Lane survival runes, hard, full of poke, boring lane to be in, at least she can't true stealth poke us under our own turret anymore, that's cool right? She keeps getting nerfed which is really nice, ur only chance to trade is level 1, when get she shroud just chill unless she wastes it, dont even try to ever get cocky and do stuff like diving even if you are really ahead, so risky cause of all the stuff in her kit, spam Q and farm, tiamat rush, later on split away from her.
Scaling/mixed set up, El cocaracho, he is a fat champion, has no dashes, you can get fury and spin on him lvl 1 and beat him up especially if he doesnt start Q, later on just dodge his Q and you good, in mid game all u need is to watch out for his ulti, and use ur ulti sooner than usual, cause he can suprise u with his burst sometimes, outside of that, a fun matchup
Scaling set up with dorian shield/long sword start, A boring ass lane if knows what he is doing, if he has no ignite you can trade lvl 1 with fury, its just about punishing his cds especially if he misses E, but over all a hard lane cause you get punished by half of your health bar if u mess up while his mistakes goes on unchecked mostly, the higher you get in elo the worst it gets, cause any gank/disturbance in wave which causes the lane to push for him could be fatal, and darius players learn to wave control well and punish there over extended enemies, just scale and farm if you see no chances of a kill, especislly if he rushes tabies like a rat, if the wave starts pushing into him you can look to trade some of your hp to make him push the wave, which is by letting him auto you or Q the wave to make him push you in, a very good way to get back the wave into your favour if it gets messy.
Scaling/mixed runes with dorian sheild/long sword start, one of my top bans, a very abused/highly over tuned champ, can beat u up hard early, till level 6, farming is all what is recommanded, cause you scale harder than her into the 1v1 mid game, in the late game its kinda evenish... usually what l do to get a kill, is past level 6, if she over extends and try harrase me and messed up a Q or something, she will turn around after she Q so l ghost W to run her down, over all not my fav champ to face
A complete skill based matchup, check foggedftw2 channel to see how the matchup goes, trading, and what runes to use
Scaling set up, its all up with how the morde plays this matchup out, if he agro and walks up for minions early on u can punish him by spinning into him with fury level 1, try to fake going for minions to bait Q from him, if you feel uncomfortable and u think his jungler is top side just try to make him Q u with the wave so u get pushed in, over all not an easy matchup if the morde rushies tabies plus seekers armguard cause its a 2200 gold, god mode power spike, if he does that, just chill and scale, later on you can beat his ass with ghost/ignite plus good items, running ignite gives you a very high kill pressure early on.
Survival runes, MAYDAY MAYDAY MAYDAY, get yo ass ready to be spanked, cause this snake will set you up for a beating surely, survive and dont get poked down so low, cause her kill combos are suprisingly fast and deals tons of damage, and her kiting ability is unreal, a stright up broken champ, you can outsustain her mana pool early which is important, l always bans her if l go trynda mid, in the mid to late game avoid 1v1ing her cause of how risky it is, you can 1v1 her if you don't have boomer reflexes "like l do" or have some korian ping to dodge her ulti, this match up is fairy easy in low elos but once you past diamond, things get nasty real quick.
Scaling/mixed set up, she hurts in early level, she will state check u hard pre level 4, what camille wants to do to win this match up is to abuse her shield passive early on by trading harashly into you, try to get a kill pre 6, get CS lead and depending on how much of a lead she has, she will stall till she gets her power spikes, usually level 13/triforce, by that she outscales you and makes sure to not play into your power spikes, so what you need to do, is avoid trading pre 4, bait her shield passive by AA her and letting her AA you then you spin away, do it away from walls cause she can re engage with her E quickly, her shield has a 16 sec CD as l know, so u have a window to trade with her if u bait it, post 6, she is really weak, her ulti doesn't help her much as you are not the one who is trapped with her, so look for harash trades post 6 and forcing all in's as she is weaker than you, you will destroy her in 1v1 till she gets triforce/tabies so till then, abuse her, later on the matchup becomes more into her favour as she scales well, but there is still rooms for outplay etc, like if she misses a E, u land a W slow, stuff like that, not a very bad match up, a fun one.
