“Not bad until he hides in your ADC.
SHADOW: He's really annoying with his super mobility. Hard as hell to outplay, Q him if you're lucky enough to hit it otherwise just cry on him.
DARKIN: Much easier to outplay, he's immobile. Easy to land Q's, don't 1v1, either of 'em don't feed.”
“You need to try to bully kayn quite hard early on. If kayn gets form early on, he might popoff quite hard.”
“After 10.25 Kayn nerfs, this matchup has become easier. In this matchup, you can bully him before transform to try and establish a jungle and lane lead before he hits transform. Ignite and Phase Rush can be helpful to establish an early lead or you can opt for a more scaling build path like Crit or Bruiser to contest his powerful late game, but this will require strong/winning lanes that can survive pressure while you scale. Grit stacking for first scuttle is essential to pick up a free lead if Kayn contests at scuttle.”
“A very difficult matchup, he counters you in many ways so don't mess with him much, just farm up and get your lanes rolling.”
“Kayne has a really solid interrupt for Power Ball and so much damage and sustain. ”
“Not too bad of a match up until he transforms into Rhaast, however, it is hard to punish Kayn outside your spires so avoid fighting him then so as not to give him free transformation stacks. If he transforms to Rhaast you won't be able to fight him, but he is vulnerable to crowd control as he can't heal if he is stunned and becomes very squishy. Look to CC lock him if you have your team around, otherwise avoid fighting him.”
“Kayn is extremely easy to bully in the early game, but if he gets ahead of you he can be a real pain. Try to counter gank and keep him down in the early game. Be hyper aware of moving in a way that will help you dodge his W's, as that is a core part of his kit. If you build lethality and are a little ahead, you can 1 shot him with your combo before he can ult you. ”
“pretty strong jungler at the moment across all elo's. Definely a must ban for hecarim. Reason why he's so op is because of the healing from red form and goredrinker + black cleaver build which makes him unkillable.”
“One of the more annoying matchups because of his clear speed and his ability to gank. Try to build some form of healing reduction if he is going red Kayn. Don't let the game go on too long or else you will just lose without crowd control to lock him down.”
“Red Kayn is a great counter to any tank. High sustain, can interrupt your R with his knock up, hard to pin down, and can threaten objective steals. Great clear speed as well.”
