Threats & Synergies
If he hits all his crit Q's and his W, you will lose the all in. If you E his Passive, look to fight him. You can choose to buy an early executioners calling, but you dont need it
Really fucking annoying, you'll never hit her. Try to weaken her level 1 and 2, but you'll outscale her. You can go TP in this lane.
Wait for her second Q then E it, and you win every single all in. She should never 1v1 you
Dodge or get mercs and farm what you can, when she grounds you you'll be unable to Q.
If he's building tank, you can smack him early if you dodge his q. If you can get a lead over him pre6, you'll destroy him forever. If he's AP cho and he knows how to play it, you're fucked, he'll zone you and 1 shot you.
Save your Q for his Q, and jump in the middle of it. then you can look to all in. Save your E for his W, and you'll win it. Dorans early for extra sustain vs his bleed can be helpful, and Stinger early is good for more DPs. if you get a lead on him, you can snowball and kill him over and over again
Grab attack speed and executioners calling, but you'll rarely kill him honestly, but he can't kill you. Try to freeze the wave and jump him after he q's a minion or misses. He'll outscale you FAST so try to kill him early or get a good lead
Diana top huh. just perma all in her she cant do anything
If she knows what she's doing she'll hit all her vitals and always win. Grab executioners calling and match her tiamat if she rushes it. You can win the 1v1 if you outplay her parry with your E. If she parries one of your abilities you die.
Can be really rough. His barrels will chunk you super hard and his q spam will also chunk your hp. Your best bet is to look for an all in lvl 1 or 2 and kill him, or try to set up a freeze and commit to all ins. Otherwise, he'll poke you out of lane and you cant do anything. If you can go even or get a lead, you'll outscale.
I permaban this champ, even if you dodge his q he can spin onto you and then get away and heal all his health up. At level 6, you won't even win a close fight with him having his R up. Go for early tiamat or stinger to have more dps pre6. Be careful fighting him when you are low.
He'll poke the shit out of you and jump away when you leap to him. Only way to win vs him is to commit to hard all ins and kill him. You'll outscale him eventually though, remember to stay away from the walls post 6.
There's a small window lvl 2-3 where you can all in him if you set your wave up properly. Kill him twice and you'll kill him forever. Rushing mercs can be good here. If he gets to level 6 uncontested you lose.
Dodge if you see this champion, but if you really want to play it, dodge her E and then look to trade her. Dodge her W with your W, and make sure to walk away from her when she ults so her tentacles dont slam you. Rush executioners calling.
You can hold your e forever vs this champion. Don't get stunned and you should be fine, you hard outscale her, look to all in every chance you get. Watch out for her passive reaching 5 stacks.
Dodge, otherwise its the same thing as Gnar. He pokes you forever, he'll push you away when you Q him. If you can find an opportunity to leap while his knockback is doing you'll win the all in. Impossible matchup if they play it right, but you will outscale if you can survive
Wtf this is meta now? Her autos will keep her naturally kiting away making it impossible to stick onto her. She does insane damage and by the time you jump on her you're half hp. Dodge this one
Just q to her while its off cooldown and all in her, you'll kill her before she hits 6 if she steps forward.
Ranged matchup but his burst isnt as hard as someone like Jayce or Gnar. If you can catch him while his E is down, you'll win every 1v1 pre6.
Don't fight him if he Q's you, otherwise look to all in him and save your E for when his W is up. Be sure to only fight him dismounted when your E is up because he gets mounted really fast.
HAHAHAHAHAH Dodge or lose lp
You can kill him before he gets his tank items, but after that neither of you will kill each other. Look to outscale.
Small window pre-6 where you can maybe kill him if he has zero tank items. His cc however is super annoying you'll never catch him, and his life steal keeps him healthy.
He's pure autos, burn his spell shield with your Q then e his damage and look for all in. If you fight him in his Q he can probably win, so be careful.
If he rushes ninja tabi bramble vest you will get outscaled by lvl 6 if he doesnt, all in him every chance you get, dodge his Q and delay his passive while you smack him. going for early dorans is very good here. Put a wits end in your build and you'll win for sure later on
Rush executioners calling first item, then all in him every chance you get. + Ignite, you will win as long as you dont stand in his E. You can upgrade into Mortal Reminder later to counter him and/or grab Guinsoos/BORK.
Rush executioners and E his W and the matchup is easy as fuck, you should always win and outscale
If you cant kill him pre 6, you'll never kill him, stack some Attack speed early and try to all in if he steps up too far. Consider TP here
High burst but if you don't get hit by too many Qs you'll win the all in. Respect him when you're low hp as his Q does damage based on missing health. If he trades you early, All in him and you should win.
Pre 6 you can kill her, once she starts stacking armor you won't be able to. Dodge her coin with your E, outscale
She's not as bad as Vayne, she'll save her disengage for when you jump on her. If you can all in her and snowball you'll always win. Rushing tabi is good
Dodge his W with your E and you'll win every trade, be cautious of his fury. Get him to use his R, then back away, and when its off cooldown hes vulnerable. You can kill him easily pre6 if you play it right
Rush ninja tabi bramble vest and you can fight him. Otherwise there's literally no hope, stand on the opposite side of the wave and try to farm what you can. You'll outscale eventually.
Riven will short trade you and dodge your E constantly. If you're low she'll 1 shot you. Stay away from level 1 bush cheese, if she knows what you're doing you're fucked, play to outscale
You can kill him level 2 and facetank his damage. After that he'll poke you out forever, nothing you can really do
He'll poke you forever and by the time you jump on him he gets phase rush and kites you away. He scales harder than you too
When he gets his shield, jump behind him to avoid the damage. E his empowered autos and you should win.
You beat him early, spam ping your team when he gets 6 so they dont die to his R plays. Once he gets some armor, you wont be able to kill him in lane, but he cant really kill you either.
He'll run away forever, you can beat him early when his poison is weak but after that he's unchasable, very hard to kill.
Most underwhelming tank matchup ever. He has no escapes pre 6, all in him every chance you get and try to jump behind his Q. You should snowball vs Sion
Wait for him to waste his E and then all in him, and you'll always win. Pretty easy lane
Very snowbally lane. Take as little damage as possible then all in him level 2 to burn his flash. When his flash is down, all in him and use your E to wait out his blind and then all in. You should win with your Corrupting potion heal. If you let him poke you uncontested, and shove you under tower, you will lose.
Should be pretty easy, jump out of his circle and E his empowered auto then look for all in. Don't fight him when he has a bunch of his creatures around him.
This matchup should be free. Rush tabi first item and then the only way he can match you in damage is with an early BF sword, to which he ends up delaying his first crit item. Burn his shield then all in him and you'll win.
Slippery and annoying, but you outdamage him in every way. Save your E for his Q.
He's gonna rush ninja tabi bramble vest and you'll never kill him. Before that, E his Q and you can all in him.
If you let him poke you you'll lose. Jump on him level 2 if he steps up, all in him every chance you get. While his pool is down, you should win all ins. Executioners calling rush is good here
Dodge. Too much damage too fast, when you jump on her she will E you away. A Vayne who knows what shes doing will never let you win this matchup
When he turns on his W, use your E and you win every fight. Be careful when he ults you if you're low.
He'll rng crit you, you outdamage him early, especially if you can trade him while his fury is lower. If you get ahead early, you'll snowball. Trynd players like to play hyper aggressive so don't let him auto you for free.
Rush executioners calling and all in him every chance you get afterwards. You'll win.
