Threats & Synergies
Amumu can't threaten your early game, find him early and if you get an early kill you can snowball the game in your favor. Play in his jungle and make him the saddest mummy on the rift.
This guy actually hurts early but with conqueror, your early dueling potential is very good. Make sure you have lane priority if you want to skirmish for a fight because if you get behind vs Mundo he flexes his PhD on you and you legit have to schedule doctor's appointment after the match. As long as you go even in the matchup, you scale a lot better in the mid-late game.
This is comes down to which jungler is better. Both champs can clear at a relatively similar pace so it comes down to your mechanics at early skirmishes.
Danger. Elise can make your life absolutely miserable. It is one of Kha'Zix's hardest matchups because she doesn't need to farm her jungle. You can't fight her early because the spiderlings remove isolation and her burst at level 3 is unmatched in the jungle. Just try to focus on tracking where she is and tell your laners to avoid getting ganked. You scale in the mid-late game so much better than her. Just get some spider spray and use it on her.
She can't threaten your early game so just perma-invade her. She can't duel you so as long as you have lane priority, you can walk into her jungle and kill her.
Fiddlesticks also cannot threaten your early game. He's just really annoying to kill because of his fear so just invade him with a buddy and make him cry.
Gragas can't kill you early game and you have the better mid-late game. Just track him early throughout the game and try to counter and ganks he attempts. Conqueror will let you win 2v2 or 3v3 as long as your lanes are strong.
Just ban it. You can't kill him and he does a billion damage. Idk just dodge if you see this thing.
Hecarim snowballs hard and becomes unkillable. Track his pathing and make sure you go even in this matchup. W evo is extremely good vs Hecarim so as long as you can go even or ahead in the early game, you will win out in the late game because Hecarim from behind is donkey levels of bad.
Just do 3 camps and invade him.
He's just really annoying but you don't use 1v1 ever as long as you don't get knocked up. Track him early to see if he goes for any level 2 ganks because that's how J4 players get ahead.
Jax is very annoying because he can actually duel you through conqueror because his champ is broken. Just make sure you don't mirror his path and end up at the same crab because you will lose the level 3 fight. Your goal should be to go even or ahead in the early game through farming the jungle or looking for ganks that will get you a kill. You're a useless bug if you fall behind in this matchup.
If you kill him over and over again early you win. If he manages to avoid you and power farm his jungle he just is 2-3 levels up and then you're depressed because he will always have global pressure with R. Find him early and shut him down with good invades and wards.
Another annoying power farmer. As long as you can find him early in his pathing and shut him down early, you will win. Kayn is a cannon minion at best if he is behind.
?? Why are you playing blind pick?? Wrong queue buddy.
3 camps invade kill her win game.
Lee matchup can get quite annoying because he is the skirmish king. If you have better mechanics, then you will have a better chance of coming out on top because Lee needs to use his abilities. Try to avoid him early and get to level 6 ASAP.
She is actually VERY annoying to play against. If you do find her in her jungle, she can just run with 60202384 MS away from you. Her damage early is something you should also be careful because if she lands her W on the center you lose 200 health for no reason. Aim to get level 6 before her and skirmish with your strong side lanes.
This comes down to who gets ahead first. Just farm for 6 early and you can win any skirmish vs Yi because your R can negate so much damage from Yi.
Try to invade her early because Nidalee thrives on properly doing her first clear and then looking for ganks. If you shut her down then the game is just too free. Turn her into a housecat and you automatically win because she is a caster minion from behind.
Nocturne matchup is simple. Farm for 6. Find him and kill him. Don't let him kill you first.
Nunu & Willump
SUPER ANNOYING CHAMP. Clears super healthily and can eventually outscale you because he takes 0 damage. You HAVE to get ahead early if you want to win. You need to bring someone to kill him because he will run at 290348 MS because of Phase Rush.
I personally think his is relatively easy because Olaf players love to full clear with low HP. Try to do 3 camps and mirror his path and find him doing the buff with around 200-300 HP and kill him early.
? Idk I'm pretty sure you just have to avoid this character like the plague early. Just farm and win later in the game.
Invade her make her depressed and just win.
