“This champion is really anoying if you play against a onetrick. You can't kill him since he heals all your poke in stealth and he outroams you early levels.”
“Pyke is not fun to play against, he can heal a lot of your damage with his passive, he can just farm kills from you with his ult, and if he stuns you your basically going to die everytime.”
“He doesn't have much kill potential on you if you don't mess up your spellshield. You can kill him rather easily while his E is on cooldown. He will most likely just leave you alone and roam botlane over and over again, keep a Control Ward in the river at all times. Buy an early Seeker's Armguard if necessary.”
“Care for his level 1 cheese when he has hail of blades. He will most likely start E and remove 50+% hp from you lvl 1. This lane probably has the least action thanks to pyke wanting to perma roam 24/7, but you for sure have the upperhand in lane and should take advantage of it by going for trades. Never E into a pyke so you can't be vurneble to his E/Q CC. Just E in on Q dagger and W then E out again.”
“Like most AD assassins Pyke struggles into Nunu. Get Deadman's early and force him to either be unable to 1v1 you or buy last whisper which makes him worse against the rest of your team.”
“I don't see how you would lose. Dodge E and Q. Can Zhonya's ult. Can burst him easily after you dodge his E and Q.
Runes: Elec-Resolve or Prec.
Starting Items: Long Sword or D. Shield/Sword or Dark Seal”
“If you fuck up it's cbt time, just pool his hook, it's a lot less worse getting stunned than hooked, he's pretty unpokable early but if he all ins then you beat him post 6”
“Pyke only beats Yone levels 1 and 2, unless he gets fed early. After level 3, he can't hit his stun and you outdamage him. If he becomes too fed from misplays, buy an early cloth armor and scale. Take the Standard page and Armor.”
“Pyke Mid is surprisingly strong in solo queue right now. You should win against a Pyke pre-6, especially if you get a few ganks, but his level 6 powerspike is immense. Since you are so squishy, it makes you an easy target for his Ultimate.”
“Unlike most AD assassins, Pyke relies pretty heavily on CC to get kills, which is perfect for you if you use your E wisely. However, he can take advantage of your E's cooldown if he baits it out of you, so make sure you don't waste it and try to dodge his abilities when possible. Like other assassins, make sure you ping missing when he disappears. His roams can be quite deadly due to his invisibility and CC. Even following him can be difficult since he gets extra movement speed with his W. Overall, he poses more of a threat to your allies than to you, so play around him accordingly.”
