“Rumble is a hard matchup early if the person is good, Try to E into him right as his flamethrower is running out so he can't use that to trade back, second item adaptive helm is also reccomended in this matchup, level 9+ this matchup gets a lot easier and you can take extended fights against him, try to hide in minion wave to dodge his E's and you can also make him push the wave if you stay in your minion wave when he Q's you. Start doran's shield and build early spectres cowl if you're struggling a lot in this matchup, because you should outscale him later.”
“He scales very well and dont let you make farm. Hard Matchup but not impossible.”
“Has high dmg early on with his q and e. Look to poke him with q and setup a freeze if possible. If you see him waste his shield "w" look for trades when ur full combo is up. Go D shield in this lane so you don't get poked out early.”
“He can just force you out of lane with his flamespitter and harpoons. Get some magic resist and after 6 you can just auto minions twice, then Q onto rumble and auto + W for a lot of burst damage. Merc treads are a solid in this matchup.”
“While it's not hard to beat him in a fight, Rumble is hard to dominate in lane because of how safe he can farm from a distance and under tower. The only way to really deprive him of gold is killing him and he can counter this by playing extremely passively. Get some diving help from your jungle to make him miss waves that you crash.”
“He's going to shove you into tower a lot early game but he isn't very much of a threat. Get an Abyssal Mask to be able to sustain in lane and push the waves back to him. Rumble is extremely vulnerable to ganks so if you can, freezing is a good idea. You can easily just ult him when your jungle is near and he'll either have to flash or likely die.”
“TL;DR - SKILL MATCHUP IN YOUR FAVOR. DON’T EAT FREE POKE. LAND QS. EASIER AFTER LEVEL 3. RUSH SPECTRE’S COWL IF HE IS WINNING. PHASE RUSH/CONQUEROR BOTH GOOD.
Low Elo Rumble players are horrendously bad. So it should be an easy lane. You want to make sure that you don’t just stand in front of him and eat his full flamethrower combo. Don’t stand in his ultimate but try to land all of your Qs. Rumble will try to poke you down and then all in you to kill you when you are low enough. Keep yourself healthy with Doran’s shield, second wind and properly timed Qs. He is pretty immobile so if you are able to pull him, he is essentially dead unless he is under turret after you pop your ghost. Both Conqueror and Phase Rush work well into this lane.
A Rumble lane should be easy after Level 3 but if you are struggling, a Spectre’s Cowl will help you win the lane. Don’t even go for Merc Boots unless his team has good AP+CC. ”
“Take Conqueror or Hail of Blades. You kinda just E him off cooldown and hit him. His poke can get annoying but you can go Botrk and heal off his poke. Hope your team doesn't get 4 man ulted in teamfights.”
“Avoid Rumbles (E) spam with jukes and minion block and back off a bit when he rushes into your minions with his (Q) flamethrower. Buying some Magic Resistance will go a long way for you. You want to predict where he is going to throw down his ultimate and simply, don't run through it as it will deal a hefty amount of damage to you. You can walk around it if he angled it to not completely block you off, or you can flash it if you wish to avoid it completely. If he is overheated you can play more aggressively as his abilities will be down for a short duration, but he also gains increased basic attack damage, so make sure you don't let him on top of you.”
“It can be difficult if you take a bad early trade. They usually take E first so try and farm within your wave. Look to poke with Q and once the wave is shoving you can run him down at level 3 once he uses W. He must use a lot of mana early to shove u in so try and capitalize on this and track his mana costs.”
