No one really destroys Riven, unless you are a terrible player. Riven has no traditional counters, except for maybe Jax and Irelia.
Fairly easy matchup, you negate most of his damage with your E.
Although his R deals true damage, you are much stronger because of the stats it gives you.
Just combo him,
away to take less damage from his Q.
Also another fairly easy matchup, he doesn't do a lot of damage besides he can wave clear very quickly.
If he silences you, force him to blow his cooldowns on E and Q, by using
and then just use
to beat him in the trade.
Beware of facechecking a brush though, he can do some hefty damage if you're not looking.
If this is AD nid, it's going to be a very fun early game for you before she hits 6.
Just try to kill her before 6, because then she becomes quite stronger at 6.
Combo her, as she can not do any damage besides harass before level 6.
Extremely easy matchup, if you beat her pre-level 6.
He is super easy, even when you've been blinded. Just harass him with your Q's, and you'll dominate him.
His harass is super annoying, but you will be able to kill him quite easily due to how squishy he is.
Also very easy, just block his 'Parrrley' and you'll be able to dominate him in trades.
If he does harass you until you're low, you'll end up being able to trade with him because he will be out of mana.
Just block his Q, and you'll be great.
Poppy is easy, fairly easy.
Just look at her weapon, and wait for when you see the Q activation, she will try to jump on you to use it. Just use your
to absorb it, and then
+ 3 AA's and
to win the trade.
At level 6 though, her ult will make it hard for you if you're trying to kill her or she's diving you.
Just be wary of that, otherwise you should be able to dominate her.
Just absorb his Q with your E, and jump onto him when he has his abilities on cooldown.
You'll force a pool, and then if he's foolish enough to come back and farm you'll just be able to quickly snipe him down.
This is a fairly easy lane, besides those annoying random crits every once and a while.
Just dominate him, as he's fairly weak at the moment.
Post level 6, try to force a 'Undying Rage' and just snowball from farm there on.
Rengar is easy.
Just don't let him get the farm advantage, or he will start to beat you up with his items that you don't have.
Just try to farm, harass and just stay out of his way until your jungler ganks.
Get the advantage, and your lane is super easy.
Poor little fella will just get dominated, if he harass' well, then you just need to absorb them with your
and you'll beat him due to your combo's.
Just stomp him, and you'll be fine.
She is quite annoying to lane against.
She can gapclose, or run away, she can parry your attacks, and return the damage to you. And worst of all, she gains a massive AD steroid from one of her abilities.
She can also negate any damage that your 'Wind Slash' will do, due to her ult making her untargetable.
Annoying lane, just try to farm and play passive.
He is just fairly strong to play against.
At the first few levels, you can just beat him easily. But once he gets a few points in his abilities and is able to transform, the trades can go either way.
(I think this lane is purely skill based)
He has lot's of sustain, a gap closer (or escape), stealth, and a nuke from his Q (if you're isolated)
He is fairly annoying, but you CAN beat him fairly easy. He is just strong once he is itemised, just try to farm and wait for his mistakes.
Super annoying guy, like a really potent slow, a wave clear and a sustain passive.
So he can harass you fairly well, just try to farm and negate him.
Just him as soon as you can, try to get the advantage due to a gank too.
Do NOT let him get free farm, even if it means sacrificing some of your own.
If he gets farmed, he can gets items. And the item proc such as Tri Force, and his Q will do a LOT of damage.
Just absorb his Q with your
and you will be able to harass him well.
Malphite is the AD counter, very hard lane.
Although, you can win if you harass him REALLY well, try to absorb as much damage as you can.
Pre-level 6, he can farm well and harass you. But he burns mana super crazy fast, so look for that.
Rumble is annoying, simply because of his 'Flamespitter'.
He can farm well, and annoy you. That's his job.
When fighting him, make sure to use your
to absorb his Q.
Don't get caught in his ult, and you'll be able to dominate.
Vi is annoying.
Has a wave clear, can hurt you bad and has a nice gap closer that is sort of unreliable.
This lane isn't extremely hard, but you have to pick out her mistakes and make her pay.
Her ult is devastating, try not to waste your ult.
Just something about Volibear.. he is annoying.
He will bite you, and it hurts. Try not to push to the tower, or even harass him at his tower. He will just flip you and get a lot of damage out on you.
He's annoying, just ignite him if he tries to heal with hia passive.
Just don't get hit by Q.
That's all, if he misses his Q, you'll beat him in trades.
If he maxes his shield, you try to break it, then he'll break yours.
Even lane, just try to get his mistakes and turn them on him.
Irelia is hard.
Her true damage cannot be negated by your
She will just farm, and will beat you in trades.
The fact that she can build tanky and just do more damage, is a lot more difficult for Riven.
Just TRY to beat her. This is PURELY skilled and stat based matchup.
Try to find her mistakes and punish her, just like most matchups.
Jax is annoying.
A gapcloser, stun, lot's of damage and tankiness.
Don't fight him, unless you have a severe advantage.
Does true damage, lot's of sustain, tankiness and a CC blockable ult.
You won't do much, and your stuns won't work.
You can't block his true damage. Just try to farm up, and wait for a gank.
He is the hardest matchup.
Cho'Gath is also pretty hard.
If you don't know how to play against a Cho of course.
Don't get hit by his ruptures, just absorb his W with
and wait until he pushes to your tower.
His ult does true damage, which is of course another thing that Riven cannot beat.
