Champion Matchups

Introduction

Fizz is a pretty funny and a high burst champion. You often see him mid but people underestimate his power at the top lane. He got great escapes with his slows and his mobility. He has a good snowball potential. If the enemy team can´t shut him down early he becomes a monster in mid and late game. He also has 2 slow abilities what makes him hard to catch and able shut down high priority targets. But the best thing is that it´s so much fun to play fizz on any lane (you can also go jungle).
Fizz falls off in late game and against a heavy cc team with chain cc combos. This is the reason why positioning and right timing is one of the key factors when playing as Fizz.



Some informations about me: i´m 20 years old and i´m from germnay. so you will notice that my english isn´t that good but i hope you can still read it.
My summoner name is xCyn and i have a smurf Worst Fizz EU xD. i play on the eu west server so feel free to add me there :)

[http://666kb.com/i/ccpyaovbneuiidpz3.jpg]

here is also a livestream link from me
http://www.twitch.tv/onlyfizz
and my facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/xcyn.onlyfizz
i gonna make some highlight videos now here is the first one:

Masteries

Full offensive masteries

Getting 30/0/0 are the best masteries right now because they match perfect with the hybrid runes and fizz heavy damage. i haven´t played with other masteries for a long time now and i think it´s not needed as well as long as they don´t change fizz.


[http://666kb.com/i/cf87g7ndsct3ft8qo.jpg]


Top Masteries (defensive)

[http://666kb.com/i/cc89g1dgj6r7kqt9y.jpg]




Mid Masteries (defensive)

i put one point in summoners resolve because i like to play with ignite and barrier in mid lane and this gives you extra shield points.

[http://666kb.com/i/cc89thvlrgufylqd2.jpg]




*update* so after i played more and more games i notcied how good hybrid runes and masteries work on fizz. so i decided to go 30/0/0 masteries as well now. the recall time and mana reg on utility isn´t that effective as full armor pen on offensive. don´t run thoose masteries if you have to play against a hard counterpick like casio or darius.

Runes

[http://666kb.com/i/cfq1lhi2ba4c261k6.jpg]


TOP against AD: This are my standart ap top runes. I used to have more armor into them on season 2 but most top champs will get black cleaver and will run a lot of armor pen. so i feel like you need to get more burst damage runes and no deffensive runes to be able to trade with them. But feel free to try out armor instead of flat ap with fizz top. you will see you can´t trade that good with them. i would only prefer them against champs you loose really hard like darius where you just need to farm up til mid or late game.


[http://666kb.com/i/cfq1l18uz412wygdi.jpg]



Top against CASTER: So i run mana regen to play against caster top laner like vladimir or kennen. this is pretty simple. you need to haras them early and you may noticed that his e spell takes a lot of mana. you can also get more magic res instead of your ap. but i think to get more damage then defensive on fizz is just better! especially through the buffs on ap and the nurfs on magic res.

Skills

[http://666kb.com/i/cf87caz57bey8rgjk.jpg]

this skill order is against most range casters where you are able to catch up to the enemy while he tries to harasse you. for example ryze tries to Q you lvl 1, you just dodge it and are able to auto attack him once or twice because he has to get close enough to you to cast his spell.
also viable if you play top against a early CC champ and against a jungler like j4 because they could gank you easy at level 2 if you start with cloth armor and W first.


Passive: Nimble Fighter

Explanation:

The only reason why fizz top is available. You reduce physical damage from every auto attack or minion. this helps you a lot in 2 different ways. first you take less damage from any ad champion and second you get less damage from minions. so if you want to trade against someone you get minion aggro and this really hurt a lot of champions but with fizz you take minimum damage then.


Q: Urchin Strike

Explanation:

This is fizz distance closer. you need this to get in your autoattack damage range. but it can be used as a escape skill as well like poppy´s e spell. in late game your Q deals a lot of damage together with your W spell. If you are really fed you can one shoot the enemy carry. Never underestimate the damage of this spell it seems pretty little but actually it´s really huge especially after getting your lich bane.

