The title says eerything. I see more and more really good Ryze going mid, as I climb ELO, and I can't seem to EVER be able to win my lane vs him. I play a lot of mid champ, but mostly Cassiopeia.

Any tips on how I could at least keep up in CS agaisnt him?

+rep me and you'll get good karma, wich means you won't be reincarnated into a rock! Isn't that awesome?

But yes this idea has been discussed more than Pam Anderson's tits in a plastic surgeons office.

get champs that have big range against him. so like Lux Brand Swain, or any long ranged AD since Ryze will have magic resist not armor (most of the time anyways). harass him with those long ranged spells and he'll be going back to base constantly to heal. If you have a good jungler try to steal the enemy blue buff.

Click +Rep if you thought I was helpful please! Also check out my Ryze build!
I will Ryze to the occasion... hur hur

I'm pretty sure that Cassiopeia is considered the ultimate counter to Ryze.

Shoot his mana bar off. :P

But how is Cass a counter to Ryze? Explain Luther, I'm curious. :)

Cass counters everything.

But seriously Ryze's early game isn't that good, he has good harass but his Q range is short which means he has to run right into range of Cass's Q. One Q and Cass can spam E like five times and take away half his health or more. Her burst and her harass are far superior.

Your problem is probably playing too defensively earlygame and/or letting him harass you for free.

Makes sense. I haven't had to deal with a Ryze in so long that I forgot how he works a bit.

I'm going to hijack this thread, how do you counter a full mana page Ryze with Cassio? Ryze hits insane high damage at low levels with his Q.

I've never tried a full mana page on Ryze but I'm pretty sure one Q still won't hurt as much as Cass's Q+E+E+E etc combo. As I said before his Q is short range so it's really not that hard to tell when he's going to use it on you. As a melee champion you'll have a lot of difficulty with last hitting without getting harassed, but it shouldn't be too hard on an AP mid as long as you're aware of your surroundings.

What ultimately counters Ryze is range, he has a shorter range then most AP mids so use that to your advantage. Hes most vulnerable early on being quite squishy, running oom fairly quickly and not dealing out any scary damage.

You can safely harass Ryze with Noxious Blast, but as said above even when he has a full mana page Cassiopeia should come out at early trades all the time unless your not running any AP quints in which case you shouldn't expect to be on top of trades.

Ryze's early game is considered terrible. He doesn't deal an extreme amount of damage but throughout the game he'll really hurt you with his spammable Overload. If he gets Tear of the Goddess he's going to be a bit more squishy in lane. Try to out-damage him and get a jungler to help you gank because he's very squishy especially if he isn't rushing Banshee's Veil. He also cannot pull stuns so when he snares you down with Rune Prison you can still use your skills effectively. The most powerful counters to Ryze mid include Cassiopeia, Malzahar, and even Ziggs. Anti-casters won't be as strong against him but they'll do just fine as well.
