everyone today we'll be taking a look at some of the most common mistakes we've been seeing lately out of low elo supports we'll be primarily seeing high gold play but of course these concepts will apply to anyone below that elo and will also be giving more advanced solutions to their mistakes that we almost never see even diamond or masters level players doing so no matter what your elo is we'll have you covered here anyway let's jump straight into it with this leona ezreal versus thresh vayne lane and we'll be starting with leona's pov
00:30
though we'll be looking at mistakes from both support players here throughout this clip the first thing that we see is leo and ezreal sitting in the river brush here after minions meet presumably attempting a fake leash we really really just do not like the fake leash and hope to almost never see it again first off what's the cost well naturally you aren't at the wave right away and able to make choices about what to do with it which is just generally bad you're losing out on options second look at the wave here it's very hard for leona to do anything at this
01:02
point she can't really auto maybe only once without using an execute which we've talked a lot about wanting to save for the second wave if possible so she just really can't hardly out of the wave or fight for the push at all she's just stuck there so we know the cost what's the game well almost always nothing for this game an example shen walks into lane later than they do missing health and energy i'm not sure anyone is fooled here even if no one else on your team leashes and obviously gives it away the benefits of
01:32
this are extremely low the likelihood that the enemy team makes assumptions based on your trickery and that your jungler abuses those assumptions yeah just very unlikely in solo queue unlike getting an advantage from having the push early which they could have guaranteed here anyway with that little rant out of the way we can see that yeah leona is just kind of useless running around doing nothing for the entirety of the first wave only because thresh totally afks as well do we see the lanes hit level 2 at the same time we've talked a lot
02:04
about this but in thresh's position here you don't want to over push to the point where you're hurting your ability to slow push and build and crash the wave but you can't just completely not hit the wave and allow the enemy lane to hit level 2 at the same time when they have no right to then thresh really decides to just go for it flashing in finding the double flip eventually pretty randomly it turns out that the mid lane tryst has roamed down and this results in a one for two trade from thresh now we don't want to talk too much about his decision to go in here but what i do want to point out again is
02:36
that they should have had the level 2 advantage off the fake leash nonetheless at which point this play would have been way way better and way way cleaner anyway jumping back to leona's pov she respawns after the bot lane fight what would you do at this point if you were hurt take a few seconds to think if you said to run straight mid nice job tris should be running back there soon ari is pushing and echo is nearby so this is just a great look at a gank rome and of course ezreal will be recalling any second now
03:11
so there's no reason at all to be bottom by yourself instead we see leona doing kind of a halfway thing running between mid and bottom again there's zero reason to lean toward bottom at all right now just remember that leona died almost 10 seconds earlier than bane and you can use this knowing how long it would take you to reach lane to know whether or not as has time to push before being threatened in this case he definitely does and we can see that despite her extremely inefficient pathing she's still almost there in time for
03:42
this play where ekko ends up using flash to follow ari's flash and still goes down had leo been there for the play it definitely could have made a big difference in how this turned out anyway what would you do next here as leona it's kind of awkward because as still hasn't based but will be in just a second take a moment to think so hector said that his plan here would be to simply move up into the raptor brush here and simply wait for ari to return then dive her again we know trist will be pushing because it's trist
04:16
ari just flashed tristana has a ton of burst damage and ignite and if you kill ary when there's a wave built crashing into her it's gg for the assassin again this is all totally fine because as is basing so late arya will get back to lane well before ezreal will so there's plenty of time oh and we know that mundo is top we saw him on two wards clearing bot at the start of the game so he'll have rotated to top side meaning only thresh can find leo in the jungle which is obviously not a threat instead leona just drops a ward and ends
04:48
up wandering aimlessly for a very long time you can see how lost she is we can see that ari gets back well before as and with a decent sized wave crashing perfectly on time if leo was there and just walked at her with q she's dead even if leona somehow died during the dive it would be totally worth it with ari losing the wave anyway let's jump back a few seconds and swap over to thresh's pov off his respawn what's his way state going to be when he gets back take a second this one should be easy
05:22
if you said slow pushing out away from them off the bounce yeah as got off a clean crash so that is what we're going to see now how should this simple fact influence thresh's buy once again take a second if you said it's extra important for him to grab a pink ward really nice job they're going to be pushing out slowly with no wards currently down and neither of them have flash this is easily one of the most dangerous moments where you're the most exposed to ganks
05:52
in the bot lane instead of buying a control ward though thresh picks up a cloth armor not at all what we would suggest then when he gets back to lane he pretty quickly drops his trinket ward in the tri-brush the wave continues to push quickly more or less invalidating that ward and sure enough the enemy jungler drops by for the easy setup so just remember that when you're coming back from base to a wave that will be pushing away that's often a time to be extra wary of ganks and really prioritize vision skipping forward about a minute and
06:23
