one of the main concepts that we discuss in a ton of our adc videos is how team fighting is one of the worst things that you can do and why avoiding it is key to your success we always advocate for learning how to appropriately side lane so that you can farm 10 cs per minute and become a late game monstrosity before anyone else that being said team fighting is actually unavoidable in league of legends some objectives are too important to give up in grouping and fighting over them is inevitable in most games therefore we'll be covering three major
00:32
mistakes we see from low elo adcs that's making their team fighting experiences worse and preventing them from consistently winning them more often one of the biggest mistakes that we see is players overvaluing meaningless damage or target selection this is more easily explained by just looking at examples so let's jump right into one this game ezreal and his team are up a substantial amount of gold over their opponents and are posturing around dragon to fight for the soul although they're late for the dragon the initial engage goes pretty well bran
01:03
is super out of position so they get a free kill to kick things off the fight scatters and darius chases towards senna and teemo so ezreal follows here's where he messes up let's take a look at everyone's scores teemo here is not a priority target he's not doing too well and he's already quite low ezreal will of course e forward and try to take him out while putting himself in position to be easily blasted by the fed sena let's rewind back to this moment lesson one here is that you don't need to finish off kills it can feel annoying
01:33
when someone gets away with no hp but at this health level teemo dies to a gust of wind he cannot participate in the fight anymore and he's as good as debt all he gives you is 300 gold which is meaningless at this stage of the game therefore ezreal should obviously just hit the ceno while she's preoccupied finishing off his darius that would be a much better use of his time since killing the teemo is kind of pointless at this moment but the bigger lesson here is actually to just take a look at the state of the fight in general
02:04
hecarim is massively fed and we can clearly see on the minimap that after killing bran he was looping around to flank everyone this can be a hard mindset to get into but you should always ask yourself especially as an adc if you doing anything really matters in the fight at all ezreal making a big play isn't going to win this fight it's the fed hecarim that was hard carrying the game that is going to kill everyone we can see that come to fruition after ezreal's death hecarim obliterates senna on contact and proceeds to clean up the rest of the
02:34
fight at the end of it all hecarim is the only person left standing and proceeds to push mid for the inhib looking back at this moment one final time ezreal should have the mindset to realize that his actions are meaningless here killing teemo does nothing and iain forward just gives senate the chance to score a counter kill if ezreal hitch has been patient and waited for hecarim they can clean the fight together and instead of getting just one inhib they could easily get two that leads to an easy bearing capture after
03:04
which should easily close out the game let's look at another example from this ash together with her team they're pushing mid desperately trying to get something in return after the enemy team got barren luckily for them akali misplayed and got taken out basically for free immediately after ash makes a similar mistake to ezreal she moves forward to get a few auto attacks onto rengar why what's the point does this damage do anything it's not like she or anyone else can follow up on it what is the purpose of doing damage to rengar here these are the kind of
03:36
questions that you should be asking yourself when team fighting and reviewing your own replays overextending for that meaningless damage just puts her out of position and allows the nikko to come in and instantly kill her looking back all ash had to do was hit the free nautilus here while kiting toward a safer location from there she can still do damage but also be able to react to any threats that come from either side of the jungle now we're not trying to be hindsight analysts here and say that this small positioning fix would have won her the fight that being said it's better than pushing
04:07
forward for irrelevant damage that puts her into a horrible position with no way out it's crazy how often we see this mistake very likely this is a symptom of having chat available in low elo and players constantly telling you stuff like dude hit the carry what are you doing this likely leads low elo adcs into having a terrible mindset that they should always be looking to do damage to the most valuable target at all times even though that can very very easily get you killed almost every high elo adc will literally tell you the same thing when it comes to
04:38
team fighting as the adc you don't need to overthink things since you're so squishy you should generally just hit what's free and in front of you this is literally the most consistent way of winning fights as an adc the second big issue that we see a lot in low elo marksmen is almost always going down with the rest of their team being in adc is kind of like being a crew member on a ship you can't steer the ship like the captain does but you're obviously an essential part of the team that helps get the ship to its final destination as a crew member you do not decide the
05:10
course the ship is taking the captain is usually your tanks or engaged support who dictate your route and sometimes your captain is going to steer the wrong way and that is most definitely not your fault there is nothing that you can do about that what is your fault though is not being on a lifeboat 10 minutes before the ship collides with the glacier let's take a look at that clip again tristana and her team have a sizable lead and are looking to press their advantage but as solo q players do yasuo and udyr begin to fight at a really awkward location that gives the
