Good Solo Top Counter?

2. What is a good counter to a solo top teemo

Teemo, Vlad, and Swain typically do well vs Melee Bruisers.. but it varies from champ to champ.

Vlad and Kennen beat most solo top AD bruisers with ease, as does Teemo.

Teemo is weak against anyone with ranged targeted spells like Vlad or Ryze. Mordekaiser also does well against Teemo. AP Sion will usually smash a Teemo top if he gets bush control.

Long made fun of for being weak, it turns out she utterly wrecks the solo top when build purely for AD. I've been maining her for a while now, and the only one I ever found myself struggling against is Lee Sin (because of his dashes, and high early damage).

With her e, she is ranged, and can poke excellently. As soon as the enemy starts retreating, slow them with your w, and hit them from a distance with your e. Completely safe towerdives starting with level 6 thanks to her ult.

A special mention goes to Darius, whom she counters laughably easy, especially in team fights. As soon as he goes in for his ult, use your ult on his victim, thereby preventing the cooldown-refresh.

As for Teemo...he is just a pain to play against. Try Kennen, maybe.

Question for the kayle player, I like Kayle a lot and have been moving to playing her, but what about riven in a match up? I feel like her early game would be brutal especially if she goes brutalizer first and has low cooldown on her dash stun.

any one who has gap closers can hurt Kayle. A smart Kayle can get around it but in the case of Riven and Lee Sin she loses hands down. Both have strong early games and can close gaps like no problem. Even if she gets to her 6 it wouldn't matter they can tower dive easily and just poop on her.

Strong counter to bruisers are champions with ranged harass.

This means: Vlad, teemo, rumble, morde, kayle, cho'gath, kennen.

Who counters teemo? Champions with ability based damage and preferably sustain to out last teemo poison. Teemo blind cripples aa champions but doesn't do anything to abilities. Again, vlad comes to mind in this regard.
