Threats & Synergies
Especially in low elo udyr can be very dangerous to lee sin. Don't fight him 1v1 if he start chasing you just kick him away.
Kha'Zix counters Lee Sin with his kit after level 6. The reason is that if Kha catches you in jungle he can deal you his whole combo and the R before you are available to realistically react and R him away. Buy Armor!
Just ban him and all good.
Try not to let him get free hits on you since it will allow him to transform a lot earlier in the game. When farming out against a Kayn, it's best not to do pointless trades or fights with him. As long as you dodge his W, his stickiness is greatly reduced. Pay attention to walls so you can spot his marker and be ready to Flash the W if needed. Without his transformation, Kayn is weak in fights. Look to duel him - especially if his ult is down. Kayn's early game dueling and ganks are quite weak. You can easily turn on him by dodging his W - it's his major source of damage and CC in the early game.
At level 3 she can trade with you if she has a point in each skill, be weary of her burnout as it has a long duration, try to kill her at her second buff, you can check where she started by looking at how late the enmy botlane came in. Without burnout she is an easy kill or flash atleast. However in the current met she is insanely strong so consider banning her as she has very good item and rune synergy
Kindred relies on getting marks to scale well. Her early clear is slow and if she doesn't kite well, she can get somewhat low. Use this knowledge to contest her marks early - you should either arrive before her, or beat her 1v1 after she takes a few hits from the camp due to the HP advantage. If your team is ahead on the side of the map that her mark spawns, ping it and go contest it. By doing so, you can slow down her ability to scale while you try to farm up. Don't bother to deny her marks when you're behind and be very careful whenever she chooses to mark you. It's best to avoid fighting her and instead focus the opposite side of the map to reduce her chances of scaling off of you. Without her ultimate, (160 second CD), she's very easily killed in a counter gank or during a jungle invade. Try camping around a mark so you can kill her as she shows whenever her ultimate is down.
Before level 6, Nocturne has a decent 1v1 but is poor at chasing enemies down and securing camps. Abuse him by heavily invading his jungle early. Try starting the same camp as him and then take his next buff with Smite. Aim to be the mountain he has to climb to get level 6! Try keeping track of his ultimate CD for your team. He becomes lackluster late game, so as long as you track his major ganking tool for your team, you can farm away and outscale him. Nocturne will be looking to gank or dive lanes with his ult. Hanging around with low health while Nocturne is in game is bound to make you a target, so try to use this as bait when possible. Once he uses it, he cannot cancel halfway through and will be stuck on whoever he goes on with no escape. When behind, Nocturne isn't great at defending himself in the jungle due to his lack of execute for camps, and a lack of mobility. Whenever he has his Flash down look to duel him. If you manage to dodge his Q, or force him to fight away from the trail, he will do even less damage.
Get a Randuin's and you will ruin his life, you should kill him until ge gets 4 items. If he is building [Feral Flare] you will never kill him late but early he is also quite strong with his perma slow and true damage. Take note that his passive Berserker Rage makes him stronger the lower he gets, as does his W Vicious Strikes. Try to counter jg him.
Master Yi has no real dueling power when his ult is on cooldown (85 seconds). If you ever see a Master Yi without it, do not waver, go kill him because it is also his major form of escape. Masteri Yi looks to farm up and scale on items - he's very weak until he completes his jungle item. Look to fight him 1v1 in his own jungle and bully him off of camps whenever possible to slow his scaling. Do not try to 1v1 a Master Yi when behind. Instead, try to focus him down with teammates since he doesn't build tanky early in the game. Farming out against a Yi is very dangerous, but can be possible since his invading isn't too threatening. If he does decide to do so, don't get baited by his Meditate into overstaying - his team is likely coming. Double-check the minimap whenever he uses the ability, it has a 35 second CD so he can only use it once per fight.
Highest winrate almost 60% this guy. WHY? Quill coat can answer, it gives him armor and he scales very well with armor, Black Cleaver and Last whisper should be bought in this matchup, if you get a trundle to go toplane in your team he can try steal his resistances. Kill him early at his camps as he will always be low due to his painfully slow clear times before getting quill coat. Late game kick him behind your team or try to stop him from taunting your carries, if you are behind then build tank. Try to kick him out of the team if he has sunfire cape and tremors acitve.
He's kind of a nightmare to deal with catch him with your q when he ults to follow him in but you won't get knocked up. Don't bother fighting this guy too much cc and tankiness to kill steal his camps his clears are slow.
Should be easy, you can reveal him with your e and when he wants to engage ult him out of your team when he starts ulting, this will make him useless, also if he uses his e defensivle try to follow with your q or w. Wards are key in this matchup.
Before he gets stacking he is easy and has no mobility however his silence is a pisstake and his kncokup is very annoying, try to land your q on him before he knocks you up so you can follow up immediatly. Also keep tabs on his ult and how big he is along with what hes building.
Counter jungle him early, with his high cooldowns and low mobility stealing this guys buffs is so easy, if you meet him in the jungle before level 9 you should always kill him no matter what. As soon as you break through his shield he has lost 90% of his power and follow his Dredge line with your resonating strike. Get a banshees.
This matchup has changed since she got nerfed and her hookshot doesn't stun monsters anymore. This means not only do the monsters not get stunned but she also doesn't get the attack speed to clear the camps. It is near impossible to clear the jungle with Camille and she will always be low in her jungle which is why she is very predictable. She will spend all her time ganking lanes. So you can either try invade her or counter gank her. If she doesn't get ahead or into lategame relatively even you will win most games. the only time she is an issue is if she manages to find you in the jungle and hit you with hookshot. Even then you still stand a chance to beat her. Dodge the hookshot and you win.
Best combo for lee sin.