Minor inconvenience because he is unkillable later but very vulnerable early. Exploit his weak early game and try to snowball the game.
Can't duel this thing and basically match your damage throughout the game. Just scale to 6 and don't let Rek'Sai get the first jump on you. This is mechanic diff.
Rengar hard wins early, avoid him early and play for mid-late game. Be careful for late invades because Rengar players are bit cringe and want to cheese their way to a win.
Exploit her weak early game and try to invade her as much as possible. Don't let her scale and get items because then the game because very hard for you to play because if you get CC'd you are dying 100% of the time.
Track his early game pathing and avoid early 2v2/3v3s and scale into the mid-late game. Focus on ganking lanes on the opposite side of him. His skirmish potential is through the roof.
Playing for level 6 is your best bet against Shaco. This thing legit snowballs like a machine then falls off a cliff later but games are so fast now that champs that fall off a cliff don't need to worry. You win mid-late as long as you go even or ahead in the early game. He can be super annoying because of his ult but you will outdamage him in any early skirmish.
Not really sure honestly. Shen is kinda OP so just be the better player idk LOL
She needs to scale so just find her and invade her. Shyv players love doing 5 minute drags so be around bot side around the 5 minute mark and check to see if she does. Kill her at drag if you see her trying to solo it.
Minor inconvenience because he is tank that provides a lot of threat to your carries. If you invade him early and kill him he's just a scorpion that lost all his venom. Just avoid fighting in spires that he has.
Invade. Kill. Snowball.
Taliyah is surprisingly annoying because she can avoid you early but if you fight her early, you will come out on top and snowball. Track her diligently because she can scale super hard into the mid-late game.
You can't actually fight him early so just play for level 6 and try to skirmish after.
Invade. Kill. Snowball.
TRACK. THIS. THING. LIKE. THERE'S. NO. TOMORROW. If he gets an early lead just FF15 FAST. His early game is absolutely stacked with damage so make sure you can get to level 6 and then try to fight him. Conqueror usually lets you win post 6 fights with ease as long as you're even.
She can be super annoying and invade you so make sure to start on the opposite side of the jungle as her.
I think you can just invade this thing early with conqueror and win.
Just super annoying. Play for level 6 and skirmish with conqueror. He is pretty durable in fights so make sure you are playing around his fear with your invisibility.
? Does this thing jungle still?
Try to invade him early as much as you can with lane priority. If you can snowball, then the game is extremely easy. If you're forced into farming simulator, take his camps away because Zac cannot gank and farm. Disrupt his first clear and you can prevent your lanes from getting chain-ganked.
Good CC and easy to dive with. Aatrox sets up ganks really well for you so having Aatrox top is always a nice sight.
The character sucks but I guess she's okay if she can land her charm. She has lane priority most of the time so if you want to go invade she can follow you. There are better mids though.
The skirmish potential of Akali and Kha'Zix 2v2 is absolutely insane. Look to fight early with Akali and win the early 2v2 to snowball a lead.
Handsome support can do everything. Sets up ganks, can dive and walk into the enemy jungle with you. What more can you ask for?
Pre 6 Anivia can be really annoying to have as a mid laner because they want to play an uninteractive lane to get to 6. You can't really do much with her because jungle is reliant on snowballing in the super early game.
Stun -> kill okay good.
Depends on his guns but he can skirmish pretty well around level 6 with you.
She has really good CC with slows and stun also she can help you track the enemy jungler.
Pretty much always has lane priority so you can look for invades with him. Just be careful because his stars will reveal him.
Jungle terrorist mid lane.
Handsome support. Sets up ganks, can invade with you and can dive pretty easily.
If he hands a hook they die but its really up to player diff on this one.
Has a LOT of damage throughout every point in the game so early skirmish with Brand is always ideal but this guy is so easily killed so just be careful.
He's really good for skirmishing but because he's a melee character without any solid CC until level 6, he doesn't set up ganks that well. You have to initiate the gank so Braum can follow. He's okay though.
Caitlyn is a well rounded ADC but she doesn't really add much to your game. She needs farm and you want to snowball early so there is a slight conflict of interest.
