Tips Against Cho'Gath in Top Lane Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors
ogilabadabahamdala says “He can outscale you but not a big amount. Early you will beat him”
alexionut05 says “Relatively tough matchup. He will always have more range than you. You should try to poke him with Grasp-Passive as much as you can, also Q when he is getting close. Dashing into him might be a death sentence if he plays correctly, always beware of his ult!”
gazibulle says “Easy matchup. You both scale in your own ways, but I don't see a world Camille loses against Cho'Gath on side, as long as you have Divine. Early levels you can abuse the poor guy, but don't overextend too much as his 3 Es and his minion wave will outtrade you. The key to this matchup is to sidestep his Q with your Q mov. speed. You can bait his Q by Eing on a wall and waiting a bit, Cho'Gaths will Q themselves 90% of the time. Try not to get poked too much by his E through minions. Always go for long trades as Cho's passive will regen all the damage you do to him in a short trade. Keep in mind Cho'Gath can't silence your Q2 before lvl 12-13, as his W has 1.8s duration and yours is roughly 2s. Be careful when Cho is lvl 6, don't be around him with 50% hp (~350 true dmg). If you ever see him crunch a minion, you can try to kill him if you have enough damage: proceed to R his W silence and sidestep is Q with your Q mov.speed, just keep your W in case he flees so you can chase him down.”
Cryniu says “Juega medianamente agresivo al inicio.
Comprar hábito del espectro y/o botas mercurio son grandes opciones.
Prioriza tener tenacidad, tiene mucho control de masas.
Usa tu W para anular los clavos de su E.
Cuidado al usar tu R, él tiene dos habilidades para cancelarla.
Que no te cancele tu E con su Q.”
Kocykek says “Early on he outdamages you hard but you outscale him easily. Dodge his Q's in laning phase and don't fight with him that often. You can understimate him and he will make you suffer for it. Don't fight him that much until Divine.”
OliveeGarden says “Sett's dream matchup, you kinda just win this lane care him eating you past 6 but apart from that the only advice i can say if stand away from your minion wave so he is forced to use Q on you or the minions, not both.”
GG Cannon says “His silence and Rupture can be very dangerous for you. As long as you win laning fase, you can come out on top almost the whole game, but if he wins laning fase, the game is gonna be a lot harder.”
Potent213 says “Really easy matchup you win most type of trades, he has very easy to parry abilities, though you need a good bit of tenacity (so double tenacity rune page can be good here) to parry silence into knockup, you win them anyway.
Pull in waves, look to freeze and run him down, he lacks so much mobility and is an HP Tank, basically a dream come true for Fiora.
Just be wary of getting kited with his slow on spikes, he can kite vitals and be a menace if he gets a lead into bramble vest due to being too tanky.”
Mushroomuwu says “He is super squishy early on so you can start Q and look to build your passive and fight him early. You can also avoid all of his abilities with your Q granted you have minions around you. The only way you really lose is if you get hit by everything and he has minion advantages. Its also risky after 6 if you misstep as he can easily chase you down due to your low base movement speed and kill you. Fight with full passive and land your R and E, use minions to avoid his skill shots and you will win. Be careful of the jungler, it's the only way you really lose this lane.”
Your Desired Username says “Easy tank match-up. Rush mercs. Keep trades short pre-3. You beat him in all-ins and short trades level 3 and onward. Level 6 you beat him hard but if you ult him at full life he can just stall with q and w and he will most likely get away, so ult him after a short trade when he has 70% hp AT MOST or you likely won't kill him. A good tip is to look for his Q animation, where he stomps the ground, and ult him exactly then. This will guarantee his Q to stay outside Brazil and you essentially wasted 0.75 seconds of his time. Ulting him in team fights is very recommended as the champion itself is such a menace and can zone so well simply with his presence, no matter how behind he is. He's also pretty easy to kill in ult. You kinda outscale him for this reason, not if you don't ult him though.”
boboderaffe says “There are different ways to play against cho gath.
Definitely always get full boots ASAP to dodge his Q‘s.
You can go „Perma Freeze“ or „Normie“ but I’d even prefer „Conqueror is not enough“, simply because he has to chunk you down enough to eat you. Simply sustain yourself to victory. Demonic embrace is a MUST if you choose to go with Riftmaker.
BreadedBreadCrum says “If you're good at dodging his E, Cho'Gath can be an easy target for Braum to take out. Your E should block his R if you time it right. His mixed damage makes your W quite good. Your poke is faster and higher damage than his unless its AP cho. Only problem is how much he scales. He will always catch up to you. Go Lethal Tempo or HoB. Go Divine, BoRK, or Frostfire.”
Black Demon Ezel says “Cho'Gath can bite through your maiden with his ult but once it gets tough enough, it can outlast more than a few hits. Don't waste your ult (maiden) and you'll be fine and also baby cage him with your W and you can spam abilities on him since he has no mobility”
Rayli36 says “Ok so his E deals % of your maximum health as a magic damage + Watch out for his q and that's all. Do not engage when he has r or you have less than 700-900hp.You can buy Hexdrinker or Spectral's claw against him.
Take MR in defensive runes
Atomragnar says “Easy. You outdamage him from the start of the game. Dodge his Q, freeze wave and run him down. He can only be a threat if he goes full ap.
But early game you can 1v1 him when ever you want basically. ”
Dekar173 says “Early: 3
Remember to 4W + W his burst if you're getting ganked, and prioritize removing the silence + slow from E. Slow from Q can't really be removed since you're knocked up and that won't cleanse for you to do anything else, unless you flash.
Bork counters him hard BUT isn't the best for Rengar's kit unfortunately. In general, you won't be dueling him but abusing wave clear and roaming vs Cho match-up.”
LunaticDancer says “Gambler viable, D Shield. Good old "don't get hit" is the play here. Being a tank shredder, you obliterate him post 6. If you hit an E, all in him to prevent him from killing your ghouls (which gives him free sustain). Don't ever be low HP near him. Edge of Night is great against him.
Anti-heal is a decent idea.”
COJA says “Cho'gath's Silence and Knockup work very well into you, as your cast times are so long. Try to stay in medium range and dodge his Q, but out of melee range to not get hit by his E. If you manage to dodge his Q and move close to him, he is very immobile and you can punish him easily. Tank Cho'gath is a minor threat, while AP Cho'gath is a major one. ”
Eduardocwalle says “Muramana build is not the best one vs heavy tanks that stacks a lot of HP, becuase u dont have sunderer, but u will win anyways vs chogath. Just let him waste mana and later all in, u can dpdge his R with yours so just time it properly.”
Black Demon Ezel says “Most tanks are a problem for Morde and this one especially is. You try to fight and he does enough damage to eat you alive. You try to hit from range and he kites you endlessly. Try to avoid this matchup as I haven't found a winning build to fight the Terror of the Void”
King Turtle says “the only thing troublesome about cho gath is his ultimate. A lot of the trades and skirmishes top lane are going to be close fights since you're going to be on top of the enemy laner the entire time. Since this is the case, there's a good chance you're going to get caught by cho gath R once or twice. ”
ToothlessKnight says “This is a fairly boring farm lane for both Cho and Urgot. Cho will typically outscale Urgot when it comes to teamfighting because of the amount of utility that Cho's kid provides a team. This is a lane where you should shove and force him under turret then look for tp plays or roam with your jungler or to the mid lane. He has very little kill pressure in a 1v1 situation.”
MrZoltannn says “Chogath is a moderately hard matchup, his q can dmg you well so look out for that.
His W is your death if you get ganked be prepared for that.
Pre lvl 6 is easy, you can go Ignite and just kill him.
lvl 6 and after you mini gnar W is your best friend, with its max health based dmg.”
_WhiteSnow_ says “Matchup is much easier w/ divine sunderer.
His abilities are slow and easy to avoid. avoid fighting him when his e is active or up whenever possible so he can't land q
He's immobile and easy to stick to if you dodge his q and play around his e.
After 6, always be aware of his R cd.”
I Am Goliath says “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.”
Anoying bro5 says “Be careful of Cho silencing you before knocking you up. If he does this, try not to parry the knock up but use it on his ult or silence in general. This isn't that hard of a match up if you work around both of those abilities. He has high sustain and tankiness as he scales. Try to fight him lvl2. Pre 6 he is fairly easy to kill.”
Stinkee says “Cho'gath is a little annoying and is a fairly difficult matchup for Sion. 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 magic resist, any rune page or ability max will work here.”
Sovereign Kitten says “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.
BoilTheOil says “Take Conqueror. He can be hard to kill in lane, but luckily you don't need to kill him, just outfarm and outscale him. Like Sion, he's a massive meat bomb so you can just ult him and kill the entire enemy team. If you ever fight him after level 6 make sure you W his ult.”
Phrxshn says “This can be either a easy or hard-match up if you cannot dodge his skillshot. Juke out his Rupture(Q) and Feral Scream(W). Avoid fighting Cho'gath if you are low health as his Feast(R) can execute you. (Recommended Items: Demonic Embrace, Rylai's Scepter) (Sustained 1v1 Trades: Singed or Cho'gath if he lands everything) (Outscaling Edge: Cho'gath)”
LiL Bunnie FuFuu says “AP Cho'Gath is extremely painful to lane against. His Q can be hard to dodge and does a ton of damage. Thresh has no mr scaling and this lane will force you to stack it. He can poke you out of lane and you can never 1v1 him.”
The_Unf0rgiv3n says “Chogath is not really a hard lane unless you get hard camped. Try to avoid getting slowed by his autos with the spikes activated and trade often with him after he uses that ability. BORK > Rageblade is the way to go vs this one.”
Amphawn says “Don't trade early, and don't get hit by his Q. Cho's base damage early game is nuts. Also be careful of not standing directly behind your minions as he can use his E to slow you and guarantee a Q. If he slows, make sure to W and dodge the Q. Might want to start corrupting pots for better sustain. Keep in mind that Cho has an animation while he Q's so it is easy to predict. Remember that his ult is an execute, so your health is never as high as it may seem. Don't ever risk it when you're in execute range as he can simply hit a Q or flash on you and you're dead. You may want to buy magic resist early on or even buy MR boots for the tenacity as well. This is a matchup where you strictly have to play for the late game as you do scale better as long as he doesn't get a bunch of free stacks early on.”
PH45 says “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. ”
At_Tar_Ras says “in lane he's a minor threat. he's squishy and you have too much in your kit to actually get hit by his attacks. also BORK eats him alive. outside of lane? when he starts scaling? yea, he's a problem. hope your ADC has LDR otherwise it'll be a tough game :D you can obviously kill him before BORK too.”
jpaul2077 says “Against chogath, it's very important to keep moving in lane to avoid being hit by his Q, rupture. Chogath is fairly squishy at the early stages of the game. Look to go for a all in either after level 2 with Auto E Auto Q ignite or when you hit 6 with ulti. Chogath will eventually outscale you as a champion so it's important to develop a lead early.”
iZeal says “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.”
SunFalk says “He his a tank. He has a AOE stun. He has a execute. - To lane against a Cho'Gath, you'll need to deny his CS early in the game before he reach level 6 and start eat and become very tanky. When he is level 6, be careful and don't let you be eaten by him.”
slogdog says “Cho Gath is a pretty rough matchup, as you have to go for a very rough all in to kill him, as you cannot poke him, because he can sustain off the ghouls with his passive. He can also R your maiden, so don't just randomly throw it out, as he will take a free snack. Just play and look around for opportunities with your jungler.”
Phrxshn says “This can be either a easy or hard-match up if you cannot dodge his skillshot. Juke out his Rupture(Q) and Feral Scream(W). Avoid fighting Cho'gath if you are low health as his Feast(R) can execute you. (Recommended Items: Spirit Visage) (Sustained 1v1 Trades: Dr.Mundo or Cho'gath if he lands everything) (Outscaling Edge: Even)”
MagicallyDelish4 says “Try to get lane prio with a slow push. You're able to level one all in away from his minion wave. Use E and Qs to dodge W and Q. At level 6 you can all in around 60% hp if you're even with items and level. Step away from cs if he's using E. ”
Justkb says “You can abuse Cho if he uses his Q too frequently within the wave. Once you have a freeze it is really easy to run him down with a Flash E, W, AA Q to then finish him off near his tower. This has a high success rate when Cho is at about 60% HP.”
P1Legend says “So early game this matchup is easy, but at some point in the game, he just becomes too tanky to kill. So fight him early and power farm late and you should be fine. Don't get too excited about kills in lane or you will get silenced and nommed for half your HP”
Phrxshn says “This can be either a easy or hard-match up if you cannot dodge his skillshot. Juke out his Rupture(Q) and Feral Scream(W). Avoid fighting Cho'gath if you are low health as his Feast(R) can execute you. (Recommended Items: Blade of the Ruined King) (Sustained 1v1 Trades: Trundle or Cho'gath if he lands everything) (Outscaling Edge: Even)”
Fan22 says “Cho' gath its a tank like you and deals magic damage, however what makes him a deadly threat for you its the big True damague in his ultimate and also he has good poke and better sustain than you.
Going corrupting pot. let's you stay in lane as long as he.
Going mercs helps tor educe his damage and CC, making it a really good option in early game.
Sunfire aegis + demonic embrace works really well agaisnt him since Cho its really durable, and maokai its also good especially in long fights, also demonic deals a % of Chos Health.
try to not let him farm for free so he doesnt sustain so much. Remember his Q has high mana cost. ”
Phrxshn says “This can be either a easy or hard-match up if you cannot dodge his skillshot. Juke out his Rupture(Q) and Feral Scream(W). Avoid fighting Cho'gath if you are low health as his Feast(R) can execute you. (Recommended Items: Abyssal Mask) (Sustained 1v1 Trades: Even or Cho'gath if he lands everything) (Outscaling Edge: Even)”
Autolykus says “Abuse him before he backs for a bramble. If you have not killed him before then just go chemtank and play for teamfights. His stacks allow you to have some of the biggest ultimates of any champ.”
