EASY LANE - DODGE Q AND W, PARRY W IF POSSIBLE AND ENGAGE WITH A SUCCESSFUL RIPOSTE. Aatrox is pretty easy to deal with : There are a lot of CC that you can parry so the difficulty is to know which CC you should parry. Keep in mind that his 3rd Q is thougher than the 2nd which is thougher than the first : So always try to parry the last Q at the start. But the W is the best thing to parry because you deny his combo W+Q. Fun match-up.
HARD LANE - STAY SAFE, DON'T OVEREXTEND DURING THE LANING PHASE, TAKE CARE OF OTHER THREATS IN THE ENNEMY TEAM. Akali is a hard champ to deal with : She has no CC, and the smoke screen is annoying. -You can hit her (vitals) while she is in her smoke. -Try to parry her combo : When she jump on your with E or with R and AA. -If you are both full life, she wins trades so try to play in team.
ULTRA SKILL MATCH-UP People tend to think that Camille and Fiora are two very complicated characters to master, and often they compare the two. In game, it's a real battle of the titans. You can, and you have to always parry her E : Take care, she can bait you and wait when she is on the wall: you have to get away from her to be within reach, but not too close so that you can have time to parry. If you parry her E, the trade is in your favor. Take care, if she ults you and you ult her, She can stand by a wall created by her R to counter the vitals,so only R if she does not have it. Take care of her Q, this thing hurts ! A nice thing to do is to get away from her when her Q is charged so she loose it. She will try to E to get you but you will parry it, so she loose Q and E and you win the trade. Good luck !
SIMPLEST LANE FOR FIORA - DESTROY THE GAME ! Cho'Gath is the best champ to face when you play Fiora. His CC are really easy to parry and your passive detroys him. You can poke him for free, and when he's not to close of his turret parry one of his CC, ult, and get a kill ! You destroy him early, and it's worse in the late game: the biggest tank of the game is getting destroyed by your R. abuses the character's weaknesses.
HARD LANE - HANDLE WITH CARE ! Darius is a really strong champ during laning phase, and a powerful champ over that. - Parry his E and you can try to trade him. -If you can't parry his E, then parry just after he grabs you so you deny a W (wait just a bit because he launches an AA before a W.). -If he's about to ult you, you can obviously parry his R. -You can dash into him when he is using Q to deny his heal, but running in the opposite direction is an idea. Be patient and wait for an opportunity to go into him. Craft boots early because he's fast.
ANNOYING BUT NOT SO HARD - DODGE HIS CLEAVERS, TAKE IGNITE AND RUSH EXECUTIONER'S CALLING. Mundo is pretty annoying with his cleaver, and will just poke you with these. If you can parry it, it's a great thing for you. You should try to make him use his R (by pretending you are going all-in), and when he launches, you just just run away, and then when it's finished you can go and destroy him with R. He has no hard CC so use W to slow him/hit a vital. Later in the game, you have to be with your team because you can deal crazy amount of damages and anti-heal him : if you are not there, your team won't kill him !
HARD MATCH-UP Before level 6, he will be really annoying with his poke. Just stay safe and farm. When you hit lvl 6, you can be mor confident and try to kill him. Remember that you can destroy the barrels ! His fruit will remove your E slow or your W slow, so wait for him to use it before you use your other slow. Parry his barrels or his Grasp Auto.
EASY LANE You should not play with him lvl 1 'cause he will beat you up. But with your parry at lvl 2, you will beat him. Try to parry his Q, not his E, and be sure to parry his Q when Garen is hitting you, not when is his running at you because he will try to bait you. You can also W to parry his R if he's jumping on you. With your R you destroy him.
ANNOYING MATCH-UP Gnar is a champ that will poke you when he is tiny and will break your neck when he is fat. Over that, his jump when he's tiny will help him to escape. You should try to parry his stuns. When he's big, stay safe, and when he's tiny, try to make him use his jump then go in when it's on CD. You could buy Stridebreaker to catch up if the ennemy team has other ranged champs.
