Tips Against Vel'Koz in Middle Lane Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors
Yamikaze says “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. ”
lkycch says “Understand that he has highly potent waveclear and poke, so don't waste your mana trying to poke him in lane. Focus on waveclear and let him push, so that your jungler can gank. Use TS+GLP to setup Q+W+Q stuns on him from afar, so that he can't combo you down and has to focus on running away. Be smart about which angle you engage on him, as running together in a straight line with your teammates means he can hit you all with his ult simultaneously. Remember: Summoner's Rift is a 5V5, not a 1v1. You don't have to stay in lane and suffer a losing matchup!”
lkycch says “You can engage on him as soon as his Q slow is down. You have to learn to dodge the angle of his Q as the particles split. If you manage to stun him with E+Q+W+Q, your ADC can followup and burst him down. Use TS+GLP to setup Q+W+Q stuns on him from afar, so that he can't combo you down and has to focus on running away. Be smart about which angle you engage on him, as running together in a straight line with your teammates means he can hit you all with his ult simultaneously. Remember: Summoner's Rift is a 5V5, not a 1v1. You don't have to stay in lane and suffer a losing matchup!”
Yeager says “Matchup very similar to Xerath. The difference between those 2 is the fact that vel'koz has MORE kill potential in lane because he falls off as the game progresses. You have to focus on dodging his E(a displacement ability) that can hold you in place for him to land his entire combo, and his Q(his poke ability with a slow). If you get hit by any of those, he can burst you down with his ultimate. I suggest rushing tier 2 boots ASAP (usually right after lost chapter is completed). His Q can be body blocked, so stay in the minion wave to dodge it easily. Even though he has the range advantage, you outscale him hard, so you don't have to force anything in the laning phase. Glacial Augment vel'koz is also really popular atm. Phase Rush is a good counter to the slows (from his abilities and items)”
Drewmatth Taliyah says “Corrupting Potion because Intensive Poke and sustain is heavily needed. Biscuits MIGHT work too but I'd rather have Minion Dematerializer.
Ring + 2 Pots also work because you will be able to kill him pre 6 as he actually needs to get a bit close to minions to last hit. It is a very easy matchup because his E is predictable and post 6 you can just keep your W for his R. Get boots if you cannot dodge his E. If you still cannot dodge his E roam, he can push as good as you if not better but he cannot roam and his follow(s) will be slow. Be careful of him when he follows because of his ult. In teamfights you can disrupt as well his ult with your W. Usually winnable matchup due to his inability to deal consistent damage pre 6 when you get too close. Learn his Q pattern in the first levels and you should be fine, hitting Vel'Koz Q's consistently is extremely difficult and you can predict it without fuss if you focus a bit. ”
eiensiei says “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.”
Sylvan Lore says “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”
PlayCabex says “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”
sweodigaming says “His passive deals true damage and can easily delete you, build tanky items like Protobelt, Liandry's Torment and such. He has far more range than you. Doding his Q and E is mediocrely easy however.”
FalleN3 says “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.”
Twitch.Tv-LimitBreaker88 says “Well... This comes down to dodging his stuff. Just keep in mind, that you are playing a dodge game and that he is extremely easy kill with your jungler after 6. You can also cancel his R. Usually this just becomes a waveclear lane and is decided in the eamfight stage. ”
FalleN3 says “He out-ranges you a LOT and hits hard. Try to not get hit by his combo's. This is a difficult lane pre 6 but if you don't eat up his combo's all the time you will put yourself in a great position to punish him once you have your ultimate. This lane is really going to rely on how decent you are at avoiding his skill shots and knock up. He has 4 skill shots which makes your mobility very difficult for him to deal with. When he ulti's you, you can (E) or (Q) to him and then walk behind him if need be. After level 6 this lane gets easier.”