PandoraPanda14 says “Cho'Gath can't really fight a Darius early on unless he's getting a gank. Be careful of his all-in at level 6. If you don't get hit by his Q, he can't really all-in you. Tank Cho is a bit of a pain to kill, but he shouldn't be able to kill you. Be careful of full ap-cho'gath all-in though.”
Sporkintahn says “Fairly easy lane.--- He can't fight you early, avoid his Q's and Kite away from his E procs where he has to Auto you.---Once he reaches 6 he becomes dangerous as his ult is an execute like yours that deals a large amount of flat true damage. So do not get below half hp around him if you aren't actively trying to all in him.--- Should be an easy lane but he does scale very well into the late game and can get very tanky. --- A Cleaver wouldn't be a bad option against him if you're struggling and he's stacking armor.”
Phrxshn says “This can be either a easy or hard-match up if you cannot dodge his skillshot. Juke out his Rupture(Q) and Feral Scream(W). Avoid fighting Cho'gath if you are low health as his Feast(R) can execute you. (Recommended Items: Blade of the Ruined King) (Sustained 1v1 Trades: Warwick or Cho'gath if he lands everything) (Outscaling Edge: Even)”
PanthrickTV says “Good Matchup.
(1) Spam your Q's at lane. (some poke)
(2) Play smart and exploit her mistakes.
(3) When he misses his Q and W go for the all in.
(4) Since he buy some items you can' t really kill him. Show the lane and roam.
(5) I recommend Teleport here when you want to roam a lot, but if you want to kill him early take Ignite.”
Kacto15 says “Esquívale su Q, y cárgale la tuya en su cara, cuando veas que canaliza la animación de su W sueltas tu Q, puedes ir sion Tanque y agruparte con tu equipo, no lo outscaleas porque el escala vida igual pero revientas a su equipo”
Phrxshn says “This can be either a easy or hard-match up if you cannot dodge his skillshot. Juke out his Rupture(Q) and Feral Scream(W). Avoid fighting Cho'gath if you are low health as his Feast(R) can execute you. (Recommended Items: Blade of the Ruined King) (Sustained 1v1 Trades: Sett or Cho'gath if he lands everything) (Outscaling Edge: Cho'gath)”
montybucket says “Chogath vs mordekaiser is a free lane. He can't do any damage to you and will never kill you while you can easily out damage and kill him. This can change late game but the game is generally decided by then. My tip is to abuse him in lane hard. And then take a side lane since he can't stop you by himself. ”
TroviStyle says “[Conqueror] The threat of your W is your best friend in this matchup. You can Q + W into his Q to get a stun on him, but a good Cho will just silence you and poke with his W. If u get into a trade you win usually, just make sure not to get poked early on. Once he has bramble and steelcaps you cant kill him no more.”
SilverAvalanche says “Free lane, free game. Kayn is great against tanks since it is a free scaling lane.
just make sure to walk around a lot as you are attacking him and save your E when you are fighting him since you can use it when he stomps the ground so you can dodge his knock up easily.”
pokeyminch5236 says “Cho'Gath is really not much of a problem. His Q's are easy to predict and dodge and his silence doesn't do too much since you are more auto attack based than ability based. Save your shield for when you start getting near the ult threshold”
MCSwavest says “Cho'gath's whole game plan revolves around voring you at half health, but there is a critical flaw in his plan - shields. Who builds a shit ton of shields? Grasp Akshan top. Dodge the Q and you'll be fine.”
Drake6401 says “Most of the time, you expect to see a Q max and start Cho'Gath. These are standard cases of dodge his poke and all in. Recently since this new season, good Cho'Gath players are starting E first and maxing it and go Grasp instead of Comet. It actually does a WILD amount of damage, hammering you with the first two hits and kiting back with the third if you chase them. This will leave you half HP if not lower. By landing his E-W then Q, it's almost impossible to dodge the full combo of this guy. Never fight him if you're low because his ult is a click move and cannot be evaded. ”
Rhoku says “TL;DR - EASY LANE. DODGE KNOCK UPS. FREE AFTER LEVEL 3. CONQUEROR SORCERY. 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.”
The Rock Titan says “"[Grasp, Corrupting Potion, W > Q] - If possible, don't leash for your jungler... you need lvl1 prio in this lane, you need to gets to the minion and start charging Grasp first! - Start E lvl1, and trade Grasp autos with him - He's annoying but you can try to kill him if he makes a mistake
- He can't really kill you too consistantly but he will if you give him the chance to
- Dodge his knock up, fairly easy to dodge
- Early game, Try to get grasp procs While not taking too much damage yourself
- Once he gets some HP and MR..., you just want to farm and get out of lane phase fast. You won't be able to do anything against him anymore
- If the Cho is bad at farming early on, you can actually win the lane"”
Amvill says “Dodge the Q or dodge the lane. Easy right? As tempting as it is to buy the Merc Treads against the CC Tanks, its not worth so don't do it. Just buy Swiftness boots and try to dodge his abilities.”
Rhoku says “Cho'Gath CAN be problematic but is mostly free food for Mordekaiser. You Liandry Rylai combo works extremely well against him, your ult does wonders as he is just a big ball of stats for you to steal from, and in lane, all he can even do into you is sit in bush, hit his abilities and cheese a kill or two which wont even help. Just dodge the knock up and a pull should equal a kill every time.”
FeedLaneGetCaryd says “(Conditioning+Magic Resist+DBlade) Cho'Gath first level's are really weak, but later he'll buy Brable Vest+Steelcaps kile any other tank, and you won't be able to kill him before your items. You are much more stronger in mid game than him.”
PK Noob says “Trading with Cho'Gath in lane is nearly impossible with his silence (W), and knock up (Q). If you walk up he will do his W, Q, then walk away safely. You won't be able to stop him from scaling, but with your lane prio you can roam around the map. ”
jmp_01_ says “Take Conqueror, hard to kill in lane due to his Passive - Carnivore. There is not much to say except to ult him in teamfights, he has a lot of bonus HP so he is the target you wanna throw into the enemy team.
Definetly take Blade of the Ruined King.”
lulw says “Don't let him land his knockup, it does a lot of damage early, and he will run you down if you get hit, Dont worry you have your dashes. Try to dodge his silence with your e. Take short trades. Try to fake all in and bait out his like autos with spikes idek tf they are but they do damage. CHO GOD IF ITS BALORI DODGE”
GarenteedDamage says “Cho'gath isn't too much of a threat early. However, once he gets level 6 he can eat your Maiden (your ult) without even having to do damage to it 1st. Try to save your ult until he eats a minion.”
Avelon6698 says “if he lands his skillshots earlygame he will survive or win, and lategame he scales in hp% scaling with e so he will be very hard to kill, I suggest your jungler helping earlygame to secure your lane and win game.”
Psychopathic Top says “Heard that this matchup isn't very easy in lower elos due to his execute being pretty dangerous in an all in. The trick in this matchup is to just all in the moment you feel like he is in kill range. Do not let him hit you with Q's and W's and chunk you down to an uncomfortable level (risk of getting one shot). Just always all in with full hp and it shouldn't be a problem at all. As long as you are not getting hit by every Q it should not be an issue. Side- stepping rupture would almost guarantee a kill when going all in. Try to kill Cho in lane, because scaling evenly vs Cho is actually not ideal. Nasus needs to be in a winning position (more gold) in this matchup. It isn't hard to do, as long as the Nasus player gets a skill or two.”
Gospodin Bure says “Same case as with Sion, dodge his skillshots, reset your passive on him a couple times and you've got a roast roach. I wouldn't suggest fighting between levels 6 and 13 as he can outplay you by just rightclicking you and pressing R. Post 13 you can kite the hell out of him.”
DippyDan says “Very strong Tank and can kill you if you play poorly. Will rush bramble and steelcaps. TIPS:  Get CUTDOWN rune.  If he ever uses Q near you, you can Q W to stun.  Keep pressuring sidelane to keep him away from team.”
Hecki says “Cho'Gath is a good matchup for Aatrox since he is completely immobile and easy to combo. But don't forget he can become a problem when he gets his tank items slowly so getting Black Cleaver / Serylda's Grudge as 2nd items are viable options. ”
ArshieMeBob says “This man hurts. If he hits his Q prepare for pain. He will rush Steelcaps and make your life miserable. At level 6 he gets a giant excecute and will probably win the all in. Just try to dodge his Q's and farm.”
Rocking Masterock says “Completely invulnerable to your poke, in this matchup you will have to Max E Q and DEFINITELY go for DS, it's a very deadly item to face for Cho Gath, it does very high damage to him and heals you back of big amounts, will make you harder to kill for everyone and also a threat for Cho'Gath.”
Unmasked Kayle says “[Standard runes] Never trade him pre 6, he just heals from passive. You never really win pre-11 unless he majorly fails, but you can still try to poke him. Rush boots and buy some MR, either Wits or just a 450g cloak. It will help you survive his full combo should you ever get hit by his Q.”
Sidrome says “There only 2 ways Cho wins this matchup and even still they are really hard to execute:
Start E level 1 and with ignite all in on you( even still u can just outrun on him or even sometimes just outtrade him);
Or kill you very, very, very late game(but Darius has still potential in killing him);”
IkorasBadIdea says “Again can't do much if not in melee range. Be careful of the knock up and you should be fine. Cho'gath can't get the feast stacks from you if your healing on them from R-W. His large amount of health will be problematic late game so, you generally want the max health burn items such as Liandry's Anguish and Demonic Embrace.”
Alan234 says “PTA Build
Cho has a lot of sustain but keep poking and maybe you will get a dive/kill on a bad cho (with bad i mean anything under master so yeah). Its important to dodge q when you suspect a gank because it spells immidate doom with flash r. Get Liandrys and Demonic Embrace for the double %hp burn if he is going tank”
Kartagoo says “This lane is a bit Mundo favored cuz your passive makes his trades worse. But respect his Grasp E trade so watch out for that. And his passive gives him a lot of sustain killing minions. Ult early when he gets 6 and u are low so you dont get bursted by his R. Let him push in so hes easy gankable cuz no escape Champ.”
aurus666lol says “If he goes AP, go Phase Rush to get slow resistance, if tank, don't let him scale! His E is annoying and it deals big damage, so I recommend Hexdrinker and PTA, OF COURSE IF HE GOES TANK!”
JaxIsAHobo says “Depending on whether chogath is played tank or AP greatly changes the difficulty of the matchup. AP Chogath is terrifying if you get chunked by his E -> W -> Q combo, as its almost unavoidable. Chogath can also Q from inside bushes, denying you the initial audio/visual que of chogath stomping his foot before his Q rupture. Avoid getting hit by his Q at all costs. Trade into him and deny him CS when his E is down, and try to all in him before he's able to poke you down.
Tank Chogath is far easier, and you can build vamp scepter + ruby crystal early, before finishing off the botrk to effectively fight chogath. Again, avoid getting combo'd whenever possible, and deny chogath CS to deny his healing from his passive. ”
MrShykun says “LANE FACILE ESQUIVEZ LES Q'S MATCHUP FREE APRES LE LEVEL 3.PRENEZ CONQUEROR ET SORCELLERIE. Cho’Gath est un champion un peu ennuyeux à gérer. La seule chose que vous devez savoir dans cette lane est de savoir comment éviter ses Q's. . Son knock up ruine votre all in car il vous ralentit après et il lui permet de vous combo avec le z et de s'éloigner puisque vous serez réduit au silence. Faites attention level 1 si il start E. Lors de la phase de lane vous devrez vous assurez que vous gagner les trades car il va sustain avec son passif sur les sbires. Ne loupez pas vos Q. Si chogath joue ap et que vous esquivez le Q c'est un free kill. Et si il joue tank c'est une free lane. Ne pas oubliez également que chogath est un champion sans mobilité et que donc une fois a son corp a corp vous avez gagner. En late game si il devient trop tanky lors des teamfights, ignorez le juste mettez lui 5 stacks et courez dans son équipe.”
SemPelo says “Before level 6 you win all the trades IF you do not get hit by his Q while he his is close to you. Afterwards is more or less the same,try to block his R with your E if you are getting low.”
DarkyTheReal says “Really hard to beat a good Cho'Gath, level 1 he wins if he starts E, and after that he has a silence to stop you from trading. You want to do extended trades and all-in on him when he has no Q. Get Executioners's calling.
Lupus_ToplaneMain says “Id say its easy, because you can parry his q really easy or dodge it. He isnt really mobile but might have glacial augment. Its also a good idea to parry his silence, because that is a huge threat later on in the game.”
SettVEVO says “This is what Sett dreams of aside from his Momma, lane might be boring, depends on how passive the player is, boots really help as you need to weave moving between your AAs to dodge his Q, if you managed to get low near him don't fight, he will combo you before you can W, but if you got low enough while in a trade you can W his ult to deny it completely. Taking short trades against him usually doesn't do much if he can CS cause of his passive, try to all in him and deny CS so he can't heal. Whatever happens in laning phase stays in laning phase cause he will now be a nuke to his own team in mid to late game. You need to master your ult to get the most out of Cho.”
Byku2506 says “Skill matchup, you have to play agressive against him, if you will freeze lane, he will poke you with Q and beat you by eating you. So pay attation and dont stop attacking him. I prefer to slow push him 24/7 and you will probably win lane.”
RTO says “Really easy pre 6. Easy to dodge his abilities with your e. You need to establish dominance early because once he gets his core, then you will have hard times. Silence can also be really annoying. Watch the animation for it and you can dodge it. ”
Fryx says “This Monster takes no damage from you if you let him get wave priority. Start the game slow let him have the wave and stay away from his E with Grasp. Maxing W and picking Grasp will give you decent damage against him. Push each wave hardcore and go base to refill your mana. It is a skill matchup. Don't let him chomp you and give him a Grasped up W Hit!”
wff010 says “Your W blocks his ult. The only time his ult should kill you is if he saves his silence/knockup before his ult, which he will do if he's smart. However, as long as you dodge his q in fights, you should win. Plus, he's a cho'gath. Ult him onto the enemy carry and get a one shot whether you won lane or not.”
Smartest2 says “A fairly easy and boring lane. Cho'Gath doesn't have much kill potential on us at any point in the game, and his beefiness lets him just walk out of fights without dying. The win condition of this lane is to maintain high cs, and deny him as much as possible. A 40cs lead would be a good place to be in.”
