Threats & Synergies
Blitzcrank is a pain to deal with since he makes your passive, afk in a bush poke and hide playstyle sort of impossible to do since he can just Q you and pull you out. Instead I would highly suggest playing it more safe by waiting for him to hook and then walking out of the bush, whilst never staying when the wave is pushed. Push with the wave. He is very much a RED threat but that depends on if he is a GOD-Blitz
He is kind of like Blitzcrank but easiest to deal with since he comes to you. Same deal really, juke, poke & R your feet if you think he is going to hook all in you. He is very fast if he is a good Thresh to that I would suggest the same strat as Blitzcrank. Push with the wave never sit in the bush for too long.
Extremely easy to poke down and deny farm for his ADC, just sidestep the stun proc.
Can pretty much go bad, if you use the bush too much to poke since it's right by the wall..
Really really annoying but pretty easy to avoid the tornado just run out of the bush. However he slow + shield + healing and CC is very painful to deal with. I usually perma ban her.
This matchup once again can go either way, she can not unstealth you in the bush. She can cling to you and use her skills where she thinks you are but again you can just walk around to avoid it and then W away if you feel the need to once all her hard CC is expended. Remember your blind counters her stuns.
Try to keep yourself positioned facing away from the wall if they try to all in you and your ADC, Vayne will stun you if you get knocked back into a wall or structure. However if you are in a bush and their support can not get to you in time, your blind will blind her autos after the stun allowing you to go stealth mid-fight.
The poke from her W is very annoying especially when you just want to safely harass her from the edge of your bush, simply go back and forth from each end to avoid it then go in for the poke.
You can step on her bulbs that get thrown out into the bushes. She is weak so long as you avoid that CC and keep a hard poke on her.
He has gap closing abilities and CC. Ignore him, focus on their ADC when he dives you. You won't outrun him.
His STUN is what makes laning and rushing out of the bush difficult, stay in the bush he can't unstealth you with a stun.
Basic auto-attacker just watch out for her chompers, otherwise you can't run and hide in your bush like a coward.
If her support is supporting her well, and shes getting the Q bounces off on you or your ADC you will have a very bad time. That being said, you can't really do much if your ADC does nothing but line up perfect Q bounces for her. Past level 6 try to not utilize the bush harass, she can 100% 0 if she ults.
Harass her after she uses her Q she can do nothing to you in the bush unless you unstealth.
Kogmaw is a hard to deal with champion for a few reasons, he can unstealth you. He has a very large range and is easy to get support from his support due to him having such a long range and damage. He is not chosen a lot though. So you shouldn't have a problem dealing with him.
Usually the majority of lulu players will be very very squishy if possible kill her first, or just harass her as your main traget as her shields and speed are extremely annoying to deal with.
Ignore the ADC, poke soraka down hard avoid her healing circle Q by staying in the bush and dodging. It is pointless to focus the ADC cause she will just heal him back to full the main target has to be her. Build Morello to deal with her heals or rush executioners calling early game.
I would highly recommend banning this champion, she has everything an ADC needs, Sustain+Bounce damage, Movement speed, CC team fight CC. It sucks an regardless of if she is squishy she will deny your ability to force them out of lane. She can not unstealth you with her CC unless it's her ULT.
She can unstealth you for the entire enemy team which is your main form of harass he burst is also hard to deal with since BLIND does nothing for your defensive side.
It's kind of hard to dodge his W but pretty easy to avoid the stun, keep a aggressive poke on him from the bushes, but do not over extend in the bush (sometime I do constantly) run if they get a 3 man on you since he can just bush you down eventually in stealth.
The funny thing with Alistar is his "Trample" skill does not affect your ability to go stealth. So long as he doesn't knock you up, knock you back, or auto attack you. So usually you kite him into the bush, blind him after he hard CCs and Tramples then just stand still, you will stealth if it's just him.
