First impressions can often lead to misjudgement about a subject. Whether it is a co-worker, a restaurant, or in this case, Strife, it doesn’t take long to realize that S2games has developed a MOBA that certainly throws traditional mechanics out the window. However, there are many players from other MOBAs such as League of Legends and DOTA2 that remain stuck in old habits that are detrimental to their success in Strife.

Because of these vast differences between games, let’s take a look at laning in Strife and how to use its unique traits to your advantage. Continue reading
