Threats & Synergies
A good Yasuo player in enemy team will probably ruin your day with his Wind wall. He may block your Doublebombs and thus make you useless unless you can use your ultimate on important target.
Stay behind minions and don't get hooked. He's very easy to poke if he doesn't stay in backline.
Immobile adc. Easy target to stun. Respect her lvl 6.
Has tons of cc and is very tanky but his large size makes him easy target for poking.
Really scary match-up as she will kill you everytime she does her combo. Try to poke and after lvl 6 try to stay alive.
He has poke and sustain. He will roam to mid most likely so try to predict his moves with wards and try to kill his adc when he's away. Just watch out that their jungler doesn't come to help them in bot.
If you can dodge his W and Q, he has nothing. You, instead, can poke him down with ease. His ultimate will hurt a lot if your teammates stay near each other.
With his E he will eat your bombs but it can also make good opportunities for you to stun people around him. Don't let him walk in melee range as he will just crush you with his masculine appearance.
This lane has good and bad sides. Bad ones first: he will kill you in couple of seconds if you get caught. Good ones: you can predict his moves by looking for the landing place for his spinning axes and throw your bombs on it.
Pokes a lot, but you can poke back.
Low range and easy to poke, though he can dash with his E. Try to get away from his Smoke Screen as fast as possible so you can take part in a fight. His ult hurts a lot.
His E hurts a lot and silences. You can stop the channeling of his drain with doublebombs. He can make good plays with his ult so watch out for that.
Pokes a lot and is very hard to hit because he has his dash/teleport thing. No problem in early, but after he gets Tear of the goddess he will spam his Q and poking him back will be harder.
She negates your damage with her shield and makes it impossible for anyone to kill her adc.
He's immobile and does a lot damage. Stay away from him while he has his fourth shot. If he has Deathfire touch it may be good to ult the person he hit last if he is low because the damage may not come instantly and the keystone has good ad scaling.
Immobile and easy to poke. Lategame she does a lot of damage so it's good if she falls back early.
If something is hard to hit then it's Kalista while she is autoattacking. Your slow with E doesn't help you hitting her with your bombs as you can't slow her attack speed which is her source for that insane jumping. When there are no minions or other targets nearby you can try to hit her but she has her Q which also allows her to jump. If she doesn't get ahead she shouldn't be a problem after laning phase. Don't take too much risks as she has good engage with her ult and if they have jungler close to bot then you will die most likely.
She has poke and a shield. Can be good or bad match-up.
Immobile. You should kill him and make him weaker as in lategame he is a monster. When he dies you can help your teammates to get away from him with your E.
If she gets to you then you are dead. Her cc makes squishy supports like you an easy prey for her adc.
He has a dash so it won't be easy to hit him with bombs.
Very even match-up. She shields the damage you deal and pokes you back, but she doesn't have heals so it's good that she wastes her mana on shields rather than poking. She can also save someone with her ult. Try to poke, don't risk too much and wait for lategame.
If you get caught in her Q, you are dead. Stay behind your minions and try to dodge her E and ult.
Dodge her Q and everything is fine. She is immobile so you can poke her quite easily. In teamfights you have to stop her ult with your stun, otherwise she melts your whole team.
You will earn less gold than she because she can just use her W and watch the money coming (assuming she has spellthief's edge). Dodge her Q and try to poke her with single bombs. If she wastes her black shield to negate the damage you deal with one bomb, then it's your time to cc someone and perhaps go for a kill with your adc.
Try to dodge her Q. It's easier for you to poke than for her but she has sustain and more cc. She can also all-in you with her adc by using her ult.
Her spellshield is one of your biggest counters. Try to stun her when her E is on cd. Also, stay away from minions while her W is on and try to dodge her Q.
She has sustain and long range poke in her Q which doesn't need much skill to land. Very annoying match-up. Try to make balance with your poke vs her poke + sustain and try to burn her mana down. You can also try to predict from her moves when she tries to use her Q so at least the other of your bot laners won't take damage. Watch out for her lvl 6 all-ins.
Sustain to negate the damage you deal. She can poke too with her Q and silence with her E. To win the lane you have to dodge her Q and poke her hard so she can't heal her adc.
Stay behind your minions so he can't hit you with his Q. Watch for jungle ganks as he can throw a lantern to cover the distance for his jungler. He can poke a lot with his autoattacks due to his passive in E. Try to poke him so he may waste mana on shielding with W.
She pushes the lane hard due to her passive in E. In lategame she destroys turrets really fast so prepare for her splitpushing.
Squishy and immobile. Can be good or bad match-up. Try to kill him before lvl 6 so you make him weaker. Lategame he starts rolling if nobody tries to stop him or if he don't have enough protection.
Has great poke and can make weird plays with his ult. You can still poke him back but he may negate some damage with his shield.
Immobile adc. Try to dodge his Q and be careful when he gets his ult.
This can be good or bad match-up. Early you want to poke her mercilessly as much as you can. She is squishy, but she can dodge your bombs with her Q. Late game she becomes a monster and she becomes mostly the major target to kill in team fights.
If you can survive this match-up without dying then you do well. He has infinite scaling and gets his ap stacks by poking you and your adc. Try to help you or your adc to get away with your E when you see Veigar's E coming...
Great poke and does a lot of damage with his ult. All his spells are skillshots so you have a chance to dodge them. He has no sustain and mobility so it makes him easy target for your bombs.
Outranges you and makes trading really hard. Lvl 6 she and her adc will probably all-in on you.
Watch out for stun and you will be fine. He has a shield and a heal, which isn't that great though. His ult may change the tide in teamfight.
Easy to poke but very tanky and will devour his adc when he/she is in danger. There won't be much action in laning phase. He tries to poke you with his Q and you poke him back and so on.
His kit provides a lot of cc and he's really tanky. You can poke him, but it's hard to say will you win a fight when he engages with his Q and his adc follows up. Stay behind your minions and beware especially his lvl 6 engage.