She is normally pushed in early so you can look to gank her early because her E is broken.
Scaling jungle terrorist champ. Early game she does nothing but does a lot of damage later in the game.
Very good CC for you as long as he hits it. Ganks are good with him and you can dive really easily post 6.
He is really good for diving and skirmishes so play around your Darius lane.
Idk what this champ really does for you tbh the early skirmish potential isn't as strong compared to other characters. If Diana gets shoved in you can definitely get a free gank in.
Perma slow and skirmish potential is good.
BIG DAMAGE GO SKIRMISH AROUND HIM.
Ekko is so insanely broken so just take early fights around his lane for 2v2 or 4v4 early skirmishes.
If you have an Elise in a lane I guess she can set up ganks really well for Kha'Zix but then you have an Elise in a lane sooo...
Scaling character = jungle terrorist champ.
Pretty good CC so he can set up ganks really well for you.
Just idk man just pray he's Faker.
Early fighter go brrr. Early skirmishes with Fizz are broken cannot lose them.
Handsome mid laner. They will die if they don't have flash because Galio CC is insane.
?:) Throw up your hands because you're in prayer meta. Pray he's the better top.
I mean like he has perma priority early so you can invade with him but honestly I just hate Garen.
I love Gragas support. The skirmish potential and gank setup is super insane so having a Gragas in any lane is pretty solid.
Hecarim top does a lot of damage and he can fight with you early. Play around Hecarim lanes so you can get easily snowball the game.
This is really just an enemy jungle terrorist. They can't gank him but also you can't really do much for him either until 6 so just play around a strong side.
Bit of a terrorist champ doesn't really do anything for you.
Her early skirmishing is really good so playing around her is a solid choice. Irelia from behind is FF15.
Doesn't really do much for you in the early game but she buffs your character like no other in the mid-late game.
J4 lane is deceptively strong so take early skirmishes with him.
If you can snowball the game with Jax the game is basically over but you don't necessarily have the best 2v2 in the game so just have better mechanics hehe
He has a lot of damage so it's really easy to dive early with him but you have to play it really well. Skirmishes with Jayce early are really good because Jayce is a hard lane bully. Play around lane bullies lanes.
I think Jhin is just broken so just snowball with Jhin for free win.
She has a very weak early game so avoid her lane early.
Good damage and shields early so you can definitely fight for crabs in the early game. Just make sure the enemy team doesn't have Naut/Leona
Fight with her and see if you win the 2v2 or 3v3 or 4v4 and then if you do then you just automatically win the game because they open.
Dear lord there are so many jungle terrorist champs.
He can setup ganks pretty well for you but after he stuns he pretty much is out of damage so you have to be the bulk of the damage early.
You locked in the wrong character man.
Dive and skirmish potential is that of Akali. He is super strong early and if you can win those early fights then you can snowball the game like no other.
True damage Kog is broken!
Sets up ganks super well, early skirmish is super strong and can invade with you. Overall handsome mid lane champ.
I think lane Lee is troll but I guess it can work...
HANDSOME SUPPORT JUST PLAY AROUND LEONA.
She has really good gank setup for you but other than that she doesn't really do much tbh.
I hate Lucian in solo lanes. Same damage type and no gank setup. Just invade with him and pray.
Super enchanter buff for your character makes you go brrr.
Lux as a character sucks but if you have one ganks are pretty free as long as they land the bind.
Have to wait for this rock to get level 6 to do anything. Path away from him early game.
Have to wait until level 6 for anything relevant to happen with Malz.
Maokai pretty strong as a support and sets up ganks really well. You pretty much always get a flash or kill with him because of his W.
She has high damage but doesn't really do much. Just pray you have CC support.
Its player diff so if you have a good Morde then play around him because you can snowball the game super hard.
Morgana E is so good for Conqueror Kha'Zix. Also if she lands a bind they pretty much just die.
I feel like this character dies in 0.1 seconds. But she can buff you up so you do a lot of damage. I guess.
HANDSOME SUPPORT. Has a lot of CC, gank setup, skirmish potential and invade strength.
If she lands her E I guess she's a champ.
Legit have to wait eons for him to get 6. Just play to a strong side.
