Kayle vs. Kassadin - who should win the matchup?

#1wantfastcarsPosted 11/15/2013 10:47:58 AM
Played a game last night, friend went Kassadin mid and just got s*** on by the opposing Kayle (he went 1/5 in lane against her). He's relatively new to Kassadin, so did he just fail hard or is Kayle a counter, or at least as much of a counter as there can be for Kass?

Sounds like your friend actually stayed in lane as Kass, so I'm guessing he's just bad.

Counter or not, dieing numerous times prior to laning ending generally means you got outplayed, whether thats down to a poor game on your part, mistakes, or the opposing player just being better. The last bit a lot of people seem to have a hard time understanding it's concept, that sometimes your opponent is just better than you. It isn't a bad thing, just the nature of competitive games as a whole, otherwise you'd never get "pros" or people who are near the best of the best.

Same with a lot of kassadin matchups.
He loses pre-6, but as long as he isn't feeding then he should be in a good spot after 6.

Then he just roams and gets fed off bot lane

And just after the double kill, Kassadin hears a sound that frustrates his soul:
"Your turret has been destroyed."

Which is countered by them taking bot tower and dragon.

kayle's a moderate counter.

They both have 650 range missiles and can trade hits in that fashion. Kass' has a silence attached to it but hopefully kayle is smart enough to summon up her E prior to this.

Kassadin can't CS well, though. Anytime he goes in kayle will be there with ranged auto's and/or splash to make him suffer. Upon taking that much poke, he won't win any all-ins attempted.

Post 6 is a bit different. He can combo pretty hard and silence means no life-saving ult outta kayle. Unless the kayle is topped off and fed she'll probably die at this point.
