Threats & Synergies
Annie is a very hard matchup, because she can stun you / bring you down. You are squishy early and she is threatening her stun all the time.
Can abuse the ability that you jump back to your ADC to shield them very hard.
Easy matchup, because you can heal.
Lulu provides a little more support for her ADC, but you provide more CC. Pretty even matchup
Bard matchup is bad in the first 2 levels. His LVL 1 is very strong so you have to be careful. Also jumping to your teammate might trigger his stun.
Easy you can just outheal when getting grabbed and recover in lane. Sometimes you even want to be hooked to pull off a good ult.
Matchup on the harder side of things, because her CC can stop you from dashing.
If he is a good thresh, he can interrupt you mid W, canceling your CC out. Annoying to play against.
She counters you because she has a lot of damage in her kit, which is bad for you + your adc. Also can out-sustain you
Cancer lane, but winable
She is pretty strong against you because she can keep poking early, where your weakness is.
when he stacks his passive on you just jump out
Her shields cooldown is higher than your W, so wait for it to run out to engage.
Annoying lane, she can stop you from going in and hold you down
Alistar can kick you out and offers heavy CC. Hard to get around the cow.
I usually play mid/sup as my primary roles, but learned to do every role in the past.
Highest rank I have achieved is Diamond 3 in season 4. I was Diamond in season 5, but i didn't bother playing a lot in season 6 + 7 (well 7 not over yet). In season 6 i was Plat 2 in the end and in season 7 I am currently at gold 1 (with 8 games played ;))
So why trust me and my guide with this? While i don't play a lot of ranked currently, i do plan to pick it up again. I do have years of experience in playing league and have a wide knowledge of game data. Also i like to analyze things, make up calculations which gives me a lead over everyone else.
Also going for Locket later in the game this applies the passive from Ardent to EVERYONE.
Plus windspeaker, maxing shields first, is just going to be a gigantic help in teamfights. A well placed Redemption might be comparable strong or even a little bit stronger, but is not as reliable.
Caitlyn - her strong early game makes up for your weak one
Kalista - Her ult synergizes VERY good with yours, jump in and charm everyone!
Xayah - Obvious one, you have a longer E range and her W triggers your auto attacks to be very strong
Ashe - She can slow enemies which helps you set up your knockup. Her ult is also great in combination with yours.
Jinx - very nice setup possibility with her traps.
Sivir - Extra movement speed for engages is very nice.
Miss Fortune - Your Ult to keep the enemies in her ult really does a lot in fights. Her slow also helps you setup your W
Jhin - Very potent setup, you can peel for him since he is low mobility. His W works great with you to setup your knockup.
These are the ones i don't think synergize as well:
Tristana - no real setup for you + in a weak state currently.
Kog'Maw - better pick Lulu
