I can't get kills when I play mid.

#1wantfastcarsPosted 4/20/2013 8:57:01 PM
I just can't. Is there a certain mindset I need for it? I just played beginner bots as Kassadin. I got ONE kill. Eight assists, but ONE kill. I just can't seem to lay enough damage on people to kill them, or when I fire off my burst they get low enough to run away and heal. The only times Annie Bot died in-lane was when Lee Sin came down and ganked. Do I need to be more aggressive? Last time I tried to mid as Veigar in PvP I just got completely zoned out by the enemy Lux. When I play Twisted Fate, I can only poke until they run away and go B. Is Mid just a LOT slower than top or bot? I get plenty of CS but no kills at all. What are some general tips for playing mid?

Getting kills in mid with Kassadin....

Boost AP
Boost cooldown
Avoid dieing
There are no stupid questions. Just pointless questions asked in incredibly stupid ways.

Its about baiting and bursting.
If you have a jungler, its important to use both.

The best advice I can give is to make better use your abilities and decide when enemies are low enough to burst down, ignite helps a lot with this.

Also Kassadin and Veigar both need to be level 6 before they can kill targets.

I can't gank mid as a jungler. Any tips on that?

Generally ganking mid is just a matter of hitting a CC spell since if your mid does their full burst combo it should do minimum 60%.

if you only got 1 kill on begginer bots.... i'd worry more about the basics and your mechanics in general than why you cant get kills, may sound rude but there it is

Beginner bots tend to turn and run a lot more readily than human opponents.
So unless you're good at chasing or tower diving, you probably won't get that many kills on beginner bots before late game.
