[center][b]Hello. My IGN is SunDipFunny. I'm a Plat 4 player who mainly plays Marksman. Shoutout to DragonKing454[/b][/center] Twitch is a high damage assassin which uses AD damage, but scales somewhat off of AP. This guide will be of AD Carry Twitch which I find extremely strong in Season 4. [b]Why do you consider him an Assassin?[/b] His Q is a stealth, speed buff which lets him get behind an enemy and totally catch them off guard. With his W plus Blade of the Ruined King he can melt (instantly kill) an enemy with not as much armor or is very squishy. [b]Why pick Twitch?[/b] Picking Twitch. He's definitely underplayed in the current meta, but I find him extremely frustrating to play against and has insanely high damage level 1. Twitch wins almost every trade due to his poison passive. In teamfights Twitch is almost untargetable due to his ultimate which gives increased range and damage. [b]Recent Changes on the Rift directly related to Twitch (4.10 Patch Notes Link:[/b] Base damage lowered from 52 => 49 Time to stealth without taking damage now 1.25 seconds ⇒ 1.5 seconds Passive damage lowered to 2/4/6/8 (at levels 1/6/11/16) ⇒ 1/2/3/4/5/6 (at levels 1/4/7/10/13/16) [b]Some Terminology/Other things all Good ADCs should know[/b] BoTRK: Blade of The Ruined King IE: Infinity Edge DPS: Damage Per Second CD of Flash: 5 minutes CD of Barrier: 3 minutes 30 seconds AD: Attack damage MR: Magic Resist: Regen: Regeneration AoE: Area of Effect

At the beginning of the game go leash your jungler. On[i] Blue side[/i] if your Jungler starts [b]Red Buff[/b] go leash for him/her. If he/she starts [b]Blue Buff[/b] you don't have to leash for him/her but do[b] defend[/b] the [b]Red Buff[/b]. On [i]Purple Side[/i] if your jungler starts [b]Blue Buff[/b] then go leash for him/her. If your jungler starts [b]Red Buff[/b] then defend[b] Blue Buff.[/b] [b]How to Leash Properly:[/b] When I play any AD Carry I normally do 3-4 autos then go to lane. 3-4 autos should let you head back to lane at around [b]2:00.[/b] On [i]Blue Side[/i] if you leash red you will lose around 1 CS if you leave at [b]2:00.[/b] On[i] Purple Side[/i] you will lose 0 CS if you leave at[b] 2:00.[/b] [b]Entering lane:[/b] Upon entering lane try to determine if the lane will be easy, even, or difficult. Easy lanes normally have more passive supports such as [img=champ/soraka.png] for one example. Even lanes you normally have an aggressive support against you such as [img=champ/leona.png][img=champ/annie.png], but you have an aggressive support as well. Difficult lanes are when you have a very passive support, while they have a very aggressive support such as [img=champ/taric.png]. [b]Pushing the Wave:[/b] Once you enter lane and determine the matchup, push the wave as hard as you can without taking too much poke and missing any CS. [b]Why should I push?[/b] Pushing the lane will get you level 2 faster than the enemy lane. Level 2 is HUGE in bot lane. You gain an additional spell, and more damage. If you hit level 2 first you can be very aggressive, but remember to have wards placed in the Tri-Brush and River. [b]When and How to be aggressive?[/b] Being aggressive on Twitch is a very easy thing. A good way to conserve mana and get decent poke, whenever the Enemy AD Carry goes in for a last hit, try to get one auto attack on him, but do not miss any CS. Only go for a poke if you won't take any harass from the support or enemy AD Carry. Don't spam [img=skills/twitch/e.png] in lane because its very mana costly. Only use [img=skills/twitch/e.png] when you have 4 or more stacks. [b]Controlling the Wave:[/b] A very handy tool for any ADC to have. Controlling the wave is having the wave in a position suitable to you and your support needs, and keeping you safe from ganks from the Jungle or River. You either want the wave pushed slightly towards their tower but not in turret range, or slightly pushed to your tower with the minions not being in your tower range. This helps you in a lot of ways. You will see ganks faster, and react to them better, and the opposing lane cannot be as aggressive due to no vision behind farther down the lane. [b]Farming:[/b] The bane of all Bronze, Silver, and occasionally Gold Level Players. Farming is the act of last hitting a minion for gold. Last hitting is the most important tool as an ADC. Farming gives you gold, and if your support starts [img=items/ancient-coin.png] you will be giving him/her more gold which can supply more wards and auras. Under tower, melee minions are 2 tower hits then one Auto Attack (AA). Caster minions are 1 tower hit then one Auto Attack (AA). The only way to get better at last hitting is practice. Lots and lots of practice. Don't try to AD Carry if you can't efficiently last hit.

