Some people have said that these videos aren’t the most helpful but honestly, I’m not so sure. The audio/video quality is sometimes subpar, there are some jokes that might pass you by if they aren’t in your native language and some names and terms might have changed since the video was done. Having said that though, these tutorials will still help you with the basics and since it’s a MOBA, pretty much all the basic techniques are transferable from one game to another – especially because most of them are clones or adaptations of each other. Enjoy!
