League of Legends Counters List

Ryze is also very good because the rune prison is very effective against Kennen’s dash.

Ezreal

Graves

Corki

Kog Maw is very strong late game. Because only one of her abilities does damage she is very vulnerable at the early stages of the game.

Counters

Yorick

Leblanc

Kassadin

Ryze

Yorick counters Kennen along with a list of other champions, but he is also countered by assassins like Leblanc and Kassadin. You can also shut down his invisibility with a pink ward or an oracles.

Twisted Fate

Kennen

Counters

Counters

Counters

Ryze

Mordekasier

Ryze is probably the best against Veigar because he does not have to use ability power to be effective. Champions that also do well are champions that are hard to burst down quickly like Mordekasier. Also poke comps can work well against poke comps to even the trades.

Cho Gath

Vlad

Cho is very good against Rumble because he can silence and the silence makes rumble really ineffective. Mf has a really good early game and if you can survive that you will be better late game.

Teemo

Irelia

Shen

Ignite

The best counters for Warwick are champions that can trade with him and champions that can deal with his poke.

Sona

Taric

The pros have said that Lulu is just a weaker version of Sona and I find this to be true. Draven is really good a poking someone down and using his speed buff to just catch up and finish the kill, stop this and you will beat him.

Amumu

Counters

Taric

Lee Sin

Cassiopeia

Mordekaiser

Pink wards

They key to beating Akali is picking champions that have a large amount of area of effect damage so they can do damage to her while she is in her stealth. Champions that can close gaps easily and champions that have a lot of kill potential can shut him down. The negative side to Kassadin is that he can be poked out of lane and denied very easily. They key to beating Teemo is to not let him poke you without doing damage back.

Draven

Counters

Counters

Janna

Soraka

Champions that can beat Zilean are champions that can shield or heal the poke he does with his bombs. Pulling a champ like Alistar is very bad and can cause harm if done. He basically excels at everything and is very hard to simply counter.

Leblanc

Brand

Ziggs

The best counter to Cass is champions that can either burst her down very quickly or champions that can poke from a distance without taking much damage. Olaf operates at very low health and is very hard to kill when he is low. Cass is very effective because she can deal enough damage to win trades against. Ziggs is very good against Cass.

LeBlanc

Counters

Ezreal

Alistar

Sona

Janna

They key to beating Nunu in lane is to have more poke than his iceballs can do. Vlad is also good because he can pool flame spitter and return a lot of the damage against him.

Yorick

Warwick

Zilean

Jayce

Tryndamere

Guardian Angels

Darius is countered by champions with high sustain and champions that can poke him. If you are able to burst Janna down before she becomes effective you win lane. Malphite is really tanky and can survive a lot of Riven’s damage so he very effective against her.

Mordekasier

Nidalee

Champions with good poke or tanking abilities are good against heimer. When his commits he is very vulnerable to counter damage.

Alistar

Lulu

Sona

Amumu

Blitzcrank has trouble with champions that are able to harass him and that are detrimental to pull. These champions also have silences which can interrupt a teleport.

Janna

Ziggs

Mordekaiser

Lee Sin

Lee just beats Vlad in 1v1 engagements are Mordekaiser can block a lot of the poke with his shield.

Miss Fortune

Fizz

Ignite

Executioners Calling

Mundo is countered by champions with healing buffs and anything that can make his massive healing and regeneration less effective.

Katarina

Sona

Corki

Ignite

When facing Taric you want to be able to do magic damage or true damage to break his massive amounts of armor.

Morgana

Olaf

Ezreal

Lee Sin

Pink Wards

Oracles

With the changes to stealth it is harder for eve to sneak up and get an advantage but champions like lee counter all stealth champions. Akali is a great counter because once she hits six Elise is unable to trade at all.

Counters

Graves

Galio

Gangplank

Vlad

Renekton is counter by champions that have ranged poke and can do damage to him from a distance. Champions that do well are champions that can cast a lot of abilities so the spell shield becomes less effective. You do not want to pick champions that have to get close to do damage. Sona does more poke damage and I like her ultimate better. Once Alistar gets his ultimate champions like Olaf and Irelia who do true damage are very effective at killing him. If you leave him alone he will wreak havoc on your team.

Graves

Corki

Vision Wards

Oracles

Champions that can trade with Twitch and one that can jump on him and kill him are the best. Ezreal is also good because his attack speed debuff balanced out Sivir’s ultimate.

