Threats to Twisted Fate with this build

Threat
Low
High
Show all
Threat Champion Notes
1
Ahri Ahri is one of the match-ups that you will actually WIN, and not go even in, seeing how TF does not have many winning match-ups
1
Katarina You will win every match-up here as Katarina can't trade, just make sure to not take as much damage from her Q. If she jumps you, just Gold Card Q her and back off.
1
Akali Free win matchup, Akali can't trade with you, pre-6 you bully her, after 6 you can gold card and poke her all you want, just make sure to save gold card for her to jump you, cause otherwise she will and can kill you.
1
Karthus Get boots + ghost, when fighting pop ghost and just run around and he won't be able to hit any of his Qs and you'll win trades. Get Zhonyas midgame, to avoid Karthus R.
1
Kassadin Free win lane. You can crush him pre-6 and crush him after 6, if he jumps you, gold card Q him and back off and you'll win trades.
1
Fiddlesticks You hard counter him, he can not do anything, except with a suprise ulti... maybe.
1
Jarvan IV Simple matchup, sure he can poke for alot, but other than that he is pretty useless.

Why Twisted Fate?



I play Twisted Fate because he is fun, works in all roles and he is very strong as a team carry!
Twisted Fate shines in all lanes due to his low cooldown stun/slow and his map presence at level 6.
He also have a very high damage output throughout the whole game, in all roles!
I also enjoy Twisted Fate cause he got alot of tools to make plays!
Twisted Fate got a very simple kit, but yet very complex and unique - so many different playstyles! Lovely champion!

Summoner Spells & Keystones!



Summoner Spells!



-Midlane



Flash will be used for all matchups and all lanes/roles, so will not be mentioned as it is obvious.

Ghost have lately become one of the main summoners for Twisted Fate. With Ghost buffs and masteries to decrease summoner cooldowns, along with items, makes Ghost a very strong pick as an overall summoner. It helps your positioning, escape-capabilities and chasing. Generally the to-go summoner!

Ignite should be used in two specific matchups - and that is versus LeBlanc and Fizz. Both of them are "jump-in" and deal massive damage champions. With ignite you'll have kill pressure and if they go all in for you early on, you can hard punish them. If not kill them.

Teleport will mostly be used if you're versus a laner that you won't have any kill pressure on and someone that is focused on laning, e.g Orianna - constantly shoving in lane - You'll need to be able to get back to lane quickly, while at the same time not lose your roaming capabilities.

Heal / Barrier is used rarely, which one you pick is not that important. It is used when you know you will be nuked down over getting poked down!
Should not be considered a to-go spell.

Exhaust will be used vs Zed and Yasuo only, only to counter their all-ins. Some other specific matchups it can be utilized in aswell. Can be both aggressive and defensive.

Cleanse will be used iy you're playing against e.g Veigar that relies heavily on his stun and it often means death if you get stunned. So grab Cleanse so you can get out of that nasty stun.


-Toplane


Teleport will be used in all matchups, to allow you to roam to bottom lane aswell to get your items early and get back to lane quickly!


Jungle:


Smite is the only summoner to be used in the jungle, reasons are obvious, not possible without it.


ADC:


Heal will be used in ALMOST all matchups, it is the to-go-spell for ADC.

Cleanse can be used if you're confident in your ability to perform and not loose trades too often. Use vs Leona only.


Support:


Exhaust will be used all the time, you will need it! Trust me!


Keystones!

Midlane % Top AP % Support & AP Jungle:


Thunderlord's Decree will be used in aggressive playstyle as it gives a huge damage boost and your W with E active+Q insta-triggers it for a huge burst! Thunderlords is superior and gives you a well needed extra damage boost.

AD


Fervor of Battle will be the only choice here, it increases your basic attacks by ALOT in longer fights.

AD Jungle


Warlord's Bloodlust will be used when jungling - with the remake of it, it gives you a sustain boost along with well needed movespeed when ganking.

Abilities



(Passive) Loaded Dice


Loaded Dice is your passive ability. It grants you bonus gold upon killing a unit.
This passive does not seem good when reading it, but imagine you're at 150 cs and your enemy is at 150 cs you'll still be plenty gold ahead of your enemy.

(Q) Wild cards


Wild Cards is the ability you will use to damage your opponent down if you're playing AP. You will use Wild Cards either to clear waves or to poke your opponent, sometimes both. This is great for teamfights, as you can throw it into a group of enemies to severely damage the enemy team!

(W) Pick A Card


Pick A Card is the whole key to your kit, in all roles! You will use Pick A Card to poke, slow and stun the enemies! It's like 3 spells combined into 1. It is crucial to pick the right card at the right moment.

Blue card will deal the most damage out of the 3 cards aswell as restoring mana. Use this for poke and to maintain mana.

Red card will deal moderate damage but in AOE, it will also slow your opponents. This card will mainly be used for waveclear, but can also be used to poke the enemy by casting it on nearby minions.