Mid game is where you are insanely strong if you already have [img=items/blade-of-the-ruined-king.png]. If you see an unsuspecting target that is not a tanky champion and think you can kill him/her easily do [img=skills/twitch/q.png][img=skills/twitch/w.png][img=items/blade-of-the-ruined-king.png] then autos and once you get six stacks use [img=skills/twitch/e.png]. Remember to use ultimate in teamfights. And remember to activate [img=items/blade-of-the-ruined-king.png] if your getting dived or attacked. [b]Keys to Mid-Game:[/b] [i]Don't get caught and group up with your team[/i] [i]Make sure you try to keep farming as much as possible[/i] [i]Work together[/i] As an ADC you should always know how to position yourself and trade properly [i]I always make sure that I maintain a safe decent between myself and the enemy support. Why? Because in bottom lane the support will set up most of the kills and since Twitch is an amazing early game trader most ADCs will not try to 1v1 you besides Draven.[/i] [i]Make sure you get 4 or more stacks on your [img=skills/twitch/p.png] before using your [img=skills/twitch/e.png][/i]

Late game you should almost have full build or already have it. You do insane amounts of damage and the game is almost coming to a close. Make sure you don't get picked or die. Kiting and positioning are key. Practice your kiting and positioning. Make sure to use your [img=skills/twitch/r.png] during the fight. [b]Keys to Late Game[/b] [i]Don't die[/i] [i]Stay grouped up[/i] You want to focus on your positioning this late in the game because you literally cannot die because of the risk of losing. Stay as far back as possible but be able to put down decent damage on the enemy team. During teamfights always focus the person closest to you, because its your only job to do damage at this point in the game. Don't run past them thinking they aren't a carry or priority target or they'll make you pay and kill you.

As the AD Carry of your team your only job is to deal Damage to the enemies. You aren't an assassin, and kills are not the priority here. You're only job is to deal damage to the enemies. The best way to do this in teamfights is to ult and auto attack the closest enemy possible. Don't run past other enemies to get to the enemy carries because that is setting yourself up to death because the bruiser meta is so strong currently. [b]How to properly position yourself?[/b] [i]Stay in the back[/i] [i]Focus the person in front of you[/i] [i]R to WIN with Twitch[/i] [i]Make sure you use your W and BoTRK[/i]

Twitch is a very high risk/high reward champion at times. Your [img=skills/twitch/q.png] is very strong if you can use it wisely. Here's what you do to get a easy kill on the enemies carry. This only works if you have [img=items/bilgewater-cutlass.png] or [img=items/blade-of-the-ruined-king.png] Start with [img=skills/twitch/q.png] out of the enemies vision. Sneak up behind or near the enemy while still in stealth. Once close enough to the enemy come out of stealth mode with your [img=skills/twitch/w.png] then use [img=items/blade-of-the-ruined-king.png] or [img=items/bilgewater-cutlass.png] and attack. At 6 stacks use your [img=skills/twitch/e.png]. If you have your [img=skills/twitch/r.png] you can even use it if if they get away with a sliver of HP. This tactic has gotten me tons of kill and infuriated the enemy team.

This concludes my basic Twitch guide. I will continuously upgrade this guide whenever I feel like. Good luck to all the Twitch players and don't feed and shame me.
