Summoner Spells Back to Top

4.png12.png Flash is Flash, everybody has it. It's better than Ghost because it is instant and thus, better at gapclosing. Ghost isn't that bad either but if you're going to die 1v1 at level 2 only a Flash will save you from the opponent's Flash.


Other Spells

New Runes Back to Top

AERY SINGED

SUMMON AERY: Aery Singed is currently the flavour of the month. Aery makes your damage formidable at every stage of the game. If you can stick to enemies real close without being kited Aery will easily proc multiple times. Still, take Aftershock if you're vs ranged.

Other choices are bad because you'll have to Poison someone into Sky Autoattack to be able to use Phase Rush (or buy 3076.png so you won't need the auto) and Comet shouldn't even be mentioned.

Tier 1

NULLIFYING ORB: Okay vs a heavy AP champion. Will help your early laning a bit but don't expect too much from it.

Manaflow Band is not needed. Singed doesn't have mana problems at all.

NIMBUS CLOAK: gotta go fast Even scales with your CDR which is nice.

Tier 2

CELERITY: Gives you speed, the others don't.

Tier 3

SCORCH: Helps you net early kills, adds a little bit of burst for late. It's not that good but definitely more noticable than the other two alternatives.

WATERWALKING: Does not even work in a lane. Good if you wanna roam a lot or jungle but it's so much of a niche that it's almost overkill/inting on Singed (even then you don't run through the river while inting).

GATHERING STORM: Scales forever but isn't noticable for a looooooooooooooooooooooooooong while. Becuase you will never determine how long your games go this is not reliable most of the time.


Take Inspiration second so you start the game with 20 AP. 
The other secondary choices can't even match the utilities that Time Warp Tonic and Future's Market bring.

TIME WARP TONIC: Gives you movespeed (approx 18 flat) for being under the effect of anything that has "Potion" in its name, this includes abilities (the only ability in the game that falls under this category is Singed's ult insanitypotion.png) too!
Time Warp Tonic increases the duration of any consumable item you get as well, which means extra healing from potions. insanitypotion.png is not a consumable so this does not apply to it.

FUTURE'S MARKET: This will significantly boost your laning power, especially considering you can buy Dark Seal(s), Corrupting Potion and most importantly tier 1 boots on your first back with this. Also good for late game so you won't have to overextend to get the last 200~ gold for an item (instead you will overextend to get the last 200~ gold so you can utilize this rune with the 200~ it gives but oh well).

MINION DEMATERIALIZER: Optional choice. Singed is too damn good at pushing but if you need more oomph why not take some demats?

Don't even think about Magical Footwear. You need to buy boots asap.



AFTERSHOCK SINGED 
AFTERSHOCK: Very safe choice. Makes you a big tank after you Fling someone (it doesn't proc by any other means). Don't forget that Aftershock deals damage to champions only. You must take this vs ranged toplaners.

The other two choices are just bad because you're not with an ally in lane and you don't auto often, if at all.

Tier 1

DEMOLISH: Singed can shove lanes very hard so with Demolish you can take the first tower gold faster. The problem is that not in every game you're guaranteed to be near a turret yourself to "demolish" it (i.e: proxying). Not to mention there's a far better rune alternative in this tier.

BONE PLATING: aww yiss Everybody's favourite rune in the game. You can never go wrong with FREE FLAT DAMAGE REDUCTION on anything that comes from a champion (it even scales with level)! Bone Plating pretty much rewards you for making dumb mistakes: like going for a bad trade, failing to outrun, getting caught etc.

Font of Life is bad. You can go for Rylai > Ardent, take this rune and support your ADC for the lulz though.

Tier 2

Conditioning is bad compared to what other runes in this tier do. Not to mention Singed needs absolutely everything he can get to pass through early game.

SECOND WIND: Bone Plating's older brother. Unlike it however, Second Wind has NO cooldown ever! 
Bone Plating goes hand in hand with Second Wind because in most games at least one of them, will block/heal for 1000 damage/HP at least.

CHRYSALIS: Snowball option that also helps at early levels. Get 4 takedowns, lose the 50 HP you're given but obtain a Dark Seal's worth of AP, that's a great deal.

Tier 3

Overgrowth is really terrible, it gives you 300 HP at best after 30 minutes. This can't be compared with the healing Revitalize brings, or the Tenacity of Unflinching.

REVITALIZE: Increases your survivability, especially when you're very low on health. In most games this rune will heal and/or shield you for 500 HP on average. It might still be bugged on champions that have Health costs for their abilities, but Singed isn't one of them.

UNFLINCHING: Can grant up to 35% Tenacity and Slow Resistance for 10 seconds (same duration as Ghost). Will definitely help you in teamfights where you flank with TP and/or when you mess up Flash Fling.


Take Inspiration secondary so you get 30-270 HP based on level.

Same choices as listed above.

Get fling.png at level 1 if you are invading and sure that your team will get a kill.



It's really simple. poisontrail.png is the reason you play Singed, max it first.
poisontrail.png alone may not do much if the enemy isn't behind you, max fling.png second for more scaling HP damage and snare duration.
megaadhesive.png is a one point wonder. Ranking it no longer increases the slow amount, just the mana cost and reduces 1 second off of it. You might as well just put one point into it and not rank it again.

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    Best start. Dark Seal(s) makes your Refillable Pot heal more and is sold for 60% of its cost. Refillable Potion may be sold for only 40% of its cost but all the healing you'll receive from it throughtout an entire game will be well worth spending 150 gold for buying it and only losing 15 upon selling it.
    when you need early HP

Core Items

    Always buy tier 1 boots and Corrupting Potion on your first back. If you still have some gold left, fill your inventory with Dark Seal(s).
    Boot choices. Ninja Tabi is good vs auto attack reliant champs, Merc Treads is good vs heavy CC and Swifties are best against Gnar.
    Good tanky item that helps you catch people.
    Rylai will permaslow enemies thanks to Poison Cloud. You'll be able to peel enemies off of your team with this. Very good choice to buy as 1st item when you have Aery. Otherwise it is still a good purchase no matter how late.
    Okay stats for its price. Passive movespeed. But most importantly, a Sky Autoattack that deals 100 extra magic damage and slows the target by 50%. Terrible choice to rush but when you buy this after Shurelia and Rylai not only will you be too fast, but the enemies will be too slow to even do anything.
    Never ever forget wards, especially when proxying. A well placed ward deep into the enemy jungle can last through an entire game (still shouldn't discourage you from buying more). Before you buy a component for your 6th item, fill that spot with as many Control Wards as possible since you won't ever get a chance again.

Situational Items

    You can rush Shurelia instead of RG. It's cheaper and makes you deal more damage but you'll be squishier overall.
    Reflects damage back to attackers, also reduces their attack speed and healing. Giant Armour item that will surely give you the edge vs most ADCs and the likes of Fiora.
    The only crit reduction item in the game. Gives good stats and has an okay active. You can buy multiple Randuins to stack that crit reduction.
    If no AD champ focuses you at all in teamfights, a FH may make them reconsider as that aura will not go down unless you do.
    Good MR item with an exceptional aura. The only downside is that the enemies will most likely be out of the Aura's range in teamfights, especially when they're slowed. But there won't be anything to worry about so long as you stay near enemies.
    Okay MR item but has an amazing passive. That 15% damage reduction applies to ANYTHING and EVERYTHING that's magic damage for 4 seconds and there's no limit on how many different source's damage you can reduce! Definitely buy this versus on-hit builds and mages that spam an ability(s) like Ryze, Syndra, Cass, Singed etc.
    An unfortunate, outclassed MR item. Still good however.
    Cheap item that makes you a mega-tank. Buy this for lategame because it doesn't do much without a few tank items.
    Singed doesn't have the best base HP but he has an ult that gives free resistances so you can build HP for a long while and get away with it. Warmog gives the highest HP of all items and it will surely help vs poke comps.
    Cheap support item that actively helps your entire team. Scales with YOUR BONUS HP so if you somehow buy this along with Warmog and Gargoyle you can generate fat shields for your entire team.
    Cheap support item that passively helps a carry.
    Cheap support item that actively helps you and a carry.
    Splitpushing choices with good resistances. Can also give movespeed if conditions are met.
    If you're fed and already have a Rylai, buy this bad boy so you can burn everything caught in your path. Especially good vs tanks and might be your only hope of beating a lategame Nasus.
    If you're extremely fed you can upgrade a 10 stack Dark Seal into Mejai so you get 10% movespeed from it. Sell it after you're sure you can never bring its stacks back above 10.
    If Skarner/Malz/Urgot/Warwick won't stop ulting you.
    Buy this elixir if you're going for the final teamfight. And from that point on keep buying it after you've reached full build.
    Buy these if you can go for a backdoor attempt.
Inferior Items That Should Not Be Built, Ever

  • 3070.png rip old passive
  1. Singed has mana issues at level 2 only.
  2. You won't upgrade it because you absolutely don't need 1400 mana.

  • 3027.png muh galio build
  1. 3010.png is good.
  2. Building it into 3001.png is better.
  3. Being able to buy 3379.png is much better.

  • 3152.png https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sk_3e2obBYs
  1. The dash takes longer than casting 4.png.
  2. You can't use abilities while dashing. The bolts don't slow either, unless you have Glacial Augment for some reason.
  3. Completely useless on a tank.

  • 3117_32.png Boots of Bronzility
  1. "Wow it is so cheap and gives a lot of movespeed!" 
  2. WHEN OUT OF COMBAT. WHEN NOT DEALING OR TAKING ANY DAMAGE.
  3. 3009.png gives more basespeed + slow resistance for the same cost.

