“You will be looking to poke as much as possible with Q lvl 1. Punish him for every cs he tries to get. If he throws Q at you, make sure to zone him from CS. The matchup will not be as easy if he decides to max E which gets charged super fast from your constant spamming of abilities, and it also can't be blocked by your windwall. Kassadin players usually take TP, which gives you an advantage in 1v1 as we have ignite. ”
“Pre-6 it's not a problem, but after that you'll never stun him again... His entire kit is perfect for destroying mages. Sadly, Zilean doesn't have enough aggression to bully him in the early game, which means Kassadin will gain free access to mid-lategame. I suggest dodging in champ select as it's just too risky to play against him. Your jungler has to be on point and camp him enough to shut him down, but that rarely happens in solo Q.”
“Who enjoys playing against Kassadin honestly? It doesn't matter what you do because you're on a clock.
I perma ban this champion, you might have a really good early game but it just takes one null mantle to make you irrelevant. ”
“He has a free laning phase against mages as there's not really anything you can do due to his passive and magic shield from Q. Your objective is to end the game fast by NOT letting him scale. So if you can't do anything to him in lane, shove the wave and roam to other lanes and get them ahead. ”
“You can poke him incredibly hard early since he is immobile, especially if he runs fleet. If he runs electrocute be careful of his all in damage with ignite. Your wavingclearing is way superior so use that to your advantage to dodge him after level 6 and try to pressure the jungle and other lanes with your team. Later in the game you can try to keep him in place whenever he tries to go for your team, that'll allow your team to potentially cc or kill him. He shouldn't be able to get close to you, so abyssal mask isn't really needed.”
“Winning this matchup will require coordination with your jungler, and great vision control because you have to push the wave into his turret to punish him, so the enemy jungler most likely look for ganks. A good kassadin won't push the wave against you, so you can't really freeze.
His Q gives him a temporary magic shield, so when trading, wait until the shield expires, and then use your abilities. His Q is a single-target spell so the minions will aggro him when he's using it. If you have a stacked wave by slow pushing, he will take a lot of damage from the minions.
Spam auto attacks and zone him from waves with your ball. He's a melee champion so you can punish him pretty hard if he walks up to cs. People usually greed for cannon minions.
If you have teleport, you can apply constant pressure and match his teleport.
He obviously outscales you, so you want to try and close out the game before he hits the lvl 16 elospike. That means not giving him any advantages (dying to enemy jungle gank for example)
What happens after lvl 16 entirely depends on the teamcomps. Orianna is also strong lategame so you have to play around your teams wincondition (splitpushing, teamfighting, sieging etc).
Even if kassadin is at god-level after 16, he can still be shut down with the right teamcomps, so don't give up even if you reach lategame.
“MELEE = PUSH EARLY (LEVELS 1-2) - CARE FOR GANKS! (SPAM Q'S TILL 50-60% MANA) - Corrupting + maybe a Doran if you struggle.
If possible spam Q from a longer range and try to send him to base before 6. Post 6 there is no reason to fight him unless you have a hard CC such as Skarner because he will always escape with blinks or even kill you. Kassadin is a good counter to Taliyah because if he does not have cooldown on teleport he can easily follow you bot so try to roam only when you know his teleport is not up. Kassadin usefulness starts only at about level 11 and two items, so try to abuse early as much as you can and perhaps tell your team that too.
Beware of the teleport. Most Kassadin players will go for TP and will try to bait you into using all your skills and missing them so that you need to recall. Whenever you can try to go for all-ins because if you don't get a kill the enemy Kassadin will just gain advantage from the TP, so engage smart.”
“Kassadin is a level 5 threat not because of his laning phase, but because he's absolutely unkillable at level 16 and since I don't trust my teammates to end before that point, I almost always ban him. On the off-chance that he does go unbanned though, I'll E-AA him pre-6 and use my W (I get it at level 2) when he tries to trade back. I'll also do my best to weave in as many autoattacks as I can when he goes for minion last hit. After 6 I just farm safely and stay close to my tower. I don't waste my Q randomly, I wait for him to use his R first. I usually have a hard time killing him in lane without a jungler, despite winning heavily in trades, because of his passive and because whenever he gets too low on health, he just goes B and teleports back. I need a jungler in this match-up if I have any hope of being even remotely as useful as Kassadin is, which is another reason why I ban it. Can also go for a Cull start.”
“You can start corrupting potion and bully him a lot pre 6. After 6, save your E till he used his blink. His waveclear is really weak, so you can shove him in super fast and roam. ”
“Kassadin is a surprisingly easy match-up for Orianna. On paper, it seems like after level 6 he would be really good against an immobile mage, but it really isn't the case. You can bully him VERY HARD early game and get leads he will never be able to recover from. If you are able to freeze lane at any point, he can never step up to cs. Do your best to stay out of his Q range and every trade will be in your favour.
Recommend: Ignite and Dmg Build”
“He can be harassed a lot pre-6, be careful of his power spike at level 6. He has his Q that gives him a magic shield, so i suggest that you don't try to Q him back, just wait for the shield to go down and do the usual Q, W, AA combo and trigger electrocute. Build MR!”
“Yet another annoying match-up. He isn't much to look at pre-6, but once he gets his Riftwalk he is a NIGHTMARE. Combine that with his Q that cancels your ulti and his passive which reduces all incoming magic damage by 15% and you can forget about out-trading him. Depending on his skill though, this game could be easy early on, given that he's melee.”
“Pre level 6 you can try to zone him and harass him with AA due to him being a melee champion. His (Q) can be quiet annoying as it not only causes damage but gives him a shield against magic damage too. Try to zone him as much as possible early and bully him from his farm. You should try to make use of his pre 6 lack of mobility & call for some jungle help to abuse it. Once he reaches level 6 the real fun begins. Kassadin will likely roam now too so be sure to give your team a heads up if he goes missing or follow him if possible. Some magic resist will go a long way here, consider Merc Threads / Banshee's Veil.”
“Early game is your best window to build a lead on him. He is extremely vulnerable pre-6. Post-6 keep your distance away from him, as he is very mobile can make quick and deadly trades. He is difficult because of his extreme mobility, which only gets faster as the game progresses.”
“This is an extremely tough lane and you will need some jungle pressure or ganks to help you survive or win lane.
It is almost impossible for you to trade with him due to his (Q) providing him with harass and a shield.
Choose flat AP Quints and AP or MR Glyphs against Kassadin.
I try to play this lane passive, survive and farm as much as I can. Call for jungle help and roam to to other lanes when possible.
Oh,,,,,, what fun you're going to have :)”
“It is not unplayable, but you have to be so much better, than he is to win. You both have free scaling, but his splitpush and assassin style is more powerfull, than yours in SoloQ. You won't lose lane, but probablly the game. My go to ban”
“Counters your kit completely, Outscales you. His early game isnt that strong and he has very low armor so going the klepto page allows you to get fed early on.”
“Once that clock hits 30 minutes, you lose. He jumps on top of you and you die. Build aggressive and encourage your team to end before 30.”
“Start Doran's Blade or Corrupting Potion and zone him from CS at level 1. Proceed to trade whenever possible and look for kills before level 6. ”
“Very annoying with that magic resist shield, but if you play it right you can easily destroy him. pressure him pre-6, and hard engage when he does. look for good trades.”
“Abuse his early game! When he hits 6 try to trade and poke”
“ The second easiest matchup for Tryndamere. Pre 6 if he ever tries to go for CS you get a slow and either burn flash or kill him. The only way you lose this matchup is if he takes grasp and you let him trade with you freely to the point where you can't all in him. Expect a lot of jungler assistance for Kassadin in this matchup. ”
“The problem with this matchup is the fact that you can't do anything to him. His passive makes him take reduced magic damage, his Q gives him a magic shield. His Rod of the ages core item makes him tankier as well. Kassadin will scale for free, and if he gets to lategame, noone can stop him. ”
“Easy early, but becomes harder later. You want to establish lane dominance by pushing hard lvl 1. When he is under his tower, he won't be able to Q spam you, and you can bully him. ”
“Laning against Kassadin should be reasonably OK due to him being a melee champion. Should they be decent at playing the champion or are a OTP, then you might be in for some trouble. Try to farm as much as you can during laning phase. His (Q) is annoying as it offers him a shield. After 6 he becomes kill-able for you. If you fall behind though, this will be difficult. He will want to roam so be sure to either follow him or else be the one leading the roam.”
“Silence really bugs me and his ult can prevent your all in's only trade when he is in an awful position. Early game try to make him use his mana against you and heal back up. This will prevent him from teleporting away with his ult in all in's and gives you the upper hand from you when you want to fight. Poke and farm throughout the early game and get your items so you can punish him with more poke or by killing him.”
