A simple yet difficult skill is to track enemy summoner spell cooldowns. With LeagueTracker, you can click on an enemy’s summoner spell on your tab screen when they use a summoner, and it will automatically set a timer for when the summoner spell comes off-cooldown. As a bonus, it can also track summoner spells and active items as well.

No matter how many resources you use, always remember that the best way to improve will always be your positive attitude and passion to improve!
