Tips Against Twisted Fate in Middle Lane Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors
Edex_StarsUpYourASol says “If its adc TF, you're in trouble for a bit. If he's ap TF, you can trade whenever he red/ blue cards the wave. This will be a skill based matchup, but usually in your favor. Try to take advantage of your early capability to roam as TF ult will become troublesome if the enemy sidelanes are fed.”
L9 zangetsu says “very easy to kill he is just gonna want to roam and leave you alone try to punish him for his roams by taking towerplates and make sure your team knows when his ult is up so they dont get caught out ”
Uberizm says “He shouldnt be able to use his W without you insta harrassing him if he doesnt pick a gold card. If he roams a ton, just try to follow instantly despite the lane state so that you can E him and follow his ult”
Zoose says “Go for hard trades and all ins when you can. His only real threat comes from his yellow stun card followed up by a jungle gank. Try to freeze waves just outside your tower to avoid this. At 6 he will look to push waves and teleport ult, so keep waves pushed, place wards behind river walls and ping teammates when he's 6. You can cancel his ult with your W. Look to match him roams with your ultimate. ”
spicy ricecaker says “You can play stupid in this matchup and still win. With TF's w cooldown nerf, he is now not a champ after he uses his w. You can trade whenever if you have your passive or windwall up. After 6 if he roams make sure to hard shove his lane to punish him.”
basrty1p says “His Yellow card can stun lock you, you should be careful when you want to kite to him or kill him.
His R can make him roam into the other lane, so if you can't gank like he does, just push your lane and get tower plates instead, this'll deny his exp and gold, making him buy his core item slower.”
Esrucnl says “Easy to burst, no mobility. You can dodge his Q+W and technically his E aswell.
Tip: Ward and ping properly against Twisted Fate, since he will just try to soak waves on mid and roam other lanes.”
Azurio says “Bit of a boring matchup. You can trade him by dashing and smoke his gold card to auto Q auto him. If he goes minion dematerializer, stopwatch and corrupt, he will afk farm and roam at level 6. Just do the same, shove waves and hit tower when he's gone.”
Vrowx says “Akali's worst matchup, lane is not a problem, you just sit and farm, just like in most ranged matchups. However, he hard counters you in teamfights and forces you to play them differently than usual, he is the only champion that can do that to you.”
donidaking says “His range is similar to your but you do more dmg so POKE POKE POKE.
Dodge his Q and be aware of his cards.
If you waste pool and you get ganked you die.
So only pool his gold card if you think he has potential to kill you.
he will roam first thing level 6 so let your team know when he s 6.”
Grogroda says “TF is a mix between Ahri and Sylas, he has the tools to stop your engage very easily (gold card) and he also has an ultimate that gives him a great map presence, he gets places faster than you, but not with as much CC and protection.”
Ahri Simplord says “Point and click stun is pretty annoying but his wave clear is mediocre at best and he has low damage, if you have no idea where enemy jungler is,all inning him is a bad idea,he's probably going to outroam you no matter what so if you're looking to follow or take plates,whatever you decide to do decide it instantly to get the most out of it.”
Xalt says “Shove Twisted Fate under his tower and control him, he will be forced to either ult another lane and miss 2 waves or stay mid and make his ult useless early. Try to all in him before he gets Kindlegem as it's hard to kill with his gold card and stacked health.”
Bundif says “The TF lane is an easy one if we're in low ELO. Using your R to dodge his gold card should be enough but if you THINK you're going to be perma ganked by his Sejuani girlfriend, then MAYBE you could consider going Cleanse. Maybe.
DaffeLaffe says “Shove Twisted Fate under his tower and control him, he will be forced to either ult another lane and miss 2 waves or stay mid and make his ult useless early. Try to all in him before he gets Kindlegem as it's hard to kill with his gold card and stacked health.”
Juon says “TF is okay matchup, he will mostly try to farm with his cards. If you see him pull them out just back-off or use W if thrown at you to negate incoming damage. I run first strike into this since he isn't too hostile, just care for his mid-game roams with ult.”
V1kt0r555 says “[Summoner Spell: Teleport or Cleanse]
[Starting Item: Doran's Ring]
[Recommended Mythic Item: Luden's Tempest]
[Try not to let him push under your turret]
[Trade him when his W is down]
[Warn your team when he is lvl 6]
[Your ult can cancel his ult]”
ThePieBeam says “Lol TF. Your stun is better than his (if you hit), your slow is better, and your damage is better. He's got a bit of poke with his Q but it barely does any damage and makes him stand still to cast. Just play aggro and watch out for jg, then melt him when the completely immobile champ gets hit by your stun.”
TcKatfish says “[Press The Attack Runes / Long Sword and Refillable Pots start.] TAKE TP IN THIS MATCHUP! It is common to take cleanse into this matchup as well however I feel tp is better for the overall game rather than cleanse for lane. This matchup is pretty simple in theory you just go in whenever he has Gold Card down. Go in on repeat whenever its down or grapple in behind before he starts charging it to be able to chase him down once the stun is down. Use tp to follow his Ultimate and this lane is extremely free.”
lonestar1870 says “You can easily solokill him level 6, or at least threaten it.
Don't let him get prio once he has ult, you need to make sure he can't roam to side lanes. You can get prio easily in this lane, but make sure you don't die to ganks.
Plan your resets ahead of time, Tempo is very important vs TF in making sure he can't impact the map.
Any rune works in this MU since it's fairly easy, I usually go Aery/PR for TWT/Cpot but Elec is still good.
You can go ignite in this lane but TP/Cleanse are generally better.
Corrupting pot is great to match his.”
Desperate Nasus says “Vs Twisted Fate, take armor runes instead of Magic resist. Thats because Twisted fate only uses auto attacks on lane. There is only 1 ability which does Magic damage and that is his Q but it is easy to dodge. Try to get a lead against him so he wont be able to roam without getting punished.”
KlumsBabe says “If its a good twisted fate that knows how to keep distance, you can only kill him post 6. Dodge his everfrost and gold card if possible. Try to shove lane every time he roams so he looses on the most possible amount of cs.”
ShokLoL says “Against TF take cleanse and E max. Whenever he uses his W on the wave look to E forward aggressively into him, try ward around mid so you don't get ganked while you do this but worst case you can probably disengage with cleanse. Wit's End is optional depending on if they have other AP on the team.”
Miscake says “Três palavras: Golden card, W.
Você ganha a maioria das trocas na lane desde que ele não tenha Determinação nas runas secundárias, se for o caso ignore ele e jogue pelo scaling rezando pra que seu time não tome play com a ult dele.
A maioria dos jogadores de TF não sabem o que estão fazendo, pessoalmente eu considero isso uma free lane.”
WayOfTheTempesst says “This matchup is Twisted Fate favored to a degree. Trade or all-in him when he uses his W. Do your best to dodge his Qs. He will just look to push and roam, so ping him mia when he does. You can cleanse his Gold Card with proper timing on your E.”
