Get Kassadin.

Wouldn't Garen or Rammus be able to get Kass? They move pretty fast, tank well, and provide good cc. Couldn't Riot just bug his Riftwalk not to go through Dominion walls if that's too much of an issue?

1) Question your teammate's choice whenever he homes in on Kassadin
2) Report all Kassadins.

In-game solutions? Hope that he sucks and goes 4/18. Not much else you can do. http://lolmatches.com/match/na682516668

There aint much we can do with blind pick being the most popular mode. But I've always been good at chasing down kass's with lee sin - so just about every other game now, i'm starting to pick lee sin to scare kass's away..

also may be another reason why we see so many nids and teemos now.. because those champs punish roaming kasses, making them less effective while trying to gank.

Old sweeper that applied vision eyes on skills in the inventory of Akali USED to be my preferred method. Twin Shadows can work if you're adamant about getting to him. Akali's dash range is longer than Kassadin's (with vision eyes you can dash over the walls he jumps) and with some AP and pen you can usually get him by the 3rd dash. Buuut they nerfed the stats on that item for APs and made it more of a support item :\.

Watch him and wait for him to make a mistake. never blow any cc on him unless hes just used his ult. Watch for him to waste an ult or use it badly and catch him out of position.
aka, hope for a bad player.

Practically? AD Assasins have the best chance of murdering him if they get the drop on him during rift cooldown. It won't help you much against a competent Kassadin, but if you are something like Zed or Talon, you hang back until Kassadin burns riftwalk and attempt to kill him. So, Talon, Zed, Xin Zhao, Rengar, Vi, etc. all have fairly high AD burst. You can also get away with turning some other AD champions like Gankplank into AD bursters with Divine Sword.

If you don't smell an upcoming teamfight, get ready to counter-gank bot.

You can theoretically do the same with AP assassins, but AP assassins will get outscaled by Kassadin's defenses nor can they still finish him if he happens to silence them. And if they fail to burst him, they just gave him max attack speed, which he will promptly use to cut your face off with W.

if it's solo q good luck. i found me and a friend will lock 2 champs with stuns and try to chain stun him and burn him before he can riftwalk. it's a good way to shut him down until late game status. late game u aren't stopping him imo.

Xin Zhao with a bunch of CDR works quite well. Just got to use your charge and knock up at the right times.

CC that implies stuns, silence or fear (that has plenty of seconds)

knockups are quite useful too, but they need backups too (Garen and blitz are a great pair to deal with tryhard kass)

-Garen
-Cho' gath
-Fiddelsticks (With backup)
-Talon
-pantheon, olaf, wukong, xin zhao (Great damage dealers, just to make kass run away like a little girl)
