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

Feedaboi says “Kennen is able to pick fights whenever he desires with his range advantage in the lane. He is able to disengage very easily with his e + passive w stun and is a pain to punish since he can just sit back and q farm until his jungler is ready for a gank. In this lane look to q "bear trap on a rop" farm and freeze the wave near your turret until your jungler is able to assist you.”

Sovereign Kitten says “Playing aggressive against him early and shoving him under his tower tends to be the better option, as he suffers from the same effect we have when pushed in. Side step his abilities and try not to get too close when you are hit, as he can stun you. If you are under your tower, and he decides to all in you with his (R) it would be wise to have a stopwatch in the early game, if you wanna be extra cautious. When he uses Zhonya's Hourglass and & tries to flash away shroom his feet immediately as he enters stasis as he nor any other champion can flash out of setting it off as they changed how it interacts.”

BoilTheOil says “Go Fleet Footwork. Annoying ass rat champion, you only kill him if his monitor is turned off. He beats you in lane and he outscales you. Make sure to follow his tp plays. Try to ult him away from ur team when he ults. Pray ur team is better.”

I Am Goliath says “Kennen is just annoying in lane and hard to kill but he shouldn't really kill you either, early merc treads can be good since he has a lot of CC, flash E can also secure you kills in this lane, but you probably won't be going for many normal E's unless he gets out of position or you bait him in well. Both champs scale pretty decently in teamfights but he can't do anything against your splitpush pressure in a sidelane so simply push him in and look for roams and tp plays in the mid game.”

RivalOCE says “Can be annoying but doesn't really have kill pressure. You win if even at 6, rush tenacity.”

Drake6401 says “I haven't faught a top lane Kennen yet but I faced him as Ahri in mid once. His poke is dreadful even to her. This means hell for top laners. The mobility and poke Kennen has is metaphorical cancer. He also has a lot of stuns when he ults so Legend tenacity is a must pick rune. Mercs will help also.”

Anoying bro5 says “You can start Corrupting Potions or Dorans shield. In laning phase try to avoid his Qs and be mindful of how many shock stacks he has applied to you. Do not let him harass you early with poke. Farm and try to go for short trades and learn the pattern of his stun. Once you have 2 shock stacks, wait about .5 seconds to parry as he will most likely use his W then. Try to play for late game, and buy Quick silver sash for team fights”

MrDomian says “Don't fight on the first levels. Be the first to trade with your R.”
quinn adc says “I hear about a lot of Quinn's who struggle into Kennen, but recently I've come to almost master the matchup and I hardly have trouble into Kennen now with this build/playstyle. Read this section carefully, and if you can apply it, then Quinn will hard win the Kennen matchup during laning phase. I will first explain Kennen's passive because it's important to know Kennen's objective in the lane in order for you to be one step ahead of him. Kennen's passive functions where Kennen's abilities mark enemy champions with Mark of the Storm for 6 seconds that stacks up to 3 times, and if he stacks 3 marks on you, then he will stun you and restore energy. To win the Kennen lane as Quinn, your objective is to bait out his Q either by side-stepping Kennen's Q in lane, OR wait for Kennen to wiff his Q on minions. Now, when Kennen uses his Q ability and it does not hit you, then you should immediately engage on Kennen for a trade. Your goal in the trade is to proc your PTA on him, and if you are able to land your Q blind on kennen, then go for a longer trade because he can't retaliate if he is blinded. The reason we wait for Kennen to waste his Q before we go in is because Kennen will simply not be able to apply his passive on us during the trade if he doesn't land his Q, which will result in Quinn hard winning the trade. Important to note is to try to not use your E vault on Kennen while Kennen's E, Lightning Rush, is up because us vaulting kennen with his E active will apply a mark of his passive on us, so keep that in mind. If you want to play the matchup even more 5head, then click on Kennen's champion in lane, and on the upper-left corner it will say how many stacks he has on his W passive. Kennen's W passive functions where every 4th auto is empowered that also applies a mark of his passive. If you see that he wastes the 4th hit on a minion, then you can engage on him to go for a quick trade before backing off because you will be able to back off in time before he is able to reach 4 stacks to apply the passive mark on you. Now, post level 6 is obviously the scary part. Quinn's E, vault actually pushes you at perfect range outside of Kennen's ult, but this interaction is quite difficult to pull off because usually Kennen will ult you not directly in front of you, which means he will likely stun you and nuke you before you can vault away to avoid the stun. Just play post level 6 a bit safely and don't take bad trades. If you aren't super far behind, then Kennen's R shouldn't be able to 100-0 you with Nullifying orb rune. Your goal though if he ults on you is to vault away when you can, and don't fight him inside his ultimate. The cooldown is 2 minutes, so if he ults you, then you can play the latter part of the lane the way I recommended by engaging when he dodges Q. Just don't play too aggresive when Kennen's R is up :) I recommend to watch youtube videos for how I play against Kennen on the side here so you can see exactly how I win trades against Kennen in action.”

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

Xelikari says “A good kennen can be tough, he'll definitely zone you off a little bit early-- it's okay to be down in CS. Watch out for his W-empowered auto and remember if he can land his Shuriken, you can land your Harpoon! Rush Mercury Treads.”

Drewmatth Taliyah says “Start Doran + 2 Pots if 1) You think you can outplay her and hit your W's to generate a kill at levels 3-5 or 2) You think she will burst you down post 6 (get an extra ring). Start Corrupting if you think you will not hit your W's (or you will get poked down) and you rely more on wave clear/spammy poke (you will be way more squisher but more durable -- this is recommended if you are sure you will not get hit by CC spells and instantly die). Get some early MR such as Null Mantle for Mercs or part of Banshees. Kennens kill power comes from his ultimate ONLY, so you having some magic resist will absolutely deny him that. Besides that in teamfights if you can try to target him down if you engage before he ults. If not just roam and play safe on lane just by shoving. You can kill him but he will be slippery due to his E. Careful on your jungler ganks since his ult is a very strong aoe spell and can turn the fight around if their jungler counterganks.”

Katasandra says “[1] Dodge his Q. [2] If he tries to E, W and walk away. [3] If he tries to ult, E, walk at him, W and E before you get stunned. [4] Shove him in and visit the botlane or some other place you'd like to see.”

WayOfTheTempesst says “Annoying esp if they take electrocute and ignite. Take fleet and dshield and just play for short trades. Take unflinching and 2nd wind and just sit on a magic mantle so he can not full to 0 you. Also I would take Exh in this matchup esp if ur support doesnt take it. Exh is the biggest counter against Ken.”

WayOfTheTempesst says “Insane poke, all in, tankiness, this champ has it all. Try not to get poked down too much early and look to trade lvl 2 and when his passive W is 0 stacks. MR is a must in this lane, one of the rare times rushing mercs is very effective due to kennen being able to stun you multiple times. If they are heavy AP you can also get a hex to avoid getting bursted by him. Predict his Qs with windwall when going for an all in. His very small hitbox makes it very hard to hit tornados on him so it's usually better to get your knock on him by just EQing on to him.”

Dr Eggmund says “Kennen has great poke so position yourself wisely so you can farm from harms reach. When you try to go for a level 6 all in make sure you either have ult advantage or are confident that his ult won't stun and punish you.”

Yasukeh says “ He can very easily poke you out, and if you try to get onto him he can just stun you and speed away. If he doesn't take phase rush, it can be much easier to get on top of him. If he ever blows his E, you can fairly easily kill him. Heavily consider taking Legend: Tenacity into this matchup, as it will help not getting perma-stunned. ”