WayOfTheTempesst says “Very one sided matchup. Basically what TF wants to do is push the wave in and look to ulti whenever he can. Due to Yasuos insane wave pushing, he is a super good champ into TF. Not only can you push him into tower all game and deny his roams but you can windwall his stun card which is his only way to survive matchups mid. I actually wait for him to use his card then go on him lvl 1 with E since he has no way of fighting me back except with autos. Just watch out with going near him when your windwall is down because if he catches you with a stun while his jungler is there, you could potentially die.”
Katawina52 says “1v1 this lane is not a problem at all. You can look for him to load up his W and he will probably blue card for mana on minion or red for shove. If u walk up a bit forward and backward while he loads up his card you can make him waste it on a minion and then you just go in and auto win the trade (I use this a lot, because most tf's dont want to waste mana and they only want the gold card if you walk up too far). The reason I give this a medium is, because his gank set up is really annoying 1 stun while enemy jungle is near and you're dead so be careful for that before you go in. Mercs vs TF is really good and I even go Unflinching 2nd if they have even more CC. TF is also the only laner where you could go cleanse, but never go mercs if you go cleanse.”
Drewmatth Taliyah says “Corrupting due to his push power. (Doran+2 Pots if you really think you will insta kill him level 3 with a full combo - doable but still..)
Play with Cleanse if you think his stun will help their jungler get to you, always ping after level 6 for Twisted Fate that he's ganking. Always expect a random teleport and if possible, find the solutions and be first to gank
botlane. You can win against Twisted Fate on lane easily if he comes too close. Minion Dematerializer is mandatory. Get all the push power you can and try to outpush. Always beware after you gank first that the enemy midlaner will follow, always ping when they are missing from the lane AND get
a vision ward in the single bush that is in the river, that ward will ensure extra safety versus them. Try to clear their vision wards also all the time.
Also think that when you gank bot
they might respond with a roam top, the reverse also works so definetly warn your team with pings.”
eiensiei says “I'll poke him with E-AA and I'll be somewhat aggressive since I out-trade him. He will look to gank side lanes once he gets level 6, so I'll warn my teammates when he's close to it. Usually unkillable after RoA, but Cleanse makes Lux unkillable too.”
AP WormMaW Mid says “Twisted fate is usually pretty easy to deal with, unless you are facing exceptional player. Why I rate him like this is, that if you face good player, he will be able to juke most of your skillshots and even set-up situations for kills with his yellow card or even ult. Another coinflip here is, that if he roams and gets some kills on other lanes, you might be in a huge problems, because he basically snowballs their entire team. Except for that he is quite abusable in lane, if you just wait out his card pick and harass him as much as you want, when he doesn't have it, because if he gets yellow card while his jungler is around, you might be in a huge problem. That might as well tell you whether or not his jungler is nearby, because most of TFs are using either way red card for push or blue card for mana sustain, but really rarely they want to pick yellow card in order to harass you, because you should be able to simply outrun that.”
Avucado says “Point and click CC is not good for Pyke. Start Q and look to hook him or just q into HoB. You can trade with him easily before he gets items because he doesn't do too much damage. He can match roams easily and hard outscales you. Ask for ganks if he shoves you in because he has no mobility. He is very good at enabling ganks though so make sure you're alone or your jungler is near before you go in. Mercs or QSS are very good into TF almost always.”
ISterbenI says “The only thing he's better than you on is roaming. He can push the wave almost as fast as you and then roam while you're stuck in lane. Try to stop him pushing out the lane with the use of your Q, W and R and make him stay in that freaking lane.”
Yeager says “Take cleanse. He should never be able to 1v1 you when you have some items so he will just be looking to shove in the wave and roam. If he uses his W on the minion wave, walk up to him and hit him with your Q+E. After 6 you want to shove him in so he can't roam. Ward his side of the map so you know where he's going, and SPAM PING your teammates to back off.”
Yeager says “Take cleanse so you don't die to yellow card + jungle gank. Your window to trade is when he use his W on the minion wave. After level 6, keep shoving in the wave to stop him from roaming. Vision control is important against a tf. With good wards you can let your entire team know where he's going.”
Polarshift says “Has good waveclear and very good map pressure. His stun is on a way lower cooldown, your only advantage is that your damage is higher. Sadly, rooting him won't stop his ultimate but will stop Teleport if he has it. You can run cleanse in this matchup since he has amazing tools to setup a gank.”
Callmebee says “TF only should become a problem late game so this is one of the easiest matchups against Lux in my opinion. You can easily stay out of his stun range, poke with E+AA and dodge his cards. Take Barrier and poke poke poke!”
LunarVortex says “His kit is very straight forward and spellshielding his gold card in clutch situations should not be a problem. However, be aware that his W has a much lower cooldown than your E. He will try to bully you whenever your E is down. Try to keep the wave pushed and ward the places he usually ults from. Be aware that his ult has a casttime of 1.5 seconds and your Q has a very slow travel time, so you need to be very quick if you want to cancel his ult with Q.”
Yeager says “Have cleanse for his gold card and mercury treads. Your job is to keep him shoved into his turret so he can't roam and win the other lanes. Since you will be constantly shoving him in after level 6, it's important that you have good vision control so you don't die to ganks while pressuring mid. If you're in a situation where you can't push post-6, put a ward in the middle of the lane and in the enemy jungle so you can see where he's headed and spam ping your team to back off.
You outscale him super hard, so even if he somehow wins the other lanes, just play the scaling game. ”
Urpog says “Skill matchup, he shoves about the same amount as you but has superior poke and range, he'll play for his team so you either need to generate enough pressure in lane so he's unable to roam, if it's comparing all ins vs each other Urgot comes vastly on top so you should always be looking to force things, trading flash for flash and pinging your jungle to come pay a visit is probably the most viable method.”
iZianni says “We win this match up, but Twisted Fate doesn't really care. He just presses R after Merc Treads/RoA and kills our side lanes.
Look to have an early game impact and pressure jungle match up or you'll lose to the rotations and scaling.
You still do massive damage in team fights though, so if they don't have enough damage you'll just win through that.”
ShokLoL says “Zoe is very good against TF but he will look to roam or jungle gank you. If he has a strong ganking jungler I'd recommend taking spellbook TP and swapping to cleanse at 6. If you aren't scared of being ganked you can take electrocute and ignite.”
Kords says “TF can be annoying in lane with his stun card, this leads to ganks, however, you can also trade back with your own stun and a few W procs. He can waveclear once he levels up more. Therefore you can roam early on and not get punished for it. Post 6, you can be followed, BUT, you can throw a stun to where he is landing (should he land visible to you) and normally he dies from this. Peel your backline in fights vs TF as he can almost oneshot your ADC and you too to be honest.”
TheoRut says “Don't fight him when he has yellow card, Q + E him whenever he walks too close to you or whenever he ults to cancel it. if he ults too far away from your E range you can use teleport to match his roams.