  • 3056_32.png oxymoron
  1. Buy a better item that builds from 2053.png.
  2. Why would a tank need to disable turret damage anyway

  •  3023_32.png 
  1. You have better alternatives for catching people.
  2. You have better alternatives for slowing people too.

  • 3152_32.png2041_32.png

VS

Aatrox

Medium
  1. Rush 3047.png and/or 3076.png.
  2. megaadhesive.png after he uses his slow. Then he will jump on you. fling.png him now. Congratulations, you won the lane.
  3. Afer that start helping your teammates because there is no way an 266_64.png is going to die to you. Alone, that is. Ask for ganks if you'd like.
  4. Flinging him when he is about to drop off is a must. No knock ups for 266_64.png means he is a lesser 23.png.
  5. aatroxq.png is uninterruptible.
  6. His ult increases his range. Aatrox can attack over walls with that.

VS

Azir

Medium
  1. His poke is too much for every melee champion to handle, including you.
  2. Like how Riot says: "Try to think of Sand Soldiers as fire. Don't stand in the fire."
  3. Proxying won't help you much, he can still poke and chase you for hours.
  4. You'll get better results proxying than you'll ever get laning, however. 
  5. If you want to all in 268_64.png you'll have to bypass his wall, slowing soldiers and a single soldier dash which grants him a shield if he hits you while diving his own turret every single time. You can get stuck between azirR.png and a wall so beware.
  6. 3194.png ruins Azir.
  7. You should focus this guy before he spams his soldiers onto your carries.
  8. azirpassive.png is free gold.
  9. You can disrupt azirE.png with your fling.png
  10. You can't fling.png him with you when he casts azirR.png.
  11. megaadhesive.png prevents Azir from using his E. Though it requires another ability, his W, to dash; the ability does nothing on its own, unlike Jarvan's abilities.

VS

Camille

Easy
You can freely pick Singed into Camille, it's a counterpick!
  1. In early laning phase, go for the minions when she isn't going for them. camilleq.png is an auto resetting spell that can be cast twice so you'll get dicked in a second at early levels if you're not careful.
  2. camillee.png has 2 dashes. If you see Camille using that on a wall, IMMEDIATELY place megaadhesive.png under her so she can't cast the second dash!
  3. Literally everything that Camille can do vs you is spamming camillew.png and hoping that Comet kills you (hint: it doesn't).
  4. Rush 3047.png for safety.
  5. Use fling.png only for kicking her out of her ult.
  6. Don't fling.png her when she procs her passive. That shield is huge.
  7. Activate insanitypotion.png as soon as she activates camiller.png.
  8. If you push lane don't just sit in front of her, but don't proxy either. She heals a ton with camillew.png and if you get hit by its edge you'll get slowed, 164.png gets healed and gains attack speed.
  9. megaadhesive.png prevents Camille from ulting and using Hookshot.

VS

Cassiopeia

Hard
  1. Try to not get cheesed early. Cassio can destroy you starting at level 1!
  2. 69_64.png can't initiate constant trades before she buys 3070_32.png.
  3. The later the game the more powerful she becomes. This is why you should rush a MR item very early. 3194.png is a gift from above.
  4. Focus her first on teamfights or she'll kill your whole team, one by one.
  5. Run away from 69_64.png whenever she approaches you. You may never know if they are scrpiting or not.
tsm at msi 2015 lul

VS

Cho'Gath

Hard
  1. Start 1056.png and take 5abd57da0f30230001f3edd9?width=32 so you have a lot of HP early. 
  2. Only go for trades if he uses vorpalspikes.png for waveclear.
  3. No trades at all past level 6.
  4. Go ham when you see him ulting a minion.
  5. Try to peel him away from your carries.
  6. Focus on their 157_64.png if they have one.

VS

Darius

Hard
  1. If you want to main Singed you should ban Darius every game.
  2. When he charges dariuscleave.png, you cast Fling right before it deals damage. This way he will be midair, on top of you and you will only take the damage from the handle, which prevents Darius from healing. This will probably be hard to do every single time, and is straight up impossible if you're slowed by his W beforehand.
  3. So long as you have enough HP regen you can stall for ganks after a failed all-in after level 6.
  4. Don't tilt when you die a lot. It happens.

VS

Diana

Easy
  1. 3194.png.
  2. You can go proxy to put Diana behind.
  3. Diana can't ult under megaadhesive.png.
  4. You can fling.png Diana mid-ult anyway.

VS

Dr. Mundo

Medium
  1. Go proxy early. If you mess his early it takes a very long time for him to get tanky.
  2. If you can't, try not to get poked. Mundo sucks at early trades because he pretty much kills himself on each ability cast.
  3. If he catches you you will mostly likely eat a few more cleavers.
  4. After 6 this lane should have a clear winner. His ult will either be too much to handle for you or vice versa.
  5. Mundo outscales you hard in lategame so be careful and don't try to 1v1.
  6. You can build 3076.png to send a message.
  7. If your team does not have 3123.png and/or 3165.png spam the Surrender Vote every time.
  8. Most of the time you both will farm and gank lanes.

VS

Ekko

Medium
  1. FACT: 245_64.png IS MELEE AND HE HAS TO BASH YOU WITH HIS AUTOS TO SHOW HIS REAL POWER. Just don't let him auto you; his spells deal no damage anyways.
  2. ekkoe.png is a double dash and the 2nd part is also an autoattack so megaadhesive.png may not consistently be able to prevent that attack.
  3. Stay behind your minions and only go farming when he uses his ekkoQ.png to push.
  4. Keep him pinned at his turret at early levels, go proxy after he finishes an item and isolate him from his team (or isolate his team from him) then you'll win every teamfight.
  5. And finally, please don't die. Don't ask for ganks either. Take no risks. Thank.
  6. If he is diving you, hug your tower so that he just may use his ekkoE.png onto the tower and not you. 
  7. If you Snare him he can't E or ult.

VS

Elise

Medium
  1. No Health or MR item will save you.
  2. Rush 3111_32.png.
  3. Hide in brush to lose her eliseW.png aggro.
  4. Kite Spider Form 60_64.png.
  5. Go proxy. 60_64.png sucks at chasing.
  6. You can disrupt Spider 60_64.png's Q with fling.png or prevent her from casting it altogether with megaadhesive.png.
  7. If the enemy is going to turret dive you activate whatever you have and run all the way back to your base. eliseE.png deals no damage so she has no turret aggro while you are stunned. Also, Rappel.

VS

Fiora

Easy
hashinshin was WRONG
  1. Play around fioraq.png all the time.
  2. Force Fiora to proc a Vital behind you so that your minions start attacking her.
  3. Don't EVER Fling. Bait her Riposte every time. Only then you can Fling.
  4. If you get ulted stick to a wall and run away or stand still and fight.
  5. Buy 3047.png and/or 3076.png if you're behind. Rush them if you don't want to risk anything.
  6. 3116.png will ensure she won't do ANYTHING in teamfights. It's a good 1st item to buy vs her.
  7. Peel Fiora away in teamfights and you're guaranteed to win.
  8. fioraq.png can be disrupted by fling.png. It can't be used under megaadhesive.png.
  9. If you lose lane, always expect 114.png to come to the lane you're splitpushing. Run away when you see her because she will kill you if you're behind.

VS

Fizz

Hard
  1. He wins in every single trade thanks to fizzseastonepassive.png and he can end any bad trades with fizzjump.png.
  2. Be very passive early, he will deal a lot of damage before you can realize.
  3. Activate insanitypotion.png when he lands fizzmarinerdoom.png on you.
  4. The only ocassion you can try to kill him is when you complete 3116.png and he overextends without much mana.
  5. fizze.png and fizzq.png can't be used under megaadhesive.png.
  6. fling.png can disrupt fizzq.png.

VS

Galio

Medium
  1. galioq.png almost never one-shots your ranged minions so he will have to walk towards them. This is where you try to force a trade. Basically go all-in every time after he uses galioq.png.
  2. galiow.png slows him so it really helps you more than it helps him. Be careful of a 4.png play though.
  3. galioe.png makes him go a little behind, then dash forward. If you're on top of him he can never use this to escape.
  4. galior.png buffs his ally BEFORE 3.png finishes landing.
  5. Do not towerdive. Galio almost always maxes galiow.png second so it gives them a lot of damage reduction. More than your ult will ever give.
  6. Obviously you can disrupt galioe.png with fling.png but standing on top of him is way easier.
  7. galioe.png or galior.png can't be used under megaadhesive.png.
  8. Reminder: Galio has the 2nd highest Base HP of all champions at level 18.
  • galioidolofdurand.png was a better ult rip

VS

Gangplank

Hard
  1. Rush Tabi to have a slight chance of staying in lane.
  2. He will always somehow return with a 3057.png on first back. The later you delay that item from him the longer you'll win this lane.
  3. His barrels are hard to destroy for a Singed because he has a bad AA delay. You can try but it's too risky.
  4. Proxy screws him up HARD as he can't tank minions properly and removescurvy.png costs a lot of Mana.
  5. Don't dive him, alone or with allies, if he has gangplankr.png.
  6. 41.png can 1v1 anyone and he LOVES beating tanks. Work with your team to shut him down.
  7. Focus him first in teamfights all the time. A single barrel can win the game for his team and it's not your responsibility to attack the barrels.
  8. If he went tank or full Lethality, even Randuin can't save you. Not even God.
  9. He can removescurvy.png out of your snare and for some reason using that ability completely prevents megaadhesive.png from grounding him again for its duration, even though megaadhesive.png is supposed to constantly apply the Grounded effect just like cassiopeiaw.png.
  10. Learn to play Vlad to shut Gangplanks down in your future games until GP stops being meta.

