What is your opinion of Caitlyn now in season 3?
She is ridiculously overplayed and for good reason, her range gives her the safest laning phase in the game and being a brilliant counter to kill lane bots she really shines in the current meta.

What I want to know is, how do you play against her? How does anyone beat her? Who is her best counter?

I personally find passively sitting back and farming and sustaining through her poke. You can't beat her in lane so.. why not just win teamfights? While you not get as much farm as her, MOST adc's outscale her into mid/late game.
As for her best counter my money would be on Varus.

Depends on the support, quite honestly. Someone that can reach/lock down Caitlyn can help any carry beat her.

Draven is the best bet though imo, because he can beat her through sheer raw power over her.

I have mixed feelings on Cait right now. I feel like she can be strong, but she isn't the best.

Thank you Miss Maw, CasterMaster and Arcana3 for the sweet sigs. I'd definitely recommend you to anyone looking for a nice sig.

No they don't, Cait is actually one of the better lategame ADs. Only Trist/Kog/Vayne outscale Cait. The best thing to do in lane is force a fight with her but it's difficult given her range and E. If you don't have the right support you're pretty boned regardless of what you pick or do.

P.S. I played Caitlyn before the first time she became popular and got nerfed in 2011, I am so godamn hipster right now you guys don't even

Not as hipster as me with Ezreal. I played him back when people used to ragequit if they even thought you might play him. #Exaggerations(TM)

Is Draven really that solid against her?
With a support like Lulu or Janna I don't think Draven would be able to lock her down, even with someone like Leona or Taric.
Plus being the queen of poke, Caitlyn naturally counters kill lanes by poking them down making it difficult to engage.

Draven doesn't take **** and usually has a hyper aggressive support to back him up. A good Draven will trade with her before she starts poking to show her whos boss. He wins any actual trades with her and is fast enough to get up to hit her as well as dodge her Q with relative ease.

Draven is stronger at burst, in a straight up fight and wins trades if he can actually get into range for them. He's pretty **** at waveclearing though which is bad considering Caitlyn lanes always push hard and she's also stronger late game.