Electrocute is suggested.”
ShokLoL says “Syndra wins pretty hard vs Twisted Fate but it's hard to kill him since he normally rushes merc treads and he has quite a lot of gank setup. I'd recommend comet TP or phase rush TP and playing to maximize mana and keep the wave pushed in so he can't roam. Be careful of the enemy jungler.”
ShokLoL says “Take electrocute ignite and you can often pick up easy kills on TF. Doran's ring or corrupting potion is personal preference here. Make sure to get mercury treads for his stun at some point in the game.”
Lynter says “Runa Recomendada: Conquistador.
Twisted Fate puxará a lane e tentará acertar a carta vermelha nos minions que estiverem perto de você, por isso, fique afastado e tente usar seu Q o máximo possível para tirar vida dele. Caso ele acerte a carta amarela (stun) em você, pule imediatamente e use o combo EW+AA, e espere o stun acabar para agressivar depois com QE+AA. O roaming do Twisted Fate é superior ao da Katarina devido a possibilidade de se teletransportar a um local longe, por isso, abuse do fato de que ele não tem uma quarta habilidade como a Katarina e caso ele esteja na lane, mantenha agressividade para tirar vida dele o máximo que puder para que assim ele não realize roaming. Caso consiga seguir ele, tente matar o máximo possível de inimigos, não precisa ser exatamente ele na luta. Sempre que puxar lane, dê roaming para que assim você possa ser mais efetivo que ele, sem perder farm. Em teamfights, fique atento a carta amarela para poder engajar, caso ele a utilize, fique agressivo contra ele. O potencial de perigo de Twisted Fate é de igual para igual visto que se sobrepõe em roaming devido Teleport e sua ultimate, podendo garantir vantagem contra o seu time, sem perder a rota. Sua carta amarela possui um tempo de stun muito longo, o que pode ser um problema se usado em você nos momentos de luta em equipe.”
Dr Eggmund says “Twisted Fate can be a weak laner so be sure to let him know who's boss in the laning phase. When he pulls out the gold card his jungler should be near by and both are looking to kill you. Let your team know when Twisted Fate is level 6 because he will look to roam with his stun card up and make a play.”
Ambitieux says “So in this matchup, you need to be pushing TF out while also trying to get poke on him. He is a slippery snake but almost all his trades is from auto attacks. This makes his attack pattern predictable were you can look for an easy charm. Or even just auto him with walking up with w should add easy electrocute damage. I only ask you made need to run cleanse in this lane due to the nonstop jungler support he may obtain through his automatic CC. Watch for any obvious jungle ganks. Keep him nonstop pushed in so he cant look for any ultimate's at lvl 6. And most important if it looks like he might ult you can push him into turret and if he walks away, start prep walking towards a lane.”
iZianni says “You win this match up in mid, unfortunately you can't stop him from killing your teammates.
The only thing you can do is try to keep wave priority with skill spamming.
Mana management is very important for this match up.
Avoid getting all inned by gold card + jungle gank.”
kindo says “Stack tenacity + mercs and you can train TF down at almost any point in the game. The ONLY thing he can do is waveclear and roam or setup ganks for his jungler. He never has solo kill pressure. He'll sit back and red card the wave and Q - hard pressure him if he ever pulls a card aside from gold if you can. Biggest thing to watchout for is jungle ganks - even with his stun being only .5s -> 1s at ranks 1-5 with 50% tenacity. He'll still max Q first for waveclear, if he doesn't then he won't even have that. At the worst it becomes a farm lane and try to follow his roams. ”
Coldsong says “Twisted Fate has no disengage other than his gold card and has no mobility. Also, you can catch up super quickly when he ults. Watch out for his blue card as it deals a ton of damage, and if he gold cards he may be receiving a gank so be careful!”
resetwice says “Be careful if his yellow card is up because his W is a target ability so you'll be stunned easy and get some burst damage with his Q and electrocute rune. Remember that his R helps his roams, so remember to bully him in lane if your other laners are low HP. BEST RUNES TO GO: ELECTROCUTE”
Kessi says “If he goes AD this matchup is probably medium as it is more lane pressure but its still pretty easy, his early game is nothing too special in a 1v1 only issue is his gank setup.
You can maybe do longer trades since it's not like he has an insane damage output in a couple of seconds.”
Sylvan Lore says “Twisted Fate is a relatively even matchup with Orianna. You can win trades early if you dodge his abilities and hit yours so just see where your comfort is with fighting him. If he ever walks up while shuffling cards, back up and respect the possibility of a gold card and a gank about to come in. At level 6 he makes the game a nightmare for your sidelines. Its very important if he is mid that you do everything you can to get him low. Often i will even take bad trades just to make sure that he doesn't have the effective hp he needs to roam and Ult my side lanes. Take cleanse so that gold cards early, mid and late won't mean instant death and the matchup should go well.
Recommend: Cleanse and Dmg Build”
TheDisconnectEUW says “FOR MIDLANE
Laning is no problem. It's the roaming which is so very hard for Zilean. Zilean NEEDS a team to be able to play the game. Being able to take soloplates/farm while TF is gone does nothing for ZIlean, that is why this matchup is bad.”
Impossible2Gank says “Depending on how he's played it can be annoying to lane against. You can fight him well if you box properly but it's better to just place them around and in his paths for bot just as you would a Galio to give some time for your bot to finish any fights or to potentially catch him off guard for a kill.”
Katasandra says “ Dodge his Q. It is really telegraphed, should never get hit by it unless you get stunned.
 When he uses W (picking a card), walk away from him.
 Can look for trades once his W is down.
 Ping his level 6, only follow his ult with TP if you have it up.”
richardlized says “Not much to this matchup, just don’t trade when he has gold card up. S11 itemization meant that he cannot build tanky anymore which limits his defensive options against you greatly. His ultimate is very hard to deal with and you want to deal with it by slow pushing the waves to force him to give up CS and XP.
xMetix says “He's not much of a threat in laning but his gold card make him pretty safe and his ultimate will reveal you in teamfights so you can't depend on grass. He has no mobility so you can easily set up ganks with root, ask your jungler to play around mid. After 6 you always win 1v1 but he will look for roams or play with his jungler.”
Nanelol says “Play carefully before level 6 and after reaching level 6 start hard shoving all the time and dont give him time to roam. You will get good power increase when you get ranged attack + ult. Put him in a situation that he will lose gold and experience from his minions if he flies away by using his ultimate.
nZk01 says “(Mid) lacks damage and cant trade with you ever, very immobile aswell but most TF's get boots very early and know how to play around with gold cards so try to destroy him pre first back, would recommend ignite/cleanse.”
tozosi says “Annoying poke matchup. It's difficult to get on top of him due to his gold card which stuns you. Though, he is squishy and very one-shottable if he doesn't have his pick-a-card ability up. As well, his Ult will reveal you if you're in your ult, so keep that in mind.”
TheDuskWalker says “Any Summs. Phase Rush or Electrocute.
