hey everyone today we'll be showing you some huge mistakes that pretty much every low elo support player makes that keeps them from climbing so if you're sick of struggling to climb and don't know why you can't this one's for you alright but first for our question of the day if you had to choose between the current more tank support focused meta or a more ranged enchanter-centric one which would you prefer personally i think that early in the game tank supports encourage a much more engaging playstyle of looking for aggressive all ins dives
00:31
roaming etc however later into the game it can sometimes start to feel like your value is falling off a bit which is never fun and of course it can often feel like enchanters or ranged supports are the opposite more linear early on but scaling and becoming a force later into the game so which do you prefer honestly i just want both to be viable so that i can bounce back and forth between the two but obviously that level of balance is easier said than done anyway we would love to hear your thoughts alright moving on to our first
01:02
big mistake that we see low elo players making which is not understanding how wave control influences when and how they should use their cooldowns for this we'll join with this gold elo set paired up with ezreal facing off against nautilus tryst the lane starts off with both sides leashing and while set doesn't do anything to help as push it was always going to be difficult against tristana's e so we're not too mad about them losing the push and honestly not much happens for a while here as set and as both back off to respect the level 2 and
01:33
not is playing really passively so there's just not too much threat anyway now let's watch for a little bit here and see if you can spot what set does wrong here beyond the obvious so what do you think aside from missing his e which is obviously bad what was the other big mistake here take a second to think if you said something about how in a few seconds here they'll have wave control great job so this wave is just starting to bounce back into as and sets control they're down one minion
02:13
but their next wave is about to arrive way sooner than the enemies this is basically the worst time to use long cooldowns like sets with his e being 16 seconds and w18 this shows a fundamental lack of understanding for wave control and how it influences your play style throughout the lane if we keep moving forward we see that this whole time while they have more minions set's abilities are on cooldown so he can't move up he can't threaten he can't do what you pick set to do look at this moment right here especially
02:44
the enemy team is stacked up with no minions and what is set doing sitting back with no spells up and what we want to make sure that you understand is that this isn't just about the damage that minions will do think about how minions will influence the trading of this lane with more minions as we'll have a much easier time landing q and nautilus will have a way harder time landing a hook it just completely warps the strengths of these champions and who will come out on top by not understanding this set lost a big window to punish the enemy lane
03:15
understanding wave control and how it completely changes your play style is crucial on any champion but this idea of not wasting spells right before you gain it is especially important on champions with longer cooldowns like the ones you see here and remember if you want to improve fast and get the rank that you've always wanted then check out our hyper improvement system at skillcap.com we have professional courses by the top players smurf commentaries where a challenger player walks you through how to climb out of every rank from iron to diamond and we upload tons

04:18
very least skipping forward a bit to four minutes not tries an ill-advised engage on the deceptively tanky set his tristana makes some interesting life decisions potentially reminiscent of a certain lcs player can't quite put my finger on who and ends up going down you know sometimes when you're playing tryst it just comes up malphite anyway with that beauty out of the way let's see how ezreal and seth follow up on their kill as they push out the wave then hang around committing a ton of
04:50
time for three quarters of a play not even beginning to back off until trist is already back in lane now i don't think i need to go over why this was bat they literally got nothing not even the plate and lost out on a free base both ezreal and set messed up here moving forward they do both end up basing finally and we can see that on their way back to lane minions are certainly going down to tower since trist was able to push the wave out quickly so what could set have done to salvage this mistake
05:20
take a second to think if you said to stick around and freeze the wave nice job we know that nautilus backed off 99 chance that he based so if that stays the lane is just a 1v1 between him and tryst all he has to do is stay in lane hold the wave for a few seconds catch it and freeze it there once the wave is frozen he can just recall knowing that ezreal will be safe under tower with the wave frozen there allowing him to heal back up and run to lane this is a simple play that salvages
05:52
ezreal's terrible decision to overstay in lane that in him nearly an extra 10 cs knowing how to drag your adc to farm and salvage their poor base timings is something that i don't think i need to convince you has value alright moving on for this next one we're hopping to a new game joining with this gold elo brand paired up with vayne facing off against morgue trist we're going to be focusing on how in certain situations it's very important to at level one potentially beyond think about your abilities as tools for
06:23
pushing not just harassing which is the use that we see pretty much every low elo player tunneling on so as the wave starts first we did this thing where we pretend to leash which just don't get to lane and get the push now right away we can also see that bran is just sitting way too far back not ottowing the wave we have a lot of issues here it drives us crazy if i'm the vane i'm already tilted he finally walks up and throws a pretty bad w missing everything and it was just a bad time to throw it anyway
