Recently i faced a shen solo top, once he got level 6 it seemed he was all over the map. I took TP aswell to try and follow him but he would always illude me or i was to late. My bot lane was yelling at me to follow him more, and i was trying my best. My jungler told me to stay top and just farm and take the tower. Shen was getting the other team a lot of kills and my record was 0-0-0 so it looked like i wasn't contributing. If this happens again what should i do?

It's Shen.

The best thing you can really do is make sure he loses farm or towers when he teleports away and hope your team isn't derping too hard.

You have a few options:
- Dominate Shen in lane so he can't freely teleport
- Push his tower and eventually get his 2nd/3rd tower
- Counterjungle while Shen is away and take the buffs
- Gank midlane

Teleporting after him usually isn't a good option, since he is already there and it will take you at least another 5 Seconds until you can help. That's usually too late

Play draft exclusively so you can ban OP champs?

League isn't fully balanced.

push hard, there's no way you can keep up with shen, period. So you have to punish him for using his ultimate/teleport

Ran into Shen the other day playing a full premade in draft normals. Our captain failed to ban him (a terrible accident indeed, but not his fault), and I had picked Wukong to solo top thinking Shen was out of the question. I almost pooped myself when their last pick suddenly popped up as Shen.

Shen is indeed a nightmare to lane against. However I learned a couple things very quickly that might help you out in the future.

1) Buy wards and push your lane HARD. Shen is a fairly slow farmer, combine that with any attempts to use Stand United and you can absolutely roll him from a CS perspective.

2) Knock ups and silences WILL interrupt the channel of Stand United. PAY ATTENTION to Shen's positioning. If he randomly starts to drop back out of sight, run forward and interrupt it. In my case Cyclone has a shorter cooldown than Stand United, so I was able to interrupt all of his channels except one (when I was not in my lane). This makes a huge difference for your team, and it will 100% make their Shen rage. It's a dangerous operation, since smart Shen's will generally be under their tower when they attempt to channel it, but 9/10 you can run in, interrupt him, and retreat without dying. If you can, do it, because wherever he is going you can almost guarantee your ally(ies) will be dying as a result.

3) Ban Shen.

Shen can't be punished. Losing a wave or two of exp and dropping a tower isn't as high impact as global map control/presence all game long.

Just ban him until he gets nerfed. He's the most OP champ since release day Leblanc.

Thoughts on playing AP Janna top vs. Shen?

Ppl have said you pick her when you can't win your lane. In this case she can farm and push HARD if Shen leaves, and is very hard to gank. Oh, and she has a knockup and a knockback, good for interrupting his Stand United. I have never thought of it before, but it sounds decent to me. Just be careful not to get owned early by him taunting you. Stay back and farm / push. ^.^

Basically just to be like "Screw you Shen, I'm not letting you leave this lane!" ;D
Thanks to GrandMasterD for my sig!
