I need some help in rune control at start of game.
What i do is rush to a rune spot and try take the rune . If its bounty i get 50 gold from it. But of recent games, i have come across players in enemy side who come late and then steal the rune from me.
they stand on top of the spawn and do something like so that i cant click on rune and they end up clicking on it.. I tried this myself but i cant get the hang of it. They get a DD and then i get killed. How to get out of this situation?
Can a vet share some tips and tricks?

Just stand on the spawn youraelf and dont move.
It boils down to who clicks first. U might be unlucky.

Start of the game should go like this:

Mid block the creep wave
Offlane go block pull camp and circle back to rune
Safelane pile 2-3 heroes on the rune and let the carry get it (since it's always bounty now). If it's contested then the supports can easily fend off and maybe even turn it into a kill.
