ok so I'm the unfortunate poppy that got paired with Oriana in top lane with swain on my team. I wasn't able to get near her and whenever I tried to initiate or farm her ball guaranteed that I would take Massive damage W/O her being in any danger of getting hit by swain. and she had the option to farm up the minon kills and only initiate when jungling panth wanted to gank.

To put it short I was helpless against her, nothing I did seemed to allow me to get close enough to do any damage and when I did get close enough she was able to ball slow/speed and run away.

I need help I've never been this helpless against any other champion I've gone up against with poppy.

P.S I hope this it the right forum

You could ask for a lane swap, roam, or you could jungle.

usually lux is really easy to dodge her CC when I'm after her and her shiny light bomb thing (I have no idea what it's call) doesn't hurt enough to be a threat to me.

As for jungling, I would have loved too, but swain was getting his ass kicked when I wasn't getting mine.

Better question. Why were you at their tower and not dodging her slow skill shots?

if your duo laning vs her you both need to attack at the same preferably from opposite sides of the minion wave. She has a very strong 1v1 kiting kit so avoid 1v1 till you know you can catch and punish her.

This would happen in the middle, I was never near her tower since she could always push minon waves.

thank you, so she's a vayne, I presume? Best way to beat her is to out damage her.