SanLourdes says “Cho'Gath is a tough champion for you to deal with because of how much CC he has. His Q and his W can disrupt your Q, and they are both on relatively low cooldowns. His ultimate will shut you down in extended fights, and he can just use his Q to stop you from chasing him down after you are dead. He also is extremely tanky if he builds tank items. Even if you don't feed him, it will always be hard to kill him later on in the game. Thankfully he isn't played very much.”
RareParrot says “rush boots, dont let him hit Q and kite back, bring cutdown press the attack, 1 hit q usually means you have to flash if hes 6 because %hp damage on his E and perma slow, max W second.”
ForgottenProject says “He's a strong frontline tank late-game so you dont want the game to drag on.
It's better to parry his Silence and Dodge His knock-up but you can parry both.
If you Parry the Knock-up just make sure you Q-E into him before he Silences you.
Never Forget the True Damage Ultimate, if you're low he will deal 30% of your HP as True Damage.
Later in the game that goes up to 50% of your HP.”
Fuu Enju says “Cho'Gath is very easy to burst early game. Try to bait out his abilities before going in. Late game, he will be too tanky. You will need to make sure you have an ADC or someone with a lot of damage and peel for them.”
Savage_XZ says “This is a skill match-up that is decided on landing skills. Cho 'Gath presents a small threat with his execute ulti which prohibits sustained healing in a close fight but is also rather slow.”
SavagePridestalker says “This matchup is pretty easy from the start, but after an item or two he will start doing more damage than you do, he will be tankier than you and most likely more useful than you.”
a1a7s45 says “Cho'Gath can be an extreme threat if you don't have the team to burst him down. All in him every chance you get so he can't be the late game monster that he is. He stacks HP so go for the standard build but replace Stridebreaker for Divine Sunderer and get Blade of the Ruined King earlier say around after Black Cleaver
Cho is a 3 to 4 on the ban scale. He becomes close to unkillable late game so prevent his apperance is the best way to counter him if you're not up for him.”
oogoogerson says “Cho'Gath is horrible against singed. Your movement speed is too much for him later in the game and he cannot hit a Q on you. You can bully him hard early game as well. Take Teleport because you can kill him without ignite.”
Safolet says “A matchup that I love. Cho'gath has nothing to do with your E mobility, your percentage damage with W, and your slow with Q. The only tool for Cho'gath to do something to you in his R, but then you realize that if you are in MiniGnar, Cho'gath will not be able to approach you, and if you are in MegaGnar, as soon as Cho'gath approaches, you have many ways to move him away or stun him and then exit the fight with the E and have a trade favorable.”
SethPRG says “His only real threat to you is his W silence and when he can ult you, but you should realistically never be low enough in lane to have Cho'Gath chomp you. Play aggressive against this million year old boy and freeze on him as much as possible. When you all-in him make sure to interrupt one of his E's AA animations with your E. Dodge his Q and you win, and it's even easier when you get level 6 as you can ult out of his Q. Just be careful when you're on low HP and don't save your W forever as he can ult you for a lot of true damage. Take Mercury Treads pretty early on to make your life easier, build Divine Sunderer as your Mythic and Black Cleaver as your 2nd item if he's armor stacking, or go Trinity Force into Abyssal Mask if he is running an AP build. If Cho'Gath ever walks up as the frontline for his team, just Alt+F4 his entire team by ulting him on them. ”
joelspaho121 says “Heavily darius favored because of how immobile and bad cho'gath is earlier on.
d blade start with sorc tree.
cho gath is really easy to deal with because of how immobile he is and because of his incredibly low damage.if he get caught by your e, it most likely means hes dead which means you should be looking to freeze lane right after.dont allow cho'gath to walk up and proc grasp without going unpunished because if you let him do so continually it'll lose you the lane, so never hesitate to fight cho gath if he walks up too far.Try not to keep the lane even as he outscales you at 2 items so always try to be aggressive(similar to the camille matchup).”
El Leon Gnar says “Cho has fallen far out of meta, and even before then he wasn't a threat to Gnar. Play around mid-range v.s. him, abuse him with your W procs, and make sure not to get knocked up out of your E and it's an easy lane.”
UlisesFRN says “Any tank with HP/Armor stacking is going to be a pain. You will deal poor damage to them unless you rush either BOTRK or Sunderer. Try to not die early and hold the lane until you can trade with them. At lvl 6 you gain passive Armor Pen”
DaSticks says “Should be able to dodge his Q. Don't stand behind minions so his E splash hits you. Auto him when he goes for minions. All in is quite easy and cho is actually fairly squishy early game.”
Godidi says “Cho'Gath is one of Teemo's worst matchups... Well, kinda. You see, if you take the movement speed runes and spells and the proper anti tank items, you will see that Cho isn't as scary as he actually may seem (I'm saying not as scary, not saying that he isnt scary). With your high af movement speed, if you can kite Cho'Gath well, using shrooms and movement speed in your favor, you will see that he is just an oversized minion, as his Ult and Q are his main damage sources, so, if he cant hit any of those, he doesnt do damage at all. Take movement speed runes, spells and items.”
NPGRiven says “Get push priority so Cho'gath is unable to poke you under his tower with your Q. Level 1 all-in, you will win as long as you aren't in a minion wave. At 6 you can all-in him around 60% hp. If you are below 50% hp yourself, don't try fight him.”
SirGRC says “Worth a Ban: No
Odds are he will be missing his Q because of your W and E but other than that he will be landing everything else. He is also very hard to kill even with just a few ult stacks. A void staff is going to be a must. I played a game against a OTP Cho’Gath and something I noticed about him was that he was missing a lot of Qs when you are on top of him. Maybe that was just him or maybe it is something that a lot of Cho’Gath players do.”
Humitaxx says “The only things you must be careful of is getting abused by his knockup, since you are the most vurnerable at that time, going tank can help you reduce the chance of getting ulted, but you need to snowball fast and avoid getting tons of damage, even if you think you can use it to your advantage.”
deathwalker7119 says “One of your easiest tank matchups, simply parry his Q and poke with vitals whenever he walks up. Take Doran's shield into him usually so you don't get low enough to R. You should try and develop a lead before bramble vest, as once he has it unless you have a lead he might proceed to absolutely shit on you for rest of lane.”
Nekosett says “Just like many tanks him playing this character just means more damage in teamfights when you ult a high hp immobile tank in the heart of there team dealing sometimes 1+ dmg its insane how one ult with a fed cho gath could mean a the team fight is won no matter how behind you may be ”
Excuruseh says “Watch out for execute, although you can burn it with clone. You have multiple gap closing abilities for him to miss his knockup, and you can easily kill him with Divine Sunderer and Q. I recommend building the Black Cleaver in this case if it is tank Cho.”
TwoKingzz says “Lethal tempo - max w - get tier 1 boots and blade of the ruined king asap. Play smart and look to dodge his Q and you can get free kills if he overextends. Splitpush him to death and track enemy jg.”
Womsky says “Scaling/mixed set up, El cocaracho, he is a fat champion, has no dashes, you can get fury and spin on him lvl 1 and beat him up especially if he doesnt start Q, later on just dodge his Q and you good, in mid game all u need is to watch out for his ulti, and use ur ulti sooner than usual, cause he can suprise u with his burst sometimes, outside of that, a fun matchup”
RealIreliaCarriesU says “This guy has a huge model so hitting your skills on him is super easy. He is also super squishy early on so you can start Q and look to build your passive and fight him early. You can also avoid all of his abilities with your Q granted you have minions around you. The only way you really lose is if you get hit by everything and he has minion advantages. Its also risky after 6 if you misstep as he can easily chase you down due to your low base movement speed and kill you. Fight with full passive and land your R and E, use minions to avoid his skill shots and you will win. Be careful of the jungler, it's the only way you really lose this lane.
tibs2 says “Don't trade autos unless you have shield and just kite him with q. Look to set up ganks because cho'gath cannot escape them. As long as you don't walk into his q's you are just hard chillin.”
SadmanV3 says “Cho'Gath whilst potentially deadly in the early game, can be slowly outscaled by Nasus over time, furthermore, baiting out Cho'Gaths Silence and stun makes him vulnerable.
Tips for laning Cho'Gath
1. Avoid his Stun
2. Avoid getting poked by his projectiles from his E
3. Avoid getting silenced and ganked.”
Noodles912 says “A good cho gath with spam Q at you. Stay away from minions to avoid W and E damage. Keep yourself healthy at all times, because his ult will destroy you if you are low. Recall if you need to . If he is low on mana, look to get him out of the lane to get some free guaranteed farm. If he goes AP chogath, mercs can help. ”
PiscesPomf says “SIMPLEST LANE FOR FIORA - DESTROY THE GAME !
Cho'Gath is the best champ to face when you play Fiora. His CC are really easy to parry and your passive detroys him. You can poke him for free, and when he's not to close of his turret parry one of his CC, ult, and get a kill ! You destroy him early, and it's worse in the late game: the biggest tank of the game is getting destroyed by your R.
abuses the character's weaknesses.”
SPJohnWD says “Cho in a duel loses nearly always as you can dodge his Q's with E1 and his silence does not last long enough to one shot you.
In this matchup sylas out scales cho as he can use his ult to scale his HP and become a menace to enemies team.”
teemodumbstupid says “He isn't much of a threat to you when you get Divine Sunderer, but he can be to your team. In teamfights W him so he can't reach your team. You will always win the 1v1 with Sunderer and Conqueror. Try to dodge his Q in laning phase.”
Urgodzilla says “His sustain makes it hard to kill him. If he goes Grasp, it becomes a little bit easier, if he goes Glacial Augment, it will be painful. Do your best to dodge his Qs and be careful about his lvl6 burst.”
ZeruelOP says “Literally hard to kill from the Silence of his W to his Q knockup you cant really win unless you ask for a gank
its best to try kill him as early as lvl 1 go for the E 1st then try bullying him early when he goes for that juicy CS”
jmp_01_ says “Can be annoying at some point, if you don't get hit by his Q - Rupture, you pretty much win any trade. Care after level 6 - he can just silence you and eat you while you have your full-charged W - Haymaker. Also if he got some bonus HP - simply ult him into the enemy team for big damage.”
Draconic56 says “Cho Gath is not a problem for Mordekaiser he doesn't really stand a chance you beat him in all-ins pre 6. After level 6 your ult does wonders as he is just a big ball of stats for you to steal from”
Spacix6 says “You will most likely kill him under lvl 6, then he will probably build morello for anti-healing and start killing you with his ult
Avoid trading against Cho since he has sustain and have a lot CC after lvl 6”
Dorom says “Now Cho'Gath is pretty strong right now and Gangplank can't fight him that much, but early game level 2-3 you should win. Look out for his Q as it enables him a knock-up + silence and 3 slows in a row, leading to you being fairly easy to chomp down level 6 or easy to get ganked.”
SanLourdes says “Cho'gath is hard to deal with, especially after level 6. His ultimate being able to execute many champions on low health is going to be very tough for you, as most of your damage done and time spent dueling is when your health is below 30%. He also is a very tanky champion and his CC will constantly interrupt your initiations. Build Divine Sunderer and Black Cleaver. ”
SpartanDumpster says “He has more ranged abilities that you can potentially ignore with your W, and you can wear down tanks fairly well. The main problem is that his ult is a close ranged execute, and Gwen doesn't have much HP, so you need to get ahead of him early, before he hits level 6, to prevent it from being a threat. His E gives him stronger trading, so look to bait him to activate it then punish him while it's on CD.”
pioj12 says “Here's an easy matchup bc of all your slows and kite you can dodge a lot of chogaths kit.
In early try to dodge his skills and bully him.
The only threat is at lvl 6 when cho gets a power spike bc of his R.
You can try to all in him as mega but I don't think you can oneshot him.
goblinKappa says “Just like Nasus, Cho'Gath is a farming champ, so when laning against one, you run the chance of playing against a passive (for the most part) Cho'Gath, use this to your advantage, but if the Cho isnt passive, just try your best to dodge his abilities and focus on your farming”
LaZyM says “Cho'Gath is difficult to make plays upon because of his silencing abilities so getting picks on him will only be possible with a jungler's assistance. U can still win lane however if u are able to CS better. Take teleport.”
The_Real_Wickd says “Cho'Gath is a champion you can beat. I would recommend to keep the wave exactly in the middle or to let him push slightly towards you. It's important that you don't push. If you push the wave under his tower he will have a super easy time staying alive, and healing with his passive every time he kills a minion. It's also super important that you're able to dodge his Q's in lane. The easiest way it to predict when he's going to use it to last hit minions and side step it at that time. That way he losses mana, and you have an easy time dodging.”
raede says “Cho'Gath can definitely be an issue if he gets to free farm or even gets fed but it's fairly easy to annihilate him in lane. A combo I use on him during tower dives is E Q W then Ring as soon as the knockup comes. This way you avoid the knockup and he can't W silence you since he's still stunned.”
Lunarisen says “Cho'gath is your equal when build tank, he'll try to farm and outscale as the enemy team's tank; but as he relies on his ult while you just need to farm minions, you'll come out on top as long as he doesn't get too many kills early.”
Alekra says “Can go either way but if you time your trades correctly, it is Garen favoured i would say. Use your Q movementspeed to dodge his Q and avoid trading with him when he has his E up. Without his ult he doesn't really have killpressure and he has no mobility so you can stack your E for free.”
lulw says “Pretty easy. He can also be used as a bomb in teamfights. Only thing you should be scared about him is his R and silence. If your below half hp do NOT get knock up. You will get 1 tapped since you can't haymaker during silence. Once you get bork playing against him gets way easier. His hp scaling only helps you do more damage. Try to get a good R with him in teamfights. ”
GrGamingTeo says “If you run full speed at Cho'Gath he will use his Q on top if him so just run either to you left or to your right and you are goo. Now a Cho'Gath after lv6, a coule of R stacks and maybe oen or two items is unkillable, he will always run away with 10 hp and it's the most annoying thing ever. Honestly just don't try to fight him at that point he is not worth your time.”