Gold card will deal the lowest amount of damage, but will still be your main card when attacking champions. At max level the gold card will stun for 2 seconds with a 6 second cooldown (without CDR). Use this in combination with your (Q) Wild Cards

(E) Stacked Deck


Stacked Deck is a very strong passive ability, it deals bonus magic damage every 4 attacks, also increases your attack speed. This ability is key to AD / Attack Speed TF.
Use this in combination with Lich Bane proc+ Pick A Card for heavy damage.

(R) Destiny


Destiny is a great ultimate ability! With it you can roam across the map instantly. Use it combined with your stun card to ensure a free kill! Destiny can also be used to reveal your enemies position in lategame, if you suspect them doing baron, use your ulti. Destiny can also be used in lane, when facing a champion with stealth, such as Vayne, this can really throw them off if you gold card them in their invis before they get the chance to break it.

Item choices


Items


So, what items to pick? What items are needed and what items are flexible? And why?

I will go over some of the few essential items that you should go for every game and also explain why!

The items mentioned below are the few special ones that are standing out from other items for Twisted Fate.

AP:

Lich Bane



Twisted Fate might be the only champ that builds this every single game when playing AP!
The reason for this is the synergy it has with his spells, to increase his damage output by a bunch it is normally built early on in the game! But don't get me wrong, it is not a mandatory first buy! If needed, delay to third item, you might lack damage but you're far better off surviving than dealing slightly more damage.

Rod of Ages


Rod of Ages have always been a strong pick for Twisted Fate, since he is fairly squishy and he lacks mobility, so Rod of Ages help. And now since the buff of Rod of Ages and the nerf of other items, Rod of Ages is a very strong pick for first item.

Zhonyas Hourglass


Even tho Zhonyas isn't really mandatory it is really a to-go item in all games, except you're way way better than your opponents and do not do any mistakes whatsoever. Zhonyas will allow you to overextend for the gold card pick, then use Zhonyas and allow your team to follow up while you stand there, shining bright.

AD:

Blade of the Ruined King


Blade of the Ruined King is a great item, as it gives you lifesteal along with more damage + attack speed. Will be bought first as ADC TF.

Rapid Firecannon


Rapid Firecannon is a great item for AD TF, it allows you to get a pick on an enemy or stun an escaping enemy. It also have great stats for AD TF, which all benefit him.

Runaan's Hurricane


Rapid Firecannon is a great item for AD TF, it allows you to get a pick on an enemy or stun an escaping enemy. It also have great stats for AD TF, which all benefit him.

Skill Combos


Here I will show you the most common combos when going for either poke or a kill.

Normal poke combo: Stacked Deck + Pick A Card

Maximum damage poke: Stacked Deck + Pick A Card + Wild Cards

Ultimate ganking: Destiny + Pick A Card + Wild Cards

Jumping an enemy: Pick A Card + Flash + Wild Cards + Stacked Deck

Running Ignite?: Pick A Card + Stacked Deck + Wild Cards + Ignite + Basic Attacks

Gameplay



Midlane:
In midlane you can both play aggressive and very defensive, depending on your preferred playstyle, I prefer going hard.
Level 1-3: Just farm, your Q will only be on level 1, so you won't deal any damage. If vs melee, go ham with basics to get the early lead.
Level 4-6: From here on out, you can start trading with your opponent, depending on what outcome you want. When you see the enemy wasting a spell with a CD longer than 5 seconds on a minion wave, go for the harass and back out right after and win the trades
Level 7-10: Your goal now is to shove lane and then head straight to bot or top for ulti gank, or just run in and gold card if they're really overextended. Get fed and get your team fed.
Level 11-18: As the game progresses your job is to catch people off-guard, you will be very squishy throughout the game, so play it safe and gold card someone thats mispositioned. When you have 2-3 items and see an ADC farming top/bot alone, feel free to ulti TP and get a freekill. Also, if you're not playing from superbehind, feel free to splitpush whenever your ultimate is up, you will MELT towers late game and have super map presence.

Top lane:

Level 1-3: Depending on wether you're playing AD or AP you will have different objectives, I recommend going AD top 90% of the times, only go AP if you're vs another AP. If you're AD 1-3 is where you set the grounds for the whole laning phase, go super aggressive, don't mind missing out on a few last hits, aslong as you get the harass down on the enemy early. Your W and E in combination will melt people early. So simply basic all the time as soon as the enemy goes for a lasthit.
If you're playing AP, do the complete opposite! Just farm, farm and farm, your goal is to get Catalyst as soon as possible, so you can sustain trading with the enemy.
Level 4-6: AD: If everything worked out 1-3 you should be punishing the enemy heavily. He should fear you. Just keep doing what you're doing, it will only get better with your items!
AP: If you have Catalyst now, feel free to start trading, catalyst will sustain you, but still your objective is to not die and farm and gank mid when ulti is up.
Level 7-10: As for both AD and AP, laning phase is starting to loosen up a bit, people are starting to roam etc. You will still stay on your lane until the enemys first tower is down.
As soon as the tower is down, go mid and help out, ulti gank bot. But always keep an eye on toplane incase the enemy toplaner attempts to push.
Level 11-18: For AP; refer to the midlane 11-18; for AD, play as if you're an ADC, stay in the backline and attack whomever you can reach. If you see the enemy ADC farming, ulti and kill him. There is no ADC that can 1v1 TF late game, as TF have self-peel, so they will probably be dead before the stun duration is over. Unless you're behind.

