“Try to keep up your farm and avoid his soldiers. You can afford to trade with him earlier but not as possible once he gets attack speed. Only all-in on jungle ganks.”
“Always take Dorans and resolve in this matchup because his poke is almost as bad as Xerath. You can use W to make the soldiers stop attacking you, which will make him either have to play close or just not be able to kill you. Save W for after an E engage as he will most likely try to trade back as you are running away. Hook him to bait his E, then go in with your E if possible, or just E through him to force him to go sideways to escape (Azir will hit you with his dash if you're in the way of his sentries). Very easy to execute and great trades if you start them. ”
“This matchup can be surprisingly hard if the azir player is good. Try to not get poked too hard by his sand soldiers early. You will be alot more useful than him when you can ult to sidelanes. ”
“Azir has the wave clear advantage. ||
Azir wins pre-3 ||
Azir wins pre-6 ||
Azir loses slightly post-6 ||
Azir scales much better than Annie. ||
TIP: Azir just outclasses you - so what makes this a rating of 4/5 not 5/5? Well it's simple - he may win the fights but he runs out of mana very quickly. All you have to do is thin the wave every time he shoves you in to reset and quickly bounce it back - reach level 6 and from there you one shot him. The issue is when he kills your entire team with his insane DPS (like an ADC). So make sure to deal with him for the rest of the game (poke him early because he runs out of mana quicker than you and then one-shot him from 6 onwards to the best of your ability. ”
“Range is nearly identical, Azir has more mobility making it easier for him to punish misplays.
If you ever burn flash, there's a high possibility of being Shurima'd into death multiple times.
Otherwise, your priority is playing to max range and avoiding trading outside of your E windows until you have a kill opportunity.
“Use fleet foot + resolve/domination secondary + Doran's shield. Play defensive first few levels and just let him push the wave. After you get tier 2 boots you can start looking for kills. What makes this match up easy is the fact that azir is very vulnerable to champions who can easily get past his soldiers and straight into him. His ultimate is also useless against yours because you are unstoppable, so his only reliable form of anti-engage post level 6 is gone. When looking for all-ins, try to bait out his E dash first. If he tries to trade with you, he will end up going OOM really fast because Azir is pretty mana hungry.”
“Bird man is not a very strong champion til he has some items, and he also needs to be piloted /extremely/ well to even be slightly useful. You can easily push him in early game and his mana costs are atrocious for early game poking. Once you get 6 if you know where the jungler is you can freely R in his face to try to land an E. If he doesn't take Cleanse enjoy the free gold.”
Take Triple Rejuv beads against Azir.
Spin between him and his tower and he won't be able to shuffle to safety.
“Corrupting + maybe a Doran if you struggle.
This matchup can be annoying but you are not necessarily going to feed, perhaps you might lose some CS but in general you shouldn't be completely destroyed. Azir wins the trades mostly after level 3 because of his annoying Q spam and soldiers auto attacks, so if you feel opressed just try to push and roam bot. In this matchup post 6 you have to be extremely careful for the insec dash ult combo that will certainly kill you if you don't have flash so absolutely do not fight him unless you have it up (or you know he has R CD). Heal could work good as a summoner spell in this matchup. Always stay away from CS as he will mostly put soldiers there to farm, so dodge his soldiers by not staying near your own CS. Soldier auto attacks will also trigger minions as far as I know so you can abuse that.
Push Early. Must have: Minion Dematerializer. Ganks shut him down heavily.”
“You can't really block any of his abilites. But he is weak early game. If you can CC him with Q while he's dashing with his E, you can lock his mobility for a long time and Kill him due to his low deffense and hp. (This dude rushes Nashor + Luden's, not HP+AP Items)”
