Introduction

My real name is Mareks, I am from Latvia and i play on russian server. Currently I am Diamond 5 . It is my first guide so I am trying to learn into this. I really like to play Katarina because of her mechanics and playstyle so i usually play her when i want to win. This is my first guide, and im only 15 so i actually need a bit of learning.

Playstyle

So i will tell my own playstyle.
Lane phase, if you are against a squishy champion try to harass him untill like 40-60% hp. When your opponent has 250 or less hp you can try to go all-in on him.So at level 3 your combo does ~200 damage if enemy does not have item for resist, within ignite it would be ~350 + AA it would be 400. If you feel that you can kill the enemy, go for it. If you can kill the enemy but he is under tower try to kill him and Shunpo to a trinket.
Roaming phase, when you hit lvl 6 check if your botlane is pushing, if they aren't then go for gank. Katarina is REALLY GOOD when she is fed. But you can't get really fed only by being on your lane. So try to gank other lanes or help your jungler with his invades.
Teamfigts,So teamfighting is all about engaging in the right moment. If enemy team has a lot of control try to wait until they use it. If they are waiting you then try to engage on the enemy squishies, because at late game you can oneshot them in 1.5 sec just by using Q+E+W and a bit damage from your R. When they are starting to focus you try to bait their spells and going into Zhonya's, well timed Zhonya's can save from many situation.
