“Veigar doesn't have the damage to solokill you but his cage will stop your dash so you have to be careful.”
“Pretty easy matchup, your w can go through his ultimate , also your w can block his ultimate, you'll oneshot him, just watch when he uses his ult, when you are inside his w, dont just go awat with your w , just poke him and dodge”
“I'll poke him with E-AA early on and force out his TP. After level 3 I'll avoid passive procs unless I trust my happy feet to dodge his Q-W inside his cage. All in all, I out-range him and he's an easy target for a one-shot before he gets Zhonya's (I'll get a Zhonya's of my own for his R). He scales extremely well though so having a jungler drop by and shut him down early is a good idea.”
“Yone is great against immobile mages like veigar. His only CC (the cage) can be countered with your E2 since it makes you unstoppable, so you can basically go for trades already from level 3 and play really aggressive in this lane. This is a lane where you will be looking for kills early on. The only thing you have to watch out for are jungle ganks. ”
“Very easy early game, start E and play very aggressive without taking too much damage or making yourself too gankable. Walk past wave and look for hooks if you can. If he refuses to walk anywhere near you then roam. You will NEED a hexdrinker this game unless he is literally 0/10. Stay aware of his cage if you're going after someone near him. Don't use flash for kills later in the game because you will need it to get out of the cage. ”
“High dmg and that's all. If you can play around cage without getting stunned even when inside it then this match up is easy. Just keep throwing q's at him from inside the cage he will be focusing on hitting you, not the q's, making it easy to hit. A W will force out his cage easy. Watch for ganks as Veigar makes ganks on you easy.”
“His kit is very straight forward and his cage is super easy to spellshield. He is also an easy Q target. Be aware of his burst damage with ult though.”
“TIPS: Just like vladimir veigar is mostly looking to scale up. Be careful for his cage and get mercs if you feel like you need them.”
“Glacial augment veigar is really popoular atm. Normally champions lose out on damage when going glacial, and in exchange they get more CC. Veigar doesn't really lose out on that much damage compared to other users of glacial augment (Ahri for example) because of his passive.
Your counter against glacial augment build is phase rush. You also want cleanse if they have an oppressive jungler or someone with hard CC. Banshee's veil is a great item against veigar and his E.
In the laning phase, veigar is quite weak early on. He will always try to prepare 2 minions at once in order to kill them at once with Q, and get the most out of his passive.
You can bully him a lot early on and punish whenever he's walking up too close to farm. Against aggressive junglers, you can also pull the wave towards your side of the lane. Veigar has 0 mobility, so if he's forced to play at your side of the lane, he will be exposed to ganks. ”
“Veigar is pretty easy to lane against, you just don't want to get caught in his cage otherwise he'll be able to trade with you. You will win almost every trade avoiding all of his abilities until late game where he'll just press R on you. Try avoid this too...”
