“Poppy has a surprising amount of damage for a tank because of her Q so try your best to dodge her Q's, She's also pretty hard to actually punish early game so we have to play the scaling game against her, try your best to push in early and get an early Cull, you can also use your E when she throws her passive at you to shield the damage. VERY IMPORTANT against poppy that you DO NOT play near the walls or cliffs in top lane, if you give her a stun in the wall you will lose the trade very hard. Don't stress too much about getting fed early in this lane as you do outscale just try your best to CS and survive and punish her when you can, once you get level 9 and have your W maxed you can look for longer trades, but remember her Q has a % HP scaling so that will always hurt. Her W also blocks your E so keep in that in mind, sometimes you can bait it out by getting her to use it for the movement speed then go for the E, another thing to keep in mind is if you use your E right as she knocks you away with her R it will actually buffer it and you won't go flying really far away and can just kill her (I'll show a video example of this down below) Other then that don't play near walls and don't get chunked by her passive and just wait for items to outscale her in the splitpush.”
“Try to dodge her Q or parry it if you don't plan on going in on a fight. DO NOT Q if she uses her W (gold circle). You can bait her knock back by hugging a wall, and riposte to stun. You can also Q+W her W to stun if you are outside her circle. This is a tough matchup as once she has bramble/ tabis it is not worth fighting until you finish your mythic.”
“She counters your E and R.
Try to counter her R with your W.
Stack W when his shield runs out.
In team fights, she can negate your R or throw you out of the fight.”
“Level 1 you beat her with your passive, level 2 also , level 3 it becomes tricky due to her W, i would suggest you play safer until you get bork, after that you beat her!”
“She can make you useless in fights as she can just ult you away so you won't get to use your ult to full potential. Her W will also stop your E but you can negate her E with your W timed right. In lane should't be too much of an issue but teamfights are a different case.”
“If she doesn't have her passive shield, then you should be able to trade pretty well. Try to bait out her W because it can stop your dash. ”
“Try to all in her at 1 lvl with your E. Don't get close to walls or other structures cuz she can easy stun you up with her E. Be careful with your Q because her W deny your jump. After getting Botrk + Trinity/Divine Sunderer you should win 1 vs 1 vs her/ Remember that your E blocks her empowered autoattack from passive.”
“Honestly, it's not that bad of a matchup contrary to popular belief. In theory, Poppy should hard counter Quinn because Poppy can use her W (the forcefield ability) to cancel your vault, which will then knock you down, slow you, and also ground you. However, We are W MAX QUINN BABY!!!!!! We have speed.
Poppy gains 40% MS while under her W active, but we get 40% MS from our harriers too! :O So, essentially, NEVER use vault on Poppy unless her W is down.
Next, avoid being near walls so that Poppy can't stun you against them. Play the middle of the lane whenever you can.
Also, since we are so fast, if Poppy ever wants to chase us, she MUST use her W during the chase because she legit will not catch up to us without her W movespeed.
Now, Poppy uses W and is fast, you use your harrier proc from Q or passive and you match her move speed, and all you have to do is wait for her W active to expire, and now you have 2 choices: Either you INSANTLY vault Poppy. if she used her dash ability earlier to get onto you. Or, if poppy has her dash still up, you wait for her to use her dash to catch up to you, then you IMMEDIATELY vault after since her W is down. By doing this, poppy has no gap closers after you retaliate with vault, and you can now kite her quite a bit.
Fun fact: if you E poppy when she presses Q, poppy will use her Q hammer smash backwards lol. Also, you can cancel poppy R with a well timed vault (you must have smurf timing).
Do not stand in her Q after she presses it because it has a delay, and will deal extra damage.
Finally, Poppy's passive shoots out a buckler on the ground, just make sure to step on it if you are close enough because she can't pick it up if you do :)
At 3 items, you will be able to shred Poppy when you build your lord doms.
If Poppy uses R, instantly vault it to cancel it.”
“Avoid being in front Poppy if you want to trade. Also avoid walls to prevent Heroic Charge(E) from stunning you. Try to save fling for her Keeper's Verdict(R) to prevent use. (Outscaling Edge: Even) (Sustained 1v1 Trades: Even) (Recommended Items: Demonic Embrace, Rylai's Scepter) (Mega Adhesive prevent casting of her Heroic Charge) (Fling overrides her Heroic Charge) (Fling cancels her channeling on Keeper's Verdict)”
“While she may be registered as a tank she still outputs heavy amounts of damage, be sure not to stand close to walls, never let her q double proc on you, dont let her flash e you into a wall if your under half health, and make sure to land your q when she tries to trade with her passive +grasp so you can trade before she picks up the shield.
