Threats & Synergies
Heretic. She will kite you to the end of the world. Dodge her Q and you should be fine. Rush Jak'Sho or Rift.
Heretic again. Vayne is a lot easier than Cassiopeia. Take ghost always. Sit under tower until 6. If she freezes, sit in a bush and don't miss XP. After 6, you can try all-in. Bait her Q to your Q. Don't use E when she has Q. Remember, her Q's cooldown lowers when she ults. Don't ever try to 1v1 her in the late game.
Heretic. Just take teleport and sit under tower. You will be kited to the end of the world and she can dodge everything.
This matchup depends on the Aatrox. If he is good, he will fuck you up. If he is bad, free lane. Buy bramble early and rush Rylai's. Try to abuse him level 1, his Q cooldown and damage is low but don't get hit by Q3. After level 2, don't try to trade him. Be careful at level 4, if he hits full combo you will need to base. Level 6 is where you can trade him if you aren't low and not back a lot. Lower his health by spamming Q's and dodge his Q's. After that just ult him and kill him in the brazil. You scale him pretty hard.
La creatura. This is pretty much the same with Aatrox. If she is good, you are fucked. If she isn't, free lane. Buy bramble early. Try to poke her with your Q but don't let her proc her passive. Level 3 you can try to all-in. Level 6 you need to be careful. Lower her health and ult her. If she ults you, hug a wall and don't let her proc that side. Do that and you will win. Don't fight her after she gets Divine.
Another creatura. Don't try until level 2. E + Q him and try to run him down. Don't fight until 6. After 6, let him place his tarrets and you can ult him. His tarrets stays out of the realm but dodge his W and E.
I play him a lot and this lane is pretty hard. If he is good he will just have a barrel and chain it if you walk into range. If he is bad he will fail. You can try level 2 but don't try when he has his passive up. Try to dodge his barrels. He will deal tons of damage if he hits a barrel and procs his passive. If he does it, pull him towards you and fight him. If he puts a barrel try to break it. If you can't, run. Post 6 kinda becomes easier since he can W to you ult but you get the stats. If you see him use W before your ult, just ult him. Don't fight late game he will shit on you.
I hate him. Perma ban him. If you didn't and couldn't dodge the game. Pull him back with your E when he uses E. Play safe until 6. After 6, wait him to use his ult. Do not use ult if he didn't ult because you won't be able to steal his ult stats.
You can deal with him. Another perma ban. Don't try until 6. If he has braincells he will ult at the start of the fight so you can't ult him. But if he doesn't ult at the start you can ult him. He will get out of the realm but you will keep the stats. Try to hit isolated Q's and buy bramble early.
Ranged top laner. Don't try until 3. Wait for her to vault you. After that, you can use your E even if you don't see. Post 6 you can ult her after she uses her blind and vault.
She is kinda easy for Mordekaiser. Same with Fiora and Aatrox. You can try level 1 trade but I don't recommend. You can try level 3 trade. Post 6 is free. Don't ult until she ults.
Dodge the game. He trades way better than you. Buy Warden's Mail early. Take ignite. You can try level 2 trade. After Warden's Mail, he won't really damage you. Be careful post 6 tho.
Early bramble. Don't try level 1. You can try level 3. Don't eat his Q3 and W. Post 6 you can ult him in his E and he will be stuck there but I don't recommend this as he will use E again and become unstoppable. İf he uses his E, ult him. Dodge his R. Don't fight late game since this meta is for them.
A good Darius will shit on you. If he walks up to you, run. Don't try level 1. Dodge his Q. Don't ever try to fight him. Poke with Q.After he is down enough, wait for 6. After you are 6, if he near 40%, you can ult him. Try to dodge his Q though. If he stacks 5 hemorrhages, use your W. Don't ever use W before as he won't use ult if he doesn't hit 5 stacks.
Ranged. The difference between other ranged champions and him is you can interrupt his ult and E with your E. Play safe until 6. After 6, wait him to use E and ult him.
You can try level 1. If she opens W level 2, wait for her shroud and trade her. Don't ever ult her if she has his shroud up. Some of the Akali players will dive you if they hit E and have ult up. E yourself to pull them to your tower.
Do not, I mean DO NOT ult him when he has passive. Always try to break his passive with your E. Always take ignite this matchup. Rush bramble.
Another ranged champion. Take ghost this time. Don't fight him until he becomes Mega Gnar. Mega is a lot easy to kite and fight because he is melee. You can ult him after he becomes Mega. Don't miss your E or he will kite you a lot.
This doll... Creatura. Don't try level 1. Don't all-in when she has W up. Dodge her R. Don't ult when she has W up.
Depends on the Irelia. Dodge her E. Don't stay near minions as she will just Q them, stack passive and heal. Ult him after she ults. Don't fight when she has his passive stacked.
Same with Gnar, fight when he has his hammer. Dodge his plasma ball. Bait his E when he is in the hammer form. Don't get kited. Post 6 is easy. Take teleport.
Dodge his Q3. Don't ult him when he uses W. Don't full combo him when he uses W since he gets damage reduction. Don't stay near walls or he will ult you. He is a tank so you should be alright.
Kayle is here because she outscales you pretty hard. Just zone her. After 6, bait his ult. You can ult her if she is low enough. Take ignite. You are 1000x stronger in the early game so you should use it. She can take minions with Q and E, that's ok.
Another ranged. Dodge his Q. Don't let him stack passives. Bait his E and combo him. Don't use ult when he uses ult. Wait for the stun end and ult him. I usually take ghost but you can take teleport.
Asus... same with Kayle. Buy bramble early. Don't ult until he ults.
