Tips Against Sylas in Middle Lane Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors

Lynter says “(veja o tópico Matchups para mais informações de como enfrentar Sylas).”
[S11] Lynter's Katarina Guide (PT-BR) by Lynter | Katarina Player
Avucado says “This is by far Pyke's worst matchup and I highly recommend perma banning this champ even though I personally don't. If you see Sylas picked and you locked in Pyke, dodge. He can take your ult in team fights and wipe your whole team easier than you can. Along with this, he can beat you in lane easily. Don't try to trade early because he almost always starts E first so you can't hit him with hook or E. He will have corrupting pots so he will be full with 1 or 2 more remaining afterwards. Look for hooks into autos, don't Hook->E because he will dash out. Lvl 6 you will get completely destroyed as he can take your ult. He can dash to avoid your ult, heal out of it or just out damage you. Look to roam and ask for ganks if you're shoved in. In the end, he will outscale you and wipe your own team with your ult. ”

Drewmatth Taliyah says “MELEE = PUSH EARLY (LEVELS 1-2) - CARE FOR GANKS! (SPAM Q'S TILL 50-60% MANA). Corrupting because of his annoying sustain. You might supplement it with a Doran's Ring i you feel his burst is high and that he can play well. Can be a rather difficult matchup if you get camped due to his CC spell and how easy he can reach you. Use your WE to push him away from you when needed and if you miss it trying to engage on him or to kill him back off because he can turn on you and you won't have much to protect yourself. Usually he cannot 100-0 you but some MR will work. On Roaming be careful because he can steal your ult (PING IT if so!!). Also beware of his sustain and heals - it can outplay you sometimes. Ignite helps greatly in this matchup but if you feel you are going to get outplayed get something defensive such as heal/barrier.”

bobqinxdd says “Powerful aftershock abuser, dodging his Q and E and keep your distance from his W to win trades”

crabbix says “If you can dodge his second e, you're likely to win. Stun him when he pauses to throw the chains”
Yeager says “You have to watch out for his early game damage with corrupting potion. He has a ton of burst and sustain which makes it very hard for Yone to win early trades. Stay behind minions when his E is up so he can't grab you with E2. Getting early healing reduction will make the trades easier. Basically just farm out the early game, look for trades when he uses abilities to farm with. You win easily after you get berserkers and first mythic item. ”

Ambitieux says “Sylas due to his recent nerfs of armor. But buffs of MR allow Ahri to actually do better against him then most. One big thing to mention is that his dash into chain can be canceled mid air of chain due to charm. Its just like Leblanc so time it well. Other than that he is very easy harassable and you can get him into turret quite fast and auto him out of lane. Watch out for his lvl 6 against you. If he takes ur ult and he uses it even once. Don't try to out play him just ult away and try again later.”

Quinncidence says “Really easy matchup for Yorick. Get Executioners! Note that if Sylas takes Yorick R, the cats does way less dmg since the cats scales on AD and not AP”

iZianni says “He goes merc treads and presses W. I've often won this match up due to Sylas players being some of the worst OTPs, with the champion being extremely bad. But the reality is Sylas should win this match up because of his all in potential. You do outrange, but he can easily outmaneuver you if given the opportunity. ”
Zianni's Challenger Lux Guide by iZianni | Lux Player
Yeager says “Pre-6 he can only get to you if he hits the second part of E. If you can dodge that, he can't activate aftershock so he will lose the trades if you keep your distance. He is melee, so you can use your range advantage to poke him and get control of the lane early. Don't get baited when you see him at low hp and rush in. People always underestimate the healing from his W. ”

Tips Against Sylas in Top Lane Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors

Sovereign Kitten says “This matchup is dependant on the main rune Sylas chooses. Aftershock or Electrocute dictates how you should be fighting him. You need to by all means use your minions to body block his (E) dash into his (E) chain CC, especially if he is running Aftershock. If he misses this ability, make sure to run him down. He is squishy as hell if he misses. If he does hit you, however, there is not much you can do, because you let him land the ability and you're going to be taking a shit ton of damage. Throw your (R) on his (R) to track where he places them or buy Oracle Lens to remove the mushrooms he placed. ”

