How does one lane against Irelia?

#1Frost_shock_FTWPosted 11/20/2012 9:05:41 PM
Or really any bruiser with a gap closer and sustain, but especially Irelia. I just can't do it.

I lose hard as Cho.
I lose a little less hard as Jayce, but can't stop them from farming.
I lose hard as Darius.
I can hold as Vlad most of the time, but again they have free farm/roam.

I think I'm too passive. If Irelia charges in I want to run away and she gets free hits. If I stay and try to trade, I'll lose more health or die.

You nerf the hell out of her.

Violence is never the answer.
Because the answer is always Vlad.

Yorick gives her nightmares (well he gives anyone nightmares up top anyway). Teemo can blind her and keep his distance and kite her to death. Also getting some Health and Mana Potions will really help Teemo win. You be amazed how much 3 Health and 3 Mana Potions will give Teemo control of a lane.

In CoD you USE Killstreaks, In BF you ARE the Killstreak

Also Tryndamere can beat her due to his sustain, free exhaust, chase and escape and his BS god mode.

One does not simply kite a bruiser with a blinkstrike and stun/slow.

I usually use Darius and pressure her HARD early. Voli has worked well too

this guy is clearly not level 30, or hasn't played the game in the past year

Sounds like you're just inexperienced, Jayce beats her so easily early on, it's just that she can snowball harder if fed. Cho can work as well but you'd have to play a non-AP style if you want to stand a chance.

These 2 champs are just an instant win against any Irelia I've ever played.

Irelia vs Jayce seems to be a very even match to me, btw, almost slightly favoring jayce. Jayce farms better, and with the proper runes can keep irelia from her AA sustain
