Tips Against Smolder in Adc Lane Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors

Kociokwik says “He is weak in early game but you have to dodge his "w" otherwise he will slow you and run away. Also you have better push so you can take plates and fight on bounce back. Karthus is stronger untill smolder's 225 stacks and 4/5 items.”

Latte9969 says “Smolder is hard to judge because he's incredibly weak at the moment but assuming you're reading when he's strong; Smolder's early game is completely non-existent so you can look to all-in him whenever you can, try to ping your support to trade or engage and just bully the little dragon so he can't scale for free.. get it..? "scale" because he's a dragon..”

Rank_1_Idiot says “Smolder will outscale you and does true damage, so you cannot stall for lategame.”

afr0rk says “Don't let him breathe. Keep him under his turret and don't let him stack easily. The longer you keep him from reaching his true damage burn, the better. Consider buying early boots to dodge his W.”
Amberdragon says “Smolder relies a lot on hit abilities to do damage and he usually seeks to poke a lot with them -- on one hand that is good for Sivir, because you can spellshield abilities. But the issue is that Smolder has his Q up way more often than you have your E, and he has higher range, so he can bully you a bit. Besides, his wave clear is probably on par with yours until mid game or so. Late game you should be fast enough to run away or run him down, but he will have more burst damage and poke. So all in all: matchup is more favorable for Smolder, but your early game is on more equal footing especially depending on support matchup. You also scale well, play to your advantages (teamfights and helping your team get a good engage off). Ideally use your E to block his W and R, especially early game, since they deal more damage.”

Bobalegre says “He has a weak early game, be careful with his W poke and try to trade and all in to get any advantage possible, later in the game when he has more stacks try to stay out of his range.”

Amberdragon says “Matchup is in your favor early game, so make sure you pressure him and don't let him stack his Q easily. If the game drags on until he gets 225 stacks you can't do anything to stop him on your own. See matchup section for more details.”
Amberdragon says “Matchup is in his favor thanks to his poke and late game. If the game drags on until he gets 225 stacks you can't do anything to stop him on your own. See matchup section for more details.”
Amberdragon says “Smolder wants to spend his early game poking his enemies and farming for stacks. As long as you dodge his W and stay out of his range, it should be relatively easy to avoid his poke. You also have more damage early game, which helps you get lane prio and pressure him. Your win condition is closing the game early and not letting him stack til 225, if he does, he becomes trouble. But even late game, your high range and combo damage are still a threat to him unless he is not going for a squishy build.”

wungus says “Smolder is short range, but that's his only weakness. He will poke you to gain stacks of his passive, his W has a massive hitbox, and his E counters your engage entirely. He infinitely scales and becomes unstoppable at around 20 minutes. Also a very good ban candidate.”