EASY LANE Gwen is really annoying against range champs because her barrier blocks everything. But fortunately you are not a ranged champ ! So you will not be blocked by this. You can poke her easily, and go in when you want. Before 6, parry her scissors. After 6, parry her 3rd wave of needles or parry scissors if it's on cooldown. Take care, her ult deals A LOT of damages, you have to parry the 3rd wave.
HARD LANE Heimerdinger will easily poke you and if you go in, his nest of turrets will blow you up. Just stay safe, disguise yourself as a farmer, and wait until your jungle come to help you or wait until you can move out of your lane.
HARD LANE Illaoi is such an annoying champ, but if you know how to play against her you will beat her. First of all, DESTROY THESE TENTACLES ! When you can, get these tentacles, but don't be greedy. You HAVE to dodge her E, use your Q if necessary. You also have to dodge her Q. Yes, there are a lot of things to dodge, but you know what? There is another ! Her ult is REALLY strong : You will have to run away when she ults, don't even try to fight her. If she does not have her ult and if she has no E and she is not near a turret, you can all-in her with you R. If you are getting kills and more CS than her, it will be easier. But saty patient.
SKILL MATCH UP IN YOUR FAVOR Irelia is a skilled champ, and you will have to be alert. Parry her E, it's easy. If you parry it at lvl 2/3, GO IN ! You will destroy her. But care, if she is stacking her passive she will deal a lot of damages. Try to engage her when you succesfully parry a E, then go in and kill her. If her passive is stacked, you should wait before engaging. You can also parry her R if she does not have her E.
VERY EASY LANE Now, Jarvan is almost always a jungle champ. But some people (like me) like to play him top. Jarvan is very easy to deal with : Parry his E-Q, and you will counter a lot of his damage AND his stun AND will stun him, and because his engage and his damages are based on this, you will destroy him. Over that, you can Q out of his R so it's useless for him.
SKILL MATCH-UP, DEPENDS ON THE JAX PLAYER For some Fiora players, Jax is a hard match-up, and for others it's an easy match-up. The fact is that it depends of the Jax player. His E can be activated when he want so try to adapt to his style : some Jax players wait until the end so they will make you use your parry before their E, some other players will try to E before you parry, and some others, the most annoying, are doing both. Try to analyse how he launches E and then counter him. If you parry him you win the trade, if not you loose it. Good luck !
LANE BULLY CHAMP Jayce is not often played, i rarely see him, but when i do i remember it ! Jayce is really annoying, he can poke you easily and will deal a lot of damage at melee when you will go into him. You can't trade him during the laning phase, so you will have to farm, farm, and farm until you can go on other lanes. I maybe should have placed him in "Major", but you can just stay passive on this lane.
HARD LANE Kalista top is not often played, but it hurts ! She can very easily hit and run and will just run away while hitting you. You can try to predict when she will remove her spears from you, but it's hard as it's instantaneous. You should just wait for you jungle to help you, farm, or try to trap her by waiting in a bush.
EASY LANE I know, Kayle is really bad at the start of the game, every laner will destroy her early. BUT she will play safe and you will not kill her because she will just farm and wait. So it's a really easy lane but she scales very well and will be super strong at the end of the game. Try to make her back and make her loose a lot of minions.
HARD LANE Kennen is really annoying and we free-poke you. You have to count how many stacks he has on you to parry his 3rd charge that will stun you. You have to wait until you can go out of this lane, you can't do a lot of this against Kennen during laning phase.
EVEN LANE There a not a lot of things to say, It's not hard, but not so easy. You have to parry his hook, and deal all your damages when he does not have his mount to kill him.
HARD LANE Yes, Lee Sin top is uncommon, but sometimes i see it. Well, he will poke you hard with his ranged ability, and when you are low enough he will go in and kill you. Keep your W to counter his burst when he jumps on you, and after 6 keep it to parry his R. You should play safe and wait for help or just farm.
HARD LANE Malphite will easily poke you with his rocks, so you will have to be far from him. You NEED to parry his R when he uses and, and go all in after that. If he rushes bramble and is getting tanky, don't fight him without parrying his ult and using your ult. The problem with Malphite is not his laning phase, but the ults he will throw in your team during team fights. The good point is that you outscale him.
