so, i havent met that much rivens up top because im usually to low in the draft picklist to get top (top is most populair spot imo).

But, last time when i got top.. i had to go against a riven..and i virtually had no clue what to pick.


most of my top-picks:

Cho will get slaughtered if riven keeps agressive

Renekton.. too high cooldowns imo, has sustain but agressive riven will win because she can stun/burst more

GP.. maybe with sustain and lots of armor (armor runes+wiggles)

Irelia.. weak earlygame vs strong earlygame riven

Kennen.. possible but possible to get a bit zoned

Lee sin.. He can escape towards minions, slow riven and lifesteal+shield. Gave him the best changes

Nasus..his lifesteal will get him far, but his mana will be an issue on a spamming riven.

Galio.. lol

So, knowing riven and the champs that i usually take. I couldnt think of any champion that is a serious, hands down counter to riven.


does anyone have a idea?

You start cloth/5 hpots? Apparently that and armor runes win vs. riven :P Also you can try giving good ol' teemo a try vs her.

Supposedly two of the better counters are Kennen and Ryze. Ryze because his snare stops her movement, and Kennen because he's ranged and has a stun as well. But I also feel she doesn't really have a hard counter since no one has quite her kit of no mana, spammable shield, stun, and knock up.

I think Garen can beat her too actually.

i actually had some trouble vs irelia who rushed wriggles(not sure if common never played ireliaz before) he just regen all hp back when im on cooldowns and it turned out to be just passive farming fest cause harassin her was pointless and it actually hurt me more than her

I was able to do well as Cho'gath by starting with Cloth + 5 pots.

Just focus on farming when she is harassing you. If she tries to commit to the fight, then silence and stun her and walk away, wait for her to retreat then keep killing minions. Once you hit 6 and start gaining stacks of feast, she kinda just flutters around you like a butterfly while not doing much. I literally ignored her most of the time, maybe I screamed at her a bit every once in a while. Flash Feast is always a nice little kill combo against a Riven that doesn't expect it.

Kennen, biggest counter to her atm. she so good against most melee ad, so when it comes to range, and further more AP range she's fucked. They like to get wrigles (armor) and you do magic damage and can't ever come close to you.

If you got zoned Ginko you played like a pussy :P

Well i havent played kennen vs Riven. So it was just a thought

I have played morgana vs riven..that was fucking impossible.


But, i can see why kennen and ryze are good counters. ryze because he can go frozenheart and just recieve no dmg in the end and poke lots back. And kennen can stay safe for a long time and chip her health off. I guess that its time that i really learn Ryze. He can be op as fuck when played right i guess.

Garen works very well.

She relies on comboing her abilities for damage and such, you silence makes her waste her stun with little to show for it.

Plus you have better sustain.

Could see Cho working well too, silence + knock up + sustain.

I think a strong AP carry toplane can shut down Riven fairly easily.
Ryze and Kennen are the heroes come to mind.
