“Aatrox is overpowered right now which makes the matchup more difficult.
Make sure to have good movement to dodge his Q's, sometimes requiring you to walk FORWARD instead of backward to dodge the sweet spot.
Hitting W is essential as his ultimate gives him a lot of movement speed to match your ghost.”
“Champ is cancer broken.
Dblade start,go chainsword 1st item or bork if you re ahead.
Try to hard trade with him early,
your cds are much lower than his.
if he trades with you lvl 1 - he loses wavecontrol.
Go into lane bush, closest to him, lvl 1 and fight him if he facechecks, u hard win and u can setup flash red w ignite auto q kill lvl 2
After he gets dirk tabi dont fight him, unless you can oneshot him (bcs hes fucking thanos at dirk tabi)
“This is a fun matchup. We get 2 dashes, he gets 1. Take conq and rush bramble. At level 6 if you have full bramble the all in should be majorly in your favor. If he gets an early kill on you this lane will be very rough. look to use E1 to get out of his W chain and E2 to dodge his Q3. Don't be afraid to use E2 with fury when trading with him, Aatrox has a high amount of base armor and is likely rushing steelcaps.”
“Should be even, but Aatrox is super overtuned right now. He pokes you until he can all in you easily. Take Doran's Shield + Second wind and survive lane. ”
“(Top) Play Fleet to dodge easier his Qs and having good sustain. Go assassin. Killing him should be your priority, or he will poke you constantly until you'll die.”
“Always try to dodge the 1 and 2 Q, and use your W only on the third, thus opening up the possibility of winning”
“You always want ignite beacuse it cuts off a lot of his main power (healing), zone him with your barrels, and buy boots fast beacuse movement speed is key in this matchup as you need to dodge his sweetspots and be able to leave W cage. His cds are very long early so abuse it, your passive works very similar to his, if u know he used it on minions you can walk up and trade with yours. If youre not ahead avoid going too far from your tower if you know he has ult beacuse he can easily chase you down, His autos are pretty slow so its hard for him to auto your barrel, but he can do it with dash and aa reset so be aware of that. Level 7 is your powerspike. You outscale him”
“(d blade, flash/ignite, bone plating/unflinching)
this is a yone-favored match up majority of the time. if the aatrox is good, he will be able to keep up with your trades, so try to mix it up a bit. dont always engage a trade with e + q3. time his cd's so he has nothing but aa's to react with. if he burns his ult and he is below 40% hp, ignite him and fight him. otherwise, accept the trade and go back to freezing/shoving. rush executioner's”
“Wins long and short trades and has more range. You can try to get a lead lvl 1 but it's very hard. Recommend TP and play for Ults since Aatrox scaling isn't that good. Early Bramble if you want to fight him. W Blocks his passive auto, only go for short trades unless you are sure you can kill him.”
“easy in low elo, gets harder in higher. Aatrox favored
poke him with q while dodging his q's. when he e's early game, you can look to punish him since it is high cd.
go executioners and hp item components”
