“Gangplank is fairly annoying because he can cleanse your ultimate with his fruit so you'll want to save your ultimate until after he fruits, people say Gangplank is a hard counter to Urgot but he never usually kills me solo in this matchup he is just annoying and safe which makes it hard to get any type of lead, you can auto and use your W to clear his barrels quickly, early lane is also kind of hard so don't get chunked out to much by eating to many free Q's.”
“Start E Doran's shield and look to farm. E his Grasp Q's and prioritise autoing his barrel's in trades. Not only is this where a lot of his damage comes from, he gets MS boost, you get slowed so autoing his barrels over him is extremely worth. Abuse poor positioning and look to all in with ult/CDR items. You win at 40-45%.”
“This is an iffy matchup and you might want to take Grasp runes. You can also take corrupting potions or dorans shield. His early game Q pokes with his grasp will hurt bad so you have to play around this. On his first back hes going to get sheen and do a TON of dmg from this point on. The only trades against him will be when you all in him with your full combo. Try to riposte barrels/ grasp Q/ passive burn, as these are the majority of his damage. If you use E to slow, wait for him to use an orange before riposte, and vice versa to make sure you keep him locked down. When he sits on a barrel, try to Q him and aa the barrel to disarm it and then go all in on him.”
“Avoid his barrels and hit him with Q.
He can get out of the stun by drinking potions.”
“Level 1 if he waste his passive on minions and you have full pasive you can beat him, try to use your q to dodge his barrels, this match up can be either easy or super hard depending on both players skills”
“Can get annoying with his Q poke and he can just escape your CC with his W. Optimal time to trade when his W is on cooldown.”
“A Good GP will put barrels under him and make it impossible to trade him. You may win 1v1s, but his team fights are much better. I ban him every time. Take Dorans Shield.”
“Hard matchup for Jax and annyoing to play against him, bully lane and can kite you easily. Get fast tabi. Your E blocks his Q remember about it, when you jump on him first the most important thing to do is destroy his barrel not AA on him. Call your jngler for help since its tough matchup and nothing to do if GP isn't really bad.”
“You can't CC him he can just cleanse it, he can poke from range with his barrels. Wait for ganks, build tanky, stun him when his cleanse is on CD. Play around your own CDs.”
“I recommend Fleet for this match-up, though PTA is better to punish GP in lane.
Electrocute is good too, but you must be better than GP to succeed with this.
If you take bad trades with Electrocute or PTA, you will have a tough laning phase.
The choice is yours, and if you are playing against Easier GPs in lower elos, then PTA/E-Cute will be the better choice to win lane easier.
I recommend Fleet overall against GP though because GP can sustain quite well with his corrupting pots in lane along with W, and he also has reliable poke that is a lock on ability with his Q.
If you run fleet, you can sustain his poke in lane.
Level 1 Gangplank has no pressure to out trade you, so use your vault aggessively.
If Gangplank ever Qs you, retaliate with Vault + many Auto Attacks to win the trade.
Since most GPs run corrupting pot, it's very important to keep tab on if he has the pots active.
To check if he has a corrupting pot active, click on Gangplank's character and on the top-left of the screen, it will show the corrupting pot timer under his name.
Do NOT trade with Gangplank while he has corrupting pots active because these consumables grant him more damage while active.
Your goal in the early laning phase is to get GP to consume all 3 corrupting pots as soon as possible, and every time he uses one pot, back off until it wears off before you go in for trades.
Level 3 onwards the lane gets really fun. The most important interaction is to practice dodging his barrel explosing with your E, Vault.
To do so, when Gangplank explodes a barrel, he will try to throw one in front of you to hit a Double/triple barrel combo.
The key to time this correctly is when Gangplank explodes his first barrel, immeditately retaliate with Vault, and if timed correctly, Quinn will dodge the explosions from the other barrels.
Master this mechanic and GP has no chance in lane.
If he misses his Barrels, immediately run him down and launch your whole combo on his to get a big trade win.
Ideally, you want to land your Q on Gangplank in lane first, and if you land it, go in for a quick trade becasue Gangplank cannot retaliate with his Q since it is a lock on ability, which means you will get a free trade in lane.
Even if you are behind in this lane guys, when you get 1-2 items, you will be able to 1v1 GP ALWAYS because your crit build will provide enough damage to destroy him.
All you need are 2 crit items and you will out DPS him in 1v1s.
GP is a bad 1v1 champ, and you can think of him as a poke AD caster mage.
He is quite squishy for the most part, which means our crit build will do wonders later on :)
Side Note: Gang plank can win level 1 if he plays it correctly.
The only GP player that I ever struggled with level 1 was Solarbacca, the best GP in the world, but most GP players wont do what he does.
If you see GP with ignite start, be careful of his level 1 cheese.
He will poke you 2 times with his Q, and then he'll flash forward to AA you, and this AA is his passive so he gets MS from it.
When you flash away, he'll ignite and then Q grasp you to kill you.
Overall, you hard win level 1, but if the GP plays like this, just be a little mindful of long trades early game.
Also, Solarbacca rushed bramble into me last time I vsed him, which was not fun lol.
If you see bramble GP, go Kraken rush and wait for 1-2 items.
You win 1v1 with 2 items no matter what.”