“Kassadin matchup is the most misunderstood matchup kat has had in the game, it is a very simple matchup and very winnable if you know how to abuse his early game.”
“Kassadin will likely be unable to kill you in lane, but the problem is that you don't have the kill pressure or poke to force him into bad backs and he will inevitably outscale you (and everyone on your team) if left to farm. To win you need to roam so effectively that your team gets fed enough to end before he becomes relevant.”
“Even though Kassadin is a amazing an denying certain AP champs, syndra can work past that. Never let him walk him to Q you, and as Syndra you should always be poking him when his Q is down so he can't shield your damage, don't forget to keep auto'ing him pre-6 too.”
“As long as you can land an E on him before he gets too close, you'll be fine.”
“Kassadin was designed almost exclusively to destroy mage's, so you're not in for a fun lane. Pre level 6, you have edge. AFTER level 6, be on alert at all, times. His power spike at 6 makes him very hard to pin down for a long time, and he can chunk you out very quickly if you dont have something or someone you can fall back too close by. Try to get him behind early on if you can, but after he hits level 6, play as safe as you possibly can and let him be the one to screw up. ”
“Quite a hard matchup since he can deny your (Q + W) burst in laning phase. Land chains at level 6 and you can kill him from there onwards. Try and get your jungler to gank as many times as possible early game, since Kassadin will start to get pretty annoying to deal with once he gets his catalyst. Just make sure you can snowball off of him before he gets out of control.”
“This guy can be really painful even early on with his Q spam. In case that he has Doran shield, just ignore him and don't even bother harassing him. In case that he has anything else, then use your E for slow and go all-in with W pre-6. If you go for short trades, just keep in mind, that first you need to wait for his shield from Q to fall, otherwise you will be losing trades and he will block a lot of your damage. Post-6 he will try to abuse you, though with your ult up if he jumps on you, just don't get scared. At first you need to E him and start spamming autoattacks and Rs until he has another ult back. With that, you should be able to deliver enough damage to scare him off these actions or sometimes he might even end up getting killed. What is problem though, that he might roam a lot and get advantage somewhere else, which might end up being problem when dealing with him from mid to lategame!”
“High poke damage with Q, but this aggros minions. His passive is pretty much useless against any AD champions, but will have very good sustain in lane with fleet footwork. Make sure to not use too much energy by committing to poke.”
“Anti- Mage assassin , good from lvl 6 and after , but you can handle him during all the early/mid game , harass him and kill him at lvl 3 .
Roa/Abyssal can be a good choice. ”
“His Q grants him a small AP shield but it's enough to negate your E so it can be a pretty hard matchup especially since he has little to no mana issues and If you find yourself winning early game careful later on as you can imagine Kassadin scales very good and you'll stand virtually no chance fighting him if he grabs a lead as well.”
“The king of counter to AP assassins”
“He is an anti-mage so its is very hard to kill him even pre 6. After 6 its becomes a nightmare as he out roams you and out damages you. He also has better late game scaling. Punish pre 6 as best as possible but play safe and farm watching for ults post 6. ”
“Try to snowball other lanes and poke him as much as possible. Rush Trinity Force for extra poke. The main reason why he is extreme threat is his late game. No matter what you do he'll come to level 16 and take over the game.”
“One of the easiest threats, his MR shield and his E mean nothing to you, be careful in Late Game because his damage is greatly increased”
“His ult makes him a pain in the ass, maw build and look to roam post-6”
“You have to harass as much as you can pre-6 which is before Kassadin comes a threat. You kind of have to end early so Kassadin can't scale and win the game. ”
“matchup is fine pre 6, after 6 it turns into hell”
“D-Blade. He will attempt to poke lvl 1 by starting Q and will only go for CS with Q. Poke him if he tries to auto for cs. Deny him as much CS as you can. He really can't do much pre-6 unless he has his jungler. He will outroam you and outsustain you if he goes D-Shield + Fleet. Most Kassadin players take Teleport so at least you have that advantage 1v1 if you take Ignite (which you should **NEARLY** always mid). Outscales you. Take Fleet or Conq (Depends on team comp).”
“Laning against Kassadin should be reasonably OK due to him being a melee champion. Try to farm as much as you can during laning phase and you can trade with him whenever he walks up to farm a creep. His (Q) is annoying as it offers him a shield. After 6, he doesn't have as much burst as Akali and if you are even or ahead of him you should be able to kill him with x3 ultimate stacks. If you fall behind though, this will be difficult. He will want to roam so be sure to either follow him or else be the one leading the roam.”
“I used to permaban kassa, but now, I think the matchup can be quite easy if you can win early.
Take Electrocute as it will be easy to proc.
Try to freeze the lane, and not to push, so he either lose CS, or he take poke damage.
Try to either kill him, or avoid him from CS. If you have an early jungler such as elise, you can easily set up a dive in the early levels, if you have the info on their jungler.
In late tho, once he get level 6, you won't be able to hold him at all, but normally, you have the tools to end before he get to level 16.”
“You demolish him early, go in after the silence. Let the wave push into you so you could chase him down for the kill once q2 is ready. At 11 it might start to get challenging
If somehow it lasts that long, build spirit visage.”
“Buy longswords and do whatever you can pre-6. You can kill him, but it difficult. You want to punish him, but at the same time, you want the wave to shove into you so he is vulnerable.”
“His good mobility and decent late make him really hard matchup for Syndra”
“His Q shield and his passive make it impossible for you to ever kill him, even if you manage to cc him for once. He will also outscale you heavily and you can't really do anything about it.”
“Pretty annoying with his pokes and stuns.”
“Poo poo on you early outscale you late matchup is a hard dodge if you are new but can be taken advantage of for experienced players. Try to AWLAYS i mean ALWAYS use Super Q to trade start with an auto and if he Qs you wait for the shield to run out then succ him. Your abilities are AP based so it wont do a metric ton of damage compared to other champs but your Autos are AD and they do full damage. Always try to squeeze in Autos any opportunity you find because he cant defend against it”
“You can pressure him easily early game but when he reaches about level 11 you can't do much against him, he will just outscale you and carry his whole team.
Take the dark harvest rune setup so you can scale as well as him and maybe hard carry your team as well.”
“Goddamn this champion is broken right now. Don't let the game go past 25 minutes if you can help it.”
“Just stupid to deal with in laning phase - full stop. Even if you beat him pre-6, you're not going to for very long.”
“Skill matchup. Even tho Kassadin's level 16 is broken, you can still kill him if you play good in a 1v1.”
“Kassadin is possibly Talon's easiest matchup. He has a horrible laning phase pre-6 due to his lack of mobility. The best tip I can give you is to try and end the game before he hits level 16, as he outscales you HARD.”
“You can totally harass him because his passive and Q based against magic damage enemies while you have physical. Ruin his scale as much as you can and make him useless (until lvl 16 and then the game changes so maybe you will need to look for some resistance.)”
“Kassadin will destroy you in mid/late game. Early, with ad items, conqueror, and auto reset from e, you can win pre 6, but be very careful. Its best to pick another ad champ when you see him in champ select.”
“Abuse him before he scales because this guy is an absolute monster in the very late game.”
“Dshield/Sword + pots
You win early, play aggressive and make it hard for him to scale. Post 6 be careful for his burst but you should win until he has 2-3 items.”
“If he picked Kassadin against you, you should welcome him into Pyke mid with a good and old Stomp!
He is harmless until level 9.
Trading is really good and he will be an easy target.
If this lane isn't going as well as i'm saying, buy a hexdrinker and call for a gank, he will die. ”
“It doesn't matter how hard you beat him pre 6. once he hits lvl 6 he can easily jump in on you and burst you down. Even at lvl 6 he isn't that strong because he doesn't have items but when his ult starts ranking up you just die.”
“Ban KASS, NO Counterplay, unwinnable.
“Much like Anivia, a weak champ early on who you can easily bully, but much stronger as soon as he hit's 6. If he get's too ballsy you can punish him with your ult. the biggest issues here are his magic shield and his silence. It's rough to get a taste of your own medicine with the silence, and the shield can eat some of your damage, but until 6 you have massive lane pressure over him. ”
“Go for a trade when his Q magic shield is down. You can get out-traded if he hits all his spells. Setup Q dagger on him directly or on minions, he is a melee champion so take advantage of this. Don't Q him when his Q is up, he'll simply get magic shield from you with a Q and you'd get out-poked. After hitting 6, if he ults in and uses Q, be aggressive and all in with your own ult.”
“MR passive and magic shield. Very hard to kill solo especially after 6.”
