“Early game champ, a good Kindred player will invade your blue level 2 and even trying to chase you.
In this case, consider a blue start.
Counterjungling and denying stacks are the key to win against Kindred.”
“Rek'sai can threaten kindred at most points in the game. The new items in season 11 make this match up really easy as it is very difficult for Kindred to kite you. Playing around her ult post 6 and you should be fine.”
“Kindred is like a Graves but weaker level 1. From then on, he only gets stronger. Will easily kite you and you won't be able to one shot him because his ultimate will save him. Kindred will actively look for you in the jungle in the early game. Try to avoid fighting him. ”
“Kindred can prove to be a hard matchup as her kit allows her to kite like crazy. Being able to deal damage while constantly being in motion proves to be a struggle for Kayn, especially when dueling in 1v1’s. Mix this with the fact that she has Lamb’s Respite (R) to prevent you from one-shotting as Shadow Assassin. Typically, you want to power farm and play for form in this matchup. Also, try to minimize her stacks by killing your marked camps before she does. Once you have form, as Rhaast try using your Blade’s Reach (W), to immediately knock her up after she uses her Dance of Arrows (Q). Your goal as Rhaast is to force her to use her Lamb’s Respite (R) as you will be able to outsustain her. Going Shadow Assassin, you want to be able to bait out her ultimate before using your Umbral Trespass (R) or else she will always be able to deny your one-shot combo.”
“Kindred can win fights if they keep you at max range and kite, or they can outplay you with their ult. In order to win 1v1, catch them facechecking or use Flash advantage to prevent them from kiting you. You can block the final proc of E to keep yourself healthy. Against post-6 Kindred, either burn their ult fast and use a delayed E to win after it expires, or focus on killing targets that can't be saved by Kindred (or kill Kindred if their ult is on cooldown).”
“Kindred is all about denying her scaling. You can 1v1 her early if you have good positioning, but beware her kiting potential as it is very high. Make sure you use her ult to your advantage and save your stuns for when it's ending. Early game focus on denying her marks, which means winning the Scuttle wars.”
“Jump on her first, and you should have no problem against her. Just make sure to make the first move.”
“How much of a threat level Kindred is highly depends on how good she is at kiting. If she's really good at kiting, you're in trouble. She has slows, she has % health damage, and she has range. The plus side to this match up is that you can pull her out of her ult with your ult.”
“Has insane slow on E and can punish you in the early game by invading you at red, make sure to have your eyes peeled for invades. ”
“Beware his early ganking power and try to track. Shoot your Q just before the end of her ult to lock her down and kill.”
