So naturally, if the minion waves are battling it out closer to your side than the enemy’s, your minions will reach the fight before the enemy minions. When your minions arrive first it will give your minions the upper hand, pushing the battle back towards the enemy side. Make sense?
But if you desire to indulge in the benefits of lane freeze, you won’t let this happen. The trick is to allow their minions to outnumber yours, so when your minions arrive quicker they will be able to hold off until their next wave arrives. But I’ll give more details on this later.
*The term freezing the lane is essentially keeping the minion battle in the same place.
Why Freeze the Lane?
Now let’s talk about the irresistible benefits to this tactic. Freezing the lane in the right location can give you the upper hand; giving you defensive cover from ganks, preventing the enemy from getting gold and experience, and setting up your jungler for ganks. It is essentially an all in one solution for dominating early game, or even just playing defensively mid to late game.
Where to Freeze the Lane?
The perfect position for freezing a lane is next to the tree line on your side. In this position, you have easy access to the comfort of your tower, and the fail-proof defense of the tree line for blocking attacks. But you also cause the enemy champion to be vulnerable to the river, setting up your jungler for a profitable ganking opportunities.
