Threats & Synergies
Easy match up bait one of his Q's then back off and when Q is on cooldown go back in and also be careful of passive because it hurts. You can also block his W with your W.
Block or dodge her charm and after that you should be able to win against her for the trades. Bait her Q faking that you go to take a cs and then make a step back so it won't hit you. When she is R fake that you go for an all-in, when she uses the first part just dash back and wait for R to go on cd
A good akali player can beat you but if you know also how to play against her it should be fine. EQ when she is close to minions and insta W when your EQ is done to block her Q. Dont get hit by her E and when she uses W dont stay close, go back and wait for the shroud to expire.
Dont her hit by her stun and you should be all good. Freeze against any mage champion on mid lane. Make them overstep for the minions so when they do dash asap on the minions and get on them, make a good trade with 1 or 2 q's E and 1-2 AA's and go back when they are below 50% hp you can go for an all in.
If she is good, you shouldnt win this lane, early game she destroys you and you cant really outrade her at all. If she decent annie maybe you can do something against her. Not a whole lot to talk about this match up. Try to freeze again, farm safe and wait for jungle ganks, also try to poke with nado and thats all, maybe if you hit lvl 2 and she doesn't you can make a good trade there and that can decide the lane if you kill her. (Buy hexdrinker after you purchased bersekers)
Lvl 1 play bit safe dont get too poked, lvl 2 its pretty ez if you dont get stunned. Again here just freeze make him overstep for minions and go to trade with him, you win extended trades, mages don't
Lvl 1 be careful when you go to farm and he uses his soldiers. Try to stay as healthy as possible and have a good amount of farm.Lvl 3+ when he uses his Q try to find an open window for a trade because then is the time when he cant dash away with EQ. You can block his soldiers with your W and if you time your W well when he R's you should be able to block it. (Buy hexdrinker after you purchased bersekers)
Easy one, try to not get stunned because the amount of damage he can output is pretty big. Bait W while faking to go and AA the minions, try to dash a way that is kinda unpredictable so he wont be able to predict your dash in case you've been hit before that and have his passive on you. (Buy hexdrinker after you purchased bersekers)
If you play a really good camille player you should lose. Otherwise if average player you should win if you know how to lane against her.Her passive is a big deal in the lane, she can make good AA cancels if Q is used right and the amount if damage is significant. Stay at the opposite site of where she is so the possibility of her hitting you with her E is less. When she activates Q try to dash at the minions untill its over. When you both level 6 when you have nado try to bait it or make the dance animation because in the beginning its exactly the same like yasuo's Q when she uses R try to predict where she gon be and position yourself right so you can hit the nado. AA before R if you have enough attack speed to
That's a mechanical match up. Better player wins. Try not to get hit by her Q, block her E's and try to dance around your W while she try to hit you with E.Predict her ult so it wont stun you. Also try to bait her W and wait for it to expire and then you can dash around freely. (Buy hexdrinker after you purchased bersekers)
He's pretty annoying to face. Has good sustain from passive,decent wave clear,annoying silence and tanky. Try to predict his Q, dodge it,while he uses E stay away from the minions or go in front of him use W and poke him while he AA's the minions. Buy bork against him, it helps sustain and is pretty good against tanks. Try to punish against any melee champs like cho when they go for minions especially early levels so you can have a good potential to all in them a bit later (if you have ignite the chance is even bigger) also on top against any match up I personally freeze and it helps me a lot to win the lane+when the enemy oversteps you have a good chance there to run them down since yasuo wins extended trades against most champs ( Especially tanks) and you can also set up ganks this way.
Pretty easy match up. Be safe lvl 1 and after lvl 2-3 you should be able to out trade the shit out of him by blocking his Q with your W and after he uses W ( 20 / 19 / 18 / 17 / 16 ) this is his CD so after he uses it you have plenty of room to punish him in case he oversteps for the minions and you win the trade/all-in.
