Counters for common top picks

#1CascaydePosted 11/18/2012 9:37:09 AM
Just started learning top and I tend to see a lot of Wukong, Jax, Irelia and the occasional Rumble. Are there any hard counters to any of these champs that I could get or is it just a matter of laning against them in a specific way?

Jax and Irelia are hard countered by Malphite. They scale hard on AS, and he just shuts that down with 1 ability. Wukong lacks sustain, so anyone who can outpoke him will win. Rumble will just beat you because he's broken and no one seems to notice that.

Jax, Rumble, Malphite, Yorick and Swain are good counters for common solo tops.

Jax can be beaten by Darius(in my experience at least) and by Rumble.
Lots of tops beat Irelia top, Jax, Xin, Udyr(I think...).
Dunno who counters Rumble.
Y'know what? Katarina is my waifu <3

Yorick, while he might not win the lane unless his opponent is derping, won't lose it either and will make it a farmfest (unless he's up against Nasus, whom hard counters him).

And of course, Teemo counters a lot of common top lanes.
Actually, since Wedge Antilles > Carriers, and Carriers = Instant win, then it should be Wedge Antilles > Instant win. He's just that good XD -PsionicDude

I've had more success with Vlad top than even Jayce.
That was an oval! It has to be a circle!