ANNOYING BUT EASY LANE Maokai is pretty easy to deal with if you parry Q/E. But he can poke you with the little seeds, so just try to farm as he will try to poke you and will stay safe.
VERY EASY LANE Mordekaiser is really easy to face with Fiora if you know how to face him, BUT if you don't know how you have to face him, it will be a pain in the *ss. First of all, you have to stay out of the range of his Q, as he will poke you with it. You will have to parry his E, but he won't launch him if you are too close of him. You have to do this : 1- Stay far so he wont reach you with Q and he will E because you wont hit a W, you are too far 2- Jump in his E with your Q or just walk in, walking to him, and parry while you are using Q to get close of him so you can have the range to stun him 3- Launch everything you have ! If you can, keep you Q to dodge his Q as it is easy to dodge. If you are failing because you have not stunned him by parrying a E or even if you stunned him he lands Qs, run away ! His passive does a lot of damages. If he ults you, it's great because he can't run away so use your R and eat him.
HARD LANE Nasus will try to freeze the lane, don't let him do that ! Nasus will just farm and get stacks, so you should try to make him back : Try to poke him with your Q, hitting vitals, and parry when he uses W/E/Q. You should roam when you can't farm as you can't do a lot of things if he is farming.
EASY LANE Easy lane, parry his CCs and it's a win.
HARD LANE She counters your dashes with her barrier, but you can parry her R or her charge. The problem is that if you ult her, she can E OR R to push you away and then she just runs away. It's pretty hard to deal with her, but if she does not have her CDs you can beat her.
VERY HARD LANE Renekton is really strong early, you just can't face him so just farm and don't die. Just outscale him
SKILL MATCH UP IN HER FAVOR Riven has two stun, she will try to make you use your W so she can go in. Try to parry her stun so you can beat her, but take care, her R deals so much damages. Play safe and wait her to make mistakes.
HARD LANE His flamethrower will be really annoying ! Just play safe, you outscale him. Parry his E.
SPECIAL LANE Ryze is not good early, so try to destroy him. Parry when you think he will root you. then go in. The bad point is that he can poke you and will scale well.
EVEN LANE Try to parry his CC, don't engage lvl 1. If you are losing lane, just wait and farm 'cause you outscale him.
EASY LANE Just parry his taunt, and shred him because he's a tank. Ping when he is casting R ! If you can't parry his taunt, parry his grasp AA.
EVEN LANE Don't chase him, parry his throw. It depends of the singed player tbh.
EASY LANE You shred tanks. Parry his Q or his R, it's really easy. Poke his vitals and when it's possible, go in.
EVEN LANE It's very hard early, he destroys you. Don't die before6, just wait and stay safe, then you can try to trade. You have to dodge his Q
EASY LANE Wait until 3, don't eat free poke, then go on him and eat him ! Care with the mushrooms. Parry his Q if possible.
EVEN LANE Parry his Q, care with his strong early. You outscale. If he ults you, just run and wait. Then go in !
HARD LANE His R is really annoying, you can try to take Ignite. Poke him, and outscale ! During laning, he can go under tower so take care. If he goes under tower, you can run around the tower with your Q and parry his damages so he will die of the tower.
PRETTY HARD LANE Poke his vitals. When he E you, Parry ! You can see a shield around him when he is using E. You should try to take him down with your jungle as he scales well.
HARD ! Wait until lvl 3, then only engage if you can follow her. You have to parry her knockback, if she hits you with it, just go away.
EVEN LANE Parry his Q to stun him, but care, he will use it again after your stun so stun him, land 1 AA or Q then go away to dodge the second Q, then re-engage. With your R you destroy him. If he goes under tower with R, save time by stunning him and turn around the tower.
HARD LANE If you fall behind him, you loose the lane. Play safe and wait him to make mistakes.
EASY LANE - LAND RIPOSTE AND IT'S A WIN Just W on his tornado and destroy him. Buils tabis.
EASY LANE Build anti heal at lvl6 Try to poke him as much as you can, save Q to escape from his prison. You have to dodge his E.
Yuumi is great !