W: Seastone Trident

Explanation:

This is the auto attack boost skill for fizz. the passive allows you to farm easier and the active allows you to reduce heal and deal a bit extra damage with your attacks. always try to active this skill before you use your Q.

E: Playfull

Fizz bread and butter skill. This skill can be used on a lot of different ways. it is your farm tool it has a pretty huge aoe and deals enough damage to kill range creeps later on. but don´t use it to farm while your enemy is in the lane or you don´t know the position of the jungler, mid etc. because it´s a huge escape tool. You can jump over a lot of walls and you can dodge like any spell if you time it correct. you can use it to close the distance to the enemy as well or to jump in and slow them but always keep in mind that you are really squishy and your E is your only way to survive in teamfights, escapes etc..

R: Chum the Waters

Explanation:

Chum the waters is fizz ultimate and his big cc/damage spell. it has a bit aoe, slows the enemys and also throws them back + deals damage if they stay near it. But it´s also a skillshot with a medium range. try to use it from sides where the enemy don´t see you. it feels a bit like anivia´s Q spell and can surprise them. you can also use it as an escape tool because it has a slow and a knock up this helps you to get away pretty easy. don´t waste it in teamfights and try to time it with other aoe ultis like leona´s R or oriana´s R.

Item Builds

Optional item:

Doran's ring provides you with early game survivability. However, it'll delay your lich bane rush. buying 2 is usually standard with other caster but since season 3 i think only getting one is better because lich bane is pretty cheap and sheen helps you a lot in the lane phase.

Core item:

this is your first item every game. it depend on your matchup and your early game but you want to buy only 2-3 other items before getting this. if the enemy champion plays as a tanky bruiser get really early and one one doran´s ring.
you have to get lich bane when you max up your Q spell. Optional would be a lich bane under then 15 minute mark and with like level 10-13.

Essential:

zhonyas is a really strong item and is really importand on fizz too. as i said you are really weak and squisy when you used your E spell and this item helps you a lot to get the cd down. it makes it really hard to kill fizz and especially bebauce you get a lot of armor against Ad champions.

Essential:

rabadons makes fizz to a real beast. if you are really far ahead try to get it as the third big item. this makes you deal so much damage and makes it unneeded to get void staff against tanky enemys. your damage output with lich bane, zhonyas and rabbadons is high enough and gets down every tank in the game.

Strong:

fizz is so hard to kill late game and this item will make it even harder. you can escape and juke so hard and can play really aggresive.

If the enemy team has a lot of cc you can also get
If you play against a ryze get before you get deathcap because otherwise he will burst you down with one combo no metter how far ahead you are. it also works against other high burst casters and this helps you survive especially when you have someone with bollwerk in your team as well.

Always remeber to upgrade your boots to homeguard. this is super effective with your teleport summoner spell and allow you to make some funny moves.

Summoner Spells

AND
Explanation:

You really need ignite with fizz. but the second summoner spell is free to you. i would prefer:


or


i really like to farm top and rush lich bane so i thing teleport is a good tool to help out your bot or midlane and also you can escape really nice with teleport on fizz. i also use flash really often to close the distance to the enenmy or to be able to escape from early ganks. but same here as for runes, feel free to try out different summoners :). but if you play mid i prefer barrier as i allready said earlier.

Things you have to care off

1: Silence.
2: Skarner Pull
3: Chain CC

As fizz you like to engage on the high priority target. but you need your E spell to get him down or to get close enough for your Q,R combo. so it happens that you find yourself in the center of the enemy team and you get silenced from soraka or get pulled from skarner. take care of your steps you are really squishy and get bursted down fast when you can´t use your E or zhonyas to escape.
If the enemy team has a good and strong frontline try to kill them first with the backup of your team. because often you try to get to their ad or ap carry but then you just die by their cc.
It´s important to go in at the right time on the right person.

