Samira has an incredibly strong all-in. This will allow her to go for kills frequently, especially when the enemy overextends or walks too far forward.
Her Ultimate R is an incredibly strong tool in team fights. Avoid fighting unless you have your Ultimate R available as it deals tons of damage.
Samira’s utility and ability to dash allows her to escape sticky situations makes her an incredibly strong and mobile champion.
Samira struggles to team fight if her team doesn’t have follow up engage. Once she goes in, the enemy will just focus her if she is alone.
Relies heavily on items in the mid-game. If she is behind, she is going to struggle to dish out a lot of damage.
Is vulnerable to all-ins and damage when her E and W are both down. She will not be able to block incoming damage or dodge/ get away from them.

Play safe for the first few levels. You need time to come online and you shouldn’t be fighting unless you have a clear early advantage.
Once you have a few levels under your belt, you can start to play aggressive and look for aggressive plays. However, you will rely on your Support to do the heavy lifting early on.
After destroying the bottom lane tower, rotate to the mid lane and try to take that tower. This will open up the map and give your team a gold lead.
15 - 25 min
Try and stick with your Support throughout the mid-game. You’re quite vulnerable and easy to kill if you’re on your own. By staying with your Support, your survivability will increase.
Continue picking up farm in the side lanes when no team fights are occurring, but spend as little time away from your team. You need gold and XP to buy items and if you fall behind, it will be unlikely that you’ll be able to dish out damage in fights.
Look for picks with your Support/Jungler to get kills and increase your lead. If you kill a key target, you could make the call for Baron.
Just like in the mid-game, you should stick with your Support throughout the later parts of the game. Do not go around the map alone as you will die easily.
Do not play super aggressive in team fights. Just kite and auto-attack the nearest enemy champion. If you walk too far forward, the enemy will focus you and take you down.
Continue to kite in team fights and consistently adapt your positioning. Avoid standing still in fights as you’ll be an easy target.
Samira's early game is pretty strong. She can poke enemies down with her Q while being extraordinarily mobile and dodging crucial skillshots with her W. It will be tough to catch her.
Level six is a tremendous power spike as it allows Samira to impact and disrupt fights massively. It is also a decent finishing move, especially in clumped fights.
Her first item component will increase her dueling potential significantly. Her ability to dish out damage in the lane will also skyrocket.
Once she has 2 points in her Ultimate R, she will easily be able to take over team fights and disrupt them as well. Her positioning will be the defining factor from now.
Samira is excellent in mid-game fights as she can overrun the enemies down if she gets her S-rank. That, combined with her mobility and life-steal, will prevent her from dying.
Her first ability will be maxed out at level 9. This will significantly boost her damage and will let her one-shot squishies.
Three points in her Ultimate R will give her a huge power spike. The ability will dish out a lot of damage and heal Samira heavily, so team fights will be optimal.
Her life steal combined with her damage and mobility during the late game will make her really good in team fights. She will just need to maintain proper positioning and use her W properly.
She will have multiple items during this phase of the game. It will allow her to dish out tons of damage. Prolonged team fights will see her winning effortlessly.
