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

LambWolf says “This little woman is straight up nightmare. She doesn't let you jump because of her w and u can't go near walls or she stuns you. ”

UDYSOF_OCE says “Poppy destroys Jarvan in fights. She cancels your E-Q instantly and runs you down permanently. While also being able to stun you on your R walls and disengage with her R.”

Riealone says “Poppy can have some burst damage in early/early midgame, so don't underestimate her. And be aware of her W, it can stop your E dash (not running part, so you can just press it without jumping). It can be just annoying, but nothing more ”
KamiKZ says “This match up is Poppy favored. There is not much you can do against Poppy´s W. Tip: Don´t stay besides walls since poppy can push you into them and stun you. ”

BlackFalcon2005 says “Be careful where you put the pillar as she can use it for her advantage, apart from that, it should be and even fight.”

Pusi Puu says “No counterplay besides EoN. Wait for her W to run about before you engage or make sure your EoN blocks it, otherwise she cc locks you to death.”

Arfreezy says “Very annoying matchup since she can rush armor tank items and really counters you in skirmishes by denying dashes. In this matchup I would recommend getting Blue Smite to kite since you can't rely on E or R for movement and building a scaling or anti tank build to deal with Poppy in skirmishes. Play efficiently and play to scale as you would versus other tanks. Playing opposite side of the map early is best.”
LordGrox says “Incredibly rare in the jungle, but will ruin your day as her W blocks your tunnels. Can block you and CC you until you are dead. Try knocking up her engage to deny further burst.”

Suseri says “She has better trades, try to avoid walls to not get stunned, after some items you beat her. After 6 dodge her R if possible.”

RichMrFork says “Lots of CC. Tell your laners to watch out for a cheese gank at level 2, she is surprisingly strong at that. Don't E blindly here, if you're grounded as Ekko your champ is almost useless. Poppy will always bring utility to her team, remember to look at your team and make sure you're not overloaded with dashes (Camille,Ekko,Yasuo). Remember to play away from walls as she can lock you down well and does a surprising amount of damage with Divine Sunderer.”

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

I Am Goliath says “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.”

Anoying bro5 says “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.”

MrDomian says “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.”
SaltCat says “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!”
PH45 says “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.”
RTO says “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. ”

Raen says “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.”

quinn adc says “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.”

Phrxshn says “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)”
Veng Shotz says “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. ”

Tips Against Poppy in Bottom Lane Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors

Vapora Dark says “Broken bullshit. Poppy has so much free damage and stats along with a strong CC bruiser kit it's disgusting. Her passive allows her to poke and take easy trades, her Q does stupid damage if you sit in both ticks of it. Her W means she can pick all the fights, either running away or running in (whilst also making her tankier). Her E is a super strong wall stun that's CD is way to low for it's power, so avoid walls as if it was a vayne or graves. Her ult is god tier disengage if charged, or a point blank malph ult for engage if insta popped. Abuse the fact she has no range unless her passive is up, try and contest her buckler and attack the enemy ADC as she has no direct support, like Leona.”

HoesBeforeBros69 says “Warcrime Poppy is a powerful and dangerous foe exspecially when played full lethality. Her spells deal tons of dmg and with her status as one of the most feared mercenaries of the modern age she won‘t flinch no matter how strong her opponent is. There is however a small gap between her q and e animation that you can probably use. Not sure tho, im only Bronze 2 but as a strong, independant male/ female/ diverse/ etc. you can probably use said window to run for your life. Don‘t mess with that morbid midget for she will rip everything out of your body when she‘s ahead.”

QueerJunk says “Can stop your dash. Is generally to tanky to 1shot. Contains Hard CC to destroy you or just knock you out of the fight with her ult, when you ult.”
LupinTheCat says “Poppy isn't that much of a threat, she's hard to kill but apart from that she doesn't do much, she will disrupt your frontline, so if you see her preping her ult silence her if possible”

Eccentricks says “As a Poppy support player, she is still good in the bot lane and still as hammery as ever. As Twitch, I have never fought one, but she can be dangerous, as I have have fought twitchs as her, and they don't handle well against her ult and E.”

NinJoshPanda says “Since every one of your Auto Attacks lets you dash with your passive, Poppy can effectively stop you from using your AA or Q with her "Steadfast Presence" ability.”
