It's either leona jumps to my adc and then I pull her away and E or she jumps to me and I E her and W away.

Thats how I deal with it :l

without blitz pulling, leo is just gonna passively cat/mouse melee hits with you or your adc, or just have a sandwish in the brush, makes no difference to her. Why would she engage you if your rocket hand isn't on its 20+ sec CD?

I've still got my E and R to stop her CC combo.

More or less I haven't seen any good leonas so I wouldn't know counterplay from one.

You may have, the problem with leona is that so see her at her best she needs some synergy with her lanemate.

Most of the time they just dive in without anyone following up on the intiation which gets her eaten.

Also that guide is awfully close to my Leona playstyle, are you a psychic/wizard?

but if you burn your combo on her, her adc (as a good lanemate) will be hitting your adc, who will either be hitting leo or her adc. Either way, leo spends her abilities on your adc, they win the exchange. Using your kit on a char that will reduce its effectiveness is exactly what leo would like, you can't beat her by hitting her (well you can if her ADC doesn't know what's up, or she just dives constantly without regard)

Well again I haven't seen much counterplay from Leonas so I haven't this in practice.

Me grabbing them off my adc usuallys works.

A good Leona gets her combo off faster than your pull

But good Leonas also wait for you to initiate. She's still relevant late game without items