Lane survival runes, this lane could go easy, or could go even, depends on how the malphite build, if he goes comet and tries to be full ap to poke you out, congrats u got a free lane, cause with this set up u cant be poked out before he run dry on mana, but if he goes full tank with grasp, trades could be annoying with him, he has no lane priority and u can make him loss cs by shoving him in repeatedly, but dont go for auto+spin combos on him under turret cause after 6 he can time he ulti well and put u in a big trouble, u can get demolish instade of resiovle rune so u can put even more pressure on him and his turret, you can't get solo kills after his second buy, the way u win is by turret plates and cs lead
Scaling set up, dorian blade start, its a free lane if you dont mess up, if she ever starts Q early and goes melee to the wave just beat her ass up if you have fury, the only time u got to respect her is when she hits lvl 3, after 6, if u are even with her she is easily donzo, just watchout for two things, her 5 stacks passive, and the possiblity of her kiting you with your minions, its hard to find good irelleas, over all, easy lane
Scaling/mixed set up, you gotta respect his early damage, past level 4 you can trade with him but not with spinning into him randomly cause he can take strong short trades with you, extended ones is where you beat him, dont ever go under his turret while him being around for any reason cause he will taunt you and kill you, in mid to late game if he too tanky just ignore him and always shove him in if he splits against you then take his jgler camps
Scaling runes with ghost and shield start, he is broken right now, but u can abuse him hard in lane if you manage the wave well, the way you set up kills on him is by staying high hp, getting fury and letting him shove you in and over extend, when you have the wave in a good position, you can make the all in easier if you can bait out his phase rush by giving him a free combo on you if he is dumb enough to baid his phase rush out, then u good to go to ghost on him, W then beat his ass, in the later stages of the game he can be very annoying to deal with him, he scales super well, even if you shut him down hard, he will farm till 2 items and he will Q E Q you and randomly 70% of your healthbar disappers, broken AF and to make it worst, he will be kinda tanky too, u can kill him if he doesnt have zonia and u catch him in a bush or suprise him
Lane survival kit, he is a pretty annoying match up, considered a counter, but he is nothing more than a rat, stay high in hp and wait for tiamat before u start trading if u want to play it safe, u can run him down if u have good hp/ fury and u know where he putted his shrooms, sweeper is cool if u struggling with his shrooms, if he goes grasp/ignite don't go hard pre 6 cause he is tankier than usual and could kill you suprisingly fast, nowdays its easy to see his blind as it changes the color of the whole screen, if u split against him u can beat him if he is away from his turret.
Scaling/mixed set up, a very good ban opinion, he is a strong lane bully and a counter, the only time you can actually fight him is level 1 and 2 with fury, u can go agro on those levels but he reaches level 3 he starts winning all trades, there is different ways to play this match up, you can go dorian blade and try to get an early kill on him and snowball the lane, but its high risk way of playing the lane, if u fail, you will be punished pretty hard, plus it becomes REALLY hard if the croc runs ignite PTA, or you can run dorian shield and farm safely and accept that the lane isn't yours, its my personal way of playing the lane myself, first, cause l outscale anyways and l avoid playing into his hands, so l focus on farming as good as l can, and avoid giving him a freeze or anything like that cause its very punishing, if you prevent renekton from snoeballing on you, he is really really weak when the midgame comes, cause he is that type of champs who really needs to snowballs to be useful, one problem, if he gets jungler pressure in this matchup, it could turn into god mode dives survival game. You outscale him later in the game if you don't fall so behind and reach around 3 items, ER and IE with boots, even then he is pretty annoying to deal with... PRO TIP : if you find him splitting in a sidelane alone away from his turret and you both are even in items "u both item and half for example" and u got your ignite up, you can kill him if you do a trick that even good renektons fall for, which is spinning abit below him "with fully fury for sure" his normal reaction will be stunning you, AA, Q, E away, but what you want to prevent is his double dash from his E, he got 2 parts "dashes" on his E, he only gets the second dash if he uses E through an enemy unit, jungle camp, or anything the E can actually do damage for, if you prevent him from stepping close to you and double dash away, and make him fail by giving him only 1 dash, that gives you the chance you need to run him down, land a W slow and lay down the hammer on him, you will 100% get him this way.
