Tips Against Heimerdinger in Middle Lane Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors

Curt Mcbeltpants says “I rarely see him mid but it's easy to just afk farm and outroam a heimerdinger. You will run a risk dahsing in to him if he has turrets up though”
A guide to S11 Chadlio midlane by Curt Mcbeltpants | Galio Player
eiensiei says “Level 1 I'll rush to lane and kill his little turrets as he places them if I can. Other than that, most of the laning phase is spent under tower for Lux and I focus on getting as much CS as I can. I avoid roaming in this match-up, as he won't follow and is going to push fast and get plates. This is not as much of a threat because of the kill pressure, but he'll easily get ahead by farming better while I'm struggling under tower. However, ganks can definitely shut Heimer down and make him think twice before playing up to my turret again, so I'll try to ping my jungler for assistance.”

Avucado says “Turrets are like Azir's, they can't see you themselves and wont shoot you in your W unless Heimer sees you himself. Don't try to trade with him at all, you will never win it unless you somehow hook him, but he can just block it by placing a turret in from of himself. Once he's 6 he can basically do over half your health under tower if he hits the stun. Once you see the missile version of his R just E away as fast as possible. Ganks are hard to pull off without a jungler with easy cc. Hexdrinker/mercs are good into this matchup.”

Hullos says “Can be annoying if they are good but the lane just ends up being a farm lane. If that ends up happening then you almost always come out on top with ult.”
Polarshift says “Super annoying to play against. But atleast your E spreads even if you use it on his turrets. Asking for a gank against this guy is a bit tricky, since in lower elos he will most likely get a doublekill instead. Farm up, outscale and outperform him in the teamfights and the sidelane.”
LunarVortex says “Your W is great for clearing turrets and your E is great for blocking his stun. Time your E well so he doesn't break it before his stun. The worst that can happen to you in this matchup is that he forces you to lasthit under tower.”

Halfhand says “TIPS: This is the most predictable matchup in the game. He will always just look to perma push your tower. Make sure you push him in/ destroy his turrets before you consider roaming. Otherwise your tower will be gone really fast.”

Yeager says “This is something i rarely see midlane because heimer is better top since he's oppressive against melee champions. Heimer does 1 thing: Stack turrets and shove people in. If you're fast, you can walk into one of the midlane brushes BEFORE the minions spawn to destroy his turrets with your team. If you manage to do that, the lane will become so much easier because you simply have to destroy every turret as soon as he places them. He will lose his ability to control the lane. If you can shove him in, his lane is doomed. Watch out for his E AOE stun. I often see heimer players using this ability right when you're about to attack one of his turrets. His W deals a lot of damage but it can be body-blocked by minions, so stay behind those when trading. Basically you use your range advantage to take down his turrets. Bait out his E (it helps having boots since it's a skillshot) and then go for trades. Even though i run phase rush into pretty much everything, it's really strong into heimer. You can counter his slows and dodge his skillshots with the bonus movement speed. ”
Yeager's Master Orianna guide by Yeager | Orianna Player
Fuzzmonkey says “Work around when he has turrets near him. If he doesn't go in for trades, other than that don't go near him and just farm as best you can against him. At level 6 will be your best all in opportunity, make sure you hit everything. Biggest thing about the match up is to not let him hit you with the stun grenade, this will pretty much kill you if all 3 of his turrets then hit you after. Other than that, just play it safe and wait for him to use his cooldowns.”

Fuzzmonkey says “Syndra is basically the biggest counter to heimerdinger since you can pick up his turrets with your W. Constantly poke him with Q as well. Easy win.”

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

Sovereign Kitten says “You can (Q) his turrets and kill them with 2 (AA), so your objective is to focus on this and avoid using abilities, if you prefer to not max (Q). However, if you do max (Q) you can kill his turrets in one (Q) so long as you have the AP early game, which allows allowing you to press your advantage of shoving him back and not setting up a perma shove into your tower. Keep on your toes scout! You need to be vigilant and keep avoiding all of his skill shots. Once his towers are down for a tiny second you can get in and poke him a little or continue to simply take his turrets down until he's out of mana. A good Heimer will keep you pinned under tower all game. ”
THE PASSIONATE GUIDE TO TEEMO by Sovereign Kitten | Teemo Player
RivalOCE says “Try to focus on hitting his towers. If you can dodge his stun you should win trades and skirmishes. At level 6, try to juggle your Q's then all in when he mis-spaces. You win the scale too, just try to survive lane.”
I Am Goliath says “Heimer is just simply annoying in my experience, very hard to kill him early but he also shouldn't kill you, he's going to just be pushing you in 24/7 so try calling for jungle help pre 6 before he gets his big turret. Try your best to push in this lane and atleast keep it in the middle of the lane, if you ever land an E on him you should be able to kill him quickly in one full combo, but do be careful of stopwatch/zhyonas which they usually get early since their turrets can do the work for them.”

