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

SkandalloTV says “He has higher base damage and healing in early game. Try to farm from far. If you ever go in, use W instantly to reduce his burst damage. Irelia's ultimate is great for him. I usually ban him if ever someone in my team hovers another champion with great ultimate, like Malphite, Soraka, Bard, etc.”
otaliz says “Since he's a melee champion, he'll only win trades if he gets melee with you, so don't let him jump on you with his E. Sylas is only an extreme threat because of his ultimate, which can copy Twisted Fate's ultimate and have the same presence on the map and follow your roaming. Try to push the wave as much as possible from level 6 to make him decide to either follow the roaming, or farm the wave.”
Foxirion says “Sylas’s high mobility and burst damage can be a major threat to Swain, as he can dodge Swain’s abilities and quickly eliminate him.”
michaliis says “Go Dorans Blade. Skill Match up. Outplay him with Q3 dont trade with him he will destroy you. Poke him with Q3 or E W and then all in him.”

Laimaudeja says “[I would use the Summon Aery page in this lane, and start Doran's Ring.] Most of Sylas' damage is in his knock up, so avoiding it is key. To play around it effectively, I recommend surrounding yourself with minions, as it makes it more difficult for him to hit his knock up on you, even if being within melee range of Sylas isn't ideal. Though, once you bully a Sylas to low enough health, you should start maintaining your distance instead as his lunge heals him based on his missing health.”

Yannou-Ari says “Flash - TP - Flat HP. Sylas is a tricky matchup depending on the player you're facing. if they're good, they will make your laning phase a nightmare. Your Q is just too slow, he can just use his E to dodge it and gap-close you at the same time and land his chain. I would actually recommend to play super safe in this lane because if you both go 0-0-0, it is to your advantage. If he doesn't go for zhonyas, he's a pretty easy target to one shot from afar in fights. If the sylas player is bad tho, this match up turns to easy since you will just be able to one shot him with your combo.”
Fienny says “Even, may seem hard but you have to execute well and can win even without ignite”

awawa says “Once again, your W counters his entire existence. But you need to be a bit more careful in this matchup, this guy still does damage if you waste fear or let yourself get poked a lot. Bully him lvls 1-3, but don't get stunned by him or you will get more damage than you've dealt. Have ignite up when fighting him. Get morellos and banshees if he's fed. ”

Snarik says “Really any character that can lock you down and burst you 100 to 0 will be a hard match-up to win, but With good help from your jungler and minimal inting it's still winnable. my personal perma ban since when he's good you can't play the game as long as he's on the map”

BigManYam says “Cancer would personally perma ban into this match up.”

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

huncho1v9 says “Easy matchup. Lots of outplay potential with your E and W. Sylas might look for a level 3 invade, but it’s very easy for you to outplay. Sylas is a jungler that relies on snowballing heavily, if he doesn’t get a successful early gank off, you automatically have a level lead + cs lead against him and can run him down.”
Foxirion says “Sylas can be a moderate threat to Viego. His ability to steal Viego’s ultimate and his healing from his W can make him a tough opponent”
[14.8] Viego, The Ruined King [Full Guide] by Foxirion | Viego Player
huncho1v9 says “- Easy/Annoying matchup. This matchup can be super easy, or annoying if he gets ahead. Sylas can’t match your clear at all so he’s gonna look for early ganks. If he can’t get any early ganks off, you automatically have a big lead over him. If your laners don’t respect his early ganks this matchup can actually be hard if he gets kills, because you have to respect his early game damage/burst. Sylas has a level 3 cross map invade window, but it’s rare for sylas to go for invade rather than gank. Conq is favoured in this matchup.”

lanefox says “Very strong duels and burst. Stealing the enemy ult means he can pull out some unexpected solutions if you're not paying attention to the chat feed. Most of the time, you have to whiff some abilities in order to win. Unlikely to be an even fight.”

youenn says “Very squishie , he d'ont have a good first clear jgl just invade him early game .”
Mignognium says “Enfaite il y a deux choses qui rende la chose ambiguë. Déjà avec les nouveaux items de mages, Sylas a beaucoup moins de PV donc c'est vraiment mieux pour nous, mais il a aussi gagné en dégâts de façon ridiculement élevé ... Donc je pense qu'il est pas vraiment un danger car facilement anticipable mais attention au burst. Et aussi maintenant il clear pour de vrai donc regarder bien son passing de Jgl.”

X3mHills says “Consider buying Banshee's Veil, Force of Nature, Zhonya's Hourglass, and Mercury's Treads to protect against him. Focus on farming and counter-ganking, and avoid early fights with him.”
