Kind of a noob question but does anyone know why I'm getting owned in a 2v1 lane vs Zyra?

I play mostly Melee champions so that probably doesn't help but is there any strategy i need to use to win our lane against her?

You have to take the fight to her, and be decisive on engages.

Zyra's ability to 2v1 stems from her ability to freeze the lane with plants, ward brushes for safety, and effectively dissuade engages with her snare.

How do you beat that? don't let her freeze, kill her. Engage from 2 directions with gap closes, CC/slow and kill. I suggest champions like Jarvan, Wukong, Pantheon, Rengar, Lee Sin, Irelia, Renekton, etc .. you get the idea.

You need to create a lane that poses the issue of; Either let yourself get zoned, or die.

Think back to things like the JarvanLeona lane in SR, the reason it's successful is because as soon as you got hit by one CC, you were done. That's how you beat Zyra, you need to present a 1-CC-you're-dead ultimatum with your lane composition.

^ this ^

Remember, they made Zyra's hp and movespeed pretty significantly below her competition to give her a weakness to engages.

Also, just a little tip. Do NOT fight her in her plants. Lure her away. Her plants are her real source of power. I can't tell you how many times I have walked away from a 2 man gank on top because they let me use my plants to my advantage. You want to try and bait the seeds. You can spot a bad Zyra by whether or not she places her seeds before she casts a spell on them. A skilled one will lay them as the spell is going off so there is no time to avoid it. If she is laying those seeds, move away from them and try and engage from another angle.

also, when you're capping an altar, leave one guy outside so that the enemy team doesn't get the perfect engage....just general idiocy i see in my elo
