Threats & Synergies
WHy are you playing normals. flash to the sides when he tries to cc you or ult you. you can also try to cc him when he attempts to catches his axes and throwing his damage out of the window.
Don't let him poke you. and you're gucci. run away if he lands his W as it will do more damage. wait for it to expire.
Does Jhin Counter draven? LMAO no. go in on him for trade/kill when he's reloading or casting his snare. he's garbage trust. just keep ur range and stay away from minions.
Nothing early game, don't let her scale, poking her is ideal, if you target the support, you'll notice her doing more damage each second you dont target her and stop from her attack you. ccing her with ur support is ideal
she's nothing once u get fed. cc is a huge counter, she cant auto attack once she sprints at you with her (E) so use that as a change to trade.
she's scary, beware she will dodge ur cc once she gets enough attack speed and movement speed. play with ur support and cc kalista. dont 1v2.
he's nothing, his abilities will hindering his auto attacks and you'll be able to out trade him. Try to get your items before he does and you'll win lane. predict where he dashes when you cc him.
she's nothing as long as you stay away from low health minions stay on the side of minions.
will win lane if he manages to poke you down, i recommended doran's shield unless you have a support like soraka/sona that can you. If he has shield up engage with R first then E.
dont run straight when he throws his abilties at you. side to side is ideal,
stay away from low health minions, he usually pushes lanes with his auto attack passive. he will vary according to his suport.
he's nothing to you late game, once youre full build just have him focus your tanks then wreck him.
keep your distance, move side to side dont run straight at him as he can show his abilities easier at you. becareful of his poke damage.
Stay away from walls, u trade better, stay near ur support, and poke her down with rapid fire cannon when she frontlines in teamfights. predict where she tumbles when u E her.
You win lane easy, trading is easy. dont let scale, get rapidfire against her and poke her in teamfights with ur extended range.
Stay away from minions, if he tries to chase u through a wave of minions, e him there and bait out his windwall before you do so. If he does this in the middle of teamfights, move to the side of the windwall, and you'll be able to do damage to him.
Get GA, and Death's Dance. (slows his burst potential) When he ults you e behind you it will cc him and you'll be able to throw an auto gain life steal and prevent you from getting hit by his auto attack enhanced with his passive that deals more damage when you less than half health.
keep ur distance spam w when he runs towards you, and trade when he's on cdr.
Poke him when you know he doesnt have his auto enhancement up. stay behind minions preferably a double stack minion (on the side of minions) without his stun he's useless then you can all in him.
stay behinds minions, not as deadly as thresh, but if blitz lands one pull and you end in up a really bad spot, try to live and flash over a wall to run away.
Get dorans shield for this man, he's scary if you're in the open so just stand behind ranged minions and have ur support him out, but prepare for brand to engage on your support in that, u all in brand along with ur support.
Don't use your q auto attacks on him when he activates his shield as you will lose your axe. stay behind minions and spam q when you think he's going to engage with ult.
Poke, E him when you know he's close to you. Don't 1v2 a fiddle sticks and their adc unless you can one shot fiddlef irst.
Have ur support zone her, janna will get a better trade off you if she casts her shield and throws her ability at you.
bait her E, the pull snare, by using ur support to stand behind you. U can also bait her by getting pulled and flashing into tower. e her once she flies to her target and she'll have a hard time stunning the target.
Stay away, expect her polymorph. trading and poking is ideal. keep ur distance from her when her adc is near.
hide behind minions, run towards her when she tries to throw her E at you from afar. then she's basically useless.
Expect her magic shield, what i like to do is pretend to go for her adc so she shields them, and turn ur target to morgana and e (cc) her and wreck her with no defense. get out of her attack range when she buys zhonyas and poke her down.
useless if he doesnt land her bubble. poke her when she's facing away from you. you can flash over her wave when chasing.
I perma ban this man, he's op. just perma ban him until they nerf him. #1 tip is to hide behind minions to avoid the pull. Treat him like Tahm Kench and poke him when he gets close.
This man is scary late game, don't let him scale with support items because he can get tanky and fast. don't underestimate a good rakan's distance away from his away from his adc as he can flash dash activate charm/touch and knock you up. If you know he's going to try to knock you up 1) you can e him, and auto. or you can spam w and run out of his knock up zone.
Poke her if she pokes you, make sure u make it even. Stay near your support so you can have a chance to get a better trade/or even a kill. Her Q is random unless she's closer to a champion so get ur support to stand in front of you.
Poke her. Get her low so she's scared to be near her adc. a simple auto when Soraka comes in to try to sap health from you with her q. if she doesn't land her q's then you basically win lane.
This man will stop you from getting kills with your ult. Poke this man when he gets to close. Stand behind minions to avoid the minion splash he throws at u.
E is a huge counter against this man, however don't underestimate him because his autos do damage. Spam W when he close to you and kite him by running according to where his stun is facing.
Will wreck if you once he gets his mobility boots. Cancel his movement speed with an auto or zone him out with ur support. don't let ur axes land near him because most good threshes will predict where you will move and flay you first and cc you the rest.
As long as you don't let him harass you, he shouldn't be that big of a problem. If you're trapped inside his stun, try not to run out if you know you're in there for good. If so, spam w and flash out, or get ready to dodge his skill shots. expect his R to one shot you if he is fed. In that case do as much as you can, kill him. You can still catch ur axes while in there so just move accordingly.
Will get strong if the game goes too long, rapid fire and death's dance might be recommended if he does get fed. However, if you can dodge his first couple of abilities, then you'll be able to run at him when he's alone and destroy him. Use your E to cc him and you'll have a bigger window to move on him. Combine your support and he's most likely dead.
you're f'ed if he lands anything on you. Build the Against AP Build. You want rapid fire and death's dance for this guy if he gets fed as mid/support
Kinda useless if he misses his first bomb, however if he lands one on you, what I like to do is ruin the enemy adc's farm by standing near weak minon creeps to have their lane push towards my tower or make them lose cs.
Have your support try to zone her out. Be aware of her plants as she can plant them right as she casts her spells. Keep your distance, keep the bushes bot lane warded so you have the element of surprise sort of.