Lane survival set up, he is a lane dominant, can beat u up so damn hard if u play into his hands, but if u keep chill and farm and ignore him, he is a joke, he doesn't scale, just keep your hp high and rush tiamat, and spam ping ur team if he is missing post level 6
Scaling/mixed set up, whenever someone picks my trynda l pick the dawg, l consider him a counter, yes u beat him early, but he is the dawg and he scales like the dawg, once he gets a shen plus tabies, you gotta respect him, cause if you keep doing bad trades into him he will beat your ass, the good thing you have is he is fat and slow and can be bullied early the best way to kill a nasus in lane is by wave management which you should know very well as a toplaner, plus you can disengage from him easily by spinning over walls, mid to late game, if you didnt shut him down hard, he screw u over in a 1v1, so just shove him and steal camps plus look for kills on his team, getting a merc or tabies is nice so u can deal better with him
Scaling set up, riven is a broken champion if used by people who one trick her, they take her combos to a level where you get insta killed from 60% hp to 0% by a flashy combo where you can't even move your champion, but don't worry, diamond and below does't have that many riven hardcore OTPs, so you have the upper hand mostly in this matchup cause your champion is much more stright forward to do and ur combos are easier to pull out, basics of this match up is to hold on to your fury and keep high hp, level 1 get some fury and walk towards her to AA trade, if she uses her Q to farm level 1, and u know it is on CD, spin into her even if you have 20% fury, cause riven can't win AA battle with you, she needs her abilities to beat you, this matchup heavily relays on which summoner spells both of you runs, if she runs TP, you can be more dominant, if she runs ignite, give her alot of respect, if u run ghost, look to scale and get 6 before going too hard on her or look for CDs windows, once she reaches level 3, u to wait her to waste her abblies before going in, if you spin into her, she can disengage very easily. Her Q is her main ability, so the best time to go in is when she wastes that one, and wave control is VERY important in tgus matchup cause if she evet freezes the wave on her side, u wont be able to farm plus ahe harras you for free, post 6, care for her burst, stay high hp and wait ur chance for all ins, ulti on 20% hp if she has ulti, or 25% if u want it safe. In the mid game she will rush 45% CDR, so punishing her CDs becomes very hard "cause she won't have ones" so ghost becomes EXTREAMLY strong in this stage of the game, cause if you catch her away from her turretcyou run her down with ghost, she will have very high burst so respect that, she still annoying to deal with at all stages of the game tho.
Lane survival, its all about playing around his empowered Q and trading around it, he is weak early so u can abuse that, trade with him when u has good amount of fury, if he plays super safe just keep shoving him in and make him loss cs, run ignite into him and wave control well, its an easy matchup unless it gets for the very late game when he goes god mode.
Lane survival, Ahhhh.... my fav ban, a huge pain the deal with, a hyper scaling, broken ass, anti-melee and PERCENT MAX HEALTH TRUE DAMAGE champion who has stealth with self peel, just dont 1v1 her, just... dont, if she has bork plus ulti, u oofed, keep chill and farm, later on split away from her and call for your ap malphite support to bomb her and give her the right treatment....
Scaling/mixed set up, he got poke early, but not much else, he cant poke you out as his range is pretty low, u way stronger than him early but he scales well, the lane surely favours you especially the intractions between your ultimates, just get him to over extend, u just need to wait, he will push the wave anyways cause of his passive, right now l feel he is kinda in a weak spot if u ask me, if u want to play it safe, when you go for all ins, go in with nearly full hp, he cant deal with you then cause u will force him to ulti before you, which means an automatic loss for him for most of the time
Scaling set up, easy money for the most part, all u need to do is bait him to go into you, not for you to go into him, so u can advantage of your super sustained damage against him, like, for example walk near him, let him for confedent to Q you, kit him abit, let him hit you, hit him once to active your lethal tempo then wait his ilence to end so u can spin and lay down the hammer on his head, level 1 and 2 u can be agro with fury, u scale way too hard on first item plus boots that u run him down so hard he cant do much, after that when he stacks armor he becomes harder to kill, all over its an easy matchup, can be rough if he gets a lead. One last important tip, if u want to stop his healing "passive" you can land a W slow on him if he ever turns his back for you, it will stop his healing just like attacking him.
Scaling setup, Dumbass toplane pick, he is really strong early levels, personally l farm till level 6 then l just, stright up beat his ass even if lm behind abit, over all an easy matchup just dont get cheesed by getting cocky ever early, he is stright up stronger level 1, 2, 3 so please no all in's before u at least reach level 4.
Scaling/mixed setup, Easy matchup, dodge E and spin with fury, u beat him up all game long, just care about his ulti, it can do good damage if you dont pay attention for it, if you get trapped in his wall, remember that critting his wall will reduce your spin cd by 1 sec, so u spin again on him
Lane survival setup, Well, he is kinda broken, but not for trynda, go lane survival and survive early by spamming Q as he spams his Q, no need to go hard early, you can go hard on him with trades after level 6 with your tiamate, when he is low, ghost and beat his ass up, if you beat him up in the barrel games thats even better, you will destroy him with style, another thing to keep in mind before going on him early, u can wait him to waste is passive on minions by auto attacking them, so u can go in for a trade, cause his passive is pretty annoying as it slows u, does damage, and makes him zoom around.
