Lesson description

When playing position 4 it is crucial to have a great understanding of what your hero is the best at and what you are supposed to do in the game. Top-level players like Cr1t- understand that even though you have an initial idea of how you want to play the game, it might change depending on how the game goes and what your team needs you to do. There are a lot of different roles you can have in the game. The most common ones are initiators, front liners, and team fighters, but all of them require space and timing. In this episode, Andreas explains how to get your resources to hit your power spikes. In general, you will either need gold or experience. To get it, you will most probably have to take over a lane at some point. If your mid laner naturally goes into the jungle, you should pay attention to that and make sure you cover his lane while he isn’t there without giving kills to the opposing mid laner. If you have a very active mid lane hero, then what you can do is play around them and make sure you enable them to get kills. This is another excellent way to secure resources for yourself. In general, you want to avoid having to farm neutral creeps unless it’s necessary. Take a look at your team and what your heroes can do collectively. If you are the only initiator in your team, then you need to prioritize your farm more than usual and make sure to let your team know you will be farming, so they let you have it.