New Neeko is annoying. Dodge her E. Ult her when he uses her W and E. Take ghost since she runs like Usain Bolt.
Easy. Take ghost. Try to poke him a lot. Don't let him proxy. Post 6 is easy. Don't try to follow him after your combo. Use your ghost when you ult.
I don't get why people play this in top lane. Take ignite. Don't get poked by Q. Stay infront of minions so his E hits the minions. Rush bramble. Ignite him when he uses ult.
Demon itself. Don't get poked until level 2. Full combo him at level 2 and run him down. Don't try to chase him level 3 as he will just W and run away. Try to full combo him. Rush Rylai. Get oracle lens at level 6.
Don't try until level 6. Poke him with Q's. Buy bramble. Don't ult if he doesn't ult since he steals more stats than you do.
I take ghost and ignite. Don't eat his stacked Q. Bait his W and all in. Post 6 you can ult him if he used W. Rush bramble. Don't fight him late game.
Don't try level 1. Take ignite. Rush bramble. Try to dodge his ult by flashing or moving. After bramble and Rylai you should kill him. Don't fight him if he rushes BotRK.
Take ignite. Don't try level 1. Level 3 you can fight him. Level 6 don't ult if he has W. Rush bramble. When he E's you, use your W to negate his damage. Poke with Q.
This matchup is easy but new Mordekaiser players can struggle against him. Don't try to trade him level 1. After 3, try to poke him down. You can negate his W damage with your W. Post 8 (not 6, 8) you beat him pretty hard.
She isn't a problem until she buys QSS. Level 1 you beat her pretty hard. Don't get hit by Q's. Level 2 you can try fighting but be careful to not eat her tentacles. DODGE HER E ALWAYS. Post 6 wait her to use ult, then you can use your ult and beat the shit out of her. If she buys Black Cleaver and QSS, it's time to leave the lane. Also buy bramble in case you can't dodge her tentacles.
You can try level 1. After level 3, you beat her. Rush steelcaps if you are behind. Be careful when you ult as she can cancel it with her ult. Don't fight her late game.
When he tries to Q you at level 1, answer him with your Q. You will beat him hard level 1. Don't fight level 2. Level 3 you beat him hard. Be careful at level 6. If he is clever, he will Q you when you are low health so you can't use W to his ult. When you are at 50%, use W and ult. Try to freeze the lane. DO NOT LET HIS PASSIVE REGEN HIS HEALTH.
They play him a lot in the top lane. When he E's, try to dodge it. If you think you can't dodge his E's, E him. So he will be near you and you can trade him easily. Don't get poked a lot. Post 6 is easy.
Do not, I mean do not try to fight him early. He is a monster. Don't eat free Q's. Poke him with your Q. Rush steelcaps because his stacked W counts as auto attack. Pre 3 he will obliterate you. Post 6 is easy. Wait him use W or E and ult him.
Father Ornn... You beat the shit out of him. Don't eat level 1 Q and you can trade him. But be careful at level 2 since his W has an amazing damage. At level 3, don't eat his E stun (his Q pillar and terrain stuns you) and you will be fine. W his W passive. Post 6 ult him when he uses ult so he can't use his ult. Don't use E or R when he uses W since it makes him unstoppable.
Just like Pantheon, respect his early game. Don't eat free Q's. If he attacks you with empowered W, don't use your W. If you see him use E to you, use your E to pull him towards you. Don't use ult if he doesn't use ult. Rush steelcaps.
Take ignite. Rush steelcaps and bramble. That's it.
Don't try to trade him pre 2. After 3, you beat him in all-ins. Don't use ult if he doesn't use his.
Mordekaiser is the biggest counter of Shen. If he has ignite, he can kill you. I mean it. He is much more stronger at level 2 than you. Post 3 is easy. Post 6 is literally free kill lane. You can interrupt his ult with your E.
Watch out for the bushes at level 1 as he can Q you from the bush. Bully him early. Level 2 try to interrupt his Q. Post 6 is free kill.
I don't know if people play this champion in top lane but be careful level 1. His E is very strong. Don't trade until level 3. Do not use your ult if he doesn't use first. Wait for him to use it, after that you can use it.
Don't try level 1. Rush steelcaps, bramble if you are behind. Poke him hard with Q. You can try all in level 3 if he is low. You fuck him hard in ult. Dodge his E. Use your W when you are at like 30% because of the Last Stand and his ult executes at 25%.
If he took lethal tempo, don't fight him level 1. If he uses his E to minions, attack him. He can obliterate you early game so be careful. If he is smart, he will cancel your ult with his ult. You outscale him. Buy bramble if you are behind.
Don't fight until level 3. Dodge his tornado. He can dodge your Q and E with minions so be careful. Post 6 is easy as long as you dodge his tornado. Rush Warden's Mail.
Bully him early game. Be careful, if he hits his E and positions his W just negate the damage with W and try to break the cage. Post 6 wait him to use his ult and W and ult him. You outscale him.
Same with Urgot, use your W at low health. Easy lane, bully him early.
Easy lane. Don't get poked by his Q. Poke him with E and Q. Level 3 try to all-in. Post 6 is free kill.
Easy lane. Get bramble early. Stay safe and poke with Q pre 3, after that just fight.
Another tank. Be careful level 1, she can damage a little. Post 3 is free. Post 6 is literally free kill.
Free lane. Poke with Q. Easy.
Some people play Skarner top. I like Skarner. Easy lane. Be careful tho, he can setup ganks pretty easily. Be careful, he can use his ult and pull you to his tower.
Another tank. Play safe until level 3 since he deals a lot in the early game. Post 6 is free.
He heals a lot. Other than that, easy lane.