LunaticDancer says “Skill match up. You need MR. The main things to be wary of is that him killing your ghouls gives him health and mana, so don't waste them uselessly, and he can eat your Maiden with his R, which is an asshole move. But you do beat him in an even 1v1, so just don't get outpaced in the first 5 levels and you'll stomp the lane.”
SpyDaFX says “very annoying, go doran's shield, ask for ganks, get a lead before level 6 or you will probably lose the lane (his ult counters you). try to roam. you CAN win the lane before 6 if he decides to go ap, then it's very easy if you dodge his stuff (Q/W/E), if he goes ap and u run press the attack it's a free lane. but you cant predict what runes he goes so still, go Conqueror.”
Ravenborne says “Depends on his build. If he goes AP, there is a chance he will just poke you down from afar with Q and then go for the final all-in, so be sure to try and dodge his Q. If he goes Tank, this matchup is very easy because he lacks the Damage to kill you early on and all you have to do is play around his cooldowns and his Q knockup - if you manage to to dodge his Q you will most likely get a free trade or even a kill.”
Rank_1_Idiot says “You won't beat him in lane, as he will outsustain you and scale, and he can all-in you rather easily with his large amounts of cc. However, Cho'gath is easily gankable, so get your jungler ahead.”
mobsterplatypus says “Build magic resist and try to prevent him from stacking. He has poor mobility similar to mordekaiser with high killing power, especially if he goes AP. If he's tank, rush riftmaker ASAP and if he's AP build spectres cowl quick and merc treads quick (also helps with silence). Try to cheese his ultimate with your W.”
Kil4fun says “I don't understand why people say he's good into Kayle. Use your movement speed to dodge his knockup. If he can't get to you you can poke him for days. He will out sustain you but you can still chunk him out with auto attacks. Don't fight him level 1 as you will lose.”
Devilofthewest says “Chogath is really difficult to deal with, They have a ton of built in sustain and a really great knock up poke skill that can ruin your farming experience. They will either build full tank or go Damage, either way really sucks because it will be really hard to kill him if they are tank and really annoying getting poked by damage cho. The way i deal with chogath is i take ELECTROCUTE and burst him everytime electrocute is up, you will have to beat him early game or he will out scale you and you'll lose lane. (DONT LET HIM EAT YOU also bring IGNITE xD)”
kingchas2 says “Just dodge his Q by using your W. A well-timed ult can block his R and you can just chop him down. Once you have Bork you can just kill him. If he build AP then you can kill him as soon as you are 6.”
ineptpineapple says “Pretty tricky with that ult he can eat you before you really feel like you need to back off. And he can do that weird long rage knockup to interupt you and then eat you. STAY AWAY and you should be ok. If you feel he is going to ult you ult him first and get away or kill him.”
Heckin says “This is a very tricky champ to put into a single bracket in. Early game it feels that you are winning, but after lvl 6 you just start loosing, but that's okay. SO JUST POKE SO THAT HE CANT HEAL OFF OF HIS PASSIVE.”
NoFriendsPlayLoL says “Extremely abuseable pre-6. Rush your mythic item as you want damage and to HP stack to reduce dying to his ult. Always pay attention to how many stacks he has and how much true damage his ultimate does.”
Raideru says “Very easy in early game u always try to bait him to auto so u press e and run him down try to dodge the q if u do the outtrade will be very big. Later on he becomes annoying because of his one shot ult lvl 11+”
TioKirb says “Ok, Cho'Gath may be kind of hard to deal with at level 1 if he has his E, but you can be aggressive enough to hit him and avoid his other abilities at level 2 onwards. If you do everything right, he has no way of getting close to you without receiving massive quantities of damage.”
PinjaPJ says “Proxy vs this guy if you can, depends on the jungler. He's literally all skillshots but will doo-doo on you if he gets a good Q. If he gets ahead get rylai's as that will instantly make you have more impact during teamfights.”
EU_Toxicity says “Tank cho'gath is a minor threat. AP cho'gath is a bit harder to face early on. Rush Cleaver vs tank Cho, Magic resist vs AP.
Regardless of his build, try to look for an opportunity to all-in (for example right after he misses his Q). Do not waste your time poking/short trading as his passive will just heal him back up again and he'll win the sustain battle.”
iZeal says “Cho'Gath's early game is pretty much entirely focussed around his sustain. Slowpush so he loses a lot of minions and is forced to farm from afar with his mana-intensive abilities or freeze the wave on your side of the map to deny Cho the ability to trade with you, then run him down. Don't get hit by his Qs. If he goes the Glacial Augment route he is extremely squishy but can deny you the ability to teamfight properly with his spammable slows.
DBlade or Dshield, Swifties are helpful vs Glacial Cho, otherwise proceed with Phage.”
DarkNavarre says “Cho doesn't really present much of a threat as long as you aren't failing to dodge his knockup, as without it, he has no reliable way to get on top of you and you can kite him easily.”
NoxianBlood says “Cho Gath can be a Tank melter with his spikes, but he has little to defend himself, so kiting him and few stuns and slows, even though he has a lot of hp he won't be fast enough to burst you down, so in team fight just stun him allot of times, and he will drop, just try to protect your squishies he will certainly munch them if they get too close. putting your team in a rough spot by eliminating one of your teammates and it might be the ADC and will already take off your entire damage output. ”
byThiagus says “Freezeale la wave.. Sali con la segunda pagina de runas y espada de doran, DESTRUILO, chogath es un champ con mucho sustain pero no puede hacer NADA en all in contra vos. solamente no le pushees como un descerebrado y forzale trades largos SIEMPRE, te hace outsustain.”
Stijnzxz says “Chogath aint the biggest problem early.. however he can stack some HP and if he goes AP and he hits all hes abilities ur kinda fuckt so keep hes cd early in mind and if u play it cool u can 1v1 him be aware of hes JG.”
Leukasdf says “Literally doesn't harm you. You beat him early and you can burst him down with Serylda's Grudge. Use your q's for poking as you would do for every matchup and you'll win against him easily.”
AWierdShoe says “Contest the push level 1 with Q and try to hit level 2 before him. if you do, just taunt him and hard trade level 2, preferably with the 6-Emp auto trade if you can position the blade correctly before you hit level 2. Avoid getting into long trades where he gets to E-auto you 3 times (if you’re equal levels), and don’t get hit by Q’s and you should win this lane every time early on. Punish your lead hard, don’t let him free farm once you got one.”
TrinityForceYasuo says “He's pretty annoying to face. Has good sustain from passive,decent wave clear,annoying silence and tanky. Try to predict his Q, dodge it,while he uses E stay away from the minions or go in front of him use W and poke him while he AA's the minions. Buy bork against him, it helps sustain and is pretty good against tanks. Try to punish against any melee champs like cho when they go for minions especially early levels so you can have a good potential to all in them a bit later (if you have ignite the chance is even bigger) also on top against any match up I personally freeze and it helps me a lot to win the lane+when the enemy oversteps you have a good chance there to run them down since yasuo wins extended trades against most champs ( Especially tanks) and you can also set up ganks this way.”
viktoreeu says “Walking meat.
Build a bit of fury and kill him.
If you are not behind then having Kraken = you win any trade or fight against him.
Dodge his Q means a free kill.
Press your damn R
NickCola Tesla says “Strictly a farm lane. Neither of you can really kill the other without Jungle interference. You'll both just be looking to stack HP, but he's more useful late game because of his True Damage nuke! Once he completes his build and gets the Gargoyle Stoneplate, he'll be able to one shot your backline with his ult.
If he goes the AP route, he'll be poking you down, but an Adaptive Helm will do the trick against his Vorpal Spikes. Just make sure you dodge his Rupture, and don't get cheesed early on. If your backline can dodge his skillshots against the AP build, his ultimate won't be scaling nearly as much!”
StrikeX114 says “With point-and-click CC anywhere near him in his Q, it is extremely difficult to play anywhere remotely safe to him. Add to that his low health execution ability in his ultimate, and any damage you take stacks the odds greater in your opponent's favor. Do not hesitate to utilize your summoner spells if you deem it necessary to do so.”
Saarlichenbog says “Cho'Gath is barely a threat in lane with his poor base armour. Take advantage of him missing his Q for an early lead. He has relatively poor CC, poor base stats but good scaling. Outside of his poor sustain through his passive, there isn't really a way for him to win outside of ganks. Kraken Slayer is a must in this matchup for the late game as his natural scaling overtakes past 6 stacks of his ultimate which is why you have to play the lane to stall it as long as possible and get your items as fast as possible.”
LOLArfopi says “Even though you do good in lane, he will 99.9% of the time camp your bot lane for easy Feast Stacks (his R). He spirals out of control once he gets tanky enough to sustain himself in fights. Constantly pressured in lane with his Q. If you do go against him, there are 2 things you can do. One, you have to play your lane perfectly. You dodge all of his Qs. You last hit every single minion. And you play around his cooldowns (meaning when he wastes Q, you have a 7 second window to get on him, E, deal dmg, then jump out. OR, 2nd, is to dodge. Honestly not worth it. Because your teammates will just feed him themselves while you're split pushing. So just ban.”
llametekudasai says “dodgea sus Q listo ese es todo lo que tienes que hacer, el problema es que su ulti es mas rápida que la de darius, asique si tienes pensado hacer un diveo con menos de la mitad de vida, te recomendaría no hacerlo, ya que el puede que te muerda mientras casteas la ulti.”
Klappy says “- Tradeos de Q+Pasiva en early
- Usa la M/S de tu pasiva y habilidades para esquivar sus Qs, si logras darte una Q es casi 100% seguro que te hara una rotacion perfecta de combos
- Al 6 puedes matarlo de all in si gasta su Q o W, o si tiene un 60% de vida”
TheMightyNinja says “Q: Spawns a circle on the ground that after 0.5 seconds knocks up any enemies caught in it and slows them by 60% for an additional 1.5 seconds, you can dodge that easily, just make sure you don't stand in the minion wave as they may block your retreat.
W: Cho screams in a cone, any enemies caught in it are silenced. Be aware of that when you engage as he may delay your abilities.
R: You should always be aware of your health bar since his ultimate deals true damage and can execute you. If he tries to use ultimate on one of your allies don't rush with your ultimate to save them, true damage will bypass any shields resulting in you wasting your ultimate.
The matchup itself is pretty easy, you can set him behind right from the start by either a level 1 cheese or a level 1 push contest, get level 2 before him and try an extended trade.”
aiSky says “Champions able to execute Kled in its dismounted form can be hard to play against.
However is not the end of the world. You can still destroy them, and as far as you keep mounted, and they wont be able to kill you with their ultimate.”
Nicklstherealone says “You wont really lose your Lane but it will be hard to kill him. If you Grab him which is easy you can just run around him and meanwhile dodge his Q and if your W is active it wont get Silenced. Just Remember his Ult is Exexute so your E-Shield wont save you. ”
Lenter says “Try to take first blood on him so he does not get that lead. Later try to outscale him. If Cho is builing tank then build Sunderer. Mind that he can eat you if your low so use W as much as possible.”
Frostyfps says “This guy has a huge model so hitting your skills on him is super easy. He is also super squishy early on so you can start Q and look to build your passive and fight him early. You can also avoid all of his abilities with your Q granted you have minions around you. The only way you really lose is if you get hit by everything and he has minion advantages. Its also risky after 6 if you misstep as he can easily chase you down due to your low base movement speed and kill you. Fight with full passive and land your R and E, use minions to avoid his skill shots and you will win. Be careful of the jungler, it's the only way you really lose this lane.”
Time1Save says “It is sustained on the line, which complicates the constant poke, and after getting 6 LVL, it all depends on your microcontrol . But as long as you play with an advantage, you have to give your team an advantage as well .”
Mordekaiserrrrrrr says “Although Cho'Gath may seem extremely weak to you early, if he is building AP he can do a decent amount of damage with Q early and is quite a threat late game, so just try to fight him often early and mid game to prevent him from having a chance to grab cs and regain health and mana. ”
TangoVallhala says “Ez matchup watch out for his Q and poke him as much as possible. You can still lose this matchup so don't all in him if he has all CDs up, he has better sustain, can cc you, and execute you.”
Luceris says “Standard Grasp Runes
Build Trinity or Divine Sunderer as Mythic. Would recommend early boots to help dodge his Q. Keep bushes warded and dodge Cho'Gath Q and the lane is super free. He has no kill pressure on you if he misses Q and even if he does you can root him and then turn the trade on him in the early game. Farm stacks as well as the enemy lets you and look to build a BLACK CLEAVER fairly early on. Trinity helps dodge Q's and Divine Sunderer is great vs Tanky Cho'Gath. Overall easy lane as long as you play around his Q and poke him early.”
EternalBadPlayer says “Cho´Gath this season is OP. I find it hard as hell to play versus Cho´Gath because of the items he builds and how much he does dmg. If you dont feed him early you have a chance to destroy him late game but if you give him 3 kills and 2 stacks or R, you just need to relly on ADC with Kraken slayer. His kit is so annoying, dmg, knockup, slow, silence and to top it off R similiar to Darius except he doesnt need stacks of his passive. He can just Flash + R and eat ADC. And his passive is op too. The sustain he gets is crazy.”
LoL destroyer says “All you have to do to beat Cho'Gath is get to him, you shred his armor and your ult will demolish him, if you hit your combos right you can easily take him. Be careful of his silence if you are low health, he can airborne, silence and then chomp.”
YoungTact says “Take Conqueror here. Apply Lane harass combo and dodge his Q to the best of your ability. Apply 1 Lane Harass Combo once you are level 3 and then once its just about to tick out go for an extended trade. ”
qasddsa says “Dodge his Q and be careful about his silence if you're in melee range. Max Q and E - late game the execute on E will be incredibly useful in killing him. Try to time your ult to when you think he will ult you if you're low. Definitely rush a Blade of the Ruined King.”
PH45 says “Sustains mana as well so you will run out of mana faster in this matchup. He has no escapes though outside his summoners so when your jungler comes just CC him and you should be good to go.”
