Threats & Synergies
A Darius is not going to give an easy lane cause he uses his q with much more frequency than you can use your E to force a trade. Play safe, and try to surprise him with a cc combo near a turret or minions.
It is a Garen, he is stronger, but you can outplay him with strategy and surprise.
Should be a easy lane if you pay attention to her q, which can put her behind your E.
Realy hard lane, she can stun you and apply her damage before you use your E, and anticipating your E is sometimes dangerous.
Easy lane too, if you use your E and cc right. Never forget his ult.
Hard lane, he can easily poke you, but it is possible if you use a strategy similar to the one against Darius.
His mobility and damage are always dangerous, but if you can stack the passive, or a combo he goes down pretty easy.
Very easy lane, he is no threat at all, you can anticipate his shadow dash, and pop E, so he deals no damage at all. You will most likely win the trade due to your life steal.
This is going to be a short and simple guide, showing only the necessary.
FIRST, Always remember to stay close to your minions, you are their Main Man and they will protect you. (Use W on minions to engage or fall back, or in yourself during a trade)
SECOND, The engage technique is simple: if your enemy is scared behind his minions, fall back to your mage minions, letting your enemy go to your front line minions and jump on them with W, punch your enemy and try to stack the passive.
THIRD, Braum's Q is your second main damage tool. Use it wisely, if you see that your enemy will try to fall back before you stack Concussive Blows, land the Q to complete the third stack of the passive, cause it resets autoatacks, and slows your enemy so you will always stack your passive.
FOURTH, Braum's E is your main trade toll after the passive, and you must use it wisely, beware champions who have skills to jump to your back (yasuo, riven, fiora, etc.), so use it after their dash skills.
FIFTH, Braum's ultimate us very useful in the top, use it on 1v1 for the damage and CC, or for disengage the enemy jungle.
You must adapt and use them when and however your True Man instincts tell. It comes with practice, for True Men never give up.
