Threats & Synergies
Caitlyn: You will be constantly be in a wave war with caitlyn, she can punish you for free when you go to take minions. [[KAI'SA]] has a massive problem with her attack range range. [[Caitlyn]] has an obnoxious advantage of auto attack priority.
this guy can turn any lvl 2 fight you take. BE AWARE OF HIS AXES. players and prep where the axes go with pathing. if they are dropping them on the spot they will look to go in if they are throwing them back they are playing passive. He is another lvl 2 fighter. if he wins HE WILL WIN LANE. in case he wins. look for freeze and jungle gank. DO NOT KEEP FIGHTING! wait for him to messup, or you will bury the game under his mountain of gold
lvl 2 PTA fighter like you. be carefull here, he has more dmg then you and its guaranteed unlike your W he will look for PTA trades where he double auto attacks you and you will lose almost all your health. talk to your duo look for the pic early but if it doesnt work you need to kite it out well. you can also bait their early agression so they take minion and then look to go in be cautious of him at all times
get a kill or 2 on her early then be careful. once she gets lvl 6 or 1 item she will be hard to deal with because of her dmg, play around your 2-3 spike and then look to scale if nothing happens in this lane. play around her ulti and you should be fine. she may look like she does no dmg but she has insane potential midgame. *note* if she is comet ashe tell her to uninstall the game in all chat, she will be doing insane poke dmg to you. try and stay healthy and force on her. besides her w she has low dmg
Her push potential and waveclear will shutdown you getting lvl 2 almost every game. try and stay up in cs and be carefull of the bouncing blades because of your low range. getting onto her with your supports is hard due to her shield but you sould look to shut her down if possible. farming to midgame and playing river fights is important to keep you relevent dont ignore the team for 3 cs if its crashing tower its best to make sure she doesnt get her crit items by picking up free dragons and kills in river
in lane she is easy to deal with, your lvl 2-3 all in strat takes her out. be aware her traps will stop your ultimate dead in its tracks and her late game range will destroy you. if you play lane right she should be weak untill late in the game. she loses to you and your top 2 supports every game
her Q will be hitting you alot because of your low range. try and possition her self so she cant bounce off your low health minions to poke your out of lane. look for lvl 2-3 on her due to her low mobility late game be carefull of choke points because she will shred your team with her ultimate, baron and dragon pits is a big threat if she is alive
hard to fight him early but you will have more impact on the game untill late when he takes over. usually an ez in lower elo will always fall over late if you can bait out his e in lane just go all in with everything you have. he should be looking for a tear first so he will consistently have less dmg then you in fights in lane, as long as you ward for ganks and respect his poke you can get good all in fights on him or his support
This is your ideal duo. the lvl 2 all in strategy ill talk about in this guide goes best with naut or leo this reason is because of the passive on kaisa this gives you stacks for any form of cc. a simple Hook and auto from nautilus will give you 2 stacks. try to make sure to W when you have 3-4 stacks for max dmg
This is your 2nd Duo again for the lvl 2 power, ask her to start zenith blade and use it on the wave early so you can push it easier with her sunlight stacks. go in lvl 2 and lock down someone for either a flash or the quick kill. try to W when you have 3-4 stacks for max damage.
Alistar has a great impact in bot, personally i like Alistair because of his potency in diving towers, you should be thinking about his ability to give you stacks on passive for early lane lvl 2 headbutt pulverise is your bread and butter, look for it or farm always prep you e if you think hes going in after lvl 3
This makes your lvl 2-3 power spike weaker then it should be. BUT! braum and your passives will give you insane dmg, CC, and over presence in lane if you ever get a good fight off. I feel like this is more of a lvl 6 power spiking lane unless he manages to hit q or you get a gank. still strong just not good for that lvl 2-3 we are looking for here
blitz is a poor mans nautilus in this lane. he has that lvl 2 hook and knock up for 2 stacks but after you win lvl 2 you dont seem to be able to push your lead as you can with naut pressure. he is a team wincon with a good hook late game. but he wont win any medals for the best kaisa support in the game. still good! but seems to lack in the midgame department where it is more important to have someone who can peel for you
Stong for dmg, bad for peel. You will both be week to any sort of pressure at all. if they have a draven or any other engage support say goodbye to lane. late game you and brand can 2v9 through brands aoe dmg and your cleanup, but you have to win lane somehow.
One of the better Sheild Supports on the list but this will be your scaling lane, Janna can keep you alive in lane but you wont be getting any kills 2v2 unless they mess up baddly. try and freeze the lane and call the jungle down to help you both out. hard duo to pull off
Nami brings it all! the CC for your passive, healing its all great but she has the problem of her lvl 2 and being really weak to early agression. if she gets caught shes dead almost every time you cant save her. Look for bubbles and take the lane easy untill jungle pressure or your lvl 6 power spike and you should win. her ability to speed you up and give you auto attacks that slow, give you a potency in lane to make some mistakes. feel free to take early trades over cs BUT CARE ON THEIR ALL INS!
lulu is another strong sheild support like janna. you are able to use pix well early due to the attack speed steroid on your E and her ability to take 1 person out of the fight with her polymorph is really nice for early 2v2's Be carefull for the engage lvl 2 though. to win the fight you need to be the counter engage here and run them down. feel free to ulti for agression in this lane if she has ultimate up
she does dmg and his a snare for you. its pretty nice once she has unholy grail to heal you *if she is going support build not just flat dmg* you probably will get no kills here. but you do have the dmg to pressure lvl 2-3 and lvl 6. look for her sheild make sure to get the 2nd proc on your self for fights. Get your passive running on her bindings and she can do the rest.
I personally dont like karma at all support this patch, the nerfs to keep her out of top seemed to nerf her everywhere. the old slow on her Q and the movement on her E both got hit hard. you can win this lane. its just going to take some serious luck. get some poke out, make sure to sheild for chase down for kills or to save little bits of poke from hitting. play around her root and you will be fine
the word is black sheild here. binding and ultimates are fantastic for lane and gives your free priority to get PTA and your passive. But late game. that black sheild to protect you from that one misstake of getting to close to a CC user Is the difference between a win or a loss. Always happy for a morg to be played with me bot. Look for a binding lvl 2. if you miss just reset aggression and farm. do that over and over again for the whole lane. care for poke thats the main weakness in this duo lane
lvl 6 power spike look for fights. you have a good potential to take some dmg for cs and look for little trades but care on any early champions that have hooks. sona has one of the lowest base hp's in the game try to be aware of the weakness that any lvl 2 fighers can bring. good ulti = won lane you cant fight without it up or without jungle ganks ( you can win if they take consistent bad trades)
You have little to no synergy here. she will heal you and keep you topped up in lane. and lategame her items will all be focused on you putting out dmg. this play style may get you to late game but we are aiming for some lane pressure because dragons are meta. you will slow lose this lane
Hooks+Flay = Passive quickly good into matchups where you think you are going to get dove on alot. thresh is an all rounder support that can lantern you out or into a fight. Get good picks with flay or hook lvl 2-3. and lvl 6 all in seem nice with the slow that his box brings to your lane. I feel fights are based around them walking past thresh and trying to nuke you asap because he is weak alone early. Get him to save flay if he goes in lvl 2 with hook and use it when they go to path past him Over Confidence will kill you in this lane. make sure to get stacks before looking to land W
