This counter data is for Maokai Support in Plat+ games. The percent shown is the enemy champion's counter rating against Maokai. Counter rating is our own statistic that factors in counter kills, overall kills, early lead ratio, comeback ratio, and win percent to give the whole picture of that champion's effectiveness as a counter pick.