Darius is a big bully in lane. Try to punish him for the minions level as much as you can. If you do so lvl 2 if he uses his Q and fails it go in for a trade/all-in, if he didnt use his Q till then and he does after you are in combat with him do not dash onto him untill he uses Q so when he does use it dash on him to deny the heal and take much less dmg. If you fail early you shouldnt really be able to win against him later in the lane expect if you get camped. Try tom avoid at all cost not to give him 5 stacks because after that you wont win.Dash around the minion wave when there is a big one and try to kite him. If he gets 3 to 4 stacks onto you kite so the stacks will go away and then you can go back in for a trade. Good darius players might avoid all that stuff and just smash you in lane. If they play with teleport don't be that afraid, but if he does play with ghost its really scary, one mistake and you are dead, he will run you down and you wont escape.
A good diana player should be able to win against you. She has much more damage overall, especially lvl 6, W does damage to you and gives her double shield, one when she activates it and another one when all the balls get used on a target, try to bait her W by going in and out instantly. She also can cancel your Q if she times well her E, Q is kinda unusual and needs time to get used to. After level and so on try to block her Q because if you dont she will output a big amount of damage with her full combo. (Buy hexdrinker after you purchased bersekers)
Stay behind minions,block Q's if you are not behind the minions, punish when he goes for cs and play around the waves so it becomes a pain in the ass for him to hit Q's. In case you want to reduce his healing get executioner.
Skill based match up would say. There aren't that many good ekko players out there. Block his Q with your W or dodge it, don't let him put 3 stacks from his passive onto you because he will proc electrecute and it will hurt a lot+ he will take a burst of movement speed and you wont be able to chase him to deal any amount of damage.Be careful when he randomly goes out of vision because he most likely used his W and will try to surprise you with it while baiting you to fight with him inside the circle where he placed it. (Buy hexdrinker after you purchased bersekers)
A good fiora player should be able to win easily against you. Maybe if you get used to this match up at some point it might become a bit easier. So notice where he vital is (passive) try to position so you can deny her procing it ( it deals true damage, givers her burst of movement speed and heals her for a small amount. Be patient with your Q, let her Q first then use yours, block her W with yours, try to avoid her second E and when he ults you try to stay near a wall or dash around the minions to stall out the ult until its over, if you can't kite around a minion wave try to stay close to a wall while running to deny her procing the last vital so she won't heal from her R. Freeze against her and let her do mistakes such trying to poke you with Q and maybe that way she will get a tower shot and it might be the time to kill her. Otherwise farm as much as you can and do not duel her a lot. Keep up with the farm
Punish him early especially level one when he tries to go for minions. Try to avoid him E while dashing and reading where he is going to land so you can deny the damage it will deal you. When he uses Q onto you go and dash on the minions because most likely it will be the time when he will use W too, so wait for his W to expire and go on cooldown and he won't have really anything else expect his E to do damage with. When he uses E try to punish, its cooldown is pretty long and its his only escape ability. Try to also have good reactions so you can block his R with your W avoid getting way too close with him at lvl 6+ because the reaction time to block his R is pretty small. (Buy hexdrinker after you purchased bersekers)
Easy one just try to dodge his W because if he taunts you, you probably will get hit by his E. Block his Q with your W to deny the damage. Ganks are really well made with galio so respect that otherwise you might die a lot.
Easy one. Get used to the match up and you shouldn't be losing against him. Q is blockable and when you have your passive up do not use W let your passive tank his Q, dodge barrels with your dash, try to bait him using them, predict it and its pretty simple after that. Try to poke and make small trades as much as you can. For him to sustain in the lane is mana hungry and he will run out of it eventually. As last thing about GP be careful when he has his passive up since it deals true dmg and is like an ignite so let him use it on the minions and you can go without taking this true damage from him
That one is pure aids. Q does a lot of damage, has really good hp regen from passive, tankiness, W makes him even more tanky, E is also just aids he will use it after Q every time and his R does true damage. If you dont try to kill him early game I dont think you will later. So try go to poke when he goes for minions, freeze and go for a trade after he uses Q to try and catch you (if he fails it) and its on cooldown go in to try and deal some damage.While freezing set up ganks since he doesnt really have any escapes.
