Tips Against Gangplank in Top Lane Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors

WestRover says “odly less painful then teemo just wait out the storm till lane phase is over and try your best not to give him a lead, this is one of the worst matchups for kassadin in general you have to play with your jg and roam rather then fight the majority of the time so bring tp and exhaust ”

WoW NuB says “Hard to play against, you have to worry a lot about his barrels”
Teemo is OP.. by WoW NuB | Teemo Player
alexionut05 says “He will usually win lane simply due to his range and power projection. Try to break barrels with your passive, and when you all-in, a good idea is to push him out of any barrel range with your E (even if it doesn't stun). Buy armor.”
gazibulle says “Skill matchup; GP wins early, Camille hard cucks him on side lane. Both are scaling monsters. The Grasp nerf on Gangplank's Q has made the matchup so much bearable. Early levels you just want to survive his braindead Q poke by taking Dshield / Second Wind. Trade with W after he Qs you so you regen a bit of his damage. Keep in mind Gangplank is not a good champ early game, it's really his runes setup that makes the difference (Resolve Tree w. Bone Plating mostly). You can trade with E if you removed his Bone Plating, and he has his passive down (passive is up = sword is glowing). When Eing on him, make sure to destroy his barrels, or even try to fake hitting them if he just placed them. Bait his E by moving up and down, and if he doesn't take the bait try to run at his barrels and Q them since it gives you 50 more range. Your lvl 6 is mega deadly compared to his, if you manage to hit your E with both his Bone Plating and passive down, he's most likely dead as he has no escape. If he takes First Strike, he is a shed early game and has no kill pressure. Also keep in mind that Gangplank is very gankeable as he has no escape but a cleanse on a 22s CD.”

Bigfella0117 says “annoying, but avoid his barrels and he becomes only slightly stronger than a cannon minion”

Gassid says “Il est dur de prendre des CS sans prendre de dégâts (tu peux start Bouclier de Doran). Il est possible d'esquiver les dégats de ses barils avec ton R”
Camille Guide [FR] by Gassid | Camille Player
Agatrium says “Somewhat of a skill matchup, but he definitely has a lot of poke which makes it slightly favored on his side. If they take First Strike instead of grasp, you'll almost always win the all in unless you face tank his barrels. Ignite him early in the fight since his W plus corrupting is a surprising amount of sustain.”

youmamaleftu says “Dodge his e and you will be fine. He is not early game so annoy him in early. If he goes first strike do not let him start the fight.”

LimitlessHavoc says “Doran shield and second wind is a must in this lane. The passive sustain helps you tank a few of his Qs. You can start E however I prefer to start Q and use the bushes to drop vision. Shield most of his Qs and passively sustain the ones that you can not. Level 6 you hard win the all in if you're not too behind and have enough distance to run him down.”
LimitlessHavoc's Top Lane Riven by LimitlessHavoc | Riven Player
Cryniu says “Compra botas de armadura rápido. No uses E si él tiene su W o úsalo si quieres solo hacer daño. Usa Q+W para anular algunos de sus balazos. Trata de apoyar con tu R si él usa la suya. Él no tiene nada para cancelar tu R. Trata de jugar en intercambios muy cortos y agresivos. Casi no sirve la tenacidad contra gangplank, aquí te recomiendo solo llevarla en las runas o no usarla.”

KeNaNFoR says “Too much AD, in the early stages will force you to leave the mid for other lines, where you will be kicked out in a bad case”

Bundif says “A good GP is really annoying. He can play around his Grasp of the Undying proc and Q you off cooldown. You have to play like a weeny for a long time until you can all in lvl 3 and hope to spook him off and PRAY he doesn't know how to land a decent barrel combo.”
DaffeLaffe says “ayo, this guy is annoying with his gunshots! Nah, rush arm seekers, so his poke doesn't deal too much damage. But look for an all-in level six.”
V1kt0r555 says “[Start: Corrupting Potion] [Spell: Teleport or Exhaust or Ignite][Don't get poked too much by his Q and avoid his barrels][Build Zhonya's Hourglass]”
Juon says “He can constantly poke you especially if he goes grasp its so disgusting. If he runs full damage / crit you can one shot him, dodge barrels and you will be fine. Max W or E second.”

DabiDabi says “Grasp GP can be pretty annoying. Dodge his barrels, and punish him if he uses his Q too much since it uses a lot of mana.”
V1kt0r555 says “[Start: Corrupting Potion] [Spell: Teleport or Ignite] [Use your Q whenever he Q's on you so you can negate his damage] [Watch out of his barrels] [Warn your team when he is lvl 6]”
Fake Supp says “unplayable if you see one in mid just dodge or you are doomed ”

ChrisWasTaken says “Don't let him Q you for free, wait for his passive to die down before trading. 2-4 depending on elo and if Gp is skillful.”

ThePieBeam says “GP's got the schmovement and range, with the damage to back it up. Thankfully it's very situational so as long as you can keep his barrels cut down and/or keep the range far enough out it's still hard for him to run down the birb. That being said, his barrels can be hard to cut if he's really going for them and if you get hit, the slow can be extremely punishing. Try to play a little aggro after he uses his passive before his first back. Once he gets sheen try to take long fights at range so. If he's autoing you and you're barreled you're super dead so play around not letting that worst case scenario happen. Also, be sure to avoid getting Qed too much. Don't bother trying to abuse his melee unless you know he doesn't have Q up.”
