How To Be A Good ADC Player in League of Legends?

Hello League of Legends players, I hope you win these matches successfully. As you already know League of Legends is a team game where 10 players divided into two teams fight over who will win the opposing Nexus first. 

This game is still at the top of the list of mega-popular games in the world, and we believe that it will stay there for a long time. In today’s article, our focus will be on ADC roles, one of the most popular but also the most demanding roles in the League of Legends. Let’s start with the guide.

ADC roles require a lot more knowledge and skills than some other roles, and this is because ADC players need to know that the course of the match lies with them. Also, ADC players must focus their game towards victory. Otherwise, the enemy team will create chances to break the lanes of your team and harass your teammates.

For starters, you need to decide which AD carry champion you want to choose. After that, you need to focus on choosing the proper runes and spells. Runes often bother new League of Legends players, but once you learn to deploy them, you will realize that your champion is much stronger than before. For example, your champion can gain extra gold or deal more damage than before.

Also, when choosing a champion, you need to know that it will not always happen that you can play the champion you want. Maybe your opponent is already taking it, and maybe your champion will be banned. In that case, you have to have an alternative, which means you have to learn to play a few more different champions in order to cope with a situation like this.

Don’t Forget Your Support 

The bottom lane is the only lane on Summoner’s Rift where two players from the same team play – ADC and its support. It is important to agree with your support on what tactics will be used against the two enemy champions. You have to warn your support not to steal your minions and not to rush into the attack until you go first. All these strategies need to be agreed upon before the game starts.

Furthermore, when choosing a champion, try counter-pick. In that case, you will know in advance which champion will oppose you, so you will be able to choose your own. This is good because if you know the strengths and weaknesses of a particular champion, you will be able to know which champions can defeat him in a fight.

Clear Those Minion Waves

What ADC players should always keep in mind is farming. ADC champions are destined for a large number of killed creeps; this makes them stronger and gives them an advantage over enemy champions. That’s why ADC champions should use the early game to kill as many minions as possible and reach level 6 before their enemies.

Also, ADC players should harass enemy champions before level 6 as this will discourage them from getting out from under their turret and launching an attack. With simultaneous farming and attempts to kill enemy champions, your ADC champion will win the gold he needs for new items and maybe win a few kills before the game boils down.

Keep an Eye on Minion Waves

We have already said that you need to kill minions, but it is crucial to control minion waves on your lane. There are three ways you can do this. The first way concerns freezing the lane. Freezing the lane means that the ADC champion last hits enemy minions close to your turret, so enemy champions will not dare to approach your turret and will be powerless. 

Your minions will also be safe. In addition to freezing, there are also options for pushing the wave. So there is slow pushing where you will try to break through the opponent’s defense by getting closer to their turret. With hard pushing, you will try to get rid of enemy minions as soon as possible, for example, while enemy champions are at the base.

Buy the Right Items

As you already know, proper build means a lot in League of Legends. ADC champions must pay special attention to build because items can significantly change the course of the game, either for the benefit of your team or the enemy team.

If you don’t know which build is best for your ADC champion, check out the various websites or read the tips of professional League of Legends players. You also have to watch out for opposing champions. Depending on them, it is advisable to build your own build. This way, you will be able to confront them more easily in a fight. Right items can do the job for your champion. 

Pay Attention to The Wards

Wards are a very important item in the League of Legends. ADC champions may not pay as much attention to wards because they rely on their support, whose job it is to place wards nearby. ADC champions need to watch out for wards because, in the early game, junglers often gank bot lane. In doing so, the ADC champion often dies, which is really unnecessary because it could easily have been prevented by setting the ward on time.

In addition, it is important to place wards across the map to know where the rest of the enemy team is located. Especially if you suspect that the enemy team is going to conquer Baron Nashor or Dragon, if your team has a ward set up near Baron Nashor or Dragon, they will be able to know when is the right time to steal that object.

Do You Know What Kiting Is?

Kiting is a technique widely known in the League of Legends gaming community. Kiting means that your ADC champion can deal damage from a safe distance and thus can easily avoid opponent spells. Likewise, while the ADC is killing the minions, he needs to move and not stand in the way, so the enemy ADC will not be able to target him. Keating is a difficult technique to learn and requires a lot of practice, but once you perfect it, you will be able to say that you have raised your gaming skill to a higher level.

Try Not to Die so Much

Every League of Legends player should try to have a lot more kills than deaths at the end of the stats game, but ADC champions should especially pay attention to die as little as possible in the lane. So, playing as ADC means that your main goal should be to live as long as possible and to try to catch every kill you can. At the beginning of the game, you should use the time for farming and setting wards, and when you reach level 6, then you can start collecting gold for better items and attacking the enemy team.

Furthermore, keep your distance. Try to kill as many enemy champions from a distance, and do not approach their turret. These are all risks that the enemy team can overcome quickly, and for them, there is nothing better than overcoming the enemy ADC champion. Remember that.
