“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.
SEASON 11 EXTRA: He's been impacted pretty bad by the item changes as far as I've seen, obliterate him in the early game and he'll have a very hard time catching 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.”
“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.”
“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.”

“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.”
“Pretty much impossible for you to actually kill him, so he will simply outscale you for free. Your only chance here is to coordinate with your jungler and try to put him behind early.”
“Hard outscales and has surprisingly good trades. Look to E him lvl 1 and consistently up until he hits 6. Once he hits 6 he will be hard to kill and will trade evenly with you. You do tons of damage to him since you are an AD champ but be aware because he can dish out a lot himself. Get hexdrinker after your second item if he isn't far behind.”
“THIS LANE. Is almost as hard as Fizz but not really. You're big advantage is your 1-5. You need to play this lane VERY aggressive and be on hyper alert from junglers. Get him under tower as fast as possible and poke him out of lane. The more autos the better, trade out autoing him over tower considering the tower wont take much damage pre minute 5. Use charms and Q when he walks up for cs. Try to encourage your jungler to play aggressive and get good wards in enemy jungle. Roam only when needed and punish kass as much as possible. If played correctly once you both hit 6, he still shouldn't be as much of a problem but if out of control you NEED help. I suggest banning him”
“Kassadins started to adapt to Katarina lately, most of them play with electro+boneplating+armor in stats and ignite, this allows them to have a incredible kill pressure in lane at level 3, and they can fight you and trade very easily.
Best option is to start LONGSWORD+3POTS or DSWORD+1POT and going for CONQUEROR+BONEPLATING + X2 MR IN STATS , rushing BOTRK is the best option so far, once you have BOTRK CLOSED you can easily win 1v1's into Kassadin.
Make sure to NOT GET POKED BEFORE LEVEL 3 AND TO NOT TAKE A ANY TRADE WITH YOUR BONEPLATING ON COOLDOWN! , if you reach level 3 full health you can win the one on one into Kassadin if you play correctly and use your AUTO-ATTACK'S DAMAGE + CONQUEROR
