Threats & Synergies
Easy Matchup , Max E and build early CDR ,Be Agressive. A good ziggs will use his w against your E , having lower cdr gives u advantage,Roam when he undertower.
Ekko's Nightmare , ask for blue buff to push lane with Q , and roam.
whoever has the early advantage wins the lane , she's weak pre6 and have no decent escape ,go for trades when her stun is not up.
Be agressive ,dodge his Q and is 100% wintrade.
Weak Early game , wave control and be agressive ,free win.. build zhonya's ,save your ultimate.
This requires some skill matchup accept level 1 , try to not lose hp , level 2 your R counter his so ..
Our other Mate with "2 Lives" be agressive dodge the stun .she has no decent escape,but is boring to kill and hard to roam against .
W counters your E , u can't R while stunned, a nightmare , to win u must hit 3 times to get movespeed and wintrade ,otherwise ....
Just be agressive level 2 onwards..
This requires A lot of skills ,she is a all-in champion ,and very weak when behind so any decent jungler knows you need early advantage,but to be sure ask for early gank.
His early game is dangerous , he's safe agains ganks , if ahead he'll roam mid game and destroy botlane, late game with zhonya's and low CDR he's untouchable.
whenever you go for it he Stuns you and wintrade easy , u can wait for him to be agressive dodge his w or e with your e then try to wintrade .
build early morello, his R is a pain , his silence is a pain , his w is dodgeable, be agressive early and dodge his w.
this guy is the teemo from midlane, be agressive , 3 Hit then when you're positioning yourself dodge his skill , pretty much like ziggs matchup, a bit harder.
easy matchup , u can go for all win after he gets about 60% or lower health and u have electrocute or dark havest up , 3 hit and kite his Q's.
his early is weak , don't give him early advantage, roam when he's undertower.wave control is the key here.don't spend a lot of time in roams too , his W can get him gold from towers fast.
skill matchup , dodge her E , and you're going to wintrade ,she's a all win champion,gold convergence is a really effective here.
skill matchup , usually u can't kill her neither she can you ,roam for win.
this is a real pain agains any midlaner, i usually dodge this matchup.
she is a 8/80 champion , like yasuo , she'll just run away , try to kill her early game , push and roam.
whenever she has no Q , it's a easy wintrade .
Medium matchup, Q to remove his passive and all-in with W , level 6 along a burst jungle like graves is a problem ,here i prefer tenacity over QSS.
not too much to say i always ban this.
Just like Lux Matchup , if she plays agressive dodge Q and all in , her ultimate is not a problem for you.
dodge her poke , she'll be hard to kill as she usually picks barrier and uses her E in our Trades. but is not a problem at all, push and roam.
skill matchup , if she uses her R properly and u get stunned you're dead ,she can dodge our W+E+Q+A.A combo easily , she'll build mob boots probably to roam but can't outpush you.
easy matchup ,go for trade combo. push and roam whenever possible.
quite easy matchup , dodge his Q , and be agressive.
Another pain in the ass , but is still winable, dodge his skill's , the problem here is whenever u go for trade he'll just awnser with lower cdr and a Super sustain , he usually win the trade and can steal your broken ultimate.
Dodge her E , and be agressive, you counter her R , build zhonya is recommended.
he has strong early game all-in, and roams better than you ,but i don't find this matchup dificult unless you're against yamikaze.zhonya is a must.
be agressive, don't get hit by his w for free, if he tries to push lane with red card and q ,go for trade. go for trade before he uses his w . usually he won't answer in time.
dodge game rsrs, be agressive. push and roam.dodge her w and you're in good.
early morello, vladimir is skill matchup , agressive early game, ignite is a must, remember to ignite before his q to decrease lifesteal.
well,he's a all-in pain in the ass don't combo his clone please . time his cooldowns. late game if you're playing tanky build , he do nothing.
dodge his Q's and play agressive a bit harder than vel'koz.don't get stunned too.
a well timed R can counter him completely , zed is a all-in mid laner ,just be carefull with his roam.zhonya's....
skill matchup , but a good yasuo will probably wintrade, his w counters your Q so when starting a trade use E first then Q +AA.
he has two lifes 6 onwards , but is a easy matchup , don't get stunned though.
she'll push , dodge her e , it has a long animation , be agressive when it's not up , i haven't find this matchup dificult a singe time.
dodge Q. that's it , be agressive.
While she goes all-in , use your w when they're focusing her , u can either go for the frontline stun or backline stun. it works with most tanks that "Draws enemy attention" nautilus,alistair,rammus,tresh,shen etc...
Champion Build Guide
Ekko's trades are based in his passive , 3 hit to wintrade XD. he deals extra damage plus gets movespeed.
ekko w is the key to teamfighting , it can stun multiple targets , use your R wisely not only can it gives you another life as it deals massive damage. ekko's roaming is powerfull , you can set up dives easily.
Usual rune , for late game carry , i always use this when playing the tanky carry for late game extra damage.if you're thinking in the mid/late game use this.
Use this agains easy matchups(check matchup section)and when you want to play agressively ,remember to have it up when going for all-in.
ULTIMATE HUNTER OR RAVENOUS HUNTER.
i use ravenous hunter in almost all champions for extra sustain but this is useable , late game with the 10%cdr dragon , your R cdr is crazy .
Use this against teams with CC.
PRESENCE OF MIND.
for extra mana sustain against easy matchups , usefull against orianna and lux.
good rune for 2x1 outplays , extra sustain and gold income.
usefull against most ap based midlaners , especially diana and sylas matchup.
this rune is broken but i didn't find it very usefull.
extra mana sustain , not really needed.
extra late game ap . you want to go this rune unless you're playing jungle.
For the optional stats use CDR/Adaptive damage/last one is optional based in matchups.
gromp is kind a waste of time , unless u have nothing else to do.
when red buff is near raptor camp ,Q it and the camp to get full Sustain.