Dr Eggmund says “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. ”
Fuzzmonkey says “Dodge his E and you should win all trades since it's quite hard for him to hit all his other abilities. When level 6, try and bait his ult with your W placement this is an easy way of getting him to waste his ult. ”
AP WormMaW Mid says “Velkoz is possibly hardest matchup, that you might have against any mage-type champion. Main reason is, that his damage output with full combo is insane and even if you build MR, it will not save you against his true damage. Last biggest thing is, that you don't have any interrupt for his ult, so if he manages to land combo, you are most likely dead. In this case just farm up and try to not get killed. You can poke a bit from behind, but don't get into his E range if possible. When you hit level 16, you should be able to win game through pure poke, because your range is just incredibly high compared to his, but mostly it's not easy to get there.”
Yuki H. says “Difficult lane due to his range and W, which can go through minions. He isn't much of a threat unless you are hit 3 times with his abilities which proc his passive (bonus true damage). As long as his passive doesn't proc, you can pretty much out trade him every time. Once again, your ult and W can dodge any of his abilities so use them wisely. He is also an immobile champion so ask for frequent ganks (junglers love ganking immobile lanes). This is, of course, if you aren't pushed into his tower.”
FalleN3 says “He out-ranges you a LOT and hits hard. Try to not get hit by his combo's. This is a difficult lane pre 6 but if you don't eat up his combo's all the time you will put yourself in a great position to punish him once you have your ultimate. This lane is really going to rely on how decent you are at avoiding his skill shots and knock up. He has 4 skill shots which makes your mobility very difficult for him to deal with. When he ulti's you, you can dash to him and then walk behind him if need be. Use your shroud to your advantage.”
LunarVortex says “Vel'Koz outranges and outdamages you by a lot. NEVER waste your E on his Q and W poke when he has E and R ready, try to dodge it instead. Buy early boots to make dodging easier. You can catch him offguard and Q him while he's ulting someone else.”
Fadedreformed says “Pretty hard matchup, he will always outrange you, you will have trouble poking or getting close to him to actually damage. After somepoing he will q + ult you so care about his powerspike. Dance like a Michael Jackson and you shall be fine”
ItzJavAgain says “Lots of poke,watch out for when his R does true damage,if you can Q him right when he uses R you will avoid almost all his damage and even if u didnt have a Q reset mark It is more than worth”
elnino9 says “Play aggressive when his Q is on CD. Setup Q daggers when he's going for CS. He's VERY squishy and can be out-traded. If he misses knock up, he's open. Careful when he's level 6 because his ult does PLENTY of damage and if you don't have E ready you'd eat a lot of the damage. His ult makes him stationary, take advantage of this. You can all in with EW, but as soon as you do, walk to the side to avoid his knock up, you should anticipate this.”
SkellyBirb says “Vel'Koz can burst you from high health once he hits level 6. He has quite a bit of poke, so position yourself carefully to dodge it. Shrines early on are important to staying in lane.”
Veralion says “HoB/DH, Sword/Dark seal. Vel'koz is quickly becoming one of my favorite lanes as I practice it more and more, and is actually quite a lot of fun to play into. All of his spells are telegraphed and should not hit you, with the exception of the first tick of his W. Back off when that inevitably hits you; it’s a quick cast and a wide area, so it will happen. Make sure not to let him proc his passive. Most of the difficulty of the matchup comes from learning his Q, which is a unique and deceptive mechanic. Hide behind your wave so he can’t directly Q you, then dodge back if he tries to split it around your shields. His E has a very short range but will guarantee his combo if it connects, and is his most threatening ability. If you were close enough that he can follow up a Q hit with an E, you’ve f***ed up. A good Vel will shoot E's right in front of creeps that are about to die, attempting to catch you when you walk up to last hit them. Pay extra special attention to this and don't walk into his trap. You'll take a full combo and be forced to back. If you do this after 6, you probably just die from full. You can wreck him at 6 if he is dumb enough to int into range; he is extremely squishy, builds greedy, and you can easily kill him through barrier, but his spells don’t force him to and a good player won’t give you the chance. If you see a moment, don’t chase after him immediately after ulting in. If he lands E and full combos, you almost certainly will die. Mash flash if he tries to catch you with E at your landing spot. If he is truly determined to play safe, it’s best to either just ult in place and chunk him from range or roam. He's got no mobility and won't be able to answer.”
