Early Game Champions and Low Elo League of Legends

Updated on October 18, 2013

Early Game Champions

Everyone knows of early game champions in League of Legends and the main reason people play these champions is to dominate a lane. While the lane is really important it is vital that you do well in lane, most early game champions excel in lower rank divisions

Some examples of early game champions:

  • Caitlyn
  • Draven
  • Fiora
  • Lee Sin
  • Nidalee
  • Pantheon
  • Shaco
  • Rengar
  • Taric

What are the problems with these champions?

Well the main thing that these champions struggle with is being extremely effective late game, especially if they do not have sufficient farm. This means that if you do not get a lot of kills or set up plays in the early stages of the game you will mostly like struggle later.

What are the advantages of these champions?

The main thing these champions bring to the table is a lot of early game strength and aggression. This is great for dominating your lane and is why they are so great in lower rank brackets. You are able to dominate your lane to the point of carrying the game. That is what everyone wants to do is carry late game.

Early Game Champions in High Rank

These champions have struggles and are limited in higher rank. Because the players are a lot more skilled in these matches, early game champions are a real gamble.

What is the gamble?

Well the gamble is that you have to win your lane for these champions to be great and live up to their full potential. The further you get in the ranking system the more the focus becomes to farming up and carrying in the late game.

If you do not get kills you will hurt that is the real gamble.

Once you play against high skilled players like those in diamond and high platinum, you realize that they do not make that many mistakes. They still make mistakes but it is hard to smash them hard in lane. If they are playing a really late game oriented champion and you are going for early game and the lane is even, the late game champion wins.

Picking Late Game Champions for Team Composition

The higher you get in rank the more I would recommend picking late game and picking for team comp. This allows you to comeback and win games.

The role of patience.

It is a lot harder to pick for late game because you are putting yourself a little bit of a disadvantage in the early stages of the game and when things are not going as well as you would like it is easy to get discouraged.

You have to be a person with a very high positive mental attitude when you get to higher rank. The players are better here and there is a lot more pressure to perform. It is vital that you keep a level head and do everything you can to improve your chances of winning.

With that being said, late game champions are always an ace in your pocket. You always have the fact that you picked a good teamfight late game carry in the back of your mind so you do not lose hope.

Hope is like blood in League of Legends because it is the vital life source that keeps you going throughout the game. It gives you power and allows for comebacks.

Here are a few good late game champions:

  • Corki
  • Jax
  • Jayce
  • Karthus
  • Malphite
  • Shen
  • Ryze
  • Twitch
  • Varus
  • Vayne
  • Zyra
  • Jarvan

Learning Late Game Champions Will Serve You Better as You Rank Up

When you choose the champions that you play you are essentially investing your time into learning these champions. Every champions that you learn will be the champions that you are good with and if you are good with late game champions you will have an advantage when you play in higher rank.

You do not have to put all your eggs in one basket however. It is really good to diversify and learn both strong early game and strong late game champions. This way you can still get the benefits of both while expanding your champion pool.

The more champions you can master the broader your champion pool becomes.