VS

Garen

Medium
  1. Fling Garen all day every day. You can Fling him right before he silences you so you can escape from garenbladestorm.png.
  2. Always sneak autos after trades so his passive will delay.
  3. Don't Fling him after he uses garenw.png. It lasts for 3 seconds.
  4. Q and 3078.png hurts a LOT. If he buys that you should go proxy or you can die after just a few autos. Garen will max Q with that item so his waveclear will be bad.
  5. E and 3071.png shreds a LOT. If he buys that you should keep laning and Fling him out when he casts E to waveclear. Garen will max E with that so his all-ins will be bad.
  6. Exit lane if you are low on health. Stop laning if you are marked as the Villain.
  7. You should force him to ult you constantly in teamfights so your carries will be safe. Take one for the team.
  8. Minions don't stop his passive. Proxying may be ineffective.
  • The reason everybody hates 86_64.png ult is that people knows when they are dead. And garenjustice.png simply executes their already known death with an obnoxious scream and a flashy effect. We get it, we got caught.

VS

Gnar

Hard
  1. 150_64.png that freezes lane spells your doom. You can't close a gap when a ranged champ with infinite chasing power is sitting under his tower.
  2. You should only consider trading when he goes Mega. At least he's melee.
  3. Check his items. If he is building 3022.png you should buy Rylai AND Swifties.
  4. Proxying is a good choice.
  5. Disengage with fling.png when he jumps on you as Mega.
  6. Avoid staying near walls if he is Mega.
  7. You can disrupt gnarE.png (both forms) with your Fling. megaadhesive.png prevents him from casting it altogether.
  8. You can Fling 150_64.png while he's ulting.

VS

Gragas

Easy
  1. He has innate sustain and his barrel hurts. If he can aim it on you that is.
  2. Even though all of his abilities are AoE he will mostly rely on gragasq.png for waveclear. Force him to make a decision: He either Qs you for a bit of damage or Q the minions and let you walk around freely.
  3. Him using gragasdrunkenrage.png means he wants a trade. Hide behind your minions.
  4. You can't fling.png him away when he gragasbodyslam.pngs on you. Even if you do it doesn't knock him away, it just deals damage.
  5. I suggest constantly pusing the wave. Guy runs outta mana very quickly.
  6. Proxying would work too I guess. Just don't give him free kills.
  7. Get early MR if you messed up.
  8. In teamfights if you sit on top of Gragas all the time he won't be able to use gragase.png successfully.
  9. megaadhesive.png prevents casting gragase.png.

VS

Graves

Medium
  1. The very early phase of laning will be a nightmare only. As time passes you'll win everything.
  2. Rush Tabi.
  3. If he wants to poke he has to use gravesmove.png. Punish him for doing that by Flinging him.
  4. Ganks ensure a kill, especially post 6 since he can't escape you at all.
  5. fling.png disrupts gravesmove.png and graveschargeshot.png's dash. They can't be cast under megaadhesive.png
  6. Graves' autoattacks can be blocked by pretty much anything. Minions, turrets, wards, etc.

VS

Hecarim

Easy
  1. 120_64.png's hitbox is too damn large to CS with autoattacks but thanks to your poison you won't have much problem unlike other melee champions.
  2. Avoid trades with him because of his high heal-per-second hecarimw.png if he has Thunderlord /spammable hecarimrapidslash.png if he has Fervor.
  3. If you succeed in killing 120_64.png you will force him to buy an early 3211_32.png or even rush 3065_32.png, which will delay that 3078_32.png spike a lot and make him run oom fast.
  4. Neither of you will be killed when ganked.
  5. Use 12.png to follow 120_64.png to where he goes.
  6. Always stand in front of him after finishing 3116_32.png to counter him in fights.
  7. Recall immediately if you are low on HP. Don't try anything stupid.
  8. This one is really hard to pull off but you can fling.png 120_64.png as he casts hecarimult.png. Give your carries breathing time.
  9. 120_64.png can negate your fling.png's displacement with hecarimramp.png.
  10. hecarimramp.png targeting has a stupid mechanic so if he is trying to dive you under a Tier 2 just run around the tower and he'll most likely kill himself. That's only one of the many bugs that skill has.
  11. hecarimult.png can't be cast under megaadhesive.png.

VS

Heimerdinger

Hard
  1. Proxy. 
  2. Heimer is useless without minions and h28gevolutionturret.pngs are not known for tanking minions.
  3. Don't bother diving him. Just don't.
  4. Either focus him while his turrets are away from him or focus him first in a teamfight before he sets all 4 of his h28gevolutionturret.pngs.
  5. Pick Sion next time. Max E and watch as hilarity ensues (for you).

VS

Illaoi

Easy
  1. Just run around like a madman as you dodge her tentacles. There is absolutely nothing else you need to do to beat her.
  2. Rush 3047.png to ensure you won't ever lose a fight.
  3. She has no escapes so if you isolate her in a teamfight she has no option but to ult. Be extremely careful or you might throw the game.
  4. You can disrupt illaoiW.png with your fling.png.
  5. You can NOT disrupt her when she initially casts illaoiR.png.
  6. You can always 1v1 420.png. Your team, can not.
  7. PLEASE TELL YOUR JUNGLER TO NOT 1V1 ILLAOI AT ANY STAGE IN THE GAME. THEY ALL DIE. SPAM PINGS AND DEATH THREATS IF NECESSARY.

VS

Irelia

Easy
  1. Irelia jumps on everything that has low Health. Be careful at level 2.
  2. ireliaw.png cannot be interrupted with Fling. When you see her standing still and spinning, just try to get into a better position to Fling.
  3. ireliar.png disarms you so you can't Sky Autoattack.
  4. 3047_32.png will reduce a lot of damage.
  5. You can disrupt ireliaq.png with Fling.

VS

Janna

Easy
Twitch-Janna cheese is a thing and not limited to midlane only.
Follow these steps to get a free lane and a free win.
  1. Ward your lane before you're level 2.
  2. Ward your lane at the 3rd minute.
  3. Ward the enemy red buff at all times.
  4. Ward your lane if you see their jungle taking his red buff.
  5. Janna can't farm even if he tries so Twitch will definitely tax this lane.
  6. You can go easy mode and just proxy far far away (between inhib and middle towers). You'll have to leave if you don't see Janna though.
  7. Focus Twitch in teamfights and/or Fling Janna when she ults.

VS

Jarvan IV

Medium
  1. Take 4.png. This probably means you gotta buy 3800.png to be fast and that also means you gotta build full tank.
  2. Getting hit by his jarvanivpassive.png proc'd autoattacks are OK but get hit by one jarvanivdemacianstandard.pngjarvanivdragonstrike.png combo and you'll lose a chunk of health.
  3. Get 3047_32.png to win lane. Get 1031_32.png if you fail.
  4. fling.png him out if he uses jarvanivcataclysm.png on you. 59_64.png will always jarvanivdemacianstandard.pngjarvanivdragonstrike.png and then jarvanivcataclysm.png so his skills will be on cooldown. He will wait outside like a vulture.
  5. Deny his dash with fling.png. He is unstoppable while ulting.
  6. megaadhesive.png only prevents him from ulting. Since jarvanivdemacianstandard.pngjarvanivdragonstrike.png are not dash abilities on their own, and they "synergize" with each other, he can use that to escape.

VS

Jax

Medium
I guess 27.png and 24_64.png are bros since they both get buffed for no reason constantly by Riot for no reason. But Riot loves Singed more than Jax, obviously.
  1. Rush 3047.png.
  2. Jax is a monster with his damage and splitpushing power in lategame. Singed is also a monster with his damage and splitpushing power, but in midgame. Build damage so you can close out the game before Jax destroys everything.
  3. If he jumps on you then activates jaxcounterstrike.png just kite him away. If he jaxcounterstrike.pngs and then jumps, Lock Fling him (just buffer Fling or spam it on him so you cast it the moment he gets in range) so that he can't attack you when you are stunned.
  4. Your ultimates both grant resistances and yours last longer. Kite him with your ult if he uses his then try killing him when his ult ends.
  5. You'll know a Jax is good if he can freeze the lane. A bad Jax would die to you early and try to rush 3211.png.
  6. jaxleapstrike.png can be disrupted with Fling. It can't be used under megaadhesive.png 
  7. Peel Jax away from your carries in teamfight. He will always activate jaxcounterstrike.png before jumping so you'll know when he is going in.

VS

Jayce

Hard
  1. 126_64.png has insane snowball potential on you so try not to be poked.
  2. Don't let him dump his entire combo on you early on. Use megaadhesive.png so he doesn't jump on you in melee form. Because if he does you're probably dead.
  3. Early game is all yours fortunately. You can even get First Blood if he is careless.
  4. Rush 3047_32.png. Get 3076.png too if Tabi alone doesn't work.
  5. Proxying DESTROYS him, if you manage to start proxying, then don't leave until they bring 2-3 people to stop you.
  6. You can and should fling.png him when he jumps on you to knockback.

VS

Karthus

Easy
  1. Stay with your minions all the time or be forced to juke his bombs every second.
  2. Run away if he uses his wallofpain.png. It is a perfect gank setter.
  3. Rush early HP and MR and you'll be fine.
  4. If he ever tries to fallenone.png when alive fling.png him at all costs. fallenone.png has 3 min cooldown at early levels.
  5. His late game is gonna be enourmous so be sure to shut him down with your team.
  6. Buy 3105.png if necessary.
  • If 30.png buys 3285.png/1402.png and he ults, do you know what happens?
    Only the first champion that your team picked in Champion Select gets the proc. For example your team's first picks is Top and he picks 4.png to swap with his midlaner. If the 30.png has that item, every single time he ults 4.png will get the proc, if available. If the 4.png was dead while 30.png was ulting, then the second champion your team picked will get procd. And so on.
  • Same happens with a 16.png with 3174.png. For all other champion interactions, the closest target gets procd.

