I've been playing a few games in 1vs1 now with my good friend, and he's been playing AP-Sion mid and has been owning me. He just seems to stun them to low health and finish them off, or he'd do the Shield->Stun->Shield combo. Is their really a counter to AP-Sion, mid?

Yeah. Sion has terrible range and no bushes to hide in. So you simply plink away at him with your ranged attacks and stay out of stun range.

When you see his Shield come up, you back off. He either blows it up on your creeps and pushes hard or wastes it. Then, you go back and plink at him. Even if you did mess up and get in stun range, he won't be able to bring up and blow up a shield on you in time.


So as long as you aren't doing something stupid like taking another melee or short range dude mid vs him, you should be fine.
Who are you using anyways?

Yeah it depends who you're using. But something most people forget is that to counter his shield, you destroy it. If he turns it on, hit him with a spell of your own (hopefully doing similar damage) to knock it off him. You have a few seconds after he turns it on until he can reactivate it to blow it up. This just means you trade mana loss rather than dying, so get some mana regen to start with. Other than that all he can do is stun you!

A good counter in mid to Sion is Malzahar, you can out spell him with your E's mana regen, you can silence him and remove his shield with your Q if you see him coming close to stun, Your W does more damage with Sions Health constantly increasing, and your ult cancels his out, since he won't be hitting you to regain any health. Even your passive helps you, if he stuns you with a voidling out, hes going to be more cautious about getting close so that he can take voidling hits while he hits you with his shield (Although your voidling may just explode).

I'd say Morgana is a good counter to him. Just pop on your Black Shield (Your e) when you go in to place your Tainted Soil (your Q) and he can't do much since his stun will just hit your shield. That way you can farm in peace and possible harass him more.

Also no one is going to read this so WOO.

LB, Morgana, Jax, kennen, and cassio are my best picks vs ap sion mid. It simply comes down to who you are better at. Urgot can rough him up pretty badly as well.

Ranged cc, Banshees Veil, MR, Popping the shield before he's in stun range. Ranged snares are really nice in my experience, like with Morgana and Swain.
