I. Observations on what TPA does in their openings
1. Group as 5:
In all 9 games TPA groups after leaving fountain. As I mentioned previously if you 5 man steal something against a team that is split, you will usually come out ahead a smite on your Jungler, which can either facilitates another steal or prevent one.
2. Put a Wraith Ward:
Taipei Assassins always goes for this ward, without exception. This Ward has been described by casters as the “Throat of the Jungler”. Note that the Ward position discussed here is actually referring to two Wards at once, one the Ward which is placed directly in front of Wraiths, and second the Ward that is placed inside the Wraith Brush. Teams prefer the later one, however due to the extra possibility of being assaulted when approaching this bush, the former one is the more commonly placed.
