Malphite counter tips
Laning Against Malphite
The shield from Malphites Passive offers more security in lane. Try to poke and harass him as often as possible so he is unable to get the shield and protect himself.
At level 6, Malphite’s kill pressure in lane can be obnoxious. Try and keep him low so it is risky for him to engage. If you have any movement abilities that can be used to dodge, do not use them unless his Ultimate R is on cooldown.
When playing as a ranged Mid laner, try to use your range advantage to bully him down and force him to back. You can also use your range advantage to harass him every time he moves forward to last hit.
Strategy VS Malphite
Avoid grouping tightly together as it will give Malphite a great opportunity to land a 5 person knock up with his Ultimate R.
Do not look for fights in the jungle or around the Dragon or Baron. This is because teams will generally be grouped closely together- which allows him to get a good Ultimate R off. Instead, try to fight in the open in a lane.
Poke and disengage are Malphites biggest threats. If you can, try to poke him down as much as possible before a team fight occurs to make it near impossible for him to engage without dying. Keeping him low will force him to recall.
Malphite Power Spikes
Malphite is at his weakest in the early game. Try to set him behind to delay his next power spike.
Once Malphite is level 6 and has his Ultimate R, his kill threat in lane increases and he can start being more aggressive.
Team fights are where Malphite really shines as his Ultimate R is an AOE ability and can knock up multiple people.
