Threats & Synergies
Akali can be a bit tricky to deal with due to her being quite sticky and mobile. Her shroud can also cuck you pretty hard at times.
Camille is often a pain in the ass, but not a major one. As long as you either manage to dodge or avoid her stun, you'll have a decent chance at coming out on top in trades. Her ultimate is also sometimes rough against singed, but a good trick to keep in mind is running to the edge of her ulti area and flipping her out of it to cancel it's effect.
Cho'Gath is extremely annoying, but not a major threat if you can dodge his knock up and respect his ult.
Darius is really hard for singed. He does immense amounts of damage and applies a strong bleed, which can be extremely cancerous while trying to trade with him. Often times you'll either want to pick ghost+flash against him or just proxy.
Mundo is another difficult matchup due to his cleavers that he can keep spamming at a low CD. They do percentage damage AND slow you. If you can dodge his cleavers you can often win this lane by just being careful and trying to go in when his ultimate is down.
Fiora is a great danger to singed due to her decent mobility and ability to completely deny your flip and even stun you at the same time. She also does nasty true damage when hitting vitals, which really hurts. You only want to attempt trading with fiora if you have a decent cs lead and her W is down.
GP Is EXTREMELY annoying in lane. One of my personal nemesis champions. He has it all, he's fast, he does damage, he has slows and self healing + anti-cc. You want to avoid his poke as much as you can and be careful with trades as he can still pack a decent punch.
Garen is a difficult matchup due to him being really fast, having his silence and INSANE regen in lane.
I don't personally see Gnar as much of a threat, even though he's a lanebully. He's not very good in soloq at the moment. All he can really do is try to poke you in Mini-form, but he's also relatively squishy in his Mini-form. Once he transforms into Mega, you want to watch out for his stuns.
This little fucking yordle manages to piss me off everytime, but still not an extremely difficult lane. You can often come out on top if you manage to out manouver his stun.
No need to explain Jayce to be honest.
You just can't win a trade with Ornn.
Teemo can be extremely nasty against Singed. Your best shot is to either rush Swifties or Mercs against him and once you ding level 6, just run at him and all-in as hard as you can.
Champion Build Guide
But in short, I'm a Singed/Twitch 2Trick who started playing League at preseason 8.
But wait? If you're so new to the game, how would you know how to play?
Well, to make it short, ever since I started playing, I've sunk countless hours into League and everything that goes into it. I reached Diamond 1 and peaked at Masters 180LP momentarily. I have accumulated over 600k Singed Mastery Points during that time and atleast 400k Twitch mastery points.
That being said, let's get into the guide itself.
+ Decent mobility
+ AMAZING waveclear
+ Excellent kiting
+ You WILL tilt your lane opponent beyond limits known to man
+ You can do pretty fair damage on most builds
+ You still remain quite tanky and take some hits
+ Extremely strong if played correctly
+ Good early to mid game
+ The possibility of proxying if that's your cup of tea
+ You get to play 4D-Chess
- You don't scale that well
- Easy to play, hard to master
- A bunch of counters if your opponent knows what they're playing against
- You will recieve tons of hate for playing singed, but personally, that just fuels me
- Requires decent knowledge of the game and macro play
- Requires good awereness
Should YOU play singed?
Well, judging by the fact that you are reading this right now, I'd say yes.
So you've got your refillable and dark seal, your current goal is to hit level-2 before your lane opponent while also setting up the minions so that you have a clear advantage when it comes to minions. Once you hit level-2 you can pull of your level-2 POWER MOVE. This move involves you getting to flip your opponent into your gas and minion wave. This often ends with your lane opponent either A) Dying (if you have ignite) or B) Having to flash away if they're not mobile and you managed to pull it off well enough.
In either scenario you will most likely take at the very LEAST 1/3rd of his health away. Just your Fling does a chunk of damage + your gas and the minions. Don't forget to weave in some autos to add insult to injury.
If you land the killing blow on your opponent + some minions you have farmed in the lane aswell should land you at a nice amount of gold that you can take to base and upgrade to a Corrupting Potion and basic Boots .
Now you can return to lane with a notable lead on your opponent and can proceed to farm like the madman you are while trying to take positive trades with your enemy.
This does come with the disadvantage of your lane opponent most likely pinging non-stop for a gank from the jungler, or the jungler being proactive and coming on his own. As Singed ganks don't really bother you that much if you know what you're doing. Especially if you can expect the gank or see the enemy jungler coming your way. You can flip the enemy jungler into your glue with ease and make a clean escape.
Now you can just rinse and repeat this process for essentially the whole laning phase.
What is proxying exactly?
Proxying is when you don't lane directly but instead go gas the minions before they get into the lane, hence the term "Proxying".
Proxying can be a difficult play-style and I frankly I don't personally like it that much, nor do I see it as very viable against a lot of matchups and junglers. When you proxy, you also have to take into account what the enemy jungler is. Is he someone with high mobility or maybe high amounts of CC? Maybe you're laning against a Quinn and the enemy jungler is Jax. In this kind of scenario, I would never proxy, even though Quinn is hard in lane. Just by existing Jax can easily shutdown your proxy since he can just jump on top of you and stun you while Quinn catches up and you find yourself in a 2v1 situation.
Since im nowhere near good at proxying, I'll attach a guide from Minishcap, a challenger tier singed players guide on proxying. He goes into good detail on when and how to proxy.
(Please do keep in mind that the guide is a bit older than this one, so the runes might not be accurate anymore. The proxying part is still relevant though.)
