“He out-ranges you a LOT and hits hard. Take Movement Speed Quints for this game and try to not get hit by his combo's. This is a difficult lane but if you manage to get up to him while he is ulting, you can stun him which will interrupt it. This lane is really going to rely on how decent you are at avoiding his skill shots and knock up. ROA or another HP item will be of great use here since he deals a fair chunk of true damage.”
“I poke him with E without going for passive procs after level 3, as he'll deal more damage with his combo, even through my W. He can constantly push me in and poke under tower with Q while I'm forced to use all my mana to CS. The best advice I have for this match-up is "just dodge and CS enough to stay relevant". I'll build Zhonya's for his R and if I feel like I'm having a really rough time, I'll get Mercury's Treads.”
“Outranged, don't even bother trying to fight this champ because you'll get knocked up and lasered into the grey screen.
“All his abilities are skillshots, making him really weak against mobile champions like Yasuo. You can use windwall to block Q,W and E but NOTnot the ultimate. If he makes the mistake of walking too far up, dash onto him and play as aggro as possible because you have the advantage in a minion wave. In the later stages of the game you should pressure in the sidelane because he won't be able to match you/run away. ”
“Dodge dodge and dodge. This lane is a mini game for Vladimir if he wins by dodging Velkoz's abilities then you should beat him. Be as aggresive as you can when he wastes his abilities. Vladimir is a champion all about timing, waiting for the enemy for their cooldowns is key to winning this lane. ”
“You need to dodge as much as you can, he is very squishy which means you can kill him very easily , when you are near him and he ults , ult and go kill him , when away run with your w don't run when you are fed , just 1shot him”
“Vel'koz is a strong champion into Orianna with high damage and long range skillshots. Keep in mind when he throws out his Q, that he can cancel it early if you dodge towards him. You can win trades only if you dodge his abilities while landing yours. Any time he lands an E, you will more than likely lose the trade pre-6 or die post 6 so stay out of range. Your ult can be used to cancel his if you are quick which may save your team in a lategame fight. Other than that, do your best to shield your allies and peel in team fights while damaging to be more useful than he is.
Recommend: Barrier and Vs. AP Assassin Build”
“He has good poke, but if you can land a Rupture or two, he is no problem. Squishier than almost anyone, and also immobile, he's an easy target for an all-in burst. You will need to beware of eating too many skillshots though. If he stacks them up, you will take true damage and it hurts!”
“A standard poke mage with very little to keep you off him. He's squishy, immobile, and has damage easy to dodge/cancel. Take the Resolve page and MR.”
“whenever he uses his R, dont be afraid to R and cancel his. dodge his skillshots and finish him. He's squishy and weak, it should be free. ”