Play extremely aggressive since he has no real way of punishing you. Pool his gold card once he threw it at you to negate most of his pressure. If you constantly pressure him he will have to sacrifice exp and cs in order to roam.”
Sanctuar says “Usually tends to push out lanes for easy roams. Once you have your Protobelt, push him in so he can't roam and if you see him move forward while picking a card, he most certainly wants to set up the enemy jungler for a gank.”
fanchessfan says “Basically the same as Oriana. Trade extended fights and take cleanse for his gold card. Dodge his q poke with your q. Your E interrupts his ultimate so it most likely will be an easy win for you. You don't have to take double MR runes as he does hybrid damage so you can just take one. ”
Vispectra says “TF is an even lane. He will smack you with autos all the damn time though. Still though he is fairly squishy and immobile. Early on if you engage with an R and he stuns you , you'll still have enough time to E slow him and land a W Q or both.”
cookanarities says “Stack tenacity + mercs and you can train TF down at almost any point in the game. The ONLY thing he can do is waveclear and roam or setup ganks for his jungler. He never has solo kill pressure. He'll sit back and red card the wave and Q - hard pressure him if he ever pulls a card aside from gold if you can. Biggest thing to watchout for is jungle ganks - even with his stun being only .5s -> 1s at ranks 1-5 with 50% tenacity. He'll still max Q first for waveclear, if he doesn't then he won't even have that. At the worst it becomes a farm lane and try to follow his roams.”
TheWerefloof says “More Point n Click CC, ain't that funny? Bait out his yellow card, preferably on a minion. Q him then E, rinse and repeat. He is still more of a problem due to his ability to react to your roams, but long as you don't make it too obvious you should come out ahead.”
DarDarThePenguin says “Twisted Fate doesn't have kill pressure on Yone in lane, but can set up for unavoidable jungle ganks easily. His roams are insanely strong and he will always get somewhere first. Take Teleport to try to match his roams, but understand you won't always be able to counter him. Try to kill him in lane. Take Fleet and MR.”
TheMockingSnowman says “A very favorable matchup but be careful of his yellow stun card. His ultimate is his primary roaming tool so let your teammates know once he's missing and either follow his roam or roam somewhere else. ”
Boomblight says “? Just dodge his stun card with e. If he goes ap (they almost always do) his q will do some damage but you destroy him/ If he goes ad he can literally never damage you/cc you or do anything if you use e at the start of trade and q out after.”
Oxydation says “Twisted Fate has a really good gank setup with his yellow card, so you always have to know where the Enemy jungle is right now. Level 6 you can just all in him after he use W.
He is nothing without a jungler or without his W.”
Joseph Evanss says “level 1 is annoying because he will level e to auto you a bunch but once your level 3 just go in on him a bunch, if he presses gold card take your e back and try and cleanse the stun, even if you don't you should be fine. If he uses w on the wave or something else then just go on him and kill him. After you get Berserkers + Zeal its super easy to kill him. Spam ping botlane and top lane if he is mia. Go Second Wind, Revitalize + D Blade”
ahspaghetti says “if he uses his w, blue/red card for farm, you can stay up, if he tries to gold card you, just back up and look to engage. you might want to go merc s because you will be extremely vulnerable to ganks when he just gold cards you for ~2 seconds of hard cc.”
7daysko says “If he's any good, don't expect any kill pressure. Post-6 however, he is extremely dangerous for your team, as he can help other lanes snowball with his ulti. Consider taking Teleport to counter-gank.”
The Jhin Cena says “Take the Conqueror Laning Runes with Second Wind and Revitalize, or Unflinching if they have more CC than just Twisted Fate. Twisted Fate overall is an extremely easy lane for Yone, and it is very difficult to die to him unless you are ganked. Simply keep the wave on your side of the lane, and once Twisted Fate uses one of his color cards, go in for an extended trade with E > Stacked Q > Auto Attack W > Auto Attack > Q. There will be literally nothing he can do to you during your trades, so be sure to abuse these trades heavily. Even if Twisted Fate doesn't use one of his color cards, you can still go in for a quick trade, and right before he throws his yellow card at you, snap back with your E and you will be safe. Twisted Fate's main threat is not to you, but the other lanes. Make sure to deep ward your lane, and if you see Twisted Fate running toward the jungle/river, spam ping the respective lane since Twisted Fate most likely is going to ult and teleport to them. In 90% of instances, you do not want to try and follow him to go assist your team since he can get there much quicker + give vision of you and you will more often than not lose more than you will gain. Rather, exploit these frequent roams from Twisted Fate by pushing in your waves and getting a huge CS lead over him so you can carry the game. However if the enemy team is looking to secure an objective, then I'd suggest trying to assist your team as soon as possible in the imminent fight. ”
GabomanDeLegado says “En el momento en que gaste el posible stun (tarjeta amarilla) debemos entrar con toda, las stats bases de TF no están hechas para resistir el combo completo de Kled. Eso sí, debemos tener cuidado con sus roams, esos nos puede voltear la partida.”
XD001 says “He can never solo you unless you dont dodge a single Q. What you have to worry about is his roaming. Tell your team where TF is at all times so they don't get caught offguard by his roams. Shove in mid wave as hard as you can and hover which lane you think is going to be roamed to. Also, in lane if he uses gold/red/blue card on minions you can go in and burst him in a short trade, possibly killing him or blowing a flash if you have enough AP. Late game play safe in side lanes cause you can get collapsed on easily.
electrocute + sorcery + tp”
Noodles912 says “Save E when he has a gold card, and look to all in him when he is around 80% health. If he roams, shove as many waves as possible. Respect him level 1 and 2. Take PTA for best chance at winning.”
PASS10NE says “Twisted fate is really squishy, but he will kite you. Good TF players will place the wave near their turret, so be wary of enemy ganks. Also ping your laners whenever Twisted Fate hits 6 or is missing, because he can simply use his R to gank or respond to skirmishes.”
Twitch.Tv-LimitBreaker88 says “Free lane for you, stay max range and don't let him goldcard you. The only thing you have to watch out for is his jungler. Otherwise you want to permapush to prevent him from roaming. If he does, make sure to get a lot of plates and outscale him.”
Aht3ns says “Mundo counters Twisted Fate very hard. Mundo doesn't use mana so Mundo's mana sustain is better than TF's, Mundo's passive counters his gold card, and TF's wave clear isn't that good compared to Mundo's so TF can't get that many roams off.”
InkHeiko says “I'll put there Ryze and Twisted fate since their laning phase are kind of the same for me: They are really easy to beat since they mostly want to farm in the first level, poke you at times and lv 6 roam with their ult. You are naturally stronger than them in early with your range, just watchout for roaming and such. A good matchup for Seraphine is not a matchup where she will always kill the enemy, but a matchup she can just farm. It does not really matter (to a certain degree) that your oponent farm well, the moment you farm as well you will always be stronger than them.”
nZk01 says “(Mid) lacks damage and cant trade with you ever, very immobile aswell but most TF's get boots very early and know how to play around with gold cards so try to destroy him pre first back, would recommend ignite/cleanse.”
