NathanPyke's Guide to Pyke

By NathanPyke
Pyke in General
Hello my name is NathanPyke and im a streamer on facebook(fb.gg/nathanpykefb) I also have twitch(twitch.tv/nathanpyke)

So lets start off with the Pros and Cons of Pyke


Pros
- Good Burst
- Mobile
- Good Sutstain
- Heavy CC

Cons
- Very Squishy
- Outclassed by other supports
- High Cooldowns
- Team Dependent
Pyke Support
So the early laning phase will always determine if your gonna snowball or not , Because you will always be reliant on your fellow adc.

You need to snowball as EARLY as possible so the way to do this is to always level 2 aggressive engage. This wouldn't always work at any pair of supports so look at your matchups. Regarding the level 2 aggressive engage you will hit level 2 when 1st wave and 2nd wave melee minions die so always use your stacks on the 2nd wave melee minions

First thing to build is either mobility boots or go for damage you want to be able to control the map and help your team with a gold lead check lanes if they are gankable and try to keep an eye on your adc and jungler.

So lets just say you successfully took control of the map with Vision and Kills for your team at this stage of the game choose a carry to get fed like example a hecarim jungle you can help him invade the enemy jungler so he/she can't contest dragons or herald and try to end the game as early as you can.

If you failed to take control of the map with Kills and Ganks you can compensate this with vision and try to track everyone in the enemy team always ping summoners if the use it and at this stage your under leveled because of the repeated failed ganks so the only thing you can do is follow your adc and try to protect him/her as much as possible.

If your behind and getting flamed don't worry all it takes is one team fight to get you back on the lead always try to land your abilities and ultimate its okay to miss just time everything properly.
Pyke Mid
Pyke mid is very strong but since the recent nerfs his sustain got hit completely to mitigate damage so you have to play safely and try to chunk the enemy laners health if you can.

So the laning phase begins with wave 1 you could try to hook the enemy laner in since you have more damage potential with hail of blades you can still go for a normal level 2 aggressive play but be wary of the matchup.

Now the only thing you need to do is CAMP any lane of your choosing because you don't get ahead in CS its to participate in FIGHTS because the only problem your gonna face in mid is CS because pyke has no wave clear. so you need to either rush items and call help for your jungler to help you push in midlane.
New Bruiser Pyke
So the laning phase starts off normal depending on the matchup you can use this bruiser build on tank comps and comps with heavy barriers although you can build serpents fang using the normal lethality build this just ensures that you could do damage to tanks.

from bruisers to tanks you still can't 1 v 1 a dps one like example (darius,sett,riven) stridebreaker just gives an opportunity to slow all targets(while dealing small portions of damage) to help your team follow up on mobile targets

its strong and fun!
How to Counter Pyke?
Use a champion that can FULLY use the power of PRESS THE ATTACK and use mobility/heavy cc champions

Why mobility champions ? because pyke's hook as a 0.1 cast time where he stops and throws his hook with mobility you can avoid it easily almost all of his abilities

What if he uses aftershock in a heavy cc matchup? if his adc is immobile always go for the adc because he can't do anything without his damage dealer but be careful he still deals a decent amount of damage
