Kog'Maw counter tips
Laning Against Kog'Maw
Kog’Maw is rather squishy in the early game. Try to abuse his weakness and look for fights to set him behind.
Post-6, Kog’Maw will deal lots of damage in a trade thanks to his W and his Ultimate R. Try to bait out his W before committing to the all-in.
Note that Kog’maw will be trying to constantly poke you from afar in lane to get you low. Look into buying an early pair of Boots to make dodging his abilities easier.
Strategy VS Kog'Maw
Avoid sieging objectives like the Baron or Dragon in the mid-game if Kog’Maw is alive and nearby. He can easily poke you down and force you off the objective and this will result in you either dying or wasting a lot of time.
In team fights, try to lock Kog’Maw down as quickly as you can. This will reduce his ability to deal lots of damage with his W and auto-attacks.
Positioning is key for Kog’Maw. If he mispositions or walks too far forward to harass and poke with his R, make sure you capitalize on it and take him down.
Kog'Maw Power Spikes
Kog’Maw is weak in the early game. You can abuse this to get an early lead or blow his Summoner Spells.
At level 6, Kog’Maw will have an easier time poking and trading thanks to his Ultimate R. Take care when trading with him, and try not to let him burst you down.
Kog’Maw benefits from extended trades once he has a few points in his W. Do not go for extended trades with him unless you have an advantage.
