League of Legends

How to boost your Elo Rank

Every second in game, when you do not farm gold or experience, you decrease your winning chances.

Lets inspect mechanic of this game, and understand how continuously farm of exp and gold can increase your chances of victory. We will analyze all that we know about League of Legends mechanics, and what gives a great advantage to your team and brings victory later.

League of Legends ELO

For the most League – is a game, in which you can easily play, but in fact you need a really hard work, day by day, to rise your Elo rank. Perhaps, you already read some guides in the internet, follow professional meta in the game, but for this article i decided to start from very beginning.

Lets learn inner mechanic of this game, and this will help up to increase our winrate in every match. And even more, when you truly understand logic of League of Legends and get a true competition spirit, you can use it in any other game. So let’s over with beginning, and go straight to the numbers.

Minions, or how i started to love gold.

Let’s begin with a simple fact: It is possible to destroy an enemy’s Nexus without killing any champion.

LoL Minion

And this is the main reason why most of the players play in “safe mode“. Most of the Pro-Gamers know one simple fact. The best place in the game – near the minions, and optimal task – to earn money from these minions. Exceptions are only additional tasks, as Baron or Elemental Dragon. So what logic hidden behind all of this?

This table will help to understand the reward, that you can earn for the laning stage, of just for one lashit (hit when you kill minion / champion and you receive gold from it) up to 20 minute of the game. Typical match in League of Legends at 20 minutes point goes from Early game to the stage of the Mid game. And accomplishment of additional tasks (like baron and elemental dragon) goes in the front plan.

Researches show that at lining stage you should priority melee minions instead of casters, because this way you will get more gold. Despite the fact that these 2 kinds of minions are upgraded with the same speed, melee minions will bring you 22 gold, while caster – 18 gold. Siege minions will give even more gold – 27, and more – gold for each siege minion upgraded with each cycle – 1 gold per cycle.

League of Legends Minions

Player with ideal CS (creep score – number of killed minions) earn almost 5000 gold by 20 minute. And it is a really big bag of money, for example you can buy a Trinity Force and some mid-game artifact. And the exp you will earn at this way will be enough to achive 15 level (14000 of exp point for solo line). Duo lining will decrease number of exp point to 55% and bring only 7500 of exp that equivalents to 11 level.

This is reward for a sitting on line and killing minions. And now let’s look on other ways of gold and experience earning.

Frags, or what gankers hiding.

When i learning system of “Kills” and “Assists”, that used in League of Legends, i understand that champion that make elimination (kill an enemy champion) will be rewarded with 300 gold.

If champion killed, then reward for him decreased by 9% after 1st death and for 21% for each new death, with the lowers plank – 52 gold.

As soon as champion with a death streak perform a kill, reward for his head will go back to 300 gold.

And that system works in back way. The more you kill, the more will be reward for your head. With each sucsessful kill reward for your elimination will be increased by 10%, until it reach 500 gold.

So i create a little table:

  • 1 kill – 300 gold
  • 2 kill – 330 gold
  • 3 kill – 363 gold (Killing spree)
  • 4 kill – 399 gold (Rampage)
  • 5 kill – 439 gold (Unstoppable)
  • 6 kill – 483 gold (Dominating)
  • 7 kill – 500 gold (Godlike)
  • 8+ kill – 500 gold (Legendary)

And another one:

  • 1 death – 300 gold
  • 2 death – 273 gold
  • 3 death – 216 gold
  • 4 death – 170 gold
  • 5 death – 135 gold
  • 6 death – 106 gold
  • 7 death – 84 gold
  • 8 death – 66 gold
  • 9 death – 52 gold

But do not forget that player who did kill get a full reward, while other possible assistants share additional reward that is 58.33% of elimination reward. If a victim has a killing spree than assistants share 70% of bonus gold reward.

A little example for those who do not understand:

Le Blanc stay in middle against Cassiopeia. Le Blanc have a killing spree and reward for her head is 500 gold, then Cassiopeia call Rammus to help her. Together they kill Le Blanc, and Cassiopeia done a lasthit and get a full reward – 500 gold, while Ramus get an assist and 58.33% of standart reward (300 gold) = 175 gold, plus 70% from bonus gold (200 gold) = 140 gold, then in sum Rammus was rewarded with 315 gold.

And now, i hope, you will understand how importants are assists are for team.

Another example for a more deeply understanding:

From blue team at bottom line stay Tristana and Sona, and their opponents from a purple team – Sivir and Taric. Until 3rd minute nothing happens, a then Taric go out the lane to place wards. Tristana and Sona immediately attacks Sivir, but Sivir have a perfect micro, and she done firstblood (first kill in game) on Sona for 300 gold (this is a rewarf for firstblood).

LoL Gank

Tristana then kill Sivir and receive 330 gold for kill, and Sona get ger 58.33% from 300 gold (175 gold) plus 70% from 30 gold bonus (21 gold) = 196 gold. Sivir thinks that all went perfect, because she made Firstblood 1 vs 2, but she did not understand that blue team earned 496 gold, and this is 96 gold more than purple.

