Tournament/Clash Mode

Crafted for team-based strategies, where collaboration and pre-planned approaches are at the forefront.

Two-Stage Banning System:

Crafted for team-based strategies, where collaboration and pre-planned approaches are at the forefront.

Stage 1: This stage occurs before any champion selections are made. Each team has the opportunity to ban three champions sequentially, ensuring certain strategies or champion synergies are disrupted early on.

Stage 2: After each team has chosen three champions, this stage kicks in, allowing for a deeper level of strategy. Teams can ban two more champions, refining their strategies based on the selections made by their opponents.

  1. Prepick Counters: Get notifications on which of your team’s prepicks are countered by the suggested ban.
  2. Tier: Understand the tier ranking of the suggested ban for its respective lane.
  3. Enemy Ban Counters: Learn which enemy bans the suggested champion counteracts.
  4. Enemy Synergy: Exclusively available in the 2nd ban phase. See which enemy picks have synergy with the suggested ban.
  5. Complements Team On: This dentifies gaps or weaknesses in the enemy team composition based on their first three picks and provides suggestions accordingly (available in the 2nd ban phase).

Solo/Duo Mode

For those braving the rift either alone or with one ally, where adaptability is key.

  1. Prepick Counters: Gain insights into potential threats to your champion of choice.
  2. Tier: Familiarize yourself with the tier status of the champion in the suggested ban, ensuring you are equipped with the knowledge to make impactful decisions.

3. Benefits

  1. Strategic Advantage:
    By leveraging data-driven insights, teams can make bans that more effectively disrupt their opponent’s potential strategies, providing a significant edge even before the game begins.
  2. Improved Draft Success Rate:
    Understanding champion strengths and synergies specific to the current game patch means teams are more likely to have a successful draft, increasing their odds of a favorable game outcome.
  3. Time-Efficiency:
    Instead of relying on discussions, hunches, or last-minute decisions, the feature offers quick, informed suggestions, allowing teams to utilize their drafting time more effectively.
  4. Reduced Cognitive Load:
    The complexities of keeping up with meta-changes, individual champion counters, and lane-specific dynamics can be overwhelming. This feature simplifies the decision-making process by presenting distilled, actionable insights.
  5. Adaptable Recommendations:
    The two-stage banning system ensures that suggestions are not static. They adjust based on evolving game contexts, ensuring teams always have relevant and impactful choices.
  6. Inclusive of All Skill Levels:
    Whether a seasoned professional or a newer team entering the competitive scene, the feature levels the playing field by offering everyone access to top-tier strategic information.
  7. Enhanced Team Coordination:
    With clear ban suggestions and insights, team members can quickly reach a consensus, fostering better communication and unity in the drafting phase.
  8. Continuous Updates:
    The feature stays relevant by adjusting to new game patches, champion changes, and evolving meta dynamics, ensuring teams always have the latest strategic information at their fingertips.

4. How It Works

  1. Automatic Game Mode Detection: The app seamlessly identifies if you’re in a tournament/draft game or a solo/duo ranked/normal game, adjusting its suggestions accordingly.
  2. Input Intended Picks: Let the feature know the champions your team intends to play. This data is pivotal for the algorithm to determine potential synergies, counters, and optimized ban suggestions.
  3. Filter By Lane: For a more tailored recommendation, you can use the filter to refine ban suggestions specific to individual lanes.
  4. Dynamic Ban Suggestions: Upon the initial setup, the feature will offer ban suggestions tailored for your game mode. As the draft progresses and more information becomes available (like both teams’ first three champion selections), the feature will refine and update the ban suggestions.
  5. Engage with Team: Discuss with your teammates and contemplate on the provided suggestions. This collaborative decision-making can be particularly valuable in tournament/clash mode.
  6. Finalize Your Decisions: With the data-driven recommendations and your team’s insights combined, decide on the bans that will give you the best strategic edge.
  7. Proceed Confidently: Head into the draft phase with increased assurance, equipped with bans that are tailored for your game context and are driven by robust analytical insights.
