Threats & Synergies
His E can delete your Q. Make sure you force him use his E before diving in.
In lane she has a fair damage but in late game she is literally a monster. Make sure you have vision on the map and don't facecheck bushes.
Her W's grounding is an even threat for Kat. Just dont panic when you can't E.
Her level 6 power spike is uncomparable with Kat. Try not to fight her without an extra hand.
All you have to do against Ekko is to dodge his Q. Then you can go all-in.
Do NOT play aggressive in the first 2 level. In level 3 you can start trading. Ask for ganks. Once she falls back in gold & level, she can't catch you back.
Start with Long Sword against Kassadin. His Q shield will absorb your skills. Use your E auto-attack resets as much as possible.
Just don't play blind pick lol
Don't let her poke you in level 1&2. Make short trades and ask for help from your jungler.
After her Q is nerfed she is pretty easy to beat in 1v1. Just dodge her Q while farming
She has an extreme poking potential. Try to roam, ask for ganks. And mind your CS even more.
Let him push the lane. So he doesn't have any minions to poke you.
He's clearly broken. May god help you..
Don't 1v1 him. Just don't. Mind your Cs and Roam. And if possible counter-gank him.
Play aggressive. Don't let him stack his passive.
His windwall will ruin all of your combos by just deleting your Q dagger. Do NOT shumpo into your q dagger until its landed. Dodge his Q's in early game.
Just ban him if possible. His ult can waste all your combo. She is a terrible matchup for Kat.
Her knock-up helps you to do whatever you want in late game.
Love means synergy. And this two has an perfect synergy. While whole enemy team focused on keeping him away, you can show of your skills.
Katarina is perfect if you have Katarina in your team, otherwise, how could you deal this much damage?
Her ult is perfect for you. Just go in and start punching your keyboard while she tanks all the damage.