Tamatamo says “Just play against TF like the normal way. He brings out yellow card. Run. Blue card. Run a bit. Red Card. Get away from the wave. If you're in a position to all in him try to make him use a card except the yellow card on you. Once he uses it go all in and you should win unless he's fed.”
Hiimkata says “1v1 this lane is not a problem at all. You can look for him to load up his W and he will probably blue card for mana on minion or red for shove. If u walk up a bit forward and backward while he loads up his card you can make him waste it on a minion and then you just go in and auto win the trade (I use this a lot, because most tf's dont want to waste mana and they only want the gold card if you walk up too far). The reason I give this a medium is, because his gank set up is really annoying 1 stun while enemy jungle is near and you're dead so be careful for that before you go in. Mercs vs TF is really good and I even go Unflinching 2nd if they have even more CC. TF is also the only laner where you could go cleanse, but never go mercs if you go cleanse.”
CaptianMike says “Dodge his Q to win the lane. Both of you have global presence, but overall he roams better. Karthus has a much better teamfight overall. Skill match to win lane, but you're way more useful in teamfights.
KataTocDo says “Kill pre -6. Post 6, just ping your team that he has ult.
"Ping mid danger or missing six times and it's not your fault if they die to a roam" - Faker
Runes: Conq-Dom or Elec -Prec.
Starting Items: D Blade, D Shield, Dark Seal”
Yamikaze says “Start E lvl 1. If he tries to push by red carding your caster minions, dash up to his face and chunk him down. Do not be scared of poke as you have your shield and bone plating. With proper vision, you are looking to play as aggressive as possible and try get a kill in laning phase. At 6 you want to shove in his lane when he has ult up, and ward the sides to limit his roaming. You can use windwall to stop his waveclear, unless you have a good all-in opportunity. ”
wildersovereign says “This matchup should not be an issue for you. Don't use your shield on his gold card unless you plan on rooting him back for it, which is a pretty easy task considering his lack of mobility or defensive options. Your Q will interrupt his R if he uses it in front of you. Killing him is very easy if you have E up.”
invalidd says “There are some good TFs that can mess you up but usually you can just walk up to them and trade with them by hooking, the most you're
gonna have to worry about is his auto attack damage early on and that's about it, ping the most you can if you feel like he's going to roam and try to
be there as fast as you can since pyke is really good at counterganking. Easy to setup ganks on.”
TheRealFloyde says “Start Q or E in this one if u go for E u have easy harass in lane and poke lvl 1 he wont probably go for any CS in lane but if he will with your dashes and AA's u can punish him so hard u can even get a free kill if he gets greedy.”
SkellyBirb says “Twisted Fate's gold card is his biggest threat. You will want to spell shield this, because if he hits it then he gets to hit his cards for free that will burst you down pretty hard. However, once you shield the gold card, his cards become fairly easy to dodge.”
KASSAW1N says “Kass vs Tf: ten la vision super controlada y maxea E Y W, la Q no hara tanta falta, tu lvl 6 es fuerte, recuerda pelearle cuando no tenga la seleccion de cartas activada (Es decir, que la haya gastado). (compra hielo eterno para evitar su escape) Por cierto, lleva tp, es un juego de mid quien rote mas gana.
Zenzyx says “You can block his gold card with wind wall making his trades much worse since you can get damage in too. TF doesn't do enough damage to kill you once you have life steal. Yasuo's easiest matchup.”
ezmod66 says “I really cant pin this difficulty. Each tf I face seems to play differently.
There are two playstyle which I generally see.
1.) Pushes like a monkey and can't manage his mana leading you to freezing and destroying him on cs and getting a few kills.
2.) He will early push trying to set up a slow push in his favor. He will stand far back out of your range. and blue card spam to match your push. He will out sustain you mana wise, Push you in and roam to help jungler leaving you stuck under tower with no mana and a big wave to deal with.
Matchup Difficulty: Questionable
Easy to kill him. Focus farming and wave managment”
Tortoise_Maniac says “- He will try to push you in; do the same to him
- He is relatively vulnerable to ganks in lane
- You win jungle 2v2
- Try to keep up with his ultimate at level 6
- You have to be proactive and know where he is all the time as his ult outranges yours by quite a bit
- You can use your E while he gold cards you when you're running away to maximise efficiency”
Big Shawn says “It is quite even due to Twisted Fate's range and the ability to stun you. But if you reach him, he will remember that thanks to your damage. Therefore Twisted Fate is not allowed to do too many mistakes against you. Same goes to you. Watch out for ganks.”
BCota says “This matchup kinda sucks as you cant really kill him unless you perma poke or ask for ganks or try to limit test and all in and it works. Try to stop him from roaming by pushing in wave outscale him”
Niqkl says “Extreme not because the lane is hard but the map presence at level 6 is horrifying for your team. If the TF has good macro, he can get his team a massive lead. If you know he has good macro, consider taking TP to mirror his roams.”
FalleN3 says “This is an easy lane & realistically there should be no problem for you to win it. He is super squishy and won't be able to out-trade you. Once you have Tibbers, he should be an easy kill. TF will want to roam to other lanes with his ulti. If he ults from in front of your vision, try to stun him before the channelling finishes.”
SkellyBirb says “Twisted Fate can deal a surprising amount of damage, but he doesnt have the same burst as you. However, he has hard crowd control on a basic ability that is on an auto attack. He can try to roam for an advantage at level 6.”
vCraze says “Twisted Fate is generally a pretty easy matchup as he does not have much pressure on you. A specific tip against TF when he hits 6 is to ward in the botside alley as that is when he is in range to ult to bot lane. If he is 6 and is moving down make sure you follow him and try to stop his ult if you can. If he gets down there you have to decide whether it is best to push your lane and go for plates or ult for bot to try to help.”
OxiteoMyst says “He cant actually kill you, your shield blocks his entire Q or at least most of it. Just poke him down and all in when he is low. Keep in mind he is actually quite slippery with his yellow card if you're 1v1ing him. he WILL ult to side lanes, you can either preemptively walk to a upcoming fight or tp. (Or you can eat up those yummy turret plates mid) <-- your team will be pissed) ”
WolfRider01 says “You're one of the hardest counters to twisted fate. Avoid getting hit by Yellow/Gold card, and you win lane. He WILL roam with R, as he does not want to fight you. Ping when he hits level 6.”
MagicalFartz1 says “Electro with cleanse or Ignite(Spellbook with teleport is also viable). Twisted fate has no kill pressure on Zoe but if paired with a aggresive jungler he has great gank setup. Spam shovd in this lane after 6 dont try to poke him under tower if u dont know were the jungler is. Only Get Mercs if they have a ap hard cc jungler like elise”
Cap Jack says “Matchups with casters and anyone else I havent mentioned are open season for dh stacking and one shotting. Play smart, take good trades and abuse mistakes. Casters are very easy to punish for mistakes.”
