Hey everyone, when you watch guides, you might often feel like you're already doing all of the things that get mentioned, and that its really hard to actually figure out what YOU specifically need to improve on. The answer is to always look back at your own replays and just check, often times you may not believe it but you're making mistakes all the time, as we all do. During the game you won't see it, which is why its so important to actually review your own gameplay in addition to learning as much as you can through resources like this guide, or coaching. Without knowing what to look for specifically, it can be really hard to improve. So today, were going to be giving you some of THE most common mistakes that every jungler makes, across all elos, and showing you some things to look out for in your own replays. our experts have Combed through a couple of games of solo queue and didn't have to go through many before there was a lot of overlap, so, lets get started. At the start of the game, most players mess up within the first minute. and for a few different reasons. For example, hecarim has already made a mistake here, what do you think it is?
01:02
Getting as much information at level 1 is pivotal to figuring out what to do with the rest of your game. Knowing where the enemy jungler starts and being able to hide what buff you want to do from the beginning is really valuable information Because of this, spreading out your vision line at level, AKA a 5 point, is extremely important. You don't want to double up with your teammates since standing in the same spot as them doesnt give any additional information, unless of course you have some plan for a level 1 invade Some of you may be thinking, well, my team isnt going to do this. and youd be correct, most of the time they wont. But you not spreading out from them only makes the problem worse. If you can increase the amount of information you get at level 1, its always better, even if you dont get all 5 people in the right spots, your odds of spotting something go up. Even if you do spot an invade, being in the right place is to DO something about it is a different story. Because hecarim went to the bot side of the map, when the entire enemy team is seen walking in, he cant trade back vision onto the enemy blue, which would be the normal response in
02:04
this kind of situation. Another extremely common mistake at level 1 is where you place your ward. Whats wrong with what mundo just did? In this situation, HIDING where the ward is, is important so that the enemy cannot respond. A ward that the enemy knows about will just be walked around, and it can give you a false sense of security, making you think youre safer than you are. In this position, whats important here is the location of the brush. Blue side has the ability to sit in the bush and still ward pixel bush from it, giving blue side a distinct advantage on this side of the map when compared to bot side, where red actually has an advantage. When mundo walks up here, its obvious that hes going to place a ward, and kayn should now know that the bush is warded and act appropriately. Of course, neither jungler plays around this well. Mundo made the mistake of placing the ward here in the first place, and kayn responds by placing his ward in the same spot. Not only alerting mundo as to exactly where the ward is but also not punishing him for
03:05
his mistake either. So what should both junglers have done in this situation? mundo can just ward the jungle ramp, where kayn cant actually be without being seen. This way he knows that kayn has no clue where his ward is, or if he even placed it in the first place, giving extra value. Kayn on the other hand, seeing that mundo warded early can now recall for sweeper and clear it, giving valuable XP If a laner actually participates in clearing this ward with kayn, they can get level 2 a full wave earlier than normal. Meaning that A level 2 all in that normally happens on the 2nd wave, comes completely unexpected on the first, usually leading to first blood if they know how to abuse it. As you can see, theres a possibility of a hard punish from placing bad wards like this, on top of just getting little to no value out of it in general. League of legends is a game of inches, and advantages like this can make or break games. And with how often we actually see this happen, its pretty important to fix if youve been guilty of it before. Moving on to another concept, watch this clip carefully and let us know what you think hecarim
04:05
should do here? If you said something along the lines of look for crab, youre kind of right. In reality, us seeing viego on the bot side of the map, and knowing where everyone else is as well lets us look for anything we want on the opposite side. While crab is a good thing to go towards here, whats better is to look for any available dives, ganks, and counter jungling opportunities as well. This doesnt mean dont do the crab, but instead think about if you can get more than just that. Unfortunately, if hecarim had instead walked into the topside jungle, he woudave found a free gromp and wolf camp ready for him. Instead he recalls to find out that viego has taken the cross map play, counter jungled his entire botside, and hecarim basically wanders around for over a full minute before actually doing anything. This puts him super far behind viego, and overall just means hes not going to be very relevant for the rest of the game. Even missing small things like this can be catastrophic. And just to prove our point some more, lets jump to some other examples.
