Sup nerds. New season, same rat. ----------------------------- [b]CHANGELOG[/b] 5/4 - Gonna overhaul this when I'm not cramming for finals today and all week 11/26 - Jinx/Twitch updated, some champs touched on - too tired to write more. 11/25 - Updated item and kit descriptions, touched on mechanics, and started overhauling the objectives for each stage of the game. --------------------------- Anyways, try to enjoy what you can and check back regularly because I don't want any of you ass clowns feeding bot when you buy the new rat skin. I want you to be educated, calculating vermin with zero respect for pink wards. ANYWAYS~~~~~~~~~ I'm [b]Black Coffee 666[/b] on the NA servers, and I ended up in Plat 5 for season 4. Hopefully you remember from a game I fed really hard in and you carried me because I only play this champion when I'm stoned shitless. I suck at the game and playing at 7 fps doesn't help too much either, but I got a decent sense for game theory craftin'. I just thought I'd burn a few more hours of my life hopped up on speed to write up an extensive guide on the ins-and-outs of Twitch to become world famous and land a date with Miley Cyrus. [img=http://i.imgur.com/6HoHZ7K.jpg] pic related its me picking the mouse Twitch has been my favorite ADC to play since I learned the game playing him mid in season 2. I will show you amazing tips and tricks to play this sneaky bastard. However, I don't play him like a traditional ADC and he can be pretty tricky to play correctly. I don't really recommend him for soloq because he requires some extra team coordination to excel at what he does best so don't go looking at my match history and be all \"HEY BRO YOU BLOW DICK\". Sorry I got fucked up on some sort of something and tried to play league (90% of my games). I usually play him with a full team and that's where he is best situated. Anyways, be prepared to make decisions and huge plays. [img=http://i.imgur.com/WAsZxRw.png] Typical rat game [b]RAT STATS:[/b] (LEMME CHECK CUZ 4.20 CHANGED REGEN AND SOME SHIT) Health: 389 (+81 per level) Attack Damage: 46 (+3 per level) Health Regeneration: 5 (+0.6 per level) Attack Speed: 0.679 (+3.38% per level) Mana: 220 (+40 per level) Armor: 18 (+3 per level) Mana Regeneration: 6.5 (+0.45 per level) Magic Resistance: 30 (+0 per level) Range: 550 (Ranged) Movement Speed: 330 So here's some stuff you need to know before we start: HOW TO PLAY ADC: (WILL GO INTO MORE MECHANICAL DETAIL) -Right click -Position -Attack-move -CS trade -Take towers -Literally the only reason ADC is a thing is to kill towers -Don't piss off your support, they are the only thing that matters in bot lane -Ward when you can, take crab if you push up to tower. Your jg is probably too dumb to take it and it's probably the second best objective before 20 mins. -Stick with your team for the most part, you're squishy and they don't have stupid damage. Teamwork -KILL DRAGON KILL DRAGON KILL DRAGON -Baron pretty important too I guess -Maybe teamfight? I like to push lanes like doublelift and get my dick sucked by ukranian sluts Meet the [s]mongoloids[/s] ADCs: These are the guys you're going to up against in 5.3. I will go into more detail later on. [img=champ/ashe.png] - [img=champ/caitlyn.png] - [img=champ/corki.png] - [img=champ/draven.png] - [img=champ/ezreal.png] - [img=champ/graves.png] - [img=champ/jinx.png] - [img=champ/kalista.png] - [img=champ/kogmaw.png] - [img=champ/lucian.png] - [img=champ/missfortune.png] - [img=champ/sivir.png] - [img=champ/tristana.png] - [img=champ/varus.png] - [img=champ/vayne.png]