Matchup´s


Matchup: Medium (7)
1. try to kill early or just farm
2. start with W first


So Wukong is nearly like fizz and it´s all about the early trade. if you deal more damage then him try to shut him down early as possible because his late game is stronger then fizz´s. when he reaches 6 keep your q or r up to escape from his ultimate.


Matchup: Medium (7)
1. Buy pink wards
2. Win early game
3. Care of burst
4. Rush sheen early game

Akali is a pretty anoying matchup. you depend on the jungler ganks and the early game. this is one of the hardest snowball lanes. if akali gets a lead you have a hard time to come back.


Matchup: Easy (3)
1. Harasse
2. Denie him away from creeps
3. shut him down early

Cho is really weak against fizz. You can dodge his q and w spell pretty easy and harasse him really hard. But never let him farm because his ulti really hurts you late game. also keep in mind that you need your abilitys to harasse him and this makes you an open target for the enemy jungler.


Matchup: Difficult (9)
1. Farm early game
2. Dodge his E and Ult

Darius is a counterpick to fizz. he can kill you easy because you don´t want to build hp as fizz. you can maybe try out Ad fizz against him or just farm early game or ask for really hard help of your jungler.


Matchup: Easy/Medium (4)
1. play aggresive

Try to play aggresive against irelia. you can trade with her at level 2-5 and want to shut her down early. Q,W her and then use your e to slow her down so she can´t follow you.
it´s really important too slow her while she got her w active to be able to trade with her damage because you are still really squishy to her. when you slow her at the right moment she can´t follow up with enough auto attacks and you just outdamage her.


Matchup: Easy/Medium (4)
1. play aggresive
2. dodge his stun
3. denie his farm

Fizz is stronger at level 2-6. your slow really shuts him down and your w damage can trade with his auto attacks pretty well. Try to get him as low as possible into mid game. his level 7-10 is pretty strong and without your lich bane it´s really hard to trade with him. don´t let him get ahead by playing to defensive early.


Matchup: Difficult (9)
1. farm
2. care for his burst
3. ask for ganks

Jayce counters fizz. you can´t trade with him the whole game. try to keep your farm up as good as possible or shut him down by camping top from your jungler. you can dodge a lot of spells and your slow is your only key against him. try to help your team out with roaming or teleport ganks bot.


Matchup: medium (6)
1. stand behind creeps
2. harasse him while 1.
3: dodge his q with your E

Try to farm against lee in early levels and deal a bit damage with your auto attacks. it´s really hard to catchup with him and he got a good sustain while dealing good damage. Dodging his q is really importand to prevent any damage from him.
this matchup really depends on dodging his skillshots and making some good plays.



Matchup: difficult (8)
1. ask for ganks
2: dodge his ult

Malphite is also really good against fizz. his shield is pretty annoying and because your a melee champ his e spell attack debuff really hurt you. but he only has 3 damage spells and 2 of them early. so if he used them or you dodged them try to play really aggresive and shut him down early.
if he build a lot of hp just farm and look for good teleport or roaming ganks.


Matchup: difficult (10)
1. farm
2. dodge his q

Olaf is the biggest fizz counter. his e hurts you so much and you have no sustain against him. his ult also remove your slows. try to build more tanky with fizz or shut him down really early in the lane. but this is really hard and if he knows his champ really good you have a hard time. try to play this as smart as possible.


Matchup: medium (5)
1. kill her early
2. dodge her W/R
3. get ahead

You want to play really aggresive against riven. with your early pots you can trade with her pretty good and your slow really hurts her. shut her down early and ask for ganks.


Matchup: easy (3)

1. play aggresive 2-6
2. denie his farm
3. dodge his taunt

play aggresive against shen and show him how strong you are. he will play really defensive and you can bully him for every mistake he makes. your damage output with the hybrid runes get through his defense.