Sephix92 says “The Problem against vel koz to cover him against his pokes couse his range play you fast out but your still strong enough against him you need to go all in if you want dangerous enough poking fights he will win .”
Frixen says “This is a completely skill matchup. You can get onto him with your gold card, and win extended trades, but the key to it is dodging his abilities. It purely comes down to that. I suggest taking ghost. ”
Zoe Sparklepop says “Low Major
He outranges you and hurts like hell with his passive but he is fairly easy to dodge, After 6 he has the annoying Q then R to slow you so that the Q lands so be wary of it.”
AZIR MEN says “Treat him like Xerath. Kind of a skill match up. His wave clear is god. Try to keep up with it. Watch out for how many stacks he has on you because it'll do true damage and watch out for his knockup. Very immobile tho, easy to shuffle.
PepeOnDrugs says “He out-ranges you a LOT and hits hard. Try to not get hit by his combo's. This is a difficult lane pre 6 but if you don't eat up his combo's all the time you will put yourself in a great position to punish him once you have your ultimate. This lane is really going to rely on how decent you are at avoiding his skill shots and knock up. He has 4 skill shots which makes your mobility very difficult for him to deal with. When he ulti's you, you can dash to him and then walk behind him if need be. Use your shroud to your advantage.
Debonair Karma says “Vel'koz's poke isn't all that threatening. It's all fairly easy to dodge. Unless he takes glacial augment. Then he's going for hextech-glp and twin shadows. In that case you don't stand a chance. He'll permaslow you and land his full combo on you, which is always a guaranteed death. Take teleport/barrier/heal and get a corrupting pot”
Lil Tidepod says “His spells are easy to dodge. Sit on the opposite side of the minion wave that he's on. This will help you to avoid his long ranged ability. If he misses his knockup, all in him, because he can't do anything to stop you unless he's fed.”
Sanctuar says “Even experienced players will have one weakness: After using both of their W charges to clear the wave, they are open for engages. Use this to your advantage, but make sure you dodge his E while going after him. If you struggle laning against him, make up for it by roaming other lanes post lvl 6, since your roaming is superior to his.”
Capparelli says “A good vel'koz is still able to smash you, a bad one will regret picking an immobile mage, stay behind minions avoid poke and all in at level 4ish after he uses Q or both of his W's , you do not need Hexdrinker unless you are really losing, but if you are it wont help much because of his true damage”
BigBushMan says “This matchup is pretty similar to Xerath in the sense that if you get onto him he cant get you off, but be careful of his E as if he hits that he can one shot you in later stages. Shove the wave and look to roam to make plays on the side lanes. ”
Noodles912 says “Squishy with super slow abilities. Save your E for his E, and look for all ins with your shark. Roam a lot. If you win your lane, it is game over for the enemy team, and he will struggle to come back. Mercs is okay, but PTA is amazing.”
Kami_EU says “By dodging Vel's abilites through unexpected movements is the best bet to win VS Vel'Koz.
Yasuo's Windwall will stop Vel'Koz's Q, W and E.
For this reason it's a heavily Yasuo favoured matchup.
jster131 says “Vel'Koz is no issue as long as you dodge his abilities by either juking them or by using your e. Once he used his abilities or runs out of mana, all in him as he will be forced to use at least one of his Summoner Spells and you can maybe get a kill of of that.”
8wolf says “Mostly played as a supp. If he tries to get his combo on you, you can get out of his range with your e. If he ults and you think you can burst him down, go in and interrupt his ult with yours, or dash around him since it takes some time for him to turn around.”
