Hello guys,Screptal here and i'm going to show you my Chronos guide.Chronos has been nerfed to the ground in S4,where his Accelerate no longer remove basic attack movement penalty,so his late game is not as good as before.Of course,he got some buffs in compensate,for example his damage on his Stop Time got increased,section 3 and 4 of Wheel of Time got buffed and Accelerate got a CD reduction and some movement speed to compesate the nerf.Also meta shifts from late game focus to early game focus,so junglers have a easier time dealing with Chronos,but he still does good damage and has the best structure push in the game due to nerfs to god pets removing backdoor protections and reworking of The Crusher,so hunters and some assasins lost most of the push potential,and his 4th section's magical power scaling from Wheel of Time dealing more damage to objectives than before.He keeps getting buffed,so he might be in a better spot after the changes regarding snowballing(level xp changes,gold fury changes etc).
If you want to play Chronos in the carry role,you have notice that the support with probably stick with you for at least a couple of levels.When the game starts. It's important to tell your support to Ward around the purple and the entrance of the gold fury because it tells your team the positioning of the enemies,where they want to go etc.Note that Chronos has is one of the worst gods in the early game,so if you spot the enemy support and ADC at the purple/mid buff,you can call your mid and jungle to rotate for 2 free kills or force them to run away.After the first 3 minutes of the game,you should start warding around your purple and the entreance from the gold fury and try to contest oracles with Time Rift because it will give free vision around gold fury as long as your team killed both of them.As Chronos you want to get as much farm as possible in the early game without getting punished.If you find an opportunity for an easy kill,go for it as long as you get covered.If you manage to get a couple of kills without dying in the early game,you will come online a lot faster and you will destroy in the late game.Always check enemy ADC's relics and where is the enemy jungler.After the early stage of game,ADCs will be let solo in order to be monsters in the late game.What you want to do in mid game is maximaizing your farm and look to put the enemy ADC behind via ganks or 1 v 1 scenarios.Chronos has strong boxing capabilities because if you lose the fight you can Rewind and fight the enemy ADC again.If your team does not have vision on the gold fury or portal demon yet,it's wise to tell your support to buy Sentry Ward and put in the respective locations.Once you finished Rod of Tahuti,you'll have a huge powerspike on Chronos,as long as you're ahead or even,you must look to group with your team,take objectives and teamfights.A huge benefit for you at that state is using Rewind properly.If you are low health and you reset,you most likely won that teamfight,otherwise you probably lose,so be aware of enemy jungler and solo in your backline.In the other hand, Chronos is the best tower/pheonix pusher in the game because of IV quadrant of Wheel of Time+ you get an Obsidian Shard and Polynomicon,you will melt structures in no time.If you fall behind in levels,gold etc as Chronos,look to safe farm and split push.
TIP Give the red buff to the mid laner in the early game and afterwards take it as long as you're not behind in levels and gold.
Playing as mid is not much different from if you were an ADC.Your jungler will assist you in the early game.If you have the opportunity to poke your enemy mid with Time Rift without wasting your mana do it,it will probably give you an advantage and if you outclear the enemy mid and jungle,you can take their speed/red buff.If they spot you,try to get the buff and walk away or loop around their speed-blue-fire elementals or red-purple and get back to your lane.If you get invaded,call for your solo/adc and support and either force your enemy to run or they'll get killed.The main problem with Chronos mid is that he is supposed to rotate often,which limits its farm.Watch for enemy mids with strong level 5 ultimates like Poseidon or Scylla and avoid junglers that ****s you in the early game ,for instance Thanatos, Thor or Ne Zha.Don't be afraid to swap roles with your adc,you'll often need farm and let them to hold your place until you consider that you're ready to fight.You'll want to check enemy mid and jungle relics,if they have Purification Beads you have to be mindful about possible outplays.What you want to do in mid game is maximaizing your farm and look to put the enemy MID behind via ganks or 1 v 1 scenarios.Chronos does amazing against most mages,because he can Rewind out of danger and come back and kill them because their spells are on cooldown,and yours just got refreshed.Once you finished Rod of Tahuti,you'll have a huge powerspike on Chronos,as long as you're ahead or even,you must look to group with your team,take objectives and teamfights.A huge benefit for you at that state is using Rewind properly.If you are low health and you reset,you most likely won that teamfight,otherwise you probably lose,so be aware of enemy jungler and solo in your backline.If you manage to kill the enemy mid before they can react in the end game,you'll most likely get FG without any contest,and if your enemy contest it just fight them and possibly kill them.If you fall behind in levels,gold etc as Chronos,look to safe farm and split push.
TIP Give the red buff to the ADC in the early game and afterwards take it as long as you're not behind in levels and gold.If you feel that you can get a kill ,you can have it.
As an adc,I prefer to play Chronos with one of these supports:
1. Athena,even as a jungler
8. Ymir,even as a jungler
9. Guan Yu
10. Sun Wukong
11. Odin,even as a jungler
As an mid,I prefer to play Chronos with one of these junglers:
8. Ne Zha
12. Da Ji
