Mordekaiser counter tips
Laning Against Mordekaiser
Mordekaiser has a healthy clear but slow clear in the early game. Try and invade him to steal away his camps to delay his first power spike.
Luckily, Mordekaiser has rather scripted ganks. Place vision around his jungle entrances to spot him leave his jungle. If you’re nearby, you could try to counter gank; but at the very least ping his position.
Once Mordekaiser hits level 6, he will find it slightly easier to gank with his Ultimate R. Try to equal his pressure by ganking as much as you can in the early game, and whenever he shows up on one side of the map, try to gank another lane or take an objective.
Strategy VS Mordekaiser
Ward your flanks as Mordekaiser may try to attack from the side in order to get on a high valued target with his Ultimate R.
If Mordekaiser misses his E in a team fight, it wouldn’t be a bad time to focus him down as he will be unable to pull your team in when his E is on cooldown.
Avoid starting major objectives like the Baron or a Dragon when Mordekaiser is nearby as he can take your Jungler into the Shadow Realm with his R which will make taking the objective risky.
Mordekaiser Power Spikes
At level 6, Mordekaiser’s kill pressure increases. Whenever his Ultimate R is up, you need to play more respectfully.
Mordekaiser has a strong all-in potential as soon as he hits level 3, but before that he can be poked out of the lane. Abuse him as much as possible before he hits level 3.
Team fights are where Mordekaiser can shine. If you’re a carry champion, make sure you invest in a QSS so you can get out of his Ultimate R.
