HOW DOES THIS TEAM COMPOSITION PLAY TO YOUR STRENGTHS?

“I think one of our biggest strengths is our coordination during team fights throughout all stages of the game. Celeste, Krul and Lance have a ton of synergy as a comp and fight very well as a team. Krul initiates with From Hell’s Heart to stun one of the enemy carries. This makes it really easy for Lance to then follow up with an Impale and Gythian Wall.

If the enemy carry isn’t dead by this point, Celeste can chain another Core Collapse and then obliterate the target with Solar Storm. Not only does this composition have a massive amount of crowd control, but it provides a tanky frontline for Celeste to simply sit back and blow the enemies into pieces with her Heliogeneses.” — FlashX

WHAT’S THE BEST WAY TO PLAY THIS COMPOSITION?

“This composition is so good because it works into almost all enemy teams. Celeste, Krul and Lance are most effective into squishy and immobile heroes such as Kestrel, Alpha, Lyra. While these heroes are certainly very strong in the current meta, they offer almost zero counterplay to Celeste, Krul and Lance.

The only three heroes that can cause this composition trouble would be Blackfeather, Reza and Taka. These three heroes are incredibly mobile and can dodge much of the crowd control that this composition relies upon.” — BestChuckNa

HOW DOES THIS TEAM COMPOSITION PLAY TO YOUR STRENGTHS?

“One of our core strengths is the ability to gauge distances for different team comps that we play. In this case, if ranged carries can be protected by Lyra, this comp. can endlessly push enemies. Timing out trades and knowing when to fully engage is easily done with the range from these heroes.” — Druid

WHAT’S THE BEST WAY TO PLAY THIS COMPOSITION?

“Controlling the pace of the game and knowing our early game poke advantage, we look to put pressure from the early game and punish enemies for their mistakes. Keeping good vision and taking away the enemy jungle with our relentless poke from afar. Using Lyra to effectively zone out melee dives Kestrel and Samuel then have free reign to reposition and go for the kill.” — Mango

WHAT OTHER TIPS CAN YOU SHARE?

“This comp is quite squishy across the board; while powerful, these heroes can still be easily killed. Control the early game and use the ranged poke to your advantage!” — pQq
