hey guys so the title of this video might have you asking what how are dragons bad and that's a pretty fair question that we're going to have to address in this video one of the absolute biggest mistakes that low elo junglers make is simply overvaluing objectives and more specifically overvaluing an immediate reward instead of a good game state i can't begin to explain how many times players in low elo have spam pinged me during my smurf commentaries and flame me for choosing to ignore dragon when they think that it's free we of course will still go on to win the game regardless of this fact and it's because
00:31
dragon just always isn't the best thing to do and before you start typing up a comment saying about how we always talk about doing objectives there is a lot of nuance in league of legends and that's what we're going to show let's get right into it to start let's just talk about how we should view league of legends at its core it's a game of resource management and decision making you spend resources of some kind to get some kind of result let's just go back to basic math and simplify this by just saying x equals y x is whatever resource we're willing to spend to get some kind of result
01:02
nothing in league is truly ever free because you're giving up the opportunity to do something else in exchange i essentially spend my time map positioning or abilities and cooldowns to receive a dragon i could however choose to spend my time on something else to get a different reward so now we need to figure out how do we choose between the two well what does dragon actually do for us mostly it gives us a pretty irrelevant buff on its own but gets us closer to saul however it doesn't really help us secure the next couple of dragons we need for it to actually make an impact
01:34
and if we don't even need the dragon soul to win the game what's really the point well denying it from the enemy can be good but when you have so much control of the game that that also doesn't matter you really shouldn't care about dragon in this particular game my individual lead is so much more important when trying to convert the game to a win if i can fight the enemy jungler and 1v1 anyone on the enemy team future dragon opportunities as well as team fights and skirmishes are all going to be so much easier at the time where my team really wanted to do dragon i risked potentially giving up my top lane advantage due to hecarim having
02:05
a free gank my entire top side access to counter jungling hecarim's bot side as well as just general pacing on my own camps giving up access to potentially all these things for a really mediocre buff just doesn't sound that great i wouldn't have been able to hit 6 by taking away the enemy raptors blow sets flash make it in time to counter the top gank blow the enemy teleport and well i'm sure you can see where i'm going with this the game could have gotten really out of hand in this sequence here if i didn't have the individual lead or the positioning on the map that i did had something gone wrong here i would
02:36
have lost access to future dragons anyways and i value having the control over the map much more than the immediate dragon even the play that happens after all of this would have been impossible because i surely would have passed away from bot after the dragon had i done it i get a free double and now makes the most sense to take drake the game has stabilized to a point where i don't risk giving up plays across the whole map and i'm strong enough that it doesn't take as much time to do as it would have before this dragon ends up being completely inconsequential anyways considering that the game ends at 16 minutes and i'm
03:07
massively ahead because i prioritize that lead instead of the objective we also know that some of the big complaints with videos like this is that some viewers can feel like it's too results based but let's just analyze a likely situation let's just say that we trade the dragon for our entire top side we just explained how much we value dragons so how do we explain how much we value jungle camps well let's just say that 4 or so camps in the early game gives us a level this level gives us on average about 600 gold worth of stats as well as even more gold value that comes from leveling up
03:37
our abilities and unlocking new ones like our ultimate at level 6. this doesn't include the average of about 100 gold for killing each jungle camp so that puts us at a rough estimate of about 800 gold for our whole top side and that's probably on the low end but we don't stop there the enemy jungler gets about 800 gold of value from taking everything but that also means that we lose out on the ability to get it doubling the actual value of their counter jungling now when we weigh dragon up to 1600 gold which one would you rather have seems pretty simple right on top of this
04:08
low evil players are notorious for ruining their tempo and overstaying to get dragons losing out on invaluable base timings and ruining their lanes even if they managed to get ahead early because of this i just won't force my teammates to stay at bad times to do dragon when i know that them being ahead in their lanes will make whatever plays i want to do later much much easier take for example this game in a recent smurf commentary that i played vayne and camille just finished killing my bot lane and now warwick runs through all of his camps to b-line straight for dragon it's really early so death timers are
04:39
short and vayne and camille should definitely be recalling right now to keep pressure and tempo in their lane by staying they give our team a chance to push out the wave and crash into tower had jin not into his wave management at least on top of warwick dying and me taking his raptors i get my gromp wolves raptors bot crab and his krugs in the time he takes to get dragon and blue buff at this point i'm two levels ahead and definitely have a huge gold lead and even though they get the first drake and the second well i use this lead i got early to just run over the rest of
05:09
the game dragon changes nothing in this game for him and it really should be treated as more of an insurance policy if you can't close out the game i ended this game 6 000 gold and 4 levels up what we're getting the first two dragons didn't even put a dent in my game plan and i actually ended up picking up the last two they would have needed for seoul because i had such a huge individual lead forget another example let's just look at a coaching session i had with a plot subscriber he ganks mid and gets a double kill onto the enemy made in jungle so it's pretty obvious from here that we're gonna look for some way to get a lead
05:40
the obvious play is just to run to dragon right well now that you've watched the first part of this video we'd hope that you'd at least question it a bit not only does he tunnel completely ongoing to dragon not even panning his camera to bot once to see if ash or maokai were divable he doesn't check the enemy jungle to take away camps or account for the fact that settling dragon as ivorn even at level 7 with red buff takes an absolute eternity well the worst case scenario happens and shaco walks up in stealth to steal it away anyways we could have denied a huge bot wave tonight to shaco's most valuable camp
06:11
and gotten two kills and plates for our adc instead could our bot lane have walked over and helped us with dragon absolutely but is it even that good for us if we could have gotten the alternative and then set up for the dragon after our base well probably not most of the time with good reset timers and a few wards you won't have to worry about the enemy taking dragon and you can just worry about everyone being ahead enough to actually contest them later on in the game the enemy team actually gets soul in this game partly because we could have been way farther ahead than we were and controlled the map better had we chosen to not get dragon
06:42
and instead do something else just like with everything in this game league is very situational and there definitely are good times and reasons you want to do dragon so don't ignore it entirely we just wanted to make a video that gets you thinking more about your alternatives and the fact that you always give up something to get something else there is no such thing as a truly free dragon by the way we just want to make sure you all know where this guide comes from skill capped it's the best place to be if you actually want to improve at league of legends we have the best and the most league of
07:12
legends guides on the internet that really do work the best part is you don't have to take our word for it if you don't climb five divisions while actively using skill caps you can claim a full refund so give it a shot and get the rank you've always wanted for season 11. check us out right after this thanks for watching and we hope you learned something until next time go get some elo and happy jungling
