Threats & Synergies
Vayne is bad early as are you and kog can carry harder late game than a vayne for sure. It's a free farm lane.
Sivir Can't really spell shield your Most important weapon which is your autos.
Bard is bard.
Kalista is annoying but her early game damage isnt that swell anymore plus i doubt you'll even see her.
Urgot does have damage reduction plus has a lot of poke. He runs outta mana way to fast so until his tear its a free lane.
Ashe is a late game carry as well She's gonna farm and poke with W just chill in the laning phase and dont be too hasty when she hits level 6.
Jinx isnt that swell in the early game, what she's good at is pushing and if you're always being pushed in She'll try to punish you for going to Cs with either a rocket Q and or and W.
Miss fortune hurts. You can win against her in lane. But miss fortune Q is disgusting with the killing a minion crit. Just watch out for that And you should be good.
Lucian is strong. He's a strong laner And you should fear him. If he has any sense of what to do he can snowball off your mistakes. It is impeccable for you not to die. You're gonna lose tower though. You are gonna outscale him though. Just survive and you can do wonders.
corki is meh his early game isnt impressive its just when he gets his sheen phage or even triforce you should be worried about since thats just a huge bump up for him.
Dravens Q ax damage is stupid early game. But draven needs kills. Dont die and let your team know when he's 6 and You'll be good.
ezreal is skill shot reliant. If he cant land a skill shot He's not gonna be that usefull.
Caits early damage With W headshot is upwards of 200 damage at level 2 which is almost 50% of a lot of adcs health at level 2. just be careful, let her play the lane out and dont let her get a huge lead.
Tristana is very similar to jinxs. other than she's gonna purposefully get the tower to leave laning phase since its not really her strongest part in the game.
varus is really skill shot reliant. dodge His Qs, Es, and ults and he's useless.
jhin is strong atm I do not think kog will stand against him pre level 9 since level 9 is when he has a huge range advantage. jhins a strong laner that punishes freely. Ask for a janna or a sona to keep you genuinely healthy against him
If you kill him first You're gonna be good, if he kills you first you're gonna have a problem setup pinks, and keep vision on him.
zyras dirty, She's annoying and very strong for no AP unless you're 4-6 items in try to avoid her at all cost.
Alistar is alistar. He's gonna be a wall but has trouble against someone like leo and is kited pretty easily.
Janna is annoying and a huge cockblock, but her herself isnt a threat really
Brand support isnt a support. its a lie. And he has no problem butt pounding you until you're 0-9
braum is okay but solely relys on his ADC to be good for him to be effective.
You're not gonna move at level 6. She cant 1v1 you though. so shes not gonna be higher.
Lulu is to protect the adc much like janna. only difference is shes annoying and her base damage is stupid.
one blitz hook death is pretty much gonna tilt you beyond belief. as long as you can dodge his Q you're not gonna really have trouble with him.
zilean bombs and E is annoying but theyre manageable. You can avoid his bombs. His ult is cancer but you dont have to kill the victim while thats active.
taric is strong and is an annoyance. just try to avoid the stuns and read his moves whether he wants to tower dive or not.
Karma's poke is dumb as long as you avoid the poke. you're fine.
Thresh hook is slow and will mostly be a surprise kinda hook. if you can have vision of him while he's winding up and can dodge it you should be fine.
Vel is no fun to play against. He's annoying, his skill shots are dodgeable, but he still has a shit ton of damage if he land them.
Free farm lane.
Sona has everything from damage, cc, heals, engage, etc. She's annoying if you build a qss though she's gonna be not as strong though.
