Threats & Synergies
Darius is extremely difficult to deal with. Poppy requires all in trades and thats exactly when Darius is at his strongest. Play safe until mid game and if you have to fight use your E to avoid the outer edge of his Q.
This is a pure skill match up, if you can bait her Parry out and stun her against a wall you will have an easy lane. However due to her scaling true damage she will dominate you late game.
This lane will be very frustrating, he will Q you every chance he gets and you have no real way to fight him unless you can stun him when his W is down. Try just keep up in farm.
Really good Gnar players will never get stunned by you and will be able to kite you with his constant slows and speed ups. Just try to farm the lane out and ask your jungler for ganks.
Much like Gnar a good Teemo will never get stunned by you and will be able to chip you down with their E damage, especially with a Liandrys.
This lane is not gonna be fun. The Constant turret pressure means you cant really go in early. But an Adaptive Helmet and it will make your life a lot easier.
His Q damage will hurt, try to dodge them and then engage when its on CD.
Her Q damage and sustain can be annoying. But if you can dodge those and get a good stun off you should be fine in trades.
Much like Heimer this lane is going to be annoying. Try going a more aggressive build and engaging on her when her E is on cool down.
If he gets ahead your gonna have a bad time. Try to poke him with your Q and all in him if you can get a good stun off.
Early game his constant damage and range will put you at a disadvantage. Plus his W will negate most of the damage in any trade. Try to just farm and ask your jungler for ganks.
His damage isnt anything to worry about. Keep the pressure on him to prevent him from sustaining back to full HP and you should be fine. Watch out for ganks, his ult will still destroy you.
This is a pure skill match. The poke from her W can be annoying but she literally need to go against a wall for one of her abilities. But keep in mind the second dash from her E will cancel out your E dash.
If you dont fall behind you should be fine. Dodge her stuns and block her dash with your W. Going a little aggressive here will help in trades.
A pretty easy match up early game. His late game scaling is where you need to be worried. Avoid extended fights and use your W to block his jump stun.
If you fall behind he will win the lane. With his ult activated her negates everything about Poppy that makes her good. Try to dodge Qs and play very aggressive early.
Farm him for Grasp stacks and play aggressive early. Once he gets too tanky you wont be able to fight him at all.
Nothing you can really do against this cheese strat except play safe. Riot needs to nerf him.
Build tanky and avoid fighting when you are the villain. Play aggressive early and try to prevent his passive from activating with your passive.
Your W can block his engage and Q dash when he is dismounted. Building aggressive can help, pure armor is also a good option.
Nasus is a very easy lane. Play aggressive so he cant get his stacks and avoid getting to late game. Nobody likes a stacked up Susan.
An annoying lane but you will definitely out scale him. Build armor and hes useless against you.
Your W can block each of her Q dashes, although its recommended to block the third because that has the CC. It also prevent her from escaping many situations. Poke her with you Q and all in if you can get a stun off.
Avoid getting cheesed early and this lane is easy. Build tabis and a bramble vest and he cant do anything to you.
Early game is no problem, but his all in is way better than yours and splitting potential is also way better. Avoid extended fights and you should be fine.
Probably my favorite match up. Your W prevents most of his mobility and building tabis and bramble vest and help a lot. Play very aggressive early game. But be warned, you will not be able to fight him if it reaches late game.
Now that he doesn't do percentage health damage with his W theres not much he can do against you. His sustain is annoying but just try to out push him in lane to win.
Avoid getting chipped away with his W damage and he is no problem at all. Your W can prevent his ult knock back to try to stay close when he activates it.
You dont really rely on auto damage so he really has no strengths against you. Build a sunfire for extra magic damage and try to push him out in lane.
He can by annoying but Singed is really no threat to you. Poke him down with your Q and avoid getting caught in his sticky goo.
I hate to admit it, but Poppy pairs very well with Yasuo. Now that you can snap cast your ult for a small aoe knock up. He can also proc his ult off your W is it stops a dash, carrying an enemy champ with your E is also considered a knock up.
Have her put her Ball on you and rush in like the little yordle you are. If you can get a good wombo off this could dominate teamfights.
You can stun enemies on his Ult, thats about it.
I dont know why you would ever be on the same team but like J4 you can stun enemies against his wall.
Another terrain creating champion, enemies will get stunned on his wall.