VS

Kassadin

Easy
  1. Shove the lane 24/7 so you force him to use skills to waveclear. Kass players have a thing for not using nulllance.png on minions.
  2. Avoid trading autoattacks with him as 38_64.png will regain a lot of mana if he hits a champion with netherblade.png.
  3. Don't be afraid to toggle poisontrail.png on and off, it doesn't affect his forcepulse.png.
  4. After 6 with a gank you can dive 38_64.png any time you want. Just be sure your ally comes up behind 38_64.png so that he won't be able to riftwalk.png away from you, or his outer turret.
  5. You can disrupt riftwalk.png with fling.png. But sometimes you just do its animation and laugh, without any damage or actual CC, and sometimes it goes on cooldown and sometimes it doesn't.
  6. Drop megaadhesive.png on your low HP carries in teamfights because after Kass gets a kill he'll probably get a few more. Though you may be using your carries as bait like this, at least it will stop him from ulting.

VS

Katarina

Hard

VS

Kayle

Hard
  1. You win absolutely everything before level 6 so long as you don't get poked.
  2. judicatorrighteousfury.png will not be active all the time so play around its cooldown and you will EASILY destroy Kayle.
  3. After she finishes 3115.png she will have judicatorrighteousfury.png on forever. Either try proxying or forcing her out of lane.
  4. Buy 3194.png
  5. After you finish an item you should try to go all-in. Bait judicatorintervention.png beforehand. It only lasts for 2/2.5/3 seconds. insanitypotion.png lasts for TWENTY FIVE.
  6.  10.png cannot kite you for the full length of insanitypotion.png, only the first few seconds will be hard because of judicatorreckoning.png and judicatordivineblessing.png but that's about it.
  7. She is invincible late game due to her items (usually something like this 3115.png3124.png3116.png3091.png). Unless you catch her and she dies without ulting, there isn't much you can do in teamfights.
  8. If Kayle has 3116.png buy your own and/or 3009.png.
  9. Reminder: Kayle has the 4th highest Base HP of all champions at level 18.

VS

Kennen

Hard
  1. Either ban 122.png or 85_64.png every game. Keep in mind that more people play Darius than Kennen.
  2. Rush boots. Tabi or Merc, depends on what he's building.
  3. Try to push your wave all the time because he will eventually outscale you in every aspect.
  4. Ask for ganks to go all-in, especially post level 6.
  5. If he has 3022.png he'll chase you forever, but he won't be able to kill because he does not have a constant speed boost and a dash like 150.png.
  6. fling.png him to your team even if he has ult, he will melt.

VS

Kha'Zix

Easy
  1. poisontrail.png is no longer coded as a minion so be careful not to be isolated LUL
  2. No sitting under his turret. Either proxy between inhi and 2nd turret or freeze lane.
  3. No proxying if you died to him a few times.
  4. No fights near bushes.
  5. No more surprising bursts. Get 3047.png/1031.png if he deals too much damage.
  6. No dead carries. Disrupt khazixE.png with your fling.png.
  • It's been three years since I wrote this matchup. He even got reworked but eveyrthing still holds true.

VS

Kled

Medium
  1. He is only annoying in lane. He has absolutely nothing useful in a teamfight, especially against your power.
  2. Don't stand near your minions as 240.png will always Q them because that's his only way of waveclear until he gets 3077.png.
  3. 3047.png shuts him down.
  4. Lock Fling on him if you ever take his passive down so that he can't Q away.
  5. 3116.png will make sure 240.png never gets to activate his W.
  6. fling.png doesn't help shit as he can cast his dash twice if it hits you. His ult makes him CC immune too. It at least disrupts dismounted Q.
  • Kled ult can't be toggled off at will so it will always try to hit your allies. It can even charge all the way to your base.

VS

Lee Sin

Medium

So much mobility in one champion and Riot decided it would be a good idea not to remove the Blind Monk idea and make him a champion because of few players begging so years ago.

  1. Dodge all the shit he throws at you.
  2. Ward your lane.  64_icon_64.png can easily set up a gank and kill you whenever he pleases.
  3. At least 64_64.png is a very very squishy champion and you'll outscale him eventually. Everyone does.
  4. If you get hit by a blindmonkqone.png expect a full combo from him. Try to fling.png him while he is flying at you to gain time to react.
  5. Deny him from farming if he is maxing blindmonkwone.png like a wimp.
  6. Try not to delay 3116_32.png so you can actually try catching/kiting him.
  7. You can fling.png him if he is ulting you and 64_64.png will come with you.
  8. You also can fling.png him if he is trying to dash via his blindmonkqone.png or blindmonkwone.png.
  9. Snare him at every chance you get.

VS

Lissandra

Hard
  1. This matchup is Hard because 127_64.png can escape you easily just by using any of her skills. Her kit is literally made to shut you down.
  2. Just farm and push so that 127_64.png won't be able to harass you with lissandrapassive.png in a frozen(heh) lane.
  3. Rush 3111_32.png for VERY obvious reasons.
  4. You'll find peace in proxy. Do it.
  5. Stand like a vulture outside lissandraR.png if she casts it on herself. 
  6. You can prevent 127_64.png from running with her lissandraE.png by using fling.png her at the right time.

VS

Lucian

Hard
  1. Lucian players either freeze or shove lane all the time. There is no inbetween.
  2. Start 1054.png and rush 3047.png.
  3. Play around lucianQ.png all the time, and hope he wastes his mana for minions only.
  4. fling.png disrupts lucianR.png.
  5. 236.png can always take you 1v1 at any stage so work with your team to kill him.

VS

Lulu

Easy
If they have a Twitch jungle, you should probably refer to the Janna matchup. This one is for an actual Lulu matchup that actually lanes and doesn't stick to a niche.
  1. Stand behind your minions so that lulupassive.png won't hit you.
  2. You still have a chance to juke her luluq.png. even with lulue.png used on you before.
  3. 117_64.png sucks at pushing waves since %90 of the time she'll luluq.png on you and that thing doesn't deal full damage on all minions.
  4. A single MR item will make sure 117_64.png can't touch you. Almost nobody builds Magic Penetration here on toplane.

VS

Malphite

Easy
  • 54_64.png almost all the time maxes landslide.png for waveclear and winning trades. Since attack speed doesn't affect you he may want to max seismicshard.png to win trades, which means he will have very low waveclear.
  1. He'll 100% go for 3751.png and 3211.png so you'll never be able to kill him, and he'll earn a little more waveclear.
  2. If you think he is maxing seismicshard.png going proxy will force him to max landslide.png. His first +5 skill would be delayed.
  3. Buy 3211.png for yourself if you can't go for a proxy and he is being annoying.
  4. Don't think about tower diving him unless you have more than 1 ally with you.
  5. Focus on their 157_64.png if they have one.
  6. Never go on a trade if he has 3025.png.
  • ufslash.png dash speed scales with bonus movespeed. Beware of 12.png flanks.

VS

Malzahar

Medium
  1. His passive is annoying because you can't start trades with fling.png which means you have to autoattack or poisontrail.png him.
  2. He can't help pushing the wave. His entire kit is designed for that. Ask for ganks often and he will die every single time.
  3. Post 6, avoid staying near him if you lost lane.
  4. Buy 3140.png. He will be so tilted if you're not the only one buying it.
  5. You should be the one to answer his splitpush, he can't run away from you and you clear minions fast.
  6. Get 3009.png because he will most definitely buy 3116.png.

VS

Maokai

Easy
  1. poisontrail.png doesn't interact with his Passive.
  2. fling.png him away after he uses his maokaiunstablegrowth.png so he can't follow up with his combo.
  3. You can't fling.png him midway through his maokaiunstablegrowth.png as he becomes untargetable.
  4. Feel free to proxy. 57.png can tank minions but it wouldn't be much of a problem. This lane is a big farm fest anyway.

VS

Master Yi

Hard
  1. Sitting in brush will prevent alphastrike.png from hitting you.
  2. Or you can bait him to use it specifically on you, and then move backwards to fling.png him back to your turret.
  3. If you reach level 6 first activate insanitypotion.png and kill him. He legit can't do anything.
  4. 11_64.png will eventually outscale you so hard that your team will have to peel him away from you, instead of the opposite.
  5. Use insanitypotion.png if he is charging at you with highlander.png and 3153.png active. Remember to say your prayers.
  6. Never ever let him meditate.png in front of you.
  7. IF HIS ULT IS ACTIVE YOU CAN'T EVEN SNARE HIM WITH E+W BECAUSE HE IS IMMUNE TO THE SLOW IN THE FIRST PLACE. THANKS RIOT.
  8. 3124.png is broken. You lose the game if Yi builds it.
  • Remember when alphastrike.png used to hit you if and only if you turned your back? Those were the days.

VS

Mordekaiser

Medium

Putting this Honorable Mention here because I love Morde so much.

  1. He will constantly push the wave, regen both HP and Shield, and poke you while doing so. Asking ganks early will make sure he never dares wandering outside his turret ever again.
  2. But be careful while you are ganking him, 82.png can easily, VERY VERY EASILY 1v2 you guys.
  3. Don't ask any ganks post level 6.
  4. After you get 3116.png you pretty much make him useless for the rest of the game. Run with your carries so 82.png never catches them.

VS

Morgana

Easy
"Morgana applied to be the drummer of Pentakill, but couldn't perform at the audition because her snare is broken."
  1. Don't stand in tormentedsoil.png.
  2. But keep a distance between your minions not to get snared.
  3. Going proxy will result better as you won't get poked and 25.png players can't be bothered to aim a darkbindingmissile.png on a fast target so she will happily tank minions and you two will farm happily ever after.
  4. Buy 3111_32.png no matter what. Her snare is deadlier than a 4 AD team.
  5. End trades after she casts blackshield.png. Do not use fling.png in a trade.
  6. She has quite a lot of AD for a ranged champ so avoid getting autoattacked. Her Attack Range is short though so that can help you reach her faster.

