why does riven counter vi?

#1ffxblak12Posted 3/12/2013 8:49:33 PM
according to all the counter websites?

the counter websites don't know s*** they're made by players who got stomped on in their last game. If you want to know who actually counters someone watch pro streams or play against them.

I would guess it's due to them both being close range melee fighters that require constant hits to do extra damage, but in Vi's sense she has a single gap closer so Riven would be able to win any trade by Valor'ing her punch, stunning and then Walking/q'ing away. Plus she's an awesome duelist so there's that.

I haven't played or watch the match up

but

I'd imagine it goes like:

Riven uses Q to trade, Quinn either uses Q to back up or fights with E, Riven uses W/E and walks away with more damage traded.

Riven has a better dueling kit overall in this match up.

Quinn has to land Q - and Riven can dodge that with 1Q and E NP. Then riven can reQQ onto her Auto Stun auto walk back and be up in the trade without taking damage from E.

But I'm just theory crafting.

That is kinda what I was talking about... Since Quinn's E gapcloses and doesn't leap and has nothing to do with Q at all..

Riven would win versus a Quinn that used E anyway.

Did you read my original post at all?

Or are you just jumping into a conversation with zero context?
