Hey all,

I play J4 quite often, mainly in the jungle. It's pretty logical that champions with built-in flashes, which are very common these days, are effective against his ult.

What strategies do you all employ against such champions, other than the obvious wait-for-CD ploy?

Make them burn it in teamfights instead of being able to kite your team.
Also know that you can tear down your wall early, so don't stand in it alone.

Works best if you assign 1-2 targets to kill b4 a teamfight.

You either wait until they're forced to use it to escape something else, or you use it to force them to burn it.

Use E-Q and W first
theyll inevitably flash away
Now ult.

Now theyll use their real flash


90 seconds later repeat, but without their flash.

Also use it on someone near a wall so you can become a real obstacle to split their team up

J4 has 3 ways of moving himself forward counting flash, with a good aoe slow. Try making them use "flash" before u ulti.

This.

J4 has 3 gap closers with Flash, E/Q, and Ulti. Very few champions in the game have this many.

Close gap with Flash, hit with W to slow them, and start AAing them with Frozen Mallet or Red Buff.

If they don't use an escape, then you will beat them to death.

If they use an escape, you use E/Q to catch up. Continue beating.

If they use another escape, you ulti them and proceed to beat.
