Right now one of the best champions available, but Ryze counters her pretty well. When taking her on, be sure to dodge those abilities and you'll destroy her. Root her as soon as she ults cause it'll give you time for another cast.
A hard match up, killing her is very hard and you'll probably need to reside with just farming up until you can get a strong gank.
Watch for her stun, her level 6 combo will do a TON of damage to you, so be careful and stay at top health. While her stun is ready, stay away from her. But as soon as she 'wastes' it to kill a minion, punish her as hard as you can then back up.
One of the hardest champions you'll fight. Her burst is way higher than yours early, so farm safely as possible. Avoid her poison whenever possible. Try to ban her if you can
Good damage and burst, she'll be hard. Avoid her Q though, and you'll be able to win trades very well. Once she has her ult, be ready for some strong burst. Just above melee range, be sure to
her when she goes in to CC.
Not a terribly common pick mid, but when he does go mid, you'll want to check his items often so you know if he is going AP or AD. If AP, avoid his W. Be sure to remember that it goes through minions. If AD, get your
early and laugh as he tries to trade with you. Remember, your root will prevent him from using his E to teleport away.
Not an easy match up, particularly if the fizz is aggressive. Punish him when he goes to cs or gets close. If he tries to use his E to get away. As soon as he lands,
him and then punish as hard as you can.
A hard match, particularly once he starts to get large amount of MR. Hopefully your jungle is physical damage so they can hit hard during ganks.
His Q has good range, and he has rather good sustain in lane. Try to poke and be sure to dodge those barrels and you should be okay. When he charges, he hits surprisingly hard with his AA, so
and walk way.
Annoying, try to AA his turrets when you get the chance, just to pass time. You have slightly more range than then, so at max AA, you can freely poke them with auto attacks. Also, watch for that stun of his, dodge left or right and it'll miss.
A common match up, try to keep your poke up while dodging as many of his Q's as possible. If you kill him be sure to run the hell away. Also, his ult can damage you no matter where you are, do not have less health than its damage. 250/400/550 + (60% of ability power)
A hard champion to fight, but early on you can really punish him before he starts to scale well. When he comes in to CS or poke at you with his silence, hit him with a
then run at him. Ideally, you'll be able to
after the silence and then do a quick spam of spells. Causing you with win most of the trades. Careful though, cause he can teleport to you and away, so remember that whenever you are low on health play like, he is about 600 range closer to you than it looks.
Punish her whenever you get the chance, at low levels you are much stronger. But once 6 rolls around, you need to be careful of that ult. Once her ult isn't hitting you though, you can freely poke her with abilities only. All of your abilities have more range. Also, be careful when she hits you with her bouncing blade. Wait till the debuff falls off to prevent her combo damage.
When he goes into a ball of electricity, try to run in a straight line from him. That, and use minions to dodge his Q whenever possible. This'll allow you to prevent being stunned and prevent him from using his W on you which hits everyone who has his stun debuff. Once level 6, his ult does good damage and can lead to an easy stun on you, stay at maximum range as much as possible and you should be okay.
Similar to Kass, when she comes into poke, run at her so you can try and trade. Also be sure to get off your Q every time to teleports next to you to silence and damage you. If you manage to dodge her root, it'll be hard for her to setup a gank for her jungler.
A counter to you, I do not like laning against him. When he puts his spell on your minions, it'll keep pushing until their all dead. Be sure to push very hard whenever he casts it. Also, keep in mind that his burst is almost non existent early on, so try and trade often. Dodge his silence by running either straight at or away from him.
A mean champion to lane against. Watch his mana bar closely, cause that is his current shield strength. Whenever it gets low, try to attack him and get off a combo before he can hurt you back and build his shield back up.
This champion is an expert of kill minions and wait behind tower until next way. Whenever she casts her pool under minions, be prepared to try to push so you don't get pushed back to tower instantly. Also, dodge her root, it lasts for what seems like forever. Also, do not get super close after level 6 even to bounce a couple
. Her ult can stun you there, and then have her root you leaving you cc'd for far too long and sets up a perfect gank for her jungle.
Her long range makes her really hard to deal with, remember her attack coems from her ball. So when she casts it near you, move away from the ball, not her. If she overextends, do as much damage as you can. Your burst is higher. Also, her ult will pull you into her ball, so watch out for that particularly because it can setup a gank really well.
Ryze vs Ryze can't happen in ranked, but should it happen during a normal game your best bet is to be sure to get off more spells during trades. Poke at maximum range and then run away quickly, getting
early can help a lot with that.
This match is hard, try to destroy his shield quickly so he can't recast it to explode on command and forces him to wait till 10 seconds have passsed. Try to root him when you see his stun coming, and that'll prevent him from being able to AA you too much.
An annoying mid to fight against, but dodge his cards and your burst is higher. Also, watch the cards on top of his head, yellow is a stun and red is an aoe slow. Also, once level 6, remember he can leave lane instantly, when he does that, you either have to choose to push lane as hard as you can or run to wherever he is ganking.
For him, be sure to get your
early on to deal with his stun. Once you have that, an easy champion to lane against. He has no escape and his ult doesn't scale NEARLY as well as it does against other APs. Do your thing and dodge his W to win.
Dodge his Q and stay out of his stun and you'll win. He does pretty good burst, but not like you. Also, his cloud does great damage so run away from it with
to avoid as much as possible.
You have WAY more burst, particularly early on. Also, his abilities all have long cooldowns, so poke often to really dominate. Once he can pool himself, try to keep moving towards him and root him when he pops up to get to do even more damage during a trade.
His range is annoying, but if you dodge his Q consistently you should be fine. He can't farm too much with his spells cause he'll go OOM very quickly that way, so punish him when he CS's. Also, pre-6, you have WAY more burst, get in there and put the hurt on.
An incredibly powerful champion, has more range than you, and her root goes through minions. Be sure to be ready to dodge that, and destroy her plants whenever she makes them. Poke when she goes into CS with AA. Also, be sure to get
early so you can dodge her Q.
