Threats & Synergies
ahri is a pretty easy match up just dodge her charm and punish her when she misses it just spam ping your jungle pretty much.
you can basically dodge his q with problem the only thing is be careful with his ult if he starts channeling it and you don't have gold card.
No escapes other than flash/ghost dodge her q get cleanse if you think you cant dodge it and get a good gank off with your jg with gold card.
Out ranges you, and can outpoke you and out shove you early game. But then again when he shoves just gank him early and shut him down anyone that doesn't respect your gold card is going to pretty much die.
You beat her pre 6 but, after 6 she kind of dumpsters you get some mr and roam shove and don't stay mid force her to follow you and collapse on her with your jg and both lane when she tries to follow you.
One of the harder match ups if Annie plays it right she can 2v1 you and your jungler if he doesn't do enough damage to just straight up kill her. Early shove and make try and punish her after 3 let her push and try to get a good gank with gold card her flash is her savior if she doesn't have flash then she cant escape but more importantly she cant flash on top of you and kill you.
He can out shove you early, but your gold card gets rid of his w/ passive if he doesn't have cleanse punish him.
She out damages you early, and maybe late but remember your not looking for duels or 1v1s she cant really follow you she is to slow pressure her by shoving mid roaming and trying to get some scraps in once you get some items you should be okay and probably even kill her.
He is just bad right now no one plays him. But if you do find yourself against and azir. try not to fight him he out damages you early once you get lichbane you pretty much shit on him.
Kind of hard match up it can be pretty rough some times facing brand. He is going to pretty much auto shove with w and e so just look for 2v1 mid before 6 after 6 who ever your jungler is has to be careful for counter ganks and 2v1 potential with brand.
Cancer fucking champion. Just try and kill her early with jungler, even burning passive is good she just does to much damage you can hardly kill her just becareful with stun plus e its pretty much 50% of your hp.
Melee champ try and abuse early get an early abyssal or rod build.
you can pretty much kill him but if he gets some mr, its pretty much over you need abyssal and jungler with gold let him shove should be free.
This lane there isn't really a winning its just scraping to leave laning alive his oranges counter your gold card he out shoves you and out damages you he can pretty much 1v1 you any time he wants to.
early abuse him when he wastes his e punish him and hit him with either blue card with stacked deck or just gold card and q and just straight up punish him with autos. You need exhaust against him no doubt.
New kat burst is pretty delayed/slow you can outplay her and just completely negate her ult just grab exhaust
Her combo is slower so you can react to her more easily, just punish her if she misses w and ask for gank when she wastes w.
Only problem with him is the spell shield just break it with q and be careful with his ult grab exhaust against him she shouldn't solo kill you.
When she shoves with q, just counter shove with either red card or q try and freeze wave and ask for gank careful with her ball and try not trade auto for auto with her.
let him shove if u miss cs miss cs just don't die, just get in exp range and cs under turret.
Just dont stand next to minions when he is e'ing them dont take free q's stun and ask for ganks. Am i repeating my self?
Just ban the stupid cunt, She has more range than you more damage grab exhaust if u want any chance.
lane should be easy just free farm roam she can do damage so keep that in mind go ghost against her to chase/ keep up with her just be mindful of her w and e.
You can out play him with exhaust but if you don't have zhonya's or w up your dead. *With sudden impact he does way more damage and if you don't respect it you will die lvl 2 get cloth or boots to dodge his second part of w.
grab exhaust, try and dodge his stun. You can out range him just try and shove wave and look for tp he can one shot you at 6 careful. Just poke him with q and make him to low for 2v2
he out ranges you, if you dodge his q you shouldn't really worry you can shit on him pretty easy other than that.
Out damage's you out pokes you, just ask for jungler or roam. If he doesn't have cleanse abuse that.
Grab exhaust, Jesus i sound like a broken record. Punish when he wastes wind wall believe it or not you can actually shit on yasuo.
same just grab exhaust rush zhonya's and you can actually kill him.
