Akali, if not played properly, will snowball against you hard. Do not let her send you back early and farm delicately. You will not be able to compete until level 6, at which you will wreck havoc. I start
. Farm easy, don't let her send you back early and you will win at the end.
Same as above.
He will do nothing but farm, you will not lose, but he will free farm as much as you. Do not let him go out of control.
Against GP, you can start
and instead of just last hitting, you will hit more consistently, counting your opponent's hits so that the lane balances. You can outsustain him, after you past his early game.
Aggressive Early Game, his combo incorporates E -> W -> Q -> E. Dodge his first E and he will recede, if he wastes his next E to catch up to you, this is when you turn and fight. You can beat him at 7 if you have your
I would recommend
. Then follow with 2 x
. You need the early health and lifesteal to sustain and outtrade him.
Against Yorick, it is preferred to start
and instead of just last hitting, you will hit more consistently, counting your opponent's hits so that the lane balances. With
, you should be able to ignore him.
The thing with Garen is that he is a heavy early game damager and an ignorable threat middle-late game. To counter his laning phase, starting
is the best option. This will build into a Tabi, and at that point, he will be less of a threat. But until that point, the hard part is CSing to get to him. Normally Garen will not harass until 3 in which you must gather every single CS. Afterwards, try to kite him until his Q runs off so then you can E him when he spins on you. You will win afterwards.
If he is at the same level (Skill wise) as you, you will most likely not beat him 1v1 in lane. The only way is to have a jungler give you an early game so then you can snowball. You cannot beat him, however, given the right situation, you can outlane him. Such that an early level gank will set him to play passive and miss early CS/gold. This will in turn slow down his Philo, giving you a snowballed advantage. Play wisely and don't die, that's the worst you can do.
However, if you do find yourself 1v1ing him, here's the deal. Fight him normally until he Wither's you for the AS/MS Debuff, then Q to an almost dead minion so the CD resets, and then kite until then. His wither is the reason you cannot fight him 1 on 1. But since it is on a high CD and high mana cost, you can kite him with your massive utility.
The problem with Lanedyr is his Tiger harass. Because it deals Magic damage, I get a
against him. It sounds silly, but it will significantly reduce the damage. Also, the mana regen counterpart will help because, to cs early against him, you will need to manipulate the minions with your Q. With his nerfs, he is much easier to be dealt with. Just don't trade damage early. I recommend getting a
Lanewick is only a threat because of several things. His sustain comes from his Q and passive. If he spams his Q, he must start Doran's. If he is to use his passive, he must spam hits just like Irelia does. This balances the lane. If he does start Doran's, you will get harassed the first 3 levels, but then win afterwards as he can only Q so often. I recommend
(Not both) as you just need the early MR to play against him. You can regen more than his Q cooldown.
Talon is an issue in some cases. To be certain, the best course of action is to run Armor Seals +
. He can't burst you from 100 to 0, so dodge his W harass. If he does combo you to harass, turn around and fight him. No need to run then.
Nidalee will have heavy harass early game due to her range, but it shouldn't be anything you can't handle with
. You should get close if not have
by the time he is level 6-7. After that, his damage will not be ignored, but when he combos you, just stun him and hit back, you will out sustain her. Just do not let her zone you hard early and play conservatively.
Riven's damage comes from her early AD and successive combos. She is a terror early game, but once you get Tabi and a Phage, you can trade damage with her successively. Just know your limits. Always start
to dodge her Q chains. Trade when you have minions. Be aggressive when he doesn't.
With Vladimir's new buffs. He is a pain in the ASS to deal with. Your choices are to go
early and then rush
. This is simply because his early harass is quite annoying, however, he cannot kill you mano e mano. Also, he'll most likely shove his lane, so one gank could set you way ahead. Overall, it's quite a balance lane assuming equal skill level. An early
is nice as well, for the health, and hp5.
Kennen is one of the few champs that cannot lose his lane. Whomever you put him up against, he will not lose. But this doesn't mean he'll win. This is one of those situations. It becomes a farmfest, however, his appearance in team fights is DEVASTATING. Lane-wise you will not lose, but the Kennen runs teleport, his mid game appearance will be tenfold better than yours. Your best plan is to shove top, while warding, and prevent him from roaming.
This is simply a losing lane. Malphite hard counters all melee-induced attackers. It's just recommended not to pick Irelia when Malphite is picked as a top solo. However, if it's been forced, play passively. He can't kill you, but you can't kill him. And he may even deny you early game. Conservation is essential here.
If the other Lee Sin is smart, his first priority will be E. If this is the case, you will not be able to kill each other in lane. If he does play aggressive, if he hits his E, then stun and kite until the debuff is over. After that, you can face him, but like Malphite, you cannot fight him with his E debuff on you. The damage trade will fall in his favor if you do.
should be sufficient.
Tryndamere used to be a hard counter to Irelia due to massive crit bursts vs slow sustain. However, with his recent nerfs, he is much more easier to deal with. Of course, run
, and it should be quite an even lane. You may even kill him if he plays overly aggressive.
Jax is a very one-wayed lane. Against him, I rush
, because you can outlast him in terms of mana. Afterwards, I rush
. Before you get to that point though, to trade, make sure to simply auto attack him without your W up, then when he finally engages, let him E, then WQ onto you. Once the stun wears off, stun him back, activate W, auto him, Q, Auto, and chase him. At that point, he cannot fight you 1 on 1. And in between these trades, be aware that Jax can only trade once his 20s E is off cooldown. So in that time, regenerate and prepare for another. Jax has no natural regeneration, so this lane is simply a matter of outlasting him.