Matchup: easy/medium (4)
1. dodge his blind

shut teemo down together with your jungler. teemo top is really anoying and you have to kill him 2 or 3 times before he gets level 6. try to dodge his Q and then rush in on him.


Matchup: easy (2)
1. use your W everytim it´s up
2. don´t let him farm
3. play aggresive

vladimir is really weak early game. keep in mind that you are good at level 2-5 and your w deals damage through his pool. always Q,W him and get sheen as fast as possible. you can zone him pretty hard. wait to hit your ult on him after he uses his spells.


Matchup: easy (2)
1. make trades
2. farm

don´t be afraid of vi. you deal more damage then she does and you can dodge a lot of her spells.


Matchup: easy (2)
1. play aggresive level 2 and 3
2. zone him
3. destroy his farm fest

some lists say that mordekaiser is a counterpick to fizz. but this is not the case. you can zone him really hard early game. jump on him everytime he tries to get to your minions.
your W spell have to be active when he ults you.
after you zoned him you just have to hit your shark and then burst him down really quick.
you can repeat this really often and also call for your jungler to countergank the enemys jungler. because in most cases they call for the jungler to gank your lane after you are far ahead enough.


Matchup: medium (5)
1. counterharasse
2. dodge her ult with E

fiora´s main damage output is her ultimate. you can actually stop it buy using your E spell while she hit on you. this is insane and can also be used later in teamfights.
just play well against her in lane. if you can´t kill her just farm until late game and don´t give her kills.


Matchup: easy/medium (4)
1. harasse her
2. dodge nid´s spears
3. use E while her cugar form

try to get ahead early game. trade with her at level 2 or 3 and ask for ganks. the only way she can survive your damage is to build hp and guardian early, just farm then. when she goes hybrid or full ap trade with her and get a kill to snowball really hard.


Matchup: medium (7)
1. dodge his W
2. win early
3. armor runes

talon is really weak in early levels and fizz is really good in early levels so use this as an adventage. get some armor early and dodge his w spells without your E.


Matchup: medium (5)
1. use E when he runs up to you

garen has a good damage output and a great sustain in lane. just wait for him to run at you with his q and then use your playfull to slow him while he wants to use his e spell. you can dodge a lot of his damage by doing this and trade with him pretty good.


Matchup: easy (2)
1. harasse early
2. care for her stun

play aggresive on an open field is the key against poppy. start with your W or Q spell and play really aggresive after you used your ward really early. your damage output is a lot higher then hers so denie her farm as much as possible.




Matchup: easy/medium (4)

Ahri´s only advantage is her mobility and her range. Try to push to her turret to make her unable to roam.


Matchup: easy (2)

Depending on the enemy player the skill matchup gives fizz a big advantage about anvia. you can dodge her full damage output with 1 e spell and this makes it hard for her to play against you. However fizz falls back in late game so try to shut her down early.


Matchup: medium (6)

It´s hard to lane against Brand because his E spell makes him able to harasse you. try to bait out his Q spell and then go in.


Matchup: hard (9)

Casiopeia is a counterpick to fizz. she is able to burst you down fast and it´s hard to dodge her skills. she also builds to a tanky caster which makes it even harder for you.


Matchup: medium/hard (7)

Try to bait and dodge her spells then go in with your q first. keep her busy mid because you don´t want her to roam. play more aggresive early and try to farm and roam mid/late game.


Matchup: medium (6)

Snowball lane. don´t fall behind against her. get mobility boots and try to roam in mid game.


Matchup: medium (5)

farm up against galio and then roam around the map. i prefer teleport against galio.


Matchup: medium (5)

harasse him early with your W Q. you have to force him back because his sustain is good.



Matchup: easy (1)

heimerdinger normaly gets his E spell at level 9 and this makes him an easy target for you. try to play aggresive since level 1.


Matchup: medium (6)

op


Matchup: easy/medium (4)

try to zone karthus while dodging his Q. mid game you want to shoove the lane and then roam.


matchup: medium (5)

easy to play against if you get ahead early. just use your W Q combo all the time without your E spell.


