Hi, I play Solo top for a team and my main 2 champs are Renekton and Garen. I was wondering because i dont know a whole lot about the two champs other than that they are both strong picks for the lane. I was wondering if anyone could tell me when i should pick one over the other? Say M/U wise or my own team comp wise when i should play which one? Another question i have is that if there are any champs that beat both Ren and Garen top lane what champs then counter that one? Please help.

Edit: I do occasionally do play Tryn solo top as well but i dont even know when to pick tryn aside from if we need a AD carry. When do i play him solo top and who is he strong against?

Add me and PM me later tonight. I'll answer these questions you've got.

Tryn is super strong and I have a guide on how/why to play him if you need a reference.

Garen isnt that good pick, neither to solo top nor to do anything else. He just walks, silences and spin (and KS with the ult). He's really vulnerable to ranged damage, and can be easily countered by armor

Renekton is a nice pick, he can 1v1 well and can hold the lane 1v2

Olaf is a good choice, he has lifesteal with W and a good long-ranged damage with Q

Irelia can solo well, her W has passive "lifesteal" (it heals a fixed amount), easy-mode farm with Q abd a good nuke with E

Cho'Gath has an excelent sustain because of his passive, long-ranged damage and tons of CC

I've always felt Garen was annoying to lane against, but fairly bland once teamfights start. His silence can screw your AP, but why would you ever let him get in range to use it?

Kite all day eryday.
