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

Squ1dM0n says “Sylas's Scaling is so good. he'll just try to gank as many times as possible so just try to deny kills. try to end as soon as possible before sylas out scales you”

Carbear51 says “This man is simply built different, and while he cant get nearly as much out of your ult as you can, you absolute chad, he is still annoying to have to fight or gank.”

Kocykek says “Sylas may have the damage in this meta but against you he has a problem. You block his dashes with Steadfast Presence and easily outdamage him. If you get Divine fast you easily win.”
checca says “One of my favorite matchups in mid lane to play against is Sylas versus Zac. I've played against some of the best players in North America and they have picked this matchup, which is completely reliant on skill. As of 12.23, I think Zac is slightly better because of the high % healing on blobs post-level 6. Sylas can cancel your E with his E, but this won't typically be a problem. Furthermore, Sylas can do nothing with your R as he can't cast any abilities while it is active. Post-level 11, you should win against Sylas.”

Kindredgarten says “Jungle Sylas is terrible after nerfs, free win just invade him. Only thing to worry about is him taking your ultimate but he will probably not know how to use it as well as you.”

Moonkie says “Sylas is a tough matchup as he enjoys the aggressive playstyle of Maokai early by winning early 1v1, 2v2, and 3v3. Him being able to steal your ultimate is rough but by playing around your saplings and getting mercs you can play around him. (This is my ban currently)”

Davecraft16 says “His clear is pretty bad so he will try to gank a lot. While he clears he will be low on health, perma invade and countergank him. If he stays behind he will become useless”

Heca diffs says “[12.23] This matchup isn't unplayable, but he is VERY good with your ult. You clear faster than him if your team doesnt int to him you'll outfarm and do fine”
PykEugeo says “Sylas 285 Matches 59,3% nella Corsia 50,2% nella Partita”

Xerath gaming says “Annoying matchup, but his ult is fun. If he ults you its 7 more seconds ALONE with you, then you ult him making it 14 seconds alone with him which makes it an easy matchup and very fun. Get ignite or griveous wounds”

darkezmond says “A bad matchup, his healing makes it almost impossible to trade with him, wait for a mistake on his part or pressure from your jungle, be wary of his R and Q”

kaiba77 says “Broken character but skill matchup. If he gets ahead you lose, if you get ahead you win (sometimes, see Faker vs Jensen outplay). Whoever lands their E wins the trade. At 6 it will become harder. Rush Morellonomicon vs him.”

leipamesari951 says “Dont give him ur ult. He can make ur ult actually do damage bcs of his AP scaling ult.”

ardizzle says “My personal favorite match up. You take exhaust with Press the Attack and you will dominate this lane. Be aware of his level 3 spike but don't be afraid to let him come in. With exhaust and PoT, it is an easy level 3 kill. ”

EL ZUDO says “sylas in this patch might be generally bad as a champ but trust me he can fuck u up w max gives him the upper hand on trades his poke is incredible with ah and everfrost and mid to l8 he becomes an unkillable tank/burst mage i ban him all the time but u do u”

Fantasygamer02 says “Very similar to Akali, but Sylas can sometimes be a little scary in the early lane. Sylas can out-duel Ivern pre-6 and if you are not careful he can easily make you recall really early or even play for a kill. Just play as safe as possible until level 6 and he likely will not be able to do much, as him getting Daisy is significantly worse than you getting Daisy (Ivern shield on Daisy is incredibly strong and hard to deal with for the vast majority of melee matchups).”

Edwwardo says “Can't really do much if you keep your distance but if you misplay he can really punish you for it. Be careful and don't let him being low bait you into your usual gap close into ult since he can lock you down and turn the fight around quickly.If you keep this in mind he shouldn't be too much of a problem.”
AnxialSociety says “Everfrost. His e/w should be a free bubble, hard harass. Never give an e angle without bubble plan. His gank punish is brutal, as is his w heal. He will E onto your return if you bubble in front of him Watch out for merc treads (they know what they're doing) Watch out if they go cleanse (they can kill you) Pocket pick: Illaoi”

blitza says “skill matchup, start w and aa+w him lvl 1 if he walks up, stand in minions so he cant hit his e, dont get baited by his w heal”

Deru says “Very hard matchup, he steals your ult and becomes a monster so it's a skill matchup before 6 with conq but you also have room to outroam him (if he lets you).”
