When i fight agains blitzcrank use this 4 Rules: 1-stay behind the minions 2-slow him when he use W 3-run when he is coming which E 4- when he use Q atack blitzcrank and his adc. Remember NEVER don't underestimate Blitzcrank he is danger always no meter what is lv diffrent.
Simple Try to fight him beafor lv 6 Thats is time when you have big chances to kill enemy bot. After he is lv 6 thats when the horror begins and its 3 rule than you need to listen: 1- stay away from your adc far enough to dont let malphite hit you and your adc. 2-never atack enemy bot when he have ult .(only one exception is when malphite is very low so he cant jump in or at least you can kill him fast after he jump) 3-when he miss ult just go atack.
This is most annoying machup she have much shield ,slow ,speed ,heal and her ult. But you can counter/minimaliz effect her ult when lulu use R try to run away and weit until enemy adc will be close to atack then use ult this will give you time to escape or atack back beacose lulu ult will end soon. Also you cant broke shield lulu but you can conter her speed boost and her slow when she use speed booost just use passive E then it will make her speed useless her slow you can conter which E too. You have shorter coldown than lulu make use of it.
A lot of health much dmg big live steal . You must be very careful try to kill enemy adc first befor 6lv after 6lv dont fight him until he use R and after he use it just run and slow him to make him waste ult. Grate way to make swain much easier dodge his E its just all when you dodge his E his Q have to smal range to atack you or its dont make big dmg.
God i hate him stuns big dmg ,pasive only one chanse to kill him is that he have low hp. You need to be careful all the time if he hit you his combo you are dead. Try to make him use all him mana or when he use all spells you can try atack him and remember focus him and kill him fast as you can or he will make your game very hard.
Much dmg long range but very low hp. For sure you need to be careful her range is much problem also she have heal and speed boost which make them unteasable also her stun can be trobule just try to use slow passive onher or use less dmg that make her less danger. With your ult you can atack senna and kill her easliy her low hp make her easy target to kill when she is stun.Try to hit adc too that will be probably his dead too or just he will dont help her.
she can by annoying wich her stun and her black shield can block you slow and ult but good timing and doge q shoude be make her easier. Also try to deal her dmg with you passive Q that will make them use potion or just make them be back.i move her to major beacose if she hit you with q you are dead also she is very annoying.
Good alistar will make your live harder try to not stay behind him and try to use your W when you see he jump this can minimaliz dmg . When he ult dont atack him focus adc you can ult on alistar to stop him when its nesesery.
Bard is good early sup but he need to go take beals try to cach that moment aand atack adc or cach bard and try to kill him.Also small advice just dont stay close to the wall and deastroy his heal.
Be against Braum you need to be careful his shield can block all your atack so if you wont to atack braum you need to weit until he use shield than ,if its lv6 you need to remamber his ult can trun and slow you that make sometimes strike back from enemy.Also never focus on braum he is too tanky to focus on him first.
Iver can be hard to fight because of shield and stuns also his daisy can be trobule but he have low hp and low dmg wichout daisy so your shield with W ist good to proteckt his dmg also ult is very good on him. Ward bush he will sit in there this will give him element of suprise and deal magick dmg from passive make sure to atack enemy adc first iver have no heal so thatch make adc much easier to kill adc.
she is bad pick agains sona your passife whis q destroy her shield. Your ult counder her ult she need to hold R to heal somone that why your ult counter her and you can slow janna or adc that make negative her passive sona just counter her . Only one problem in Janna is her Q this is fast and make stun but if its not suprise you should be able to dodge it.
Karma deal much dmg have stuns and slows also have speed bost and shield. Her Q have short cooldown but rest abillites have long cooldown so make use of it when she use her stun you can atack but still atack which head her slow can by very annoying too so just try to dodge her Q while chase. Afer 6 you have more chances to kill her and adc make sure you will hit her after she use shield or she will ise ult + shield and run away .