“Kassadin doesn't have much he can do early against you and you can heal up from most of his poke using shrines. If he tries to ult in, he risks getting stunned with your Q if he has minions.”
“he is very strong in to most ap champions but you can do a lot of damage to him due to your passive.”
“Activate ur E before or after he uses his E, it stops ur channeling”
“His passive reduces the amount of damage you can put out. His Q can shut you down in a team fight as your R cancels if Anivia is hit with any form of displacement or CC. Try to contain him pre-6 because that is when he is the weakest. ”
“HoB/Sword. I used to despise Kassadin with my scaling builds. He seemed unbeatable between his sustain, poke damage, and powerful W that kept me away from farm. Recently I've had some pretty successful lanes running HoB into him instead. The best way to handle Kassadin is to get the lane frozen and bully him away from farm with Hail. Your combo is terrifying for a champion with so little armor and will completely prevent him from walking up to melee farm, forcing him to Q creeps over you in order to avoid being hard starved. His E makes sticking to him and threatening solo kills unlikely, but as long as you keep him off of your creeps you are doing your job. Begin positioning aggressively and zoning him at level 2. You may be able to surprise him at level 3 and kill him if he isn't careful. The most important thing is to get that freeze going and keep it going to put him 50 CS behind. Mind that burnout doesn't end up breaking your freeze and never E more than 1 creep at a time, even if it may get you some damage onto him. Tank incoming waves in front of your turret and keep them parked right out of its range. Then position behind the caster minions so that you can hit Kassadin and only Kassadin with your E and W if he even thinks about going up for farm. Once I get more skilled at this, Kassadin may not be such a bad lane after all. I will probably drop the difficulty further in the future, but I'm leaving him at 4 for now simply because he's such a high scaling threat later on. ”
“Kassadin isn't that great early game, but he does have a magic damage shield and can ult away from most fights. Late game, he can burst you quite easily.”
“Like Irelia, try to win the lane early and end the game fast. After Kass hits lvl 7+ he'll be trouble. And he'll be crazy at 16”
“Like ryze he is a late game beast, and like you too. Don't let him get kills, otherwise the game is doomed once he reaches level 11, if he reaches 16 and is strong then the game is really over.”
“pressure off farm and xp early by harassing but not going oom or pushing too far. he outscales but needs levels and items to do so.”
“outscales you, has magic shield and takes less magic damage so its hard to bully him in lane. ”
“Personal go to ban. He's extremely hard to play against because his Null sphere cancels your ultimate. His low cd ultimate also means you can't hit him with q most of the time. If I'm ever against a Kassadin, I start doran's blade and can out trade him with autos. If he ults on you, he probably also used all his other abilities in the process and you can engage on him for a short while because he has no way of fighting back.”
“I always banning him when i play yasuo. Try to kill him until he get level 6. ”
Try to play aggressive till he gets 6, then he will be a problem”
“Kassadin is a champion that you should never lose lane to and should be able to early kill him and abuse his trash early game, you can E his q and e which are the reasons why he is good against ap champions you should be trying to close the game because he is a late game menace ”
“Do a lot around the map do not let him get lv 16”
“Kassadin is very strong against mages and neeko is no exception. Shove your lane and roam to help your team. Try to end the game fast, you do NOT want to let him scale.”
“Good matchup. Can zone and beat kassadin early with his crappy early game. Abuse him and make sure you don't get ganked from the enemy jungler. At 6 he starts to rift walk, but you can outplay that by using melee form E to push him away.”
“Harass with q and go for long trades early, just beware of the minion wave before you go for early kills.”
“You're on the clock. POKE HIM. Do stuff pre-11 because, post-11 he will just kill you. He's not that dangerous in lane, despite his annoying Q, as you can still auto him after gold-carding even if he Q's you. It's not an easy matchup and definitely a loss post 11 levels. So you have to do A LOT on the map before that.”
“Try to poke him as much as possible. He is able to be easily ganked pre-6.”
“Keep him away from cs early so he cant farm. He need 2 items to do something, watch for enemy ganks and try to run him down when he have no mana to R.”
“Although, a close combat favors for Lissandra, it also favors for an assassin like Kassadin. When it comes to the trades of damage, Lissandra has an advantage in early because of her attack and ability range advantage but that's only when Kassadin still doesn't have his Rift Walk. Also, Kassadin's passive ability makes him take a bit less magic damage. So it might became a bit of disadvantage for Lissandra. Magic Penetration can't affect that magic damage reduction of Kassadin.”
“You can kill him if he uses too many abilities on the wave, but if he gets to lvl 6, then he will silence your Ultimate, be more mobile than you in a 1v1, and scale a lot harder.”
“Just ban it, youre welcome.”
“If you get sustain early, you can poke him out, but beware of his Q spam. Once he is level 6, he will destroy you. Defensive items are necessary. Don't over commit when he has his ultimate available.”
“You can Kill him at any point of the Laning phase, there's no secret just burst him down”
“Take Comet or PTA. Zone him off early. Take heavy trades. Keep him down early to stop him from scaling. ”
“Although in the early stages, Ekko can out trade him, Kassadin will grow in terms of damage and can fully engage you, leaving you a minimal time to react and avoid the aggressive trade he'll look for. It is important that you intimidate the opposing Kassadin, as some do still under-estimate Ekko. Nevertheless, a good Kassadin will be a huge threat to Ekko.”
“Easy laning phase, one sided trade early game, when he is level 6 bait his r and hit your e. he becomes really scary late game though.”
“He actually outscales you. In lane, he isn't much of a problem until level 6. Then he does become a problem. Play around his cooldowns to find success. And his ult has low cooldown by the way.
Preferred rune: Comet”
“Pretty easy until he gets his powerspike. Another annoying this is that he silences you and gains a stupid magic shield.”
“I hate this champion and I permaban every game. It might just be me though.”
“Avoid playing agressively, wait for him to come in your face then W him and siturb his combo with E.”
“You can win early game but he can destroy you late game.”
You can harass him a lot pre-6 but after that he can teleport on you and he hurts.
Pre-6 you should wait for him to throw out Q and wait out the shield, when he tries to back off after it runs out E after him to trade back with Q W.
Post-6 I suggest you get some MR.”
“So a lot of people is saying that with Ahri, it is easy to escape from bad fights. But not if the enemy is a Kassadin. After lvl 6 with his ult he can chase you forever (or at least, until he has mana). his abilities can damage lot, so you should focus dodging his abilities like E, or not letting him close, to hit W on you because these abilities have insane ap ratio, so he can easily oneshot you in late game. The only advantage you will have is early and mid game... try to make plays in the early game, but focus on farming too, because you will need to be in advantage both kills and farm to beat him in late game.”

“Good Kassadins can dodge your ult most of the time and will outscale you. Try not to fill his E up without knowing.”
“Pretty easy to deal with pre-6, but once he gets 6 you have to play very carefully and pray he doesn't get fed of roaming and killing your teammates.
After Fizz he's my 2nd favorite ban because of how OP he is.
Try to wave clear so he can't roam, Kass's wave clear isn't very good so that's a way to stop him.
Late game you're basically fucked if he doesn't make mistakes.”
“If he hits 16, game over. ”
“Jokes aside, Kassadin is probably your biggest counter. However, most Kassadin players suck ass lmao. Poke him pre 6 I mean like hella hard. After 6 freeze the wave and if he ults near your turret, shuffle him to turret as his ult cd lvl 1 is 5 seconds. During team fights, be REALLY REALLY careful on how you approach it.
Pre 6 just bully him. After 6 freeze the wave.”
“The full list of threats are under The Noble Guardian. Evil has no fear.”
“A matchup definitely in favour of Zed. Kassadin shines against mages, but strives against AD assassins like Talon and Zed. Pre 16 is where you shine against Kassadin. However, post 16 Kassadin is a nightmare no matter who you're playing. Zone him as much as you manage in lane, if he walks up to a minion, AA+E+Q him.”
“Can't rlly punish him in lane, so he outscaled hard”
“Win game before he gets level 16. Freeze wave in front of your tower, deny him cs and exp by threatening all in. His early game 1v1 is surprisingly powerful especially if he takes electrocute, but he is super vulnerable to ganks pre 6.”
“meh, relly meh, nothing intersting hes just...meh”
no importa nada mas.
no se le puede castigar demasiado en early, y su late es 5 veces mejor que el de anivia.”
“Anti-mage champ, he beats you for the rest of the game after his first back.”
“Laning against Kassadin should be reasonably OK due to him being a melee champion. Try to farm as much as you can during laning phase and you can trade with him whenever he walks up to farm a creep. His (Q) is annoying as it offers him a shield. After 6, he doesn't have as much burst as Akali and if you are even or ahead of him you should be able to kill him with x3 ultimate stacks. If you fall behind though, this will be difficult. He will want to roam so be sure to either follow him or else be the one leading the roam.
