How to play Aleister
When entering the match, increase Skill 2 for Aleister first. This is the main damage skill, as well as helping him to clear the soldiers quickly.
After clearing the first wave of creeps, he has reached level 2 and acquired Skill 1. This Skill will stun when the target is stepped on. With these 2 skills, you should actively move to the sides of the lane to help your teammates push or counter gank in the best way.
Mid and late game
Since Aleister had his Ultimate, he started to be a threat to the enemy team when confronted. Especially when he has a certain amount of cooldown reduction. Then it’s only about 20 seconds that you can use your ultimate once. And every time he uses his ultimate, the enemy team will definitely have one person on the board to count the numbers.
He cleans up the creeps very quickly, you just need to use Skill 1 to combine with Skill 2 to clean the wave. After clearing your lane, you still keep the gameplay of moving to support the surrounding lanes to maximize the team’s advantage.
Gradually in the late game, you should focus on moving with your teammates rather than farming. In teamfights, the times that stun or root the enemy champion will greatly help the team win the fight. Please try to use skill 1 correctly to hit as many enemy heroes as possible.
