Meh.Pre-6 he's not really anything to call home about, and you can dodge his bandage toss with your Q.
Your ultimate also can negate his ult's stun if you time it right!
If you counterjungle, catch him doing a buff with W + Ignite + E and goodnight Amumu. Go cry back at your Nexus.
Easy. She has no escapes and her ult doesn't stun for very long close range. Build DAMAGE and enjoy 1-shotting.
Annoying. Throw a Box down at 0:40 in a bush and hope he trips it if he comes to fuck with you. Ask your team for help protecting.
Her CC is easy to dodge, but your Q might not always be enough to get away from her if need be. You'll need to out play her. 1v1 she hurts, try and get her to miss her stun and maybe her spiderling too before you commit.
NEVER all-in her without your ult.
Unless you're both below level 6, then make sure she trips a box and eats a fear and some box damage before/during your fight. All-in-all, try to avoid drawn out skirmishes with her. Gank and countergank.
FEAR VS FEAR. His wins BUT you have ignite, and your fear could disrupt his Drain.
His jungle isn't fast and you shouldn't worry too much about him coming into your territory.
If you do counterjungle him and you see him, chances are he'll be using his Drain on a creep so it will be on CD. Easy money, break a few sticks and get a few bucks.
Have not seen a jungle GP in a long time, but here's the matchup in case you encounter it.
GP's Q's do a lot of damage in lane. Jungle GP will not have the time to poke you down like GP top would. 1v1 you own him. Just don't sit in his ult.
If he runs don't chase unless he's low and you can get a kill. THAT'S when he'd have the opportunity to kite you with Q.
Example of being a good pick-up. Slow him after he cleanses your E or vice verse. Plus a lot of GP's will not just build straight damage anymore. BoRK does more damage based on HP!
Not always Hard, but his skills DO counter you. You can DEFINITELY out play Lee Sin all game. "Hard" does not mean he wins, and does not mean you should be afraid. Lee Sin is listed as "Hard" because of his nature of countering stealthed units.
Clowning the Early Game Back to Top
Your role is to apply pressure. More pressure than any champion possibly could.
You have a few ways of doing this, but I'll focus on a few.
Keep in mind there are MANY ways to adapt to a game of League of Legends, so to simply write-out a formula would be impossible.
We'll just look at ideal situations you can keep in mind during your gameplay to help you improve.
You NEED to get kills, blow summoners, instil fear etc..
Early game, you need to get your teammates ahead (and yourself). One of the ways of doing this is by ganking.
A simple lane gank or river gank can lead to a kill or a blown summoner which will help your team out tremendously.
KEEP THIS IN MIND:
When you use your Q to gank, you will be stuck without it for quite some time; be careful not to die.
Pick a lane that offers you some CC, is easily gankable, or someone who snowballs hard; and just continuously gank it.
To the point where you even become bored of getting kills.
Wait for them to type in All-Chat, then gank them about 5-6 more times.
You will not be helping your entire team out, but you will ensure one lane is completely dominated.
You & that lane will snowball hard and carry.
It is easiest to camp top lane, but if you can get mid or bot ahead, that is definitely priority.
NOTE: Look for their weak link.
If you see their top, mid or bottom lane is TERRIBLE, exploit them.
If the enemy bottom lane is playing stupidly aggressive, or top lane just never wards; THAT MEANS YOU CAMP. You make them go 0-11 because that is what they deserve.
Clowning the Mid Game Back to Top
Okay so laning phases are coming to an end. You hopefully have taken down an enemy turret or two and either one or both teams are starting to group. This is where A LOT of games are decided.
So let's break a couple things down.
MID GAME WITH A GOOD EARLY START.
MID GAME WITH A BAD EARLY START.
If you want to be a GOOD and reach high ELO game play, you will need to know how to rebound from this. It's all a learning experience but here are a few things you can do.
SPLIT PUSH. This is how a lot of hopeless games can be won. Yeah, you offer almost nothing to your team if they are getting destroyed. But sometimes trading towers is all you can do. There will also be games where your team is able to hold off and wave clear 4v5 and you will get a tower or two for free. In the very rare occasion (mostly in lower ELO) you will manage to get a free inhib.
Clowning the End Game Back to Top
This is where A LOT of mistakes happen. Sadly, one mistake can lose the game for you.
It works both ways, as one pick can also win the game.
There is a lot of assessment that needs to take place when playing late game with no matter what division/league/ELO.
Let's look at a few key features to closing games out.
What is your job as in the late game?
ONE-SHOT A HIGH PRIORITY TARGET.
Drop everything that God gave you onto that sumabitch and kill his ass.
ULT if you need to.
TAKING TOWERS & INHIBS.
About Me Back to Top
Hello! Thank you for checking out my guide.
I have been clowning since Season 1!
I have thousands of games of experience with over the years, over the span of many accounts.
During the first 2-3 seasons I've done numerous Unranked - Platinum runs playing only Shaco.
After a bit of dedication, I was able to finally break through and hit Diamond consistently.
I stopped playing for 2 Seasons but now I'm back and planning on getting back to the skill level I once was.
I hope to share my knowledge on how to win games with and I will do my best to constantly add content and update weekly!
If you have ANY questions or comments, feel free to leave them here; or add me in-game.
SUMMONER NAME: Jokerit
I've streamed before, and plan on streaming here-and-there but definitely not full-time in any sense of the word.
I simply enjoy playing the game and broadcasting doesn't interest me; but you can always follow me if ever you're interested in watching me play!
Ganking Back to Top
VIDEOS COMING SOON!
Your Role as DAMAGE Back to Top
Your role as DAMAGE is to kill. Kill, Kill, Kill.
Sometimes you die. Okay that's a lie, a lot of times you die.
99% of the time you're going to use your Q to dive their back-line.
THIS IS WORTH.
If their ADC is 14-0, the game is NOT over. You can honestly delete their ADC in 1 combo.
If you take out a 14-0 ADC, and instantly die, you're doing a service for your team.
You're removing a carry from the fight, and absorbing a few damaging spells for your team.
Sometimes the entire game depends on your being able to do you job, and you definitely don't want your combo to not kill someone simply because you forgot to walk behind them while invisible.
Always make it a habit, whether you're jungling, ganking, dueling or team fighting.
PLACING A BOX.
Even maxed-out it's only 1.5, but that could be game changing.
USING YOUR ULT.
Your Role as TANK Back to Top
Your role as TANK is to be fk'ing ANNOYING. Yes, I said it.
Be a fk'ing clown. Troll the other team. Eat abilities, /l in their faces, throw a Jack-in-the-box on the floor and /d around.
Real talk though, TANK is annoying not only because his damage is still decently high, but because he is REALLY hard to kill.
I'm talking 3k + HP, with damage, a shield, your ult and decent MR/Armor.
Your role is to disrupt the other team, soak damage, peel if need-be.
DOMINATING THE EARLY GAME.
What you can do is help your ADC kill whoever is sticking to them, or trust your team and stick on the enemy carry(ies)
TEAM FIGHTING WHILE AHEAD.
TEAM FIGHTING WHILE BEHIND.
That being said, the game is never over. You can ALWAYS out-play the other team. The whole basis of playing in any role is to win the game by out-playing. Wait for opportunities, ward and catch the enemies out of position. And remember; If you choose to play TANK then you need to soak up damage. You need to initiate, and soak up damage with yourself and your ult. This is only frustrating because you need to rely on your team.