Survival kit, another toplane rat, he is harder than temmo to catch out thanks to his 0 cd lightening rush, just stay high in hp and try to take trade with him if u have fury and u know u wont take too much damage, he got no sustain so ur trades can get u somewhere even if they are bad, later on in the game it can be annoying to 1v1 him if u have no MR, but if u catch him away from his turret it can be an easy kill
Her being a wife is enough to make her an EXTREME threat, she can beat us all game long while we can't even fight back!!!... jokes beside, just farm early game and don't trade, post like 1 item she can't face u in a 1v1 without being ran down, she has no mobility what so ever, if she for some reason runs phase rush just to kit you, u can bait it out, then go in when it is on cd
Scaling runes, its just a free lane, nothing much to say about it, she is melee early on, you can turn those first 6 level into a living hell for her, zone her off cs, beat her up, freeze the wave, then beat her ass with ghost if she ever over extends, later on she still struggles big time dealing with you in a 1v1, one of the easiest matchups out there
Scaling runes, dorian sheild start, its kinda annoying if the gnar plays well and safe, you can punish him early pre level 3 before he gets his jump, when he gets the jump it becomes tricky, you need to know how to trade with him without being ran down with him AA you after you disengage, you only trade with fury, and you should trade when he misses a Q or comes close to you to the point where you can spin behind him, and trade into mini gnar, mega gnar has too much states to trade with and stuns, you should get a double crit buy *50% crit* if you get an early lead on him, cause that will make you snowball harder and run him down even easier, ghost is very recommanded
Scaling runes, ignite, Illaoi is a strong champion vs melees, but you are the melee that illaoi does't want to face, you have a huge upper hand vs her pre 6 if she ever over extends and misses a E, you can spin with fury to lay down the hammer on her, she is not a champ pre 3, so u can shove her in no problem and let the wave shove into you and freeze it on her, also if illaoi is bad and stands in the middle of the lane, even if she lands an E on you, you dont have to worry, cause her tentacles will be so far that they wont slap you, post 6 just respect her, you can't just spin into her anymore, she can ulti you and kite, which can lead to your death, you can spin into her if you have fury plus ignite, if you play it right she dies easily, you just need to learn to dodge her tentacles so u can win every trade, or spin in, bait her ulti then walk away, heal up, and set up a dive on her, later on it becomes very hard to 1v1 her if she stacks tons of armor, you can let your adc deal with her or flank her team, over all a very easy match up, but give her respect and dont turn your brain off while playing against her.
Scaling runes, dorian shield/long sword, ornn is a strong melee bully, he has a very strong trading combo on level 3, pre 3 you can take good trades into him, you can dodge his combo if you avoid being around the thingie that pops off his Q, so he cant E combo you and knock you up, over all, just sustai n his poke, and make him run low on mana then all in, you can look for kills till he stacks too much armor, then you can just farm and ignore him , tiamat is recommanded as you will be just clearing waves vs him later on and to help you snowball better, ignite is recommanded if you looking for early lead.
Scaling runes, ghost highly recommanded, cloth armor and 4 poitions start, its a cheesy matchup, its there to counter you, she got very good poke, and very good disengage, plus she builds lethality to annoy you even more, tabies rush is quite nice if you dealing with a high ad damage based team, the way you beat her is by farming while staying high in hp, getting fury, let her over extend, and run her down after landing a W and ghosting, if she wastes her E by any chance to just harras you or to farm while being over extended, just beat her ass up, if she goes gull kiting cheese with the slowing rune * I forget the name* just ignore her and farm, you wont be able to do much in a 1v1 vs her then
Scaling runes, ignite and dorian sheild, oh well! He was a juggernut and a states ball before they decided to kill his ass, used to be a nightmare matchup, but now its just cool and you scales way harder than him, just take harash trades with him level 1 and 2 before he gets his E "grey health" so you can set him up for a hard laning phase, just dont let him AA you 3 times cause it could go pretty bad if he do so, if you feel you cant kill him just scale and kill him later, he is not a big threat, just a cheese match up, or troll honestly.
Scaling runes, ignite and long sword start, vi is a cutie, that won't help her against a states ball like you, her level 1 and 2 is SUPER weak, she doesnt have a good way to trade with you beside poking you with her E and try to all in you, she has a good peel for her jgler but alone, she cant do much vs you ESPECIALLY post 6, easy match up, just avoid her E poke, thats all
Lane survival, you E, he E, he Q, you Q, tell me a more enjoyable lane to be in? All ins are possible early, if u can bait his E, or if he wastes it, u can also out sutstain his mana too, but once he gets around 20% cdr just leave him and farm, no all in is possible post that point, DO NOT harras him close to his turret especially post 6 cause he will pull some woody fruity wombo combos on you and poop on you, mid to late just split and rotate away from him if he splits vs u, tax his jungler, do trynda stuff you know.