05:07
Khazix happens to die pretty early on from facechecking an enemy elise, and then is about to respawn. Frpm base he walks towards botside but seeing that elise is top he REALLy needs to check to see if theres anything else he can go for. Things to think about would be like counter jungling the enemy raptors, ganking mid, or ganking bot, due to knowing that elise cannot counter it. Because he doesnt use that information well, he chooses to do crab, instead of looking for the play that would normally be hard to get, but is now very easy due to seeing elise on the map. A bot gank here wouldave been extremely free, but its opportunities like this that are missed because were not using the information that is given to us. While a cross map play wouldave worked, the longer we wait, the harder it gets, not only because elise can now be on botside if she wanted to, but also because lane states wont wait for us to finish camps. You need to go when it works for the lane, not when it works for you. When khazix tries to go for the gank, the wave is pushing back out and the enemy team has no real reason to walk up especially due to the ward. so he ends up wasting an absolutely massive amount of time, and even tries to go mid while
06:11
making the same mistake. The wave is already crashed and the gank just isnt going to happen. Our warwick falls prey to not only this concept from his point of view, but also the enemies, and he even makes an additional mistake, Watch this clip, and try to point out the issues So right away, warwick decides to hit the scrying plant which reveals his location. This on its own is a huge issue, because it alerts the enemy to exactly where you are. With this info, rammus is able to gank bottom, knowing fully that warwick will not be there to counter, resulting in an immediate punish. As you climb higher and higher, enemies will get better at abusing information. And giving it away for free can completely cost you games. From this point however, warwick now knows that rammus is bottom, and should try to make a cross map play. However, because hes not thinking about this, he misses a completely free gank onto top
07:13
lane who has absolutely zero wards and a pushing wave. meaning he couldave equalized the kill that rammus got and then get the crab afterwards. In the other games that weve already used for examples, this mistake happens again and again. Hecarim sees that his top laner is super low and going to die. Hes too far away at this point to actually help, so once the fight is over, he really shouldnt show on map at all. Doing so just lets viego clean up a double kill and now know exactly what camps hecarim did by counting his CS.. He couldave easily just hid his location on map, and gone for the cross map play in ganking bot or taking bottom crab. Instead, he just lets viego not waste time because he now no longer needs to check the enemy raptors, and can just immediately push the wave and go back to his jungle. Later on, he makes the exact same mistake, showing up to a play thats already over, and giving up information that hes going to his topside. He immediately gets pinged out and viego is able to look for a cross map play on bottom, grabbing the dragon that we already saw hecarim not punish for.
08:15
In the mundo game from before, he does the exact same thing. After full clearing and taking bottom crab, he could easily just recall if there are no counter jungling or gank opportunities. This would hide his presence and make it so that the enemy has to constantly guess his location and all play around the fact that hes missing, on top of letting him buy items to be stronger for the next fights. Instead, he walks through mid, achieving nothing besides letting the entire enemy team know that they wont be ganked, and letting kayn farm for free. If youve ever played vs evelynn, you know exactly how annoying stealth can be. But the exact same thing is possible on any jungler if you just hide where you are on the map. Vision is everything in this game, because league is a game of incomplete information youre often making educated guesses instead of completely informed decisions. When you have all the information, suddenly the game just gets a lot easier. Streamers complain about ghosting, and rightfully so, for this exact reason. Not knowing things, and trying to figure things out is a huge part of the game, and removing
09:18
that by randomly showing on map all the time really ruins the amount of pressure you can have on the game. For an example of one of these informed decisions we can just look at why khazix ended up dying in the earlier clip If he was actually paying attention to the map, he would have seen that yasuo never left lane to go ward. only ever walking slightly to the top side. This means that his wards cant be anywhere but in the line brush to the top of mid. Or if he had placed a ward super early into the game, it would already be expired. Additionally, he sees sett find elise and can now just press tab and look at her to see what buffs she has and count her cs. If he wanted to gank mid here, which we can argue isnt even good in the first place, he should definitely just walk around and take a path that he knows for a fact cant be warded. Something like ganking from this angle, or even clearing raptors and looking from the other side would also be fine. But he literally goes to the only place that could possibly be warded. Not only does this waste a ton of time, it also results in his death like we saw earlier.
10:18
This just goes to show how important information gathering is as a skill in game, youll often just miss things because you dont get enough information, either from moving the camera around, or from other info like cs or buffs. At the end of the day, time management is the most important skill for junglers. And all of these mistakes either waste time by not using it effectively, or give the enemy enough information to use it against you. Making more informed and better decisions will result in more wins, and by looking through your own replays, youll often catch information you just didnt see while playing the game. Its on us to improve not only how much knowledge we can gather, but how we apply it in game. And that brings us to the end of this video, we hope you enjoyed, and let us know your feedback in the comments below.

As always, happy jungling, and we'll see you next time.
