Jungle is massive
While there’s much about the MOBA that’s impenetrable to newcomers, the jungle is perhaps the biggest stumbling block, and it’s telling that Epic’s graceful tutorial videos stop short of explaining what it’s for. Paragon’s map has four jungles, bridging the gap between the map’s three lanes. AI enemies spawn in camps on timers of varying lengths: the basic type reappears every two minutes and offers up experience points, while more powerful variants also award buffs when killed. These boosts last for two-and-a-half minutes, unless you die – in which case their effect will be passed to your killer. Baffling stuff at first, but you’ll pick things up quickly using our preferred tactic: finding the strongest player on the team and sticking to them like easily killed, quite annoying glue.
