Threats & Synergies
Zed Can easily burst Gankplank so need to make sure you farm only when you are sure he cannot haras you.
You can farm, she isn't that much of threat at the laning phase until level 6, after it you need to always pay attention to her.
When he R you flash.
You should pick Bloodlust for her because she can easily haras you and you will get a good sustain against her. Anyway she might one-shot you
She is a really threat for GP, as you play GP you can't really farm against her because she will instantly poke you. So you need to make sure you choose bloodlust against her to get some good sustain, also consider taking TP instead of the exhaust.
He is not that much of a threat for Gankplank, you can easily get through the laning phase if you play smart. You can W this R and you will always have exhaust for him. (Only take fights if you have exhasut).
Who Am I?
I am GP main from season 6 I've been watching a lot of Tobias Fate who encourage me to play GP.
I have a YouTube Chanel on which I speak in Polish.
Once you get sheen, life will be a little easier for you. You can last hit the mage minions under tower 10x better, and finally use those juicy barrels for poking. When you get triforce, you will ALWAYS kill the mage minions with a Q, even when they're at full health. TriForce is how you can counter push lane matchups like Ahri, Ekko, etc...
Most Gangplank players would tell you to use that bandit mastery for your advantage and steal that 10G. I WOULD NOT recommend this until Sheen due to the fact that resetting minion aggro is a lot hard than top lane, since in top you can just Q and run in a bush to reset minion aggro. Mid lane you'll always take a few hits from the minions if you're trying to use bandit. USE IT AFTER YOU GET SHEEN and you'll be okay.
Your lane becomes a lot easier when you hit level 7 because of the barrel tick speed. You'll probably have Sheen by then too so your lane shoving should be better. When you hit 6, make sure you're looking at the map and allies because those kills and/or assists will help you get back all the CS you missed under tower when being shoved in. The only time I would roam on GP is to counter roam or when your jungler is getting invaded and needs help. Yes, farming on GP is the most important thing, but a kill or assist will 100% make up for the CS you miss if you roam. But you have to make sure to get the kill or assist. Never waste flash for an assist. A 5 minute CD on a survivability summoner just for an assist will cost you dearly.
Goal In Lane
You are Nasus type champion, you need to get through the laning phase and eventually become a monster, as you will hit level 13 and will have 2 core items you will become such a pain for the enemy.