Lunasta says “He can easily follow you to any of your roamings, hard cc and counter gank, but he is also a very safe champion, so he will always stay out of range of your combo, be careful with this boy”
Yeager says “Start cleanse. He is super immobile so hitting him with skillshots should be easy. If you rush banshees second, he has to use 1 of his 2 damage abilities to get rid of the shield. You want to keep shoving him in to stop him from roaming.”
FalleN3 says “He is squishy but may be able to poke you quiet a bit in the early levels. You can wait for him to pick a card (other than yellow) before trying to trade with him. He will want to roam to other lanes with his ulti so be sure to do your part also, either be ahead of the roam or use teleport. You need to look for picks and roam throughout laning phase. After level 6 you should have no problem 100-0 him but be careful and aware of his jungler.”
Bouhhsolene says “He wins short trade, but you poke better, so against Twisted Fate, I would recommend going comet. Try to get some vision on the enemy jungler and try to get pressure to have more kill potential and avoiding him from roaming. Try to hit E+Q, and, if he disrespect you and misposition, run with him with R+ W and kill him.”
FalleN3 says “He is squishy but may be able to poke you quiet a bit in the early levels. Either wait for him to pick a card (other than yellow) before trying to trade with him or use your (E) to dodge it. Don't get caught without your (E) to try disengage from a poor engage. He will want to roam to other lanes with his ulti so be sure to do your part also. You need to look for picks and roam throughout laning phase. After level 6 you should have no problem 100-0 him but be careful and aware of his jungler.”
Reason97 says “Another champ more known for his roaming than his laning. Your all in beats him out, but he can easily stun you since his gold card is so easy to land once you're in range, so be sure to poke him some before moving in for a kill. Keep your team aware of where he is when you can, and use your superior range to your advantage. ”
Spection says “Very RARE. A weird ADC, but generally a source of free kills for Pantheon. Boasts zero escape (except for his ultimate) but has good utility with his clickshot stun. The second you see his cards start to cycle, try to get a stun off if you think you can reach him before the card cycles to yellow, as it will keep on cycling and he will miss his stun for a second or two, giving you time to burst him. If he tries to gate away, stun him.”
Yuki H. says “Really depends on the level of the TF player, but then again the same could be said for every matchup. A good TF player can manipulate the wave accordingly which can give you a really rough time. Make sure to actually dodge his gold card with your ult- a trick that TF players could use is while having a gold card, they could throw out their Q to fake throwing the card to bait your ult. Make sure to ward and ping mia's when he is post 6.”
Veralion says “HoB/beads. A great lane, all things considered. His W is on a low CD and is threatening in conjunction with his Q, but is very telegraphed and easy to bait. Challenge the wave, force his card, back off, let him card the wave, go up to farm a few creeps, repeat. His Q should never hit you unless you get carded like a fool. He's extremely squishy and your combo will instantly kill him if your jungler can swing by and lock him down for a second. If not, just dance around his cards, chip him down, then all in and kill at 6. People have been building AD TF more and more recently, which has much more sustained damage after he starts picking up triforce components and is a little tougher to stay in lane against. I suggest starting beads regardless of keystone. If he tries to roam, stay on him and cancel his ult with your own if possible. His camera will be elsewhere and you’ll probably kill him for free, as well as potentially baiting his own team to overcommit and die. Keep one eye on your minimap and if those 4 circles in bot lane get real close together, charge TF with your W and keep him in vision range. Keep the bot side of your lane diligently warded to catch him looking for an ult. Don’t worry so much about top; it’s not a big deal if he spends ult for one kill topside. Two or three kills into a tower and drake, however...”
RikudouDovahkiin says “His laning power is not equivalent to yours at all, however it differs in actual gameplay- which can lead to hard ganks to other lanes, as you won't be able to catch him up always, in a bad team flame and things can cause a lose, beware his stun as it can open chance to enemy team to react, in lane dodge his Q and don't get poked by constant Select A Card skill and you're OK. You may dodge his Yellow Card by entering Blood Pool while stacking your E, then continue to chase him, if you are sure about his jungler you should care his W + Flash combo to avoid easy deaths at early game- in late, it will cost even more time to get rid of stun, you should be killing him to avoid getting stunned-killed by his team with followed-up combos, which can lead you to an inevitable defeat. He will usually play with 12-18-0 and will have a strong damage potential with Void Staff etc. if he's not going to build Zhonya, remember that will almost always be possible to kill him since Zhonya is a life saver in team fights and gains time for his team to react, so without it, you may focus him easily in team fights to avoid insta-stuns for 2.5 sec which has few seconds CD. You should also avoid his damage- with Morello he can proc easily proc 'Grevious Wounds' with his high damage potential. Watch his actions, alternatively against his roaming power, you can push the first tower to punish him for ganks or you may try to join roams as well.”
Zoe Sparklepop says “Kind of a skill matchup
The Yu-Gi-Oh supremacist in a school full of Pokemon card traders is definitely not a whimp anymore.
He has a lot of hurt behind that Blue Eyes White Dragon Blue card now along with giving him mana so just try to wait for him to waste W since you outspeed him then try to poke him when it's down
Make sure to warn your team when he's level 6.”
snukumz says “Your wave clear is better than his, and you're usually out of range to get stun carded.
Keep him from roaming by constantly shoving his wave in.
Once you get 6 you should be able to dunk him.
He's sometimes hard to kill 1v1 because he builds health, try to poke him a bit low before going for an all-in. ”
1256 says “ad
ad tf player too here, if he goes jbs omnistone build he wins until 11, if he goes electro+ignite he can cheese you 3 so be careful, phage+sheen spike is huge, but its winnable
TSMyth says “I don't have to say anything about this matchup, you literally win him in everyway. Don't let him farm or anything, you can always E the minions on your way to him. And be careful from his yellow card, have your winwall ready for him.”
PepeOnDrugs says “He is squishy but may be able to poke you quiet a bit in the early levels. You can wait for him to pick a card (other than yellow) before trying to trade with him. He will want to roam to other lanes with his ulti so be sure to do your part also, either be ahead of the roam or use teleport. You need to look for picks and roam throughout laning phase. After level 6 you should have no problem 100-0 him but be careful and aware of his jungler.
Lobban says “I would pick clense against tf. For example. You are going for a turret dive, he is at half HP and no flash. He stuns you and your dead. But with clense you can keep your combo and hopefully kill him with ult for the bonus AD.”
