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

Doubtfull says “Take phaserush in the match up and kite Olaf. There isn't really much he can do. Post 6 he is kind of annoying, as he can cleanse your ult with his own. beware using W in this match up.”

Stinkee says “Olaf is an insane early game champion. He will constantly throw axes at you and try to all in you at level 2-3. Once he is level 6 it gets even worse when he ults and is immune to all of your CC making you near useless. If you can survive laning phase you will scale better. Take Grasp and Sunfire or Frozen Heart first item with Ninja Tabi and max Q or W.”
Suseri says “Has a Strong early, try to Dodge his Axes. You start beating him with 1-2 Items after your Jungle Item. You can also just run away from him after you get 6 since he cannot slow you in your Ult.”

ak521 says “A decent ban because it is impossible to outplay him alone. He counters your CC with his R, and deals true damage. He also has a lot of health and is hard to take down because he has healing.. kind of makes your team focus him instead of someone else in fights.”
KamiKZ says “This match up is Graves favored as long as you can kite and dodge Olaf´s axes with your E.”

Maintained says “Phase rush is a must in this match up, as it stops Olaf from being able to run over you anytime he takes a look at you. Being able to avoid fighting him is a huge bonus, as Olaf will want to make as big an impact on the early game before he falls off a cliff. You can't stop him from doing whatever he wants to do though so you're going to have to give up some stuff to Olaf. You're a much better champion than he is in teamfights.”

EUWRATS says “Pretty hard match up for Hecarim but can be easier if you take phase rush and try to kite him instead of trying to 1v1 him because you wont be able to. Try to avoid him”

Yamikaze says “Major: This lane can go either way depending on who has a lead. More information found below.”
NixLychee says “You will not win a 1v1 vs. Olaf if he has one braincell, and he can chase you down with his ult and axes. Not a fun matchup, one of my personal favorite bans.”

Tchouvline says “Olaf's early game is REALLY annoying for Fiddlesticks, his R can completely negate all your kit, so consider playing safe against him.”

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

Sovereign Kitten says “Olaf is a strong level 1-2 cheese champion. If he picks up his axe after throwing/hitting you, it will reduce the cooldown by 4.5 seconds. You can NOT (Q) most of his auto damage or slow him in his (R). He will often run Ghost and simply run you down once you get hit by one of his axes, if you are extended against him. He is very tanky and makes utilizing (R) and (Q) relatively useless. I would highly recommend you play a kiting build like PTA, as it requires less from you, and deals with many of the key issues when facing him. Focus on things like movement speed and the ability to kite and not rely so much on your (Q) or (R). ”
THE PASSIONATE GUIDE TO TEEMO by Sovereign Kitten | Teemo Player
Rhoku says “TL;DR - SKILL MATCHUP. DON’T FIGHT HIM BEFORE LEVEL 3. KITE HIM TO HAVE HOPE OF BEATING HIM EARLY. DON’T LET HIM HIT YOU WITH HIS AXES. BE CAREFUL WHEN FIGHTING HIM LEVEL 6. NINJA TABI’S ARE HELPFUL. You do NOT want to fight Olaf early on. Once he hits one of his axes, you are legit fucked as the slow allow him to catch up and land another one. Try to play safe until you get both of your CC abilities. Basically, wait till level 3. At that point, you have the CC to stop him from moving and getting his axes which allows you to kite him properly. And if you can properly kite out an Olaf, there is essentially nothing he can do. Try not to die to Olaf. Remember that Olaf falls off super hard so if he LOSES lane, his team essentially has no toplaner. Try to dodge his axes. In all honesty, if you are patient you will win this lane. Try to be careful as he spikes extra hard in level 6. You no longer will be able to kite him out. If you are going to fight him level 6, the key is to A) NOT GET HIT BY HIS AXE and B)USE YOUR E BEFORE HE USES HIS ULTIMATE SO YOU GET SOME USE OUT OF IT. Try to kill him when he is low as Olaf is great at healing in crucial moments. His DPS is also highest when he is low. In terms of runes, I’d recommend Bone Plating and Conqueror. Phase rush is somewhat helpful for when you want to disengage but Conqueror helps you just out fight him.”
PH45 says “Don't let him get too many E's on to you as it deals true damage. He has quite a good sustain with his W so careful for that. He also gets more attackspeed the lower his HP gets so be careful of that.”
Drake6401 says “Goes well against your burst trade style because his Q and ult are perfect tools for chasing. Try to get a lead before level 6 and chose your fights wisely after. If you use your full combo and then he ults after you, there's not much you can do to stop him. Make sure to avoid using your dash too much post six so you have some kite power.”

Anoying bro5 says “Do not fight him until lvl 3. You want to parry his lightning attack which is pretty fast which they usually use after one aa. If you land parry you win the trade. When Olaf ults, your riposte does not slow or lower attack speed so it is best to run if you cant kill him quickly. You out scale so if you are struggling, sit back and farm under tower.”

MarkFromSingedMains says “His Q is great for chasing you down, his W allows him to regen after chasing you down, and his E negates the stat buff you get from your R. Add onto this his R cancelling your W and E and you've found yourself in a horrendous lane. Bramble is recommended here.”
Mark's Guide to Singed: SEASON 11 GO TANK by MarkFromSingedMains | Singed Player
Rhoku says “SUPER hard matchup. He outdamages you, he avoids your ultimate, he is better than you for 90% of the game and if you get hit by 1 axe, you are done for. You basically want to sit back and not walk up at all. BELIEVE me when I tell you that if he hits you with 1 axe, you WILL die. You better be able to disengage with a backwards E once he is running at you because otherwise, you are done. Get Tabis, Bramble Vest, Seeker's Armguard, Rylais and Lyandries. You are stronger lategame when you both have items but just don't let him get a kill on you. A snowballed Olaf will destroy EVERYTHING.”
[NEW ITEMS 10.24] Iron Stands Eternal! Ω Rhoku’s Morde Gu by Rhoku | Mordekaiser Player
I Am Goliath says “Just survive the early game against Olaf and you outscale him. If you get hit by an axe simply just E away because he will chain axe chase you down, be very careful early game in this matchup and wait until you have W maxxed and some items, also it's very important to keep in mind YOU CANNOT pull him in with your ultimate while he is in his ultimate since he cannot be disabled so it's a good idea to save your ultimate until after he uses his. As long as he doesn't snowball early you win mid and late game.”

ryzetrox says “Meh. Pretty free. You shouldnt ever die to him. Dodge axes and youre good”
Bombabo says “The key to beating Olaf is to survive early. He outpokes you, outdamages you, and outsustains you. He is also very capable of tower diving you due to his ult, which prevents you from being able to E or R him. However, he falls off pretty hard around Mid-Game, and you should have no problem taking care of him unless he's fed. Ask for ganks”
