there is no true counter for any champion, it comes down to skill and a little luck, i trashed a darius as rumble and ive been trashed by darius as rumble, ive outplayed darius, ive been outplayed, the trick to winning any lane is to know what your opponent can do, and know what you can do to stop it

for example, when laning vs a leblank, you down want to 'win lane' you want to stay under turrent, stay safe, if she tries to jump you to do the famus leblank poke and run, stun / silecne/ CC her in some way, or dodge her poke, you can force her to eat turrent if you have a decent stun / silence / root

as anivia, the moment she dives at you, throw your Q where she is either going to be when she finishes jumping in (if your fast enough) or where she will return to, and return poke, chances are if your doign this right, you will stun her still in turrent range, and you poke will go farther than hers did because of tower, even tho you are unable to continie because of her silence

leblank is a 1v1 champ, take away her feed and she fails later game

every champion can be countered, some champiosn are better at it than others depending on who they are facing, like morgana makes a great counter to most mids, but if you can bate her sheild with a low damage spell, wait till it falls of then go in for a real poke because it has a long CD

skill + a little luck > champion counter options

but some champiosn are better at countering certain champiosn than others, so if you are having trouble with achampion, learn what champions best counter that champion (like darius is had countered by a good kayle, makign kayle a decent counter even without the true skill) and once you get it down, you can learn to better counter him, then do it even with less optimal counters like teemo vs darius

I have had great success beating Darius with Garen and that hasnt changed yet. Garens passive is very god at disrupting Darius, he is naturally tanky, has a health regen passive to allow him to lane longer and repair damage from Darius's hemorrhage, and has an ult to match Darius's. Besides that, Champions with some range abilities such as Pantheon and even Olaf are good as like Garen, he struggles against champions who can poke him but be sure to do it continuously.

Jayce, Nidalee, Elise, Vladamir they all destoy him if you play correctly. Like, if you get pulled its your fault , and if you dont you win HARD and for the most part have just as much teamfight presence if you use there full kits. (also on the nidalee im talking about more of a tank build with mogs/sunfire/gauntlet etc.).

Renekton is decent vs. Darius. His ult can counter his ult, which leads to good baits/kills.

I play Nidalee top a lot. And I can say that unless you play to loose and fast early game, Darius can't touch her. And once you hit 6, even less so. Bait the grab and maybe another ability, then lay it to him a bit. Rinse repeat and he's down, you this prevents him from stacking bleeds and keeps his ult from being too nasty.

But Darius's problem isn't early game though, his problem is once he starts building and clean up team fights. Your job top should be to farm and harass to keep him from farming. Keep your distance once he hits 6 because his ult will help him burst you down early.

Darius punishes unorganized teams, best way to beat Darius is to keep your game tight.

Vlad, Teemo, Olaf, and Nidalee do ridiculously well against him.