Counters

Pantheon

Galio

Vision Wards

Oracles

Lee Sin

Galio seems strange as a counter, but Galio’s shield heals him over time which is really good against Talons Q. He is also counted by champions that can out sustain him. Varus has no escape and using this to your advance is the key to beating him.

Counters

Tristana

Fizz

Executioners Calling

Ignite

The best champions against Swain are the ones that can reduce his healing and that can play really aggressive before he hits six.

Leona

Counters

Garen

Sona

Taric

Alistar

Champions best against Soraka are champions that can commit to a fight and engage on her when her heal is damage. Lulu and Leona are great picks against him.

Blitzcrank

Counters

Veigar

Caitlyn

Urgot

Graves

Corki

Ezreal

Draven is basically countered by what I like to call “all in” champions that can close gaps really quickly and commit to fights. Her ult especially with ability power is the best counter to a Karthus ult along with a Soraka Heal. You can also put your bot lane mid and your mid lane bot and Kassadin will be useless.

Sona

Gangplank

Soraka

Counters

Anivia

Mordekaiser

Ryze

Cassiopeia

They key to beating Sion is either wait for his shield to go on cool down before you engage or to do enough damage to break through the shield and trade effectively.

. Yorick can sustain his damage and nocturne makes team fighting very difficult.

Malphite

Irelia

Olaf

Champions that can do a lot of damage and fight Wukong when he engages are the best counters.

Counters

Xerath

Xerath is very good because he can do damage from a distance and poke Zyra without taking a lot of damage.

Kassadin

Lebanc

Xerath is good at doing damage from ranged and if you can close the gap and burst him down you will win lane.

Yorick

Darius

Riven

Olaf

Lee sin got hit really hard by some of the recent nerfs making it very hard for him to win top lane vs these match ups. Janna can also farm at a distance and negate a lot of damage with her shield.

Warwick

Viktor

Darius

Swain

Counters

Kayle

Ryze

Mordekaiser

Fizz is countered by champions with high harass and tankiness. Champions that are able to burst her down quickly and maintain enough damage to kill the egg. Overall he is a good pick and hard to beat.

Kog Maw

Fizz

Counters

Nunu

Ezreal

Corki

Champions that fair well have been the ones that can kill Varus and trade with him effectively. Probably the strongest ad carry, but his weakness is that he has low mobility and no escape. Ezreal is good because of his attack speed debuff and Corki is good because of his true damage. His ult makes it easy to win trades and essentially win lane in the end. Wickd one of the best Irelia players, thinks that Renekton is quite possibly the best counter against Irelia.

Darius

Garen

Champions with very high damage ultimates like Garen and Darius are very effective against Olaf. The best counter to Karthus in my Opinion is AP Janna. How to get better at League of Legends and climb the ladder.

Tristana

Vayne

Counters

Kennen

Yorick

Kennen is very good vs malphite because you can auto attack his shield down and do damage without taking much in return. Gangplank can just parlay all day and win the lane. Olaf does true damage which is really effective against Shen. Zilean and Guardian Angles are very effective.

Darius

Garen

Singed is countered by champions that are effective at close ranged and deal a lot of damage. He is another “all in” champion that can be shut down rather easily.

Kassadin

Leblanc

Ap Janna

Kassadin is a great pick against Karthus but you have to shut him down early to make up for his great late game. Champs like Trynd and WW are great against him.

Pantheon

Kassadin

Janna

Fiddle cant deal with spamable cc that can stop his drain and ultimate. If you are playing against a kill lane play as passive as possible while maintaining even trades.

Sivir

Graves

When I though about champions that counter Ezreal the list is very short. Janna is one of the most effective champions and shutting his ult down and keeping him from getting out of control.

Graves

Taric

Sona

Kill lanes are probably the best counter to Janna in lane. Darius is a strong pick because he can interrupt the Shen ult and win trades.

Kennen

Darius

Yorick

Teemo does not have the best laning phase in the game and these champions have the potential to just destroy him. Malz is good as well because if you ult after she uses hers then you essentially win.

Varus

Nidalee

Kassadin

Lebanc

The best champions against Ziggs are ones that can kill him or champions that offer just as much poke as he does.

Janna is great because she can stop her rocket jump with a tornado or monsoon. Gangplank is a safer pick because he can farm at a distance but these match ups can be very difficult.

