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

Polarshift says “Your kit counters his passive which is what he relies on the most as a champion. Olaf gets more attack speed the lower he gets; but so do you. Start using your E when he's getting on the lower side of his HP bar (e.g. 40% HP). The biggest issue of this matchup is him poking you from far with his Q.”

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.”

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.”

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.”

Veralion says “Olaf is one of the undisputed kings of the jungle right now. His Q effortlessly keeps you under control and lets him dictate the fight. Even if you have a sizeable health advantage, he can simply kite you until your E mark and W expire and then slap you silly. However, if he has been keeping himself at 50-60% life for clear speed and tries to fight you straight up, you can one shot him with PtA Ignite and bone plating. This requires him to commit to the fight and essentially misplay, though. A lot of Olafs are used to automatically winning and are meatheads, so this is more likely than you'd think. If he gets fed, avoid and play for late. He can't get much done in the later stages of the game. ”

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.”

Stratogos says “Nothing special to fear about his abilities but damn that early game DMG is scary.You should avoid fighting with him ”

Doubtfull says “Olaf wins this match up pre-six. You can win after six if you haven't fallen behind, but you need to knock him up before he gets his ult off. This is a VERY difficult match up in high Elo, but probably something you won't see/won't have as much trouble with the farther down the ladder you are.”

Kayn Mains says “Terrible matchup for Kayn early game. Avoid him as much as you can and only look for counterganks. During mid game it becomes possible to beat Olaf in a duel if he is behind, otherwise continue to avoid him. It is best to go Rhaast into this matchup. After getting Red Smite together with Black Cleaver you have a solid chance at beating him. Make sure to use your Umbral Trespass (R) during Olaf's ultimate to wait out most of it's duration and deny him from lifestealing off you.”

EUWRATS says “Olaf is one of the strongest junglers in the current patch which makes super strong against heca due to his perma Q slow and insane healing from items like goredrinker, recommend banning”

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

xPetu says “Recommended: Standard Runes & Teleport Tips: He beats basically every all-in, so basically you should never E in. Passive shield his Q poke. Use W when he W's.”
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). ”

ForgottenProject says “This is guy is a cheese pick. His Early-Game is stupidly strong but he falls off. [1]Do not fight him before level 3 he will out damage you hard. [2]Try to Predict and parry his E(his Dunk). [3]Farm up and you should beat him at lv6. [4]Try to dodge his Axe the best you can as it gives him a window to All-in or stack his Conqueror. [5]Rush Executioner's After your Tiamat, you don't want him to kill thanks to his absurd lifesteal.”
[11.8] Rank #1 Fiora NA | Challenger Fiora Main Guide - Upda by ForgottenProject | Fiora 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. STEELCAPS’S ARE MANDATORY. You do NOT want to fight Olaf early on. Once he hits one of his axes, you are legit fucked as the slow allows 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 with JUST your CC. You HAVE to dodge his Axes AND have Ghost. 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. Steelcaps are great as usual.”
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.”

ak521 says “By going Juggernaut, you're unlikely to be having much trouble facing threats you'd face in the AD build. Don't get caught out, though.”

Psychopathic Top says “Worse matchup than yi. Olaf top is seen a lot more as well. This champion can run you down on level 1, and would snowball too much of a gold difference for you to matter even post Sunderer. Level 6, ragnarok makes him immune to wither, so again (like yi), Nasus is playing with three abilities. Even if you miss every cs in the first wave, do not walk up for cs, as he will run you down with axe spam. In lane, look to survive and prevent getting turret dove. Do not ask for jungle help as Olaf simply 1 v 2s. Get bramblevest early to stop his insane healing, and try to scale up without dying. The later it gets, the better odds of you winning the game.”

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. If he misses his Q and throws it far away from himself then you can try to fight him as he misses a lot of his damage without his axe spam. After 6 he can avoid your stun but he wont have his extra resistances from his ult either.”
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.”

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 get armor and health items and max Q or W.”