06:55
and what we really want to focus in on here is that moments like this are the perfect time to throw out those aoe abilities at level one first trist is autoing so there's an actual reason to shoot your skill shot right now but beyond that she's also standing right by the way so bran can both guarantee land harass and help to push the wave all in one button press this is something that you can do on a lot of supports such as any of the ones that you see here just to name a few depending on which skill you start with for champs like
07:25
lulu who only sometimes take q and what we really want to stress is that hitting the wave is often actually the more important piece here mid laners do this all the time using spells to control and push the wave but for some reason we almost never see low elo support students thinking of their spells only as a tool for harass so we just want to encourage you to number one try to do both at the same time when possible but number two just start to think of your spells as pushing tools early on when needed like in this game where
07:57
trist out pushes vayne if left alone awesome moving on to the next one we're going to talk about how you should have an alarm bell reaction to consider punishing your opponents when they stack up and why it's so effective for this we're joining with a gold elo thresh paired up with an awesome all in threat kaiser up against soraka lucian we're going to jump right into the lane phase here near three minutes just to see what's happening a bit before we stop thrash and kaiser are getting shoved in a bit but they are still plenty healthy
08:27
lane is going fine nothing too major has happened early on now right here we see that soraka and lucian are just completely stacked on top of each other and this should immediately set off some alarms in your head as a moment to consider just flashing in and engaging why well your odds of a positive trade in sums is really off the charts let's take this situation for example if thresh flashes in on top of them plays then winds up a hook who do you think is going to flash probably or very possibly both of them
08:59
right they have no idea who you're aiming for they're on top of each other they're panicking yeah this is just a really really good way to pick up a sums lead that you can then use to pick up a kill later on if you don't during the initial all-in and tons of melee engaged supports can do this to varying degrees of success but all of them can and should consider a play like this it's also not just melee supports sona with ultimate even lux could flash in for a q you get the idea but it is especially
09:30
effective on those engaged supports not only because they're usually more threatening but a lot of them also run hex flash so trading your flash becomes even better now obviously i'm saying that bells should go off not that you should just instantly go obviously you still need to think about whether or not you're actually in a position to win a fight here thresh and kaiser have awesome all in lucian has cleanse so thresh can ignite soraka and really threaten to kill her with ease anyway instead thresh just threw out a really low percentage hook
10:02
throwing hector into a rage then soraka literally just hard-ends walks into play and we can see just how fragile she is imagine if we had done this with hookup no minions in the way you get the idea alright moving on to our fifth and final mistake for today we're going to be talking about how low elo supports constantly just drop useless autopilot wards during the early lane phase for this one we'll join here with this lulu paired up with the kaiser up against alistair kate as the lane starts we see lulu dancing around a bit
10:34
saying hello to all her minions before moving in for some brush control then dropping this ward here now if this ward doesn't immediately fill you with a primal fury we have a problem there are so so many reasons why this is a terrible wart and the thing is i bet if we talked to this lulu and asked her if she thought it was a good ward we hope and think she would say no the problem likely isn't that lulu thinks that this is a great ward to place it's that she didn't think in the first place just autopiloting as
11:05
is so common but in case there's any confusion here let's talk about this warp first when lulu places this it's literally impossible for it to be giving her any value she sees kate and alistair standing in lane it cannot possibly be useful right now second you're up against an alistar you're going to get the push so you're going to be able to just walk up into this brush and stand there once again completely negating the need for this work and even if somehow they don't get the push here the lane stays pretty even and lulu ends
11:37
up wanting vision in this brush then it would be much better to place it when alistair is about to hit level 2. placing it while he's at level 1 absolutely not a threat just makes no sense so what's the point here beyond this specific ward was bat well what we want to encourage you all to do is go through a couple of recent replays skim the first five minutes or so when you have so few awards when they're so precious and stop every time you place a ward stop and think about why you placed it was it good was it bad why so could it
12:09
have been better taking the time to actually think about and consider the importance of your early warding is going to fast track you to doing the same live in your games anyway that's going to do it for our five mistakes for today just remember if you want to improve fast and get the rank that you've always wanted then check out skillcap.com link in the description below otherwise you know the deal make sure to like subscribe and hit the bell icon to get more premium guides with one goal in mind making you a better player