[img=champ/alistar.png] - if he can pull his combo off hes pretty decent for you. if hes on the other side, don't try to kill him post-6; he can also knock you up during ult which is obnoxious [img=champ/annie.png] - long range, reliable stuns are fucking great [img=champ/bard.png] - god awful in soloqueue. if your buddy is really good at bard, let him play bard in your 5s jesus christ hes got the utility [img=champ/blitzcrank.png] - [img=champ/brand.png] - [img=champ/braum.png] - [img=champ/janna.png] - i hate janna because janna will more than likely ult amumu onto you, immediately cancel her channel, and then shit talk you for getting snared by amumu and dying [img=champ/karma.png] - [img=champ/leona.png] - [img=champ/lulu.png] - [img=champ/morgana.png] - [img=champ/nami.png] - [img=champ/nautilus.png] - [img=champ/sona.png] - [img=champ/soraka.png] - [img=champ/taric.png] - [img=champ/thresh.png] - [img=champ/zilean.png] - [img=champ/zyra.png] - If the other guy has cc, play smart and wait for them to blow it before going in. if the other guy just pokes, dodge it. if the other guy is squishy, go all in to counter act their lane sustain. you want heavy hitters or guys like karma with good utility. soraka isnt your best option guys who work good -> nautilus, braum, thresh, blitz, leona. these guys are good because they can cc the living shit out of the other miserable bastard, and pull stupid fucking wukongs off you all the other squishy guys are gonna be building ap and forgetting that they need to buy wards. only tank support players know what the fuck is going on

**WIP** CC lockdown and stuff that preferably groups them up (ORI/DIANA??). You basically want a team that will let you get your ult off on as many guys as possible for the longest amount of time. Aggressive supports are best for twitch because he wants lane dominance which will roll over to mid game superiority, which in turn translates to press buttons to win late game.

**WIP** [b][big]RIGHT CLICK[/big][/b] [b]Stealth-Backing:[/b] Recall while stealthed. Press B to recall immediately after pressing Q to stealth. This lets your stealth become active while channeling the recall without breaking it. Provided we took [img=masteries/4311.png], our total recall time is 7 seconds. [img=skills/twitch/q.png] takes 1.5 seconds to active the stealth if you haven't recently taken damage, and the stealth will last 4/5/6/7/8 seconds based on level. Aside from the first 1.5 second window, this allows us to back safely stealthed at level 3 Q. At level 4 Q, you can wait the 1.5/6 seconds into the channel (not after you stealth though) before you begin to recall. This lets you completely channel the recall stealthed, which is really funny when getting caught out. (Video coming soonish) [b]Trading:[/b] Always attack back onto the enemy adc if possible, or the support if that's the only option. You will always do more damage to the adc and weakening him will give you more dominance in lane than damaging the support. Make sure to land your [img=skills/twitch/w.png] on both champions and use [img=skills/twitch/e.png] when the other guy has at least 3 stacks on him. Of course the more stacks on both targets, the more damage you will deal, so if the adc backs off, make sure you attack the support a few times to get some stacks on him. [b]Taking Towers:[/b] 1) Push wave to tower 2) Auto attack the tower once 3) [img=skills/twitch/q.png]+[img=items/youmuus-ghostblade.png]+[img=items/elixer-of-ruin.png] and keep autoing, this will deal huge DPS 4) Run away after you take it, they will probably arrive to kill you Before you pop your actives, make sure the enemy team is on the other side of the map or just unable to get to you before you kill the turret. This is important because if they catch you without your Q and YGB, you will probably be unable to escape or kill them outright. If the tower is low enough to take with a few auto attacks, and you don't have enough health to tank it for that amount of time, you can always use your [img=skills/twitch/r.png]. This lets you outrange the tower and attack it for free, but for 7 seconds and at the cost of your ult being on cooldown. At full core build, you can probably take towers with just that 7 second window and the rest of your steroids. [b]Stealth Mindgames:[/b] Change direction when you hit stealth, you will probably dodge a skill shot because they will assume you are running to tower. Try running to their jungle - it might not be warded and you could recall there. OR you could just run to tower because at higher levels they will expect you to run into some stupid spot.