The best counters to Yorick are champions with shields because they can deal with a lot of his damage and engage on him when his moves are on cool down.

Alistar

Ahri

Teemo

Karthus

Malphite

Udyr

Riven is countered by champions that are not bursted quickly and can trade damage against her well. When playing Lulu vs Taric the poke seems to do not enough damage for his sustain and his utility is just better.

Counters

Talon

Riven

Kassadin

Assassins are great at killing Anivia in lane. Kennen is a menace if he uses his auto attacks correctly.

Ashe

Ezreal

Lulu

Thresh is countered by early game poke and aggression. Ignite is also very good in killing him while he is in his ult.

Graves

Urgot is very hard to counter but the way to beat him is do dodge his Acid Hunter and engage on him during the right times.

Pantheon

Renekton

Counters

Akali

Cho Gath

Yorick

All you have to do to beat Elise is counter her early game aggression and poke. Hard engages like Malphite ult of Amumu are very good vs poke comps because you can force a fight. These champions just provide more and do more damage.

Xerath

Ezreal

Corki

Graves is not an easy champion to counter and is good in most situations. Graves a safer pick and hard to strait up counter.

Kassadin

Leblanc

Yorick

Nocturne

Champions that can silence Brand are very hard to play against. This really limits pulls and reduces effectiveness.

Sona

Ezreal

Corki

Sona is really good against Sivir because her power cord cannot be blocked by Sivir’s spell shield. Pantheon is very good because he can harass and close the gap and kill.

Gragas

Dr. Jarvan has kind of fell out of favor recently because other top laners are just tankier and have more utility. They key is to poke him down to where he gets low and then commit for the kill.

Graves

Ezreal

Not many champions counter Corki because he is so versatile These champions merely do well against him. Graves is also good because if Trist jumps on Graves he can just turn on her.

Lulu

Counters

Graves

Ezreal

Corki

Ashe has trouble dealing with “all in” champions that can commit heavily to the battle. At early levels there is just not enough sustain to deal with ranged poke.

Blitzcrank

Ezreal

Graves

The best champions against Sona are champions that can either tank her poke or champions that can go all in and engage on her.

Fiddlesticks

Leblanc

Kassadin

Yorick

They key to beating Ahri is picking a champ that can either sustain her poke, or burst her down quickly to limit her mobility.

Cassiopeia

Annie

Leblanc

Ryze is countered by champions that can either out range him or that can do more sustain damage then him. He is also countered by champions that can make his ultimate less effective. If Nunu uses those spells on you then he runs out of mana very quickly and if you can negate the damage with something like a Janna shield or a Sona heal it is very easy to win lane. Morgana has very long cool downs and if you make her abilities less efffective it is really easy to just commit to the fight and kill her.

Kassadin

Leblanc

Annie is countered by champions that can burst her down quickly and that have silences that she simply cannot deal with. Since Fizz is melee it limits his options and if you can harass him low enough then he can commit and do what he does best which is to assassinate.

Counters

Vlad

Ryze

Cassiopeia

The best champions are champions that can tank Viktors damage and kill him. Poppy’s passive reduces a lot of damage and gives her armor so if you have true damage to burst her down then you will win lane.

Counters

Alistar

Lulu

Sona

The way to win against Leona is to play really agressive before she gets her combo or when it is on cooldown. Pink wards and oracles are also very good.

Mordekaiser

Vlad

Mordekaiser is extremely effective vs Pantheon because Panteons passive does not work against Mordekaisers Q. Leblanc is only good against Ryze if she can win early and deny him farm.

Ahri

Talon

Ahri is very effective against Morgana because she can dash away from her soul shackles with her ult. He relies on bursting quickly and champs that can get in quick and kill him are nearly impossible to play against. Without her cc she is basically a sitting duck and is useless. Irelia

Olaf

Ignite

Poppy is countered by champions that can do true damage. Yorick can just sustain the harass of the parlay and so can Malphite with help from his passive. Also doing a lot of magic damage is good as well so the armor buff on her heal is less effective.

Tyrndamere

Vlad

Yorick

Malphite

Champions that are very tanky or have a lot of sustain are very good against gangplank. Most tops fair well against him but like any champions play style contributes greatly to success.

Yorick

Kennen

Vlad

Kayle does not fair well against champions that can farm from a distance and that can out poke her. Pantheon is also good because he can block an ability and poke.