Matchup: easy (3)

kayle has no chance against fizz pre 6. try to bait his Q out then dodge it with your E and hunt him down.


matchup: medium (6)

fuck this champion


matchup: easy (3)

dodge her Q


matchup: medium (5)

snowball lane. try to farm and roam later on with boots of mobility and lich bane movement.


matchup: medium (5)

So a lot of people think that ryze is a hard counterpick to fizz. thats actually not the case. your damage output is a lot higher with level 2 and you can shut him down early. but always keep in mind that ryze is one of the only champions who have a really strong late game.


matchup: hard (9)

Swain is a hard matchup for Fizz. there aren´t a lot of good swain player but if swain uses his range and spells good you have no chance with fizz. qq


matchup: medium (6)

only champ where you need mercs. i prefer cleanse against veigar as well.


matchup: easy / medium (4)

keep him busy mid and push out his lane. care for his E spell it´s his only way to kill you.


matchup: easy / medium (4)

ziggs has no stunes just a hard range poke. so try to kill him after he pushes your lane.


(ap mid)
matchup: easy (3)

Pre 6 you have to push her to the turret. you also deal a way more damage then she does espicially after she used her spear. try to stay away from her auto attack range until you have your q spell.






Explanation: Number 1-10
1-3: easy
4: easy/medium
5-7: medium
8-10: difficult

Early Game

So what you trying to do with fizz is to get level 3 as fast as possible without loosing to much cs. as far you get level 3 you can trade with nearly everyone in the top lane. people underestimate his early damage and your slow on your E is really helpfull to get him down with your auto attacks while your W is active.

if you play against a really easy enemy try to bully him allready with level 2 for any mistake he makes. but you have to show him that you can trade with him so he plays more defensive and you can farm better for your lichbane rush. if he stacks magic res. try to buy
even bofore your because it´s really about the trades and farming with fizz. if you get denied really hard by the enemy jungler try to call for some help top.

normaly you counter champs like

or

but only if you get ahead early. your heal reduce is the key here to be able to outtrade them. also you have to start with a lot of pots early. if they buy boots and 3 pots you automaticly won the lane allready but this is also the other way around. always try to dodge their e spells with your e spell. then they are weak and you can w q them with your slow on them and put some serious damage on them.
so when you know you are better then the enemy just bully them for any mistake and try to get lich bane and farm early game.

Mid Game

Mid game is the key point of fizz. now you have your lich bane and you can trade with anyone. when you are far ahead you are able to 1 vs 2 the enemys now. and as i said your second key item is zhonyas.
the armor really helps you out a lot on the top lane and fizz passive is so good against bruisers.
feel free to roam to the drake or mid/bot lane as well.
you have your teleport up and you can easy gank any lane. your slow is too much for them but you need to time your ult at the right time. if they panic flash too early bully them!
when you play fizz mid try to roam as much as possible with fizz. i like to get boots of mobility and homeguard upgrade as well as lich bane of course. your movement and roam potential is insane.

Late Game

Fizz late game depends on his early and mid game. if you are ahead you can 1 vs 3 the enemys pretty easy.. your ult is the key for the late game. you can throw your ult into 5 of them and follow it up with E and instandly press your zhonyas.
this is so much fun and it deals a lot of damage when your team helps you out with some aoe from like leona or oriana.
but only do this if you are really far ahead or known with your teammates. otherwise try to use your ult on the highest priority target and always keep your zhonyas up to the moment you really need it.
try to make the plays with fizz. if you catch one of them offguard just kill him with your combo.
but always keep in mind that a save fizz is better then a death fizz don´t get too greedy or too deep in.