VS

Nasus

Hard
  1. Take Aery. Buy Rylai first item.
  2. nasusq.png is an autoattack. If he EVER uses it on you, fling.png him to your minions. He will take a lot of damage from them.
  3. If he decides to farm, then you Fling him to your minions just as he is moving in for the last hit. Do this multiple times and you'll start to annoy him. 
  4. You should try freezing the minions throughtout the entire laning phase. Only push when you're ridiculously ahead or when he recalls.
  5. If he uses E at any scenario he will chunk his mana. This will benefit you in the long run. Also don't just stand on it, that thing reduces your Armour.
  6. Nasus is one of the only matchups where I won't recommend rushing 3800.png. Rush 3116.png instead (and 3151.png then3001.png too if laning didn't end by then). He'll try to rush 3194.png if he is smart so you should build more damage (Some Nasus players mistakingly ignore your damage and build random CDR items that do not benefit him at all). If you directly go tank he'll just lifesteal through the minions, you, and all of your teammates.
  7. If he bought Sheen be mindful about your Health. Obviously since you built damage you can kill him in an extended skirmish but you'll just die if you go all-in with %50 HP. 
  8. Past level 6 "try" to towerdive. Just Fling him and if he is low HP enough, he will have no choice but to ult. After forcing his ult, just run away. After his ult expires he'll gain that base HP but you can safely dive him now! Enjoy your free kills!
  9. Just don't forget to buy 3800.png. Not rushing it doesn't mean never ever buying it.
  10. DON'T. EVER. PROXY. If you don't bully him and don't take his towers he will come back 30 mins later with your team's scalps on his belt.
  11. Reminder: nasusr.png HALVES nasusq.png's cooldown. If you can't kite him he will run through your team.
  12. Don't buy 3512.png. He'll stack through it.

VS

Nautilus

Easy
  1. Rush 3111.png.
  2. Watch him die as he dies to ganks because he can't stop pushing minions.
  3. Don't do stupid stuff and you won't die to one of the worst toplaners at the moment.
  4. He can't reach your team after you complete 3116.png. If he does, stand in front of your carries so he doesn't point-blank nautilusanchordrag.png to get an extra hit.

VS

Nidalee

Medium
This matchup is Hard because 76_64.png is invincible under her turret, splitpushes like there is no tomorrow and is almost uncatchable.

AD 76_64.png
  1. Avoid getting hit by her spears early; she'll jump on you and take you to half HP if you don't.
  2. Rush 3047_32.png.
  3. Don't chase her, you'll hardly ever catch up.
  4. She will only poke you in human form and go all-in in cougar. 
  5. Be very careful if you are getting ganked while 76_64.png is in front of you.
  6. Avoid trades with her, you'll never be able to kill her alone.
  7. Don't towerdive 76_64.png.
  8. You can catch 76_64.png mid-Pounce with your fling.png.
AP 76_64.png
  1. Avoid getting hit by javelintoss.pngs.
  2. Don't stay near her and her cougar form will be totally useless.
  3. Go proxy early; AP 76_64.png is bad at pushing unlike AD 76_64.png.
  4. Don't chase her; you'll hardly catch up.
  5. Don't carelessly step into her traps.
  6. Don't towerdive 76_64.png.
  7. You can catch 76_64.png mid-Pounce with your fling.png.

VS

Nocturne

Medium
  1. I don't like 56_64.png for one reason. All of his skill visuals are black. I can't see anything.
  2. Get fling.png at level 2 if he got his nocturneunspeakablehorror.png. Get megaadhesive.png if he has nocturneshroudofdarkness.png
  3. 56_64.png runs faster towards Feared enemies. And the source of that Fear doesn't have to be him. Beware of 9_64.png120_64.png and 35_64.png ganks.
  4. Not much to say, most of the time laning phase will be about farming and often a failed all-in attempt by him.
  5. You can proxy far far away (like, 19_64.png kind of far far away) to prevent him ulting you.
  6. You can't disrupt Nocturne while he is dashing via nocturneparanoia.png so you should be a peeler for your carries to shut 56_64.png down. Just make sure his nocturneshroudofdarkness.png doesn't block your fling.png.

VS

Nunu

Easy
+ What does Nunu do late game?
absolutezero.png.
  1. 20_64.png sucks at pushing.
  2. Getting early MR will win you the lane since 20_64.png really can't kill you in any way and there is no way he can take your turret first.
  3. The only thing you gotta be careful about is that 20_64.png can freely channel absolutezero.png under your turret without getting aggro. (ABSOLUTE ZERO TURRET AGGRO)
  4. Interrupt absolutezero.png no matter how late it is. It reduces its damage and slow drastically.
  5. -obligatory ap nunu snowballs so hard joke-

VS

Olaf

Hard
  1. Don't underestimate your level 1-2 damage. Sure Olaf deals a lot of damage too but if he misses a single axe he will lose the all in. Or he will keep laning with half HP and no Mana.
  2. Force him to use axes for waveclear. Never let him pick them up.
  3. Just run away from every trade after he finishes 3071.png. You might wanna go proxy to farm so ward the enemy jungle.
  4. The one who loses lane will be removed from the game entirely. Don't worry though, you both will be useless in lategame :)
  5. Remember that olafragnarok.png reduces his resistances by 20/30/40 but grants him AD (and a speed boost).
  6. Your ult lasts longer than his by a very large amount. Bait his ult with yours, run away, then catch him.
Fun Facts about Ragnarök!
  • 2_64.png can't cast it when airborne, or hit by bardR.png.
  • His AD is still reduced if he gets hit by mockingshout.png or trundleQ.png.
  • sejuanie.png can still be used for damage.
  • 22.png won't be able to crit.
  • He can pass through the initial cast of every ability that counts as a wall. 

VS

Ornn

Hard
  1. This isn't professional play. Singed doesn't beat let alone counter Ornn.
  2. Ornn has 4 knock ups. You have one. Guess who wins this matchup.
  3. His ornne.png hitbox is HUGE so before you can even attempt to cast Fling you'll be hit by it.
  4. In lane, don't just sit and eat his entire ornnw.png. It is an overloaded ability that shields Ornn (scales with his max HP), deals damage per second to all in front of him (scales with the targets' max HP), makes you Brittle, increases the duration of CCs thrown into you, with the first CC dealing bonus damage (scales with your max HP)to you, and lastly makes Ornn's first autoattack knockback those Brittle targets.
  5. fling.png can really mess his ornne.png and ornnr.png in teamfights. If you can time your Fling so that he misses his ult window you can turn teamfights around.
  6. megaadhesive.png prevents ornne.png from being cast. Also ornnr.png but it's inconsistent.

VS

Pantheon

Medium
  1. Respect his poke. Don't just mindlessly poison the creeps at levels 1-3.
  2. Your minions will be aggro'ed from his Qs and Ws so ward brushes to make the minions attack him.
  3. Never take full damage from pantheon_heartseeker.png.
  4. Don't fling.png him if he hasn't used pantheon_leapbash.png or you'll lose the trade.
  5. Get 1029.png on first back. This means his 3134.png will have no value early on.
  6. Do Sky Autoattacks very often. (Pressing A and leftclicking to a place near the target you are currently using fling.png on to land a free autoattack on the target.) If you can get his pantheonpassive.png down in a trade first you will win.
  7. Save your fling.png for pantheon_grandskyfall_jump.png. That's his only way of escaping from you.
  8. Disrupt his pantheon_leapbash.png mid-air with fling.png. Save people.

VS

Poppy

Hard
  1. Push lane for level 2 so you dont get poppye.pngpoppyq.png'd for half of your HP.
  2. 78.png gains bonus Armor and MR thanks to poppyparagonofdemacia.png's passive. If she drops below %40 HP, that bonus is doubled. Don't attempt a dive if you guys aren't sure if she'll die. She doesn't for about %90 of the time.
  3. I recommend proxying if she has a complete Magic Resist item but no 3751.png. She will run oom after 3-4 waves.
  4. Try to dodge poppydiplomaticimmunity.png in teamfights, or if you can, just fling.png her while she's channeling it.
  5. You can disrupt poppyheroiccharge.png with fling.png but it sometimes may still stun the target. 

VS

Quinn

Hard
  1. Lose.
  2.  quinnQ.png removes sight so you cant click on anything while she casts quinnE.png
  3. If you can dodge that AoE thing then I guess you can Lock Fling her out of quinnE.png and probably go for an all-in.
  4. There are 2 methods you can lane without getting absolutely rekt though: Either you ask for a camp or you go full proxy.
  5. Not much you can do alone. Buy 3047.png and say your prayers.

VS

Rek'Sai

Easy
  1. Until you rush 3047_32.png avoid trading with her.
  2. Go proxy so that you can destroy her tunnels. They give 5 gold.
  3. fling.png her when she is about to Unburrow so she can't hit you.
  4. Dealing damage to 421.png will disrupt reksaiR.png. She makes a really weird voice so you'll know when she begins channeling it.
  5. If you manage to find out which tunnel she ulted ping it to your teammates.
  6. You can fling.png her while she is burrowed. Nothing special happens if you're wondering.
  7. She can go over ANY wall. Beware of surprise ganks.
  • She can know the place of stealthed allies while burrowed but she can't reveal them.
  • If your team is trying a sneak attack from a brush don't move. Stand still and 421.png won't reveal any of you.
  • She can cast reksaiR.png on a Tunnel that you are standing on as it gets destroyed.

