“Ultimately Viego is like facing Pantheon and his spear jab, as all Viego can really do is (Q) spam to reach you from range you really want to try to fight in the open away from walls / terrain otherwise he will have the advantage, fighting in the jungle isn’t a good idea vs Viego because of his E and his Ultimate. His E will allow him to gain camouflage and be able to hop in and out of vision which offers him a lot of extra kill protection and survivability. Max your Blinding Dart due to his auto attack reliant nature as well. Viego’s Passive allows him to possess a dead body and take their basic abilities (Q-W-E) and items (among other things). When he does this, he becomes invulnerable and can dodge incoming damage but you can drop a shroom at his feet.”
“Keep fights away from walls, don't let him get free poke early, and abuse your sustain advantage over him at level 4 onward. Your level 6 power spike is much stronger so wait for that if you're having trouble for whatever reason. Viego will have a better-extended trade so use the standard burst trade to chunk him down and go for the kill on round two. His stun is ranged but you can see it coming.”
“Play safe in early game.
Destroy him when you have R.
Very important is anty-heal - Bramble Vest.”
“This matchup I have only played twice toplane, but from my games, I think it is okay. I will update this more when I face him more.
E cancels his W stun, and basically play the lane aggro, and if he uses his stealth ability, try to fight him after it expires because you have a short window to do a lot of damage to him.
Post 6, if he Rs you, Vault him instantly and run away to escape his engage. Do not dive him when his stealth ability is up becasue it is such a good ability to prevent diving from happening.”
“Outrange you with his 225 range when you have only 125. When he uses his Q or dash try to all in him. Try to move a lot in this matchup. Tabi and executioner are good items vs Viego.”
“Easy matchup, just be careful with early levels.at level 3 you can start making quick trades and at level 6 you can just all-in him, and you'll always win. Get Executioner's Calling or Plated Steel caps”
“Dodge his Spectral Maw(W) or get stuned and fully combo by Viego. Take note his skill Blade of the Ruined King(Q) can deal a chuck of your health and his (Q) passive will remain active while under possession. Fight him outside of Harrowed Path(E) or he will gain buff within the platform for his attack speed and movement speed. Dodge his Heartbreaker(R) and you should be able to out trade if you have grevious wound items for Viego. (Sustained 1v1 Trades: Even) (Outscaling Edge: Viego) (Recommended Items: Thornmail or Morellos)”
“viego auto-wins at every stage of lane phase but thats only if you go mentally afk and let him spam q+autos on you, he will perma clear waves and heal back any trades so dont bother fighting him, once you get gore+tabis+brambles you can auto win if you dodge his w or space out yourself properly so you dont allow him to constantly auto you, otherwise this is a skill match up in your favor once you get enough haste to be able to keep him zoned. ”
“Viego just his heal nerfed his strength lies in his trades and his percentage dmg + execution. Beat him with Q Poke or go Grasp Build and Max E he probably won't stand a chance”
“Keep your distance. He is really weak early. He can't really do much in lane. Stay behind minions and if he goes invisibile go a bit back so he can't hit his stun.”
