In this episode, Jensen introduces the importance of being a great mid laner and talks about his game philosophy. It is essential to have a lot of game knowledge to be a very good mid laner because the role can have a significant impact across the map. For example, having a good understanding of how jungle pathing works can give you an advantage against other players because you will know when to expect them and how to avoid them. Your positioning matters a lot as well and knowing how other roles work will make you more aware of it. You need to be actively aware of everything that is going on so you can maximize your efficiency and performance. According to Jensen, the most significant difference between a pro player and an amateur one is the amount of game experience and understanding they have.