Team Fights

Fizz really shines in teamfights. As i said try to make big plays with fizz.
If you have a really good team comp like oriana mid and mf/leona bot you have such a good aoe combo. when you have oriana´s ball on you go into all of them and press your R and zhonyas after.
there a lot of posibilty for a real good combo with fizz in your team. but always time your e correct. you are a melee champion and your only escape is your playfull.
sometimes you feel carefree and try to make big plays but you fail. always keep in mind that you are pretty squishy and you need your E to escape. always try to get the highest priority target. your W is so good against ad carry´s late game who need to lifesteal a lot to survive.
always try to burst them down if your team have no good aoe combo. timing is the key for fizz always keep that in mind because everything is better then a death fish!

Some tips for fizz mid

this was basicly a fizz top guide so here are some informations for fizz mid now:
most of the time you play against range ap casters mid. so there are 3 possibilitys to get through them: 1. you use your q to close the distance while dealing damage

2. you use your e to close the distance while dealing damage and maybe slow them as well

3. you use your r to slow them while moving forwards to get into range

if you use your q always activate your w as well and at least get one hit on them to deal a good chunk of damage. using your q is the savest way to get close to them because the cd is pretty low especially in mid and late game and also you have your e spell and maybe your ult up to make other moves.

if you use your e you are always in kind of danger especially when you have no ult. if the enemy baits you so you engage on him to deal damage and the enemy jungler apears you have to fight or to flash out. fizz is pretty squishy and needs at least his ultimate to escape from ganks after you used your e.
a tip for early level: if you engage with your e and you get ganked try to escape with your q spell on minions and don´t use it to deal more damage on the enemy champ only if you know where the enemy jungler is you can go in with all your cd´s

if you use your r to slow them and to engage make sure you will get atleast his flash out. the only problem is that it´s a skillshot and you have to connect it on the enemy. at level 6 or 7 you have enough damage to kill anyone with your full combo when he has 1/2 of his health. only start with your ult if the enemy stays to far back for you other spells. otherwise jump on them with q then use r and then e + ignite. the slow makes it nearly imposible to escape.


good players will never let themself free harasse by you and they will just farm save. always keep the presure up so they may make some mistakes. but its really hard to catch someone like lux when they make full use of their range advantage.
the thing is most people don´t know the high damage output of fizz and they won´t expect to die so fast. if this is the case it´s easy to bait them to the death especially with your barrier up.

i like to rush sheen first before getting any other items. but only when you are ahead. when you´re even i would prefer one or two dorans rings.

also try to roam as much as possible with fizz mid. his e is damn good to get through their wards if you know excetly where they are. only problem there is that it has a high mana coast so you are only able to roam if you have your blue buff. i really like to get boots of mobility and homeguard after lich bane. this makes you so good at ganking and controlling the map.

and last but not least you have to play more carefull if you are fizz mid. because there are a lot more ways to gank you.

A few tips and tricks

so you may actually noticed that fizz has a lot of champions who are ok against him top and some really hard counters as well. but the thing is: they won´t expect fizz top. use this as an andventage and counterpick them by this little mind game. if you are 5 man premade this works so well and you allready get a little bit ahead in the picks.

also fizz is one of the biggest snowball champs in the game! when you get ahead early you can destroy the whole enemy team and it´s really hard to deal with you.
always keep in mind to play as aggresive as possible. i see most people playing fizz like to defensive and just farm the whole early game. if you apear to be weak they won´t fear you and they feel comfortable against you so they´ll try to zone you and you have to answer this with trades and kills on them. and don´t even think about getting a other first item then lich bane. it´s so cheap on season 3 and skills so well with fizz and his spells.

try to play with theird minds if they counterpick you with ryze or mordekaiser. most people see: ryze/mordekaiser counters fizz so they play aggresive as hell. but actually you beat them pretty hard early game. people won´t expect that and if you get one kill ahead you can snowball pretty good.

Also keep in mind that homeguard into teleport is overpowered right now and can be used really effective.
Try to shut down the highest priority target. If you can´t trade with on your lane just push it out hard and teleport back everytime. then try to get a good spot where you can teleport.

