I know Poppy is extremely squishy early on and gets countered by most early game.
Example Caitlyn usually can eat at her early game because of her range.

Just wondering who thinks who is a great counter for Poppy all game round and why. :)

DoTs and a ranged champ are ideal. Perhaps Swain?

Ap champs have the advantage automatically since Paragon of Demacia only provides armor, not MR. On top of that, any AP champ with a hard CC works wonders since her only escape mechanism is her ult, which even then, she would still be attacked by whoever she ulted.

Suggestions would be:
Malzahar
Ryze
Swain
Maybe Lux or Morgana but you better be good with skill shots :3
Wanna know what item is the bestest evar?! Here you go :) :)

She doesn't get countered by nearly as many champions as you may think. Her passive is very strong and you can rune to counter most damage early game and come out ahead. None of the above mentioned champions actually counter Poppy~

One of the most effective counters would be Olaf due to his true damage which completely ignores Poppy's passive.

I need to test that.

I wasn't necessarily meaning that those champs specifically counter poppy. Just that they work well against her. Though i've never tried Olaf against her before, the whole true damage passing through the passive i've never heard of. I'll need to try that.

Yeah, my first thought was Irelia or Olaf because, of the true damage they do.

I know champions with CC wreck her at least in my experience. I usually do really well till I get hit by a skill shot CC or am focused.

I've only faced Irelia like 4-5 times solo top as Poppy and she was a pain.
I've never really faced Olaf as Poppy and the more I think of it the more I'm happy I haven't. XD

Low sustained damage champs or champs with good, frequent poke.
You're not going to beat her 1v1 if you're both gung-ho about it and fight to the death.
Magic damage works best as her W only gives armor.

In order to beat her damage though, you have to itemize for both damage resists as she can change whenever she wants just by lowering her damage output slightly.
