hi all, I hve been playing lol for 3 few weeks now .. mostly with ryze and swain mid...

with Swain I find i can beat a lot of oponents who has a bit of range on me by using my root to stop them from last hitting and since i have a little bit of tankyness i can give them the first attack and still walk in and do a full combo... however a few times now i have played vs Catlyn Mid and i got completeluy decimated .... i dont know how i can ****er her massive range

any ideas on what i cn do to counter champs with big range as swain

Well some of the things you can do vs cait is to:
A) Rush Hextech Revolver so you can ignore a good bit of her poke through spellvamp
B) Get a philosopher's stone so you can regen her harass (both of these last two are assuming you can dodge at least SOME of her shots)
C) Learn what her CD's are, dodge the long range harass she has, then counter her when she has no way to trade effectively with you
D) Play a push champ like Mordekaiser and keep her *** glued to her turret all day long so she misses farm and you come out on top late game because you have more cash than she does
E) Have someone from a different lane come over to yours and gank her a couple of times so you can come out on top in lane and half-health her with a couple of spells
F) Profit!

Hope this helped

Personally I would just say be up in her face and aggressive as Swain. Assuming you are starting Boots of Speed + 3 Health Potions, then you should be able to just run up to her Torment, Decrepify and maybe a few autos then back out. Once you get to 6, you can just repeat the above combo and turn your ulti on to heal back harass.

I would recommend getting a few Doran's Rings to relieve some of your squishiness, and then get a Liandry's Torment. That should give you a good amount of damage and health, as well as mana regen so you can play aggressively against Cait.

If I helped you, click that +rep!

Play aggressive, Caitlyn stands no chance against Swain in trades or fights. What you're probably doing is letting her hit you a lot for free and getting too scared to try anything. Swain is a bully in lane if you can force trades, if you can hit Nevermove on her after level 6 you can likely even kill her straight up. Doesn't matter if she hits you 2 or 3 times while you're walking up to her, your combo will deal much more damage than a few autoattacks. Just try to dodge Piltover Peacemaker.

Armour runes would help too but since you're new I guess you probably don't have them.

I'm sure regardless of what you do, you should be successful in a Caitlin and Swain matchup, particularly with the Swain ult that will entirely annihilate her. Her passive and her Q can be really annoying, especially when she's in the bushes, but overall you should be able to beat her. I don't play Swain, but from what I have seen and when I play Caitlin against him, he's generally able to beat me.

Yeah solo ADCs tend to lose to APCs in general.