You may say that Sivir was rewarded with a bigger bag of gold then Tristana, but do not forget that Sivir is dead. Tristana is alive and probably with almost full hp, because Sivir focused on Sona. And due to this, Tristana can do 2 important things: Firstly, she can farm minions for 1 minute, and if she could do most lasthits she will be rewarded with 140 gold and 300 exp points. Secondly,  she can push the line to the enemy’s tower (usually minions fight somewhere between towers, but you can push one of the lines to attack enemy’s tower). And if you done it well, then opposite tower will kill all blue minions, while Sivir is dead or run back on the line, and this little trick will deprive her from farm.

Even on the early stage of the game this is a huge gap between commands. Now purple team must play more safely, just because they make mistake in the beginning of this game.

During the game reward for minions is increasing, as a penalty for death aswell, so you do not want to die randomly, because you will lose a good chunk of gold and experience.


Well, enemies elimination, despite the high risk, bring great reward, but the cost of a failure is also very high.

League of Legends – game where brain wins, not the fingers. That mean that safe game play, focused on secured farm and objective completion is highly recommended for a rating games. By this way you increase your power almost without risk.

This is just a tip of an iceberg, and more than 90% of information that you need to win most of your rating games is lies below so stay with us for more guides like this. If you step on this road then you must know that this is a hard way, but reward is totally worth it. But if you did not have time for all of these, there is a easier way. And i will tell you about it.

HotS: Minions pt.2

In our last article we discussed some basic info about minions, today we will go a little bit deeper. We will talk about their utility, and how they can help you.

Vision from Minions

HotS Zeratul

Vision. that provided by creeps is needed for a perfect map control. When you pushed all lines, opponents can not move around the map without being exposed. This allows you and your team feel easier and start more aggressive rotation. Especially useful it becomes, if you have a team that need to gank enemies.

When you playing at a high level, team is constantly used vision that provided by creeps, for the creation of ganks. This can be achieved by creating pressure on the various lines, thus forcing the enemy to move. After determining the trajectory of the path of an enemy (for example some hero heading to clean up a large stack at the top), you can easily take advantage of it.

HotS heroes

Remember that minions appear on each side at the same moment, so you can predict their movements. This can be extremely useful, you can predict when new wave of creeps will appear, and save your mana for them!

Minions support

Your play around minions is quite important in the duels. One of the most basic elements for understanding that minions deal damage, and this damage can be lethal! Never underestimate their power, especially in the early game. It will not be too smart to fight with the enemy character under his creeps  without proper support. They will cause a ton of damage, if you will just stand still and let them attack you.


In addition, creeps not only inflict damage, they can also help you to heal yourself by the health spheres. These spheres have become extremely important. Blizzard has recently doubled healing effect, which provides by Globes.

The importance of creeps can not be underestimated. You should always watch at your position. In addition, the creeps are able to block a huge amount of Skilshots, for example, stun from Muradin or Dehaqas tongue. In addition, they can shoot down enemy heroes from horses, that are chasing after you. Creeps can save your life in certain scenarios.

Main part of All Moba Games – Creeps

HotS Creeps

Creeps are an integral component of the Nexus. They appear endlessly and die until the heroes are fighting over their heads. However, they should not be underestimated. Creeps are a strategic element of the game. After the patch 19.0 were serious reasons to discuss precisely this aspect of the Heroes of the Storm.

Few facts about Minions:

  1. New pack of creeps appears ever 30 sec.
  2. Creeps will attack first target that they see.
  3. Creeps priority – Enemy creeps -> Structures -> Heroes.
  4. Creeps give vision to the team.
  5. They attack power increased in 300% when they attack structures.
  6. Towers will attack minions in main priority.
  7. You receive exp for killing them.

Now, on the basis of the above facts, lets proceed.


Hots Minions

The enemy creeps bring you experience, if allied hero was nearby, or if they die from the attack of the hero (spell or physical damage). The experience is overall, so the whole team has the same level. That is why it is important to gather experience from all three lines (or two, if we are talking about the eternal battle), to achieve a maximum level faster. In the initial stage of the game creeps pack gives almost as much as the murder of the hero. If your team has made five of gang and killed one enemy hero, but lost two packs with the other line, then you are in the bad situation.

Creeps are valuable, mobile containers of the EXP. At the time, when you follow the map objects and teamfight has not started yet, find the greatest concentration of creeps around and go, gather this experience. This is very important, and do not be afraid pinging for help if one of the lines is empty, and you do not get to it.

Keep your skills and let the creeps just kill each other. If enemy hero appear, then just attack him furiously. It will not allow him to receive the Exp from your pack of creeps. Methodical implementation of this technique throughout the match will result in a solid set of benefits from the experience for your team.


HOTS Creep

When you attack structures, creeps will be your shield from attacks of towers and Forts. These small units do not allow to slow down the attack speed and movement of their characters.

On the other hand you should always be wary of enemy creeps. If you see that a large bundle of creep pushes one of you line with a heroe, then focus on minions. This will help you, because forts will switch to enemy heroes.

The successful siege also leads to rewards. Taking t1 t2 tower and forts on the same line,and you will release catapult. This is completely winning line, you will force the enemy to focus on the protection.


Full guide about creeps is much more complex. These basic concepts will help you to get benefits from this small friends of the Nexus. Apply these tips into practice in the next matches, and you realize how useful these guys can be.