Gageowago says “Stay out of minion wave because you will get blocked while trying to avoid his q. Keep an eye above Twisted Fate's head because the card he chooses telegraphs what he is trying to do. You can poke him when he goes for a blue card because he is going to cs. Red cards also mean cs but you shouldn't step up because you will be slowed and unable to trade back. Immediately back up if he goes for a gold card because you will either lose a trade with him or get ganked. Danger ping both lanes if you lose vision of him for a few seconds. On his own early game he is no real threat but this is one of the matchups where taking cleanse is helpful, especially if his jungler is an assassin or has high burst. Be aware that he does do a lot of damage on his own if he has taken electrocute, and that his blue card late game now hurts a ton.”
topal says “His poke is not that bad and you can outrade him if you hit your cc .His goldcard is very annoy so just w8 for him to use w and then all in him.His ult allows him to follow and match your roams very well.The matchup can go both ways.”
Capparelli says “This is almost a Major because riot seems keen on over buffing him, use canopy if he gold cards you and, have jungle gank to keep him in check, both his build's can result in you getting one shot, get Tiamat and roam to match his R ”
serruh says “can pressure you early and take over the game but honestly he's not much of a threat 1v1, also you can take over the game yourself if the matchup flips a bit on your side since you will have perma prio and by the time sidelaning comes into effect, you will be vastly more useful(assuming his team didnt snowball hard early)”
RockitoAhri says “Pressure him, push the wave, WARD (because you are pushing....), when he goes for a roam it is obvious which lane he is moving towards. You can either stop him or join the fight at about the same time. ”
G7_Zeke says “Be very wary of his range. He can probably just poke you down without you getting a single scratch on him if he's good enough. He's easy to all-in early-middish game, but late game, it's a bit more difficult.”
8wolf says “Not a popular pick nowadays. His range is pretty short, besides his q, and your waveclear outmatches his.
Beware his roams, as he can get fed on the sidelanes with his ult, so try to tell your teammates whenever he seems to get ready for a roam.”
Daedralus says “He does have the range, but a kit not very suitable against yours. If you see him pull a yellow card, simply press E, and your damage reduction will block his Stun + Q + E + thunderlord proc. If you see him using his ult, ult him to stop the channel and destroy him. You can also use your E to stop the channel. Overall, he can harass you from afar which gives him the advantage, but does not have enough damage or mana early on to beat your healing.”
Tehqo says “Laning, he is extremely easy. You'd still want to ward as he has point and click CC and is extremely prone to roaming. If he goes missing, warn your team right away, because he's definitely going to gank them. ”
Je Suis Azir says “If you position yourself properly are aware of a few things, this is a free fucking lane. Here are those things. Where his jungler is, his Gold Card, and his Roaming Potential. You can punish him whenever these things are not present. He is no threat to you unless you are playing poorly. Position yourself well, punish him as much as possible, and you will dominate this lane.”
DravensBukkake says “Cleanse matchup.
Unironically, TF is the easiest to solo kill out of any other mage. He presents the lowest solo kill potential, yet we go cleanse. Similar to Azir, he has insanely good gank pressure with gold card.
Level 1 he will red card your backline, so do not stand near them for him to do free damage. Poke him down, shove him in early until around levels 4. Level 5 he would be able to match your shove (kinda), but you always wanna shove him in anyways. After level 6, do lane wards and start perma shoving. Easy af gank setups for you past 6, very immobile and does no damage. Before then, you can also abuse him hard W Q AA spamming him into the dirt, he cannot match your poke unless he gold card Q, and he will not ever be in range to be in gold card range without tanking AA's walking up to you.”
EvilBird090 says “Twisted Fate won't be able to kill you through your sustain and good TF players won't try to do that anyway, they will push in the wave and look to support their team on the map. Try to counter push and pool his stun card when you all in him or are getting ganked. All in all he is no real threat in lane to you.”
spark2 says “TF is annoying because of his Gold Card stuns, but here's the thing: he has crazy mana problems because of his Q. He solves this with his Blue Card, so when you see him use blue card on a minion or you, he is utterly defenseless. Dodge his Qs and ping when he tries to roam to other lanes, and he's almost impossible to lose against.”
Cloud375 says “His gold cards are annoying, but that's about it. His skillshots are easy to dodge, and you naturally have more damage than him the whole game. This should be an easy lane so ABUSE YOUR DAMAGE until he dies.”
Garybaldo says “He's immobile so you can easily hit your E, still, you can't follow his roams (unless you take tp) and he'll most likely out-push you and out-poke you,ou scale better though. Spam ping side lanes whenever he goes missing, he's Twisted Fate for God's sake!”
Novok says “Pressure him, push the wave, WARD (because you are pushing....), when he goes for a roam it is obvious which lane he is moving towards. You can either stop him or join the fight at about the same time. ”
SirZeros says “Try to get help from your jungler, he hasn't really got an escape, so you could kill him in the early game. He can definetly outplay you in the late game, so take care!
Also he's way better and quicker at roaming than you, so tell your teammates to be careful when he's missing or you see him ulting and push the lane as much as you can, if you can't follow.”
Hi Im Zoky says “Twisted fate is good against zed if u can freez, farm and look for roams with ultimate. Try playing agressive but don't get caught 2v1. Use your ult to dodge he's gold card and follow up with w+e+q combo!”
Euphoric Toaster says “Not a particularly hard matchup itself, just an annoying one with things you have to keep in mind. Take Cleanse into this lane, ESPECIALLY if the enemy jungler is a high damage or high CC jungler. If you're not afraid of TF + his jungler you can take ignite to look for the solo kill or TP to try and match his map pressure. Try and push him in as best you can, but unless you're pretty ahead already, once he gets Catalyst of Eons and especially Rod of Ages (possibly even Mercury Treads) you're probably not going to be able to kill him solo. Ward in key spots to try and spot him looking for roams and be SURE to aggressively warn your sidelaners when he might be looking for a roam. If he does roam, and you can't get there quick enough, just pressure the tower for plates and deny him CS.”
ShadowFox101 says “Watch for his empowered basic attacks. You can see what card he is going to use before he uses it. If he is using Blue or Red he's likely to use it on minions, if he pulls Yellow he wants to go for you. Once he uses his W you can go for him easily.”
Xavier Senori says “Twisted Fate is super easy to deal with. You outrange, outharass, and outscale him into the late game. Early on, make sure you are harassing him to hell, do not let him farm. Twisted Fate has an awful early game and laning phase, take advantage of that. Once he hits level 6, make sure you keep him pushed to his tower so that he can't roam. If he ults another lane, punish him by taking his tower.”
Pumparum says “Twisted Fate potentially has infinite mana but it wont be enough to kill you unless he is building on hit. He can however, damage you enough with autos and call for a jungler to get a gank. You can easily follow his roams if you predict where he is headed and Snowball there premptively.”
kilgta says “He outshoves you early. You are pretty even after that. To win this lane you gotta put your whole combo on him everytimes he uses W on a minion. You should out trade him this way and have lane priority. Use your Teleport to match his ults and win game.”
unownreality says “The key here is to watch your mana consumption and try not to use abilities to push waves. Twisted fate has low wave clear, so saving your mana is vital, since he can sustain mana. Use q to stop his teleport on ult. Dont try to chase, as yellow card has a low cooldown. ”
RagexAddict says “One of your easiest matchups. Much like Talon, he can't duel you well, but he can outroam you if he knows what he's doing. Save your E for when he shows his gold card. If he uses his pick a card and picks anything other than gold card, all in him at that point. Try to always keep him pushed under his tower. He'll either have to stay in lane to catch the waves and protect tower or lose CS to try to make plays across the map.”
