HOW TO TOWER DIVE LIKE AN LEC PRO
August 15,2019-LOL TEAM
Tower diving has always been an important and powerful tool for pro players, and with this guide, you’ll be able to take that with you to solo queue, too.
Tower diving in League of Legends solo queue goes poorly more often than it actually works out. There are just too many risk factors, including the biggest of them all – the fact that the four people you just matched up with for a game don’t know each other and have never played together before.
In pro play, however, it’s one of the most common and reliable strategies for forcing plays, getting kills, and zoning the enemy away from objectives. In fact, there are typically several successful tower dives in each and every game. Why then, do they just seem to never work in solo queue?
The simple answer is that most pro players understand the ins and outs of tower diving, no matter what stage of the game they’re in. Casual players, even in higher ELOs, have trouble gripping and understanding solid tower diving strategies. That’s not a knock on non-pros, it’s just not a skill they need to learn to climb the ranked ladder. But, with just a little bit of knowledge and practice, any solo queue player can add tower diving to their ranked strategy arsenal. Is it necessary? No, but a well-executed dive can catch your enemies wildly off-guard, and it’s just another very sharp tool to add to your belt of potential outplays.
For that reason, we spoke with several LEC pros to find out how to pull off a great tower dive, and why that talent can be so scary in the right hands.RETURN