ERNESTSAURUS says “CONQUEROR / SPELLBOOK SETUP - DORANS SHIELD / 3 REJUVENATION BEADS + POT =
Cho'Gath is an inmobile tank with a lot of CC that can deal with Nasus pretty well specially since he has a true damage scaling ultimate. In laning phase you should try to predict where he's going to Q whenever he smashes the floor with his "foot" and then look to dodge it, if you wait for the circle to appear, its going to become more difficult since Nasus doesn't have a dash and is also inmobile. Cho'gath either go for a full AP Build or a Tank Build. If he goes Full AP just be carefull of his poke, he can deal a lot of damage to you that if your not playing properly, you won't be able to outsustain him, the downsite for him is that he is not tanky at all, so whenever you get some items and some MR you will be able to run him down as long as you start the fight with your ult. If he goes Full tank is the complete oposite, he won't have enough poke to get you out of lane, but he will be able to fight you in the midgame and if player properly, kill you. Once you are both full build, in a late game teamfight look to peel your team, usually Cho'gath will go for your ADC or a Squishy target in your team.”
PH45 says “He will sustain a lot due to his passive but shouldn't really ever kill you unless you misplay hard. Poke him with Q and when his Q is on CD you can try to all in him since that is his only disengage. Cho is really vulnerable to ganks so ask your jungler to come for free kills if he keeps extending a lot.”
SkellyBirb says “Cho'gath has quite a bit of damage for a tank. If he knocks you up he can easily burn your flash or ultimate. He also has a silence which can block your charm and ultimate which are very important to AD Ahri.”
Grayified says “Lethal Tempo Runes and Build. Ignite + Flash. Long sword refillable potion start. Cho'gath has high sustain and a 7 second crowd control knockup in a circle aoe. His knockup is fairly easy to dodge if you are looking for his cast animation on it, and Cho'gath is immobile (no dashes or bursts of movement speed) so if you can dodge his Q you can get really solid trades on him. Early game look to build up fury without taking too much damage from his E (his empowered auto attacks) then look to trade. Force an extended trade, by starting off trades with an auto attack when he goes for a minion that way you can save your spin to dodge his Q or to stick on top of him when he walks away (position your spin in between Cho'gath and his escape path which will usually be his turret) In the mid-late game, Cho'gath will be extremely difficult to dive, but you can beat him if he is far up in lane with an effective all in OR you can shove Cho'gath in and outrotate him with your superior mobility. Cho'gath's ult is EXTREMELY high burst so make sure if you fall into his ultimate execution range that you press R a little bit early.”
I Am Goliath says “Cho'gath is very strong right now just because the way his ult works, he will probably out scale you in teamfights but lane should be in your favor, he HP stacks hard especailly with his ult giving base HP each time he eats something so your W is always going to do a lot of damage to him, not only that but he will be eating minions most likely to get his 6 stacks in lane so he basically doesn't have ult for awhile. You can pressure Cho'Gath a lot in lane but I think he is easier and tankier then Gnar out of lane.”
Nabura says “Shouldn't be too much of a problem unless he takes Glacial Augment, which then he becomes a Major/Extreme threat. Remember that his Q is a fairly low cooldown so you will have to dodge it a lot.”
STIERNACKENTYP says “Cho can be a problem when he gets ahead since u wont deal damage to him when he got armor and his ult is busted. Try to farm as much as possible and dont trade him since his passive heals him too much.”
EntxRecoil says “Lethal Tempo Runes and Build. Ignite + Flash. Long sword refillable potion start. Cho'gath has high sustain and a 7 second crowd control knockup in a circle aoe. His knockup is fairly easy to dodge if you are looking for his cast animation on it, and Cho'gath is immobile (no dashes or bursts of movement speed) so if you can dodge his Q you can get really solid trades on him.

Cho'gath's ult is EXTREMELY high burst so make sure if you fall into his ultimate execution range that you press R a little bit early.”
orangepenguinhead says “If it's tank Cho'gath, its no a big problem just farm for the first few levels since he can out range you. However, if it is the glacial augment Cho'gath, you need to play extremely safe because he can chase you down if you get CC'ed. ”
ZergDood says “You might want to take Conqueror in this matchup. He scales really hard, but he doesn't have mobility, and if he misses his stun, it's fairly over. Rush Executioner's Calling/Bramble Vest, build health/MR, don't let him farm, try to push and roam and get the match over as soon as possible. Get this thing far away from your carry, don't be afraid to R him.”
qazx1427 says “If they're good, they won't let you get within 100 feet of them until their HP bar is the size of a small building. If they suck, you can just bully them by freezing wave and abusing Liandry's.”
Ayanleh says “Easy matchup at all stages of the game. You have so much health later on in the game so his true damage will take little of your health early is easy and conqueror + passive just makes it easier.”
HIGH TEST TOP88 says “Skill matchup, he deals quite alot of damage earlygame and he can CC you before you can W and burst you down.
However, you have 2 spells that scale off max hp and if you can stick on him he melts like butter.
You can dodge his Q knockup with your R or the Q in its entirety, he will use it when you get on him most often.
ERNESTSAURUS says “GRASP (SCALING) SETUP - DORANS SHIELD + POT =
Chogath is an inmobile tank, he has a lot of damage with ult and his abilities are annoying to deal with as Nasus. Chogath has 2 ways of building, the full tank or the AP way, If he goes full tank, he will eventually build bramble vest when he realises you have legend bloodline, so look to outplay his item purchase by autoatacking him so gets tower aggro, while he mostlikely will try to proc demolish, if you aer below certain ammount of health try to disengage, he will stack you and become stronge than you. If he decides to go for the AP build, you simply just farm get Mercury's Treads and look to dodge his Q and burst him right after with ult and sheen, if he goes ap, he will simply not have the health or resistances to beat you. In this matchup a to go item is Spirit visage, since it will improve your healing and and give you 450 health to stop him from oneshotting you with ult, gives also CDR, Health regen, overall a must to go item into this matchup. If you feel confident you can go ghost in order to dodge the Q Knockup.”
Shumair says “This champ will just want to farm out the lane against you as he has no kill pressure on Mordekaiser. You can simply freeze the wave, sit back and watch him get measly amounts of CS with his vorpal spikes. If he ever dares walk up and touch your wave, you should E-Q him and run him down. His escape is not the best so if you want to snowball, you can but do it before he gets tanky.”
ZzZ3DemonAngelZzZ says “Cho' Gath has no kill pressure, but u don't have kill pressure either. build some MR and you are ready to go. but he will out scale you really hard so try to be useful early game instead of endgame”
wallobear53 says “Cho’Gath is weakest during the early game when he doesn’t have a stacked Passive. He is very immobile so you should work with your team to poke him and kill him quickly.
His knock-up is his main CC tool and needs to be avoided at all costs. If you have any mobility spell on you, use it to dodge it as getting hit by it will allow him to use his Ultimate on you and possibly kill you.
Keep a track on Cho’Gath’s whereabouts on the map. If he leaves lane, he may be helping his Jungler do a Neutral Objective. Scout around and see if you can kill him before he can use his Ultimate on the Objective.
oskii77 says “Cho'Gath has a lot of sustain and damage on lane. He can easily poke you to death and after going into him for a trade, he can fastly heal up. Rush Mercury's Treads to minimalize his Crowd control. You can try to fight with him after a BOTRK beacuse you will melt him pretty fast.”
Sir Obliterator says “Even though this is an easy matchup he has some nice base damage so make sure you're not missing your Q's. if you can't dodge his Q use E bfore it lands so he doesn't gap-create. You know the drill just all in him when he goes for cs cos it's just so free. You don't lose to him 1v1. AP cho players will stand at Caitlyn range and farm with Q so you'll just have to freeze and farm in that scenario.
TL;DR E when he Q's if you can't dodge his Q
Kryptonite: Black Cleaver, Maw of Malmortius and Adaptive Helm ”
gsaeyx says “Go full tank if he's going full tank and full AD if he's going full AP. Phrase Rush could work in both situations if you're not sure about whether it's a tank cho or a Ap cho, since you're a slippery motherfucker”
BloodyDream81 says “C'est un match up pénible, il possède beaucoup de sort à distance pour farm sans se mettre en danger et son passif lui régénère de la vie à chaque fois qu'il tue des sbires. En revanche si tu évites son A, et le force dans un trade ALL in, tu gagneras à coup sur ! Pour ce faire y'a une petite astuce, tu te positionne entre lui et les sbires, et lorsqu'il tente de farmer les sbires avec son Q, tu utilises tout de suite ton fantôme pour lui foncer dessus, la première fois il ne s'y attendra pas, et tu auras de grande chose d'obtenir un kill.
Astuce : Essaie de l'empêcher de farm un maximum sans trop t'exposer au jungle adverse, Cho gath à un excellent follow up de gank, avec ton bump et son silence. Les bottes de mercures et le phage rapidement t'aideront bien.”
Kingarthur720 says “Lethal Tempo Runes and Build. Ignite + Flash. Long sword refillable potion start. Cho'gath has high sustain and a 7 second crowd control knockup in a circle aoe.

Cho'gath's ult is EXTREMELY high burst so make sure if you fall into his ultimate execution range that you press R a little bit early.”
Xplor says “Cho'gath can win against you only if he lands all his skill successfully on you while you are getting ganked. Beware of that.
Other than that, although once upon a time, Cho'gath was one of the biggest Yorick counters, as now, I don't consider much of a threat. But of course, don't underestimate him.
If he gives you troubles, run some early MR.”
Angela du Seithr says “Cho'Gath a beau se présenter comme un sac à PV qui semble faire une cible facile pour Lillia, un Q de sa part peut vous faire regretter d'avoir été en lane. Le max W est également problématique, car vous n'avez pas sa sustain et il peut nullifier vos trades.”
ForOrion says “Pyke can't burst down tanks very well, if they scale hard enough that is. Any large body champion has the potential to just steamroll right over him. Don't fight, dodge his q and e. If he goes AP however, you have a chance of an early lead. Freeze and out zone and wait till his abilities are on CD for quick burst engage with your HOB and commit.”
MateuszNH says “Hard matchup.
Like any ap tank he counter you, and his sustain is great so try to rather all unless you can control wave after trade. play around his q and jump on him if he does one. Your are fine the later.”
DirtyDishSoap says “He can't kill you, you can't kill him either. Farm lane basically. He'll heal off your ghouls, and his sustain is too fast for you to keep up with. He has no real way of closing the gap without burning flash, and he runs the risk of being killed for doing that.”
Sq_09 says “If he knocks you up you can just take the hit and continue. Same for the silence. He's pokeable and kiteable and you can get constant grasp stacks off of him. He also can't instachomp you bc you build kinda tanky. ”
SabinX says “Overall decent against Wu, his kit keeps him alive early game(his passive mostly) and the fact he is an Ap-ish Tank is a natural counter to Wu, but not unkillable. You should be fine after the core build.”
Kingarthur720 says “chogath is a champion that can scale with graves quite well with his builds, AP or health. Be careful when he hits 6 because he cann 100 to 0 you if you dont dodge his Q. Try your best to avoid his E or his Q since these are his main abilities to poke. i recommend grasp build to heal and get a little bit more health and maybe ”
TentiTiger11 says “Not that dangerous. The knock up and silence is bad in teamfights and in 1v1. Build some MR and merc treads if you can. Once he has warmogs, laning is hard. Try to destroy tower as fast as you can to stop laning.”
VIP Titan says “Try to kill him ASAP. Make sure you get ruined king for this champion. He gets low of stacks in mid game and can potentially R you easily. So make sure control lane well.
Try to kill him before 6. You will have to get ruby crystal no matter what. Or he can one combo you at level 6.
Your E is like his R so make sure spam it as much as you can
Max E not Q ”
SirDrPotato says “You can easily either dodge his abilities or riposte them. Be aware that he can silence you and once silenced you will not be able to Lunge away or riposte his Knock Up. Do not forget that his ultimate deals true damage.”
Starci says “Parry his Q and it's easy stun. He will then silence you but it doesn't last that long and shouldn't be a problem. He could silence you and then use his Q, but you should have enough mobility to easily dodge it anyway. Just be warry of his ult and don't get too cocky, even if you might have a lot of lifesteal and your ult is up.”
SuPIeX says “Pretty easy matchup. Dodge his Q and E quickly before he silences you. I like to trade by walking up without Q, auto attack, E, then activate Q toward the end of your E, hit him with Q, then run back. Your ult scales off missing health which will do wonders against his massive hp pool.”
Discord Rengar Mains says “He telegraphs himself a lot and his early levels are not that strong. He gains a significant spike once he gets 6, but if you manage to dodge his Qs and bait his W silence with your empowered W you will make mincemeat of him. If you ever get a sizeable lead on him just push as much as you can so you can take down turret fast and roam, since he will do jackshit for the rest of the match. Do note he can set up fairly good ganks, so watch out. If he gets ahead he just becomes a very annoying meatwall if he went tank, but he can give you trouble, so watch out. Either Ignite or TP works fine, and you can take most runes into this matchup.
Itreallyhim says “Easy kill early on, He will get tanky but dont be afraid, His flesh isnt made of iron, Be careful about his ULT it can catch you off guard, otherwise Go for long trades, Should be a breeze.”
classicnoob says “This is a skill matchup Like morde Look at his body language to win.look at his positioning cuz you can predict when he tries to do Q.Both ults are strong Cho takes the win Higher Execute damage.”
Cats4lyfe123 says “Try to bait out Cho'Gath's Feral Scream before going in because if he hits you with it, he can land his other abilities and chunk you. Be careful of his ultimate, it does a surprising amount of damage.”
Death Rusofag says “Increíble CC y sustain. Puedes jugarle agresivo a los primeros niveles y se curará eventualmente farmeando, puede matarte rápidamente con su nivel 6 y tiene más daño que tú yendo tanque. Trata de pokearle constantemente, no dejarlo farmear y cuidado al divear.”
lugzinho says “One of the easier tanks to fight against.
Dodge his Q, i guess.
