This short video is about a very important component of LOL that is often overlooked by new players and that is farming. A creep score can really be the difference between winning or losing your lane and is probably the single biggest improvement you can make early on. League of Legends is a very intricate game and perfecting all of it's components is how you can become a better player. I hope you improve your farm with this exercise, let me know in the comments!

How Do I Improve My CS?
The only way to get better is to practice. However, before you queue up, thinking that you're going to magically improve leaps and bounds by reading this guide, let me warn you: it's not that easy! Queuing up is one way to practice, but it is not the optimal way to practice. In my opinion, the best way to practice something is to isolate each individual core skill, focus on them one at a time, and then bring it all together. If you try to do everything at once, you will water down your practice, and not get maximal results.
In PvP games, there are a million things to think about. Also, there is the possibility to use things you are good at as a crutch for poor CS mechanics. In a custom game, there is less to distract you from your fundamentals. Therefore, I have designed nine exercises to complete in a custom game, in the first 5 minutes of game time. Why 5 minutes? Because it's most difficult to CS in the early game, and because it's easy to fit the practice around other things. Note that the maximum possible CS at 5:00 is 38-44 CS, depending on the lane. Mid lane gets an extra wave. Another way to track maximum CS is by counting cannon waves and keeping track of which of the three waves it is. You multiply the number of cannon waves by 19 CS and add 6 CS for each wave after the last cannon. Please note that mid has slightly different timing because of the length of the lane.
The exercises are as follows:
Achieve 95% of max CS with full runes and masteries, no lane opponents, and normal items. This will let you CS almost perfectly when no one is bothering you, and makes it a huge problem for the enemy team to leave you alone in lane for long periods of time, as you will get farmed very quickly relative to other players.
Achieve 95% of max CS with full runes and masteries, no lane opponents, and normal items, but this time, keep moving between each auto attack. Stay out of auto attack range of the minions before you last hit, and go in for the CS only when you will one-hit the minion. This exercise will naturally increase your mechanical ability, and by enhancing your mobility, will allow you to remain safer in lane. (Note that you can cancel the second half of the auto attack animation by clicking immediately after the damage applies to the minion for melee champions, and after the projectile leaves your character for ranged champions. For ranged champions it can look like the ranged projectile has left the character, but when it arrives it does no damage to the minion. This is because you canceled the animation a hair too early)
Achieve 95% of max CS with full runes, masteries, no lane opponents, normal items, while moving between each CS, and alternating on each wave between auto attacking as much as possible and auto attacking as little as possible. This teaches you how to both push and freeze a lane when alone, thus giving you the option do either, depending on the in game situation.
Do 3, but add 1 bot as your opponent to simulate an enemy laner's harass. You can ensure 1 bot in your lane by adding 3 bots to the enemy team. 1 will go to each lane. Remember your goal is not to kill the bot, but to perfectly CS. You will have to weave in harass while you are last hitting to keep the bot from killing you. This will help you not only focus on the minion wave, but also on your laner as well.
Do 4, but add 2 bots for even more harass. You do this by adding a full 5 bots to the enemy team. Mid laners will either have to settle for 1 bot, or move to another lane. Unfortunately I have not found a way to put 2 bots in mid lane.
Do 5, but drop your runes, masteries, and items. This makes harder on you, and simulates the higher pressure of a PvP game, because the bots will pack a larger punch if you're not running runes and masteries. It also teaches you to last hit by a smaller margin. You will better walk the razor's edge of a minion having 10 hp when your auto hits and a minion having 0 hp when your auto hits.
