“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).
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
“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”
“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. ”
“Olaf kind of just runs at you and kills you and there's not much you can do about it. Unplayable lane after lvl 6 and you should dodge.”
“Strong damage and high sustain, wait for ganks and don't trade when he's low. ”