farm up until you get big fucker sword. keep applying poison stacks and expunge whenever you feel like you got enough stacks on the guys. when their dumb ass adc or targans nerd come out to last hit, last hit them during their auto attack because unfortunately they cannot attack both you and the minion at the same damn time. poison will draw minion aggro, make sure your support sweeps the brush and hide in there when they try to attack you. at early levels they will grind you down harder than i grind my teeth snorting Adderall WIP everything below this is trash i need to review it and c/p before i delete it Your early game really depends on the enemy laners. You will either be super aggressive, or super passive. In the aggressive lane, you will constantly be poking your opponent with auto attacks when they go to last hit a minion, keeping the [img=skills/twitch/p.png] stacks going as long as possible for the bonus true damage. At level one, using [img=skills/twitch/e.png] when they have 3 or more stacks of [img=skills/twitch/p.png] will give you early lane dominance. However, do not let the enemy minions aggro and attack you too much. Not only will this push the lane a bit, it will also cause you to lose trades. Don't risk your neck for the extra stack, it's usually not worth it. When you hit level 2, put a point in [img=skills/twitch/w.png] and immediately go in before they level their second skill. Although your [img=skills/twitch/e.png] does not do as much damage as it used to early on, just being able to zone the other ADC from farm is worth enough if you don't get the kill. Once you have them zoned and you have enough mana, you can use [img=skills/twitch/w.png] simply as a zoning tool. The idea here is to put the stacks and slow on them when they even THINK about farming, so they will be unlikely to move in to get the last hit because they know they will tank at least 2 auto attacks and the [img=skills/twitch/e.png]. Always use [img=skills/twitch/q.png] to return to lane because the active is basically free [img=items/boots-of-speed.png]. You can use this skill to position behind the enemy ADC to get easy kills if they are much lower than you. This takes some know how and communication to pull off, so make sure your [img=champ/leona.png] jumps in when you break stealth to kill at least one of the panicking opponents. Don't do this if you are even with the other guy and the enemy [img=champ/leona.png] has her [img=skills/leona/q.png] or [img=skills/leona/r.png] off cooldown, you will die.

this is the part of the game when you run around the map like a chicken with its head cut off and fuck the enemy jungler and midlaner up really good while lux and morgana try to stuff your huge rat cock down their throats. WIP 12:00-30:00 Idiots will tell you it starts at 20:00 when Baron spawns, but you should be moving around that map as soon as you buy your boots. Items important here: [img=items/blade-of-the-ruined-king.png][img=items/youmuus-ghostblade.png][img=items/berserkers-greaves.png][img=items/vision-ward.png][img=items/mana-potion.png][img=items/elixer-of-ruin.png] Mid game is where this Twitch build really starts to shine. At this point you should at least have your [img=items/blade-of-the-ruined-king.png] (if you have [img=items/youmuus-ghostblade.png], that is even better). You will use these active effects and your amazing kit to assassinate the enemy ADC when he goes to face check river bushes or to melt the enemy jungler during the dragon fight so he can't [img=summoners/smite.png]. Always keep your support close and your lane pushed. Stay in the back to avoid skillshots and gap closers, because if you die you can't kill anything. The whole point of mid game is to take objectives, so don't let you or your team die chasing the 200 HP [img=champ/lulu.png] into the bush that obvious has [img=champ/vi.png] and [img=champ/yasuo.png] waiting inside. Just kill creeps and auto attack the tower as much as you can. During my research, I've found that while the active from [img=items/youmuus-ghostblade.png] is strong during team fights, it is also amazing at melting towers with your other attack speed steroid. After you pick up your [img=items/infinity-edge.png], you should be able to 100% towers just after the steroids wear off. Make sure you keep the lanes pushed at this point in the game and onward so you can make short work on towers rotating around the map. [b]DRAGON - VERY IMPORTANT TAKE IT WHENEVER YOU CAN[/b] Preseason 5 buffed dragon to give a stacking buff with huge benefits for your team. Take this whenever it is up and NEVER let the other team get it. The stacks are: 1) +8% attack damage and ability power 2) +15% damage to minions and monsters 3) +5% movement speed 4) +15% damage to towers and buildings 5) Doubles all previous bonuses and your attacks burn for 150 true damage over 5 seconds. This stack only lasts 180 seconds. So basically, if you secure the first dragon, your team gets a good chunk of free damage. This