i just focus on my last hits and clear the wave as the wave is crashing on her tower watch my mouse i know she's gonna walk up for this last hit so i click her very early when i'm still out of range this makes it so the moment she's in range i auto attack this is a good tip for spacing when you want to be auto attacking at max range you just click when they're outside of it then for those next few last hits watch my mouse again i'm doing the same thing in case she walks up for them just right clicking when she's out of
04:45
range after pressuring those minions under tower now it's time to go drop a ward i didn't want to do it before this or i would have missed that pressure window she missed a lot of cs there and i got a bit of poke i dropped my ward here though and not deeper in the river like i wanted because i didn't want to lose a minion while doing it alright if we look at the minion wave what's going to happen with it if neither of us touch it you see how both waves have the same amount of minions but it's on her side of the lane that means the even minion rule applies here with these two conditions met the wave will always slow push the other way
05:20
so the wave is slow pushing to me she's out of potions so this is very good i just want a last hit at this point while looking for her ass when she walks up too far when i say too far think back to level one and where i said she needs to be for me to look for her ass it's basically the same alright this next part is important no pads out here look at this cannon minion in high elo what will happen is i see the cannon and knows she's going for it she knows that i want to pressure it so she would walk up and act like she's going to auto attack it to try and bait an ability for me but then use her e or q instead she has
05:51
energy so if she baits my ability and gets the cs with hers i lose that exchange of resources this is something you never see in the elo down here they are predictable and they allow me to do this i throw chain knowing she's going to walk up for the minion and it lands then she uses e to get away but doesn't get the cannon so this concept is extremely important for any champion in mid and it even applies to range vs range matchups in high elo lane this kind of thinking is happening for almost every last hit for the entire laning phase anyways back to the gameplay here i see the low health cannon and akali
06:21
standing on top of it while walking up so i use my w to grab it because i don't have chain i just go back and back away so we're going to test you again here what was akali's mistake in that last exchange the main mistake was that she walked up to the wave for no reason there were no low minions to hit so it was just pointless odds are it was just autopilot which is one of the biggest problems in low elo you should be thinking about everything you're doing every click every ability but she made another mistake which was using her w and not trading
06:52
with it her w is one of her most important cooldowns she should have used it here to hit me with q then go back in then do it again but she just backed off also she's paying the price of wasting her e in the previous trade so she doesn't have it here this is when she's supposed to be trading remember what we talked about earlier the wave was slowly pushed back to the ranged champion and that's when the melee is level three this is where she can finally start winning trades using her minion wave and all three abilities but because she didn't trade with me here my game plan is to keep harassing when she walks up but also try and start
07:22
thinning this wave out thinning just means killing some minions to make the wave smaller the reason i want to do this is if the wave is too big i won't be able to pressure her the minions will do too much damage so to thin i'm going to do a lot of auto attacking and use my w effectively which you'll see in a bit i'm constantly auto attacking minions like i said and when she walks up to her mainly minion line like we talked about i auto attack her then immediately walk to the side and behind my wave i know she's going to try and use e right as the minion dies this isn't me reacting to her using her e it's me knowing that she's going to do
07:53
it already but after she uses it and marks this minion i'm positioned to punish in case she takes the mark and dashes in i'm ready to use e the moment she does she doesn't take it but i still stay in this area in case she walks up for these minions as expected she does so i land a chain and a few autos i didn't use my w in ignite because i didn't think i would have the damage to kill my lane isn't already such a great spot the wave is in a perfect spot so there's no rush everything is happening exactly how i said it would earlier i'm gonna freeze and she needs to decide either to overstay to try and get a good recall
08:23
or just recall now and lose a ton of experience either way the lien is completely lost for her at this point since the lane is already lost let's test him what she should have done if we go back to right before that last chunk she took what should she have done from this point she was already in a rough spot with no potions but she had 80 help she had one play she could have made from here pause here if you need more than the five seconds we give all right so what she needed to do was use that big minion wave that she had plus the one that is arriving soon to quickly clear the next wave she had all of her abilities up and she
08:59
will hit level four first so she did what i talked about earlier and baited out my chain when she walked off these two minions i would have no kill pressure and she could use her q and w to quickly kill the next wave while my chain is on cooldown her wave would be so big i wouldn't be able to freeze it or fight her but she got chained and chunked and wasted her w for nothing on top of it so the lane is done anyways we're gonna see how i punish this next as i'm doing the same things before constantly auto attacking and use my w to harass her plus hit a lot of the minions at the same time this was the effective use of w that i was talking about earlier to thin the
09:29
wave now i just need to land a chain or wait for my w cooldown so i can finish her off but i'm playing patient and still thinning the wave i go for the chain here as she walks up for this minion but she uses e to avoid it i figure she's going to try and recall now and walk up to stop her but she's under tower so i walk away then luckily for me she walks back into vision and is overstaying to try and get a good recall this will never work as she should have recalled right there and took the loss now she's going to die and lose the wave now i just need to wait for her to get greedy for last hit i know she won't be able to give up the cannon but i want to make sure she
10:00
doesn't have her e for it so if you see my positioning i'm pressuring her still trying to bait it out and it works now this next cs is getting low so i wait for her to walk up for it w to one side of her to force her movement down which makes my chain easy to land and gets me the kill alright guys so with the additional breakdown of what akali should have done you should have learned a lot more than usual laney phase has a ton of micro decisions and mechanics in it and will take a lot of practice to master but if you get good you'll climb fast by the way you should know where our guides come from our hyper improvement platform skill
