Top Team Comps #12: Split Push Comp

1 comment
SPLIT-pushing is possibly one of the most infuriating, yet dependable strategies in solo queue. It's a strategy where you try to rely on your teammates as little as possible, and even worked in the World Championships as demonstrated by Stanley of TPA. In order to execute this strategy properly, you require heroes that have strong wave clearing abilities and escape mechanisms. Thus, this lineup is born:

Top: Nidalee
Mid: Twisted Fate
AD Carry: Graves
Support: Soraka
Jungle: Shen
- Strong Poke damage
- Global Presence
- Good escapes
- Good Waveclear

- Weak burst damage
- Slightly squishy
- Low peel
- Low engage/disengage potential

You might be wondering where good ol' Yi went, especially since he's been selected as the splash art and all. Well, our ol' chum Yi was indeed split pushing God back in Season 1, but unfortunately he's fallen by the wayside. You could always toss him into the jungle for old time's sake, but...
yo ima let you finish logo"Yi I'm really happy for you and ima let you finish, but Shen is the best split pusher of all time. OF ALL TIME."

All of your lanes contain very strong pushers, which means you an easily shove a lane and group up for an objective while the enemy team is busy defending a tower. Shen and TF have strong global presences, which will also make the enemy team slightly more hesitant to engage into 1v1 or 2v2 fights. This means that after level 6, all your lanes can start playing very aggressively and pushing hard (or they can play passively and create a gank opportunity).

This team works well in solo queue where winning each lane is the key to demoralizing the enemy team and snowballing to victory. Be sure to always ward as much as possible in order to maximize your pushing efficiency.

If you see a team like this in solo queue, be sure to play aggressively pre-6. However, post 6 begin playing cautiously, ward up mid for TF ganks, and group up as soon as possible to take objectives/towers to minimize the enemy team's ability to split push all your lanes.
