Turrets are more than just statues that standstill and they have a significant impact on your League of Legends game.
Let’s dig a little deeper. Every lane has a turret at the start, middle, and end to protect you from enemies. For the initial few minutes of the game, these turrets also provide vision and protection. However, there may be certain things you don’t know about turrets and why they’re so important to your win or defeat on the map.
For your protection
To begin with, turrets are meant to protect you. It assists you in farming the minions if you are unable to walk up the lane to challenge them or if you are worried about a gank because you are unaware of the opponents’ jungler’s whereabouts. Turrets pierce through armor and earn additional resistances in the form of turret plates within the first fourteen minutes of the game. They are really useful in defending you, but you must always keep in mind that the opponent does not simply chip away at your turret. Every plate grants the opponent gold, which you do not want to hand over for free.
Make the most of it if you’re playing under your turret because you’re on a weak side of the map with little attention from your team, or even if you’re in a horrible matchup. In this case, the opponent jungler is likely to keep a watch on you and may choose to dive you behind your turret. It is your responsibility to try to survive, deal fairly, or outplay them.
In that situation, it’s useful to know that turret shots deal greater damage the longer they’re fired at a target. This increases with each shot the turret fires, and it only resets after three seconds of the turret not actively shooting enemy champions. Allow them to assault you as soon as possible and attempt to survive as long as possible to receive the greatest deal.
But why are there turrets in the first place? Isn’t it possible to merely put inhibitors in the lane?
Although amusing to watch, it would not protect your jungle’s gates. One of the more essential underlying reasons for the existence of a turret is for this reason. They not only defend you but also a section of the map, your section. If your turret is destroyed, you will lose control of a section of the map.
As a result, the first turret in the mid lane is by definition the most essential. You’ll lose a lot of view to your jungle’s entrance if you lose that one. This provides the opponent a lot of leeway in terms of traps and ward control. Wherever a turret has been demolished, it is your task to play it a little safer and provide ample visibility control.
