shit nibba i don't know but you shit on her early.
you destroy all of these after first back.
if shes really good she shits on volibear, now if you were playing against really good rivens you probably wouldn't be reading this.
these guys are the ones you should still destroy in lane but if they play well they will be able to not feed you too hard and out scale you.
these two can disengage from you fairly easily and you shouldn't be able to kill em if they play it right, they will also out scale you.
care for the true damage execute, if you dont die pre 6 you should be good though.
he will deny you dont sweat it just try to farm and back in time so he doesnt kill you.
after level 6 you can pretty much just farm him if his not going tankish.
yeah no one plays this guy top anymore
can't shit on you but will outscale and outmeme
if you give her easy time in lane she might try to build damage which will be her doom otherwise this is a pretty even lane.
not as hectic early game but he can survive in lane against you and he out scales / counters you later on.
he shouldn't be able to kill you but it can also be quite difficult to catch him and after 6 he will give your other lanes and jungler a hard time.
not much to say about these guys if they play it right they will beat you without ganks.
ranged ad champions got quite a bit easier with the implementation of bramble.
putting couple of extra points into your Q will help you with this one since ryze players usually max W last which will make it easy to get on top of him.
well if you dont get your jungler to camp (which he should) you are pretty much fucked.
that execute stings and the silence can stop yours, he can also just out push you and possibly proxy.
fairly even lane except for you getting out scaled.
volibear works decently well with most comps now since she can actually peel now due to his new e so feel free to pick him into whatever you want, more early pressure against immobile laners but he can always flash gank on cd.
If you don't know how to use teleport properly or like to be extra aggressive you might want to take ignite in a standard matchup, exchaust against someone who likes to auto attack or burst a lot such as vayne, this will also help your jungler to feast on her.
Sometimes i even take ghost and flash specifically when you are premade with your jungler for the roaming and ganking power this will give you.
try to hold your own before the first back (if running teleport) and destroy your lane opponent after the first back, never ask for ganks cause it makes you a pussi fgt, unless its gnar, jayce, vayne or some other cancer ****.
You should have achieved lane dominance by now and be ahead at least a bit, if you arent ahead volly is still one of the strongest mid game champs so **** on kids. try to make teleport plays bottom lane to get your adc ahead or use your **** for dragon calls or ganks / roaming with jungler. if you are strong enough to 1v2 just split top with decent **** coverage.
Well preferably your team should be far ahead at this point or have couple of good late game champions or you are pretty much ****ed.
What you want to do at this point of the game is to either flash Q a enemy carry or go hard peel mode for your carries and just try to kill whatever is close to you, as a high DPS tank you never want to waste time getting kited by the enemy carries while running after em.
I like to freeze the lane just before my towers range using my E and flippin my enemy into the tower when they come to last hit the minions. This is also quite effective at preventing the enemy jungler from ganking you.
If you are against a unfavorable matchup (everyone in the red zone) ask for ganks since its really easy to gank for volibear and they will be over extending anyways, just try not to die before your jungler helps you out or it might be too late for them to do anything.
Your first teleport should be to get back into the lane second or third should be to make a play at bottom lane or dragon after you win your lane. Mid game is your strongest point in the game after all.
