“ Be aware of where she throws her daggers, and if she can trade on you freely without giving you a chance to answer. You can often try to bait her by standing on her daggers and forcing her to take several autos if she wants to use them. Be diligent in telling your team where she is, because no matter how far ahead you get on her, she can still roam bot and get a triple kill and be back into the game. ”
“Very easy late game of course but early game don't stand near the daggers and when she E's out of position punish her for it. Her all in isn't as strong as yours. If either of you decide to all in then dodge Kat's ult with your Pool and Kat will die spinning and doing nothing.”
“Play this match-up reasonably passive and don't give her free kills. Harass her as often as you can when she goes to last hit a minion. Stun her whenever she tries to ulti you.
DO NOT use (R) Tibbers to stun her as there is a high chance she can leap away before it lands. Instead, use your (Q) Disintegrate to stun her and then hit her with (R) Tibbers.
Be aware of her leaving lane for roaming kills. This often happens and she will get fed from other lanes if you don't keep track and ping or follow her.
Katarina is squishy and you should have no problem 100 - 0 her after level 6.”
“REACTIVE lane, not proactive. At level 1, I'll E-AA and after that I'll only poke with E. At level 2 she usually looks for an opportunity to Q+E+AA+dagger passive+electrocute and burst me down, so I take W second and negate a lot of her damage while I out-trade her with E-AA (and I keep autoattacking as she runs away). Fighting in my minion wave also draws aggro and makes it harder for her to win trades. At level 3 she definitely wants to go in, so I stay out of her Q range - unless I have significantly more HP than her (or have Barrier up) and want to bait her. I'll shield myself as she jumps and will use E and keep autoattacking her, holding my Q until she has no more E resets. Most of the time she forgets I still have Barrier and keeps fighting me. She's the ultimate snowballing champion, so she's constantly looking for roams and I need to keep the pixel bush towards bot lane warded, or my own jungle to see her if she takes that path.”
“I hate Kat, so even if this match up is Ori favored I think its ridiculous that I can't be comfortable poking her because she can one shot me off E.”
“She plays very passive at lvl 1, farming safely with Q. If she uses Q to harass you, just zone her from CS. Try to harass as much as possible with your [[Steel Tempest]] at early levels. When she gets lvl 3, she can all in you. You can predict where her daggers will land, so move away from it before she can [[Shunpo]] to them. You have a huge advantage if you both fight in a minion wave, as you can dash around and dodge most of her abilities. When she hits 6 and ults, you want to [[Wind wall]] and then [[Sweeping Blade]] through her, so the wall blocks out most of the damage. **When** you are going for the tornado, wait using it and bait out her E, or beyblade her. ”
“Land a grenade as soon as she Ults or comes into melee distance. Unless Kata gets fed early she should be easy to deal with due to being a melee AP assassin.”
“you win her easily, when she jumps on you and you are level 3 just go for e and w
if you are lvl 6 ult her and then go for e and w”
“Although she is mobile, she is quite predictable with her blinks. You can bait her into blinking to her dagger and landing a rupture on her. After that, you can all in her pretty easily, and she suffers a lot from your silence. In teamfights, save silence for her ult, as it makes her pretty useless without it.
See video of how it's done below:
“Hold stun to interrupt her ult, and try not to go anywhere without vision.”