VS

Renekton

Hard
  1. Establish a lead in levels. Push the lane everytime you're about to level up.
  2. You might want to buy another Dark Seal instead of Boots on first back so you can do more in early laning. 
  3. Just run when you see him dashing into a minion. He'll stun you, unload his combo and then dash again back to safety and there's nothing you can do about that if that happens.
  4. You can disrupt renektonsliceanddice.png with your fling.png but that won't help much because he can dash twice. 
  5. megaadhesive.png is your safest bet.
  6. If you mess up it's going to be painful so try to proxy.

VS

Rengar

Medium
ONLY ONE SSW SKIN TO RULE THEM ALL
  1. Don't wander outside of your outer turret until minions spawn.
  2. Put megaadhesive.png on brushes and laugh hysterically. Because he won't be able to leap!!!!
  3. Be extremely careful when attempting a tower dive. rengarW.png may heal more than you'd expect.
  4. Constantly push your wave or go proxy so that 107_64.png will never use the bush advantage.
  5. Avoid staying near bushes if 107_64.png freezes lane. 
  6. Avoid getting hit by rengarE.pngfling.png him away if you do.
  7. Don't be tilted if you die a lot early, this means you're worth no gold and Rengar is worth a fortune. You can totally 1v1 him after you get a few items.
  8. You can disrupt his jumps with your fling.png.
  9. If you are getting ganked while proxying escape through the lane or the path with the least amount of bushes.
  10. Friendly reminder that 107_64.png can jump from the red buff bush to the golem camp. Be very careful when you see him trying to ward that place.

VS

Riven

Easy
27.png is the ultimate counter to 92.png. You've heard it here folks.
  1. Force 92_icon_64.png to chase you with her riventricleave.png casts. All of them fall for it. That's her only way of poking you after all.
  2. fling.png her away if it's her 3rd riventricleave.png cast. Now she'll be even more aggressive since she needs to get your health low or she'll lose lane.
  3. A single auto attack breaks her rivenfeint.png shield. Make her eat the poison ticks.
  4. You can disrupt any of her 4 dashes with fling.png. Not that you'll need it though, as they can't be cast under megaadhesive.png.
  • If you see her running at you while proxying at early levels turn OFF your poisontrail.png while trying to get executed. If 92_64.png blocks damage with rivenfeint.png and that target gets executed 92_64.png will get the kill.

VS

Rumble

Hard

VS

Ryze

Easy
  1. Rush 3111_32.png so he will have to 4.png if he wants to kill you when you're low on HP.
  2. Stay away from your minions all the time. It doesn't really matter whether 13.png is maxing spellflux.png or overload.png first.
  3. Go proxy between the inhi and middle turrets so that he doesn't desperatepower.png there before level 11. He wouldn't be able to chase you anyways.
  4. Focus him in teamfights because 13.png's mere presence tilts ADCs. He may get a big ass shield thanks to 3040_32.png active (and maybe from his Q ) but that's about it.

VS

Shaco

Easy
lol
  1. Push lane 7/24, proxy to your heart's content.
  2. megaadhesive.png prvents him from using deceive.png.

VS

Shen

Medium
  1. Try to rush level 2. He will try to do it too.
  2. Force trades constantly because this is the only phase of the game where you can 1v1 him.
  3. You can easily get First Tower gold if he decides to exit lane to help his team.
  4. Disrupt shenr.png with fling.png. If you failed, try to Teleport. If you don't have Teleport, ping its cooldown. If your team flames you for not helping then mute them.
  5. 98_64.png cannot push without 3748.png or 3751.png so feel free to proxy.
  6. If your team can't kill Shen then you better finish 3151.png.
  7. Don't try to fling.png Shen if he already taunted someone. The taunted allies may walk into the enemies because of it.

VS

Shyvana

Medium
  1. kite kite kite
  2. Finish your boots first.
  3. Slow her down every time she decides to run at you. fling.png her if she succeeds.
  4. shyvanatransformcast.png is uninterruptable.
  5. If you lose lane and can't afford 3047_32.png, you are going to be forced to build both 1031_32.png and 3211_32.png for defense.

VS

Singed

Easy
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kalj-Guxu_g
  1. Mirror his every move. If he is walking to you he wants to fling.png you, or leave a poison cloud in front of your minions.
  2. You two can fling.png each other at the same time. Do it.
  3. If he is proxying, so should you.
If enemy picks your 27.png in ranked I suggest you to pick a bruiser or a tank. Olaf can slap a Singed in lane and Sion just won't care at all. You can always rush Adaptive Helmet by the way. Or if you can play Yorick, pick him!

VS

Sion

Medium
TANK 14.png
  1. You MUST take Bone Plating so that his Comet damage is reduced heavily after sione.png hits you. Get Second Wind too if you're taking Aftershock.
  2. There is not much you can do alone until Riot fixes his E's hitbox.
  3. You can never kill him when he gets MR. And if you get hit by his abilities consider yourself dead.
  4. Proxying is a better result as he can't chase you. He will just gamble if he ults.
  5. Escape through the most curvy parts if caught proxying so that he won't ult you.
  6. Let him push under your turret, if he tries charging crypticgaze.pngfling.png him immediately, he will deal a small amount of damage since it got cancelled, but because he did deal it the tower will attack him.
  7. Don't fling.png him to disrupt crypticgaze.png otherwise; he will be able to cast it after 2 seconds. So your best try in dodging crypticgaze.png is running sideways. 
  8. Don't towerdive.
  9. Don't ever buy 3512.png. He'll farm HP through it. 
  10. Buy 3060.png, especially if he has his own.
  11. sionpassive.png sucks at chasing. 3116_32.png alone will ensure he'll die without doing anything. 
  12. Keep a track on your Nexus if its turrets are destroyed.
  13. Please fling.png his corpse away from your teammates.

FULL AD 14.png (don't try this at home, play 80.png instead)
  1. Rush your lane and wait for him in the farthest bush. If you don't he will sneak to the middle bush and hit you with a full charged crypticgaze.png which will cost half your HP at level 1.
  2. You will get slapped hard at level 1, but if you can manage to fling.png him you will win the trades.
  3. Let him push under your turret, if he tries charging crypticgaze.pngfling.png him immediately, he will deal a small amount of damage since it got cancelled, but because he did deal it the tower will attack him. It's up to you now if you want to kill him then and there.
  4. Rush boots ASAP to dodge crypticgaze.png.
  5. Proxying is recommended because 14.png goes oom fast.
  6. After you kill him 1-2 times you can do whatever the fuck you want. No need to buy Armor specifically for him.
  7. Please fling.png his corpse away from your teammates.
  • 14_64.png can cast cannibalism.png while Snared, his speed will increase but he won't move until it wears off.
  • cannibalism.png damages turrets. Just sayin'.

VS

Swain

Easy
  1. Hilarious damage output. If he misses his snare (his E, swaine.png) he's dead.
  2. Be careful when recalling at low health, swainw.png may kill you.
  3. Stand behind minions so his main damage source, swainq.png doesn't hit you. It pierces through dead minions though.
  4. Just walk away when he ults lol
  5. If you screwed up, buy 3194.png.
  6. Fling him away from your team when he charges in with his ult on.
  7. Diving Swain is hard, bait his ult first(lasts 12 seconds) and then go for an all-in.

VS

Tahm Kench

Hard
  1. Avoid getting hit. This includes (but are not limited to): His Glacial Augmented autoattacks, tahmkenchq.pngtahmkenchw.png.
  2. Avoid diving 223_64.png unless he doesn't have his tahmkenchE.png.
  3. Do nothing aggressive or stupid in general.
  4. 3140.png will take you outside his stomach but you WILL take the damage.
  5. Ask for ganks often.
  6. Go proxy to increase your chances of being useful.
  • If he saves an ally of his who you need to catch in a teamfight you can still fling.png 223_64.png on your team.
  • I hope your team doesn't lack damage if he somehow manages to tahmkenchW.png you. Imagine getting skarnerimpale.pngd under gravessmokegrenade.png and it lasted for 3 whole seconds. Damn.
  • 223_64.png can tahmkenchW.png his ally 9.png 85.png etc. as they deal damage and CC with crowstorm.png and kennenshurikenstorm.png
  • nautilusgrandline.png will chase down the target even if 223_64.png eats him. Moreover it will knock 223_64.png up. The initial target won't be damaged but 223_64.png will (the explosion one).
  • If 223_64.png eats an ally that has braumpassive.png stacks on him, the stack amount will be shown below 223_64.png but won't affect him. When he takes his ally out, then they will get their stacks back. (Which means you have to wait a little bit before you hit them for the stun.)
  • Any sort of damage taken will interrupt tahmkenchR.png.

VS

Teemo

Hard
  1. Try not to get poked too much before level 2. Starting from level 2, you can go all in if he doesn't have movequick.png.
  2. 3194.png ruins Teemo.
  3. So do ganks.
  4. Post level 6 you should try to pin him to his tower by proxying so he does absolutely nothing whole game.
  5. If you see him building 3116.png go for 3009.png instead. He won't kite you forever like a Kayle so don't really have to buy Rylai.

VS

Trundle

Hard
And I thought 4.png6.png 10.png top that BMs would be the hardest matchup.
  1. Try not to die.
  2. Die.
  3. Buy 3047.png and 3076.png in embarrassment.
  4. His level 1 is the strongest in the game, can even beat the likes of 98.png.
  5. 48_64.png wins. There is absolutely nothing you can do.
  6. Ask your jungler to camp you.
  7. Use everything in your power to kite him away. If you fail and have low HP due to this, recall.
  8. My best advice would be dodging or full proxying.
  • trundlecircle.png deals 1 true damage. If you got hit by it while proxying early you have to wait 13 more seconds to get executed.

