adc is the role without agency over the game's outcome or at least that's what it feels like but adcs do have some agency getting to three or four items and obliterating everything in front of you is your agency unfortunately obtaining the gold for those items is the rough part you're not an assassin who can just run around scoring free kills it's frustrating but adc is the role that requires the best macro in order to thrive in solo queue the only consistent way adcs can get gold is through farm
00:31
so you need to be on point with your cs averages the best adcs in the world always have crazy high average cs even when they go 0-10 they probably have more cs on average than you do and that's in challenger korean solo queue versus people who actually know how to punish adcs in this guide we'll be covering some low elo mistakes that we saw very often in gold and platinum which are hindering your ability to get your cs numbers high enough to actually be able to impact your games alright let's take a look at the first
01:03
replay that we'll be reviewing lucian is doing quite well for himself this game and his team has a 7k goal lead over the enemy team after winning the dragon fight lucian correctly goes bottom to fix the wave there before taking his recall and going back to base to spend his hard-earned gold despite this being around gold elo lucian actually does something pretty impressive instead of committing to paddling mid and sharing farm with ezreal he looks to farm wolves and gromp on his way to bottom this is perfect his jungler is top so he won't get raged at and he picks up extra
01:34
farm to accelerate his lead even further but after clearing a few minions down here lucian immediately backs off and proceeds to run to safety instead of continuing to push why do you think this was a terrible decision if you looked carefully you would have noticed that there was no reason for him to be afraid while lucian did wolves we saw yone in mid lane and teemo top now he did see rakan in the area clearing his vision as he approached the bot wave but as he clears it we also see jinx and jarvan on the minimap the only person that is here is rakan
02:08
and there's no way that you'd die solo to rakan as lucian he could have kept pushing and accelerated his farming but instead goes to middle which isn't terrible but it's also not ideal after farming a couple of waves in mid he makes his way back bottom and farms blue on his way there appropriately unlike last time lucian does actually push very aggressively in the lane this is correct we've seen four members of the enemy team on the map in top lane there's only one possible player that could be down here the problem is that lucian doesn't play
02:39
this next segment appropriately and gets hard punished by the o4 enemy unit now he's forced to back and loses all sideline pressure what do you think he did wrong this time the mistake was pushing tower instead of just taking the enemy krug camp yonei was owned for but that doesn't mean that you can just disrespect him as an adc look at how lucian got engaged on since he's so close to the enemy tower lucian doesn't have many options and can only kite toward yone not away from him lucian knew this would be a 1v1
03:12
if he does krugs he has so much more area to work with and as a fed lucian with both summoner spells he should very easily be able to deal with a weak yonei if he tried to contest him at krugs it may not seem like much but being chunked out here cost lucian a free krug camp and that wave he left behind the problem is lucian kept making small but constant mistakes in the side lane all game this really kept his cs numbers down compared to jinx who just power farmed he very quickly got overtaken in power and jinx was able to hard carry the game
03:43
somehow getting six items way before lucian could the lesson here is simple always be aware of where every enemy is on the map so you can make the best decisions possible surrounding side waves do do minions naturally pushing on the winning team if you don't make the correct choices it's very easy for your opponents to catch up since farm is always being funneled into them by the way if you're enjoying the video a sub to the channel would be incredible alright let's move on to another replay to discuss another common mistake that we
04:14
see here ash and her team are doing fairly well for themselves they're not super far ahead like the lucian game before but with their small lead they managed to take the dragon for free let's watch what happens next after ash and her team all path toward mitt and initiate the aram fight that we've all come to know and love ash's team loses badly and their slight lead is thrown so what should ash have done well the answer is simple her team sees everyone on the map after dragon yasuo should go bottom to pressure the empty lane
04:45
when he doesn't ash should take over his duties and go herself she sees everyone on the map so she can just go bottom after dragon by going mid she's basically incentivizing her teammates to fight a random 5v5 at this stage of the game with only one core item completed rng aram fights aren't the best way to snowball a lead as adc he doesn't do nearly enough damage to have any agency over who wins this fight at all if she had gone bottom she could pressure the tower forcing someone on the enemy team to respond
05:15
when they do ash could rotate over and force a numbers advantage fight in mid potentially this has way more potential for going well than the fair fight we just saw or if no one reacts to her pushing her team could just defend while she takes the bottom tower for free either way she has a lot of impact on the map by going by we chose this specific replay though because the enemy was pushing very aggressively in mid if ash goes bottom isn't it just likely that her team engages without her anyway yes that is a big possibility what we
05:48
want to stress is that it shouldn't matter to you whether it might be likely that your teammates will die if you leave them alone you have to have some level of trust for your teammates remember you're all the same elo at the end of the day do you go mid at level 1 because your mid might randomly die if you don't no you obviously go bottom because being paranoid about your teammates playing badly won't do any good that's along the same mentality that you should have when making decisions like these in this situation ash should just tell her team hey i'm going bottom to fix the