jumping back to leona we see they're just about to finally crash this wave it took a while since leo was afk and ez isn't the fastest pusher and what we want to talk about here is swifty priority right now leona has almost exactly 600 gold and if you can get a clean base for your swifties we really recommend doing so as they'll just upgrade your character pretty significantly your ability to roam collapse engage etc everything your character wants to do will be leveled up
06:53
so while we would normally praise a support who on full health and mana is choosing to be on the map instead of recalling we want to point out that in this case we do think it's the wrong choice and obviously this is a bit anecdotal but had leona recalled right away she would have had a really good roam timing at which point topside was looking like a pretty good spot to be as he's low on hp and about to start pushing out jack's coming back to lane soon this is a great time to move and hover your laner to allow them to crash and reset
07:23
or just be there in case a play breaks out again as is going to be basing and they crashed so the wave will bounce back where he can farm safely under tower so it's totally fine to leave him alone for a bit we won't bore you but we did the math and had leona followed this line he would have been right on time to stop this fight topside that resulted in a 2-0 for the enemy team which is a huge deal for such snowbally champs as jackson mundo so looking back on the first 7 minutes here both supports repeatedly made huge mistakes or just missed great
07:54
opportunities for advantages if you can play well on support and get your fundamentals down you'll have more impact than 99 percent of support players do below diamond anyway let's jump on to our next game once again joining with some high gold gamers and we have the classic xiaori khan versus leona tristana for this game we'll just be sticking with rakan's pov and early on in this lane there isn't a ton that we want to talk about so we'll just move somewhat quickly through it so that we don't lose out on too much context as it is just a short
08:24
bit of gameplay neither lane gets the clear level 2 but a bit later leona finds a decent engage starting the fight and nearly picking up the kill as xayah wasn't ready for that second q no one ever expects the cooldown to be that short the lane calms down for just a bit but then leona finds another engage and yikes not ideal for rakan there as he kind of sort of has the right idea but just doesn't understand how the champions interact leading to his adc's death thankfully he gets the return
08:55
kill but what would you do at this point here take a second to think if you said to push nice job however there's a bit more going on here that we should explore so let's do that first you generally want to push because these minions are going to die well before zaya gets back as it's already pushing anyway and if you can crash the wave that will result in the most farm for zaya when she gets back because the wave will bounce back to her and collect up for her however the potential issue we're facing here is that this incoming wave isn't
09:29
too far off and you're a level 3 recon not exactly a monster wave pusher so what if you don't get the wave crashed in time isn't that bad well let's just make sure that doesn't happen for this let's jump back to a strategy we saw in last week's video from hector as he was playing lulu in masters check out what he does here as he runs into more or less the same problem where he's not sure if the wave will crash so he just drags it tanking tower for a moment and easily allowing the wave to reach tower rakan could definitely consider the same
10:01
play here as the enemy jungler started bot side and it's highly highly likely that he would be up top by now instead though he just pushes out and the wave doesn't cleanly crash which causes xayah to lose multiple last hits and be pushed up in lane when she gets back instead of being able to just sit back and wait for it to come to her anyway rakan comes back into lane after resetting and we see this situation here what's your goal slash plan right now as for khan take a second to think
10:33
if you said to just stay back and let that pushing wave come in and crash nice job we're already down a kill to tryst that combined with the enemy lane having wave control is just a huge red flag to not fight and either let that wave hit tower so that it'll bounce back and we can have wave control or freeze if it's possible anyway let's watch the lane play out for about 15 seconds see if you can find the moment that tilted hector off the face of the earth and had him ranting go [Music] what do you think did you spot it so if
11:21
you said executing that canon minion great job and you should know why right we just talked about wanting to let the wave come to them so this is just a huge disconnect from that plant all this did is elongate this losing position as we can see here as the wave remains in this mostly neutral spot but with the enemy team having item advantage and wave control for quite a while just slowly slowly coming in as xayah has to be scared on every cs and very very narrowly avoided the deadly engage
11:51
thankfully though about 20 seconds later leona looks for a pretty bad engage here near the tower where first off trist can't really do much but also they are exposed to ganks and sure enough nocturne is there for the punish but i want to highlight what comes next it looks like he considers moving mid which could be fine but as the next wave comes we really want to start thinking about maximizing our tempo off this play this means mainly two things the first of which very obviously is pushing the wave as quickly as possible
12:22
which he's obviously not doing here he really messed this up already executing that low melee minion not maximizing his autos and not even w either this for sure costs them a not insignificant amount of time especially not saving execute for canon but the second thing that we want to reiterate something we've touched on in the past is getting your recall off slightly before your adc as they're finishing the push and we can see that rakan waited until this wave was totally pushed out before even starting to think about recalling than doing it very
12:54
inefficiently in this specific case with xayah rakan this is extra important as your early recall becomes hers however even without that getting back 5 to 10 seconds earlier can allow you some nice extra buffer time for roaming and vision with more or less no cost as long as you don't finish your recall too early before your adc fully pushes out and they get collapsed on or something like that but this is very easy to avoid just time your recall finishing with them finishing the push by the way you should know where these