“High poke early and can super easily get out when you death mark him. You can though W after him. You outdamage him pretty big.”
“pretty hard matchup. you should dodge his E and Q with your E everytime and you will be safe, ult him only when he used his R since 1 sec and he cant escape”
“Kassadin is such a TOXIC champion, you literally can't hit him, he can easily tp out of your E and attack you, it's annoying.”
“He's extremely weak early game and you can abuse him with that. Start E and jump on him everytime he tries to get cs. He could trade back but you do a lot more damage than him cause you've stacked conqueror while fighting him. Overall Just keep him from farming and you'll be fine.”
“outscales you, takes reduced damage by your damage, has a disengage, has sustain. It's almost impossible
to really win this matchup”
“Kassadin's Q build him magic shield which refuses to take damage from your abilities and silence you. He can even stop your ultimate when you cast it with his Q, to counter start of with magic resist boots and build more AD early game”
“Kas is weak before six but you could and should try and take him out to get a lead because once he gets level 16 hes a serious problem with hit ult dash that could dash past your e and he all ins you ”
“You must kill him in Lane or you will be out-scaled. Take ignite and trade a lot early. Ask for gank.”
“High mobility , silence , not so comfortable ”
“He can all time dodge ur q r and e”
“You destroy kassadin early game but it gets significantly harder at 6 and as the game goes on. try to exploit his lack of range pre 6 and snowball before he does.”
“esta duro contra el muro, SACA VENTAJA JUGANDO INTELIGENTE, en late te va a ganar si o si, si no tenes equipo. aery cometa elec”
“Start with a Long Sword, and try to kill him at level 2-3. Only use your ultimate after he uses his Q.”
“Easy to abuse before he gets ult and you can poke with q and w for free. If he silences you he gets a shield so try and either back away or reposition to land a charm on him. At 6 he can engage on you and kill you if he has his item. Stay away from him entirely unless your team is around you after he hits 16 because he scales hard.”
“Get Corrupting pot. Shove the wave so he has a hard time farming. After 6 stay back. Take teleport/barrier/ignite. ROA+Seraphs build.”
“IF U DONT MANAGE TO SNOWBALL EARLY GAME U WILL LOSE ”
“Try to get an advantage befor level 6 or else you can't really kill him in lane if he plays well.just try your best to get your others lane ahead because if he gets level 16 you lose the game.”
“Tüm magelerin counteri olması yanısıra. Vladimir q atmak için yaklaştığında Kassadin'de q atarsa büyü kalkanıyla tanklamış olur. Q skillinin susturu sayesinde e yeteneğimizi yarıda kesip e'nin hasarını kısabilir ve e'nin cdrsi iade olmaz. Onun dışında 6 levelden sonra lanede nefes aldırmaz ve late gamede çok daha güçlüdür.”
“YOU 100% LOSE LANE, DO NOT PICK KASSADIN INTO HIM! YOU ARE GIVING AWAY FREE WINS!”
“Easiest zed matchup by far. You can farm him lvl 3-5. EVERY time he walks up for a minion you fuck him up. If you don't kill this guy in lane tho and youre only ahead ~30 cs he's gonna be hell late game.”
“Its okay, you can beat his early and maybe bully him, if you do well with that you wont have any problems on late game. otherwise..”
“Punish him for not being ranged! Be careful though for his level 6.”
“mobile. he outscales erally hard. probably a ban if u dont ban fizz”
“One of Kat's hardest matchups because he can cancel your R with his Q. It's impossible to deal with him unless the Kassadin is bad at the game. Rush hexdrinker and merc treads and get nullifying orb from the sorcery tree.”
“Kassadin has no real strength in the laning phase. He has to get close to you to deal significant damage. Late game, though, he can be almost as much of a powerhouse as you. Try to slow his farm by pushing him under turret. Once he gets ultimate, make sure to play back. Just kite this guy.”
“Beat him up early, try to get a small lead before 6, and continue to snowball faster than him. He's a monster late-game though, don't let him get to level 16.”
“Kassadin players will get surprised by your tankiness if you start your game with Resolve as second runes combined with a Doran's Shield. Abuse the fact that he is a melee champion and make sure you autoattack him as much as possible. Post 6 you can all-in on him if he tries to jump in for a trade. Get a Mercury's instead of Sorcerer's if you feel like you're falling behind. Late game Kassadin is a very dangerous threat and turn your entire attention to him once he dares to jump in with his Riftwalk because once he is CC'd, he dies quickly.”
“Kass will out Scale you and One Shot you In the Late game, Lux Wins from Range, Kassadin gets in your Face making it impossible to Land Skill Shots”
“lmfao just run him down early or he will fk you in ass later”
“This mans has built in flashes which is your hard counter”
“You just have to play perfectly against this champ. He can r your combo and q your out of your r. I don't usually ban this champion because not many people play him but if you do go against one play super aggro pre 6.”
“Hes screwed, plain and simple you win this every single time, your dive on him and his only hope is to pray you don't kill him, but you will cause your Qiyana and that means you're better then everyone, also Tiamat to get leads all over the map because you already win lane”
“Dominate him early game, but outscales you hard, try to abuse him as much as possible, but be careful of dying from roams and giving him a kill, he will build seekers and tabis and will beat you if hes ahead”
“Looks hard but its not. In early you can kill him with simple trades combos until lvl 6. After lvl 6 he is strong but if you killed him befor 6 you can kill him always. Don't let him scale.”
“Dodge, its not worth playing.
If you want the real explanation, his passive reduces all magic damage he takes by 15%, which is everything you do except for your E and R1, his Q silences you, he can out-sustain you at all points of the game with Fleet and W, and scales like all hell. If you play this matchup, just try to win the game before he hits level 16 if possible. ”
“Can negate your poke, and his all-in is way too oppressive and bursty. Try to not engage on him”
“Kass will outscale so you have to put him as far behind pre-6. If he runs TP, he will be even in lane. To beat him out of lane, you need enough mobility so he can't land his ult on you.”
“If you thought Galio's magic shield was bad, it gets worse. Much Worse.
Kassadins passive reduces 15% of all magic damage he takes, which is already bad, but he also has a Silence with his Q, sustain with Fleet Footwork and his W, Engage with his R, and disengage with his R, along with insane burst with his E. He is weak early, but is still able to kill you easily and once he hits level 16, its just over.
Dodge if at all possible.
“Read below in the matchup section for more info!”
“kassadin is a mage killer, weak early game but godlike late game”
“Kassadin will outscale you.”
“honestly cant say that much since he's been my perma ban since season 10 started pretty much, but I imagine he still takes 0 dmg from all your abilities early(especially after the nerfs) and can just all in you at level 6 or 9 and beat you every time. would recommend banning as well, but you can only ban one champ so...”
“He will 100% outscale you late game. Look to roam as much as possible. You beat him until he hits level 11. Then you're in trouble. Look for burst trades early on. Take ignite for kill pressure, and use shark if he wastes ult.
Most kassadins dont respect you early, so can maybe look for an early first blood with ignite.”
“Ban it, or else it's insta lose
as long as you grown up, he also will, and he gets even more stronger”
“BULLY HIM BEFORE R AND HE WILL BE TOTALLY USLESS”
“You win lane. You need to gain as much as lead as you can and avoid fighting him after. You will lose. ”
“He will outscale you and is a counter to most mages. Very bad ult to steal”
“Even though Yasuo has the upperhand in this matchup, pre 6, Kassadin can opt for Fleet Footwork and never die in lane.
Kassadin is such a huge threat to Yasuo because he will outscale no matter what you build.
Best bet is to perma freeze your wave and mantain the freeze accordingly to map pressure.
“Try to use your ultimate after his q.”
“you have to punish him early, he will just outscale and you wont be able to punish him because of his mobility”
“Ask for ganks, you need to be ahead when he gets to lvl 6. His r has 1 downside which is mana; that's solved by his 1st item. You do the math captain”
“counters mages and azir is one”
“If you don't beat him early and get ahead early vs him than FF 15 go next.”
“He is an anti mage - post level 6 do not fight him alone, try to push wave and roam. If he is intimidating and doesn't let u shove him in then farm under turret.”
“go for the inspiration second tree, ask for help early levels and try to poke him a lot”
“Just dodge honestly and cba ty ”
“KASSAWIN! need to make plays early -mid game to win this game.”
