Riven top as Vayne

#1Rookie_JetPosted 2/13/2013 3:33:20 PM
Riv's team raged at her for losing top. Riv said she got counter picked (I was actually just trying to counter their Xin I thought would be top). I thought I would have trouble against Rive because of her multiple gap closers as opposed to Xin who I could condemn and tumble from every time and call it a day.

I actually did have a lot of trouble with her, but I got 1 good gank level 5 that resulted in a kill (it was pretty even before that, slightly in Riv's favor) and a gank after that that took her health low enough to make her very cautious. The rest of laning was in my favor. Their Xin wasted a lot of time camping me, but I had river and tri warded and acted as oblivious as possible to his presence (but still safe).


TL;DR What do you think GFAQs? Vayne counters Riven top?

That Riven was terrible. Riven should crush Vayne

Why would you choose Vayne to counter Xin?

Xin, I think, would be very easy to manage as Vayne. Nice, ranged harass and Xin's only gap closer is completely negated by Vayne's condemn. There's no way Xin would ever get off 2, let alone 3 AAs after an audacious charge before I E and tumble away. If Xin wants to Q, AA minions twice, then I know he's coming for me, so I can just stay b until his last Q proc wears off.

In my head, this is a very easy lane barring jungle influence, but feel free to disagree.
