4. Pay Attention to Board Placement
You may feel inclined to begin placing down your champions on the board as fast as possible. However, there is a strategy to consider. Each of your units offer different advantages and disadvantages.

It will take time to learn where precisely each unit should go. However, things should begin to fall into place after a little practice.
