How to Beat Singed

#1TheConductorSixPosted 9/23/2011 11:16:29 PM
This advice is for ranked games. Normal Queue just doesn't allow for preparation. I've played over 50 ranked games with Singed and I he's extremely strong but has ONE MAJOR WEAKNESS which I will get to. First off, Garen and Akali hard counter Singed. Garen especially. He can silence Singed and has the speed to run next to him and avoid poison. His ult also laughs at Singed. Akali can dodge the Fling and poke Singed to death and also out sustain with spell vamp. Now, here's how to take advantage of Singed's playstyle: YOU MUST INITIATE ON SINGED'S TEAM. If you let Singed initiate he forces you into bad decisions. You either blow everything on him or watch as he causes chaos. If YOU initiate on HIS team you force him to blow his slow and fling on keeping you off his carry. You force him to be an actual tank. Try and next time you face Singed and let me know how it goes.

Make sure he doesn't initiate is a good point.

BAN HIM. That's the point of the function, hard counter a champ without even having to think.

How exactly silencing a toggle skill is hard counter? or am I missing something.

Garen builds movespeed and his justice is a AoE (that also gets rid of movespeed debuffs). He doesn't need to follow behind him because he can actually run ahead, or better yet, beside him. This makes his poison less harmful unless the Garen turns into it, and it makes Fling less useful since it'll just throw Garen beside him rather than behind.

Garen won't prevent Singed from free farming past a certain point.

I don't think anyone will keep ever keep Singed from Free Farming.

Then you failed to counter him. Singed needs nothing but farm.

In my experience, a good Singed will zig-zag in front of and around his team so you can never initiate without hitting the poison trail. This automatically puts the other team at a disadvantage. His team can easily push a tower this way because there's nothing you can do except walk through the poison trail or run away.

If you do manage to catch them off guard he still has some of the best peels in the game, and he will counter any initiation with his fling and massive AOE slow.
