PERMABAN HIM. I can't even give you tips against him, because he is my permaban. NEVER PLAY KASSA INTO ZED.
Extreme early game, outroams you, oneshots you before you react. Rush Seeker's and always signal when he goes missing, and after lvl 11 it will be free win, you outscale him.
Dodge. Just dodge, impossible lane even with all the Armor from Seeker's and Tabis. Try roaming, you won't solo kill her before 16.
If this stupid champion is ever picked mid. DODGE. Same as irelia, you won't solo kill her, and he is even more punishing early than Irelia.
Same as Irelia and Panth, almost impossiblee. Rush Seeker's and Tabis, after lvl 11 you might be able to kill him. Outroam him.
Your general AD champion which counters Kassadin. BUT It's not as bad as Talon or Zed. Depends a lot on player skill. Rush Seeker's and after lvl 6 if you dodge tornados you are fine. Try poking him down. Also whenever he Q you, teleport sideways and E>Q combo. If he gets too close, trade with W and run away with R if needed. After lvl 11 it's free win.
She is an AP immobile Mage, but is still quite bad for Kassadin. Before lvl 6 it will be living hell. Don't ever try trading her before 6. After you can kill her with ult. Dodge her E with R sideways, E>Q and then R again, and W. With this you completely outtraded her. Also, watching cooldowns is really important against her. If her abilites down, after 6 its free kill.
Same as neeko. Literally the same, just a bit harder because she kites better with ult, BUT she is not as heavy early as Neeko.
Hard because she is tanky. Just play smart, outroam, don't get hit by her spells. Be careful with trades because her shields win all of them early.
Rarely picked so don't know much about her. Really depends on the Cassiopea player. Could be 3-5 on difficulty.
Skill matchup. Early he is stronger. Also he is quite tanky for some reason. Try outroaming him. Dodge his abilites, be smart,win.
Play smart, outscale. You are pretty much on par with trades, don't get hit by ult, and don't turret dive him EVER.
Don't trade before lvl 6. Play smart, and also ALWAYS PING WHEN GOES MISSING. Nukes botlane.
Haven't played enough against her, but it's pretty much a skill matchup.
Haven't played enough into her. She can devastate you with stun + ult. Be careful.
Kind of hard, between 3-4. After 6 you can kill her.
Kind of easy. BUT PLAY SMART. Watch for shroud cooldown. After 6, you can all in her if her shroud is on cooldown.
Haven't played this matchup enough, but should be pretty easy.
Again haven't played this matchup enough. But overall easy.
Absorb much of his dmg with Q, whenever he roots you, R him right after the duratione ends and do full combo. Suprisingly enough, he wins short, and you win long trades. Feel free to use multiple R-s for constant dps, he will try to do long trades but thanks to your R you win those trades.
Haven't played it enough but overall easy.
Dodge abilites -> Win game. Get hit by them? Lose game. That simple.
You overall spank him real hard, just watch out for his R. You melt his Voidlings with E, outtrade with Q and oneshot him.
Not played it enough but should be easy.
Not played enough but should be easy.
Not played enough but should be easy. Outtrade with Q, disengage when he has Red Q.
After 6 free game. You can escape his E whenever you want with R and oneshit him.
Free game after 6. You hard engage him, and he can't stop you.
Free after 6.
You cancel his W with Q, free win after 6.
Free win after 6.
Katarina into Kassadin? LMAO You cancel her ult with Q, win every meele trade with W and AA, outtrade her Q with ur Q. Just save your Q for her ult always after 6!