He is just easy to play against, dodge all his q's he shouldn't be a problem.
Little harder cause of slow but if he doesn't have ult just try and kill him early look for early kills on him technic. you shouldn't be able to kill him to slippery.
Little Bit About meHi,I have over 1000 games on Twisted fate, and I have played him to every possible extent- every build and every possible rune and mastery combination. I am here to help you with the basics of Twisted Fate; how to play him in lane, mid game, and late game. I will help you understand match ups and learn which are favorable for twisted fate and which are not. I will teach you how to apply pressure with your cards and where to place important wards on mid side. Here you will pretty much learn everything to play Twisted Fate properly.
How do I lane?Normally you want to let them push. Remember ,though, you are and do no damage. Let them shove and last hit with Pick A Card (blue/red card) or with Wild Cards. If you see a chance to harass/poke, go for it. If not, just don't and continue last hitting. Last hitting is very important on since your passive Loaded Dice gives you extra gold (on average 4 extra gold). Only poke when you won't miss cs or it's free(try not to trade cs for poke). Focus mostly on the cs. REMEMBER ROAM WITH Destiny
How do you team fight with Tf
Best case is you get a pick with gold card and your team is with you if you don't have enough damage. Before you Pick A Card gold card, you want to have your Stacked Deck passive with sheen. You can one shot someone with Stacked Deck gold card combined with Wild Cards
If you can't get an easy pick, let your team go in and throw Wild Cards from a safe distance until someone tries diving your carry. If so, you want to instantly gold card them and change focus and just kill him. Then look for an opportunity to TP behind them with your Destinyand gold card kill them. Remember, if you start to teleport with your ultimate you can cancel it using Zhonya's Hourglass
Blue Cardblue card to last hit and freeze the wave in combination with Wild Cards early game you should not run out of mana. When you have Stacked Deck and you hit them with a blue card its a pretty big chunk of damage for pretty much free every time its up try and go for it.
Red Card Use red card to shove the lane when it starts pushing to your side,to shove a wave quickly you Wild Cards
Gold Card Only use gold card to get free harass or when your jungler is coming to gank your lane, try not to use gold card by its self. (When you are teleporting using Destiny you can use Pick A Card and lock in Gold card before you port in or after)*
When you pick a card and throw it for 4 seconds you are vulnerable so be careful until you have your Pick A Card Pick A Card IS NOT RANDOM https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tp***Jo2MDE&feature=youtu.be
Summoner spells are as follows. These are the best for Twisted fate:
You can run this with flash but don't run it solo; Good for chasing people down
If you are facing an assassin, like Zed or Talon, and you think are going to die, grab it. Not only that but exhaust is just op.
This is the alternative to exhaust. It's not that useful but in those certain match ups it can help you survive that extra damage. This also has a lower cool down than exhaust.
Generally, you want to ward the enemy's raptors and you want to have vision for your jungler to know where their jungler is. Ward raptors and the typical river and bush wards. Then just hug those areas.Warding spots...
Best Runes?The runes really depend on match ups. For AD match ups like Talon and Zed, you really want to run AP quints; armor yellows, magic pen reds, and AP per level blues or flat AP blues. In heavy AP match ups, you want to go with AP quints; HP per level yellows, flat MR blues, and magic pen reds. For CDR you can run AP quints; magic pen reds, HP per level yellows, 6 CDR per level blues and 3 AP per level blues. Against AD match ups you want CDR. Run the same rune page but switch the HP per level to flat armor. Then you can just run movement speed quints, HP per level yellows, and AP per level blues/ flat MR blues.
Good pick potential.
Amazing at roaming.
Can split and teleport behind enemy team.
2.5 second stun guaranteed in late game.
Helps your team snowball
Really bad match ups
Hard to play
Hard to master
Hard to have an impact
Out damaged early
Hard to do things if not played properly
Cleanse Is a pretty big counter to Twisted fate, just try and force it out any way you can.
Quicksilver Sash Also counters you, when they have it down or you force them to QSS port and kill them.