Scaling/mixed set up, voli bear is a states ball just like you, he is kinda really annoying to deal with cause he is a bigger states ball early game than you, if you dont play around his misplays, you cant do much about him, if he uses his spells to farm, you can go in for a trade, but mostly its a farm match up, you outscale his ass HARD post 3 items, before that he has the upper hand especially if he rushes armor, alot of it, his e can disturb ur spin so watch out for that, ignite recommanded for early pressure
lane survival, dorian sheild, He is known as the ultimate lane bully who shoves u under your turret and forces u to stay there all laning phase while poking you, but as a tryndamere, u have so much sustain and u can destroy his turrets while out sustaining his mana pool, he has alot of skill shots, so dodging is important in this matchup, he will try to throw stuff at u when u go for his turrets, but u can dodge it and destroy them, he is nothing without his turrets, when the game starts u can also head to the lane right away to prevent him from setting up turrets, if u let him set up too much he can poke u out, dives and kills on him is easy if u take out all turrets and stay high hp high fury, his base states are nothing compared for you.
Runes depends on how safe you wanna be... any set up is possible just pick dorians shield start, kata is a highly abused assassin, she is strong over all but she struggles big time vs tryndamere, what she wants is poking you till you are low enough for a kill combo with ignite, which u can spam Q and not step on her daggers to prevent that from happening, her level 1 is dog shit so if she ever walk for a minion just beat her ass, her level 2 is a very strong spike so care for that and respect it, if u are around 50% hp she can combo kill you, outside of that she isnt much of a threat, if u want to kill her make sure there is no minions around for her to kite, or take her low enough for a dive, she struggles vs u in all stages of the game.
Survival set up/ mixed, dorian shield, swain got pushed out of solo lane completely, so finding him vs you is kinda troll, you can take harash trades vs him especially if he misses his E "pull", with ignite you will have so much kill pressure on him, plus you can out sustain his mana pool early, just watch out for one thing, swain can get really tanky with his ultimate so he can actually suprise you with the tankness he can pull out, so if u want to play it safe, dont dive him full hp if he hits 6, outside of that, he is an eaay matchup.
Scaling set up, attrox is a melee lane bully but he got nerfed hard and that match up now favours you, his level 1 is pretty weak, so if u see him starts dorian blade, you can take a very harash trade with him level 1 with fury, and by dodging his Q's, cause he has no sustain outside his passive, and landing his Q on u heals him abit, early game he kinda has the upper hand on you, around level 3 till u get first item, then u outscale hard, tips about dealing with him is waiting him to use his passive on minions before going in, dodging his most important Q "third one" is important to make trades good for you, u can all in if he over extends while u are high HP high fury, your sustained damage is way too much for him with lethal tempo, you can dominate him or outscale him, if u look for the outscale pick ghost, if u look for early kills pick ignite
Scaling set up, u dont see him much top, but he is a really weak and abusable champ early, you take ignite for early kills and to stop his healing, he STRUGGLES big time if u ever extend a trade vs him, but his short trades are pretty nice, he scales well and when he stacks armor he becomes pretty annoying, early game just look for kills and to freeze on him, dont let him get cannons by blocking cleavers, later on if u split vs him, before commiting to kill him, bait his ulti before going, cause he can kite pretty well with it.
WHO IS THIS?
Any set up you want, dorian shield start, how did you get up here gurl? Its a very simple match up, chill in the first few levels, post level 4 if she over extends beat her up, if u run ghost u can run her down very easily, she doesn't have mobilty beside a tiny dash and her ulti, the more the game goes, the harder times she have against you, she cant hold you 1v1 even under her turret by the mid game.
Scaling set up with dorian shield, the biggest mistake ever that a kassadin can do is laning against you, its unfun, horrible, unlanable match up for kass, all what u should do is shoving him early "by the second wave" let the wave bounce back, and freeze it on him next to your turret, thats all, he cant even step up for the wave, he is screwed, thats how it goes till he gets level 16, if he somehow reaches that point after all the beating he got early, he can then match you in the 1v1 very well, outside of that, this lane is F R E E.
Scaling set up, some dumb singed players tend to Q in the first wave and shove it quickly, if they doesnt run ignite, and you are running ghost, look for an all in if he extends alot and tries to rush level 2, just get fury and kill him, outside of that you mostly look for him to waste his flip, his sticky thing, and over extend to go for an all in, short trades are mostly even cause of how dumb this champion is, and kinda favours him, if he rushes tabies just chill and farm, he gets really annoying with his ulti cause of the pure states it gives him, mostly its a farm lane unless he messed up badly, later on you can run him down no problem cause you will be super sticky, you can even bait his ulti and leave him, without his ulti, he is not even a champion.
Scaling set up, long sword start, he will bully you early with how strong his early game is, u mostly looks to farm pre 6, you run ignite in this match up and you wants him to shove you in all the time pre 6, you can bait him into Qing you with the wave to make shoving you easier task, cause he can run you down if you over extend, post 6 you start to outscale super hard cause of your ulti, with ignite and by staying even with him, you can kill him no problem, just survive the early game.
