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

Polarshift says “This fella will take short trades and heal it all back up when hes low. You wont be able to kill him till you are scaled up. Always dodge his second E, because that is most of his damage.”

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.”

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. ”

Fuzzmonkey says “Poke him as much as possible during early and never let him get to W range since he'll be able to heal off of you. ”

crabbix says “If you can dodge his second e, you're likely to win. Stun him when he pauses to throw the chains”
LunarVortex says “Running exhaust is an option here to shut him down throughout the game. Play around his E cooldown and try to spellshield it. He gets amazing value out of stealing your ult. Get an early Oblivion Orb.”

DarDarThePenguin says “Sylas can beat you if you're not wary of his cooldowns or healing, but for the most part can be beaten with Ignite. If he gets early armor don't fight him. Take the Standard page and MR.”

PRoli03 says “In high elos he is considered a counter to you but unless the sylas is really good it's not hard to play. (Electrocute)”
lkycch says “He will steal your ultimate and give his team a free revive, meaning that your speciality is no longer... well, special. Your jungler can gank him early and shut him down, so that even if he does steal your ult, he won't have the damage himself to be useful. Remember: Summoner's Rift is a 5V5, not a 1v1. You don't have to stay in lane and suffer a losing matchup!”
ffluko says “Roba tu ulti, y mucho robo de vida gracias a su W, Morello y ve a por ello.”

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

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.”
GoliathGames' Ultimate Guide to Urgot (2M+ Mastery Points) by I Am Goliath | Urgot Player
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. ”

Rhoku says “TL;DR - EASY LANE. DON’T EAT TOO MUCH POKE. KEYSTONE DOESN’T MATTER. DSHIELD IS A GOOD START BUT DBLADE WORKS IF YOU ARE CONFIDENT ABOUT BEING ABLE TO DODGE HIS POKE. Sylas is not a difficult matchup for Darius at all. He might have an easier time in midlane but not up here in top. Sylas is somewhat difficult to land your first Q on due to his shield dash and him being able to pull himself to you. But other than that he is very free to fight against. Just grab a Dshield as it should be enough on its own to negate his poke. And poking you is all he can do as if he ever gets in the range of your W or E, he is just dead. Freeze him off of farm and kill him if he ever steps up. If he ever becomes an issue, get executioner’s calling as it helps a lot against his healing. Unless the Sylas is smurfing vs you, you should be able to beat his face in.”
MarkFromSingedMains says “Your W cancels his E first cast, but other than that there's little to say regarding this match up other than "Dodge his Q and E".”

iZeal says “Get Executioner's Calling and punish him for his shitty laning phase. Remember that he only has 1 untargeted dash with which he can evade your W while his W is too short by itself and also puts him into your Q3 range.”

Fan22 says “Since sylas its insane in Mid-late game and can heal like crazy, he an be a big threat even when behind, but things get worse, since he can steal your R and also Get fre HP like us. Honestly him and Sett are some of the better bans you have. If you end up agaisnt him either Mid or top, i reccomend going thornmail or morellonomicon and getting magic resistance, your W and R can shutdown sylas easily.”
The Monster of the Void [11.2] Cho'Gath Top by Fan22 | Cho'Gath Player
Raen says “Annyoing with those CCs and heals, rush early 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) ”

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.”

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

colingogo says “Steals your ult, lots of mobility/sustain, and usually buys merc treads. Be careful when fighting him.”
[S11] Colingogo's Challenger Evelynn Guide by colingogo | Evelynn Player
PsiGuard says “This champ kinda sucks as a jungler right now, so he's pretty easy to fight. You can outfarm and outduel him early. If you're paying attention, you can block his attempt to steal your R and put his R on cooldown. If you're worried about him getting strong mid-game, buy Executioner's Calling to mitigate his W healing.”
The Nocturnomicon by PsiGuard | Nocturne Player
Doubtfull says “Sylas is very weak in the early game. Take advantage of his bad clear and look to invade if you can. Once he gets redsmite and a jungle item he can win 1v1's. ”
[S11] Doubtfull's Challenger Rek'sai Guide by Doubtfull | Rek'Sai Player
ak521 says “ He'll probably try to rush squishies, and his damage isn't "low", but if he's ahead he'll do a TON of damage. He's good at duels and outplaying, he can dodge your Q with his dashes, and he can steal your ultimate. It sounds like a nightmare and it kind of is, just don't let him get ahead- power farm if necessary.”
Riealone says “Whether mid or jungle, your ultimate is too strong for stealing. Buy Executioner's Calling. Early he is weak and you should use, but later be careful and get MR, because he can easily kill you. Sylas jungle is just so out of meta right know, that's why he isn't really a threat”
RedNBlue says “Early game you will win but later in the game his healing from his e will be so annoying to you in duels you will lose.”

NixLychee says “You will out duel him, and your ult is a bad one for him to steal (unless it's out of desparation). Pretty easy matchup. If he gets ahead somehow, you can just get Greivous Wounds, and he'll die quickly. Invade him, his clear is slow and unhealthy.”

Hidon1 says “The champ does not work in the jungle that well anymore. This is one of the match ups where you can out pace him and be 2-3 levels lead. You have a way faster jungle clear and you can become a strong tank in the later parts of the game. ”

Doubtfull says “Sylas isn't too strong of a jungler right now, and he can't threaten you early game making this a fairly decent match up. Beware though, he can steal your ult which is very useful.”

LambWolf says “Sylas has weak first clear so just try to invade him pre 6.”
