Improving in League of Legends is a time-consuming trial and error process that includes VOD analysis, champion and role mastery paired with ingenious rule-bending, limit testing, and long practicing hours. Since it can be rather unforgiving to dive alone into this challenging learning process, players often resort to reading and watching comprehensive guides that break down the critical points into easily digestible truths. Other than that, players absolutely love coming to their favorite streamers with tons of questions that need answering.
Although normally streamers take delight in interacting with their community on a regular basis, not all streamers answer gameplay-related questions in their chat, but they rather focus on delivering fun-packed and enticing content that will make you come back for more laughter. Still, there are rare gems in League’s community that look to educate and shed light on the rather puzzling, yet ever-growing theory of League.
The best educational streamers regularly analyze their own gameplay, answer the community’s questions in chat, and even spend hours theory-crafting potentially new runes and build paths that could shape the next meta.
Here are the best educational streamers you can find on Twitch.