Jungle:
Level 1-3: With the new jungle and Twisted Fate not being the strongest jungler, you do not want to do the small camps, so go for red/blue start to blue/red to gromp/krugs.
Level 4-6: Keep ganking alot - look for overextended enemies, seeing how with a gold card it is mostly a free kill.
Level 7-10: At this time you can just roam everywhere and take camps along the way, you should be cleaning them up pretty fast.
Level 11-18: If you're AD Twisted Fate - play like an ADC, but you can get picks if you got Rapid Firecannon. Play mostly safe and get picks. If AP - play for picks.

Support:
Level 1-3: Just peel for your ADC and stun and poke and put out damage, they will fear the stun card, so run up towards them and let the cards cycle and observe the enemy ADC loose out on lasthits.
Level 4-6: Same strategy, just keep making the enemy loose lasthits and go for stun cards, if they're overextended, go for the kill.
Level 7-10: Start roaming, that level 6 ulti mid is suprising for alot of midlaners, make sure to find out if they've used their flash before you go, so you can know where to position. It is really appreciated by midlaners to get carried by a stunbot.
Level 11-18: You will be a CC-bot, with slows and stuns flying left and right, making people terrified, peeling for your whole team.

ADC:
Level 1-3: Farm and trade heavily if they overextend, you'll be suprised by the damage you do with your W and a couple of basics.
Level 4-6: Farm and harass ALOT, you will be stronger than the enemy adc cause you have a stun meanwhile they're just auto-attacking.
Level 7-10: Ulti gank, get fed, this is where ADC TF shines, you can 1v1 anyone once you got a few items, abuse this.
Level 11-18: Go for picks across the map, if you see anyone alone when you ulti, go for it, freelo.

Tips & Tricks


Double gold cards!


At 0%, 10%, 35% and 40% you can pull out another gold card directly after the CD finishes on your Pick A Card!
Look at the video I made below for more insight!

Early game farming


During laning phase you need to know how to lasthit properly and how to use your spells to secure lasthits, especially under towers! Hop into a custom game to practice this!

Pick your battles!


Do not go for poke and trades every chance you get, pick them out carefully to ensure that you come out as the winner! Examples where you should go in are when the enemy is going for a lasthit(Preferably the cannon minion as they'll spend more effort into that one), or right after they've used their only slow/stun on minions, or wasted their mobility spells to try to go on the offensive, or when you know their ultimate is on cooldown, or when you know their jungler is at toplane

Not thinking of these things, espescially as Twisted Fate can and will get you killed. Twisted Fate is not a strong duelist in the early game so pick your battles well and do not go in for longer fights.

How to trade


When you're trading, either just throw a (Q) Wild Cards or to make sure your (Q) hits and to deal even more damage then basic attack minions until your (E) Stacked Deck is up, then pull out a gold card with Pick A Card and throw it at the enemy and while they're stunned throw your Wild Cards at their face and then back off. There is nothing your enemy can do to defend from this, unless they can dodge the gold card with champions such as Master Yi Alpha Strike or Fizz Playful / Trickster, make sure to bait those spells out before you throw your gold card.

Play carefully


Twisted Fate is very weak to ganks, so make sure to always have a well placed ward in the bush for safety!
If the enemy jungler is missing, do not push as much, or shove the lane and back to base.

Roam alot!


As soon as you get level 6, look for ganks. Twisted Fates global presence is what makes him shine, so take advantage of that. Put fear into your enemies, win your allies lanes for them! Twisted Fate does not win the lane, Twisted Fate wins the game.

Remember to use your ultimate in teamfights


You can use Destiny in teamfights to reposition and to put fear in your enemies, aswell as reveal stealthed / flanking enemies.


When you're not doing anything!


When you're not doing anything, e.g if you've just cleared the wave or too scared to farm, go around a corner just to get out of sight, just to put fear in the enemy, not knowing where you are or if you're going to use your ulti, people up to Master won't even care to time your ulti, roughly than estimating its time to 1 min cd. So rather than standing around, put fear into your enemies! Your ultimate can be used even when it is on cooldown :-)

Move alot!


Between basics, between spells, between everything. MOVE MOVE MOVE MOVE, it is so important to mastering Twisted Fate, never stand still, standing still you're an easy target, running around with your high movespeed you'll make the enemy nervous cause they never know when you'll turn towards them. It creates alot of pressure, increases your damage output, allows you to dodge skillshots easier, since you're already moving and it looks cool :p
