Threats & Synergies
You cant really do anything against this champion. When he uses his W on you and you go into W his W wont cancel and you still get damage.
You can dodge her Stun and maybe also her Jump damage. But she can also dodge everything you do so try to CS and maybe roam for some kills. If your jungler is good enough he could be useful for you.
His slow is very anoying and you can't dodge it. If he gets alot of Stacks you'll have a problem. Try to get movement speed. Don't fight him. Just go for some CS and roams. His R can counter your R.
Your W cant go threw his W so its useless. He will deal a lot of damage and you need to dodge his E. Just ask the jungler to give you some good ganks and don't fight him solo...it won't work.
Not a easy matchup. When she gets her R and hits her Combos on you will be painfull. Try to CS and poke until level 5-6. Then try to kill her by getting ganks. This could work for you.
You can dodge his R and with Hextech Porotbel you can get close to him. But he can poke you while you CS so try to CS with your Q and dont get to close to minions. With a Hextech Portobel and F and Ignire R you could get some easy kills.
The first 10 mins will be OK but after 10 mins he will destroy you. Just CS get some Gold and Items and maybe 1 shot him before he uses R in late game.
He will out damage you in early game. Try to CS and go for the E + W combo maybe also a Q on him. Hard matchup so wait for ganks and try to out level him.
Well sure you can counter his R. But he will poke you dead with his Q and if he gets abyssal mask you will get tilted cause he 1 shots you. If he goes AP you should be able to kill him.
He can deal a lot of damage and got a slow and his blood stacks will hurt you. Try to tell the jungler to gank in early game. CS alot and kill him in Mid and Late game. But only if you got some kills.
Early game is hard but Mid and Late is winnable. Dodge his R and maybe also his E and you will be fine.
You out damage her and you E counters her W. Kill her before she hits level 6 and get her tilted by destroying her.
You can dodge his W (Stun) by using you E+W combo(use E for dealing damage to him cause he will get close to you) if you can just out run his W.
Well who will one shot who. Pretty funny lane! just 1 shot her beefore she does and you will be fine.
W when he jumps on you for his R and play safe in early. Mid and Late will be stronger for you.
He out ranges you so try to get Boots and Hextech Prtobel and you will kill him if you are good enough. Play more safe than against other champs but you should win this.
Not a easy lane. You cant kill him and he cant kill you. Just a boring lane. If he gets abyssal mask it will be impossible to kill him. Ask you jungler for ganks. if you kill him before he gets his first item you might bully him out of the lane.
CS, Poke, buy items and you can kill him.
If he does his E go for a fast Q and go for E+W than run away with your W speed and come back when his E ends and poke again until he dies.
Run Run Run. If she hits you with her E dont use your W cause you will still get damage. Eaven more cause you lose health when you use your W. Just get items try to kill her with your jungler and dont die. Counter her R with your W and dont fight her solo.
Play safe and wait for Ganks. He will kill you easily.
You never poked as hard as in this matchup. Poke Poke Poke is the rule to win this. She will out damage you and go out of the fight with full HP. So poke and be careful.
You can fight him easily. Go for Hextech Portobelt and than rush Zhonya's. Counter his R with Zhonyas and than destroy him. He will roam alot so don't forget to SS. Use your W when he uses R to remove his ult.
Easy Matchup. Dodge her combos with your W and E combo and get some CS and Items. With your R it's a easy win.
You can dodge everything he can do. With level 6 you can kill him easily.
Use some AA and you can fight him.
Your W can counter his Passive (The explosion not the fire). If you do a good job you can counter his R.
Get Items and try to counter her R with your E+W and with lvl 6 and Items you can kill her so CS.
Your W can counter her R and her Stun. If she doesn't hit the stun or you dodge it go all in.
One of my favourite enemys. He is squishy and you can 1 shot him. its also eay to dodge his full combo with 1 W.
You can dodge his R. If you dodged it go all in. You can 1 shot him after he used R. Don't dodge his W (Stun/cage) it's useless. Just poke him and dodge his Q,E.
You will learn to dodge like a pro. If you dodge you can 1 shot him. He is easy to kill if you know how to dodge. After 2-3 games you will be a pro against him. You can counter his R with your W.
1 shot him before he does. Not a big deal. Get the Red Q + E + W and R him maybe ignite and dodge his R with your W. Don't get kited and don't get to many Q+AA from him.
You can 1 shot her. Just dodge her R and she will get deleted out of the game.
Stay away from her ball and if she pokes you you can heal back up. She is a easy 1 shot and might get tilted against you.
She is meele so bully her out of the lane. If she comes with Q+R+E just go for a R + Q + (E+W) and you will destroy her.
You can dodge everything he got so do it. His poke is weaker than yours so poke him out and kill him. Care about his W heal cause he might survive if you let him run with your R on him.
You out damage her the whole game so it's no problem. The only problem is her R in teamfights.
Dodge his R+Q and dont fight him while he got R and it shouldn't be a problem to kill this dude.
Build morellonomicon against his heal. The early game wont be a problem. Maybe the late game cause if his level 3 R. But keep him low and it will be easy.
Be smarter than he is. If he runs to you use Q and if he gets to close E+W and it will be fine if you can Poke him down. Dont fight him while he uses R.
Pretty easy. Play safe and if he runs to u with his Q use your Q if he gets to close use E+W and he wont be happy with you. but you will be with your KDA. If you are fast enough you can dodge his R.
I didn't play alot against him so i can't say alot about this matchup. Never saw a good Aurelion so just dont het hit by his Passive (Comets) and destroy this boiiiii
Dodge her R and just give her the full combo. She will die and be afraid of you.
Dodge her E and show her what it means to deal damage.
His blind is useless and you can Poke him death. Make Teemo useless again!
Sidestep his Q and dodge his R with your W. Kill him and show him what it is like to get killed. Give him a payback for killing your team with his R. If he uses his E just go for him with E+W combo.
Dodge her R with W. Heal back the damage she does and 1 shot her.
Counter his Q Storm with your E+W combo and you dodge it + you will deal damage. Get Hextech Portobelt and Zhonyas to dodge easier and you will be the hero of the game. He will roam alot so don't forget to SS. Your Q wors threw is Windwall (W)
Should be best friends! Amumu got some nice ganks for Vladimir and also in Teamfights amumu will stun all of them and you just have to do the rest. Pretty easy. AMUMU FOUND A FRIEND!!!
If he uses R just go for a full combo. You will deal more damage than a Malphite Yasuo combo.
Her R gives you the speed you need to get close to the enemys for your combo!
She keeps the enemys pretty long in on 1 spot so you can go for the 1 shot.
His R slow is ideal for you also the grab can help alot.
If he hits a good R you can do a lot of good damage on a lot of bad enemys. Good Kills for doing nothing.
