Threats & Synergies
I personally have never had any issues with shaco. It just depends on fed he gets off your lanes. If he looks to get fed off you, just walk away from where he places his box and start to drain him. Its not the hardest fight.
Your drain follows stealth. Honestly you out damage him early, but late game he can pop you if he gets the jump; but if you get the jump on him, he is most likely dead.
I have not fought this much. When I have, I haven't had issues with it. You clear faster than he can though he can snatch a camp super fast. Just depends really.
Never had issues with kindred, most of the time early game you can fight her over almost anything. Your level 6 ganks are stronger than hers, but her pre 6 ganks are stronger than yours. If she snowballs before you can get 6 its going to be much harder, but you can just fear her into a silence and she should die from you or your team easily.
He's a armor tank. Granted, he can stop you cold in your tracks with his cc; but, most of the time he will look to dive your back line or your other divers. Just ult his squishies and go for them and clean him up afterwards.
If he uses his only form of engage to stop your drain, he's doing it wrong. He can box you after you ult however, which is annoying but you can still just kill him. I never find this matchup hard.
Haha scarecrow go burrrrr. Honestly, I've never had issues with ekko. Yes, his early game is better than yours. However, he builds so squishy most of the time that once you have items you can kill him before he gets to ult.
If he goes rhaast, he can actually stop your drain. If he goes blue kayn, then he's probably setting himself up for failure. Either way, try to dominate him and his lanes once your 6. Your drain will stay on him if he ults you while you starte drain, so whatever you do don't cancel your drain.
I'd want to put this lower, but most of the time I've ended up fighting over bushes with this man. Hes frustrating given his burst. Never fight him alone, but try to counter gank him whenever you can. You both are looking to gank at 6 or higher anyhow.
This one depends. His only non-ult cc is his engage and disengage. Once he has ult though, he can and will kill you if he finds you. The trick with this, is just ult in after he dives. It will peel him off and more than likely kill him and whoever else followed him up most of the time.
He outscales you pretty hard, sort of. You can 100% kill him late game, but if he gets his dodges your fear, you are dead. If he doesn't then you made him waste 2.25 seconds of his ult late game, and hopefully your team has followed up on your cc and killed him.
Not that much experience with this matchup, but what I have fought has leaned towards a skill matchup. If you know how to clear jungle more efficiently than he could, which shouldn't be too hard, then you can win objective control.
You both are looking to gank at 6 and power farm until then. The only time you'd see him is at skuttle, and unless you have back up just give it up. He can spell shield your fear, have a delayed cc so you can't just start to drain, and has high damage due to mostly taking lethal tempo. combined with his q bonus ad and passive.
He's like nocturne, but most of the time jax jungle's are squishier than their top lane counter parts. He's easier to kill in the jungle if your smart than if he is a top laner, if you catch my drift.
Entirely skill based. A good nidalee is going to gank top, then bot, then mid, then take your red while somehow being everywhere on the map at level 4. A bad one is nonexistent just like this champion's play rate.
Nunu & Willump
Skill based, but I've fought him less than ivern so I don't have a good statistic myself.
If you are winning the fight against him, he is going to w and run away. If you are losing the fight, just fear him and run away. You have a better team fight than him and thats the important part here.
You both are looking to gank at 6, so just try to out gank her. You can do objectives by your self better than her, but just be wary of the delayed cc. Otherwise I haven't had issues with this matchup.
You are looking to power farm much faster than he can. Always be on the move between camps, and try to grab scuttles way before he can get there. May be difficult at times, but you can gank harder at 6.
Hold off on your drain if when fighting him until he uses his cc. Overall you should clear faster, but he will gank sooner. Just try to power farm and hard gank.
I hate this champion with all my heart honestly. He's just annoying; fast, does good damage, and has point and click cc. If he is bad, he will stun you before you drain. But you should never try to fight him on your own, as he can easily out jungle you and invade you for kills. Try to set up traps for him with your team if you can, if he is shut down you can get objectives easier.
A good warwick will be like a good udyr. A bad warwick will be like a worse udyr. Honestly, just do your best. Try to power clear and get objectives when you can; odds are he will get drake at level 4 or 5. Try to snag it from him while he does it if you can, if not just work for the next one.
Boy, this matchup is never fun. He's got good pre 6 ganks and even better level 6 ganks. You both are explosive at 6, but he can stop your drain if he hasn't q'd already. Just peel him off your team late game and play around that.
She will go in. On whoever she wants, you can't and won't stop her. Granted, your e can stop her q in its charging form. That is your strongest time against her; try to silence her mid q then fear her and hope you have back up. Late game that should be enough with your team to blow her upt.
This matchup is super annoying, if they know what they are doing. if they play reksai just for the vision game, then they will most of the time probably use their knock up on their engage, leaving you to dive the back line easier or just fear reksai every time she tunnels towards your team. Its kind of funny watching the land shark make a tunnel then die for it.
Never fight him alone. Granted, there are not many people you should fight by yourself but he is certainly in the same line as udyr here.
I hate this guy. Can interrupt your drain and ult you out of diving their back line. My best advice is just peel him off and let your team take him down.
He can be a extremely frustrating match up, on the caveat he knows what he is doing. As much of a skill matchup as this can be, his ult still nullifies your cc. Granted he can't stop you from draining or ult, but he gets stronger the lower he is. Overall, the matchup favors him generally but just try to look for picks on his squishier team mates and you can try to get a win off that.
He has a better early game than you, and if smart will abuse that to no end. He also scales decent, despite what everyone says "lee sin falls off late" used to be true in the past, but he can just go bruiser now and be fine. Overall, try to farm up to 6 fast and look for counter ganks if you can.
High burst damage, good stun, a mobility spell, and sustain. Honestly a gross champion, but you can get drains from her spiders. Just hope you don't die in the 2 seconds you are stunned; if you are not, then fear her and hope for the best.
From my experience, he out scales you in every stage of the game. He has a fantastic engage for team fights, and good map mobility with solid damage and sustain. Honestly, just try to peel him off your back line if you can during team fights. After that you can try to get their back line or clean up from there.
She will power farm. Extremely. Fast. That's about all she is really good at, but damn is she good at it. It'll be hard to get a drake from her, but if she builds ap you can burst her. If she builds bruiser you are dead if you ult her or she ults you.
He has two aoe knock ups. Its more of a skill matchup, but its still hard for fiddlesticks to come out on top.