Gangplank

Kennen

Vlad

Champions that can poke from a distance are the best counters. Malphite vs Jax is a very easy lane and is terrifying against Jax.

Kassadin

Yorick

Kassadin passive is great against burst casters cause it makes it very difficult to 1 shot. If Annie cant cast abilities she becomes far less effective.

Jax

Counters

Counters

Twitch

Kassadin

Leblanc

Champions that can assassinate TF are the best counters. Also, watch for him taking wraiths and try to set up ganks to kill him there.

Xin Zhao

Ryze

Orianna is very hard to counter because she can face many match ups with little disadvantages. Kassadin wins every trade with Leblanc and Yorick can outsustain the damage she has while he is also kind of tanky.

Pantheon

AD carry mid meta

Corki

Galio is countered by champions that do attack damage because champions that do magic are less effective against his passive. Picking someone ranged is smart so she cannot push you out of lane and own you.

Yorick

Warwick

Champions that have good sustain and champions that can win all out engagements are good vs Garen. Your best bet are champions that can deal from further away.

Ryze

Leblanc

Ryze can take her damage and Leblanc can close the gap to kill her, those are they keys to beating Lux and if you can do this you will be successful.

Irelia

Yorick

Malphite

Xin is a very aggressive champion but you can use this to take advantage of him. This makes Veigar’s ultimate less effective.

Sona

Lulu

Irelia

Olaf

Ignite

Alistar is countered by champions that can poke him early and lane and deny him his early aggression. Buy pink wards when facing Akali and drop one when she goes into stealth.

Malphite

Darius

Yorick

Malphite is the best counter to Jax because he just cant do anything against the tankiness that Malphite has and his attack speed debuff. This allows Morde to spam his e and negate the poke from Pantheons spear.

Counters

Counters

Singed

Counters

Lee Sin

Sion

Cho Gath

Malzahar

Katarina is countered by Cho gath because he has 2 inter ups for her ult as well as the ability to sustain any poke that Kat can do. If you capitalize on this she is very easy to beat.

Elise

Counters

Cassiopeia

Heimerdinger

Graves

Corki

Vanye does not have a lot of abilities that do damage which makes her early game rough and champions with good early games and lots of ability based damage are really effective in shutting her down and from becoming a late game monster.

Counters

Counters

Jarvan

Counters

Darius

Yorick

Renekton

Darius is a really great pick against Irelia. Janna works well with kite comps as well, so expect this when Janna is picked. They key to beating Singed is to either 1v1 him or be able to poke him out of lane.

Varus

Ashe

Ezreal

Champions that are good against Cait are champions that can out range her and avoid a lot of her long range harass. Yorick is really good against him because of the sustain damage and healing.

Counters

Talon

Yorick

Counters

Akali

Cassiopeia

Malzahar

Morde is very hard to counter and the best way to win lane against him is by either breaking his shield or doing your damage before he has a chance to charge it up. Also, Ezreals attack speed debuff is a counter to the Bloodboil.

Counters

Darius

Olaf

Shen is extremely hard to counter in lane because he can farm from a distance and is very tanky. Varus was actually very effective vs Caitlyn and I consider him to be one of her top counters.

Darius

Yorick

Jarvan is basically countered by anyone that can out sustain him or out damage him. If you shut down Amumu early he will be less effective late game and easy to handle. Gangplank is very good because he can parlay him down from a distance and slow him if he comes in to do damage.

Counters

Riven

Lux

Thresh

Zyra

Yorick

Riven

Udyr

Jayce fairs well in most situations making him somewhat hard to counters. Mundo

Miss Fortune is countered by champions that can handle her early game and scale better into late game. She has low armor so Ad casters work very well.

Champions that do well against Amumu are champions that can disrupt his jungle and kill him while he is in his jungle. Overall she has a very good skill set and is really difficult to strait up counter.

Switching Mid Lane and Bottom Lane

The best counters to Kassadin are AD type casters that can make his passive useless and win 1v1 engagements. Lee Sin works really well cause he can reveal her in stealth. Champions like Darius can just ult him down and essentially make his biggest advantage useless.

Rumble

Corki

Kassadin

Mordekasier

Mordekaiser

Morde is the best counter because he is rather tanky and just gives Gragas a hard time in lane.

Evelynn
