Threats & Synergies
Don't Trade with Ashe Unless you have item advantage or Skill's advantage if you cant dodge her Ult bang you're Dead :P!
she lacks Mobility so you can kite her to Death ,Not hard matchup as soon as you get enough atack/speed you will win the trade
As you cant really disturb his catching he will win the trade simply wait for a Good chance or gank to beat him.
Easy matchup simply kite him to death.
the Hardest but the easier,as he needs a high skillshot skill as long as he misses you you're pretty favorable to win the trade,be carefull with his early game burst.
Strong early game potential she can be really boring in the early game just wait for a good chance early game as soon as you finish 3 items you're pretty favorable to win the trade.
Different from most i find him easily ,simply dodge his skills and kite him to death.
Freaking strong early game till level 6 can be really boring dealing with her but you can change it in the mid/late game just dodge her ult and you will be fine.
not many fight agains her but she can be really disturbing,she can cancel your Ult with her Barrier ,she can cancel your Q as well and she can harass you from far,get near enough and kite her.
I don't know why but i always get destroyed by a tristana in early game,higher AA range,runaway skill from your kite,really disturbing champion/bring the game to mid/late get some item's and you will be fine
mobility lack dodge his ult and kite him to death.
Stay away from the walls ,she can just E you away from her,dont let her farm!personal opnion she's the only adc that beats you late game.
if high skilled just farm early game she can harass u with Q+passive,and run away by locking you with E.
Can be quite boring playing against it because too many CC though it's not that troublesome. just don't give a facecheck once you buy lifesteal it becomes easy.
bardo can be troublesome because of his CC and sustain ,dont give him an easy time low hp supports are mostly bad against you.
Dodge his Q,and you can kite him like hell.
He can be the most troblesome and the easiest as he can block damage but your Spear still lays on him with the shield.
Dodge her Q and she's probably dead easy matchup.
She can be boring because of her W ,and early on but mid/late will get easier
Too much CC hard Early game needs good dodging skills,really boring be carefull farm and depending on the adc dont try a trade.
Easy dodge her skillshot and kill her not even the shield can save her, maybe her ult.
Baaaad matchup if a good zyra she won,t let you farm ,dodge the CC witch are not that hard and she can die easily as soon as you get Lifesteal.(Be carefull early game).
he's not that bad because you can wait for his "2 life to pass and take out as many spear's you laid on him.
Easy kite her not the adc cause she can't heal herself.
a bit boring early game but can be easy killed with a Blade of ruined king witch can be made as 1 item.
Kalista is a really good champion With A long Time to Master it, i found her an basic but Hard champion with high kiting potential and Peaks at 1v2 ,she can carry games alone for sure if you manage to play it correctly.
The difference between one Adc to Another Is Their Farming Skills,Even if you are 0/2 and the other adc has 2 kills but his farm is way lower up to 30 the game is still balanced.
Kalista Kite can be used both to defend as to atack,along with vayne one of the best champion to kite offensively ,she's also really hard to get ganked Post-6 because of her ult that can be used in many ways either to stop the gank or to save a suport that got all focus on,as well her W will tell you if it finds some lost jungler around the map :P .
So Kalista for me is=Powerfull kiting potential/unlimited warding and a life saver the only thing she lacks is CC and life(Of course) So geting a "Focus Me" tanky Suport will get to win 90% of the trades.
All of these can give kalista a Strong Early game potential, that in my opnion she lacks a lot,just farm early game and wait for a good chance to atack,blitz/tresh=hook,alistar/blitz=knockup,leona=CC,all of these will grant you a good chance to lay your spears,usually you're gonna win the only ones that you shouldnt really trade this way are jhin and Draven because of their burst ,jinx have a high early game burst but she lacks mobility and probably wont try a trade,= jhin and Draven can turn around the trade with his high burst.
In Late levels there's a trick with kalista that's the AA+Q combo (doubleJump) you can do either to the front as to the back train that a lot is very helpfull.
I Personally dont use q for harass i use AA or i dont harass ,cause kalista is very reliable on her Q either To run or to get a kill.
Her farming pottential is good as weel as she can secure farm with her E without wasting mana.
Learn to kite with keyboard.
Learn to use items(Though you will only used ruined king but its a really important item.)
Learn how a suport and a jungle Works.(Play some games or watch some videos)
Dont try to copy someone play your own style getting tips are ok but copying is just Stupid.
This is the thing i teach most my friends is farming,take a time and train farm without runes/talents and skills =that's freaking hard ,and try to never miss minions ,also get different wave's forms so ask a friend to help.
A easy way of farming is get the first 3 minions,when it get's to the big one farm the minions magician and last hit the big one,whenever i did 6.7 higher Cs per minute i won the match or finished as the mvp with most kills or whatever.
