general guide on how to counter Poppy
Poppy Laning Against
If you meet Poppy when going through the river or if she invades your jungle, watch your positioning and avoid being close to a wall so she is unable to pin you against it with her E.
Do not do any objectives if Poppy is nearby as she can knock you away with her Ultimate R and potentially steal the objective.
Poppy has quite a healthy clear, so it might be difficult for you to invade her in the early game. Keep this in mind if you intend to invade or try to fight her early on.
Poppy Strategy VS
Avoid fighting around objectives as Poppy may use her Ultimate R to knock away the Jungler and cost your team the Baron/ Dragon.
In team fights, disengage and avoid team fighting in the jungle as it will allow Poppy to get a good knockup with her Ultimate R or pick off a key target with her E.
Fighting around Poppy’s Ultimate R is a good way of winning team fights. She will knock back the frontline and then engage on to the carries while the frontline is missing. Try to dodge her Ultimate R, or use CC abilities on her so her channel is interrupted.
Poppy Power Spikes
The longer the game goes, the tankier Poppy will become. Try and reduce her gold income by stealing away her camps during the early game. This will also delay some of her other power spikes.
Depending on her build path, Poppy’s power spikes will change as her AD build and tank build have different power spikes.
Once Poppy hits level 6 and unlocks her Ultimate R, she will have a lot more utility and be able able to disengage from a skirmish.
