Hello and welcome everybody to the very first episode of Treeline Tutorials. In this series I will go over all the basic things you should know before you queue up for your first ranked game. In this video, we will only look at the map layout and some different playstyles. Before we get into this however, I would like to advice you to take a look at the description and see if any information given in the video has changed. In the description, you will also find links to the sources that I’ve used. If you would like some more in-depth information about subjects from the video I recommend you visit these websites.
Now, with all that out of the way, let’s get right into the tutorial As you all maybe know, the Twisted Treeline is the second classic League of Legends map And although it looks a lot different from Summoners Rift, There are still a lot of similarities Both teams have a Nexus, Nexus turret And two lanes. Each lane than has its own outer, and inner-turret Inhibitor, and inhibitor turret The table on screen, shows all the base stats of the four different turrets on the map. There are two things that I would like to point out: First of all, the base statistics of the outer turrets are very, very weak. Especially when you consider that the fortification passive that we see on the turrets on Summoners Rift Does not apply on the turrets of the twisted treeline. Getting an early 300-gold lead and significant map pressure, is therefor not a hard thing to acquire. Secondly, the nexus turret has a whopping attack speed. Meaning that the penetrating bullets passive will stack up very quickly resulting in very high DPS. That’s why tower diving under this turret usually doesn’t end very well.
The next subject on our list is the jungle. The jungle consists of three neutral camps Spawning at minutes into the game. After clearing them the camps take 75 seconds (minutes) to respawn. Minutes into the game a ‘ghost relic’ spawns in between the two jungles This relic restores a significant amount of HP and mana. The relic respawns minutes after it has been taken. At the same time that the relic spawns The altars, located in the middle of the jungle, unlock. Capturing an altar takes 9 seconds so if you want to recall whilst capturing it you need to keep in mind that first, you have to wait 1 second before casting your recall. Capturing an altar grants every member of your team 80 gold. additionally, Controlling an altar grants your team bonus mana regeneration and +10% movement speed. If you also managed to capture the other altar you are granted a buff that restores 1% of you max. HP upon killing a minion or monster Before getting into playstyles there is one more element on the map that I would like to discuss Vilemaw Vilemaw is often referred to as the Baron Nashor of the Twisted Treeline And for good reason. Killing vilemaw grans all living players on your team a buff called crest of crushing wrath.
This buff makes it possible to move through units. Additionally, Allied minions terrorize nearby enemy minions and their statistics are greatly increased. Keep in mind that unlike the Baron Nashor buff This buff doesn’t actually increase champion statistics. Killing Vilemaw usually allows your team to kill an inhibitor or finish the game. But keep in mind, just like Baron Nashor Vilemaw can often lead you to eventually lose a winning game. To minimize the damage taken from Vilemaw while taking it, make sure your team is positioned well One person of your team, usually the tank, should stand as close as possible to Vilemaw either or the very right or very left side. This way most of the AOE damage is fired in his direction.
Which means that the rest of the team won’t take any unnecessary damage. You should naw have a broad idea of the layout of the twisted treeline and the importance of its components. Now with that in mind let’s move on to the playstyles that you might encounter. The most standard playstyle that you might encounter on the Twisted Treeline is called the ‘Jungle Meta’. Your typical team-comp consists of an AD toplaner, a tank jungler and an AP-mage on botlane. This is the most logical and standard playstyle since its pretty similar to the one that’s maintained on Summoners Rift. In the description I’ve linked a tier list that shows the champions that are currently performing best for a specific position. The playstyle that you are most likely to find in higher elo is called the support meta. As the name suggests, This composition consists of a support, a carry and an AP-botlaner The idea behind this playstyle is to channel as much as possible resources into the carry So he can dominate the enemy team. This can be realised by letting the carry take both toplane and jungle cs and experience.
To gain the most out of the jungle camps the carry always needs to take smite and build the first part of the jungle item. The support is there to help the carry farm and provide him with shields and cc during teamfights I would say that this playstyle is harder to properly execute but is stronger overall. We have now covered all the basic subjects that you should be aware of before committing to the Twisted Treeline. If you guys liked this tutorial, and would like me to go into further detail on specific subjects please let me know. This is for me the first time of doing a tutorial of this kind. If you have any tips or feedback, please leave it in the comments below. And for the people that are new to my channel and would like to learn more about the Twisted Treeline, I try to regularly upload replays of high elo gameplay. So if that’s something that you’re interested in, feel free to subscribe to the channel. Other than that I would like to thank you guys for watching and best of luck in the new season!.
