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

LambWolf says “Olaf is dangerous if you ain't near walls. You can kite him over walls with your q. And try to dodge his axes also. You shred him if he can't heal from you.”

Citric says “Olaf is another great early invader and early duelist. He might full clear his own jungle if you are lucky. He likes to level 1 late invade or even start at the buff you are not doing. Must get an early ward at jungle entrance in this match up. Can also bring ignite and challenging smite to duel him 1v1.”
✔️Citric's Jungle Shyvana Guide by Citric | Shyvana Player
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.”

Pullks says “If he gets fed you will have a hard time dealing with him. You can generally escape him with blue smite and phase rush. ”

gankyourgrandma says “Focus on out scaling him, keep in mind that his ult removes CC and makes him immune to CC.”

lightrocket2 says “If he's ahead you cannot escape. Try going PTA to beat him in 1v1 or phase rush to run away but in most situations, you lose. This is my permaban choice. Dodge if you value your LP.”

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.”

Insightful says “Olaf is a natural counter to tank junglers due to the nature of his kit, he has a very fast clear, true damage and an ulti that makes him invulnerable to any form of crowd control for a few seconds, this is a good ban if you want to play amumu”

LordGrox says “Can ignore your damage and CC with his R and just run you down. Consider getting at least an executioners.”

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). ”

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.”

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.”

MrDomian says “He can avoid your R with his R. You can hit him, but don't go into long trades. Enter when he is low on health and you have all the skills.”
quinn adc says “Seems like an impossible matchup post 6, but I classify it as medium if you run phase rush. First, make sure to side step Olaf's Qs in lane with your harrier procs. If he lands a Q on you and tries running you down, Auto E Auto combo him to proc phase rush and run away. This keystone provides move speed along with 75% slow resistance, so if Olaf is chasing you down and lands Qs on you, phase rush counters the slow from his axes. The matchup pre 6 is heavily quinn favoured, so side step his axes and then play the matchup as any other melee matchup, which is be aggressive when olaf misses Q. He has no gap closers without it, so you can hard trade him. If you are getting in an intense 1v1 with him, ignite kinda earlier to apply griev wounds to mitigate his W heal and conq heal, and also to proc nimbus cloak from your runes to grant you extra MS. Now, post 6 Olaf DO NOT DO NOT DO NOT vault olaf while his R is active. If you are extremely low and have no choice, then that is the only time you should vault him when his R is active. The reason you don't is becasue R grants him slow immunity, and so your E will not slow NOR knock olaf back, and that is a critical part about Quinn's vault ability. How to win post 6 olaf is, when he activates R, instantly proc phase rush by either auto auto auto, OR Auto - Q - Auto. By procing PR, you have slow resistance and insane MS to make his Qs unable to slow you, and enough move speed to out run olaf in his R ability. Side step the axes if you can, and focus on trying to just run away by procing harriers from passive or q when you can. NOW, when his 6 second R ends, IMMEDIATELY use vault on olaf, and then re-engage on him because he will have no gap closer without his ult :) I rush bork here, so you should also save bork active for after his R expires to apply a slow on him. Practice makes perfect for this matchup, but post 6 is actually not bad with phase rush! Just save that E boys until his R expires always.”

SaltCat says “Level 1 you win with passive, level 2 also, level 3 you lose , play passive and get grevious wounds, after level 6 you can easily kill him”
RTO says “Avoid trading until level 3. His level 1 is disgusting. Very easy to gank for you jungler, so call for a gank. Even at level 6, do not look for all in without chunking him down. ”
