Champions to counter Riven.

#1R_JackalPosted 12/15/2011 10:13:11 PM
So, I'm thinking some manner of kiting or maybe someone with low cooldowns/high burst? Not sure.

Reason I'm asking is, I need a good 1v1 counterpick to Riven as I'm betting with a friend who is better. I KNOW he's going to pick Riven because I suck at dealing with her.

Who is a decent choice for a champ to counter her?

anyone with CC.

anyone with armor.

Alternatively, just pick Rammus, Amumu, or Trundle. Considering it's 1v1.
Bullet Hell is a fun place.

Olaf wins lane against Riven pretty hard.

I find i pretty easily take her as Garen solo top...Or someone with high built in sustain will be able to push her around quite a bit until she gets her wriggles and by then you hopefully have enough of a gold lead to be able to out gear her.

Go with Trundle, because I'd feel really uneasy seeing Amumu and Rammus top.. It can be done, but CC doesn't need to be bought by cash, unlike damage.
When life gives you lemons, blame yourself for planting the wrong tree.

Oh and I have success with Kennen vs. her too.

Just abuse that you're a ranged champ and auto her at a distance while poking her with Q.

If you deny hard enough you'll win early laning.

Get's harder when it's your WotA against her Wriggle's though

Pick Olaf and laugh as you kill her 5 times in lane.
And come to realize...its all as it should be.

i know rammus will rape riven 1v1, but why olaf? I haven't played in a while so I don't know if olaf got buffed or not

Yeah Olaf...and Ashe's constant slows

Yeah uh, Olaf is not going to beat Ribbon.
A fallen hero... how regrettable.
Come forth! Let us engage in jolly co-operation.
