Xin v. Riven

Is Xin supposed to stomp on Riven top?
Because last game I was in I got absolutely destroyed. He would jump to me, knock me up, and I was dead by the time I hit the floor. Every. Time.

Of course, it's possible I'm just a bad Riven; I don't have a whole lot of practice in with her.

Xin v. Riven


Out of those two I think that Riven is hotter but that's just me

He would have to get three hits in to knock you up by which you should have stunned him, what are you doing during this time? jerking off? it's ok if you are because I do it all the time.

I am trying to run during this time. I pop my W and E, but he can catch up with no problem.

You're doing something wrong, then. One of Xin's early weaknesses is not being able to land his last Q because generally people are able to outrun him. They usually then turn around and combo him after his Q wears off. Considering you also have a dash, you're doing something seriously wrong.

Yeah, like I said, I'm not the best Riven.
It just seems like my dash hardly moves me. At all. Ever.

You have to trade back. Xin can't do s*** to you after you escape his combo with Q and/or E, so abuse him during that time.

mostly a skill matchup until lvl 6 once riven gets her ult, but a well played xin can find ways around it. hard to say. they're both super dmg powerhouses levels 1-2 so it can go either way. you should be able to kite xin around but doing it loses a lot of dmg on your q from having to hop away from his three talon strike.

Stunning won't help you, his Q outlasts your stun. Xin is probably the strongest pre-6 top their is. All you can do is sit back and play passive until level 6, build health (phage first is usually good), and then go in with your ult up and hope you survive his burst.
