Caitlin Top | "Catch me if you can!"

By Xarmat
Caitlin Top
Wellcome to this Off-Meta Cait Build.
Why should you playing Caitlin Top?

Cait has good cards against immobile melee champions. She can zone them with her traps, can slow them with E and get some space with her E and Galeforce. She is able to handle enemy dashes and can be build sustained enough to beat melee champions and assasinss in trades. At the end of the game, you will get a stady ADC with long range, slows and nice mobility.
Looping Questions
While playing Cait you should have some questions rotating in your mind:
- Can I poke the enemy with my next AA?
- Can he reach me somehow, when yes, how will I react?
- Do I have my E up, does he has his gab closer up?
- Do I need a trap under my feed?
- Should I prepare some traps in front of me or behind me?
- Where is the enemy jungler?
- Do I need to place a ward into the river?
- Can I go to the mid lane and get a pick with my ult?
Some Simple Tips:
- AA and move! Don't stay at the same position. Either get more pressure or kite backwards
- Walk into brushes after AA to avoid damage from minions
- Keep an eye at your passive to poke the opponent even harder
- When an enemy try to all in you, use your E and then place a trap right under your feet, if he cases you, he will step into your trap
- Use your trap to zone melee champs, so they must walk a longer way to reach you
- If you get out from a trade that was even, use your ult from a save distance to do a bit damage and force them to slow down a bit
Lets jump into the head of the jungler: "Oh nice! A squishy ADC on the top lane for easy ganks! Come let`z get her boyz!"

Truley, if you didnt encounter a lot of ganks on the top lane, you will experience them while playing cait top.
When using wards and traps smart, you can bait the enemie jungler to the top lane and your teammeats have time to play there game and get strong.
This is bad for you personally, but you will see that you even win the game when you lose your lane to the jungler.
Your Role In the Game
Positioning is key! After the leaning phase, you are a ADC as usual. So play like one and group up to bring the most for your team. Think about your positioning.
If there is a Kill to take, be a Gentleman / Lady and give it to the bot lane ADC.
Have fun! This is part of the build (and should be part of leagues player experience as well). Have a blessed day!