BoilTheOil says “Take Conqueror. You can cheese him level 1 by sitting in the third bush top lane and running at him once the minions come. You probably can't kill him in lane and he pokes you out. If their jungler or mid laner is also AP rush Merc treads against him. If your jungler ganks him you can probably kill him just by running into him and using E, just watch out for his insane burst. If they don't have any frontline for you to ult he outscales you. ”
[11.19] NA Challenger / Grandmaster Sett Top Lane Guide by BoilTheOil | Sett Player
Stinkee says “Only problem with Heimerdinger is the fact that he'll shove lanes to your tower nonstop. You need a mana item (Abyssal Mask) to keep up with him and shove your waves. You can actually throw his turrets with your E, allowing you to reposition them to better manage your waves. You can even throw his turrets towards your tower so your tower fires at it. He will not be much of a threat at all unless his jungler comes.”
Phrxshn says “Consider being a full-time Proxy Singed because you will not out trade him. If you cannot push or set-up proxy consider skipping a wave just to proxy. Try to kill Heimerdinger if you chose to lane against him. Dodging his skillshots will determine if you can trade or not. (Recommended Items: Force of Nature or Abyssal Mask for laning; Rylai's Scepter, Mercury's Treads) (Sustained 1v1 Trades: Heimerdinger, Singed without turrets) (Outscaling Edge: Even)”
At_Tar_Ras says “auto-Q all his turrets ASAP as they're being put down and he UNIRONICALLY has zero threat against you. this is an easy matchup and when you're fed his turrets simply mean more mobility for your dash reset.”
Raen says “Annyoing to play against, try to destory his mini turrets and jump in when he uses his E. Early doran shield will be helpful vs his poke and Sheen for kill potential.”

The_Unf0rgiv3n says “Avoid fighting him while he has 2-3 turretns around him. Blocking his stun doesnt mean winning the trade because his turrets deal A LOT of dmg early game. At level 6, dont fight him if he spawns the big turret! Wait for it to expire and go back in for the kill.”

P1Legend says “Stack ap early, every ap component you can find. this match becomes the easiest thing in the world when you can just double W his turrets and have all his damage potential disappear, while also hitting him for 60% of his hp. keep clearing his turrets this way once you stack enough Ap and the matchup is very easy”

Coldsong says “Heimerdinger is annoying but not too bad. If he does not have his grenade you can easily engage on him and kill him. However, try to destroy his Q turrets first since they deal a lot of damage.”

Rihh says “Provides too much area denial to let Jhin be comfortable, it's possible to survive with a strong support but avoid this matchup if possible. Jhin struggles heavily to delete Heimerdinger's turrets and doesn't like the gameplay loop of Heimer.”

OverjarlZane says “Heimer is very annoying. While, yes you can deal with his turrets if he places them poorly in a lot of cases he'll be able to lock you down and 60% you with one e-q combo. Give him respect, may wanna run Barrier for this one.”

Tips Against Heimerdinger in the Jungle Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors

Simple Shawn says “ban. never will i play vs a champ that makes his turrets tank ur powerball and that doesn't take damage from your thorns”
Suseri says “Just farm don't fight get more points in W to sustain in lane if he pokes you under your turret. It's winable but not worth the effort and risk since he can just wait for your Q stun you to the place and let his turrets kill you while keeping his distance again.”

SoSheolH says “His damage doesn't come from him so hitting him won't do much. If you run into his turrets you'll get melted no matter what, and they'll pick off your carries even faster. Very dominant in lane and ungankable early, which is where you shine. Your W works on his turrets so you can at least stop their empowered attacks for a little bit, but they'll still attack you since it's just a taunt. Unless the player is really bad, you won't be able to gank this lane, at least not post-six.”

temple1997 says “Heimerdinger can use his turrets, stun and ult to burst you before you can even reach him - and even then, if you catch him his turrets and ult will probably kill you before you kill him or after.”