Tehqo says “He has literally no mobility whatsoever, and it's easy to dodge his skillshots. If you push lane and poke him, he's going to cry like a little baby. Stand behind minions and be careful of his skillshots and you're good.”
NebuIa says “Annoying levels of poke, it's like a worse Xerath. Hide behind minions and don't get hit by his E, and you should be fine. Care for his R damage, it does a LOT even if he only hits Q with it. Corrupting pot will help, and maybe heal, as they don't really go ignite.”
TheBlueImperial says “A very annoying matchup because of his poke and true damage but you're capable of shoving his lane in and burning his mana bar which will force him to back or miss more CS under tower.”
Je Suis Azir says “Be mindful of his stupid annoying abilities. Same thing as with Xerath, don't let him hit both you and the minions, and try and dodge his shit best you can. All you have to do is hardpush, wait for 6 and then you can fuck his head with your jungler. ”
TheSpark says “One of my favorite mages, he works similarly to you in that he lands his cc and bursts you down. His Q poke can be tricky to dodge, and if he maxes W his wave clear will be better than yours.
Get your jungler to help gank him, as he is very immobile and only has one slower moving hard cc.”
GalioPlayer says “Absolute cancer of a character , his entire kit has so much range in it that you literally cant get in e distance , even when you flash e its very unlikely that you will hit , and like every other mage , vel scales like a motherfucker so its really hard to outplay this guy at any stage of the game, though if you do get in range you can oneshot .”
cobbzy says “He plays far back and poke soften but is by far one of the most squishy champs in the game. If you can catch him in an all in or maybe during his ult, he is an easy kill. Just dodge poke. Go Doran's shield.”
i am a heron says “velkoz will push you into tower and poke you out of lane. he'll keep you from using your bushes or your Q and melt through your moderate tankiness. he'll scale up and be a monster late-game while you lag behind. bad bad lane. if you end up having to play this, your best bet is to gank him repeatedly and just keep him from ever playing the lane, because you can beat him in the first few levels with your OP shield and your Q is a jungler's wet dream. If VK is smart, though, he won't let you get that close. the good news is that most people play VK bot, not mid, so you shouldn't see him here.”
DravensBukkake says “Ignite/TP matchup.
Treat him like other mages. Rule number one, do not stand next to minions. Force him to pick, shove you win or poke you. If he shoves you in, poke him. If he pokes you, shove him in. Never let him accomplish 2 things using abilities.
Level 1 if he starts Q, shove that bitch in. If he starts W, harass him hard. W Q AA poke and back off. Continue this process. At around first-second backs, he will be able to shove you in, however he is easy 300g for your jungler with ez af shuffles.”
Mid Win Repeat says “You can stomp him but this is a very annoying lane because his abilities are longer ranged than yours so its hard to close the gap on him. Not much he can do though even if he ults just W him to cancel it.”
HeisendongNA says “He counters Heimerdinger if he plays safe and just clears your turrets from range and pokes you down. Even though this matchups is not as oppressive as other poke/waveclear matchups like Syndra, Ziggs or Xerath. Dodge his knock-up at all cost and max W to match his waveclear.”
Tayna says “He's only annoying. Tbh if you get used to dancing around lane, you can dodge most of his abilities lol.
He can't run tho, and that's a plus because if you go all-in, you'll probably kill him”
Cloud375 says “Not too hard to win this one, just dodge his skillshots and you should be fine as long as you can beat him early game. If you can't, then you're in trouble because his threat level shoots straight through the roof.”
Euphoric Toaster says “Heimer is weak vs artillery mages, but Vel'Koz is probably the easiest of them to manage. His Q can be blocked by the wave or your turrets and his W is good for pushing the wave but has limited range and does little damage to you. The only way he should be able to kill you early is if he lands his E after poking you down (which shouldn't happen) and he combos you, or with the help of his jungler. He begins to HURT when he gets Luden's Echo and Magic Penetration, so you have to be quick with dodging his abilities and also be especially wary of him firing at you from over walls/in fog of war. If he ever Ults you, hes locked in his channel meaning you get a free RE onto him which can result in an Ult trade or possibly even a kill if hes low/you combo it with turret lasers.”