“He can Q to cancel your W. At lvl 6 you should never be able to hit him with snowball or kill him.”
by Sanimal | Nunu & Willump Player
“pre 6 you have to do him so badly that he goes afk or uninstalls league of legends after this round but after 6 if u havnt been able to come ahead sayonara my friend”
“In this lane your gonna want to get level 2 and go for a heavy trade when you do make sure to wait for his q shield to wear out then go for an a q e auto combo this will make him use pots so when he runs out. If you hold the wave near your tower before 6 ping your jungle that he's overextended this will most likely result in a kill or summoners blown. ”
“For most players its a major threat. I only lost 4 times against kass mostly becouse i overpush him as fast as i can, and start roaming as soon as i ding lvl 6. ”
“He is anti-ap, and he also outdamages you, outroams you, and basically can do what you do, but better.”
“Easy to poke pre level 6 but be careful of his level 6 engage. Keep wards in bushes to track his jungler.”
“This is personally my to go ban because everything in his kit counters you. I'd say ban him or if you're against him roam a lot and don't try to fight him because he wins all in for free.
“you basically counter kassadin, his Q black shield does nothing against you
try to kill him and he's just like Ahri when you R him ”
“His magic damage reduction and his magic shield makes him really hard to kill. He's weak in early to try to go for early trades, but remember that the most part of your damage has to come from AA ( try to reset them with your E ). He can stop your R with his Q, so try to bait it before. His RWQ trade at level 6 is really strong, so try not to stay in his R range.”
“If you get an early kill, this could be easy. His level 6 onwards is better than your's so you need to find a way to outplay him or use R-W-E-Q-W-R. Hexdrinker when behind and watch out for his roams.”
“Surprisingly, this monstrosity is a decent lane for middlesticks. He keeps it a farm lane for the most part and you can poke him out with W's and your kit shuts him down from stomping all over your team later.”
“You honestly wouldn't think a person as strong as Kassadin would be easy to annihilate. His R is countered hard by your E. His mobility is very bad, even if he is level 6. The only time you need to worry about this champ is when he turns level 11/level 16. Then you let your team take care of robot tentacle hentai man.”
“make sure to go for a kill early, otherwise its gonna be hard past level 6. he wont kill you easily, you just cant kill him.”
“Personal permaban when playing mid, too strong in lane compared to typical scaling mages such as orianna, and his lategame strength is exacerbated at low elo, due to the inability to close out the game.”
“Hes pretty easy to kill just Q on him when he tries to Q the minions and kill him, if hes really defensive roam cuz he can't do anything”
“his early is weak , don't give him early advantage, roam when he's undertower.wave control is the key here.don't spend a lot of time in roams too , his W can get him gold from towers fast.”
“Beware the anti-mage. Pre six he's not a big deal, but as the game goes on his insane mobility and damage will become a problem for you. Try to deny him his early farm, maybe get an early kill on him. Lategame he can delete you if you are not careful.”
“He can get annoying in the sense that he does block your magic damage slightly better than others and gains quite a bit from his W, but his mana costs are still lame (so are yours tho) enough to run out before killing you. So in the case where but parties are out of mana, your speed both in attack and movement has an absolute advantage and will be usually what happens in early game. Save your ult for after he uses his ult to catch up to him and try to time your Q. He has a cast timer which makes it much easier to latch on to him and not being able to run away will ruin his game.”
“Starting Item: Dorans + Potion
Early game its an easy poke. Late game tho, hell R you all day everyday.
keep distance after lvl 6. Ready your E.”
“Essayez de le tuer avant le lvl 6 si vous n'y arrivez pas tanpis et jouez les cs et allez roamer.Vous ne pourrez JAMAIS le tuer en 1v1 et il vous détruira”
“Buy longswords and do whatever you can pre-6. You can kill him, but it difficult. You want to punish him, but at the same time, you want the wave to shove into you so he is vulnerable.”
“Don't care to much, you easily destroy him before lvl 6, after lvl 6, use your R on Kassadin and burst him”
“His ult is the only big problem. Abuse him hard pre-6 by pushing lane. Once his 6, be extremely careful.”
“I HATE THIS CHAMPION. Try to poke him a lot early before he's 6. Save bubbles until he R's onto you and you will be safe, but he just always outscales you. Consider dorans blade or cull start and sheen rush for extra physical damage against him. It's pretty effective.”
“you have to be waaaay fucking better than this person to function properly in lane. The only way to have a chance at winning lane is to cripple their CS, for you to have perfect CS, and to always be aware of where he could be so he doesn't roam or kill you. Any advantage will make it very hard for you.”
“Pre-6 he can't do anything to you minus throw is purple ball at you, which you have shield for. You win every trade you take versus him as long as you stay out of his melee range.
Post-6, unless you're ahead in lane, don't fight him. He can and will jump on you given the chance and can dodge your Q while doing it.
Try to end the game before he scales, he is known as the late game monster for a reason.”
“He can annhilate you if you let him scale, but he shouldn't be an issue at all early(scales slower than most mages)”
“Kassadin = Antimage after 6 be carefull”
“Farm lane. He outscales you super late (lvl 16) , so try to win in the midgame. ”
“Punish him pre level 6, also make sure to fight him when his Q shield is down. If confident take Longsword. ”
“Survive lane and roam using TP to get other lanes ahead”
by arcticmonk | Fizz Player
“Farm, Kill him before 6 with jungler's assistance. Remember his Q stops your ult.”
“Super free matchup, punish him and snowball.”
“Outscales you, basically unkillable after 6. Try to stomp him early, TAKE IGNITE and cheapshot.”
“At early game is easy but mid and late game is so hard. Feeding on him is not so hard but if he's feeded because of you the game is pretty much lost.”
“You win early but try to end the game before he hits level 16, you can't handle him then. Another good ban option.”
“Late game monster, you'll probably stomp him in the early game. ”
“Don't be at low health when she hits 6 always back to gain full hp when needed. When he roams you roam too. Start Dorans shield first item.”
“dodge in champselect”
by yoink my r now | Katarina Player
“He is a late game monster, his late game is better than yours and atm is too busted to not ban out. Only way to beat a kassadin atm is to win lane really hard which is a tough ask for people that are new to karthus.”
“The lane is hard because of his Q and in late it's impossible to touch Q because of his dash.”
“an effective anti-mage assassin, worst part is that he is ap. Wait for your late game and dont fight him”
“Kassadin is a late game Champion almost as much as Anivia. Though early game its merely a skill match-up, late game is where he becomes an issue. Kassadins ability to cast his ultimate consecutively makes landing Anivias Q difficult. If that wasn't already annoying, Kassidins silence will cancel Anivias Ultimate channel and leave her an open target while under this effect. Late game, Kassadins damage equals that of Anivias.”
“Kassa is hyper broken, u cant trade with him. Ur only choice is to get prio and support ur jungler or roam.”
“DODGE OR BAN. DODGE OR BAN.
“Be smart about trading with him, if he just Q's you behind minions he will win every trade. Try to land your W-E onto him and than chase him down with Q's and autos. After 6 not much you can do.”
“If you play early good he is done, but if he gets a jungle gank or you missplay and you die, then its gonna be really hard, he will build defensive and never walk up to you, at lvl 6 he will look to roam so push him to get mid prio ”
“Threat level 10.
I ban him every game. He outscales you, he outbursts you, he can kill you in the early/mid/late game. He takes reduced AP damage and can silence you. He can R out of your stun, and ultimately is not worth dealing with.”
“Probably vlad's biggest counter, his passive already makes vlad weaker, and his q can cancel the channel of vlad's e as well as this he is one of the few champs that can actually outscale vlad once he has 3/4 items he generally wins the 1v1. In lane do your best to poke him down and take trades to force him to waste mana.”
“dodge if u go against this kid”
“Probably won't kill you in the early game but he will snowball out of control because it is hard to punish him on Ryze. Try to shove the wave all the time until you jungler comes and help kill him.”
“With this build, you're effectively an AD champion for the entire portion of the game that Kass is weak. As Kassadin attempts to harass you, just auto-attack him 2-3 times and there will be nothing he can do, especially if he's not running armor runes. Post 6 you have to be a bit more careful though.”
“Kassadin is the most well known counter to Vlad probably. Before level 6 he is not a big threat but he hard outscales you in 1v1s after that. Try to end the game before he gets level 16 to avoid total annihilation. The only thing you can do to outplay him later in is to predict is ult and pool it accordingly, even then if not ahead you can easily die to his burst. The only advantage you have against him is in teamfights, but watch out that you don't let him split too long uncontested. The best bet you have on shutting him down is to push him in early and kill him under his tower by repeatedly poking him until he is in kill range with ignite, freezing does not really work as he can farm well with Q and is really safe from jungle ganks thanks to his ult.”