Nothing really to add, avoid the cleaver it's pretty self explanatory. He doesn't really offer support, just ranged poke and slow while running you down like a maniac.
Kayles usually grab Ardent and focus healing over damage, so you know the deal. Morello or Executioners. The slow is annoying you could maybe take Phase Shift for that. If you find it is a problem.
She is very weak but do not let that cause you to become cocky. She hurts especially once she gets Ludens and passes level 6. Same deal with any matchup, avoid the CC and skill shots from the bush harass by walking out, then poke.
Okay, this is a hard matchup due to his ability to engage and disengage immediately if he goes electrocute it's basically free damage to you followed up by his ADC which usually ends up being a very quick trade, in which you lose. Save your W and try to bait out the CC then poke him down hiding back into stealth.
Most ezreal players will keep spamming their Q into the bush often times they land every Q while other times they miss them all, so it's a relatively 50/50 matchup. A quick Q and E then back off if usually good enough to get him behind in CS massively.
She has long range, CC traps which can often be overlooked until it's too late, but she is very simple to deal with, in honesty it usually is based on who is supporting them. Hard engage is usually a passive lane for Teemo.
This guy is an annoying little shit. Doesn't matter if you are stealth in the bush his Q will bounce off of you, giving away your position allowing him to just all in you after hitting 6. He is however extremely squishy so I would coordinate being super aggressive with your ADC.
Be aggressive early game because once they reach 6, they will be extremely difficult to deal with, due to the Zilean R.
It's like if Thresh, Urgod, Kaisa and Nocturne all got together and had an orgy creating pyke in the process, hes not hard, he just has a lot of CC / gap close in his kit. The real problem comes with his late game. He is very annoying to deal with if he is a good Pyke. You could ban him but you just need to be good at avoiding his gap close stun CC.
He is a highly Auto Reliant champion but your blinds don't do very much since he can just get QSS or he can just E you making the blinds duration less for you to go in for the poke. Ninja Tabis is a must.
He is a monster right now. He can get all 3 hits off on you and dash away in seconds before you can get your blind off on him. I would suggest banning him because it is just too hard to deal with him. Especially with a hard CC support.
Jhin has been since the start of Season 8 one of the BEST ADCs to lane with. He has range, he has damage and he has CC. A good Jhin Teemo combo is unstoppable with Deadly Flourish.
A little off meta but this Duo bot lane is pretty hecking strong when played into the right enemies and played well by the duo. Great for engaging onto a matchup like Caitlyn x Janna.
Very long range, great synergy with her traps and your shrooms, especially if the enemies are not AP and just melee tanks like Braum / Leona, allowing you to harass with little effort from the bushes standing around the traps.
It really all depends on this little guy. A TYLER 1 draven is the best thing you could ask for. A passive Draven who is going for Adoration stacks is very bad, hes suppose to be AGGRO he is one of the best for that. His synergy is amazing when played right, horrible when played passively.
I would say the same as Draven, if the are not utilizing switcharoo, it's going to be a cluster fuck of a bad duo. Along with utilizing good Chompers. Be it to help you escape of catch someone off guard/escaping.
Very good range poke and an overall good ADC however, if they are not as stated before being aggressive and looking for poke opportunities you're not really going to get much accomplished.
Nothing really special about Vayne until the mid/late game, she doesn't really dominate the laning phase early on and gets out poked by pretty much everyone else unless she has a good CC support. Outside of the laning phase shes pretty godlike when played right.
Having no escape or mobility and being as basic as a auto attacking champion can be, it's safe to say she isn't the best to work with as a Teemo Support. The laning phase can be annoying, Late game stuns is about all shes useful for if shes not being one shot.
Very strong ADC in the sense of having everything she needs. Gap Close, Mobility, Range, Burst. The laning phase can go either way depending on the matchup. It's better to try and give her the kills, due to it being very hard for the enemies to stop her from snowballing.
Double poison sounds great but it's pretty lackluster, you both stealth and have the element of surprise but are very prone to hard CC and getting caught out.