Usually yasuo wins but in high elo it can be skill based. Block his Q so it can go on a long cooldown or just dodge it with your dash. When he puts 2 stacks on you from his W if u have your W up use it to deny it. Try to predict his jump so you follow him for a big longer trade. When he gets mega form try to dash around so u can deny that W stun and stay away from the walls.
So against this hentai bitch. So damn around when she uses Q or W so you can dodge the tentacles. Dodge or block her E at all cost it is pretty much what makes her really strong. After she misses or gets her E blocked its the time to go for a trade. So after level 6 try to go in, again do not get hit by E and bait her R. When she uses it dash back on the minions, go to a safe distance and when the R is over you can go back in for a trade since you will have the ultimate advantage.
Level 1 stay close to your front line minions so you can zone her from them. If she still goes to take them poke with AA and Q. Level 2 be careful she can all in you there, do not get hit by her stun or you might be dead, the safest time to go in for a trade is at level 3 when you will have your W up so she will get denied. Some good irelia players do their E against yasuo horizontale which is the least expected way. If they do it try to react on the second part. Predict her R if you can or watch for the short animation. Again freeze against her so you can build a cs lead and force her to do mistakes.
Jax usually counters yasuo but if you poke him level one with your Q when he does for cs and deal near 150-200 damage without him doing 1-2 autos and stunning you with E you should be able to get first blood between level 2 and 4. When there are big waves try to read him to sense when he will jump on you so you dash on the minions right when he jumps and dodge that E stun after that just run him down and you easily win the 1v1. He will burn a summoner/die or make him back and lose minions. Freeze against him too that will just keep extending your lead and if he oversteps to take minions you can freely poke him with Q or EQ on the minions and deal some damage on him where you will get him at some point at low hp and all in him if he stays. Later on the game just dont disrespect him even the slightest because its jax and he can kill you with trinity and tiamat if you are squishy
Play defensive against him early game he has the range advantage farm with your Q till you get level 3. At level 3 you are able to do a bit more against him. Try to bait his Q when he is on cannon farm and then you should be able to go for an EQ and maybe AA. If you stay after you EQ him he will try to AA from cannon form and then swtich to hammer and then there is coming the big burst of damage which will make the trade really worth for him. So overall early game look for short trades when he has cannon form stay behind the minions and keep in mind where he is positioning so you can adjust your position too so you won't get hit by his splash damage of EQ (cannon farm). When there is a big minion wave from his side you can dash on the minions and do EQ to hit him and the minions at the same time. He will try most likely to attack you or go hammer form so try to kite and make him overextend a bit so afterwards when he uses his stuff you are able to dash on his minions and run him down for a winning trade by your side. It won't be easy in the beginning but you gotta get used to the match up and will learn it and get more comfy with it slowly but surely.
Kassadin his really weak early game. Try to punish as much as you can when he is going for minions or when he ovetsteps. Freeze so you can deny his minions and put him under pressure so he does mistakes. If your manage to win early game the game for him is over. Use your lead to snowball and play smart. Keep track of the enemy jungler, use wards and be aware of as much stuff as you can. You can block his Q with your W when ever your passive is down but when its up let your passive tanks his Q and you are fine.
If kata is good you shouldnt win this match up. Before level 6 try to use your W to block her Q and when she uses W try to go away it. Careful when she throws her Q on the minions and it lands to the ground, stay away from it. Now level 6 when even she ults if she is behind you try to place your W that way that when you dash on her you are behind your wind wall and blocking her R damage. After that everything should be fine. Early levels also she has a good amount of damage so respect that and also play around her cooldowns especially E. (Buy hexdrinker after you purchased bersekers)
She is really easy to face. When she uses her E wait for it to expire, block her Q slow and go in for trades. Try to fake that you are going for an all in so she uses her ultimate and then we she stays you can kill her.
Thats an easy one. Stay behind your minions. Go in for some poke early levels when she uses Q, try to bait her Q by going to the side a bit of your minions and then back in so it wont hit you. Her E is also really important with a big cooldown, so after she uses it you can go for a small trade again and go back. When you get her to a low amount of hp try to all-in. Try avoiding also getting stunned and freeze. That will help you extend your minion lead and put pressure onto him.At level 6 if you can bait that you go for an all-in to force him to use his R and then back off and look for something to do while his R is on CD.
