Riven counters nasus....?

#1DeathWyvernPosted 8/13/2013 7:56:33 PM
I used to consider myself a pretty good riven. She is one of my favorite top laners. I had last pick as too in ranked against a nasus just now and went with riven. He absolutely dominated the lane. If I went in to pressure him early I pushed the lane from q and w. I couldn't hardly escape from wither, and if I did beat him down like I said I pushed the lane with AoE and he just siphoned all his life back on the tower. How the hell does she counter him exactly?

Use your mobility to get out of Spirit Fire. Wither shouldn't really bother you because Riven doesn't need ASPD and she has multiple dashes.

People underrate the hell out of Nasus top. If he doesn't get spam ganked, he's going to get stupid. So hard to push him out of lane after a certain point.

there's nobody that really counters nasus. He just doesn't have any "lol i autowin" matchups.

I don't think Nasus wins many lanes, and he definitely loses to Riven.

If you didn't push your level 1-6 advantage, you deserve to lose the game. Nasus' greatest strength is his late game dominance and infinite scaling. His early game is complete trash, and Riven's level 1-3 is among the strongest in the game.

the "lol i autowin" thing was from nasus' point of view.

Nowadays you pick champions that scale well like singed or champions that can harass him under turret and can push fast like kayle.

The goal is pretty much to force him to use spirit fire to cs to not lose towering towering or to drain him of mana. Killing him 1v is pretty tough now with his consistent buffs.

only people who are remotely close are champs like poppy, irelia, champs who need just as much farm in order to be relevant, since it just becomes a farm lane

Nasus automatically beats everybody that doesn't beat him.
