Threat Champion Notes
1
Karthus Easy to dive, cant stop your ultimate, just kill it and run fast so he cant kill you while his pasive is up.
1
Teemo Really hard to fight against this one in MID, but.. is teemo, right? So here it goes: Poke him, dive him, ult him, and make him feel ashamed for his insolence. PS: Mushrooms are still bad, so build abyssal scepter.

Introduction

Hello, im an old NA player, now playing on LAS, in which i have reached Diamond tier only maining Katarina. I have mastered her, its been 4 years now, i saw victories, and also defeats, but i can tell you, this champion is by far the one that with some skilled gamer can lead easily the team to a win.
Katarina is not an AP MID which can do all by herself, she needs a team that supports her playstyle. With that said, ill try to explain all i know so far.

Pros / Cons

Pros:

+ High burst AoE damage
+ Fast mobility
+ Easy mechanics
+ Pasive skills that grants cd reset after kill or assist(the source of katarina teamfight damage)
+ No mana (hell yeah, mana potions? not today!)
+ Ability to shunpo into a lot of stuff.(wards, shrooms, creeps, neutral creeps, champions)
+ As an assasin, can easily jump in to finish off any enemy with low hp, and chainhit any other champion as soon as the first dies.

Cons:

- Low hp
- Weak against any kind of cc
- Hard to comprehend when to dive.(needs to know the abilities and mechanics of all the champions)
- If teammates arent confident of initiating a teamfight or pushing, katarina will face defeat.
