Threats & Synergies
Draven is a champion that will absoulutely destroy Kog'Maw. You will NEVER go Kog'Maw into Draven.
Lucian is a champion who always dominates his lane, and his early game burst, and "Into your face" playstyle is really dangerous for Kog'Maw
Naut is a champ that Kog'Maw cannot deal with in the whole laning phase because of his extreme CC and Tankyness.
Annie is a champ that isnt played alot anymore in the botlane, but is still really dangerous for Kog'Maw if you get flashed on.
Leona is the most dangerous support to play against if you play Kog'Maw, she can engage on you at any time, and her burst is insane.
Alistar is a champ that has a potential to flash into you and knock you back, leaving you for dead. Also his Q+W combo is too hard for you.
Blitzcrank is really dangerous for Kog'Maw. His hooks will put you in extreme danger, but he of cause has to land them, so try to stay behind minions all the time.
Bard can be dangerous for Kog'Maw because of his Q which is easy to hit, and his R which is almost free to land on you because of your low mobility.
Who am i?
I finished up in Diamond 3, and i am now Diamond 4 after the new season. I played the game for around 3 years now, and i watch alot of LCS and proplay, and i get my knowledge from a combination of experience, talking to fellow Diamond players and proplay.
Rageblade and Hurricane provides huge AOE dmg in teamfights, and is completly op 1v1 as well.
Blade and the ruined king and Wits end is just to boost your on hit even more, and shread tanks.
The reason why you build boots of swiftness is because you want to move away from the enemy team quickly and give you more
mobility because of Kog'Maws lacking mobility. It is also a pit cheeper than Beserker greaves which makes you hit your powerspikes faster.
Always remember the best defence is a good offense. You want to try freezing your lane between your tower, and the middle of your lane.
This way you are safe from ganks, and can farm for free. If you go even in lane you will end up coming ahead in lane because of Kog'Maw´s late game
and midgame powerspike. You want to pick up a pickaxe in base, and try to get 1 or 2 daggers before you finish your rageblade.
Also you want to buy your Tier 1 boots after you finished the rageblade.
But you will still need to have both of them to do your AOE in fights. You want to stay as safe as possible, and be extremly careful with your positioning
because of your low mobility. Also should only use your E to slow enemies and only use W after that. You do not want to use your ult
unless they are out of your auto attack range, if they are under 50 or 25 percent HP your ult will nuke them.
you have to be extra cautious with your positioning. you want to look for AOE fights where you can do good use of your on-hit effects.
You should try to pick a safe spot to auto attack with your W to use the 5.0 attack speed to the fullest, simply because it is impossible to kite with 5.0 attack speed.
You can walk foward to harras people with your W active to chunk them low, but do not do it if the enemy has flash up and has an ability that can kill you easily.
