Olaf Strengths & Weaknesses
Strengths

Olaf’s Ultimate RagnarokR allows him to dodge CC as it prevents him from being locked down by hard crowd control.

Olaf’s 1v1 potential is extremely strong. This makes him a formidable opponent in the 1v1 and makes him hard to play against. Look to play aggressive and fight the enemy whenever possible.

You have the ability to take the Dragon or Rift Herald alone whenever your allies have priority nearby. Look to secure them whenever you can.

Weaknesses

Olaf is rather weak when his Ultimate RagnarokR is down. He is quite immobile and prone to layered CC. This makes him pretty vulnerable post 6.

If you miss your Axe UndertowQ , your ganks will most likely fail. You need to get as close to the enemy as possible in order for you to increase your chances of landing them.

He will struggle against ranged champions with dashes as they will be able to kite him and dodge his Axes UndertowQ .

Game plan
Early game
0 - 15 min
Olaf is Strong

Your goal in the early game is to gank as often as possible to get your allies ahead. You are a strong early game Jungler, so make sure you try to exploit your early advantage.

Look to secure objectives as often as possible. This will give your team an advantage as the game goes along.

Find a healthy balance between ganking your allies, farming your jungle and securing objectives. Make sure you do not fall behind in XP by trying to constantly gank.

Mid game
15 - 25 min
Olaf is Strong

Continue to pick up and secure jungle camps whenever possible. Not falling behind in the mid-game is crucial as a Jungler, so make sure you continue to farm!

When no team fights are occurring, go to a side lane and push. It’s important that you continue to farm during the mid-game so you can get your items as quickly as possible.

After getting a kill, make the call for Baron or Dragon if your team is nearby and able to help you. Securing these objectives as a Jungler is crucial is in the mid-game.

Late game
25+ min
Olaf is Weak

Look to take down the enemy carries. Focus the backline and try to take them out of the fight. Focus them with your other frontline champions.

As you’re the Jungler, you need to make sure you’re always alive in the late game. If you die before a major objective spawns, the enemy will be able to take it.

Make sure you are always on the side of the map that the next major objective is on. If the Baron is up, always stay on the top side. If you go bot and show yourself, the enemy will take the objective for free.

Power Spikes
Early game0 - 15 min

His objective control is quite potent as his Passive allows him to take them down very quickly. He should always try to secure an objective if he can free up a lane after ganking them.

Level 6 is a massive power spike for Olaf as he can now reach his target without being interrupted. If he manages to flank his enemies, the immobile carriers will be pretty much doomed.

His first item component will be a massive spike, increasing his overall damage in the game. It will bolster his overall damage potential.

Mid game15 - 25 min

The second point in his Ultimate RagnarokR will give him another spike. He can run down enemies frequently now as the cooldown of the ability will be reduced.

Olaf will have his core items during this phase of the game. It will increase his damage and survivability in the game, which will make him really good during the mid-game.

His overall damage will be really high during this phase of the game. His tankiness and his Passive will make sure that he kills enemies with ease, especially those caught out of position.

Late game25+ min

Olaf is excellent during the late game, as his tankiness will be phenomenal now. Combined with his overall damage, it will become tough to deal with him for the enemy team.

The final point in his Ultimate RagnarokR will grant him a massive spike, and he will be able to dish out tons of damage to the enemy. Since the ability will be up frequently, he will be able to pick off targets easily.

Olaf will have multiple abilities maxed out during this phase of the game. The amount of damage that he can deal now will be really high and will most likely catch the enemy off-guard.
