Kai'Sa Strengths & Weaknesses
Strengths

Very versatile when it comes to builds and team comps. She can be both a tank destroyer, as well as a decimator of squishier champions depending on which build she opts for.

She is very strong when fighting in a 1 v 1 with no minions around. This is because her Icathian RainQ can all target the same champion and do a lot of damage in a short time.

Her SuperchargeE and Ultimate Killer InstinctR allows her to be independent in the lane, while her Support roams around to get some kills or assists. Her Ultimate Killer InstinctR can be used as a way to catch up and finish opponents as well, especially after they Flash or dash away from her.

Weaknesses

Extremely vulnerable when her SuperchargeE is down as she can be an easy target to CC at that point. If she uses that ability carelessly, she will die a lot of times in the lane, as well as during team fights.

Improper positioning or aggressive usage of her Ultimate Killer InstinctR can get her killed on multiple occasions. This can allow the enemy team to bait her in and get rid of her pretty quickly.

If she is set back during the early game, she won’t be able to come online as fast as her counterparts. As she is extremely item reliant, she will need to be peeled for as well.

Game plan
Early game
0 - 15 min
Kai'Sa is Weak

Play safe for the first few levels. You need time to come online and you shouldn’t be fighting unless you have a clear early advantage (like an engage Support).

Once you have a few levels under your belt, you can start to look for aggressive plays. You benefit from extended trades, so try to go for them frequently.

After destroying the bottom lane tower, rotate to the mid lane and try to take that tower. This will open up the map and give your team a gold lead.

Mid game
15 - 25 min
Kai'Sa is Average

Stay with your Support throughout the mid-game. If you move away from them, you will be an easy target for the enemy. Make sure you’re always near at least 1 ally.

Group and stay with your team at all times. Do not split push or avoid grouping unless you have a good reason to be away from them.

Look for picks with your Support/Jungler to get kills and increase your lead. If you kill a key target, you could make the call for Baron.

Late game
25+ min
Kai'Sa is Strong

It is important that you stick with your team in the late game. Do not move around the map or go anywhere unless someone is with you.

Stand towards the back end of your team near your Support. Avoid walking too far away from anyone in the late game. Getting caught out will result in the enemy being able to push their advantage and finish the game.

Watch your positioning in the late game. Focus on kiting and auto-attacking the nearest enemy champion. Avoid walking too far forward so you do not get caught out and focused by the enemy.

Power Spikes
Early game0 - 15 min

Level 6 is a valuable power spike, especially when initiating team fights for Kalista's team. This ability gives Kalista's Support to play more aggressively in the lane as they have a free ticket out of nasty situations.

The first item component will only add to Kalista's overall dueling and skirmishing potential. It will let her dominate the lane provided that she properly uses her Passive.

Multiple points in her RendE will make her powerful in two departments. She will be able to run down enemies with ease. She will also be able to take neutral objectives reliably.

Mid game15 - 25 min

At level nine, her Icathian RainQ will be completely maxed out and deal a lot of damage to her enemies. This will let her take over the game with ease.

Depending on which build she is going for, she will be getting her first ability upgrade during this stage of the game. This will be a massive power spike and will let her be the prime carry for her team.

Kai'sa is really good in fights due to her SuperchargeE and Icathian RainQ. She can peel for herself and use her Ultimate Killer InstinctR for both aggressive and defensive purposes.

Late game25+ min

Once Kai'Sa gets three points in her Ultimate Killer InstinctR, she will have a massive shield and can reposition instantly if things go awry during fights.

She will have many upgraded abilities during this phase of the game. This means that her damage output, as well as her defensive ability, will be really high.

At level 13, she will have two abilities wholly maxed out. This means her damage output with her Icathian RainQ, and her peel potential with her SuperchargeE will be massive.
