Introduction

I'm tired of being of the team that gets dominated by the swain and everyone cries, OMG SWAIN SO OP! Why didn't they pick 2-3 ignites when they saw the enemy select swain!? (this is in ranked). Why did our alistar get exhaust when there was no main attack speed meleer? Why didn't he grab an ignite?

When 2-3 people could have picked 1 summoner spell to lock down an entire enemy champion, why didn't they?!

It is so aggravating that I have decided to write a guide about it.

I will call it: The Art of the Counter Pick. It will be in categorical order and alphabetical order. They will be short and sweet. A simply list of counters.

I WILL PUT CHAMPS IN ALL CAPS THAT NEED TO BE SHUT DOWN OR HAVE EASY COUNTERS.

IMPORTANT: This guide will definitely be updated because I obviously won't be able to think of all the counters for every single instance. PLEASE COMMENT AND TELL ME IF I'VE MISSED ANY COUNTERS!!! This guide is open to suggestions and criticism. It is a living guide and will be updated. Upvotes please, the community should not be ignorant to this stuff.


Guide Top

Hard counters to everything

OLAF: His ult counters all CC. So, just putting that here so I don't have to constantly put his name down.

POPPY: her ult saves you from everything, except the person you ulted.

Morgana: Her spell shield saves you from ALL abilities, even blitz's pull.

Healers obviously counter all damage.

Silence counters all abilities except a few, like tryndamere's ult.

All of the above will not be mentioned later.


Guide Top

Counters to Skillshots

MOVESPEED: can save you from any skill shot if you have quick reactions!


Guide Top

Typical counters

Mag res for mages and Arm for Physical damage

Blind (from teemo, corki): reduces damage well
Exhaust: Counters attack speed based champs. AMAZING against xin zhao, gangplank, etc.


Guide Top

AKALI

To counter her stealth:
- Vision wards
- Oracles

These will grant you the ability to focus down this squishy champ, ruining her viability.


Guide Top

Alistar

There isn't much you can do against his CC except CC him.

To counter his ultimate:
Corki (true damage)
Ignite (true damage)
Vayne (true damage)
Olaf (true damage)
Chogath (true damage)
Irelia (true damage)

To counter his W and Q:
Banshee's can prevent

Vayne, cho, and ignite are very good at knocking down his health after he's ulted.


Guide Top

Amumu

His Q and R can keep you held down for a pretty long time.

Counters:
QSS (quick silver sash)
Cleanse
Gangplank (remove scurvy: W)
Banshee's can prevent
Merc treads (or any tenacity)


Guide Top

Anivia

Anivia's wall is basically uncounterable, except dashing over or flashing.

QSS
Merc treads (or any tenacity item)
Cleanse


Guide Top

Annie

Basically her stun is the problem

To counter her stun:
QSS
Merc treads (or any tenacity item)
Cleanse


Guide Top

Ashe

(bear in mind, exhaust is not the best of counters for her because she hangs in the back, well protected. but if you can reach her, it's not a bad counter.)

Ashe counters:
Thornmail
Focus fire
Randuin's (slows her when she attacks, plus the active)
Frozen heart (slows her attack speed)


Ashe's ult/Q:
QSS
Merc treads (or any tenacity item)
Cleanse
Banshee's can prevent


Guide Top

Blitzcrank

Blitz has a ton of CC and a good blitz can wreck your team.

Counters to blitz are:

Minions can take the pull for you
Movespeed can help you dodge his pull


Guide Top

Brand

Counters to his stun:
QSS
Merc treads (or any tenacity item)
Cleanse


Guide Top

Caitlyn

Counters to her ult:
Partner can take the ult for you (sometimes this is stupid! quarter health kassadin shoudln't take a hit for 2/3 health ashe while retreating!)

Banshee's can take all the damage.

RED ELIXIR!! If you know it will kill you, but 140-200 health can save you, pop that elixir!

Tristana (reduced healing)


Guide Top

EVELYNN

Lots of people have trouble against this champion. can't tell you how many teams i've been on that fed this person.

- Vision Wards
- Oracles

Best to use vision wards in lane and oracles after teamfighting has become the primary form of engagement, rather than ganking.


Guide Top

Ezreal

Basically, movespeed and other things listed in the first few sections.


Guide Top

Fiddlesticks

How to stop his ult:
Any form of CC WHILE HE IS CHANNELING! After his ult has finished channeling, there is no way to stop it.

Any form of CC.

To reduce his drain:
Ignite
Executioner's calling
MF (healing reduc)
Tristana (heaing reduc)


Guide Top

Galio

His ult is easily countered by any form of tenactiy.

CCing him will still grant his ult full damage, but will decrease the amount of time you are taunted.

Banshee's can prevent. As well as other things listed in the first few sections.


Guide Top

Gangplank

Not many things stop gang plank's stuff, nor do they really need countering except:

EXHAUST and Blind! But be careful, he can W out of your exhaust or blind, so time it right.


Guide Top

Garen

garen has no real counters either. Just stuff listed in the early sections.

His popup is not counterable.


Guide Top

Blind, Exhaust eliminate jax from being a threat.


Guide Top

Karma

Any form of healing reduc, But throw the healing reduc on the person you wish to focus.

Her shield is basically uncounterable.


Guide Top

KARTHUS

Karthus' hard counter is SORAKA. Her ultimate can basically undo his ultimate. Her base heal for her ult is less than his by a bit, but her ap scaling for her ult is better.

Karth's ult scales .6 and soraka's ult scales 1.3.

A RED ELIXIR may also be used to save you from his ult.

Kassadin's ult or flash may be used if you can time it perfectly to disappear the milisecond his ult hits, probably won't work for you.

Banshee's can save you from his ult aswell.


His wall is countered by:
QSS
Merc treads (or any tenacity item)
Cleanse
