Introduction

Hello, I'm going to try to put as many counters to as many champions as possible into this guide. Hopefully I can make it look somewhat presentable and some of you may find this information useful! I will always be looking for more counter-mechanics to any and every champion in this guide so make sure to send me ideas or just leave comments letting me know what to change/add.

A-C

Ahri :
- CC her (stun, suppress, snare) before she uses her ultimate and then burst her before she has the chance to escape using it.
- She has no reliable CC. Her only form of CC is an easily dodged skill shot taunt.
HOW TO COUNTER :
Ryze, Cassiopeia, LeBlanc


Akali :
- Pick a champion that can hit her through her Twilight Shroud such as Garen, Brand
- Absolutely no cc, and very situational escapes with multiple gap closers.
HOW TO COUNTER :
Garen, Brand, Cassiopeia, Lee Sin


Alistar :
- His heal only heals his ally for half of the amount he gets, so target his lane partner instead of him. This will make them lose lane due to being out poked. *
- True damage will finish him off a lot faster while his ult is activated. **
HOW TO COUNTER :
Caitlyn*, Vayne**, Irelia**, Corki**


Amumu :
- Very blue buff dependent. Pick a strong counter jungler and take his first blue and second blue at approximately 7:20.
HOW TO COUNTER :
Shaco, Udyr, Shyvana, Lee Sin


Anivia :
- Almost all skills can be easily dodged with gap closers.*
- Prevent her from getting blue buff any way that you can so that she can't hold her ultimate out for very long.
- When she uses skills, run to the side instead of towards her because that will make it harder for Anivia to hit them.
HOW TO COUNTER :
Kassadin*, Morgana, LeBlanc*


Annie :
- Low range, but very high burst past level 6. Either out range her or survive her burst and then kill her.
- No mobility, can be easily kited
HOW TO COUNTER :
Brand, Kassadin, Veigar, Morgana


Ashe :
- Very reliant on her Frost Shot to kite in order to get kills, use champions with gap closers to get in close and kill her fast.
- Can be out ranged by other AD carrys.
HOW TO COUNTER :
Akali, Nocturne, Caitlyn


Blitzcrank :
- Banshee's Veil is the best counter for Blitzcrank.
- Place a ward (or traps)* in the bush that he's hiding in during the laning phase.
- Punish him for landing a grab on you.**
HOW TO COUNTER :
Caitlyn*, Morgana, Alistar**


Brand :
- Only cc is skill shot, use gap closers to dodge it easily.
- Don't stand in a big group in a team fight or his ult will do a lot of damage.
HOW TO COUNTER :
Kassadin, LeBlanc, Ahri



Caitlyn :
- Support with healing to counter her poke
- Sivir can use Spell Shield to gain mana from her Yordle Snap Trap.
HOW TO COUNTER :
Sivir, Kog'Maw, Soraka


Cassiopeia :
- When you expect her ult, turn your champion to face away from her so that you don't get stunned.
- Dodge all of her skills or she will get a lot of burst damage from Twin Fang.
HOW TO COUNTER :
Fizz, Gragas, LeBlanc


Cho'Gath :
- Don't fight him with low hp because Feast does true damage.
- Use skills with damage based on their hp %.
HOW TO COUNTER :
Nidalee, Rumble, Warwick


Corki :
- Does true damage, avoid being hit.
- Has a decent escape skill, but is easily countered with ranged cc.
HOW TO COUNTER :
Soraka, Taric, Caitlyn

D-G

Dr. Mundo :
- Very weak against ignite or grievous wounds debuff.
HOW TO COUNTER :
Fizz, Tristana, Miss Fortune, Katarina


Evelynn :
- Has no gap closer, easily kited with escape skills
- Can be revealed out of stealth with multiple skills ( Lee Sin's Tempest or Twisted Fate's Destiny)
HOW TO COUNTER :
Lee Sin, Twisted Fate, Tristana


Ezreal :
- Very strong early game but falls off later.
- Skill shot heavy, stay behind minions to avoid being bursted by him.
HOW TO COUNTER :
Caitlyn, Corki


Fiddlesticks :
- Pretty blue buff reliant in the jungle, very susceptible to counter jungling.
- Knockbacks can take him out of the fight while he's using his ultimate.
HOW TO COUNTER :
Gragas, Lee Sin, Shyvana, Alistar


Fiora :
- She has no ranged abilities so she can be easily kited
- Riposte allows her to win exchanges in the lane, pick a champion with a lot of sustain.
HOW TO COUNTER :
Warwick, Udyr, Ryze


Fizz :
- Has no sustain
- Can be easily harassed due to other casters' skills having much higher range.
HOW TO COUNTER :
Morgana*, Ahri, Malzahar
* Use Spell Shield on Chum the Waters


Galio :
- His ultimate can be broken by certain skills. ( Bear Stance, Decisive Strike, Three Talon Strike)
HOW TO COUNTER :
Udyr, Xin Zhao, Garen


Gangplank :
- Pantheon's passive can block his Parrrley
HOW TO COUNTER :
Pantheon, Lee Sin, Rumble


Garen :
- Loses lane to strong poke champions, but can win exchanges with almost any melee.
- Weak against ranged champs in lane.
HOW TO COUNTER :
Kennen, Gangplank, Nidalee


Gragas :
- Silence him so that he can't pop his barrel, allowing you to win trades early.
HOW TO COUNTER :
Sion, Kassadin, Talon


Graves :
- Can be out ranged by Caitlyn
- Naturally tanky because of True Grit, use a ranged AD with true damage to counter. ( Vayne, Corki)
HOW TO COUNTER :
Caitlyn, Vayne, Ezreal
