Is there even a way? -.-

With Skarner, there's so many champions I need to ban in ranked, solely because I don't want to play against them because they are so broken.

Stay away from him? He Flash-ults me.

Fight him? His DPS is too high.

Gank him? He's so tanky he can have his team help before he dies, and then you get aced.

If enemy Skarner sucks you can buy Banshee's and he will try to ult you while you have banshee's shield active. You can also play Sivir, Morgana and such that have spell block skills.

Life is 10% of what happens to you and 90% of how you react to it.

QSS is way more reliable than Banshee Veil, even dumb Skarner's players wont ult that shield. They could make the mistake against a fast alt+E from sivir/morgana, but BV is too obvious.

btw if they do the mistake against a BV, you should easily win that game.

Why not ban him ? He can be one of those champ no one want to play against, as he can really carry his team or make the difference. If you really dont want to deal with him, ban him, his gamebreaking potential is far higher than most of the champs being usually banned in soloqueue.

Ban or first pick (and trade) is the way to go.

If not, play OP champ too, fight the absurd and OP with absurd and OP :D

QSS works, but Cleanse doesn't.

Perhaps try a charater with knock back, such as tristana. Her ulti as well as her W(the jump) will allow you to stay at a fairly safe range from him. Characters who can silence are also usually effective, try Kassadin or leblanc perhaps? But be warned, if he builds tanky you will struggle to take him down unless you're fed.
Thanks to JEFFY40HANDS for the awesome sig:D