Survival kit, dorian sheild, a free lane, shaco just looks to poke poke poke his laner till he can push them out, but poking you out? Huh, please. U mostly can't kill him, but you can keep shoving him in, it does win you the lane hard cause he sttuggles big time farming under his turret, so take that and abuse it vs him, free lane no matter what he does.
Survival/mixed set up, dorian sheild, he has a good poke, but early on he is sooooo damn weak, abuse that, you can shove him in, let the wave bounce, freeze it, he can't do much about that, you can side step his stun thingie when you trade/all in him, if you take scaling set up you can run ignite, cause u have nimbus to help you in all in's, if u take other set ups, take ghost, easier time running him down post 6, he just cant deal with you 1v1, in mid to late, just run him down if he is away from turret, mercs are nice buy in this match up if his team has good cc.
scaling set up with dorain shield start, she was giga broken on release, but now? she still broken, but she can't handle you in lane very well, her damage is pretty strong, but your sustain in trades/hp is way too much for her to handle, u can rush level 2 and take a harash trade into her, as her level 1 is pretty weak, you can out sustain her mana pool too, in the mid to late, her one shoot can be annoying, buying a single armor item can prevent that, her ulti is pretty strong too, especially in team fights, to avoid fighting her in jungle, as she can pull out so very strong ulties, an easy match up for trynda if he doesn't get behind.
Any set up you like, dorian shield start, she is a simple champion, very predictable, she looks for trades by bulling you with her range, but her range is pretty low early game, her only escape tool is her jump, which is a high mana cost and long CD, you can just get some fury, and keep high hp, and look to spin into her, she will jump away, lossing mana, hp, and keeping her away from the wave, look for trades when you get lvl 3 or 4, an easy matchup, you run her down for the rest of the game, she mostly can't deal with you in a 1v1.
Mixed/scaling set up, cloth 4 poition start, an ugly laning phase, like his face, as most adc, range abusers, PTA works really well with this guy its busted, you need to farm for as little damage as possible, give up farm if it costs too much hp, if the enemy jungler is agro ex. Elise, lee. Care for being dove, ward behind you and try to out play or something, this lane is pretty hard but if you get out of lane being at least even in XP you good to go, running this guy down will be easy with ghost, he will stand no chance once you have 40% cdr, just survive early then you good to go.
Survival set up, with dorian shield start "replace second wind with demolish", set has a very strong trades if it is longer than 3 seconds trade, His W makes trades turn horrible really quickly, so what we need to do is only trade very short trades by few AA and spin away, if you get in his pull range, most of setts will pull you in and start a trade, its okay, just hit him once or twice then spin away, he over all has a stronger first levels than you, so mostly you look to farm till you get tiamat, then you can trade harashly into him, keep spamming your Q unless you have fury and u looking to trade, keep your hp high so if he pulls you while u r spinning away from him, he won't kill you/force your ulti by that, sett can go normal build "phage or tiamat" or he will go full armor and try to stone wall the lane, if so, just shove in and ignore him and get a demolish on his turret and go away, later on in the game u can run him down if u are ahead, if not check his items, if he has too much armor, you can ignore him and shove, or take short trades to set him up for a kill, dodging his W is useful too, over all he is sticky and has no escapes, so all ins on him is all about out damaging his W shield and killing him quickly.
Scaling set up with long sword start, He is abusable early, trades are all about dodging/waiting him to waste his E "thing he throws in a line" cause it sturns you, gives him extra damage and attack speed plus slows you, so dodge it or wait him to waste it before trading, careful post 6, if you fight around his turret he can pull a E R E combo to lock you down under his turret, tenacity/mercs are very recommanded especially if his team is cc heavy too, it is a farm match up post level 7 if you didnt get a good lead, a good way to play this lane is by freezing the wave cause he has a hard time breaking freeze if you do it on him, if you split vs him later just shove waves, its not worth to chase him down as he has alot of crowd control to work with.
Scaling set up, dorian shield/long sword start, talon has a very good all in level 2 but his level 1 is kinda not the strongest, you should look out for his burst cause he will try to take his chance to stack his passive 3 times, ignite you, and burst you down if he could find the chance, but he is kinda mana hungry early on, so if you can dodge his W, or out heal his poke, you will be good to go and out sustain him, trades are easy with talon if he uses his Q or W to farm, look to spin and trade into him if you high health/fury, rush tiamat so you can harras him even better, if you find him annoying you with his burst, you can buy a thornmail as 3th item, that way talon won't be able ever to 1v1 you for the rest of the game.
