So lets say Caitlyn went versus a Viktor mid. Assuming equal, decent skill on both players, what happens?

Cait harasses early, Vik loses a little bit of CS. Vik calls for a jungler gank and it succeeds OR fails and he gets a hold. Vik and Cait go back.

Vik gets a couple rings, hits 6, gets blue and stomps cait the rest of the game.

:D

^or vik can get an hourglass and be Ace in the Hole free for the rest of the game while heavily countering Caits damage.

Do they both get blue? I ask because Cait is going to have a much easier time harassing with Piltover Peacemaker-spam than Vik will with Death Ray-spam; Death Ray is just so much easier to dodge. Plus it pretty much guarantees that Cait will have mana to use her escape if things get hairy.

Although they both have very good poke range, Cait should be more able to poke often, if she uses both skills and her passive to poke Vik.

It also depends on what items they rush. If Cait rushes Hexdrinker (and/or Wit's End), Vik is going to have a much harder time killing her, and that may swing the lane in her favor. Especially given that Vik doesn't have a cheap AP + Armor item that he can rush.

Finally, the outcome of the game is going to have a lot to do with how well each player can do zone denial. Cait is more able to deny certain parts of the map with her traps, but Vik's Gravity Field is much more maneuverable as the dynamics of the lane change.

Vik should have an advantage, because AP carries have a better early game than AD carries in general, but as with every match-up this isn't as cut and dry as one champion winning over the other every time.

I'd say Viktor wins, cait has the early harass but Viktor is so much stronger than her after level 4. Caitlyn's skillset is rather weak for her harassment while Viktor's get's stronger as he ranks them up.

But I think there are very few skilled Viktor players out there atm
Thanks for the Signature MissMaw!

Viktor has a stronger lane game, with hes Life Transfer and Laser he does a lot more burst then Caitlyn thus winning every trade. AP mages are ment to kill AD carries, while AD carries are ment to kill everythang 'late-game'.

What PSI said. You let AP carry go mid because of high-damage comboed skills which will grow stronger early game due to more xp gain than duo line. AD carry tend to focus on mid-end game sustained dps which comes from their farm.

Piltover Peacemaker has a channel time and fires in a predictable, straight line. All you have to do is start boots and you can dodge it over half the time easily.

Viktor's Death Ray casts instantly and travels in an unpredictable direction. It is far easier to land and actually outranges Cait's Q if cast at max range and directed outward.

If you have an easy time dodging Vik's E (or a hard time landing it), you haven't played against very many good Viktor players.

My point was rather that Death Ray has a much slower missile speed, making it easier to react to and get out of the way of at near max range, once the skill has been fired. The instant cast (which I had forgotten to consider) brings them more in line, but isn't really that much of a boon to Vik except if we're analyzing the two trading their skillshots. Still, neither are exactly difficult to dodge.
