Raise your freak flag pink ward
Have you figured out what the new Vision Wards are for? Have you really grasped what the vision changes were for and what you should do now? I think many people, myself included, have been frustrated by a lack of vision on their team and by a sense of frustration, a sense of “I don’t know what to do any more, this is stupid.” Reminiscing about the “old days” might follow. Ooh, you’re on your way to feeling like an old man.
First, you have to truly understand how vision has changed before you can understand how to use pinks, and how to ward. So I’ll try to explain what has really happened.
In the old system, vision was actually not strategic in the slightest. If items were starcraft units, wards would be the unit that decides the game, and whoever has more of them wins. Does that sound interesting or fun to you? Whoever had oracles and more wards, especially pink ones, simply controlled the map. That was it. You bought your vision victories. The old vision system, put simply, was vision domination through gold superiority. The new system can’t be about dominant vision due to the nature of pinks. You can only have stronger vision. The new vision system is about making deliberate, strategic decisions. If you can stick wards everywhere, there’s nothing to worry about. But right now, you will never have that ability no matter how much gold you get. So now, if you didn’t think about it much before, you should now.
