I didn't realise why people ban rumble in 2000+ elo and in tournament play because hes rarely played. I just played solo top against one and im not qqing or anything but how to counter him.

assuming your a solo too player: Yorick, With Yorick you can farm under your tower easy whilst keeping enough harass to keep rumble back, but if he is over extending too much ping your jungler. Past level 6 rumble may get brave, let him tower dive you, even if he does kill you, your ult should be enough to finish him off... So 1 for 1! And a Yorick is far better later game.

He ****s on 99% of melee heroes.

Tanky dps nid or putting corki or vayne top usually shuts him down hard.

Also good riven's beat everyone.

you want GP, WW, Kennen, something that either heals a lot or has a ranged harass move. Most of his damage comes from his flamethrowers

gp: no, the shield is up every 6 seconds while his parrley is up every 5. his costs no mana. guess who will win this exchange?

ww: same thing as gp, but even worse since his 'q' is every 6 seconds. rumble can farm and harass at the same time, which presents a problem for ww (since he needs to auto-attack to heal)

kennen: more promising. rumble can hold his own for a while, but kennen will sooner or later beat him with his stun/ult

vayne: havent countered, but prolly will come down to whether or not rumble can hit his harpoons

corki: no idea

nid: cant really outheal rumbles dmg, and rumble has enough harass

yorick: flame kills all ghouls and minions alike. yorick will win til lvl 3 or 4. after that, rumble will melt his ghouls and harass yorick more than he can heal. also, yorick has a bad late game. he is good for only his ult while rumble will provide dmg output and tankiness

renekton: should destroy the rumble. his movement allows him to avoid the flame. stun guarantees the harass

riven: should destroy the rumble for same reasons as renekton. instead of a heal, she has a shield which is just as useful

tryndamere: until this patch, tryn would erase rumbles existence with his crits and sustain. not sure anymore with the recent nerfs

Nida has a lot of difficulty, rumble catches up to her in cat form and his combo (without ulti) does a lot more than nida's combo.

Singed however is just absurd vs rumble. Rumble is a chaser, which is exactly what Singed thrives on.

There really is no decisive counter to Rumble top, he is a very strong anti-melee choice for top lane. There is however plenty of champs that hold there own agaisnt him, Irelia, Singed, Kennen, Yorick... Anything with good sustain or harass will do ok, when it comes to farm. Akali doesn't hard counter rumble i dont know what that person is thinking, pre-level 6 she will be sitting under her tower.

of that list, only kennen presents a problem (around lvl 9)

irelia has a very weak early game (altho she will be able to farm at lvl 6 no matter what)

singed: rumble might as well be a ranged hero with a mini-ghost up half the time. bad matchup for singed since he cant just gas creeps with taking harass for it

yorick: ghosts melt along with minions, shield prevents harass while allow harass. not sure how yorick wins this match-up since he will run out of mana until he completes his manamune + boots


sustain is not really the answer to rumble. it's sustain + lots of dmg. rumble has no mana, so he can spam shield all day long (every 6 seconds)

*agreed with you on akali. and at lvl 6, i will have a hextech making her burst rather meaningless. oh, and that smoke bomb? good luck against flamethrower
