How to learn League of Legends like a Pro
How to learn League of Legends like a pro? Hard work and training. No video game comes natural, and being a League of Legends pro is no different. Or did you really think we humans were intended to be pro video gamers?
We didn’t evolve into pro gamers
But really. Do take a step back from the games you play and think about the point I just made. We humans evolved from apelikes to what we are now. Simplify it and you’ll see that we do things that are either learned or come through instinct. But we didn’t evolve into League of Legends pro-gamers and chances are pretty slim that we ever will. Instinct left us no WASD+mouse über micro or champion strategies. But what we can do is learn the League – yes, we can learn ourselves to become better League of Legends players. In the upcoming posts we will break down being good at League of Legends – and maybe games in general, though different games ask for different skillsets – by looking at 3 core skills. Two of them are Reflexes and Knowledge, the other one will be revealed later.
Skillful plays don’t come natural, they take hard work to get right.
