Threats & Synergies
Very difficult to fight unless you get lead early. Get lifesteal to counter his taunt.
His CC will ruin your day. Wait for him to use it on someone and focus on whoever he is peeling for in team fights.
Early game don't fight him. His passive will keep blocking y our autoes and his burst will melt you early. Play safe and farm up and get to late. You win 11/10 times late.
He is stronger than you but Q his E and when he activates his don't hit him, just start meditating.
He will counter jg you and run away. He is faster than you so don't chase unless you are sure you can kill. If you are ahead then you win. Save alpha for when he starts running away and then hit R. Be patient!
If he fears you in your ultimate then you will run away using your ultimates movement speed. Don't forget!
You win at all stages as long as you save your Q for when she Q away. Timing Q is key!
Don't fight him early or even mid game unless you have a lead. You most likely won't win. But late game he is no threat to you.
Try to Q when she knocks you up. If you are careless and give her kills early then you aren't gonna have a good time the rest of the game.
You win 1v1 but most of the time he will have teammates very close to him and he will ult you to them. Don't fall for it!
His ultimate will hold you back from initiating. If he is good with his ultimate or hasn't used it yet, wait for someone on your team to engage first. Or you will waste your ultimate trying to kill someone only to see them be revived by him.
Very hard to gank after she hits 6. You have 1 dash, she has 3. Unless she commits to your mid laner or unless your mid laner CC her, don't force ganks.
You can't Alpha around her. She will stun you. And she is tanky. You have to be smart about this. Don't risk fights unless ahead.
He will heal back your damage with his ultimate so be careful. You can alpha his stun without any problem.
You are even mid game. You are stronger late game. She is stronger early game. Even if you try to fight her level 2/3 and she is losing, she can run away with her mov speed.
Early game he stomps on you. Late game you stomp on him. Mid game whoever is ahead stomps on the other.
You win. Alpha his 1 combo. or Alpha his ultimate and block the damage.
She will keep morphing you in fights. Watch out for that ability and keep track of it.
Much like Skarner he will CC you and bring you to his team or bring his team to you. Don't get baited!
Alpha his Taunt and you are fine. Other way around if he taunts you into his team.
You can Q a lot of his damage. Save it for his ultimate or Q and you win.
If it's a 1v1 then meditate through his Blind and turn on him with your alpha and ultimate and you win.
Watch for him invading your JG. If he gets fed and is smart he will try to ward and kill you on your blue/red. Ward up!
Much like Fizz, he will invade your JG and try to murder you on your buffs. Ward up!
Riven is very annoying because you will waste your R and Q to try and kill her and she will just run away and make you look stupid. If she commits then you win. Unless she has a major lead on you. Compare items before fighting!
If you get fed then trust me, he will only be targeting you. In cases like this invest in a QSS!
You win starting level 2 to level 18. Lee is an early game jungler but you have Conqueror! Commit to the 1v1 early and you will win. If you block his Q or E dmg, even better!
His passive will ruin a lot of your games. Since his ADC or other auto attack champs will focus you if his passive is on you. Invest in QSS!
He is a scaling champ just like you. You are even early/mid game. Try to alpha his Q dmg or ultimate to tip the scale.
Just use meditate if she ult and block her dmg while healing up and turn on her with Alpha and bully her!
You win most of the times, care for him ulting you and locking you down in team fights! QSS isn't necessary since it's a skill shot and you can Alpha it and his Fear but get it if you can't dodge them. You have to alpha his fear in a 1v1 to guarantee the kill.
Very squishy champion. If you alpha her Q she is 100% dead. If you get hit with Q then meditate and block most of her damage from E and R which will follow after Q.
Early game try to alpha her E or juke it or you might lose. Mid to late game you beat her. Blocking her Q damage with your W is a smart move.
Don't Q unless she uses her E. If she blinds you just hit W. Walk up with R mov speed and hit her, once she uses E and Q simply Q her and you win the auto attack fight from there.
Most tanks are easy matchups. You can block their major skill shots with your alpha and out damage them by a mile. Your true damage makes their tankiness useless.
Like other tank/support junglers you can block his major CC like his ultimate or Q and use your true damage to melt him.
She has good CC and ruin your day with it if you are not careful in team fights but in a 1v1 you always win. Alpha her as she is about to take her E to run away because she will after she realizes she has no chance against you.
Save your R and E until after she finishes her ultimate because you will not be able to kill her before her ult locks you down and you will only waste your major abilities. After her R finishes engage, if she Q you after her R then hit W because it's only a root then hunt her down with alpha and teach her the way of the samurai!
Very easy matchup for you! Invade early and smite his blob passive to kill and get out of his jg before his laners come and join!
Very nice synergy if she has ardent. Her ult slows and knocks people around you and gives you HP. and her shield procs Ardent.
Much like Lulu, very nice synergy!
Another champion that heals/shields you and has a great ultimate for you to cut the enemy in pieces!
His W makes you tanky while he blocks skill shots with his E and knocks up and slows people with his ultimate and lets you beat them up. His passive is the main thing that lets you stun all your enemies!
Let him lock down his mid laner for you and auto them, if they flash away just Q them. Free kills.
His can speed you up so much and with your R no one will escape. Or he can slow them down for you. And his ult will revive you!!
Her shield will proc her ardent and give you AD! if you in a pickle she will ult them away or knock them up giving you time to land more autoes!
Like every heal/shield support. Her ardent and heal will do wonders!
Ardent and shield/heals and mov speed to catchup enemies.