“High burst, magic sdhield, can ult out of your E , has low Cooldown Dashes.”
“Poke easily pre 6 but nightmare once he gets ult. Try to save q when he engages you and out scales you try to end game before he reaches 16
“You should dumpster him early game--harass early and often and send him back if possible before 6. A lot of junglers try to gank for him to help out his god awful early game but he does basically nothing to help them out, so just don't play stupid. Past 6 he's a whole other animal. Don't even try to stun him with W unless he JUST blinked with his ult, since he can easily escape with it otherwise. Your job is to make his early game hell so he doesn't make your late game worse.”
“He is strong against AP early and he is melee. Take that potential to get kills as fast as possible.”
“Another champ u can destroy. If you lose against him, u didn't time your Q+E very well ;;”
“This is a skill matchup that depends on how good the enemy Kassadin is, if he isn't good, then you should have an easier time, but it still won't be easy.”
“Some mobility but you can harass him hard before 6. After 6 E just after he teleports.”
“He outscales you and can cancel your R with his q. Ban him or doge”
“Hard to pin down for ganks”
“YOU NEED TO FINISH GAME AT EARLY!”
“With a silence and magic shield, Kassadin can be quite a nuisance.”
“My perma ban in ranked. If you didnt ban just dodge, dont waste your time. Only way you win is if you are infinitely better then the kassadin player.”
“Kassadin‘s magic shield and passive are perfect to counter zoe. When facing a Kassadin, always keep in mind that he might become really tanky after completing his rod of ages. Furthermore, Kassadin‘s R is a low cooldown dash, which is good for dodging Zoe‘s bubble. Whenever you miss your E, you will get a lot of damage. Try to use that. When you have your E ready, Kassadin might wait for you to miss it and engage. Don’t use your E before he didn’t Dash. Your E + Q is very strong in Midgame and able to get a lot of pressure. When Kassadin is in lane with you, just try to not get killed and farm. Kassadin is a good Duelist, but he can’t 1v5 your team in the most situations, but you can onehit their ADC. That way, your team is able to win the Teamfight.”
“Spam your push power. Always save your ult for him in a tf. Kassadin is not likely to build QSS, he will be useless if he got surrpessed once he ult in.”
“You win lane. You need to gain as much as lead as you can and avoid fighting him after. You will lose. ”
“His early game is much weaker than yours so play aggressive but his lv6 is stronger than yours and he outscales you unless you stack magic resist.”
“He can assassinate you easily, if you play badly. Watch out for his E stacks. After some minutes into the game, push his wave in, so he has to use his E or ultimate. Punish him for doing that. Overall you won't use that many abilities yourself, so that's a bad point for him, because he has to stack up his E stacks mostly by himself.”
“Shove wave under tower and roam.
don't get to late game or you're dead.”
“Pussy magic shield thing ”
“Kassadin, simply put, is a ticking time bomb. His passive and Q shield keeps him pretty safe from a lot of your poke/harass and all-in burst in the laning phase. A good Kassadin player will get out of laning phase only slightly behind, and from there the champion grows into a monstrosity to the point where he can 1v9 at level 16. Hes not the worst to deal with because he CAN be heavily set back early still with a good stun or jungle assistance, and CAN be shut down later with CC, but he still sometimes can be a nightmare to deal with. Thankfully, there aren't that many Kassadin players on the ladder.”
“lmao just kill him. His early game is laughable pre-6. Post 6 you need to bait out his R to get a good R on him. ”
“Try to avoid him he is the super anti mage assasin you will have a hard time with him. Although in any situtation i pick ekko against everything in the mid lane you can risk it and trust me if you learn how to play against anyone you dont have to worry about counters.
“One of Kats worst match-ups. His magic shield and passive make it impossible for you to do damage early game, and his 2 second dashes prevent you from getting fed. Try to roam to other lanes to gain a lead and snowball from there.”
“He hates you and for this reason will delete everything you have: voidlings will flee in fear (or die horribly) and he has a magic shield that nullify every damage you'll do with your E. Buy some marshmallows and bribe your jungler to camp mid.”
“Take Q first, build a wave, force him under tower. He has NO CHOICE but to use Q to farm. Hit him at will. Mid open, go next. You should only have problems with this matchup D1+ where he successfully doesn't die and loses lane slightly with an eventual outscale in the lategame.”
by SeeEl | Orianna Player
“A champion which is okay to face, but is NOT allowed to be under estimated.”
“Kennen vs Kassadin. It is a match up which is questionable. Kennen has the poke to pressure but Kassadin's Q Ability allows him to resist these often.”
“Kassadin is the strongest anti-mage champion in game atm. He wants to survive the laning phase but,if you harass him when he tries to gain wave control you can easily break this lane and reach him to his limit where you can easily win this,make sure the game doesn't reach 20+ cause he will start scaling and actually one shot you, every kassadin main does that,tries to gain wave control and freeze his wave under tower farming safe. Dont let him have this dream.”
“Very Annoying Lane, can tank most of the damage in early, and also outscale you, they can make your like very hard and, the best way to win against is helping other lanes, and trying to snowball after his lv 11.”
“Hes called Kassaswin at lv 16 for a reason don't let the game drag on too much and watch out for his silence in lane, he is very hard to lane against and will mess you up hard”
“Kill him before 6, and after, try roaming”
“Kassadin is a good champ to pick against ahri if he can reach level 6. Kassadin is weak to ahri's auto attacks try to poke him with auto if he uses his q. But when his magic resist shield disappear use your q and w combo to maximize damage. Do not let Kassadin do free damage to you, trade or punish him for moving up on you.”
“Early trades with q will deal equal/no damage at all to either of you. Try your best to auto attack him when he shields and use all of your abilities when it expires. Post-6 tough to consistently lockdown and hit with ult.”
“Normally front to back fights are what you want but with kassawin that is hard. He scales better then you what not many midlaners do. He blows you up, i would say take zonyas but aint gona save you from a 1.5 sec ult. try to split push this game so their team gets split up.”
“Has abilities to farm from a distance. Can jump over your wall anytime with his ult and kill you. Play safe.”
“D-Blade. He can't walk up to CS, he can't trade with you unless he has Electocute+Bone plating, and can't do much until 6. Deny him every CS possible, and stay clear of jungle ganks. If you snowball, he can't scale. Take Conqueror.”
“His ulti can counter your R, he can jump away, he is broken asf...
And in this patch he's even stronger. Wait for his shield to go off before you poke him.”
“Probably your biggest threat, Kassadin can negate your damage and past-6, it will be very hard for you to even approach him as he has dashes.”
“Hard to kill him and he cant really kill you.”
“This match up is very easy because you're obviously the better Kassadin ;)!”
“Even thought his r is a blink and we have grounded, a good kass player will be able to dodge most of your poisons with walking and his r to negate your kiting”
“Does a ton of damage and gets pretty tanky, has a lot of gap closers as well. ”
“Kass can easily ult away when you ult him, and his Q silences making it hard to burst him after ulting.”
“Kassadin gets destroyed in lane by Cassiopeia because she can utterly deny him any farm with her harass and zoning potential. Be incredibly aggressive, don't let him cs unpunished. Post 6, push his lane to his tower and roam. If he follows you should be able to kill him because you should be way ahead in cs, and thus gold. If he ever roams, punish him by pushing his mid tower hard.”
“Kassadin will not have the damage to kill you and will most likely run out of mana early trying. Once it gets to late he will become a huge threat so clearing wave and roaming will win you the early game enough that you should be able to close out the game.”
“C'est simple, il dodge tout vos sort et vous OS sans aucun problème. ”
“Its just Kassadin
Just farm up... poke a bit wait for jungler to come pre-6”
“Kassadin is pretty easy to play against. If he Q a minion, you E+W+Q him. This should allow with corrupt pot to make him back first and have TP advantage. If he R into you in a teamfight you R him. You should outshove him at level 6 and look for roams or to pressure the jungle. Start corrupt pot.”
“pain to bind, and magic shield to ruin your burst. Avoid trades entirely and farm what you can. Dont try to fight him 1 on 1”
“I'd say this match-up is a pretty lost cause after 6. His ult makes it very hard to land your E which is your means for escape and damage. He also does a lot of damage himself, so this is a bannable champ if you come across him a lot.”
“Ealy game you are pretty much ad so his q shield is usless aginst you. Freeze the lane and poke when he comes to farm.”
“Kassadin is an interesting matchup. You have similarly bad laning phases and deal incredible burst damage at level 6. Kassadin's burst in very telegraphed since he needs to stack his ult in order to deal noteworthy damage so if you see him ulting around, be wary of an engage. He is also very mana hungry so he will likely purchase an early catalyst or tear of the goddess and lack damage resulting in a weak early game. Use this time to hit him where it hurts.”
