Fiddlesticks counter tips
Laning Against Fiddlesticks
Do not push the lane without having the lane bushes warded in the bottom lane. You never know, Fiddle could be hiding in there and ready to pounce.
Fiddlesticks is rather immobile and generally pushes the wave. Try to request ganks from your Jungler and then go in just before they arrive for the maximum chance of killing him.
Try and bait out his Q before fully committing to an engage otherwise he will interrupt the exchange. One way you can do this is by walking forward and falsely baiting an engage. Whenever he uses his Q, abuse the cooldown.
Strategy VS Fiddlesticks
When sieging an objective, make sure you ward around the objective in question to catch out Fiddlesticks before he engages with his R. Deny his surprise engages by warding around your team.
Fiddlesticks will usually go to ward alone during the mid-game. Try to set up an ambush in a bush and tackle him when he goes to place or deny vision around objectives like the Baron or Dragon.
Do not group to closely together when dancing with the enemy. As Fiddlesticks can bounce between players, avoid grouping to closely so it is unable to hit or burst multiple people down.
Fiddlesticks Power Spikes
Once Fiddlesticks has his Zhonya’s Hourglass, it allows his R to really hit home. If he channels his R and uses his Zhonya’s, you can’t attack him when he goes into stasis.
When Fiddlesticks gets access to 3 abilities, he is really difficult to deal with because they offer him so much utility. If you’re trying to go for an all in, make sure to fight when 1 ability is missing.
Of course, Fiddlesticks biggest power spike is his level 6. You can counter it by having constant wards around your lane. If he goes missing post 6, ping your teammates.
