Threats & Synergies
Can save stun to peel off your all-in combo. And tibbers blocks your E Q sometimes D:<
A good ashe will save her ult to counter your all in
Draven can be extremely annoying. He can empowered basic you everytime you go for a cs to get good damage, and can use his knock back skill to stop your hammer Q, quite annoying.
Jhin's pretty weak against jayce adc imo, just go in after he reloads and he'll get rekt
Cait's annoying with her traps. But after you get youmuu's you really should decimate her. Just get her with 1 E Q cannon mode and you can all in her whenever you want after that.
Bard could be good with his stun, but you can always position yourself and the enemy with your hammer E, so he can't peel with his stun, and then you should be good to go.
Braum can be EXTREMELY annoying for jayce. If he negates all your E Q's with his shield it'll oom you and overall be annoying. Ask for ganks until you get 1-2 kills ahead then you won't even need to worry about braum blocking since you can just hammer mode destroy the ADC
Brand's damage early game is extremely annoying, he can force you and your support out of lane if you guys aren't careful. If he misses his stun i'd suggest quickly comboing him then E'ing him back towards your tower (or just killing)
Corki is just a nuisance early game until you get youmuu's then you can just e q him and all in afterwards. He'll always have to run away and then you can zone him with more E Q's threatening him and if he doesn't back you'll get a free kill.
This little bugger is quite annoying. His built in flash can escape your hammer Q and can dodge your E Q. If you can catch him without it, all in him before it comes back. Hopefully you've got a cc heavy support that doesn't rely on hard to hit skillshots.
Janna can't stop you from getting kills 1-5 and at 6 she can counter your hammer mode, but can't stop your cannon. Use hammer Q after her ult is down. Dodge her tornados and punish.
Skill Matchup/Better support
If she pokes you with her rocket everytime you go for cs she could get quite annoying. Be careful of her throwing down her root after you Q in with hammer. Suggest E'ing in hammer mode to disengage.
If you miss your E Q don't go in on her. She'll get too many auto attacks off on you and rend you.
Karma can be annoying with her poke and easy to land cc when you hammer mode. Try to get her out of lane or low before you all in the ADC.
Play safe until first back, then demolish him.
Lucian can be annoying if he dashes your E Q's and if he dashes your hammer mode Q. Try to E Q him right as he last hits your minions. Easiest time to land a free hit.
Lulu can be annoying if she plays defensively instead of offensively. She can counter your all in with poly. And can turn a play around with her ult.
Don't stand behind 1 minion, don't get hit by her root, and if you do switch hammer mode for defense if shes gonna ult you. Otherwise just all in when she doesn't have root.
Stay away from bushes, it'll be hard to all in cause of his knockback, slows, and roots.
Don't stand behind a minion with little hp, Q E hammer mode her ult and destroy her :D
Spell shield can counter your OP poke, and she can stop your hammer mode all in's with root and ult. She's definitely tough but wait until you get 1-2 items and you can waste her when she uses her spell shield.
Nami can be annoying if she's really good at landing her stun and using her ult well. A good nami will wait for your hammer mode Q and stun where u land, then knock you into tower with ult, all while healing.
Don't let him catch you off guard with his ult or hook. If he does, instantly respond with a knockback (hammer E) or all in his adc when they think they have the advantage.
Speedy guy. Just all in his ADC and only go in after he uses his knock up. His ult can be annoying but you don't need to auto attack people during laning phase to chunk them.
Don't let her spellshield your E insecs or poke and you'll be good.
Don't bother poking with her heals. Just all in after you get Youmuus or possibly your fast back. Don't let her auto you after her blue aura. Watch her buffs and don't let her use a 3rd aura blue buff on you, and you'll be fine.
Don't get hit by her falling star because she'll heal, and don't stand in her silence and you'll be fine. Don't bother poking, just all in after first back if you can.
tahm kench is so annoying. He can counter your burst and take advantage of your melee mode positioning by eating you and throwing you into minions or close/in a tower. Be very weary of going hammer mode versus him.
Good tarics can do well against you, but he's melee so you can take advantage of that, and just kill people before his ult goes off.
Don't get hooked. Let your support initiate if he's got ult. You can just poke/kill the adc with E/Q combos. Just don't let him flail your hammer Q.
Trist is also one of those run away champs. Shut her down early and don't let her become a hyper carry. Take advantage of your super long range poke and your fast combos. If you can land cc and hammer E her towards your tower her rocket leap may not save her.
Don't let him refresh his auto attack's poison once he's got it proc'd. It'll start adding up in true damage and can force you out of lane unexpectedly. You can easily all in him after 1 good poke.
Don't let him get 3 autos + a ability off on you. Get away from your support if he ults. You can easily pressure him out of lane with poke and a well timed all in.
A good vayne will be a nightmare, She'll position herself by walls and take advantage of her wall stun. With high mobility on a short cd she can evade you after your hammer leap. Get her low with pokes and then all in after she tumbles.
Don't get hit by knock up. hammer mode E his ult.
When you all in her hammer mode E her to a direction where her recalled arrows can't harm you, then demolish her.
Don't let him land pokes on you, and go in after he uses his satchel charge. Hopefully your support can land some cheeky free cc on him.
Her root is big trouble for you. Try not to let her land it, then punish her/adc if she misses.
My name's Alleonn. And I'm a Jayce Main. After coming to league of legends I saw the legendary jayce and read his kit and saw his animations. He looked amazing! But I thought with his kit he might be a little too advanced for me. After playing many other characters and learning the game better I decided to give Jayce a go, and I found out that I completely understand his kit and play extremely well with him. I always played him top lane and then found out some people play him mid, so I tried that and loved it too! Now I could take my main man top and mid, and then 1 day I was forced into adc in blind pick normals, and I decided "screw it, I'll just take jayce into bot" That game I absolutely demolished and thought maybe it was luck. So I tried it again, and again, and again. and after awhile I had to show my brother. My brother supported me and I went adc, with him playing a new support every game we went 25-2 in normals and I thought this was something deserving to be shared with other players wanting to play jayce.
