Hi souul.

Well Singed it's a pain when he is on the enemy team, but he needs some farm to become scary, if he manages to get Rod of Ages + Force of Nature or another deffensive item, well your carry is in a difficult position, when teambattles start he is gonna charge for him with high MS/HP/ARmor or MagicRes Flings for an easy kill. The initiation pattern of Singed reminds me a lot of Rammus.

The playstyle of singed is to run and run more, is the only champion in the game that played properly, he just runs in circles flingin and slowing everyone. His poison trail makes him almost unchasable (tip: don't chase a singed, you are gonna end dead)

Your best shot is to try to kill the important enemies (AD/AP carries and ignore him or CC him while you try to take down key targets)

As for counters, you requiere at least one competent tank that can sustain the initial burst (Well, this is advisable for any team comp and against anything)

If you are taking too much damage from Singed, try to build MR.

If you a carry, Banshee's Veil is your best option (You can negate the fling)
If you are a tank, a Banshee's or a FoN works wonders. If Singed have no Mpen or any items to reduce MR, he is not gonna hit hard against MR targets.

If he is ubber fed, well, that's like a fed Shen (or any tank), if you just can't kill the tank late game ignore him, don't waste your burst damage on him aim for the key targets first. If things go well you should be able to finish him off.

You need ccs to disable him. You need to slow him down, stun, or whatever. Don't try to kill him by just auto attacking. Nasus slow, anivia slows & stun, ash frost arrow in lane hassle will kill him. A good nidalee rapes him hard in top lane solo 1v1.

He's not that strong in laning.

Slow Him
Stun Him
Flash out of the way and juke him (if you have enough SPEED and he doesn't have flash/ghost/exhaust up)
Ghost to run faster than him
Try to save your banshee's bubble for his flick

Or make his early laning terrible. Herass him, kill him. without AP he cannot do efficient damage without his ultimate. But a good flick to the ass with one or two teammates behind him is good enough to kill someone.

Actually, I'll have to disagree with you here. With a ranged partner in a lane ( a support babysitter is even better) Singed can do some massive work. Enemies are afraid to be flung, and they also want to stay out of Singed's poison. With a ranged lane partner harassing, Singed can take control. This allows him to free farm minions with his poison. Once he's 6 his ult gives him massive health regen, which helps a lot in stayability. Add that in with the health and mana regain of a Catalyst and you have something to worry about.

Yes, Nidalee can beat him 1v1 (she beats about everyone 1v1), but that's early and she has the ranged advantage over him. Once he starts rolling he's hard to stop. Try to kill him before 6 and whatever you do do not let him get lane control. If he does get rolling, try to avoid him. Don't chase him if he has his ult, you'll just run through his poison and probably won't be able to catch him. As FeedFest said, keep him CC'd in team fights if possible. This is hard to do, though, if he packs a cleanse since he has a speed boost AND a slow of his own.

You need to counter him by trying to pick his team mates off or killing him early. Just stay the hell away from his poison.

If you know you're going to get hit by his fling, try to maneuver yourself so that you'll get flung sideways at worst, or possibly even back towards your team if he's just mindlessly following with his spell targeting you.

Tristana or ashe
Or any other good ranged dps champions.
Singed has the disability of being kited, since he has no ranged attacks.
All he has is poison trail, A slow, Fling, And his ult.
Characters like (Ashe) can stun (Singed), or basically kite with her slow ability.

Hope it helped

O.K.

Magic resist. His main damage is from his smoke. any magic resist reduces this dramatically, and makes him almost totally redundant. Additionally, most singed players get a lot of health, due to items that give them mana and HP at the same time.

If you're a dps, a Wit's end, and/or a Hexdrinker works wonders. A tank would use a Banshee's Veil and/or a Force of Nature, and a Caster would use an Abyssal Sceptre. This reduces the damage from his smoke.

Anti HP Items like Madred's Bloodrazor help deal plenty of damage to him. Heap the damage on but don't chase him. His smoke tails behind him, so it can only be where he has just been. if you are going to chase, avoid the smoke, but that's difficult without abilities that have short range teleports, like Kassadin's riftwalk, or flash.

Slows reduce the amount of area the smoke can be in at the same time.

Additionally, he will often get banshee's veil. Use a smaller spell to get rid of the bubble.

Stunning works, mind you, stunning anyone works.

Hope this helps.

signed is kinda op atm, 4k hp with all the armors and damage just doesn't scale right in any game.