“Start cull, don't rely on your abilities. Harass him with auto attacks, stun him when he tries to farm. Ask for an early jungle gank. Otherwise, he'll get out of control.”
“Kassadin is pretty much a cockblock champion for Fizz. He has a magic shield on short cooldown, he can teleport almost infinitely at level 6, and he can engage on you or disengage from you whenever he wants. Your best bet to win this lane is to wait for him to get over aggressive and misplay or wait for jungler help.”
“Careful once he hits 6, he can teleport out of your E cage with his R”
“Kassadin is very tricky to deal with since he does a ton of damage if he gets ahead. His R allows him to get right in your face and even bypass your E. Very dangerous, so just wait until he slips up and gets caught in your E.”
“Weak in early. After lvl 6 you still should be able to trade damage with him”
“Kassadin most of the time shouldn't be much of an issue. Only time Kassadin might be difficult is if you're matched against a good Kassadin, who can dodge your Ult with his, and knows when to burst on you. That being said, be a bit careful early game when blowing CDs on him. I've nearly died because of it due to the Kassadin nuking me as I return behind the minions, with no E to escape with. Before level 6 you might get a bit annoyed by his poke, but once you get your Ult you can launch it at him and your combo should kill or nearly kill him. Even a good Kassadin might not be able to dodge your Ult with his, since Kassadin's teleport isn't as quick as a standard flash, so you shouldn't worry too much about Ulting on a Kassadin.”
“Man Countert Kassadin sehr einfach, er kann sich schlecht gegen Talons Q und W wehren.”
“Kassadin scales extremely hard into late game, if you fight one you will start to lose 1v1s most of the time if he gets a small lead and has his ult. ”
“KILL HIM PRE-6 CALL FOR ALL THE GANKS. YOU WANT HIM USELESS ASAP. ”
“He will always engage on you so charm him after he ults, but you don't win trades because of his shield and his health. Play safe, you can Q him when he goes for farm since he's melee but other than that just keep up in farm.”
“The Classic Counterpick. Take Conqueror, ask for jungle assistance, weave autos and kill pre-6. Rinse, wash and repeat.”
“The Classic Counterpick. Take Conqueror, ask for jungle assistance, weave autos and kill pre-6.”
“Start with Long Sword against Kassadin. His Q shield will absorb your skills. Use your E auto-attack resets as much as possible. ”
“He's a direct counter to Karthus. You're dead.”
“his ability to block your harass with his passive and Q as well as harass you back combined with his better scaling and mobility make Kassadin a champ you should simply avoid picking malzahar into, if thats not an option try to get help from allies to take him down.”
“I think its a good matchup, play with teleport he will do the same. Save W for his engage and trade back. ”
“Lane shouldn't be hard, but in late he will most probably one shot you with ease, so take care.”
“Pre-6 is a pretty easy lane. After 6 you have to avoid him or he'll dash onto you and kill you.”
“Lane phase should be okay. If he doesn't get any kills early, you should be fine. He will one shot later once he gets 2-3 damage items. Try to stay away from his Q range.”
“Ouch. A good kassadin will turn on your ass the second you go in. You might knock him up, you might q-aa-r, but he's not gonna die if he got his q off. Then he'll proceed to oneshot you. However, he's weak before and a few minutes AFTER he buys RoA. ”
“Kassadin is an extremely hazardous champion for Azir, specifically in the lategame.
Kassadin has the ability to hop over walls and end you.
In the laning phase, auto attack thie mofk as much as you can when he goes up to melee farm minions.
Try to get him behind early.”
“He can dodge well with his ¨flash¨”
“Another champion which is pretty dangerous for kat. Magic shield, silence, escape from daggers.”
“Let him push the lane in towards you early on, but not so much to where it crashes into your turret. Poke him whenever he goes for any cs, and once you build a big enough lead look to the sidelanes to try and gain an advantage. Post 6 the lane becomes much harder, and I would recommend just shoving him in as safely as you can in order to prevent him from roaming. ”
“These champs are fairly hard to lane against and are usually assassins (e.g. kassadin, leblanc, fizz, etc.) Also include champs like cassiopeia, annie, galio, etc.”
“Abusable avant le niveau 6. Il faut profiter du cooldown important de son R avant le niveau 11 pour le tuer.
Son Q peut cancel le Z de Gragas.”
“It's really hard to exploit Kassadin's weak early game as Lissandra due to his passive and Q magic damage shield blocking a majority of your damage in lane. He will out damage you in every phase of the game and will out sustain any damage you deal to him in the early game. ”
“Punish him as much as you can. Q him when he goes for a minion, force him to use Q to cs so he can't use it on you.
After 6 you R -> wait for him to ult -> W on him and tripple Shuriken him for a quick kill. He outscales you hard though, keep that in mind.”
“His ult is annoying so save your ult for him.”
“You have a jump. He has a jump with a shorter cool down. Enough said.”
“This would be CRAZY to go up against, I have not done this yet. Fuck Kassadin and his bullshit passive, fuck his level 6 powerspike - I'm praying for you homie. AND NOW Presence of Mind is a thing? We really live in the darkest timeline.”
“In the early game you have an advantage against Kass and abuse that, since Kass scales very hard into the late and you have to delay that scale as much as possible. Find trades all the time and bait out his q.”
“Wait till Kassadin uses Q on minions before using your abilities to avoid his magic shield. Try to freeze under turret to deny farm. Your CS is very important in this matchup because Ahri beats Kass in laning, but loses as the game progresses. ”
“Early game free lane. Just poke him down and take the free farm/kill. But dont underestimate his damage in late. He still is an scaling asassin.”
“Start E lv 1 and shield whenever he uses Q onto you while you AA him. You win every trade and lane early on if done right. However Kass eventually gets stronger than Ori as game progresses. Look to freeze under tower and deny CS if you can while poking him. ”
“Try to kill him pre 6 and look out for ganks after he hits 6 ”
“His passive and Q shields are useless against you
You can zone him and force him to miss a lot of cs
Push him into tower and harras him (watch out for ganks)
If he casts R towards you all-in him
Use 3rd tune setup”
“The Anti-Mage is very frustrating to face due to his gap closers and magic damage shields.”
“Kassadin's passive reduce magic damage that he takes + he has mobility that can be superior to yours once he gets items. He's scaling is way better then yours but his weak point is laning phase and early mid game where his damage isn't that high and he's not mobile enough to perform 10 blinks in one teamfight. You need to try and poke him while not getting to close to him. his Q grands him shield that will absorb magic damage but it deals really small damage early so if you manage to land both of your Q damage you will be victorious in this trade. Once he and you hit level 6 you should try to bait him into using his Rift walk (ultimate) so he won't be able to blink away from your damage. Don't get caught by enemy jungler and you should be fine. Consider buying zhonya against him or banshee's veil (personal preference) don't skip defensive item this time”
“Anti-mage. Not really good against a bruiser. Also an assassin, so watch out.”
“Outscales you outroams you outdamages you outpokes you
trade with q and always counter roam .”
“after level 6 he can just melt you , no counterplay
“If he's smart and goes resolve secondary its gg, you have to kill early and hope to outplay through roaming unless you're ahead by a lot”
“You need to win lane before he gets his ult, otherwise you are guaranteed to lose.”
“flash every 4 seconds very fun haha
“He will dodge and delete you. Bully him for taking cs until lvl 6 then wait for ganks.”
“Abuse his weak laning, pressure of jungler is important. He snowballs easily once you start losing
[DETAILED MATCHUP INFORMATION BELOW]”
“Conqueror will somewhat deal with this with true damage but will still be countered”
“You should pretty easily win this matchup, as he is not that good at killing ad champs. (Passive and Q shield are useless against [[Zed]]) He will outpoke you prelevel 3, but once you get level 3, all in him. You outdamage him and he won't have ult to get away. ”
“Can silence, dodge, kill you. thats it. ”
“His kit was made to counter AP. You can use your chains to poke him since he doesn't really have any way to W you without his R. Once he does have his R, he can be a threat. Make sure he doesn't snowball by roaming.”
“Kassadin vai ganhar de você durante um bom tempo, mas logo depois não será um problema. Mesmo assim tome cuidado com ele.”
“Melee and quite low range with spells, you win before 6, and you deals a lot of damage after 6 so if he engages on you, you can try to kill him. Stun him after his R so he can't avoid it.”
“Can choose to either freeze and harass him or constantly shove him under tower and let him farm while you look for roams, it really depends on you. Isn't too scary and if he gets brave level 6 your damage is still higher than his.”
