Everyone has a problem with one champion, and this time its Nunu. I'm having a hard time countering them early-mid game. Good survivability, strong nuke with OP slow

So, any tips?

Stun....stun....and stun again. Basically if you stop his ult you can stop alot of his damage. The slow= merc treads.

yeah for the slow tenacity is good, so are champs with built-in tenacity (irelia), for his ult just disrupt it with a silence/****up/movething/fling/pull/stun, the survivability (im guessing you said that because of his E and how players usually get health items on him) there isnt much you can do other than try to keep him away from minions

I haven't seen a Nunu in weeks.
Just gotta displace or disrupt him during ult, if you playing a mage pick up Zhonya's Hourglass, otherwise pack flash.

not going to lie i've never had a probably with nunu unless i was on a squishy champ. malph is a nice counter champ because you can slow him back the same, but with ground slam you do much more slowing than he. and ofc his ult knocks him out of his ulti

I haven't seen a Nunu in a long time, so I can't speak for any changes to him made in the last couple patches. Generally speaking I try to keep Flash up unless I know that Nunu used his ult recently, I pack tenacity, and I don't wander far from teammates with a stun.

Numbers. If a Nunu is in sight, make sure to be in a group and not 1v1'ing him.

Playing Irelia playing vs Nunu?

Assuming you're a competent Irelia, farm Trinity force and kill him. All you need is HoG and Philo stone, and don't get caught with 1hp. Stun him when he ults and the rest is history.

Hell even if you don't stun him when he ults you're probably fine.