If it gets too tanky to the point he wins fights, just push the leane and look for roams with your R or TP (if you brought it)”
Thr3shPrinc3 says “This is a lane you will most likely win if you keep dodging his Q. If Cho'Gath doesn't hit you with his Q he has practically no way of actually catching you and you can just kite him and poke him during laning phase. Don't shove the lane as he gets free healing and mana out of his passive and do not even think of coming near him when he has his ultimate. No matter how hard you are winning he will probably still be able to kill you if he has R and he lands a Q so be warned.”
ForgottenProject says “Cho’Gath takes Grasp of the Undying
When he uses his E spikes and autos you, that’s the main source of damage, so Parry the AA
I don’t parry his Q knockup because he can silence you before using it”
spaceriftmaster says “This match up mainly depends on how early in the game you are. Late game you won't be able to kill him on full ult stacks however early game he does no damage and is pretty squishy meaning you can easily beat him in duels early.”
Braddik says “If he's building tank, you can smack him early if you dodge his q. If you can get a lead over him pre6, you'll destroy him forever. If he's AP cho and he knows how to play it, you're fucked, he'll zone you and 1 shot you.”
Trial_By_Barrel says “Cho'Gath is a pretty easy match up overall. Mainly because you can bully him by poking him out of lane. You can also heal out of execution range. The only hard thing about Cho'Gath is his Q. Obviously the easiest route is to just dodge them. Basically, just abuse his bad early game and try to shut him down so he won't become such a threat later.”
Darkseige555 says “This is a matchup that is played early in the game. If you destroy him early, and it is very doable, his level 6 powerspike will be much weaker and you will be able to snowball. If you go even, he will be very threatening level 6 and you will need to give up on abusing cho'gath because the true damage is very strong against poppy.”
Pedrokis says “Bota muita pressão e evita deixar ele escalar muito. / Toma cuidado com os ganks, nisso ele pega muita vantagem, principalmente se tiver buildando AP. / Dá vários Qs e aproveita que ele não tem mobilidade. / Cuidado com o knock up e o silence dele, além daqueles espetos que dão bastante dano enquanto você farma.”
Askio says “Has a lot of cc, and a dangerous ult. But most times his ult is being used on minions to build his HP. Once his ult is down and you have the engage on him, you can hit him hard before he gets his mid/late game tank king status. ”
VicGal96 says “He telegraphs himself a lot and his early levels are not that strong. He gains a significant spike once he gets 6, but if you manage to dodge his Qs and bait his W silence with your empowered W you will make mincemeat of him. If you ever get a sizeable lead on him just push as much as you can so you can take down turret fast and roam, since he will do jackshit for the rest of the match. Do note he can set up fairly good ganks, so watch out. If he gets ahead he just becomes a very annoying meatwall if he went tank, but he can give you trouble, so watch out. Either Ignite or TP works fine, and you can take most runes into this matchup.”
Valorkyrie Quinn says “He can't really kill you unless he hits 6. Just dodge his Q and W.
Tip: You can dodge his Q with your E.
If perfectly timed, you'll be in mid-dash when his Q pops. It can't interrupt your E unless you are in his Q area. ”
BeautifulWinter says “Like most other matchups play passive until level 6 and then push aggressively when your ult is up.
When He tries to Q you, you can dodge the knock up by ulting.
In a fight you want to land an E early and poke before moving in as Cho'Gath has a lot of burst and might be able to Ult you before you can finish him (later levels not so much 6-11)”
Big Belly Bop says “Dodge. The. Q!!! If he lands his Q on you, you're DONE! Other than that, this lane is CAKE. You can freeze the wave and deny farm, shove him in and poke, or keep ganking him over and over with a jungler since he has no mobility. Flash + TP, Doran's Blade + 1 HP, Sustained Damage rune page.”
ExfIamed says “This is probably the easiest lane you're gonna get toplane for Garen, just dodge the knockup and constantly poke him down, he runs out of mana fairly quickly. Hit level 6 and just kill his ass, but watchout his ult does the same thing yours does.”
Noc7urnalz says “Cho is one of the lanes that can get you pretty fed if he doesn't play passive in the early game. You can block his knock up and then really burst him down while he isn't tanky yet . NEVER go for a trade vs him if you fail to hit your Q as the trade will be in his favor. remember that you can also block his R with your W.
NOTE : If it's an AP cho , make sure before going for a trade to either block his W or his Q , as a full combo from him can kill you.”
LuxIsMyCrush says “just dodge his Q and you should be ok, just dont let him touch you and you should be ok, this thing have a lot to much cc and damage gathering together with that ult which do a lot of true damage and make him tankier and can also be more effective than a smite, but early you own, and if you can survive from the level 6 whenever the lane phase will go you should win, poke him lv 1-2 as much as possible tho and don't let him get close of you or minions, try to predict the q, even if you dont, if you are close enough you should easy dodge it”
Defensivity1 says “Be carefull to not get all inned and ulted by cho gath if you got poked down before he hit level 6, his ult does more damage the more health you lack always spam your e whenever you have ghouls to poke him and look to cage him up with your w when you hit level 6, as he is guaranteed to die if you just run at him with the maiden and some ghouls, if he doesnt flash out that is. against cho the conqueror page is recommanded, however the grasp page is okay too if you preffer that.”
mightydylan101 says “Cho is actually really annoying as his Q has a pretty long range. If he hits it then you get knocked up and he has enough time to combo you and you're dead before you know it. His W cancels you're W. Not played much so don't worry about the ban.”
ProgettoYorick says “Cho'gath personally has never caused me so many problems, hit him with the usual E-W-Q combo. The only problem that can cause you is the devouring of the R by its R.
OTP Tip: Try to kill him as many times as you can before he gets too tank”
Greekamol says “His w is very annoying and his e autos will mess you up. Cho gaths know that it's easy for you to parry the q so he will silence you before it knocks you up. try to dodge the q with your q and use w to slow him and fight him. You will feel useless if you let him snowball.”
ThisIsJustSad says “1. Cho'gath is a free matchup if he just tries to walk into you and 1v1 you. However, at level 5, he can just start spamming Qs every 6 seconds and that lets him sit back and farm the wave easily. At level 6, he has an execute that lets him kill your drain tanking aspect.
2. If you're not ahead, you will have to W his Q or w his R to kill him. Otherwise, he will usually beat you 1v1 until 25 minutes.
3. Be careful when you're low hp as he may silence you then press R and you won't be able to W. So, don't think you can walk up to him when you're low hp and you'll just W his R.”
AlienMV says “Beware getting too close
As a tank, Cho'Gath doesn't seem that threatening. However, since you will not have resistances like other melee laners, he does a lot more damage to you than expected. Try to stay just far enough that if he lands a Q on you, you won't be punished hard (much of his damage will be from landing multiple hits of his E).”
Nightblue33 says “Really easy pre 6. Easy to dodge his abilities with your e. You need to establish dominance early because once he gets his core, then you will have hard times. Silence can also be really annoying. Watch the animation for it and you can dodge it.
BearRider says “AP offtank Cho´Gath is beast. True dmg, heavy CC, Silence, bigger range, AOE skills. Your W will not help so much in teamfights. At the start he is killable. You are relatively safe when you buy some MR and HP, but .. it is hard to dodge his Silence and following Q. You have to waste E alot which and you have to wait long time for another.”
Polkadog says “Early-game, he can harass you very well. Just keep your distance and try to last hit minions with your Q and then summon them and throw E at him. This forces him to back off a little so you can farm for a second.
Later on, as he'll try to trade with you, hit him with your W and back off since you're not powerful enough just yet. When you get your R ready, don't pop it immediately. Wait until you've landed W on him, follow that with R, E, Q and AA. Now you've forced him to retreat and as he does: FARM! This is your chance to farm if you haven't got enough gold to buy Phage. When you have at least 1250 gold, go back and buy phage. While you're going back, if he gets to your turret, I'd suggest you teleport and stop him. Don't leave the lane if he has pushed far enough or if he's full hp.”
Chromuro says “It's difficult to understand which build he will go: if he goes full AP, it will destroy you and you need to level up first Q+you'll need some MR early; if he goes full tank, you'll need to level up first E+some early damage. If you fail to understand which build he will go, it'll be pure hell.”
Rhinoface says “Dominates you in the early laning phase, after 6, if you have nashor's and stack conqueror before you ult, you should win.
If you're about to be eaten, try E'ing behind yourself to push him away from you. ”
Aizo says “Cho'gath and Maokai are both fairly weak in the earlygame with the edge slightly to cho'gath in terms of the 1v1. However maokai is much more able to setup ganks for his jungler making this a very good matchup to get your jungler some free kills”
SoulHero says “Annoying matchup as he just heals everything up with passive, get dorans shield and second wind if hes just gonna poke you. Don't really fight him unless you can chunk him or all in kill him. Just out cs him and you outscale him hard.”
notlmaze says “This Dinosaur stands close to zero chance when you go Fleet to maintain health just equal to his passive. True damage will destroy him but be careful of his Q, nothing else only the knockup and the slow is annoying, any other abilities have close to no effect when fleet is in play.”
Vodka4Gaben says “Very easy lane just like Sion except at level 6. He has an execute ulti which will kill you at about 300 hp so be careful with that, but you should still win the lane majority of the time.”
Petethebossch says “Can pressure you early on stacks with his q and scales to be a monster but you win the 1v1 hard post 6 if you don't fall behind. Also can be ganked if the jungler has a dash to dodge the q.
HarryCao says “Cho is one of those champions where you have to suppress him or he will get annoying to kill. After a trade he will most likely heal some back from his passive thats why you have to always be engaging and zoning him off. dodging his Q is essential to winning this lane. Keep in mind his 6 will do atleast 300 so don't go in if you think you can't kill him without falling that low in hp.”
PhoenixianSlayer says “He has high damage and long range pokes. They are dodgeable, but they can be annoying. His ultimate is your biggest concern though. You can't let him get close in an all-in, or he will deal a ton of true damage and kill you. Also, pokes make less of an impact since he can heal by killing anything. ”
Lynboe says “Commencer avec le Bouclier de Doran et prendre Second Wind rend son début de match très difficile.
Si vous parvenez à gérer correctement vos vagues de creeps, vous pouvez lui courir dessus, car une fois sur lui, sa seule issue possible est de toucher son Q, si vous l'esquivez c’est la garantie de lui faire utiliser ses summoner spells ou de le tuer. Assurez-vous de prendre Conqueror pour rendre ce match presque impossible à perdre en un contre un.”
Jnewbringspain says “Cho is a diffciult matchup, but not impossible. Much of this matchup is opportunity based. Do not leap in and engage, you will lose that trade. Instead, wait for him to try rupture on you. Dodge it, then consider going in. If he recently used his vorpal spikes and misses rupture, you now have the advantage. ”
Necrops says “This guy will tear you apart. He have way more damage than you, sustain and once he begin to stack armor you are done. I played 2 times, once as Pantheon, once as Cho'Gath, always the Cho'Gath Won. Just play safe, his damage output is insane.”
Zofia the Fierce says “Using your spin and abusing his lack of mobility spells, you can easily win over a Cho'Gath- however, you have to avoid the damage he can output with his spells- therefore, it's best to know what he does before you fight him.
You may go for Hexdrinker, but it shouldn't be necessary.”
Devitt45 says “This match up can go either way. Just avoid his Rupture and try to dodge his scream, and you should be fine to trade, just don't no near him if you are low unless you saw him eat a minion in the last 50 seconds.”
Zestysquid says “Basically if you don't kill him before he gets 6 you probably won't ever during laning. Ask for a gank before that happens since it's a bit of a Nasus like situation. Occasionally they will try to flash ult you, which can be beneficial if you have boxes, but you have to be extremely careful because of the burst.”
Jnewbringspain says “Definitely winnable early on. Eventually he will become too tanky to kill by yourself, but early on Cho has to worry about mana problems. Engage with E when your passive is up, land a quick two or three basic attacks with your Q, then run away and try to dodge his Rupture. Early on this trade will go in your favor, but he will have a large advantage after he gets some mana and level 6.”
Prince Afghan says “Cho'gath has good sustain just like you but doesn't have much damage. Grab Mercury Treads early to reduce his silence and slows and his overall damage. Your all in is stronger than his and you should be able to split very well.”
mahlightning says “dodge his q with your e if you have too. He has no escape you have more CC and more damage than him. Once he gets ult he's going to start getting hefty just make sure you farm your HP should get high enough he can't do anything. ”
RainbowNova says “Cho'Gath is one of the more annoying champions to play against as Teemo. Not only do you not have that much damage when going Tank on Teemo, but Cho'Gath's CC is very annoying to deal with. The worst part is if he's going AP/Tank hybrid, causing his ultimate to do lots of damage. I suggest poking him tons early and then playing very safe past lvl 6.
Honestly I'd just not even pick Tankmo against this guy.”
Lil Tidepod says “Cho'Gath doesn't really do much damage late game, as long as he's building tank. If he's good, he'll probably hit quite a few Q's, and he'll use his own Q when you're charging yours. His silence can be irritating if you have a situation where you've slowed him with E to get a nice Q on him, but Cho'Gath overall is more of just an annoyance than a threat. Watch out for his ultimate stacks, though: because he can and will become tankier than you if the game goes on long enough. He can heal off his passive, but as long as you play it smart he won't be able to push past you after your first tank item.”
ImpossibleLogic says “Cho'Gath really depends on who is playing him. Generally speaking, Cho'Gath will loss to Aatrox if non his abilities land. If you can dodge his E and Q combo, kite around, and keep him in one place you win.”
Nicram says “Cho'Gath is a champion who counters Urgot because of his sustain. This will be a farm lane but you have to respect his damage which doesn't seem to be enough to kill you but if you don't pay enough attention he will surprise you with his burst. In this lane your goal shouldn't be to kill him so you can focus on other things that I will describe later. Remember that you can easly time your E anytime he uses Q to counter it and move during CC. However, if fight is in melee range, he can use W before Q and prevent you from being able to use E. Keep this in mind.
- Corrupting Potion - the only valid item for this matchup. Cho'Gath will outsustain you anyways but thanks to this item you will decrease the gap in a better way than if you went for Doran's type of item.
