This and plenty more on today’s episode!

TmT: Bee the Mid Player Edition

 
On this week’s Teach Me Tuesday Bee and Ursi work on a beginner’s guide to mid as Bee’s started to pick up the position and embrace her heel turn into a mid player (maybe, kind of)! We’re specifically talking a lot about Shadow Fiend, the different archetypal mid roles, and when you should actually gank side lanes (regardless of your teammates’ whining)! For questions we’re burning through quite a few and covering everything from mid broodmother to Axe’s tempo to farm efficiency, force staff efficiency, and plenty more!
