How to play Batman
At the beginning of the game, you observe the small map to locate the Dragon lane, from there you start at the buff that farthest from the Dragon. You should try to clear your jungle as quickly as possible to reach level 4 soon.
When you level 4, you move to the Dragon lane to gank the first time. If you’re lucky, your team will get a kill. After the first ganking is finished, you should call your teammates to enter the Dragon cave to get the first dragon of the match. It will bring your team experience and gold.
Mid and late game
Batman is very strong in the mid till late game with a stealthy play and surprise attack combo.
You should use the time to clear the jungle resources, then move to the remaining lanes to gank in order to put pressure on the opponent. Or you can move to steal the opponent’s jungle, and round the lane to gank.
Gradually at the end of the game, you and your teammates should focus on moving together, focusing on hitting big targets like towers, Dragons, or Dark Slayer. Sometimes you should also hide in the bushes and wait for the weak prey to enter and put together the combo to kill.
In the fighting phase, you should take advantage of your stealth to get around the back of the enemy squad to capture the opponent’s AD and Mage.
