Hey guys,

Recently started watching some high elo streams to try to improve my gameplay a bit. I've noticed in a lot of the ranked games I've seen, Nidalee gets banned alot. I know she has high split push potential, but I was wondering if someone could go into more detail about why she is such a common ban? Is she more suited to top or mid? And is it AD Nidalee they try to ban out, or AP Nidalee? Any thoughts on why she is commonly banned in high ELO is appreciated. Thanks!

because shes amazing in two comps, split push and poke comps, in a splitpush comp she can get a warmogs and be an AD bruiser and split push all day and survive because she can just jump away and in a poke comp she can build ap and kill people with spears

also her traps are annoying because of the debuffs you get from stepping on it but i doubt her traps are why shes banned

She is just that champion that scales too well with the player's skills... Kinda like Twisted Fate and Lee Sin too. Pros just make too much out of her huge versatile kit. Landing most of your spears as AP nid can be extremely powerful

I HATE PLAYING VS NID OMG SO ANNOYING

Mid she rapes people roams really well and spears instakill everything

top you can't stop her from pushing no matter what, if you try to help your team you lose inhib, and it's impossible to catch her and fight her.

FAK

I think with the % before flat, her traps are pretty ridiculous because it's basically a free void staff + last whisper for your team, and it lasts 12 seconds which is definitely long enough.

Ap nid is just a farm lane, but when she pushes, she can just pounce and prowl to the enemy lane, throw a few spears, jump in for a kill/assist, and go back to her lane. Landing 1 spear is still awesome for the lane because they do A LOT.

A good nidalee will win her lane after she gets a gold lead by ganking. Also, she can force the enemy out of their lane by landing a lucky spear in lane, or landing a spear when the enemy is coming back to the lane (if they just GANKED bot, you can land a spear as they walk back).

apnidalees strenght is hardly in laning imo
she CAN roam, but only if her opponent makes several mistakes. Against most midlaners nid will never be able to cougarpush the lane because if she did, she would take way too much harass and maybe even die.
If she manages to push her lane and go roam its amazing tho because she is so fast and appears on sidelanes after only a few seconds of mia. Her ganks themselves arent that good but usually a little damage suffices to kill a 2v2 botlane
