“Recommended: Sustain Runes & Teleport
Tips: Don't E in. Dodge or passive shield her Q and E poke. W her Empowered W-AA. E backwards through her when she ults. This is literally the worst matchup for Shen.”
“Neeko is an absolute nightmare to deal with even though she has been tuned down and her damage has mellowed out. She is everything Teemo is, but better. If you get rooted you are pretty much dead, as you can't avoid being hit by her (Q) which will pulsate & splash multiple times. She will set off your (R) with her (W) which is annoying as hell. Don't show her where you've been placing shrooms as they do this in bushes, from lane and the corners of the walls setting them off prematurely. If they go full on-hit with PTA you're going to have a horrible time dealing with them as there isn't much you can do since their range is higher than yours. A good neeko will ruin your day.”
“TL;DR - EVEN MATCHUP IN HER FAVOUR IF SHE BUILDS AP. DIFFICULT MATCHUP IF SHE BUILDS AD. CONQUEROR. DSHIELD WITH SECOND WIND AND UNFLINCHING ARE MANDATORY. IF YOU ARE TAKING CONQUEROR, TAKE TENACITY. IF SHE IS BUILDING AP, BUILD MERCS. IF SHE IS BUILDING AD, BUILD STEELCAPS. PLAY PATIENTLY. WAIT FOR HER TO MISPOSITION. THEN PULL HER IN AND RUN HER DOWN. DON’T STAND CLOSE TO HER. GIVE UP CS IF NEEDED. DON’T STAND TOO CLOSE TO YOUR OWN MINIONS. DON’T GET HIT BY HER STUN. DON’T LET HER HIT YOU WITH HER EMPOWERED AUTO.
The Neeko matchup is very difficult to deal with for an inexperienced Darius. Her abilities are difficult to dodge as her stun gets faster when it passes through minions. The hitbox on it is very tricky to dodge, as it will not look like it hit you even though it did sometimes. Up against Neeko, you really need to play carefully. Once you kill her once, you will snowball really hard to the point where she really can’t do anything to you but up until that point, you simply need to be patient. Neeko’s early damage is INSANE. Don’t even try to trade with her level 1. Level 2 might work once you have your E but I’d still recommend being patient until level 3, as at that point you will have enough CC and slows to run her down. The good part is that if you hit her with an ability before she makes a clone of herself, your bleed stacks will be visible on the actual Neeko. Not to mention how your Q heals you when you hit Neeko’s clone with it. Start Dshield along with Second Wind and Unflinching. Conqueror works very well in this lane, as you sometimes need the damage to punch through her shield. Not to mention how by taking Precision into Resolve, you should be able to run max Tenacity which helps against Neeko. In this vain, an early Merc boots help against her a lot if she is going AP. AP Neeko does a LOT more poke damage which makes getting caught by her stun much more punishing. AD Neeko on the other hand is a different matter. AD Neeko with PTA is going to be able to take half of your HP bar away in SECONDS early on. DO NOT let her get her empowered auto attacks off on you. AD Neeko’s abilities and ultimate are quite terrible but her damage can be very surprising. If the Neeko builds AD, you’d better have packed tenacity in runes because you are going to NEED Steelcaps. Be patient. AD Neeko is still beatable. Just try to remain healthy throughout the lane and wait for the perfect opportunity. An AD Neeko, once behind, is going to do much less in teamfights than an AP Neeko who is behind.”
“This matchup is simply annoying, try your best to dodge her E since it's quite a long root and allows her to follow up with the rest of her combo, also remember If Tangle-Barbs (her E) hits at least one enemy, it grows in size and speed, and the root duration is increased. So it can be smart to play outside of your minion wave and not give her those free angles, if it's AP neeko which most are now once you have some magic resist this matchup gets a lot easier, you can also save your E to get out of her R since she stops when she goes up in the air and you have a bit of time to get out of the circle.”
“ Her stun lasts a century, and her Q does insane amount of burst, and it’s undodgeable obviously if you get hit by her stun. Her decoy ability (W) also makes her harder to catch. Think about the matchup like a 10x harder version of kennen. In lane, try to survive, and make sure to at least attempt to dodge the stuns, and try to farm under turret and keep up in cs. Post level 6 and sheen, if she misses her stun, should immediately look to all in her, even if it fails, at least trade flash ghost for flash. This lane usually makes Nasus really behind, and coming out of lane down a lot of gold.”
“Neeko is rarely seen toplane but when she is picked top she is very annoying. Her snare seems to last forever and it's very hard to dodge cause it's fast and goes through minions. You can tank most of her damage however. You will likely be more useful mid game when you group with your team.”
“Watch these Neeko Interactions to see combos for every ability and how to counter them as Quinn.
Play aggro early, and use E aggressively, then side step after E to bait her Root. Stay in E range of Neeko because she out ranged you, so if you are in E trande, you can trade with her at all points in the lane.
Your harriers reveal which neeko is real.
Post 6, E her when she ults to bounce of of it.
Like any Mage matchup, if she uses Q on the wave, instantly vault for a trade because that is most of her damage.”
“Neeko is pretty obnoxious for Thresh, ADC or otherwise. Her clone cancels your auto since it makes her invisible and, of course, you can mistakenly auto the clone if she does it properly. Her ult is impossible to avoid if she lands her root and she has good auto and spell poke. Playable if you have the right support (engage like Leona) but terrible if you don't. Fortunately, you'll probably never see Neeko support”
“Neeko is quite an annoying champion to face. She will probably try to rush level 2 for her burst damage so keep that in mind. I'd suggest you wait for level 3 until you have Windwall before you tarde with her.
Do short, 2-3 sec. trades and wait for your Windwall to come off cooldown. If you manage to avoid her snare, then you can go in and trade.
I'd suggest to buy hexdrinker after PD because her ult damage is quite big, you can't escape it (unless you have flash) and you can't stop it.
You can actually use your ult on her while she becomes invisible for a split sec. and separates in 2.”
“Annyoing opponent. Get Doran Shield to and Mercury for laning. Early sheen for fighting Neeko and kill potential. ”