Try to block his Q, its pretty much the main ability which helps him lands him combo afterwards (level 3+). Fight him in a minion wave so you can kite around when he dashes on you or tries to hit you with his Q. When you see that he activates his W it will most likely mean he's looking to go in for a trade and a possible all-in so again here try to dash on the minions till that BS expires.
This is one of the bit more difficult mid lane match ups. The most obvious ways for her to trade is first to use her Q first which you can predict just by looking at her movement. Try to stay behind the minions so its much harder for her to hit her chain ''E''. Respect her in lane because she can punish mistakes pretty hard if the player you are facing can play her. No idea what else I could write about this match up honestly :/. (Buy hexdrinker after you purchased bersekers)
Go in bating her W so her aftershock can go on CD. Be careful when you are behind the minions and she casts Q because the range and hitbox extends so avoid that. When you go for a trade try to block her E when she tries to get away. Play with cleanse against her because of the R. Poke as much you can to maybe make possible an all-in.
Easy one. Dont get hit by her Q, E is really dodgeable with your dash and her W can be blocked with yours. Squishy champion easy to burst. Should have no problems against her.
When he Q's you if you have your passive up let it tank it, if not use your W to avoid the damage. Go in make him use his E go back and after few seconds you can go back in since his E will be on cooldown and he wont be able to lower your attack speed. Poke early game when he goes for minions and there should be surely an all-in potential 1-2 minutes later if he keeps disrespecting you. If you want buy bork against him it helps vs tanks to kill them and gives you a good sustain which allows you to take bad trades.
Play defensive against him level 1, level 2 you can go and trade but let him first use his E on the minions to wave clear and then go in. ( keep in mind not to be close to the minion which is dying because it might apply on you and probably that will make you lose the trade. After level 3 when he uses his E to wave clear and spawns void links EQ on then so you can kill them and deny him the wave clear potential he has, this way he will waste a lot of mana over and over and be forced to get out of lane and recall or if he stays he cant trade or wave clear at all. Freeze against him so you can make him overstep for minions and thats the moment to go in and trade with him/all-in.Buy also a QSS for his ultimate or a hexdrinker if their jungle is AP also (Buy hexdrinker after you purchased bersekers)
Maokai is really annoying for yasuo, he can cancel your Q with his or dodge it with your W which snares you. Try to stay away from the bushes because most likely he will have put 1 or 2 of his E's in there. Early game is the time to try and trade with him to make an all-in possible bit later. If he gets too tanky i would suggest go for a bork it will help you take bad trades and kill him too. Also his R is blockable with your W. Freeze against him because he is a tank and he ain't gonna win extended trades.
Try to avoid getting hit by his second and especially third Q, when he has W on himself dont go near him or think of fighting him. Bait him E by walking near its range and then walking back. Try to kite in the minion waves, freeze and play around cooldowns. Get nado EQ on his wave when he is close there AA and E back. Clean stuff etc. If executed right you should be able to kill him.Also executioner helps against him and if you want get one hexdrinker early game so you can have better chances of killing him early
Most nasus players are greeding hard for the stacks on heir Q so when ever they come for a minion harass them as much as you can it will come to the point that they will be that low on hp and killable. Bait his E by going in for a ''trade'' and then go back with E on his minions. After its over his E you can trade freely. Try to avoid getting hit by his Q's as much as you can. Avoid staying in his W because it reduces your armor so he will deal more damage on you. When he ults run just run you dont want to fight him at that duration of time he gets more tanky his R does some magic damage to targets close to him and he gets his Q cd lowered, so just bait it by going into for a fake fight and when he uses it go back asap and stay in a safe distance until its over.
So neeko is kinda annoying with her R. Otherwise she aint really a big thread, her E is really dodgeable and her Q too. She might deny you when u have nado and try to EQ her by using her W going invisible so you can't ult her.