VS

Tryndamere

Hard
  1. Reminder: Tryndamere has the highest base HP of all champions at level 1.
  2. Avoid any kind of trades with him. Do whatever necessary.
  3. Don't ever let him get close to you, your team, and your turrets throughout the whole game.
  4. Rush 3047_32.png. Get 3076.png too at some stage.
  5. Don't leave him splitpushing for too long.
  6. Tryndamere players aren't dumb, they will actually try to build CDR and movespeed to stick on people.3116.png will help if you see him building Phage, ER, etc.
  7. You can disrupt slashcast.png with fling.png. It can't be cast under megaadhesive.png.

VS

Urgot

Easy

Even though Urgot is ranged, he loses to you easily. Here's why:

  1. If you dodge his Q he can't trade at all.
  2. His main damage source is his urgotw.png (his W). It gives him a shield and lets him attack very fast. If you dodge his Q, this ability will only hit the closest thing. If you don't, then it will hit you ONLY.
  3. Even though urgotw.png is his main damage source, he will have to max Q first. So he won't deal any damage at all until level 13!
  4. btw that W of his slows him by a flat amount but grants %40 slow resistance? You don't even need 3116.png to deal with him. 
  5. If he gets fed somehow, buying 3047.png and/or 3076.png will still give you the advantage. (Urgot doesn't die to Bramble passive, he takes reduced damage from it just like how he deals reduced damage per hit from W)
  6. You can't buffer Fling as he dashes on you. Because Urgot has a mini stun before he collides with something, then he flings them. So you Fling him after he uses that dash, because he will definitely use urgotw.png right after it.
  7. His ult is stuff of nightmares though. Get hit by one and you'll have to disengage immediately. Also try to tank it for your carries, if you do then try not to die. Or kill Urgot first somehow (definitely not recommended) and your team will be free.

VS

Vayne

Hard
  1. You must establish a lead early. 67_64.png will outscale you eventually so you have to abuse her weak early and mid game.
  2. Rush 3047_32.png and buy 3076.png.
  3. Hide in a brush or go far away from 67_64.png to force her attack to a different target and clear your vaynesilveredbolts.png stacks.
  4. Do not be afraid to go all in after you finish a few items.
  5. After laning is over do not overextend. She'll simply kill you.
  6. In a scenario where you both use your ults 67_64.png is faster as long as she is chasing you.
  7. You can disrupt vaynetumble.png with your fling.png and you can Fling her with you when she uses her knockback. The latter won't work if you are going to get stunned.
  8. Just drop megaadhesive.png on her in teamfights and charge. That way, she can't vayneinquisition.pngvaynetumble.png instantly to play mindgames.
Don't pick 27_64.png into 67_64.png.

VS

Vi

Medium
  1. Always keep your distance. 254_64.png will wreck you if she ever catches you in melee range.
  2. 254_64.png likes building Armor Penetration so much; get 1031_32.png.
  3. Don't let her auto attack you. Ignore other things she throws at you.
  4. Don't towerdive 254_64.png.
  5. You can disrupt her viQ.png but you can't stop viR.png.
  6. Focus on their 157_64.png if they have one.

VS

Vladimir

Hard

REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

  1. Rush a Magic Resist item. 3111.png does not count.
  2. Flinging Vlad while he is channeling vladimire.png makes him release it early. You'll still get damaged and slowed (if you couldn't interrupt his channel under 1 second) however.
  3. Feel free to ban him next time.

VS

Volibear

Medium
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y9-MLgHxQGs
  1. 106_64.png will most likely start with 1054_32.png or 1028_32.png so he will have a lot of HP on early levels.
  2. Voli relies on high base damages to beat you. A full tank isn't a problem for you hopefully.
  3. He can only start trades with volibearq.png. If you can successfully outrun him or fling.png him away he won't ever be able to touch you.
  4. Don't start a trade by yourself too. He will win anyway.
  5. It's mostly a farm lane as you see.
  6. Use your fling.png when he charges at you and you'll throw each other at the same time.

VS

Warwick

Hard
  1. At early levels try to force 19_64.png to 4.png away by Flinging him to your turret. Next time he'll understand that he has to use warwickq.png better.
  2. 19_64.png has huge sustain and probably starts with 1056.png so you'll have to heavily rely on proxying. Proxying pre-6, especially if 19_64.png has a weak jungler, works wonders.
  3. If you're below %50 HP exit lane. Do not recall in the bush closest to your outer turret, as Warwick will sense it, passively or actively, and you may get ganked for it.  Recall next to a turret so they won't try risking a dive.
  4. Don't try an all-in until you get 3116.png. Especially at late game, where 19.png can stall 1v5 while he's below 50%/25% Health.
  5. Buy 3076.png at some stage of the game.
  6. warwickq.png can follow your 12.png if timed correctly.
  7. If he ults someone Fling him away!
  8. If you see him using warwicke.png Fling him away!
  9. megaadhesive.png prevents Warwick from ulting. 

VS

Wukong

Medium
  1. 62_64.png players LOVE tryharding. Expect many dives. Dying to him is only normal but don't overdo it.
  2. At early levels you gotta activate poisontrail.png the moment he jumps on you, so that he can't just spam his skills and get away. You will lose if you can't react to his burst.
  3. Don't Fling the decoy. It is really embarassing.
  4. Get 3047_32.png to not get slapped in lane.
  5. monkeykingspintowin.png doesn't knock the same target twice.
  6. You should fling.png him away from your team as he ults. You can also fling.png him while he is dashing. You really must stop him from slapping your carries or you will lose teamfights.

VS

Xin Zhao

Hard
  1. 3047.png and/or 3076.png. Bramble is better as most Xin players just buy every single lifesteal item in the game.
  2. Try to dodge xinzhaow.png as it's his only way of poking you. 
  3. Either drop W so he can't cast his charge, or Fling him when he uses it on you.
  4. Xin still takes full damage from your abilities even after casting xinzhaor.png so don't feel intimidated.
  5. You can disrupt xinzhaoe.png  with your fling.png. You can also fling.png him with you if he can knock you away with xinzhaor.png.
  6. xinzhaoe.png can't be used under megaadhesive.png.

VS

Yasuo

Medium
  1. Auto attack him to destroy his yasuopassive.png then harass him with poisontrail.png while he moves to charge it. If you buy 3076.png you won't have to do this. 
  2. Rush 3047.png.
  3. If a Yasuo sees you he will try to Q you. If you can dodge that thing constantly then you're fine. If you get hit by one, fling.png him to your minions and he will DIE.
  4. If he is building tank you have to buy 3116.png and 3009.png. Hope your team can kill him, because you sure won't be able to.
  5. yasuowmovingwall.png doesn't effect you in any way. Spam laugh if he uses it.
  6. Stay in brush when he has his knockup ready.
  7. Use your ult if he uses his. Reduce as much damage as possible.
  8. BUY 3143.png.
  9. You can disrupt his dashes with your fling.png. He won't be knocked back while in yasuorknockupcombow.png statis.
  10. megaadhesive.png prevents Yasuo from using his E or R.
  11. Save teamfights by Flinging him at the right time so that he can't press yasuorknockupcombow.png when your teammates are in mid-air by another champ's knock up. fling.png disables for approximately 1,5 seconds (up to 3,5 if you can Snare him). I won many games because of this. So can you. Focus him.

VS

Yorick

Hard
  1. You cannot win this matchup.
  2. 83.png is one of the ultimate Singed counters. If you lane he will kill you. If you proxy he can farm without having to tank minions. Or going oom.
  3. Rush 3009.png or you'll be sorry about it. You can never get out of yorickw.png on time, or dodge it entirely without swifties.
  4. If 83.png can't resurrect zombies with yorickq.png, it's okay to get hit by yoricke.png as it does nothing on its own.
  5. Once you get a few items you can try to kill him though. He isn't 122.png.
  6. I suggest picking a champion with good sustain, waveclear and maybe an auto reset such as 58.png31.png or 164.png. Not 36.png though, trust me.

VS

Zac

Easy
  1. 154_64.png will just kill himself if you safely step on his chunks.
  2. A shadow appears in the exact place where 154_64.png will zacE.png. Dodge it and he won't be able to chase you.
  3. Stay away from your minions. Force him to stay away from your minions too.
  4. You can disrupt him with your fling.png or megaadhesive.png when he is channeling his zacE.png.
  5. You can't fling.png him away after he already casts his ult.

VS

Zed

Easy
  1. Dodge his skills as often as possible and rush 3047.png; keep in mind that only his clone shadow has a slow.
  2. Activate insanitypotion.png immediately when he ults you. He will probably recall, most likely die, after failing to kill you.
  3. Bait his shadow and ask for a gank. 238_64.png lacks escapes without his shadow and zedR.png is no escape material. Feel ashamed of yourself if you get outplayed.
  4. 3157_32.png can be nice if you messed up heavily. Not recommended.
  5. If going all-in, try not to go for a direct Fling, just because you have a slight chance of you catching him mid-dash does not mean you must count on it. It doesn't work all the time. Use W first.

Early Game and Laning Back to Top

You enter the rift and start laning. 

  • Try to rush level 2. This is very important.
  • The flow of laning will be decided after both of you reach level 2. Minions will either push to one side or stay in the middle.
  • Against Easy matchups you get to control the minions waves. Try to freeze them fight near your tower, but not directly under it. This way you'll force the enemy to take unwanted trades just to get 1-2 CS.
  • Against Medium matchups both of you will just clear the minions, so there won't be much freezing. If one of you dies to the other, then that person wins the lane.
  • Against Hard matchups you will either be proxying full time, or literally sitting under your tower. Focus on the farm and try to Fling the enemy under your tower if he is careless.
  • If enemy is melee you should go in front of your low HP minions and drop a single cloud of poison to "harass" them.
  • Do not be afraid to pop Ghost to force enemy's Flash. If you do, you might even force them to base and use Teleport to return to lane.
  • You may have less CS than your opponent, it's fine. It won't matter after you finish 3116.png.
  • If you get ganked pop your insanitypotion.png first. You'll see which side is taking more damage so decide whether you want to go in for a kill(s) or just go base.