Scaling set up, long sword start, this match up could be super easy, or could be even, all up to the kled and how good he is, if he keeps landing Q's, trading well into you and playing around his W, the lane could turn for his favour, his Q has a 60% healing debuff if it pulls you, for some godly unknown reason, so u need to hold on your Q till the 5 seconds of debuff ends, how y want this lane to go is by trading level one with some fury if he misses his Q or uses it to farm, and u play around his W "empowered 4 attacks", what a good kled looks to do is hold on his W till he demounts, then level it up so he mounts over again, you dont want to get cheesed this way, so watch out for that by keeping track if his W and if he leveled it up or not yet, if u want to set up a kill on kled, try to get him to a point where you need to auto/spin damage is enough to dismount him, so by the time, you will get ur lethal tempo attack speed going on plus ignite, so u burst him, do not ignite him while he still in mount form, mid to late game you kinda still even, who ever is ahead will dominate the other one, still, play around his W.
Lane survival, dorian shield, he is all about his funky outplays, he will look to try poking u with Q and brursting you with his full combo, you are pretty strong with ur base states and all the healing u get from your set up, shove the first two waves in and let the wave bounce back to you, and hold a freeze, there is little to nothing he can do to break it, if he walks up to melee the minions just kill his ass, u win hard if u wave control well, in the mid to late, he can one shot you, so getting one armor item is recommanded to shut him down and stop letting him trading ultimates cause his will be on a shorter cooldown, gotta outplay him with the shadows too tho, best of luck on that.
Lane survival, l have no fucking idea what he doesn't, broken as shit, especially the random root plus the slashing thing that makes him auto attack WHILE moving away, which is completely balanced don't mind me.
Scaling/mixed set up, He is kinda weak nowdays, he doesn't have the poke or the burst to deal with you, u outsustain him, out trade him if u extend it, and scales better than him, if you want to trade, don't spin into him, walk and AA him, cause if u spin he will knock u up and walk away like gentleman, he has a punchy AA passive so try to avoid it and don't get poked by it, later on if he stacks hella armor just shove him and ignore him by rotating to ur team and farming jungle camps.
Lane survival, it's.... such a boring match up, thank god they gutted her solo laning, she is "balanced" in such an annoying way, her kit screams "you can't all in me", she has a shield which is a nutty speed up, she has a root which could be a LONGER root and heals for god sake 40%+ missing hp which blows my god damn mind, and she is ranged with a good Q poke and rushies tank/CDR to make it impossible to solo kill her before 5 items, very annoying, if you don't get a kill before her first or second back, buy a tiamat and wipe the map clean from anything that is farmable.
Scaling set up, need more games to see about him, but he is clearly an easy matchup.
Scaling set up, his early damage is pretty cool but it is not enough to deal with you, as usual with every tank, bully them early and beat them up, he rushies armor and becomes annoying to deal with, try to start trades with AA rather than spin cause he can Q combo you if u waste spin, careful from buff cheese too, they love that shit for some reason, or the mid bush top Q cheese, he has good burst and CC chain poat 6 so watch out for that, in mid game when he becomes unkillable for few minutes just shove and ignore.
Champion Build Guide
You can learn his basics easily but its pretty hard to master him and to know his macros well, he is one the "if not the" hardest snowballers and strongest split pushers in the game, if he gets ahead, there is really not much you can do beside spamming for your teammates to help you, cause you will be ran down/dove at any point if you over extend or go low on hp.
He is a top tier diver cause of his ultimate , he scales hard and by the mid game he spikes really hard when he gets 2 crit full items Infinity Edge Essence Reaver
If you know your limits as u will surprise your enemies with the damage you do, thanks for which gives free AD the lower you are and which does give u extra vs champions when u are low in hp.
Next step is knowing your match ups, and knowing how much respect you should give your opponent "if any" like respecting a and not messing around him too much cause he can be really punishing, while not giving some other opponents any respect in lane like cause they have no kill pressure on you what so ever, you can find every match up you want to learn about in threats section, explained with details.
You NEED to know how to freeze/wave control as Tryndamere cause your business is running them down, which needs to keep your enemy away from there turret, which means u need to keep the wave next to your own turret, but how? that's by wave control... you can learn that by watching some youtube videos, I it is not possible for me to make my own videos right now ^^ so hope you understand that.
Tryndamere already has an upper hand in most match ups in the early game just cause of his base states, so building up your lead can be something possible more often, it's up for you to play the way you want, aggressive or passive, when you pick up Tryndamere you mostly look to play safe, know your champion then start to test limits, go aggressive on your enemies.
Also, tips about diving will help you out cause you are a Tryndamere and diving your enemies is something you do on daily bases, you can dive your enemies with different set ups, for example...
- Setting up slow pushes, getting level 6 first and diving your opponent.
- Getting them low enough to the point that you can afford a dive with what sources you have.