Olaf is a big yasuo counter its really hard to play around him in the laning phase. Extended trades if he hits his Q he wins them 100%, gets more attack speed the lower hp he is, his W gives life steal and attack speed and his E deals true damage and its cooldown gets lower with every hit he does on a champion. Respect him level one otherwise you will die because he can run you down. His ultimate denies every type of CC,slow etc. If you want give it a try and level 3 try to poke him with your Q and play around your W to block his Q. Its really hard to execute but not impossible. If you want buy executioner to lower his healing or brumble vest which I would recommend the most because it gives you defensive stats, reduces his healing and heals a bit of magic damage onto him when ever he attacks you.
Respect her level 1 AA's they hurt and a bit less level 2 since you can go in and trade a bit. If she uses her Q at level 2 you can go in for a trade and do like AA EQ or EQ AA and go back. Level 3 you should be able to beat the crap out of her. Let her use Q to try and farm or poke you then dash towards her she will use E, block it with your W so she wont get the shield and again trade for a short period of time. Freeze against her so if she oversteps you can go for an extended trade which she loses any time you do it. Level 6 try to bait her ultimate by going in and dashing back hoping she will think its an actual all in and after that you got the upper hand.
Be careful early game with his W if he applies it on you then the AA he will do on you hurts a lot. Level 3+ care for his Q when he will cast it, stay away from it because if he knocks you up you will lose a good amount of hp. Again here we also try to freeze because we win extended trades and when ever he uses his W and you are in front of him either try to dash on a near by minion, if there isn't any close just dash on him so he won't put the W cookie on you, afterwards you should be winning the 1v1. Level 6 you can block his R, it will be really useful especially in the teamfights since his ultimate become useless. Be patient with your W so you can use it when ever he uses R. It can make a big difference in the teamfights. Buy bork if you wish to, it helps a lot vs champions like ornn.
Early game respect him, he can fuck you up big time. Stay safe and healthy the first few minutes of the lane. Afterwards when you get boots with an hp item like phage or juramis fist you can trade with kill and potentially kill him. Try to block at least one of his Q's with your W, it can make the difference in the 1v1. After you get 2 to 3 finished items thats the moment when you absolutely shit on him. Again here we also freeze so we can stay safe and healthy as i mentioned above, missing few minions also is not a big deal in case he freezes, at least try to be in xp range and all gucci. The wave is gonna come under your turret and you should be able to freeze or even perma freeze if done right
Poppy is really annoying to face, Try to poke her with your Q early game stay away from the walls try to be in the center of the lane so you wont get stunned and fucked. Her W is really annoying since it can stop one of your E's but thats it only one and afterwards you can dash freely around. Avoid getting hit by her Q. Freeze pretty much in lane and wait for jungle ganks because most likely you wont be able to do a lot against her, farm up and scale but give it a try to see how the trades go. Her R is blockable with your W so it can make the difference too in the teamfights. ( Only when charged enough to knock you away but dont stay too close to her when she charges R because it will knock you away just keep a medium distance and it will be blocked. Bork here helps again if u cant sustain in the lane
Quinn on top is really annoying she can use her passive 3 times if done right, Q blinds you, E knocks you back a bit and slows you down after the jump is done. Try to avoid the Q blind, stay away from her when she has her passive on you. Force her use her E on you and when its on cooldown go in for a trade, doing 2 to 3 good trades should result to an all-in potential. Also respect her lvl 1-2 advantage she has so you can stay healthy in lane and trade after level 3. Ping a lot for your team and keep them aware after level 6 because she can roam anywhere she wants with R + she can come back to lane real quick so keep that in mind in case you are low hp and staying to push a last wave before recalling.
Dont play like a pussy lvl 1-2 thats the chance for you to try and get the upper hand and having the potential to win the lane afterwards if played right the whole laning phase. Level 1-2 poke him as much as you can when he is coming to last hut minions, that gives you an opportunity to kill him level 2 to 4. If you are low hp and under your turret and he is a good amount of hp the chances are he will most likely flash or E then W AA Q and you are dead so be careful with that one. Try to bait his abilities and keep punishing when he goes for minions but know when its a good moment to go for it. In case you make a mistake even if you are 1-0 he can still kill you, he's a bully so keep that in mind. Level 6+ try to bait his R by coaching in for some fake all-ins, if so he falls for it try to do your best and keep a good distance between you and him, wait for R to expire and then you have R advantage. Play around cooldowns especially W and Q. Careful when he has fury above 50 because then if he gets in range he can E and just W will proc PTA by itself which hurts alot and then the chances for a trade back are kinda low.