lets you own the ~10:00-16:00 time, and be able to dunk the other team when they try to contest the second dragon. The next 3 stacks buff your ability to push and take buildings (what you were put in the game to do), so grabbing these will turn the pressure advantage in your favor. Taking the second buff will let you clear jungle and waves hilariously fast, so take advantage of this before it is nerfed. After that stack, you should tell your team to pressure mid while you solo the 3rd dragon, because you will kill it in about 8 auto attacks. This is most important objective in the mid game, I cannot stress that enough. Video is outdated, but it shows the proper way to take the first dragon and set the tone for the rest of the game: [vid=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GhOJTA5eX40] After I returned to lane with my [img=items/blade-of-the-ruined-king.png], I noticed that [img=champ/shaco.png] was coming for a gank. Instead of probably eating a [img=skills/morgana/r.png], I ping to take the Dragon and shove the lane instead. I warded the river to make sure I would see [img=champ/rengar.png] coming, because he is a huge threat at all stages of the game. Seeing that it is a free dragon due to their bot lane not following, I pop [img=skills/twitch/q.png] for the attack speed steroid to QUICKLY secure the objective. I save my [img=skills/twitch/e.png] because I see that their bot is pushing the lane away from tower, and my team capitalizes on it. I use the move speed and stealth from [img=skills/twitch/q.png] to get on top of [img=champ/kogmaw.png], who had no escape at the time. I open with [img=items/blade-of-the-ruined-king.png]+[img=skills/twitch/w.png] and use [img=skills/twitch/e.png] when he had 6 stacks of [img=skills/twitch/p.png]. My team re-positions to avoid tanking more turret shots, [img=skills/kogmaw/p.png]+[img=skills/morgana/r.png], and a very possible [img=champ/rengar.png] combo. We go to push the lane to turret while I poke [img=champ/morgana.png] down, and [img=champ/rengar.png] jumps on my team. I turn to use [img=skills/twitch/r.png] to kill both enemies with the piercing damage and extended range, saving [img=champ/shaco.png]. This is what I was referring to when saying you need to use your head before popping [img=skills/twitch/r.png]. If I had used it when assassinating [img=champ/kogmaw.png], [img=champ/shaco.png] may have died and I would have not received a double kill. I then noticed my [img=skills/twitch/q.png] was off cool down and [img=champ/fizz.png] had returned to base, so I used the attack speed steroid to once again take the objective quickly to secure an even larger gold lead on the enemy team while ending my personal laning phase. [b]TOWERS - PUNISH PEOPLE FOR NOT DEFENDING THEM AND GET PAID FOR IT[/b] While running around like a chicken with its head cut off, you need to constantly be clearing waves and telling your team to push. Every bit of damage on towers is worth it. Constantly chip away at towers and run away when they try to stop you. Basic guerrilla warfare here (you even get to vanish into the surroundings, just like a good Vietkong). When the enemy team is drawn top for a fight, dead, or just can't respond, you need to take that bottom tower down (or the second tier if you are worth your salt). Use your turret killing combo I've gone over like 40 times and run away. If you keep rotating right, you should be able to topple a few of these guys for free. The goal is to collectively wipe out like 5 of them by 30 minutes, and that's 1250g in your pocket if you personally helped. [b]RED/BLUE BUFF - DON'T LET THE OTHER TEAM TAKE THEM[/b] They're called buffs for a reason, as long as your team is holding onto them, the other team can't use them. Make sure you help ward them whenever you can (taking Scuttlecrab helps out, so always kill that clown) and try to zone off anyone attempting to take one. If your midlaner is dead and you are the only one who can deny the blue buff to the enemy team when wandering their jungle or defending your own, TAKE IT. Worst case scenario you never run out of mana and you can pop more [img=skills/twitch/e.png]. You personally want to start taking red buff whenever you start actually team fighting. If 1v1 scenario you don't really need to slow because you have your [img=skills/twitch/w.png], but during the 5v5 fights you can effectively put the red buff slow on the whole enemy team, something your [img=champ/udyr.png] can't do without looking like a moron. Any time before this, it might be better if your jungler or top bruiser is able to stick to guys, so don't deny them that power spike (especially if you're just splitting). [b]ELIXIR OF RUIN BEST ITEM NA[/b] Buy it as often as possible within reason. Use it when you get that tower taking opportunity. It's a great fucking consumable and really helps win the map more than anything else. The small health bonus is decent for close calls and taking jungle camps before you grab the second dragon.

