Kayle is one of those champs that can play any role, however her best role is top, which is where she is most commonly played. As someone stated before, you need to watch her use of her ranged ability as early game, it has a looong cd. Once it goes off, punish her. Another thing though, you were playing kog and he is one of the squishiest adc's in the game. He is easy to beat early game due to that. This is why there are team comps called "protect the kog".

I'm surprised no one's mentioned that her ult isn't 3 seconds yet. It's 2 seconds I believe, at max rank at that.

As a Kayle player myself, I can tell you that she is a champion that can do anything, but she struggles at doing anything wonderfully. Like others have already said, she is only a danger with her ranged splash attack. Once that is on cooldown, you can harass to your heart's content. She is very squishy early game and will go down hard in the late game if you can beat her in the early game.

Kayle is one of the scariest enemies to have fed, because she becomes a total monster. She's always been perfectly viable in every role, but not necessarily the strongest. As an AD, she offers surprising burst capability, but she doesn't handle sustained damage quite as well or safely (which is the AD's main role late-game). She has a pile of different possible builds, but she doesn't stack up as well late game except with insanely expensive items. If she gets fed though, she does completely obscene damage, so it's hardly surprising she could 1v4 you in midgame if fed (and you guys have poor cc).

Why did you pick a character with 0 mobility against Kayle?
"She isn't supposed to be a carry" lol

she also has a slow and a speed burst and a heal =/ but she isnt really much of a threat. her ult is weak compared to lulus ult and short too

Kayle is a hyper carry! Be warned. Best way to handle her is CC. Her ult stops damage but not crowd control. You can suppress her, stun her, or blind her when she ults, just wait it out. Her power comes from her attack speed. Slow her attack speed and you nerf her damage. I've had a lot of success with her in jungle or top.

She is really strong right now because many people are playing assassin characters and Kayle is an anti assassin. So many assasins rely on all damage and no CC, Kayle ignores damage and is vulnerable to CC. Also, silence wrecks kayle if you can silence her before she spams all her abilities.
