“Skarners is all about his capture points around the map that he acquires which grants him a very large amount of attack speed and movement speed while near them to get around the map faster, especially if he has predator. You'll want to try to capture some of those points every now an again especially at the start of the game, which will grant you a little bit of gold and remove it from his passive for 15 seconds until he recaptures them they can give away his location if you're constantly keeping tabs on them switching. You don't wanna be around him once he hits level 6 or be shoved and extended in your lanes as he has too much lockdown / a stun you can blind.”
“Avoid standing near his tower if the wave is pushed in. He can drag you under it with his ultimate and stun you there for an easy kill.”
“Who? Skarner struggles to catch up with you and if he R's you in a teamfight it only takes the pressure off the backline.”
“Rare top pick. Generally very weak, the most he can do is drag you under the turret, but you still can fight back using your summons. Other than that, he loses very badly.”
“Another uncommon matchup, but skarner is a really strong (and definitely underplayed) champion in both the top lane, and jungle. He can pull you under tower with his ult basically granting him a free kill, he is also fairly safe with his movement speed and CC, ask your jungler for help and kill him that way.”
“You win every trade with him. Only problem is when you get too cocky and try to dive. He'll pull you so deep into tower that your mom would be jealous.”
“I have not seen skarner top in the last 1000 games so I can't tell you much about this matchup”
“Kled is very good against tanks for his high damage and because he will always have the free passive because they can't kill him without the mount.”
“When Skarner is the jungler, he can easily shut down a significant lead you may have via his ult. His ganks are also very potent if he hits his E.
When Skarner is the top laner, they'll probably play very safe. Even if they're down to 5 CS per minute, they'll outscale you hilariously and becomes much more useful than you after laning phase. I've actually never played Tahm Kench against Skarner, but every time the enemy top laner chooses Tahm Kench, I pick Skarner in return. I haven't lost a game as Skarner against Tahm Kench top lane yet.”
“Very weak 1v1 but great gank setup, be carefull to not get flash ult ignited under his tower because you may die to that.
Overall he should be easy to kill 1v1 but i would recommend going triforce before sanguine because its safer as he has very good gank setup.”
