Laning Phase Kog counters (in mid): Malzahar, Vladimir, Janna, Veigar (with clarity), Morgana, Katarina, Tryndamere.

Team-fight Phase Kog counters: Akali, Amumu, Kassadin, Katarina, Corki, Teemo, Vladimir, Warwick (if ult is ready), Xin Zhao, Tryndamere, Malzahar, Malphite.


General counters to Kog are people who can easily close the gap and spike him down in an instant, or that can hardcounter him with CC or blind.

Also: Exhaust.




And knowing is half the battle!

Yeah last night played a game with a super coward kog, and our only champ that could remotely close the distance was xin zhao, but he never did, so we got steamrolled once he got fed enough, when we started out near a 20 kill advantage. It's just gay.

Kog is also countered to a degree by getting some magic resist. Despite being a strong AD dps champion most of his damage is magic. As a tank he will melt you without it.

Miss Fortune is a decent late game counter to him as well.
Ult for longer range, which will allow you to bring him down or force him to move so he can't dps, then flash up to him and you'll win 1v1 after taking him down a bit with ult. Also, the ult will most likely scatter the team, allowing your team to get a clear shot for kog'maw.

For laning I disagree I play Vlad and Kog
Kog Kicks Vlads ass any day the the week...
Before level 7 Vlad isn't strong he's actually really weak
but after level 9 he's unstoppable in laning pretty much
But Kog can keep vlad really far form minions so vlad wont get exp

Pop Living artillery any time Vlad comes near minions and shoot him.
Vlad will not be able to deal with it due to low range and long Q cool down
Vlad is actually bad at laning before he gets some Q levels
Any champ can take him 1 on 1 at level 1 pretty much
just once he gets 4-5 levels in Q he is hard to stop..

Now If Kog lets Vlad get to level 9 then he will own the **** out of Kog
But a good Kog can make sure that doesn't happen...


As for Viegar... Viegar during laning shouldn't be doing much to other champs
he should be focused on last hitting with Q to build AP so he will be strong as **** late game

For late game counters I would add Yi

MF counters Kog. Her strut makes it so much easier to dodge his ulti.

Amumu can do well enough against cog if you use your bandage to get in close and stun with the ult. Granted you ARE going to take a **** ton of damage but you should be equipped for that anyway so its alright. I have more trouble with MF than with him, mostly because hes a coward who always hangs in groups of 2-3 and wont ever take me on alone yea I know it would be stupid to but that doesnt mean I have to be happy with it.