Chromuro says “*sigh* The Void isn't always nice with you and Vel'koz is everything but friendly. A good Vel'koz will make sure to break your passive whenever he can and his W+P will delete minions from existence. If you get caugth in his E without having the passive active, say goodbye to this cruel world. Farm the most you can and ask ganks to your jungler before it's too late (aka before you get 0/10 in 15 minutes).”
Wizboy73 says “Vel'koz can poke you out if you cant dodge his shots, but he is vunerable for your W since he is immobile. try to bait out his r and then place your W over him, then its a free kill. Take barrier to not get blown up.”
Vispectra says “Poke mage that's really good at poking. He'll make your lane quite the pain and you'll probably miss a lot of CS and EXP due to his constant harassing. Although you can cancel his R with a Q , getting in range is the problem. Vel koz will usually hold onto his E waiting for you to jump onto him only to be knocked up and then heavily damaged or killed by him. Try to slip into sidelanes later on to make up for the loss and ping for help , he's immobile.”
kilgta says “in laning phase try to ult his ult to cancel it. You can also Q his ult. In teamfights you gotta find a way to get to him. try zhonya and mercs. If he doesnt harass you level 1 to level 3, work towards poking him and killing him. A passive velkoz early is a bad velkoz. Start corrupt pot.”
unownreality says “Velkoz is equally as bursty as lux. Both are matched fairly well. I reccomend playing slightly off the minion line, to avoid the inevitable W farm, but close enough to avoid the Geometry wars of his Q. Best chance to get them is right after using his knockup. You are slightly outranged on singularity here, so he has the small advantage, but mostly its a skill matchup. ”
RagexAddict says “You're one of Vel'Koz's biggest counters. His E is hard to land even on an immobile target. When that ability is down, make sure to be aggressive at that point. It's very hard for him to turn while using his ultimate, and your ultimate will also stop his from channeling. If he does try to counter attack with his ult. Use your E to position yourself behind him after you ult him so he can't lock you down.”
LyndonK9 says “Geometry. When he Qs don't walk away from him but walk towards him or stand in your minion wave. Walk out of minion wave when his Q is down because he always Ws the wave. Squishy and very all-inable.”
YourBestSenpai says “From my experience, it's pretty easy to deal with him. He will try to spam you with his skills in lane, try to dodge them as best as you can, you counter his ult great, so unless you are sure you can kill him, don't use your charm until he ults.”
BL00dY3nD says “You will learn to dodge like a pro. If you dodge you can 1 shot him. He is easy to kill if you know how to dodge. After 2-3 games you will be a pro against him. You can counter his R with your W.”
Bughans says “Can imagine this guy is gonna be a problem, luckily high skilled champions don't get played much in silver. God, please let me somehow get to gold so atleast my teammates know what they're doing.”
MrMad2000 says “It's really easy to gapclose and kill Vel'koz. He has no escape and as long as you dodge his Q and E, the worst situation your lane will be is a stalemate that will allow you to scale and get your two core items.”
BicBee says “Wait out Velkoz stacks before fighting. Play around minions to avoid getting hit by his geometry. You should be able to win against him pretty easily. Usually Velkoz will put the knock up close to him if you're going forward for a kill. Save a charge of ult to avoid his knock up if you can't predict. ”
BicBee says “Depends on how well you dodge his skills. If you're struggling with dodging then build boots ASAP. Don't fight him while he has stacks on you. In general you can win trades pretty easily because it's easier to dodge his skills than for him to dodge yours. Be mindful of his E when walking in to QW him. ”
AzureArmatt says “Vel koz is Poke mage with great potential to burst his targets but his abilities are quite easy to doge if you are familiar with them. His most dangerous combo starts with his AoE knock up on E followed by W and Q finished by his R. his passive apply "research" stacks that let him "research" his target, once you are researched (hit 3 stacks) u will receive a chunk of true damage and vel koz ultimate will deal true damage to you instead of magic damage which is way worse for somebody like Ahri and her low hp pool. so run away from his ultimate and abilities so he won't be able to do his "research" and you will win that lane if you manage to close the distance between you and him since his poke range is superior compared to yours”
Shaawn says “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.”