Mid Game and Teamfighting Back to Top

This is the part of the game where your team decides if they want a Late Game or not. 

  • Don't participate in any teamfights and keep splitpushing until you complete your first item.
  • Immediately pop everything that makes you fast and run straight to their carries. If they try to escape use your W. You should be able to catch, Fling and maybe even Snare them at this point.
  • If you are low on HP you can still charge at a low HP enemy and fling.png to your team as you run away. You are not a support so your plays when low on HP will not result in death.
  • Your main method of killing enemies is picking them off guard at this point.
  • If you catch an enemy overextending but you're alone, pop Shurelia/RG only to all-in him. If he is unable to escape, THEN use your ult and kill.
  • If your team is winning teamfights without you, focus on taking turrets. This way you will force the enemy to make a decision: Put someone against you and lose more teamfights, or go 4v5 while sacrificing the towers that you'll take.

Late Game/Splitpushing Back to Top

This is the part of the game where dying alone makes you regret everything. 

  • Always place wards before you splitpush. At this part of the game nobody cares if you are faster than them.
  • If your team is taking Baron, wait outside the pit to slow down the enemy. Your damage is nothing to a Baron unless you have 3151.png, even then the enemy would take more damage than Baron.
  • Try to use every speed boost you have to catch an immobile champion off-guard. It can win you the game.
  • Always save 12.png for a situation where you need to backdoor. If you don't have 3512.png don't even bother unless your minions are already hitting that Nexus (then you might want to buy stuff like 2139.png3060.png3057.png to hit that Nexus harder).
  • Your main method of killing enemies is forcing them to make mistakes at this point.
  • You should put fling.png on smartcast at this point if you already haven't. Because you may do something crazy exactly like this Rammus dude over here: https://youtu.be/15xAQ4TdcBg?t=49m22s 

Pros and Cons Back to Top

Pros

  1. He is a great harasser and zoner.
  2. He kills minions extremely fast. You can even do it with two waves at the same time.
  3. He can peel an entire team which makes him have a big effect in teamfights.
  4. He can go extremely fast so enemies won't have much time to counteract against you.
  5. He is a rare pick so people do not quite know how to deal with him. 
  6. Notice that in some guides for other champions you may see different starts and runes just against Singed. Forcing enemies to take precautions and most likely changing their playstyle is one of Singed's main jobs.
  7. You're backed by Riot. Singed will never be heavily reworked and he has the highest skill curve of ALL champions!

Cons

  1. Singed's playstyle is shared by no other champion so learning him will not help you get better at learning another champion's kit. (I guess you can start to like 2.png and 120.png simply because they are also too fast.)
  2. Extremely item reliant. Jarvan or Camille may not need flashy damage items to go big but Singed absolutely craves them.
  3. Kite comps ruin Singed hard. You may find yourself dodging games because of that.
  4. Splitpushing by yourself is hard when your team is losing fights.
  5. People won't take you seriously and may think you are trolling. They still exist on every elo.
  6. You need your team to follow you. If you die alone you'll accomplish nothing.
  7. Tryhards with 14.png will %100 kill you at level 2 if you are careless.
  8. If a champion with innate sustain rushes a MR item 27_64.png automatically loses lane.
  9. Running makes you good. Not running makes you bad. Therefore constant slows ruin your day.
  10. 3194.png does not have a cooldown so it pretty much permanently reduces your poisontrail.png damage by 15%. But if you do make a champ like Jax rush it, then it is good because he won't deal damage!
  11. 11_64.png is immune to any kind of slow, including Attack Speed Slows. He will easily destroy you.

Important Stuff About Singed Back to Top

Big thanks to g07h4xf00 for featuring this on his guide! Check his guide too [ www.lolking.net/guides/255326 ]
  1. Singed's default adaptive bonuses give AP.
  2. Singed is a melee champion whose main offense is outrunning opponents. This is why his builds are mainly focused on HP and Movespeed more than AP.
  3. Singed has 345 base Movespeed which means you are naturally faster than every single ranged champion.
  4. Singed's damaging abilities have the lowest cast range of any champion. poisontrail.png range is 20 and fling.png is 125.
  5. Singed lacks ranged damage. Don't get kited or you'll die in a stupid way.
  6. fling.png is a knock up. Help 157_64.png.
  7. 3102_32.png only blocks fling.png.
  8. Singed can sneak an Auto Attack while channeling fling.png. This is called a Sky Autoattack and it is important to use it, especially if you have 3742.png.
  9. Never run in a single direction. Try to spread your poisontrail.png as much as you can to slow down enemies for a long time.
  10. yasuoW.png doesn't do anything on you.
  11. For some reason megaadhesive.png doesn't constantly Ground enemies, unlike cassiopeiaw.png. So if an enemy removes its effect they won't be instantly affected again.
  12. A single poisontrail.png lasts for 3.25 seconds. The DoT damages four times every second. This means poison DoT ticks eight times after the initial damage in Summoner's Rift, but only four in other maps.
  13. You can deal up to 350+ %150 AP magic damage on Summoner's Rift with just 1 poison cloud. While other tank toplaners spend a lot of their resources for such damage, it only costs 13 mana for you.
  14. megaadhesive.png stops slowing enemies the moment they step out of it.
  15. 3151_32.png has insane synergy with Poison for it shreds 1% of enemies' max health every second they get damaged from it. This damage doubles if the enemy is movement impaired, for example from 3116.png passive, including AttackSpeed Reductions such as 3110_32.png aura. Plus you don't have to be the source of the CC for the increased damage.
  16. fling.png can throw people over walls. Save people (and yourself!) from jarvanivcataclysm.pngs. Additively, you can fling.png people through Base Walls, from either side.
  17. insanitypotion.png gives enough mana regen to keep poisontrail.png on and still regenerate mana on top of that at all ranks.
  18. Activating insanitypotion.png before hitting turrets will give you extra 7/14/21 magic damage per hit.
  19. The buffs after you increase the ult rank are not dynamic. If you are going to level to 11 or 16 right before an important teamfight activate your ult after you reach that level.
  20. The damage increase after you rank your Poison Cloud IS dynamic. You don't have to toggle it on and off after leveling up.
  21. Singed and Aatrox have roughly the same Base HP and HP growth per level.
  22. In URF Mode you can always have insanitypotion.png up.
  23. You can fling.png people while they are taking a bardE.png. You'll literally pull people away while they are inside a wall.
  24. No matter how fast you try/script, you can't cast megaadhesive.png to snare the Flung enemy while they are midair.
  25. Surfer Singed skin will make you take 1 less damage from Leona Passive. Every single skin with sunglasses do this.
  26. If you get Bard ulted your poison will still be applied in the area you are standing in.
  27. If a Tahm Devours you, you still get to poison people if it was on.
  28. poisontrail.png used to be hidden visually if the enemy couldn't see him. But 80_64.png20_64.png and 14_64.png can still channel their spells in bush while the enemy can't see the animation.
  29. poisontrail.png used to be coded as a minion so 121.png could not deal bonus isolation damage. Singed was secretly a Kha hard counter.

Why You Should Play Singed Back to Top

  1. Easy to play, easy to master. Just run around and use a point and click CC, don't let the whole "highest skill curve of all champions" thing scare you. Because if it did nobody would touch Yasuo.
  2. It's a tank so you'll be quite obnoxious to deal with.
  3. He is the first champion Riot ever designed, the Adam of LoL
  4. Singed will never ever get reworked, only get random buffs for no reason. If you quit this game for years and then decide to come back, Singed will still be there with [almost] nothing changed. 
  5. As champions get reworked some change completely and new guys are added, only Singed's playstyle remains as is. His passive is the biggest change he's had since 2009.
  6. You only have to know what the opponent champion is capable of to win lane. You have as much outplays as a Janna.  (did he just click E? POGGERS )
  7. It's always fun to receive praise from your teammates and curses from your enemies after an "outplay". They see it as an outplay, but you know you did absolutely nothing important.
  8. His level 1/2 cheeses are the deadliest in the game. Ends with wasted Flashes and death.
  9. Rare champion. Isn't meta often, if you don't count the beginning of Season 7. If you lose with a metadog on your team, remind them that their FOTM also contributed in that loss and that only 5 out of 10 people win.
  10. pisses off reddit and hashinshin

About Me Back to Top

Hello. I am a Singed main whose best role is Support.


It all started in a free week in August 2013 when I won a 1v1 against my friend's 8_64.png as 27_64.png. We were both first timers and I was surprised that 27_64.png had such weird spell ranges.
In that free week, I played 7 games in a row with a friend of mine. I picked 27_64.png and he picked 35_64.png. We won 7 games in a row.

Then I decided to actually main him since his playstyle was very unique. I am playing since Preseason 3, after Vi was released. And before playing Singed, I was a Viktor one trick and would go support every now and then.

27_64.png was Freelo to me. I quit playing almost every other champion, in both normals and ranked, and somehow I managed to get top everytime I called for it. In Season 4, I played roughly 150 ranked games just on Singed and won 100 of them. Also reached Platinum 5.

In season 5 I did not have much time to play, so I played 27_64.png for only 50 matches, won 37 of them. He still is my highest winrate champ to this day. 

On September 29th and October 29th 2015 I got ranked as the #1 27_64.png in TR by Lolskill. Two whole days! FeelsGoodMan