- Cull - is acceptable but not as a first item, you can buy it after Corrupting Potion to increase the health sustain while keeping mana sustain at a solid level. Your gold income will be greatly improved and there is not high enough risk of death not to build it.
- Executioner's Calling - If you want to be agressive and look for a kill then it's a great item to buy against Cho'Gath. Remember to use Q or Autoattack right before he wants to last hit minions so you reduce the heal amount he gets from them.
- Null-Magic Mantle (Spectre's Cowl) [Adaptive Helm] - Cho'Gath deals a lot of magic damage and if you are too tanky for him then he'll use his ult for minions instead of on you. Add some Health to the MR that you have and you should be able to farm well and scale up.
- Don't try to fight him unless you plan to kill him in the early game. Just scale up and you'll be as strong or even stronger than Cho'Gath in the later phase of the game.
- Take runes that will allow you to scale up such as Conditioning, Overgrowth, Transcendence or Gathering Storm. ”
Brentard says “Iv'e never seen anyone say that Cho is a counter to Garen but I feel like he is. Cho's E positioning can cause a surprising amount of damage early on. And his execute has a larger range and a quicker animation. Try to dodge the knock ups, W his E spikes, and if you are going to ult make sure you have the upper hand. cause he will eat you while your sword is in the ground and walk away like "Deal with it".”
DrMoneybags says “This ugly bug can be a real pain with his %HP damage and true damage execute. But as long as you take conqueror and E past his knockup, he's not too bad of a matchup early on. Just don't let him knock you up when you're dismounted or you're going to die. Grabbing a BotRK lategame might help you rip through his ridiculous HP.”
Big Boy Matty D says “Difficult to stick to because of his Q and E.
He can all in you if he pokes you down because of true damage on ultimate.
Try to let him push in early levels and ask for ganks between level 3 and 9.
If he stacks his ultimate and gets too much health just try to roam and make plays instead of fighting him, only returning to catch minions under tower.”
Maverickov says “Out-damages you after level 2 and out-sustains you as well. His ult executes you and negates your ult at 6. Do not feed, and once you get spirit and boots, you kite him and whittle him down until you can all in.”
LosAngeloser says “He can easily burst you down early and is pretty much immune to poke. You can go comet or grasp against him, depending on your confidence level. You want to build health against him asap.”
ElleryTheViking says “Once you learn this matchup it's relatively easy. Wait for him to overextend, dodge his knockup and then move in for the Q and E spam. Your grasp procs are important in this matchup to level out Chogaths inherent tankiness. If he extends to your tower when you have full health, if you ghost ult, there is no escape for him. ”
SynergyXO says “Chogath match up, Dodge his knock up, and dont let his empowered autos hit you while he is farming wave. if you want to all in spin behind him after he uses knock up. and orb walk back to his tower so he has to use next knock up on you IN FRONT of him, and he wont get out of melee range before you can move again(if you dont dodge) dont miss ult due to his nom. i prefer to abuse him harshly after he ults a minion.”
E61K says “Trade with him whenever you can. Since Cho'Gath is a traditional tank you shit on him hard. Make sure to extend the trades as long as you can and zone him off of farm. Don't let him get any CS because his passive gives him unmatched sustain in lane.”
SwiftOblivion says “Strengths: True Damage, Tanky, AP, Silence. Weaknesses: Low Mobility, Health Stacks, Predictable knock up. Be sure to poke Cho'Gath down often to wither down their HP. Be sure to parry the knock up because it’s his main form of engage and start for his combo of silencing you afterwards. You could also Riposte his ultimate Feast, which could certainly turn a fight into your favor but this is very difficult to do. His base damage is a bit high but the same goes for most tanks. Once you hit your two item power spike you can deal with him easily so don't feel to pressured to kill him early. Same for most tanks.”
Suthafru says “Cho'Gath - Cho'Gath cant compare to your early game poke, he will be unable to cs or fight back as you zone him out of lane
but beware, once he builds a fair amount of armor, your damage will heavily fall off, once you stop doing damage its best to play back until you have the attack speed to properly kite him.”
Saiyan02 says “When Cho´gath wastes her stun. you can most likely all in her early level and get an easy kill lead. The thing is you need to win early on because otherwise Chogath will scale so much better than you”
Proxxecube says “Cho'Gath is typically an easy match, as his cc's are very easy to predict, and his knock-up literally gives you a few seconds to stop it or get out of the way. I prefer to parry the silence, and dash out of the knock up, but it depends your cooldowns and how strong he is.”
polarehare says “Basically you but with a sh*ttier ult and better access to cc and range. I advise you play safe against him and try to ambush him from bushes, if you try to get close t him he will airborne cc you to hell, but when you do somehow get close to him he's mostly yours.”
Bakiraka says “Pretty easy lane. You can poke him pretty freely, but you can't kill him. Just make sure to dodge his silence and knockup and the lane is yours. Watch out late game, and make sure to slow him so he doesn't eat you”
Trixelkour says “Percent Health Damage in general beat you if you go for a tank build. So just farm and harass with Grasp or Comet. DO NOT BRING Dark Harvest, you're just wasting time since he's so tanky. Get more AP than the amount of HP you usually get for Swain, with Liandry's being the core.”
heyitsRainex says “Easily punishable matchup as his only source of massive damage is E. His R would be scary only if you let him stack via kills/minions. Keep poking him and deny his CS so he can't regen from his passive.”
E61K says “This guy is a problem for Yasuo in lane. Pre-6 he is not a big issue but post-6 he is very dangerous in lane. He outsustains you if you don't build any sustain and his ultimate is very dangerous for Yasuo since Yasuo has low base health. He has an AOE silence which he can use to deny you your E in order to dodge his knockup. If he snowballs on you you are gonna have a rough time. However if you snowball on him you can turn the outcome of this lane around. Look to fight him after your core and some HP item like Mallet. Edit: Conqueror makes this matchup a easier now.”
undeadsoldiers says “Cho’gath - Conqueror
Early items (in order) - Phage, Boots (Mercs if he's ahead), Tiamat
- All in lvl 1-2 (passive stacked)
- Play aggressive in the early lane phase (lots of all ins with passive stacked)
- Wait for him to use vorpal spikes on wave before trading
- Zone him off minions (to keep him from recovering health)
- Bait his silence with your autos (best if passive stacked)
- Trade when his silence is on cooldown
- Your lvl 6 is stronger (if the fight starts even)
- Play safe around his feast, increasingly so as the game progresses
- Blade of the Ruined King as a 3rd or 4th item can help deal with his tankiness
- Ult cooldown: 80”
BreadyToCrumble says “Take the "Cut Down" rune from the precision tree, it'll help with Cho'Gath's tankiness. As long as you can dodge his airborne ability you should be good. Poke him with W and you can get some health back if you need it in lane, and because he's tanky you'll get a lot of health :)”
ReformedLavahit says “Cant kill past 6 , careful. He can destroy you if he is good.Fight as much as you can early in order to make him killable post 6. Fight enough to deny him xp and gold just dont die to him. ”
Zachlikespizza says “His silence, knock up, and raw health make him extremely hard to kill aswell as the ever looming threat of his ult when your ult is about to wear off. Just make sure to kill yourself before your ult ends and disengage.”
TakeLPlease says “Cho'gath is very tanky late game. Take advantage of his health and armor early game. His armor and health will be so high to the point where it is hard to even damage him. He also has a knockup which can stop your ultimate and brush hop.”
Trixelkour says “Chunks you out with his skill, but should be able to win in a 1v1. Dodge skill appropriately and all-in after the silence. Conqueror can mess him up during late game. Adaptive should be enough to deny part of his damage.”
LivesforOnlyOne says “Slow, lumbering tank. He never stood a chance. Conqueror isn't necessary to take in order to kill him and Grasp is not needed at all. Take Klepto and satisfy your own greed. Keep up constant pressure, not allowing him to utilize his passive and heal to safety. Riposte his Rupture knockup for the easiest stun of your life and all in him. Constantly.”
CaioOP1985 says “This beast is pretty dangerous against anything who isn't a tank, but Nasus is inherently hard to kill, so if you force him to waste his abilities you should have a pretty easy time, since he won't be able to kill you or you him, so use the time to farm.”
JefferXpr3ss says “I personally do not think Cho is a problem for Ornn, Cho'Gath really does not have enough damage to kill Ornn early making laning phase very easy for you. In late-game you still outscale Cho'Gath very well.”
Dacnomaniak says “His damage isnt anything to worry about. Keep the pressure on him to prevent him from sustaining back to full HP and you should be fine. Watch out for ganks, his ult will still destroy you.”
Cyti says “More deadly than you think since he can sustain in the lane and has powerful wave clear. He can one shot you with Q+E+W+Ult if he builds even the slightest amount of AP, so be careful once he has ult. Unless it's on CD, don't auto poke him. I would consider getting ”

Tips Against Cho'Gath in Middle Lane Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors
V1kt0r555 says “[Start: Corrupting Potion] [Spell: Teleport][Dodge his Q][Farm lane]”
Xelikari says “ Take First Strike in this matchup, Cho doesn’t really have the tools to kill you and you can zone him early on. Start Doran’s Ring and Flamespitter first, make sure you dodge his Q if he skills that, otherwise you outdamage his W. Don’t chase him too far and trade autos with his minions, just poke safely and shove for two. After level 3-4 you can force trades whenever possible.
Your build is going to be dependent on the other champions in the match, and less so on Cho’Gath. I would recommend just going Sorc Shoes into Rocketbelt unless the game demands something else. After 6 just be aware of his ult execute and gank potential, you probably have killed him by then so roaming if you’re mid would be a good idea, otherwise just farm and poke and try to kill him.
Callmebee says “For the darkness you say? How about... BY THE LIGHT! You shouldn't have problems against Cho if you keep your distance, but you can't kill him either. Consider a void staff early and Magic penetration boots or MR boots if you're struggling and the enemy is heavy CC oriented. You will run into some trouble after level 6, however keep your max distance and farm/poke, dodge his Q and you will be absolutely fine. Take Barrier.”
TcKatfish says “[Press The Attack Runes / Long Sword and Refillable Pots start.] Cho'Gath has only one win condition to survive lane and that's if he hits you with Q. Dodge Q and you will win by kiting him out when he tries to walk up to proc his E. Post 6 the threat of being hit by Q amplifies.”
lonestar1870 says “You get prio any time you want early game and can hard out poke him. Just make sure to dodge his Q's.
He has a lot of sustain due to his passive and is pretty tanky so it can be hard to kill him. Play for a CS advantage, plates, and to get your jungler ahead.
You can still kill him if you get him low enough (especially if he's AP Cho).
He has good gank setup if he lands his Q, so be careful.
Build Liandries if he builds tank and go Luden's if he's AP.
I like Phase Rush in this matchup so I can escape if he does get onto me, but you can go Electrocute.
I prefer Teleport in this matchup but Ignite is still okay.”
Desperate Nasus says “The matchup is fair, both of you have sustain, due to the passive. As Nasus try not to walk up for cs on the first levels .His damage is quite underestimated in the early game. He has everything to punish you. If he uses Arcane comet instead of Grasp, the matchup is way easier. You can duel him 150 stacks with Sheen and Boots of lucidity.”
itakute says “AP cho mid is hard, cho'gath top is a lot easier, just focus on dodging his Q and all in him early. Level 6 hes really strong so you can only fight if you hard outraded him before hand or if he misses everything.”
KafueLechwe says “This is the AP variant of Sion. If Cho builds a Demonic Embrace, its burn will do more damage to you than your Titanic Hydra. You can stack HP more, but Cho'gath can just out-duel you. Just be wary because although in teamfights you're almost the same champion, the fact that Cho might have a Demonic Embrace puts him as a major threat.
Although if you want to play a off meta jungle tank chuncks and isn't Sion, Cho'gath is a good option.
Plus I want to see a Chu-chu-chu-chu'gath skin with him as like a train conductor. I don't know why.”
WayOfTheTempesst says “Tank Cho'Gath is a lot easier than AP Cho'Gath. He is very susceptible to ganks, so try to freeze
the wave at your tower and call for jungle help. Always keep moving when he silences you to dodge his Q. Use
your W when he Ws you. Dodge his E poke as well. If you ever see him ult, you can win the all-in. If he has
ult, do not try to all-in him.”
WayOfTheTempesst says “Tank Cho'Gath is a lot easier than AP Cho'Gath. He is very susceptible to ganks, so try to freeze the wave at your tower and call for jungle help. Watch out for his Q and wait out his E. Try to abuse him before he hits level 6. This is the only time he can ever win an all-in against you. Always keep moving when he silences you to dodge his Q. Fight him when you have shield so he can't one shot you.”
Katawina52 says “In the long run Cho will always win cuz of his sustained passive. This is why u should always look for hard all in's once you're level 2/3+. This matchup is gonna depend enterily how u play the all in. For example at level 3 with ConQ you can kill him depending if he's pushing or not (U always want Cho to push so u can always look for the all in) If u go for the all in make sure he doesn't hit all his spells on you, u can make it easier by waiting for him to use Q/W or E on minions or waste to poke on you then u can also look for an all in and it should be easier. Mercs vs cho is really good if more ccs elsewhere.”
Hullos says “CC, sustain, enough dmg to kill after 6. The only upside is that he is easy to poke and if you can force him off minions then he losses his sustain and you win the lane. After 6 he can almost one shot you so watch out if the lane is even or worse.”
Yeager says “You rarely see this guy midlane even though he can be pretty strong. AP Cho'gath has a lot of burst, so you want to focus on dodging his Q. It's the only way he can gap close (without flash) and engage. Banshee's veil is great since it counters his surprise engages.
Remember that AP cho doesn't care as much about stacking his ultimate. He can use it to burst you early on with his entire combo.
You can bully him a lot early game since he can't really defend himself, and you also outscale him really hard. ”
Akali187 says “Just a big tank. Don't target Cho'Gath unless he is building AP. Cho'Gath is a grand tank, try to take out the squishy's around him and watch for his abilities. If he is fed his ult will one shot you, other than that just care for his silence and knock up in the team fights.”