Enfurnal says “Vel'Koz require extreme geometry to play. As long as you know what E=MC^2 is... You will be fine. Okay for reals though........ Just don't get hit by three of his abilities because if you do his passive will do TRUE damage to you. When you are low and you get hit by his W... AND you don't have F or R........... YOU will pretty much die.”
thedonk says “Go in when he doesn't have his E, or make him waste it. Hide by your minions to avoid his Q. He'll most likely try to farm just using his abilities. Bait his R with your W and buy Banshee's if you are having trouble with him.”
Valor_Chaos says “Kind of an annoying match up. Id honestly put him somewhere between major and even. All of his attacks are skill shots, but he out ranges you easily pre 11. Another farming lane until 11. ”
Jammy158 says “Annoying poke and range. However, you have mobility to all-in and he's vulnerable. Find all-in opportunites and kill him. Be careful of his burst at 6 since your Windwall cannot block his ulti.”
qasddsa says “Oppressive laning phase. I recommend you to not let him push you in; keep the lane towards you side (but near the middle) or push up towards him when you're safe. Definitely want to run Fleet and a Doran's Shield in this lane. After level 6, it gets a lot easier for you especially if you can avoid his W knockup and silence his ult if he starts using it.”
Sozzoh says “Relatively easy lane. Vel'Koz's skillshots are pretty easy to dodge. Pre-6 you'll want to push him under turret and watch him cry. Post-6 be careful because his Ult does more than you think. Since Vel'Koz has no mobility, it's pretty easy to Shurima Shuffle him into your turret.”
Witwickies says “This match-up is test of your skills at dodging skillshots. It all comes to this, and, as you have much better poke, you have to dominate line at first levels. Always be first to all-in and... it's pretty all here.”
AQRC Turtle says “Easy mathup for zed once u get lvl 6. try to get lvl advantage and engage him when his abilities are on cd. Also use your minion wave to protect urself from his skillshot and keep walking to avoid getting harass easily.”
Smol Jelly says “Vel'koz has good wave clear, abnormal poke, and a dangerous passive. Keep an eye out for projectiles, which will set up the whole kit. If you dodge the Q projectile, and poke accordingly, you should be fine. Remember that the ult locks Vel'koz in place, so you can get a clean ult off if Vel'koz is low for an easy kill.”
Terrific says “Only reason he's in Major is because a good Vel'Koz will ruin your day. But most Vel'Koz players are super bad and because of that i would put him in minor because it's just 2 to 3 hit material if they are bad players.”
ShroudedBRH says “Velkos does extra damage when landing three consecutive spells or every 3rd tic of his ultimate. Once he gets enough mana regen he can spam Q safely however he is extremely vulnerable to CC and all ins due to low mobility and hp”
xf3NNI3 says “This champion is extremely obnoxious, has double the range of you, can poke you on every cs you try to take, has very low mana costs and extremely high poke and purst damage, while his E also provides him with safety if you try to run towards him. He absolutely demolishes short range marksmen in botlane and is an extremely underrated champion both as a botlaner and a support.”
Eccentricks says “Another Mage Support, this one not quite as scary as Veigar. Play it safe, and be sure to make plays on his ult cooldown. Mostly focus on knocking him down before you fight the AD Carry.”
Xerxes Is ADC says “Will get strong if the game goes too long, rapid fire and death's dance might be recommended if he does get fed. However, if you can dodge his first couple of abilities, then you'll be able to run at him when he's alone and destroy him. Use your E to cc him and you'll have a bigger window to move on him. Combine your support and he's most likely dead.”
