HOW TO CLIMB FROM LEGEND TO ANCIENT

The path from Legend to Ancient can be tough as players have learned to punish mistakes at this level. Games will be harder but still filled with errors to capitalize on. We will be focusing on high mobility heroes that can push out waves quickly to create pressure on the map. How and where fights are taken usually determines the outcome of games at this level so initiation and counter initiation are king.
Positioning and vision control win games at this level more than farming
Out maneuver your opponents with superior map movement and game sense
Focus on heroes that can do multiple jobs while scaling well