ALWAYS KEEP IN MIND: ROAM ROAM ROAM ROAM ROAM :)

Some last words

so yea that was my fizz guide. i hope you enjoyed it. my english is unfortunable not as good but i tried my best. i will edid this guide from time to time and i maybe bring out a fizz mid guide as well if you like this one a lot. this is also my first guide so pls tell me what i can improve this would help a lot!

and here also a youtube vid from a feed fizz:


Important information

so i noticed that i talked a lot about playing aggresive with fizz. this will only work on lower elo games. they make more mistakes and it´s a lot easier to snowball with fizz thats also the reason why i get through "elo hell" everytime.
but when you start to play against better player they will just bait you to the death everytime you go in aggresive.
so it´s more about playing well and try to get your items while taking adventage of possible mistakes from them.
only play aggresive when you know you can because you see the enemy plays bad or you are save.


i will try to make a big edit on this guide soon because some things are out of the time allready and the meta also changed a lot

Why don't you build Deathfire's grasp as your first item on Fizz? It is the same price as Lichbane and offers 25-30% more damage when completed. It's not like Fizz is going to be poking towers with lichbane very much at level 10.

I can't believe TSM didn't build MR against NukeDuck on Fizz, and this is the best place to voice my disappointment.

Hey, i tried to add your smurf worst fizz eu xD , but it said "could not find user" etc... i sent a request to xCyn. (my ign is jozeft). Im a mid player whos unranked at the moment and i am looking to improve my game and stop worrying about the mistakes others make and focus on my own mistakes. I play mainly play kass, orianna and annie and would love to be able to play fizz well, so any tips would be appreciated (providing you accepted my request) ;)

How is swain a hard matchup? I jut lose so horribly against a Fizz every single time. This is what happens every single time I try so much as even taking a cs that is not really, really far away from me, or try to harass Fizz:



I do aa on minion, or E autoattack Fizz or whatever... he Q's on to me, and starts autoattacking. If I use Nevermove, he will trollpole out of it and I am pretty much either dead or have to bluepill. If I try to use my slow so I can walk away, I will lose the trade horribly and then he will just gib me next time his combo is up. After 6 it just gets even worse, since every landed shark is just a kill in 1,5 seconds.



This sounds QQ'y, prolly because I got gibbed by lvl 6 Fizz with two Doran's from full health, but yea... please help me, because for me this retard fish is just permanently banned atm and I would like to learn how you can beat him. A lot of the times he is also able to all-in for an easy first blood, like my last game, he was lvl 4 with doran's ring and I had fairie charm (fizz doesnt have to ward because of the retarded skillset I guess), and he just Q'd me, and kept atacking until I had to try for the nevermove, which he naturally trollpoled and actually the trollpole just killed me. This is no exaggeration, Q, few AA's and trollpole killed me from full health, and I even had magic resist glyphs and armor runes. Is there some kind of a cheese strat I didn't realize, or is this just really something Fizz can normally and effortlessly do? Because let me tell you,. after that firstblood out of nowhere, he instantly gibbed every time I tried to go for a single lasthit.

Regarding pantheon, if you initiate with e, do a regular aa to get the shield down, then qw, you generally out trade him by quite a bit. The trick is not q'ing him when the shields up.

Do you still use hybrid pen with lichbane dealing magic dmg now?

June 11, 2013 - 03:46 PM #9

hey, wann streamst du nochmal :) hab angefangen fizz zu spielen und fand deinen guide sehr hilfreich. magst du mir vllt nochn paar tipps geben? sitze in gold fünf fest und versuche verzweifelt daraus zu kommen, fizz scheint der richtige hero dafür zu sein :P

June 10, 2013 - 09:37 AM #10

well i played against pantheon a lot..

i think the only way to beat him is to make early trades even if you loose them. just trade with him without dying and wait for mid game. you can beat him mid game with lvl 11+