A decent synergy, range, harass, CC, Immunity. It's a good thing for an ADC to have these while you dish out the DoT and pressure.
Threats & Synergies
His boomerang is pretty noticeable dodge it then go in for a few pokes. If he is about to transform hop onto you, it's pretty common nature to avoid his rock throw and get in your minions while poking him down.
Olaf can be a pain in the ass, this is where experience in kiting and juking your position come into play so that you can just avoid his axe toss all together. Blinding him when he charges you, isn't effective since he can just hit through it with the lightning strike. Build movement speed and kite well, poke a lot.
Alright so a lot of people say Riven is hard... Shes not... Bait out her 3rd dash knockup at the very moment of impact hit her with your Q, this will negate all of her damage and then kite her down. Because most Riven players will immediately dash away after the stun wears off. BUILD NINJA for heck sakes.
Wukong has a very hard all in, rush ninja tabis, and shroom yourself and hide in your minions as to prepare yourself to kite out of his gap close ult.
Besides his passive healing from abilities, hes pretty cheese to go against. You can build a Gunblade and easily take him out. But overall anything works well. Wit's end is a very good start for him and any AP champion.
Take Phase Rush, why? He gives you 95% Movement Speed debuff once wither is maxed. Buy swifties and you're going to deny him every single time he ULT-Flashes ontop of you. You nee donly to hit a shroom, auto, blind to remove the debuff and gain 100% movement speed immunity and a burst of speed with W.
He hurts, even if you do melt him down to 20% he can still turn around and knockup ult you simply because screw Jarvan. His CS tends to be always higher due to better wave clear.
Pantheon has been a thorn in peoples sides for many years, an easy way to deal with him is simple, take the GRASP build and start corrupt potion with maxed Q. In a matchup where everyone is AD or 4 of them are, I tend to rush frozen heart. It's just my personal preference as I like to be focused and wasted time on (peeling) for the team.
Stay behind your minions to avoid his hook, but constantly harass him you should be getting FB on this guy easily. If he is really a problem for you AP wise, rush BORK and then your problems will no longer be problems.
Start with Bone Plating & Second Wind + Dorans Shield. Go hard, and I mean extremely agressive, rush executioners calling and sell it late game for morellonomicon. You will out heal and out damage him.
You will absolutely crush this matchup. FIRST item is Morellos, unless you pop off early, she is played through her passive VITAL POINT which can be reset by walking out of range from her, keep the VITAL POINT BEHIND you and reset it when it goes in front.
All you have to do is rush Frozen Heart or Zhonya anything that gives you some armor you don't have to but I do since I have problems with him, that's it. He isn't hard he just has gap close, and disengage so stand out of your minion wave.
If he goes in for a spin to heal, run towards him and hug him, to prevent it and also not take damage.
It is a simple matchup, in all honesty. If you know how to avoid skill shots, especially his level 6 ULT, build normally, however if you want to secure lane dominance rush Frozen Heart or Frozen Gauntlet. The problem people have is they just take hits. Max your Q first to level 3 giving you a massive advantage over his rapid fire shotgun legs.
Now that she has had some time to calm down with a few fixes here and there, she is really easy to take on. Avoid her stun even if she hits and lands the stun you should have no problem taking her on.
One of the easiest matchups. You completely counter this AA reliant champion. If he goes in on you drop a shroom to your feet then blind and kite once he runs off chase with W, you shouldn't lose lane to this guy even if he build AP because AP Tryn is completely garbage just build Morellos into him before late game spikes his Q up.
People don't seem to play much of renekton as of season 8, but hes a one of the BEST champions to shit on, be he diving you with his stun which you can blind you will decimate him. Just save the blind for the double dash.
Ow... New akali, is everything Teemo can not deal with, Gap close and disengage. Ban as usual for any new champ / updated champ.
The deal with Kled is it is easy to win lane with him and be useful for a Team fi