BoilTheOil says “Go Conqueror and build Executioners. His first few levels are a bit weak, so you can look to deny him early cs. Slow push and crash wave 3 and then try to freeze the wave after it bounces back to you. After he gets lost chapter the lane is pretty hard because he will W auto and E out and you can't do much about it. ”

I Am Goliath says “Start Doran's Blade in this matchup, This matchup is fairly easy for urgot since hitting E should be easy for you with him being meele, plus a lot of sylas players will try to E in on you and then you can just E them and kill him, Executioners calling is recommended in this matchup since he heals a ton with W and they usually run conqueror, I just go for trades whenever my E is up in this matchup and it's smooth sailing, if you miss E then just back off until it's back up. and try your best to dodge his Q's as well. If he steals your ultimate try your best to either dodge it or kill him first, if you guys both ult at the same time, whoever gets the other person low enough first for the pull wins.”

Drake6401 says “The only real threat Sylas holds is his disgustingly high healing at low HP. Executioner's Calling is required. While two of his abilities are skillshots, it's much less likely to be the one who looks to engage so he will be aiming from point blank. You out burst him but he will look to chase you with his E. Side step the chains if you can't dash. When going for the kill, saving your W for the killing shot is a good plan to hopefully burst him down before he can get a huge heal off.”

Anoying bro5 says “You win if you dodge his Q and land your Q pokes. Parry his stun which is predictable as he dashes right before stunning. If he steals your ult, hes trolling. You will hit the vitals faster and you know how they work. Get executioners as your second item to prevent his healing from his W and if he does complete your ult.”

MrDomian says “Don't let him heal you. You can try to fight after level 6. Wait for your R and counter its R your stuns.”
quinn adc says “First, Sylas Q is 775 range, while your auto range is 525, so he has the range advantage with his Q poke. Be mindful of this because his Q detonates after at the end, which does additional damage, so try not to be at the end of his shackles when he uses this ability. In this lane, SAVE YOUR VAULT ALWAYS! Let Sylas use his Chain E on you, and when he dashes towards you, use vault to RETALIATE and push you back. When you vault from his chain pull, you can indefinitely kite him since his gap closer is gone. The matchup is pretty easy so long as you don't get hit by his Qs in lane, and you vault to retaliate against his engage in lane. You beat Sylas pretty hard too because he relies on using his R against champs, but him stealing your R means that both of you don't have a combat ultimate. If sylas steals your R, just inform your team that he has it and might plan a roam! Play aggro in lane :)”

Raen says “Annyoing with those heals, Early Sheen and Executioner's vs Sylas. Remember about his W healing increased by 50% against targets below 40% health so be careful diving him or trying to kill when you got low hp.”

Phrxshn says “This match-up will be dependent if you can dodge his skillshots or not. Dodge his Chain Lash(Q), Kingslayer(W), Abscond/Abduct(E), and Hijack(R). All of his skills are linear. Take note that his Kingslayer(W) will heal him if not avoided. (Sustained 1v1 Trades: Even) (Outscaling Edge: Sylas) (Recommended Items: Morello's, Rylai's Scepter) (Fling overrides his Abscond/Abduct) (Fling overrides Kingslayer) (Mega Adhesive prevent casting on Abscond/Abduct and King Slayer) ”
Veng Shotz says “Rush an executioners if you arent going Ign. you generally outtrade him so long as you dont let him e+e2 stun you. Even if he starts maxing w your executioners will kill his sustain, keep poking him with Q and make sure to space yourself properly, he should never be able to w for free without GW on him. level 6 he wins if he can w you more than twice, since he'll be using your ult. like morde, watch out for his build path, build MR if he rushes armor. Dont be greedy. ”