Yasukeh says “Chogath has little he can do to stop you from running him down. Bait out his [[Rupture]] and he is a free kill. Very useful lane to try to freeze in, since he is very unsafe without a tower to protect him. ”
Dr Eggmund says “Dodge his knockups and try and stand behind your minions. In trades you should win but don't fight when your too low as he will ult and gobble you to bits. Careful of his silence late game as it will allow the enemy to shred you in teamfights.”
iZianni says “The more he eats, the easier he is to hit. The silence is annoying but as long as you're constantly moving (You can cast while moving, this is a really simple lane.) Perma farm or tank and spank.”
Ambitieux says “Although Cho should seem easy, he does have a few tricks with silence. Play around this and try not to be to in his face. Poke him out with mostly autos under turret and have his lane pushed in. ”
Kune ML says “This guy is some real pain in the a** . Once he reach level 6 . Try shutting him down ASAP or you will be useless with him from mid-game to go . Make as much lane pressure as possible . Run ignite so you can shutting him down faster”
richardlized says “Chogath is a pick a lot of people take against Zed but it isn’t really a hard matchup for Zed. His Q is telegraphed and easily dodgeable, and you out range his kit. He is also very squishy early game, which means that you can hit free WEQs on him and farm for free. If there is a Q that you can’t really dodge by moving, try WEQWing the Chogath in order to damage him and dodge the Q. Once he uses his silence, it’s just a free kill post 6. Keep in mind don’t stay in lane if you are low, because Chogath can flash combo you and execute with R. After he gets his armor, It’s harder to kill him so you have to impact map with roams. If he goes AP he is retarded.
Nanelol says “Cho in a duel loses nearly always as you can dodge his Q's with E1 and his silence does not last long enough to one shot you. In this matchup sylas out scales cho as he can use his ult to scale his HP and become a menace to enemies team.”
Aethlo says “Cho'Gath has a slight wave clear advantage. ||
Cho'Gath loses pre-3 (Annie has to dodge his knock-up which should be pretty easy if you're expecting it) ||
Cho'Gath loses pre-6 ||
Cho'Gath is at a slight disadvantage post-6. ||
Cho'Gath out scales Annie. ||
TIP: Although rare - Cho'Gath mid usually builds AP - meaning you will get one-shot level 6 and above if he gets into melee range. This is why dodging his knock-up and keeping your advantage - being your ranged one-shot - is very important. Therefore it is recommended to rush sorc shoes for the movement speed (also helps one-shot the squishy AP Cho'Gath).
Kirito OTP Xerath says “Rara vez me enfrente con Cho'Gath en Mid, pero si el sabe aplicar bien su CC será un problema, juega fuera de su rango al menos hasta obtener tu primer objeto, fuera de eso, mantente full pocke en lo que farmeas ”
Little Planet says “Cho is both melee and immobile, which makes him extremely easy to poke down and zone from the wave. If he's going tank you can't kill him eventually, if he goes AP you'll be able to wreck him for the rest of the game.
Shove waves and roam. don't waste your time mid.”
ahspaghetti says “You can look for short trades with your harass, and try to deny him cs as he will heal a lot by killing minions. his passive allows him to have incredible sustain in lane, so look for an all in at lvl3 -5, once he hits 6, you want to avoid fighting this guy, once you are low enough, you are dead.”
peytonqt says “[EASY/MEDIUM] [PR/Conqueror] [Tear] As Cho'gath is a tank it'll be a boring lane. Don't get agressive because he will easily outtrade you, especially with the new buffs. Just sit back and farm up and get that tear stacked. Build one armor pen item and 2 if its really needed.”
The Jhin Cena says “Take the Fleet Footwork Scaling Runes if you both are mid, and take the Conqueror Scaling Runes if you both are top. Most games, Cho'Gath should be an easy lane for you. His Q is very easy to dodge with Fleet Footwork, and he can't do anything if you jump on him with your E. His only threat is his silence, since it can prevent you from snapping back with your E, and his ultimate since it is a brainless click ability that will 1 shot you if you are too low of health. However Cho'Gath will rarely ever be able to get you low enough health to ult you unless he has his JG with him or you're letting his poke hit you, so overall you should be able to easily win this lane. Cut Down is also a great pick, especially if they have at least 1 other tank since Cho'Gath's ultimate gives him a ton of health over the course of the game. ”
pavelp420 says “He is really tanky, does quite a bit of damage. However, you are more mobile and after you build Lich Bane and Nashors, your burst will be very high, and you could kill him if he isn't fed.”
Hiimkata says “In the long run Cho will always win cuz of his sustained passive. This is why u should always look for hard all in's once you're level 2/3+. This matchup is gonna depend enterily how u play the all in. For example at level 3 with ConQ you can kill him depending if he's pushing or not (U always want Cho to push so u can always look for the all in) If u go for the all in make sure he doesn't hit all his spells on you, u can make it easier by waiting for him to use Q/W or E on minions or waste to poke on you then u can also look for an all in and it should be easier. Mercs vs cho is really good if more ccs elsewhere.”
KataTocDo says “He will beat you later into the game when he gets items. If he is Ap Cho, you beat him early, but if he is going tank you just have to roam with your jungler.
Starting Items: D. Blade”
invalidd says “Should win most trades if he doesn't land his Q, don't let him abuse his regen from passive (constant trading), abuse roam timers vs chogath
since it's hard for him to keep up. Easy to setup ganks on.
Aikairi says “You dumpster him as long as you dodge his skillshots, which is easy. Try getting 3 points into E so you can have enough time to dodge most of his skills. Be careful of his ult tho, it deals alot of damage. ”
Scyrine says “you win this lane but you might not win game if it's dragged out. Once you hit lvl 3 play agro and try to get good trades. When he has 6 only engage him when you know you're going to win.”
Chili Dog says “if you're cleaner than michael jackson dodge his silence with your pool, if not just dodge his slowing aa and his knockup, rush cdr and CONSTANTLY POKE NON STOP. Phase Rush recommended. ”
SkellyBirb says “Cho'Gath is quite tanky and has a silence and crowd control. He'll also build up a ton of health over he course of the game. Demonic Embrace and Riftmaker against him is better than burst.”
Elhypersnyper says “Should you still be in mid game vs Cho'Gath mid you're practically effed. You do little to no damage vs Cho, he can eat you instantly, he's tanky as hell and if you don't take AP resist vs AP Cho you're effed and if you don't take AD resist vs Cho you're effed.
It's rare to see a Cho mid so when you do take AP resist, as he will most likely build AP I would say 90% chance of him going AP.
When it's a Cho top its going to be hard in team fights as you do little damage. I recommend building Morello's and Void Staff for him. ”
WolfRider01 says “He can definitely be a pain to lane into sometimes, however that being said the Kraken slayer build works decently against him. Avoid his knockup, ask for ganks if he starts winning. Take TP summoner. ”
Katfire says “You don't see Cho'Gath in mid often, but when you do, you will cry. He takes less and less damage as the game goes on. (this might've changed with S11 since you can build BORK as a core item now. I will update this when I face enough Cho to form a new opinion)
Cho'Gath is extremely good against Katarina. He can silence you to ensure you cannot use your E to dodge his Q. His Q cd is surprisingly low, 7 seconds without Ability Haste. The biggest threat of all on Cho'Gath will be his R. He will be able to point and click execute you for half your health bar in midgame, or even slightly more if he is really ahead. You want to keep your distance from Cho in teamfights or try to catch him before fights happen with your team.”
Crypper says “It is sustained on the line, which complicates the constant poke, and after getting 6 LVL, it all depends on your microcontroller. But as long as you play with an advantage, you have to give your team an advantage as well.”
TheCatOfCheshire says “In early game you destroy him. Poke him with AA, dodge his q , and wait a last hit to charm him. If you can kill him 2 or 3 times, you're going to win. But if not, he'll become to tanky to be killed and your game will be hard. Again, you're a better roamer so use it.”
Yeager says “AP Cho Gath: Poke him a lot with autos and aery procs. In the laning phase you have to focus on dodging his Q ability which is a knockup + slow. If he hits you once, he will combo and oneshot you. Get banshee's after luden's echo so he can't catch you off-guard.
He is a immobile melee champ, so if you manage to dodge his Q, then it's easy from there. Respect his burst though after 6, especially if he has flash and ignite. ”
xAsuta says “Skill matchup. Xin Zhao has to much all in potential for him to handle but a good Cho'Gath knows how to counter that. All in him and get an early advantage before he gets lvl 6 and gets his true damage. ”
Yuki H. says “Early game shouldn't be too much of a problem. Since he is melee as well, farming isn't too difficult in this case. Just watch for his E which can poke you down slowly. He starts winning trades if he lands his knock-up or silence in lane. Overall an annoying matchup since he dishes out damage while being tanky. Look for roams.”
Veralion says “HoB/DH, Long Sword/Dark Seal. AP Cho'gath is a very potent cheese pick to be feared and respected. Because of his ridiculous burst potential and low mobility, he is most frequently run mid over top. You will never be able to poke him down through his passive, so don't even try. Keep your distance and don't let him E slow you, which will force you to take his Q and W. Just farm it out until 6. After 6, you CANNOT get hit by Rupture. He will flash on you and kill you from full with his 1.0 scaling ult. You MUST flash or ult away if his Q might hit you. Save your W to dodge this one hit kill ability. I'll say it again; AP Cho's combo kills you from 100% health, and I've got the matchup at even because of how unforgiving the lane is. They will frequently push in at this point and fish for those instant death Q hits. Call your jungler while he's doing so and he should go down easy. Don't just ult at him without backup, as a good Cho will put his Q under your landing position and nom you. At some point, he will give up trying to kill you and will just use his ult on a creep to start stacking health. That's when it's safe to go for him, force a back, and regain lane priority. As long as you don't get hit by his Q while he has his ult available, you'll outscale him and contribute much more in fights than he could ever dream of doing.
Haven't had the chance to run Hail into him yet, his auto slow into combo may make trading unwise. Would be way more gank assist for an immobile champion though, probably worth taking. ”
Zoe Sparklepop says “Annoying especially if they're running Glacial
Knock up, silence, slows for days, true damage, health stacking, he's just not fun to play against.
You'll need to dodge his Q to survive and you should be good, probably get MR boots early to reduce his slows.
When his Q is down, you can carefree poke him down with yours until he gets his Q back then be wary again.”
The PaIe King says “Sustain Karth

snukumz says “If you can dodge his pop up then this is a really easy lane.
If he pops you up then he can hurt you a lot, or eat/kill you at 6.
If you knock him up and dodge his pop up, then you can combo him and kill him.
If he builds super tank then you won't be able to kill him by yourself mid/late game. ”
nguyenbautroi says “Cho'Gath is hard to deal with because 1) His passive is hard to counter with your ult
2) His W can cancel your Q and your combo
But if you dodge his Q, you can have a good trade with him by E Q”
LightningTemplar says “Play safe and farm with Q and W+E. His sustain is too good and pokes too hard to go near. Eventually he'll also be too tanky to kill. He can easily Q once you ult which leaves you very vulnurable, so avoid ulting when he has Q up. ”
Gageowago says “Basically impossible lane in my experience. If the Cho is good he will q you when you go for cs and then combo you for half your health. Also cannot be poked down because he heals so much from farming. Very annoying regardless of Cho's skill generally so call for a jungler gank.”
topal says “this muchup favours cho.His W is rly strong and if you try to all in him he will q onto him so you can't get melee range.Try your best to doodge his q and all in him if he uses it.Poke with q but his passsive give him insane sustain.”
serruh says “melee champion, just look to dodge rupture and you are good to go. wouldn't recommend poking him, as his passive will just heal him back up to full, but you can def just shove for free and scale”
t3rminated says “You literally just bully cho’gath so, so hard. You shouldn’t be hit by any of their abilities if you position correctly and react to their Q. They’re also super thicc so you can land your combo really easily. Make sure they can’t Q you out of your ultimate though.
LONERlSM says “If you dodge his q you are ok ap cho is a cheese pick and usually is not executed correctly however play to scale against this champion he has good wave clear and can heal out your dps.
EvilBird090 says “Cho'Gath can be surprisingly strong with a lot of AP, he has actually more oneshot potential than you have. If you get hit by his Q he is able to flash W+E+R Ignite and you are dead before you can go into pool, or do anything in fact. Try to pool his Q and buy Liandry's as he will have a lot of health later on. Be sure to be wary of his Q at any part of the game, if he Ws first you need to sidestep it. Otherwise you will outscale him and be more useful in teamfights. Cho'Gath will mostly rely on cheese killing your team and you so respect him and his damage so that won't happen too often.”
RagexAddict says “Chogath is not often seen in the mid lane anymore but I figured I'd make a quick guide for him. He's not too much of a threat seeing as you can move around through minions and other units with ease to dodge his abilities. The key to winning lane and snowballing against cho is to take him on early. If you can't do this safely either because of good positioning by cho or their jungler camping your lane, wait for jungle help or roam. Cho can't out roam a Fizz, so use that to your advantage.”
SrSuders says “Cho'Gath auf der Lane zu besiegen, ist ziemlich schwer.
Durch seine CC's hat er große Counter Möglichkeiten.
Auch wenn der Cho'Gath full AP geht, seine HP gehen aufgrund seiner Cho'Gath R in die Decke.
Das one-shoten nach Level 6 wird demnach schwer.”
PhoenixianSlayer says “He can't hurt you or stack properly if you stay out of his range. He will try to zone you on minions if he is aggressive. In that case, his roar can be annoying. Everything else is dodgeable. ”
OmegaSquadVeigar says “AP Cho'Gath is an interesting matchup (I know that you rarely ever see him being picked as an AP mid).
Early game he outshoves you and does more due to him having more damage and easier to hit spells.
After 6 he can just kill you from 100 to 0 if you aren't careful enough.
His silence and cc is really annoying to deal with.
Also his poke is really strong too with his Q having a 300 base damage (+1.0AP ratio).”
RemainingUchiha says “You can definitely poke him nicely, honestly , getting nashor's wouldn't be a bad idea vs Cho'Gath. But don't trade too much unless you want to go all in. He'll just heal all your damage.”
