Threats & Synergies
Very jard matchup, could be better to pick something else if you are not confident. Try to farm and get a lead in the jungle. He will gank more often so try to counterjungle if he is somewhere on the map. Try to dodge his Counter Strike (E) with your Q.
He is quiet annoying, The early game is your weakest phase of the game. It´s just getting better. But he is a very strong early champ. He will counter jungle you. Try to avoid fights in 1vs1, you will lose.
Bassiclly the same as Jax and Pantheon combined. He has a very stron CC and early game. Try to farm as good as possible and only fight him if needed. If you have a lead in items you can fight him in nearly every situation.
It´s weird. He is not strong and will lose a 1vs.1 in every situation, but the potential to deffent the enemeys ADC is very hard for you. Also the Speed of Counter Jungling he does is quiet annoying.
She is hard to face in the early game. Try to eávoid fighting her even if she is counter jungling you. If you are ahead you can do so, but care ybout her burst damage. But don´t worry you will outscale her very hard.
He has a very strong early and a very good 1vs.1 potential. Try to farm and outscale him. If possible stay with your team in fights, to avoid the isolated Q. If he can snowball it will fell very unfair to play against him.
Same as for Kha'Zix. He can snowball very hard. If you manage to keep him small and don´t let him snowball as good as possible you can face him in 1vs.1.
He is just annoying as hell. He will counter jungle you as much as possible. If he does so and you can track him in your jungle try to counter jungle as well. If you survive the burst damage you can fight him.
Easy to fight in the early game. He is very weak and you can counter jungle him as long as you want. Take care in Teamfights and buy Mercurial Scimitar to deny his CC.
Could be hard if she can snowball the game. If she doesn´t you outscale her hard and you can search the 1vs.1
He can snowball the game very hard. If he doesn´t you should have no problems to fight him in every situation of the game.
Same as for Amumu. He is easy to face in the early game, but the CC he can land on you force you to go Mercurial Scimitar at least as third item instead of rageblade.
Try to counter jungle him in the early. If you can ignore him in team fights, so leave him in your team and try to fight the backline of his team. Fight him at last if your team doesn´t win against him.
The burst damage he can land is insane. If you manage to survive the burst you can fight him and destroy him very fast.
Try to counter jungle in the early and wait for her engage. If you engage in teamfights she will knock you up and the hole team commits on you.
He will gank very much in the early, try to tell your team to stay safe. If he ganks a lane try to counter jungle, if you get a lead you can fight him.
Try to avoid fighting her till lv 6, if you are even. If you are ahead do it. At level 6 you should be able to fight her in nearly every situation.
Special matchup. If you get it stay in your jungle to avoid getting in a 1vs2 in his. In team fights wait for his snowball and attack the backline first.
Same as Nunu, try to fight his backline if he engage your team. You will be fine if you manage to get a lead in farm. If he is able to knock up you in his team you are dead in every situation.
It´s all about the pathing. If you are able to farm better than her you can force the 1vs1. It´s annoying if you engage the hole enemey team and she use her ult to safe all her mades.
He can CC you for a very long time. Try to fight him if his CC is not up and you will see he as nothing to face you.
Try to counter jungle her as much as possible before she hits lv6. If she has it can be harder, because of her burst damage. If you can survive you can 1vs1 her easy.
I think this is a skill matchup. You can fight his backline and kill them quickly and he does the same with yours. Try to stay with your team to kill him first.
Kayn can snowball very easy because he can gank from every point on the map. If he does counter jungle him. You should be fine even if his Ult is quiet annoying.
If he isn´t able to land the CC he has on you he can´t fight you. Try to dodge his E with your Q and you can win the matchup easily.
He hasn´t any escape and is very squishy. You can counterjungle him as long as you want and you should win the 1vs1 if he isn´t fed.
Sylas is very squishy and hasn´t got the level of the midlane. Farm till lv 6 and you should be able to fight him after that.
Try to survive the early game. Say your lane they should stay safe so you can farm in his and your jungle. You can fight him in mid or late even if you are even.
