“He is just hard to catch, because of fear and silence. Get legend: tenacity or merc treads against him.”
“Double abilities to interrupt poweball, wait for cooldowns before you roll. Pure cancer if playing against a good fiddle.”
“Fiddle is very annoying he doesn´t get low on hp when clearing his jungle because of his w - healing and you are not able to kill him because of his q - fear, I recommend ignoring fiddle and focus on your laners instead unless fiddle uses Q on the jungle camps (I recommend evoling R in this match up)”
“Silence and fear are difficult but afterwards just smack him dead.”
“[4/10] The first thing to take note of is that he can remove isolation with his trinket so don't get baited in without having that in mind. His clear speed is also something to watch out for so be sure to warn laners if he's able to arrive before you. His CC in the forms of a fear and silence shouldn't be underestimated especially with them maxing Q now.
There are opportunities where you'll have a level advantage on him but be unable to burst him in time due to his high armor per level and zhonyas itemization alongside his vast CC.
R evolve can help in this matchup to dodge his fear but your primary focus should be on picking him off before he gets to use his ult and not letting your team get snowballed in 5v5's from his ultimate. You can minimize this risk with proper warding and pings. ”
“The rework made Fiddle significantly weaker 1v1 before 6. He is probably the single weakest pre-6 duelist in the game. Even Shyvana can absolutely destroy him. Apply early pressure and don't be afraid to take camps away. If he tries to drain tank you like the good old days, just kill him. You substantially outdamage his heal so long as he isn't also eating a camp or a wave and you aren't already low on health (it does missing health damage now). Aside from that, his clear speed now surpasses even Graves, so make sure you don't fall behind in levels. While you have absolutely nothing to fear from him early and may play freely, once he hits 6 you will need to keep him in the back of your mind anytime you go for a play. Crowstorm makes Fiddle the strongest counterganking champion in the game, and overchasing a fleeing target or committing to a skirmish with incomplete vision control may get you and several teammates killed. Never towerdive unless you have the surrounding area lit up like Christmas and make sure your bot lane keeps their lane bushes warded in case he tries to set up a trap. After lanes end and big fights start happening, make damn sure you don't clump together and keep your flanks warded. Force plays while his ult is down, as it has a long cooldown and the game is 4v5 without it.
Ignite and Exhaust are both good here, one to fight him early and the other to shut down his teamfighting. Your call. ”
“VERY difficult match up. Fiddle can sustain your burst, and has many forms off CC to make it difficult to do much of anything before you die. His W drain also damages you even when ulting. Avoid this match up.”
“You lose all fights from early to mid game. Fiddlesticks's Bountiful Harvest (W) will always win him trades. Avoid him at all costs unless you are ahead or have teammates by your side.
It is recommended to go Shadow Assassin into Fiddlesticks. Build Edge of Night once you reach the late game and catch him out in his jungle. Your spell shield should block his fear and a full combo is enough to kill him. You will be able to force out his Zhonya's Hourglass at the very least.”
“Make sure to ward against him because if he catches you in his R you're pretty much dead because of his insane damage. Ward prio to ganking because you dont want to be surprised by his R which can easily wipe out your team”
“Fiddlesticks farms really quickly but does not duel you well. Try to be mindful of where he can ultimate from out of vision. That is the only thing you need to worry about.”
