How do you counter a really good Caitlin?

#1Walker_RealPosted 4/25/2013 7:09:11 AM
I went against a Thresh and Caitlin lane that was... just... not... fun.

I was using Draven and I was with Thresh (Yay free week =_=).... We legit couldn't do anything...

She was at 60 cs when I was at 15 it was awful...

Who can outrange or counter her? I also noticed I do poorly against her early as Vayne, even if they are a poor player.

Kog and lategame Trist can outrange her I'm pretty sure. Twitch with ult probably but meh.

You could try MF vs Cait.

He is talking about during laning, which I can safely say is no one. No one can stop Caitlyn during laning, if the person controlling her is really good she can harras you for free whenever she wants and if she has a good support backing her up you're butt******.

I guess Sivir could work, but lategame she's even worse than Caitlyn so yeah.

Without a gank you don't, the best you can do is make it a farm lane and be behind in CS because she'll just push and last hit better while you are being zoned. Just don't feed her and you'll be more useful in teamfights unless they have a strong poke/disengage team where you can't really kill her.

Even with a jungler ganking bot it's hard, best bet is to have an assasin or someone with CC from mid come down to help take her out or dive her. Twisted Fate is a massive mood-killer for her for example because his ult bypasses any wards and traps allowing him to stun her if you go all-in bot.

1. Lane swap top and bot.

2. Use a mega kill lane.

3. Outplay the opponents.

4. Early gank and/or jungle pressure.

5. Use red elixir and all-in at level 2. Pick up golems for a faster early advantage.

Easy solutions.

Last night I was Zed vs. Cait + Thresh and I double killed them (midlane Thresh support roamed down to help, although he sucked and didn't do much except a few autoattacks) at level 2 with a red elixir.

Miss fortune if you are also good. She has the speed to keep out of caits range... You gonna need a really good support though to keep thresh at bay.

My experience with playing MF vs Cait is that while it is not an outright lost lane and at times seems winnable she'll still get away barely alive after every gank/all-in and despite being forced to base and losing on farming time she'll continue to push and out-farm you anyway. Unless her support is really really awful, like support nocturne awful.

Trying to kill her is an exercise in futility while zoning her is impossible as is outfarming her. The only thing you can do focus on farming not feeding her or losing the tower too early. Most of the time any other adc is simply better than her even with 50 cs less as long as she didn't get more kills/assists.
