Lee Sin Strengths & Weaknesses
Strengths

Lee Sin is one of the funniest Junglers in the game. He has an insane pick rate, and basically all players love Lee Sin.

He can singlehandedly win the early game through early ganks. Lee Sin can start ganking from level 3 once he has unlocked his Sonic Wave / Resonating StrikeQ , Safeguard / Iron WillW and Tempest / CrippleE.

Lee has a high skill ceiling which means if you put a lot of effort into him, you will find great success with him.

Weaknesses

If Lee Sin falls behind in the early game, he will struggle in the later parts of the game.

Lee Sin is vulnerable to hard engage and CC. If the enemy has lots of CC, you will need to play around their CC tools if you want to perform any cool manoeuvres with your Ultimate Dragon's RageR.

When ganking your allies, if you miss your Sonic Wave / Resonating StrikeQ , you have nothing to offer and will have to retreat. Make sure you get close to the enemy before using your Sonic Wave / Resonating StrikeQ , or use your Safeguard / Iron WillW before your Sonic Wave / Resonating StrikeQ to get close to the enemy.

Game plan
Early game
0 - 15 min
Lee Sin is Strong

You have a lot of presence during the early game. Gank every opportunity you get, especially on pushed-up enemy targets, to get a lead.

Efficient clearing is necessary to ensure that you can gank frequently. Don't be a miser when it comes to using your abilities as your Energy regenerates quite quickly.

Warding will be an essential part of your playstyle during this phase of the game. The most important thing you want to do is keep a Control Ward in your inventory to use your Ultimate Dragon's RageR efficiently.

Mid game
15 - 25 min
Lee Sin is Strong

Once you get two items, you should be able to dish out a lot of damage depending on which build you're going for. Just make sure that you use your Safeguard / Iron WillW appropriately to avoid CC

Your main goal during fights will be to get to the highest priority enemy target and then displace them to your team with your Ultimate Dragon's RageR. Playing around vision will be really important to achieve this goal.

Try to look for picks around the map. Your kit allows you to duel them easily and escape if a fight goes awry. Try to catch the enemy ADC in a side lane or the enemy Support while they are warding.

Late game
25+ min
Lee Sin is Weak

Your objectives are to secure picks and peel for your squishy targets during this phase of the game. Your Ultimate Dragon's RageR will come in very handy and allow you to make a lot of plays.

If the enemy team is loaded with heavy CC, make sure you get a defensive item to help yourself out. You still need to remember that you hold the Smite for your team.

Securing objectives is very important, especially during this phase of the game, as these objectives can be the game decider. Your Sonic Wave / Resonating StrikeQ should allow you to make some really fancy plays. You should try to get the enemy Jungler out of the pit by using your Ultimate Dragon's RageR.

Power Spikes
Early game0 - 15 min

You are already powerful during this phase of the game. Still, a significant spike is when you get access to all your abilities. It will let you pull off a lot of successful ganks.

Another spike is when you get your first item component. It will increase your damage output and your mobility, provided you already got boots.

Once you get your Ultimate Dragon's RageR, your ganks will pack a lot of punch. Just make sure that your positioning is alright before using that ability.

Mid game15 - 25 min

Once you get your core items, you should be able to take over the game easily. Keep ganking the pushed-up enemy laners and look for picks.

Your mobility is a huge boon for you. It can allow you to participate in almost any fight/counter-gank and will let you destroy the enemy or save your allies, depending on the situation.

Your objective clearing is quite powerful, so ensure that you take the neutral objectives as soon as they spawn. Proper warding will be necessary to make sure that you can sneak the objectives in time.

Late game25+ min

You fall off by quite a bit during this phase of the game, but you can still duel the squishy enemy champions. Try to get as many picks as you can and try to avoid full 5 v 5 fights.

Making fights unfair is going to be an excellent strategy for you during this phase. Getting rid of the enemy Support early on will help you with vision while getting rid of the enemy Mid/ADC will give your team a significant damage advantage. Work with your Support to achieve this feat.

A small power spike will be when you get your defensive item. It will preserve your survivability and will let you make riskier plays against CC heavy comps.