So rengar top lane is pretty strong early game he can burst you big time level 2 when he jumps from the bushes so try to stay close to the river so he doesnt have the range. Its easy to predict where he is going to jump, just take a look at your minions and see which are low hp, when he jumps on them to kill them you can go for a Q or EQ and then asap go away with a dash on his minions or just walk away if you have the range. After you back and get a bit of attack speed/HP/refill potion. Usually that should be the time when you can kill him by a bit of poking and then all in-ing him. Keep in mind he will usually fight you in your minion wave so you get some extra damage from there. Also keep in mind how many stacks he has.
So riven... Wait for her to use her Q at last 1 part of it and 2 would be the safest bet. After she does you can go and trade with her. Play around her cooldowns especially her Q which is her main ability which allows her to do the AA cancels and output so much damage. Try to bait overall her abilities and then you are able to run her down. Level 1 and 2 you can go to harass her if she goes to last hit the minions. Respect her level 6 because if she does everything or almost everything right she can kill you easily. When she does her 3rd Q try to time your dash well so you can dodge it, that simple thing if you learn the timing can make the difference if you gonna win the 1v1. When she uses E wait for it to expire then use EQ. Freeze against her and make her vulnerable to ganks and you can do really short trades without her being able to trade back.
Respect level 1 try to be safe and stay healthy do not greed for the minions and take harass for them. Level 3 and after let him use his Q and then its a good chance to win for a trade, dont forget to block his E and the trades should be pretty clean. Bait his R by going in and out. Fake it that you try to all-in and in cases W to try and catch you so he can harass after its done chase him the fuck down and kill him. So play around his cooldowns overall and u should be winning every single trade.
Against ryze so, stay away from the minions when his E spreads all over them. Bait W so you can go later when its on cooldown and trade with him without him snaring you into place. Block his Q when he uses E on you. Early play safe careful for ganks because he has point click CC ability and its really easy to set up ganks as ryze if you make a mistake. When he ults if you have nado up knock him up and it stops him from using it. Mercury boots would be really good against him.
Try to avoid his taunt, try to avoid fighting him when he has his shield on, its gives more AP damage on the next 3 hits and they hurt. Avoid fighting when he uses his W because it blocks your AA's. Freeze against him, early harass when he goes for minions and look for some good and short trades. If you dodge his E then try to bait his W and if you do so dash around the minions till its over and then go back to trade.
Honestly this one is really complicated in my opinion. Level 1 try to poke him with Q. Afterwards try to freeze and if he goes to proxy just push the wave all the way in. Careful of him flipping you into his W because it roots you. I personally hate this shit and i dont know what such counter tips i can give you.
Level 1 let him use Q on the minion wave (he might be hidding in the bush) harass when he goes for minions. Lvl 2+ you can go in for pretty good, bait his W if you can and then go back, let it finish and go on CD then you can go back in and trade, keep in mind how big the minion wave is and also you can block his E with your W if he doesnt git a minion first. You can easily dash out of his Q with your E when fighting. Level 2 you have your power spike so look to make an all in fight where is good potential to get first blood or at least force a flash out of him (you have to freeze to make this possible so let him push towards you) and if he flashes spam ping it and let your jungle know that top is free gank and that you are freezing.
Easy match up. Level 1 place safe dont get poked by his autos and Q a lot. Level 2 its a decent time to go in for a trade since he doesnt have any DPS at all and level 3+ you destroy him. Block his E with your W on its way back if it didnt hit you the first time. His W is easy af to dodge so nothing much about it. Now about his ultimate, he takes a decent amount of hp when he uses it so keep that in mind in case you ignite him when he is 100 hp or something like this, he will ult and heal up so he can survive. Just freeze against him every time, make him overstep and then go in for an extended trade and you win it easily with no trouble.
