“This matchup is usually very easy, you should get an early merc treads in this matchup as they're very strong against Cho, I usually go cleaver and death's dance as my first two big items here and once you get them he just doesn't have the damage to keep up, between conqurer and your passive leg procs it's just too much damage/healing for him, make sure you're trying your best to get your passive leg procs in this matchup as well as trying your best to dodge his Q which should be easy most of the time. I also usually hard push cho'gath in early game since his sustain is fairly high I don't bother trading very much I just play for a CS lead to get my core items quicker, obviously be careful with this and it is dependent on who the enemy jungler is playing.”
“Even: This lane favours you but the enemy still has kill pressure on you.
More information found below.”
“While fighting or simply laning, you should always be positioning yourself away from his angle to avoid his spikes that slow you. The second you let him line up a spike-slow, you will be swiftly met with your death through his knock up and more often if he is running Glacial Augment. He is a high HP and sustain stacking champion through killing minions, so preventing his sustain makes killing him easier. If he misses the knock up and can't land a slow, you can simply run him down with auto attacks and burst from your (Q). Be aware if he is running Glacial as it is a huge threat and you really need to play well.
“When facing Cho'Gath in lane, pay attention to his position when he uses Vorpal Spikes. Don't get hit by the spikes to avoid the slow and if he fights you with them make sure to dodge the damage with your Counter Strike. Key here is to dodge his Rupture and just all in him after that since he loses to you after that unless you are miles behind him (which shouldn't happen). Just be careful if you are low HP as he can quickly delete you with his Feast. Overall one of the easier matchups for Jax.”
“Easy lane at the early stage if you can escape his Rupture. But eventually he outscales you. So farm up and roam.”
“Cho has abusable cooldowns early and is fairly squishy, if you zone him away from farm to deny his passive you can get early kills easily. Just remember he becomes a monster later on.”
“TL;DR - EASY LANE. DODGE KNOCK UPS. FREE AFTER LEVEL 3. CONQUEROR SORCERY. PHASE RUSH IF YOU CAN'T DODGE KNOCK UP. BE CAREFUL LOW HP.
Cho’Gath is a somewhat annoying champion to deal with. The only thing you have to know in this lane is how to dodge his knock up. His knock up ruins your all ins as it slows you after and it allows him to combo you and walk away since you will be silenced. His level 1 cheese might be surprising at times with his e if he has ignite as well. You also have to make sure to HARD win trades because he will be able to sustain back with CS. This is another lane where you have to use great wave control. Cho'Gath can oneshot you with 1 combo if you are low HP and it is post 6 so be careful when trading with im. ALWAYS LAND YOUR Qs. If you aren’t careful, you might keep trading with him and then he would just heal it all back up because of his passive, leaving you in a position where he can take you out before you can react. If he builds AP, his cheesing ability will be stronger as he just completely chunks you out at range when you let him knock you up. But this also means that you kill him with 1 combo so if you just dodge the knock up of an AP Cho'Gath, hes a free kill. If he is building tank, it is just a free lane. But he miiight get to a point where he is too tanky to kill quickly.
Just don’t die in stupid ways, don’t let him knock you up and most importantly, don’t let him farm. Taking ghost makes this lane so much easier as it lets you very easily dodge the knock up. Not to mention how Cho’Gath is very immobile so if he steps out of line, you can just Ghost and run him down. Just be careful when diving him as Cho’gath is great at defending dives. His gank set up is completely dependent on whether he lands his knock up or not. To be honest that is just his entire laning phase. If he can land those, he can go even with you. If he misses them, he is free food. It might be a good idea to ward up some of the brushes or at the very least stop him from going in them because if you have no vision of him, you cannot see him do the Rupture animation which makes dodging very difficult.
After level 3 or so, he should never be able to beat you. He does scale up to be a monster giga lategame in a sense that trying to kill him, is a massive waste of time as it takes too long. Just stack 5 off of him and then murder the enemy team.”
“Cho'gath is a little annoying but he's not too hard to deal with. Bait his W and Q then use your E and Q while popping your W. If he misses his W and/or Q you should win the trade. Never use your Q right in front of him or he will cancel with his W or Q. Rush Abyssal Mask, any rune page or ability max will work here.”
“Q is easy to dodge and his W doesn't stop your Q toggle. Meme champ into Singed, just don't get R'd whilst trolling under tower.”
“He has no way of dodging your Qs or Ws. Don't let him sustain and dodge his Qs. While he becomes incredibly tanky and disruptive later on, you can always catch him out. Be aware of your cooldowns while silenced and buffer your abilities so your Q doesn't run out.”