Nunu & Willump
Nunu mid slaps but can fall behind super hard.
Fight with Olaf if you have a lane Olaf. Just fight.
Ornn does a surprising amount of damage early on and he can setup ganks pretty well.
HANDSOME CHAMP. JUST BROKEN ALL AROUND. PLAY AROUND PANTH.
You need her to land a stun or she's pretty useless for you.
Early skirmish with Pyke is pretty strong so just fight with him as long as he lands his spells. Pyke is a 1 way character so if he goes, you're going too.
Pretty strong because she can do whatever she wants with you. Just not ideal because she has the same damage type as you.
She's a lane bully so you can invade or take early fights so you can snowball but pretty hit or miss because Quinn is a bad champ tbh.
RAKAN BE HANDSOME TOO.
Rek'Sai lane is surprisingly strong so your fighting potential is really strong early.
Legit have no idea what this champ does. Will be updated later.
Same thing with Qiyana, he can pretty much do whatever he wants. Just not ideal because of the same damage type.
Good gank setup and invade potential but same damage type limits him from being ideal.
Riven is a coinflip. Just pray you have a good Riven one trick on your team so you can play around her.
If it is Rumble mid, he has insane damage and roam potential so you guys can walk around the map together. He isn't ideal since he is pretty susceptible to ganks.
? Champ has to scale but I guess he has a root for you
The character by herself is broken so idk just get her fed.
Lane Sejuani is okay but then you have a lane Sejuani...
Forgot this champ existed.
She's pretty good at setting up ganks for you also her skirmish potential is pretty good as long as her spells land.
Camp this guy's lane. Getting your Sett ahead is crazy. If it's support then its just snowball the game.
Shen is super strong and he has good gank setup. The skirmish post 6 with Shen is unmatched.
Manually submit a ticket that you have a lane Shyvana.
Normally you don't really want to be playing around a Sion lane but the amount of CC this guy brings is really insane.
Just have to wait for her R because it buffs your champ.
? Idk just wait for 6... I guess you have Merthos on your team.
Is not Seraphine so pick that one instead.
Champ is good later but does nothing for you in the early game tbh.
If he manages to land his E then its really free. Swain also snowballs pretty well and becomes unkillable later. Determine which lane you should play around if you have Swain but visiting Swain lanes are never a bad idea.
Skirmish potential is really high and sets up ganks really well. Handsome laner tbh.
Got nerfed too many times but she's still good as a CC bot so you can grab free kills if the enemy laner doesn't have flash.
You have a frog in your game. But he can save you sometimes.
Taliyah has to be the one to initiate all the fights so it's really just player diff.
Talon has good skirmishing early and can invade but you have the same damage type so it gets harder later in the game.
Taric can setup ganks and skirmishes like a god. Just has a weaker early game compared to Leona/Naut.
HANDSOME SUPPORT!!! He does everything in the game super well.
She just has a lot of damage so fighting early with her is pretty okay as long as it isn't against Draven.
Trundle skirmish is good but you have lane Trundle.
I do not like this champ but diving with him is super free post 6.
Gold card OP.
Despise this rat.
Udyr skirmish with you is strong but then you have lane Udyr.
Urgot has a surprisingly strong early game as long as you aren't playing vs Darius. If he lands his E, then they die.
o my god.
Vi in lane KEKW
Viktor scales like no other but his early game is weak so just make sure you're there for the counter ganks.
Make the bear stun and you always get a flash or kill. Skirmishes with the Bear is really strong.
Warwick skirmish is actually insane so fighting with him is really good throughout every point in the game.
Monkey is really good at fighting and diving post 6. Just make sure you have the stronger 2v2.
Has to land root to do anything useful early.
I guess if he lands a stun...
Xin skirmish is strong but then you have a Xin in lane...
Yone is broken post 6 so play around his ult.
She's just a buff for you. Pray you get to the mid game.
Zac top is kind of a banger so ganks are free with Zac.
Zed offers nothing really other than raw damage.
Zilean R is good...
Sleep is so broken also she can always burn their flashes. You can snowball pretty easily with her.
She has good CC and damage so skirmish with Zyra is pretty good.