Really annoying match up, try not to get his by his Q ( at least the 2nd part of it) , his E is first part is a dash and he gets a small shield 2nd part is where you have to play around the minions as much as you can when you see he's trying to make a play on you, be around the minions dance around them and if there arent a lot and you see you gonna get exposed and able to get hit use your W and you should be fine. Cant say a lot about his W its not a skill shot so. So overall try to play inside the minion waves and let him use at least his Q and then go for a trade. Play that match up a few times and you will get used to it
So this a skill match up. Try to dodge her Q's by going back and forth, take a look where her balls are and how she positions so she wont stun you with her E. Again here we let her push so we have more room to fight with her, all we gotta do is block her E no matter if she stuns us or nah so you can run her down. Her ultimate can be blocked to and for the E you need to have good reaction time or try to predict (reaction time would be better, try to notice her animation when you chase her so you can time that W well and kill her possibly
Skill match up. Level 1 play safe respect him, level 2 is kinda risky just wait for level 3 when you will have your W up and can block his W so you can make a clean trade against him. Try also not to let him get the electrecute proc on you and you should be fine.
Really easy one. Play safe in the beginning and level 3 you can destroy him if you block his Q and overall try to play around your W if he stays at the same place kinda and tries to attack you.
Punish him early as much as you can level 2 should be yours. Level 1 might be kinda lame if he gets 1-2 crits off. So if you want to be safe go for the level 2 trade. Try to kill him before level 6 so you can have a decent amount of damage to out trade him by stats and if you play it right its gonna be even easier. Level 6 when he ults dash around the minions and kite till his ult is over and then if he comes back or tries to run the last second or 2 go back in and kill him if you have the amount of hp to survive in case he tries to turn it around on you.
That one is an easy one. Care not to get stunned and react on his throw of the golden card because a good tf player will wait for you to W right when he picks the card. Level 1 he might try to cheese you because of the range advantage so care about this one. When he gets level 6 he will look to roam a lot so push the lane 24.7 so he wont be able to go away otherwise he will lose farm but before level 6 you can freeze to make him overstay
Level one you cant really trade so just level 2 look for some E then Q (not EQ combo) and then E back to a minion to get out of his range. Level 3 and after look to make him use his W by dashing in faking a trade then dash out let his W finish and then go back in for a bit longer trade and try not to get hit by his E. Q isnt that hard to dodge so dont worry about it. Freeze the lane against him too because when you will have the lane close to your turret that will be the easier and most comfy moment for you to do the harass with E then Q. About his ult don't worry if you dont react on his 1st part of it because you cant block the 2nd one with your W too.
The only thing to avoid against him is mainly his cage. Do not get stunned by it and you are good to go. Bait it out again on him by going for the fake trades and force him to use it. After he does you are free to go in for the next 10-15 seconds to trade with him and block his Q if you can with your W to make the trade even better for you.
One of the easier match up every is dodge-able and blockable (cant block his R tho). Freeze against him make him overstep and dash into him and react on his E with your W its pretty easy and you got enough time for it. Just care level one for the light poke.
Level 1 be safe stay healthy, level 2 you can try to go for a short trade but let him first use his Q on a minion then rush onto him with your dashes. Level 3 and again let him use his Q on the minions then go in for a trade and try to react on this E with your W so it wont deal damage on you and slow you. Also avoid being near him when he has his passive up because that Q hurts and heals him a lot. Freeze a lot against him and when he oversteps dont let him fix that mistake so run him down and cut his hp bar. If you dont have W up and want to go in for a trade to avoid his E charge try to be behind a minion so it can tank the damage for you.
This one is kinda yikes. Early game he destroys you on the trades like that level 2+ because he has EQ combo and that insta procs electrecute. Try after he does that combo to try and trade back as much as you can without risking of dying. Its tough but if you play this match up a couple of times you can get the hang of it. Here we also want to freeze because the trades ain't that good, just try to build a cs lead and see how it goes from then and after.