LyndonK9 says “Pretty easy, just poke him down and since hes squishy you can all him very easily. Taking cleanse can help you with his yellow card, because sometimes he will flash stun you when you're getting ganked. Make sure to dodge his Q and stand away from minions when he has red card. It's pretty easy to see when he's trying to go in because he's choosing a card so walk back when he does so. ”
YourBestSenpai says “Shouldn't be hard, no jumps or shields or anything like that to dodge your charm, and you also can deny his roam when he ults, which sounds pretty good, as you most probably will kill him straight after that”
AgreeableOtter says “A good TF Player can make lane hell for you. But a bad one is free 300 gold every time he comes back to lane.
If you are looking for an all in, try to dodge his Gold Card with Death Mark and beat him. Don't walk too close to your minions when he has a red card up.
When his W is down it is usually a good time to all in him even pre 6.
Keep him pushed in so if he roams he at least loses a wave and you get some turret plating gold.”
noolan says “He would be completely useless against you except, he has a long stun. NEVER ult onto him if he has his w up, unless you are fed. Other than his stun, he has nothing to stop you from destroying him and winning the lane.”
Shderen says “A skill match-up leaning towards your favour. His damage mainly comes from W+Q which are easily silenced. Quick reactions with your E can also prevent his ult at level 6. Later on, he'll likely knock your socks off with his crazy damage, so knock him out early.”
aButteredPoptart says “TF will probably never be able to kill you solo. He just isn't built for that. The only threats he has are ganks and roaming. If he picks gold card, go to the opposite side of the lane he's standing because that is probably where his jungler is. Ping missing often, as TF's threat comes from roams, not killing you in lane.”
BicBee says “Try to always keep TF under tower or at least pushed to discourage his roaming. Ward heavy as you're the aggressor in lane and will get ganked. Very rarely can he solo you in lane. Every time he throws down blue/red card to CS immediately step in to harass. Don't stay near minions so he has to choose to spend mana to harass you or to CS. Good TFs will ult to lanes after backing making it hard for you to predict/stop/follow him. Beware of that. ”

AzureArmatt says “Twisted fate struggles against assassins but his true strength lies in his roam ability. he can punish you in lane if you let him stun you with his gold card and land his Q (wild cards). He's scary after getting 2 items. he will be everywhere if he gets ahead so better keep an eye on him and ping him missing and if possible try to follow him. if you see him teleporting you can stop it with your charm. Get some defense, if he's aggressive get zhonya becuase he will try to flash + gold card you, if he's playing it more safetly then banshe's veil will make your life easier. consider buying mercury's treads if he gets you stunned easily to avid his follow up damage.”
Shaawn says “Start E lvl 1. If he tries to push by red carding your caster minions, dash up to his face and chunk him down. Do not be scared of poke as you have your shield and bone plating. With proper vision, you are looking to play as aggressive as possible and try get a kill in laning phase. At 6 you want to shove in his lane when he has ult up, and ward the sides to limit his roaming. You can use windwall to stop his waveclear, unless you have a good all-in opportunity.”
NocUout says “He's not as difficult to deal with, as his only real threat on you is his gold card which you can dodge with your ultimate. Just play this matchup like you would with most mages and all in level 6. ”
thedonk says “Similar to Annie, go in when he doesn't have his W or Yellow Card. He doesn't really burst you down like Annie so he is a smaller threat. Make sure to ping that he is level 6 in case he decides to roam.”
Padrepio says “Long ranges are hard to manage. If you have to, try to engage when he picks his blue card, so he cannot stun you. Tell your teammates when he hits 6 and call every ss, because he can teleport into other lanes.”
overweight_zoe says “Pretty hard lane for TF to interact with as a 1 on 1. Keep him shoved in and make sure to keep deep wards in the jungle and river alleys to discourage him from roaming with his ult. ”
Finish Flash says “Whenever Twisted Fate pulls out his W, you want to walk up and get ready to E when he throws it out; your E will negate his W. If you negate his W, you will always win the trade. Be patient in this matchup. Most TF players will know they are at a disadvantage and will play safe. Win this lane through well timed trades and landing your ultimates.”
apsonalol says “Twisted Fate era mais comum encontrar no NA do que no servidor Brasileiro, mas quando estamos jogando contra um TF queremos gankar ele, então abuse de chamadas para campa-lo, aliás ele morto não tem como ultar pra ajudar ninguém.”
qasddsa says “Can be dangerous because of his Gold card, but otherwise he has no other threat on you. He can push a lot better than you, but you can still trade back with Q. After level 6, he'll definitely outroam you initially if he uses his ult, so when that happens just push tower and punish him for leaving lane. ”
Draczor says “Easy lane, he won't be able to win trades against you. Pressure him from farming and poke him a lot but try not to fight too long with him and avoid getting hit by his W. Simply doing Q + AA and E is enough. Make sure to push hard if his ultimate is up to make it harder for him to roam. You can push tower and make him lose cs if he tries to make a gank with his ultimate and try not to forget pinging your other laners if he is missing. You can follow up with TP if he tries to roam bot with his ult but that depends on the situation, otherwise just push mid. I recommend taking Cleanse in this matchup since a stun from him might put you in a bad spot especially if his jungler or team also have cc. But teleport is always fine too to follow up on his ult roams.”
Exiled Heretic says “He would be a higher threat if you didn't take teleport. You can keep up with his roams with it. He has his gold card which makes you vulnerable to gank's and usually rushes movement speed making him a permanent roam champion”
Sozzoh says “Twisted Fate is fairly easy. While his point and click stun can be pretty annoying, that's pretty much all you have to worry about. Twisted Fate post-6 will most definitely roam, so once you don't see him in lane, warn your team as he will show up and gank. Warding is very useful in this situation, so try and get deep wards and even try to ward in the enemy jungle to help you keep vision of where the enemy jungler is, and where TF is. If you want to make TF cry, get Banshee's if you really want. That way his point and click stun won't work the first time.”
Katapullt says “A good TF destroys you. Engage him when he used his "Pick a Card" (W). Warn your teammates when he reached lvl 6 and when he leaves the lane. You can go cleanse in this matchup to avoid getting caught on ganks”
undeadsoldiers says “He can be pretty annoying. Beware of the yellow card and Q poke. His roams are great and pretty scary. He will out-roam you, so it's better to just stay in lane and use that time to farm and get XP and just ping him missing, don't follow him.”
asffg123 says “Twisted Fate has cc, making you prone to ganks. However, as long as you trade correctly, you should win against him. You should have an equal laning phase.
Warning - This champion can and will roam to counter a safe playstyle. Ping accordingly.”
