“Fleet foot + resolve tree + doran's shield. Main goal of this laning phase is to not give him any kills. If needed, you can go for a vamp scepter right after you finished tier 2 boots for the sustain. Fizz is a good pick against champs like Yone who doesn't have reliable disengage. If he starts W level 1 then don't trade with him level 1 and just focus on poking him from a distance with Q. Lane is pretty easy until he gets level 6. At that point you want to have at least boots so you have a chance to dodge his ultimate. DO NOT use any of your engage abilities when his E is up. If you look for a fight, always bait out his E first. ”
“You shine before level 6 in this matchup. Full combo him every chance you get. You will win level 1-2 fights every time as long as he doesn't have a larger minion wave than you do. After level 6 play off of him missing his R and 2v1s. Dueling him post 6 is generally a bad idea. ”
“REACTIVE lane, not proactive - this means I need to wait for him to make mistakes rather than go for random trades, I only AA him from range as we farm. Won't use my spells unless I've previously baited out his E (he can be harassed level 1 with E-AA if he starts W). Before 6 when he tries to go in, I'll W and cast E around myself, but won't detonate it until he finishes his E cast. He will either go out of my E range and not deal damage, or deal less damage through my W than I deal with E-AA. After he uses his Q, I'll use mine too since there are no more mobility abilities left, but won't stick around for further AA trades. Ideally after 6 I dodge his R, but if I don't, I'll use my Barrier (or stopwatch if it's up), W+E myself, detonate after his E, AA+Q+R+AA and he should be dead.”
“Very easy to kill early, after he gets a few components and level 6 you need to watch out.”
“In my opinion, this is Pyke's worst matchup and my least favorite. Trading is relatively equal pre 6 so try to look for Q->HoB autos. Corrupting pot makes it hard to kill him so you will need ganks. Never E engage unless you know he didn't start E lvl 1. Fizz can easily kill you lvl 6, you want to constantly have your finger on E to dodge his R or else you will probably die. Letting him get ahead will make the lane unplayable and you will probably lose the game because he will contribute far more than you. Never try to R him unless you know for a fact his E is down and never all in him solo. Ganks are essentially the only way to kill a good Fizz. ALWAYS go hexdrinker in this matchup. You can take Doran's Blade or Longsword Refill if you're confident that you're better than him and can solokill them.”
“Make sure to buy zhonya or banshees first item. Activate zhonya when he has his ult on you. If the enemy team has alot of ap banshees is a good option too. You can poke him early levels. But make sure you manage your waves properly. Don't push him in too far when he has his r.”
“A hard match. Champion who can Dodge your abilities. If you stand against him, rush Zhonya. ”
“Fizz is a skill match up that is heavily favored for Fizz after he hits six. Be sure to buy life steal or MR against him. Save wind wall for his ult. ”
“>>>DO NOT USE YOUR Q UNTIL HE Es<<<
If you play Fizz, I automatically assume that you have a troubled home life and need to take it out on strangers over the internet.
build Zhonyas first item or you will get tower dived from 100% hp to 0 in half a second.
You can early abuse this match up, which is your only win con early but it is ultimately meaningless because the world favors fish.
Also a Verdant Barrier match up if you want.”
“Fizz easy to deal with pre-6 but after that it is imperative that you have at least tier 1 boots, preferably tier 2 to try and dodge his ult. Since Karthus stands far back to farm, this means fizz's ult can go far and get high damage on you. Plus, he can always E your ultimate. He makes a good ban!”