WIP Late game is when you have most or all of your build. You are more or less a one-trick pony that wins games at this point, so play smart and don't get caught. Stay in the back during team fights and do not waste your [img=skills/twitch/q.png] for no reason, because even with the nerfs it is still the only thing that will save your ass. Like mid game, the objective of late game is to take towers and eventually the enemy nexus. Team fights are fun and what you're built for, but don't be the one initiating. The only initiating you should do is picking off the enemy [img=champ/lucian.png] or [img=champ/ziggs.png] with your active effects, and after that immediately get out because they will come after you and your [img=skills/twitch/q.png] is on cooldown. Remember that when you are taking their base, it is usually better to go for the open inhibitor than trying to siege the tower for another lane. If your team moves up and takes an inhibitor, the enemy team will sit under nexus turrets, which lets you take another lane's tower and ultimately inhibitor. When attacking base, make sure you press tab often and know when the dead members of the enemy team are going to spawn. Not doing this is the easiest way to throw a lead because [img=items/enchantment-homeguard.png] is amazing.

WIP Sit in the back and wait for the enemy team to blow their gap closers. Make sure you are positioned to be far away enough to do maximum damage with [img=skills/twitch/r.png], while being safely out of range from [img=skills/katarina/e.png]. Break your stealth and pop all your active effects to devastate the enemy team. Wait until at least 3 of them have the full stacks of [img=skills/twitch/p.png] before using [img=skills/twitch/e.png]. It does a lot of damage at this point, so don't pop it early. Don't wait too long to use it, or your [img=champ/rengar.png] might get killed by the [img=champ/yasuo.png] sitting on 6 stacks. Don't rely on your defense item to save you, so always position smart. I can't emphasize that more. There has been so many times that I was far enough behind my team that I didn't lose my [img=items/banshees-veil.png] passive to the [img=skills/amumu/r.png], and still had it for when [img=champ/leblanc.png] tried to nuke me with her [img=skills/leblanc/w.png][img=skills/leblanc/r.png].

Twitch isn't exactly a flavor of the month right now because of better solo queue choices at the moment, but I still feel he's always a great pick in the bot lane. If you follow this guide, I'm sure you will improve your Twitch game or counter-play. Most of my strategies are a little off the beaten path as far as the meta goes, but I feel its always a good idea to find methods to suit your madness, rather than following what everyone else does. Kind of counterproductive advice, but basically do what works best for you. I know a lot of what I said was redundant, but I wanna get it drilled in your head. If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions feel free to comment. Also feel free to use me as a reference for your new League account or whatever because [i]I would kill for the Medieval Twitch skin[/i]. Thanks for reading guys and good luck! Credits: League of Legends Wiki - I might have copy/pasted some effect descriptions [img=http://i.imgur.com/OH5OZoh.jpg] Keep trying your hand at Twitch and sooner or later you will have players in the top 600 NA doing this on their stream. Song choice not appropriate. (SORRY FOR PICKING ON YOU, NOTHING PERSONAL)
