League of Legends (LoL) Question: Heimerdinger Support counter

    Heimerdinger Support counter

    I've wound up playing against a Heim supp a few times, and it seems like I can't really counter him with anything I know of, He does so much damage, and it's hard to even pressure lane because of his turrets, I'm just wondering what is a good champ or something I can do to counter him in the first 10 minutes or so of laning.

    A good Heimerdinger support will not take his lanes farm any more then any other support (unless they are playing in an asinine manner). Well placed turrets provide protection without compromising farm.

    Caitlyn is a good counter ADC, because she out ranges the turrets most of the time (big shots not withstanding). Aoe damage doesn't matter because a good Heimer won't cluster.

    As for supports, the heavy tanks are going to be the best. Brahm, because he can block Heimer's everything when done well, Alistar because he can Ult and Heimer's turrets won't matter because they can't get through the 90% dr (or whatever it is this day and age) and Tahm Kench because the turrets will be stuck hitting his shield.

    I break down by thoughts on various match ups in my Heimer Support guide if you want a little more!

    Also remember to have the ADC crack those turrets asap. Early game Heimer cannot produce turrets very fast, so if you knock them down he wont be able to easily replace them.

    Riven is a complete counter of Heimerdinger. Maybe try like full tank riven support to counter him? And i think full tank support Riven wouldn't even be that bad if the team has one or no tanks.

    I don't know who counters Heimerdinger support, but I know who counters Heimerdinger in lanes

    Such as Syndra, Brand.

    If your playing against a Heimerdinger support, pick up some high range like Caitlyn and Varus or someone that have huge AoE damage like Jinx or supports like Bard and Alistar

    Heimerdinger support will tend to ks their ADC's farms, so its like a double-edged sword support, that can push out the lane and pressure enemies but also affects ADC as well, consider asking your jungler to camp their ADC and make him tilt worse :)
