League of Legends is a popular MOBA game you can play on your gaming computer. Like all MOBA games, two opposing teams with five members must face each other in a strategic map, push the lanes to destroy the team’s nexus and win. Each player must choose a particular role in order to contribute properly in the game. And if you happen to be a beginner player, then here are a few basic tips in knowing the positions available in League of Legends.
Survive, that’s the primary goal for top lane players. To do this, I recommend beginner top laners to choose tanky champions to be able to defend the outer turret efficiently and survive throughout the early game. With top lane being the most isolated place on the map, it needs a smart player to be able to execute the right moves at the right time without endangering his life on sudden ganks and risking the outer turret.

Mid lane champions are mostly AP users or mages such as Ahri, Ryze, Katarina, Akali to name a few. When playing mid, one of the most important thing to remember is learning when and where to roam. The technique is to walk on lanes with sure ganks and kills. Leaving the mid lane can put the outer turret at risk, so make sure there’s a supporting champion who can defend it if ever the enemy team decided to push the lane.

Playing support doesn’t just mean protecting your AD carry from harm. It is a vital role that can make or break your team. From placing wards on the map to knowing how to disable clashes to protect your allies, being a support is one of the most important roles in the game. From laning to team fights, a good support must be able to find opportunities that his teammates can use to their advantage.

AD carry or attack damage carry is the one responsible for having the most consistent damage per second out of all the other roles. A good ADC must be able to farm CS so he can buy the items he needs. You also must be able to do the most damage in team fights possible. That’s the why the most important characteristic an ADC must have is the knowledge to build the right items.

Playing the role of the jungler is both an easy and hard task. During the first few minutes of the game, all you need to do is to kill neutral creeps in the jungle and level up. Once you have the decent items to start a clash, this is where the hard part begins and that is by successfully ganking the other lanes to secure kills and for your teammate to be able to push the lane.

With these tips, I hope it can help you play your role more effectively in the Summoner’s Rift.
Play on, summoner!
