Tips Against Maokai in the Jungle Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors

LordGrox says “Has a lot of CC you need to watch out for. Outside of that he should be free to kill. Respect his sapplings, as they provide a ton of vision control.”

PerfectPower says “Really annoying with saplings and CC. However, you can W his ultimate. ”

Kocykek says “Maokai can be a tricky matchup since now he can go AP and throw saplings anywhere in bushes. With that snowball as hard as you can. Gank many times and make sure your teammates are ahead. Also you can pray for the infernal map since it is the worst Maokai's map. If you have any trouble grab Magic Resist. Early on you can easily outdamage him.”
checca says “Maokai is relatively easy to play against. His Q can cancel your E as you are about to land on him, and he can also dodge your E with his W invulnerability. These, together with his R, are really the only counters to you, so be aware of this because timing your abilities wrong will render you useless. Then and again, Maokai is a tank, which Zac counters. You will always win a 1v1 with Maokai post level 6 if you time your abilities correctly.”

Bhyure33 says “You can kill him 1v1, and he usually doesn't get that fed. Maybe look for an early invade.”

Lasine says “Unkillable tank. He can cc lock you while holding his dick with the other hand.”

RedNBlue says “Easy kill, Maoki has a slow early clear, and is just slow for the whole game really. Not a threat, if they pick maoki Jungle blind, Mundo is a go to pick.”

Xerath gaming says “No one plays Maokai on top anymore but he can dodge your E and Q with his root so if u do fight him on top just let him engage you and you should win it. When you get R there's no way for him to win”

Tips Against Maokai as a Support Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors

Toches says “If he saves his W to juke your E, you can be in for a bad time, but mostly this matchup goes even and you outscale him, your ulti is stronger and at best he neutralizes it with his, but your base kit is better. poke maokai is garbage as support due to season 12 changes, you easily outheal it and he basically will be a glorified shaco support.”
iveye says “Maokai is a lane you have to play by his rules, if he throws his E bait it with your high move speed. You can get to him so you have to counter engage on his carry, and always make sure to tank a root from his ult for your carry or else you will most likely lose the fight. His R also shuts most of your engage down but it moves so slow that you could get what you wanted in time before it reaches you anyway.”
Rell Support Season 13.1 by iveye | Rell Player
mellorwastaken says “similar as Leona and Amumu, you can win with short trades, if he goes ap his lane will be much weaker since you can heal with passive and hes much more squishy. His W-Flash combo is hard to react so be careful. Always go unflinching.”
Mellor's Pyke Support Guide [13.1] by mellorwastaken | Pyke Player
T1vladimir says “Throws Saplings with ETips into side bushes as damaging wards. ETips is stronger if placed in bushes. RTips can only hit one target with each bramble; stay in line with your tank on the front rather than scattered around. Grievous items are effective against his PTips healing.”
Lulu Build-Support by T1vladimir | Lulu Player
Amelioratelol says “Maokai can dodge your hook with his [W] and is fairly tanky so you will need an evenshroud to be able to kill him as most tanks. Grevious will help and someone with black cleaver will drop his armor.”
Grandmaster [12.23] Blitzcrank Guide by Ameliorate by Amelioratelol | Blitzcrank Player
WhiteLotus says “They will look for early Bot gank most of the time, care about his Flash W. Else he is only a useless Tree, that you can Poke out of lane if u keep your distance ”
gizemdeniz says “He will drop minions in the bush and jump on you. When he jumps on you, you have to lock him with a charm and inflict some high damage with a good combo. With a good ADC he can be dangerous.”
Flexible Utility Support by gizemdeniz | Ahri Player
mazewalk says “He also has good CC and tons of sustain, but he has E, which will annoy you a lot. Escape his ult with your E, keep your distance so he doesn't get you with W+Q combo. Pray he won't build AP items and max E.”
Zac Support [12.22] by mazewalk | Zac Player
aRhesty says “Obviously try and NEVER get hit by his W, his W counters you. However, as long as you space correctly you'll find that you can win more often than not. E early while he's chasing you so he doesn't get in that critical W range. ”

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

YorickTopOnly says “We are in for a tank meta. Even though he has been nerfed in recent patches, along with embrace being nerfed, Mao is still strong, as a top and a jg. ”
Vixylafoen says “He can do a lot of damage, but you will always outtrade him and he's forced into getting into your barrels if he wants to have any hope of killing you”
Make em walk the Gangplank by Vixylafoen | Gangplank Player
Reines Kokosfett says “Like all drain tanks, your Q has insane value and you can just statcheck him. Be careful of him knocking you into a bush with lot's of sapling, especially when dismouted. He can dodge your Q with his W if he has good timing. Without his empored saplings he doesn't have enough damage to finish you off when dismounted.”
Kled Guide by Reines Kokosfett | Kled Player
Ulamog says “Grasp Build; Second Wind + D Shield. Parry one of his Q's or his E. Post 6 hold parry for his R. You can even Q+W it. Grasp trade and don't let him Q you for free ever. You also bait it out before Q-ing in OR sidestep it.”
stefanko says “Never q on him first, wait for him to push you away and then you can q. Make sure to not get baited by Maokai pulling you into wave when you dont have e up. (conqueror)”

Zeffie says “Maokai is in a decent place at the moment champ wise, into Sejuani he can dodge CC with his dash and throw you about as well as chip you away with his bush friends. His ult can easily set himself and any jgl ganks up really well while completely negating most reactions from you.”
Sejuani top guide by Zeffie | Sejuani Player
Galactities says “He's just another one of those champs where you build that same anti tank crap, rush black cleaver if he rushes armor or rush bork if he rushes health. Merc treads and Conq are best here. Careful of his saplings. His gank setup is great so be careful of that. You win early trades.”

Biba or OTP Kled says “Tank base:My room plant,Kled beats every tank easy 'cuz he is strong in early when tanks need to scale first”

Tonho says “Your Q stays on him even if he uses his W. You pretty much always win the trade, as he can't properly deal with your E. BORK is effective here.”
dzsama says “Can be semi-difficult to kill as he has built in sustain and he can just Q you if you try to jump on him. After 6 and with a couple items he shouldn't be a problem to you though. Again, be careful since he can setup ganks quite well.”