His range sucks for yasuo. Try when you get level 2 to go in for some early trades to make him ready for an all-in. Its fine if you dont block his stun early game because it doesnt last long, later in the game it doies. Freeze against him make him overstep and run him down. Try to dodge that Q because its dodge-able and that W has a big range maybe if you predict he gonna use it based of his movement you might be able to dodge it with a dash or two.
Avoid getting hit by his E after level 3, try to kite him so he wont use too many Q's on you, they hurt a lot. His W is pretty useless with 1 dash you get away from it and the small zombies you can kill them with one AA. Freeze against him get nado EQ him knock up up AA and back off repeat that until he is able to get all-in/ed. Level 1 poke with Q when he goes for the minions to make it bit easier for the next levels
Zed level one dodge Q punish when he goes for minions to last hit, level 2 care of him getting E because if you go in at that moment he cant Q AA E or the same combo just in a different order and that procs electrecute for a big burst of damage which will ruin your laning phase until you back. Block his Q's when he does W. Avoid him procing electrecute and level 6 when he ults he stand still let him come out of his R, throw W towards him when he will appear and dash on him, you will be insta behind your W and it will be very hard for him to hit his Q's to deal more damage with his R, dance a bit too around the wind wall to make it even harder in case he has W and uses it behind you to hit his Q's. Freeze and punsih when he oversteps
Every single of his abilities is a skillshot and dodge-able expect his R which you can not block with your W. Level 1 play safe, dont get poked too much from his AA's and Q, level 2 and after you are free to go for trades and just be careful his W which he will most likely use when you are doing to dash onto him.
This one is really questionable because it really depends and how good the zilean you are playing against is. Level 1 you cant really do a lot, level 2 is the time to go in to trade with him. Level 3+ he comes really annoying because of his ability which can reset his CDs, he can slow you and speed up himself or just try to double bomb you which you can block with your W. When he gets level 3 be careful when going in for aggressive trades because he can set up ganks really easily with his slow which is point and click, respect that.
Level 1 she will probably do her Q when she is out of vision and start pushing the wave, respect her and look to go for trades at level 3. Try to bait or block her E and after that you can just out trade her easily. And again be careful when she goes out of vision while in lane randomly because most likely she uses her Q from far away so you wont see it and react on it or if the wall she went to is big enough to use her sleep because of the range boost it gives when zoe casts it on a wall. At the teamfights try to ward the sides walls and keep an eye on them because a good zoe player will be playing like this to hit an E and then 1 shot or almost kill someone from your team.
Champion Build Guide
-Teamfights: Try to hold your nado as long as possible and look for better opportunities to knock up more people because that can change the whole teamfight or even game outcome. Don't rush your W too, learn to place it to the most efficient way possible to prevent the enemies blockable abilities.
Never rush to use your ultimate to maximize the time your enemy will be knocked up, pay attention to the little line above the enemy you knocked up with your nado and use your ultimate right before it reached the end, this way when your ultimate is over you will have your Q right back up of cooldown and will be able to use it when your ultimate is done. Also before using R try to AA if you have enough attack speed and if you are close enough to your target. When you have 2 attack speed items and you are in range to AA and airblade (E+Q+R) do it to maximize the damage you output.
Never rush onto using your E on your target if there are minions close, use it in the end to kill them just in case they have some kind of a dash/flash/escape ability to be able to catch up on them and kill them.
Always when going to E+Q try to pay attention to your Q cooldown, when it reaches 0.5 seconds use E because at that point your Q gets resetted. Doing that a couple of times in a row will make a big difference and it will look like your Q has no cooldown.
Learn how to dash around in the teamfights, do not I repeat do not dash around in autopilot, think how you dash why you dash and where exactly you want to dash to achieve an outplay,dodge skillshots or get a better position to land a multiple man R.
I will be doing an advanced guide on my youtube channel about how to utilize yasuo's E and how to dash the proper way and improvise for some really good and not that commonly seen wall dashes.
When you chase and you are close to him with nado try not to use it instantly because they most likely will try to dodge it so in the meantime you can AA then and after when nado is almost over use it for an easy hit. If you get chased and you have nado hold it, they will try to side step and this way the distance slowly but surely becomes bigger between the 2 of you and again just it at the end when its almost over
