MEMORY!!! Hey bud. I really like your Occ. You even came up in a talk I was having with I_htya’s old account about good newer people. You are improving at rapid rate. I would say stick with the Occ a little bit longer. I don’t have a whole lot of advice to give on the forum but I would say if you really want to improve 1v1 is where you learn the most. You might get stomped a little but it lets you focus on your skills without having to worry about everything else around you. It also gives you more time to chat. Usually the people that play the 1v1’s are more experienced and willing to help. Just let them know you want to learn.
Advice for Occ and some general advice--
Make sure you are killing grunts on EVERY creep wave. Try your hardest not to let them die to the tower and don’t ever walk away from them even if someone is yelling MID MID kill’um first then go capture mid.
If you are sharing a lane with someone let the creeps get closer in before you chain so you can share exp with your partner but you still get the money for the kill (I think that’s how it works. Still not sure exactly how the money works and I don’t feel like reading it again but that’s what I do haha.)
If you are in a solo lane trading off capturing exp flag and mana flag try to find the right rhythm where you can chain YOUR side of the creep wave while you are capturing mid. Just move a little forward and chain them then continue capturing mid. What this does is now when you go back to capture mana flag and your opponent trades to capture mid he will miss the entire creep wave because the grunts don’t have to fight each other at the flag they will just run straight to tower and die. Now if he stays there to kill the grunts and hold the flag he has to fight you and a creep wave so you can still overpower him. At the very least he can still sit by tower and get exp from them but you are still denying him money if he’s not able to attack the wave directly.
When a creep wave is running in by a side tower always try to hit the tower with your chain first and the rest will kill the creep wave. Little stuff like this adds up. I used to just hope the tower would get hit somewhere in there but now I focus that tower first as much as possible with chain (learned that in a 1v1 thanks buddy)
My primary goal early(maybe even the whole game) is to level up. If a kill comes it comes. I even hate having to teleport to save someone because that means I’m going to miss at least 2 creep waves. Just always keep it on your mind.
Learn your Double butt jump with blast off. It hits on the way up and on the way down. It’s very powerful and most people just ignore it or can’t help it because they have to come in and melee you. Learn when to use it and when to save it for escape. And also experiment with the range on it. You don’t have to be right on top of someone and jump straight up and down for it to double hit. You can actually jump a little forward or little back if you need to. I’m still playing with that a little not exactly sure about the range. It shows a double cast area ring around you when you are using it. Just play with it.
Fun stuff: Try to jump over boulder rolls. Well I think I’ve tried it a bunch and it may not be possible but what I did find out is that you can usually avoid some stuns by jumping slightly diagonally towards the boulder. It’s not really jumping over but jumping out of the way and if close enough you can still double hit rooks big ass.
Well that’s about for here. Forget our little competition. Hit me up in game sometime. We can play a game then watch the replay together and chat about it or somethin.
