you have to be waaaay fucking better than this person to function properly in lane. The only way to have a chance at winning lane is to cripple their CS, for you to have perfect CS, and to always be aware of where he could be so he doesn't roam or kill you. Any advantage will make it very hard for you.
This fucker roams like a mongol. Just don't let him exert more power and control on the map, and at 20 minutes you can have a greater impact on the game. He outtrades you early, just focus on not giving gold and getting as much gold as possible.
She can completely outmaneuver you if she plays right. Take Cleanse and get Merc Treads, places soldiers near her when she Qs the wave, and wait for her R before you use your own when you Shuriman Shuffle her.
She is a great foe for you. You need to rush Merc Treads so that her combo doesn't fuck you up too fast. Be mindful of her Qs because she can E and set up perfectly to get ganked, or just combo you to fucking death. Plus side is, after about Mid Game, you just fucking ruin her if you play well.
The game is going to be about awareness. If you don't let her hit you with her Q, and you don't let her trap you with her W, you will win. She is just like you, a Hyper Carry Mage, but her kit is much more reliant on poisoning you than your kit is on your soldier placement. You can beat the shit out of her if you are better.
Unless this Ahri is a VERY good Ahri, you are not in too much trouble. However, if she pushes the way she can, and controls the lane and map accordingly, she is a pain in the ass.
Fuck this guy, you are going to have to stay at max range. Just CS perfectly and remain at length to avoid him getting his entire stupid kit on you. Good news is, if you do not get hit by his Q, his kit becomes much less powerful. Be mindful of his cooldowns, and remember he's a dick who can all in for no reason. Awareness is the game, just be aware of his kit and his cooldowns.
Honestly, the threat with LB is ganks. She and you have similar capacities, but she can fuck off when she feels like it waaay better. Her capacity to kill you is dependent on having gank potential, and her capacity to escape is dependent on her cooldowns. She is much more weak than you'd think. Be aware of her jungler and yours, if your jungler wants to gank, get her to all in you, then she is fucked. She HAS to snowball to be worth anything, so you can tease this fucker and ruin her game if you play properly.
This is, as weird as it sounds, a skill matchup. BUT, it is only a skill matchup by use of awareness and game knowledge. Build properly, do NOT push and instead use your mana to punish him for every single fucking CS he gets close to get. You can be so annoying if you play well. So just remember, you can fuck with him SO MUCH very early on, then as he gets level 3 and so, he can sort of hurt you a lot. poke him as much as possible pre level 3 and pre level 6.
All you need to do is these two things: push as hard as you can since he cannot push as much as you due to mana and cooldowns. Second, stay at the side of the minion wave so that he has to decide whether to use his mana to poke you or get CS. You can shit on this guy.
Set up a slowpush, he can't fight you. He seems to be annoying as shit, but there is something you can enjoy here. He is an all in melee champion, and you can fuck him in the skull if he is not as good as you. You need to use your Ws around minions he will dash to, and use your Q when he tries to leave or if he is going all in, don't use it too soon in a trade. Your ult makes his ult a liability to use.
set up a slowpush, poke him and control lane for the first few levels. You have more power than him to dominate lane until he gets his combo. You can poke him out of lane and outtrade him with proper positioning and wave management.
He is just an annoying fuck but you can basically shit on him after 20 minutes no matter what. You outscale him, if you are a better player, doesn't matter how ahead he gets. Go ignite, be mindful of his E, and try to poke him out as best you can.
She is pretty fucking annoying. If you don'y punish her early, and your jungler doesn't help, and HER jungler fucks with you, you can be in trouble. Essentially, pre level 6, you need to fuck with her as much as you can, and dodge her Qs. If you do those two things, you can win lane. Pretty even matchup in lane, but her kill potential is higher earlier on, be careful.
IF you properly position yourself, you can basically fuck with this guy as much as you want. His cage is how he can take you down, so if you position yourself perfectly, you can do whatever you want. Slow push, Hard push, poke him, anything. You control this lane if you are positioned well.
She is not going to be able to fuck you up if you are aware of her ball. As long as you know where it is, and what she could do with it, and don't let yourself be in danger, she is NO threat to you. Don't let the ball too close to you, and watch out for her movement, it could show her intentions.
Be mindful of his stupid annoying abilities. Same thing as with Xerath, don't let him hit both you and the minions, and try and dodge his shit best you can. All you have to do is hardpush, wait for 6 and then you can fuck his head with your jungler.
she is a garbage version of azir. fuck her. You do everything better if you are as good as her.
If you position yourself properly are aware of a few things, this is a free fucking lane. Here are those things. Where his jungler is, his Gold Card, and his Roaming Potential. You can punish him whenever these things are not present. He is no threat to you unless you are playing poorly. Position yourself well, punish him as much as possible, and you will dominate this lane.
Dodge her Qs and shit because they shred over time, and be mindful of her E and W combo. To win this lane, push as hard as you can, and punish her as much as possible. Soldier positioning will completely ruin her life if done properly.
Just wait. You fuck his mind late game. ONLY thing you need to be mindful of, is his E, his CC. It is his only opportunity to hurt you. Fuck him up.
He is no threat to you in lane, BUT in teamfights, he is one of the rare champions who can exert as much dominance as you. However, you can dominate lane and cause him to never be able to fight like you. Set up for ganks by slowpushing and punishing, or hurt his CS with hardpushing if you don't fear their jungler.
A good Katarina can slice your fucking retinas off before you even know she moved. However, this does not matter if you remain aware of the positioning of her daggers, and remain aware of her Cooldowns. You can punish her really hard if you remain at max range and poke her well.
YOU CAN FUCKING DESTROY THIS LOSER. All you have to do is set up a slowpush, and shit on him anytime he tries to get CS while you're at max range. You need to position yourself around him PERFECTLY, use your soldiers to starve him like the dirty fish he is, and you are undefeatable.
this guy is a fucking garbage can if you play well. All you need to do is hardpush from max range, he can't touch you and he can't push as fast as you. Your late game outshines his, and you can just get Morello and shit down his throat.
she is a dumpster fire. you have better scaling, better early, better team fighting, better push, better range. Your ult makes her ult useless. Fucking GG, fuck Neeko to death until you see the inevitable Victory screen.
Dude, you are COMPLETELY in control of this lane. Soldier positioning, and your positioning, if done properly, is all it takes to ruin her life. You push better than her and you can punish her as much as you want. Hardpush, punish her, be mindful of ganks, you have dominated lane.
Dodge the Qs, punish her as much as you can, you have inherent dominance in this lane. You outscale her and you have better mobility, so even at level 6 you can ruin her life. Honestly, the whole game you have an advantage over her if you play well. Be aware of your and her positioning and your and her's jungler's positioning, you will never die and may even kill her solo.
This is like a Fizz matchup. Poke her relentlessly, position yourself well around the minion wave to cut her off from CS and XP, and to poke her without getting aggro. her stun allows for powerful ganks so position yourself accordingly, and be aware of her stun stacks and flash, it is quite the combo.
Honestly, you can take care of his turrets, and poke him, all while not losing control of the wave. Just cripple him, he is a shitty little Yordle who can get stiffed by you if you shred his turrets and poke him viciously.
Best Jungler to duo with. This dude FUCKS, and he can really help out your lane. Great synergy with your kits.
Again, duo with this dude. An amumu is the best synchronistic
Strong team fighting synchronicity.
