Silly things you thought while new to the game

I was reminiscing about my time as a newb (as opposed to noob), and remember explaining to my younger brother who played more than I did that junglers were useless and cost teams games.

Silly as that sounds, now that I think about it though, I think I was right considering I was under level 20 at that point. Watching some lower level games right now and thinking about what mine were like, duo top/mid was much much better than players with crap runes/masteries and no idea what they were doing trying to jungle

I didn't know you could use keys 1-6 to activate items, so I would manually click pots/on use Items...

I didn't buy any items my first few games.

Hmm... When I first started I read guides pretty much constantly... I never made any thoughts of my own that I couldn't find the answer to SOMEWHERE in a guide, and I played Magic the Gathering somewhat so I knew to read things carefully for actual meaning....

I do remember always clicking on items rather than using the number keys for quite a while. I think that was the only dumb thing I had never looked up and kept doing like a scrub...

That flash was broken-ohwait.

but more seriously, I thought Smite was useless. I played jungle when I first started, but I mained fiddles, so killing it wasn't a problem. I always thought smite was dumb and useless since I would kill it at almost full hp anyways.

Most of the things I thought when I was new actually carried over to now (partially because I had people play with me when I got into the game). For example:

-People who don't buy wards are stupid. Fid ult + Fear + Drain was enough to pretty much guarantee a kill on anyone low level (and a lot of the time at high levels), and t could all be prevented with a single item.

-Fiddles was broken for the above reason. While it's not completely true (he's not quite broken), I'd still say he's very powerful and underestimated.