“This champs weak VS AD champs and Yasuo is no different. Poke him if he farms and all-in every chance you see. He can't do much to you early and at 6 if he is dumb enough to trade and Ult in, trade and kill him. Simple matchup. Just be careful that he scales hardcore later and can oneshot you.”
“Extremely difficult to fight after level 6. Attempt to zone off minions to delay level six.
Bait his Q and attempt to make good trades
“You bully him really hard early, but if he gets any lead its near impossible to comeback from. ”
“you lose this matchup. try and nag urself a kill early game because you win lv3”
“His Q poke is annoying so get MAW first. Fight him when he is OM or after his Q's magic shield is gone pre-6. You won't have much chance to kill him post-6 as he can use his R to get away easily. His R has 6 seconds cool down at lv 1 so try to fight him after he used his R. He might build ROA and become somewhat tanky, so you can get one of the two last whisper item when you're fed.”
“He's pretty susceptible to your high physical damage but he excels at getting in your face. Try to prevent him from scaling because he requires items to be useful”
“This is a match up where ROA works. Play safe and poke.”
“Personnellement je ne me pose plus de question je le ban il peut esquiver tout votre ultime et votre Z”
“He will always outtrade you because of his Q.
Try to fight him when he wasted his Q to lasthit a minion.
After 6, you better just push the lane and look for some roams because you will never kill Kassadin.”
“Pre 6 you can stomp him take advantage of that. At 6 hopefully you can Combo him when he jumps in. If he gets to ahead just try to be more passive. ”
“Its like a mini mid lane tank, with damage and mobility....
I prefer avoiding 1 v 1ing him, and farm/roam....”
“Pre-6, you win. Post-6, he sky rockets and will deal a ton of damage. Rush Banshee's Veil and I suggest to bully him pre-6.”
“Play passive and farm for the first two levels, using your E to negate Kassadin's Q when he tries to harrass with it. Level 3 and onwards, you can all-in him whenver his Q is down. Tank incoming Q damage if he chooses to harrass with it so it goes on cd, then initiate with Q. If he plays too far back after using Q, then you can freely push the wave and roam. You will generally have kill pressure as long as he walks up, but if he plays too passive, you will just be shoving the minion wave and roaming.”
“same as mordek but he have a chance with his ult, just a chance, you will counter anyway him.”
“Takes 15% reduced magic damage with his passive and can get a large magic shield from casting his q as well as being able to use his ult to blink out of your cage.”
“He can dodge ur ulti with his. Try to not be predictable when playing against him. His Q is longer than your so he will harass you a lot.”
“He counteres mages, but you my friend are no mage. You do more damage then him faster, and in this case i think opening with R is just as good as W. R him, then when he R's just W. If he then FLashes just also flash.”
“Kass, F*cking Kass, counters Karthus since its launch, before level 6 you can try to lower your life with Q, but after level 6 you do not dare to advance more of the river if you do not know where it is, I will burst me down every time I see you, cancel your R with your Q or killing you, have an anti magic shield, your E is loaded with your Q and ganks every time you are holding the line.”
“Big problem for you. He has probably the best late game from champions in whole game. But he received armor nerf in this patch, so try to f*ck him up in early game as much, as you can, because he is getting stronger every minute in the game. But be careful! Don't die unnecessarily! Every time he kills you, it will much more difficult for you. He can also cancel your ult by using his silence from his Q, so be careful about that, he can also escape by his R on level 6. Ask for multiple gang on him.”
“Kassadin is probably one of your worst fears because you probably won't be able to win against him in all stages of the game. In this matchup pre 6 you want to avoid getting poked by his Q as much as you can while trying to farm. You won't be able to win or "hardly" win trades against him because of the magic shield from his Q since he will outsustain you if he bought corrupting potion first. If not and you manage to win trades then you can pressure him from farming. The moment he turns lvl 6 you should avoid getting in his ult range and try to safely farm.”
“Simplesmente consegue parar todas suas fontes de dano e te burstar em segundos, um dos piores matchups.”
“Kassadin is basically the on paper counter because of the magic damage reduction passive. But if you can get him before he builds health items he wont be much of an issue until late game. late game with the element of surprise you can win a fight.”
“He isn't tanky, all in him at 2-3.
Watch out late game though, he can shread you.”
“He weak early game like u If u have void staff u can beat hims passive The kassadins players are know trade when u come ur bloodrage use ur basic attack Hes shield can not dodge ur basic attack He can escape from u but also come nearly good luck”
“after 6 he can destroy you in lane”
“Laugh in his face pre-6. Cower in fear post-6. Kassadin can be a major problem if they play him correctly, so try and abuse Kassadin pre-6 so he doesn't snowball or gain a lead. Don't burn too many abilities near him either, as this is what powers his E. Kassadin has built in MR, so I'd recommend getting Void Staff before Liandry's, and making laning phase a farm lane. Kassadin is very mana hungry pre-6, but his W restores mana. Try to poke Kassadin and force him to sit under tower if possible when he tries to W a minion or even you so he can't restore his missing mana. ”
“simple matchup, you out shove, and out damage him, his q will just about pop your shield, you can also wind wall his q.”
“Buy a Dorans shield and play safe and you should be fine on laning.”
“Don't be overconfident if you will be outplaying him at early stages. There will come time, probably around level 9, where he will start winning. He can use R's dashes to dodge all yours abilities and then blow you away.”
“He is your hardest counter. Kassadin can dodge your abilities with ease and interupt your ult with his Q.”
“You can bully him easily before level 6. Force him to Q minions to last-hit them.
If he blinks to you to combo you after level 6, throw your E at him while his R's on cooldown, throw a Q, and run. Just generally don't let him come near you.
His R has a 6/4/2 second cooldown, so up until level 16/he caps CDR, that gives you a short window when he won't be able to dodge your E.
Remember that he takes 15% reduced magic damage. A combo that might oneshot any other mid laner may not be as effective on Kassadin.
Kassadin really likes to tower dive. If he attempts this, put him to sleep and run.”
“His whole kit outscales you after 6. Your only opportunity to beat this guy is to get ganks pre 6 or just cry. Must ban IMO.”
“How to counter: Avoid Q poke and if you are going to cage, use the cage to stun him, not trap him.”
“ABUSE EARLY. If u don't u lose late. Ask for jg pre-6 for help”
“You might think that kass will counter you in lane very hard but its really depending on how you build and play. You should try to bait the Q and then engage and build double long swords because of his Q passive.”
“After he hit 6 lanes he comes harder to kill but before that easy lane.”
“Try to setup jungle gank with your 2 slows pool and E.”
“he will only have his Q and W to poke you, easy match up, get Mercury's treads and Hex, you'll be okay.”
“Kassadin does counter Veigar in the late game but he is slow to ramp up. In lane phase he'll mainly just poke you with Q and try to farm himself. By the time he's a major threat you should already have your GLP and be ready to roam, so you don't have to worry that much about him jumping on you in lane. Banshee's Veil is a good buy for second item. ”
“Anti-mage but not anti-talon, strong in meta though, wait for him to use Q or R to all in as its his main source of damage.”
“Who even plays this guy? Predict his ultimate whenever you feel like he'll initiate and just burst him down.”
“Noone plays normal games.”
“While kassadin has reliable autopoke, like you he has poor waveclear, look to outsustain him, in the early game, and avoid over trading, as your spell casts empower him. you are very similar in playstyle so the matchup could go either way. if you want to be aggressive wait for jungle presence ”
“U have the advantage once u get lvl 3. Before that keep ur distance from his Q range”
“His 6 allows him to counter your E and go aggressive, outtrading you. However, he is extremely weak pre 6 due to being melee and only having one source of ranged damage. Use this to your advantage and punish him accordingly. You should have an equal laning phase.
Warning - This champion can and will roam to counter a safe playstyle. Ping accordingly.”
“he is easy in the beginning but a little more difficult in late”
“Early game Kassadin can easily poke you and out trade you due to his passive, usually kassadin will take grasp and out trade you since you're a melee champ”
“The biggest Problem I have against Kassa: He always escapes :) Dont get into Late game with him as enemy.”
“Destroy Him Pre-6 and ask for gank after 6. Play safe than sorry~”
“He is just broken right now, so hard to win lane against especially when he hits level 6. Try to play safe.”
“Kassadin is a bit tricky, if you give him any kind of lead, he will take it and shove it in your face time 10. But if you are able to play it right you will stop him from being able to do anything in the game. ”
“A mobile mage-countering assassin with a blink who can easily avoid your skills. You can zone him off pre-6 pretty well, but once he has his blink, he's scary. Wait until after a blink to do your combo, so that you can catch him.”
