Threats & Synergies
Most Riven players will blow a full combo and just barely knock you off skaarl, with her abilities on cooldown just auto her with W and hit a Q if needed to get back on skaarl, by that point she will be useless with her abilities on cooldown. Can be more of a problem lategame.
ABSOLUTELY DESTROY THIS CHAMPION! there is no reason you should lose, bully him early, you have an incredibly stronger early game, your w allows you to burst him down before he can really sustain off of you. Other than that, poke with Q and try to stay in range to pull it, use your E to dodge his knockup.
This matchup is more skill based, as long as you run ignite and he isnt some high elo darius main it should be an even match. Try to E on him when you see his q start so he doesnt heal. he will pull you to do enough damage to knock you off skaarl, easy enough to escape after being knocked off when his E is on cooldown. Call jungle for help if you are having problems.
Weak early game, bully him. he doesnt have any escapes from kled's double E besides the slow on his q. Shouldnt be a problem with ignite to mess with his regen. Rush Executioner's if worried.
Decently even match, He outscales. Yet you outdamage him early, make sure you have ignite.
garen is a decently strong/even match. If he is bad, you shouldnt have a problem. If he knows what he's doing, it can be rough. Bully him early, basically whenever he Q's a minion go in. Careful after 6
A good gnar will be a rough match. If you hit a first E, you can be alright and win the fight as long as he isnt close to mega, But he outranges you otherwise, and it relies on you messing up to win trades
On paper, he counters you. If he knows what hes doing and saves his E for your W auto attacks, then he will win the trade. If you dodge the stun, and hit atleast the 4th auto on W, you should win. Be careful lategame.
Bully him. He is weak until he gets sunfire, all he can do is poke with Q unless you jump on him, and your abilities outdamage his. Consider longsword/3 and maybe getting black cleaver before tiamat
Easy early game, bully/deny farm. Ignite messes with his lifesteal passive if he tries to fight back.
Tough match, if you dodge ALL of his Q's you will win, if he's decent with the champion you will need jungle help.
They all say he counters kled, yet ive won more matches against him without ganks. If he runs teleport be more aggressive, if he runs ignite try to play more safe. If his rage bar isnt above 50 you can win/go even on trades. Bait him into a turret shot and theres a kill. Get a kill ahead and you should be fine.
Easy matchup, if he hits you with everything he can kill you, but his Q is too easy to dodge with your double E's, poke with Q before going crazy.
Can be rough, if he makes mistakes or gets unlucky with the crits, you win. Just dont go to crazy. Stay back and do what you can to him if he misses a spin on you.
Very hard matchup, avoid picking/ask for jungle help. Rush executioner's, then hexdrinker if stuck in this. maybe bring teleport to try for kills bot.
Decent matchup, Not too hard for you, but there are some really good yasuo's out there, be careful. More often than not, you should be fine.
Kled is an incredibly strong lane bully, that can also jungle, but i do prefer him in lane. I feel like his tank stats scale better in jungle with cinderhulk, but otherwise i like him in top lane.
Kled is generally new and people still dont know how exactly to play against him. Which puts you at an advantage. He is definitely worth learning, is more dominant early game, and his ultimate ability helps you keep a lead better than anything else on this game. If you know where the enemy team is, you can all engage at a surprising speed. And only your team will be prepared for it at the second it happens.
Kled has the ability to hardcarry games if he really gets fed, otherwise he can make an incredible/annoying tank. Kled is a very sticky target and does a great amount of help in team positioning/engaging.
I hope you enjoy my guide, i tried to keep everything short/simple with as much info as possible! i will add more as my experiences with certain matchups expand, thanks for reading!
