Does siv counter Cait or does Cait counter Siv?

Championselect says that Sivir counters cait, how-ever I have found that I always lose against a Cait when playing ADC.

Simple reason being is that her auto attack range is longer than Sivirs. So with good zoning from the support say Leona, I am constantly denied any kind of farm.

Yet just because Sivir's E blocks Cait's ult that doesnt make her a counter. Based on that logic Sivir counters just about everyone.

Sivir counters 1 skill at choice, while regaining mana.
You can spellshield her Q while she tries to harass to regain mana, you can spellshield her trap in the brush for easy mana.

However like you said Cait has nice AA range...

Though >_> Im not scared of both as I tend to find Graves / Draven a lot scarier.

Stand back and Q farm. Scale better into late game.

Stop saying a champ counters another champ.

That's not true.

Siv's advantage is that yordle snap traps, the Q shot and her ult can ALL be blocked by her spell shield.

All of these moves are explicitly played out, I can always activate Nocturne's shield before a Cait Q hits me. It's the fact that Cait's moves have obvious indicators.

Siv will have a bigger burst, Cait will have better sustained damage. It all boils down to play style and who outplays who.

Also spell shielding and walking into the bush is smart to take out yordles

Sivir can spellshield and walk into Cait's W's for mana as well.

If Sivir has a good initiating support then Cait will die in a duel. Sivir has dat burst.