05:40
enemy team the advantage of going in and out of base at their pleasure as the fight goes on we see udyr in cc being railed on by the free firing vane on top of that yasuo is in a hook and the enemy team is mostly full hp and ready to continue fighting tristana should just press w and get out asap as an adc you need to be able to recognize that a team fight has gone south and instantly evacuate the area maybe it's the fear of being pinged as your team wipes they may question mark you flame you and threaten to report you for ditching them
06:12
during a fight if that's what your concern is about leaving people then you need to mute and trust yourself dying because you don't want to be flamed is literally the worst reason to die in this game let's look at another example of a similar situation kaiser and her team get a kill on an overextending wukong and senna and proceed to convert that into baron a little later they're pushing bottom and decide to rotate toward mitt as they are her team decides to settle in for a fight in the middle of the enemy jungle let's consider a few things here number
06:43
one they have baron when you have baron you push towers you don't look to fight the point of baron is mostly to buff minions the combat stats it gives aren't that crazy number two kai'sa's vladimir is top without teleport this will be a 4v5 number three kaisa has no self-peel tools available besides flash at the moment and chase versus a zed and a woo kong just leave go mid and push let your three teammates die your goal is to get out of low elo right you won't do that by committing to
07:14
every call your low elo teammates make most of their calls are bad it's a really valuable team fighting skill to know when to immediately dip out of a situation like we said the bad fight isn't your fault but it's definitely your fault if you die following an obviously bad call and this final clip is just to demonstrate a good example of when an adc did things right kaiso was bottom fixing a wave while her team randomly decided to fight without her she manages to get there and only her graves has died so far as the fight continues wukong lands a
07:45
decent two-man knock-up kaiser stays away seraphine lands a massive four-man alt kaiser stays away yasuo lands a juicy three-man knock-up kaiser stays away absolutely beautiful disciplined to realize that every one of those plays was just a bait that would have gotten her instantly killed is the sign of a player who has had enough of solo q stupidity that's exactly how you should aim to approach the dumb situations that your teammates try to put you in the third and final mistake that we often see is not utilizing the biggest benefit of
08:17
having bad teammates you should most definitely be using your low elo team as bait for important enemy abilities in fights this tristana clip is a perfect example of what we mean tristana has a death wish since she decided to gail force forward against a malphite yasuo shaco team she went right into a box got feared knocked up and instantly deleted and rightfully so here's the fun bit anivia likely not intentionally played this fight correctly the enemy used everything on tristana so guess what
08:48
anivia is free to hard carry the fight since the enemy has used all key abilities on the tristana bait there's actually a very interesting dynamic that goes on in league of legends that you should be playing around in order to carry more often basically one player has to be sacrificed for the greater good and it should never be you let's take a look at the fight from two very different perspectives in this game senna is hard carrying and a fight is going to erupt around mid lane kong engages and basically at the end of it all his engage allowed senna and the
09:20
rest of his team to clean up the fight and win quite handily this was a good team fight by sena she played front to back and benefited from everyone using everything on wukong but were this a top lane guide we would be heavily critiquing this wukong you see you can't carry if you're dead this engage is technically good but it's overly reliant on his team following up appropriately sacrificing yourself for four random teammates is not a good idea in order to consistently carry games you should be the one alive and killing
09:50
everyone in a fight not your teammates so our advice to wukong would be to wait for kane to overextend into sena and then kill him after he's over committed to killing the adc funnily enough that's what happens much later into the game as they're pushing bottom sena feels overly confident and tries to zone the enemy team from coming in unfortunately rel had flash and hard punished her for mispositioning look at the result the enemy team wasted everything on senna so wukong came in and absolutely crushed this teamfight like we said
10:22
if this were a top lane guide kong would be getting praised right now so what we want to get at is that league of legends is a team game but should be played very selfishly a smurf and low elo shouldn't be playing technically correct but rather using their low elo teammates mistakes to their advantage just like the anivia in this clip the game got infinitely easier for her because her tristana made such a dumb error that's how you should think about your teammates it's not playing together with them as a cohesive unit but rather using them as fodder to further your own
10:53
goals trying to play as a friendly team member is not at all how a good player plays in the elo by the way you should know where these videos come from skill cap it's the best place to be if you actually want to improve at league of legends we have the best and the most lol guides on the internet that really do work the best part is that you don't have to take our word for it if you don't climb five divisions while using skill cap you can claim a refund so give it a shot and get the rank you've always wanted
11:24
for season 11. check us out after this and with that thought we're going to wrap up this guide as always we hope you enjoyed and thanks for watching
