Alright, so I just did this for the second time (I was Irelia both times). The first time was before the nerf. It does help, as he damages me less, but I realized after this game that it was never his damage, more of his cc.

If he attacks me he knocks me up and then knocks me back. If I attack him, I stun him...and then while he is stunned he knocks me up. I think he starts it right before I stun him. I am not complaining about Alistar, I just need help facing him in lane.

Hm. I would if possible try to switch lanes with somebody. That really isn't a very good match up. Unfortunately all of your skills involve getting near him which always puts you in place for a knockup/headbutt combo. I can't really think of a way you'd be able to effectively harass him, if possible a ranged character should take your place.

If you HAD to try something, I imagine Q+E leveling would yield the best result, Jump in, stun/burst, Jump out combo. Do this 3 - 4 times right after he uses his knock up on minions to avoid him hitting you with it. Headbutt does big damage but if you'd be landing 2 skills while he lands 1. One thing is you have a lot more sustainability than him. Alistar's moves use a lot of mana and if he spams them, he will be defenseless soon enough. Those are my thoughts at least.

You can't kill him if hes halfway intelligent but thats not your job as an irelia in lane.

Once you get a philo stone and lvl 6 he literally doesn't half the dmg to put you -80% hp so play smart and farm all the way to your triforce

I wasn't trying to kill him, I even tried using q on a minion and then backing off. He then just knocked me back, he didn't get off his full combo, but it is certainly not ideal. I am probably going to ask for a lane switch if this happens again, unless anyone else has some advice.