06:19
wave and pressure care hopefully her teammates play accordingly and allow her to pressure the bot lane and even even if her team fights regardless of her saying that and lose the fight who cares it doesn't mean that you made the wrong decision and being results oriented when learning the game is pointless lastly even if ash's team happened to fight while she went bottom she would at least be cross mapping the bot lane tower in trading objectives so it isn't even that bad once again we saw the results of ash's actions later on
06:49
into the game she kept foregoing farm in order to stay tightly grouped with her team and it resulted in her being extremely behind in cs the whole game as we said at the start the whole point of adc is to do damage and when you tickle the enemy team you're literally useless and of course she loses the game eventually okay on to our final replay in that last one we talked about what you may want to do when your teammate isn't making the optimal macro choice in this one we'll take a look at what you should be doing when your teammate's macro choices
07:21
are actively hurting your ability to farm just like the other games jyn and his team have a decent lead over the enemy after taking dragon jin sits mid waiting to collect some farm let's watch what happens lux is coming from base so by the time that jin is safe enough to hit the wave he has to share most of it with lux then they rotate bottom together seeing if they can pick up a kill onto lulu there and end up sharing more farm afterwards they then rotate together up to mid to share more farm but jyn gets caught in the process oh
07:52
awesome lux saved the day and turned it around ah but then they over chase into katarina and die hopefully you get how absolutely random and inefficient everything we just saw was jyn and lux shared so much farm and experience throughout that their rotation together towards bottom gave up mid control entirely which is what allowed this first pick on jin to happen in the first place jing got lucky that lux obliterated the twitch but then a bit unlucky that
08:22
katarina killed them all he had absolutely no say over anything that happened do you think this is how jackie love teddy deft or any good adc player plays the game just hoping that stuff works out by wandering around with their team the whole time of course not they're actively looking to make good decisions to lead to consistent predictable results so what was the problem here well luck's path toward middleweight gin was already there that's not jin's fault lux is the one paddling toward him to share farm
08:52
which we know isn't ideal you can't expect your teammates to make the correct macro choice every time though jyn had two chances to find a new source of farm for himself and evade this situation did you notice when first chance that he had was when he saw lux paddling middle at the beginning of the painful sequence knowing that she's coming he could snatch up most of the wave before she gets there and then path towards top if you notice the wave is closer to his side of the map this means that the wave is slow pushing toward the enemy going up there to fix the wave would be
09:26
ideal anyway if you don't know what fixing a wave means basically if the wave is slow pushing away from you you want to crash it into an enemy tower as quickly as possible if you leave it as is the slow push will kill a ton of enemy minions denying your team farm while also building up a huge wave for your opponent to farm in the process fixing slow pushing waves is one of the most important things to learn about macro the second option that we had was to just stay bottom after this wave it's not ideal but he could technically just chill here and wait for the next
09:57
wave to come into him with this strategy he'd be getting solo gold and experience and then he could then push that and rotate to his team that way he can build a numbers advantage through macro by forcing someone to go react to the wave that he pushed okay this may all sound idealistic but with practice you can start to see consistent results by realizing when you should go to side lanes to pressure let's take a look at an example where this is done fairly well kaiser is laning bottom when her team comes to aid her they score a kill on
10:28
bard and things are off to a good start notice how kaiser steps up looking to push the tower to punish bart's death but then stops and immediately starts to channel her recall that's because camille is staying in bot if kaiser stayed then her and camille would just be sharing tower and minion gold we should know how inefficient that is by now camille should technically be the one recalling and going back top allowing kaiser to stay down here but if your teammate isn't doing what they should be doing then you need to take responsibility and take over kaiser goes top and finds a source of
10:59
solo farm for herself we'll just disregard the solo kill on wukong it's not like kaiser plan for him to misplay and overstay but notice how she can keep pressuring taking a bunch of waves for herself and even the enemy krug camp not only is kaiser getting solo gold but so is camille she got a ton of waves and solo tower gold so she gets to snowball even harder now that is good macro these types of decisions get you consistent results with farm funnel not only under yourself but your teammates as well enabling
11:30
everyone on your team to get strong from solo gold it is super important that as an adc you get comfortable with the idea of being in a side lane most of the game your teammates simply don't have good macro so you can't just sit in mid like adcs get to do in high elo you need to actively be making up for their mistakes and that usually involves you being alone in a side lane and a huge component in doing that is lesson one which was having the map awareness of where everyone is that you can make informed decisions whenever you do decide to go off on your
