League of Legends Using Team Composition to Win Clash Tournaments By: RandomoniumLoL

With Clash being released next weekend I figure that now would be a good time to share what I?ve learned about team compositions so you can get all that sweet, sweet Clash loot.

This is the method I used to win the Hextech cup multiple times during the Clash global beta:

  1. All players on the team rate all champions
  2. Determine which champions can be flex picks
  3. Create champion pools for each team composition type
  4. Pick two compositions that are not adjacent to each other
  5. Find picks that can fit into either comp that you also feel comfortable blind picking
  6. In general, delay your support pick as late as possible
  7. When possible, draft at least two winning matchups

I go over all of these steps in a ton more detail in my??Clash Guide??video but here?s the cliff notes for each step.

Rate all champions:

  • Recommend ratings 1 to 10
  • Be honest
  • Don?t put all champions 10
  • Don?t put all champions 1
  • Limit champions at each rating to 15-20
  • Champions you would be willing to blind pick should be highly rated
  • See my??Champions Rating Template??tool for a example template you can use

Determine what champions can be flex picks:

  • Find champions that two or more players rate highly
  • Determine if that champion can be flexed in those two roles
  • Don?t be turned off by off meta picks
  • Flexing a champion to an off meta role can completely surprise enemy teams
  • If you can play that champion effectively in an off meta role it makes that champion very threatening to enemy teams
  • Flex picks can be picked early in draft and allow you to get more counter matchups and force bad picks from your opponents

Create champion pools for each team composition type:

  • Be very broad in what champions you include in each champion pool
  • Prioritize flex picks
  • Prioritize champions you feel comfortable with more than the ?perfect? champion for that comp
  • Discuss each composition with your team
  • Rate how strong your team is with each team composition
  • If possible, play a few games with each composition to determine how natural they feel
  • You will often be limited by the player with the smallest champion pool
  • Team compositions are defined in my??Team Compositions Guide??video

Pick two compositions that are not adjacent to each other:

  • Results in your team:
    • Being strong against four compositions
    • Being even against one composition
  • If you pick two compositions that are adjacent it results in your team:
    • Being strong against three compositions
    • Being even against one composition
    • Being weak against one composition
  • If you only pick one composition it results in your team:
    • Being strong against two compositions
    • Being even against one composition
    • Being weak against two compositions
  • All team composition matchups are discussed in my??Team Composition Matchups??video

Find picks that can fit into either comp that you also feel comfortable blind picking:

  • Jungle and bot are usually good roles to blind pick
  • Proper jungle pathing, warding and lane priority can negate bad jungle matchups
  • The support pick can negate bad bot lane matchups
  • Flex picks are very powerful for this
  • If you intend to use a flex pick, don?t pick the other role the champion can be flexed to
  • More information on which champions are good in which team comps can be found in my??Champion Classes, Videos & Team Comps??tool

In general, delay your support pick as late as possible:

  • Support can wildly swing a composition one way or another
  • Support position has the most versatility
  • Leona as opposed to Janna
  • Taric as opposed to Vel?Koz
  • Plenty of off meta picks that can be played support in coordinated play
  • Zac, Swain, Shaco, Ashe, Miss Fortune, Teemo, etc.
  • If your support has a very limited champion pool the strength of delaying the support pick diminishes

When possible, draft at least two winning matchups:

  • Matchups meaning top, jungle, mid and bot (support included with bot)
  • Team compositions don?t matter in the early game
  • Easiest way to lose when you have a team composition advantage is to get destroyed in laning phase
  • You need to have winning, or at least even, matchups to ensure you can enter the mid game even or with a minimal deficit
  • If you have one or no winning matchups play extremely passive and avoid fighting early at all costs
  • If you don?t have a team composition advantage you should draft strongly for early game, fight as often as possible and focus on snowballing a lead

Here?s all the videos and tools I?ve released to help people identify what champions they want to play and learn how to build team compositions.