- Calling the jungler for a dive, and you can lead by hitting your enemy *depending on the jungler that you have* because you have Undying Rage which is simply the BEST diving tool that ever exists.
At this point of the game, usually you can run down a lot of champions straight up, for example Ashe Draven Olaf Pantheon Yasuo if they split against you while being away from there turret, even if they are kinda close for there turret you still can 100-0 them easily cause they are squishy.
on the other hand, some champions you never want to split against them, for example Akali Vayne those champion has self peeling or has a very overloaded kits that counters you and makes you useless in 1v1ing them.
Macro plays comes in handy especially in the mid game, for example, baron nashor is up, you want to split botlane so you can draw pressure towards you while your team slowly gets baron control while the enemy team are trying to stop you, so they can get picks or get baron for free without the enemy team being able to contest it.
Also splitting deep into enemy side of the map without your team drawing pressure/playing around an objective like cloud drake or siege an enemy turret, that could be very dangerous, cause the enemy team could collapse on you and pull a 1v3 and kill you while your team is not in a position to get anything else done in return for the kill that the enemies got on you.
Map awareness is very important as a split pusher, cause you need to know where are the enemies, and who is a threat on you and could kill you if you get collapsed on by, for example, if they enemy team has a Sion Master Yi Cassiopeia Draven Nami, and you see the map, Sion and Nami are missing, but you could keep on splitting, as both of them can't stop you at all, you can tank them a bit, and spin over a wall to disengage from them, in the better cases you can pull a kill on Nami, but if you check your map while splitting and you see that Cassiopeia and Sion and missing, you need to watch out, cause if they surprise you they can CC lock you down, and kill you easily, it's all about knowing who is missing, and who is the threat you to to fight.
Tryndamere spikes really well with his 2 items power spike, which is Essence Reaver and Infinity Edge, cause it grants you next to 100% crit chance.
Your Battle Fury gives you 0.35% crit chance per fury, when it reaches 100, it gives 35% in total, that's all level 1, it scales on level 6, 11, 16, giving you extra 5% crit on every scaling level, so a full Battle Fury bar at level 16 gives you 50% free crit chance
An important thing to add is if the enemy team has a very strong engage like Malphite you must keep very close eye on your team and keep back pinging them if there is no one stopping you on the split push or if you still didn't draw pressure yet, it could loss the whole game if your team gets engaged on and loss a 4v5.
If you sit on too much gold while being full on items, you can look to buy Guardian Angel cause of how useful the passive it gives is, when you die, just sell it and buy something else, nothing much to say about the late game, its like mid game but be more close to your team over all.
While snowballing a match up, you need to know few things
- Can you dive your enemy safely and without risk dying.
- Where is the enemy jungler position at the moment you are taking your decision
- Is it possible to help your mid laner by the lead you have
- Is rift herald up
Playing from behind
You are a strong champion, but sometimes it is rough, u get camped, u mess up, you tilt for a second and u threw your lane, and now you are forced to play from behind, the first thing to do if you know that you are going to be behind is buying a Tiamat.
It is a super good item when you need to farm as quick as possible and get back in the game, what you need to do to get back in the game quickly:
- you can farm while splitting.
- take your jungle camps if your jungler is on the other side of the map.
- take the enemy jungle camps if possible.
- If you have life steal, and you are low on health, you should auto attack the wave/camp rather than spinning, cause you will build more Battle Fury and heal more.
- Krugs camp are very easy to do if you have Tiamat, so consider doing it when you are going back to lane while the wave is pushing for you for example.
- Spinning Slash and Flash combo can be a good way to execute your enemies, abuse it when you can.
- If you want to carry your team when you are ahead, improve that mid-game macro, and get a good decision making, most teams loss cause they have no good leader who can give them the right decisions and calls for them, and no one is better than that fed Tryndamere who can pull 3 people just to stop his split push and let his team take free baron / cloud drake to give calls for his team.
- PRESSURE PRESSURE PRESSURE whenever you are ahead, after taking the enemy toplaner turret, DO NOT waste time in your comfort zone, go in your enemy jungle, take camps, keep pushing waves/pressuring turret, you need to step it up so your team can stay safe/take objectives, keep pushing yourself ahead always by gold/XP whenever it is possible, snowballing is KEY .
- If you are in a hard lane like Renekton and you can't do anything to kill your laner, you can rush Tiamat and take waves quickly, and go find something else to do on the map while the next wave is approaching.
- In the very close early fights, you can use your Bloodlust when you are one AA from dying to give you one extra AA to survive , it could be the difference between getting first blood or first blooded.
- If you just picked up Tryndamere and u got no clue about him, start every match up with a Doran's Shield so u can take bad trades and let it pass, so u can slowly know and start feeling your champion.