You need to doge her abilites or she will stun you also you dont have much hp so if she will you on you E+Q you are in trobule but afer 6 you are just dead all you can do is use W and E to try to run.
Try to always move to make her try to hit you much harder also stay close to the minions she cant stun you if you are behind the minion she can hit with Q 2 targets. She have nothing to run so just slow her and focus on her and she cant run away if you dont let her hit you.
Nami is very anoing heal much often give slows give speed boost.You need to doge her stuns also your W give the shield which to block her dmg .Also she have nothing to run if she miss ability slow her and then she is probably dead if adc will not save her but that will cost often heal or flash.
Same rule as most of the mage you need to move all the time but this time dont Stay behind the minions this will give shit if she hits minost than you she will deal you more dmg she have speed boost and clone her self somtime is hard to catch her also stay away from her when he have ult if she hit you all abilitis you are so just when she use her ult use E and run away then you can try to strike back if she use all abilitis .
Dodge his Q and E then when he use one of them you shude try to atack use E and slow him when he will try to run thath will do him to use W but he is slow so you can show him coming closer then he is easi kill if he use E or just dont use it on time .But you need to be cearfule if he hit you wich q you need to you W and E and pray his adc dont atack you. Also after lv6 you need to be super careful he can kill you adn give him and adc much money but also you can stun him and he will be fast kill.
i dont play much agains rell but try too dodge her W and you will be good then you can atack adc she is slow so she will be have a big problem to proteck her adc until she will have W again.
She is one of the most annoying machup in game but when you punishment her and dodge her abilites you will br good. after lv6 make sure you will be careful if you or you adc have no chance do doge use W to minimize the dmg also try to use e to dodge her ult.
very much healing speed bost and slow. atack soracka use passive on soraka and dodge her q to dont let her heal so much when you make atack use ign or adc beafore 6lv and after 6lv use on soraka also just stun her you need to kill her fast. Alway move to make her hard to jit you with Q.
i never play agains tarick so my advice just dodge his stun and run when he use ult.
Simple dodge his Q and when he use try to atack be careful on his ult and e this can stop you atack and let them run or make them atack you try to not let use enemy adc his lamps when he try too run. If he hit adc with q you can save him but if he hits you you have BIG problem if its after 6lv try to use ult and run but if its beafore lv6 try use w and E also use passive w on adc to make him deal less dmg.
Its just simpe you counter her you can destroy her shield with your possive Q you can reduse her heal with ign you can slow adc counter her speed boost her also you can block her Q but its yummi she is anoyng and very hard to kill also remember to adc he is big meaning to yummi so be cearful.
His Q is very good agains you it deals much dmg and stun you and his ult can make his adc or himself 2st try to run make sure to punish him with your passive and use ult on him to dont let him use his.
Her plants are so annoing try to destroy them before she activate them and her stun can make your live hard but its slow so you can dodge it also she have long coldown so when he use evrything try to atack.
Big dmg very big range you cant do much on him you can kill him just using e and slow him or ult him try to dodge his abilitis and make him use all mana.
Phanteon on early game can be annoying but if you punich him wich passive and make him stay away from you and your adc you can make him much easier to defeat him but you must dodge his q its gonna hurt you alot also his E can make you live hard but just use slow it works even when he use it. atack him when he use W.
Xerath do dmg with passive to him and dodge his abilitis also try to slow him he has notfing to run so if you focus him he cant run away.
He is tanky but very slow also he have seeds that make him anoyin this seeds deal much dmg also he have jump to you and push and stun you need to deal him dmg and run when he try to jump in tou you when he jump adc just use w and e to help him escape.
His huge hitbox make dodge his Q easier and harder in the same time you can hide behind the minions and he have big problem to hit you but also when you are on open space its you need lacky and good movment to dodge it also his ult can by anoying just run away when he use it on you but when he use on adc use W to minimaliz the dmg .
