This week our topic will revolve around Objective Control and Trading Objectives when its appropriate.  Something I've run into a lot in games (even in our League of Learning games) is a ping or call out saying/indicating "they are doing dragon" or "they are starting herald/baron" which leads people to scramble to get there just in time to see it die.  The purpose of these topics is to hopefully give us some focus on getting there BEFORE the enemy starts it.  Ideally we get it before they have a chance to react.  There are a lot of contributing factors to being able to take an objective such as a lane being pushed forcing the enemy team to spend more resources on that side of the map to get the wave under control, ganking a lane and getting a kill so that you have less enemies on the map for when you are actually going to group and take something (turret, dragon, herald, baron), hell even warding so you can see the enemy jungler is top lane and getting them to stay around and waste their time is pretty huge.  Vision in general will be massive when you want to take objectives.  Everyone has been in a game where you are pressing your advantage and pushing a tower but you don't have wards in the jungle so you can't see the flank that is about to wipe your entire team out.  Point is when it comes to objectives there are a couple ways to look at them, one is to get vision and make sure you see anyone coming when you start taking an objective or when you know the enemy is taking an objective and you wont be there in time to do anything about it then you get something in return.  They take dragon and you can't get there in time but you have your jungler top lane?  Push top hard and take the turret.  That way you still come away with something and you can look to set something up later with there being no T1 Turret in top (herald take?).

I hope to see everyone there Thursday night and we will be continuing with the new format of running groups of 5 in normals.
