Threats & Synergies
NOT A PROBLEM! I have never lost to this joker, NEVER!
Just stay out of her range and poke her to death with your Q's. Simple. Her low HP and lack of escapes makes her easy to harass and dive once you have ult!
Haven't lost to her yet! Your true damage E's cut right through her shields. Don't try to run from her, stand and fight like a man! Olaf's ult will not negate her ult so don't wast your time trying!
Cho can be a real pain in the neck! Keep in mind that he can easily kill you when you are low HP with his ult so don't to to be too ballzy! Try to avoid his abilities and poke him to death with your Q.
FINALLY, A WORTH OPPONENT! Stay out of range of his Q and his pull and you will be fine. Farm with your Q and poke him down. Play safe and you will win. People pick him in an attempt to counter you so get used to fighting him.
Your Q's do more damage. Don't bother trying to dive him, he WILL out sustain you. A REAL pain to kill, just focus on out-farming him and you will win lane.
Not very difficult! The slow on your Q makes her dash mostly obsolete so she is pretty easy to chase down. That being said she can chase you down too so stand and fight! Her passive hurts but remember that you are more dangerous when you have low HP!
Q him to death. Be mindful of his barrels.
Q him at a distance and make sure to activate your W before he silences you. His ult will kill you at low hp (at your most powerful) so be careful.
Your projectile do more damage! Dodge his boomerang, abuse him with your Q at a distance. He bounce away from you when you close the gap on him so wait for him to turn into big GNAR, THEN go all in with your alt to negate cc. Maybe it's just me but Gnar players are really easy to tilt. In my experience you only have to kill him a few times for him to RQ.
Avoid her Q and E. Bait out her ult. Don't call your jungler, he will only give her a dubble kill. Hit he with your Q's and push her out of lane ASAP.
Try to bait out his stun than go all in. Mind his jump and try to farm with your Q.
Avoid him empowered Q's and poke him to death with your Q's. Not a problem.
A pain to deal with! Stay out of range of her abilities and poke her down with your Q's/
Hit em with your Q's until he is dead or forced to back. Go in on him once you have your ult.
Stall the wave and don't let him farm. Try not to let him farm under tower. He will be a problem late game so try to win ASAP.
Your Q's are better than his.
True damage through her shield! Stay away from walls so she can't stun you against them.
Just, no. He will stun you pre lvl 6. Dive you under tower and out-damage you. You will not win this lane, just try not to feed.
Poke her down with your Q's and knock through her shield with your E. Ask for gank and make sure not to feed. One of the reasons I started maining Olaf is BC he counter her, that being said you still have to be careful. Be very careful not to feed and ask for a gank if you need it.
Follow the no. 1 rule of league and you will be fine. Let him peroxy, it just means that you can have all his farm for free. (Pssst, your Q's slow him so just keep that in mind)
Yeah no, this guy will kick your ass. Just farm with your Q and ask for a gank.
Low HP = Easy to Q to death. Wait for him to waist blinding dart than go all in! Rush a Maw and you will win. Be sure to kill him before he kills you.
Keep him at low HP with your Q. Force him to pop his ult then kick his butt while it is on cd.
A pain to lane against, be sure to land your Q's and be careful.
Olaf counters any and all ADC's in the top lane. Your Q has more range than their AA's. Throw Q's until you drain their little HP bars.
Farm at a distance with your Q. Try not to feed. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCE engage in melee combat with Xin. If he engages on you, run!
Abuse him with your Q, don't get too ballzy.
