OK, so another day i went solo top as Riven and again -surprisingly- there was Nasus who wanted to farm his Q. He claimed that he was never beat up by a Riven on solo top, i claimed i was never beat up by a Nasus on solo top.

Purely 1v1, who do you think has better odds from the beginning.
With jungler ganks on both sides, who has the better chance to survive/ensure a kill?

Who is YOUR favourite? I honestly don't know what is this solo Nasus thingy all the time, Riven is much better :P

Solo top i think it's a dead heat-- Unless that Riv is stacking AD runes i think Nasus can face tank her damage every time he goes in for Q, especially under tower.

In gank situations i think Riven's 4 mini dashes can help a lot against Nasus' Wither in an escape attempt.
Wheras in a gank against Nasus, Riven has a knockup and stun, and again the mini dashes help close despite getting Wither cast on you. Plus a long range execute gives an edge on chasing compared to Nasus' ulti that is maximized in stand-and-fight situations and not on the retreat

Riven should be in jungle, but she'd win top too.

Anyone should beat Nasus at top lane. If he uses his Q on you or spends mana withering/using his E you're already winning.

actually, who wouldn't stack AD runes on Riven when every single ability, including the shield benefits a LOT from AD?
It just happens every single time, on level one, nasus comes to give me his Q. I give him my Q three times, with three autoattacks while he is running -> riven barely hurt, nasus half hp gone

Although riven will be able to out dmg nasus early, nasus will simply rush philo stone and glacial shroud and ignore riven and farm. I think a well played nasus will be able to win.
I do play both champs and that's just my personal view.
Edit: i dont think you people understand how nasus wins his lane, not by dominating the enemy champ, he can be pushed to his tower the whole time, it doesnt matter, he just has to last hit his q and not die and he has won.

All Nasus has to do to win is start with Cloth + 5.

Riven have more chance of winning top, altho if nasus can just farm as much as Riven and just be safe, passive mode, then get frozen heart, end game hes gonna be much more usefull and stronger than Riven.

Riven should crush Nasus early. She can't really stop him from farming too much since you lose sustain but you should be able to do massive damage to him from level 1-8. I usually try to force Nasus to his tower to lose farm while warding liberally. You can escape his wither easily too. All that being said, you can't really stop Nasus outright so a good Nasus player will still farm his Q a lot.

I say Riven beats Nasus 1 on 1 early and should exploit that to keep him down most of the game. Just remember not to leave your lane if you push down his first tower :P
